* GlassCannon: SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker, in the [=PS3=] exclusive mode where you play as him. This is because, unlike Batman, he's got no problem with using {{lethal|JokeCharacter}} [[JustForPun force]]. [[MundaneSolution He can actually shoot people]], and carries some very deadly explosive teeth. He's a lot less bullet-resistant than Batman, though.

* MysteriousBacker: In ''Road to Arkham'', a prequel tie-in comic to ''Arkham Asylum'', Batman notes that all three of his captures (including SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker) were given via anonymous tips, and he has a gut feeling that they are from the same person, asking Oracle to go over the tips. Who the anonymous tipster was is unknown, although evidence from this game as well as the sequel implies that it is either [[spoiler:Quincy Sharp, Professor Strange, or Ra's Al Ghul.]]

* PoliceAreUseless: The GCPD's main role in this game is to quarantine Arkham Island, and to arrest all surviving villains at the end of the game. They aren't even visible until the end cutscene. Island-side, Arkham's security demonstrates a complete inability to stand up to armed criminals and mutants. [[HilariousInHindsight Looking back,]] it's actually kind of funny that SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker escapes from them as soon as he's more than thirty feet away from Batman.

* RewardedAsATraitorDeserves: [[spoiler: Guard Boles.]] It's also YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness but there is an undercurrent of this. Though SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker would certainly have killed him no matter what he did.

* ShippedInShackles: This is how SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker was wheeled into Arkham in the first scene. [[spoiler: Batman gets the same treatment later in a Scarecrow-induced hallucination.]]

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Unlike the other ''Arkham'' games, this one is more linear than its sequels, which are open world and feature plenty of sidequests (whereas the first game relies mostly on the Riddler's Collection Sidequest). It also lacks Batman's ability to slide while running, fire the Batclaw in mid-air and incorporate it during gliding. [[spoiler: Also, the Joker doesn't sing during the end credits.]]
