Added DiffLines:

* One for Ra´s here. His entire plan goes almost without a hitch. The only reason he loses is because he left Bruce in the manor instead of killing him. Had he finished him, no one would have been able to stop him.

Added DiffLines:

** The whole thing becomes far funnier when you know the meaning of Ra´s al Ghul: The head of the demon. So, in a way, Batman did end up facing the devil as his final enemy in the movie.

Added DiffLines:

**That whole sequence is flawless: he comes down, saves Rachel and the kid, drops the line, lets Rachel register everything, and then leaps from the rooftop and glides off to confront Ra's, all without missing a beat.

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D-QcBD837Dg His escape.]] If Bruce Wayne wants to exit the house and catch some air he won't stop for a piddling obstacle like the entire League.
** To elaborate, [[spoiler:the false]] Ra's al Ghul tells Bruce [[IfYoureSoEvilEatThisKitten to kill this one criminal]] to affirm his status as member of the League of Shadows. [[ThouShaltNotKill Owing to his one rule]] ''before'' becoming Batman, Bruce basically says "hell no", dips his sword into the hot coal and tosses it into some bags, beginning to burn down the temple. The League, in response, ''immediately ready their swords '''[[UndyingLoyalty in unison]]''''', with Ra's doing the same and fighting Bruce as the temple explodes and collapses around them. Ra's ends up [[spoiler:dying from having burning logs collapsing on top of him]]. The next thing Bruce does is to pick up Ducard and get the hell out of the house, but end up flying out as Ducard slides off the mountain. Bruce follows suit, and ultimately saves Ducard via using the spiked blades on his arm, proving that they can do more than just following the RuleOfCool.
* The scene with Falcone loading a shotgun in his car, where you can just imagine his panic. He then whispers "What the hell are you?" Cue a smash of glass andůsay it with us now..."I'm Batman!"
* One for a villain - Jonathan Crane is trying to destroy some evidence, when both of his [[{{Mook}} mooks]] are taken out by an unseen assailant, who then reveals himself as the guy who singlehandedly took down a mob boss. So does he flee? No! He quickly slips on his mask, releases his fear gas, and then ''[[KillItWithFire sets Batman on fire!]]''
-->[[HurricaneOfPuns "Oh, having trouble? Take a seat. Have a drink. You look like a man who takes himself too seriously. You want my opinion? You need to lighten up]].
** For Dr. Crane (and arguably, Creator/CillianMurphy's career) up to this point: "Would you like to see my mask?"
** In the straitjacket, when he says "[[MadnessMantra Scarecrow...]]"
* The moment where Batman first appears is not just one of the most Crowning Moments in the character's history, but possibly the greatest moment in motion picture history ''ever''. Not only does he manage to dispatch an entire crew of mobsters single-handedly and reduces their boss from an arrogant, bullying invincible crime-lord to a terrified old man cowering in the back of a limo with a gun (which Batman then proceeds to pull the crime-lord out of ''through the sun-roof''), he politely compliments an old homeless man on his coat (which Bruce, years ago, gave to him) in the process. Oh, and he ties the mob boss to a spotlight, inventing the bat signal.

'''Batman:''' ''(hanging upside down, coming into shot as we pan with the goon)'' '''Here.'''\\
'''Goon:''' Yaaahh-- ''(cut off as the black cape envelopes him)''
* The introduction of the bat-signal in approximately the middle of the movie. [[KnightInSourArmor Jim Gordon]] shows up with a bunch of other police officers to the place where a group of Falcone's goons were. Another officer asks if they're Falcone's men, Gordon cynically replies''"does it matter? We'll never tie him to it anyway."'' Then the officer adds, ''"I wouldn't be too sure of that"'' and then nods his head towards something that Gordon apparently didn't even notice beforehand; a searchlight pointed at the clouds, with Falcone chained to it such that his shadow forms a bat-silhouette in said clouds. A symbol of hope in a city that clearly needs it. It also helps that [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic the music used in that scene]] has [[TriumphantReprise the same melody as was used earlier]] in part of "[[TrainingMontage The Will To Act]]."
