I know of Nightwing, Batgirl and Red Robin.

Dick Grayson become's Nightwing and also Red Robin in an alternate reality I think.

Barbara Gordon is Batgirl.

Do anymore of Batman's friends/allies become superheroes?

    I assume we're ignoring all the Robins? Because there are like a thousand of those little suckers... – Nerrolken Aug 18 '15 at 20:35

    And are you looking for individual characters, or superhero identities? Because many (most?) characters have held multiple superhero identities, and many (most?) superhero identities have been held by multiple people. – Nerrolken Aug 18 '15 at 20:38

    @Nerrolken Just the individual heroes if that's ok? I know there's been a few Batgirls so I wouldn't really want Batgirl 1 and Batgirl 2 and so on... So Batgirl, Batlad, Batnephew, etc would be great! – Ingu Shama Aug 18 '15 at 20:40

    ...and that's how @PaulD.Waite became my hero. – Nerrolken Aug 19 '15 at 13:09

Off the top of my head (and I'll expand this list as I find them):

There are also a substantial number of heroes who were recruited and supported by Batman, despite having existed independently before his involvement, and several hero-esque characters who never adopted superhero identities, like Alfred or Lucius Fox or Jim Gordon.

And, of course, out-of-universe, there are probably hundreds of heroes who were created for Batman storylines, without having been created by Batman/Wayne in-universe.

    Very cool! Batman Incorporated is actually a thing? Brilliant! – Ingu Shama Aug 18 '15 at 20:44

    I would add Oracle! And Carrie Kelley's Catgirl. And maybe Spoiler. – Splitting Adam Aug 18 '15 at 20:46

    Huntress, especially the Helena Wayne versions. – Politank-Z Aug 18 '15 at 20:54
