* AbusiveParents: He In the animated series, he claims to have been beaten as a child when interviewed by Harley Quinn. It is unknown if this is true. According to Batman, he's simply making it up.



* {{Foil}}: To Batman. While Batman is a rather serious character who also refuses to kill anyone, The Joker is a rather comical character who revels in death. In addition, his gadgets tend to be rather goofier but much more lethal, such as the Joker Venom that he often uses to kill his victims. Furthermore, while Batman gets along well with his sidekicks Robin and Batgirl, Joker frequently abuses his sidekick Harley Quinn and has tried to kill her before.

He possesses no superhuman abilities, instead utilising his expertise in chemical engineering to develop poisonous or lethal concoctions, and thematic weaponry, including razor-tipped playing cards, deadly joy buzzers, and acid-spraying lapel flowers. Although the Joker sometimes works 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, Harley Quinn, who becomes his villainous sidekick. Although his primary obsession is Batman, the Joker has also fought other heroes including Franchise/{{Superman}} and Franchise/WonderWoman.
