    • "#DCSuperHeroBoys" was released on the app on September 6, 2019, a day before its TV debut.
    • Advertisement:
    • "#AllyCat", "#Retreat", and "#DinnerForFive" were all released on the app on March 6, 2020. Two days before its TV debut for the first episode, nine days before for the second one, and sixteen days before for the last one.
    • "#LivingTheNightmare", "#AllAboutZee", and "#TweenTitans" were put on the app on March 27, 2020. Just two days before its TV airdate in the case of the first episode, nine days before for the second one, and over two weeks for the last one.
    • "#EmperorPenguin", "#BreakingNews", "#CrashCourse", and "#HousePest" were put on the app on April 17, 2020. The first came out on TV two days later. The second came out on TV 9 days later. The third came out on TV sixteen days later. The fourth comes out on September 20, 2020, over five months later.
    • A bunch of episodes came out on the Cartoon Network app on September 18, 2020, all before their official TV release. They are "#ItsComplicated" (September 20) , "#TheBirdAndTheBee" , "#FantasticBeastsAndHowToFindThem" (both September 27), "#AwesomeAuntAntiope" (December 19), and "#SchoolGhoul" (October 4).
  • He Also Did:
  • Irony as She Is Cast: Poison Ivy and Jessica Cruz have a somewhat frosty dynamic, while Cristina Milizia and Myrna Velasco are best friends in real life.
  • Meaningful Release Date:
    • The show officially premiered on March 8, 2019, which was International Women's Day, which was fitting for a show about girl power.
    • "#Frenemies", featuring both the DC Super Hero Girls and Super Villain Girls, came out on October 11, 2019, also known as International Day Of The Girl.
    • "#AwesomeAuntAntiope", featuring a special-guest voice-acting by Lilly Aspell, and "#TheFreshPrincessOfRenFaire", the finale episode of Season 1, both aired in the U.S. on December 2020 in tandem with the (delayed) worldwide release of Wonder Woman 1984.
  • Non-Singing Voice: Sendhil Ramamurthy voices Ra's Al Ghul normally, but Jason C. Miller voices him when singing.
  • The Other Darrin:
  • Out of Holiday Episode: "#ItsComplicated" is a Valentine's Day episode, yet it came out in September 2020.
  • Out of Order:
    • The episode "#Beeline" featured Harley Quinn, Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Giganta, Star Sapphire, and Livewire as all already part of a villain team as well as the Super Hero Girls being familiar with them when it first aired. Prior to this however, only Star Sapphire had been formally introduced as a villain in the show proper in #HateTriangle. Livewire, Giganta, and Catwoman make their debut as villains in "#ShockItToMe", "#SheMightBeGiant", and "#FightAtTheMuseum" respectively, all of which though aired after "#Beeline". Furthermore in "#FightAtTheMuseum", not only does Catwoman mention having just recently arrived in Metropolis from Gotham but at the end of the episode, she states she needs to find "new friends" after her encounter with the Super Hero Girls. "#Beeline" being out of order is ultimately showcased by the later aired two part episode "#Frenemies". Not only does "#Frenemies" mark Harleen just having moved to Metropolis but it also features the formation of the villain team.
    • "#SheMightBeGiant" is chronologically where Bumblebee debuts her proper suit that's been upgraded from the one she wore in the premiere episodes of the show proper. This episode however aired after a number of episodes that featured Bumblebee already in her new suit.
  • Playing Against Type:
  • Recycled Script: The short that was shown in front of Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, #TheLateBatsby, shares its plot (Batgirl tries to meet up with her friends to fight a criminal, only to get there before them) with one of the Super Best Friends Forever shorts.
  • Refitted for Sequel: Okay, it's not a sequel, but the same idea applies. Back when Lauren tried turning Super Best Friends Forever into a series, she imagined a somewhat frosty dynamic between Donna and Diana. She used this dynamic here, but with Diana and Hippolyta.
  • Role Reprise:
  • Schedule Slip:
    • "#HousePest" and "#LeagueOfShadows" were supposed to air on May 10 and 17th (2020), respectively, but both were taken off the schedule for ThunderCats Roar. They didn't air until September 20 and August 22 respectively.
    • "#AwesomeAuntAntiope" was meant to air on September 28, 2020, but it was taken off and eventually came out on December 19, in tandem with the worldwide December release of Wonder Woman 1984.
  • Screwed by the Network: While both WB and the official accounts give the show plenty of promotion, Cartoon Network has not done a good job with promoting it. The show suffered from continually shifting timeslots and, after episode 13, only aired when there was a new episode, with nary a rerun in sight outside of Boomerang on the weekends. Not helping is that some episodes premiered in other countries months before the US and the second season has yet to air. This is in stark contrast to how fellow DC series Teen Titans Go! gets treated on Cartoon Network which airs reruns daily and has advertisements for new episodes nearly every (if not just every) commercial break.
  • Short Run in Peru:
    • "#LeagueOfShadows" aired in UK and Turkey and "#AwesomeAuntAntiope" aired in Italy before their U.S. broadcasts.
    • Several of the Super Shorts were uploaded to Cartoon Network UK's YouTube account ahead of their official premiere on the US DCSHG account; these shorts were not geo-fenced.
    • "Fresh Princess Of Ren Faire" aired in places like Australia and New Zealand in October 2020 before airing in the US on December 27.
  • Talking to Himself:
    • "Let Them Eat Pie" has Grey DeLisle Griffin voicing her 3 main characters of the series: Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, and Giganta.
    • Tara Strong voices both halves of the Barbara Gordon/Harleen Quinzel best friend duo.
    • Keith Ferguson voices Robin, Batman, and Alfred.
  • What Could Have Been:
