** Before doing so, he explains that it's been a long time since he's had to take down a Green Beret. So he's not concerned that he has to fight someone with such training, only that he might be a little rusty since the ''[[NoodleIncident last time]]'' he had to whip one.

* Batman's first salvo against the mob's upper echelons also qualifies. They're sitting down to dinner, talking about how Batman isn't a threat. So far, all he's done is take down low level mooks, not something that concerns them, and that since it makes the people feel safe, they think that he might be a good thing to have around, and how the real problems are Harvey Dent and Jim Gordon. Batman proceeds to cut the lights, blow up the outer wall and give this {{Badass}} speech to the now terrified gangsters:

* A small one, but an awesome point has to be given to the young DA, [[ComicBook/TwoFace Harvey something or other]], for refusing to cave to pressure from the corrupt Gotham PD…[[spoiler: and making himself a clandestine ally of the Batman as well.]]

* Throughout the early acts of the book, Gordon has done a grand job of telling us that his crooked partner, detective Flass, is [[InformedAbility a Green Beret,]] and that fighting him would probably be a dumb choice. So when Gordon looks for payback, he ''[[RefugeInAudacity tosses Flass a baseball bat]]'', and ''[[{{HSQ}} destroys Flass.]]''

** This entire showdown with the Gotham PD under Brendon and Loeb's ill-conceived direction, ending with Batman kicking all of their collective asses, is among the highlights of the story. It also boasts [[spoiler: the first (and so far, limited) appearance of Batman's sonic wave emitter summoning a swarm of bats]]. You know this is awesome when ''Film/BatmanBegins'' pitched it as one of its key scenes.

It is the moment that Batman changes in the public's eye from a crazy vigilante to the Dark Knight that no evildoer is a match for.

* Just the fact that they got BryanCranston to voice Gordon in the Animated Adaptation is enough to be its own example.
