* EscapistCharacter: The entire League. They are an NGOSuperpower with the best minds and best technology gathered in one place, and individually and collectively defend the world from multiple threats and carry out their tasks with competency and efficiency, and by Season 5 shut down single-villain crime altogether and more or less keep the world safe in 9-5 shifts. It's about the only time you see superheroes actually coming close to ending crime altogether and in a manner that is believable.

* GatewaySeries: The Justice League show was the main exposure many people had to the wider parts of DC Universe. It was the first exposure many had of Green Lantern and the Corps (see AdaptationDisplacement above), Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, J'onn J'onzz and in the Unlimited phase, the Question, Green Arrow, Black Canary and Booster Gold among many others. Likewise, it introduced many unknown and little regarded areas such as Amanda Waller and Suicide Squad, Vandal Savage (who was once seen as PoorMansSubstitute to Ra's Al Ghul even if he came first), Solomon Grundy, Dr. Destiny and Amazo.

* SignatureScene: Several:
** The intro especially the PowerWalk of the Seven as the sun rises with their monumental silhouettes enlarging in synch with the theme music.
** The Flash defeating Brainthor by running several times around the world and nearly bonding with the Speed Force.

** Batman and Lord Batman having a dialogue match in ''A Better World''
** The Question going through everyone's trash.

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Though this probably wasn't intentional, the first episode can fairly easily be seen as having a ''pro-nuclear weapons'' slant.
** Although in a universe where alien supergods regularly try to conquer the Earth (not to mention all the ''ordinary'' alien threats that try to conquer regularly), having extremely powerful weapons (such as nukes) probably isn't a bad idea.

** The Lex Luthor in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'' was a Kingpin-esque GreaterScopeVillain who was often dwarfed and outsmarted by Metallo, Joker and Brainiac and was [[SympatheticIneffectualVillain often saved by Superman from his own stupidity]].

** Vandal Savage, especially the DCAU, for being the rare single villain who is a League-level threat by himself (even Luthor is only a major threat when combined with Brainiac and the Legion of Doom) and who is an Immortal caveman with a HealingFactor that makes Wolverine's look like chump change. Like ComicBook/DoctorDoom, he's a villain who can fit in a wide range of plots, from AlternateHistory (''The Savage Time''), to James Bond international intrigue (''Maid of Honour'') to post-apocalyptic buddy comedy [[spoiler:with Superman in ''Hereafter'']] and his appearances are considered among the best episodes even if [[SmallRoleBigImpact he appeared in just three of them]].

* CantUnHearIt: Like with many DCAU voice actors, this show has a large supply of people imagining the voice actors from this show as their comic counterparts and viewing them as their definitive voice actors, including Creator/SusanEisenberg as Wonder Woman, Creator/MichaelRosenbaum as the Wally West Flash, Creator/PhilLaMarr as John Stewart, and Creator/MariaCanalsBarrera as Hawkgirl. Thanks to his performances in this series, ''WesternAnimation/SupermanVsTheElite'' and ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'', Creator/GeorgeNewbern has also begun to overtake his predecessor, Creator/TimDaly, as Superman's definitive voice actor for many fans.

** The Thanagarians in ''Starcrossed'' get this from a large number of fans, despite the fact that they considered ''destroying earth'' an acceptable sacrifice for winning their war over the Gordanians. In addition to that, being shift and sneaky (with Hro lying to Shayera and clearly avoiding telling her the truth about the Bypass), general superior racists not to Earthlings but also to Martians and Kryptonians (such as when Paran Dul mocks J'onn's interest in Thanagarian tech) and using human slave labour to build their bypass while converting Earth into a totalitarian government. Fans justify this by insisting that the Gordanians are AlwaysChaoticEvil basing themselves entirely on the words of the Thanagarians (who are proven UnreliableNarrator) which doesn't even square with what we see. A later episode, ''Hunter's Moon'' says the Gordanians defeated the Thanagarians and have conquered the world, but the existence of a Resistance implies that the Gordanians are conquerors which makes them bad guys but far less dangerous than the Thangarians who wanted to exterminate a random planet ''just to win a war''.

* AngstWhatAngst: In the JLU episode "Epilogue". Terry takes the fact that [[spoiler: Waller tried to have his parents killed]] surprisingly well. This may be due to the fact she ''didn't'' and thus has no reason to be as angry he would've had the plan gone through.

** The Justice Guild is surprisingly quick to accept that [[spoiler:they died in a nuclear war, one of their fans brought them back to life and has them go through the motions of saving the city. They accept the explanation readily after seeing the newspaper recording their deaths. When Ray attacks the Justice League, the Guild quickly decides that it's more important to save the world again than to preserve their own lives.]]

** Ace of the Royal Flush Gang. Poor, poor Ace... [[spoiler:As she described it in "Epilogue," she was a ChildSoldier who was forced by Cadmus to do tests, to play their games and to move what they wanted. They robbed her of a childhood. Then the Joker tried to use her in a scheme to hurt others, and when she was free she only wanted friends. The only people that would stay with her were criminals, just to have her powers. After all this, she develops an aneurysm that is most likely incurable since Waller didn't even mention operating on Ace to save her life, and is scared. She bonds with Batman who comes to convince her to change the world back to normal before she dies.]]
