* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Say hello to Starling. Considered one of the few positives about the New52 relaunch of the book and having a great dynamic with Black Canary - who had lost a key relationship with Barbara - Evelyn 'Ev' Crawford was fun and well-received despite apprehension about the reboot. So of course, the perfect thing to do with this brand new character was [[spoiler: throw her under the bus by making her a traitor to the Birds for Mr Freeze, of all people, despite this making very little sense in light of what we knew about Ev before the betrayal. And she hasn't been seen since]].

** Joe Flanigan (who played Sheppard in ''Series/StargateAtlantis'') guest starred as a Detective. He and Shemar Moore are walking along discussing 'meta-humans' (people with super powers) and Flanigan says "I've seen perps who can shoot lightning from their fingertips, drop from ten stories, or turn into bugs." Moore replies "One big bug, or lots of small ones?" Flanigan just says "Both." Amusing in context, but if you're a Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis fan, hilarious. Sheppard got infected by a special virus in the episode 'Conversion' and starts to turn into a big Iratus bug. This was a rip off of a plot in SG1 which had Teal'c being slowly turned into hundreds of insects. So, now, he really has seen both.

* LesYay: Canary/Oracle leans perilously close to canon sometimes, and (According to WordOfGod) was originally supposed to lean even ''closer'' than the finished product appeared. Black Canary was once supposed to refer to herself as "75% heterosexual," leaving the other 25% up in the air. Sadly, due to placeholder dialog and script confusion it wound up "heterosexual to the bone", to GailSimone's chagrin (it was not, as many speculated, due to ExecutiveMeddling). [[http://i573.photobucket.com/albums/ss175/galateus/comics/babsdinah-25uo2a0.jpg Observe]]. This image even predates Gail Simone's run, being from the earlier Creator/ChuckDixon years.

** Oracle has an eidetic memory. Normally this is pretty handy, but it also means she remembers being shot by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker as if it was five minutes ago. See also the entry on DrivenToSuicide.

* FoeYayBrokenBase: The Huntress VS Shiva duel. One side will say that Huntress had absolutely no business lasting as long as she did, to say nothing of the fact that she decked such a massively superior martial artist. The other side will counter that Huntress's insults and dirty tactics, combined with a tiny bit of luck and the fact that neither fighter really wanted to be there, broke down Shiva ''just'' enough for her to get in a couple hits. The second group would also point out that Shiva still dominated the fight and that Huntress herself repeatedly said she stood no chance.

* CommonKnowledge: In the lead-up to the show's debut, it was reported that Bruce Thomas would reprise his role from the ''Advertising/BatmanOnStarCommercials'' as Batman for the pilot. [[http://www.batpodcast.com/bruce_thomas.php Thomas himself however rebuked this, saying that it wasn't him.]]

** Tabby Brennan was the perfect foil for Huntress, since she was Huntress' [[EvilCounterpart Eviller Counterpart]], and she had a great set-up to come back. Then Sean [=McKeever=] brought her back just to kill her off in a very stupid way.

*** That in itself turned into a major case of FanDumb in some instances when Simone tried to assure fans that "they didn't know the full story" when it came to [[spoiler: Savant and Creote, all but directly stating that their death was a fakeout]]. Fans continued to insist that she was wrong for even implying that they were dead, which led to Simone, who had previously visited Scans Daily in particular to comment and participate with fans, to break off contact with them.
