  • Grumpy - One of the Joker's thugs, played by Danny Goldring. When the robbery's almost finished, he pulls a gun on Bozo (who is actually the Joker in disguise) expecting a double-cross.

  • Janet Surillo - Portrayed by Nydia Rodriguez Terracina. A judge presiding over Harvey Dent's indictments. After a threat is made on her life, she is approached by two cops who hand her an envelope stating where she is supposed to go to stay safe. The envelope has been tampered with, however, and Surillo opens it as she starts her car. The letter inside just says the word 'Up' and then the car suddenly explodes.
