*** Worse still isn't even from an AlternateContinuity, but rather SequelSeries ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode as the episode [[Recap/BatmanBeyondS2E14Eyewitness "Eyewitness"]], [[spoiler:as Barbara Gordon herself fulfills the role that she feared her father would play in the former before Terry proves that Spellbinder faked Mad Stan's death. Though likely her bad relationship with Bruce clouded her judgement.]]

* CantUnhearIt: Many fans consider Creator/KevinConroy's Batman voice to be '''the''' voice of the character, and hear just about any dialogue from Batman in Conroy's voice. The same goes for Creator/MarkHamill's Joker.

** Mr. Freeze was just another villain with a lame gimmick before ''[=BTAS=]'' came along. Just a few years before, he was shown in ComicBookLimbo in ''ComicBook/AnimalMan'', remarking that nobody remembers him. His reinterpretation in this series gave him such popularity that he is now considered iconic, and the version of his origin story depicted in the show is now considered canon for the wider DC universe.

** The episode "[[Recap/TheAdventuresOfBatmanAndRobinE19DeepFreeze Deep Freeze]] could be titled as "Batman predicted ''Videogame/{{Bioshock}}''" due to the similarities between both stories and setting. A rich, ambitious, [[UsefulNotes/{{Objectivism}} Objectivist]] magnate creates an Art Deco Underwater City for him and those he invites to escape the corrupt surface world. There, he and his fellow members create a plethora of advanced robotics and genetic engineering that inevitably results in the end of the city and its founder. The fact Grant Walker and Andrew Ryan look like an evil Creator/WaltDisney helps the comparison.

** Batman's origin story in this continuity (as well as others), as of July 20, 2012. In this continuity, Batman's parents were murdered by a thug (implied to be Joe Chill, but he was never named) shortly after seeing a film. The film he saw? Gray Ghost, which was the in-universe inspiration for that continuity's Batman. Flash forward to July 20, 2012, several people were killed by a madman in a shooting at an AMC theater in Aurora, Colorado. The movie that was being shown on that date? A midnight showing of ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises''.

Added DiffLines:

** The episode "Christmas With The Joker" becomes Hilarious In Hindsight after watching "The Man Who Killed Batman." During the Joker's funeral services for Batman (and Sid), he suggests hitting Batman in the face with a cyanide pie. Guess he thought of it AFTER he'd already successfully nailed him with a pie in the earlier episode.

** While "Over The Edge" is by no means hilarious ''at all'' as a standalone episode, it is a bit funny when you put it in context of the DCAU as a whole and notice its marked similarity to the plot of the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'' episode "Eyewitness", which is especially ironic since in the latter, Barbara Gordon herself fulfills the role that she feared her father would play in the former. Though likely her bad relationship with Bruce clouded her judgement.

** Another criticism is that TNBA had more Batfamily or villain-centric storylines than ones focused on Bruce. Many note that WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague and even WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond fleshed out Bruce's personality better than his own sequel series did. Another criticism is that Bruce obviously TookALevelInJerkass in TNBA whereas in BTAS, Bruce managed to be serious but still had lightness, warmth and a generally friendly nature to Alfred and Robin. While the DCAU eventually fit this as part of Batman's overall tragic MythArc, the fact that the episodes rarely addressed this directly and have Batman reflect on his own changes makes some feel that it was highly contrived.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Batman: the Animated Series'' was a huge leap forward in its depiction of action and drama in a superhero cartoon. A modern audience, however, may not be as impressed with it, given how much further superhero shows have come in terms of darkness and drama since then. A few of them ("I've Got Batman in My Basement" comes to mind) actually have more in common with the corny kiddie shows they were trying to replace than with the newer shows they inspired, and are now an Old Shame to the animators.
