** The Riddler is much more AxCrazy and bloodthirsty than his comic book counterpart, who was more interested in puzzles than killing people.

** In most continuities, while Comicbook/PoisonIvy is a misanthropic villain, she has a soft spot for Harley Quinn, and is sometimes even romantically linked to her. In ''Injustice 2'', she acts openly hostile to Harley in some of their battle intros, (for example, she threatens to break her bones after driving her to tears), and during the Story Mode, [[spoiler: she uses her pheromones to send Harley into shock, which almost kills her.]]

** While Kitana was on the heroes' side in the original timeline after her HighHeelFaceTurn, the new timeline adds more CharacterDevelopment to her, and she is no longer the heroic princess we once knew. [[spoiler:After she was [[ReforgedIntoAMinion revived as a brainwashed undead minion]] for Quan Chi at the end of ''9'', she blames [[FallenHero Raiden]] for sealing her fate as a revenant. In ''MKX'', Kitana begins to [[EvilFeelsGood assert her current status as an evil revenant, as being one allows her to be the perpetrator]], and she and Liu Kang willfully become the CoDragons to Quan Chi and Shinnok. And after Shinnok's downfall at the end of ''MKX'', [[DragonAscendant she and Liu Kang]] willfully assert themselves as [[HellHasNewManagement the Netherrealm's co-rulers]], [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen with her becoming its revenant empress]]. And her ''MKX'' ending reveals that she is shown a vision of the original timeline by the mysterious female entity that possessed Jade in her ''[=MK9=]'' Arcade Ladder ending. In it, Kitana miraculously managed to survive Armageddon and defeat Shao Kahn, the victor of the conflict who had absorbed the god-like power held within Blaze, becoming Edenia's next [[TheHighQueen queen]] in the process. Learning of what could have been, Kitana is understandably dismayed by the revelation and her current predicament, and blamed Raiden for the damage he caused by his TimeyWimeyBall.]]

Though he starts out as Raiden's protege in the new timeline, [[spoiler:a series of disputes between mentor and protege slowly strain that relationship, culminating with Raiden accidentally killing him at the end of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', [[WhatTheHellHero but not before he blames Raiden for for the screw-ups the thunder god made]]. In ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX'', like Kitana, Liu Kang's [[ReforgedIntoAMinion soul was used by Quan Chi to create an "evil" revenant out of him]], and he's not displeased with this arrangement given the hatred he now has for his ex-mentor, something which increased over the 25-year gap.

** While Jack Ryder could be a jackass, it was usally as part of a feint for his actions as ComicBook/TheCreeper. Here, he's a legitimately self-serving and egoistical asshole.

** ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins''[='=] "Initiation" DLC saw Kirigi from as a mild example, making him a TrueNeutral {{Jerkass}} at worst, whereas his comics counterpart was one of the most pacifistic mentors Batman ever had (Denny O'Neil's ''ComicBook/{{Knightfall}}'' novelization mentions he stopped training Bruce because Bruce refused to forsake violence forever).
