* BittersweetEnding: Organized crime in Gotham is in ruins, but through little effectual effort on the part of the heroes. In the process, Dent's life and reputation were completely destroyed. Worse still, this is essentially essentially the beginning of the rise of Batman's more colorful Rouge's Gallery to plague Gotham.

* EvilPowerVacuum: The comic heavily implies that Batman's deconstruction and elimination of "normal" organized crime like mob-bosses and the rise of the insane, colorful, and unpredictable super-villains isn't a coincidence. As Falcone's control over the city weakens, freaks like Scarecrow and Joker become more and more common.
