* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:Batman has defeated false Black Mask (the Joker) and his assassins, ingratiated himself with the police, and managed to make Gotham less of a hellhole, but true 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]].]]

* HaveANiceDeath: As expected for a Batman title, there are various examples featuring the villains appropriate to their areas in the game or the gang who just defeated you. [[spoiler:And if you die in the Sionis Steel Mill too early in the game, you get SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, effectively spoiling TheReveal of his role later on.]]

* OneDialogueTwoConversations: After Batman captures [[spoiler:SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, his psychiatric session with ComicBook/HarleyQuinn falls squarely into this - she believes he's referring to her, while he's actually talking [[FoeYay about Batman]].]]

** Upon TheReveal, [[spoiler:this also is shown to be an origin for SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, as, while he was still a villain, he goes FromNobodyToNightmare, from a virtual unknown to taking over Black Mask's operation, in this game. It also serves as a starting point for the full Joker-Batman feud]].

The PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game also include multiplayer. Players must take control of armed thugs in the Joker or Bane's gang, and try to kill each other while also fighting off two players stalking them as Batman and Robin.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: The PS3 version reverses the trigger controls compared to ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Arkham City]]''; so in the middle of a fight, meaning to quick-fire a Batarang, one can easily switch on Detective Vision by mistake.

** Xbox 360 in particular is extremely glitch-prone, to the point of becoming nigh unplayable; think the PS3 version of Skyrim. Entire save files can become corrupted, and despite the developers' claims, the infinite falling bug has not been patched.

** Barbara Gordon (before she gets shot by the Joker and becomes Oracle) even lampshades this trope at one point by sarcastically asking the cops "What decade do you think we're in?"

* ComicBookFantasyCasting: Copperhead looks a lot like Music/MileyCyrus.



** Some gadgets like the remote claw and glue grenade are incredibly useful in gameplay and don't appear in later canon, but the developers commented that it is well established that Batman has so many gadgets he doesn't take all of them out every night, explaining their absence. The remote claw is useful but not as versatile as the line launcher (and the grapnel boost has mild differences to the grapnel accelerator), while things like the "scrubbing mode" for Detective Vision is pure GameplayAndStorySegregation, he ''can'' do it in later games but the fine controls are not available to the player (He does use it again in ''Arkham Knight'', albeit only once). The glue grenades disintegrated, according to Alfred, in "Cold Cold Heart", further suggesting a constant evolution of gadgets rather than conveniently not having them.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: All that Boyle would have had to do in order to avoid everything that happened during "Cold, Cold Heart" is [[spoiler:honor the agreement he made with Fries back when he first hired him]].



* {{Covert Pervert}}s: The boys down in the SWAT division have adjusted their security camera feeds to monitor places of interest -- the holding cells, the bullpen, [[BreadEggsMilkSquick the womens' locker room...]]

Added DiffLines:

* AmbiguousTimePeriod: Par for the course for comic adaptations due to the FloatingTimeline. But 'Origins is even more noticeable than usual because it is a prequel to 'Asylum and 'City and yet technology seems to be more advanced than ever.
