Scarecrow has developed a new toxin that, rather than cause fear, takes it away completely. Batman gets infected and Robin has to stop him from breaking his no-killing rule.
* BatmanGambit: Batman uses it to get Robin to let him go, but Robin [[SubvertedTrope realizes at the last second that it's a trick]].
* FearlessFool: [[NightmareFuel The Scarecrow]] creates a toxin that ''removes'' Batman's fears and inhibitions, making him much more reckless than usual--and it doesn't stop there. The writers are savvy enough to even make him more heartless, as he doesn't fear what his own reaction will be if, say, Robin gets killed or if he breaks his one rule and murders a criminal. Scarecrow is making a point that fear is ''necessary'', not just useful, and then in his usual mad fashion extends that to mean that ''he'' is necessary to have around.
* ForcefulKiss: Seymour Gray, the quiet mousey guy who has not spoken up in his eighteen years at Wayne Enterprises, grabs and kisses Sarah, Bruce Wayne's secretary, after barging into Bruce's office, shouting out his ideas and then loudly quitting the company.
