''Batman: Vengeance'' is a 2001 video game for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2, UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance, UsefulNotes/NintendoGamecube, and UsefulNotes/{{Xbox}}. Its characters are based from ''[[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries The New Batman Adventures]]''.

Tropes included:
* AbnormalAmmo: Batman's "Bat-Launcher" can fire nets, electric pellets, and electrical mines.
* BadassInDistress: Batman rescues Batgirl from Ivy's thug in one level.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:The Joker]].
* BigNo: [[spoiler:Harley does this in a high-pitched scream after the Joker falls to his apparent death.]]
* BlastingItOutOfTheirHands: Batman can do this to an armed mook via a well-placed batarang. Wait too long to engage him afterwards, though and he'll literally pull a new gun [[AssPull out of his ass]].
* BoundAndGagged: Mary Flynn [[spoiler:(actually a disguised Harley Quinn)]] at the beginning of the game.
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:The Joker]] manages to play the rest of the villains, and even Batman like a finely-tuned Stradivarius.
* ClearMyName
* CombatTentacles: Combat ''vines'', but the effect is the same.
* CoatHatMask: Ivy's thug employs this with BandagedFace standing in for a mask.
* ContinuityNod: The Joker provides one while clinging to a ledge.
-->'''Joker:''' Seems like old times, eh, Bats? You, me, a vat of chemicals?
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler:Averted. It is revealed that Joker has faked his death. And then averted again when he tries it for real.]]
* DrivenToSuicide[=/=]TogetherInDeath: [[spoiler:Harley attempts this by jumping off the cliff after the Joker; but Batman can defy this.]]
** [[spoiler: Joker also attempts to commit suicide at the end of the game, and Batman once again puts a stop to it.]]
* DropTheHammer: Harley's specialty.
* EvilGloating: [[spoiler:The Joker]] takes time to smugly monologue to Batman about his master plan near the end of the game.
* FreeFallFight: [[spoiler:The final level involves this, combined with SaveTheVillain.]]
* GameplayRoulette: It's a third-person action game, a stealth-based game, a fighting game, a first-person shooter, a puzzle game, a driving simulator, and a flying simulator.
* GoodOldFisticuffs: The Joker tries to take Batman on this way, but when he starts to lose he pulls [[KnifeNut a knife]] and [[NeverBringAKnifeToAFistFight promptly gets taken down]].
* GottaCatchEmAll: The five "secret" envelopes scattered throughout the game. ''And they are very deviously hidden.'' [[spoiler: When you finish the game the first time around, these envelopes can unlock useful cheats such as an inexhaustible utility belt.]]
* HarmlessFreezing: Practiced by Mr. Freeze. [[UpToEleven Taken to the extreme]] when Batman must rescue Freeze's flash-frozen victims by punching them until the ice breaks.
* HaveANiceDeath: The Game Over screen adds a brief text based on which stage you lost.
* JokerImmunity: Turned on its head. [[spoiler:Joker attempts to revoke his own JokerImmunity by killing himself. Only your saving him]] will prevent a NonStandardGameOver.
* JustifiedTutorial: The training simulation Batman runs in the Batcave functions at this.
* ManipulativeBastard: [[spoiler:Joker]], considering the fact that Batman is manipulated into furthering his plan.
* MissionControl: Batgirl.
* MonsterClown: [[spoiler:The Joker. Who else?]]
* MythologyGag: Batgirl's role as MissionControl and exposition provider brings to mind her persona as Oracle in the comics.
* NonLethalKO: Being that Batman [[ThouShaltNotKill never uses deadly force]], he must either cuff or tie up defeated enemies, lest they get back up and attack him again.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Joker stops Harley mid-hammer swing for this reason.
-->'''Joker:''' "You're supposed to be my hench-wench. Less wench, more hench, you molly-coddling little twit! Nobody kills the Bat but me!"
* PaperThinDisguise: [[spoiler:Harley Quinn as Mary Flynn.]] Even Batman falls for it.
* PlantPeople: Ivy employs some as {{Mooks}}.
* PunchClockVillain: The Joker's henchmen, who complain in an early cutscene about their low salaries, considering they are expected to be fighting Batman.
--> '''Thug:''' I mean, when we was working for The Penguin, we was gettin' benefits and a 401k."
* RhymesOnADime: Some of the Joker's clues are mostly this. Example:
-->"Mix and match the chemical dyes:\\
A chemistry lesson, a roll of the dice.\\
My two favorite colors are worth a try,\\
But too much mixing, and everyone dies!"
* SadisticChoice: The Joker offers Batman the choice to either defeat him or save the little boy (Toby Flynn) before dropping the boy from the wrecking ball. [[spoiler:Batman saves "Toby", but it's too bad that the "boy" is a dummy set up by none other than Harley Quinn.]]
* SaveTheVillain: The final battle involves Batman and the Joker in free fall as the Joker throws everything he has to prevent Batman from saving him. [[HaveANiceDeath Death is not a substitute for justice.]]
* ShockAndAwe: Electric Batarangs. They're a OneHitKill against Poison Ivy's, ah, ''hench-plants''.
* ShoutOut: The Joker tells Batman that Prometheum and Joker Toxin are "two great deaths that kill great together," a nod to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
** [[ShoutOut/ToShakespeare Shout-Out: To Shakespeare]]: The Joker stands on a wrecking ball as he misquotes ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}'' ("Toby, or not Toby, that is the question. Catch the Joker or save the lad? Ay, there's the rub!")
* SmokeOut: Batman carries a supply of smoke pellets for this purpose.
* {{Unobtainium}}: Prometheum, a formula that's used in cryogenics but [[IncendiaryExponent catches fire easily]]. For whatever reason, Mr. Freeze is ''very'' upset about it.
* WhatTheHellPlayer: A few of the "Mission Failed" messages. "Death is not justice, not even for the Joker."
* YouAreTooLate: [[spoiler:At the start of the climax in the blimp, the Joker says this to Batman before adding that he has set the auto-pilot to make "a laugh-tastic landing in the heart of Gotham".]]
* YoureInsane: An example where it's not said to a villain.
-->'''Batman''': Any evidence that Mary could come up with five million dollars?
-->'''Batgirl''': No way. That's insane.
-->'''Batman''': Joker's insane, but not stupid.
