* SpecialEffectFailure: The Sanatorium is apparently the only place on the island experiencing a thunderstorm. This is fixed in the remastered version, which has it raining throughout the entire game.

Added DiffLines:

** Rain in the remaster. Some feel that it's completely unnecessary and ruins the athmosphere, while others feel like it adds some life to the barren overworld, looks better, and adds consistency in the game's schizophrenic weather. [[labelnote: Explanation]] It's raining in the intro, it's not raining during gameplay, yet it's raining when Batman is in the sanitarium.[[/labelnote]]

* 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.

** Batman's confrontation with Killer Croc. If it works for you, Croc's lair is a tense slog through a NightmareFuel factory; if it doesn't, it's just tedious.

* NarmCharm: Some of the cheesier lines come off as more than a little amusing when spoken by the always-stoic Creator/KevinConroy. You have to wonder how in the world Batman can keep a straight face spouting lines like "I eat punks like these for breakfast." On the other hand, it makes for a great BadassBoast.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/MiddleEarthShadowOfMordor'' drew its combat from the Arkham games, and they also sought to make a licensed product entirely separate from the movies and more suited to the videogame medium, which they saw ''Arkham Asylum'' as an example of it being done right.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader:
** The ''VideoGame/CaptainAmericaSuperSoldier'' game copies this game's basic fighting engine (though not quite as well), with a counter, dodge, stun, and attack button. It also tries to copy the Metroidvania style layout, but to less success. Still, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...
** The movie-licensed game based on ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' 2012 film goes further in copying Arkham Asylum. In addition to having the same combat system as Arkham Asylum, there are also patient interview tapes (redubbed "audio evidence tapes") and a level where Spider-Man rescues doctors from escaped patients in an asylum. The devs openly admit they used Arkham Asylum's combat because they felt it was a good fit for Spider-Man.

* 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.
