Three years after saving the Lego Universe with Emmet 
and Wyldstyle, Batman continues fighting crime in Gotham 
City. During a mission to prevent the Joker from destroying 
the city, Batman hurts his arch-rival's feelings by telling 
him he is not as important in his life as he thinks he is, 
leading Joker to seek the ultimate revenge on him.
The following day, Batman attends the city's winter gala 
as his alter ego Bruce Wayne to celebrate the retirement of 
Commissioner Gordon and the ascension of his daughter Barbara 
as the Gotham City Police Department's new police commissioner, 
but is infuriated when she announces her plans to restructure 
the city's police to function without the need of Batman. The 
Joker crashes the party with the rest of Gotham City's villains, 
but has all of them surrender to the police. Despite realizing 
that this makes him no longer relevant to the city's safety, 
Batman suspects his arch-rival is up to something and decides 
to stop him by banishing him into the Phantom Zone, a prison 
for some of the most dangerous villains in the Lego multiverse.
As he plots to steal Superman's Phantom Zone Projector, 
Alfred intervenes and advises him to take charge of Dick Grayson, 
whom Bruce had unwittingly adopted as his ward during the gala, 
to which he eventually agrees and fosters Dick as Robin. The 
pair manage to recover the Projector from the Fortress of 
Solitude, before breaking into Arkham Asylum and using it on 
the Joker. Annoyed at his recklessness and suspecting that Joker 
wanted this to happen, Barbara locks up Batman and Robin. While 
the Projector is being seized as evidence, Harley Quinn steals 
it back and uses it to free the Joker as she did not surrender 
to the police as part of the Joker's plan. Afterwards, Joker 
unleashes the villains trapped within the Phantom Zone to cause 
havoc upon Gotham including Lord Voldemort, King Kong, Sauron, 
the Wicked Witch of the West, Medusa, Agent Smith and his clones, 
the Daleks, the Gremlins, and the Kraken.
Realizing that the city does still need him, Barbara releases 
Batman and Robin and reluctantly teams up with them to stop the Joker, 
with the team joined by Alfred. Batman soon finds himself able to 
trust and rely on the others, allowing them to defeat Sauron, but 
upon reaching Wayne Island, he prevents the team from joining him 
in action, out of fear of losing them like his parents; he confronts 
Joker alone. Believing Batman to be incapable of change, Joker zaps 
him to the Phantom Zone, before stealing the Batcave's stash of 
confiscated bombs and heading for the city's Energy Facility. Arriving 
in the Phantom Zone, Batman witnesses the harm his selfishness has 
caused to everyone, and slowly accepts his greatest fear when Robin, 
Barbara and Alfred decide to come to his aid. Making a deal with the 
Phantom Zone's gatekeeper, Phyllis, to bring back all the villains in 
exchange for returning to Gotham City, Batman arrives to save the trio 
and apologizes, requesting their help to save the day.
With Joker planning to detonate the bombs beneath the Energy 
Facility, causing the plates beneath Gotham to come apart and drop 
the city into the infinite abyss, Batman turns Barbara into Batgirl, 
and alongside Alfred and Robin, team up with Gotham's other villains, 
who felt neglected by Joker, allowing them to successfully send the 
escaped villains back to the Phantom Zone. However, Batman fails to 
stop the bombs from detonating, causing the city to split apart. 
Batman reluctantly convinces Joker that he is the reason for being 
the hero he is, and working together alongside Batman's friends, the 
villains, and the city's inhabitants, chain link themselves together, 
reconnecting the city's plates.
With the city saved, Batman prepares to be taken back into the 
Phantom Zone to fulfill his bargain, only to be rejected by Phyllis, who 
chooses to let him remain after seeing how much he had changed in order 
to save everyone. Batman allows Joker and the rest of his rogues gallery 
to temporarily escape, with the confidence that whenever they return, 
they will be no match for the combined team of himself, Robin, Batgirl, 
and Alfred.
