*** That's still kinda sad. Puddin' said stop the Bat, so he'll be thrilled when he finds out she trapped him there, and gladly let her back on the party list, right?



* Seeing the dozens upon dozens of corpses of innocent guards and doctors throughout the game. Easily a hundred good men and women dead, and this is just ''one'' time that the Joker will break out. Knowing that Batman will never bring himself to end his archnemesis means that this will happen again, and again, and again...

* So much happens in the Warden's office that you may miss this, but there's a plaque on the wall near his safe that has a dedication on it. "May this secret be as an oasis in a desert of insanity. --Daddy." It's not made clear who put this there, the Warden or Amadaeus, but it serves a sobering reminder that, for all their flaws, they've suffered through just as much loss as Batman has.

* Taken even further in the ComicBook/EmperorJoker adaptation, from the WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold animated series. It reveals that "Being sane and normal" is one of Joker's worst fears. So in a sense, these "Rehabilitation sessions" terrify him more than we would assume.

Added DiffLines:

* Doctor Young's death in general is pretty damn sad, as she was in the middle of [[TheAtoner atoning for]] invertingly helping the joker make the Titan formula.
** Plus the game heavily implies she had a girlfriend or wife, which means she be leaving a loved one behind.

* Most of the Joker interviews are disturbing, but the third one is just sad. After the Joker plays the MultipleChoicePast card, Dr. Young tells him to focus on his real past. His response is one of the few times there's no manipulation or mockery in his voice: "What if... what if I'm too scared to remember? It hurts too much." Even the Joker was a person once.

Even It's still possible that he's just ballsing around again, but it's also possible that it's only just now he's finding out about the Joker was a person once.Titan Project - so maybe for once he is telling the truth?

** The worst part is towards the end, when we hear the mugger (with Scarecrow's voice) gun down Martha. Bruce screams, the gun fires, and Batman ''staggers''. He makes it to his parents' corpses and falls to his knees, and after a brief flash of light, he turns into his eight-year-old self. After a few moments, the Bat-signal shines down on the whole scene.

* Same as above, both this and horror. While saving [[spoiler: Dr. Young from Zsazs]], she's crying with her whole heart out, even with smeared make up. After the [[spoiler: bomb blows out on her face, her body, left on the floor, with no one attending or taking it... just left there, all burned out and charred and bloodied]]. It'll be normal if she just disappears, like in any other game, but in this one, just the unconscious disappear, and because they left after waking up. But [[spoiler: the dead]] stay there, even if they're cops or doctors or whatever other citizen.
