  • Guns
  • Jester Cane sword  - Although it looks like a ordinary cane, the jester cane contains a thin-razor sharp sword.
  • Razor-sharp Playing Cards -The Joker's playing cards are used much like shuriken - he can throw them with astounding accuracy, and they have been shown to be sharp enough to damage Batman's gliding harness.
  • Electric Joy Buzzer - The joy buzzer is one of the Joker's most prominent weapons worn on the hand as a ring, it discharges a lethal electric current into anything that comes into contact. Whilst it has been used for assassinations by tricking the victim into shaking hands, it is also used as a hand-to-hand weapon and can even be used as a battery for powering machinery.
  • Harpoon Gun -The Joker's harpoon gun initially takes the appearance of a harmless toy gun that shoots a small flag reading "BANG!". However, after a second pull of the trigger, the flag blasts out of the barrel and impales the target. Notably, in Batman Beyond: Return of the Joker, the harpoon gun was used by Tim Drake to kill the Joker.
  • Acid Flower - The flower that the Joker wears on his lapel can squirt a wide variety of chemicals. The chemical in the flower depends on the Joker's mood - it can be poison, Joker venom, acid, water or even nothing at all.
