** The Batman of Zur-En-Arrh. Literally, as he's become quite insane at this point. Dresses in a bright red, yellow, and purple costume meant to display how he's even more confident, kicks all kinds of ass with nothing but a baseball bat and some garbage he uses for batarangs(a tin can lid and a wreath are seen in one page) and spouts such lines as "I am the Batman of ZUR-EN-ARRH!"(Uh-oh.) and "You can't fool the Bat-Radia, it sees through your lies!" To top it off, he's followed around by Bat-Mite who may or may not be a figment of his imagination, and converses with gargoyles while planning his attack.

* JerkSue: Much debate exists within the Bat-Fandom over whether Damian Wayne is a {{Deconstruction}} of one of these or one played very straight. He tends to get away with pulling a lot of shit that few others would get away with, but at the same time it's made very clear that no one really likes him that much.



* MartyStu:
** Again, debate rages over how true this is, but it is undeniable that Damian Wayne, at his first appearance, was the {{Scrappy}} and was even called CousinOliver in Red Robin #14.
** Batman[=/=]Bruce Wayne himself has been accused of this during Morrison's run.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: SubvertedTrope InUniverse. Turns out that a good chunk of what happened to Batman in the SilverAge was because he ''was'' on drugs. Joker toxin, Scarecrow fear gas, and total isolation for a week to be exact. (And that's not even mentioning Creator/GrantMorrison's notorious habits...)

** And that's ignoring the fact that, in this continuity, she date-raped Batman to make Damian in the first place.

* CharacterRerailment: After several notoriously awful attempts to shoehorn Red Hood into the DCU (such as ComicBook/CountdownToFinalCrisis and the Nightwing "One Year Later" storyline), Morrison's run on Batman and Robin returned him back to relevancy as a psychotic villain and a dark reflection of Batman. However, it didn't last, as the New 52 reverted him back to an angsty teenage rebel.
