That Goon was a flamboyant dancer, who often spun around in a circle. He was first seen in a meeting with the Gotham City Crimelords where the Joker killed Antoine Rotelli, and forced the gangsters out of Carl Grissom's den. That goon accompanied Joker as a mime during the Joker's attack on Vinnie Ricorso, who pulled out a machine gun, along with the other goons at the moment of the murder. He was later seen with the rest of the goons at the Flugelheim Museum, placing candles on Joker and Vicki Vale's table. He was present during Gotham City's 200th Anniversary Parade, who danced and threw money out to the crowd.
As the Joker headed into the Gotham Cathedral with Vicki, that goon followed, where he was flanked by Lawrence and the Belltower Joker Goon. When Batman took pursuit of the Joker, that goon met him at the Bell Tower, engaged him in combat, and protected Joker from Batman while he escaped. He leaped at Batman feet first, and ejected twin blades from hidden compartments on his legs. Batman ejected a device from his gauntlet that hit the goon's groin, which quickly knocked him out.
As he survived his ordeal with Batman, it's assumed that he was later taken into police custody, along with the other Joker Goons.
Behind the ScenesEdit
- It was revealed in the Novelization that the Joker had hired that thug from a "Kung Fu Studio".
- In the Comic Adaptation, he got killed. Batman knocked him backwards towards the open shaft of the bell tower, but before he fell in, Batman was attacked from behind by Lawrence. He threw Lawrence into the Gymnast Joker Goon, the two of them fell down the shaft together and died.
