This is general information about production inconsistences, mistakes and external references related to the episode Night of the Ninja from season one of Batman: The Animated Series.

  • During the training scene, it can be seen that Bruce Wayne is a black belt, while Dick is only a green belt.
  • A sub plot, or B story, is Dick's attempt to try and gain some recognition and more respect from Bruce, something Bruce\Batman is not known for. Trying, for example, in the training session, which appears to be a belt test he requested from Bruce, to prove he is worthy of a rank higher then a green belt. Also, attempting to get a thank you from Bruce for saving his life, from the ninja on the rooftop Wayne Enterprises' building. This sort of happens in the end as Bruce tells Dick, at the end of the episode during breakfast that it would have been difficult maybe even almost, Impossible for him to defeat the ninja without Dick's help. Dick receives this almost thank you with a smile, knowing how difficult just getting this out of Bruce is. This sub plot also seems to hint at their falling out as partners, that would come years later, due to Bruce's tendency to for get about the emotions of people that work with him.
