* {{Earworm}}: The Japanese Rap that plays when in the climax when the giant robots combine under Joker's control is very, very catchy.

Added DiffLines:

** [[Manga/JojosBizarreAdventurePhantomBlood A monkey cannot stand against a Human?]] Well, Dio, since [[Creator/TakehitoKoyasu you're]] the monkey now, you might want to revise your words...


** Bane as a sumo wrestler. He looks ridiculous, but its so over the top its likable.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: The idea of the Joker [[spoiler: hypnotizing himself sane so that he could fool Batman]] could make a pretty interesting story-line all in itself.

** Some people have admitted that the story's setting leaning so heavily on SchizoTech might perhaps be ''too'' much of a good thing, and the time travel plotline as unnecessary, preferring a more straightforward, slightly more realistic Elseworlds period piece like ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanGothamByGaslight Gotham by Gaslight.]]'' "Batman in a JidaiGeki samurai story" and "Batman in a ridiculous, over-the-top HumongousMecha anime story" are both great ideas, but 80 minutes isn't quite enough to properly do ''both'' of them justice.


* WhatDoYouMeanItWasn'tMadeOnDrugs: This movie takes place in feudal Japan, and involves Joker as a daimyo with combat skills equal to Batman's, Bane as a sumo wrestler, a re-purposed Arkham Asylum converted into one of several mobile mechanized castles that all combine into a gigantic battle robot, a magic flute that can command millions of monkeys to work together like a colony of ants to build a large humanoid gestalt form, a nearly endless swarm of bats that combine with the aforementioned monkeys to build an even larger (and indestructible, or at least flame-proof) giant Batman . . . [ArsonMurderAndJaywalking and a cheerful and playful Damian Wayne who loves his pet monkey.] If the producers weren't on drugs, maybe they ''should'' have been, so the end result might have come out a little more sane!

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that after Joker commandeers Grodd's fortress and thus the resulting Combined Mecha, he abruptly drapes a balloon tarp with his face over the command deck to give the robot his own personal touch.


*** Grodd: "Says the cat burglar in the cat costume."

*** Grodd: "Says --> '''Grodd''': Says the cat burglar in the cat costume."

Added DiffLines:

** On the other hand, what may be a by-product of this is that at least in Netflix, the English subtitles don't match the English audio track half the time; For example, Joker's early line "I have to say I've really enjoyed the sushi here" has the subtitle "I thought you'll be here, too. So I was looking for you." It's usually the same but it's a bit irritating if you use both the English audio and subtitle track.


* LoveItOrHateIt: A good section of ''Batman'' fans were expecting another serious piece to add in the Dark Knight mythos and hated the movie for how over the top it when and how it handled the climax. Fans of anime, however, enjoyed the movie for how it didn't take itself to seriously and the inventive ways of handling the characters.

* HypeBacklash: Despite the huge initial amounth of interest in this movie, after its premiere many fans find that the premise of the movie is either ridiculous or at best is SoOkayItsAverage.


** Damien using a magic flute to summon armored monkeys? Alright, I can deal with it. The monkeys standing on each other shoulders to form a giant robot monkey? This is getting silly. Bats join forces with the monkey to form a giant batman? Check please!
