* LickingTheBlade: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker does this to a knife when he confronts Batman at the end of ''R.I.P.'' [[spoiler:and he ''splits his tongue'' when he does so.]]

* MeaningfulName: Oberon Sexton, "The Gravedigger." [[spoiler:Not only are Shakespearean Gravediggers also referred to as "Clowns", as mentioned below, but Oberon's the King of the Fairies, or, alternately, King of the Fey. Fey-king = Faking. [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker It's a joke, kids!]]]]

** Honestly, though, SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker probably doesn't ''care'' who's under the mask or may be just crazy enough to forget about it anyway.

** And before that, we have ''The Return of Bruce Wayne'', which averts this as it deals with the Justice League trying to figure out how to prevent Batman from destroying the universe. However, it plays it straight once more as ''Batman And Robin'''s "''Batman and Robin Must Die!''" arc is happening simultaneously as ''Return'' and the Justice League don't join Batman in taking back his city. After this, Morrison's run separates itself completely from the larger DC universe.

** ''Batman'' #700, "Time and the Batman" features Chief O'Hara alongside Commissioner Gordon when they come to the aid of Batman, Robin, and Prfoessor Nichols. The problem? Post-Crisis, the death of Chief O'Hara kicked off the events of ''ComicBook/DarkVictory'', his death being a full year before Dick became Robin.

* ContinuitySnarl: All of which seem to stem from Morrison's apparent uncertainty of whether or not his run has connections to the wider DC Universe. In ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'', Bruce Wayne's skull is dug up and transformed into a Black Lantern to invoke an emotional response in all of Batman's allies while Dick Grayson is busy attempting to ward off all the undead villains that are attacking Gotham. Meanwhile, in Morrison's run, the Blackest Night is apparently not happening in Gotham ''or'' in London as Grayson had transported Wayne's body (which is kept under Wayne Tower as opposed to the unmarked grave ''Blackest Night'' claims it is buried in) to the latter in an attempt to resurrect Batman using a Lazarus Pit.

* BrickJoke: Odd, reverse example - Dick occassionally complains how difficult crime fighting with a cape is. Guess what article of the original Batsuit Damian didn't include in the previously published 666th Batman issue?

** A more straightforward example where ''Batman Incorporated: Leviathan Strikes! #1'' has Knight and Squire asking Batman about a rumor that he had a shrink ray. Later, Batman Japan tells Batman about a fellow superhero he has a crush on who is only a few inches tall...and asks for the shrink ray.

* SupermanStaysOutOfGotham: The events of ''Batman Incorporated'' has worldwide ramifications that sends Gotham into a state of anarchy and chaos that has deteriorated to the point of Batman becoming a wanted vigilante for the first time since his inception. Despite this, none of the Justice League, which Batman is a member of both before and during the New 52, seem to take notice and lend a hand.

* {{Badass}}: Pretty much everyone in Batman Inc. obviously. Batman's goal is to unite them all under one banner as a BadassArmy.

* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler:The final issue ends on an usually somber version of this. Talia is dead, Gotham is saved and Bruce sincerely wants to retire as Batman but that fantasy is short lived as Damian and Talia's graves have been robbed and Ra's Al Ghul seems to be mounting a new plan using Damian's clones. The last issue ends it the acknowledgement that Batman's mission will never end.]]

* OnlyThePureOfHeart: The Fountaion of Life, which Ra's considers to be the source of the Lazarus Pit is one such artifact, as despite being warned that he can't touch it and his intention to taint it, when he ends up in it during his fight with Batman, he's destroyed while Batman is healed of the injuries the Sensei inflicted on him.
