"If you become more than just a man, you become...a "super-man"! No, that's not it... A legend! Yes, a legend!"
―Ra's al Ghul[src]

Ra's al Ghul is a villain that appeared in the LEGO Batman series and its spin-off, LEGO DC Super-Villains. The leader of the League of Shadows, Ra's al Ghul is practically immortal due to his use of and possession of the Lazarus Pits. Using them, he can maintain his age and recover from injuries, but at the cost of his sanity. His name is Arabic for "The Demon's Head". Ra's is also the father of Talia al Ghul and the grandfather of Batman's son, Damian Wayne.

History

LEGO Batman: The Videogame

Due to being a bonus character, Ra's al Ghul does not have any part in the main storyline. He is unlocked when the player gains 100%, and can then be bought for 500,000 studs.

LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes

Once again, Ra's al Ghul doesn't feature in the game's storyline but he can be found in the Open-World Gotham. Here he can be fought and unlocked as a playable character. This time, he uses his trademark sword.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham

Ra's al Ghul does not appear in the game, both within the story or as a unlockable character. However, the Nolanverse version is a playable character through the Dark Knight Trilogy DLC.

LEGO DC Super-Villains

Ra's makes a small appearance during the twelfth level of the main campaign. He and the League are sought out by Batman, Flash and Joker to help battle the forces of Apokolips. After the trio defeats Deathstroke and other members, Ra's promises his forces to help them. Ra's can be purchased after completing the level.
