** For the "Injustice" Universe. [[spoiler:The Regime's rampage through Gotham and Metropolis is put to a stop, and the surviving leaders of the dictatorship are either apprehended or willingly turn themselves in. That being said, hundreds of people have died as a result of the conflict, including two morally decent people (Lex Luthor and Shazam), and the best chance that this Universe had at world peace has been fragmented.]]

Added DiffLines:

* WhiteAndGreyMorality / BlackAndGreyMorality / WhiteAndBlackMorality: Begins as first and slowly transcends the mid to the latter. Sure, Superman and his supporters began as WellIntentionedExtremist faction, who have many right points in their actions, but [[JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope their steadily decline to tyranny]] [[HeWhoFightsMonsters and growing abandonement of morality in their crimefighting]] led them to become real villains. However, [[DesignatedHero Injustice!Batman]] isnt't actually blameless: he refuses to help Superman cope with his emotional trauma, continues to follow his ThouShaltNotKill rule to stupid and hypocritical end, lies and uses more and more unscupulous means to defeat Regime, which always ends in disaster, nearly ending in his despair. But when Main Universe! Justice League appear to help, and Regime's corruption come to its peak, the last trope eventually takes place.

* {{Cliffhanger}}: The end of Year 4. [[spoiler: Izaya managed to convince Olympian gods to leave Earth forever, Superman captured Ares and gives him to Darkseid as a prisoner, and clone of Superboy escaped...]]



* TheCorrupter: Sinestro, even more than the Joker. The Joker managed to turn Superman into a KnightTemplar, and by proxy, most of the Justice League, but Sinestro's influence turned Superman and Hal Jordan into raving maniacs, with terrible results for everyone else.



* CurbStompBattle:
** Superman versus [[spoiler:well, everyone, really. And it goes for both the "normal" and Injustice versions. Injustice Superman curbstomps everyone who opposes him throughout most of the story proper, and when his opposite is summoned to the Injustice universe, he returns the favor. Big time. So much so that after watching the treatment Injustice Sinestro gets, Yellow Lantern [[KnowWhenToFoldEm just hands over his ring without a fight]].]]
** In the prequel comic, there's someone who turns this around on Superman. Who? [[spoiler:''Alfred Pennyworth'']].
** Solomon Grundy stomps Hawkgirl in Year Five.

* DemotedToExtra:
** Brainiac, in a way. Despite being a major villain in the comics, his role in ''Injustice'' is that his robotic head is an interactive object in the "Insurgency" level and can be thrown at opponents by some characters (which would essentially kill him). Also, [[spoiler:Brainiac-5 appears in Ares' character ending.]]
** Hawkgirl in the prequel comic. Despite playing a major role in Years One and Two, she's missing from most of Year Three and is absent from Year Four ''entirely'', except for the annual. Hal even [[LampshadeHanging lampshades]] this when she reappears in Year Five.

* DoomedByCanon: However long the comic tie-in series will continue, due to the Video Game Plot we know that nothing of the resistance will change anything whatsoever. The only question that can be answered is "How many people die during the reign?"



* DramaticIrony: [[spoiler:Clark claims he's nothing like Darkseid in the Year 4, #22 comics after seeing him vaporize someone who tried to tell them their fighting was doing more harm than good. Now, remember what he did to Billy only a year later?]]



* FaceHeelTurn:
** The heroes are called "our greatest threat" in the trailer. They even sport darker designs for their costumes.
** The "New Regime" teaser and information from Blur Studios suggests that [[spoiler:Superman has been pushed into HeWhoFightsMonsters territory due to some terrible tragedy that killed millions.]] And the prequel comic reveals that [[spoiler:the tragedy was the nuclear obliteration of Metropolis, the death of Lois Lane and their ''unborn child''. At his own hands. Thanks to the Joker.]]

Justice League become violent dictators.



* FoeYay: InUniverse, Injustice!Superman actually manages to play this for ''drama'' in the comic by, when Batman shows signs of not liking what he's doing, accusing him of actually, genuinely loving the Joker as the reason for why Batman's holed up not mourning the destruction of Metropolis or helping the other heroes out with Superman's global ceasefire effort.



* ForegoneConclusion:
** Due to the premise of the game, when reading the tie-in comic, the audience knows that not only will Superman succumb to HeWhoFightsMonsters and become a WellIntentionedExtremist but he will also create the [[TakeOverTheWorld New]] [[KnightTemplar Regime]] and other characters will go down the route of FallenHero with Superman. On the flip side, they also know [[spoiler:several members of Batman's Insurgency will die since they're never seen in the game or are stated to have died prior to the start of the game, such as Nightwing, Green Arrow, and Huntress]].
** During the marketing for the game, there was a tournament containing most of the characters in the game. As it was based on public votes, which meant it was a popularity contest, [[spoiler:the final battle was always going to be Batman vs. Superman.]]

* FromBadToWorse: Oh, boy. Metropolis is left in ruins due to a nuclear weapon that Joker detonated, killing millions [[spoiler:(including Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane, as well as the latter's unborn child)]]. Superman [[DespairEventHorizon responds to this by]] becoming an UnscrupulousHero and even [[spoiler:killing Joker]]. After this, he decides that he has the [[OmniscientMoralityLicense ultimate moral authority in the world]] and dismantles a dictatorship in a less-than-legal manner, demanding a ceasefire in the process. When the U.N. [[WhatTheHellHero rightfully calls him out for this]], he apologizes and reveals his secret identity, unintentionally endangering a number of people. He then forges an alliance with Wonder Woman just after ''her'' StartOfDarkness (wounding Ares). He then ruins his relationship with Batman with a MotiveRant about how [[HobbesWasRight people can only be ruled through fear]], and how [[AMillionIsAStatistic killing an evil person is necessary to save thousands]]. Aquaman breaks the ceasefire by attacking whalers, causing much of the Justice League to attack him and fracturing the team when Superman orders them to throw Atlantis into the Sahara Desert. Meanwhile, [[spoiler:Damian Wayne kills Dick Grayson]]. After this, the [[WellIntentionedExtremist New Regime]] forms, with Superman and Wonder Woman taking lead. ''This all happens before the game starts'', and the state of the Injustice Universe gets much worse over the course of the game [[spoiler:before it gets better]].

* GoodAngelBadAngel: Injustice Batman (good angel) and Injustice Wonder Woman (bad angel) are this to Injustice Superman. Wonder Woman eventually wins.

* SavedByCanon: Any Regime members present in the game are all but certain to survive the prequel comic, and the writers don't hesitate to take advantage of that fact. Wonder Woman in particular has taken a tremendous amount of punishment as of Year Four's end.

Heroes who were once friends are pitted against each other, millions of innocent people die in the crossfire, and quite a few costumed characters are killed in brutal, often senseless, ways.

Then, TheJoker reveals that when Lois' heart stops, a nuclear bomb is set to go off... in Metropolis.

[[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh, and]] [[spoiler:Scarecrow]] [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking was killed too.]] If that wasn't enough, [[spoiler:Superman ''up and kills'' Joker]] at the end of the fourth issue.

[[http://abload.de/img/injusticegodsamongus1oay8p.jpg Seriously.]] Despite the fact that, if he's conservative, he probably was elected ''on a conservative platform to begin with.''

* DyingMomentOfAwesome: After [[spoiler:Renee]] overdoses on super-pills, her final minutes before succumbing to a heart attack consist of going toe-to-toe with the Man of Steel himself in an attempt to kill him, including using the ''Washington Monument'' like a baseball bat to knock him through the sky.

* HeelRealization: Invoked with Wonder Woman's killing of [[spoiler:Huntress]], whose SedgwickSpeech makes her question how far the Regime is willing to go, and causes her to caution Superman against becoming a full-blown tyrant. Subverted or averted by the time of the game, however, since Wonder Woman is shown to be much more ruthless by then.



* HeroicSacrifice:
** Having beaten down Superman, Captain Atom is about to finish him off when Wonder Woman arrives and nicks his containment suit with her sword. Knowing he'll not only die but kill the entire North Pole if he stays on Earth, Atom pulls a TakingYouWithMe on Superman, hauling him far into the atmosphere. He saves the rest of the Insurgency, critically injures Wonder Woman (who chased him), but fails to kill Superman.
** [[spoiler:Green Arrow deliberately fires an arrow]] containing a super-pill at Superman, knowing he'll dodge it and be distracted enough that the other Insurgents will have time to retrieve the pill, ultimately allowing Batman to replicate it. The distraction costs him his life, as Superman beats him to death.
