* BatmanGrabsAGun: While he doesn't actually use a firearm, Batman ''does'' resort to using lethal force on two different bosses. The first is [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Solomon]] [[ResurrectiveImmortality Grundy]], who can't be stopped by anything less, and the second is [[spoiler:[[BlobMonster Clayface]]]], who's immune to all of Batman's conventional tactics.

* NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup: This trope is what leads to the endgame: [[spoiler:Batman is able to get a sample of Ra's al Ghul's blood and get it back to Mr. Freeze to make the cure. Freeze makes two copies of the cure, but to force Batman into finding and rescuing Nora, Freeze destroys one sample and locks away another, leading to the two fighting and Harley stealing the cure under their noses. While the heroes are able to create copies to save those poisoned by the Joker outside of Arkham City, the Joker ends up causing his own death by stabbing Batman and causing him to drop the cure.]]

* BadassInANiceSuit: Albeit tattered by the time the fists fly. The game prologue starts off as BruceWayneHeldHostage, finding himself being processed into Arkham City after the TYGER security goons trample all over his and the press gathering's first amendment rights. He throws down with a few thugs in processing despite handcuffs, and then ''breaks out'' of the handcuffs as he trounces all of the thugs The Penguin gathers. Shortly after, he suits up properly in his body-armored Batman costume.

* BadassGrandpa: One of the downloadable skins is 55-year old Batman from ''ComicBook/BatmanTheDarkKnightReturns''. He is no less capable in combat than his younger iterations and, amusingly, his flirtatious banter with the now much younger Catwoman and Talia doesn't change - making him look like a DirtyOldMan.
