* UnreliableVoiceover: In chapter two, Flass is narrating the story while Batman attacks him for taking money from drug dealers. Naturally, what he says and what happens are polar opposites. When Gordon beats him up earlier in Chapter 1, he thinks that said cop will doubtless make up a story about twenty attackers and never admit the truth.

* YourCheatingHeart: Gordon cheats on his wife Barbara with his partner, Det. Sarah Essen. Both know it's wrong, so Sarah requests a transfer to another city, and Jim eventually confesses to Barbara, vowing to work on their relationship. Also, Commissioner Loeb tries to blackmail Jim into "playing nice" by showing him pictures of the affair and later calling Barbara to tell on him. (By then, Jim has confessed, and Barbara quickly blows them off. This results in Loeb taking more ''drastic'' measures.).

* FollowTheLeader: This storyline was so successful, it kicked off the various "Year One" storylines in DC, and [[{{Spiderman}} Marvel]].

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

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




!!The animated adaptation contains examples of:
* AdaptationExpansion: The film expands or completely adds a few scenes and makes things the comic left subtle a bit more obvious. The biggest example is a scene demonstrating that the girl Bruce had over during the Gordons' visit was simply TheBeard working for $5000.
* AdaptationNameChange: A minor sort, but Branden's name to modified to Brendon.
* AdaptedOut:
** Branden's second in command, Pratt, is omitted, with Branden/Brendon taking his place as the one Batman punches through a wall.
** The movie also removes mentions of Loeb's resignation and his successor, Grogan.
* CreativeClosingCredits: The first part of the film's credits shows off panels from the newsprint version of the comic.
* DemotedToExtra: In the animated adaptation, Dent is only seen and mentioned once when Gordon investigates him on the belief he is Batman. In the comic he was one of the main three that took down the corrupt network (aside from Batman and Gordon) but he was either not mentioned or his involvement was given to Gordon (such as the reason IA was going after Flass was Dent's doing in the comic but Gordon's in the film and the reason Skeeter was given parole was Dent's doing so Batman could interrogate him). This was most likely due to focus more on Gordon and Batman's beginnings.
* RoleReprisal[=/=]VocalEvolution: Creator/JeffBennett reprises his role from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' as Alfred, though his performance here sounds quite a bit different from his performance in ''Young Justice''.
* ShoutOut: The film changes some of the toys stolen from Loeb into a [[WesternAnimation/TheHuckleberryHoundShow Huckleberry Hound]] and an [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Elmer Fudd]].
* SkintoneSclerae: All of the character designs sport these, as do the designs in the ''WesternAnimation/DCShowcaseCatwoman'' short attached to it.

* AuthorAppeal: Catwoman starts out as a prostitute. Yup, it's a FrankMiller comic, alright. Distressingly, Holly is also one, and she's only thirteen, if that. Bruce himself is more than a little disturbed by that.

** This is probably the ''only'' time FrankMiller doesn't make Batman this.
