Drinking Game: Batman
Drinking game for Batman:

  • Every time Batman mentions his parents' death, drink!
  • Every time Batman punches someone, drink!note  If he punches an ally, take two.
  • Every time he says "I'm Batman" or a criminal says "It's tha Batman!", drink! (This one should work for a few mediums. NOTE: Don't try the former if you're reading Shortpacked!. You'll wind up dead).
  • Take a shot each time there is a blatant ass shot, take two if it's a guy, take three if it's Nightwing.note 
  • For the original Batman series a'la Adam West:
    • Take a sip anytime "bat" is said, in any context.
      • Down a flask if its an actual bat.
    • Take two every time Chief O'Hara says something sterotypically Scottish/Irish.
    • Finish the drink anytime Robin says "Holy (blank)!"
  • Drink half a bottle whenever Batman smiles in any Batman animated show. You'll never wind up drinking more than 2.
    • This rule was definitely here before the premiere of Batman: The Brave and The Bold.
    • Drink when Batman is in full outfit but speaks in Bruce Wayne's voice (or vice versa) for plot reasons.
    • Take a sip every time poison/toxic/knockout gas, or any derivatives therein, is used for anything. Seriously, this happens a lot in Batman: The Animated Series.
  • Every time The Joker initiates some Foe Yay with Batman or calls him by an affectionate nickname take a drink.
  • Every time Jason's case appears in a dramatic moment, take a sip. Take a gulp if it's smashed in a fight.
  • Every time Jason mentions hating Batman, the Joker, or their responsibility for his death, drink.
  • Every time there is Batdickery, drink.
  • Every time Batman tells another hero to get out of Gotham, drink.
  • Every time someone disappears midsentence, drink.
  • Every time the interchangeable love interest gets entangled in the current case, drink.
    • Finish the bottle if it is a plucky reporter or the love interest is the villain.
  • Every time the Joker kills someone, drink.note 
  • Every time Two-Face flips his coin, drink. Take two drinks if it lands on heads.
  • Every time Ra's al Ghul takes a dip in a Lazarus pit, drink.
  • Every time the Penguin uses a weaponized umbrella, drink.
  • Every time the Batsignal appears, drink.

Here is an old one from Angelfire, which is remarkably comprehensive:

Rules and whatnot: This drinking game is based on the 1960's Batman TV show starring Adam West and Burt Ward. The rules are simple. Simply use your favorite alcoholic beverage and take drinks accordingly. Whoever is the most sober by the end wins. That is, if anyone cares about winning by that point. If you're playing this with non-alcoholic drinks (though since it's a drinking game, I don't know why you would be) then the last person who has to run to the bathroom wins.

Special Note: If the director of the episode is listed as "george waGGner" ignore the rules and just drink. Constantly. Trust me, you'll be much happier that way.
