* ''Gotham Underground'' - A limited series that focuses on the effects of the Countdown to Final Crisis on Batman's RoguesGallery, not to mention the recent death of Black Mask. While the rest of the Bat-family struggle to prevent a gang war from breaking out, Batman - undercover as a henchman - winds up in prison. By the end of the series, [[spoiler:Penguin finds himself Batman's informant - whether he likes it or not.]]

* SupernaturalFearInducer: Batman enemy Scarecrow uses fear gas to cause hallucinations, paranoia, and even full on panic-induced heart attacks in his victims. Sometimes this overlaps with IKnowWhatYouFear, while other times it's just straight up irrational terror.

* ''ComicBook/SupermanBatman'' - Mentioned above, this is a team-up series with Franchise/{{Superman}} that is the SpiritualSuccessor to "World's Finest". But unlike "World's Finest", Superman/Batman features major story lines for both characters, most notably Superman with its first arc featuring the two bringing down President ComicBook/LexLuthor (which was later spun off into the direct-to-DVD movie ''WesternAnimation/SupermanBatmanPublicEnemies'') and its second arc re-introducing the Pre-Crisis ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} to TheDCU.

* DatingCatwoman: TropeCodifier. On-again and off-again with Selina Kyle, both before and after he learned her true identity. Some say the ''only'' woman he has ever loved.

On-again and off-again with Selina Kyle, both before and after he learned her true identity. Some say the ''only'' woman he has ever loved.
** He has a similar relationship with Talia al Ghul, the daughter of ArchEnemy Ra's al Ghul - they even had a child together (though Bruce was drugged during the actual act), the fifth Robin Damian Wayne.
** Bruce tends to be attracted to women on the wrong side of the law more often than not. ''ComicBook/GothamCitySirens'' notes that the only two women that Batman has ever loved were Catwoman/Selina Kyle and Talia al Ghul, both members of his RoguesGallery.

* SanitySlippage: DependsOnTheWriter, but some feel Batman's ''already'' lost his mind and is a functioning psychotic. Eel O'Brian summed it up best when Bruce was separated from Batman.

-->'''Eel:''' All that rage and no place to put it. No training to use it. So it just eats away at ya more and more until they eventually lock you up. Until you and [[ComicBook/GreenLantern Raynor]] and me are fightin' over a pudding cup in the psycho ward.

** [[ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}]] [=AzBats=] does this with Abattoir, to Robin's horror. Worse, this leads to the death of an innocent person.

* MurderByInaction: In issue #633, Robin (Stephanie Brown) dies due to torture and Batman later discovers that Dr. Leslie Thompkins deliberately withheld treatment that could've saved her life but chose not to in order to teach the kids of Gotham a lesson about superheroing. This was retconned into Thompkins making Batman think that Stephanie died, but she didn't really die.
