Barbara/Bruce is a het pairing in the Batman fandom featuring Barbara Gordon and Bruce Wayne.


The pairing mainly appears in the DCAU (particularly in the works of Bruce Timm who ships the two), where it was briefly implied that Barbara Gordon had a crush on Bruce which feelings might have been returned. Batman Beyond comics canonized the pairing in the universe.[1] The Batman: The Killing Joke film canonized the pairing, with the two sleeping together.

Some Batman fans squick at the pairing due to the age gap.[2] This is probably why the pairing is so rare, most reactions of the pairing are negative online.

Fanfiction is mostly posted to Archive of Our Own, before that LiveJournal was used.
