By now, there’s a Guinness World Record for just about any random accomplishment you can think of, including “most functional gadgets on a cos-play suit” which is currently held by Ireland’s Julian Checkley who managed to cram 23 different contraptions into his impressive Batsuit.

His costume isn’t quite as impressive as Batman’s actual getup, but the caped crusader also benefits from technologies that only exist in comic books, or with the help of Hollywood special effects. Everything Checkley has included on his Batsuit actually works, and he’s done a good job at making it all blend in to the rest of his costume. Here’s the full list of gadgets that earned him the Guinness World Record:


  1. Fireball shooter
  2. Gauntlet video screens
  3. Bat tracking beacon
  4. Batsignal projector
  5. Folding batarang
  6. Grapnel gun
  7. Cowl respirator
  8. Pneumatic tranquilizer gun
  9. Ultrasonic anti-dog device.
  10. Bat shurikens
  11. UV lamp
  12. Ball bearing grenades
  13. Gauntlet flashlight
  14. Medical kit
  15. Battery pack
  16. Laser designator
  17. Bat-cam
  18. Strobe stun gun
  19. Gas dispenser
  20. Smoke bombs
  21. Bat flask
  22. Concealed laryngeal microphone
  23. Two-way radio

We can’t help but raise an eyebrow over the ‘Bat flask’ being recognized as an official Bat-gadget, but even the Dark Knight must need the occasional hit of liquid courage to keep battling supervillains.
