Marcus "Needles" Kane, also referred to as Sweet Tooth, is a playable character and the unofficial mascot of the Twisted Metal video game series. He appeared in the 62nd DEATH BATTLE!, Joker VS Sweet Tooth, where he fought against The Joker from DC Comics. He was voiced by Gianni Matragrano.


Though his backstory and motivation has varied from various games in the Twisted Metal series, one thing has remained consistent. Marcus "Needles" Kane was a psychotic serial killer who loved what he did: kill people while dressed as a clown with a machete or his iconic combat ice cream truck, the "Sweet Tooth" while competing in various Twisted Metal tournaments to get one wish from Calypso.
