Batman's minifigure comes in several different colour variations to reflect his appearances in different continuities. His Comic Suit resembles his outfit in most of his modern appearances, his Classic Blue Suit is based on his appearances in Silver Age comics, and his Armoured Suit is made to resemble his costume in The Dark Knight Trilogy. All Batman suits released before 2011 use the same face; a Light Nougat head with a frown and a White headband. All variations at least use the same Cowl and Cape pieces, but the colour may differ between variations. In 2013, a new cowl was introduced, being a more rounded version and resembling The Dark Knight version. In 2015 another version of the cowl will be released, a shorter one with shorter ears and no chin strap and is based on his New 52 cowl.

In LEGO Dimensions
In the game LEGO Dimensions, Batman appears in the game's starter pack, 71174 Starter Pack. He appears with his New 52 torso and legs and old hood, and wields Batarangs.
When a young Bruce Wayne witnessed his socialite parents shot dead by the mugger Joe Chill, he vowed to bring justice to the criminals infesting Gotham City. He then trained himself in detective skills, sciences, engineering, escape artistry, martial arts, and criminal psychology. But Bruce realized that those skills would not be enough to stop the large, cowardly lot plaguing the streets. While he was in his study reflecting on his parents' deaths, a bat flew into the window, both startling and inspiring him at the same time. He would become the Bat to strike fear in those who preyed upon the innocent. And so, Bruce then took his mantle as a crime fighter and became known as Batman.
At first, Batman fought "plain-clothes" villains without any super powers or gimmicks until about six months into his career when he encountered Mr. Freeze, a scientist specializing in cryogenics-turned villain trying to rescue his dying wife. Batman's rogues gallery expanded to include other villains, many of which are insane, such as Bruce Wayne's former best friend, the hideously scarred Two-Face, The Riddler who challenges Batman's intellect rather than his strength, Gotham's gentleman of crime with an obsession for birds and umbrellas, The Penguin, and his arch-enemy, The Joker, among others.
While Batman's rogues gallery grew, his allies did too, including his butler, Alfred , who tends to Bruce Wayne's needs behind the scenes and serves as his confident, Tim Drake, better known as Robin III, Dick Grayson as Nightwing, or formerly the first Robin, Police Commissioner James Gordon, and his daughter, Barbara Gordon who became Batgirl, Ace Wayne as Bathound, Jean-Paul Valley as Azrael, a college student who had been brainwashed by a religious organisation, and The Spoiler, or Stephanie Brown who is the daughter of a minor villain, as well as occasional allies such as Huntress (Helena Bertinelli) and Catwoman (Selina Kyle, who are both allied with and against Batman and his other allies at times. Batman also leads the Outsiders, a rag tag group of Super Heroes operating in Gotham City, which includes heroes who are not directly allied with Batman otherwise, such as Katana. Batman is friends with Daphne Blake, Fred Jones, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy Rogers and Velma Dinkley, and the five have helped him and Robin catch The Joker and The Penguin on several occasions.
Batman is also a founding member of the Justice League, an organisation of Super Heroes untied to handle threats too big for one hero. Other Justice League members include Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, Aquaman, Flash, The Martian Manhunter, and occasionally, Batgirl, Nightwing, Huntress, Zatanna, Hawkman, and Shazam.
The Dark Knight Trilogy
Batman was a vigilante motivated by the deaths of his parents at the hands of a mugger. He began operating in Gotham City shortly before he helped to counteract a conspiracy involving the kingpin Carmine Falcone, corrupt psychologist Jonathan Crane, and Ra's Al Ghul, the head of a terrorist organization known as the League of Shadows who was responsible for much of Batman's training. Batman and his ally in the police department, Jim Gordon, were essential in saving Gotham City from their plot to use Crane's fear inducing toxin to cause the city to destroy itself.
Batman's heroism caused a surge in his popularity and he operated successfully for about a year, when Gotham was threatened by a madman calling himself The Joker began attacking innocents. He seemingly murdered Gordon, which caused Batman to decide to reveal his identity as Bruce Wayne and sacrifice himself to stop the Joker from hurting anyone else. However, a promising district attorney candidate, Harvey Dent, falsely claimed that he was the vigilante. Gordon, who had faked his death, was promoted to police commissioner and helped Batman to protect Dent, but Joker was able to kidnap both Dent and his fiance, Rachel Dawes, and placed them in two different buildings rigged to explode. This killed Rachel and left Dent alive, but horribly scarred. Joker continued his terrorism, but was eventually defeated when Lucius Fox helped Batman to use technology to locate him through footage from cellular phones. Batman and Gordon then confronted Dent, whose mind had been broken by the trauma the Joker had caused and had kidnapped Gordon's family. Dent was going to decide the fates of Batman, Gordon's son, and himself by flipping a coin three times. When the coin opted that Gordon's son would not live, Batman knocked Dent off of the ruined building they were situated at, which killed him. Batman instructed Gordon to accuse the vigilante of being responsible for Dent's murders so that Dent's memory could be preserved as an ideal and symbol for Gotham to cleanse itself.
For seven years, Batman remained retired until a cat burglar named Selina Kyle stole Wayne's mother Martha's pearls and he began investigating her before discovering that she was involved with a mercenary called Bane who had recently arrived in the city and sabotaged Wayne Enterprises earnings, rendering Bruce bankrupt and forcing him to put his company in the hands of Miranda Tate. Batman tracked down Selina and urged her to take him to Bane, which she did, but then betrayed Batman and allowed Bane to brutally defeat him.
Bane took Bruce to a prison in Africa called the Pit where Bane had grown-up which had a reputation for being brutal and inescapable. However, as its inhabitants told Bruce, the child of Ra's Al Ghul, but Bruce presumed to be Bane, had been able to climb out from the hole and escape. For months, Bruce healed and attempted to escape from the Pit while Bane revealed the truth about Harvey Dent's last days and put the city in anarchy but cutting off its connection to the rest of the United States and releasing every prisoner in the city from their cells (except for Joker). Bruce eventually escaped from the Pit and returned to Gotham where he recruited Gordon, Selina, Fox, Tate, and Detective John Blake to assist him in taking back the city from Bane and to disable a nuclear bomb he had created from a former transnuclear generator. Batman confronted Bane once again to rescue Tate, who Bane had captured, and managed to gain the upper hand, but Tate intervened and stabbed him. Tate revealed that her name was actually Talia Al Ghul, that she was Ra's' child, Bane was her protector, and now that her father was dead, Talia was determined to fulfill his mission to save Gotham from itself. Shortly after Talia left, Selina arrived and killed Bane. Batman chased after Talia and the bomb with an aircraft called the Bat. However, Talia had destroyed the generator's reactor, the only way it could have been stabilized, forcing Batman to fly the bomb away from the city in the Bat, leaving everyone to believe that he had died a hero and Wayne had gone missing in the anarchy. However, Fox and Gordon received hints suggesting that he had survived, the Bat being returned to Wayne Enterprises and the Bat-signal's broken glass being fixed. Alfred saw Bruce and Selina together at a cafe in Italy, fulfilling his wish that Bruce would find a life outside of Batman. Blake also retired from the police department and then discovered the Batcave underneath Wayne Manor.
In the Video Games
In LEGO Batman
When Commissioner Gordon lit up the Bat-Signal, Batman and Robin were seen in the Batmobile and on the Batcycle (respectively). They made a sharp turn, supposedly in the direction of the bank Clayface and The Riddler are robbing.
- The Riddler's Revenge
Once some of Batman's most fearsome enemies escaped Arkham Asylum and teamed up, Batman and Robin headed towards a bank which had been robbed by The Riddler and Clayface. The Dynamic Duo made their way through the streets defeating the Riddler Goons and Henchmen who tried to stop them. At the bank, a fight ensued against Clayface, who was eventually knocked back into a cage in the vault when the security system pumped poisonous fumes into the air. Two-Face arrived in his Armoured Truck to rescue The Riddler and a giant key he'd stolen. Batman was unable to stop his escape, but did manage to plant a tracking device on the truck.
Using the tracking device, Batman and Robin followed the truck to Mr. Freeze's old Ice Cream Factory. The duo was immediately attacked by more Riddler Goons and Henchmen, but once they entered the factory, they encountered a new enemy, the Freeze Girls. By reaching the end of the factory, the duo encountered Mr. Freeze and managed to defeat him. The Riddler escaped once again in Two-Face's armoured truck, this time with a Freeze Ray.
Batman gave chase to Two-Face's armoured car in the Batmobile, successfully destroying it. Two-Face and Riddler went in different directions to try and escape. Riddler was cornered against Police Headquarters. Riddler tried to fend of by making desperate attempts at the duo with his "?" cane, but he was rescued by Poison Ivy.
In the Batcave, Batman used the Batcomputer to analyse a leaf from the vine Ivy used to save the Riddler. He discovered it was from the Botanical Gardens. Batman and Robin reached the gardens to discover the Janitors and Scientists under siege from not only The Riddler's goons and henchmen, but from humanoid plant creatures, presumably created by Poison Ivy. In a closed off area behind the garden's laboratory, Batman and Robin discovered and defeated Poison Ivy, but The Riddler escaped yet again (this time with mutant vine seeds) when he pointed out to Batman that Ivy caused Robin to fall in love with her. Batman forced Robin back to the Batcave, while Ivy was arrested.
Back in the Batcave, with help from Alfred, Batman and Robin solved the clues The Riddler had left at each of his escapes and discovered his plot was to stage a siege on the Gotham Gold Reserves. And sure enough, inside the Gold Reserves, they found Riddler and Two-Face. Two-Face created a diversion by shooting a nearby barrel of toxic waste onto the floor while The Riddler continued on. Using the Attract Suit, Robin created a swamp boat which he and Batman used to reach Two-Face. A fight ensured in which Two-Face was nearly defeated, but he got away at the last moment, calling more henchmen and goons to cover him in his flight.
Batman and Robin followed Two-Face through the vault. Riddler ordered Two-Face to attack. This time, Two-Face was almost defeated, but ran to the side of The Riddler at the last moment. The Riddler then used the vault's defence laser to try and defeat the Dynamic Duo. Batman and Robin used the chromed gold in the vault to deflect the laser beams back at The Riddler until his laser was destroyed. The Riddler then changed his tactics to using the mind control technology in his "?" cane to take control of a whimpering Two-Face, and attack the Duo himself. Eventually, both Riddler and Two-Face were knocked back into a pile of gold bars, subduing them both.
- Power-Crazed Penguin
When the Gotham Diamond was stolen from a museum, Batman and Robin found Catwoman fleeing from the scene and gave chase to her on the rooftops of Gotham. They caught up with her, once and a short fight ensued, after which Catwoman escaped. The duo continued to follow her above the city until she was finally cornered. She drew Batman in for a kiss, during which she threw the diamond to the streets below. Catwoman was then arrested and placed in a police van.
While in the Batboat, Batman was ambushed by Penguin Goons in submarines. Batman worked his way through the harbour, to find The Penguin's submarine. The submarine was destroyed, Penguin and Killer Croc, (who had helped Penguin escape the museum after the diamond heist) headed for the sewers. Batman and Robin caught up with the criminals, but Killer Croc threw the door which gave access to the sewer in Robin's direction to cause a diversion.
Batman and Robin followed the criminals into the sewer where they were attacked by Penguin's Henchmen and Goons. The Duo eventually reached the Police Headquarters, by way of the sewage system, to find that Catwoman had been freed and that she had fled the scene with Penguin. Killer Croc was waiting for Batman, and began throwing nearby debris in his direction. When Croc would change his tactics and charge at Batman or Robin, the duo used this time to strike and defeat him. When Croc fell, he dropped a flyer for the Gotham City Zoo.
When Batman and Robin reached the zoo, they discovered the Man-Bat in the hull of a boat Penguin had been using as a lookout. Man-Bat was wrapped in his own wings and defeated.
Batman and Robin continued on to the "Arctic World" portion of the zoo to discover Police Officers had been defeated by a large group of Robotic Penguins. Batman and Robin made their way past the Penguin Minions and Freeze Girls to a cave in the exhibit. In the cave, Batman discovered a satellite dish (which had been stolen by Bane previously), powered by the Gotham Diamond, which controlled the Penguin Minions that were assaulting the city. Batman redirected Penguin's bombers into treadmills which gave power to the satellite. Penguin, Catwoman and the Freeze Girls attacked the duo, only to be defeated and returned to Arkham Asylum.
- Joker's Return
While shopping for a new cape on the Batcomputer, Batman received a transmission of The Joker laughing into his camera. Alfred helped to prepare the Batwing and Bat-copter for the journey to the factory which transformed the Red Hood into the Joker to investigate. In the factory, Batman and Robin were attacked by Joker Goons and Henchmen. In the back of the factory, Batman discovered The Mad Hatter extracting the factory's chemicals. He made attempts to subdue Batman and Robin with his mind-control technology, but failed as he could only control one person as a time.
While the Dynamic Duo were fighting the Mad Hatter, Joker and Harley Quinn captured Commissioner Gordon and threatened to kill him if Batman did not act. Batman reached the carnival where Gordon was being held, and a fight ensued with Harley Quinn, while The Joker escaped on his helicopter. Gordon was freed and Harley was contained in a Police Van for the time being. Batman meant to give chase to Joker in his helicopter, but ended up pursuing Scarecrow in his bi-plane, which he shot down, crashing into Joker's helicopter in its fall. Both aircrafts were destroyed, and Batman left both villains for dead, not to notice that they survived by clinging onto balloons and fell through to the Gotham Art Gallery, where Scarecrow was captured by the Police.
Joker, however, escaped the gallery and met with Killer Moth, who was to help him reach his destination. While on their way, they encountered Gordon, freed Harley Quinn, and caused havoc on the nearby Police Forces. Batman received a transmission of the trouble on the Batcomputer. He and Robin reached the scene of the crime to find Killer Moth still there. They gave chase to him through the city streets. They eventually cornered and threatened him to tell Batman where Harley and The Joker were, or be sprayed with bug poison. Killer Moth pointed through a hole in the wall he was pinned up against, and Joker's truck was seen pulling up the Gotham City Cathedral.
Batman, Robin, and the remaining Police Forces rushed to the Cathedral. To gain entry, Robin opened up a window from which Harley Quinn jumped out. Batman used the water turrets mounted on the back of police vans to defeat her. Batman and Robin chased Harley to the top of the Cathedral where she and The Joker hid in giant bells. Once they were discovered by Batman, The Joker summoned his helicopter for protection, but once the helicopter was destroyed, it collapsed the platform which The Joker and Harley were on, knocking Harley unconscious. The Joker then attacked the Dynamic Duo, successfully defeating them with his Joy-Buzzer, knocking them unconscious. Harley was revived by the time Batman was. Batman threw a Batarang at the giant bells which disturbed the bats in the tower, who attacked Harley and The Joker who were then arrested by Commissioner Gordon and sent back to Arkham Asylum.
Batman and Robin scaled the side of Arkham Asylum with their Grapple-Guns. The Joker looked up out of the window in his cell and began to swing his fist in anger. At the top of the asylum, the Bat-Signal shined. Batman and Robin aimed their guns in the direction of the signal and the game ends with a close up of the bat symbol on Batman's chest.
In LEGO Batman 2
In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Batman is a main character.
Bruce Wayne and Lex Luthor were the nominees for The-Man-of-the-Year award, and at the ceremony, Bruce wins. However, the theatre was raided by The Joker, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, The Riddler, and Two-Face. Bruce exits to change into Batman while the villains rampage and Joker steals the award. Just as he is giving his "acceptance speech" Batman and Robin burst through the stage on the Bat-boat. Joker, Penguin, Riddler, and Two-Face escaped through the stage's trapdoor, while Harley fought the Dynamic Duo. She was defeated, and Batman and Robin began to search for and defeat the other villains.
Joker was able to escape the theatre, however, and made it to his boat. He was chased by Batman and Robin in the latter's helicopter with Batman hanging from a rope ladder. Joker threw chattering teeth to cut the ropes, but Batman summoned and landed in the Batwing. Batman and Robin chased him through to the Amusement Mile, where Batman disrupted the water with the Batwing's wing and caused Joker's boat to go ashore. After several failed attempts to destroy the Batwing, Joker was caught in a bat shaped net and sent to Arkham Asylum.
In the Batcave, Bruce Wayne is contacted by Martian Manhunter from the Justice League Watchtower and informs him of an emergency. Alfred shows Bruce and Tim Drake where it is on a map, and they change into Batman and Robin and leave for Arkham Asylum where they find the villains Joker freed attempting a prison break. They then attempt to stop them, starting with Catwoman. The villains are stopped, and the police arrive. Commissioner Gordon informs the Dynamic Duo that all of the villains have been accounted for, except Joker. Batman notices an electrified brick outside of Joker's cell. He and Robin go to investigate. They run-in to Killer Croc and Mr. Freeze, who create obstacles, and stop The Scarecrow from escaping. They bring a black piece back to the Batmobile and discover it was destroyed with LexCorp technology and conclude that Luthor broke Joker out. Batman, Robin, and Gordon are alerted by a Police Officer that there has been a break-in at Ace Chemicals, and they leave. When Gordon and the Officer look back, they realize that the villains have escaped.
At Ace Chemicals, Batman and Robin find that The Joker had already been there and stolen chemicals. They try to escape when a fire begins and just before they fall into the inferno, they are rescued by Superman. With help from Superman, they are able to escape. Batman tries to find out what Joker is making, and realizes it is Kryptonite. He uses the Batcomputer to find nearby locations of Kryptonite, and heads downtown. They follow a large vehicle, the Juggernaut. On the inside, Lex and Joker are creating Kryptonite. Batman and Robin begin firing at it. When the defenses are weakened enough, the Dynamic Duo infiltrate it. Batman takes the Kryptonite, and Lex is subdued. Joker however uses his joybuzzer on Batman and Robin to the point where they fall out of the Juggernaut, into their vehicles. Joker aims the Deconstructor at the Batmobile, which falls apart, and the Juggernaut gets away.
Back in the Batcave, Batman analyzes the Kryptonite and finds that it is only similar to true Kryptonite and that is harmless to Kryptonians. However, if there wasn't actual Kryptonite in the Juggernaut, the Batmobile's computer shouldn't have shown it. He and Robin decide that it was just a trick of Joker's, and put it away with the other Kryptonite they store in-case Superman goes bad.
Lex and Joker enter the Batcave, since the "Kryptonite" had a homing signal. A fight ensues, and the Bat-bike, Batwing, and Batboat are destroyed. Batman and Robin flee through the elevator, and hang on to the shaft to escape when it falls. Joker and Lex find the Kryptonite vault and leave with it after Joker's pies explode and a fire begins. At the top of the elevator shaft, Superman arrives to rescue Batman and Robin. Together they escape the Batcave. Batman and Superman head after a LexCorp aircraft while Robin stays and tries to fix the vehicles.
Batman and Superman infiltrate the LexCorp aircraft, but when the reach the control section, Batman is dropped through a trapdoor. Superman rescues him and carries him to LexCorp in Metropolis.
From LexCorp, a large Joker-esque robot emerges and heads back to Gotham. Batman in a LexCorp aircraft and Superman fire at it, and then land on it. Lex emerges with Kryptonite and weakens Superman who falls. Batman saves him by gliding back to Gotham. Though most of his powers return, he is unable to fly and hunches over.
The robot hits at them, and they fall through the ground. It continues to make holes in the ground above the metro, but Superman uses his heat vision to destroy the left hand completely.
At the City Hall, Lex begins to give a speech and infects the crowd with a mind-altering gas so that they will vote for him. Superman destroys the gas emitting flower from the robot.
Robin arrives in a multi-coloured Batmobile. The robot chases Batman and Robin through Gotham City, but they drive in such a way that the Kryptonite it leaves looks similar to Joker's face.
The robot attacks Wayne Tower, since Lex despises Bruce, and destroys the foundation. Superman and Wonder Woman keep it in place while Batman, Robin, Green Lantern, and Cyborg enter through the bottom of the building together. They knock the Robot off of the top and Green Lantern creates constructs to keep the tower from falling.
Superman is too weak to continue, but Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Cyborg, and The Flash finish it off. Joker is defeated, and Lex emerges in power armour. Batman contacts Martian Manhunter who readies the Watchtower laser. Robin helps aim it, and Lex is defeated.
His dog, Ace the Bathound is mentioned during Vicki Vale's news reports. He, Krypto the Superdog, and Stretch-O-Mutt are nominees for the "Dog of the Year" award.
In LEGO Dimensions
In the game LEGO Dimensions, Batman must team up with Wyldstyle, Gandalf, and other characters to stop the evil Vortech. To do so, they must travel between different LEGO realms encompassing a variety of themes.
Batman appears in The LEGO Movie, voiced by Will Arnett. He is a protagonist and assists the main heroes. Originally Wyldstyle's boyfriend and a Master Builder, Batman saves the other protagonists from a deadly fall during a fight with Bad Cop. Batman rebuilds Bad Cop's car into a baby carriage, delaying his pursuit of the heroes. Together, Batman joins the rest of the protagonists in journeying to Cloud Cuckoo Land, where they are once again attacked by Bad Cop. They escape in a submarine (Batman taking the credit for this idea, despite the fact that Emmet came up with it), but the submarine eventually breaks apart on its own, the Master Builders' conflicting styles causing it to be unstable. They are picked up by Metalbeard in his Sea Cow, and on the ship, the group plans how to infiltrate Lord Business's office tower. Forced by Emmet to follow instructions along with the other Master Builders, Batman joins the group in succeeding. As part of the plan, Batman dons his Bruce Wayne persona to convince Lord Business to add speakers to his doomsday Kragle device, which allows Emmet and Wyldstyle to infiltrate the room with the Kragle. Batman then joins Emmet with his grappling gun, allowing Emmet to swing onto the Kragle and put the Piece of Resistance on the tube.
Unfortunately, the group is detected, and Lord Business imprisons the Master Builders in his Think Tank, which is set to detonate as he unleashes Kragle on the universe. They are all saved when Emmet sacrifices himself to remove the power source for this detonation, and the remaining protagonists go to Bricksburg to help fight off Lord Business's forces. They are almost overwhelmed, but Emmet arrives back from the real world and confronts Lord Business, convincing him to let people take his creations and do new creative things with them, rather than trying to freeze them in place forever. Lord Business's headquarters explode as he puts the cap on the Kragle, rendering Lord Business's forces immobile and saving Batman and the others. During the following celebration, Batman ends his relationship with Wyldstyle on mutual terms, believing she deserves to be with Emmet.
Co-director Chris Miller said that Batman "is a little bit more egotistical and self-involved than other stuff we've seen him in. But in the end, he's still a hero and does the right thing and is a badass."
In LEGO Batman 3 Batman must team up with the Justice League, the Green Lantern Corps, AND Legion of Doom to save the galaxy from Brainiac and his shrinking ray.

Blue Super Heroes Suit
POW! WHAM! Batman is on the scene in Gotham City as The Caped Crusader from the comics! Criminals and thugs don’t stand a chance against this lean, mean minifigure with his fabric cape and bright yellow utility belt. Even though Batman doesn’t have any superpowers, his amazing detective skills, martial arts training and high-tech gadgets are more than enough to strike fear into villains everywhere!
Black Super Heroes Suit and TDKR Super Heroes Suit
Batman is back in black! The Dark Knight minifigure is more mysterious than ever in shiny black costume as he banishes crime from the streets of Gotham City, one infamous villain at a time. As the handsome billionaire Bruce Wayne by day and a vigilant super hero by night, Batman watches the night sky for Commissioner Gordon to light the Bat-Signal. After a quick costume change, he’ll swoop down from the Gotham City skyscrapers to soar into action and save the day with high-tech accessories
Batman believes in being prepared for any emergency. When cold-weather crooks like Mr. Freeze threaten Gotham City, Batman suits up in his thermo-regulated, ice-proof arctic suit to save the day!
The LEGO Movie
He makes it no secret he prefers to work alone, since he could probably get the job done better and faster than anyone else. He is presently Wyldstyle’s boyfriend, and lacks very little in the looks, ability or confidence department.
Villains at Gotham Harbor beware; going out to sea won't keep SCUBA Batman from chasing you down and dishing out justice. Exploding with aqua power, he zips through water as silent and deadly as a Great White Shark, his super-reinforced scuba suit protecting him from creatures of the deep as he heads to his target. Even radio-controlled penguins loaded with dynamite can't stop SCUBA Batman from tearing into battle. With one perfectly aimed shot of his harpoon, villains are sunk. Gotham City is safe once more.

- In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, Batman was voiced by Steven Jay Blum. Blum also voiced The Joker, Killer Moth, Two-Face, and Killer Croc and also the voice of Wolverine in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes
- In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Batman is voiced by Troy Baker who also voiced Two-Face, Brainiac, Sinestro and Hawkman. In addition Baker voices Loki in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes.
- In 30160 Bat Jetski and other DC sets from more recent production runs, Batman's cowl has been remoulded. However, earlier productions of the cowl went on lower than they should have to line-up with the headband, much like Even Piell's head, but it was fixed before the 2013 wave.
- In The LEGO Movie, He is portrayed by Will Arnett, who also portrays Vernon Fenwick in the 2014 film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
- The reason why Batman hates Cloud Cukoo Palace in The LEGO Movie besides the bright colours and perkiness is that several characters there remind him of his Villians e.g. Clown reminds him of The Joker, Lizard Man reminds him of Killer Croc.
