* AGodAmI: The team briefly encountered a dapper entity called "Red Jack" that insisted it was also God and created the universe. Since it was clearly insane almost nothing it said could be taken at face value, though, except for the fact that it needed pain to live.

* TheArtiact: Rita Farr and Beast Boy were dressing in the red-and-white costumes from their ''Doom Patrol Volume #1'' days for decades after the rest of the team retired them. It's all the more jarring since the loss of the outfits' "team uniform" status highlights how little relevance it has to either character as an individual. At least Beast Boy had one version featuring a paw print design.

** Played straight with Crazy Jane and Dorothy Spinner, with the former suffering sexual abuse so bad her mind fractured into sixty plus split personalities, and the latter was cruelly bullied because of her appearance and mentally traumatized by her first period.

** Played straight with Crazy Jane and Dorothy Spinner, with the former suffering sexual abuse so bad her mind fractured into sixty plus split personalities, personalities,[[note]]She's based on artist Truddi Chase, author of ''Literature/WhenRabbitHowls'', who really was sexually abused from an early age and had ''92'' selves. She claimed to have some psychic ability.[[/note]] and the latter was cruelly bullied because of her appearance and mentally traumatized by her first period.



* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The "Empire of Chairs" issue included imagery of Crazy Jane being ambushed by the horrific Keysmiths, creatures with keys sticking out of their blank faces, for the sake of "unlocking" her. With the already phallic imagery of the keys protruding from their faces and the scenes of a large group of Keysmiths surrounding Jane while they (it is said) insert their keys into her, the whole thing comes across as if Jane is being gang raped.

Given Jane's origin story (similar to the real-life Truddi Chase) this is nightmarish.



** A species of RetCon yet to be assigned taxonomy, inverting RememberTheNewGuy and related to MultipleChoicePast, in which Rachel Pollack retcons Crazy Jane out of existence through the introduction of a character called "The False Memory", who displays Crazy-Jane-like powers plus the ability to create false memories, and who instructs the protagonists to "remember me in the Doom Patrol all these years". The reference to "false memory syndrome" appears to [[WriterOnBoard express Pollack's disgust]] with Jane's DarkAndTroubledPast. This was such a widely decried dick move that Pollack denied that this was her intent. This move was so unpopular that it is apparently CanonDiscontinuity nowadays, or rather DC has only limited it to Vertigo while Morrison's stuff is still in main DCU continuity. Keith Giffen certainly reintroduced Jane into the book, along with Danny the Street (now [[spoiler: Danny the Bungalow]]).
