Bruce Wayne, AKA Batman, is a famous vigilante and superhero from DC Comics. He appeared in the 23rd episode of Death Battle, Batman VS Spider-Man, where he fought Marvel's most popular hero, Spider-Man. He returned for the 36th episode, Batman VS Captain America, where he fought against a different Marvel icon, Captain America. He reappeared yet again for the 88th episode and Season 5 Premiere, Black Panther VS Batman, where he fought yet another Marvel hero, Black Panther.


Bruce Wayne was the son of billionaire couple Thomas and Martha Wayne, and was forever changed after his parents were killed in an alleyway right in front of his eyes. After this traumatizing experience, he dedicated his life to wage war on the criminal empire, and spent the next decade physically and mentally improving himself to peak human perfection. Determined to strike fear into the hearts of criminals, he is inspired by a bat flying into the window and becomes the vigilante known as Batman, the defender of Gotham City.

  • Batman is the second-oldest character to appear on Death Battle, debuting one year after Superman.
  • Batman is the second DC Comics character on Death Battle, after Wonder Woman, and with the next 11 being Superman, Deathstroke, Lex Luthor, Green Arrow, The Flash, The Joker, Doomsday, Bane, Batman Beyond, Raven and Doctor Fate.
  • Batman made the most appearances in ScrewAttack fighting shows out of any other combatants with 9, having appeared as a combatant in three Death Battles, in two One Minute Melees and having had a cameo in four other Death Battles. The second place goes to Akuma with 7, who appeared once in Death Battle as a fighter, three times in One Minute Melee as a fighter, once in DBX as a fighter and in two cameos in two other One Minute Melee's.
  • Batman is the only combatant that became a support character to another combatant later on, as he assisted Batman Beyond in his fight against Spider-Man 2099.
    • He is also the third support character to defeat another support character, after Snake's support Otacon and Tai Kamiya.
  • Batman is the second combatant to return for another episode, the first being Leonardo and the following 11 being Boba Fett, Samus Aran, Son Goku, Superman, Charizard, Shadow the Hedgehog, Deadpool, Metal Sonic, Thor, Wonder Woman and Ryu.
    • He is, however, the first to return more than once.
      • Coincidentally, all three of his opponents are from the same company/series.

He is the first DC comics character to win a Death battle match against a Marvel comics character.
    • Ironically, his loss against Spider-Man is what gave Marvel and Disney those leads on other series/companies.
    • Even more ironically is that Batman's loss against Black Panther ended Marvel's four episode long losing streak.
  • Batman's sprite was custom made on Mugen, borrowing elements from some other professional sprites such as Cyclops.
  • Batman is the third combatant to return to fight in One Minute Melee, after Akuma, Bowser, Mecha Sonic, with the next six being Sonic, Sephiroth, Vergil, Vegeta, Mewtwo and Link.

    • Winter Soldier, through more lethal equipment and stats Nay 2D No. Winter Soldier fights Red Hood or he fights no one Winter Soldier
    • Gonna give it to Bucky. He has a far wider and deadlier arsenal, especially at long range, and his arm gives him superhuman stats. Tho...
  • Damian Wayne

    • Robin Royale that leads to the winner's most requested battle TMNT style
    • Takeda from Mortal Kombat X would be a good option too.
