semiotics is a study that examines the signs and meanings contained therein. These scien- ti c developments are not only examines the  symbols contained in any society, but rather touch- ing aspects of  construction and the cultural mindset behind it. This study tried to examine the semiotic aspects contained in the  lm The Dark Knight and speci cally examined an antagonist character of the Joker character. The Dark Knight is a genre  lm with action and antagonistic character is the Joker. In this study, the Joker is considered as a symbol that represents a crime, and the symbol is shown through the character of the Joker. By using a semiotic analysis of Ro- land Barthes in which there are aspects of the  denotations and connotations that would result in the myth, this study  intends to  nd out how the Joker character in this  lm is focused. The result is shown as the villain Joker through violent behavior, against the law and create chaos in the city of Gotham. Not only that, the Joker is a villain that is different from criminals in general, where he committed the crime  instead of aiming for the money but only to an existence as a true villain. This is demonstrated through various scenes in the  lm.
