* The chilling moment when Batman first appears onscreen, looming over two petty thugs and opening his massive wings like a ghastly gargoyle, marvelously sets the tone of his mythical character. The fleeing villains were paralyzed with terror as the monstrous living-shadow stood up unharmed from their barrage of gunfire, and were driven ''so'' mad with fear that they can only incoherently cry to the police "I'm telling ya man; a giant bat." [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_H4-E3bWVd0 Even more horrifying when watched in black and white.]]

* Roman Sionis. Or as his well known alias in crime, The Black Mask. Roman is another dark image on what would of happened or came to be if Bruce was a remorseless business mongol. [[spoiler: Roman Sionis's road to crime began because of a few mistakes on his poor planning and control in business. Seeing turmoil of Roman's mistakes, Bruce Wayne bought the struggling business from Roman and relieved him of his control and began fluctuating his once previously owned business the Janus Cosmetic company and began making it return in booming success. Roman was outraged by this. In turn he founded the False Face Society and undertook many autocracies and became a [[BigBad big player]] in the criminal underworld.]] Not only does he deal in the [[ColdBloodedTorture "arrangements"]] of his business against his own associates or rivals alike, he makes sure that he get's his points across as best as he can. And as a Bonus! During a certain moment in Batman's crime fighting career, during a bout against the Dark Knight. [[spoiler: Roman's desperate attempt to thwart Batman and Robin at his father's manor ended up with Roman setting it ablaze. Desperate to flee the burning structure, Batman and Robin incapacitate his legs with a batarang attached cable causing him to fall face first into his engulfed flaming toys causing his horrific accident into fruition.]] Roman ended up [[BodyHorror searing the very mask that is forever bound to his face]]. His face, now a grimacing skull of hate and rage as an untitled vendetta against Batman and his allies. He should definitely be mentioned here for the horrific inducing moments that he has delivered in Gotham City.

* Professor Pyg is what would happen if DavidLynch created a Batman villain. He's a middle aged man with a pig mask and butcher clothing and he's ''terrifying.'' In his first appearance, he has a bunch of Dollotrons (human zombie dolls) hold a criminal accomplice down so Pyg can make him one as well and tells said accomplice that he'll then help Pyg do the same to the man's niece. Then, in the third appearance, he gives a tied Robin (Damian Wayne) a very odd and disturbing MotiveRant that seeps quickly into a VillainousBreakdown, all while dancing with power tools to "sexy hot" disco music. Robin simply responds as he breaks free, [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m7mn1u1v1p1qz742do1_1280.jpg "You just redefined 'wrong'."]]

* Doctor Death, a recurring villain for Cassandra Cain, is an arms dealer that specializes in weapons of mass destruction. At one point, he creates a gas that ''turns people into oil'' which would then be sold to help fund a tyrannical regime. Another time, he harvests hundreds of corpses to create a drug called Soul that turns people AxeCrazy. His motivations seem to solely be a combination of money and ForScience.
** An interesting thing to take note on Doctor Death, he was the very first recurring villain to actually tangle with the Batman in the same year as the Cape Crusader made his first appearance in 1939! As the years continued, so did his vile hatred of the Batman and his ungodly experiments and private war against "do gooders" alike.
*** His New 52 incarnation is nothing to laugh at either. Taking place in Batman: Year Zero, Doctor Death creates a serum that would strengthen bones to eradicate 'human weakness'. Let's just say that with his creation of said serum [[spoiler:He tested it on himself first]] also comes high levels of BodyHorror.

Later it's revealed he was one of three doctors studying regenerative drugs. His area of study was hard tissue, and his experiments caused his skeleton to grow uncontrollably [[BodyHorror without regard for his organs or muscles]]. The others, Hugo Strange and Paul Dekker, studied brain and soft tissue regeneration, respectively. To put it in perspective, the treatments they designed somehow went even worse than Hellfern's.

* In the 1989 film:
** The [[ElectricJoybuzzer Lethal Joy Buzzer]] scene. Before, during and especially ''after''.
** Anytime Jack/Joker shows true menace without a hint of irony, such as Nicholson's line reading, "But you can't make an omelette without ''breaking'' some ''eggs''", punctuated with breaking Alicia's mask.

[[folder:The 1989 film]]

* The scenes with Joker wearing skin colored make up in place over his now bleach white skin. Also, the scene where Joker challenges Batman to reveal himself after the Joker himself "took off his make up". Bruce then pauses the video on Joker's sinister grin and then we are treated to a flashback where it is revealed that The Joker as a young Jack Naiper killed his parents. The scene flashes back to Bruce who then turns to the screen in complete shock and the very next scene show is a [[NightmareFuel close up and freeze frame]] picture of Joker's [[SlasherSmile sinister grin]] looking straight at the viewer.
* When the Joker calmly gives a lighthearted speech to the city that ends on the note "Oh, by the way, I've randomly decided that I'm going to kill you all with the grossest-looking gas ever." You see it coming and everything, but the way he played it is creepy beyond reason.
-->'''Joker:''' ''...And now, comes the part... Where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But, as my plastic surgeon always said: "If you've gotta go, go with a smile!" [[EvilLaugh Hee hee hee hee ha ha HAAA!!]]''

** Part of what makes him so scary is how ''random'' he is-he can be a harmless jester pulling elaborate pranks one minute and without warning try to poison the whole of Gotham. The worst part is that the Joker doesn't seem to notice any difference; pin-balling from HarmlessVillain to crossing the MoralEventHorizon is as easy as breathing for him.

''[[AC:ComicBook/BatmanEndgame]]''
* After Jim Gordon had shot the Joker, it looked like it was over until he stood up and took Jim's phone. The reader doesn't know what happened until the end of the issue.
* The comic brings up the possibility that the Joker is an EldritchAbomination terrorizing Gotham for centuries.
* All of the possible origin stories for the Joker told by the insane patients were a bit unsettling.
