* {{Deconstruction}}: The show illustrates the toll being Batman has taken on Bruce's personal life. Because Bruce's dedication to being Batman meant virtually forsaking his personal life, by the time he reaches old age he has become a bitter and lonely old man. All of his friends and allies are either dead or have been so alienated by him that they want nothing more to do with him. Before Terry came along, his only source of companionship was a dog. Bruce's actions may have served a greater good, but this shows that being Batman does come at a price.

* DownerBeginning: The series begins with Bruce old and alone, sitting in his mansion with only his dog and his memories. His friends have either died (Alfred Pennyworth, Jim Gordon) or drifted away (Barbara Gordon is present but antagonistic, Tim Drake is absent at first and turns out later to have had a good reason to break off his acquaintance, and Dick Grayson remains absent throughout following a falling-out so terrible the details are never discussed). None of his love interests from the old series turned out well. He doesn't even have Batman any more, as he has a heart condition and his body is no longer reliable for sustained physical exertion.

The Gotham of the mid-twenty-first century has the look and feel of an archetypal CyberPunk setting, though some Noir remnants from the original series still show up. Gotham still has its old feel -- [[WretchedHive crowded, corrupt, and dirty as all hell]] -- but now some cars can fly, and that includes the Batmobile. Wayne-Powers Enterprises doesn't have the philanthropic ideals that existed when Bruce ran the company, and Derek Powers hates the interference in his less savory endeavours caused by the new Batman. His eventual transformation into the radioactive supervillain Blight (due to the actions of Batman) makes his hatred more personal.

* MadLove: Inque and a random sap named Aaron Herbst who supervised her while in prison. Aaron ends up requesting to be given shapeshifting powers like Inque, to which Inque responds by giving him only half the treatment, causing him to mutate into a liquedated, powerless blob, and in the end being on the receiving end of this trope.

*** Although Batman was a JerkWithAHeartOfGold for the majority of his career, it is revealed his lone and pragmatic attitude created a big rift between him and the rest of the Bat-family. Not to mentoin, being MarriedToTheJob, he never really developed any of the romantic relationships that the DCAU previously hinted at.

In the behind-the-scenes feature, Paul Dini and Bruce Timm say that they did have a psuedo-scientific explanation for how that happens. The explanation involved [[spoiler:the transplantation of Ra's al Ghul's vocal cords]], but they omitted it because it took too long and did not really fit with the episode.
