Actually it is, since the authors were working with Rocksteady to craft the stories.

Trimming the example—this much detail isn't necessary. | That's not Comically Missing The Point. They don't know his parents are dead. This also is not a mom joke, as it is not insulting his mother.

This trope isn't about surviving great heights, it's about doing so by coming to a sudden stop just before hitting the ground. I'm not even sure how Ra's example even applies. | Not So Above It All is about a Straight Man in a comedy falling to pettiness, silliness, or some other sort of behavior they tried to be better than. It's not about a hero becoming too aggressive and prideful to get the job done. | Natter. | Mark Hamill retiring hasn't stopped them from having Joker in a prequel, so no, it's not because of that. | Clayface's mixing with the Lazarus pit is treated in game as just ruining the Lazarus pit, not a sequel hook. And the Arkham World script /was/ a joke. | That's a Mythology Gag, and using your arm for swordblocks isn't uncommon enough in fiction for that to count anyway. | The final villain is Clayface, and those are standard features he comes with. If it's a shoutout, this game isn't the one making it. | more Mythology Gags | Again, Unhinged isn't canon. | Not the trope—he tosses her aside. He doesn't just grab her and render her helpless. | Vicki Vale is not stripperific, and there are female characters in the game dressed appropriately. Minor ones, but still. Ivy also has plants in her lair, so yes, we can assume it's warmer in there.

Mythology Gag is for jokes or nods to things not within the canon of the work itself—Harley's asylum outfit is a Continuity Nod. Victor's origin story is not a gag, it's canon. Bloodhaven and Metropolis are cities in this canon, not shoutouts. The timed sniper rifle is a part of the story and not just a gag. Etc. | The way Batman carries Joker and Jason is not limited to just those scenes—it's a pretty common way to carry someone. This trope is deliberate shout outs, not just things that happen to be similar or borrow similar ideas.

Ivy's toxins could have mixed with the Titan to make her own form of the blood poisoning. | This trope is about characters who expect to die soon (both Batman and Joker were acting to save themselves, not to have one last Hurrah.). | Removing natter and spoilers on The Magic Poker Equation (not every bit of late revealed backstory is a major plot twist). | More Than Mind Control is when the villain does a lot of things to prep the person for mind control first (like stockholm syndrome), not just a case where the hero may have been mind controlled.

the Five Bad Band examples don't count. The Arkham City plot people don't function as a band, and neither does Joker's team. | That's not Foreshadowing, that's a Red Herring. | The gunshots and screeching bats is not Foreshadowing for the game's plot, just a nod to how his parents died. | Potholing his comic series is both unnecessary and ruins the spoiler | Foreshadowing that was in Arkham Asylum can go in that game's page. | Joker is dead, and so anything suggesting he isn't can't be Foreshadowing. Just another red herring. | That's not a freeze frame bonus—it isn't quick enough. | Genre Savvy example is Wrong Genre Savvy as Joker is officially dead.

Pruning some of Dev Team Thinks Of Everything, as this is for anticipating obscure or unprompted actions in gameplay and providing content acknowledging that the player did so, not just any details or level design features. The entry's also long enough as it is without listing the aversions. | Sharks are cold blooded and have no skeletons. He wouldn't see it past the ice with Detective Mode anyway. | An inversion of this trope would be giving special benefits to people playing on Easy. | Whether Robin and Nightwing talk or not has no relevance to Enemy Chatter. | Even if Harley and Joker did have a child, there's nothing saying the fetus is evil just because its parents are.
