How Do You Unlock the Joker in Lego Batman Ps3?

If you’re a fan of the iconic DC Comics villain, the Joker, and you’re playing Lego Batman on PS3, you might be wondering how to unlock him as a playable character. Well, fear not! In this tutorial, we’ll take you through the steps required to add the clown prince of crime to your roster.

Firstly, it’s important to note that unlocking Joker isn’t as straightforward as simply completing the campaign mode. Instead, there are a few specific tasks that need to be completed in order to unlock this elusive character.

Step 1: Complete the Story Mode
The first step towards unlocking Joker is completing story mode in its entirety. This means finishing all 15 levels of both hero and villain campaigns. While this may seem like a daunting task, it’s essential for unlocking many of the game’s characters and features.

Pro tip: If you’re struggling with any particular level, try replaying it with different characters or utilizing their unique abilities to overcome obstacles.

Step 2: Collect Minikits
Once you’ve completed story mode, it’s time to start collecting minikits. These small collectibles are hidden throughout each level and can be found by solving puzzles or destroying certain objects. To unlock Joker, you’ll need to collect all 10 minikits in levels 1-5 and 6-10 of both hero and villain campaigns.

Pro tip: Use characters with unique abilities like Batman’s grapple hook or Robin’s acrobatics to reach otherwise inaccessible areas.

Step 3: Build Joker’s Helicopter
After collecting all 20 minikits across levels 1-10, head back to the Batcave and access the minikit room. Here you’ll find instructions for building Joker’s helicopter. Follow these instructions carefully and once complete, exit the Batcave and head to the Gotham City hub area.

Pro tip: If you’re having trouble finding the minikit room in the Batcave, look for a door with a minikit symbol above it.

Step 4: Find the Joker’s Helicopter Icon
Once you’re in Gotham City, look for the Joker’s helicopter icon on your map. It should be located near Ace Chemicals.

Head to this location and approach the helicopter. You’ll be prompted to switch to Joker, at which point he’ll become a playable character.

And that’s it! With these four steps completed, you’ll have successfully unlocked Joker as a playable character in Lego Batman on PS3.


While unlocking Joker may require some extra effort, it’s well worth it for fans of the character. Plus, completing these tasks will also unlock other characters and features that make playing through Lego Batman even more enjoyable. So grab your controller and get ready to wreak havoc on Gotham City as one of DC Comics’ most iconic villains!
