It is heavily implied at one point in the game that Harley Quinn is or was pregnant. This is suggested by examining Harley's costume on a dummy and panning down to the floor. At the dummy's feet is a box reading "Fruitful Endeavors pregnancy test". Lying beside it is a positive test.
The code word "Sarah" given to the undercover officers by Commissioner Gordon is in reference to his wife Sarah Essen-Gordon who was shot to death by the Joker in Detective Comics #741.
Harley Quinn: Hush, little baby, don't say a word / Momma's gonna kill for you the whole damn world.
The Joker: Twinkle, twinkle, little bat. Watch me kill your favorite cat.
An Easter egg/reference relating to The Scarecrow can be found on a barge in the docks area. When on the barge, use the sequencer gadget to solve the code "City of Terror". A panel opens. Once inside, you are in a room filled with neon bug zappers. At the end of the hall, there is an unconscious inmate sitting in a chair. Upon zooming in on him, he is startled awake and gives a loud shriek. He goes back to sleep. It is assumed that he is a victim of The Scarecrow's experiments.
There are several references to Lost (2004), the ABC television show. One when flying around Arkham City, an inmate asks another, "So, did they ever explain what the island was?" And later, more dialogue: "...why did it end in a church?" Writer Paul Dini was part of the "Lost" writing staff for the first two seasons before leaving the series.
