Added DiffLines:

** Lower key example but he clearly doesn't want Wally/Kid Flash anywhere near the search for Joker and is gentle when the young speedster is distraught over what happened to Dick.



* SirSwearsALot: Bruce is quite disgruntled about Jason's tendence to turn the air blue when he opens his mouth, mainly because he does it in front of young Dick.

* GoodParents: Justice!Bruce, something which very much startles Jason since Hood!Bruce was more ParentsAsPeople.



* PapaWolf: Don't you dare to touch Bruce Wayne's kid. He's the Batman and not afraid to break some of your bones.



* Jason naturally disbelieves Robin when the kid declares he's Dick Grayson, claiming that Dick is five years older than him.

* HaveWeMet: Red Hood can't help but think the "new" Robin looks weirdly familiar...



* HistoryRepeats: Jason's biggest fear is another Robin getting hurt or worse, just like he was.
* LighterAndSofter: Justice!Gotham is much cleaner and respectable than Hood!Gotham. Jason also mentions his Earth doesn't have a Justice League.



* ThePollyanna: Dick Grayson strives to see the good things in life. His Hood!Earth counterpart seems to be just as cheerful and peppy.

Added DiffLines:

* MyBelovedSmother: After almost losing Dick in ''Volatile'', Batman decides to bench Robin and ensures Gotham won't be too dangerous right before letting him back in the streets. Robin doesn't appreciate being coddled.


Added DiffLines:

* ScarsAreForever: A plot point in ''Scars'', since explaining the marks left upon Robin by Joker is quite the complication, especially when Dick is out of costume. It also brings his self-esteem down. Fortunately, a phial of Lazarus water solves the question.


Added DiffLines:

* TakeThat: Young Dick is left howling from outrage when Jason describes his own Robin suit - the one with scaly panties and pixie boots.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: Even when refusing to take the whole "beaten-up and blown to kingdom come" stick, Jason's life wasn't the greatest. Especially when he was in the streets.
* DistressedDude: Seriously, Robin ought to consider to relinquish the title of "Boy Wonder" and replace it by "Boy Hostage".



* GoodIsNotNice: Jason ''wants'' to do good. To this end, he's ready to shoot criminals and dangle bullies out of a window. Very much Batman's influence there...
* HeelRealization: When young Dick almost dies because of Joker, Jason suddenly understands how ''bad'' his Bruce suffered when he was unable to save him.

* TakeAThirdOption: When a thug learns Robin's civilian identity, he gloats about how he's going to blackmail Batman under pain to make the kid a target for Gotham's crooks. Jason made him shut up by pointing the thug's death would prevent all of this.


** ''Scars'': Dick is very much in a funk due to the scars Joker left upon him and no one amongst the Batfam is able to truly comfort him.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Jason is hellishly protective towards young Dick. Even before getting to know him in his civvies, he only wanted to "save" the youth from the Robin legacy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Jason has two of these.
** When he abducts Dick, he's very genial and reassuring while trying to persuade the kid to stop being Robin, which leaves the boy confused but not feeling threatened.
** Batman heavily mistrusts Red Hood until he witnesses the other vigilante willingly throw himself between Robin and danger.
* NeverTheSelvesShallMeet: Any reality is unable to stand such a situation without growing unstable. Jason is able to stay in the Justice!Earth only because his counterpart accidentally OD'ed at five-years-old.
* SirSwearALot: Bruce is quite disgruntled about Jason's tendence to turn the air blue when he opens his mouth, mainly because he does it in front of young Dick.
* WouldHurtAChild: Hood!Earth-Joker is downright gleeful when he has the opportunity to revisit the torture he inflicted to Jason upon a thirteen-years-old Dick.
* YouKnowWhatYouDid: Batman is much confused in his first interaction with Red Hood since Jason is unaware about crossing realities and rams the man he believes to be his mentor up for things he didn't do.

The story mainly focuses on Batman and Robin dealing with the sudden arrival of a new vigilante in Gotham: not only Red Hood is quite violent, he also displays uncanny knowledge about the Bats...

Problem is, Batman and Robin have ''no idea'' whatsoever of how he managed to be so well-informed. Who the frack is Jason Todd, anyways?
