** Similarly Wonder Woman's insanely out-of-character behavior has caused some to declare that she's actually [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall a deranged mental patient named Bonkers Betty who's stolen a Wonder Woman costume from a convention and is impersonating her.]]

** Neo-Nazi woman with swastika pasties standing guard outside a motel door. It's ''supposed'' to be a ContinuityNod to an extra that appeared in ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns'' but ... Yeah, it's just too weird to work.

Added DiffLines:

*** This is acknowledged in the comic itself. Dick mentions how Batman taught him that a hood would limit his line of sight. But Damian proves that, having been trained from a far younger age than Dick, he can fight perfectly fine with the hood.

* TheyJustDidntCare: Frank Miller has become so obsessed with making Batman "better" than the police or any other superhero, that he's stopped caring about making Batman actually do anything [[DesignatedHero heroic]].
** During the story, 12 year old Dick Grayson's, age twelve, face is on a Milk Carton... While he's ''still being driven to the Batcave'', meaning that either the trip takes several days, or Batman's car drove into a time warp.
** The Batcave has a wall of weapons that Batman in any normal story would never use, including guns in it. That's all.
*** The axe that [[RunningGag Dick Grayson Age 12]] picks up has a blade shaped like Batman's logo. This means that it wasn't just seized from another criminal or even bought off the shelf, ''Batman had it custom made.''
** Other superheroes such as Black Canary, Plastic Man, and Wonder Woman appear in the comic, and Frank Miller writes them all as psychotic murderers with no regard for who their mainstream counterparts are.

* DesignatedHero: Batman. He's psychotic, unstable, and an-all round {{Jerkass}}. He kidnaps the twelve year old Dick Grayson, age twelve, forces him to live in the Batcave alone (and expects him to hunt the rats and bats in there for food), and then complains about having him around and physically assaults him. And he goes out on patrol laughing about how awesome he is as he gleefully poisons criminals, sets them on fire, and attacks police officers; while it isn't outright stated, FridgeHorror implies many of them don't survive. For some reason, readers are supposed to like him.

** When Dick Grayson, age twelve, is huddling alone in the Batcave, his shadow cast on the floor forms an "R." In case one of the five people in the world who ''don't'' know that Dick becomes Robin picks up the comic and wonders who the kid is.

* ArcFatigue: With [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters all the characters]], sideplots that may or may not have anything to do with the narrative, confusing time frame, and [[ScheduleSlip fairly bad schedule]], it took a while for Dick Grayson, age 12, to even ''become'' Robin.

** Hal Jordan, for calling out Batman on his terrible treatment of Dick Grayson, age 12, and being pretty much the only hero that doesn't do or say anything stupid or offensive. Ironic given Frank's opinion of him.

** When 12-year-old Dick Grayson, age 12, initially creates his costume with a hood, Batman cynically tells him to drop it, since according to him, this would be impractical in a fight. Flash-forward to Creator/GrantMorrison's run, when Damian Wayne becomes the new Robin. His costume includes a hood. Linkara has theorized Morrison might have done this on purpose as a TakeThat to this comic.
