* AppropriatedAppellation: In ''Batman: The Man Who Laughs'', it's established that the name was given to him by the media, and he liked it so much that he decided to call himself that.

to:

** In one issue of ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'', he claims to have been driven insane by an abusive grandmother, who also bleached his skin to its present pallor.
*** In the same continuity, he ''is one'' to a baby gorilla he adopts, trains up as a gun-wielding henchman, and ultimately gets killed off for laughs.

* CriticalPsychoanalysisFailure: Happens frequently, though this may be an indication of the competence of the staff at Arkham. One such time was with Dr. Harleen Quinzel, who bought his story hook, line and sinker and declared him sane, then broke him out of Arkham and started dating him (of course, her exact analysis was that he was utilising ObfuscatingInsanity and it's implied that she was actually ''right'', so perhaps she was the only good doctor at Arkham after all...)

Added DiffLines:

* GadgeteerGenius: While he seems to be a chemist first and foremost, the Joker has no trouble coming up with a range of tools and weapons of his own design and is easily as smart as Batman in this area. Other stories show that he has a solid enough understanding of such varied fields as engineering, computers and even robotics that he can at least hijack the sophisticated inventions of others and use them for his own ends with no difficulty whatsoever, and he is generally implied (though rarely outright stated) to have had a scientific background prior to becoming the Clown Prince of Crime.


Added DiffLines:

* MasterOfDisguise: A talent he possesses even in his earliest stories. Joker is an expert with make-up, costumes and impersonations and has posed as everything from police officers to doctors to even Batman himself. He can go to extremely elaborate lengths to pull off his deceptions too, fabricating entire backstories and staying in-character for months at a time to see his plans through.

* VillainousFriendship: No matter how bad things turned out last time, LexLuthor and Joker will ''always'' work together again.
