* MoralEventHorizon: Joker takes a running leap over this when he [[spoiler:murders Dick/Robin and Babs/Batgirl with homicidal glee. You can hardly fault Bats for killing him after that]]
** [[spoiler:Jimmy Olsen crosses it when he casually murders Kal-El's Amish foster parents]]
* {{Narm}}: [[spoiler: Batman having an HeroicBSOD that borders on [[DespairEventHorizon DEH crossing]] after the deaths of Dick and Babs and his murder of SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker]] is NOT funny. The ridiculous expression in his face when [[spoiler: Alfred and Selina]] try to make him react '''is''', though.
** [[spoiler:Selina dressing up as Robin to try and get him to come to terms with himself could also count]]
* {{Sequelitis}}: ''Another Nail.''
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: AlanDavis said in an interview that Oliver Queen's brief appearance here as a superhero-hating extremist was not inspired by his appearance in TheDarkKnightReturns; Davis had forgotten all about that. He mentions that if he had remembered, he would have ensured that Oliver was missing the same arm as in Returns.
