Built as a precaution should he ever be separated from the primary Batcave under Wayne Manor, that "Batcave" was one of many "satellite-caves" established by Bruce Wayne as a base-of-operations within Gotham City. That cave, located directly beneath Arkham Asylum, would prove itself useful when Batman became trapped on Arkham Island during the Arkham Asylum Incident.
Suspended over an abyss, that cave possessed its own Batcomputer, an emergency Batwing, and various utility tools to complement the tools that Batman already carried.
The cave was accessible from various points, and possessed a security entrance at the base of Dead Man's Point (A cliff on the island that was popular for suicides), and access to the island's underground Caves and the Old Sewer System.
Before Arkham Asylum Incident
At an unknown period of time, Batman discovered a cave system beneath Arkham Island and established a "satellite-cave" within it to serve as an emergency location for rest and re-supply. Batman kept that Batcave a secret even from his most trusted allies.
Arkham Asylum Incident
After he discovered that Dr. Penelope Young might be involved in creating a formula by using Venom as a base, Batman contacted Oracle to investigate while he made his way to the satellite-cave via Dead Man's Point.
Once in the cave, Batman accessed the Batcomputer and deduced the Joker's plan to use Dr. Young's formula to create an army of Bane-like monsters. Batman returned to the surface, and later returned to the cave to create an antidote for the formula, named Titan, just as the Joker injected Poison Ivy with it. Ivy's powers over her plants increased dramatically, and in her attempt to strangle the island in colossal vines, she penetrated and destroyed the Batcave.
- PlayStation 3 players could obtain a similar Batcave, known as the "Batman: Arkham Asylum Batcave Outpost", as an apartment for their PlayStation Home. The Outpost contained a Batsuit Vault, a Batmobile, and a Batwing, along with various Bat Gadgets.
- Batman had another cave underneath Blackgate Prison in Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate.
