* In the latest Universe Reboot Batman encounters two new heroes calling themselves Gotham and Gotham Girl. One assumes that this arc will see the heroes attacking Batman for being too dark and violent and they are the right way. Nope... they are pretty much Batman fans and thrilled to work with him, being very polite. Well, Batman will hate them though, right? No again. Batman respects them and allows them to help. By issue 3 we learn that Gotham [[spoiler: is a young boy who was saved by Batman. His parents were almost killed like the Waynes (complete with the necklace almost being ripped off the mom) but Batman saved him and told him it was okay to be afraid now but to be brave one day. The boy decided to become a hero. Batman later tells Gotham he is happy to see what he became, much to Gotham's delight]]

** Keep in mind that the Phantom Stranger had revealed that this was a world without heroes and that if Bruce saved the alternate Waynes, he was dooming the world to never have heroes. Because Batman can only be born out of tragedy. Except, this time, the universe rewards Batman. The universe decides that he can become a hero even without the tragedy.

** Finally we see Batman patrolling the city til dawn as its shown that everyone from civilians to criminals ([[spoiler: including Joker]]) simply enjoying what is implied to be Gotham's first quiet night in a very very long time. As the sun rises over the horizon Bruce learns that it was a simple earthquake as the power comes back on, with the voice-over, the reporter's opinion article, telling Batman to enjoy the quiet night and be happy, if only for one night, to finally see the Gotham he always dreamed of.

* A blink if you miss moment, but after the Joker assassinates Benny in the film and drives away waving at a bewildered Bruce who last seen him drop into the chemical vat as Batman; Knox shouts for Wayne to get down so he wouldn't get shot in the gunfire. Knox may not like Wayne, but at least he isn't that much of a jerk to him.

* ''Detective Comics'' #726 (not to be confused with the Paul Dini Christmas story; that's #826): SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker combines this trope with a hefty dose of CrowningMomentOfAwesome and MagnificentBastard. To explain: [[spoiler:He's used morse code to coerce the guy in the cell next to his to escape, kidnap a small girl, and hide her somewhere. By the time Batman's on the case, the guy's already offed himself, so Batman's only chance of saving the girl is The Joker himself. After a less-than-informative conversation, The Joker realizes that Batman really isn't in the mood for a mind-game, and flat-out tells him where the girl is: in the trunk of a half-submerged car. After fighting his way through an ARMY of thugs, Batman finally does find the girl, and saves her just before she suffocates. Later, Batman returns to Arkham and asks why Joker came clean, to which the Ace of Knaves gives this response:]]

* In issue 51 "Gotham Is", the first issue since [[spoiler: Bruce returned as Batman following his presume death and memory loss]], Gotham suffers an unexplained black-out that everyone assumes is the first step towards some form of attack on the city and thus Batman naturally investigates leading to the following events:
** He first attempts to stop a breakout from Arkham only for new security measures stops the villains in their tracks.
** He then investigates the Court of Owls who are proven to be not involved and even chose not to take advantage of the black-out for their own means.
** Black Mask wishes to make a move only to be vetoed by Penguin.
** Finally Batman finds the epicenter of the blackout only to find one man, a former criminal who went on the straight and narrow after being busted by Batman, who went in to his job at the newspaper to write an article. He even thanks Batman for giving him the inspiration to take a second chance and went back to school and become an honest reporter.
**Finally we see Batman patrolling the city til dawn as its shown that everyone from civilians to criminals ([[spoiler: including Joker]]) simply enjoying what is implied to be Gotham's first quiet night in a very very long time. As the sun rises over the horizon Bruce learns that it was a simple earthquake as the power comes back on, with the voice-over, the reporter's opinion article, telling Batman to enjoy the quiet night and be happy, if only for one night, to finally see the Gotham he always dreamed of.
*** The article also states the simple fact that Batman sees the city at its worst and tells the people they can do better...and lately they've started to believe him. This issue helps to make it clear as day (or night as it were) that for all the evil and darkness found in people, ultimately Batman is right: they can be better.

* ''Detective Comics'' #831: after Bruce Wayne, as a member of the board of Arkham Asylum, votes against Harley Quinn's parole, Harley is then kidnapped from Arkham by the new female Ventriloquist to help pull a bank heist. Harley instead informs the police of the Ventriloquist's actions and helps Batman foil her scheme. Her reason? Arnold Wesker, the original Ventriloquist, was one of the few real friends she had as an inmate in Arkham, and she didn't like hearing the new Ventriloquist trash-talk against him so soon after his death. The following day, Harley meets with the Arkham parole board again and Bruce informs her he has changed his mind and was now voting in favor of her release.
* ''Detective Comics'' #833-834: Batman and Zatanna are forced to work with each other when a magician's assistant (and close friend of Zatanna's) is found murdered. Initially this is a case of TeethClenchedTeamwork on Batman's part because he still remembers how Zatanna mindwiped him during ''Comicbook/IdentityCrisis''. They discover that that the killer is none other than the Comicbook/{{Joker}} who then shoots Zatanna in the throat and locks her in a drowning tank, while strapping Batman into an electric chair. Believing that his mistrust of Zatanna nearly got them both killed, Batman is much more willing to work with her and by the end of the story any wrongs committed during ''Identity Crisis'' are forgiven.
** During this arc it is also revealed that during Bruce's first birthday after his parents were murdered, Alfred attempted to lighten the boy's mood with a birthday party, and even hired Zatanna's father John Zatara to perform. Bruce tried to skip the party by sitting alone by a river back near Wayne Manor, where a ten-year-old Zatanna pulled a variation of the [[WhatHaveWeEar coin-behind-the-ear trick]], producing soap bubbles instead. Without saying so much as a single word, Zatanna became one of the first people to successfully draw Bruce out of his isolation after his parents' death.
