* ChangingClothesIsAFreeAction: Nygma's has four different Riddler costumes over the course of the film: green suit w/ bowler, green spandex, black jacket with light-up question marks, and silver-and-glitter bodysuit based on 1970's Music/DavidBowie (with a question mark in place of the lightning bolt); even his hairstyle keeps changing color and length, beginning with wacky EinsteinHair before progressing a flattop (switching intermittently with a GQ haircut like Wayne's), and then back to a longer, electrified 'do reminiscent of [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Gozer the Gozerian.]] The last two costume/hairstyle combos occur minutes apart during the climax.

* ImprobableHairstyle: "Spice" channels the Bride of Frankenstein by way of [[MarriedWithChildren Peg Bundy]]. She even has HairAntennae, quite a feat for live-action.

*** Though it is notable that he makes no effort to try catching him, either via grabbing or grapnel. He might have been out of grapnel lines after his final rescue, but you'd think Batman would at least try a lunging grab.

After the release of ''Film/BatmanReturns'', Creator/WarnerBros was in something of a difficult position. While they wanted to wallpaper their holiday mansions with $100 bills and ''{{Franchise/Batman}}'' was the franchise to bet on, the extremely dark storyline of ''Film/BatmanReturns'' made it a harder sell to the intended audience, namely entire families. By now, they wanted something different for the next film, limiting Creator/TimBurton to the role of producer and hiring JoelSchumacher to take over directing duties. And for good or for ill, '''''Batman Forever''''' was certainly different.
