In LEGO Batman: The Videogame
In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, Batman's basic suit is identical to his comic book suit. He is armed with a yellow and black batarang, and able to use grapple.

In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes
Batman's super suits return, but have different abilities. They include the electricity suit, the power suit, the sensor suit, and the bat suit.
The electricity suit is capable of going through electric barriers when other characters, such as Superman, can't go through. It also allows Batman to absorb an electric charge and deploy it to machinery. It is black with a black bat-logo, outlined in blue, similar to the comic suit. It has a blue/silver belt, again similar to the comic suit's, but without the flaps.

He also has a purple bat symbol, purple hands and hips, and a sonic gun that is black and has a blue disk at the end that can mimic Black Canary and Man-Bat's glass breaking abilities. The bat suit only makes an appearance on console versions.
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.
At first, Batman fought "plain-clothes" villains without any super powers 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 the third Robin or Red Robin; Dick Grayson as Nightwing, or formerly the first Robin; Damian Wayne, Batman's son who soon became the fifth Robin; Red Hood, the second Robin who became a twisted and violent vigilante; Police Commissioner James Gordon, and his daughter, Barbara Gordon who became Batgirl; 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 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.
Batman's love interests include Talia Al Ghul (the daughter of Ra's Al Ghul and the mother of Batman's son, Damian Wayne), Selina Kyle (Catwoman), and Zatanna. He has also shown attraction to Wonder Woman, Lois Lane, Vicki Vale, Black Canary, and in some depictions, Barbara Gordon and Poison Ivy.
Bruce Wayne was a young boy when he fell into a hole and was scared by the bats in the cave, causing his fear of bats. He then leaves the theatre with his parents, and watched his parent murdered in front of him by Joe Chill, comforted by Jim Gordon is, and raised by the family butler Alfred. Years later, Chill is granted parole for testifying against mob boss Carmine Falcone. Bruce goes to the trail intending to shoot Chill, but one of Falcone's assassins kills Chill first, and Batman confides his attempt to his childhood friend Rachel Dawes (now an assistant district attorney),who is disgusted by Bruce's desire for vengeance. Following a confrontation with Falcone, Bruce decides to leave Gotham to learn about the criminal underground and skills needed for him to return and purge the city from its crime and corruption. While in a prison, he is confronted by Henri Ducard, who offered him to be trained as a member of The League of Shadows led by Ra's Al Ghul. After he completes his training, the League's true intentions are revealed: to free Gotham from itself by destroying it. Bruce then burns down the League's temple, in the process killing Ra's and saving Ducard.
Bruce then meets Alfred on plane while returning to Gotham, revealing his plan to become a vigilante to bring Gotham back from its corrupted state. He poses publicly as a reckless playboy, while privately taking interest into his father's company, Wayne Enterprises. He meets Lucius Fox, and Fox provides him with information, a suit, memory cloth, and a military car prototype called the Tumbler, which Bruce uses to form his persona of Batman. Batman then intercepts a drug transfer and hands the previously untouchable Falcone over to Sergeant Jim Gordon, meanwhile a "Microwave Emitter" which uses waves to vaporize water is stolen.
Falcone and his henchmen are declared mentally unfit for trial and transferred to Arkham Asylum by the corrupt Dr. Johnathan Crane who had been using Falcone to import a dangerous hallucinogenic drug that causes severe psychosis. Crane exposes Falcone to the toxin while wearing a burlap mask, driving Falcone insane with fear of "The Scarecrow." While investigating Crane, Batman is also exposed to the drug and is rescued by Alfred and given an antidote by Fox. Rachel goes to Arkham, where Crane reveals that he has been dumping the toxin into Gotham's water supply before dosing her with it. She is rescued by Batman, who exposes Crane to the toxin and interrogates him. Crane reveals that the toxin is only dangerous if inhaled. Batman inoculates Rachel and gives her two vials of the antidote, one for Gordon and one for mass production.
At his birthday celebration at Wayne Manor, Bruce is confronted by Ducard, who reveals himself to be the real Ra's Al Ghul. Feigning drunkenness, Bruce kicks his guests out so they will be safe, leaving him alone with Ra's and his ninja. Ra's reveals the League's plan to destroy Gotham: having stolen the Microwave Emitter and conspired with Crane, they intend to vaporize the city's toxin-riddled water supply, creating mass hysteria and violence. The League sets fire to the mansion and Bruce is nearly trapped inside, but Alfred saves him at the last minute. As the League begins unleashing the toxin, Batman rescues Rachel from a drug-induced mob and reveals his true identity to her. He entrusts Gordon with the Tumbler and pursues Ra's, who is using Gotham's train system to deliver the weapon throughout the city. Batman confronts Ra's on the train and escapes just as Gordon uses the Tumbler to destroy the elevated tracks, leaving Ra's to die in the ensuing crash.
Batman becomes a public hero, but simultaneously loses Rachel, who cannot bring herself to love both Bruce and Batman. Bruce buys a controlling stake in the now publicly traded Wayne Enterprises, fires Earle, and replaces him with Fox as the new CEO. Jim Gordon is promoted to Lieutenant, showing Batman the Bat-Signal and mentions a costumed criminal who leaves Joker playing cards at crime scenes. Batman promises to investigate this new criminal while disappearing into the night.
A year after Batman Begins, crime is close to being eradicated with the help of new Distinct Attorney Harvey Dent. The Joker and a group of hired henchmen rob a mob bank, but having organized the henchmen to kill each other in the process, he escapes alone. Batman and Gordon decide to include Dent in the fight against Gotham's criminal element. At a dinner, Harvey is revealed to be dating Rachel Dawes, Bruce is impressed by Dent's idealism and decides to hold a fundraiser for him. The mob is told by Lau, a Chinese accountant, that he has hidden their money and fled to Hong Kong. The Joker crashes the meeting, warns the mob the Batman has no jurisdiction, and offers to kill Batman for half their money. The mob refuses, and Gambol puts a bounty on the Joker's head. Later, Joker kills Gambol and takes control of his faction of the mob, while Batman goes to Hong Kong, apprehends Lau, and brings him back to Gotham. Lau agrees to testify against the mob.
The Joker issues a deal, either Batman takes off his mask and reveals himself, or a person will die each day until he does. True to his word, the Commissioner and a judge are killed. Joker interrupts a party for Dent, intending to kill Dent himself, but Batman intervenes and Joker gets away after throwing Rachel out of a window, but is saved by Batman. Rachel is looked after by Alfred after she is revealed to be The Joker's next target. The Joker tries to assassinate Mayor Garcia during Loeb's memorial service, but Gordon foils the attempt, apparently sacrificing himself in the process. As a result, Bruce plans to reveal his identity, but Dent instead names himself as Batman to protect the truth. Dent is taken into protective custody and pursued by Joker across the city as Batman rushes to aid. Gordon, who faked his death, helps apprehend The Joker and is promoted to Commissioner. However, Dent and Rachel disappear. Batman interrogates the Joker and learns each are in separate buildings filled with explosives. Batman finds Dent moments before the buildings explode, killing Rachel and scarring half of Dent's face. The Joker then uses a bomb to escape from the police department with Lau.
Coleman Reese, an accountant at Wayne Enterprises, deduces Batman's secret identity and plans to blackmail him. The Joker kills Lau and The Chechen, and threatens to bomb a hospital unless Reese is killed. Gordon rescues Reese, while The Joker visits Dent in the hospital, convincing him to get revenge. Dent uses his burned lucky coin to decide the fates of those responsible for Rachel's death, killing Maroni and two corrupt cops who had helped kidnap Rachel. After blowing up the hospital and escaping with hostages, The Joker gives two explosive rigged ferries, one of citizens and the other of Arkham Asylum inmates, the choice to blow the other up before midnight—otherwise, both will explode. Batman asks a reluctant Lucius Fox to use a city-wide tracking device to find the Joker; Fox agrees, but says he will resign immediately afterward. Batman rescues the hostages, who are disguised as Joker's gang, by fighting off the Joker's real men and Gordon's S.W.A.T. team. The ferry passengers refuse to kill each other, and are saved as Batman apprehends The Joker. Nevertheless, Joker gloats that he has won, as the citizens of Gotham will lose hope once Dent's rampage becomes public knowledge. Batman leaves to find Dent as The Joker is taken into custody.
Dent lures Gordon to the building where Rachel died and holds his family hostage, as Batman confronts him. Dent judges the fates of Batman, himself, and Gordon's son with three coin flips. As a result, he shoots Batman in the abdomen, spares himself, and flips to determine the boy's fate. Batman, who is wearing body armour, tackles the former D.A. off the building before he can kill the boy, resulting in Dent's death. Batman convinces Gordon to hold him publicly responsible for the murders so that Dent will remain a symbol of hope for the city. A manhunt for Batman ensues, as he escapes on the Batpod. Alfred burns a letter written by Rachel to Bruce announcing her engagement to Dent, Fox watches the signal tracker self-destruct, and Gordon destroys the Bat-Signal before delivering a eulogy at Dent's funeral.
Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, organized crime has been completely eradicated under the Dent Act. Batman has taken the blame for Dent's death and the five people Harvey killed, and is public enemy #1. Bruce Wayne is shaken by the death of Rachel and has become a recluse, hiding away in Wayne Manor. Selina Kyle talks to Bruce and steals his mother's prized necklace, prompting Bruce to go into the Batcave for the first time in years to find out about Kyle. GCPD officer John Blake confronts Bruce and hints that he knows Bruce is Batman and says that Gotham will need Batman again and Wayne Enterprises is collapsing so it needs Bruce. Gordon also persuades Batman to come back. Alfred resigns after he fails to talk Bruce out of becoming Batman again, including telling Bruce that Rachel had intended to marry Dent before she died. Bane raids the Gotham stock exchange (under John Daggett's orders) and bankrupts Bruce. Bruce hand Wayne Enterprises and the thermonuclear project to Miranda Tate in order to prevent Daggett from possessing it.
Batman asks Selina to take him directly to Bane, which she does and then betrays him, locking him in Bane's headquarters. After a brief fight Bane breaks Batman's back and mask, and reveals that his headquarters is under Wayne Enterprises and takes the Tumblers. Bane then takes Bruce to a prison known as The Pit to watch his beloved city destroyed while he sits helpless at the bottom. While there, the inmates of the prison relay Bane's story and the tale of Ra's Al Ghul's child, the only one who was able to escape the Pit, and Bruce believes the child to be Bane.
He spends months recuperating and watching Bane turn Gotham into a state of anarchy and isolating it off from the rest of the country after threatening to deactivate the generator, which had been turned into a bomb. He failed multiple times to climb out of the pit. He eventually succeeded and returned to Gotham. He overthrows Bane with the help of Gordon, Selina, John Blake, and Lucius. Miranda reveals she is the daughter of Ra's, named Talia, stabs Batman in the side, tells Bane's true history, and gets away with the bomb. Batman stops her in The Bat, while Gordon places a disturber on the bomb, and Talia dies in the result. Batman then reveals his identity to Gordon before he takes the bomb into the bay, seemingly sacrificing himself. Batman is commended a hero, while Bruce is named a casualty of the takeover. Alfred sees Bruce at an Italian cafe with Selina Kyle while John Blake finds the Batcave under the instructions in Bruce's will.
A couple years into his crime-fighting career, Batman is trained and protected by Alfred, his butler and former MI-6 agent. After Alfred is injured, Bruce finds an ally in Katana, Alfred's goddaughter and former member of the C.I.A. and League of Assassins. Batman also slowly gains an ally in Lt. Gordon.
His rouges gallery included Professor Pyg, Mr. Toad, Magpie, Humpty Dumpty, Tobias Whale and his archenemy Anarky. He also had to deal with the League led by Ra's Al Ghul and included Lady Shiva, Silver Monkey, and Cypher, who wanted to Ion Cortex and the Soultaker Sword, which was stolen by Katana until it was reclaimed by Shiva.
In the Video Games
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.
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.
In Gotham City, Batman and Robin are pursuing Killer Croc after he had broken into the City Records Office. Batman and Robin find Killer Croc and his Croc Henchmen. Killer Croc runs through the sewers where he runs into Cheetah, Firefly, Joker, and Solomon Grundy. Killer Croc gives them the sewer maps.
Back at the Batcave, Batman sees through his telescope a spaceship that is approaching Earth. Batman takes Robin's suggestion to contact Martian Manhunter on the Justice League's communicator to check it out just. Alfred Pennyworth is pleased that Batman is doing the idea that was suggested by Robin. When Batman looks at the spaceship again, he is mesmerized by a beam shot by it causing him to attack Alfred and Robin. This caused Robin and Alfred to work to snap Batman out of the trance he is in. After Robin used the Bat-Vehicles to get Batman out of the Batmobile, Batman summons a lot of bats where the energy controlling Batman ends up using the bats to form a larger Batman figure. Afterwards, Robin tries to get through to Batman which was enough to snap him out of his trance. Batman wonders who was trying to control his mind and why.
In the Watchtower, Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern, assisted by Batman, try to determine what the strange spaceship is. Their communication is halted when the Watchtower's communicators are shut down. An unauthorized use of the Slideways teleport is detected, and Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern learn of the Legion of Doom's presence on the Watchtower. Martian Manhunter alerts Cyborg, The Flash, Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, and Robin, and they all head up to the Watchtower, except for Batman and Robin, who still need a ride up into space, due to the Slideways teleport system being shut down temporarily. Upon assembling the Bat-Rocket, Batman and Robin head into space. While Green Lantern investigates the spaceship, Martian Manhunter works to hold off Lex Luthor and his villain allies. Firefly traps Martian Manhunter in a ring of fire. Before Lex Luthor can get ahold of the Binary Fusion Cannon, the Justice League Watchtower's computer alerts the entire base of the Bat-Rocket's approach. Joker prepares to take out Batman "old school style." After destroying some Joker Rockets, Batman and Robin lose their respectful vehicles. Before they can be blown up, Superman arrives and saves them. While Superman gets Robin onto the Justice League's jet, Batman works to find a way in to the Justice League Watchtower with the help of Cyborg and Flash.
Once inside the Justice League Watchtower, the Justice League members confront Lex Luthor and his villain allies. Batman and Superman fight their way past LexBots and Joker Henchmen before Lex Luthor shows up in a larger exo-suit. Using his Electric Suit, Batman powers up an EMP device to disable Lex Luthor's exo-suit while Superman subdues Joker. With the villains defeated, the Justice League Watchtower informs everyone present that an unknown object is approaching. Martain Manhunter identifies the object that he sent Green Lantern to investigate. Brainiac contacts the Justice League Watchtowers and introduces himself. Brainiac states that he collects things throught the universe by using his shrink ray to miniaturize cities throughout the galaxy and is now interested in collecting worlds.
It is shown that Brainiac is using the power rings of the captive Green Lantern, Sinestro, Star Sapphire, Atrocitus, Saint Walker, and Larfleeze to power the crystals needed to shrink Earth. Superman does an attempt to stop Brainiac's shrink ray. Lex Luthor states that if Superman fails, they are going to need a Plan B. Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, Flash, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, Joker, Cheetah, Killer Croc, and Solomon Grundy work together to infiltrate Brainiac's ship in order to rescue Green Lantern and the others from Brainiac. Due to the helmet that Robin was wearing after being regurgitated from Killer Croc, he is unaffected by Brainiac's mind-control and attacks Brainiac to keep him from controlling the heroes and villains present. When Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, and Solomon Grundy take down Brainiac, Superman is shown to be getting close to stopping the shrink ray which causes it to overload. Brainiac then escapes to Earth as the shrink ray's explosion causes Green Lantern and the power ring wielders to disappear where their respectful energies from the Emotional Spectrum hits each one of the heroes and villains present, except for Batman and Robin who is wearing the helmet. Batman and Wonder Woman pursue Superman, who has fallen to Earth. They follow him to Paris, France where the impact of his crash collapses the Eiffel Tower.
After Superman regains consciousness with Wonder Woman's help, Batman repairs the Eiffel Tower in his own image. After Wonder Woman kicks the Eiffel Tower where it collapses, Superman manages to repair it in the right appearance. Brainiac then arrives where he is now planning to shrink Earth's cities.
Brainiac manages to shrink Paris and bottle it as Superman claims the bottle. Then they follow Brainiac to London, England where he manages to shrink it. Upon Batman claiming the bottle holding London, he, Superman, and Wonder Woman follow Brainiac to Pisa, Italy where Superman straightens the Leaning Tower of Pisa until Brainiac's ship leans it back to it's original position and shrinks it. Before leaving, Brainiac leaves vowing that the Justice League won't stop him.
In outer space, Green Lantern fixes the Justice League Watchtower. Afterwards, he and Martian Manhunter are contacted by Batman to help them locate Brainiac. Martian Manhunter states that Brainiac is heading for Gotham City as Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman head there. In Gotham City, Robin, Flash, Cyborg, Lex Luthor, Joker, Cheetah, and Solomon Grundy are confronted by Brainiac.
Wonder Woman manages to bring Brainiac's ship down as he unleashes his robot clones while he escapes into his spaceship. Flash was able to create a cage to trap Brainiac's spaceship which will hold it there for awhile while both groups fall back to the Justice League Watchtower.
Back on the Justice League Watchtower, Robin reveals that he has a shard of the crystal used by Brainiac in his plot to shrink Earth. Superman states that he could use the crystals at the Fortress of Solitude to create a duplicate.
Green Lantern suspects that the other power ring wielders were transported back to the source planets of their power rings. When Robin asks how their going to get Atrocitus, Larfleeze, and Sinestro to help, Green Lantern states that they should get ahold of their power batteries where the energies contained should be enough to help.
On Ysmault, Green Lantern, Solomon Grundy, Batman (who is disguised as Joker), Robin (who is disguised as Lex Luthor), and Wonder Woman (who is disguised as Cheetah) all pursue Atrocitus and Bleez, when they summon the entity of rage: The Butcher. Upon defeating The Butcher, Batman, Robin, and Wonder Woman distract Atrocitus while Green Lantern steals the power battery. On Okaara, Green Lantern, Solomon Grundy, Batman, Robin, and Wonder Woman (all wearing their disguises still) make plans to distract Larfleeze. When Larfleeze and his Orange Lantern constructs are defeated, Green Lantern creates a construct of himself so that he can steal the Orange Lantern power battery.
On Qward, Sinestro appears on the Justice League ship where he is not fooled by the act by Green Lantern's group resulting in Green Lantern taking Sinestro off the ship. After Batman, Robin, and Wonder Woman shed their disguises near the Sinestro Corps power battery, Sinestro traps Green Lantern in a marionette. Batman realizes that he must be afraid in order to obtain the Sinestro Corps power battery. He then sees Robin being pursued by a large Killer Croc construct created by Sinestro, and Batman becomes fearful that Robin will be harmed. Batman then claims the Sinestro Corps power battery. Upon Green Lantern's group retreating, Larfleeze and Atrocitus arrive prompting them and Sinestro to go after them.
Martian Manhunter, Flash, Cyborg, Saint Walker, Indigo-1, and Star Sapphire arrive at the Fortress of Solitude. Green Lantern's group also arrives just as Sinestro, Larfleeze, and Atrocitus catch up. Upon the Justice League getting the rest of the Lanterns to focus their energy towards the crystal, Earth is restored to it's normal size, the different Lanterns disappear, and the energies from the Emotional Spectrum disappear from it's victims. The villains then leave as Flash goes to check on Brainiac. Flash returns and reports
that Brainiac's ship has gotten free. Brainiac arrives at the Fortress of Solitude in his ship where he reveals that he had taken Gotham City and Metropolis on his way to the Fortress of Solitude. Superman suddenly grows in size as Brainiac mind-controls him. After Batman uses a speech to break Brainiac's mind-control, Superman manages to stop Brainiac and obtain the shrink ray that is needed to restore Superman and the cities to their rightful sizes. The Justice League then leaves the Fortress of Solitude with Brainiac as their prisoner. The cities of the worlds have been restored to their rightful sizes.
At the White House, Lex Luthor is enjoying being President with his villain allies present until the Justice League arrives. With the villains arrested, Lex Luthor and Joker are sharing the same cell with a shrunken Brainiac.
When Robin, Frodo, and Metalbeard are each pulled into the vortexes, each unknowingly in possession of one of the Elements, Batman alongside Gandalf and Wyldstyle all jump in after them. The three get pulled into the same vortex and appear on Vorton, where the vortex generator they came out of explodes, prompting them to rebuild it. Aided by X-PO, the three use the generator to travel through the multiverse to search for the five missing keystones that power the generator and the Foundation Elements, hoping to find their missing friends and stop Vortech's plan from succeeding. Along their journey, they meet and assist the various heroes of the worlds they visit, such as Homer Simpson, The Doctor, Doc Brown, Dorothy Gale among others while fighting numerous villains, like the Wicked Witch of the West, Master Chen, The Riddler and Lord Vortech himself. However, Vortech eventually finds out that X-PO is helping them. The heroes travel to Foundation Prime to find their friends and fight Vortech, but it turns out it was a diversion that allows the villains to ambush X-PO and retrieve the Foundation Elements that the trio had previously collected, allowing Vortech to unlock the foundation of the multiverse: a green Lego building plate. This imbues Vortech with near-unlimited power, and he merges Frodo, Metalbeard, Robin and a piece of himself into a giant robot mutant known simply as the Tri, sending it to wreak havoc on the trio's worlds.
After freeing their friends from inside the Tri, they destroy the Vortech piece, causing the Tri to implode. After the Tri's defeat, Batman realizes that they are going to need all the help they can get to defeat Vortech. The trio recruits The Doctor, Mystery Inc., the Ghostbusters, the space ship Defender, Doc Brown and Marty McFLy and even GLaDOS to defeat him. While the Doctor, GLaDOS, and X-PO work on a plan to seal Vortech in a rift loop, the heroes head to Foundation Prime, fighting Vortech along the way. With their allies' help, they are able to destroy the Lego plate, which causes Foundation Prime's palace to collapse and infuriates Vortech. He grows to an enormous size and attacks the trio, but the Doctor is able to manipulate the portal technology and sucks all of them into a rift loop. Using a special device he, GLaDOS, and X-PO designed, the heroes are able to seal Vortech in an endless rift prison for all eternity, saving the dimensions.
- "I only work in black... and sometimes very, very dark gray."
- ―Batman in The LEGO Movie
He first appears in the Old West; saving Emmet, Wyldstyle, and Vitruvius on the Batwing. When confronting Bad Cop, he uses his Master Building power to turn his car into a baby carriage. He then crashes into the sun, taking them all to Middle Zealand. He turns the Batwing into the Batmobile, and shows off the new loud speakers he added to the back of the vehicle. He takes a rainbow to Cloud Cuckoo Land, which he appeared to hate, especially after seeing Lizard Man (who may have reminded him of Killer Croc) and the Circus Clown (who may have reminded him of The Joker). He and the Master Builders went inside "The Dog", where "The Special" made his speech. However, it was not a success as the Master Builders became angry that Emmet was just an ordinary person. Batman tells Wyldstyle that she was right about Emmet being a "ding-dong". Just then, the Super Secret Police attack the palace and Batman calls, "Every man for himself!" However, Wyldstyle convinces him to help her and the others. They then meet Spaceman Benny, who attempts to help group by building a spaceship. However, he quits after Wyldstyle informs him the skies are surrounded. Emmet then decides that they travel underwater. However, Batman steals his idea, getting the credit.

- 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.
- Three versions of his cowl have been produced. The classic cowl, an updated version for the 2013 sets, and another for his New 52 and Spacesuit variants, which has no chin strap and shorter ears.
- His voice actor in The LEGO Movie and LEGO Dimensions, Will Arnett plays Vernon Fenwick in the live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
- Strangely, his cowl in The LEGO Movie Video Game is the same as his old one rather than the updated one.
- He has had 7 different head pieces: one for the Batman theme, one for the first Super Heroes sets, one for his scuba suit, one for his space suit, one for his Batman Begins variant, one for Batman of Zur-En-Arrh and one for New 52.
- The 1966 variant in LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is voiced by his original actor from the Batman television series Adam West who also appears in the video game as himself and reprised his role as Gray Ghost from the Batman animated series.
- In Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice, he is portrayed by Ben Affleck, who also portrayed Daredevil in the Marvel theme.
