* BaseBreakingCharacter: The show's version of Alfred definitely suffers from LoveItOrHateIt. Some people like the different interpretation of his character, while others think that he's too different to even be considered Alfred. Others just think he looks weird.

* LoveItOrHateIt: The show's animation has been hit with this hard. While the show's storytelling and characters have been mostly well-received and the music and voice acting are almost unanimously praised, the CGI animation and overall visual style has drawn both praise and criticism, with some of the latter coming even from fans of the show. Those who like it praise it for its fluid movement, impressive fight scene choreography, unique character designs and dynamic use of lighting. The detractors criticize the CGI as cheap-looking compared to other shows such as ''WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime'', ''WesternAnimation/StarWarsTheCloneWars'', and even the similarly-styled ''WesternAnimation/GreenLanternTheAnimatedSeries''. They also feel Gotham is too empty, and others still dislike the character designs in general. Another vocal section just hates it because [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks it's CGI]].

* CompleteMonster: ComicBook/{{Anarky}} is Batman's ArchEnemy, the most recurring villain in the series, and [[AdaptationalVillainy a far cry]] from his comic version. An utter madman who views himself and Batman as two kings on a chess board, one representing order and peace, the other [[AnarchyIsChaos chaos and destruction]], Anarky commits all of his crimes out of [[AttentionWhore a pathological love for attention]] and [[CardCarryingVillain a sheer enjoyment]] for being [[ForTheEvulz evil]]. In his first appearance, Anarky grants two petty crooks high-tech weaponry before sending them on a rampage through Gotham, after which he rigs two gondolas filled with people to explode unless Batman can stop them in time. Later, Anarky pits Batman and the League of Assassins against each other as part of a plan to unleash a lethal plague onto all of Gotham, and attempts to bomb a populated park [[CopKiller filled with police officers]] while trying to [[FrameUp frame Batman]]. At the end of the series, Anarky makes [[TheCorrupter corrupting]] District Attorney [[ComicBook/TwoFace Harvey Dent]] into evil his personal pet project, and successfully drives Dent to institute martial law in Gotham while threatening the lives of all those who stand in his way. In the sequel tie-in comic, Anarky unlocks every door in Gotham City for a single night, then tries to spur all of the citizens into a panic-induced riot that he hopes will tear Gotham apart in the ultimate display of chaos. Though [[SoftSpokenSadist soft-spoken]] and [[FauxAffablyEvil eerily polite]], Anarky is the most wicked foe Batman faced in the series, having no empathy, no mercy, and no motive at all except his basic whims.

** Katana's costume: some fans are fine with the change or were at least willing to accept a new direction in the design. Others feel the costume is much less visually interesting and seeing it as less Katana and more [[Film/TheDarkKnightRises Anne Hathaway's Catwoman]] by way of MovieSuperheroesWearBlack.

** Lady Shiva. She's a stone-cold {{Badass}} who instills fear into an entire roomful of [[GratuitousNinja ninjas]] that don't even flinch when ordered to fight ''Batman'' or his equally tough protege. She shows no remorse over ruthlessly overthrowing Silver Monkey and [[spoiler:sucking out Dr. Ravencroft's soul]]. She even manages to give a solid ass-kicking to both Batman ''and'' Katana, highly skilled fighters who outnumbered her two-to-one. The clincher? She sports a tight, midriff-bearing, [[{{Gainaxing}} Gainax-approved]] outfit while doing all of this.

** Likewise, Daedalus Boch and Junkyard Dog weren't created for the show but are actually comic villains. They appeared first in ''ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell''.


Added DiffLines:

** Ra's al Ghul breaking out Batman's foes from prison, as seen in "Reckoning", was also done in Batman #400, "Resurrection Night".

* {{Misblamed}}: Like ''Teen Titans Go!'', this is blamed for ''GLTAS'' cancellation when in reality it was cancelled for a lack of toys.

* MagnificentBastard: Deathstroke. A DangerouslyGenreSavvy KnightOfCerebus and MasterOfDisguise, who excels in XanatosSpeedChess. Episodes "Epitaph" "Twist" "Alone" and the fact that he's [[spoiler:Dane Lisslow]] turn him from a one-shot villain to the arc's BigBad.

** The show not using classic foes like Penguin, Two-Face, or even ''SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker'' in this series, in favor of altered versions of lesser-known villains. Some feel happier with this on the other hand, arguing that it gives a chance for his lesser-known rogues to shine.

* ReplacementScrappy: Quite a few people didn't seem to care much for Anarky in his first appearance, feeling that he's got a weak gimmick (the Anti-Batman aspect) and that he's not terribly distinguishable from [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Batman's usual nemesis]], which isn't helped by [[CompositeCharacter the use of said nemesis's traits]].
