*** One moment has Batman turning to face The Joker - the 180 whiparound as to not damage the cowl made it look ''cool'',.

* BaseBreaker: Creator/MichaelKeaton being cast as Batman was this back in 1989, and now after all these years fans still divided over him, perhaps even more so now thanks to the Creator/ChristopherNolan Batman films starring ChristianBale. Some fans still insist Keaton was, is and will always be the one true honest, most perfect definitive Batman and that no one else will ever surpass him and hate on Bale for not sounding like Creator/KevinConroy, while other fans still feel Keaton was miscast and will always feel he was miscast and prefer Bale for being a closer physical match to Batman's comic book self and for playing up both sides of the persona. And then there are fans who don't like either actor in the role, and there are fans who like both actors in the role, and others who feel Keaton did well enough with what he had.

* WTHCastingAgency: Michael Keaton so thoroughly proved the naysayers wrong that, in hindsight, it's hard to remember just how bizarre casting a famously mild, unimposing comedic actor as a grim, Frank Miller-inspired version of Batman seemed at the time. Thousands of fans wrote letters to WarnerBros protesting the choice before the movie's release, and Keaton himself initially thought that his being cast for the part meant that the film would be taking its cues from the TV series.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Batman has been subject to numerous alternate {{canon}} interpretations. Some depict him as a noble crusader against crime; others make him a borderline psychopath barely removed from the lunatics he spends his life fighting. And even if he's not as bad as the lunatics he fights there's still the question of whether or not Batman himself could be classified as legally insane or not.

* CaptainObviousReveal: Bruce Wayne is Batman. This isn't revealed until over halfway into the movie, but ''come on''.

* NewOldWest: A remarkable Eastern, urban variant. It's not just the presence of Jack Palance and Bob's cattle-rustler countenance [[OneOfTheseThingsIsNotLikeTheOthers making him stick out from the other goons]]. There's the [[WretchedHive Dodge City lawlessness]], the villain [[PlayingCardMotifs carrying around a pack of playing cards]], many of the guns being [[RevolversAreJustBetter revolvers]] (complete with [[PinballProjectile stereotypical ricochet sounds]]), a heavy [[NotBigEnoughForTheTwoOfUs "this-town-ain't-big-enough-for-the-both-of-us"]] mood as the festival approaches, [[ShowdownAtHighNoon a shootout on a nearly empty street]] (the Batplane strafing Broad Avenue), [[JusticeWillPrevail the triumph of simple virtue over corruption]], Batman's voice being reminiscent of Creator/ClintEastwood...and there's even Vicki Vale filling the role of [[EthicalSlut the saloon girl who's also a lady]]! Creator/TimBurton is one of the last people you'd expect to make a Western movie, but you could argue that that's precisely what he did here - except instead of cowboys and Indians, we have an Apache bat-spirit versus a rodeo clown.
* NiceJobFixingitVillain: If [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker Jack Napier]] never [[DeathByOriginStory shot Thomas and Martha Wayne]], then Bruce Wayne never would have become Batman.
