Costumes: Cassandra Cain's regular costume (tweaked to fit the style), Batman: The Animated Series (Barbara  Gordon version)

Intro Quotes and Animations:

* Cracks knuckles and says "Let's make this quick."

* Walks in slowly and strikes a martial arts pose

* Stands still, while saying "You don't stand a chance."

* Stretches arms and says "I used to be a mute. That's what you'll be when I'm done with you."

Overall Playstyle: Batgirl is a quick yet powerful character. She has good maneuverability since she is fast (though slower than Catwoman), has a grappling gadgets to allow her to hide on vantage points, and can glide using her cape. She works best as a physical fighter, since she does not have as many gadgets as Batman, Robin, or Nightwing, reflecting how in the comics she prefers her martial arts styles over using weapons or gadgets.

Special Vision: All characters will have their own version of Detective Mode. Batgirl's is also known as Detective Mode, however it is a different color than Batman's, being a red color. Unarmed enemies are light blue, while armed enemies are a brighter orange.


* Batarangs - The Batarangs operate the same as Batman's Batarange, Nightwing's Wing Dings, Robin's Shuriken, and Catwoman's Bolas. The quickfire batarang is the same as Batman's and is operated by tapping L1 or LB.

* Triple Batclaw - This gadget was used by Batman in Arkham Asylum, and is now used by Batgirl. It is a Batclaw consisting or three separate claws. Using this, Batgirl can grapple to vantage points, grapple up to higher ledges, and grab enemies, just like with the normal batclaw. However, she can grab up to three enemies at once. Also, when confronted with a collapsible wall, the triple batclaw can be shot at it, and it will latch into the wall. The wall can then be pulled down, opening a new area, but also alerting enemies. The quickfire triple batclaw will latch onto the three nearest foes (if there are that many within range).

* Spark Bomb - A glorified sparkler, spark bombs are a distraction tool can be thrown down to create blinding flashes of light as well as large crackling noises. When thrown close to an enemy, the thug will be completely stunned and unable to see, leaving them open for attack. When one is set off farther away from a group of enemies, they will go to investigate the flashing and the loud noises, making them abandon their posts. This can only be used once during a challenge. The quickfire spark bomb is useful in combat maps, since it is able to blind enemies when they are in large groups, causing them to randomly attack each other in hopes of getting you.

* Capture Disc - A disc-shaped object that, when thrown, releases a strong wire that wraps itself around the enemy that the disc was thrown at. Once hit, they are wrapped in the wire and collapse to the ground, making them easy targets. If they are not dealt with immediately, then other thugs have the chance to go over and free them from the trap. Batgirl has an unlimited supply of these, but if one is used on a second thug while another enemy is already tied up, then the already captured enemy will break themselves out while the second enemy will be tied up.

Anyway, since Batgirl wasn't in the game, I'm also going to make a character bio for her in the description here (I'll also do it for anyone else I do who wasn't in Arkham City):


Information -
Real Name: Cassandra Cain
Occupation: Vigilante Crimefighter
Based In: Gotham City

Bio -
The daughter of assassins David Cain and Lady Shiva, Cassandra Cain was trained from a young age to be a killer and the ultimate bodyguard for Ra's Al Ghul. Although she was not taught how to speak, she was trained in reading the body language of others, making her a deadly assassin due to her skills in martial arts as well as in perception.
After her first real kill, she was horrified, and fled from her father to Gotham City. Meeting Oracle after the earthquake that turned Gotham into a No Man's Land, both Batman and Oracle approved of her becoming the next Batgirl in order to redeem herself. Since then, she has learned to speak and has adjusted to nonfatal combat.
Although not present in Arkham City, Batgirl has been working outside of the prison's walls to keep Gotham safe from Strange's influence.

Attributes -
* Trained with deadly proficiency in several forms of martial arts
* Capable of reading a person's body language
* Access to most of Batman's gadgets, despite preferring hand-to-hand combat
