Batman taunts [[spoiler: Dick Grayson]] with homophobic slurs in their final battle.



* The fact that Miller seems to imply Superman should be a world conqueror that rejects his "human" side to act as a PhysicalGod is ''really'' unsettling as a concept.
%%*** Batman actually ridicules Superman for ''not'' using his powers to sovereign the earth.
%%*** This despite an InternalMonologue mocking Superman for thinking he was better than everyone else in ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns.

* JerkSue: Batman. He's a total {{Jerkass}}, and anybody that calls him out for it or the things listed under DesignatedHero are treated as idiots.

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Batman bringing up that [[spoiler: Dick Grayson being]] the New Joker was the result of a long series of experiments on him by "your masters" (Luthor and Braniac). So perhaps all his taunts about [[spoiler: having "fired" Dick]], let alone his rant about it being due to [[spoiler: Dick]] being a "sissy" DirtyCoward, were just to make New Joker mad so as to catch him off guard, as Bruce understood that [[spoiler: the long-brainwashed Dick is sadly beyond saving at this point.]] FridgeBrilliance and AlasPoorVillain all rolled into one.

%%* UnfortunateImplications: Batman taunts [[spoiler: Dick Grayson]] with homophobic slurs in their final battle.
%%** Franchise/WonderWoman's line about Superman "throwing her down" and "claiming" her has more than a few overtones of [[SexEqualsLove Rape Is Love]] too.

* VillainDecay: Played with. It's not Luthor's best showing, and Miller lets you know why: Luthor--his look, his views and his motivations--is little more than an ObviouslyEvil, unhinged, trollish, rage-filled thug in a business suit threatening the world to give him what he wants ([[FridgeBrilliance which is precisely what Luthor's always been; here you just get to see its unvarnished form]]). And yet, its fairly cool to imagine that this is the man, or kind of man, that at the end of DKR Batman calls "worse than thieves and murderers."

* ShockingSwerve: Infamously, [[spoiler: the Joker's identity as Dick Grayson comes out of nowhere and the book does very little to explain how it actually happened.]]

** When [[spoiler: Dick plunges to his death as a result of Batcave's destruction]], Bruce seems to have something of a solenm or possibly sadden expression before saying [[spoiler: "Farewell, Boy Wonder."]] It even looks like his eye was wet for a moment. This seems to he regreted his past behavior and what it drove [[spoiler: Dick]] to do.
