The film's name and character designs are taken from Mattel's toy line.[6] As such, several releases of the video include a small "Bat-Flyer" toy that can be used with the Batman figures from the line. (Said toy is pictured above for the special Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital release.)


It was followed by a sequel, Batman Unlimited: Monster Mayhem, which was released on August 18, 2015, and 22 short cartoons. A mobile application was released as well.[7]
