* TheCowl: Barbara Gordon was inspired by Batman and takes after him: she wears dark clothes and a cowl, she has no powers, and she patrols Gotham at the night, hunting criminals.
** In ''ComicBook/ElseworldsFinestSupergirlAndBatgirl'', Barbara serves as The Cowl to ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'''s The Cape: she is rude, cynical and bossy; but she wants to protect and help people. ''Comicbook/LexLuthor'' even accuses her from "[skulking] around in the dark alleys and back rooms".

->They use a lot of different words to describe me. Intense. Driven. Exceptional. But I know what they really mean. They mean I'm weird. Dad worries about me, since Mom left. We filled that gap, somehow. Me, my Dad, and my brother, James, Jr. Our weird little family, and the odd little obsession we share, like twisted moths. We can't stay away from the darkness.

* HesBack: Barbara gave up on being Batgirl after the Joker shot her and left her with waist-down paralysis. After several years in comic time (twenty-three years in real time), Barbara regained the use of her legs and became Batgirl again.

Barbara Gordon was the best known and first 'official' bearer of the Batgirl title when the character was introduced in 1966. However, she retired from the position and was later crippled by ComicBook/TheJoker in the 1988 Creator/AlanMoore story ''Comicbook/TheKillingJoke''. The title was passed on to [[LegacyCharacter several other women]], some with Barbara's approval and [[IdentityImpersonator some without]], while she reinvented herself as the tech-savvy Oracle. Oracle served as [[MissionControl an information broker and hacker]] for the various hereos of the DCU, she was reintroduced in the ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' and eventually starred in ''Comicbook/BirdsOfPrey'', an ongoing series created by Creator/ChuckDixon and eventually written by Gail Simone that continued in two volumes until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} relaunch of the DC line in September, 2011. After the relaunch Barbara Gordon regained the use of her legs and reclaimed the Batgirl title.

-->'''Black Canary:''' ''Stop'' it. She's not ''with'' them, can't you see that?\\
'''Batgirl:''' You don't ''know''. How can we ''know'' that?\\
'''Black Canary:''' Because, ''Ms. Normally Pretty Rational'', she is ''covered'' in weapons... but she's not fighting back.

** After getting thrashed by Batwoman (in a case of LetsYouAndHimFight), Batwoman offers Batgirl a handkerchief to clean her bloody nose. Babs is incredulous that Batwoman would carry such a thing in her utility belt. Over twenty issues later, however, Batgirl has started carrying one as well, as she offers it to [[spoiler:Huntress]] after beating her up in an almost identical situation.



* LetsYouAndHimFight: Batwoman busts into Detective McKenna's apartment to apprehend her while Batgirl's there, and ends up [[CurbStompBattle curbstomping]] Babs. While Batgirl wasn't fighting at her full capacity since she wasn't sure what side Batwoman was on, her narration also makes clear that she probably wouldn't have won anyway.
