* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: The trailer for the season 2 finale made it clear that [[spoiler:Donna]] was going to be the Titan who fell. The biggest giveaway was [[spoiler:the shot of the casket, which had her lasso next to it,]] and further indications were seen with [[spoiler:the hearse being at an airport where her body would be flown to Themyscira, Dawn kneeling in front of where her costume is stored, and Donna not being present with the other heroes in the funeral shot at the end.]]

** Chelsea Zhang had a short scene where she had to slow dance because the scene involved Rose trying to seduce Jason Todd, and in some of her character's fighting scenes, she does many complicated dance movements; that's because Chelsea is a dancer in RealLife, not just an actress.

* AwesomeDearBoy: Curran Walters admitted that before starring in the show, he wasn't much of an comic book fan, but after being cast as Jason Todd, he started to study the character and read comic books about him until the actor became a fanboy himself. He often expressed how much he enjoys playing the vigilante and how he would love to see stories like ''ComicBook/ADeathInTheFamily'' getting adapted just to see the character transitioning into Red Hood. Curran even cosplayed as [[https://www.instagram.com/p/B4BN8SVlW6a/?hl=ro Robin]] and [[https://twitter.com/getFANDOM/status/1065400740984700928 Red Hood]] from ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight''. His Instagram is also full of photos with him playing Jason Todd.

Added DiffLines:

* ActorSharedBackground: Conor Leslie is a part-time photographer, just like Donna Troy.

Added DiffLines:

* CelebrityVoiceActor: The Japanese dub features two of them: Hawk is voiced by the TV and theatre actor Yu Kamio, while Dove II is voiced by TV actress Akane Matsui.

Added DiffLines:

** In addition to this, it was also confirmed that there would have been an AuthorsSavingThrow for the [[TookALevelInJerkass increased levels of jerk attitude]] and [[UnintentionallyUnsympathetic unsympathetic moments intended to be sympathetic]] in that season, Raven's powers were becoming a HatePlague to her and those around her.


* This is notably one of the few live-action TV adaptations that's allowed to outright use Franchise/{{Batman}} complete with onscreen appearances, whereas DC normally enforces an embargo to prevent audiences from being "confused" by the different continuities ([[ViewersAreMorons apparently they don't think audiences are smart enough to know what an alternate continuity is]])[[note]]this had the side effect of ComicBook/GreenArrow being used in his place, most notably seen in ''Series/{{Smallville}}''; ironically, for a while, Green Arrow himself was seen as a poor man's substitute for Batman[[/note]]. The fact that it's separate from the ''Series/{{Arrowverse}}'' and is airing on DC's private streaming service may have something to do with it.

However, he was mostly TheGhost in season 1, played by stunt actors in a hallucation in the season 1 finale, whereas in season 2, he does physically appear, but ''only'' as Bruce Wayne.



*** The Doom Patrol from the SpinOff series would have appeared. They would arrive courtesy of Negative Man's powers, establishing TheMultiverse and showcasing the team there as from a different universe rather than the iteration seen earlier in the series. They would have also joined the battle against Trigon.

They would have also joined the battle against Trigon. Because this was cut, ''Series/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths2019'' winds up being how ''Titans'' and ''Doom Patrol'' are established as separate instead.


Added DiffLines:

*** ''Series/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths2019'' uses footage of Hawk and Jason from the original finale due to the cast's unwillingness to film new footage for the event, repurposed to show the two instead seeing the red sky of their Earth being destroyed.

Added DiffLines:

** WordOfGod confirmed Deathstroke survived the events of season 2, but that the scene actually ''showing'' him waking up from his defeat was cut from the finale to avoid confusing people into thinking he would directly return in season 3 (and to avoid it distracting from Blackfire's new BigBad status in that season).


** Garfield Logan is supposedly a teenager, but is played by twenty three-year-old Creator/RyanPotter in his introduction. This was presumably done because of the character's frequent nude scenes, which would have been harder to film with an underage actor.

* LyingCreator: Brenton Thwaites raised a lot of fans' hackles when he said that Dick split from Batman because Batman became a killer, yet nothing in the show outright confirms this and when Batman finally appears, Dick is shocked that he violates his one "no-kill" rule against both criminals and cops. Even then, this is all inside Dick's head courtesy of Trigon.

Though to be fair, given all the changes the show has gone through behind the scenes, Thwaites' comment may be less a "lie" and more of a WhatCouldHaveBeen.


*** Dick was voiced by the voice actor of his Nightwing version in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.

*** Dick was voiced by Sergio Cantú, the voice actor of his Nightwing version in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.


*** Mostly averted by the Brazilian dub, in which, of the four protagonists, only Raven didn't have a RoleReprise. Gar and Kory got the same voices from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', while Dick was voiced by the voice actor of his Nightwing version in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.

Added DiffLines:

** As mentioned above, the Brazilian dub reprises the voices of the main team, except for Raven.
*** Gar and Kory got the same voices from ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'': Charles Emmanuel and Luisa Palomanes, respctively. It works well because they use their natural voices here, while, in the cartoon, they raised the pitch.
*** Dick was voiced by the voice actor of his Nightwing version in the second season of ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''.
*** Ricardo Schnetzer had not only voiced Slade in the ''Teen Titans'' cartoon, but he had also voiced previous ''live-action'' versions of Slade as well, in ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' and in TheStinger of the movie ''Film/JusticeLeague2017''.
*** Speaking of which, Jorge Lucas, who had voiced Batman in the Franchise/DCExtendedUniverse, voices Bruce Wayne here.


* RoleReprise: A very interesting cross-continuity one happens in the Latin American Spanish dub: Bruce Wayne is voiced by Sergio Gutierrez Coto, who already voiced him in the dubs of ''Film/TheDarkKnightTrilogy'' films.
