** Joker again shows this with the most literal meaning of "standards" in a Franchise/{{Batman}}[=/=]ComicBook/SpiderMan crossover where he teamed-up with ComicBook/{{Carnage}}. The two worked fine until it was time to actually kill their intended targets. Joker wanted to do things in his usual "artistic"/"funny" way and was annoyed and slightly [[{{Squick}} disgusted]] at Carnage's plan to just brutally eviscerate them, leading to an argument that quickly escalated. Carnage for his part is bored by Joker's schemes and see him ruining the fun and simplicity of murder.
* In the first crossover between Spider-Man and Superman, Lex Luthor and Doctor Octopus join forces to create a worldwide hurricane, to blackmail the planet for ten billion dollars. Eventually, however, Luthor reveals that no matter whether they get paid or not, he's going to let the storm run rampant and wipe out humanity to pay them back for laughing at him. [[EvilVersusOblivion This is too much for Doc Ock]], and he smashes the machine generating the hurricane.

** She wound up on the wrong end of this with ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}} after she sold out her own team to him and was shot in the gut for her troubles, with Wilson making a point of noting just how much traitors disgusted him.

* ComicBook/TheJoker himself has run into problems thanks to this trope. Whenever a new Society of Super Villains comes together, The Joker is often excluded. Partly because he is not much of a team player and considered far too "unprofessional", and partly because all the other villains are ''flat fucking terrified'' of him. Summed up best by this quote from ''ComicBook/UnderworldUnleashed'':

* Baron Konig in ''ComicBook/{{Hellboy}}'' miniseries ''B.P.R.D.: 1947'' is a cruel VampireMonarch that regards humans as cattle, yet he completely loathes ThoseWackyNazis for betraying another vampire lord that tried to form an alliance with Hitler, who was so creeped out by him that he ordered his execution. Granted, Konig didn't like his kinsman very much and agreed he got what was coming for even considering making a deal with his "inferiors", but what truly appalled him was the Nazis performing experiments on said vampire's brides to create an weapon for themselves.

** One thing that could explain this is that the Joker is [[OrderVsChaos in some ways]] the opposite of the Nazis. [[ChaoticEvil He's very random in his killing, does anything he can to get a laugh, and is just generally insane]]. The Nazis are [[LawfulEvil a dead serious organization which looks down their noses on those with mental illnesses and who have a very systematic and bureaucratic method of killing]] [[MurderArsonAndJaywalking with no sense of humor]].
