* If June appears, the Enchantress will appear in a similar way to ''Film/SuicideSquad'' -- creeping up behind her to take control before enveloping her body.

* If Grodd is the first to speak in the intro exchange - meaning he was the first person there - he's waiting around and drinking a red fluid (blood or wine?) from a human skull. Unsettling enough, but the battle venue furthers the implications. One of the stages is a bar full of human patrons... y'know, the type he murderously hates? Best case scenario: he's chilling around and nobody's brave/stupid enough to bother him (besides the other fighter)... worst case: that used to be a patron.
** Gets even worse when you remember that DependingOnTheWriter, Grodd sometimes ''eats human brains!''
*** This is implied to be the case for this iteration as well in one of Grodd's clashes with the Joker:
-->'''Joker''': Chilled monkey brains are delish!
-->'''Grodd''': It would seem we are alike, after all.
** One of his attacks is to pin his victim and ''bite into their face''.


* When Superman confronts Green Lantern after defeating Brainiac, instead of taking the ring from him, like the heroic Superman did with Sinestro in ''Injustice: Gods Among Us'', [[ThatsGottaHurt he simply blocks Hal's punch and crushes his hand]]. [[{{Fingore}} When Clark lets go, the fingers point in all sorts of directions.]]

** Joker's winpose, simple but chillingly effective: He pulls out some cards, throws them into the air and grabs the joker card and holds it over his face laughing as embers of the other cards fall around him.

** And to make it better (or worse!) Scarecrow's gear can make him a lot worse. Some of the things he can have in his repertoire include gas masks, bones, barbed wire, metal plaques nailed with big metal spikes, a noose hanging from his neck or a bone mask that resembles a plague doctor's hood, among others...


* Enchantress: June tricks Brainiac into consuming Enchantress, the merging apparently killing them both. June is now free to live a normal life, getting her job back, and having a date. Sounds pretty [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming heartwarming]] right? [[YankTheDogsChain But then Enchantress comes back, regains control of June]] [[MultiversalConqueror and now plans to bewitch]] ''[[MultiversalConqueror all 52 multiverses]]''. June's painful scream as she's being taken over by Enchantress just makes it even harder to watch.

* Robin [[SlashedThroat slitting Zsasz's throat]] with a batarang in the first chapter. Just how easy it was for one of Batman's signature tools to be used to kill a man is incredibly disturbing. Granted, Zsasz [[AssholeVictim had it coming]], but the fact that Robin did it while he was not only unarmed, but also after putting him in a chokehold and kicking his legs out from behind was ''very'' hard to watch. Doesn't help that it looks eerily similar to a terrorist execution. If you look at Superman's face, [[EvenEvilHasStandards he is clearly horrified at what Damian just did]]. Add to the fact that Robin sounded more like a cold-blooded killer.

* The Story Mode's endgame forces the player to pick between siding with either Batman or Superman. Should Superman be picked, his ending [[TheBadGuyWins is anything but good]]. Superman kills Brainiac and gains control of his ship, turning him into what looks like a Coluan-Kryptonian hybrid, complete with lifeless ProphetEyes. Superman imprisons Supergirl, and boasts that with Brainiac's powers and collection, he can now reinstate his power across the whole universe (and possibly others, [[MultiversalConqueror if his ending is to be trusted]]), with the powers of a full Kryptonian army, among others, that could rival the entire Lantern Corps (including the Red and Yellow Lanterns). The worst part? Batman [[CruelMercy isn't killed]], but is [[ReforgedIntoAMinion instead transformed]] [[UnwillingRobotization into a mindless]] [[FateWorseThanDeath robotic monstrosity]], and threatens Supergirl with a similar fate if she refuses to become TheDragon to his new regime, forcing her to a SadisticChoice. And her look of shock and horror upon seeing "Batman" says it all. It's unknown what happened to her in his Arcade ending, but it's possible that she chose to become his NumberTwo, or was forcibly turned into a brainwashed cyborg by her cousin.
** Also borders on ParanoiaFuel and FridgeHorror of what Superman could do with a brainwashed Batman. Superman could force him into breaking his no-killing rule constantly, permanently staining Batman's hands with the blood of countless people. This could be so downright jarring that if Batman somehow ever gets freed, the immense PTSD he would suffer after being ReforgedIntoAMinion and forced to kill many (possibly his own allies) could leave him catatonic, and that's just assuming he isn't DrivenToSuicide. Not to mention, Batman seeing himself forced to kill may likely cause him to [[DespairEventHorizon effectively lose the will]] to lead another rebellion against Superman. If being a brainwashed minion for Superman wasn't enough, then this could be an even bigger FateWorseThanDeath for Batman.
** And remember the implication that the Injustice universe was destroyed in the comics? If that's the case, then this game doesn't take place in the Injustice universe, but ''another'' universe where similar events occurred. How many universe are there where Superman was driven by Joker to form the Regime? And in how many of ''those'' did Superman triumph over Batman, kill Brainiac, and take power for himself? Somewhere, in some universe, MultiversalConqueror Superman is a reality, and he's coming. . .

** It says a lot about Joker that almost every character is disturbed, shocked, or just understandably disgusted at the absolute monster he truly is, given how he caused Superman's fall from grace in the last game; even Hellboy, a guy who has encountered literal demons and monsters, calls him “one sick piece of crap”. No wonder why he's [[HateSink despised by everybody]], [[EvenEvilHasStandards including the villains.]]
