Game Information
Voice Actor N/A
First Appearance Arkham Asylum: Living Hell #1 (July 2003)
An obese, bald man nicknamed "Humpty Dumpty" for his egg-like form, Humphry Dumpler is obsessed with taking things apart and putting them back together. His crimes at first were minor break-ins, leading to small mechanical items no longer functioning due to Dumpler's inability to adequately reassemble them after taking them apart. But soon his obsession grew to the point that major disasters occurred in Gotham, and Dumpler's crimes also extended to a gruesome attempt to "fix" his abusive grandmother by dismembering her and then attempting a Frankenstein-like reassembly. At Arkham he is a model inmate, his quiet nature and imposing physique inuring him to the madness surrounding him.

Incident Reports

Arkham Origins Incident

During the events on Christmas Eve, Humphrey Dumpler was presumably spending Christmas with his family (it is unknown if he had any besides his grandmother, though). It is presumed he has not yet committed the crime that caused him to be sent to Arkham, as the facility is not yet opened at this time.

Between Arkham Origins and Assault on Arkham Incident

Humpler was planning to murder his grandmother and later trying to fix her. He murdered his grandmother and was arrested.

Assault on Arkham Incident

Humpler was sent to Arkham Asylum for treatment and to bring back his sanity.

Road to Arkham Incident

Somewhere between Arkham Origins and Arkham Asylum, Dumpler was arrested and sent to Arkham Asylum, when he tried to "fix" his abusive grandmother by dissembling her and trying to put her back together as a Frankenstein-like form. At Arkham, he was presumably under the care of Dr. Young.

Arkham Asylum Incident

Although he doesn't appear in game, a pile of Humpty's broken wooden toy soldiers can be found in Botanical Gardens. Humpty was possibly in the Botanical Gardens before or during Joker's Takeover, it is unknown. In the chaos Humpty Dumpty escaped the island with other villains Mr. FreezeGreat White SharkPenguinRatcatcherMaxie ZeusRiddlerCalendar ManTweedledum and TweedledeeFireflyKiller MothVentriloquist, and Black Mask.

After Arkham Incident

Humpty was possibly later captured by Hugo Strange and was taken to Arkham City because Arkham Asylum was closed down by Mayor Quincy Sharp.

Arkham City Incident

While Dumpler doesn't appear in Arkham City, it's unlikely that an individual as unskilled as himself evaded capture. He was killed during Protocol 10.

After Arkham City Incident

Humpty was killed during Protocol 10. He wasn't mentioned anymore.

Before Arkham Knight Incident

Humpty was killed during Arkham City events.

Psychological Profile

Humpty Dumpty

Real Name: Humphry Dumpler

Batman's Database Profile


Dr. Penelope Young


Psychological Profile: Developmentally disabled, with an IQ of just under 70 and symptoms of emotional retardation and regression, Dumpler is also extremely obese. Dumpler's most intriguing mental disorder is his obsessive-compulsive fixation on fixing broken items. This manifested itself most notably in a fascinating (albeit horrific) attempt to "fix" an abusive relative through dismemberment and reassembly.

Additional Notes:

His imposing physique intimidates many orderlies, guards, and inmates, but his simple mental state makes him easy to manipulate and control, so I find no reason to be afraid of him.


  • Extremely tall, heavy, and strong
  • Possesses an almost unnaturally quiet, deliberate nature
  • Ritualized childhood abuse has led to a severe case of arrested development and an inability to assimilate into modern society
  • Obsessed with the processes of disassembly and reassembly



  • It is likely Dumpler spent most of his free time in the Botanical Gardens, as most of his disassembled toys are located there.
    • When scanning these toys, the player can solve Nygma's riddle, "Looks like all the king's horses trampled all the king's men", and will unlock Humpty Dumpty's biography.
