When it comes to Halloween costumes in 2015, the typical vampire or clown costume just won’t do.

Superheroes, who dominate movies and TV, remain popular, but a villain is the most sought-out costume of all, according to Google Trends’ Frightgeist.

The top costume search is “Suicide Squad” character Harley Quinn, according to the site, which measures Google queries locally and nationally.

The character, played by Margot Robbie in the upcoming film, has been popular for decades at fan conventions (her first appearance was on “Batman: The Animated Series” in 1992, before breaking into comics).

Robbie’s memorable performance in the trailer for the movie seems to have made Harley — the on-and-off girlfriend of The Joker — surge to the top.

The Joker also ranks in the top 10 costumes, along with his foe Batman, Wonder Woman and the generic term “superhero.”

As much as people are anticipating “Suicide Squad,” the excitement around “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is off the charts. It’s no wonder that “Star Wars” is the No. 2 search, hot on Harley’s heels.

The minions from “Despicable Me” are big with kids, and the old standbys pirates and witches also made the top 10.

Top Google Trends’ Frightgeist national searches:

1. Harley Quinn (Shown Above in case you never heard of her)

2. Star Wars

3. Superhero

4. Pirate

5. Batman

6. Minnie Mouse

7. Witch

8. Minions

9. Joker

10. Wonder Woman
