Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine transports many of Batman's worst enemies to feudal Japan - along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies - including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family - to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City.

Did You Know?
The looks of Batman's villains are styled after those of Japanese historical characters, namely the feudal lords ('daimyo') whose province they are said to have taken over in this time-line:
- Penguin = Takeda Shingen.
- Poison Ivy = Uesugi Kenshin.
- Deathstroke = Date Masamune, well known for having an eye-patch.
- Two-Face = (a blend).
- Gorilla Grodd = Toyotomi Hideyoshi.
- Joker = Oda Nobunaga.
Isn't a gorilla eating a banana a little cliche?
