The Batman series uses bats as a recurring prop, but the plot is not actually based on them. Batman uses Bats as a motivation. In the Dark Knight, her says he wants to use bats as an icon to strike fear into the hearts of criminals! Batmans chose the bat as a symbol and basis for his character. He overcame a childhood fear of bats, so it also symbolizes his strength. The movie Batman Begins goes into this in depth.
