* In ''Videogame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'', Batman uses these to defeat the Scarecrow. ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' also uses these for objective location markers (and for custom waypoint markers that the player can set.) The bat-signal spotlight itself can be found atop the GCPD and serves as a riddle solution.

** Interestingly, in Volume 3 of ''ComicBook/SupermanEarthOne'', Lois ends up getting one to contact Superman, her reasoning being that he spends so much time in the clouds. Superman points out that it might as well tell an alien invasion "drop bombs here". [[spoiler:Lex Luthor uses it as a trap to hit Superman with red sun radiation, but it's kept at the very end.]]

* ''GoldenBat'': This is the UrExample. A decade before Batman, the Japanese [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamishibai Kamishibai]] ProtoSuperhero, ''Golden Bat'' (debuted 1930), was using a similar cunning technique, using his costume and his reputation to scare the villains he fights. First a gold bat would appear, followed be a haunting laughter and the appearance of Ogon Bat`s ghostly golden skull. He was also feared because, unlike most heroes that would follow him (and some before), he didn't care if the villains died or not, so a meeting with the bat would most definitely end in death.
