  • Reference to the LOST TV Show

    You can find a reference to the hit ABC TV Show “Lost” within Batman: Arkham City! At one time Lost was the most popular television series of all time. So popular in fact, that even The Joker, voiced by Mark Hamill, is a fan!

    You’ll find the reference during The Joker’s small speech within the main campaign. But you have to be paying attention or you’ll miss the reference!

    This video shows the Lost Reference in Batman: Arkham Asylum during The Joker’s Speech.

    “How come it all ended in a church?” :mrgreen:

    Oh and on a related note, at random you can hear thugs saying: “I forget, do they ever explain what the island WAS?”

    Secret Ship Hatch Easter Egg

    This secret ship hatch can be found in the Industrial District at the North Gotham Dock, on the wooden ship next to the buoy with the red blinking light. Stand on top of the square wooden entrance hatch at the front of the ship (closest to the buoy). Now you must target the access door by hacking into the Gotham Municipal Network with the security password “CITYOF TERROR”. Then the ship’s hatch with slide open and you can go down the stairs into the eerie ship’s hold.

    Bruce Wayne’s Parents Crime Alley Easter Egg

    Head over to the Crime Alleyway, southwest of the Church / Medical Center (on your map, it’s above the letters saying Restricted Area). You should see two crayon silhouettes on the ground (those stand for the parents of the protagonist Bruce Wayne). Right next to them is a rose. Make sure that the area has been cleared out of enemies and activate the rose. Batman will kneel down and music will begin to play. Don’t do anything for 1 minute and the Trophy / Achievement will pop up saying “Pay Your Respects – A moment of remembrance”.

    Lightsaber Easter Egg

    There’s a Lightsaber from Star Wars in the Circuit Box that Batman finds in the DeadShot side mission.
    I’m sure I don’t need to tell anyone this is likely a reference to Mark Hamill, who voices the Joker in the game, of his role as Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy.

    Secret Radio Messages

    There are secret radio messages you can decode in the game when you’re looking for Riddler frequencies. If you tune to the right frequency on the radio, you’ll hear someone reading off numbers.
    1. The first one was easy to decode (A = 1, B = 2, etc.) and says “I will return Batman”.
    2. I haven’t figured out the second one though: 3 20 26 18 26 16 24 1 11 4 24 9 3 8 5 2 12 18 6 16 7 11 3 10 17 5 13 4 21 8

      If you go to the Museum. Once you get to where you would fight all of Penguins thugs in the one room surrounded by the 3 gates you can unlock the centre gate. Go through there and there is a breakable window, keep going until you get to the corner. If you look down at the puddle of water, Gotham City is reflected in it. Look up and there should be a book above it saying as the title GOTHAM. My favourite Easter Egg.

      Guys, i think i found a new Easter egg.*SPOILER ALERT* If you hang around a bit in the room outside the office in the steel mill right after you enter through the chimney and beat up some thugs, but before you save Dr. Stacy Baker, you hear Harley Quinn talking about how Joker looks perfect, and then something like “Oh, its not really you , is it?’ possibly revealing part of the end of the game.

      When you fight Two-Face as Catwoman he quotes Nicholson’s Joker and in an uncanny way says, “my right hand. ..uhguy,” when talking to his thugs.
