* InkStainAdaptation: In-universe. A three issue story arc in ''Detective Comics'' covered a Batman comic book being written by a publisher who managed to trademark the Batman name and costume because Bruce never did. The story's about how Batman is in fact Satan himself trying earn redemption by cleaning up the evil he let loose on Earth, using a mortal host named Simon Petrarch. The Joker is the manifestation of the demons who don't want evil to be wiped out, Robin is Simon Petrarch's guardian angel whose mortal host, a seven year old boy, is psychologically destroyed by the Joker, Catwoman's a spinster who sold her soul for beauty and power, Batgirl is Simon Petrarch's psychotherapist, and the Bathound's a devil dog that transforms into the Batmobile. The artist and writer based on the series on what he's seen and heard about Batman, but later ended the series when a serial killer was using the issues as the inspiration to kill as "Batman."

** In an even more shocking case of questionable morality, Catwoman's first appearance ends with Batman deliberately letting her escape purely because he thinks that she's hot, and joking with Robin about it. Note that Catwoman, also contrary to her later character development, had casually murdered a guy for getting in her way during the story.

* StolenByStayingStill: In one short story, a gem vanished from inside a special display case in a museum. The thief was the curator, who had designed the display case and the lighting for the exhibit. The top pane of glass was a special lens that, when the light shone through it, made the case appear to be empty. He then palmed the gem as he was dissembling the case for the police.

* AmnesiacCostumeIdentity: One comic starts with Batman waking up, only remembering who he is on seeing his outfit. He tries to stop a crime and is quickly beaten down. Then the ''real'' Batman shows up, explaining that the man we've been following since the beginning is an ordinary citizen (who likes to get kinky in the bedroom). He and his wife were roleplaying a RescueRomance scenario when the man hit his head, resulting in the comic's events. Batman leaves, but asks that they stick to Superman outfits from then on.

** Though in each animated series they appear in, they gradually become more BadAss. In BatmanTheAnimatedSeries they were billionaires who committed crimes because they literally did EVERYTHING exciting, who (Mainly Fox) completely crossed the MoralEventHorizon. In ''WesternAnimation/TheBatman'' they were teenage social outcasts considered "freaks" by the majority of their college campus. In which they stole the Man-Bat formula and transformed themselves into [[PettingZooPeople anthropomorphic animals]] (Though they tweaked it to keep their own sentience unlike Man-Bat) and plotted to "Turn everyone in their college into animal people like them, so everyone would be the same" in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' they were warriors who stole ancient animal totems to turn into giant powerful beastmen. In every animated appearance, Fox is always the leader and usually always the final battle for Batman.
