"There is also something coming this way. Very large. Very fast."
―The Poodle Lady.[src]

The Poodle Lady was a thug who worked for The Penguin, as a member of the Red Triangle Circus Gang.


The Poodle Lady was first seen in the assault of Gotham City. She sent her Poodle to blow up a store with a grenade that it carried. She was seen later with three other clowns. Batman tried to knock them all out with his Remote Control Batarang, but the Poodle Lady's Poodle caught it right before she was hit. The Poodle Lady then escaped with her poodle and the Batarang to aid the Penguin in kidnapping The Ice Princess (Penguin used the stolen Batarang to knock out the Ice Princess and incriminated Batman). After she helped the remaining members of the Red Triangle Circus Gang sabotage the Batmobile, the Poodle Lady updated the Penguin on the status of his army of Penguin Commandos in her rather deadpan voice as they approached Gotham Plaza. The Poodle Lady was last seen disappearing into the shadows after the Penguin's plan to destroy Gotham failed, but she may have been arrested after Penguin died in the ensuing battle with Batman.


The Poodle Lady had a small trained poodle who carried out criminal acts for her and guarded her fiercely. She evidently had a great bond with her poodle as she was never seen without her.
