As we all know, Batman is no murderer. His stringent moral code dissuades him from doing so, because, well...he'd be no different from the hundreds of killers he takes on day in and day out.
But that doesn't stop him from beating the living crap out of thugs, and leaving them to their own starry eyed and bruised devices. "Got a broken neck? I DON'T CARE! I'm the Bat! Pull yourself to the nearest hospital, I'ma fly outta here."
There have been a few niggling moments from the Rocksteady Arkham trilogy that seem to snap the back of Batman's one rule - as deciphered by the guys over at OutsideXbox - where he blatantly, and negligently, straight up kills a no-gooder! Well, I'm fairly sure of it, check it out for yourself!
This is a great watch, but if you don't have the precious minutes at your disposal...
Didn't see that one coming, huh?
Kill Number One
The one where Batman forcibly inserts a thug's face into an electrical junction box...
Yeah it looks pretty badass and I'm sure that guy deserved it, but your one code...ONE CODE, Batman. Come on!
Kill Number Two
The one where a thug gets smacked in the head with a "non-lethal slam round..."
Taking an uppercut from the world's greatest detective I can imagine isn't the most fun to be had on a night out. NEITHER IS EVIL DOING! But still, bad Bats! There aren't even enough bad guys to warrant the use of your tank!
Kill Number Three
The one where Batman drags a cop to his concrete grave...
I guess this option is purely your choice! You could just grapple up there and knock them out. But if you're feeling rather villainous, why not pull a cop off a rooftop?
Kill Number Four
The one where Batman simply blows a thug up!
What else do you expect, throwing a propane canister at the Bat.
For him to attack you with it? Wait, what?!
Kill Number Five
The one where Batman chokes a thug with a car door...
Because what do you expect! Taking your car door out for a walk at this time of night? Why Bats? Why must you attempt to decapitate a person with a car door?!
He takes no prisoners, he pulls the punches, he is the Bat. And even the Bat can make a few mistakes in the heat of the moment. At least it's thugs and not pigeons being run over by the Batmobile, or cats, or a cop landing on a granny or...
