(Card Playing) An extra card usually included in a deck of playing cards, having the same design as the others on the back, but on the face having a picture of a jester. It is not included in the deck used in most games, but in certain games may be included and then takes on a special value, such as the highest-valued card, or a wild card.

Hence: Any fact or condition which is unknown or not apparent, which reverses an apparently advantageous position; a kicker.

The Joker Here we are, the perfect pair... Beauty and the Beast. Mind you, if anybody calls you beast, I'll rip their lungs out.
