YMMV: Batman Odyssey
  • Accidental Innuendo: There's a few, most notably this panel, and Sensei's strangely erotic play-by-play of unlocking a door while sweat pours down his face..
    Sensei: Ahh. The blood flows outward and back again. Each element to each element binding. Dis-weighting... Lubricating... Feel... Feel... Feel... Tiny offset crystal borrowing lubrication... Now I can "see". Deeper inside. Aha. The tumblers are mis-balanced. Just so much. Each molecule... adds... and adds, apply pressure, up, then down, and down again. Now. Umphhh. Ah. Slowly... slowly...
  • Bizarro Episode: The whole comic is one Big Lipped Alligator Moment for the entire Batman canon.
  • Cool but Stupid: Very stupid.
  • Crazy Awesome: The whole comic, but the two page of Batman fighting a T. rex, while riding a giant bat deserves special mention.
  • Faux Symbolism: Finally, Naked Bruce Wayne puts on a shirt. It's a Green Lantern shirt. There is no immediately evident meaning to this.
    • Another example is in the Joker's introductory scene: at one point he stands in front of a poster for The Man Who Laughs, the original inspiration for the character.
  • Foe Yay: Apparently Ubu fantasizes about Batman punching him in the abs.
  • Ho Yay: Robin and Deadman have a bit of this, as do Batman and Ubu (See Foe Yay below).
  • Narm: Where to even start?
    • Bruce Wayne and Robin's reactions to the revelation that Robin's parents were killed by the League of Assassins are both pretty spectacular.
  • Signature Scene: Batman blowing up Robin. A perfect symbol of how batshit insane this comic is.
  • So Bad, It's Good
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Seriously, the dialogue sounds too bizarre to make any damn sense.
