** The Penguin. Some fans found him to be an interesting take on the character for his fighting skills, his two henchgirls, having a family feud with the Waynes, and being a bit of a throwback to the BatmanReturns incarnation where Penguin is portrayed as more of a greedy slob and less of an aristocrat. Others, however, believed him to be one of the most annoying and overused characters in the series and found it really absurd that a short fat guy like Penguin could leap twenty feet in the air and fight Batman(and sometimes even get the better of him) like a Shaolin kung fu master.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: According to the writers, Hush was supposed to make his official animated appearance in the show and act as the BiggerBad in the series. Unfortunately, there wasn't any demand for him and he never came.

** After the mixed reception of the Joker in Season 1, his feral persona, outfit, and combat skills were toned down to be truer to his traditional depiction.
** Season 3 onwards has a much more traditional Batman feel to it, with the removal of Ellen Yin and Chief Rojas, plus the introduction of Batgirl.

** A villain that stands out is Bane. In his first appearance, he was TheJuggernaut, defeated Batman in a CurbStompBattle and was only defeated via Batman using a robot suit. After this, he was mostly reduced to just having his Venom shorted out in seconds or busting open bank vaults for C-list villains.

** The Joker. His unconventional design is one of the biggest things detractors use against this show, with his more brutish build, bare feet, dreadlock hair, red eyes and also monkey-like mannerisms. His first costume was also unlike any previous look, though [[AuthorsSavingThrow in later seasons he got the purple suit back and his feral behavior being toned down]]. However, there are those who thought this drastically different Joker was an interesting interpretation, which has given him the FanNickname "Dreadlock Joker".

Added DiffLines:

** [[CanonForeigner D.A.V.E]] is fairly well-liked for his MagnificentBastard scheme and a cool design despite being a one-off villain killed at the end of his debut. Deducing Batman's identity and origin probably helps, along with his VillainousBreakdown deconstructing the GenericDoomsdayVillain and contributing to Hugo Strange's popularity.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The female villains. Catwoman, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn were never fully utilized as major characters after their debut episodes and never made many appearances as the show went on.

Added DiffLines:

** Dr. Hugo Strange is misused in the show's final episodes, where his original characterization as a dangerously unethical psychiatrist is laid by the wayside because there were no other generic {{Mad Scientist}}s lying around.

* BadassDecay: ''All of Batman's Rogues gallery'' suffered from heavy downgrades as the show continued. This comes to a high point in ''Rumors'', where Batman and Robin take on the entire villain line up, defeating all of them with ease. However, [[KarmaHoudini Catwoman]] may be the only exception since she never has a pathetic moment in the entire series and always gets away. Sadly, she never turns up again after this particular episode.
** While he may not be considered part of the normal Rogues gallery, Hugo Strange was another exception, becoming even ''more'' dangerous as the show progressed through nothing but [[MagnificentBastard the power of his mind]]. He was the only other villain present in ''Rumors'' besides Catwoman to have the sense to avoid the big fight altogether.

* VillainSue: Catwoman is the only character with no backstory, solely exists to be a threat to Batman, never gets punished for her crimes, and mostly serves as just being a selfish villain trying to steal valuables.
