Damian Wayne is the son of Bruce Wayne, he appears as Nightwing in the present reality of Injustice: Gods Among Us, having accidentally killed Dick Grayson, the previous Nightwing, which caused his betrayal after Batman discarded him from being his son. Unlike the versions when he was Robin, this version is very dark and a lot more vindictive, despite having a bit of his counterpart's good side when he did cared about the late-Dick (now as the new Deadman after the original Deadman's spirit passed away and being the one who gave Damian his old Nightwing equipment as a birthday present) and Alfred (before the latter was killed by Zsasz). He sides with Superman's One-Earth Regime in the parallel dimension, the man who responsible for sending Zsasz into killing Alfred to manipulate Damian as his pawn in the earlier 5 years later.
He later returned in Injustice 2, with Robin as his default outfit.
He is voiced by Neal McDonough in the first game, then by Scott Porter in the second game.
Damian first appears crashing into Joker's Asylum, quickly knocking out several Joker Clan goons. After the Clown Prince of Crime himself managed to defeat Hawkgirl, Damian tried to charge at the Joker but is repelled by the clown's razor sharp cards. Before the two fought, Joker notes him siding with Superman over Batman (, he didn't know that he was talking to Damian Wayne, and not Dick Grayson). To which Damian replied by calling his father a criminal, just like the Joker. The two battle, but Damian ends up getting defeated by Joker. Before the Joker can get a chance to finish him off, the Insurgents arrive and Hawkgirl grabs Damian and retreats.
At Stryker's Island, when Batman's Insurgency is starting an attack to save the prime universe's Batman, Nightwing encounters Green Arrow. Green Arrow, thinking that this version of Nightwing is Dick Grayson, tried to reason with him until the parallel universe's Batman revealed that Nightwing is Damian Wayne, who killed Dick Grayson and took his identity. Batman states that he stopped being his son after that and that Dick Grayson was his true son. After defeating Nightwing, Batman said that he's "dead to him." After Superman's defeat at the hands of the prime universe's Superman, Nightwing, along with other Regime allies got arrested.
In his Classic Battle ending, after defeating Superman, Nightwing realizes that he is capable of anything and challenges anyone who gets in his path. Seeing his ability to inspire fear in others, Nightwing is chosen by a yellow power ring and is recruited into the Sinestro Corps.
Damian, as Robin is seen in the prequel chapter several years ago during the first game's prequel events. It will explain how he defects his father and joins Superman's Regime, and somehow retconning his killing on Alfred's murderer, Zsasz.
In Batman's prequel chapter parts, Robin is first seen aiding his father to find Superman in Cellblock C of Arkham Asylum, but later defects him as Robin kills Zsasz and accuse his father for letting Jason Todd, and Superman's family Lois and their unborn son died by someone dangerous as Joker's hand, and Damian claim that he himself was raised League of Assassins as an assassin, different than his father's ideal of without killing on fighting crimes.
In a recent chapter's present time, he is still Nightwing and was freed by the Regime (assisted by a newly recruit Supergirl), along with Cyborg during Brainiac and Society's reign, until Batman stops the conflict and made an uneasy alliance with the Regime to stop Brainiac and the Society, thus freeing Superman. He is last seen beaten by Supergirl when she is about leave in broken heart after learning how the Regime heroes have fallen 5 years ago, but must deal with Brainiac before the arguing start again first.
After his father Batman sacrifices himself to protect Damian allowing him to deliver the final blow to Brainiac. Now with an appreciation of what their family's symbol truly means, Damian decides to carry on his father's legacy as the new Batman.
- Although represented in the game as Nightwing, Damian is called by most of the players by his own name. In the sequel he appears as Robin in default appearance.
- Damian Wayne is probably the most hated character of Injustice: Gods Among Us if not the present version of Superman, probably due to his betrayal to Batman, or the fact that he did not mean to kill the original Nightwing, Dick Grayson, blindly misguided by the corrupted Superman into his pawn who had sent Zsasz to kill Alfred behind Damian's back to make Damian even furthermore dishonoring Batman when Damian killed Alfred's murderer Superman had sent in a fitting rage without realizing this whole scheme. In Injustice 2 Damian took back the Robin identity for prequel chapters only, along with the explanation how he became Nightwing the prequel of the first game and manage to get some positive ratings, and most importantly that he is not as brutal as Jason Todd.
