*** I think the point they're trying to make is, when this billionaire pretty boy who people seem to assume has never even been in a fight started doling out moves out of nowhere, those being eerily similar to those used by a certain masked vigilante, how did nobody even START putting the pieces in place to think they were one and the same?

** In the animated series, it was pronounced "Raysh" to avoid linking him with any particular nation. Also, that's the version KevinConroy is most familiar with.

** In Strange's BreakThemByTalking near the end of the game, he also argues that Batman's actions make villains stronger, like a virus that becomes resistant to immunization, which [[YouFailBiologyForever isn't an accurate comparison]], but still.

*** Aaron Cash was already in the game; maybe they didn't want two one-handed minor characters?

** That idea actually doesn't work, because as shown later in the game, when you see [[spoiler:Clayface Joker]] in combat, he appears [[spoiler:without any bones. So unless he can form bones inside of his shape-shifted body, the best idea here so far is that dying Joker was just waiting there with a rigged heartbeat monitor.]] Maybe Batman's Detective mode only picks up heartbeat levels between a certain value? That way [[spoiler:the Joker could have used either chemicals or relaxation/meditation techniques to keep his heartbeat level low enough?]] Then again, ''that'' doesn't explain how Bats' Detective Mode can pick up unconscious mooks' heartbeats and [[AustinPowers oh no I've]] [[MemeticMutation gone cross-eyed.]]

** Yes, but Strange and Ra's specifically mentioned their intentions to rule the world. You don't take over the planet by becoming a hero to the populace. Becoming a local hero conveys no authority. And even if it did, they only say that they're going to do it in 3 places. No matter how important said places are, 3 places does not equal world domination. Plus, they wouldn't really be able to do something like Arkham city more than a few times. After that if anyone suggested doing it in another population center, they’d be refused <script id="gpt-impl-0.09940968094446872" src="http://partner.googleadservices.com/gpt/pubads_impl_78.js"></script>because everyone would know about how badly that idea had worked the first 3 times. Also Ra's mentioned "wiping the world Clean" which I assume is referring to his usual goal of killing millions of people in order to save those who are left from Eco-disaster. How does setting yourself up as a hero of the people aid you in a quest that will end in the murder of thousands of said innocents?

* Something that has always bugged me about Strange; the man's an idiot. Throughout Protocol 10, he keeps saying to Batman that he's won, even though Batman's not dead (as Strange had planned) and is now coming to stop him. Even the Joker is sane enough to realize that when Batman's foiled your plan, escaped your death trap, beaten up your guards and is standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOUR FACE, your options are either [[VillainousBreakdown crying]] or [[NotSoFastBucko pulling out your secret weapon.]] For Joker (in Asylum) it was [[spoiler:exposing himself to TITAN.]] Strange...doesn't have one. Now I know most of this can be shrugged off with "[[SanityHasAdvantages he's insane]]", but there's one specific thing that he says that doesn’t make sense, even for him. When Batman is on the elevator up to Strange's tower to commence Operation F-Up-Evil-Plan, Strange tells Batman that eventually, Batman will kneel before him, and beg for mercy. [[FlatWhat What?]] Strange is a psychologist ''genius''. He used his skill to figure out Batman's identity. Therefore, he should KNOW with clarity that few villains understand that [[{{Badass}} Batman's]] about as likely to beg him for mercy as he is to give up the evil plan and open a candy store.

**Batman isn't entirely rational when it comes to the Joker. If we look at Batman: Under the Red Hood and his general behavior we can piece together a reason. Batman: Under the Red Hood has a conversation that can be summed up as Batman won't kill Joker because he knows that once he's crossed that line he'll find a way to justify killing the rest of the rogues. If we're being honest depending on the setting there are others who deserve it nearly as much as Joker. It doesn't seem like a stretch to think that Batman looks at every single missed punch, every time he didn't put the pieces together properly instantly and wonders if maybe he didn't slow down because this was what he wanted all along. Of course this is more a theory than backed by the game.

** Or it happened something like in TheDarkKnightRises, and [[spoiler: Bruce managed to get up by himself before too much damage went down]]. Hopefully not too much like it, though, or Gothamites will get pretty damn jaded with [[spoiler: the city being held hostage]].
