The Batarang is a bat-shaped throwing weapon used by the Batman and his associates as a non-lethal ranged attack alternative to firearms. Through the years Batman has developed various Batarangs for various purposes, including a veritable arsenal of customized Batarangs that wailed like a siren, emitted smoke, exploded, acted as tracer beacons, amongst others. Batman also developed smaller Batarangs that worked like Japanese shuriken or darts, sharpened to cut into criminals' hands or arms in order to disarm them.
