In Batman's years of crime fighting, one key piece of advice has been to expect the unexpected. That is best exemplified in seemingly innocent-looking toys employed by various villains to conceal deadly weapons. While the Joker is best known for this trick with his water flower, joy buzzer, and exploding marbles to name a few, many others have incorporated toys in their aresenal. Ted Dymer used remote control cars rigged with explosives to reinact a Gray Ghost episode and terrorize Gotham City. The Riddler used his puzzle technology to restrain his opponents and further prove his intellectual superiority. Eventually, the Riddler tried to reform and partnered with Wacko Toys Corporation to sell a new line of toys based on his weapons.

Outside of Gotham City, another notable villain with novelty weapons is Toyman. His hyper ball is a dodge ball that can accelerate to high speeds and dent even steel. He also figured out how to coat bubbles with knockout gas and alternatively, his Princess Nighty-Night doll can also render its victim unconscious. One of his more dangerous creations was Dopey Doh, a lethal biogenic organism that won't stop growing until it asphyxiates its victim.
