** In a VerySpecialEpisode about gun violence, when Jimmy decided to lower his gun, his bullies decided to tackle him on the ground, setting the gun off, and hitting Richie. Another FacePalm worthy moment is when Jimmy pulled a gun earlier, they asked what it is.
*** May be justified by them simply not believing he of all people brought a gun.

* {{Narm}}: In the episode with the bullied kid who brings a gun to school, at one point the gun goes off. It's angled up in the air at the time, yet somehow Richie ends up getting shot in the leg. Richie's reaction to getting shot is something like "It hurts! It really hurts! [[ThisIsReality It's not like on TV]]!"

* HarsherInHindsight: In one episode, Adam Evans insists on using fireworks for his concert despite the warnings from his crew about using them on a small stage. When the fireworks goes off, they end up setting the place on fire. This became a whole lot harsher when the Rhode Island nightclub "The Station" got set on fire in February 2003 during a Great White concert, and killed at least 100 people, due to a combination of polyurethane insulation and the band's use of pyrotechnics on a smaller then normal stage.

** In an episode where Static worked with Batman, he noticed Robin was absent and asked where he was. Bruce answered ''With the [[ComicBook/TeenTitans Titans]]. You might meet them someday.'' While the DCAU never made a ''Teen Titans'' cartoon, they were at least right that Static would join them in the comics several years later.
* IAmNotShazam: He's just "Static", not "Static Shock". It's gotten so bad, even the ''comics'' have made that mistake.

* MinorityShowGhetto: While it was one of the highest rated cartoons on Creator/KidsWB when it aired, it could not secure enough merchandising deals to keep it alive (though it did run a respectable four seasons, a standard run for a lot of cartoon shows). It comes into this because the show's contemporaries (XMenEvolution, WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond) didn't suffer the same problems.

** In one episode, Virgil's sister, Sharon'' suspects that he is Static. The problem? She blurts out his identity at every given opportunity ''in public'' while cheering him on from the sidelines. Admittedly, people were running and screaming, trying to get away from the destruction of the fight, so they may not have noticed. Still a stupid thing to do, though.

** Richie counts too. He was so popular with fans that he was promoted to a superhero in the third season; show creator Dwayne McDuffie once said that Richie's popularity alone was what got them a fourth season of the show.
* FanonDiscontinuity: Not a lot of fans were happy with the Superman crossover that continued the Darcy/Toyman storyline. Mainly because it made the former into a villain who was willing to take over a teenage girl's body when in the Superman series she was more sympathetic and only wanted a life of her own.

** Also, at the time of that episode's airing, NeilPatrickHarris was a perfect choice for that role - a washed up child star who was only known for one role. Then, a few years later, ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'' came along and shot him back into the spotlight.
