Now, that was rude. The first boy blunder had some manners. I suppose I'm going to have to teach you a lesson so you can better follow in his footsteps...nah, I'm just gonna keep beating you with this crowbar!
~ Joker torturing Jason Todd.
[Laughs] I can't believe you got him! You expert, rootin'-tootin', eagle-eyed, Goth-loving marksman! I love it! You managed to find a way to win...and everybody still loses! [Laughs]
~ Joker's reaction to Batman saving his life from Jason.
NO! Don't spoil it, this is better! I'M THE ONLY ONE WHO'S GOING TO GET WHAT HE WANTS TONIGHT! YES! BIG-BANG-BOOM! WE ALL GO OUT TOGETHER! DON'T YOU JUST LOVE A HAPPY ENDING?! [Laughs]
~ Joker's last words as he tries to stop Batman from defusing Jason's bomb.

The Joker is the main antagonist of the 2010 animated film Batman: Under the Red Hood and its 2020 animated interactive film Batman: A Death in the Family.

Like his comic book counterpart, he is a psychotic master criminal, Batman's archnemesis, and the murderer and later attempted victim of Jason Todd, the second Robin. 

He was voiced by John DiMaggio, who also voiced General William Kincaid in X-Men: Legends, Toyman in Superman: Doomsday, Aggregor and Ragnarok in Ben 10: Ultimate Alien and Rough Cut in DC Showcase: Catwoman.

What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Breaking his deal with Ra's al Ghul, who originally hired him as a distraction, by kidnapping Robin.
  • Beating up the second Robin (Jason Todd) with a crowbar and then leaving him to die in a warehouse full of bombs.
  • Would taunt Batman of how he killed Jason when the former tried to press him for information on the Red Hood.
  • Murdering five of Black Mask's henchmen for no reason.
  • Betraying Black Mask by gagging him and his henchmen, along with the Red Hood’s henchmen, nearly burning them all alive just to get Red Hood’s attention.
  • Preventing Batman from disarming a bomb the Red Hood activated, intending to die with him and Jason.
