The Batcave is a predator challenge map in Batman: Arkham City. The challenge consists of several TYGER guards, and takes place on the iconic Batcave. It's one of the three DLC challenge maps that aren't a part of any character DLC, along with Iceberg Lounge VIP Room and The Joker's Carneval.

A remastered version of the challenge map appeared in Batman: Arkham Knight, as a part of the community challenge pack.

  • This is one of the three challenge maps in City in which The Riddler isn't providing the commentary, and is replaced with the Batcomputer. The other's are Iceberg Lounge VIP Room and The Joker's Carnival, which feature The Penguin and The Joker, respectively.
  • The cave includes several Easter eggs and references to the Batman lore, such as a robotic dinosaur and the tires that Jason Todd was trying to steal from the Batmobile on his first appearance on the comics.
    • In both games, the robotic dinosaur can be interacted with a button near it. In Knight, it can also be activated with the RHD, being marked as "Unstable material". In addition, it's a targetable location with the Voice Synthesizer, but the announcer won't say anything.
