** [[spoiler:Also, Bruce and Selina just happen to be at the exact cafe that Alfred goes to every year in Florence.]] Although, it's possible they asked around a bit to find that out.

* FeedbackRule: When Foley thinks he has Batman trapped, he hauls out a megaphone to call on Batman to surrender. It squeals when he turns it on.

** Quite averted when Talia stabs Bruce from behind and even pushes the knife deeper. Instead of bleeding to death, he's back in the plane and with no noticeable harm (not even wincing) after Catwoman saves him from Bane.

** The movie starts with Bruce having [[GameBreakingInjury a bad leg]] after his last encounter with [[Film/TheDarkKnight the]] [[WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker Joker]], forcing him to use a cane and retire as Batman [[spoiler:and the movie ends with Bruce finding a right candidate to be his successor.]] This is very similar to what happened to him in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond''.

* ChuckCunninghamSyndrome: Despite Harvey Dent's and Rachel's death being major plot points for the movie, no one so much as breathes a hint as to what happened to SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker and actively seems to go out of their way to pretend he never existed. [[ActorExistenceFailure This was done on purpose out of respect for Heath Ledger.]]

** Despite the night of Harvey Dent's death 8 years earlier being a major plot point in ''Rises'', the Joker is never mentioned. This was a decision on Christopher Nolan's part after [[TheCharacterDiedWithHim the passing of Joker's actor Heath Ledger]]. However, the end of ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' has SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker being arrested by [=SWAT=] teams. In the novelization of ''Rises'', it is revealed that Joker was made the sole inmate of Arkham Asylum (since it is abandoned after the events of ''Film/BatmanBegins'' [[spoiler:due to being in an area that was flooded with Crane's fear toxin]]).

* SoCoolItsAwesome: Can be either in-universe or meta, but the veteran cop's line, "Oh boy, you are in for a show tonight, son..." when Batman returns probably enters this.

* CastingGag: Matthew Modine, who plays Foley, had played a character nicknamed "Joker" in Film/FullMetalJacket.
** [[Series/PrisonBreak Wade Williams]] is the Blakegate Prison warden.



* TranslationCorrection: A variant. As having TwoFirstNames is an extremely rare phenomenon for [[RussianNamingConvention Russian names]], Dr. Leonid Pavel was given the more realistic surname "Pavlov" in the Russian dub (although, [[RealityIsUnrealistic as it turns out]], Russian people with the surname "Pavel" [[http://www.onomastikon.ru/proishogdenie-familii-pavel.htm actually exist]]). Due to the existence of [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Pavlov a certain Dr. Pavlov]] in Real Life, this might have made it sound like Hollywood resorted to the FamousNamedForeigner trope once again.
