Tropes for The Batman.
- Abusive Parents - Tommy's parents. At first, it was just his dad, but it's revealed later on that Tommy's mother isn't any better.
- Arc Words - We all wear masks.
- Chekov's Gun - The reverse batarang.
- Dirty Cop: The entire GCPD excluding Gordon, Driver, Allen, Montoya and Essen.
- EMP - One of Batman's gadgets is a portable EMP device that actually works in terms of realism, so it doesn't fall under the Artistic License - Physics trope.
- Face Heel Turn - Roman and Tommy. Both have pretty good reasons to have Face Heel Turns, too.
- Grappling-Hook Pistol - Another one of Batman's wonderful toys.
- Mob War - It's implied that the False Facers' main objective is to start a massive one that will make them the dominant crime faction in Gotham.
- Thematic Rogues Gallery - Bruce, Tommy and Roman have three things in common: they all were born into wealth, have revenge as their motivations and on top of that, they all wear masks.
- Thou Shalt Not Kill - Rule one of the "Batman Creed".
- Unable to Cry - Bruce after the revelation.
