* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.


Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** Also in Batman 666, which introduced Professor Pyg long before his present-day debut in ''Batman: Reborn''. Also in the same issue, Damian claims he was never as good as Bruce or Dick, implying that Dick would also become Batman.

Added DiffLines:

** Batman's description of the "ultimate villain" in ''Batman'' #674 mentions this hypothetical foe possessing "access to allies, weapons, and tactics [Batman] couldn't imagine" as well as being "[a]n adversary whose plots and grand designs were so vast, so elaborate, that they went unnoticed." While this sets up the Black Glove and [[spoiler: Dr. Hurt]], it also sounds suspiciously like a description of [[spoiler: Darkseid, who turns out to be the Greater Scope Villain of Batman RIP and The Return of Bruce Wayne.]] Likewise, the devil imagery effectively sets up [[spoiler: the Religion of Crime, as well as Darkseid's traditional role as the archfiend of the DC Universe.]]

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Batman's been buried alive by the Black Glove, who plan to let him suffocate just long enough to leave him brain damaged so they can keep him as a pet. Batman digs himself out within minutes, delivering possibly the greatest monologue in Batman history.
--> '''Batman''': "206 bones, five major organs, 60,000 miles of blood vessels. All it takes is time. Days. Months. Years, spent memorizing the finite ways there are to hurt and break a man. Preparing for all of them. I've escaped from every conceivable deathtrap. Ten times. A dozen times. I can slow my breathing and metabolism to control panic and conserve air. Straitjacket's kindergarden. Locks, too. Benchpressing a pine coffin lid through 600 pounds of loose soil that's filling your mouth, crushing your lungs flat and shredding your dehydrated muscles? That's harder. *Batman bursts out of the ground* But far from impossible."

** [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig Zagged]] withLord Death Man, a villain from Japan in ''Batman, Inc.'' While he is identified with [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Batman_Vol_1_180 the earlier villain "Death Man,"]] he's far more closely based on the version who appeared in the 1960s licensed ''Manga/{{Batman}}'' manga, but had become a BreakoutVillain in the US fandom when selections of the manga were translated into English and published in the US in 2008. At the end of the second issue, after [[spoiler:Jiro has become Batman Japan]], we also see Professor Gorilla, another one of the original villains from the manga. (Who was also loosely based on a one-off villain from [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Detective_Comics_Vol_1_339 an earlier American comic.]])
