* {{Narm}}: The name "Red Robin". Yes, it's a ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' ShoutOut... but it's also the name of a burger restaurant chain with a memorable ad campaign ("Reeeed Rooobin... yum!").

to:

* HoYay: With [[ComicBook/{{Superboy}} Conner Kent]] for decades, starting in ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' when they were the mommy and the daddy of the team (Tim was the mommy). It got really weird when Conner died during ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'', not only did Tim start dating Conner girlfriend Wonder Girl, but he tried to clone Conner. When Conner came back on his, not only did Tim give Conner a big hug and look happier than he had in years, but later on Conner said Tim would always be his Robin and Tim said Conner would always be his clone boy.
* HilariousInHindsight: In his first appearance Anarky had a copy on ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' on his shelf. This was years before the movie came out and the whole Anonymous-Guy Fawkes mask-"We are legion" internet movement.
* IronWoobie: Tim arguably has had the hardest life out of all the Robins. Sure Jason Todd died, but after Tim met Batman: his mother was killed (which Batman tried and failed to stop), his father was paralyzed, [[ComicBook/BatmanWarGames his girlfriend was killed]] ([[ComicBookDeath she got better but still]]), [[ComicBook/IdentityCrisis his father was killed]], [[ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis his best friend was killed]] ([[ComicBookDeath he got better but still]]), [[ComicBook/FinalCrisis and his stepdad was killed]] ([[ComicBookDeath he got better but still]]). It's no wonder he can be a little moody at times.
* {{Narm}}: The name "Red Robin". Yes, it's a ''ComicBook/KingdomCome'' ShoutOut... but it's also the name of a burger restaurant chain with a memorable ad campaign ("Reeeed Rooobin... yum!").yum!").
* ShipToShipCombat: Tim/Stephanie Brown fans versus Tim/Cassandra Cain fans versus Tim/Conner Kent fans.

* BrokenBase: For Tim's Red Robin look: Condom head vs. Swan queen. Some feel the condom head look works because it takes inspiration from Batman and is just more practical, which reflects Tim's character. The swan queen look is liked for having some practicality in the cape. While nobody will say either is an amazing costume design, which one is better is up in the air.

Added DiffLines:

* CompleteMonster: Vitoria, alias The Wanderer, from ''Red Robin'', was born in Brazil. As a young girl, she was abused by the men in the village. One day, while running from the men, she fell into a pit of venomous spiders. However, instead of dying, she gained the power to kill with a touch. After killing the men (which was justified), Vitoria murdered her mother, then went on a [[SerialKiller killing spree]] across South America, slaughtering people at random. When she grew bored with this, she recruited a band of likeminded [[PsychoForHire Psychos For Hire]], which she names the Council of Spiders, and attacked the League of Assassins for [[HuntingTheMostDangerousGame sport]], butchering dozens of its members in the process, and caring not a whit for any innocents who got in the way. BuriedAlive after her plot failed, Vitoria [[UngratefulBastard killed the man who rescued her]], before announcing her intention of moving on from targeting assassins to targeting heroes.

Added DiffLines:

*AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Tim's indifference to relationships, as well as him never falling for the HoneyPot has created a theory that he is the DC universe's first [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asexuality Asexual]] character.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Tim's first fight with King Snake in his first miniseries.
** Tim defeating Lady Shiva in their fight before it even began by poisoning her chocolates.
** Tim as the only member of the Batfamily to believe that Bruce survived the Omega Sanction. His faith actually caught Ra's Al Ghul's attention, which led to Tim and he pulling an EnemyMine on a nasty group of Spider themed bad guys before Tim is put through one of Ra's's SecretTestsOfCharacter. He passes.
*** He becomes the only other person besides Batman himself to earn the title of "Detective" from Ra's al Ghul.
