Your father locked my mum in Arkham Asylum... to steal our fortune! He drove my own dad to suicide! The Waynes caused the ruin of my entire bloody family.
~ Oswald to Bruce Wayne

Oswald Chesterfield Cobblepot, also known as The Penguin, is one of the two secondary antagonists (alongside Two-Face) of Season One of the 2016 video game Batman: The Telltale Series, and a mentioned antagonist in its 2017 sequel Season Two: The Enemy Within.


Episode One: Realm of Shadows

Oswald Cobblepot was first seen at Wayne Manor for Harvey Dent's fundraiser hosted by his childhood friend Bruce Wayne. Cobblepot passed a slip to Alfred Pennyworth to give to Bruce to meet him at Cobblepot Park. Out of respect for his old friend, Bruce decided to meet Cobblepot.

Cobblepot arrived in the park as two thugs attempted to mug Bruce, together, Cobblepot and Bruce drove the thugs out of the park.

Cobblepot then spoke to Bruce for the first time in two decades. After complaining about the sate of the park, the two spoke about the lose of their respective parents and the loss of the Cobblepot fortune. Before leaving, Cobblepot spoke of a revolution in Gotham and subtly warned Bruce to know which side he is on when it starts.

Episode Two: Children of Arkham

By poisoning GCPD officer Renee Montoya with the drug stolen from the port, Cobblepot forces her to kill crime boss Carmine Falcone who is being held at the GCPD precinct. Bruce, who is present as well, realises that Montoya is not acting on her own. He finds injection marks on her shoulder and she tells him that she was attacked by someone. After listening to her testimony, Bruce realises that the attacker must have been Cobblepot and tracks him down by triangulating his cellphone.

He finds out that Cobblepot is located at Falcone's Skyline Club, which is now empty. There, he finds Cobblepot and some of his men looting the tower. He also has one of Falcone's men as a hostage. Batman breaks into the office, where he confronts Cobblepot and his men. Cobblepot freely admits that he is responsible for the death of Falcone. Cobblepot claims that Falcone deserves to die and that vermin like Falcone has to be stomped out. He also claims that the rest of the corrupt people, like Bruce Wayne and Mayor Hill, have to be "cut out" in order for the people to be able to breathe. Cobblepot claims that he and his men have big plans for Gotham. He is interrupted by a henchman who tells him that his men located Selina Kyle. When Batman asks what he plans do do with her, Cobblepot claims that they had a deal with her and that she did not make good on her part and will thus be punished accordingly. He then leaves the room with most of his men, leaving it to Batman to fight Blockbuster.


Penguin with Vicky Vale as a hostage

To protect Selina, Bruce meets up with her and warns her. Although she does not recognize the name Oswald Cobblepot, she does recognize the name Penguin and is clearly afraid. She reveals that Penguin is far more dangerous than Bruce thinks. They are interrupted by some of Penguin's henchmen who arrive at the bar, planning to kill or hurt Selina. They are fended off and defeated by combined efforts of Bruce and Selina. From one of the henchmen's cellphones, Bruce realises that Mayor Hamilton Hill seems to be working with Penguin and that he will likely take a shot at Bruce next.

Penguin attacks the mayoral debate between Harvey Dent and Hill at Monarch Theatre. After silently killing the police officers behind the stage, Penguin appears on the stage and shoots the moderator in the head. He then chooses a person from the hostages he took backstage, reporter Vicky Vale, and forces her to act as the new moderator. He then forces the people in the audience to continue the debate as if nothing has happened. Dent also pleads with Penguin to release the hostages if Dent and Hill play along, and Penguin claims that he will consider it. When the debate continues, Penguin forces the two contenders to tell the truth, claiming that it will hurt but it will hurt more if they lie. After a moment, Penguin grabs the camera to play a tape containing a message of "his sponsor". The tape contains video footage of a masked man who tells the citizens of Gotham not to be afraid, as the Children of Arkham have come to cleanse the city of corruption. Batman realises that there is a higher power behind Penguin.


Penguin kills Mayor Hill

On stage, Penguin forces Vicky to inject both Dent and Hill with the drug in order to get real answers from them. Under the influence of the drug, Hill shows the city his true face by insulting the poor, claiming that they should all be killed. Dent however, while acknowledging the city's flaws, claims that there is still hope. Penguin then asks about the city's elite, referring to Bruce Wayne and showing video footage in which Bruce's father Thomas declares Penguin's mother insane when she did not sell him her family's land, in order to get the land legally. The room is then stormed by the GCPD and while the Children's soldiers fight the policemen, Batman jumps on the stage to confront Penguin. Vicky frees herself from Penguin's grasp and runs of the stage, protected by Batman who shields her from Penguin's bullets. He then hurls a Batarang towards Penguin's shoulder. Penguin collapses on stage but is saved when Batman is engaged by Blockbuster instead. While Batman fights Blockbuster, Penguin gets back up and aims his gun at Mayor Hill, who pleads for his life and vows to make amends. Under the pressure, Hill reveals that he was behind the murder of Thomas Wayne but Penguin claims that this won't bring back his mother. He tries to kill Hill but is attacked by Harvey Dent. However, he throws Dent to the ground and tells him to wait his turn, then shoots Hill in the head and torso multiple times, killing him instantly.

Cornered by Batman and Catwoman, Penguin then takes Harvey hostage. He then fires wildly at the two and throws Harvey to the ground. While Catwoman falls to the ground and is approached by a group of Children of Arkham soldiers, Penguin rips a stagelight of it's stand, planning to crush Harvey with it. The player must choose to either save Harvey or Catwoman. If Catwoman is chosen, Cobblepot burns the left side of Harvey's face with the heat of the stagelight before lifting it up and trying to hit him again but Batman stops Penguin by throwing Batarangs before he can do further damage or kill him. If Harvey is chosen, Batman runs into Penguin knocking him on the ground before he can burn Harvey's face. No matter the choice, Penguin escapes. His mask remains behind.

Episode Three: New World Order

To replace Bruce Wayne who, due to the rumor about his family's involvement with the mob, is forced to step down as CEO of Wayne Enterprises, Cobblepot is invited by the board to become CEO instead. During a press conference where Cobblepot is introduced as CEO, Bruce Wayne is poisoned with a mind-control drug by Vicki Vale, who reveals herself to be the leader of the Children of Arkham known as Lady Arkham, and is forced to publicly attack Oswald, which lands him into Arkham Asylum.
