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.
** 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.

* 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.

** The Joker. There have been mixed views about his unconventional design is one of the biggest things detractors use against this show, with his more brutish build, bare feet, dreadlock hair and 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]]. There are those who thought this drastically different Joker was an interesting interpretation, which has given him the FanNickname "Dreadlock Joker".

* MoralEventHorizon: Joker's torture of thugs is certainly crossing this, plus what he did to Ethan. And Tony Zucco crosses it in the first ten minutes of his appearance by killing Dick Grayson's parents (before he became Robin) just because Dick called the cops when Zucco got a bit threatening.
** Joker's torture of Ethan was actually an invoked example, since he did it to prove to the police that he's more of a threat than Batman.

** Chief Rojas is practically a HateSink as he has NO redeeming qualities whatsoever as he's just a self-righteous FatBastard. Thankfully, Commissioner Gordon came into the picture.

* CompleteMonster: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker was once a man who wanted to make people laugh, but after he fell into a vat of chemicals, he became an insane, murderous MonsterClown and Batman's ArchEnemy. Devoid of any empathy, Joker commits crimes he views as "jokes" at the expense of Gotham. Terrible things he's done include poisoning people with his deadly laughing gas; putting people in various death traps; [[MindRape torturing Detective Ethan Bennett for hours]] and causing Bennett's mutation into Clayface (for no reason other than to see what it would do to him); impersonating Batman and gassing people for minor crimes; using Bane's venom to go on a rampage; [[WouldHurtAChild attempting to drop a teenage boy into a vat of chemicals]]; frequently mistreating his henchman and his girlfriend Harley Quinn, as well as abandoning them to be arrested or even to die; and filling the abandoned tunnels and mine shafts beneath Gotham with miles of dynamite to collapse the city to oblivion. That he manages to qualify despite being toned down to all get-out is a testament to how twisted a character Joker is.
