Added DiffLines:

* DubNameChange: Like usual on the Venezuelan dub, Dick Grayson name was changed to Ricardo Tapia. Nightwing was changed to Ala Nocturna (Nocturnal Wing) [[InconsistentDub in some episodes]], a faithful translation.

Added DiffLines:

* AgeLift: In the comics before ''B: TAS'' and an area where ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOBatmanMovie'' was TruerToTheText, Barbara was a full-grown adult when she became Batgirl--which was while Dick was a still a teenager. It was here where they started to be depicted as around the same age, an element got RetCanon to the comics.


* AbusiveParents: Before he became Robin, his father worked for Two-Face and often left his son (who was under 13 years old) alone to fend for himself for long periods of time. When he double-crossed Two-Face, he abandoned his son to run away, only to be found killed outside of Gotham.

* ArtEvolution: He has received a redesign in the revamped forth season of ''Batman: TAS'' (also known as ''The New Batman Adventures'') due to the fact that he adopted the identity of Nightwing through the fact that his build became sleeker along with the fact that he has broader shoulders, which showcased his emergence as a mature hero in his own right, and that the short spiky hair that he wore as Robin had grown longer in addition to being styled to flow down the back of the neck (which he wore it in a ponytail as a civilian).

Added DiffLines:

* RebuiltPedestal: Started to view Batman negatively after watching him interrogate the Joker's hired goon in front of the man's wife and young son. When he found out that Bruce Wayne hired the man as a security guard and regularly inquires about his family, he remembered that Batman really is a good person underneath the gruffness. Even though they never regained their prior level of closeness, they get along well enough and are able to work together again.


* AwLookTheyReallyDoLoveEachOther: He and Batgirl show this in the end of "You Scratch My Back". But sadly, [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond they never got back together]].
-->'''Batgirl''': You alright?
-->'''Nightwing''': You know me, always happy to have a little help.

* BrokenPedestal: Unlike in the comics, Dick and Bruce never truly reconcile after their falling out onscreen(though offscreen, they seemed to make amends in "Old Wounds"). Though ''Batman and Harley Quinn'' seems to rectify this, as the two work together quite well with no signs of TeethClenchedTeamwork between the two.

* ChainedToABed: In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAndHarleyQuinn''. Harley captures Nightwing and duct-tapes him to her bed, since she's decided to go straight and so can't just kill him. On seeing Nightwing has become... [[RagingStiffie aroused]] at seeing her strip down to her underwear, she decides to [[FoeYay take advantage of the situation]]. Batman is not amused when he turns up.

* DefiantCaptive: The ''[=SubZero=]''. The highlight of it all is when Belson unlocks the chain binding her, she ''immediately starts swinging it at him.''
* DistaffCounterpart: At first glance one to Batman, but realistically more of one to Robin, as she's a female sidekick of Batman, rather than a female version of him.
