|WayneTech: When Bruce first engages an enemy, he activates two WayneTech boosts of his choosing.|
Arkham Knight Batman is an immensely flexible and cunning combatant in Injustice Mobile. With his very high and balanced base stats, as well as having a powerful and versatile passive, this version of Batman fits with his own staple image in the Arkham trilogy. He can only be obtained in the Arkham Pack and is considered to be the rarest drop from the pack at a drop rate of ~9%, or a ~24.5% chance to get at least one copy of him from a pack. However, obtaining him from a pack will not unlock him for direct promotions.
|Basic combo||Damage pattern (% of damage stat)||Total (including Combo Ender)|
|Light (Combo Ender)||2% - 2% - 2% - (3%)||9%|
|Heavy||4% - 4% - 4%||12%|
Upon first entering the match, Batman can pick 2 buffs (out of 6 total) to use against his opponent. This cannot be delayed or chosen at another time. If no action is taken, two random buffs will be received. Clockwise from top left:
- Crit Immunity (Batsuit icon): Batman will be immune to CRIT damage.
- Drain Immunity (Lightning target): Immunity to power drain effects, including those from Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar.
- SP1 Damage Buff (Batarang): Increases the base damage of his SP1 by 66.7% (diminishes to 33.3% at max damage).
- Crit Damage Buff (W target): Batman does 25% more damage on Crit attacks.
- Power Added (Batman and Lightning): Gives Batman 2 bars of power instantly. Because he technically doesn't start the match with two bars, instead generating them immediately after the match starts, it bypasses the 2-bar cap, giving him access to a Super at the start of the match if equipped with Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar or while teamed with Batgirl/Prime. Militarized Batmobile will further boost his power and can allow him to finish off the opponent quicker.
- DOT Immunity (Cross): Batman is immune to Damage over Time. He is virtually immune to characters that are known to deal Damage-Over-time on their specials (both 1 and 2, in this case). This is a strong defense against characters that deals heavy damage over time, such as Scorpion/Mortal Kombat X and The Joker/Arkham Origins. It will not, however, work against Radiation.
All buffs have a visual effect when activated:
- Crit Immunity: Utility belt glows blue, blue hexagons swirl around the torso.
- Drain Immunity: Red glowing ring above belt, followed by gold ring flaring around the feet.
- SP1 Damage Buff: Utility belt glows blue, eyes glow white.
- Crit Damage Buff: A small flash at the cowl, red glowing ring above belt, eyes glow white.
- Power Added: Gold ring flares around the feet followed by blue hexagons swirling around the torso.
- DoT Immunity: Red hexagons around the torso, followed by the same gold ring effect as above.
The buffs do not show a pop-up text if Batman is on the opponent's team, but they do show the visual effects. When multiple buffs are selected, only part of the effect may appear. For example, choosing both crit and drain immunity may lead to the blue glow of the utility belt and the gold ring effect not to be displayed.
If the opponent starts the match with power bars (e.g. from Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar, Batgirl/Prime or Batman/Arkham Origins passive), it is possible for them to initiate a special while you are selecting a buff - the text of the special will pop up, but they don't actually start doing the special; even after you finish buff selection, there will be a few seconds when they are invulnerable and you cannot use a special before they finally start using their special. If going for the power added buff it is in your best interest to tag-in before he gets one bar of power while tagged out to avoid losing power.
Arkham Knight Batman's passive allows him to negate the different strengths of a great variety of characters. Crit immunity greatly reduces the threat of Deathstroke/Arkham Origins, Darkseid/Apokolips, or any card with lots of crit stats, a common sight in Online Battles. Power drain immunity allows him to resist the power drains from Sinestro/Antimatter or Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar. Damage over time immunity is invaluable against the likes of Scorpion/Mortal Kombat X and Catwoman/Arkham Knight.
Arkham Knight Batman's Explosive Batarangs are much faster than others (thus harder to block) and also hit 7 times instead of 1 or 2 times, which works better with his own gear's disable on SP1, making him a deadly opponent to play against on Online Battle. Additionally, it can be used immediately after a heavy basic combo to prevent his opponent from blocking.
While his SP2 does multiple hits (4 if the first hit was unblocked, 2 otherwise), almost all of the damage is in the last hit, which can be useful when facing Raven/Prime.
The LexCorp Set as well as the Fourth World Set are commonly equipped onto Arkham Knight Batman, as they both take advantage of Arkham Knight Batman's powerful special 2 and special 1. His special 1 also allows Arkham Knight Batman to use a similar gear strategy to that of Bane/Luchador. This involves the use of the League of Assassins Adept Knives, the Cloak of Destiny, and the LexCorp Gauntlets V2. If timed correctly it can Knockout the opponent's active card and bring the rest of their team to 1 health, meaning any hit (unless reflected) should Knockout any card brought into play (this is not accounting for healing or resurrection).
Please note that battles are highly situational: this section only mentions cards that have mechanics that, for any reason, are particularly effective with/against, or particularly ineffective against Batman. Having a card that "counters" Batman does not mean it is always a good choice.
- Batgirl/Prime, Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar: Along with Batman's Power Added ability, he can start with a Super Move at the beginning of the match.
- Bane/Arkham Origins: Similar to above, albeit more situational, and not at the very beginning of the match.
- Catwoman/Arkham Knight: For his ability to increase her strong bleed.
- Power Drain characters, such as Nightwing and Lex Luthor, especially:
- Sinestro/Antimatter: Batman's power drain immunity can render Sinestro without a passive.
- Bane/Prime, Hawkgirl/Regime, The Flash/Metahuman, Deathstroke/Arkham Origins: All have their value dropped exponentially by Batman's Crit immunity.
- Catwoman, Aquaman, Scorpion, The Joker/Arkham Origins etc: For Batman's DOT immunity. Especially:
- Black Adam/Kahndaq, Catwoman/Ame-Comi: His power drain and DOT immunity can make both of their passives useless.
- Darkseid/Apokolips: Batman can render himself immune to two of Darkseid's possible combo-ender effects (Crit and Bleed).
- Raven/Rebirth: His Crit Immunity can negate part of her passive, but she can still drain his power even if he has the power drain immunity buff.
- Batman/Flashpoint: His Crit-Immunity would severely hinder Flashpoint Batman's passive, completely disabling Destructive Blows.
- Mother Box: Its power drain at the start of the match offers possibly the only chance to power drain Batman throughout the entire match, although only if he is combined with Batgirl/Prime or Ra's Al Ghul's Scimitar.
- Green Lantern/Red Son: Green Lantern's crit immunity neutralizes the effects of Batman's crit buff and his stun immunity and damage mitigation can neutralize the SP1 damage boost, as well as reducing the threat from Batman's powerful SP2.

These stats are the final damage and health levels at level 50, per Elite rank, with ALL support cards, and without any augmentations. With the 2.13 update, Elite 8, 9, and 10 have been added. The Elite 10 damage and health levels are for level 60 characters.
- Arkham Assault has two different animations. When the opponent doesn't block, it appears to be visually based on Batman's Aerial Attack in the Batman: Arkham series, in which Batman runs on top of his opponent and smashes down, while the opponent does block (or if the first hit misses), it is a ground back kick. If it triggers Superman/Injustice 2's passive, the kick animation will play.
- His Super Move features his Batmobile from Batman: Arkham Knight.
- Arkham Knight Batman's Explosive Batarang does 7 hits, the most of any special 1, tied with Batman/Dawn of Justice's Explosive Batarang and Static's Taser Trap.
- Additionally, both of the latest versions of Batman don't have the bats flying upwards from the bottom of the screen when checking out their character model.
- His passive would still work in Dead Zone.
- Arkham Assault is the first ability to refer to a character solely with their last name.
- If Arkham Knight Batman is on the brink of generating one power bar while tagged out, using the Power Added boost will show up as Batman only having 2 bars of power, but when these bars are used, the remaining bar appears.
- There is also a glitch where if 2 sides (both the player and the defense AI) has Batman Arkham Knight as their starting character, if both use their Power Added perks at the same time, after activation, the word describing the power will shown up, but possibly due to a glitch that cause the game unable to move for a few seconds, but the difference can be seen in the time "lag" is that, if the AI uses his SP1, Explosive Batarang, then the time would only be 2 seconds; on the other hand, if he uses his SP2, Arkham Assault, then it would actually take 5 seconds for him to use it instead. During this time, the player-controlled can even hit and block his specials, but it wouldn't deal any damages to the AI at all.
- Also, if he uses his SP2 while the opponent is at a faraway range, then he would uses his animations for when the opponent block instead, but during the last hit (the backward kick), it would actually deal the same damage from the last hit just like his regular SP2's final hit (the aerial knockdown jump).
- Additionally, if both him and the opponent use their specials at the same time, and if Batman uses his SP2, then he'd actually uses the "Block" animations instead.
- He's the only Batman character to use batarangs in his heavy attacks.
- All of the symbols for his boosts are also the symbols for the Waynetech upgrades for Batman in Batman: Arkham Knight (the console game in which his appearance is based on).
- Both him and Green Lantern/Red Lantern Hal Jordan are the only characters whom can possibly start the match with a Super Move.
