!!The comic books provide examples of:

* BaseBreaker: Misfit. According to Gail she was intentionally created to be Oracle's Bat-Mite.
* FoeYay
** Huntress and Catman (he was doing well until he licked her).
** Oracle and Calculator once met without knowing each other and immediately began flirting.
* IAmNotShazam: "Birds of Prey" is not the team's official name, and was not even mentioned until issue #86. In later issues the characters also ''specifically said'' that it was not their team name when Zinda Blake continues to use it. However, the writers themselves often seem to forget this point, as numerous characters (Both on and off the team) refer to them as 'the birds' on a semi-regular basis, and the full "Birds of Prey" title makes an occasional appearance.
* InternetBackdraft
** Before it was revealed to be a fakeout, the supposed deaths of [[spoiler: Savant and Creote]]. In the same arc, Black Canary's initial theory that White Canary was secretly [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]] did not go over well with many fans as she had already famously been turned evil in the past with disastrous results.
** Another was when Ryan Sohmer of ''The Gutters'' [[http://www.the-gutters.com/comic/127-tyler-walpole made a comment]] about the series "constantly re-launching" and "hoping it would find an audience"... only it has been relaunched as an ongoing ''once'' (not counting a couple of mini series and one-shots before the first ongoing) and the initial run lasted over 10 years and 100 issues and gained a devoted fanbase who made the new series a bestseller when it relaunched. [[FlameWar You can guess how said fans reacted to being told they don't exist by Sohmer]], especially once Sohmer's YesMan started fighting back. Sohmer did eventually admit that he was wrong.
* LesYay: Canary/Oracle leans perilously close to canon sometimes, and (According to WordOfGod) was originally supposed to lean even ''closer'' than the finished product appeared. Black Canary was once supposed to refer to herself as "75% heterosexual," leaving the other 25% up in the air. Sadly, due to placeholder dialog and script confusion it wound up "heterosexual to the bone", to GailSimone's chagrin (it was not, as many speculated, due to ExecutiveMeddling). [[http://i573.photobucket.com/albums/ss175/galateus/comics/babsdinah-25uo2a0.jpg Observe]]. This image even predates Gail Simone's run, being from the earlier Creator/ChuckDixon years.
** In the hands of some artists, [[http://gailsimone.tumblr.com/post/28133569000/ealperin-gailsimone so very very much.]]
** Renee Montoya, the second Question, who was canonically a lesbian, pretty clearly had a thing for the Huntress (who [[IncompatibleOrientation canonically was not]]), although the New 52 reboot happened before that storyline could really go anywhere.
* [[MyRealDaddy My Real Mommy]]: Despite being created by Jordan B. Gorfinkel, BOP is most associated with Gail Simone.
* NightmareFuel
** Oracle has an eidetic memory. Normally this is pretty handy, but it also means she remembers being shot by SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker as if it was five minutes ago. See also the entry on DrivenToSuicide.
** Also, the reveal of the BigBad's identity at the end of issue 12 of the relaunch: [[spoiler:Junior]]. Anyone who's read ''ComicBook/SecretSix'' will understand why that name is so pants-wettingly terrifying, made worse by the fact that enough hints are dropped before TheReveal that those who have read it will probably at least have an idea, even if not consciously.
* SoOkayItsAverage: The series after the departure of Creator/GailSimone. Unlike most series [[MyRealDaddy affiliated with one author]] the quality never descended into true inadequacy and there was never an ''en masse'' abandonment by its readers, but it never did regain that extra ''something'' that it had under Simone's pen.

!!The live-action show provides examples of:

* FoeYay: Huntress/Harley in the finale
* JustHereForGodzilla: Mark Hamill dubs over the actor playing the Joker in a flashback. Some people will have only heard of this series because of this.
* LesYay: This time leaning FAR more towards Huntress/Oracle.
* MoralEventHorizon: Harley Quinn crosses this in this continuity with the whole Guy plot.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Jesse Reese, the cop we see throughout the show, is also [[Series/CriminalMinds Derek Morgan]].
* TheScrappy: Dinah.
** RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Dinah as the show went on.
