* EvenEvilHasStandards: Oddly enough, this trope does occasionally apply to him.
** Turned against the Red Skull the very instant he found out he was a Nazi.
** Will not harm dumb animals.
** Sees nothing funny about someone parking in a handicap spot when they're not handicapped. However, he ''does'' think it's hilarious to hurt them in ways that will make certain they'll always be able to park there.

Despite not having any superpowers, The Joker is often regarded as one of the most feared villians in DC Comics due to being incredibly cunning and morally uninhibited. He's intelligent enough to regularly match wits with Batman and depraved enough to commit acts so horrible that even other supervillians find them to be unsavory. Although the Joker sometimes does join forces with other supervillains such as the Penguin and ComicBook/TwoFace, and groups like the Injustice Gang and Injustice League, these relationships often collapse due to the Joker's desire for unbridled chaos. ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'' introduced a romantic interest for the Joker in his former psychiatrist, ComicBook/HarleyQuinn, who becomes his villainous sidekick. Although his primary obsession is Batman, the Joker has also fought other heroes including Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/WonderWoman.

Added DiffLines:

* BadPeopleAbuseAnimals: Defied by The Joker in at least one story (''ComicBook/EmperorJoker''). Evil Jimmy Olson kills Superman, who has been turned into a dog, by crushing him underneath a fire hydrant. The Joker is simply annoyed, because he doesn't know how to make something as pointless as beating a dumb animal funny. Jimmy Olson is then beaten to death by two giant robots who appear out of nowhere.

* BondVillainStupidity: In a "Detective Comics" story written by Creator/PaulDini, the Joker (while impersonating a stage magician he had previously murdered) shot Zatanna in the throat so she couldn't recite a spell to save her, then locked her in a tank of water while strapping Batman in an electric chair. He didn't [[StatingTheSimpleSolution shoot her in the head]] because he wanted Batman to watch helplessly as she died. This didn't go so well because first, he's BATMAN! and second, Zatanna was able to write a healing incantation on the lid of the tank [[BloodMagic using her own blood, which made the spell even more powerful]].

The Joker is a fictional comic book character, a supervillain who appears in comic books published by Creator/DCComics as a member of Franchise/{{Batman}}'s RoguesGallery. He first appeared in ''Batman #1'' (25 April, 1940). He was created by Bob Kane, Bill Fingers and Jerry Robinson, though credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, but acknowledged Finger's writing contribution. Originally he was to die at the end of his first appearance, but the comic's editor wouldn't allow it.
