Added DiffLines:

* AccentDepundent: Batman resolves one of the Riddler's riddles by [[spoiler: rhyming "order" with "water"]]. As some reviewers pointed out, this really only works if the speaker has a ''really'' thick Boston accent.


Added DiffLines:

* LatexPerfection: [[spoiler: Ruben Blades ([[{{Retcon}} later Irons]])]] has this for impersonating [[spoiler: the Riddler]]. Not that they needed it, because when the mask gets taken off, [[{{Offmodel}} they looked identical anyway]].

Added DiffLines:

* SeinfeldianConversation: Not exactly on an "irrelevant" topic, but one issue has most of a page devoted to various characters', in various time periods and layers of the narrative, discussion about [[InsistentTerminology "shooting [Batman] in the face"]].

* DodgeTheBullet: [[UpToEleven Taken to eleven]]. Batman is able to grab a gun out of an aggressor's hand so fast that the [[EveryBulletIsATracer tracer]] originates from a location the gun isn't even in anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcon}}: "El Maniaco" goes from being the [[CowboyCop person helping Batman to stop the train from blowing up]] to [[BombThrowingAnarchist being the one blowing up the train]] between issues. Practically [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]], as when the thugs jump off the train, he notes "it's as if they were never here", which from a plot perspective is pretty much true.

Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: When Batman begins threatening to shoot a train full of civilians (ItMakesSenseInContext... kinda), it scares the mustache right off the conductor! This was fixed in the collected edition.


Added DiffLines:

* RecklessPacifist: A big theme of the story is that, no matter what, Batman [[ThouShaltNotKill will not]] kill. Doesn't stop him from unloading multiple clips into a crowd of civilians on a train that's about to blow up to incentivize them to get off it, though.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperheroPackingHeat: The younger Batman in [[NestedStory one of the flashback sequences]] carries guns. [[RecklessPacifist And uses them]]. Outside(?) of the flashbacks, he decides [[InsaneTrollLogic the best way to teach Robin not to use guns is to give him one]].

Added DiffLines:

* SmolderingShoes: A variant. In the infamous scene where [[spoiler: Robin]] is blown up, the victim's still-intact boots and mask are seen being flung from the blast. [[spoiler: Subverted though, as the Robin comes back in the next issue, with the explanation that he was wearing "directional explosives" and [[ArtisticLicensePhysics so was safe from the blast]]. Where he got the spare pair of clothes from is never explained.]]

** He does, however, ride a giant bat. And a tyrannosaurus rex.



* {{Stripperiffic}}: Talia's dress.

* StuffBlowingUp: A train blows up in the first issue, and the explosion lasts several pages! A much [[{{Gorn}} gorier]] example happens later when Batman blows up the Roc.
* SuperDickery: Several examples, but the one where Batman [[http://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/3554261.html detonates Robin]] after Robin [[RecklessSidekick gets himself captured]] takes the cake. [[spoiler:Naked Bruce explains in the next issue how he designed Robin's armor to self-destruct without harming him]].
