*** Luiz Feier Motta returning as Aquaman from the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' dub.
*** Júlio Chaves coming back as ComicBook/GreenArrow, also from the ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' dub.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Catwoman in the comics has been an antihero since the early 90's. Still a thief, but on the side of good overall. In the game, however, she is grouped with the villains. This is doubtlessly because PopCulturalOsmosis still considers her to be one of Batman's most well-known adversaries, despite the fact that she's been his ally for over twenty years. The game at least makes nods to this; in-game dialogue mentions that her allegiances are unclear, and in her ending, [[spoiler: she essentially becomes the hero she is in the comics]].

* BreakThemByTalking: The Regime-Universe Joker delivers one of these to Superman in the beginning of the game - comparable to the kind of speeches he's been known to give Batman to [[spoiler: goad him into killing him]], or the speech the alternate Luthor gave to kick off the Justice Lord Universe in WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague. Sadly, there's a moment where it looks like it might not work and Superman might not fall after all, but then Joker keeps talking and getting worse by the second. [[spoiler: It ends badly for everyone.]]

BadassNormal characters like Batman and Green Arrow and Supers alike can be punched through a building, impaled, crushed and hit with all sorts of super moves and still keep going. [[spoiler: This is partly explained by all the BadassNormal characters taking a special Kryptonian pill that confers super-resilience.]]

** During story mode, Regime!Flash catches the arrow that Green Arrow shot at him, only for it to explode in his face, similar to a scene in ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}''. Oliver is also fond of this trick on ''Arrow'', using it on [[spoiler: Malcolm Merlyn. Merlyn borrows this move to take out a Mirakuru-enhanced criminal late in the second season.]] Makes sense if you think about it: DLC includes the show's look and actor as a alternate outfit.

** Bit of a stretch to call it a "gag," but Beast Boy dying from a nuke is a sad way to homage how his original teammates (including his adoptive mother) in the Comicbook/DoomPatrol were killed.
