* Bruce's state in the beginning on its own. An aging man, well past his prime with a few mementos of his time as Batman and even fewer friends to keep him company.

** The worst part of it all may well be seeing the affair through Batman's eyes. [[spoiler:Keep in mind that like Harvey, Bruce has spent most of the issue being subsumed by his darker side, with part of his determination in finding Harvey doubtless stemming from his own desperate hope that both of their psychological tears can be remedied after all. Not only is what he finds a brutal refutation to hope that Harvey will ever heal, but also the suggestion that ''neither will he''.]] It's telling that this is the ''only'' time in the comic where Batman treats an enemy not with contempt or rage, but genuine sadness. However, there ''is'' a HeartwarmingMoment when [[spoiler:he gives Harvey a CooldownHug.]]

* From the film, [[spoiler:Joker's death, in a very twisted manner. Batman paralyzes Joker, who ends up breaking his neck entirely to kill himself. What's tragic, however, is that at the end, ''[[TheBadGuyWins Joker won]]''. He, after all the years, managed to make Batman effectively kill him. Not only is their seemingly endless game of cat and mouse over, but it ends in [[DownerEnding the villain's favor]].]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Joker''': It doesn't matter... I win. I made you lose control... and they'll kill you for it. '''''See you...in Hell.''''']]
** The moments leading up to it also count. [[spoiler:Batman tells to Joker that he blames himself, for every single innocent Joker killed, all because he always lets him live. And now, he shows no hesitation to just ''end it.'']]
-->'''Batman''': ''No more!'' All the people I've murdered...''by letting you live.''

* And let's not forget [[spoiler:the Cub Scouts at the county fair]]. God...
** One of the few times Bruce doesn't respond with anger or stoiciness but looks genuinely sad.

to:

* For the past ten years, Harvey Dent's been undergoing psychiatric and cosmetic reconstruction into his old self... And the day he's released, it all begins to fall apart. [[spoiler:It turns out his obsession with duality has begun to subside not as a result of restored mental health, but because ''two-face'' is subsuming the original Harvey Dent. Harvey then tries to hold Gotham Towers for five million dollars' ransom, implied to be an effort of repayment towards Bruce out of a twisted sense of gratitude. During a fight with Batman, he's saved from a possible suicide attempt and, rendered helpless, suffers a complete breakdown in Batman's arms.]]
