Brutality DLC

So, after playing Sub Zero for a bit, I've realized that I really miss having the brutalities in a fighting game. I like Injustice 2 more than MKX in many ways, but the lack of ability to kill people in cool and interesting ways is a noticeable omission in the gameplay. As a result, I thought I'd start a thread about what sorts of brutalities you'd like to see offered for the characters in a DLC.

Now, I do of course realize that the concept of brutalities doesn't fit into the style of the Injustice games and we're never actually going to get such a DLC, so there's no need to spam the thread with pointless posts about all the reasons it won't happen and we can just take all of those valid and logical arguments as a given and move on.

Here's some of the ones which I'd like:

Batman:
Batarang throw
- After all Batman's talk in the story mode about how wrong it is to kill people, I just want to be able to have him fling a batarang into someone's throat and murder the guy.
Parry Brutality- Kill him using a parry. Just have Batman jump on him and pummel the asshole to death. Winning a fight with a parry is a difficult maneuver and if you can pull it off ... then you're fucking Batman, dude.

Superman:
Superman Punch
- Last hit comes from a Superman punch and you just knock the guy's head off.
Shazam - Last hit comes from the grab where he lifts him in the air and lasers him in the face. There aren't any ten year old children in this game for Superman to murder because they gave him backtalk, but he can still burn someone's face off.

Supergirl:
Supermove Brutality
- This one comes from my kid. He was watching while I was playing a game and I did Supergirl's super move. His response while looking at it was "Daddy, she's so stupid. Why doesn't she just throw him INTO the sun?". So, she stops half way through the super move and tosses the jerk into the sun.

Captain Cold:
I'm just kidding. Captain Cold would need to be able to win a fight to be able to do a brutality

Green Lantern:
Lantern's Might - Creates a Lantern inside of the guy's chest and blows him up.

Catwoman:
Face Claw
- Last hit comes from the one where she jumps on the guy's face and then she just claws his face off.

Flash:
Supermove Brutality
- Stops half way and feeds the guy to the T-Rex

Anyone have any other ideas?

I feel they couldve included something similar, with out killing since DC blah blah. Couldve of been like some sort of beat down.

Subzero

Hammer over hammer over hammer
Achieved by excessive hammers in a match and ending with hammer

Knocks down, while getting up freezes one foot to ground, then uppercut causing opponent other foot to land on knee, first foot keeping them stuck in place , zero now freezes knee, zero then proceeded with a boot in the face causing them to bounce their head back on the floor, foot and knees still froze keeping them stuck to the ground, when they bounce back forward and put their hands on the ground zero freezes the hands, end8ng with the opponent hands knee and feet keeping them stuck in a bowing position achieved from ending with a freeze

Brutality on a clone that looks like opponent, ripping it to pieces, then points to down opponent and flexed
Achieved by ending with clone throw


Damn, good topic sir, I could keep going on for all the characters

There's a game that we don't ever wanna mention but it had Heroic Brutalities. I think it'd be cool if it would incorporate the way you'd do brutals in MKX but make it the audience friendly heroic brutality instead

Oh well. There I was thinking that clear and straightforward English gets a point across. Once again, I failed to understand the internet.
-Shaka.
-Clear and straight forward English.

These two do not work together.

I agree with you on this. Brutalities were by far one of the best things added to an NRS game. It does seem a little lack luster to just watch the opponent fall to there knees at the end of the match. Not sure how they could pull this off with out blood and guts but it'd be cool if they did something similar.

The Fantasy is the Reality of the Mind
Captain Cold
1) Freeze your opponent, and then do a F3 to shatter him, calling it "Ice Shatterer".
2) Kick your opponent at any interactable, or just do a D2 to juggle him high, before you do a Wall to throw him onto the Icy Wall (similar to The Pit brutality), calling it "Stalactites".
3) Super Move, and then hold DOWN for a frozen opponent, calling this brutality "Ice Death from Above".
4) Gear brutality: With the BF1 being replaced, do any juggling combo, and then do a MB BF1 to send him flying as a giant horizontal Icicle, calling it "Ice Soldier".

Sub Zero
1) Do a double IK, then freeze your opponent at your first IK, then send him with MB slide to the second IK, and finally go under him, and do a Shatter, calling "Ice Shower".
2) Super Move, and then hold DOWN to smash your opponent to the ground, while frozen, calling it "Break the Ice".
3) Super Move, and then hold FORWARD to make a Home Run on the air frozen opponent, calling it "Ice Run".
4) MB Iceball your opponent, and then do a IK Toss to break him apart at the far end, calling it "Ice Breaker".
5) Gear brutality: Do a Ice Floor, and then back throw your opponent for the MKX Brutality.
6) Make an IK, and then do a MB Frost Bomb to freeze your opponent, and at the same time to split him in two pieces with his shoulder bash, calling it "Ice Rugby".

I'm out of ideas, but... meh. lol

It's all so very confusing.
God some of you are winging little turds. Its a fun thread and super interesting. Just take it for what it is or go scream IT WAS ALREADY KNOWN DAY 2 DOOD in someones tech thread and leave the fun discussion threads in peace.


Ok, so, thoughts.

Red Hood - Win a match where over 70% of all damage done comes via his Gotham Stars, and the killing blow is landed with a BLOCKED MB'd strait Gotham Stars.

The stars slam into there block animation and one gets through, pinging their head back and sticking in their forehead.. they stumble back - clearly dead, while Hood turns to walk away. but instead of falling over they their hand slowly like they're throwing a punch and trying to keep fighting. Hood stops, sighs and spins around at full speed, with a hip draw, old western style, and shoots the star in their forehead with a bullet, which blows the star out of the back of their head, to stick in the background scenery somewhere (it would be small and hard to see, but an important detail imo)... the person shot just falls straight back like they are planking.

Black Canary - Win a match with F2, after having won the first life bar with a F2.

When the F2 is landed and she kind of somersaults over their back, instead of the normal throw she kind of spins behind them and puts them in a rear naked choke. You watch them struggle briefly for a moment, then go still. She throws the limp body and steps on them as she walks over them and away.

Batman - Win a match with a normal grapple as the last hit, after not having thrown ANY batarangs or used any grapples previously.

On hit the grapple spins around the opponents head, wrapping the wire around their throat. Batman then throws the grapple gun into the air as you see the bottom of the batplane whip past super fast, catching the grapple gun on a hook or device for the purpose, causing the opponent to hurtle towards batman at super high speed. He extends his leg, not a kick, just stick its leg out and lets them slam into it face first, breaking the string and smashing them into the ground VERY violently.



More to come maybe.

Not Good Enough
Batman heroic brutality. End the match with a Super Move.

Batman calls his jet, and as it flies up, instead of doing the normal Super, the Batjet instead drops the opponent off through the roof at Arkham Asylum, with their legs bound together.

Black Adam:
F12 1+3, the lightning at the end splits them in half after the final hit
Lightning Storm, Adam keeps zapping them till the opponent fries and turns into a skeleton

while I love brutalities this is literally zero chance of ever happening.

Even so brutalities in MKx were godlike.. I really hope NRS improves them.. they need to be randomised instead of linked to moves and strings.. so you can get variety.

While "BRUTAL"itys are out for a DC game.. they could have done something in the like vein.... that would have been cool... but still.. this is a zero possibility and just dream town.

The hammer one is gold! I love that damn thing

Tier Whore.
You gotta be a moron if you think they will add brutalities to inj2 lol but then again this is tym.

Actually if you look at the heroic brutalities properly you can see it could work (because most of them arent involved with blood, the victim is still moving after the heroic brutality ends) if they program the occuring of the heroic brutality thing like the way they did with brutalities in mkx
 
All right.

Flash

Lightning Kick
After landing 10 lightning kicks throughout the match, meterburn lightning kick will trigger brutality. The first kick is normal, the second kicks the opponents right arm flying, the third kicks his left arm flying, the final hit sends the head flying up queing slow motion.

Fists of Furry
Can only be achieved while still being on first round of health. Killing the opponent extends the opponents animation to some absurd exaggeration. They eventually fall and are still getting tagged by the flashs previous punches. Flash stands toward us Johnny cage like.

GTFO
If it at critical and opponent is still on first round, flash can activate trait, enter rms and hold forward. If the Flash runs past the opponent then congrats he GTFO and conceded the match. However if he is hit during rms run he explodes into a bloody mess.

Fun fun thread thank you!

I just started liberally using the IGNORE button a few months ago... it is amazing how much better TYM is when all the losers are just talking to themselves.
