* PoliceAreUseless: Inverted twice in "Eyewitness" when Terry butts in and screws up police stings, thenfinds himself up against the full, CrazyPrepared might of Barbara Gordon's police force. It's made quite obvious that Terry's WouldNotShootAGoodGuy mindset is ''not'' the only reason that it's one of the toughest battles of the series for him.

* PoliceAreUseless: PoliceAreUseless:
** Invoked in the two-part premiere when Bruce refuses to get involved and tells him to take his evidence to Commissioner Barbara Gordon. Terry objects that the cops won't be able to do anything (presumably because Powers is [[ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney too powerful to touch]]).

* {{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.
