* ActorAllusion:
** Dana Delany delivers the line "He laughs!" exactly as she did in ''{{Film/Tombstone}}''.
** While it's purely casual, in the Finnish dub Joker says that the Phantom looks like [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]]. Coincidence ?
* BoxOfficeBomb: Due to a lack of advertising, the movie bombed ''hard'' during its theatrical run. This didn't last forever, though, as a certain trope to be seen below indicates...
* RealitySubtext: Andrea is named after Andrea Romano, the voice casting director for the series. The entire romance plot came about because of Creator/KevinConroy ad-libbing an "Oh! Andrea" after a series of grunts. It was originally intended to be Batman getting punched, but the ad-lib made it sound [[ImmodestOrgasm a little different]].
* SpoiledByTheMerchandise: Creator/{{Kenner}}'s figure of the titular villain revealed that [[spoiler:"he" was actually Andrea Beaumont, Bruce Wayne's LoveInterest.]]
* VindicatedByCable: The movie turned a ''huge'' profit when available on VHS, earning ''millions'' more than it did while in theaters.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The film was going to be completely computer generated, but that was dropped for traditional cel-animation. The CG buildings during the opening credits are an artifact from that plan.
* YouLookFamiliar: Andrea is voiced by Dana Delany, who later became more famous as the voice of Lois Lane in ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries''. In fact, WordOfGod has stated that it was her stellar performance here that caused them to pursue her for the role of Lois in the first place. Bruce even had a brief relationship with Lois.
* The fighting style Bruce was shown practicing was very close to Taekwondo, despite him calling it "Jui Jitsu". The move Andrea performed on him, however, ''was'' from Jui Jitsu.
