* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The Pact is shut down, the Joker is sent back to Arkham regardless of whether he became a villain or vigilante, and Waller pulls the Agency out of Gotham, promising not to reveal Batman's identity. Alfred, however, can no longer stomach working for Bruce (fearing that he is turning into what his father became), and effectively gives Bruce an ultimatum to either give up being Batman or lose his services.]]

** And the major choice leading into the climax of Episode 5 is [[spoiler:whether or not to reveal your identity to Lady Arkham - doing so causes her to suffer a minor VillainousBSOD because she's convinced that Bruce Wayne could ''never'' be as selfless as Batman, before twisting it in her mind that this just means Batman is his outlet to wreak the same kind of havoc that his father did]].

** At the end of Episode 5, [[spoiler:Lady Arkham threatens to kill Alfred unless Batman reveals his true identity to her. If you unmask, Bruce gets a chunk of his ear blown off by Lady Arkham's staff. If you refuse and try to attack, Alfred gets free, but gets blasted in the face in the ensuing struggle; it's later revealed that he lost one of his eyes and has to wear an eyepatch. Either way, someone isn't walking away from that final battle without a permanent reminder...]]

-> '''Harley''': Poor John. He just...doesn’t know who he is yet. You know...he’s searching. Highly impressionable.

Added DiffLines:

* LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn: In Episode 5 [[spoiler:Villain Route]], before the battle against [[spoiler:Joker and Harley]] one of the henchmen turns on a gramophone to play music. The gramophone is still running during the battle but the music is appropriately intense.


* FiveBadBand: The Pact
** TheBigBad: Riddler [[spoiler: but subverted when he dies early on]]
** TheDragon: Harley Quinn [[spoiler: and a rather prompt DragonAscendant]]
** TheEvilGenius: Mr. Freeze
** TheBrute: Bane
** TheDarkChick: John Doe [[spoiler: but subverted in that he's the last remaining member and arguably the most dangerous]]


* YouCan'tThwartStageOne: [[spoiler:Batman can and does in fact. The Children of Arkham planned to spray Gotham with PsychoSerum using a train that goes through the busiest parts of the city. Batman blows up the train and their supply of PsychoSerum. This combined with Dent's extreme actions against the Children of Arkham basically scuttles all their plans. Ultimately, Lady Arkham is forced into a plan B which is to cause a jailbreak at Arkham Asylum. This is little more than petty revenge as the police round up nearly all the escaped inmates rather quickly and Lady Arkham herself gets crushed by falling debris beneath Arkham Asylum.]]

* SequelHook: At a speech at the end of the game, a man will try to either assassinate Bruce Wayne or Acting Commissioner Gordon (depending if you chose to show up as Bruce or Batman). The ending shows that [[spoiler:the Joker pulled that off as he watches the report, either telling Bruce he'll see him soon or that it'll be hard to top that.]]
