* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans Regime]]. [[KnightTemplar Injustice!Superman and his supporters]], [[FallenHero who, while villainous]], [[VillainHasAPoint have a point]]. Hypocrisy of Batman, his constant failures, ending in many deaths, and growing Superman's evil. The whole story is very tragic, and [[NightmareFuel much]] [[TearJerker more]] will happen, before things will get better in the game.
* The whole prequel series so far. They start with Superman about to have a kid with Lois, Batman and Superman being buddies, Batman being told Superman and Lois want him to be the godfather of their child in a string of HeartwarmingMoments...[[YankTheDogsChain and then]] [[spoiler:Jimmy Olsen]] is murdered by The Joker, Joker manipulates Superman into killing [[spoiler:Lois Lane and their unborn child]] and then [[spoiler:Joker [[NukeEm nukes]] Metropolis.]] How can one not cry over that?
** Superman is effected by Kryptonite-induced Fear Toxin, [[spoiler: which makes him envision Lois as Doomsday. He grapples her, and flies her out into the upper atmosphere whilst Batman ''desperately'' tries to get through to him. The moment he does manage to tell Superman that he's with Lois and not Doomsday, Superman has worn off the effects of the Toxin, whilst ''in space'' and with tears in his eyes, views Lois's dead body floating away from him. And Joker rigged a nuclear bomb to her heartbeat, which detonates and blows up Metropolis. What really sells it, is when Superman ''hears the heartbeat of Lois and their unborn child stop'' just as the Toxin wears off. The narration that accompanies it is ''heartbreaking'']].
--> [[spoiler:And then two heartbeats coming from one person--stop beating]].
** And just to drive the point home: [[spoiler:After all the misery, all the deaths...''the Joker [[TheBadGuyWins won]]''. [[KarmaHoudini And he died knowing this.]]]]

** And then you learn the reason behind Jor-El's cryptic comments about "the outsiders" abandoning them: the Guardians '''[[NeglectfulPrecursors left their planet to die]].''' Made even worse in ''[[VideoGame/Injustice2 the sequel]] when you realise they left them at the mercy of '''ComicBook/{{Brainiac}}'''.

* Regime!Superman at the end. He's lost everything - His wife, His child, His friends, His morality, and is now imprisoned. And, judging by his expression at the end of game, [[{{Revenge}} who knows what terrible thoughts are running though his head now]]?

* Year Five #21: Golden Glider and Mirror Master are mourning the the Rogues killed by Bizarro. Even [[AntagonistInMourning the Flash shows up to pay his respects to them]]. The eulogy that Mirror Master makes to his fallen teammates is pretty depressing:

* Main!Superman's reaction to meeting his evil counterpart for the first time. While Main!Green Lantern and Main!Wonder Woman both expressed disgust and outrage at the behavior of their Regime counterparts, Superman's reaction is just...disappointment. He doesn't get particularly angry or shocked. He just looks pitiably at Regime!Superman, probably seeing someone who ultimately failed to live up to the ideals that Main!Superman always aspires to.

* Regime!Superman, in a chat with Lex Luthor (who, in THIS universe, is his best friend [[spoiler:or, rather, posing as one to act as the good guys' double agent]]), voices the hope that there might be another Lois along with these other duplicates. Luthor, [[spoiler:in a sincere manner that would have no benefit to his ulterior motives]], sadly assures Superman that, to the former hero, "there was only ONE Lois".

Between seeing millions die and suffer, people [[BrokenPedestal losing faith in their heroes]], and ''the'' '''''[[{{Superman}} Man of Steel]]''''' reduced to a maniacal dictator, the short answer is the entire game. To wit:
