** Do you all want to know what's [[FromBadToWorse worse]]? [[spoiler: Those messages that Johnathan Crane leaves behind in Arkham City is foretelling on what is yet to come. Apparently, Scarecrow makes good on his word in them. ... [[HesBack He]] [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight returns!]]]]

* Exploring Gotham City tunnels for a long period of time searching for Ra's al Ghul and the League of Assassins can be creepy as well, when, after finding him and head back to the surface near the subway: you are greeted with a load of bodies piled on top of each other, Holocaust-style. Each of these men were Penguin's soldiers and after Batman took down Penguin and started searching for Ra's, a gang, presumably the Joker's, offed the leaderless clan and executed them all. It's a disturbing sight to behold.

-->'''Calendar Man:''' "Ebenezer Scrooge was a saint compared to old Judge Harkness. Remember him, Batman? Gotham's hanging judge, they called him. Even though the state had ruled me insane, Harkness swore he'd send me to the gallows. So you see, it was all a simple act of self-preservation. I could hardly be held responsible for strangling that street corner Santa Claus for his suit. I needed the disguise to sneak into the judge's Chrsitmas Eve party. Harkness thought it was all in fun until "St. Nick" caught him around the neck with a string of Christmas lights. The cops found him later, hanging from the elaborate light display of his own roof. Judgie almost looked like a cartoon himself alongside the comical reindeer, elves, and snowmen. I called that murder my "Christmas special." ** For those that played VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins it becomes a literal WhamLine, since on that faithful night while Batman fought and stopped many other fiends throughout the night. Batman couldn't stop this [[DoomedByCanon one murder from taking place]]. It really becomes a bit jarring on just how casually Julian delivers this one quote and rubs it into Batman's face.

* When fighting Mr Freeze, you can briefly scan him in Detective Mode before his jammer blocks your vision. The creepy part is that while most human characters show up as x-ray skeletons in Detective Mode, Freeze is only a skeleton from the neck up. Just a skull and stump of spinal cord in a robotic suit. This only means that other than the head, the suit can't be penetrated by Detective Mode's x-ray vision. Another detail some people might find unnerving that unlike other enemies, his heart rate drops to single digits while you're fighting him, but climbs back to normal when outside the fight.

** The downright creepy ambiance soundtrack of the credits following [[spoiler: Joker's song]] is insanely unsettling as it sounds like the combination of ominous wind blowing and eerie industrial bellowing. This seemingly simple yet creepy ambiance really can paint an image for the player regarding the future for Gotham, Batman, and the inmates of Arkham City which doesn't seem for the better even after [[spoiler: Joker's death]]. You think there would be a JumpScare coming at some point, [[NothingIsScarier but nothing happens]] [[spoiler: besides Harley's "Hush Little Baby", but only if you found the pregnancy test beforehand]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr9gAAMP1_Q Listening to Zsasz ramble on about his life before he became a murderer is made worse by the gradual anger in his voice and the sudden breaks in his monotone.]] And in [[NintendoHard Zsasz's side missions,]] you're trying to go save Mr. Freeze, and all of a sudden, you hear a phone ringing off in the distance. Pick it up, and Zsasz taunts you with a challenge of finding him within a certain amount of time. The stakes: you have to find out where he's calling from by going to every phone in the city (within a extremely small time limit), pick it up, and try to triangulate the source, rinse lather, repeat, until you find him. If you fail the side mission, or if you choose to ignore or miss the first several phones, he threatens kills countless scores of people. A rather unnerving deviation from the storyline, especially if you choose to go back to the main trail.

Misuse. This isn't an Audience Reaction.
** His story about his father takes the cake. It starts out actually kind of nice, although the player is likely [[GenreSavvy wary about what's coming next]] because this is probably not the first time they've heard one of his stories. If it is, players are in for a WhamLine at the end of the monologue.

** Also, [[spoiler:Strange was planning to do this over in [[{{Superman}} Metropolis]] and [[Franchise/TheFlash Keystone City]] once he was done eradicating everyone in Gotham. While the plan might not have flown quite as well as it did in Gotham, the thought of having the likes of Metallo, Captain Cold, Parasite, Zoom, Brainiac, and the like locked up in an isolated part of each city then blasted to smithereens,]] which can be FridgeHorror for those who have read the SupermanBatman arc "Absolute Power". [[spoiler: In that storyline, there were many alternate universes, including one where Batman did not exist (due to Bruce's parents living) and in that one, Ra's Al Ghul killed the entire Justice League.]]
