* OnlySaneMan: When Bruce informs the Bat-Kids (sans Cassandra) that Bane is coming to Gotham and will likely attempt to kill them all, Dick, Jason and Damian immediately state their desire to stay and fight. Duke is the only one to heed Batman's warning.

During several critical junctures in Batman's career, Alfred was the key factor in his survival. A master surgeon, Alfred was almost always the one to patch him back up after particularly gruesome battles, since Batman couldn't very well simply go to the hospital. Alfred can be said to be the closest thing to a father figure that Bruce has - his advice is the often the only one that Bruce gives a second thought about. Or, as Michael Caine has said, he's more of the replacement mother figure in contrast with Gordon's replacement father.[[hardline]]

* SplitPersonality: Jean Paul's Azrael persona is significantly different from his civilian identity of Jean-Paul Valley. As the the [[ChurchMilitant sect]] that trained him was a largely medieval organization, he would often take a course of action that could have been more easily accomplished using modern technology. For example, during the ''Contagion'' arc, when a deadly plague was spreading through Gotham City, Azrael had to get the recipe for a cure to the hospitals. His solution to this was a mad rush across military lines, and though he succeeded, he discovered upon arriving at his destination that his allies had already sent the cure recipe to the hospitals by email. This is contradictory to the mindset of Jean-Paul Valley, who, being a student of programming, would be completely aware of such a solution. A third, though less developed, personality is Batman. This personality manifested during Jean-Paul's stint at the Caped Crusader, and remanifested near the end of his series. It combined the intellect of Jean-Paul Valley and the bloodlust of Azrael, but lacked the compassion of Jean-Paul.

Later, in ComicBook/DCRebirth, Ace would appear in a one-off story, and was given to Bruce as a gift by Alfred. At the same time, Titus is still around.



* DecompositeCharacter: It seemed like Titus was the New 52 version of Ace, and was even part German Shepherd. But Tom King's story in the Rebirth ''Batman'' annual has Alfred give Bruce a dog called Ace, and he ''is in fact'' actually called the Bat-Hound by Bruce. Because of this, Ace and Titus are now two different characters.



* RaceLift: A German Shepherd in UsefulNotes/{{the Silver Age|of Comic Books}}, while his ComicBook/PostCrisis version is a puggle. Titus is a Great Dane.

[[/folder]]

[[folder: '''Gotham Girl''' (Claire Clover)]]
->''"Everyone gets scared. But remember, all that means is everyone gets the opportunity to fight that fear. Everyone gets the chance to be '''brave.'''''"

A young woman from a rich family, Claire's family were saved by Batman. Her brother Hank was inspired by Batman and passed on his obsession to Claire. The two worked in homeless shelters and developing countries before one day undergoing a procedure to attain superpowers. They returned to Gotham, where they help with Batman's war on crime as Gotham and Gotham Girl.

!! Tropes that apply to Claire Clover:
* [[AscendedFanboy Ascended Fangirl]]: Became a fan of Batman thanks to her brother, and now works with Batman.
* BreakTheCutie: She's become mentally unwell, courtesy of Hugo Strange and her brother's death.
* CastFromHitpoints: The Gothams tend to use their powers enough that they're as strong and fast as Superman. This actually shortens their lifespans, and she says if they kept going, they'd only live for two years. However, they can further increase their powers, to the point where Gotham was able to easily defeat the Justice League on his own.
* Expy: Of Supergirl. Her appearance invokes it, at least until she cuts her hair.
* FlyingBrick: Bruce compares her to Superman, though she doesn't have his super breath
* HappilyMarried: Her narration in the epilogue of "I am Gotham" has her mention that she's married to Duke.
* ImportantHaircut: She cuts her hair extremely short, while talking to her dead brother. It's from then that she becomes ''much'' more unhinged until Batman helps
* MinidressOfPower: Wears a very short skirt, sometimes barely long enough to cover her crotch, sometimes long enough to reach halfway down her thighs.
* StrongButUnskilled: Has no martial arts experience and is new in the use of her powers. She can also bench press a plane.
* SuperPowerLottery: The Clovers got their money's worth.
** {{Flight}}: Faster than a speeding bullet.
** SuperStrength: More powerful than a locomotive.
** XRayVision: She calls it "Ultra-Vision", but it works on all frequencies.

** More specifically, Bruce Wayne/Batman is TheLeader and later the BigGood of the Batfamily, mostly levelheaded and mastermind type. Dick Grayson/Nightwing is TheLancer, his cheery personality as a child and charisma as an adult make him a foil to the brooding Bruce, and a much more respected leader whenever he takes charge. Barbara Gordon/Oracle becomes MissionControl and TeamMom feeding others intelligence reports from afar. Jason Todd/Red Hood is the TokenEvilTeammate as a FallenHero that is sometimes on their side but just as likely a villain. Tim Drake/Red Robin is a GadgeteerGenius variety SmartGuy, and generally Bruce's NumberTwo since Dick usually rides solo. Damian/Robin is the YoungGun and current KidSidekick, who's dark, overly ambitious and still adjusting to Bruce's code. Cassandra Cain/Black Bat is TheQuietOne, and Stephanie Brown/Spoiler the TheChick as the most upbeat and hopeful of the family. Alfred is consistently in the background as OldRetainer TeamDad and occasionally BattleButler. Selina Kyle/Catwoman is the most recurring SixthRanger bouncing back and forth between a heroic and a villainous DarkChick.
