** The Riddler is an egomaniac and TautologicalTemplar who thinks he's [[PayEvilUntoEvil Paying Evil unto Evil]] by [[InformationBroker exposing dirty secrets]] in Gotham. During one of their exchanges, Batman demands that he stop. After Riddler states that he's mainly trying to clean up the streets, entice the police to do their jobs, and remove corruption, Batman replies that this is simply blackmail. Riddler then asks [[NotSoDifferent if what he's doing is worse than beating criminals up.]]

** The Joker points out how Batman hasn't accomplished much in his war on crime in the past two years, while he has only been in Gotham ''for two weeks'' yet he's [[NiceJobFixingItVillain done more help for Gotham]] by randomly doing his [[ItAmusedMe actions]]. These action include [[PayEvilUntoEvil executing]] [[DirtyCop Commissioner Loeb]] and exposing Blackgate as a CardboardPrison. Despite being a psychopath, The Joker is ''entirely correct'' about these particular points. [[spoiler:In addition to dethroning Black Mask and replacing him.]]
** Black Mask, after you capture him, points out that he will soon go free, as his resources 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.

Needless to say, Bruce doesn't listen. Gordon also spends most of the game railing against Batman.

* YouAreNotAlone: This is Bruce's ultimate lesson right before the climax, that ignoring all potential allies and going at it alone is only leaving him with a job so monumental he is destined to fail. And that same attitude means when he actually recognizes Gordon could help him stop Firefly, Gordon isn't listening. Way too many mistakes were made before they started coordinating their efforts, by the end Gordon (with Barbara's encouragement and communication frequency) is working directly with Batman to help round up escaped Blackgate prisoners.

** A case of a ShoutOut, InternalHomage and WordOfGod clarification on series canon all in one: when The Joker's being psychoanalyzed by Harley in Blackgate, he imagines in his head how he came to be who he is. It's his origin from ''ComicBook/TheKillingJoke'': being a failed stand-up comedian and taking the deal with the mob to help with the Ace Chemicals robbery, wearing the iconic Red Hood and getting the fateful chemical bath courtesy of Batman.

** Joker's dialogue, naturally, is full of references, from quoting old Alka-Seltzer commercials to singing [[Film/TheWizardOfOz "Ding, Dong, the Bat is Dead"]]. As the credits roll, he even recites Music/HankWilliams' "Cold, Cold Heart" as a twisted ObsessionSong.

** One thug on the street can actually be overheard proposing to his friends ways to exploit the holiday, including singing carols door-to-door as a means of casing out homes, or dressing up as Santa so that they can carry around a bag of loot without suspicion. Both are dismissed as far too cliché.

** Even on harder difficulties, Predator challenges in the main story are remarkably easy. None of the thugs have the Heart Monitor system that immediately alerts their colleagues that they have a man down, the rooms are very big and easy to traverse with very little of the multi-tiered clutter that forced players to move around the room rather than stay perched on a gargoyle. The Remote Claw also makes it possible to string up mooks on vantage points without you directly standing above them. [[spoiler:The final Bane TN-1 Boss-Fight, which uses similar design as the Mister Freeze fight, i.e. attack Bane with different predator tactics as he will adapt to your variation, is harder than earlier challenges due to Bane's speed and the insane amount of damage he can cause, but it's still easier than the Mr. Freeze fight because you only need four or five moves to defeat Bane.]].
** Certain rankings on the Worst Nightmare track can only be completed by means of in-story predator challenges, [[GuideDangIt something the game itself doesn't explain]]. Due to the fact that only certain maps are conducive to certain tasks (Rank 6 and the Gotham Merchants' Bank, for example), players may have to start all over again just to make up for any lost progress.
