** Batman decided that just in case he would be hanging people from random points in Arkham, he should bring in a large amount of rope to do so.
** He also has an apparently infinite supply of Batarangs at his disposal as well.



** If for whatever unlikely reason Batman should ever get kidnapped, he knows Robin will save him before too long. When Robin saves him in ''Harley Quinn's Revenge'', he only says "what took you so long?".

* In ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'', Batman and Robin run into Mr Freeze for the first time and slip on his ice. They then reveal that they had ice skates hidden in their boots, despite there being no possible reason for them to ever install/use them before Mr Freeze, who they didn't know about before he showed up.

** Alfred shows this too after learning [[spoiler:he has a fatal disease, sets his affairs in order by getting one of his family members to take over his duties at Wayne Manor. When his niece Barbra arrives, she ends up finding the batcave where a computer program Alfred wrote had contingencies in place should she find it and had constructed a batgirl suit that fit her perfectly]].

* Batman has attempted to be prepared in case of the inevitable superhero FaceHeelTurn, most notably in two infamous incidents. In the "Tower of Babel" arc of the Justice League comic, it was mainly confined to the League. The second was shortly after ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' where Batman decided to secretly tab '''every''' superhero/metahuman on Earth he could, so he built the Brother Eye program to monitor them. Both blew up in his face horribly (Ra's found and used the files and Brother Eye was hijacked by Max Lord and, later, [[ComicBook/LexLuthor Alexander Luthor]]). That being said, while they did indeed blow up in his face, they did so by incapacitating every member of the league, who all needed to be saved by the backup plans to THE BACKUP PLANS! Yes, indeed; Batman is so prepared, he even prepared for his contingency plans to get stolen.

* Lampshaded by Jaime Reyes, the ComicBook/BlueBeetle, in one of his teamups with Batman. An enemy has just ambushed them by essentially spawning an arctic blizzard ramped UpToEleven above them, causing them to get buried in a few meters of snow. After Beetle breaks out and stops the blizzard by scaring off their attacker...

** In the very first episode where bars of a window high above the ground needed to be welded, Batman told Robin not to drop them due to pedestrian safety. He then uses a bat-hanger to hang those bars.

* It's been confirmed that the long-awaited smackdown at the center of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' will involve Batman donning a suit of PoweredArmor in order to go toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel. [[spoiler: It's actually a huge subversion, as he is only able to just barely overpower Superman and had the fight gone on much longer, or if Superman was truly intending to take out Batman rather than talk the Dark Knight would have been soundly beaten.]]

* In the 1989 ''Film/{{Batman}}'' 1989 movie, the Batplane is outfitted with oversized scissor blades to cut the tethers of the poison-filled balloons in SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker's parade. Okay, but why would you have giant scissors at all if you didn't know you'd one day have to use them at a holiday parade?

* In ''Film/TheDarkKnight'', SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker was often [[UpToEleven even better prepared than Batman himself.]] It helps that he's both a MagnificentBastard and completely insane.

** The Riddler also had the foresight to plan ahead for Catwoman teaming up with Bats, strewing trophies and riddles around Arkham City for her as well. However it should be noted that most of her trophies are in much easier spots or even in traps set up, suggesting that he rushed to add them after finding out she was there.

* In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanUnderTheRedHood'' Nightwing is yet again Crazy Prepared. Of all the things to carry around in his utility belt, all the cool gadgets, and he just so happens to carry a staple gun with him. Because you never know when you might need to staple something!

** This was parodied in an episode of ''TheSimpsons'' where Krusty was a guest-villain in an old rerun of Batman. Krusty's plan was to spin Batman and Robin on a carousel so rapidly that they would apparently "blush themselves to death". Fortunately, Batman happened to have a can of Carousel Reversal Spray with him.
