As you may know, Batman: Arkham Asylum is the first game in the Arkham franchise. It contains various boss fights that test Batman’s combat skills in many ways. From this article, we are going to talk about some methods to defeat these nasty villains in Arkham Asylum. After Joker takes control of the Asylum, Gotham’s greatest vigilante Batman has to fight against various notorious criminals. Let’s find out about the Boss fights in Arkham Asylum and how to beat them.
Joker’s Titan Henchmen
The first one you need to defeat is the Titan Henchman (transformed). You will encounter a one just before you exit the asylum inside intensive treatment. As well you may encounter them in several other locations during gameplay.
The first thing you need to do is to identify the patterns of this thug. If the henchman comes charging at you, you must dive multiple steps. Just a one-hit from that charge, your health bar will not look good. The thug will growl before the charge, quickly fire a Batarang, and dive to side as I said earlier. If the Batarang hits the thug, he will become disoriented and give you the opening to beat it. When you have two of these thugs to fight you can even climb to his head and damage other enemies.
Bane is a much stronger version of a regular titan thug. Unlike joker’s titan henchmen, Bane uses venom to build his muscles which can be deadly. Your main focus should be to remove the venom tubes from his head.
Just like titan henchmen, you need to fire a Batarang when he is charging. Similarly you’ll need to climb and rip those venom tubes from his head weaken him. Other than that, you just need to dodge the incoming wall chunks and fire Batrangs to Bane and watch out for the perfect moment to attack.
Now this is the easiest one. But you’ll need to be careful. You need to sneak and can’t let him see you. Otherwise, he will execute Dr.Young, and game will be over! You simply need to take cover in the corner of the room entrance, so Zsasz won’t see you. Then aim a Batarang and finish him off.
This is a rather easier one too. Although you will not fight Harley Quinn in direct combat, You have to be careful about the electrified floor. You just need to fight normal but pay attention to the floor as I said earlier. When you see the floor zapping, run to the left platform, and climb. When left floor zapping, run back to the central platform. Repeat these steps until you finish beating all thugs.
Killer Croc or Waylon Jones, can be considered as a dangerous opponent to Batman. This battle is also a bit challenging, all you need to stay calm and do not panic. First, you need to crouch (sneak) in the platforms on the top of the water. After some distance Croc will continuously follow you. In all these situations, you need to do is a fire a well-aimed Batarang to Croc’s head. And finally, ready to equip line launcher and explosive gels. You’ll be fine.
Again, you will not fight Poison Ivy directly. You’ll need to defeat her converted thugs and the Big Boss plant. Like previous fights, you’ll need to dive away from the tentacle attacks. If you got caught in those tentacles, you’ll need to mash some buttons to quickly break free. Else, you’ll lose many of your health bars. Once again, you’ll need your quick Batarang to create an opening. Quickly fire Btarangs at Poison Ivy when her cell’s shields are down. After that dive away from the poison orbs. When she’s down, equip explosive gels and blow up the cage. You’ll be doing this step twice and you’ll be able to defeat Poison ivy.
Scarecrow (The Third)
Scarecrow battles are tricky. You have to sneak and stay in the cover for avoiding Scarecrow’s gaze. These battles (Not battles really) are all about timing your movements. You have to find your way to Bat-light to finish the battle in the early battles. But in the final, you’ll need to find some skeleton goons of Scarecrow. You’ll need to defeat them to finish the Scarecrow’s final battle. Beware of the Titan skeletons.
The Joker (The Final Battle)
The Final of the Arkham Asylum boss fights is The Joker obviously. Titan injected Joker is really not much challenging. Rather an easy battle I should say. Like previous encounters, you’ll need to fight off the goons and the boss himself. Watch out for explosive joker teeth. Beat the joker when he is stuck, and soon he will go back to the top platform. You’ll need your ultra Batclaw to pull him back to the fighting platform. After three waves of these steps, you’ll finish the game.
So that’s all the boss fights you’ll find in the game, Arkham Asylum. I hope this will help you to beat all Arkham Asylum Boss fights.
