The irony of this relationship is that though they frustrate each other's efforts, they ultimately need each other to give those efforts meaning. A city of purse snatchings and muggings doesn't need a Batman, just a semi-competent police force. Similarly, a Joker who rails against weak ideals and flimsy morals lacks a substrate to bring significance to his acts. It is only when these two actors clash that they can create something greater than the sum of its parts. A sharp knife needs a strong whetstone.
