Oswald Cobblepot aka Penguin is a DC Comics villain and enemy of the Batman.



Often wearing a top hat and carrying an umbrella, the Penguin is a very intelligent villain.


Portrayed by Robin Lord Taylor, the Penguin is a low level criminal in the employ of Fish Mooney when the series begins. He has no loyalty for Fish, or any of his criminal associate, and is often prepared to betray those closest to him for personal gain. He has a close relationship with his mother, who constantly told him he would be a great man.

Other Adaptions


In the Gotham fandom, Oswald is most commonly paired with his canonical love interest Ed Nygma (The Riddler). This is the most popular ship in the Gotham fandom but it also appears in other Batman fandoms, where it is less common.

Other pairings including Oswald in Gotham works include Oswald Cobblepot/Jim Gordon, Oswald Cobblepot/Victor Zsasz and Oswald Cobblepot/Victor Fries
