Notes

  • The episode titles "Night Rogue Rises" and "Dark Night Falls" are similar to the titles of various Batman movies, such as The Dark Knight Rises and The Dark Knight, further connecting the two main characters who both wear black bat costumes.
  • The content featured in the miniseries is much darker unlike the flashback shown in the TV series, which is due to the freedom this miniseries got as direct-to-video content as opposed to being aired on national television, which restricts certain content from being aired.
