Batfamily is the informal name fandom uses for Batman and his allies and supporting characters, some of whom have at times appeared in their own titles. Often these characters are closely associated with Batman or were trained by him. The term is also used to differentiate between the greater DC Comics or team focused fandom and the fandom specifically focused on Batman and related characters. (See also Family vs. Team)
Most notably the "family" consists of Bruce Wayne and the boys he took in and trained as Robin and his butler Alfred Pennyworth as well as his dog, but also includes Batman inspired heroes like Batgirl and the Gotham based team Birds of Prey.
