Added DiffLines:

* UrbanRuins:
** ''Arkham City'''s titular city is a rotting, sequestered part of Gotham that has been fractured by flooding, earthquakes and bombings from the various gangs imprisoned in the City. The entire place is littered with starving criminals fighting over limited food drops. [[spoiler:This is especially prominent after Protocol 10 removes a fifth of the population and sets some of the city's landmarks aflame.]]
** ''Arkham Knight'' sees the entirety of Gotham City evacuated after a terrorist threat from the Scarecrow, leaving Batman's RoguesGallery to burn the fire stations, prey on remaining civilians and tear apart Gotham's banks. Not to mention the army of tanks and drones the [[TheDragon Arkham Knight]] sets loose. [[spoiler:This is especially prominent after the Scarecrow releases the Cloudburst, blanketing the city streets in Fear gas.]]

** ''Knight'': Not in the main plot, but the DLC and an EasterEgg. Said Easter Egg? [[spoiler: Setting the clock to 10/31 sees Kirk Langstrom transform back into Man-Bat and escape from the GCPD. Whereas the Season of Infamy DLC's Kiler Croc mission has a brief one at Iron Heights Penitentiary, and two of the Arkham Episodes have Penguin and Riddler making failed attempts, and a third one sees Two-Face having a successful, albeit brief, one.]]

Each game revolves around the inmates of the infamous ArkhamAsylum, the mental institution that holds (or [[CardboardPrison fails to hold]]) all of Batman's insane foes. ''Asylum'' has ComicBook/TheJoker seizing control of Arkham Island and freeing all the other inmates, including the Bat-rogues. ''City'' takes place a year later, with Batman caught up in a plan to imprison Arkham's inmates in a walled-off area of Gotham City that includes pivotal locations in Batman's history, including [[DeathByOriginStory Crime Alley]] and [[CreateYourOwnVillain Ace Chemicals]]. ''Origins'' is a {{prequel}} detailing how Batman first met several of his enemies, including Joker, ComicBook/{{Bane}}, ComicBook/{{Deadshot}}, and the Riddler. ''Knight'' is the supposed finale of the series, in which Batman battles Scarecrow and an alliance of villains as they attempt to burn Gotham City to the ground.

* EasterEgg: The Arkham games are famous for their incredibly subtle and clever Easter Eggs; some of them are incorporated into Riddler trophies, others simply visual details there for the fans to pick up, but its most famous ones are those that [[DidntSeeThatComing nobody noticed]] until the developers revealed it. In ''Arkham Asylum'', there was a secret room announcing the Arkham City plan that nobody found until it was outed a year later by the developers; in ''Arkham City'', two years after the game's release, it was revealed (in a video some suspected was also released by the developers, on a YouTube channel with a cryptic pseudonym) that [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=temF1OFCIPg there was a secret conversation with Calendar Man]] referencing Rocksteady and ''Arkham Knight''.

* CallForward: Joker's hair was darkened a bit in ''Return To Arkham'' remaster, so it matches the color in ''Knight''. (Which got darker to match with ''Origins'')

** Within the series itself, ''Underworld'' sees Dino Andrade reprise the role of the Scarecrow after the character himself was absent in ''City'' and recast with Creator/JohnNoble in ''Knight''.
