** The downright creepy ambient 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 ambience 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]].

***To make it even creepier, the music that plays at the end of the credits is the same music used in the Visitor Center in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum''

* [[spoiler: Harley Quinn has a pregnancy test that says 'positive' in Joker's hideout. If you finish the game in New Game Plus, she sings to the baby at the end. [[IronicNurseryTune "Hush little baby, don't say a word... momma's gonna kill, for you, the whole damn world..."]]

* [[spoiler: Harley Quinn has a pregnancy test that says 'positive' in Joker's hideout.]] Be scared for the third game!
** If you find it before the credits, [[spoiler: she sings to the baby at the end. [[IronicNurseryTune "Hush little baby, don't say a word... momma's gonna kill, for you, the whole damn world..."]]]] Creator/KevinConroy [[WordOfGod himself]] compared the game to ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyondReturnOfTheJoker'': do the math.
*** [[spoiler: Turns out the test was a false positive. In Harley Quinn's Revenge, you can find a lot more used tests, all of them negative. They have been circled around a crib... with a Joker'd up Scarface.]] It's safe to say that Harley has indeed, "lost it, big time".

** Julian also has one more monologue, accessed by visiting him on the day Rocksteady was founded. He comments that he's watched Batman since his beginning, and that the end of days is coming, hints at the next ''two games'' in the franchise, and that he will be there to watch Batman's fall. [[spoiler: In a freeze-frame bonus in Arkham Knight 100% ending, he makes clear he wasn't lying, as he is visible amongst the crowd gathered as Batman activates the Knightfall protocol and fakes his own death.]]

** 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 ''ComicBook/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.]]

* That oh-so-brief glimpse of Batman's face when Talia pulls up his mask for a kiss - keeping in mind that Bruce was scant minutes from death just before... Talia's horrified reaction is what seals it.

* When you come across [[spoiler: Nora Fries, Mr. Freeze's cryogenically frozen wife]] some of the goons guard her may be debating thawing her out with the implication that they were going to abuse her. Imagine that the last thing you remember is [[spoiler: being frozen by your loving husband and the next conscious moment of your life is being [[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil sexually assaulted]] by by a group of psychos and murderers.]] that is the stuff of nightmares.

** This is all made somehow worse by his Cockney accent. Penguin sounds just so cheery when doing all these horrible things, as if he's just having a jolly good time. Penguin sounds like a friendly man in the pub, and then he rants at Batman about putting the Caped Crusader in a museum of bodies for the rest of his life.

* 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?
