It's a sort of random action that makes me a better player. You, the black king representing order, and I the white king-- well, I'm Anarky!

Anarky is the primary antagonist in Beware The Batman. He debuted in the episode: Tests.


Nothing is currently known about Anarky's true identity or past. He appears to be a dark mirror image of Batman and looks upon the dark knight as his perfect foil and opponent in the game he is playing. Anarky, true to his name, believes that it is his duty to bring about absolute freedom to the world through complete anarchy and chaos as he views order and peace as boring and predictable. Apparently he has been searching for an adequate opponent for a very long time. He appears to be just as skilled in combat as Batman and nearly his match in mental prowess as well. Where he and the Bat differ is their policies on innocent casualties. Batman has sworn never to take a life, whereas Anarky looks upon regular people as mere pawns in his all encompassing game. He wears all white as he views himself as the White King like on a chess board with Batman as the corresponding Black King.


Anarky wears an completely white costume with a hood and cape. His utility belt is also white and has cylinders, much like the batbelt in past incarnations. His eyes are completely white like Batman's, but more widely open. His outfit bears the Anarchy symbol on the chest. He wears a utility belt similar to Batman which stores various weapons and items including flash-bang like bombs and an extendable baton.

In the first issue of the Beware The Batman comic series, Anarky disguised himself as Simon Stagg's home suecurity product manager, going by the name "Robert Catesby". While in disguise, he had short spikey blonde hair and brown eyes, wearing a grey suit and red shirt with a purple bowtie, as well as red sunglasses. Weather or not this is what Anarky really looks like, or if it was all faked is unknown, though the later is more plausible.

  • In the comics, there have been three versions of Anarky.  The first Anarky was created in 1989 as Lonnie Machin, a genius-level teenager and minor antagonist of Batman. A stand-in for the views of the author, Alan Grant, Lonnie was an anarchist who wished to improve the world by transforming society by overthrowing governments. The second Anarky was an even younger teenager, obsessed with war and combat, named Ulysses Hadrian Armstrong (formerly known as The General). In 2008, Fabian Niecieza wrote a storyline that involved the userpation of Lonnie Machin's role as Anarky and its theft by Armstrong. Injured in his fight with Ulysses, Lonnie is rescued by  Batman's sidekick, Tim Drake (Robin III) and the two become partners against Ulysses, with Lonnie striving to reclaim the mantle of Anarky. This storyline ended without conclusion in 2011 when the comic book it was part of, "Red Robin", was cancelled. The third version of Anarky is a rebooted version who's identity has not been revealed, and about whom little is known except that he is has been portrayed as an african-american teenagner.
  • He is the villain that is in complete opposition to Batman, from the color of their outfits to what they are fighting for.

  • He has knowledge of the League of Assassins, even knowing who their real leader is.
  • He might have every knowledge about every supervillains in Gotham City. Because he's known about the League of Assassins.
  • SPOILER:In the very end of the last episode, there are chess pieces of villains laying on a table, and Anarky was in front of a chess board with figures of Batman and Katana surrounding him. He then says, "Bravo Batman, check mate. Shall we play again?" This phrase symbolizes that he pulled the strings for the whole series.
    • He maybe the one who put names of Simon Stagg, Michael Holt and Bruce Wayne on the list of the land deal of Keystone Wetland.
    • He maybe the one who responsible for Killer Croc's mutation.
    • It is possible that he had met Key before.
    • He is the one who called Deathstroke.
    • He might secretly help Magpie find out who she once is.
  • Every villains that have anything to do with him will become the main antagonist for a while. (Like when he's 'playing a game' with the League of Assassins and supporting Harvey Dent and Deathstroke  to kill Batman.)
  • He looks far more insane and more malevolent than in the original comics.
  • He didn't carry a yellow staff with him like in the original comics.
