* Bruce pulled a BatmanGambit in Vicki's apartment. The tray he used as a bulletproof vest was positioned over his chest, where Napier had aimed when he shot Eckhardt and Batman at the chemical plant. (Batman held his arm over his chest to deflect the bullet that came his way.) The only way Bruce could've survived was if the Joker aimed where he did at the chemical plant.

* A lot of people wonder how Batman managed to miss the Joker several times with the weaponry on the Batwing. Unlike [[Star Wars Luke Skywalker]], Batman is no Jedi. Anyone trying to fire at a six foot target in a plane with anti-vehicle guns, especially when he was flying straight at the Joker, is pretty much just hoping for a stray bullet to get blown at its target. Sure the Joker would have to have been nuts to just stand there, but not hitting the Joker was just about as likely as actually hitting him. The Joker, [[ImprobableAimingSkills on the other hand]]... I've got nothing.

* Why didn't Batman just kick Jack's gun off the ledge after disarming him?

*** [[JokerImmunity This phenomenon]] is best explained in the [[BatmanUnderTheRedHood animated adaptation.]] Jason questions whether Bruce feels it would be too hard to give up the moral high ground, and Bruce counters that it'd be too damned easy. He elaborates that every day he contemplates torturing Joker like he's done to so many others before putting him down. Bruce basically says that if he breaks his no-kill code for Joker, there's nothing holding him back from killing other criminals. As he puts it, "... if I allow myself to go down into that place... I'll never come out."

* The Franchise/{{Batman}} and SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker rivalry is full of FridgeHorror moments: among other notes:

* Of course, the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]] and [[UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] versions didn't have this problem, people had shorter lifespans back then, but the thought that Bruce was all alone with no family after his parents' murder is strange in modern times.
** Of course, [[MadDoctor given the social services]] most likely to be [[CrapsackWorld available in Gotham]], this could actually have been for the best.
** I had always assumed that they had named Alfred as his legal guardian in the event that they died. His grandparents on both sides could have already passed and it's entirely possibly for Thomas and Martha to have both been only children. And if there were some slightly distant members of the Wayne family, here's always the possibility that they may have looked at the Wayne fortune and well... [[ASeriesOfUnfortunateEvents it brings to mind the plot of a certain book series]]. Of course this is partially WMG, but still possible.

** Not entirely sure how this qualifies as Fridge... well, anything, really. That is the entire point of that scene, as well as a joke about the absurd amount of cosmetic product used on TV personalities prior to going on camera.

** One of the groups the Nazis wanted to eliminate were the mentally ill. Not surprising at all that their partnership fell apart.
