Terence was one of the Joker's seven leading Goons. Terence had prematurely gray hair, a stocky build, and was extremely similar in appearance to the Overweight Joker Goon. Terence's hair color and hat detail were the only ways that told them both apart.
Terence was first seen when Napier killed Antoine Rotelli. Terence burst into the room with the Tall Joker Goon, the Gymnast Joker Goon and the Fedora Joker Goon and were all armed with tommy guns. After the Joker Goons threatened the Gotham City Crimelords, they ushered them out of the building.
Terence was seen as a mime during the Joker's attack on Vinnie Ricorso. His makeup included long, thin dark streaks down the eyes and a pair of very small, pouting red lips. Terence appeared on the sidewalk just down the street from Gotham City Hall and performed various maneuvers such as "the invisible box" and "pulling on an imaginary rope" while a family of tourists gawked and pointed at him from a short distance away. Terence's job was apparently to distract any onlookers while Bob (who stood nearby and was half-hidden behind the corner of a building) leaned out to take photographs of Gotham Globe News Reporters. Terence was successful, as Bob obtained excellent photos of both Alexander Knox and Vicki Vale.
Terence was also with the rest of the Joker Goons at the Flugelheim Museum, especially when he repainted the head of a statue that reproduced the likeness of the Joker; he then loaned his brush to the Joker so that his boss could write "Joker was here!" on one of the wall paintings.
Terence was seated on the cake float during Gotham City's 200th Anniversary Parade. After he witnessed the Batwing pull Joker's Smylex Balloons into the atmosphere, he threw his ball cap down and looked upward in both shock and anger.
Terence later rode in the Joker's Helicopter in an attempt to rescue Joker from the top of Gotham Cathedral. Sporting a different bright purple Joker ball cap, Terence operated a rope ladder and continually beckoned his boss: "Come on!"
Behind the Scenes
- Terence was one of three named Joker Goons in the film, the other two were Bob and Lawrence. Terence and Lawrence were only called by name at the Flugelheim Museum and both names rhymed. However, Terence was a reference to Terry Plummer's actual name by Jack Nicholson.
- Terence was often mistakenly believed to be the Overweight Joker Goon, who was portrayed by Mac McDonald, who also wore a black ball cap.
