YMMV: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader?
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: DCAU Joker is depicted as a completely separate entity sitting next to Harley during the funeral service, and his sole line of dialogue sounds exactly like what you'd expect
    Harley: "I can't believe he's dead, puddin."
    Joker: "Well I can't believe he didn't die the first time he dressed up as a giant bat and jumped off the roof."
  • Nightmare Fuel: Alfred's eulogy where he reveals himself to be The Joker. That's right. The villain who crippled, stripped and possibly molested Barbara Gordon, beat up Jason Todd with a crowbar and blew him up before luring a young psychiatrist into a life of violence and cruelty was just Bruce's butler playing a part. Fortunately, all of the villains and victims were just playing a part, too.
  • What Could Have Been: Bat-Mite was originally to appear in the story.
