I'm seeing stuff elsewhere about how it unlocks all characters during free play or allows you to play as special characters, but I still have access to all characters with it disabled, and I can't see how to access these extra character's.

Extra Toggle gives you access to some bonus characters on certain levels that you can't play as otherwise. The characters usually don't have any real advantages; they're just there for fun.

Any examples? I'd like to see the effect to make sure I recognize it. – deworde Nov 3 '12 at 20:31
@deworde: I've heard that some examples are Penguin robots and an Old Lady. In Star Wars I know that you could play as a Womp Rat which was fun. I can't find a list for Batman 2, but here's a list of the characters in other games. – Ullallulloo Nov 3 '12 at 20:44

Worked this out. The critical difference is between the characters you can select from the menu (hold Y-button on X-box) which (LB/RB on X-Box), which allows you to cycle through a small subset of characters.

As this answer says the Extra Toggle allows you some extra odd-ball characters, but only affects the LB/RB set.
