Added DiffLines:

* WitchSpecies: Wizardkind and Homo Magi.

Added DiffLines:

* NomDeMom: Harry ponders a bit over his nomenclature, since he can choose between ''Evans'', ''Isley'', ''Potter'' and ''Wayne''. The Wizarding World knows him as Harry Potter (of course) but his main civilian identity is Hawthorne Isley.


Added DiffLines:

** When Bruce contacts Giovanni Zatara to ask him about Dumbledore and the British Wizarding World, the magician is unable to give him info because he doesn't know Dumbledore and never went to Britain.

Added DiffLines:

* SeenItAll: Bruce takes his birth son being a wizard in stride, pointing they live in a world in which an alien can lift a skyscraper above his head and a bat-costumed vigilante prowls the streets, so what's a supplementary bit of weirdness, huh?


** He also considers a link to the Green falls into the category, since he and his mom can ''hear'' plant-life crying for help. Constantly.

* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: Harley is the ''only'' one who likes the Joker. Even the other Rogues in Gotham cannot stand him.

* PoisonousPerson: Harry's skin secretes a toxin strong enough to knock out people. He has no control over the ability.
* RealityEnsues:
** After his blood relation to Bruce Wayne is established, Harry openly doubts of the possibility he will inherit his sire's fortune since he's a villain in training, and illegitimate to boot.
** After bringing Harry to Wayne Manor, Bruce presses for another DNA test. He ''is'' a billionaire who already had to face paternity suits, and a villain could falsely claim a relation to get a hold of his money.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentsAsPeople: The high and mighty Batman mentally recognizes he's constantly making up on the fly when he deals with the pressures of being a dad to Dick, and he's extremely thankful for Alfred. TheReveal that he has a biological son utterly terrifies him, and that's without the added pressure of his villainous impulses. Still, Batman being Batman means he soldiers on - and he's not floundering too much.
* RebuiltPedestal: Harry starts dismayed to learn his father is the vapid, foppish Bruce Wayne. He revises his opinion when Bruce genuinely makes the effort to get to know him.

Added DiffLines:

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/13003733/1/Deadly-Nightshade Deadly Nightshade]]'' is a crossover fanfic between ''Literature/HarryPotter'' and the Franchise/{{Batman}} elements from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', by savya398.

Petunia decides she shouldn't have to raise her nephew when his mother is perfectly capable of doing it herself. No, not Lily, the ''other'' one. The one who lives in Gotham and enjoys attacking people with giant plants.

Now, Batman and Robin have to deal with this brand-new villain-in-waiting.

!Tropes you can find in this story:

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: Ivy and Harry are green-skinned, with purple freckles for the kid.
* EntertaininglyWrong: Harry is quite surprised to learn that Gotham considers him another experimental man-plant hybrid created by Ivy.
* LukeYouAreMyFather: Batman is certainly thrown for a loop when he learns Ivy wanted Bruce Wayne's DNA to confirm he fathered her son.
* TeacherStudentRomance: When Ivy tries to remember who Harry's dad is, she points her former professor Jason Woodrue as a candidate.
