"Mad? Me? Oh, very well then."
―Mad Hatter's soundbite in LEGO Batman 2

Mad Hatter, or Jervis Tetch, is a super-villain and enemy of Batman. He often works as a thief, obsessed with stealing hats to finish his collection of head-wear. He is known for his mind-control technology.

Description

Mad Hatter has a large, green top-hat with a darker green band going around the funnel. A yellow tag sticks up from under the band. In the first LEGO Batman game it reads 10/6, but this detail was removed for LEGO Batman 2. He has, long, slanted, light orange-brown eyebrows and buck teeth. He wears a green coat which opens more as the torso goes downwards, first revealing the top of a white, button-up shirt, then a large, red-bow tie, and finally a vest checkered with two different shades of purple. He has yellow gloves and orange pants.

On the Nintendo DS version of LEGO Batman: The Videogame, the Mad Hatter has short legs (which shows his pants at the bottom of his torso), a blue band around his hat rather than dark green, no gloves, and had a different face.

In LEGO Batman: The Videogame, the Mad Hatter is a boss and a playable character. He carries a small handgun, can double jump (due to a propeller built into his hat), and use mind control on certain targets or to open certain doors. He is unlockable for purchase after the level, The Joker's Home Turf.

He also has two unlockable playable vehicles, Mad Hatter's Steamboat and Mad Hatter's Glider. Other than roam around in their respective environments, water and sky, and in the glider's case, shoot lasers, they have no abilities.

On the Nintendo DS version, he is able to go through chutes and drop bombs to destroy silver objects.

In LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, both of these abilities are removed. He now uses just a melee attack and can jump no higher than Batman.

Background

Jervis Tetch became obsessed with the lunacy of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel, Through the Looking Glass, especially the chapter A Mad Tea Party, to the point where he believed himself to be a reincarnation of a character known as The Mad Hatter. Jervis Tetch became a thief known as Mad Hatter to finish his collection of headgear. He is also known for his hypnotizing and kidnapping schemes.

In the Video Games

In the video game's story, the Mad Hatter was a part of the Joker's group, which also consisted of Killer Moth, the Scarecrow, and Harley Quinn. Mad Hatter traveled to the factory where The Red Hood transformed into The Joker to retrieve special chemicals for The Joker. While investigating, Batman and Robin came across and defeated The Mad Hatter. He was sent back to Arkham Asylum, along with Scarecrow, Killer Moth, Harley Quinn and the Joker.

On the console versions of LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, Mad Hatter is a playable character. Mad Hatter appears outside of the Gotham Theatre after Asylum breakout and can be purchased after defeating upon him for 100,000 studs. He doesn't have special abilities.

On the portable version, The Mad Hatter appears as a boss in the level Arkham Asylum. His minikit can be found on the same level by using a super-strong aquatic character such as Aquaman or Killer Croc to break the door of an underwater cell containing it. He costs 60,000 studs.

In LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, Mad Hatter, along with Deadshot and Deathstroke, can be unlocked during free play, in the mission "Big Trouble in Little Gotham".

Notes

  • He, Killer Moth and Hush were the only minifigures from LEGO Batman to have the same design in LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham.

  • He is one of the few characters to have been in all three LEGO Batman games, but not yet made into a physical minifigure (Along with Hush).
  • In The LEGO Batman Movie, even though he does not appear in the film, his hypnotizing hat is spotted in the Batcave.
    • Also The Penguin's top hat has a similar model to the Mad Hatter's hat and was an exclusive LEGO top hat piece.
  • His outfit resembles his comic book appearance with the green coat, red bow tie and checkered vest, but the only difference are the pants were green in comics but orange in the video games.
  • In the Latin American dub of Gotham, he was voiced by the late Luis Alfonso Mendoza, who also voiced Barney Rubble in The Flintstones Kids, Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters 2 and The Real Ghostbusters, Leonardo in the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles show, the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3, and Metallo in The CW's Supergirl.
