In the present, Duke returned in the ''Comicbook/BatmanEndgame'', and has been announced as the lead of the upcoming ''ComicBook/WeAreRobin'' series. In DCRebirth, Batman tells Duke that he has no intention of training Duke to become a Robin, but something new, in an accelerated pace more akin to a partnership.

** As of Rebirth, Damien is also the foil to Jon Kent's Superboy. Both are the sons of the two greatest superheroes, but, much like their fathers, are polar opposites. One is a brooding, misanthropic, suspicious pain in the backside with too much training and not enough friends, and the other is a cheerful, optimistic, polite little ray of sunshine still getting used to his powers.

* {{Foil}}: To Batman, in various way. Dick's upbeat attitude made him a far more beloved and respected crimefighter than his mentor; Jason was a criminal before becoming Robin, and took the darkest aspects of Batman's goals while ignoring its benevolent spirit; Tim took a more pragmatic and functional approach to crimefighting, detaching it from his personal life instead of BecomingTheMask; Finally, Damian was raised to fight crime ruthlessly and without any tragedy to guide his conscience.

* Robin (Dick Grayson) first animated apparition is in ''The Adventures Of Batman'' and,
afterwards, in ''WesternAnimation/{{Superfriends}}''. This version wore the standard Robin costume, much like the film serial versions of the 1940s.

'''Robin''' is a Creator/DCComics character created as Franchise/{{Batman}}'s sidekick in 1940 and best known as the TropeMaker and TropeCodifier of the KidSidekick archetype. There have been many, ''many'' [[LegacyCharacter different Robins]] throughout the character's publication, but most of them have common elements. With only a few exceptions, they are usually orphaned teenage males with some sort of acrobatic or martial arts prowess and wear a brightly-colored costume (typically red, green and yellow).

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. The Robin appearing here is a mix of the first and third Robins. It's intentionally left ambiguous which Robin he is. Most people assume that he's Dick Grayson, since most of the clues point to it—the biggest of which being an AlternateUniverse counterpart with the name Nosyarg Kcid.

* ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. The Robin appearing here is a mix of the first and third Robins. Leader of the Titans team, this is the first version of Robin that act independent from Batman (who is never mentioned in the show with just some hidden reference). It's intentionally left ambiguous which Robin he is. is as has never been directly referred to by full name. The style of this version's costume is still closely modeled on Tim Drake's first costume; however the colors are those of Dick Grayson and Jason Todd. Most people assume that he's Dick Grayson, since most of the clues point to it—the biggest of which being an AlternateUniverse counterpart with the name Nosyarg Kcid.Kcid (Dick Grayson spelled backwards).

* Robin appear in ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'', introduced in Season 4. Based on the Dick Grayson version, in this instead of being a teenager to adult, he is 12. He borrows elements from the Tim Drake version, such as costume design and computer aptitude. His origin in "A Matter of Family" follows Grayson's from the comic books with the exception of his being Batman's second sidekick (Batgirl in introduced in Season 3), but his first official sidekick.

* Robin as Dick Grayson appear in Creator/JoelSchumacher movies ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' played by Chris O'Donnell. This version of Robin merged together his younger, more carefree days with his older incarnation (before he became Nightwing). His origin is actually a composite of two comic-book Robins; in the comics, Two-Face killed Jason Todd's parents, and that element (along with Jason's desire for revenge) were imported into Chris O'Donnell's Dick Grayson character.
* John Blake. Appearing in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', this is the Robin of ''Film/TheDarkKnightSaga'' though rather than becoming Batman's sidekick [[spoiler:he's implied to have become the new Batman after Bruce Wayne's supposed HeroicSacrifice]]. In fact, [[spoiler:Robin is the character's legal first name]].

* In the original ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', a college-aged Dick Grayson was Robin, and generally true to his roots. However, when the show was revived and revamped as ''The New Batman Adventures,'' they decided to shake up the status quo, graduating Dick to Nightwing and introducing a young Tim Drake as Robin. They skipped Jason Todd due to the character having some baggage that isn't exactly family friendly, but given that Jason Todd had an excellent origin story, the decision was made to combine the two into one. In this universe, Dick Grayson never quite reconciled with Bruce after their initial falling out. They could get along and work together, but were permanently estranged at some point. Meanwhile, Tim Drake had his career as Robin cut short after being brutalized by and [[spoiler:accidentally killing The Joker]]. He grows up into a successful engineer with a wife (who, according to DVD extras, is meant to be an older Stephanie Brown) and kids.
