* OneTakeWonder:
** The hospital scene, where the Joker totters out of Gotham General with the hospital exploding around him. The explosion stops for several seconds, causing the Joker to fiddle with the detonator, before the explosions suddenly continue. Heath Ledger does not break character (with rumors about how it was a mistake by the effects team abounding, though it turns out it was entirely intentional), nor does he even turn to watch the explosion even when he gets on the bus. Everything is executed perfectly, resulting in one of the most memorable scenes in the movie.
** In the DVD Extras, it's mentioned that they only purchased two Lamborghinis for the scene in which Bruce Wayne blocks the truck driver's attempt at running over Coleman Reese. It wasn't the end of the world if they got it wrong on both takes, but splashing a million dollars on two cars is naturally not exactly the optimal scenario. However, everything went right on the first try.

** The Film/DCExtendedUniverse, perhaps hoping for the same lightning to strike twice, also recycled this film's excellent and appropriate use of gritty realism for several of their subsequent movies, whether or not the darker tone was a good complement to the different source material. Critical reception to these choices has been decidedly mixed.

** In the Japanese dub, Creator/KeijiFujiwara is very likely he was casted as Joker due of his role as another AxCrazy psycho, Ali al-Saachez from ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'', who was being broadcasted in Japan at the time the film debuted there

* AdaptationDistillation: Harvey Dent's storyline is, in no small way, based on the Jonathan Nolan Story 'Memento Mori', which was also the basis for Creator/ChristopherNolan's ''Film/{{Memento}}''. A few of the Joker's speeches are near direct quotes from that story.
** The Joker's entire motivation seems to be a distillation of ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'' themes, particularly how one bad day could drive anyone to madness -- something he claims of himself, and tries to force on Batman, Harvey Dent, and Gotham in general.

Critical reception to these choices has been decidedly mixed.
* GeniusBonus: The Lamborghini Bruce Wayne drives is a Murcielago, which means Bat. So even when he's not in the suit, [[VisualPun Wayne is still driving a Bat-mobile]].

* MythologyGag: A memorable line from the 1989 ''{{Film/Batman}}'' movie is the Joker's remark that he wants "his face on the one-dollar bill." In ''Dark Knight'''s viral marketing campaign, [[http://asmith50.files.wordpress.com/2008/07/jokerdollar.jpg Joker really did put his face on the one-dollar bill]]!
