* FreudWasRight: [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything Poison]] [[FoeYay Ivy's]] [[OrgasmicCombat boss]] [[RuleOfSymbolism fight]] is full of this. During her boss fight, Ivy takes the form of a flower that opens and closes, all while on top of a giant shaft...it's essentially both types of genitalia combined into one. i.e. the most Freudian thing possible. It doesn't help that Batman has to essentially defeat her by [[DoubleEntendre puncturing her barrier with explosive gel and deflowering her]] while she screams in a suggestive wail.

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenBase: The Scarecrow segments. Some consider them to be among the best scenes in the game, while others argue that they're not actually scary, take way too long and only distract from the story and regular gameplay. There's a third camp that likes the MindScrew parts but dislikes the sidescroller gameplay.

* CrazyAwesome: Joker in a nutshell, when playing as him. The guy can leapfrog over attackers, he uses a joy-buzzer and a comical eye-poke in combat and can use chattering teeth bombs in his predator challenges, yet he can still be as {{Badass}} as Batman.

* ThatOneBoss: Poison Ivy. It starts off easy enough, but her second phase is pure undiluted hell, especially on Hard mode. Between her fast projectiles, her constant vine waves (which seem to have a bigger hitbox than they really seem) and her hypnotized henchmen joining the fun, it's a miracle players would be able to take down her second phase on their first try. Couple that with the fact that the only real way you can hit her is with Batarangs and Explosive Gel when she goes down in that short time frame you get to hit her, and you've got one of the hardest bosses in the game.

** After reading the Arkham Knight comic book, [[spoiler: we find out that Joker was planning to force Jason and Batman fight each other on the finale. While his behaviour has always has been disturbing, the fact that Joker just jokes and laughs while planning a Mentor-Sidekick (Father-Adopted son in Bruce's POV) fight-to-the-death deathmatch makes the fight even more dark.]]

* AntiClimaxBoss: [[spoiler: Titan Joker]]. The fight all of the plot was leading up to, the final showdown, and it turns out to be a fight [[spoiler: primarily with the mooks instead,]] with a very predictable attack pattern.

* MostWonderfulSound:
** Unlocking new collectibles or finding Riddler trophies provides a rather nice noise that confirms you're making progress.
** Poison Ivy's [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything suggestive]] [[OrgasmicCombat screams]] to some.



** Joker Teeth. It might have something to do with them not being an actual riddle, tape, or Arkham chronicle. Also, while about 90% of the teeth show up more or less naturally as a result of the story progression, there's that set that hide above the hallway to the warden's office, which happens after the player has realized this, and then notice they missed them after the sequence is over.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** According to some interviews, the Mad Hatter was originally going to appear in the game, but was edited out for time. He wouldn't be used until ''Arkham City''.
** All the super criminals listed on Harley Quinn's party list were A-list Batman villains apparently held within the asylum during the campaign, but escaped before Batman could even interact with them.
* UnintentionallySympathetic: Killer Croc earns a little sympathy from some ''Batman'' fans due to his primary motivation being his search for a cure to his hideous physical condition.
* VisualEffectsOfAwesome: The entire game as a whole is full of amazing graphics that are very appealing to one's eyes.
