* TheAlcatraz: The Pit is designed to be inescapable. PlayedWith in that The Pit is actually very easy to escape in the conventional sense; there are no guards, there are no locked cells, and prisoners are free to move about as they wish. There is also no physical barrier keeping them in as the roof is completely open to the outside world. The only thing keeping them in is a vertical climb of at least a hundred feet to get up to the opening at the top. A lot of prisoners have tried and failed to escape (often killing themselves in the process), but the extremely difficult climb IS possible, [[spoiler:as Bane, Bruce, and Talia al Ghul have proven. The safety rope is apparently there as a trick: it may save you from a fatal fall, but it also makes it impossible to make a jump during the climb, which is properly done free-climbing.]]

* WhenYouSnatchThePebble: The HellholePrison has no guards or locks. It's just buried ten stories underground at the bottom of a giant hole open to the sky, with seemingly more than enough handholds on the walls... but it's false hope. Most lack the physical strength to climb it, and those that do fall for the hidden trap--a jump from one ledge to another that is just slightly too far for most people to make, meaning that escape is utterly impossible unless you are willing to risk certain death by making the jump ''without'' the safety rope. And if you miss it, the results will be extremely painful....for you.

* ForgotToPayTheBill: [[spoiler:After Bane ruins Bruce's fortune, electricity to Wayne Manor is shut off not long after, because he can't afford it anymore.]] "From Billionaire to Bum," indeed.

** When Gordon is trying to convince Foley to join the resistance, he says, "Look, Peter, I'm not asking you to parade down Grand in your dress blues, but something has to be done!" At the final battle, Foley is leading the charge--in his dress blues.

*** A small one, but when Bane says, "That's a lovely, lovely voice" listening to the boy singing the national anthem at the football game? [[spoiler:It shows that he has a soft spot for kids.]] Did you notice that he also says it after the kid sings the line, "[[MeaningfulEcho And the rocket's red glare / the bombs bursting in air / Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there]]"? Because [[spoiler:how do you think that bomb is going to be disposed of?]]

** Selina's shy, ShrinkingViolet demeanor when she's pretending to be a maid is just like how Selina was portrayed pre-Catwoman transformation in BatmanReturns.

** [[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.
