Added DiffLines:

* LogoJoke: Each film in the trilogy puts the [[Main/VanityPlate vanity plates]] under different colors:
** ''Batman Begins'' turns the WB and DC logos grayscale with a subtle glow effect.
** ''The Dark Knight'' colors the logos in a ''very'' dark blue, dark enough that the Warner shield is barely visible.
** ''The Dark Knight Rises'' combines the previous two variants into an icy-blue shade.

** Batman's signature interrogation tactic, screaming 'WHERE?' while beating people up, used on Flass, The Joker, and Bane in each film respectively. It only really worked the way he expected it to in the first one, but either way he did get the information, [[spoiler:although the second and third times did not end as well for him, with TheJoker manipulating him and tricking him into saving Harvey not Rachel and later, Bruce found out his new LoveInterest was EvilAllAlong and that she had the trigger for the nuclear bomb that he was looking for.]]

* SuperheroParadox: Subtly applied throughout the series, as it isn't often talked about. Ra's al Ghul would have destroyed Gotham if Bruce hadn't become Batman, but TheJoker seems to find Batman an inspiration and tells him how he changed things. Bruce does discuss with Alfred how Batman was supposed to inspire good, not madness and evil; something that TheJoker goes on to inspire [[spoiler:in Harvey "Two-Face" Dent]]. On top of that, Batman saved [[spoiler:Harvey Dent]] from certain death but didn't manage to [[spoiler:save half his face and more importantly, his LoveInterest who also happened to be Bruce's]], which let TheJoker visit him and [[spoiler:convince him to give into insanity]]. Dr. Jonathan Crane was already evil before Batman came around, but it probably didn't help that Batman [[spoiler:drove Crane insane with Crane's own fear toxin.]] Finally, if Batman did not [[spoiler:leave Ra's to die]]; Bane [[spoiler:and Talia]] would not have sought [[spoiler:{{revenge}} on Bruce by torturing Bruce and Gotham, then [[NukeEm nuking]] Gotham.]] Pretty much every main villain in the series with the exception of Ra's al Ghul is somehow linked to Batman in relation to why they're insane and/or evil and why they want to torment others or Gotham.

* NewYorkCityCops: Gotham Police take many cues from the NYPD, most notably the paint job, which is based primarily on that used by the NYPD but also takes some cues from the Los Angeles Police Department.

** The clown mask the Joker wears at the beginning of ''The Dark Knight'' is identical to a clown mask Cesar Romero's Joker wore in the classic '66 ''{{Series/Batman}}'' story "The Joker Is Wild/Batman is Riled".

** In a time when the comics have made the supposedly human Batman, actually superhuman (for example, in the Batgirl comics where Stephanie Brown was the Batgirl, it was stated that Batman only needed 1-2 hours of sleep), the Dark Knight trilogy brought him back to normal. When he tried to fight a handful of panicked people in the first movie, he got mobbed and beaten up despite his armor. As well he's a JackOfAllTrades and an expert fighter, rather than being a MasterOfAll, (for example, he couldn't understand the Joker - something that any trained psychologist could do, even Alfred and the beat cop in the interrogation room knew what the clown as about and instead of building his high-tech equipment from scratch, he just pocketed overly-expensive Wayne Enterprise prototypes).
