Scarecrow and Poison Ivy

Just one year after Batman: The Animated Series revolutionized cartoon superheroics, Konami put its Dark Knight license to use with a quality video game adaptation. Imagine pocket-sized action akin to Sunsoft's popular NES movie game, only much closer to its source material – including a playable Robin. Almost every major character of the time got at least a mention, and the Boy Wonder's first boss encounter was with Scarecrow, who attacked with…pumpkin bombs, for some reason. Later in the game, Batman himself took on Poison Ivy and her trademark lethal vegetation. A modest debut for each of these Injustice 2 villains – especially compared to their unforgettable future appearances in Batman: Arkham Asylum – but certainly nothing to scoff at.
