* DeathByAdaptation: The original Tally Man survived the story and even cameoed in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis'' and Gilda Dent's post-''ComicBook/TheLongHalloween'' wasn't shown, though a woman claiming to be her during Dick Grayson's second Batman tenure appeared (but Dick doubt it was her). The novelization depicts Two-Face killing the original Tally Man and mentions Gilda Dent as having died sometime before the story.

* BenevolentBoss: Penguin. He takes in anyone who wants to work for him, makes sure they have plenty of food and can survive, and runs a business trading food for [[WorthlessYellowRocks priceless valuables]], as he knows Gotham will eventually be reinstated and he and his employees will have plenty of money and treasure. Outside of the time he got several henchmen killed [[BullyingADragon while trying to threaten Lex Luthor]], his faction's mortality rate is surprisingly low compared to everyone else.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Two-Face ''really'' hates the Joker.
** Joker can't find anything funny about his latest, most heinous crime: [[spoiler:murdering Sarah Essen Gordon in front of dozens of babies that he planned to kill]].

* HonorBeforeReason: Jim Gordon and the rest of the GCPD loyalists/''Blue Boys''. Leave the city, especially when the US government tells any and all Gothamites still alive to get out of Dodge? Nuts to that!

* HurricaneOfPuns: The aftermath of Robin's battle with Mr. Freeze in the sewers lends itself to a particularly groan-worthy (but [[NarmCharm fun]]) one that would make [[Film/BatmanAndRobin Ahnold]] wince.

** Jim Gordon's WhatTheHellHero speech to Batman reveals another wrinkle: no other police force wants him in their city, not even the ones that have other superheroes, because they don't want someone who needs an [[Franchise/{{Batman}} urban legend]] to do their policework for them.

* NoFEMAResponse: After two outbreaks of a horrific genetically engineered plague virus are followed by a devastating earthquake that smashes Gotham City flat, the government (influenced by covert supervillain activity) decides that any further aid and reconstruction would just be throwing good money after bad and orders the city evacuated and left to rot. Anyone refusing to leave is no longer their problem. Gotham is left to the mercies of the Arkham inmates, criminal organizations, and street gangs for over a year, and the government actually goes so far as to declare Gotham to no longer be part of the American territory ([[ArtisticLisenceLaw something that's not possible under the US Constitution]]) and shot down any attempts to bring relief aid to the people who insisted on staying! And Metropolis, a city that had similarly been extensively damaged by Lex Luthor shortly before, was fixed magically (by ''Gotham native'' ComicBook/{{Zatanna}}) but nothing was done to restore Gotham (until, ironically, Luthor paid for the repairs to get the publicity that got him elected President).

* CardCarryingVillain: Most of the big villains except [[AntiVillain Two-Face]], including Luthor and everyone's favorite clown. Poison Ivy [[VillainousValor averts it]] with her [[spoiler: Robinson Park orphans]] and the Penguin's more neutral than anything.

** The Quakemaster's first appearance in the story has him directly stating that he will "burn Gotham to the ground." This contradicts his later appearances where [[spoiler:he deliberately avoids using any words with the letter "b" in them and pulls a noticeable LastSecondWordSwap whenever he nearly does, because the Ventriloquist always pronounces "b" as "g" instead, and this is how Robin is able to deduce that he is really another puppet that Wesker is using.]]
