** "How do you beat the Dark Knight, the Bat Detective? You place a big clue, put it right under his nose, and wait!" It's from ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity'' but it's a telling sign that Batman tends to go for the more complicated theories rather than the obvious. It stems back to the 60's Batman where each clue or riddle was more convoluted. It stems from the animated series where he thinks the streets are not safe or someone is a crook and it turns out he's wrong, where he checks, double checks, triple checks Penguin until he sees Cobblepot genuinely wants to reform. And it stems from ''Film/BatmanForever'' where the Riddler leaves...what's the word, riddles that when figured out are obvious numbers to letters but initially he works from the idea of how clocks, matches, chess pawns and tennis fit.

* Why didn't/can't Batman use his detective mode when he's inside the Visitor's Centre at any time in the game? He would have seen that the Joker mannequin is actually the Joker himself, the criminal he's trying to arrest throughout the game. Batman could have easily ended all the violence and destruction right at the beginning.

*** Note that the "Arkham guard" on the boat has a visor over his face, and his voice was muffled. It's entirely possible that that was a slightly less burly thug in disguise.

*** And also, he was ferrying the Joker to Arkham Asylum. If there's a place in the universe where it is more than justified for Batman to approach it with at least a little paranoia, it is Arkham Asylum.

*** The fact that they are essentially broken human beings (and even the word "human" is kind of stretched with Ivy) does not change the fact that neither Harley nor Ivy has much of a problem with murdering people. Batman's a vigilante, not a psychiatrist. His goal is just to stop crimes from happening - he has neither the time nor energy to spend trying to rehabilitate criminals.

** In BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Batman used Gasmasks quite a few times. Though almost always it was against basic poison/nerve gas.

** I was under the impression that he held it tightly around him. But maybe that's just me.

[[folder: Cash's imprisonment]]
* When Cash was tied to a chair in the Arkham mansion earlier in the game, couldn't he have used his hook-hand to cut the ropes and free himself? By the looks of it, it'd seem like it would've done the trick.

*** [[TheShawshankRedemption Every prison has a guy who knows how to "get things".]] I think Arkham's is either [[ComicBook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell Great White Shark or Junkyard Dog]], right?
