Injustice: Gods Among Us Nightwing Moves, Combos and Strategy Guide

Dick Grayson aka Nightwing is the first ever Robin that Batman had by his side. That is exactly why he is the most popular Robin of all time. Some people, including me, consider him to be the true heir to the mantle of Batman. At one-point Dick did put on the cowl and cape and shouldered the heavy responsibility of being Batman for a while.

However, since then Dick has gone and made himself his own identity as Nightiwing. Trained by Batman Nightwing fights crime on his own these days and serve as a role model to younger super heroes.
Since he was trained by the caped crusader, you can be sure that he knows more than a few decent moves. Besides that, his early childhood in the circus made sure that Dick had great balance and agility which he utilizes well in the arena.
