|Ra's al Ghul|
|Real name:||Ra's al Ghul|
|Portrayed by:||David Warner|
|Appearances:|| Off Balance|
The Demon's Quest Part I
The Demon's Quest Part II
Ra's al Ghul makes his first appearance at the very end of the episode Off Balance. This would set the stage for his subsequent appearances — each as the episode's primary villain. In the two-part episode The Demon's Quest, Ra's adapts his attempts from the comic books to make Batman his heir and then to cleanse the world of an "imperfect" humanity. In the episode Avatar he makes an attempt at true immortality using his Lazarus Pit.
The episode Showdown, portrays a long-ago fight with Jonah Hex, who also battles Ra's deranged son Arkady Duvall. Due to Jonah Hex besting Arkady, Ra's was forced to abandon Arkady. It took Ra's several years to locate Arkady until now, when Batman and Robin catch up with Ra's al Ghul at an airport. He revealed that the old man is his son Arkady Duvall. As Arkady's mind and body were beyond the Lazarus Pit's power to mend, Batman let Ra's take his dying son with him so that he can be there for his son's last hours.
