* {{Narm}}: As noted under MemeticMutation, the Joker (and the movie as a whole) has received a lot of derision for trying way too hard to be DarkerAndEdgier, not helped by the film [[http://www.complex.com/pop-culture/2015/11/david-ayer-suicide-squad-pg-13-rating-confirmed only]] getting a PG-13 rating.

** Amanda Waller staring down Batman is probably the big one (loosely adapted into the ''JusticeLeagueUnlimited'' cartoon with Waller offhandedly calling him "rich boy"), but the gradual reveal of Oracle proved to be the one with the most disproportionate effect on the DCU.

** Amanda Waller herself was a walking mine of awesome moments. Laughing as her rebellious subordinate desperately held a gun to her face, and ''daring'' him to shoot. Utterly crushing Kobra's Janus Directive plans.

* HarsherInHindsight: In an early issue Rick Flag and Waller get into a fight over mind-wiping old Suicide Squad members so they don't reveal information about the squad. Mind-wiping to hide secrets would become a much more serious problem when regular heroes start doing it in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis''. Even weirder, Waller of all people eventually relents and decides mind-wiping is too extreme.

* MagnificentBastard: '''AMANDA WALLER'''. There are VERY few people in the DCU who beat her at this.

* MoralEventHorizon: If murdering Robin - a ''[[WouldHurtAChild minor]]'' - before the events of ''Film/BatmanVSupermanDawnOfJustice'' didn't make Joker enough of a monster already, torturing Dr. Harleen Quinzell probably removes any kind of sympathy to the character.

*** Similarly, Jared Leto's performance as the Joker has met with some derision (''especially'' his alleged MethodActing off-camera). A significant amount of people at ''best'' think Leto is trying way too hard.



** After stories of how into the character Jared Leto was getting, mocking stories that make fun of how over-the-top or how it seems like he's trying to hard to be edgy behind the scenes have been popping up.

* JustHereForGodzilla: A lot of people are interested in seeing how an anti-hero/villain-led superhero movie will turn out, along with what this means for the DCEU. Others just want to see a live-action version of Harley Quinn, or Leto's interpretation of the Joker, or both.
