* PlayerHeadquarters: Batman has a Batcave installed on Arkham Island, [[CrazyPrepared in prepartion for a stituation such as one that occurs in the game.]] However, it really only fits this trope from a story standpoint, as there's no benefit to visiting it outside of certain story events, as it doesn't provide any of the usual benefits like health restoration or saving.

** In Predator Mode, Mooks never start panicking until they actually find the unconscious bodies of their fellow mooks. You learn to clear entire rooms with nobody catching on that you're there. NOW YOU'RE THE GODDAMN BATMAN.

** When you first take a trip into the sewers, if you go right to the locked door that leads deeper into Croc's part of the sewers he jumps up and punches the window hard enough to crack it, snarling that he'll crunch your bones. Of course, you can't get in just yet. But when you go back, the window is cracked. If you didn't encounter him, the window isn't cracked.

* 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.
