Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Batman: The Animated Series (or Batman: TAS), which originally aired on the Fox Kids block from 1992 to 1995, is one of the most popular and groundbreaking series in Western Animation. Towards the end, it was given a minor Retool into The Adventures of Batman & Robin, which promoted the latter hero from recurring role to regular star. A more noticeable retool occurred in 1997, where a Channel Hop and an uncancellation order led to The WB's The New Batman Adventures (also known as Batman: Gotham Knights). This retool streamlined the character designs to better match those of Superman: The Animated Series, allowing for the inevitable Bat Family Crossovers.As the title suggests, the series is an animated adaptation of the adventures of the popular comic book character Batman. It drew heavily from the Denny O'Neil/Neal Adams era in the 70s and the live-action films directed by Tim Burton (although some of the latter's baggage, such as the mutated version of the Penguin, caused them some problems). The often-minimalist look of the show was largely influenced by the 1940s Superman Theatrical Cartoons, with character designs resembling those of Jack Kirby, Chester Gould, and Alex Toth. The resulting product, revolutionary for its time, was dubbed "dark deco"; it was also the result of co-producer Eric Radomski's standing order to the animators that all backgrounds be drawn with light colors on black paper (instead of dark colors on white paper, as is the industry standard) to ensure that the artwork stayed as dark as possible. Head producer Bruce Timm — who also took on other roles — carried his design style over into other shows, thus making Batman: The Animated Series the first entry in the fully-realized canon known as the DC Animated Universe.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Batman: TAS 's brief venture into primetimenote It aired Sunday nights against 60 Minutes and got annihilated in the ratings showed off its well-known edgier themes, pushing the limits of what had been acceptable in Western animation (notably, sparse application of The Hit Flash, use of Censor Decoys, and overt use of realistic — if unlikely — guns, rather than dubious stand-ins).Most of the episodes took place entirely in Gotham City, although Batman and Robin occasionally ventured to other cities and even other countries. Besides the familiar villains, this series introduced other characters from the comics, such as Ra's al-Ghul, to the television audience. It even introduced a new character, Harley Quinn, who proved to be so popular that she eventually made her way into the comics. The series also marked the first major exposure of Two-Face outside of the comics, and its revised origin for Mr. Freeze soon became the definitive version of that story.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The new designs in the second series, The New Batman Adventures, notably restored the Penguin to the comics version and emphasized Poison Ivy's plant-like nature. Since The WB's broadcast standards were more relaxed than FOX's, the producers were allowed to use more action and violence than before. The status quo of this show was close to the comics of its time, as Batman was partnered with a younger Robin named Tim Drake, although Tim's origin in the show was taken from the character of Jason Todd, and Dick Grayson was the independent hero Nightwing due to a falling out occurring during the interim between the two series. Batgirl, who only had three appearances in the original series, became a recurring character and Batman's primary assistant.The legacy of Batman: The Animated Series is difficult to overstate. First and foremost, the show had an immediate and gigantic impact on the Batman franchise— arguably greater than the Tim Burton films— that persists to this day. The series codified the definitive portrayals of its cast of characters in the minds of fans and the general public to an extent previously achieved only by the 1966 live-action series, most notably with Mr. Freeze's heavy change in backstory and characterization being so acclaimed and iconic that it was repurposed for all later versions of the character. Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill's portrayals of Batman and the Joker set a precedent that other takes continue to respond to to this day, and series-original character Harley Quinn skyrocketed in popularity to the point of being just as iconic as many of Batman's older rogues gallery members. The visual direction and writing style of the show established the idea that Batman can be dark on TV as well as on the big screen (the Batman franchise having long sat in the shadow of the 1966 show's satirically campy and farcical approach), to the point where "red/dark-skied and cloudy" is still the default look for Gotham, and even the character designs would become the default from which later depictions would build off of.In a broader perspective, Batman: The Animated Series broke the superhero genre quite thoroughly out of the Animation Age Ghetto, establishing that a cartoon staring costumed vigilantes could be dark and dramatic while still being appealing to younger audiences— in fact, much of the censorship the show faced aided how it tackled these mature subjects, using implication quite adeptly to discuss topics in ways that explicit and/or gratuitous showcasing would've failed to achieve. Within its lifetime, it won four Emmy Awards, including the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program, and to this day, it is widely considered one of the greatest animated television shows ever made.Three movies based on the series were produced: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (which had a limited theatrical run), Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub-Zero (a pseudo-tie-in to the live action movie Batman & Robin), Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman (created and set after the end of the series).The series also had an official tie-in comic, The Batman Adventures, which also received critical and financial success (most notably, the Eisner-Award-winning Mad Love, which detailed Harley Quinn's origin and was later adapted as an episode of the TV series). Harley & Ivy was another tie-in miniseries released in 2004 and based around Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy. Then there is also the one-shot Batgirl Adventures from 1997, featuring Batgirl, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy, in the style of The New Batman Adventures.Four completely different Licensed Games based on the series were released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, and Game Gear, all titled The Adventures of Batman and Robin. Also, while it's not officially part of the DC Animated Universe, the 2009 video game Batman: Arkham Asylum is (in some ways) considered a Darker and Edgier spiritual successor; Paul Dini returned to write the script, while Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill, and Arleen Sorkin (Harley Quinn) reprised their characters from the original series. The game was so popular it led to two sequels and a prequel, respectively Batman: Arkham City, Batman: Arkham Knight and Batman: Arkham Origins.This show now has a rough episode guide (help is needed) and a Best Episode Crowner.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: A non-comedic example — the Joker and Harley's Mad Love relationship was possibly the most spot-on example of Domestic Abuse portrayed in animation, particularly with the trope-naming episode "Mad Love" (where Harley is pushed out a window). She swears him off entirely by the end of it...until she sees that he left her a single flower and a "get-well-soon" note and practically swoons in her body cast. Practically every thing Roxy says in "The Ultimate Thrill", even going so far as to say she was the best (chase) that Batman had ever had. She spends most of the episode riding around on a human-sized rocket.

Gratuitous Laboratory Flasks
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_16d14f03
comment
Gratuitous Laboratory Flasks: In "On Leather Wings," when Batman confronts Dr. Kirk Langstrom, there's a long table covered in lab glassware, in particular two huge globes of purple liquid that connect to one another and nothing else, seemingly serving no purpose. Langstrom uses nothing on the table, instead taking the formula he uses to become ManBat out of his Lab Coat Of Science And Medicine. When he transforms, he of course smashes everything on the table, then picks up the table itself and throws it at Batman for good measure. An ever more complicated-looking array of flasks, test tubes and beakers connected by spiraling glass tubes is seen in "Terror in the Sky." Oddly, all the liquid in them is green (perhaps the colorists were lazy). Once again, Langstrom doesn't do anything with them, but at least this time, they don't get smashed. Vertigo's laboratory in "Off Balance" isn't quite as elaborately equipped, but its shiny glass apparatuses are even more completely incidental to the plot.

The Movie: There were several DTV films, but general consensus agrees that the theatrical film Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the best. Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub-Zero is seen as what Batman & Robin should have been, and the less well regarded Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman is a competent production.

Soft Water
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_1c2b6ac8
comment
Soft Water: Used frequently throughout the show, including a scene in "Zatanna" where a pair of mooks fell out of a plane flying above the clouds and survived the impact with the ocean below. An aversion is the episode "Off Balance." In two separate occasions someone falls from a high place into water; the first time the person resurfaces but does not make any movement or sound and disappears under the waves again. The second time the person's fate is not made clear, but it is implied in Batman and Talia's subsequent dialogue that he died. Averted in "On Leather Wings." The Man-Bat throws a security guard out of a window who lands in some sort of canal. Cut to a picture of the next day's newspaper with a picture of guard recovering in the ICU, where he is alive but severely injured from the fall.

The Stoic: The persona that Batman cultivates for himself (although, see Not So Stoic, above). There are some contenders among the villains, but only one winner: Mr. Freeze invokes this trope, claiming his feelings were frozen inside him, but it's clear he's actually a Tin Man. Arnold Wesker, the Ventriloquist, truly is one, but only when Scarface is talking. When something happens to Scarface, Arnold can emote like any other. The winner would be the Clock King: After his Start of Darkness, he only shows cold detachment, and his only emotion is annoyance.

Papa Wolf: Batman's one principle is to never take a life, but if you dare to enslave innocent children to steal for you like The Sewer King did, you better damn well pray that he does hold onto it. "Over the Edge" shows just how far Jim Gordon will go for his daughter. Or rather, what she fears he will do. "Harley's Holiday" has General Vreeland. When his daughter Veronica gets accidentally kidnapped by Harley, his solution is pursue them in a tank.

Ironic Echo: From the episode "Baby Doll." Baby's catch-phrase on the show (after causing some mayhem) was "I didn't mean to!" a la Bart's "I didn't do it." At the end, she's hugging Batman's leg and crying, saying simply "I didn't mean to..." In the episode "Mad As a Hatter," Tetch asks Alice if she remembers the Mock Turtle's song, reciting "Will you, won't you, will you, won't you... won't you join the dance?" before dancing with her in the park. Later, as she is hugging her fiancé Billy, while the Hatter lies trapped in the claws of a Jabberwock, he moans softly, "Would not... could not, would not, could not... oh, could not join the dance" as the camera pans out to a statue of a crying Mock Turtle. In "Two-Face, Part 2", Grace tries to talk Harvey out of his persona. After Thorne reveals she led him to Two-Face, under the pretense of a police chase, Harvey walks away from her. When he's about to kill Thorne: Interestingly, this one is two episodes apart: In "Appointment in Crime Alley": "Cat Scratch Fever":

Anachronism Stew: Intentionally invoked by the creators to make when the series takes place ambiguous. For instance, the clothing and cars are from the 1940s. The weapons are 1930-70-ish. The uniforms are from the 1960s. TVs are in black and white. SWAT teams and Liebherr-style cranes exist already. The helicopters are from the 1980s. The social status of women and minorities is modern. The list goes on, too...This became a Downplayed Trope in The New Batman Adventures, however to match up with the more modern styles of the rest of the DCAU.

Mythology Gag
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_26ac510e
comment
Mythology Gag: In a flashback during part 1 of "Robin's Reckoning", one circus performer refers to Dick Grayson as a boy wonder. In multiple episodes, the Joker's alias from before his transformation is given as "Jack Napier," which was his real name in the first Tim Burton movie. In the Scarecrow's first appearance, Batman checked a list of places where the villain could have acquired the chemicals used for his crimes. Star Labs was in the list. The girl in "Legends of the Dark Knight" is modeled on Carrie Kelley, the Robin from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, and she retells a section of that series. The fourth child in "Legend's of the Dark Knight" is an effeminate boy named Joel standing under a sign that says "Shoemaker", who talks about how Batman wears rubber armor and has a car that can drive up walls. The other kids dismiss his theories, and him, out of hand. In one episode, the Joker gets his own car◊ with his face plastered◊ all over it.◊ In "Bane", Killer Croc wears a hat and trenchcoat, like in his pre-Crisis debut. In "The Cape and Cowl Conspiracy", Woodwood said that Batman "is only human after all", which is what one of the Joker's henchmen said in the Tim Burton film. In "Deep Freeze”, Sanderson the robot maker has a flying robot of Bat-Mite, who even says "I just want to help" after he malfunctions. An extremely subtle one: "Double Talk" reveals that the warden of Arkham is named Crichton, the same as the prison warden from Batman. Another subtle one (and possibly just incidental), but Batman's reason for giving Harley Quinn the benefit of the doubt in "Harley's Holiday"? "He'd had a bad day too, once." A pretty grim one: in his debut episode, Tim Drake gets smacked once with a crowbar. In the comics, Jason Todd (whose origin story was embroidered a bit for this Tim) suffered a bad beating from the Joker wielding a crowbar as a prelude to his death.

A policeman chases them off, as this is a crime scene. However just as he shoos them away the kids pelt him with snowballs. In "Almost Got'Im," after Poison Ivy swipes Killer Croc's chair, in the background you can see him throwing another bar patron out of his chair, grabbing it and coming back to the table.

Inverted with Sidney Debris, a.k.a. "Sid the Squid," in "The Man Who Killed Batman." This bumbling wannabe crook, through several bizarre twists of fate, experiences incredible good luck throughout the entire episode, managing to make monkeys of Rupert Thorne, the Joker and (temporarily) Batman and earning widespread praise he doesn't deserve for an incredible feat that, due to a freakish coincidence, he only appears to have performed. Thorne even lampshades the possibility that Sid's "loser" shtick may all be an act.

Revolvers Are Just Better: Most criminals use semi-automatic pistols, but whenever Commissioner Gordon and Detective Harvey Bullock draw their weapons they are traditional revolvers. Justified in that, for many years, most police departments issued .38 Special revolvers (or occasionally, .357 Magnums loaded with .38 Special) as their sidearms - especially in the 1940s-50s era that the series somewhat emulates.

Apathetic Clerk: After being being exposed to Joker's laughing gas and thrown into a vat of chemicals, news anchor Jack Ryder is transformed into The Creeper. One of his first acts is to go to a clothing store in order to make his superhero costume. He manages to scare everyone out of the store, except for a store clerk who watches him as he finds his costume and asks how he'll pay in a monotone voice. Despite her total screen time being less than a minute, fans have named her Thrifty. Given she works in Gotham City, she probably has a high tolerance for weirdness.

The first part of the episode is not a dream but reality, and the rest (after the Catapult Nightmare wake up) is a dream world created by the Mad Hatter.

The Bad Guy Wins: In "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?", Batman and Robin stopped the Riddler from killing Daniel Mockridge, but the Riddler still escaped at the end and for all intents and purposes still won when he destroyed Mockridge's peace of mind and made him live in paranoid fear of the Riddler's return. Fortunately, Mockridge is a bit of a jerk.

Vocal Evolution
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_2ef005ab
comment
Vocal Evolution: Kevin Conroy initially had a growl in his Batman voice and spoke with a higher, upbeat tone as Bruce Wayne. Starting from The New Batman Adventures, his Batman voice got higher and lost the growl and he no longer used the higher voice for Bruce Wayne. He mentions in I Know That Voice that he was fairly new to voice acting when first taking on Batman and he chose the growl not knowing how difficult it would be on his vocal chords, so he had to figure out a way to emulate the same effect without injuring himself. Mark Hamill, in his debut episode as the Joker in "Joker's Favor," had a much more noticeable lisp. Loren Lester's voice for Robin also got lower over time. Possibly to show him aging.

Even Evil Has Standards: Rival crime bosses Rupert Thorne and Arnold Stromwell are locked in a bitter, violent gang war for control of Gotham, but when Stromwell's son goes missing and he accuses Thorne of being behind it, Thorne points out that he never goes after a person's family. Thorne is actually planning to kill Stromwell right then, betraying him at a peace summit, but he is legitimately shocked at the accusation and is completely sincere in his assertion of innocence. In "Almost Got 'Em", The Joker reveals his intent to draw out Batman by having Catwoman ground up into cat food. Poison Ivy, Two-Face, Penguin, and Killer Croc (really Batman in disguise) are visibly disturbed. Done hilariously in "Joker's Millions". Joker is a psychopathic criminal who commits heinous crimes on insane levels, but he won't commit tax fraud.

Create Your Own Villain
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_326a44a1
comment
Create Your Own Villain: It was Rupert Thorne's attempt to blackmail Harvey Dent that lead to Dent's transformation into Two-Face, the transformation itself led to Two-Face's extra-legal war on Thorne's criminal organization. Candace, Thorne's right hand, is well aware of this. Roland Daggett's attempts to control Matt Hagen with his highly addictive facelift-in-a-jar concoction eventually turned the man into Clayface. In "Trial," the Arkham Asylum inmates put Batman on trial, accusing him of creating them. This trial leads to the revelation that even if Batman had not pushed them off the edge, they were all deeply disturbed people and would have entered villainy anyway from their own motivations. In fact, they created him. The villains then come to terms with this and find Batman innocent... and then, because they are such bad guys, they try to kill him anyway. In "Lock-Up," the eponymous villain was formerly a guard at Arkham Asylum who got his position due to endorsement and support from Wayne Enterprises. When he goes insane and begins kidnapping the people he blames for the city's problems (the police, bureaucrats and reporters that he says cause the criminals), Robin snarkily comments "Another fine villain brought to you by the Wayne Foundation." The look Batman shoots him is not happy. An inversion occurs in "Beware the Creeper": A villain (The Joker) creates his own hero (the Creeper). And he even does it referencing the way he claims Batman created him, throwing someone into a chemical vat: Deconstructed with the Clock King, Hill was Just Trying to Help Temple Fugate. In the episode "Over the Edge", the plot is set by Batgirl's fear that this trope will enact if she would be a casualty of the collateral damage from a super - battle: The Commissioner Gordon would become a Knight Templar Parent that will destroy the Bat-family, being created by the death of heroine Batgirl. "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?" features Daniel Mockridge, a Corrupt Corporate Executive who had Edward Nygma as an intern, and created the company's best-selling video game. To prevent Nygma from getting his share of the profitsand suing for royalties, he showed him the door. Cue the Riddler two years later.

Out of Focus: Dick Grayson was originally a Recurring Character, but after the first Retool, he earned Regular Character status. The second Re Tool, however, made Batgirl a regular as well and added Tim Drake, so Grayson as Nightwing was seen far less often. Regardless, he was still considered a regular character and treated as such by production. (Voice actor Loren Lester was consistently credited in the main cast, as opposed to with - say - recurring guest star Mark Hamill). Word of God flat-out admitted this trope as a blunder on their part.

Adapted Out: Crime bosses Carmine Falcone and Sal Maroni are nowhere to be seen, with Falcone's role as Gotham City's most powerful crime boss and Maroni's role in Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face going to Rupert Thorne.note Unsurprising, as the show's creative team grew up on comics from the '70s/early '80s, where Thorne was Gotham's prime mover-and-shaker. Bruce Timm, for one, has openly admitted he never read Batman: Year One (published in 1987) until he began working on the animated adaptation in 2010. Jason Todd, the second Robin, was completely skipped over. Though some argue that their version of Tim Drake is more a Composite Character of Tim and Jason, both in origin and personality.

Ra's al Ghul. Despite being insufferably pompous, self-righteous, megalomaniacal, and a genocidal lunatic, he is a brave man, exposing himself to danger even though most of the time he is a frail old man; he refuses to see himself as a victim, and will not tolerate anyone else thinking that, either. When rejuvenated by a chemical pool called the Lazarus Pit, he becomes strong and athletic and is willing to fight anyone. When he challenges Batman to a sword fight in "The Demon's Quest (Part II)" he demands: "Are you man enough to face your better?" — and is immensely pleased that Batman is just that.

Batman Gambit: From the Trope Namer himself in "Lock-Up". When a trial for allegations of abuse to the inmates of Arkham Asylum by new head of security Lyle Bolton, none of the inmates brought in (Harley, Scarecrow, and The Ventriloquist/Scarface) seem to want to testify. Batman, who's attending as Bruce Wayne due to him appointing Bolton to the job in the first place, says that they should keep Bolton in charge for another year and a half. This leads to all of the inmates present to plead for him not to and exposes Bolton's crimes. Also in “Mad Love” Batman counts on the Jokers “The Only One Allowed to Defeat You” mentality to save him froma death trap created by Harley Quinn. Not just limited to Batman himself either. In the episode “Joker's Favor" Charlie, who had been blackmailed by the Joker, used the villains own methods and mindset against him, faking a psychotic break and threatening to take them both out with a (fake) bomb therby robbing the Joker of his final “blaze of glory” moment with Batman. Batman even gives an approving chuckle after the plan works.

Actor Allusion
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_392372f9
comment
Actor Allusion: In The New Batman Adventures episode "Mad Love", The Joker, voiced by Mark Hamill, quips "May the floss be with you!". Hamill also happens to be married to a dental hygienist, saying he's heard that joke a number of times. The Penguin is voiced by Paul Williams, who also notably played a cruel, cunning, narcissistic gentleman and criminal mastermind obsessed with birds in the film Phantom of the Paradise by Brian De Palma. Grant Walker, a character played by Daniel O'Herlihy, has decided that things are too rough and wants to implement a new city to replace an old society, but is willing to destroy the old one first? Walker's a bit more extreme, but we've seen this before. In his introduction in "Heart of Ice", Mr. Freeze says "Revenge is a dish best served cold," popularly called a Klingon proverb. Michael Ansara, who plays Freeze, played the Klingon Captain Kang in Star Trek. This was the second time the late Roddy McDowell played a Batman villain with an obsession over classical literature, except whereas the Bookworm was more of a jack of all trades with his literary references, the Mad Hatter specifically focuses on the works of Lewis Carroll. In a "What Could Have Been" example, had Tim Curry been cast as the Joker as the production team had originally planned this would have been the result, as Curry had only a few years previous famously played another famous Monster Clown.

Character Development
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_3b113b7
comment
Character Development: Over the course of the series Robin grows continuously more frustrated with Batman's domination of their partnership and cold, emotionless personality. It comes to a head during the revamp into The New Batman Adventures, where he abandons the Robin persona and strikes out on his own as Nightwing. Barbara Gordon initially appears as the normal daughter of Commissioner Gordon, but she gets dragged into a plot for world domination and, at the end of the episode, mentioned that she liked the experience. She later masquerades as Batman when she feels that he needs to be seen at a public event. She then begins to fight crime on her own as Batgirl, eventually becoming an official member of the Bat-family and replacing Robin when he ends his partnership with Batman. Batman himself starts out as anti-heroic yet optimistic, and is friendly towards his allies, but he grows more cold, pragmatic, and cynical throughout the entire DC Animated Universe. His relentless dedication to fighting crime at the cost of his own happiness, as well as his increasingly standoffish personality alienates many of his friends and love interests, which leads to him becoming the bitter, old recluse seen in Batman Beyond.

Something Completely Different: "I've Got Batman in My Basement," a "lighter" episode in which Batman is actually out of commission for most of the adventure (after suffering a poison gas attack) and a group of suburban kids are forced to protect him. "Showdown", though it features Ra's al Ghul, is ultimately a story about Jonah Hex and his quest to arrest Arkady Duvall, who is the son of Ra's al Ghul.

Schizo Tech: The Weapon of Choice for the criminal is the tommy gun, TV is largely in black and white and the cars look like they come from the 1920s or 1930s, but this same setting gives us highly sophisticated computer equipment, sentient Artificial Intelligence, machines that can read peoples' minds and CCTV security cameras... and that is not even counting the stuff Batman himself has.

Mr. Alt Disney: Grant Walker. A pioneer on animatronics and amusement parks owner, his design of an underwater utopia with no crime is loosely based on the original concept for Epcot Center. He also wants to be frozen like Mr. Freeze, a clear gag on the urban legend that Walt Disney is in cryogenic storage.

Adaptational Heroism: In the comics, Hamilton Hill was a Corrupt Politician who was in the pocket of Rupert Thorne. While initially against Batman here, this version of Hill is a good and honest person. The same goes for Harvey Bullock, who initially started a Dirty Cop and a pawn of Hill before making a Heel–Face Turn, is an honest cop from day one here. However, as with even post-Heel–Face Turn comics, Bullock is still prone to roughing up suspects. Bullock in this series is also usually antagonistic towards Batman for professional reasons, not because he's corrupt.

Hello, Attorney!: Janet Van Dorn, at least in "Trial." In "Shadow of the Bat, part 1," Van Dorn looked more like a frigid, 40-something old maid. But "Trial" was a Paul Dini episode, so Van Dorn gets a Hello Makeover. Harley passes herself off as one - even giving her name as Harleen Quinzel, demonstrating that Bullock never bothers to read files on supervillains apparently - to bail out Sid the Squid. She even makes a risque joke at Bullock's expense when he wonders if he's seen her before.

Story Arc
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_42008602
comment
Story Arc: Despite its highly episodic nature, the first two seasons chronicle the fall of traditional crime and the rise of supervillains in Gotham City. When the series begins, the Joker and the Penguin are the only active supervillains (almost every other supervillain we see it's Start of Darkness, and Ra's Al Ghul only comes to Gotham to meet the Batman). Corrupt Corporate Executive Roland Dagget and traditional gangsters Rupert Thorne and Arnold Stromwell run the city. Over the course of the series, Dagget gradually loses his fortune as legal fees and criminal charges catch up to him, and Thorne and Stromwell have their operations systematically taken apart as new, colorful villains appear in the scene. This comes to a head for Dagget in "Batgirl Returns" where he's finally arrested, "It's Never Too Late" sees Stromwell have a change of heart and turn himself in, and Thorne himself gets arrested in "Shadow of the Bat" after another of his criminal operations is busted and it's revealed that Two-Face has been taking control of Gotham mobs behind the scenes. By the time of The New Batman Adventures, almost all criminal activities are provided by costumed and themed supervillains. The story arc in TNBA is gentrification, with Penguin "going legit" as the owner of the Bad-Guy Bar, the Iceberg Lounge, Joker and Harley Quinn face so many setbacks and are so badly hit by Batman, that Joker is literally being made to run out of town and go to Metropolis for the "World's Finest" arc and likewise goes nuts when he becomes a millionaire ("Joker's Millions"). As per Batman Beyond, a short while later, Arkham Asylum would be shut down and the inmates would be moved to a new facility and by the time of Batman Beyond, most of the classic era of Batman's Rogues Gallery is almost entirely forgotten (referred to by Terry McGinnis as "the bad old cape and cowl days", with the poor part of Gotham becoming an abandoned section called "Old Gotham" that is overshadowed and left to disrepair by the more futuristic and middle-class Neo-Gotham of the future.

White Gang-Bangers: Nearly all of the regular criminals and gangsters seen in Gotham are white. Justified by the '50s aesthetics and general Retro Universe nature of the setting, which would be ruined by too prominent representation by ethnic criminals. However, both of the major mob bosses (Arnold Stromwell and Rupert Thorne) have Anglo-Saxon names, which would be a little weird even in a Roaring Twenties/Great Depression-era storyline. Mask of the Phantasm adds mobsters with Italian and Jewish names like Sal Valestra and Chuckie Sol.

Adult Fear: "See No Evil" is, essentially, the story of a woman dealing with her ex-con ex-husband who keeps breaking into her house and eventually kidnaps her daughter. In "The Underdwellers", Batman is logically angry when the child picks up and plays with a decorative gun on the wall of Wayne Manor, since it could have been loaded. There is also the matter of children being abused, enslaved, and demonstrably tortured. As punishment for talking, a child who has been living underground in the dark is shoved into a brightly-lit room and kept there for several hours. "Be a Clown": The Joker gets involved in kidnapping and child endangerment.

Butt-Monkey: Harvey Bullock for the good guys, as his stubbornness, bad temper, and overall loutishness make him act quite foolish most of the time. Another good guy example is Mayor Hill, but you can say that you're invoking it if you chose to run for Mayor of a Wretched Hive like Gotham City. Harley Quinn is a (relatively) rare female example. Not only does her general incompetence make her look pretty stupid (at least in the early episodes), the verbal and, yes, physical abuse she takes from the Joker is Played for Laughs much of the time... unless it's being Played for Drama. "Almost Got 'Im" has an unusual one-episode example for Killer Croc. Throughout the episode he acts even stupider than normal, and is constantly treated with condescension by the other villain characters (especially the Joker) every time he says something buffoonish. But Croc eventually has the last laugh when, after hearing the Joker brag about capturing Catwoman and planning to have her ground up into cat food, he reveals himself to be Batman in disguise, knocks the Clown Prince on his ass, and has the other villains arrested after revealing that all the other patrons in the nightclub are undercover cops, remarking as he leaves that "I'm not bad with traps myself." Inverted with Sidney Debris, a.k.a. "Sid the Squid," in "The Man Who Killed Batman." This bumbling wannabe crook, through several bizarre twists of fate, experiences incredible good luck throughout the entire episode, managing to make monkeys of Rupert Thorne, the Joker and (temporarily) Batman and earning widespread praise he doesn't deserve for an incredible feat that, due to a freakish coincidence, he only appears to have performed. Thorne even lampshades the possibility that Sid's "loser" shtick may all be an act.

He, in turn, drives her completely mad. (The psychiatric term for this is "folie à deux" - French for "madness for two." Apropos.) After months (years?) as his assistant, moll and emotional punching bag, she slowly drags herself back to sanity and, through a series of innocent misunderstandings, is thrown right back into Arkham after a single day of genuinely trying to reform. Her entire depressing story is encapsulated when the Joker finds out that she captured and was about to kill Batman instead of him: he punches her and throws her out of a third story window. Awful enough — and then the prone, injured Harley whispers: In "Growing Pains," happens to Tim Drake after Clayface absorbs Annie, causing Tim to brutally attack Clayface. Mary Dahl, who only wanted to be taken seriously as an actor despite being trapped in the body of a child.

Early Installment Weirdness
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_4f4372e9
comment
Early Installment Weirdness: Scarecrow's first appearance gave him a really scrawny head and mask that magically widened to normal size when he took his mask off at the end of the episode. Later appearances redesigned his mask to be the same width as his head. For the DCAU as a whole, there's the fact that Gotham seems more like a retro-futuristic version of the 1940s, with people wearing period fashions and hairstyles, rather than the "modern, but fancier" look of later entries. It's implied that Gotham was slowly gentrifying in TNBA, with Joker finding it impossible to stay and operate in Gotham like the old days, and other criminals such as Penguin moving up the crime ladder, and by the time of Batman Beyond, what used to be "Old Gotham" is more or less an abandoned ghost-town that only Bruce Wayne feels should still be invested in (with his middle-class apprentice Terry mocking his sentimental paternalism). Likewise, Batman in the early episodes is not quite the grim, super-serious gruff Deadpan Snarker he would later be in Justice League, he smiles, displays warmth, has an affable Cool Big Bro dynamic with Robin (especially in "Christmas with the Joker"). Indeed, as part of his overall Myth Arc, Batman becomes a much colder, darker, and asocial person, alienating his allies, showing the true cost of his "war on crime".

Unreliable Voiceover: "P.O.V." features three separate flashbacks, each narrated by a member of a sting operation that had gone horribly wrong and each describing their experiences in the lead-up and aftermath of the sting. Officer Wilkes is honest in his story, but misunderstood much of what he saw, so his description of Batman resembles a magical creature instead of a costumed crimefighter. Detective Harvey Bullock is aware of what happened, but is deliberately falsifying his statement to cover his own mistakes and blames it on Batman. Of the three, only Officer Renee Montoya tells an accurate story.

Clayface lent himself to scenes like this. Two most shocking examples were when he absorbed Batman, and we see Batman's silhouette flailing around inside him, and almost not making it out alive, and when he absorbed his "daughter," a creation of his clay that had mutated into its own personality. The episode with the "daughter" is made extra disturbing by the fact that although she has a totally separate and distinct personality she is still a part of Clayface, which allows him to find her no matter where she runs. It also doesn't help that at the end of the episode, Robin observes that Clayface has essentially committed murder in a way that cannot be prosecuted.

Disproportionate Retribution
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_50b05d30
comment
Disproportionate Retribution: The Joker was guilty of this on more or less a regular basis. "The Laughing Fish": The Joker introduces his "smile" toxin into the fish supply of Gotham Harbor, hoping to trademark the red-lipped, grinning ichthyoids and sell them in supermarkets. When told that he cannot trademark fish he retaliates by carrying out an elaborate scheme to murder everyone in the Gotham City patent office until he gets his way. "The Joker's Wild": An entrepreneur opens a casino in Gotham City based on the Joker's likeness and gimmicks. Joker is so incensed that a complete stranger would try to "cash in on my image" that he plots to blow the casino up. Ironically, the entire point of the entrepreneur cashing in on Joker's image was that he wanted Joker to come and trash the place. The entire place was set up for an insurance scam. Too bad for him, once Batman told the Joker what was going on, he decided he would rather kill the guy and run the place himself... "Be a Clown": Mayor Hamilton Hill (who despises Batman) appears on television claiming that Batman and the Joker are equally as bad. Joker finds this comparison so insulting that (disguised as a party clown) he crashes a birthday party held at the mayor's estate for his son, Jordan, and attempts to blow up Jordan's birthday party (along with all the guests) with a stick of dynamite in the cake. "Make 'Em Laugh": Bitter about being disqualified from an annual stand-up comedy competition (Because he hadn't registered as a competitor), the Joker steals some mind-control implants from the Mad Hatter, kidnaps the three comedians who serve as judges in the annual competition, fits them with the implants and warps them into becoming costumed criminals who attempt reckless capers (with one of the brainwashed judges winding up in the hospital after falling off a bridge) and replaces the judges with his own men just so he can win the trophy. Batman puts it well: "Only you would ruin three lives for a silly piece of tin." But the most extreme example had to be that depicted in "Joker's Favor": After rudely cutting off another motorist on the freeway, Joker is yelled at by that motorist and retaliates by forcing the other man off the road and chasing him into the woods, threatening to kill him when he catches him. The man begs for his life, and Joker agrees to spare him if he will perform "a favor" for Joker sometime in the future. The man promptly changes his name and relocates his family to Ohio, but Joker obsessively stalks him and finally tracks him down, forcing him to honor the favor owed to him. Once the man has done this favor (which makes him an unwitting accessory to the attempted assassination of Commissioner Gordon), Joker tries to do him in for good. When the man survives and finally works up the nerve to confront his tormentor, Joker threatens to kill his family. All this because of a minor altercation on the freeway. Inverted in "The Last Laugh," after Batman destroys the Joker's pet robot, Captain Clown (which Joker considers murder, since Captain Clown was his best friend). Joker retaliates by.... dumping a forklift full of smelly garbage right on top of Batman. Alternatively, this may not be an inversion, since trash often contains heavy objects, and given the amount Joker dumps onto Batman, could believably cause serious injury or smother him to death. In "Critters", not only does Farmer Brown take revenge against Gotham for shutting down his projects and forcing him and his daughter to go broke, but for calling his experiments "monsters". Temple Fugate developed an obsessive, murderous grudge against Mayor Hamilton Hill...because when he was a lawyer, Hill suggested Fugate take his coffee break a little later to help him relax for a lawsuit against his company, which resulted in a series of accidents making him late, which resulted in him losing the suit. Fugate reveals that the people who sued his company were represented by Hill's law firm, and thus he believes that Hill was intentionally trying to sabotage him. Thus it's not quite as disproportionate as it sounds initially, but he's still completely off-base and Hill honestly was trying to help. In the episode which introduces Poison Ivy, she tries to kill Harvey Dent for building a corrections facility on top of a field containing a flower that was endangered. There is no evidence he knew about the endangered flower. She saved the flower before trying to kill him, anyway. Maybe he should've done an ecological survey to check for endangered species and done an environmental impact statement before starting construction, but she could've tried telling him there was an endangered flower before he started building to see if he would alter his plans in response. She gets another one when she runs a spa and send out invitations to millionaires who have done some environmental wrong, turning them into living plants with her treatment. She targets Bruce when his company was planning on tearing down a forest for building space...except Bruce had found out and stopped the plans long beforehand and she never bothered to look further into this. What's more when Bruce lets his butler Alfred and Alfred's girlfriend go in his place as a vacation, Ivy figures she'll make due with him cause "someone gotta be punished". Keep in mind, she is, like most of Batman's enemies, a lunatic. And in one hilarious scene in "Fear of Victory", Batman intercepts a telegram believing that it is a fear-toxin laced letter sent by Scarecrow to make the recipient unable to play at his best. It's just an ordinary telegram, and the delivery boy comes to the conclusion that Batman was lying in wait for him because he double-parked.

Power Born of Madness: Harvey Dent appears to have this. In the episode where he finally snaps and transitions into "Big Bad Harv", he is strong enough to lift Rupert Thorne (an obese crime boss) clean off the ground and hurl him into three other thugs. The same episode sees him fling a doctor away with one arm and the next sees him as Two-Face hurl another thug like a sack of potatos. Considering this interpretation of Two-Face seems mostly based on being consumed by rage, maybe it is more "Power Born of Being Really Mad."

Motive Decay: Mr. Freeze in "Cold Comfort". In his earlier appearances, he was committing crimes because he was absolutely determined restore to his ailing wife, who finally recovered after Batman And Mister Freeze Subzero. But by the time of "Cold Comfort", he's become utterly merciless, determined to destroy everything and everyone held dear to the people of Gotham City, after he apparently never got in touch with his wife, who eventually got tired of waiting and remarried. Batman and Batgirl lampshade it, as Batman notes "Nothing about Freeze makes sense anymore". Though they eventually learn that Mr. Freeze's body has almost completely deteriorated except for his head, and it has firmly convinced him he has no hope for a normal life anymore.

Recurring Character
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_56635771
comment
Recurring Character: Although Batman's traditional Rogues Gallery and more famous supporting characters (Robin, Commissioner Gordon, Batgirl, etc) naturally tend to appear regularly, the show also creates or reintroduces several new or more obscure characters who appear regularly to fulfill certain roles. For example, Rupert Thorne acts as the recurring "untouchable crime boss" character, Roland Daggett the "unscrupulous Corrupt Corporate Executive / scientist" type, Veronica Vreeland the ditzy trust-fund heiress and Summer Gleeson the Intrepid Reporter.

Minor Injury Overreaction
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_570f2124
comment
Minor Injury Overreaction: The eponymous "Calendar Girl" views herself as a hideous and deformed person whose dreadful appearance has only been exacerbated by countless rounds of plastic surgery. Beneath her mask, however, she is a beautiful woman whose self-image was destroyed when she was kicked out of the modeling community in favor of younger women.

Time Is Dangerous
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_57650eae
comment
Time Is Dangerous: Clock King uses a time-altering device to trap Batman and Robin in a "bubble" of slowed time, where seconds for them pass as hours on the outside. Batman points out that objects "outside" the bubble are moving relatively at tens of thousands of miles an hour while they are comparatively "standing still". Meaning there will be an enormous (think asteroid impact or nuclear weapon) explosion if anything collides with them in their "frozen" state. Fortunately Batman defuses the trap before it can happen.

Adaptation Distillation
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_5a40d6a
comment
Adaptation Distillation: The episodic nature replicated the feel of the comics, and the various characters were streamlined into their most efficient archetype. Some episodes that were based on stories from Batman comic books went through this as well. "The Laughing Fish" was a streamlined version of a classic story by Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers, but the ending (pitting Batman against a shark) was taken from Denny O'Neil's classic "The Joker's Five-Way Revenge". Harley Quinn also had to be shoehorned into the plot since she didn't exist yet when the comic had been written.

Instant Sedation: Averted in "Sideshow". A tranquilizer dart takes a few minutes to affect Killer Croc at all, and he has plenty of time to stumble about looking for a place to hide before finally passing out. Justified somewhat as a Magic Antidote in "Dreams in Darkness": Dr. Wu tells Batman that he has made an antidote that can eliminate the fear toxin in his body, but with one side effect: instant drowsiness that can render the antidote taker asleep for two days. Batman, however, decides to put the antidote on hold until he can stop Scarecrow and his evil plans of poisoning the water supply.

Kangaroo Court: In "Trial", the villains of Gotham take over Arkham Asylum, where they kidnap Batman to face an obviously one-sided trial (with several villains as the jury, Two-Face as the prosecutor, and JOKER as the judge). Also, Batman's defense attorney is Janet Van Dorn, who was also kidnapped for this and happens to be anti-Batman. They actually DO win the trial, but since they're dealing with psychopathic villains, said villains were going to kill them off anyway.

Alternative Character Interpretation (In-Universe): In "Legends of the Dark Knight", several children discuss what they believe Batman to really be like. The first alluded to story portrays Batman as a giant pterodactyl, the second is a brightly lit homage to the Batman TV series and The Silver Age of Comic Books, the third (never seen) version is a contempt-filled reference to Batman & Robin, and the fourth is an adaptation of a section from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, with Michael Ironside as the man himself.

Prefer Jail to the Protagonist: In "Joker's Favor", the protagonist is an ordinary man who has the misfortune to become the Joker's "hobby". After a whole episode of torment, he seemingly snaps and confronts the Joker, frightening him so much that the Joker calls Batman for help. After his encounter with the Creeper, the Joker surrenders to Batman, declaring the Creeper "a lunatic" without any irony whatsoever.

In "Harley's Holiday", Harley Quinn receives a clean bill of mental health and is thus paroled. Harley declares she is a Reformed Criminal and, thinking her outfit (rather than her pet hyenas) was freaking out passersby, she buys a new outfit but leaves before the security tag can be removed which sets off the alarm, so the clerk sends a security guard to remove the tag. Harley thinks she's being arrested again, panics and sets off a chain of events that cause her to kidnap Veronica Vreeland and subsequently return to crime. At the end, her psychiatrist states she is on a path to recovery.

Heel–Face Turn: Usually when a villain does this it is either temporary or a fake. However, Catwoman's is particularly notable in that happens in her second appearance and she remains genuinely reformed for a majority of the first series until she reverts to thievery in her last two appearances in the original series. The comics based on the series also particularly have the Riddler. Also, Arnold Wesker, when he's finally free from Scarface.

Sanity Slippage

Harley Quinn is the quintessential example. As a psychiatrist working at Arkham Asylum she was a naive and reserved doctor, inexplicably drawn to the Joker and hoping to eventually cure his rampant insanity. He, in turn, drives her completely mad. (The psychiatric term for this is "folie à deux" - French for "madness for two." Apropos.) After months (years?) as his assistant, moll and emotional punching bag, she slowly drags herself back to sanity and, through a series of innocent misunderstandings, is thrown right back into Arkham after a single day of genuinely trying to reform. Her entire depressing story is encapsulated when the Joker finds out that she captured and was about to kill Batman instead of him: he punches her and throws her out of a third story window. Awful enough — and then the prone, injured Harley whispers:

Adventure Rebuff: Batgirl was rebuffed by Batman and Robin a couple times, but she eventually became Batman's partner and stayed even after Robin had left. In Batman Beyond Bruce Wayne refuses to help Terry at first. Once Terry steals the batsuit, Bruce shuts it down remotely, but eventually decides to let him become the next Batman. It is very common for Batman to initially rebuff Barbara Gordon as Batgirl, meaning she has to fight tooth and nail for his respect, at least initially. He might show a similar sentiment to his various Robins as well.

Author Appeal: The Harley/Ivy Les Yay. Even Wikipedia notes it. The Powers That Be also claim Paul Dini had a crush on Zatanna. Since he actually married a real life magician, Misty Lee (who bears a striking resemblance to Zatanna), this only furthers the evidence.

Aluminum Christmas Trees: The plot of the episode "Joker's Millions", where the Joker goes on a crime spree to raise money to avoid going to jail for tax evasion. As absurd as it might sound, the United States actually does have tax laws specifically stipulating that money earned through crime is still subject to income taxes, and there are criminals who have been jailed for failing to pay taxes on their illegally earned money. (This was in fact how Al Capone was eventually busted.)

Batman thinks Ivy may still be up to something when a number of wealthy bachelors succumb to a mysterious toxin, but all his leads come up zilch. Driving back to the Batcave, Robin tells Batman that Prof. Carlyle actually has twin girls. SCREEEEEEECHHHHH!!!!

The very next scene is him being pushed into a jail cell. A less dramatic example:in "Eternal Youth," Bruce offers to let Alfred and his friend Maggey attend a free spa weekend in his place. Alfred insists that it's out of the question. Cut to Alfred sitting in Maggey's car as they drive off to the spa.

Undressing the Unconscious: In "Mad as a Hatter", Mad Hatter kidnaps and hypnotizes his secretary whom he crushes on then dresses her up as the title character of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. In "Baby-Doll", Baby-Doll goes after her old co-stars so they can all "be a family again", and she kidnaps them by knocking them out. After Mariam is knocked out and taken by Baby-Doll, she wakes up at the studio where they had filmed their television program, now wearing her old costume. It's implied Baby-Doll did this with all of her old co-stars.

In the end, Bruce does away with mandatory retirement.

Batman circles around the edges of room, outside the lighter's light, and grabs the villains one by one. The Joker finally says it is okay to panic when he notices Harley suspended from the ceiling and bound with the straight jacket Batman had just escaped from. To make things worse for the villains, Harley was the one who was holding onto Batman's utility belt.

Zeppelins from Another World: As part and parcel of the unique society that the creators developed, the Gotham City Police Department frequently uses blimps to patrol the city and transport personnel. They were included to create an atmosphere evocative of the 1930's, even though the producers admitted that they never really existed at all, not even in the 1930's. An armored example appears in "Showdown." In 1883.

 Batman: The Animated Series / int_6ec4232f
comment
Casting Gag William Sanderson's character is a guy who is heavily involved in robotics, having built some of the most advanced models and also created a bunch of small toy-like robots to keep him company at home. Diana Muldaur also played a snarky doctor a couple years earlier on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Simon Trent's character the Gray Ghost is based on Adam West's role as the campy Batman from the '60s TV series. Also with regards to the '60s TV series, in the final episode, Malachi Thorne, who'd previously appeared in the earlier show as the villain False Face is Cast as a Mask as Two-Face's new "Judge" split-personality, hence Thorne is once again playing a "false face." The Clock King is played by Alan Rachins, then best known for playing the punctilious managing partner Douglas Brachman on L.A. Law — a clock watcher's clock watcher. Sela Ward personally experienced the sort of callousness that serves as Page Monroe's backstory—for example, being passed over for a role as a Bond Girl and being told that "What we really want is Sela, but Sela ten years ago". Alfred is a former MI6 agent. Efrem Zimbalist played FBI Agent Lewis Erskine in The F.B.I.. An obscure one: Arlene Sorkin played Cloudcuckoolander Calliope Jones in the soap opera Days of Our Lives during the '80s. In one episode Calliope had a dream sequence where she was a court jester, and wore a harlequin costume. Paul Dini has confirmed that her performance on Days, especially the dream sequence, was a key inspiration for the character of Harley Quinn. Jeffrey Combs ,who replaced Henry Polic II as the voice of the Scarecrow in The New Batman Adventures, is best-known role for playing another villainous scientist with Lovecraftian connections. Sadly this only lasted for a full episode and an obscure tie-in game.

My Greatest Failure: The death of his parents is the ultimate driving force behind Batman, as it is revealed at several points in the series that he blames himself for not being able to save them. This is compounded by Harvey Dent's transformation into Two-Face, which cost him a personal friend and crime-fighting associate, and which he views in same light as his parents' death. Karl Rossum was distraught over what HARDAC has done, fulfilling the goal to replace humans with robots. Thus preventing accidental human deaths, which is what happened to Karl's wife and daughter. He regretted ever creating HARDAC in the first place.

 Batman: The Animated Series / int_723be11b
comment
Villain Has a Point: When threatening to share Harvey Dent's psychiatric file with the press, Thorne sarcastically quips that the people have a right to know who they're electing for office. Not that Thorne really cares, and he deliberately made the situation worse, but this is actually a pretty valid concern: Would you vote for someone if you found out they've been desperately trying to sweep their violent dissociative identity under the rug? Ferris Boyle in "Heart of Ice". His actions clearly become criminal when he assaults Victor despite Fries having already backed down, and his command to pull the plug on Nora is nothing short of heartless, but his complaint is valid. Victor was using equipment that didn't belong to him, and essentially stealing money not just from Boyle, but from the whole company. The project was completely unauthorized, and that's not even going into the ethics and legal ramifications of using a human subject in a secret experiment. Lyle Bolton is meant to be seen as a hard-headed conservative nutcase with his rant about the inefficient politicians and the "liberal media" being the cause of the superpowered psychos. While "cause" might be a stretch, he's quite right about them being part of the problem. The police routinely fail to combat the maniacs, leaving a vigilante to do 90% of the work, the people running Arkham keep it a barely-functional revolving door, and the politicians for the most part do nothing at all to improve Arkham or Gotham itself. Hell, we even see the news treating Poison Ivy as a media darling instead of a murderous eco-terrorist! If they all did their jobs more efficiently and professionally, maybe there wouldn't be so many costumed freaks terrorizing the city.

Mugging the Monster
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_7276d0de
comment
The Penguin tops the list. In the episode "Birds of a Feather" at least, he is a courageous fighter, beating back a gang of bullies who are trying to mug him using only his umbrella. In another episode, when Batman is accusing him of having Two-Face kidnapped, the Penguin declares that he were ever going to mess with another villain, he'd do it the honorable way: Face to face.

"Rashomon"-Style: The episode “P.O.V.” does this with Harvey Bullock, Officer Renee Montoya, and rookie Officer Wilkes explaining a failed sting operation. The events shown on screen play out the way they actually happened, even though this does not match the descriptions the police give their superiors. Bullock knows what happened, but makes himself appear as the competent hero while Batman screwed up. Wilkes is honest in his belief, but makes Batman come off as a supernatural being. Montoya more or less tells the truth, and believes that Batman died in the fire.

"What Do They Fear?"

Add in the much scarier redesign of the Scarecrow for the last season and it is truly horrifying.

He grabs a blunderbuss off the wall and proceeds to wave it around like a toy. Alfred immediately backs off, but Batman jumps in and grabs the gun out of the boy's hands. Batman notes, "It's not loaded, but it could have been."

Adaptational Nice Guy: Several villains whose comics incarnations were essentially doing things For the Evulz gained sympathetic motives or personalities. The Mad Hatter originally had no backstory in the comics, but was introduced in the series as a victim of Love Makes You Evil; minor gimmick crook Mister Freeze's reimagining as an Anti-Villain was so successful it was later imported into the comics, albeit with Darker and Edgier elements. The Crime Doctor was introduced in Detective Comics #77 as an outright villainous character. The Batman: TAS episode of the same name turns the character into a sympathetic figure through portraying him as a good-intentioned doctor who helped his brother (crime boss Rupert Thorne) in the hopes that the latter would use his influence to restore his medical license.

An ex-security guard for Arkham becomes Lock-up. He... well locks up who he thinks is the real source of the problems in Gotham, the lax Police Force (Gordon), the pushover Doctors (Dr. Bartholomew), mindless Bureaucrats (Mayor Hill), and the media (Summer Gleeson) that "glorifies" the Bat-villains. Ironically, he is probably right.

Where the Hell Is Springfield?
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_8504b817
comment
Where the Hell Is Springfield?: Like any other Batman series, it's not clear where Gotham actually is. "The Mechanic" features a clear shot of a Gotham license plate... with the motto "The Dark Deco State". Averted in "Joker's Favor": A Freeze-Frame Bonus of Charlie Collin's driver license reads: Charlie Collins, Woodrust Drive, Gotham States, N. Y. Clues given by other episodes are all over the place though. For example, in Catwoman's debut episodes, a mountain lion habitat is a plot point, which would place Gotham more toward the south. Another episode has Batgirl fighting a crooked cop on a speedboat passing by what is obviously supposed to be the Statue of Liberty. It doesn't help that Gotham is an Expy of New York City, Chicago, and Detroit.

Anachronic Order: You can't really win here. There are arguments over whether the production order or broadcast order is better. Batman & Mr. Freeze: Sub-Zero was released during the first season of The New Batman Adventures but takes place before the Time Skip between the two versions of the show. Clayface and Tim Drake appear in The New Batman Adventures series premiere "Holiday Knights" despite Tim Drake's origin episode being "Sins of the Father" and Clayface not reconstituting until "Growing Pains".

Out-of-Character Moment: When Harley captures Batman, hanging him upside down over a tank of piranhas, she lavishes at how the Joker will be pleased with her for capturing his greatest enemy. Next thing she knows, Batman was LAUGHING. Not just laughing, but laughing HARD. Harley notes that Batman NEVER laughs, and that it creeped her out. Batman stops and stoicly tells her why he's laughing and proceeds to reveal the truth about Joker to her (See "Is That What He Told You?" above).

Insane No More: In "Harley's Holiday", Harley Quinn receives a clean bill of mental health and is thus paroled. Harley declares she is a Reformed Criminal and, thinking her outfit (rather than her pet hyenas) was freaking out passersby, she buys a new outfit but leaves before the security tag can be removed which sets off the alarm, so the clerk sends a security guard to remove the tag. Harley thinks she's being arrested again, panics and sets off a chain of events that cause her to kidnap Veronica Vreeland and subsequently return to crime. At the end, her psychiatrist states she is on a path to recovery. In her backstory episode "Mad Love", Dr. Harleen Quinzel diagnoses The Joker as Obfuscating Insanity. Though she believes his stories, falls in love with him and becomes his girlfriend/henchwoman, it's implied she's right. In "Sideshow", Killer Croc was reclassified as sane and thus guilty of his crimes, so that he could be sentenced to a term in Levitz Prison instead of Arkham Asylum. However, he soon escapes from the train that was supposed to take him there.

After the coffin disappears into the acid, Joker waits a beat and asks, "Well, that was fun, who's for Chinese?"

Villainous Breakdown
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_957e5fc2
comment
Villainous Breakdown: When Charlie, the timid accountant that the Joker has been tormenting for the entire episode, decides to stand up he grabs a bomb out of the Joker's vehicle and threatens to kill him. When he points out that this is how the Joker will die, killed by some schlub instead of some grand battle with Batman, Joker begins to actually scream for Batman to help him. Two-Face, Mary Dahl and Clayface (in his case, also a Superpower Meltdown) all undergo a nasty snap at some point. Riddler has one just because Batman will not tell him how he survived a seemingly perfect deathtrap. Ivy has several in her first appearance. The first is what led to her trying to kill Harvey Dent and the second was when her greenhouse burned down, just driving her deeper into madness. Bane has a terrifying one after Batman breaks the control for his Venom tube, causing him to overdose. This causes his eyes to bulge out of his head, his muscles to swell to absurd proportions, and him to begin screaming in pain.

Falling Chandelier of Doom

comment
Falling Chandelier of Doom: In "Two-Face," stray machine-gun fire during the show-down between Two-Face and mob boss Rupert Thorne severs the rope of a chandelier and it falls on Thorne. Sadly, it is quite a small chandelier and he survives. In "Harlequinade," Harley swings atop a chandelier with a significant suspension cord, severs it, and sends it crashing onto baddies with an accuracy worthy of the Batman himself. Naturally, this was also a non-lethal chandelier crash. Batman himself uses this tactic on no fewer than five separate occasions; victims include the Penguin, Two-Face, and the Mad Hatter.

Inverted in "The Last Laugh," after Batman destroys the Joker's pet robot, Captain Clown (which Joker considers murder, since Captain Clown was his best friend). Joker retaliates by.... dumping a forklift full of smelly garbage right on top of Batman. Alternatively, this may not be an inversion, since trash often contains heavy objects, and given the amount Joker dumps onto Batman, could believably cause serious injury or smother him to death.

Heroic Bystander: When the Mad Hatter sends his People Puppets after Batman to keep him from rescuing Alice, Batman is initially overwhelmed until he manages to disable the mind control device on one of them. The man he frees is Alice's boyfriend Billy, who returns the favor by removing the rest of the Hatter's devices.

Family-Unfriendly Death
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_9afa05c7
comment
Family-Unfriendly Death: Though many episodes are dark in tone, few can compete with the episode where the Joker manages to infect all of Gotham City with his Joker poison on April Fool's Day, rendering all residents of Gotham City into laughing fits with huge, grotesque smiles as they slowly die. Clayface lent himself to scenes like this. Two most shocking examples were when he absorbed Batman, and we see Batman's silhouette flailing around inside him, and almost not making it out alive, and when he absorbed his "daughter," a creation of his clay that had mutated into its own personality. The episode with the "daughter" is made extra disturbing by the fact that although she has a totally separate and distinct personality she is still a part of Clayface, which allows him to find her no matter where she runs. It also doesn't help that at the end of the episode, Robin observes that Clayface has essentially committed murder in a way that cannot be prosecuted. So the Ventriloquist has a split criminal personality manifested as a Demonic Dummy, Scarface. Scarface technically isn't alive, so he would get butchered in various methods, onscreen. He's been shot up by machine guns (twice) and shredded repeatedly.

The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: There are some eps that has Joker showcasing this trope: In "The Man Who Killed Batman", Joker is really pissed at Sidney Debris because Sid killed Batman instead of him. (Batman got better). Inverted in "Joker's Favor", when Joker gets a Villainous Breakdown being confronted with the mere idea of being killed by any other than Batman. "Mad Love", especially when even Harley is not exempt from this.

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_9c45b5a2
comment
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Ruthlessly exploited. On the commentary for "Heart of Steel, Part 2", the producers explained that the censors and Bureau of Standards and Practices would not object when they harmed or destroyed robots, so not only did they use them as foes to be destroyed, but made their destruction as violent as possible. It is discussed in "His Silicon Soul": When a robotic Batman (mistakenly) believes that he has killed the real Batman, he becomes so horrified that he commits suicide. Batman later reflects on this, and wonders if the robot could have had a soul. Similarly, Scarface could be subjected to all sorts of horrific "deaths", after which the character could be brought back by simply having the Ventriloquist show up with a new dummy. As seen in "Critters" and "Never Fear", Batman's Thou Shalt Not Kill policy doesn't necessarily extend to animals.

Foreshadowing: Our first ever glimpse of DA Harvey Dent in "On Leather Wings" is him sitting in a chair repeatedly flipping a coin. In "Pretty Poison," Bruce, Harvey Dent, and Pamela Isley are having dinner together. We see them laughing at some anecdote, while Bruce says, "You should have seen Harvey's face!" In "Two-Face" Pt. 1, during Harvey Dent's hypnotherapy session there is a brief lightning flash; during the flash a split-second shot of the left side of Dent's face is hideously scarred. Early on in "Harlequinade", when the mayor is on the phone, one can see that his sleeve is purple... In "Zatanna," the eponymous magician offers young Bruce Wayne a spread of cards and asks him to pick one, offering to predict his future. She guesses the two of hearts, hoping for romance, but the card he pulled was The Joker. From the cutscenes of the Sega CD game, which plays like an episode of the series(they were animated by the same studio), we have Poison Ivy's plant monster that looks like Clayface, and when Rupert Thorne smashes the boat's console in anger his hands do not bleed despite breaking glass with his bare hands. Those are easily overlooked until Thorne reveals he was actually Clayface the entire time, behind the other villains. The second Man-Bat's pink pants foreshadow the fact that it's actually female.

Made of Iron: The WB network's relative leniency regarding violence led to much more over-the-top action sequences in which the characters take impossible amounts of punishment. Even before that, though: in "The Man Who Killed Batman" a guy was punched across the room and hit his head on the front of a desk. The desk did not even have a dent and the guy did not even have a concussion. Similar examples, such as Batman surviving a cascade of platinum bars, abound.

Continuity Nod: "Almost Got 'Im" has a bit where Killer Croc claims to have hurled a rock at Batman - this happened in the episode "Sideshow" (which was made and aired after "Almost Got 'Im"); later on in "Trial", assorted Arkham inmates are baying for Batman's blood while Killer Croc suggests they "Hit'im with a rock!" In "Almost Got 'Im", Two-Face is very aggrieved with Poison Ivy, who claims "we used to date"; in "Trial" she makes a reference to trying to kill Harvey Dent. Both are references to "Pretty Poison", Ivy's debut episode. In "House & Garden," as Poison Ivy flees at the end of the episode she looks over a photo album of her time in Gotham. Included in this album is a picture of Bruce Wayne & Harvey Dent (A reproduction of their groundbreaking at Stonegate Penitentiary in "Pretty Poison") and a picture of Ivy and Harley Quinn (A reproduction of their team-up in "Harley & Ivy"). In "Joker's Millions," the actor impersonating the Joker gives himself away when Bruce Wayne references the last time they met, stumping him on the specific events and when they happened. Namely, that the Joker threw Bruce off a rooftop only last month. This happened when they both guest-starred in the three-part Superman: The Animated Series episode "World's Finest," the first Crossover between the two series and the first confirmation of their Shared Universe. "Joker's Millions" itself is a sequel to that episode, as it first established that the Joker was short on money, which serves as the foundation for the story in this episode. In "Harley's Holiday," Boxey points out that the last time Harley Quinn showed up at his door she not only destroyed his club, but brought Batman down on him as well. This occurred in "Harlequinade," where Harley was helping Batman find the Joker. When the Clock King reappears in "Time Out of Joint," Batman deduces that he is moving very fast and that they are not up against another invisible man. They last faced an invisible foe in "See No Evil," where a man had stolen an invisibility suit and used it to commit robberies and kidnap his daughter from his ex-wife. In "Mad Love" the Joker remembers his plan to feed Batman to smiling piranhas, which he had to scrap as he couldn't get them to smile, noting that they were even immune to his scheme from "The Laughing Fish."

Leitmotif

Leitmotif: Most of the villains have their own theme tune and many of the heroes as well including Batman, Robin and Batgirl. At one point, the Joker actually whistles his own leitmotif. Everyman Charlie Collins, protagonist of the episode "Joker's Favor", had a very upbeat, grating leitmotif consisting of unusually cheery whistling and trombones blowing in a manner reminiscent of Leave It to Beaver-esque, 1950's family sitcom background music. It becomes unexpectedly epic when it plays as he triumphantly walks away from staring down The Joker and wondering what his wife is cooking for dinner.

Cut Lex Luthor a Check
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_9fbf8969
comment
Cut Lex Luthor a Check: In "Fear of Victory" the Scarecrow begins rigging sports and then betting on the games; he himself points out that chemicals are expensive and his usual crimes of causing wanton terror are not very lucrative. In "Riddler's Reform," Riddler has sold the license to his persona to a toy developer for a completely legal fortune. However, Batman is convinced that he will continue to commit riddle-crimes, even though it will jeopardize his freedom and financial well-being. When Robin wonders why he would take such a risk, Batman explains that for him it is not about the money, it is an obsession. As it turns out, Batman's right; Riddler is uneasy with his new life, and eventually decides to try to kill Batman once and for all just to remove the temptation to backslide. Discussed by the creators during the DVD commentary of "Critters." The episode does explain why Farmer Brown cannot make money with his actual discoveries (Court orders and lawsuits shut him down), but he has obviously found some way of getting rich given the technology and equipment he employs. The weapons and tools he uses during the episode must have cost millions and the producers themselves did not understand why Farmer Brown would be demanding payment from the city, since he obviously already has cash. Revenge makes perfect sense, but extortion does not and they offered no explanation. Poison Ivy somehow managed to afford a gigantic mansion with its own power plant and extensive grounds in order to set up a fake health spa for one episode... complete with a staff of women loyal enough to kill on her part and try fighting the Batman, and a greenhouse full of extremely rare, nearly extinct, fully-grown trees found only in the depths of the Amazon.

comment
Homage: A shot where Batman (seen only in shadow) takes apart Poison Ivy's plant monster with an axe perfectly mirrors Mickey's destruction of the broom in The Sorceror's Apprentice. In "Fear of Victory," the football player Brian and what is revealed of his life seems to be a reference to the book and film Brian's Song. In "Mudslide," Clayface reveals the first name of his accomplice when he shouts... "STELLAAAAAAA!", and "Dr. Bates once owned a motel..." Fictional example, Batman based the layout of the Batcave on his superhero idol "The Gray Ghost." "Legends of the Dark Knight." Four kids share their views of the Bat. One boy says he is a metahuman with wings. Another says he is a cheery guy who calls Robin "chum." The girl retells an iconic scene from Batman: The Dark Knight Returns: with Darkseid's voice. In "Perchance to Dream", Gordon says to Batman "Any idea what it [the mind-control helmet] is?" and Batman deadpans back the final line of The Maltese Falcon: In "Almost Got 'Im", Poison Ivy's hat and coat (and the general atmosphere of the underworld club they're in) is a shoutout to Ilsa's in Casablanca. Especially the way shadows fall across her face, with that hat. "It's Never Too Late" has a homage to the gangster film Angels with Dirty Faces—the two boys, one of whom becomes a priest (Michael), the other a gangster (Arnold Stromwell). And the scene on the railroad tracks alludes to a similiar scene in the film. "Heart of Steel" has a boatload — Blade Runner (Karl Rossum, "Duplicants"), Metropolis (Randa Duane's jumpsuit), Terminator (Randa Duane's eventual fate), and The Killing Joke (The scene at Commissioner Gordon's house). "His Silicon Soul" was the premise of Blade Runner, with Batman's replicant believing it was Batman. Lupin III's The Castle of Cagliostro is given an homage with a battle in a clock tower that has many similar shots. In "Over The Edge", when Gordon is hanging off the roof, the shots are mimicking Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo.

Ascended Extra: Batgirl was a minor supporting character in the initial seasons, only appearing as Batgirl in three episodes, but becomes part of the primary cast after the revamp. To a lesser extent, the first Robin. He was already a recurring character, but he started appearing in every episode in the The Adventures of Batman & Robin era.

Harley Quinn is the most popular of the immigrants and has starred in her own comic series and guest-starred in several ongoing series, serving as the Joker's henchwoman and as a villain (and sometimes hero) in her own right. The partnership/friendship/something more relationship between her and Poison Ivy has likewise been adapted into the comics, and in December 2009 the two began co-starring (along with Catwoman) in Gotham City Sirens.

Off-Model: Not strange for a series like this where multiple companies would be used, but most evident whenever Sunrise or AKOM animated an episode. Constant issues regarding this was what got both studios fired from the series.note The studios, in addition to the aforementioned AKOM and Sunrise included TMS Entertainment, Spectrum Animation, Jade Animation, Koko Enterprises, Studio Junio and Blue Pencil Animation; with assistance from Mr. Big Cartoons, NOA Animation, and further uncredited support from Tama Productions, Hong Ying, Nakamura Productions, DAST Corparation, Anime Spot, Sunmin Animation, Ishigaki Production and Studio Ghibli (the latter for TNBA only) One example of this ended up changing a character's design completely. Namely that of The Scarecrow- The animators of "Nothing to Fear" changed his posture from hunched over to standing straight, a change carried over to the character's later appearances.

Oh, Crap!
 Batman: The Animated Series / int_ad1db87c
comment
Oh, Crap!: Charles Collins in "Joker's Favor" ironically gets The Joker to do this after the Joker tormented him for the entire episode. It becomes a truly satisfying conclusion. Though, of course, Charlie has his own moment at the start of the episode when he realizes just who the other driver he was yelling at really is: During the Superman: The Animated Series episode Knight Time, Superman impersonates Batman, as Bruce Wayne has gone missing and Gotham's supervillains are getting bolder. Bane's face after seeing "Batman" throw a Moai statute across a room is a study in this trope. Implicit in the show's opening sequence, when the two suspects are intercepted on the rooftop by Batman and their eyes get big.

Several villains whose comics incarnations were essentially doing things For the Evulz gained sympathetic motives or personalities. The Mad Hatter originally had no backstory in the comics, but was introduced in the series as a victim of Love Makes You Evil; minor gimmick crook Mister Freeze's reimagining as an Anti-Villain was so successful it was later imported into the comics, albeit with Darker and Edgier elements.

Likewise, Batman in the early episodes is not quite the grim, super-serious gruff Deadpan Snarker he would later be in Justice League, he smiles, displays warmth, has an affable Cool Big Bro dynamic with Robin (especially in "Christmas with the Joker"). Indeed, as part of his overall Myth Arc, Batman becomes a much colder, darker, and asocial person, alienating his allies, showing the true cost of his "war on crime".

Take That!: In addition to its Shout-Out to the Silver Age comics and Frank Miller's Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, the episode "Legends of the Dark Knight" is renowned for its blatant Take That against the Joel Schumacher films. A flamboyant kid named Joel, wearing a feather boa and standing in front of a Shoemaker sign, gushes over Batman's "tight rubber armor" and "flashy car" which he's heard can "drive up walls." The other kids dismiss him out of hand. It is reported, however, that Schumacher himself apparently found this scene hilarious when he saw it.

The Don: Rupert Thorne and Arnold Stromwell deconstruct this trope: They follow it completely except at The Patriarch part: Rupert Thorne cares for his brother Mathew, but he is the cause his brother has become a Back-Alley Doctor. Stromwell has destroyed his marriage, driven his son to drugs, and has not seen his priest brother in years. Both of them are a curse on their loved ones.

The Penguin decided to abandon crime one day when he was released from Stonegate, deciding that he never wanted to return to jail again, but when he learned that the woman he began to fall in love with was only spending time with him to mock his uncultured ways he relapsed into villainy. However, unlike the other villains, he does manage to stay out of jail in The New Batman Adventures. He didn't really reform and uses his nightclub as a front for shady deals, but he does a much better job of ensuring his legal safety. Batman is well-aware that Penguin hasn't changed, but keeps him around because he is just as often a good source of information about other, more dangerous criminals.

Fictional Disability: Baby Doll suffers from "systemic hypoplasia"note Real medical terminology for a non-existent condition (hypoplasia is when someone is born with an organ that isn't properly developed), meaning that she can never grow up, and resembles a little girl despite being well into adulthood.

Ink-Suit Actor: Harley Quinn, the Joker's lovable henchwoman, was based on her voice-actress, Arleen Sorkin. The producers are apparently amazed that she still talks to them. Although this version of the Penguin was based on Danny Devito's appearance in Batman Returns, he ultimately ends up looking like his voice actor, Paul Williams. In "Prophecy of Doom", Ethan Clark is modeled after his voice actor William Windom.

Lock-up may be one of the purest examples of this, being a former head of security at Arkham who was fired for brutalizing the inmates, who comes back as a villain trying to imprison forever the "scum" that he feels represent the people that allowed Gotham to get this way (including the head doctor at Arkham, Commisioner Gordon, Mayor Hill, and Summer Gleeson). In true Knight Templar fashion, he has no idea that he's gone too far (he views Batman as a potential partner, much to the other's disgust).

In "Shadow of the Bat," Commissioner Gordon is accused of being an employee of Rupert Thorne, Gotham's ranking mob boss.

Hollywood Homely: Invoked; the prevalence of the trope drives the plot of one episode. Page Monroe is a former supermodel-turned-villain who was fired when she was viewed as "too old." However, once unmasked, both Batgirl and Batman comment that she is still startlingly attractive, but she considers herself ugly, which Batman states is because she can only see her minor "imperfections." This is also a case of Actor Allusion as Page Monroe was voiced by Sela Ward, who was famous for having been dumped as a model in favor of younger women.

Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: While everyone likes to bring up "Mad Love" as an example of the Joker being extremely abusive to Harley, they seem to forget that "Joker's Millions" ended with Harley beating the hell out of HIM because he hadn't paid to get her freed from Arkham, opting to hire a "replacement" Harley instead. The scene is played pretty much for laughs. Also notable, "Harlequinade." Harley gives it her genuine best shot to murder the Joker, not to defend herself from any clear and present danger, nor even because he had almost blown up Gotham with her in it. She was just mad about not being included in his plan to the point that she tried to kill him out of jealousy.

Retro Universe: It is shown in "Cold Comfort" that that episode is set in August of 1997 and the technology is effectively that of the 1990s, but the industrial design is the Art Deco of the 1930s and 40s and people still wear hats. A particularly glaring example was seen in "Fear of Victory," whose plot hinges on a college football game. The athletes are shown playing without facemasks and wearing leather helmets, out of fashion since at least the 1950's. Televisions were typically black and white (though color ones existed). One episode showed that Bruce Wayne owns a black and white TV. Yeah, the billionaire with the massive, high-res computers in his basement. Batman has the Batwing, a highly advanced jet (or possibly rocket) powered VTOL aircraft. All of the other planes in the series use propellers. Its also worth noting that the jet powered batwing can't outrun (but can out maneuver) the bulky retro-tastic helicopters that are popular in Gotham.

An aversion is the episode "Off Balance." In two separate occasions someone falls from a high place into water; the first time the person resurfaces but does not make any movement or sound and disappears under the waves again. The second time the person's fate is not made clear, but it is implied in Batman and Talia's subsequent dialogue that he died.

Fan Disservice: Only slightly less frequent. Any time we had to see the Joker without his pants on. Or in just his sleeveless undershirt. Or (most horrific of all) a bathing suit. (Yes, it was a 1920s bathing suit, but it still didn't cover enough.) Poison Ivy's deliciously curvy body melting down into a puddle of steaming green goo. note  Actually not Ivy herself, but a plant-based clone she had used as a decoy to escape. Clayface had a few moments. Toward the end of "Feat of Clay", we get to see Matt Hagen naked (although in profile, of course). Then we see his body go all clay-ey. Another scene in "Feat of Clay" showed Hagen masquerading as a sexy dark-haired girl. "She" began to giggle...and then her squeaky laughter became more like that of Jabba the Hutt as Hagen's golden, pupil-less eyes appeared... Zoologist Francine Langstrom is pretty cute. But not as the female Man-Bat. Hunky Anthony Romulus turns into a werewolf. But that's not nearly as horrible as when he turns into a half-werewolf. Randa, one of HARDAC's stunningly humanlike robots, is a dead ringer for Marilyn Monroe - and wiggle-walks like her, too. Then she gets half her face blown off, and we learn that she resembles a T-1000 under there. Throw in freakish robot strength and more than a little of the Uncanny Valley, and you've got a surprisingly effective lower-tier villain.

Ret-Canon: Prior to Batman: TAS, Mister Freeze was a thug in a powered suit with an ice gun and actually was dead in the comics when the show first aired. The show gave Freeze a tragic past which DC promptly incorporated into the comics with the result of completely revitalizing the character. The 2009 Batgirl series reveals that "The Gray Ghost" is now an old TV show within the DCU proper, and an ardent fan of hers assumes the "Grey Ghost" identity, complete with hat and mask, in an attempt to be her sidekick. Batgirl herself, Stephanie Brown, explains that she never watched the show, but she knows that the main character must have been smarter and saner than this guy. After No Mans Land, Batman went back to wearing the costume without the yellow oval, like he did during The New Batman Adventures. Similarly, Tim Drake took to wearing a costume to the one from TNBA following Infinite Crisis's "One Year Later" Time Skip.

The architecture is still oppressive, and the better-known inmates seem to enjoy making life hell for each other, but it is shown to have some good doctors, who have some sadly temporary success with Harvey Dent, Harley Quinn and Edward Nygma. Harely herself was also a therapist at Arkham that fell in love with the Joker. It shows the place isn't that great for its staff either. The episode Lock-Up, however, features Arkham guard Lyle Bolton, who gets fired after it's revealed he's on a serious power trip that has made him violently abusive to inmates including Harley and Jonathan Crane.

Freudian Excuse: While it's played straight with most of the villains (most notably Mr. Freeze, whose revamped origin made him a Canon Immigrant to the comics), the Joker uses this to get out of trouble and manipulate Harley.

Self-Deprecation: Ted Dymer, the Loony Fan so obsessed with the Gray Ghost and toy collecting that he holds the city for ransom as "The Mad Bomber", just for more money to spend on pop culture memorabilia, is modeled after and voiced by Bruce Timm (see Creator Cameo). Notably, while Batman is used in the episode as a positive Author Avatar to pay tribute to the Adam West series, Ted is nothing more than a creepy little jerk.

Informed Ability: Apparently, Lock-Up is such a horrific guard that he has driven even the already-insane inmates of Arkham insane, paralyzing the Scarecrow, "The God of Fear," with fear. When his offenses against the patients are actually given, however, it is debatable as to whether they are extreme or standard asylum fare, apart from his mental abuse of the Ventriloquist, possibly because the show could not portray anything worse.

An obscure one: Arlene Sorkin played Cloudcuckoolander Calliope Jones in the soap opera Days of Our Lives during the '80s. In one episode Calliope had a dream sequence where she was a court jester, and wore a harlequin costume. Paul Dini has confirmed that her performance on Days, especially the dream sequence, was a key inspiration for the character of Harley Quinn.

Batman tries to stop him as he targets Two Face, only to discover at the end that The Judge is really a new multiple personality of Harvey Dent.

Arguably the second most popular immigrant would have to be Mister Freeze's reimagining as an Anti-Villain with a tragic backstory rather than an ice themed gimmicky one, having been adopted by the mainstream comics as well as the Batman: Arkham Series.

Deliberately Monochrome: There are several instances within the series, i.e. "Pretty Poison", "It's Never Too Late", that use a distinct sepia tone to indicate a Flashback sequence. Throughout the first couple seasons before the visuals were retooled to match Superman: The Animated Series, the animators were consistent that any in-series TV or film footage was in black and white.

Eureka Moment: In "P.O.V.", Officer Wilkes hears one of the captured criminals refer to "Doc," and Officer Montoya hears another criminal refer to "Hathcock." It is only when she is taking the train home later that she makes the realization that 'Doc' is 'Dock', and she goes to the Hathcock warehouse at Gotham Harbor. In "Beware the Gray Ghost", when the evidence points to Simon Trent being the Mad Bomber, since he has all the merchandise and knows all about the episode, he told Batman he had sold everything to the toy collector.

Lower-Deck Episode: A few of the episodes in the series shift the focus away from Batman and his Rogues Gallery to Gotham City in general. There's P.O.V. that looks at Gotham's police force, Joker's Favour that focuses on a Muggle named Charlie Collins getting involved in the Joker's scheme and The Man Who Killed Batman which deals with the underworld from the perspective of Sid the Squid, a one-shot character.
