CEO of Wayne Enterprises
|Residence||Gotham City (Wayne Manor)|
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 superstitious and 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.
Batman also has many allies as well, such as his butler and former guardian, Alfred Pennyworth, Police Commissioner Jim Gordon, Robin (Tim Drake), Nightwing (Dick Grayson, the original Robin), Red Hood (Jason Todd, the second Robin), Batgirl (Jim Gordon's daughter, Barbara Gordon), and the Justice League, which Batman is a founding member of.
He and his sidekick Robin were chasing Bane in the streets of Gotham City, but he witnessed Robin being sucked into a vortex with a piece of Kryptonite unbeknownst to Batman that was the foundation element for DC Comics. He came to the Mines of Moria in Middle-earth to Gandalf's aid as he was about to slay the Balrog, rescuing him from being killed in the pit below. After Frodo being sucked into the vortex with the One Ring, the two soon found themselves in Cloud Cuckoo Land, where they met Wyldstyle, just after MetalBeard went missing: a petty fight between him and LEGO Movie Batman occurred. Soon, the trio sucked into another vortex, sending them into Vorton, and after rebuilding the LEGO Gateway, they arrived at the Yellow Brick Road in Oz, starting their journey to save the LEGO Multiverse.
- He is voiced by Troy Baker in this game, who has voiced Batman on multiple occasions, beginning with LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and later returning for LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. He also voices Batman in LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite and the LEGO DC Comics movies (which are not related to the video games or LEGO Batman: The Movie - DC Super Heroes Unite).
- Baker also voices Two-Face in this game.
- Batman will transform into his LEGO Batman Movie equivalent when in The LEGO Batman Movie levels and Adventure World.
- He can remain in this form permanently upon purchase and use of the "Always Batman" Red Brick.
- Despite Batman being in his new late 2014/early 2015 suit minifigure variant, he has the same cowl as the late 2013/early 2014 one.
- However, in some concept art he is shown with his New 52 Cowl.
- He has the least amount of pieces in the Starter Pack if you count accessories, however, additional Batarangs are provided.
- His character model has the same still animation as in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.
- It should be noted that his portrayal in this game does borrow some character traits from Batman of The LEGO Movie, especially his arrogant attitude, showing off, and his vocally expressed dislike for bright colors, despite the fact that it is heavily implied this is the same Batman who previously appeared in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham. In both of those incarnations, he had a much more serious attitude to match the character's depiction outside of the LEGO media.
- He is the main picture for the Forever Alone achievements, which also refers to the fact that he is a somewhat a self-diagnosed loner.
- Batman's character showcase theme is the Batman theme by Danny Elfman, which was introduced in the 1989 film and was also used in his all of his LEGO video game appearances. However, it is played how it was in the 1992 sequel Batman Returns instead of the original 1989 film. Another variation of this theme was also used in the intro of 1992's Batman The Animated Series.
- Scooby-Doo's quote towards him also references the opening theme of the 1966 Batman TV series.
- Along with Legolas and Ethan Hunt, he has one line when in the rift.
- He will occasionally mistake other characters for some heroes and villains that he had encountered within the DC Comics franchise:
- The Scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz for the Scarecrow from DC Comics as they are both scarecrows.
- Krusty the Clown for the Joker because of the clown theme they share.
- Cragger for Killer Croc due to them being crocodiles.
- Eris for Hawkgirl due to them being birds, except Hawkgirl has a human body.
- Lloyd for DC Comics' Samurai due to being both martial artists, except Lloyd is a ninja.
- His Toy Tag is based his 2014-2015 suit minifigure variant, with his bat logo being the main symbol.
- His second entry line references the 2012 Batman film The Dark Knight Rises
