* Catwoman's flirting with Batman comes off as sad to this troper. She clearly cares for him, pines for him, but feels like he doesn't reciprocate, and believes he must be spoken for. It's sad because he's involved with Talia this game, but Selina's bio mentions that she and Batman have romantic history, and he still flirts with her somewhat, leaving that little strand of hope dangling for her. It comes across as even sadder when you're listening to her interview tapes with Hugo Strange.

* [[spoiler: Harley's pregnant.]] While this first seems like good news for her, there's a lot that makes it very likely more of a TearJerker. [[spoiler: Considering the baby was conceived while Joker was sick, if the Titan has the ability to be based on to offspring, the baby could easily be deformed in some way; it's more than likely that the baby will be taken away from Harley after it's born; and, worst of all, who's to say she'll even give birth to it? The pregnancy test was no doubt taken sometime before the start of the game, and she couldn't be too far along. A lot of the things that we can assume happen to her could have resulted in miscarriage. Plus the possible Titan-based damage present in the baby itself could cause the baby to die before it's born.]] And the whole premise in general is pretty sad: [[spoiler: Harley is in an abusive relationship with the Joker. Instead of the baby "bringing them together", which is sometimes the sad logic of some abuse victims, the baby might well wind up as another victim of one or ''both'' of them.]]

** Knowing that this would be the last time Hamill would voice the Joker ([[spoiler:until ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', that is]]), "Only You (And You Alone)" feels as much like Hamill singing his farewell to his fans as it does Joker singing to Batman. It's a beautiful send off for this era of the Joker.

* [[spoiler: Joker's death. He was a terrible, lunatic murderer, and anyone who says that he deserved to die has a solid argument. But the magnitude of the situation, the slow pacing, the quiet credits, and what happens in the middle of the credits, there's such an emotional impact. [[HarsherInHindsight And when you realize that this may well be the last time we hear Mark Hamill's Joker]], it really does feel like something important, something you've known since childhood, really did die.]]
