** 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 Pennyworths, 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.

** The titular newcomer in "Rumors" spends most of the episode as a CreepyAwesome OneManArmy (voiced by Creator/RonPerlman, no less). Until the end, where all of his captured RoguesGallery are accidentally freed, and he quickly becomes a DirtyCoward and is last seen having a whiny VillainousBreakdown upon being arrested.

** Season 3 onward has a much more traditional Batman feel to it, with the removal of Ellen Yin and Chief Rojas, plus the introduction of Batgirl and Commissioner Gordon becoming a regular.

** After the mixed reception of the Joker in his debut, his feral persona, outfit, and combat skills were toned down later in Season One to be truer to his traditional depiction.

* BrokenBase: Seasons 1 and 2 versus Seasons 3, 4, and 5. Fans of the latter praise the generally more mature stories, more fleshed out characters, and more traditional Batman cast, and accuse the first two seasons of being simplistic and poorly written. Fans of the former praise the emphasis on inventive action scenes, original characters, and unique takes on the Batman mythos, and accuse the later seasons of abandoning what made the show interesting in an effort to shoehorn it into a more homogenous DCAU mold.

** The show was great at introducing new villains, but struggled with follow-ups; the majority of villains only have one or two episodes (including their debut) before getting relegated to team-ups and cameos, including A-listers such as Bane and Poison Ivy.

Part of the reason Joker and Penguin were so contentious is because fans felt that they were overused in comparison to other villains.

** 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.
