This mallet is used by Harley Quinn. It appears to be an ordinary wooden mallet, but with a smiley face painted onto it.
Preparation for the Battle of Midway City
The head of the mallet itself appears to be made out of normal wood, and is circled by a red-and-black harlequin pattern; its handle is blue with a black grip.
Like many of her other possessions, Quinn altered its appearance by doodling a smiley face with crossed out eyes on one of the head's blunt ends.
Behind the scenes
- In the comics, Harley Quinn's mallet is one of her signature weapons. The first instance of Harley using a mallet came in The New Batman Adventures, in the series' debut episode "Holiday Knights". In the episode, Batman chases Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy into a toy store, and while hiding in an FAO Schwarz-esque display, Harley takes an oversized mallet from a nutcracker animatronic and hits Batman in the head at point-blank range.
- In February 2020, the mallet was introduced in the video game Fortnite: Battle Royale as a Harvesting Tool, naming it "Punchline".
