"Well, that was very brief. Just like all the men in my life. Oh what men? Well then again then there's you. But you need therapy."
Selina Kyle to the passed out terrifying clown.[src]

The Terrifying Clown was a thug working for The Penguin, as a member of the Red Triangle Circus Gang.


This man dressed as a clown, and operated through the criminal organization the Red Triangle Gang. As Batman approached him during an attack by the gang on Gotham City, this man grabbed the passing Selina Kyle and threatened to harm her with an O-Mega Taser if Batman didn't retreat.

Batman shot a projectile at a building wall behind the clown. The clown believed Batman had tried to hit him with it, and mocked him saying "you missed". Batman then jerked hard on the projectile's cord, which tore loose a chunk of the wall that hit the clown in the back of his head, instantly knocking him out. Selina thanked Batman for saving her, and after he left without saying anything Selina inspected the clown's taser then briefly shocked him with it, letting out a giggle of surprise and excitement.

He may have been arrested before Penguin's death.

After becoming Catwoman, Selina Kyle would use this man's taser to electrocute Max Shreck to death.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • In one of the first script drafts, his taser would have originally been used by Catwoman to electrocute and scar Harvey Dent, not Max Shreck.
  • He's the first boss in the Super Nintendo video game adaptation of Batman Returns, under the name "Stungun Clown".
