*** It's a method thing; kind of like how a boxer might be shadow-boxing if you're talking to him before a fight. Basically, it's just a 'thing' Bruce does to help him psych up while he's in the costume. Related to this, if you know the identity of the guy who dresses up as a bat and beats up criminals every night, then the fact that he persists in using his special growly voice when he's around you while wearing ''his armoured bat costume'' is probably going to be the ''least'' potentially awkward thing about that situation. Plus, most of the people who know Bruce and who encounter him as Batman tend to do so in situations of life-or-death crisis (Ra's before he destroys the city, Lucius while Joker's rampaging around the city, and so forth), so they kind of have bigger fish to fry than the voice Bruce chooses to address them with.

As for Ra's specifically, he's about to destroy the whole city, so why exactly should Bruce give a crap if he feels awkward about him using his 'Batman' voice?

** Dude calls his alter ego ''Bat''man. Bats are kind of his motif. It's RuleOfSymbolism.

[[folder:Bruce using his Batman voice around Ras in the train sequence]]
* I find it odd that Bruce is talking in his Batman voice even though Ras already figured out his identity.
** He uses his Batman voice when he's being Batman. What's odd about that at all?
*** It's the fact that he does the Batman voice around people who already knows his identity. It may not be a big deal out-of-universe, but in-universe, it must have been awkward for Ras and the others. Don't tell me you would not feel weird if someone you know was doing the voice even after finding out his identity.
