* BadassGrandpa: Batman, obviously, but also Jim Gordon, Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, Superman (despite having not really physically aged) and Alfred to some extent. And less sympathetically, the Joker too.

* WhatTheHellHero: From Alfred after Bruce waxes on about Carrie's qualities as Robin:
--> '''Alfred''': Very well, sir, I shall come right out and say it. Have you forgotten what happened to Jason?

Added DiffLines:

* {{Forgiveness}}: Bruce Wayne has forgiven Joe Chill for killing parents, finally understanding that all he ever wanted was money before the situation escalated. In spite of this, his Batman mindset still wants to punish him for robbery and murder in general.
-->'''Bruce''': He flinched when he pulled the trigger. He was sick and guilty over what he did. All he wanted was money. I was naive enough to think him the lowest sort of man.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakingTheFourthWall: Batman swears in his inner monologue that he's firing rubber bullets on the Mutants. There's seriously no way he's not trying to directly convince the reader he's telling the truth.

* MisBlamed: {{In-universe}} example--Batman is accused by the media of inspiring a number of incidents, from a mentally-ill mob enforcer putting on a Batman costume and turning on his boss, to a very disturbed man's religiously-motivated shooting up of a porn theater. Meanwhile, a shop owner who actually WAS inspired by Batman chases off a purse-snatcher attacking an old lady. No one is hurt enough for this to make the news.
