* NoOSHACompliance: It's not lingered on, but a single switch is the only difference between the Batcave's water dispenser pumping out clean drinking water and "the heavy water we use in recharging the atomic pile" -- the same atomic pile into which a teenage girl fell to her death in the very first episode.

* NoConservationOfMass: Dehydrating a fully grown adult male produces about a pound of powder and maybe two pounds of water. Rehydrating them takes about as much. Where the other 98% of their mass goes is anyone's guess.

* SpoofAesop: While climbing up the wall of Ye Olde Benbow Tavern, Batman pauses to remark to Robin that they won't be viewed as conspicuous due to the many drunkards hanging around the wharf (see UnusuallyInterestingSight). Robin later takes the lesson a little too far by suggesting it'd have been a good thing if Batman had let the entire tavern blow up, with Batman having to remind him that [[CaptainObviousAesop alcoholics aren't totally irredeemable and shouldn't die in an explosion]].

* LeaveTheTwoLovebirdsAlone: Bruce and Kitka's making out prompts Robin to turn the hidden camera off. Not to mention the kissing couple in the opening credits.

* MoodSwinger: The Riddler goes from icily calm & rational to absolutely giggling nuts in a moment throughout the movie.
* MoodWhiplash: Things momentarily take a very sombre tone when the Penguin's rehydrated pirates vanish, and Batman confirms that they're very much gone forever (see NeverSayDie below). This is amplified by the fact that earlier in the film Penguin takes pains to mention that every one of those men had a mother. This also means that, technically, the usually non-deadly Batman and Robin have just killed a number of people.
** Also, when Batman finds out that Catwoman & "Kitka" are the same person at the end of a fun fight scene. The music stops, and Batman slowly looks up with a shell shock look in his eyes. Robin tries to console him, but Batman dismisses him and reminds him they need to focus on saving the day and bringing justice to Gotham.

Then happens exactly that, (but arguably, the StatusQuoIsGod still applies) and Batman takes responsibility just before going out inconspicuously through the window.

* StockFootage: The Polaris missiles' launching. Scenes of the new Bat-Vehicles shot in the movie were also incorporated in the following seasons of the [[{{Series/Batman}} TV series]]. In one shot of the Polaris, the editors have attempted to make it look different by flipping the image so the fact that it's the same as the previous one will be less noticeable. Unfortunately, this just means that the word Polaris on the missile appears with all its letters facing the wrong way around.
