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.
