** Even for the Joker, the events of ''Return of the Joker'' were extreme. He was already dangerous and psychopathic, but the very nature of how he did it turned him into. Not even Harley Quinn gets a get out free card after helping with that. [[spoiler: Although she survives anyways, [[WordOfGod thanks to her quasi-superpowered vitality after Poison Ivy made her nervous system immune to all poisons]] [[ContinuityNod back in]] ''[[ContinuityNod Batman: The Animated Series]]''.]] Even Creator/MarkHamill, who had been voicing the Joker for years at this point, felt uncomfortable with the role this time.

* HeartwarmingInHindsight: See the cameo bit on the Trivia page? Considering all that's happened between them since this was made, [[note]]Her [[ComicBookDeath "dying"]], a rocky ending, and [[Comicbook/BatmanEternal only recently coming back]]...[[/note]] it's nice to see that there's at least one version where the two of them finally settled down together with their own life.

* CompleteMonster: ComicBook/TheJoker gets a prime piece of villainy to stick on his trophy rack from this movie by [[spoiler:capturing and subjecting Tim Drake to some truly vile torture.]]

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The PlayStation and Nintendo 64 versions had bad music, bad graphics, clunky controls, repetitive boring gameplay, broken combat, and can be started and finished within a half hour- ''''seriously''''- which is why it was given lowest scores from [=GameRankings=] and Metacritic. The Game Boy Color version fared a little better, however, but some reviews are mixed.

*** [[spoiler: Magic and aliens exist in the DCAU at the same time, along with Greek Gods and what have you. A body altering microchip is hardly unthinkable in a place where the unthinkable is another day at the office.]]

* InferredHolocaust: On two occasions, Joker uses a gigantic military orbital laser to carve a swathe of destruction through Gotham. Civilian casualties are never mentioned on either occasion, but it's a ''giant military laser'' carving through a ''major city'', often going right through buildings. One can only imagine the death toll. The commentary track notes that the laser miraculously avoided hitting a single person.

** During the earlier Batman series, Dick, Barbara and Tim were all exited and eager to join the "Bat Family". Even going as far as to continuing to fight crime despite Bruce pointing out several times that the life of a crime fighter is both dangerous and taxing. Forty years down the road, all three blame him for all their suffering. Even claiming Bruce "manipulated" them into joining the fight on crime, harsh...
