* AdaptationalAttractiveness:
** Creator/CillianMurphy is a considerably more attractive version of Jonathan Crane's original gaunt, long-faced look from the comics.
** Flass is an inversion, as in the film he is overweight and slobbish, whereas in the comics he was tall, blonde, well-built and tidy.

Added DiffLines:

* HorrifyingHero: Batman is ''really'' scary, especially when he first goes into action, hanging upside down to drop down on mooks, grabbing them from right next to their buddies, and scaring one guy so badly he screams. Ra's and the League of Shadows, however, are immune to this effect, as they are familiar with his tactics (they're the ones who trained him, after all).

** [[spoiler:Joe Chill's]] death seems like an homage to ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII, with the killer shouting "Falcone says hi!" while disguised as a journalist.

* DeadpanSnarker: Various characters show signs of this, though Lucius Fox is the most apparent, like his conversation with Bruce Wayne about the Nomex bulletproof survival suit.

* MythologyGag: Whilst being questioned by Batman, Crane throws out a line directly quoted from ''Batman: Haunted Knight.''
** Crane's method for widely distributing the fear toxin is through the pipes under Arkham Asylum, an approach the Scarecrow also used in the ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' episode ''Dreams in Darkness.''

* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[AllThereInTheManual According to the novelization]], [[spoiler:Ducard does not like the idea of using nuclear weapons to implement his plans, and at the start of the book it's clearly stated that he (or, at least, a predecessor in the role of Ra's) tricked Hitler into losing UsefulNotes/WorldWarII simply because he believed Hitler was too much of an extremist. Now, in ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane plans to destroy Gotham with a nuclear bomb, and [[FridgeBrilliance Bane's nuclear goals may have factored into his excommunication for excessive extremism...]]]]
