Joker Characterization Analysis
The Joker is a manipulative, sly villain. In the The
Dark Knight, the Joker passively allows Batman to
throw him around the room, all along, laughing at
Batman’s rage. This means the Joker enjoys getting
under Batman’s skin. It matters because it
demonstrates the viciousness that villains like the
Joker possess. Overall, Joker’s mischievous
personality leads him to cause Batman to be the
monster in each situation.
