YMMV: Arkham Asylum: Living Hell

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Did Batman really think Scarecrow was behind the events of the comic, or did he just tell Dr. Arkham that for the staff's own peace of mind? (It's not like Batman hasn't had his fare share of supernatural experiences)
    • Also, did the jury really buy Warren's Insanity Defense, or did they send him to punish him more than the law would otherwise allow them?
  • Crowning Moment of Awesome:
  • Magnificent Bastard: Warren, but not until he finally goes crazy
  • Nightmare Fuel
    • Anytime we see anything from Doodlebug's point-of-view
    • Anytime Death Rattle shows up. All he has to do is sit there and you're terrified. In terms of scariness, he could definitely give Hannibal Lecter a run for his money.
    • Everything about Jane Doe.
    • Warren White's metamorphosis throughout the whole story is this. Especially after being locked up in Mr. Freeze's ice cold cell which lead to his iconic disfigurement.
  • Squick
  • Tear Jerker: Aaron's back story
    • Humpty Dumpty's back story. A kind, gentle guy whose life was a series of bad luck since childhood. As a child, his house was demolished by accident, dog ran over by an ice cream truck, and parents crushed by their Christmas tree. Then he was taken in by his physically abusive grandmother, who beat him and forced him to repair shoes for her. But he remains a kind, gentle guy, and all his crimes are merely him trying to fix problems in the world, even the the murder and stitching of his grandmother.
