Harley's Gang

Harley's symbol

Harley's Gang were Joker's former henchmen who appeared in Harley Quinn's Revenge and in Batman: Arkham Knight. The thugs were sent to complete specific missions that were commanded by their new leader, Harley Quinn who had gone crazier since the Joker's death and sought revenge on Batman for it. Their main mission in Harley Quinn's Revenge was to kill Batman. In Arkham Knight, their main mission was to free the new Jokers at Panessa Studios.

Arkham City Incident[]

Harley ruled the Joker's Gang while Joker was ill. Harley's priority was to find doctors to cure Joker, but none of them could help him, so she decided to start looking for Mr. Freeze. Freeze managed to make a cure for Joker. While Freeze and Batman were fighting, Harley managed to steal the cure from him and she "gave it" to her puddin. "Joker" took over the gang again after being "cured".

Harley Quinn's Revenge Incident[]

After Joker's death, Harley claimed her lover's crew and changed them with a new look and name. Harley´s Gang was under 100% rule by Harley and their main objective was to avenge Joker's death. Unfortunately for Harley, she didn’t possess the charisma, leadership skills, and fear/worship over her subjects the way Joker had, and her deteriorating sanity lead to many questioning her. This lead her having to deal with desertions and mutiny in her ranks on a regular basis. Sadly it's most likely that the gang only remained loyal to her out of respect to their former boss, or fear of being on their own in Arkham City, as Joker goons were among the most hated.

Harley's Gang used colors like red and black, and, instead of green, they had diamonds in their clothes. Harley's Gang had a sad smile, their eyes had black paint around them, and Armored Henchmen had Harley's face on their helmets.

Arkham Knight Incident[]


Harley's Gang fighting Batman and Robin at Panessa Studios in Arkham Knight

Harley and her crew returned a year later forming an uneasy alliance with their former rivals under the leadership of Scarecrow. While most gangs occupied the city and worked to take down Batman, Harley had other plans to breakout a group of "Joker's" from Panessa Studios after a secret source reached out. Compared to the other factions of the conflict, the gang unfortunately was still arguably lacking in terms of equipment and strength. However Harley Quinn seemed to have undergone an improvement in leadership and respect among her thugs.

Their appearance didn't change much, but instead of Armored Henchmen, Harley had Brutes with her body in tattooed on the back of their coat and she had Minigunners. Their mission was to break out the new Jokers and add them to the gang to help Harley cause chaos in Gotham.

They only could be seen at Panessa Studios. Harley's Gang were the only crew to not appear at the GCPD Lockup; it's likely they were locked into the sets instead.

Harley's Thugs wore similar clothing to that of Penguin's Henchmen, and others wore singlets, full body clothes, and armored pieces that resembled football gear. These thugs roamed the Industrial District as the rest of Arkham City was off limits in Harley Quinn's Revenge. Harley's Thugs also used the same stealth, combat, and weapon tactics as the other thugs in Batman: Arkham City. In Arkham Knight, they didn't change much, but instead of Armored Henchmen, Harley had Brutes and Minigunners.

Gear and Weapons[]



  • According to an Arkham Knight Story, the new uniforms were based on playing cards, not Harley's iconic uniform.
  • A henchman named Scratchy attempted to kill Harley in July, six months after Joker died; her mourning was dragging the gang down. He attempted to place a bomb in the TV mannequin of Joker, only to be taken put by Harley herself.
  • At least three members are killed due to Christina Bell and Albert King.
  • As they don't have a cell in GCPD, it's presumed they remained locked up in Panessa Studios until Gordon arrests them.
