Batman: Arkham Knight

2015 video game

Batman: Arkham Knight is a 2015 action-adventure video game developed by Rocksteady Studios and released by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. Arkham Knight is written by Sefton Hill, and is based on the franchise's long-running comic book mythos. In the game's main storyline, nine months have passed since the Joker's death and Scarecrow, the Arkham Knight and Deathstroke attack Gotham on Halloween. The game's leading characters are predominantly voiced by actors from the DC Animated Universe, with Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill reprising their roles as Batman and the Joker, respectively. Unlike the previous Arkham games, it received an M rating.

Batman/Bruce Wayne Edit

  • [to Joker] You're afraid of being ashes. You're afraid of being forgotten. And you will be forgotten, Joker. Because of me.
  • [to Simon Stagg] Tell me how to stop the Cloudburst, or so help me I will hold you responsible for each and every person Scarecrow has killed!
  • [to Joker] I am vengeance. I am the night! I am Batman!
  • [to Alfred] Prepare the Knightfall Protocol.
  • [to Penguin] DO NOT LIE TO ME.
  • [to Alfred] It's what you taught me. Do the right thing. That's all that matters.
  • [to Nightwing] I won't be satisfied 'til I bring Penguin to justice.
  • [to Jim Gordon] It's done. Gotham is safe.
  • [to Scarecrow] What's wrong? Scared?
  • I'm going to show the Arkham Knight what happens when he messes with my city.
  • I'm going to show Crane what happens when he messes with my city.
  • [to Jim Gordon] Look after him, Jim. Look after them all. You've been a good friend. The best I could ask for. You were there at the beginning. Now, you get to see how it ends.
  • Gotham needs something more, something... worse to defend her. She needs a new myth, a legend more powerful than I can be right now. A legend that can only rise from the ashes of the Batman.

Alfred Pennyworth Edit

  • [to Batman] The people of Gotham need you.
  • [about the Dolltrons] It brings to mind a spate of murders at the beginning of your career. It was Halloween then if I'm not mistaken, turned out to be rather a long one if I recall...

Scarecrow/Jonathan Crane Edit

  • There is no savior. No more hope. No more Batman.
  • Why aren't you scared?!
  • Welcome to Gotham, City of Fear.
  • Without fear, life is meaningless!
  • Gotham. This is your only warning. Abandon this city... or I will unleash your greatest fears.
  • You will bring death to all who follow you.
  • Remnants of Gotham, I have messages for you all. To the vandals who stayed behind to pick the still warm flesh from Gotham's bones, have your fun - you are under my protection. To the cowards quaking behind the police department's walls, you will not be spared. And to Batman, I have already won. Emptied your city with a vile of toxin and a few threatened words that's how little the safety you provided was worth When the dawn comes, when Gotham lies in ruin and I turn my gaze to the world beyond, the legend of the Batman will be worth nothing at all.
  • How many more bones will you crush? How many lives will you destroy in pursuit of what you call justice? You are the product of everything you fear. Violence... Darkness... Helplessness... All that remains is for you to watch as I drag your beloved Gotham into oblivion.
  • What do you seek in those tunnels, Batman? Hope? You will find none. I once searched for terror in chemistry. I thought perfectly arranged atoms could unlock the demons in a man's mind. You proved me wrong. How can the world know fear – true dread – when there is you? A stalwart knight, ever ready to slay monsters. Fear isn't pure biology, Batman. It’s more than instinct. True fear is the absence of hope. And hope is the spread wings of a bat, shining on the clouds. You promised that Gotham would be safe! Protected! But what does the world see now? My toxin choking its streets, blotting out the moonlight, poisoning the saplings you thought could stop me! And now, Dark Knight, I turn to you. But don't be afraid. It's not your life that needs ending, it's your myth. The hope that you stand for. The hope that dies tonight.
  • Enough bravado. It's too late for that. I don't care who you are, but they will. I'm going to rob them of hope. As they stare into your eyes, they will blame you. Failure will have a face and a name.
  • What does the great Gotham savior fear? We shall see...
  • Didn't you know, Dark Knight? You can't fight fear...
  • you don’t need to fear any more dark knight

Arkham Knight/Jason Todd Edit

  • You're old, you're predictable, and you never stood a chance.
  • You're not going anywhere, old man.
  • Hit back!
  • You always told me, Bruce: "Focus on what I want to achieve, and it'll happen". Well, you want to know what I want now, huh? I want you dead.
  • Look at me while you die, Batman. Look. At. Me.
  • I was going to ask if it came in black, but I thought, you'd just be jealous.
  • I did it... Cornered you. Did what nobody else could. All these years, ALL your enemies... but none of them understand you like I do. You think that Crane found Oracle on his own? I'm the one that told him about Barbara. Me! Told you I knew everything about you. But don't worry Bruce. I kept some secrets to myself.
  • Time to die old man
  • This end tonight
  • How long did it take you before replacing me a month a week? I TRUSTED YOU, AND YOU JUST LEFT ME TO DIE
  • Come on hero! Lets see if you can keep up with me!

Deathstroke/Slade Wilson Edit

  • What happened, Batman? You used to put up a fight.
  • It's been a long rivalry, Bat. But this is the only way it could end.
  • Shame about the car. I would have kept it when I was finished with you.

The Joker Edit

  • Miss me?
  • Bats? Bats?! BAAAATS?!?
  • He's no better than the creep who killed your parents.
  • [referring to Barbara's kidnapping] Now that I think about it, how did Scarecrow know to go after your IT department? I mean, I had no idea she worked for you when I shot her, I just got lucky. Seriously! I was aiming for her head.
  • I can see why you like it up here, Bats. Gives you time to ponder the really big questions. Like "Is Oracle dead?" "Is it all my fault?" "Who's going to die next?" [laughs] Now let's get down there and find out!
  • Those boys have really done their homework! Where do you think they're getting their intel? You think Barbara told them? Those sidekicks of yours! A teeny tiny bit of torture, and they're all "Please make it stop, I'll tell all Batman's secrets! Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo!"
  • All these years later, and I've still got a soft spot for little Barbara Gordon. Fortunately, mine's not right between the vertebrae!
  • Well, that's what I get for betting it all on black.
  • I am the Comeback King! The Clown Prince of Chaos! The Jester of Genocide!
  • This is how it happened. This is how the Joker died.
  • Guys! I just want to talk... About shooting you... With this gun... Which I'll do once we're done talking!
  • When I get out of here, I'll write my name in blood on every street corner! I'll carve it on every corpse! I'll... I'll...! NO ONE'S FORGETTING ME!
  • You know, you almost had me scared back there! Me! Haha! What have I got to be afraid of?!
  • [upon his final defeat, being locked away in Batman's mind forever] NO, BRUCE! DON'T LEAVE ME! PLEASE!... I need you...!

Jim Gordon Edit

  • This is how it happened. This is how the Batman died.
  • Civil unrest? There's a war in the streets, we don't have the manpower OR the equipment!

Ra's al Ghul Edit

  • [Last words, if you choose not to save him] Detective? Proud... of... you...

Mad Hatter/Jervis Tetch Edit

  • O frabjous day! Calloo, callay! The Batman's here. It's time to play.
  • Lets see, lets see, oh, one, two, three!
  • A hat-trick of your boys in blue. Do they live or die. That's up to you.
  • Such violent means, but all in vain. I've trained my mind to feel no pain.
  • Oh Batman. Allay your fears, prick up your ears, you'll soon hear there tears, Just listen for the siren's song, yes, you'll find your Alice before too long.
  • You've found the Cheshire Cat, all grinning! Don't be fooled, don't think you're winning.
  • The rabbit is gone. He's hopped away! I'm sure he only wants to play. Return the book, and then we'll find how little Alice lost her mind.
  • There's no joke. Control your rage. The answer is there. Just turn the page.
  • Down and down the rabbit hole you fall, were madness rains from wall to wall.
  • Through the rhyming words you tumble, where villains toil and psyches crumble.
  • Welcome to wonderland, it's time to play a game. I'm here to make you understand what drives a man insane.
  • And if you ever want to leave this crazy world you now inhabit, All you have to do is follow the white rabbit!
  • Come join me on my journey, a trip down memory lane, where you strapped me to a gurney and declared me quite insane.
  • Did you think i had forgotten? No i owe you quite a debt, and this adventure has just began, i'm far from done yet.
  • Look who's here! White rabbit there wallowing. Freedom waits for the one who's following.
  • You're late! You're late! the page is turning. Keep up Alice i know your learning.
  • What fun we had in Arkham city. Dear Alice never looked so pretty! Well, until you snapped and crushed my hat, did you think you'd get away with that? No.
  • Come on now Alice, don't be late. Follow the rabbit and seal your fate.
  • There's no way back for you Batman my puppet on a string. You're mine forever more, now it's the Hatter's toon you sing.
  • He's back again the white rabbit's head. Will you help him Alice or kill him dead?

  • Kill the rabbit! Kill him dead! He's after you! He wants your head!
  • Kill him Alice try, i dare. You can't catch him, he's everywhere!
  • Where are you Alice where'd you go? This isn't right, oh no no no!
  • What?! No! i had you, don't you see? Your mad, your mad, your just like me!
  • Oh Alice no this can't be how it ends. There's tea for two, we can still be friends.
  • [after Batman's unmasking] Looks like the secret is out, Mr. Wayne. Your tragic youth, your life of pain.
  • [after Batman's unmasking] Can you justify the blood you spilled to the boy who saw his parents killed?

Dialogue Edit

Arkham Knight: Turn around.
[Batman does, and sees the Arkham Knight aiming a gun at him]
Batman: Who are you?
Arkham Knight: You really have no idea...
[lifts his mask]
Jason Todd: you, Bruce?
Batman: Jason? But... you're dead.
The Joker: Let's not fall out here, Bats. I might have told you a teeny, tiny little lie. But come on, look at the boy! You did good. We did good! You should be proud.
Arkham Knight: What's the matter? Loss for words? I expected more, I'm hurt.
Batman: Joker sent me the film, I saw him kill you.
Arkham Knight: Don't you dare lie to me! How long did you wait before replacing me huh? A month? A week? I trusted you, and you just left me to die!
Batman: That's not what happened.
Arkham Knight: You always told me Bruce, focused on what I want to achieve, and it'll happen. Well, you want to know what now, huh? I want you dead.
Batman: [Headbutts Jason]
Arkham Knight: [Jason grabs his two guns and shoots] You can't hide from me! I will hunt you down!

Batman: Where's Scarecrow?
Militia Soldier: [Tries to inject him with Scarcrow's fear toxin] Go to hell!
Batman: [Throws him to the ground and pins him down] Where is he?
Militia Soldier: I've got nothing to say to you, Batman.
Batman: Talk, or I will crush every bone in your body.
Militia Soldier: Okay, okay, he's working out of a penthouse in Chinatown. I swear, that's all I know!
Batman: If you're lying, I'll break the other one.
Militia Soldier: The other...?
Batman: [Breaks his arm]

Officer Kevern: What are you doing?
Batman: Evening the odds. [Calls in Batmobile]

[the last will and testament of Thomas Wayne]

Thomas Wayne (trailer): In the event of my death, I hereby declare that all my worldly possessions pass to my son, Bruce Wayne. Bruce: I ask that you honour the Wayne family legacy, and commit yourself to the improvement of Gotham City, its institutions and its citizens. Please, be strong. You are young, but destined for great things. Make the most of your opportunities; use them to give back to a city that has given us so much, to change the lives of millions of people. Do not be frivolous with this wealth; please do not waste it all on fast cars and outrageous clothes, and the pursuit of a destructive lifestyle. Invest in Gotham. Treat its people like family; watch over them, and use this money to safeguard them from forces beyond their control. My deepest regret is I will not see you grow into the good man I know you will become. And finally, my son, I ask that you never abandon this city to fate. We have lived through dark days; there's no doubt there are more to come. But it is the good and great men who stand up for Gotham when others turn and run. In death, I will love you forever. Your father, Thomas.

[When Batman attempts to reduce the Scarecrow fear toxin blast at Ace Chemicals after Oracle is kidnapped]

Alfred Pennyworth: What are you doing?! It's too late. You can't stop it!
Batman: I know. I'm not trying to stop it. But I can reduce the blast radius.
Alfred Pennyworth: And what will happen to you?
Batman: That doesn't matter. Find her, Alfred.
Alfred Pennyworth: Sir, I urge you to reconsider, evacuate now! If you're caught in that blast, you will die!
Batman: There's no other way, Alfred.
Alfred Pennyworth: There's always a way, sir. Please...
Batman: Where is she, Alfred?
Alfred Pennyworth: I have no idea.
Batman: It's my fault they took her.
Alfred Pennyworth: She was aware of the risks, Master Bruce. She'll be as angry as you are that she's allowed this to happen.
Alfred Pennyworth: Sir, listen to me. Don't you see? This is what he wants. Without you, Gotham will be at his mercy. You cannot let him win!
Alfred Pennyworth: I'm monitoring that facility. You're out of time. I'm begging you. Leave now.
Batman: It's what you taught me. Do the right thing. That's all that matters.
Alfred Pennyworth: Master Bruce, I implore you! You must get out of there. If this is about Miss Gordon, you cannot blame yourself for what's happened. Save yourself before it's too late!
Batman: Goodbye, Alfred.

Jim Gordon: You know, you see a lot in this job. A lot of heartbreak, a lot of suffering. But I'll never forget taking a witness statement from an eight-year-old boy who'd just seen his parents gunned down.
Batman: You were kind, Jim.
Jim Gordon: I... I was thinking, I may never get the chance to tell you this, to say sorry.
Batman: You don't have to.
Jim Gordon: We're the same, Bruce. We'd do anything for our family.

Arkham Knight: Always defending the weak and the helpless. That's what I like about you. Predictable. That's why we are going to win. We know your move before you do. We know how you think!
Batman: Do you know what I'm thinking right now?
Arkham Knight: Of course. You're thinking, "Who the hell is this guy?"
Batman: No, I'm just trying to decide which one of you I'm going to take out first.

Scarecrow: [referring to unmasking Batman] It's time. Mister Gordon, I would like you to do the honors.
Jim Gordon: Never! I'm done taking orders from you.
Scarecrow: [Shoots Robin]
Jim Gordon: You bastard!
Scarecrow: Take off that mask, or my next shot will kill him.
Batman: It's okay.
Jim Gordon: It's not okay! You know what this means.
Batman: It's the end.
Jim Gordon: When they find out who you are, there'll be no hiding.
Batman: You need to trust me, Jim.
Scarecrow: NOW!
Jim Gordon: [removes Batman's cowl]
Scarecrow: Wayne? Bruce Wayne? Now the world can see you for what you truly are. A legend laid bare. Powerless. Human. Afraid. [shoves fear toxin needles into Batman]

Alfred Pennyworth: [referring to Knightfall Protocol] Are you sure you want to do this, Master Bruce?
Bruce Wayne: I've got to. It's the only way to protect them.
Alfred Pennyworth: Very well.
