Happy 23 anniversary to one of the best cyberpunk show ever. The one & only Batman Beyond. The great follower of the DCAU Batman.
Batman: The Animated Series period (This is the starting point of this universe. It includes Batman's show, Batman: Mask of the Phantasm & Batman & Mr. Freeze: SubZero)
2. Superman: The Animated Series & The New Batman Adventures period (This period continues the events of Batman: The Animated Series & gives many characters the new animation style)
3. Static Shock & Justice League period (This is the largest period. It includes Static Shock, Justice League, Batman and Harley Quinn, Justice League Unlimited, Batman: Mystery of Batwoman & Justice League vs the Fatal Five. It also includes web series Gotham Girls & Lobo)
4. Batman Beyond & The Zeta Project period (Chronologically this is the last period set in this universe. It includes Batman Beyond, The Zeta Project & Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker. It also includes Justice League Unlimited episode "Epilogue" which works as a finale to Batman Beyond & DCAU in general)
This is something I was thinking about recently what if the Royal Flush Gang that was lead by Donna Walker's father didn't show up until the mid to late 2010s since 10/Donna would have been in her late teens at that time and her future husband mr. Walker would have been under the Jack mantle.
The Royal Flush Gang may been the last super villains to face the original Batman in the Beyond bat-suit. it is very likely that King / mr. Walker and Queen/Donna Walker recognized the bat suit worn by the new Batman since it was worn by the original put broken the gang up in the first place.
in made of honor part 2 when batman intercepts the kazain air force utilizes a new weapon in the 2nd Batwing which appears to be some sort of energy Cannon of some kind which ends up obliterating a kazain fighter jet with the pilot dying in the explosion.
Unlike in secret Origins when Batman Killing the Alien Invaders by punching them into direct sunlight, for Batman in that moment it's a wartime scenario since the Invaders are trying to conquer Earth. in Made of Honor on the other hand it can't be argued that is a wartime scenario yet in fact Batman and Wonder Woman broke international law by flying into kasnia uninvited and engaging its military in combat.
Does anyone feel that this version of the Return of the Joker trailer should've been included in MVP: Most Valuable Primate 2001 VHS?
Since I watched the DCAU in chronological order, I've been wondering what happened to the original 7 members in Batman Beyond along with the extended League.I don't count the comics as they're not canon to the DCAU(Timm himself said it's not).
Lately, I've been able to do a full re-watch of BTAS, Batman Beyond, JL, and JLU thanks to HBO Max. After going through all of these series, I started to wonder what could happen in the BTAS sequel that is reported to be in the making. JL & JLU opens up possibilities for team-up episodes, while Batman Beyond restrains what be done w/ the bat family.
Team-ups w/ any league member (JLI teammates, brave and bold, etc)
Material from the BTAS Comics (most notably, the barbara/dick/bruce baby situation)
Bruce and Barbara
Tim's Teen Titans
Additional Batman villains (The court of owls)
Royal Flush Gang
What led to Ra's's death
Life after joker was killed.
Batman Inc. (Katana, Metamorpho)
Renee becomes the Question
(Unless they make Beyond non-canon, many of the Can'ts are solely due to this series)
Bruce having a lasting relationship (Selina, Barbara, Diana etc.)
Would love to hear any additions to this list.

As someone who grew up with the Batman animated series I can understand why Bruce opted for monitor Duty in comfort and joy. given that there are two major holiday episodes in the Batman the Animated Series, the first being Christmas with the Joker which of course occurs on Christmas Eve. and then there's the holiday Knights episode which involved a bunch of Batman's Rogues causing trouble throughout the holiday season.
if you think about it around the holiday season Gotham would be extremely vulnerable because a lot of the gcpd officers are probably be going on vacation with their families or even visiting family outside of Gotham during the holiday season. which means Batman has a lot more work cut out for him,
