* ParodyCommercial: After the Deadline News incident listed above, the Joker hijacks the airwaves with this to reveal himself as responsible for the Smilex deaths, and to cheerily inform Gotham that more people are doomed because they're already unknowingly using the tainted products. ("And hair color so natural only your undertaker knows for sure!") He even spoofs the BrandX trope to prove his point.

-->I know what you're saying: "Where can I get these fine new items?" Well that's the gag. Chances are, you've bought 'em already!

* YouHaveFailedMe: After Batman foils the Joker's balloon plan with his Batwing, the Joker kills Bob because Bob didn't tell him that Batman had it (as if he could have possibly known!).
** He probably just shot him out of anger.

---> '''Gordan:''' Oh, my God...

** Finally, there's the climactic (pun sort of intended) scene involving Vicki slutting it up for the Joker on the cathedral roof to [[WeNeedADistraction distract him from Batman sneaking up behind him]]. Right after "I looove purple", she sinks to her knees directly facing the Joker...and the only possible explanation is that she's trying to make him think she's about to pull down his pants and blow him. The look of what can only be called pre-coital ecstasy on the Joker's face all but confirms this.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Justified, as Vicki is wearing high heels and the situation she was in made ditching them prudent. She also winds up shoeless at the film's climax, and also removes her shoes while on her date with Bruce. The RealLife reason for this was that Kim Basinger is only a little shorter than Michael Keaton. Combined with the fact that her character continually wears high heels throughout the film, Batman would end up looking comically short when standing next to her, hence it was necessary to have her lose the heels in certain scenes. (However, see TheissTitillationTheory for another take on this.)

Added DiffLines:

* CorruptCop: Naturally in Gotham, and they're all led by Eckhardt. However they're not ''all'' corrupt and an honest cop is able to inform Gordon about Eckhardt's plans to murder Napier.


Added DiffLines:

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Batman drops Jack Napier into that vat of chemical, which turns him into the Joker which makes him responsible for the subsequent murders,


Added DiffLines:

* SpannerInTheWorks:
** The cop who tells Gordon about Eckhardt trying to kill Napier at Axis Chemicals.
** Batman of all people. By showing up at Axis Chemicals and dropping Jack Napier into that vat of chemicals, he ruins the police's best chance of building a solid case against Grissom's gang.

* AxCrazy: The Joker, as usual. Though the film implies that Jack Napier was at least a little crazy to begin with, seeing his disfigurement is what really snaps him.

* DiesWideOpen: This happens to anyone who is affected by the Smylex chemical in the poisoned beauty products, and it also includes the Joker's grin, as a pair of models and a news reporter demonstrate. [[spoiler:This also happens to the Joker when we see his body in the pavement at the end of the film.]]



* DirtyCop: Lt. Eckhardt, who is on Grissom's payroll.

* DirtyCop: Lt. Eckhardt, who is on Grissom's payroll. He doesn't last long before Napier nails him in the factory.
