* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Given his media-friendly gimmickry, outlandish hairstyle, and rough-and-tumble upbringing, it's little surprise that many viewers (both in 1992 and now) tend to interpret Max Shreck as a fictional DonaldTrump. In fact, Shreck's role as a political kingmaker in this movie eerily predicted what Trump would eventually become! In a HilariousInHindsight moment, Shreck even gets to bellow "You're fired!" at one point.

'''The Penguin:''' Ah. The direct approach. I admire that in a man with a mask! ''(chuckles, but then turns serious)'' You don't really think you'll ''win'', do you?\\

** You could argue that much of the plot hinges on this trope. The Gothamites (well, most of them) show unusual tolerance and understanding toward the Penguin...even though, deformity notwithstanding he gives them plenty of reasons not to. This just might be because they all have the warm fuzzies due to what time of year it is. (A deleted line even has one Gothamite remarking that [[TrueMeaningOfChristmas "He helps you remember the true meaning of the holiday."]]
** I wish I could hand out world peace, and unconditional love, [[InadvertentEntranceCue wrapped in a big bow]]."

* DoTheyKnowItsChristmasTime: Played with in a number of ways.
** The Mayor is saddened by the Red Triangle Gang's urban destruction and consoles the crowd by saying that the community should come together during Christmas, no matter how clichéd that sounds. ("I don't care what the cynics say.")

** Subverted by Bruce when he sees Selina on the street and notices how sad she is. He guesses that she must have "the holiday blues."
