QUOTES FROM THE JOKER
We all have our favourite Joker quote, so here is a compilation of Joker quotes. Mainly from the Rocksteady and Batman Arkham trilogy universe series. Where he appeared in all three titles including Batman Arkham Asylum, Arkham City and Arkham Knight. Though, technically the last one is up for debate.
JOKER QUOTES – BATMAN ARKHAM ASYLUM
In Batman Arkham Asylum, the Joker is determined to create his own version of a ‘Bane army’. In order to be able to achieve this he first manages to successfully obtain the blueprints to a drug known as ‘Titan’. The very same substance that Bane ends up being infected with. Hence a ‘Bane army’. It is a drug that can give the individual super strength.
The Titan was first researched and created by Dr. Penelope Young. It was part of Project Titan. Her original idea for the project was to inject the more weaker individuals, to help those select few to survive more strenuous treatments. Unknowingly, this exact same project was also funded by the Joker, as part of his plan. A plan that we see take place during Batman Arkham Asylum. His plan to ultimately create a ‘Bane army’.
It was also part of the Clown’s plan to get captured by the Dark Knight and taken to the Arkham Asylum holding cells. It was then when he would, with the help of Harley Quinn, escape too. He wanted to rule over the Arkham island and use his ‘newly created army’ to destroy Gotham City.

JOKER QUOTES – BATMAN ARKHAM CITY
In Batman Arkham City the character of the Joker is suffering the effects from the events that occurred in the previous title, Arkham Asylum.
Where the Clown Prince ended up creating a batch of TITAN, a drug with serious consequence. One that created the character of Bane as well as Joker’s Titan henchmen. However, in a case of sheer desperation to defeat the ‘Bat’, he clown decided to also take some of the drug. It didn’t exactly go as planned. Now he is sick and dying.
The only way to hope for a possible cure is to trick the Dark Knight into one of his traps, by infecting him too. That way he would be forced to find some way of recovery.
However, this is not the only trick he has up his sleeve. He also plans to surprise the Knight along with the rest of Arkham City, using a close ally that he made back at the Arkham Asylum holding cells. Clayface.

JOKER QUOTES – BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT
The way the Joker was placed into this particular game is very well written. Very creative. Though he may be part of Batman‘s imagination there is more too it than that. It seems that his story is not yet over. Having somehow made a key impression in one particular individuals past history. A negative one at that. Spoiler alert: It has left this individual with motivation for revenge and it is all due to the Joker.
In Batman Arkham Knight Joker can be found literally everywhere. On rooftops, inside buildings. Wherever and whenever. Even performing the occasional jumpscare. It is amazing how Batman has managed to keep his sanity being surrounded by one such as the Joker.
Spoiler Alert: Towards the end of the game, though some could potentially already work it out but it was inevitable that the reasoning behind Batman and his crazy Joker imagination is all down to him being injected with the blood of the clown. Which, of course, occurred during the events of Batman Arkham City.
