* BrickJoke: When Bruce goes to Vicki's apartment, he's astonished by the size of it, noting that it has "lots of space". When the Joker appears a few minutes later, he too is impressed, also saying "lots of space."

* TalkingToTheDead: The Joker does this to Antoine Rotelli's fried corpse shortly after dismissing the mob summit (He was the one who murdered Rotelli with a joy buzzer.), and he apparently is "told" by Rotellei's corpse to "grease" the mob bosses immediately, to which Joker complies and responds "You are such a vicious bastard, Rotelli, and I'm glad you're dead" before laughing hysterically.

* ThatManIsDead: Used in the reveal of the Joker's face. "Jack is dead, my friend. You can call me... Joker. And as you can see, I'm a whole lot happier." The original line was a lot more blunt and angrier, with the Joker stepping out of the shadows and shouting, [[PrecisionFStrike "DO I LOOK LIKE FUCKING JACK?!"]]

* PragmaticAdaptation: Having The Joker (rather than Joe Chill) kill Batman's parents arguably makes this the most personal the grudge between the two has ever been. Also, Batman uses much more violent methods, and doesn't hew to the comic version's ThouShaltNotKill stance - but come ''Film/BatmanForever'', and he gives Dick Grayson a powerful yet understated speech about why using lethal force on villains is morally wrong, speaking from experience.

An UsefulNotes/AcademyAward deservedly went to Anton Furst's amazing set design, which was partly inspired by ''Film/BladeRunner'' and ''{{Film/Metropolis}}'', and became just as influential as those films in dystopic set design.

* CelebrityParadox: Just ''barely'' averted in the museum scene, when the Joker and his men are playing Prince's "Partyman" on their boombox. As anyone who saw the music video for that song could tell you, there's a break in the lyrics in which a Kim Basinger lookalike lip-syncs the Vicki Vale line [[ItMakesSenseInContext "Oh, I]] ''[[ItMakesSenseInContext love]]'' [[ItMakesSenseInContext purple!"]] The tape player is switched to Percy Faith's "A Summer Place" as the Joker sits down across from Vicki; if it had been left on the Prince song just a few seconds longer, Vicki would have heard herself delivering a line from the movie that (in-universe) she has yet to speak!

* AdaptationOriginConnection: It turns out that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is, in fact, the man who killed Bruce Wayne's parents rather than Joe Chill. * AdaptedOut: [[spoiler: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker is the killer of Bruce Wayne's parents, rather than Joe Chill, the man who shot them in the original comic books. Though some think Jack's partner in the flashback was Chill (it's probably Bob, given that the guy looks and sounds like him).]]

[[note]]The fact the father is called "Harold" and he acts like a wide-eyed tourist and not a millionaire clues people that they're not the Waynes.[[/note]]
