There are a lot of differences between the Suicide Squad Isekai anime and the original DC version. From the personalities of the characters to their enhanced abilities, Suicide Squad Isekai presents a unique take on the notorious group, blending the familiar elements of the Suicide Squad with isekai tropes.

Suicide Squad Isekai vs Original DC Version: How Are They Different?

From the personalities of the characters to their enhanced abilities, Suicide Squad Isekai has made adjustments to the original DC version to make the show feel more like an isekai anime.

While it has an original anime storyline, Suicide Squad Isekai still aims to capture the essence of the original DC characters for new and long-time fans to know and recognize.

Setting and Genre

The original Suicide Squad operates in the dark and realistic world of the DC Universe.

They often involve themselves in high-stakes battles against other heroes and supervillains in urban landscapes such as Gotham City and war-torn regions across the globe.

On the other hand, the Suicide Squad Isekai anime transports the anti-heroes to the fantastical world of isekai, where swords and magic reign supreme and creatures such as orcs and dragons abound!

The Characters' Personalities

Unlike the original DC version, the main characters of Suicide Squad Isekai are more humorous, particularly Clayface, Rick Flag, Harley Quinn, Ratcatcher, and even Deadshot.

From Rick Flag's attempt to communicate with Cecil in the isekai language he picked up from the orcs to Clayface's interest in the isekai world and its cliches, to Deadshot and Ratcatcher's scenes from their time in jail, these characters are so amusing that they make the anime more enjoyable to watch.

Enhanced Powers and Abilities

As soon as the Suicide Squad arrived in the isekai world, Clayface noticed a change in his abilities. It's as if some power began to flow through him, making him stronger than he was in the real world.

Originally, Clayface could only manipulate the clay on his body, but in the isekai world, he could manipulate any clay he could find.

However, because he has just recently discovered how to use his abilities, they do not appear to be particularly versatile.

The same is true for Harley, who may have obtained superhuman strength as shown when she used the magic bat against her opponent, sending her opponent flying through the ceiling.

These are just a few of the changes made by the creators to add a distinct touch to Suicide Squad's renowned characters.

As the story moves along, viewers may discover more obvious differences, so keep watching the isekai anime to avoid missing them!
