* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: It's all but stated outright that Batman only slept with Talia because she tricked him into drinking some sort of mind control potion, but Batman does admit that part wasn't so bad.

* NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization: It's all but stated outright that Batman only slept with Talia because she tricked him into drinking some sort of mind control potion, but Batman does admit that part wasn't so bad. This is different from the comic where Batman is reasonably outraged.


* AdaptationalJerkass: In the comics, Nightwing is open to Damian becoming Robin and gladly supports and guides him even before he got the mantle. Here he's a rather standoffish jerk who would prefer to avoid Damian if at all possible and is vehemently opposed to Damian becoming Robin. Damien didn't exactly make the best first impression, though, so his attitude is understandable.

* MusclesAreMeaningless: Ubu is a heavy construction vehicle in the form of a man. Damian is a preteen boy. Damien not only wins the fight, but is able to hold a blade lock with Ubu despite being maybe a quarter of his size. The same with Damian against Deathstroke, which would be amazing if Deathstroke had his enhancements (in the comics, both Damian and Deathstroke have enhanced strength, which isn't established here).

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: The Man-Bats don't seem to be covered by the ThouShaltNotKill rule. Batman takes no issue with Damien using a sword on them, and he himself crushes many of them with falling debris set off by explosives.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Talia al Ghul, who fits more in her traditional AntiVillain NobleDemon's role than the outright villainy she was portrayed as in [[Comicbook/GrantMorrisonsBatman Morrison's run]] in Batman's titles; she was the BigBad of this arc in particular.

* IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Damian Wayne outright rejects this philosophy when Bruce tells him. He belives it doesn't make you ''like'' them, it makes you ''better'' than them. [[spoiler:However, he does later decide that killing people isn't the way, though he never explicitly states that he now believes that killing him would make him just as bad.]]

* AdaptationalVillainy:
** Ubu, who is usually portrayed as a loyal servant to Ra's al Ghul, here betrays him and works with Deathstroke. We never find out why. Then again, as there have been multiple Ubus, maybe it's just one who isn't loyal.[[note]]In the comics, Bane once served as Ubu for a while, and ''he'' was definitely [[DragonWithAnAgenda looking to bump Ra's off]].[[/note]]

* Ms. Fanservice: Talia al Ghul fits this role perfectly, her normal attire is a SpyCatsuit which shows off her well endowed cleavage, curves and voluptuous but well toned figure. After saving Batman from Killer Croc, she is seen in a lovely red dress with an AbsoluteCleavage to boot.
