Arkham City Bio
With an obsessive-complusive need for attention, Edward Nigma is ddetermined to be the cleverest of Gotham's criminals, plotting elaborate trails of clues and riddles around his crimes.
Batman has proven a worthy opponent, capable of unraveling the Riddler's most intricate plans, but Nigma is dedicated to creating a mystery that will stump the Dark Knight, even if he has to kill someone to do it.
Humiliated by Batman on Arkham Island, Nigma is more determined than ever to bring the Caped Crusader to his knees.

Additional Information
Abused brutally as a child, Edward became obsessed with trying to prove his worth to others via his impressive IQ - though often cheated and boasted his way to the top. By donning the persona of the Riddler, he soon became over-confident of his abilities, and grew a narcissistic attitude and a compulsive need for attention. Despite lacking physical strength, Riddler's mind bending puzzles and death traps provide a strong psychological opposition for the Dark Knight. He sees it as a personal mission to rid the world of the stupid, and dreams of solving the ultimate riddle - Batman's true identity.Thanks to TheJester.

Possible role in Arkham 3
How do you follow up taking the Arkham City medical team hostage? The answer will be found in the next game and will undoubtably be a test of Batman's mind and will.The lunatic-wearing-a-Bat-costume has beaten Edward again; but no one is smarter than the Riddler, no one. Watch out for bigger, badder, more mind-bending challenges as Riddler once again matches wits with the Dark Knight.Thanks to Skare_Krow_.

Essential reading
Batman: Hush, Detective Comics 822 and 828, Secret Origins Special 1, The Long Halloween, Catwoman: When In Rome Thanks to TheJester.

Chances of Appearing in Arkham 3: 6.5/10
Likely, but I can't think of anything new he could do short of a virtual reality.

I'll type up a possible role soon...

Possible role: With batman making him walk around his lair until he figures out he had been tricked, he is raving for revenge. With his many challenges adding a lot more playtime to both arkham asylum and city, it is wise to predict that we have not seen the last of the riddle-obsessed villan.

Chances to appear: 8.5/10

Role: I always saw riddler as the third main villain in AC (with Joker as the main and Hugo as the second) and the second in AA (with joker as the main). I dont see any reason to remove the riddler challenges from the gameplay, and i think a side mission fitted him quite well. And oh, riddler is awesome c:

10/10 chance of being in Arkham 3.

The guy and his riddles are staples of the series now. They're as much a part of the gameplay as detective vision or gliding is.

Chances of appearing: 8.0000000001/10
Possible Role: Well, he's even more pissed off before. I doubt the hostage situations will return, because we know how bad they were (except for the last two). I feel that Riddler wasn't a big challenge in AC. Sure he was hard to finish but they weren't too hard. But with RS laying out the new riddler trophy puzzles, I'm sure we'll see him in another sidemission. Let's hope that the riddles are better this time.

Possible role in Arkham 3
Riddler will have to step up his game, for Arkham 3 having been humiliated by Batman twice recently. More fatal traps more confusing riddles and after completing these batman must face the riddlers biggest challenge ... The riddle of the Minotaur....

Chances of appearing in arkham 3 10/10

I think they'll give Nigma a bit of a break for the next game. There's no doubt in my mind that he'll likely make an appearance or AT LEAST get a reference, but I don't think he'll be playing a significant role like the last two games. RS shouldn't try and tire out the character for its players... Make some room for someone else this time, rather than try and cram everyone in.

I think Riddler should be a major villain in A3,not just a side mission.That,or not at all.Collecting trophies again will be just boring.I'd love it if you had to rescue hostages again,i liked the little puzzles you had to go through.
When the mugger or the thief stops to think twice,that is fear.That is what I am.Tonight will not be my end,but it will be theirs!
