This mallet is used by Harley Quinn. It appears to be an ordinary wooden mallet, but with a smiley face painted onto it.

History

Preparation for the Battle of Midway City

The mallet is among the items, clothes, and weapons returned to Harley. She later opted to use her bat instead and left the mallet behind.[1]

Battle at the Booby Trap

Quinn later used the mallet to fend off Roman Sionis's goons while trapped in The Booby Trap on Amusement Mile alongside Dinah Lance, Helena Bertinelli, Renee Montoya, and Cassandra Cain.[2]

Appearance

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.[3]
  • In February 2020, the mallet was introduced in the video game Fortnite: Battle Royale as a Harvesting Tool, naming it "Punchline".
