The Hobbit film trilogy
In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the Necromancer sent the bats after Radagast, who was searching for the dark magic. In the end Radagast manages to get away on his sled pulled by Rhosgobel Rabbits.
In The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the bats swarmed in Gundabad, and rallied alongside the orc army led by Bolg. In the battle, they aided the orcs in fighting the dwarves, elves, and men. One was later shot down by Legolas, who managed to hitch a ride on it, and the rest were chased off or killed by the Great Eagles.
