* CompleteMonster: Mr. Tanner, from the ''Wanted'' arc, manages to occupy a special field of depravity despite being a [[HumansAreTheRealMonsters normal human with no superhuman powers]]. Mr. Tanner runs an [[SlaveryIsASpecialKindOfEvil international slavery ring]], with a focus on [[WouldHurtAChild young children]]; countless children are abducted from across the globe to be painfully branded and serve as abused {{sex slave}}s for years on end at the hands of Tanner and his buyers. Having perpetuated the ring of pedophilic rape and torture for years, Tanner catches the eye of one of his previous victims--Grace Chou, who suffered under his abuses for three years and is now a fully-grown superhuman--and goads her into coming back into his grasp by arranging the murder of an innocent man and kidnapping the young daughter of Arsenal to be turned into a sex slave. Tanner's atrocities are a dark reminder of similar incidents happening every day in real life, and despite being an incredibly minor villain in the long run, Tanner still stands out as one of the most realistically depraved characters in the DC universe.
* CriticalDissonance: For all that the Creator/JuddWinick iteration of the team is disdained by fans of the original series, it lasted longer than any other run on the team.
* TheWoobie: Windfall's run in the original book consists of her being a submissive, depressed introvert abused and bullied by her psychotic sister who previously killed their parents before defecting to the Outsiders, being captured, cloned, then having to kill her clone before eventually retiring from superpowered life altogether to attend college. By the time she shows up in the 2007 ''ComicBook/SuicideSquad'' series she'd gotten drugged and gang raped at a frat party, had the video of it posted on the internet and was sent to prison after fighting back against her rapists. She's left asking why God hates her before eventually [[HeroicSacrifice dying to save the rest of the team from Chemo]].
