** A subtle one: Joker attempts to force Mr. Freeze to develop a cure for him by holding his wife hostage. Joker is voiced by Creator/MarkHamill, whose first voice in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' was Ferris Boyle, the guy responsible for Mr. Freeze, and Mark's performance as him also landed him with his voicing SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in that series. Furthermore, by reading one of the riddles called "Who can BOYLE and Freeze at the same time?" and listening to the Mr. Freeze audio tapes, you find out that Ferris Boyle is canon in the Arkhamverse.

* {{Blooper}}: [[spoiler: As the generator slams Clayface into the Lazarus Pit and explodes, the vial holding the cure is in Batman's left hand, but when he comes to, it's in his right one. Until ''Arkham Knight'' confirmed the Joker died, some people speculated that it was intentional and the Joker took some of the cure and was faking his death. After ''Knight'', though, it's become clear that it was indeed a screw-up.]]

* BeamMeUpScotty: Many have misquoted or misinterpreted Mark Hamill as saying this game will be the last time he plays The Joker. He clarified that what he meant was he wouldn't continue playing The Joker if he felt that he couldn't top his performance, he wanted to leave on a high note. That said, [[https://twitter.com/#!/HamillHimself/status/126561371197419520 this]] would seem to suggest that he has no plans to play the Joker again in the future. [[spoiler: Then came 'VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight''...]]
