  • This DLC unlocks two Challenge Maps:
  • It is revealed that Tim and Barbara are on their honeymoon on an island retreat. Thus, this Arkham Episode takes place after the Catwoman's Revenge DLC, yet before the A Flip of a Coin DLC.
    • It's implied that the island retreat was a gift from Bruce, who could easily pay for it.
  • Bruce had a self-destruct mechanism put into the Bat-Signal by Lucius for the Knightfall Protocol.
    • Lucius didn't know why until then, having learned when not to question Batman. 
  • Currently, Red Hood is thought to be the protector of Gotham City as Robin is on his honeymoon and Nightwing takes care of Blüdhaven. Although the Demon-Bat last seen in the epilogue of Arkham Knight could also be protecting Gotham.
  • Lucius Fox now owns Wayne Enterprises and throws parties that are "off the chain".
    • Although he could be exaggerating as a joke to Nightwing.
  • Aaron Cash offered to repair the still broken Bat Symbol and change the logo to Nightwings so they can call him when they need him, but Nightwing turned down the offer, saying this isn't permanent. Bludhaven is his protectorate.
  • Some henchman dialogue will mention that some consider Nightwing to be Batman's replacement.
  • Tiny, or a similar shark, is seen in an aquarium. This means that either the dead shark on the docks is a different shark, or Penguin simply got another as a replacement.
  • Pictures of Two-Face and Harley Quinn can be seen around the desks in the offices once in the GCPD as well as a mention of Killer Croc under the name 'Waylon Jones' on the prisoner transfer list on some stalls in the offices.
  • This is the first Arkhamverse installment to take place during the daytime, with the A Flip of a Coin DLC arguably being the next one. To offset this, the map for the GCPD building is depicted as overcast.
  • At one point, Nightwing drops a suffix from a word (ie, saying "tractable" instead of "intractable" in reference to the Penguin thugs). This is a reference to his characterization in Young Justice, where he often used "unwords" for various situations.
