Bat-Mite also appeared in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold episodes "Legends of the Dark Mite", "Emperor Joker", "Bat-Mite Presents: Batman's Strangest Cases!" and the series finale, "Mitefall!", voiced by Paul Reubens. This version of Bat-Mite is powerful enough to regularly break the fourth wall and read to Batman his past, present and future exploits from real world comic books, and make fun of real-world comic convention fans.
He used the term "Breakout Character" in Mitefall, and when he wasn't coming off as an obnoxious fanboy, he seemed like he was emulating an obnoxious Troper.
- Does this mean Bat-Mite is the Tropes Are Not Good version of One of Us ?
- Yes. But also Tropes Are Not Bad, at least in his first episode.
- The term "Breakout Character" is older than this site. He does seem similar, but it's very possible it's just a coincidence.
