* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: [[spoiler:Batman has no problems with killing Dracula. Even Alfred is surprised. "Dracula's not a man. He's a monster." Although granted, he did at least try the vampire cure on him first and capturing Dracula isn't really an option that Batman has available to him. Plus, vampires are undead. You can't really kill something that's already dead. Especially if said something has been dead for centuries, that makes it very difficult.]]

* EvilCounterpart: Dracula is presented as this to Batman. Both are bat-themed, both operate primarily at night, both wear big capes, both are considered legends in their own way, both have servants and sidekicks to help them in their respective goals(Batman has Alfred and will later have Robin and Batgirl, while Dracula has Penguin, Joker and his mindless vampire minions), both are aristocrats(Batman is a billionaire philanthropist, while Count Dracula is well...a count), both of them have very bad reputations, both of them dislike killing people(Batman because of his no-killing rule and Dracula because of PragmaticVillainy) and both of them are doing what they do because of their loved ones(Batman protects innocent people because he lost his parents, Dracula harms innocent people because he wants to bring back his bride Carmilla).

* JokerImmunity: At the beginning of the film, Batman witnesses Joker fall into a river, with his electric hand buzzer still active, believing him to have been electrocuted to death. Although given that he's the TropeNamer, he survives, only for Dracula to turn him into a vampire. And he's right back to normal by the end of the movie.

* LaserGuidedAmnesia: As Batman discovers after curing them, none of Dracula's victims have any memories of being vampires. Though Joker remembering the cemetery being the last place he was at helped Batman in locating Dracula. And as far as everyone knows, the Penguin is responsible for the disappearances.

** Joker is the only vampire slave of Dracula who retains most of his individuality and willpower (knowing Joker, this is probably due to InsanityImmunity), as well as the ability to speak, though he is still unable to reveal Dracula's resting place to Batman.

** Penguin too, in a way. For being Dracula's accomplice and keeping his existence a secret from his fellow supervillains.



* TheVirus: This is at least the case for everyone normal turned in this film. Becoming a vampire effectively means contracting a virus from Dracula and Batman comes up with a serum to cure it. [[spoiler:The stuff doesn't work on Dracula however, as his vampirism is much more supernatural in nature, apparently.]]

* InsanityImmunity: [[spoiler: Downplayed. When Dracula turns people into vampires, they typically become mindless animals who are nothing but his slaves, and can do nothing but snarl and growl. When Joker is turned, however, he retains all of his higher reasoning and intelligence, and can even ''talk''. That being said, he's not free from Dracula's control. Joker still has to follow his orders like the other vampires and he ca n't control his litteral thirst for blood.]]
