** Batman himself acts like a {{Jerkass}} numerous times in the story, particulary to Alfred who just wants him to be safe, but he correctly points out that ignoring all the assassins would just make them use civilians as hostages to lure him out. Adding to that, Alfred urges him to work with Gordon numerous times in the story, but Batman tells him even if he wanted to, Gordon certainly wouldn't, which he is also right about. It's only after [[spoiler:Firefly's defeat where Batman and Gordon come even close to being civil with each other]].

** This happens to Commissioner Loeb, when Black Mask [[spoiler:(or rather the Joker)]] decides that the nature of crime is changing, and that he doesn't need his help anymore when it also includes taking down his men. ** [[spoiler:When Joker took over Black Mask's operation, he killed almost a quarter of his men because they wouldn't take orders from him.]] * YourPrincessIsInAnotherCastle: [[spoiler:Happens in the final battle with Bane. After you have shocked him in traps and drained all his energy down to one hit point, you may think this is over when he falls to the ground. Then, just when Batman radios Alfred and says, "Alfred, it's over... I've defeated Bane"... all of a sudden Bane gets up and hits him very hard, and then you realize that the muscleman is not finished yet, and that you need to counter with the Remote Claw to subdue him and defeat him for good.]] * ZeroEffortBoss: Electrocutioner. After a big, showoffy introduction, he goes down with one kick to the face. Then again, that may also have to do with the fact that his electrified powersuit came into contact with a metal grate and possibly shorted out.

Notably, Rocksteady did not develop the game - [[BTeamSequel instead, WB Montreal (who did the Wii U port for ''Arkham City'') took up the reins]], allowing Rocksteady to focus on making ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight''. Similarly, the voice actors for Batman and Joker, Creator/KevinConroy and Creator/MarkHamill, have been [[TheOtherDarrin replaced]] by Creator/RogerCraigSmith and Creator/TroyBaker respectively. Both voice actors do admirable impersonations of their predecessors, reflecting the game's status as a prequel.

* BookEnds: The story begins and ends [[spoiler:at Blackgate Prison]]. And both missions there end with [[spoiler:Gordon having Batman at gunpoint but failing to capture him]]. Series-wise, [[spoiler:this game, which deals with the start of the Batman/Joker feud in the Arkhamverse, ends the same way ''Arkham City'', which saw the end of the feud, did: the Joker singing.]]

* CombatSadomasochist: [[spoiler:The Joker. Especially apparent in the chapel during his and Batman's [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown (very one-sided) fight.]]]]

Added DiffLines:
*FoeRomanceSubtext: The game alludes to this when [[spoiler:Batman is giving the Joker a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown in the chapel. The Joker is evidently enjoying it, and Batman's suggestive grunts and movements greatly increase the moment's UST.]] **There's also the scene where [[spoiler:he gets psychoanalyzed by Harley (then Harleen) and begins to describe feelings she interprets as [[FoeYay love,]] which he doesn't deny, and instead uses to manipulate her.]]

Added DiffLines:
* InLoveWithYourCarnage: [[spoiler:The Joker]] has an obvious fascination with Batman's [[ThouShaltNotKill moral code,]] and is fixated on making him break it, even at the expense of [[spoiler:his own life.]]

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Batman has defeated Black Mask and his assassins, ingratiated himself with the police, and managed to make Gotham less of a hellhole, but Black Mask's fall leads to a power vacuum in Gotham's underworld that [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker a certain clown]] steps in to fill, [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum and we all know how that goes]].]]

** The [[spoiler: real]] Black Mask, after you capture him, points out that he will soon go free, as his resouirces are enough to buy or threaten the officials to release him, the judicial system (at least in Gotham) is a lie, and Batman is the sigh of this. Add Anarky's information and your own knowledge about Gotham City, and it's difficult to disagree with his point.

How To Create A Works Page "Things not to include: quality judgements (don't say how much it sucked/how awesome it was), critical reception (that's just a specific variant of quality judgements), recommendations (don't tell us whether or not we should check it out)"
Although the game received positive reviews from most critics, it was not as acclaimed as its predecessors and is heavily criticized by fans due to its game breaking bugs (particularly on the 360 and PC versions) and lack of originality.

* PowerupLetdown: Concussion Grenade essentially serves no purpose in what its intended to be (Helping Predator encounters but it doesn't do anything useful to even consider one) with Glue Grenade completely outclassing the gadget once Batman obtains the item.

That is YMMV.
* EvilIsSexy: Copperhead. [[DoesNotWearShoes Barefoot]], [[HellBentForLeather leather-clad]], [[DanceBattler acrobatic]], and has a really nice derrière.
