Bruce/Harvey is the Batman slash pairing of Harvey Dent (Two-Face) and Bruce Wayne (Batman).


Many Bruce/Harvey fans originally began shipping the two characters following Batman: The Animated Series in the 1990s.[1]

Interest in this pairing was renewed following their interactions in The Dark Knight film. Harvey and Bruce have also appeared in video games, Batman: The Telltale Series and the Arkham series.

Despite the large amount of canon content featuring these two, this pairing has remained rare in the overall Batman Fandom.

Ship Appeal

There’s something tragically endearing about how much blind faith Bruce has in Harvey, even when he is in his most aggressive and self-destructive phases as Two Face. That faith, combined with the affection which Harvey seems to hold for his past friendship with Bruce and the fact that Bruce is ALWAYS willing and ready to help him when he is in need, is enough to draw me into their ship.

Harvey Dent is not a monster and Bruce Wayne is one of the few people who can understand that and I think there’s something beautiful in the potential of their relationship because of that.[2]
