- Vicki Vale: “Bats...”
- Batman: “They're great survivors.”

This small, injured, fruit bat was owned by Batman, and kept in a cage in his Batcave. The fruit bat's cage was next to the Batcomputer. Vicki Vale, upon her visit to the Batcave, noted the fruit bat had a broken wing, wrapped in bandages and splint. Batman proceeded to pat the cage, noticing Vicki's interest in it and told her bats were great survivors. The fruit bat was most likely released back into the Batcave after recovering.
Behind the Scenes
Sam Hamm's screenplay indicates that Bruce sympathizes with the wounded bat, creating a blatant symbolic image.
- Many fans speculated this was the same bat young Bruce encountered in Batman Forever.
