1. Exactly how do you make the thugs terrified during the Stealth Gameplay? 
 
2. How do you play the Joker Challenge Maps? I've already installed the DLC but I can't find it anywhere in the game menu.

You can make the thugs terrified by doing an inverted takedown on one of them and then swinging to a different gargoyle statue and wait for the other thugs to come over. When they reach him throw your batarang at the rope he's hanging on and it will make the other thugs shit themselves. 
 
Not sure about the Joker stuff though.

@lukeissxc: I tried that once but even though they reacted to it with surprise and possibly fear, it didn't really switch them from "nervous" to "terrified" when observed with Detective Mode.

Just taking them out makes them more scared. When you get down to the last guy he'll be terrified, or he is for me

Yeah, to get that last medal in the Predatory Challenge room where you have to "Appear from nowhere to suprise a terrified henchman", I had to take out all but the last to do that.  After that, I just hid out on a ledge and dropped down in front of him, scaring him backwards off some stairs.  Saved me the work of taking him out.

Huh. Ok. I always thought it was something more than just taking out guys. Thanks for the replies.

That's the problem. I can't find it anywhere. 
 
Hopefully, this will help:
 
After I installed the DLC, I noticed that the Game Data folder in my XMB had another Arkham Asylum icon with the same file size as the DLC, only this file's image had a different version of the Arkham Asylum logo.
 
I'm using a Region 2 version of the game, if that even has any connection to the problem at all.

I can't find the Joker stuff either despite downloading it as soon as I put the game in.

Hm, that's weird. Did you download it from the US PSN store?

Yeah. My account is for the US PSN.

  That would probably be why then because the US is region 1.  What is region 2? Europe? You should try there if they have it at that version of the store.

Did you get it pre-owned or new?

Yeah. It's the European version. Oddly enough, International release of this version was earlier than the local release by two days.
 
Anyway, this is the first time I tried downloading DLC for a game with a different region code. I guess it really isn't a surprise that the files are different.
 
@dbz1995: It's new. I bought it as soon as the store got copies.
