Just like with any other game you will have to unlock all the trophies to unlock the platinum trophy.
Take down Zsasz in the Patient Pacification Chamber
This is basically a story-related trophy. Shortly after starting your game you will come to a section where you have police asking you to go in and take down an irate crazy inmate. You will have to go upstairs and use detective mode. Swing line to one of the gargoyles and keep jumping from one gargoyle to the other until you reach the one that is set up directly behind Zsasz. If you look down at Zsasz you will notice a bat symbol above Zsasz'z head. When you see that symbol hit the
button to do a glide kick. Once you have done the glide kick hold R2 and press
to do a ground takedown. Once you finish up the ground takedown Zasz will be finished and you will get the trophy.
Leave No Man Behind
Rescue the guards and henchman from the Joker toxin in Decontamination
This trophy can be missed. You will come to a spot where you help a guard up to the top of the rafters to get away from Joker's toxic gases. Once you pull him up you will have to pull up another police officer and dispose of the hanging henchman. Look up from the platform you land on after jumping across the gap right after the first police officer. Zip Line up to the guard hanging there and pull him up. From that platform look over to the next possible platform and jump and glide over to the rafter and than dispose of the hanging henchman and the trophy will unlock.
Malpractice Needs More Practice
Survive the onslaught from the deformed Joker henchman
This trophy is story-related. You will come to a cut-scene where Joker is on a giant box. Inside the box is the first giant henchman. Joker will release the henchman and he will start charging at you. Once he starts to charge simply throw a batarang at him and let him crash into the wall and run away. Once he charges at you a few times and crashes into the wall another cut-scene will pop up and the trophy will unlock.
Escape from Intensive Treatment to the island surface
This is another story-related trophy. Once you defeat the titan henchman you will have to escape to the Arkham Island onto a ledge. Once you reach the ledge of the island the trophy will pop up.
Just What The Doctors Ordered
Save all the doctors in medical
You will come to a cut scene where there is a doctor laying on a table strapped in. After the cut-scene a bunch of thugs will appear from on top of the upper platform. Take down all the thugs and keep watching for the thugs grabbing weapons off the wall. If there is a blue set of rigged lines above an enemies head that means they have a weapon and plan on throwing it at you. Hit them before the jagged lines turn red because that means they are seconds from throwing the item at you. Take out both waves of henchmen and the trophy will unlock soon there after.
Survive the nightmare of the Scarecrow's fear gas
This is a story-related trophy. This is the first time you will encounter the Scarecrow. All you have to do in the Scarecrow's mini-game is stay out of his sight range. There will be a light illuminating on the ground where Scarecrow is looking. Just stay out of the lights and and you will eventually come to a giant spotlight which is actually the bat call. Shine the spotlight on Scarecrow and the nightmare will end and the trophy will unlock.
This trophy is also story-related. What you are going to want to do is wait for Bane to start to charge you and simply throw a batarang at him and dodge out of the way. He will hit the wall and take damage. If you feel compelled you can run up to him and get a couple of hits in but make sure you dodge fast and don't let him hurt you. After you get the bar 1/3 of the way down run up to him and hit him to initiate jumping on his back. Once you are on his back you will have to rip one of the hoses out of his neck. After the first hose has been removed a wave of henchmen will come down and attack you while you still have to deal with Bane. Keep pummeling the goons and dodging Bane while he throws things at you and charges. Make sure you keep throwing batarangs at Bane and keep letting him crash into walls. After his health is 2/3 of the way down you can hit him to activate jumping on his back. Remove a second hose and there will be another wave of henchmen to come after you. Do the same for this wave and Bane as you did for the second wave and when his health is depleted run up to him and hit him to activate jumping on his back and remove the final hoses. Once all the hoses have been removed the trophy will unlock.
*NOTE-If Bane starts to re-charge health throw a batarang at him to stop him. You can tell that Bane is charging life by his health bar will pulsate and you will hear the sounds of vents letting out air.
Breaking And Entering
Gain access to Administration after it is locked down by the Joker
You will come to a point where you have to take out 4 snipers and then find an alternate access point into the building. Go up and through the opening and you will find yourself inside the building. Once you get into the building the trophy will unlock.
Face your biggest fears and keep your sanity
You will have to fight Scarecrow again for a second time. This fight will be basically the same as the first one, only you will need to fight some skeleton goons. Use the same tips provided for the first time you fight him and make sure you take out the skeletons out of the Scarecrows sight. Let the skeletons come to you also. Once you have shone the spotlight on Scarecrow the nightmare will end and you will be awarded with the trophy.
Zsasz Cut Down To Size
Save Dr. Young from being killed by Victor Zsasz
You will come to a point while trying to track down Dr. Young by her fingerprints. Follow them until you get to room where a cut-scene shows Zsasz holding the doctor in a choke hold in front of him. You will have to either be quick in throwing a batarang at him and not the doctor or you can do the easier method and stand around the corner and throw the remote control batarang at him and steer it to hit him in the back of the head. After you hit Zsasz with the batarang you will be rewarded with this trophy.
Capture and lock up Harley Quinn
I found this part of the game to get frustrating. A bunch of goons will keep invading the floor and you will have to take them all out while you have to keep an eye on the floor because the floor will keep electrocuting you to "death". The best thing to do is to stay near the rail of the L/S platform and the middle platform so you can knock out a bunch of the goons while waiting for the floor to make its rounds. When you see the upper L/S platform glowing that means the next platform to get electrocuted is the center platform so be ready to jump the fence. When the center platform starts to blink immediately get over the fence and deal with whatever goons may be there. Once the center platform is done being electrified and it returns to its normal color jump the fence back over to the center platform and take care of the goons there. Keep doing this until all three waves of goons are taken care of and than a cut scene will pop up of you taking care of Harley Quinn. During this cut-scene, or shortly after (depends on the trophy ping), you will get this trophy.
Defeat two Titan Henchmen at once
You are going to come to a point where you reach the Joker in what looks like a dead end; it will be the secret lab. I highly recommend going for the Mano-a-mano trophy here since it is the easiest place to get it. So either use the tips for this fight provided in that trophies explanation or what you can do is deal with them normally. To deal with them normally what you are going to want to do is wait for them to charge at you and throw a batarang at them and let them crash into either each other or the wall. Beat them down until they get to their 1/3 and 2/3 heath bar points and make sure to jump on them and ride them around to hit the other Titan. Keep repeating this process until both are knocked out.
Resist The Fear
Conquer the effects of the Scarecrow's fear gas
This will be your last fight against the Scarecrow. This one will be a bit different. You will have to hit the Scarecrow with three different spotlights. You will have to fight a bunch of skeleton goons and use the first spotlight. Than a second wave of skeleton goons will pop out and you must defeat them. Once they are defeated you can use the second spotlight on the Scarecrow. The last natch of goons isn't as bad as it looks. There will be a bunch of skeleton goons and a titan skeleton goon. Just keep your distance from the titan goon and wait for him to charge you and when he does simply throw a batarang at him. If you hit him with the batarang he will hit the wall and shatter instantly. Finish off the rest of the goons and use the third spotlight. After you do this you will watch a cut-scene and during that time the trophy will pop up.
Venture into Killer Croc's lair and come out alive
This "boss battle" is the most time consuming in my eyes. You will have to walk around on planks of wood and be really quiet (I chose to just crouch while walking around). When Killer Croc pops out of the water you will need to throw a batarang at him before he gets too close to you. Follow the distance maker and make sure it stays in the white the whole time and if it starts to go red choose a different direction. Collect all the stuff you need to collect and get out of there. You will know you are almost done because it will come to a part where you are gonna need to just run away from the exploding floor planks with Killer Croc chasing you and breaking the floor. Make it all the way back to where you set the exploding gel and wait for Croc. Once he is right over the gel, make it explode and that will trigger a cut-scene and the trophy will pop up.
Defeat the giant Titan Ivy plant
This will be the last story trophy you will get besides the trophies for just beating the game. You will get this trophy after defeating Poison Ivy. To beat Posion Ivy what are you going to want to do is throw batarangs at her and make sure you keep your eyes on the ground. When you see dust starting to be thrown up on the ground dodge to where there is no dust and dirt being thrown up because that means that Poison Ivy is going to be attacking with roots through the ground. Keep throwing batarangs at Poison Ivy and she will start shooting little balls of energy at you through the giant tentacles; these are easily dodged with good timing. Keep throwing batarangs at her and dodging her attacks until you get rid of her white bar of health. Once that bar is depleted she will fall giving you a chance to run up to her little pod and spray it with the explosive gel. Do this and get ready for round 2. You will basically have to do the same thing over again in round 2 but the only difference is that she will send goons in. Take care of the goons as necessary and keep throwing the batarangs at Poison Ivy and she will fall again after her grey health bar has depleted. Spray her again with explosive gel and a cut-scene will pop up. During this cut-scene you should receive your trophy.

You will get this trophy after you beat the game on Hard. To get the trophy you must beat the game from beginning to end on Hard mode. If you beat the game on Hard mode in your first playthrough you will also unlock the trophies for the easier difficulties. The trophies will unlock after your fight with The Joker.
KO all the henchmen celebrating your arrival at the party *NOTE
-This trophy is missable.
Right before your fight with The Joker you will head to the building where you encountered him (the building will have the Joker's face as the entrance to the building) in what looks like a nut-house with a bunch of Joker dolls in small rooms. But outside the room there will be four goons with birthday caps on holding signs and welcoming you (This is the part where you see the fireworks trying to point Batman which way to go
). They will not attack you at all unless you attack the four of them first. Beat them and go inside the building they are standing outside of and there will be a line of 8 people on either side of the hallway and they will also have birthday caps on welcoming you. Simply go up to any of them and punch them to start a fight. Defeat all of the 16 people inside and if you beat the four people outside you will get this trophy. Click the spoiler for a video make sure you do not miss this trophies location.
Freeflow Combo 20
Complete a combo of 20 moves (any play mode)
See Freeflow Combo 40.
Freeflow Combo 40
Complete a combo of 40 moves (any play mode)
For this trophy you will need to keep a combo going for 40 hits which can be very tricky. The easiest way I found to get this one is after beating the game and getting all of the challenges done. Go into the Rumble in the Jungle extreme challenge and beat the first level. Once you get to the second level try to focus on an easy combo stream. The easiest way to do this is simply keep an eye on who is about to attack you and prepare to counter it. Just keep punching people and make sure you take out the one guy with the knives with a vertical takedown. Once people start getting knocked out you will find yourself struggling to keep the combo going. Just make sure you keep an eye on the people in the background and make sure you are pointing towards that guy with the L/S and don't be afraid to jump with
to get closer to an enemy but make sure you only jump one with doing a proper evade or else it will kill the combo. Also if you see that there are no people standing anywhere near you than do not be afraid to throw in a ground pound to keep the combo alive.
Glide continuously for over 100m
The best place to get this trophy is in Arkham Island East. Climb up to the top of the tower on top of the intensive treatment building and jump off the edge and glide down towards the entrance of either the West or North doors. See spoiler for video.
String up one henchman and drop him to surprise a second (any play mode).
This one you will want to do in story at some point. To get this one you will want to do an inverted takedown to string up a guy. After that swing from the gargoyles to get away from the one he is hanging from. His collar should go off and attract some of the other guards to see what the commotion is. While they are looking up at him simply throw a batarang at the rope and he will crash to the ground and it will scare another goon. Do this and the trophy is yours.
Defeat Titan henchman without using Batarangs (any play mode)
This one can be a pain in the butt, however I found an easy method to obtain this trophy. What you are going to want to do is try to get this trophy during the battle against the two titans in the secret lab where you encounter Joker. One of the titans is going to be completely white while the other titan looks like he has more of a tan. Choose which one of the two you want to throw batarangs at and make sure you only throw them at that specific one (color of them being the distinguishable difference). When either one attacks just dodge and throw batarangs only at the one that you decided will be your batarang target. Worry about taking him down first and every time you ride him make sure to get the 3 possible hits on the other titan. Once the first titan is taken care of the other one should be pretty close so you are going to want to switch your weapon from the batarang to the exploding gel and place it on the floor in front of you and than back up a little bit and await the titan to rush at you. When he does rush at you set off the exploding gel when he is in range and he will start to swing, that is your chance to get your hits on him. Keep using the exploding gel instead of the batarang and the trophy will be yours once you have finished taking the titan out.
Catch a Batarang (any play mode)
This trophy can only be obtained by having the upgrade "Remote Control Batarang". Once you have gotten the upgrade go to a high place where there is a lot of open room. Throw the batarang and steer it back to Batman. Once it gets near him he will automatically catch it and the trophy will be all yours.
Freeflow Combo 5
Complete a combo of 5 moves (any play mode)
See Freeflow Combo 40.
Freeflow Combo 10
Complete a combo of 10 moves (any play mode)
See Freeflow Combo 40.
Perform a perfect combo including all of Batman's combat moves (any play mode)
You can get this trophy anywhere in the game but I recommend getting this in the combo challenges area. The best one I found to get this one was Rumble in the Jungle in round 1. You will need to incorporate every single one of Batman's moves into a single combo.
5. Claw Shot: Double Tap
6. Take Down:
7. Ground Take Down
9. Jump Dodge:
I recommend starting this one out with a couple of strikes and get the first counter in that you can. Wait until you get enough hits to do a special takedown and the first one you are going to want to do is the takedown. Takedown any of the guys and right after make sure you are pointing towards anyone and throw a batarang. Do a few more strikes and throw in a stun and a jump dodge. Once you have enough to do another special takedown do your throw and make sure to throw throw the goon away from everyone else and keep looking in his direction and do a ground takedown instantly. Once you stand up make sure you are looking towards more people and do your claw shot. After you do this in one combo you will get the trophy.
Ride Titan henchman and knock down 10 thugs (any play mode)
The best place to get this trophy is when you encounter the giant henchmen in the room with the elevator shafts. A titan henchman will break through one of the elevator doors. Simply bring his health down to 2/3 and ignore the goons as much as possible. Hop on his back and simply steer the titan henchman towards all the goons and get a 10 combo.
Achieve 8 medals on combat challenges
See Freeflow Gold.
Achieve 16 medals on combat challenges
See Freeflow Gold.
Achieve 24 medals on combat challenges
This is where most people who give up on the platinum will have given up. The challenges can be pretty difficult but are nowhere near impossible. You should be able to get the necessary points to achieve the 3 medals needed for each challenge on the normal challenges, however you will start needing every single bonus you can on the "extreme" challenges. I made a list of bonus' that you can get each round and put them in the spoiler:
Since Shock & Awe Extreme seems to be the one that I found most difficult and because so many people are stuck on that one, let me give you a good piece of advice that I found would make this challenge a LOT easier to get the required medals. Try for the big combos in rounds 1 and 2 and in 3 and 4 just worry about taking everyone down as quick as possible, you should have at least 2 batarangs by the start of round 3

This one is the easier of the two challenge "Gold" trophies. You will have to do all three of the requirements on every possible mission in one go each. Make sure you have enough enemies by simply doing all the missions that require multiple targets first. Due to the fact that there are 8 missions with 3 medals each I cannot link that many Youtube videos to this guide so please refer to Youtube or PM me for any help with these challenges.
Complete one predator challenge by using only Silent Takedowns
This one you do in any predator mission, but I found it easiest in the first available predator challenge. You are gonna want to go James Bond on everyone and be sneaky the entire challenge. Take your time because you aren't going for any records or batarangs when you do this. Simply go around and sneak up behind every guard and do a silent takedown on them (button command will pop up once you are in range for the takedown). Make sure you do a silent takedown on all of the guards and make sure none of the takedowns are corner takedowns and you will get this trophy at the end of the challenge. If you get caught at all while going for this trophy simply use the gargoyles to escape their line of sight until they disperse and then you can go back to getting your silent takedowns.
Flawless Freeflow Fighter
Complete one combat challenge without taking damage
This one is easiest done on the Intensive treatment. Select the challenge and focus on not getting hit and countering A LOT. If you get hit once during any of the 4 stages than you will not receive this trophy. Do not worry about the score or a high combo or anything. Just keep Batman from getting hit in any of the rounds and the trophy will pop up after you get the Bonus at the end equaling 5000 points.

World's Greatest Detective
Spirit of Amadeus Arkham revealed
You will get this trophy once you have collected every single Spirit scanned. They are the boxes with the spiders on them. Once you have all of them scanned there will be one more that you must scan for the trophy that isn't considered a Riddler challenge. The location for that one is in the Security Control Room inside of the Penitentiary where Mr. Gordan was tied up earlier in the game. It is on the floor where the chair once sat.
Look in the spoiler if you you are still having trouble finding this one.
In order to get this trophy you will have to beat the game and collect every Riddler challenge within the story and you will also have to receive 24 medals on both the predator challenges and the combat challenges. This will be the last trophy you will get before the platinum unless you are missing any of the odd-ball or missable trophies.
