Biography

Regime (as Nightwing)

Damian Wayne, son of Bruce Wayne, inherited his father's temper and lack of tolerance. Joining the One Earth regime, Damian killed Dick Grayson and later adopted his Nightwing persona.

Injustice 2 (as Robin and Nightwing )

Raised from birth by the League of Assassins, Damian Wayne has always struggled with Batman’s non-lethal code of honor. Now in direct opposition with his father, Damian seeks a new mentor in Superman -- whom he considers to be more of a father than Batman ever was.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

In the five years between Superman's rise to power and the events of the main game, Damian caused the death of Dick Grayson and claimed the mantle of Nightwing for himself, working with the One Earth Goverment and hunting all criminals with extreme prejudice.

As Nightwing, Damian first appears crashing into Joker's Asylum, quickly knocking out several Joker Clan goons before spotting the Clown Prince of Crime himself standing over the defeated Hawkgirl. Seeing his chance, he charges the Joker but is repelled by the clown's razor sharp cards. When Joker notes him siding with Superman over Batman, Damian only calls his father a criminal, just like the Joker. The two battle, but Damian is defeated. Before the Joker can finish him off, the Insurgents arrive and Hawkgirl grabs Damian and retreats.

Damian is not seen again until the Insurgents attack on Stryker's, joining Catwoman to assault both his father and the alternate Green Arrow. While Catwoman battles Bruce, Damian duels with Green Arrow, who angrily demands to know why he joined with Superman, believing this Nightwing to be Dick Grayson. When Damian reveals his identity, his father deflects one of his attacks and explains his son's murder of Dick Grayson before he stole his identity. Damian makes it clear Superman was more of a father to him than Batman ever was, but Bruce doesn't care, telling Damian he is not his son.

Father and prodigal son then battle, but Batman proves his superiority over his son, and bests him. As Bruce stands over Damian, he declares Dick was his son and that Damian is dead to him.

Damian is seen again in the siege of Gotham.

In the epilogue, he is last seen being arrested along with Superman's other supporters.

Injustice 2

In a flashback, Damian first appears as Robin accompanying Batman on the way to Arkham Asylum via the Batplane. Damian expresses confusion over Batman's concern for the inmates, stating that they were "the worst of the worst." After Batman explains Superman's plan of executing the inmates, Damian calls the plan justice, with Batman reminding him that killing people isn't justice, and stating how Superman can't see it and needs time to heal. When Damian questions what would happen to Batman if Gotham was destroyed, and Damian was killed by the Joker, he gets no response, unsurprised.

As the two approach Arkham Asylum, the Batplane suddenly shifts to autopilot and attempts to divert back to the Batcave. In response, Batman and Damian eject, and proceed to glide into Arkham. However, Cyborg (who was interfering with the Batplane) fired off a warning shot toward the duo, throwing Damian off course and causing him to crash onto a nearby roof. Damian appears after Batman defeats Cyborg, and sarcastically tells Batman he's fine after Batman tells him to improve his gliding skills, and the two proceeds to grapple to the Asylum.

After Batman and Damian subdue the guards at the Asylum, Damian questions how Batman is unwilling to kill, but is fine with dealing traumatic brain injuries. In response, Batman orders him to secure the loading docks.

Later, Damian eavesdrops Batman and Superman's argument behind a column, and calls out when the red solar grenade explodes between the two.

As Batman prepares to subdue a weakened Superman, Damian captures Victor Zsasz and presents him to the two heroes. Damian questions the psychopath on the number of victims he's killed, and when Zsasz tells him that he killed 121 people, Damian tells Batman that Zsasz sounds incorrigible to him. When Batman orders him to let Zsasz go, Damian retorts that Batman would rather fight his enemies than confronting the real problem. When Batman warns him while calling him son, Damian, enraged, forces Zsasz onto his knees, states that Batman didn't raise him and the League of Assassins did, and executes the psychopath. When Batman, furious, crosses toward Damian for "crossing the line," Damian attacks him.

After Damian is defeated, he rejects Batman's apology and calls him a coward, questions if Batman thinks he's better than Superman, and proceeds to rant that Batman let the Joker keep killing and couldn't save Lois, Jason, or anyone. Superman calms down Damian, and when Damian protests about the inmate situation, Superman states that today wasn't the time, and is taken by Superman. From that point onward, Damian cut all ties with his father and aligned himself with Superman.

In the meeting room, Damian and Black Adam are assigned to join Superman at the Fortress of Solitude in order to look at any potential weaknesses of Brainiac from the Kryptonian records. Unable to find anything, the trio are unexpectedly visited by Super Girl, who was astonished by Wonder Woman's ruthlessness against Harley Quinn and Cheetah. Upon learning of Superman's hand in killing Joker and the lies she's been told by Black Adam and Wonder Woman, Super Girl immediately leaves to inform Batman, Damian and Black Adam attempt to stop her, but are both defeated. After this defeat, he disappears completely from the story.

In his personal story, he remains by Superman's side when they defeat Brainiac. With Batman dead, Damian finally realizes what his father's message regarding Superman's brutality. Leaving Superman, Damian returns to Gotham to take his father's mantle.

Powers and Abilities

Injustice

Raised by the League of Assassins and further trained by both his father, Batman, and his ward, Nightwing, Damian Wayne models his fighting style after Dick's instead of Bruce's, combining his speed and athleticism for devastatingly fast attacks. Damian also uses much of the same weaponry as Nightwing, including escrima sticks able to combine into a staff, the sticks capable of channeling electricity for ranged attacks, and wingding Batarangs for long range striking. Unlike his father and Dick, Damian does little to restrain himself in a fight however, and will employ lethal force, making him slightly more dangerous, though this is impeded by his emotional instability, as he has not learned to control the anger he inherited from the Dark Knight.

Special Moves

  • WingDing (Air): Nightwing jumps into the air and throws several WingDings at his opponent. The Meter Burn version adds a third WingDing.
  • Ground Spark: Nightwing slams his escrimas together, creating an electric charge, and slams them on the ground, sending the charge at his opponent. The Meter Burn version releases a more powerful charge.
  • Escrima Fury: Nightwing unleashes a rapid combo of blows using his escrima sticks. The Meter Burn version adds more hits, the final blow knocking Nightwing's opponent into the air.
  • Flip Kick: Nightwing jumps into the air, and flips himself over, slamming his heels down on his opponent's head. The Meter Burn version has Nightwing slam his escrimas down on his opponent after the kick.
  • Scatter Bomb: Nightwing throws a small explosive into the air. The Meter Burn version increases the size of the explosion.
  • Staff Spin: With his escrima sticks combined into a staff, Nightwing twirls his staff rapidly before knocking his opponent away. The Meter Burn version adds an additional stronger hit at the end of the combo.
  • Ground Blast: With his escrima sticks combined, Nightwing slams the bottom of his staff against the ground, releasing an electric charge on his opponent. The Meter Burn version has Nightwing release a second, stronger charge.
  • Flying Grayson: Combining his escrimas into a staff, Nightwing uses it to propel himself forward in a sudden kick.

Character Trait

Style Change: Nightwing's character trait is the ability to change his weapon from Escrima Sticks to a Staff. This helps him deal with a large amount of situations and get an edge over power users. Nightwing can even switch in the middle of some combos and Special Attacks.

  • Escrima Sticks allow Nightwing to walk, dash and jump faster and farther for the cost of attack range.
  • Using the Staff fighting style increases the range of Nightwing's attacks at the cost of mobility.
  • Certain moves can be stance cancelled for new combo opportunities.

Other Moves

  • Grab: Nightwing runs up his opponent, knocking them over, and comes down slamming his knees into their shoulders and bashing their head with a doublefist slam.

Super Move

  • Dark as Night: Nightwing jumps onto his motorcycle and repeatedly slashes the opponent with electrified blades on his gauntlets. Nightwing then jumps off of his motorcycle to slam his electrified staff into his opponent's chest.

Endings

Injustice

Injustice Gods Among Us - Nightwing Ending 【HD】-200:40

Injustice Gods Among Us - Nightwing Ending 【HD】-2

Nightwing had beaten his former boss, Superman, in single combat. Not even Batman had done that. His thirst for conflict grew. He began challenging anyone who crossed his path. Nightwing's belligerence eventually drew the attention of Sinestro. His Corps was always in need of new recruits, and the young human seemed able to inspire great fear. Sinestro had his suspicions confirmed when a yellow power ring found its way onto Nightwing's finger.

Injustice 2

Bruce Wayne was my father, and it's no secret I hated him. But despite all that, he sacrificed himself to save me. Giving me the chance to stop Brainiac permanently. I was so obsessed with escaping the Bat's shadow... I never appreciated what the symbol really meant. Not until I saw it stained with my father's blood. My blood. The symbol is my legacy--a legacy of vengeance. My name is Damian Wayne. Son of Bruce, grandson of the Demon. I've been called Robin and Nightwing... But from now on, the world will know me as... Batman.

Costumes

Injustice

Robin

During the prequel comic, Damian wears a green domino mask over his face, bladed green gauntlets and green boots, a red tunic with the 'R' logo on his chest, the tunic is over a black armored bodysuit of similar design to Batman and Nightwings. He wears a yellow utility belt like theirs as well and a black cape with yellow inner linings.

Regime

In this costume, as Nightwing, Damian has longer hair, a smaller red emblem when compared to Dick's, matching shoulder guards, and a new set of metallic armor.

Trivia

  • Robin's mask can be seen in the background of Metropolis.
  • Damian joining the Sinestro Corps in his ending is a reference to the comics where his father received an invitation to join but rejected the ring. In an ironic twist, Damian accepts.
  • Victor Zsasz was killed in Arkham Asylum by Damian in as a way of him telling Batman he agreed with Superman.
  • Damian taking on the mantle of Batman after his fathers death in his ending is a reference to Batman #666 where he also takes the mantle of Batman after his fathers death.
    • Interesting enough Dick Grayson and Alfred are also dead in the comic.
