Dr. Jonathan Crane had been bullied as a child for his bookish nature and scrawny figure. He became obsessed with fear and began to study it, eventually becoming a psychology professor in that field. He taught at Gotham University, but was fired for unethical experimenting. Crane then made career out of crime and became known as the Scarecrow. Not only does is he well-versed in fear, but the Scarecrow uses it in his specialized toxins to bring out victims' nightmares. He appears in 7786 The Batcopter: The Chase for Scarecrow, 7785 Arkham Asylum and Lego Batman: The Video Game. In the game, he has a very limited use of fear gas, as well as some mind-controlling abilities. He also has a biplane that fires fear gas torpedoes. He is a playable character in villain and free play mode.
