** One room in the Penitentiary area is named ''TheGreenMile'' and carved over the doorway is the Latin phrase ''[[Film/EventHorizon Liberate Me Ex Infernis]]''.

* SchrodingersGun: In the morgue, [[spoiler: during the first Scarecrow hallucination]], you are confronted with three body bags. Whatever order you open them in, the contents are always [[spoiler: Bruce's father, then his mother, and finally Scarecrow.]] Also, no matter what order you collect the audio tapes in, they are always the next one in the set. Same goes for the Spirit of Arkham messages.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptionInducedPlothole: Inverted! There are small hints that imply the game was originally going to have rainfall, as it's raining in the intro, whenever Batman is inside the medical facility, and guards and prisoners are wearing raincoats, despite the clear weather everywhere else. The remaster adds rainfall in free roam.

Added DiffLines:

* ProtagonistCenteredMorality: Batman hallucinates Gordon's corpse, but it turns out to actually be another generic cop NPC. He is still relieved.

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: The game seems to take place in the time it was made (The year before TheNewTens started) with the exception of the digital bars on cells that shock you if you try to escape

''Batman: Arkham Asylum'' is a 2009 video game developed by Rocksteady Studios and published by Eidos Interactive in conjunction with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Based on the ''{{Franchise/Batman}}'' franchise, it is the first game in the ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamSeries Batman: Arkham]]'' series. The game is loosely inspired by Creator/GrantMorrison's ''Comicbook/ArkhamAsylumASeriousHouseOnSeriousEarth'' and Dan Slott's ''Comicbook/ArkhamAsylumLivingHell''. It features some of the talent behind ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', including a storyline by series writer Creator/PaulDini and voice actors Creator/KevinConroy, Arleen Sorkin, and Creator/MarkHamill reprising their respective roles as Batman, Comicbook/HarleyQuinn, and ComicBook/TheJoker.

* RPGElements: You gain experience when you beat enemies or explore around, and when you level up, you can choose between different upgrades such as getting a new combo, getting more health, upgrading your gadgets, etc. It's firmly in the territory of this trope as there's no need for specialization: by the end of the game (assuming you've been following the Riddler challenges) you'll have enough experience for every upgrade in the game and then some.

Added DiffLines:

* EnemyPosturing:
** Employed during the boss battle with Poison Ivy. Occasionally she'll open her protective glass pod just to laugh at you, and you can hit her with a batarang when she does.
** During the final battle with [[spoiler:Titan-infused Joker]] on the roof, he'll sometimes climb up one of the towers to taunt one of the police helicopters flying overhead. When he does this, you have to use the batclaw to pull him down.

Added DiffLines:

* GiganticMoon: The game has an absolutely massive full moon hovering over Arkham Island, large enough to frame the Bat's face inside of it with your camera. It doesn't actually do anything, it's just for atmosphere. It's also backwards. The sequel continues the overly large moon trend.

* FollowTheLeader:
** The ''VideoGame/CaptainAmericaSuperSoldier'' game copies this game's basic fighting engine (though not quite as well), with a counter, dodge, stun, and attack button. It also tries to copy the Metroidvania style layout, but to less success. Still, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...
** The movie-licensed game based on ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' 2012 film goes further in copying Arkham Asylum. In addition to having the same combat system as Arkham Asylum, there are also patient interview tapes (redubbed "audio evidence tapes") and a level where Spider-Man rescues doctors from escaped patients in an asylum. The devs openly admit they used Arkham Asylum's combat because they felt it was a good fit for Spider-Man.
