Though he is never seen, there is also a running sub-quest that involves solving riddles left by The Riddler. Scarface and Clayface both appear, though neither is a threat to the player.

The FAQ items below may give away important plot points.

  • Batman will send the Riddler's location to Gotham PD, and you hear his arrest over the radio. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes, but its not the "system failure" kind of crash. Before you face Scarecrow (a villain that is known for using toxins to "mess" with his victim's minds) the screen scrambles and freezes as if the system/disc failed and it plays the opening scene again but Joker is driving the Batmobile and Batman is being taken into the Asylum, so dont freak out because of the "crash", its part of the moment. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Jason Todd is not mentioned. The sidekick that Joker is referring to after the first Scarecrow encounter, when you come to Harley Quinn holding Jim Gordon captive is, in fact, Oracle, or Barbara Gordon. Barbara Gordon was at one point Batgirl, She was shot in the spine by The Joker confining her to a wheelchair. Jason Todd's death is confirmed in one of the challenge maps of Batman: Arkham City (2011) . When the Joker sees Robin (Tim Drake) in his funhouse, he asks "Didn't I kill you already?". In Batman: Arkham Knight Jason Todd is revealed to be the Arkham Knight. After being beaten nearly to death, tortured and branded by The Joker; Jason blamed Batman for his fate. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • In the Security Control Room, behind a large pane of glass. He takes the form of various people such as Quincy Sharp, but never appears in his true form. When Detective Mode is on, it can be seen that the person behind the glass has no skeleton. Edit (Coming Soon)

  • Yes. There will be one of three randomly generated cut scenes. The Batwing is shown flying back to Gotham City, then the screen lowers and we see a floating crate of Titan. The Scarecrow, Killer Croc or Bane will grab the crate of Titan. Edit (Coming Soon)
