Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Minor example with Blade; she doesn't contribute to the assignment at all, but still aces it because of Terry.


Added DiffLines:

* RobotBuddy: The Egg Baby is a pain, but it unintentionally helps Terry a lot, crying in fear at the sight of Ma Mayhem and her sons, becoming something of an alarm when they try to sneak up on him.

Added DiffLines:

* BabysitterFromHell: Sort of. While Terry does score an A on the assignment due to the amount of excitement and emotional stimulation he gave it, the teacher would likely not be so approving if she knew how it happened.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It turns out that Terry receives the highest grade in class for the project because he not only took care of his Eggbaby but also gave it the most excitement and emotional stimulation. His teacher lauds him as being excellent father material. Terry is at first ecstatic but then he notices the suggestive grins on the faces of all the women in his class...

Added DiffLines:

Terry is failing his Family Studies course. His teacher offers him one more opportunity to pass: a project in which he has to [[EggSitting take care of an Eggbaby as if it were an actual child]]. Unfortunately, his assigned partner [[AlphaBitch Blade]] dumps the entire project on him. This, combined with the arrival of a new gang of villains in Gotham, forces Terry to take the Eggbaby along with him on his missions as Batman.

!!Tropes:

* AbusiveParent / EvilMatriarch: Ma Mayhem towards her two sons.
* BerserkButton: Do NOT remind Ma Mayhem of the fact that her husband abandoned her to run off with a younger woman.
* BrawnHilda: Ma Mayhem again.
* EggSitting: Currently provides the page image.
* EmmyBait: WordOfGod admits that this episode was intentionally designed to be more lighthearted compared to the otherwise [[DarkerAndEdgier dark]] show in an attempt to win an Emmy award. [[TropesAreNotBad They succeeded]].
* FatAndSkinny: Carl and Slim, Ma Mayhem's two sons.
* GenreThrowback: In contrast to most of Terry's opponents, who tend to have advanced futuristic superpowers, Ma Mayhem is much closer to the quirky villains of the original Batman's classic RoguesGallery.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: It turns out that Terry receives the highest grade in class for the project because he not only took care of his Eggbaby but also gave it the most excitement and emotional stimulation. His teacher lauds him as being excellent father material. Terry is at first ecstatic but then he notices the suggestive grin on Dana's face...
* LighterAndSofter: The producers stated that they brainstormed this episode's plot by thinking of the funniest and most ridiculous plots that they could put Batman in.
* ParentsForADay: Terry becomes such for his Eggbaby.
* TeenPregnancy: Bruce initially assumes that Terry caused this when he first hears the Eggbaby's cries.
-->'''Bruce:''' Terry, is there something you need to tell me?
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe:
-->'''Bruce:''' Even real parents with real children find ways to get away for a night.\\
'''Terry:''' I tried leaving it with my mom but she said she was too young to be a grandma.\\
'''Bruce:''' What about your brother?\\
'''Terry:''' I tried that too, and I caught him shooting rubber bands at it. Hey, you know maybe you could...\\
(''Bruce gives him a "Don't even think about it" glare'')\\
'''Terry:''' Nevermind.
