** During the final battle of the first arc Bane, who has finally kicked his addiction to Venom, sees Scandal is about to die. He takes out some Venom and whispers that only for her, the daughter of his heart, will he fall off the wagon. He then gives in to the mind-numbing rage.
*** Scandal cries when she sees what he has done, knowing how important kicking the addiction was to him.


** Junior, daughter of the first Ragdoll, is a crime boss so depraved and ruthless even Intergang gives her a wide berth. Famed for her cruelty and monstrousness, Junior routinely offers her victim [[SadisticChoice a choice of dying horribly or letting Junior kill their families]]. When most choose the second choice, Junior records it, along with the victim's horrible death, and sends it to the families. Having obtained a card that is literally a pass out of hell, Junior kills and tortures countless people, [[DepravedBisexual raping men and women alike]]. When the card is stolen, Junior attempts to have her sins absolved by a priest, only to painfully kill the man when he refuses. Junior captures Bane of the Secret Six, who has the card, and [[MutilationInterrogation tortures him]] with scissors and bricks to gain the location of the others. At the end, Junior loses control and attempts to slaughter every villain present when they see her mutilated true appearance, even her own brother Peter/Ragdoll II. Despite [[FreudianExcuse her backstory of her father having molested her]], Junior is afforded no sympathy, knowing what a depraved monster she truly is and committing countless evil deeds because she loves it and feels she can get away with anything due to the card in her possession.

* {{Squick}}: Shauna seems to be this in general due to her lack of hygiene, to the point where Catman throws up after an accidental glimpse at her privates. Etrigan also causes this on Catman when the former casually mention that he once had sex with Wonder Woman.

* NeverLiveItDown: Cheshire's morality has always been argued since the Qurac incident but many chose to believe her love for Lian was her only redeemable trait even if she was evil. As mentioned in MoralEventHorizon, her actions during the ''Villains United'' miniseries were what proved to many there's absolutely nothing good about her and that she's a horrible mother. Those fans are quick to refer to the incident in question when people argue there's still good in her or that she still loves Lian.

** [[KnightTemplar Mr. Smyth]] from the the "Depths" arc is a man with a radical plan to "better" the world: Bring back the institution of slavery, as it is what "great nations" are built upon. Smyth takes in the slaves and forces them to work in horrible conditions, leading to their deaths from overwork, cave-ins or gas. When a slave named Maria refuses to work any more, Smyth has his assistant begin slaughtering innocent slaves en masse until a broken Maria promises to keep working. Smyth later tricks Deadshot into murdering Maria by offering her "freedom" if she can run to safety before telling Deadshot she is an escaping dangerous prisoner. Smyth also keeps Amazons as slaves with the intent to force them into servitude or death as well, and shows no concern over anything but the restoration of the institution of slavery.

* CompleteMonster:
** Junior may have a FreudianExcuse, being heavily implied to have been molested by her father, Ragdoll Sr., as a child, but the things that she does make her extremely difficult to feel warm for. She's [[DepravedBisexual raped men and women alike]], tortures people to death (including a priest) and enjoys using such torture implements as ''bricks'' and ''scissors'' to murder people. Before she kills people, [[SadisticChoice she forces them to choose whether they die or their family dies]]. If they choose to die, she kills them. But if they say they want their friends and family to die, she tape-records them saying it, butchers them anyway and leaves the body for the friends and family to find, along with a recording of the victim begging her to kill their family instead of them.
** Mr. Smyth, the villain of the "Depths" story arc, runs a massive slave trade operation. The way he "disciplines" his workers is to have his assassins butcher and murder the people around the disobedient slave, while forcing them to watch. He thinks slavery is the greatest thing ever and will fix all the world's problems and wants every nation to have it via lottery.
** Dwarfstar is a crazy, misogynistic serial killer. His first words to Bane upon joining the Six are a question of how many women he's killed. Sure, Cheshire is bad, but Dwarfstar is completely and utterly repugnant even when compared to her. Given the team's current membership, however (an immortal, immensely strong banshee, a sociopathic female assassin, and a giantess), he probably won't be alive much longer. Bane takes an instant dislike to him. After failing to kill [[Comicbook/TheAtom Ryan Choi]] after so long, he hired Deathstroke's Titans team to kill Choi. And he wanted the miniature corpse in a matchbox for a trophy, which he received with a big shit-eating smile on his face. For that, [[spoiler: Giganta beat him with his own belt so badly that it broke every bone in his body.]] Unfortunately, [[spoiler: based on the latest issue of ''Titans'', he's still clinging to life in a Louisiana hospital. He told Ray Palmer that it was Deathstroke who murdered Ryan, and Ray pointed out that Slade probably won't take kindly to this development. ]]
