They are arguably the trope's MostTriumphantExample. Related to this is...

Added DiffLines:

* LoveToHate: This version of Riddler is probably the [[Franchise/HarryPotter Dolores Umbridge]] of the ''Arkhamverse''. So detestable that he makes the main villains seem like pretenders, yet you can't help but pat Rocksteady on the back for making him so vile.

* EvenBetterSequel: ''Arkham City'' is [[http://www.gamesradar.com/why-batman-arkham-city-one-greatest-games-ever-made/ considered by some]] to be the overall best game of the franchise especially since it built on Asylum's features while adding crucial features (namely the iconic gliding and grapnel traversal mechanic where in the first game it was merely scripted), more combat and stealth options (varied combo finishers, multiple environmental takedowns), amping up the difficulty (with armored thugs and jammer-packs), adding Catwoman as a playable character, having one of the most praised boss fights in the franchise (Mr. Freeze), [[http://kotaku.com/5852095/batman-arkham-city-the-kotaku-review and for its rich storyline with its shocking twists that]] most DidntSeeThatComing: [[spoiler:the Two Jokers/Clayface reveal, and the Joker's death at the end]].

* If you find yourself having the hots for Harley Quinn ([[EvenTheGirlsWantHer even if you're a straight girl]]) in this adaptation, you're not the only one.

* CommonKnowledge: A lot of fans (and even [[Creator/JBBlanc one voice actor]]) Creator/KevinConroy had retired from the role of Batman after ''City'' with Creator/MarkHamill as the Joker, especially with the part being recast with Creator/RogerCraigSmith in ''Origins''. Eeven putting aside Hamill's FlipFlopOfGod, there's no place where Conroy said it, not only was this proven wrong [[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueDoom a couple of months later]], 2013, the same year ''Origins'' was released, also saw the release of ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueTheFlashpointParadox'', which has Conroy as Batman.

Added DiffLines:

** Part of ''Arkham Knight's'' mixed reaction is a whole other form of this; Paul Dini wrote the story of ''Asylum'' and ''City'', while another writing team handled the story of ''Origins''; neither of those writing teams were involved with ''Knight's'' story, and many fans feel that it's inferior to the eariler stories.

* LuckBasedMission: Downplayed. The replayable predator challenges are easily beatable with enough skill, as long as the random guard patterns allow so. The maps usually allow at least one medal to be easily obtainable before the guards are alerted, but once they are, you may end up waiting several minutes to get the other medals.



* {{Retcon}}: Some of the original info from ''Asylum'' character bios has been overwritten later in the series by both WB Montreal and Rocksteady.
