The LEGO Batman Movie is now out in theaters, bringing the Batman mythos and franchise lore to the LEGO Universe. As we say in our official review, one of the greatest joys of LEGO Batman is the deep knowledge of the character's history that the filmmakers clearly have - and that is clearly evident from the sheer amount of Batman villains they adapted for the film.
Some of them are all too recognizable, but some of them even hardcore Batman may not recognize, as they were pulled from pretty old, obscure, and outdated Batman comics. You may not have enough time to spot them all while the movie playing, but for your convenience we've gathered them together. Here is Every Batman Villain in The LEGO Batman Movie.

One of the biggest headlines going into The LEGO Batman Movie's promotional campaign was that late night host Conan O'Brien was taking on this voice role.
The League's wild man Jason Mantzoukas voices the master of fear - though he's more funny than scary in the film.
This one was a lot of fun for fans, as Batman (1989) star Billy Dee Williams finally got take his role as Harvey Dent all the way into Two-Face territory.
Batman's whacked-out head shrink foe pops up for a quick second in the film. Extra points for nailing the beard.
Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns gets a special shoutout via this savage villain's appearance.
...Getting into the more obscure villains, Crazy Quilt is a villain who's had multiple incarnations stretching back to the 1940s. All of them were pretty silly - including this one, with a helmet that uses colored light hypnosis and shoots laser beams.
Mime is one of those ideas that could only come from the cocaine '80s: a girl whose parents died in a fireworks factory starts a mime company - only to turn criminal when the mime company goes bankrupt (shocker).
Polka Dot Man
Dude is from the zany '60s era, and you can tell because his outfit has spots he can peel off and use in any number of stupid ways.
An old schoolmate of Bruce Wayne who (for some dumb reason) turns to a life of crime wearing and eraser-themed costume.
Apparently if you repair someone's spine with an Orca whale spine, they become a whale-themed supervillain.
There have been two DC characters to take on this mantle. You'd be hard-pressed to remember either of them.
This guy was a silly creation of the '60s Batman TV show - and yet, they still brought him into the comic book universe, eventually. Now, he's a part of the movies, too. Good for him. Still a dumb villain.
There have been some good versions of Clock King - this movie clearly wanted the sillier version to play with.
Like Clock King, Calendar Man has been retconned into a much better Batman villain than...this (see: The Long Halloween).
