Recap: Batman: The Animated Series E35 "Night of the Ninja"
aka: Batman The Animated Series Night Of The Ninja


  • Always Someone Better: After Kyodai taunts Bruce about being a pampered rich boy, the sensei tells Kyodai there is always someone better and proceeds to kick his ass.
  • Cover-Blowing Superpower: Bruce Wayne has to try and avoid this, holding back in a fight against the Ninja (who knows he's Batman) in front of Summer Gleason (who doesn't). She knows that he has some fighting skill, but doesn't want to give himself away by showing too much skill.
  • Fighting Fingerprint: Kyodai is able to discover Batman's secret identity by watching him fight.
  • Hand Seals: Kyodai Ken frequently uses this.
  • Martial Arts Uniform
  • Metaphorically True: Bruce explains to fellow prisoner Summer that they escaped because Batman arrived and took down the bad guy. Hey, his voice changed so it was mostly true...
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Robin calls himself out on this after accidentally tripping an alarm. "Way to go, master crime fighter."
  • Ninja: Kyodai Ken
  • Non-Answer: When Batman tells Robin that Kyotai is "good" at the martial arts, Robin asks how good he is. Batman reiterates, "Good." (Translation: "Better than me.")
  • Tattooed Crook: The ninja thief Kyodai-Ken has a huge tattoo of a Japanese demon's head on his back.
  • This Is Reality: The title Ninja makes it clear to Dick Grayson that "This isn't the movies, boy!"
