But when he comes back later with Talia, and she takes over Abush's kingdom, she ''does'' have the maids bathe the [[UndressingTheUnconscious unconscious Damian]], and he's [[NakedFreakOut quite embarrassed when he wakes up in the middle of the bath]], mostly due to thinking he's too old for his mom to see him naked.
* BigBad: Den Darga, TheLeader of the Lu'un Darga, an ancient family of immortals that serve as guardians of the Lazarus Pit, and want to cleanse all life on Earth to prevent humans from abusing the Pits.

to:

* ContinuityNod: CallingParentsByTheirName: In {{flashback}}s Damian calls his mother "Talia" when he's feeling particularly smug, which upsets her.

%%* EvilMatriarch: Talia al Ghul is one for Damian.
conflict comes from her InUniverse crossing the MoralEventHorizon in ''ComicBook/BatmanGrantMorrison'' when [[OffingTheOffspring she had Damian killed]]. When he questions why she did it, she explains she was afflicted by some kind of SanitySlippage before and that she got cured of it when she came BackFromTheDead, implying it was the {{Brainwashing}} she suffered under Nyssa's hand in ''Death and the Maidens'', which caused her to have a FaceHeelTurn.
* CoolPet: Damian's, Goliath, Damian's giant furry red pet dragon-bat whom he adopted during his trial in the ''Year of Blood''
* CPRCleanPrettyReliable: Maya performs CPR on Damian after he almost drowns in Issue #5, with no complications.
* CrimefightingWithCash: When Deathstroke goes after Maya due to a contract he had on her father, Damian resolves the situation by just paying him, and he [[OnlyInItForTheMoney gladly leaves them alone after being paid]].
* DeathIsCheap: When Maya informs Damian about Batman's apparent death in ''ComicBook/BatmanTomKing'', Damian just shrugs it of, saying even if it's true it likely won't last, pointing out he himself came BackFromTheDead not long ago.
* DestructiveSaviour: Damian and Goliath almost wreck the town they're trying to save, requiring the invisible Maya to actually interfere to rescue some of the endangered civilians.

%%* * HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:The Sons of Batman (deformed bastardized humongoloid clones of Damian) give up their lives to save him, Maya, Talia, and Goliath in Issue #5.]]
* InvisibilityCloak: Maya inherited her father's cloaking device, allowing her to [[{{Invisibility}} turn invisible]] in any environment.
* LastOfHisKind: Goliath is the last of the dragon-bats, after Damian killed the rest of them in the Year of Blood to get the artifact they were guarding. Damian didn't have the heart to kill the baby Goliath and adopted him instead.
*
LegacyCharacter: Robin.[[spoiler:..Maya takes up her father's mantle as Nobody II, and Nobody.]]doubles as a RedeemingReplacement, since while she has a bone to pick with Damian about his actions, she's ultimately a good person and becomes his ally.
* LickedByTheDog: In a {{flashback}} to how Damian met Goliath, Damian breaks down to tears when the baby Goliath licks it, even after Damian has killed all the other man-bats.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: Talia and Bruce constantly bicker even as they're in a BackToBackBadasses position fighting alongside each other.
* LivingDinosaurs: The last of the Artifacts from the Year of Blood is on the appropriately called Dinosaur Island, where real living dinosaurs still exist. Ironically, they don't really feature much and the heroes mostly fight the Lu'un Darga's forces in there.
* MamaBear: Talia's entire motivation in the story is to keep Damian safe from the Lu'un Darga, to the point she even captures and restrains Maya when she suspects she's an agent of theirs.
* MoralityPet: Goliath for Damian and Maya, to they both stop fighting when they notice Goliath is hurt.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny:
** Most of The Sons of Batman wander around Al Ghul Island [[HomeNudist au naturel]], which is PlayedForLaughs when Maya finds them for the first time, and asks Damian to [[PleasePutSomeClothesOn give them all pants]].
** Damian's embarrassment at being bathed in front of his mother is played for humor.
* NightmareSequence: Damian has one in the first issue, with Bruce and Dick accusing him of belonging in hell, then the Heretic kills both and Talia shows up to drag Damian to hell, where a Satanic Ra's Al Ghul awaits.
* NotSoDifferentRemark: Damian notices how Suren Darga was just raised as a puppet for his father Den Darga, the same way Damian himself was for ComicBook/RasAlGhul.
-->'''Damian:''' Suren Darga, I am not so different from you!
* OverlordJr: Suren Darga, is a miniature copy of his BigBad father Den Darga.
* PlayingPossum: Maya plays dead after getting shot by a Lu'un Darga poisoned arrow. The poison ''should'' have killed her, but Talia immunized her when she captured her.
* RedemptionQuest: The entire story is about Damian going on a worldwide trip to atone for the things he done in the Year of Blood.
* RightBehindMe: In a {{flashback}}, one of Damian's servants complains about him and Ra just as two League of Assassin {{Ninja}}s hid behind him. [[ScreamDiscretionShot We only hear his screams, after]].
* RightfulKingReturns: PlayedWith. Abbush is actually merely a prince of Bialya, posing a king, as the real ruler must be the one who comes back with the sacred relic, the scepter of kings, which just so happens to be one of the artifacts of the Year of Blood. Talia makes use of it to usurp Abush's throne and become Bialya's ruler, even though she had no claim to the throne other than possession of the scepter. It's implied people accept it because of [[AdiposeRex how bad Abbush was as a ruler]].
* SealedEvilinACan: The Lu'un Darga were sealed with the artifacts Damian gathered during the Year of Blood, and he [[NiceJobBreakingItHero unknowingly sets them free]] during his RedemptionQuest.



* SinsOfOurFathers: Deathstroke contract to kill Nobody passes to Maya due to her father's death.
* SwallowedWhole: [[spoiler:Many of the Sons of Batman get swallowed whole by the Lu'un Darga worm monsters during their HeroicSacrifice.]]



** In the first issue, [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/40/4629929-rbsobm_1_4.jpg Damian clobbers Abush, knocking most of his teeth out.]]

to:

** In the first issue, Issue #1, [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/0/40/4629929-rbsobm_1_4.jpg Damian clobbers Abush, knocking most of his teeth out.]]]]
** This gets repeated in Issue #6, this time with Talia clobbering Abush, knocking out his remaining teeth.


Added DiffLines:

* TeamPet: Goliath is this to Damian and Maya during their adventure.
* TerrifyingRescuer: Some people get even more scared when they end up being rescued by Maya while she's completely invisible.
* TookALevelInKindness: Talia is portrayed as a far kinder mother than she was during her EvilMatriarch depictions in ''ComicBook/BatmanGrantMorrison''. {{Justified|Trope}} in the present, since she says when she got BackFromTheDead, she was cured of the "[[SanitySlippage madness]]" that was affecting her, hinting at the {{brainwashing}} she suffered at Nyssa's hands in ''Death and the Maidens''. But even in {{flashback}}s to Damian's childhood she's still portrayed as a [[ToughLove demanding but loving mother]], and not someone who just sees Damian as a weapon or asset.
* VisibleInvisibility: Maya is invisible to the characters, but the viewers always gets to see where she is via her outline.
