* OnlyThePureOfHeart: The Fountaion of Life, which Ra's considers to be the source of the Lazarus Pit is one such artifact, as despite being warned that he can't touch it and his intention to taint it, when he ends up in it during his fight with Batman, he's destroyed while Batman is healed of the injuries the Sensei inflicted on him.

** Also in Batman 666, which introduced Professor Pyg long before his present-day debut in ''Batman: Reborn''. Also in the same issue, Damian claims he was never as good as Bruce or Dick, implying that Dick would also become Batman.

** Batman's description of the "ultimate villain" in ''Batman'' #674 mentions this hypothetical foe possessing "access to allies, weapons, and tactics [Batman] couldn't imagine" as well as being "[a]n adversary whose plots and grand designs were so vast, so elaborate, that they went unnoticed." While this sets up the Black Glove and [[spoiler: Dr. Hurt]], it also sounds suspiciously like a description of [[spoiler: Darkseid, who turns out to be the Greater Scope Villain of Batman RIP and The Return of Bruce Wayne.]] Likewise, the devil imagery effectively sets up [[spoiler: the Religion of Crime, as well as Darkseid's traditional role as the archfiend of the DC Universe.]]

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: Batman's been buried alive by the Black Glove, who plan to let him suffocate just long enough to leave him brain damaged so they can keep him as a pet. Batman digs himself out within minutes, delivering possibly the greatest monologue in Batman history.
--> '''Batman''': "206 bones, five major organs, 60,000 miles of blood vessels. All it takes is time. Days. Months. Years, spent memorizing the finite ways there are to hurt and break a man. Preparing for all of them. I've escaped from every conceivable deathtrap. Ten times. A dozen times. I can slow my breathing and metabolism to control panic and conserve air. Straitjacket's kindergarden. Locks, too. Benchpressing a pine coffin lid through 600 pounds of loose soil that's filling your mouth, crushing your lungs flat and shredding your dehydrated muscles? That's harder. *Batman bursts out of the ground* But far from impossible."

** [[ZigZaggedTrope Zig Zagged]] withLord Death Man, a villain from Japan in ''Batman, Inc.'' While he is identified with [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Batman_Vol_1_180 the earlier villain "Death Man,"]] he's far more closely based on the version who appeared in the 1960s licensed ''Manga/{{Batman}}'' manga, but had become a BreakoutVillain in the US fandom when selections of the manga were translated into English and published in the US in 2008. At the end of the second issue, after [[spoiler:Jiro has become Batman Japan]], we also see Professor Gorilla, another one of the original villains from the manga. (Who was also loosely based on a one-off villain from [[http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Detective_Comics_Vol_1_339 an earlier American comic.]])

* HealingSpring: Not only are the Lazarus Pits featured, but so is the Fountain of Life, a fountain in Nanda Parbat that Ra's al Ghul believes to be a prototype version of the Pits. It also helps restore Batman after the Sensei breaks him arm and blinds him.



* HijackedByGanon: Doctor Hurt and Doctor Dedalus have both claimed credit for Professor Pyg's current status as a mad scientist villain.

* VictoryByEndurance: During ''The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul'', Batman foguht the Sensei, who had centuries more experience. Despite not landing a blow during the fight, the damage the Sensei did, and Sensei's taunt that he wouldn't last a minute, Batman manages to make the Sensei sweat and outlast him.

* BackFromTheDead: ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul]]'', after Creator/GregRucka killed him off in ''Death and the Maidens''.



* EvilAlbino: Dusan, the White Ghost and an aide to Ra's. [[spoiler: It's his condition that caused Ra's to disown him as he's also Ra's's son.]]



* GrandTheftMe: Since Batman cremated Ra's al Ghul's body after his death in ''Death and the Maiden'', when his spirit comes back, he takes over a few bodies before [[spoiler: settling on Dusan, the son he disowned]].



* RaceLift: There is a trio of obscure female Batman villains from back in the 1960's named Tiger Moth, Silken Spider, and Dragon Fly. In their first (and for several decades, ONLY) appearance, all three women were white. When they finally reappeared 40 years later during ''The Resurrection of Ra's Al Ghul'' storyline, Silken Spider was now shown to be black, while Dragon Fly was Asian-American.
