* If you're out wandering, you might hear a phone ringing in the street. If you happen to be outside the refugee camp, you'll see a crowd of inmates gathered around a ringing payphone, egging each other on to answer it. Listen long enough, and they'll start talking about how if you answer it, you'll be dead by morning, or worse, "he'll" keep you in a cage for days, [[ColdBloodedTorture cutting pieces out of you]]. One will mention how a fellow inmate "bought it" by answering and apparently his killer "cut off his fingers, stuck 'em in his mouth, and left him to choke on them". None of the inmates want to answer the phone... How about you, Batman?

** Or, during the second phone call, Batman tells Zsasz he should have stayed the way he was before he became a SerialKiller. Zsasz, with noticeable anger in his voice, ends the phone call. One could easily imagine him taking his anger out on that poor hostage...

** 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]].
