The Joker is a Batman villain that appeared in LEGO Batman: The Videogame. He was once a petty criminal who fell into a vat of chemicals. The toxic brew turned his skin white, his hair green, and his lips red, giving him the appearance of a crazed clown. Taking the alias of "the Joker," he henceforth started executing schemes that involve both jokes and puns.
After orchestrating the breakout at Arkham Asylum, he becomes one of the three main villains that form a group of inmates to perform crimes. He, along with Harley Quinn, Scarecrow, Killer Moth, and the Mad Hatter, plan to detonate several bombs in Gotham Cathderal and cover Gotham City in Joker Gas. He first goes to a chemical factory with Mad Hatter to create his Joker Gas. Next, he and Harley Quinn capture Commissioner Gordon to lure Batman and Robin to circus and attempt to defeat them. He and Scarecrow, then engage the Dynamic Duo in a mid-air battle, in which both villains crash their planes into the Gotham Art Gallery. Joker and Killer Moth then move towards the Cathederal to prepare the bombs, but Joker later dispatches Killer Moth to delay Batman and Robin when they begin to catch up to them. He and Quinn then arrive at the Cathederal and set up the deadly bombs. Batman and Robin thwart him, but in a last ditch attempt, he attacks the Duo with his joy buzzer, knocking them out. As he moves in for the kill, Batman strikes a bell, full of bats, causing the bats to attack Joker and Quinn, disorientating them as Commissioner Gordon and the police arrive at the scene. He is last seen in his cell at Arkham. Angry at his defeat, he pulls a gun out and holds it to his head. He pulls the trigger, and a "Boom" Flag shoots out, causing the Joker to laugh hysterically.
The Joker returns in the sequel, again as a main antagonist. Along with Two Face, Harley Quinn, The Riddler and The Penguin, he attacks the Man of the Year Award ceremony and stole the trophy. Batman and Robin arrived to arrest him and defeated him, but Batman knocks him right into his speedboat, which he escapes in. The Dynamic Duo use the Batwing and defeated him in Gotham Fun Land, where in rage he kicked the Batwing and ended up causing a net to hit himself. Lex Luthor, who observed him during his raid on the Man of the Year Award ceremony, frees him and seeks his help in winning the election in return for using the Deconstructor, a gun which can destroy any shiny black object. The Joker frees most of the inmates and escapes alongside Lex. He steals some chemicals from Ace Chemical Plant to create fake Kryptonite, making Batman and Robin track him. They obtain the fake Kryptonite, but Joker destroys the Batmobile and uses the fake to track them to the Batcave. Lex and Joker destroy the Batcave, the Batwing, the Batboat and the Batbike, steal all of the Kryptonite Batman was hoarding and escape in a Lexcorp ship to Metropolis. Oddly, despite realizing the Batcave was under Wayne Manor, neither of them realized anything about Batman's identity.
Batman and Superman chase the ship and enter it, but Joker activates a trap door that drops Batman out of the ship, forcing Superman to catch him. Lex and Joker create a giant Kryptonite-powered robot for their schemes. When Batman and Superman enter the Lexcorp building, Lex uses the Kryptonite to weaken Superman, then drops an iron weight on Batman and heads to Gotham. However, Batman and Superman switched outfits inside the elevator, so they survive and go after them. Superman is weakened for real when Lex uses the Kryptonite, but Batman sabotages the robot and sends it crashing near the Metro Station. Superman and Batman attack it, but are forced to escape in the metro with the robot damaging the line. Lex arrives at Gotham City Hall for his candidature speech. The joker uses his mind control gas upon the public, but Batman and Superman destroy the gas dispenser. Superman attacks the robot core and faints, and the Joker tries to kill Batman with the Deconstructor but is thwarted by Robin in his own Batmobile.
Lex and the Joker chase the Dynamic Duo through the streets, but Batman lured them on a specific route to create a trail in the shape of Joker's face, thus alerting the Justice League. Realizing his plans are ruined, Lex decides that they will attack Wayne Tower, but Superman and Wonder Woman keep it from falling. Batman, Robin, Green Lantern and Cyborg fight the robot at the top and knock it off the building. The Joker has a final fight against Batman, Robin, Cyborg, Green Lantern, The Flash and Wonder Woman and is ultimately defeated and taken to jail with Lex by Commisioner Gordon.
