* TheSociopath: Like many of his other versions, anything he does he does it ForTheEvulz. To him, life is a joke and it's silly to laugh at everything, even when facing death, tormenting/mocking others' misery, or causing wanton chaos. But to others, he's a remorseless butcher who only does it because he thinks ItAmusedMe, and his MEH in causing Superman's FaceHeelTurn is obvious. Even his lone redeeming qualities [[LaughablyEvil being funny]] and his attempts at BlackComedy are deconstructed to bring attention to the brutish and violent MonsterClown he truly is.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalWimp: Swamp Thing is one of ''the'' most powerful beings in DC -- a planet buster who's considered in the same tier as '''Darkseid''', and is one of the handful of DC characters confirmed the be more powerful than Superman. His Injustice counterpart on the other hand gets beaten by ''Harley Quinn'' in his introductory appearance. Later, he shows up as a BrainwashedAndCrazy goon who can get tossed around by Batman. Safe to say, the comics version of the character can do a whole lot more.


* TheCollector: As always, Brainiac seeks knowledge by collecting the major cities of inhabited planets, then destroying the planet itself. As he desires this knowledge to be exclusive, Green Lantern John Stewart will sometimes compare him to the Orange Lantern Larfleeze.

* PetTheDog: Takes a genuine interest in Cyborg, to the point where he even wanted him by his side. However, Cyborg is clearly more disgusted by this
* PlanetLooters: Standard procedure for Brainiac. He takes what he wants from a given world, then discards the rest for being superfluous.

Added DiffLines:

* JurisdictionFriction: Of supernatural kind. Most of the pre-combat dialogues between him and Fate is some sort of conflict of interests between higher forces they serve.


Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpHannibal: Can deliver pretty good one to Doctor Fate during their clashes
-->'''Doctor Fate:''' Order will prevail! | Submit to order!\\
'''Swamp Thing:''' Yes! The ''natural'' order!

* SuperStrength: Goes hand to hand with Superman in the cutscene before his boss fight, and actually seems to have a noticeable edge. His stage transition ([[GameplayAndStorySegregation which only really makes sense when he does it]]) is also the most impressive in the game in terms of striking strength displayed- he kicks his opponent ''straight through'' the walls of his ship, which are ''several meters thick'' and made out of some alien alloy far more durable than any Earth armor (judging by the fact that parts of the ship are capable of restraining Kryptonians, and his own armor is capable of holding up to their blows).

This became more notable when ''Injustice #65'' showed that even Superboy/Connor Kent couldn't break the walls of the same ship with his most powerful punches.


* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:It's revealed that Brainiac is the mastermind behind Gorilla Grodd and by extension, the whole Society.]]
* MechaMooks: His Betas.

* MechaMooks: His Betas. As shown in ''Injustice #64'', they're strong enough to kill Red Lanterns.


Added DiffLines:

** In ''Injustice #65'', Superboy/Connor Kent unleashes his most powerful heat vision burst in a rage when Brainiac [[spoiler:seemingly kills Cassie]], discharging directly into Brainiac's face and upper torso. Brainiac simply walks through it, punches Superboy in the face (bloodying him and nearly making him lose consciousness), and tells him in a mildly annoyed tone to cut it out.


** An arguable example is his ability to go toe to toe with Superman in a physical brawl. This is par for the course for the comics version of Brainiac, but is notable because every other character who's normally on Superman's level (or stronger) got a big case of AdaptationalWimp (see for example Main Superman effortlessly bulldozing Doomsday, Black Adam and Sinestro back to back in the first game, or Wonder Woman and Flash getting beaten by BadassNormal characters in the second game). As a result, Brainiac seems to be one of the top three most physically powerful characters in the Injustice Universe at the moment, along with Superman and Darkseid.



* AdaptationalVillainy: Most versions of Brainiac simply collected Argo City and Kandor, then left Krypton to die a natural death. This Brainiac on the other hand, destroyed Krypton after collecting the two aforementioned cities and has done so time and again on other planets.



** Inverted with one of his intros against Joker, with him implying that the AxCrazy MonsterClown is [[EvenEvilHasStandards way too worse than he is]], and that he's a cancer to his collection who needs to be neutralized.



* EvenEvilHasStandards: Much like the Joker, he causes this reaction in pretty much every villainous member of the cast. Atrocitus swears to avenge his victims, Superman and Wonder Woman consider him an omnicidal tyrant, and every member of the Society [[spoiler:switches sides when they figure out what he really has planned for Earth.]]
** Even he openly despises the Joker, describing him as cancerous and specifically excluding him from ever being in his collection. It's justified as he knows the killer clown will destroy his collection of cities.
** A possible example with the Reverse-Flash. In one of their intros, Brainiac tells Thawne that he is unworthy of his collection, despite the latter's connection to the Speed Force. However, in his intros with the Flash, Brainiac often brings up how he wants to master the Speed Force - so it could be that he just wants little to do with Thawne due to him being an unrepentant (and unreliable) psychopath.


* TheSociopath: Like many of his other versions, anything he does he does these all ForTheEvulz. To him, [[StrawNihilist life is just absurd]], and it's silly to laugh at everything, even when facing death. But to others, he's a remorseless butcher who only does it because he thinks ItAmusedMe. And when you find it hilarious to [[{{Sadist}} torture or slaughter]] [[ColdBloodedTorture innocents to death]] or [[BullyingADragon mock others' misery]], you obviously have problems.

* EvilerThanThou: He's a deranged maniac to boot. Even ''Brainiac'' opines that [[EvenEvilHasStandards he doesn't want him in his collection and calls him a cancer that needs to be destroyed.]] One intro with Enchantress has June imploring her to come out and possess her.
