* SpinTheBottle: At least one possibility about the "try-outs" scene after the Joker kills Gambol, when he breaks a pool cue and lays part of it on the floor in front of Gambol's three associates, is that "try-outs" are a macabre version of "spin the bottle", in that the guy the pool cue lands on is the one who does not get a bullet between the eyes and gets to work for the Joker.

''The Dark Knight'' received a overwhelmingly positive critical reception as a serious drama (unique for a comic book movie) thanks in large part to the ''tour de force'' performances of its cast (including the late Creator/HeathLedger's acclaimed performance as The Joker). The film held the record for the fourth-highest-grossing film of all time in the United States (behind ''Film/TheAvengers2012'', ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'', and ''Film/{{Avatar}}'') and the twelfth-highest worldwide.[[note]]It's now #24, according to TheOtherWiki[[/note]] It also became the first comic book film to win an acting UsefulNotes/AcademyAward when Heath Ledger posthumously won Best Supporting Actor.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Chicago not only plays Gotham, it even plays Hong Kong: When Fox and Lau are conversing on the terraced roof of Lau's Hong Kong office, you can clearly see [=McCormick=] Place in the background.
** The "Gotham" license plates seen on cars throughout the movie look like Illinois plates, for the specific purpose of making it harder to notice when actual Illinois plates slip in the background.

* BatmanGambit: Pulled off more frequently and effectively by The Joker than Batman himself. ** During the interrogation scene, he pushes Batman's buttons enough by revealing that he's got both Harvey and Rachel stashed away and Batman will have to choose which one to save. In his panic, Batman never even considers that The Joker is lying about who is where, even though The Joker made it clear that he knows how much Rachel means to Batman.

* PrisonersDilemma: There's an explicit but a little more sadistic Prisoner's Dilemma with actual prisoners. In the boat sequence each boat has a detonator to a bomb on the other boat. If they blow the other boat, their own bomb is disarmed. One prisoner even hints at one of the usual solutions to Prisoner's Dilemmas committing not to blow the other boat by ditching the detonator. Of course this being the Joker, he has a secondary detonator set to blow both boats if they cooperate, which Batman stops him from doing.
