* SavedByThePlatformBelow: On top of the cathedral when Batman and Vicki Vale peer over the edge to see if the Joker had truly fallen, only to be pulled over themselves by the Joker who had been hanging from the ledge. Can often be when the Big Bad is NotQuiteDead.

** He didn't start killing until after he found out the Joker killed his parents. His first scene plays the trope straight. Any mentions of him killing prior, borderlined on UrbanLegend.

*** To be fair he didn't kill anyone before learning it was Joker that [[spoiler: killed his parents]](even attempting to save Jack during the Axis chemicals scene near the beginning) after that point, he starts offing goons left and right.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: Well, it's not ''[[BittersweetEnding completely]]'' [[BittersweetEnding happy]], since Batman, as the next movie reveals, is once again alone and ''nobody'' gets the girl - but everything still ends on a pretty high note for a story otherwise [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism so firmly on the cynical end of the spectrum]].

* AntiHero: Batman is not a stranger to this trope, but unlike most other incarnations, Burton's Batman has no problem with ''killing'' a mook.

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.

Sequels included ''Film/BatmanReturns,'' ''Film/BatmanForever,'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin.''

* DangerousPhlebotinumInteraction: The key element of Joker's BrandX stunt is that the police are trying to figure out which particular product he's tainted; this is a wild goose chase because he's tainted ''hundreds'' of chemicals that other companies use for their products, all with chemicals that are harmless by themselves and therefore untraceable -- but cause one to DieLaughing when used together, similar to how mixing bleach with ammonia produces chlorine gas.

* DeathByIrony: "Sometimes I just kill myself!" is indeed the ''very'' poor choice of words for the Joker to utter prior to getting a escape via helicopter ladder and to plummet back to earth whilst being weighed down by a heavy granite gargoyle statue (courtesy of Batman firing a grappling hook around the Joker's leg to the statue).

''Batman'' also revolutionized the home video industry -- it was the first financially successful film to be released for the home market ''the same year'' as its theatrical release and only $19.99. It became a stocking stuffer in many homes that Christmas and went on to earn $150 million on home video alone. Now, even blockbuster hits are released in home video as soon as their theatrical runs are over (sometimes even ''before'' they end).
