This comic heavily influenced ''Film/BatmanBegins'' and VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins took some elements from it. In 2011, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanYearOne an animated adaptation]] in the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies line was released; the adaptation is almost word-for-word.

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: In the extras, it's shown that Dave Mazucchelli based Bruce Wayne's appearance from actor Creator/GregoryPeck. This is a nod to the casting that Creator/OrsonWelles had intended for a possible ''Batman'' adaptation that never came into fruition.

''Batman: Year One'' is unique in the following: It was deemed the official origin story for Batman ComicBook/PostCrisis, and remained canon despite other {{Cosmic Retcon}}s until the Comicbook/{{New 52}}, where it would eventually be replaced by Creator/ScottSnyder and Greg Capullo's ''Zero Year''. It is also canon to the "Dark Knight Universe", an AlternateContinuity comprised of Miller's other ''Batman'' stories, including ''ComicBook/AllStarBatmanAndRobinTheBoyWonder'', ''[[ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns The Dark Knight Returns]]'', and ''ComicBook/TheDarkKnightStrikesAgain''.

Added DiffLines:

* CoincidentalBroadcast: A borderline case - as usual, Miller uses a ''lot'' of news broadcasts to further/hand-wave certain plot developments, but these are more for the readers' convenience; few if any of the ''characters'' are shown directly responding to them.

* DudeWheresMyReward: Catwoman's first heist results in Batman getting the credit. Her second heist ''does'' net her credit... as Batman's assistant.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSeventies: While the book itself was written in the 80's, the story is set roughly ten years prior from present day, landing it somewhere in the late 70's. Gotham City here is very similar to late 70's New York (especially the red light district) as seen through ''Film/TaxiDriver'' and Miller's earlier work on ''Daredevil''.

* HeroOfAnotherStory: While Batman and Jim Gordon are the mains, Assistant D.A. Harvey Dent makes a few appearances here and there, and is mentioned to have been (trying) to combat Gotham's corruption long before either of them.
