Injustice:Gods Among Us Wiki

Can't fight crime without cracking a few skulls.

Red Hood (not to be confused with The Joker's former identity), a known anti-hero and former partner of Batman, is a playable character in Injustice 2 (2017). He is classified as a Gadget user in the game.

Red Hood was the second DLC character released and first DLC character available as part of Fighter Pack 1.


Jason Todd once served as Batman’s second protégé "Robin" before being brutally murdered by the Joker. Years later, the powerful healing waters of the Lazarus Pit brought Jason Todd back to life. However the power of the pit comes at a cost, and a change takes hold in Jason. He now uses the mantle of the Red Hood to wage a lethal war on crime.

Injustice 2 Comic

Jason is briefly mentioned by Superman when Batman visits the Kryptonian in the Red Sun Prison.

In issue #46 of the comic, the fake Batman is revealed to be Jason Todd.

Injustice 2

Damian Wayne mentioned Jason to Batman that he couldn't save him. However, it turns out to be false as Jason was revived by Ra's Al Ghul's Lazarus Pit as Red Hood.

Red Hood is a current DLC fighter from Fighter Pack 1.

Personality and traits

Jason retains his individual spirit, not fully siding with neither the Insurgency or the Regime, though he has a hatred for the Regime, citing that their actions had went beyond the pale and they are ultimately responsible for a lot of deaths, both civilian and costumed, despite admitting about executing the criminals with a still very unforgivable sin. Damian is the exception, as they have a neutral terms each other although Jason does hold some resentment towards him for killing Dick Grayson (accident or not) and for the crimes he committed under the Regime.

Powers and Abilities

In comparison to his adopted father, who combines overwhelming barrages of brute force with pragmatic stealth and high-tech weaponry, Red Hood uses a speedier fighting style that emphasizes his speed and athleticism. Jason’s a master martial artist, defeating hordes of enemies with ease. While Acting as the copycat Batman, Jason defeated Bruce in hand-to-hand combat and fought evenly with Wildcat before shooting him to quickly finish his mission. Jason uses his guns and knife for devastatingly fast combo attacks to overwhelm his opponents into submission.

Red Hood carries around shuriken for long-range striking, and his guns carry the ability to create electrical charges that he can channel by striking them together for an initial charge.

Special Moves

Character Trait

Going Ballistic - Red Hood electrifies his pistols and uses them as blunt weapons, enabling him to use new combos.

    • Cancel: Red Hood puts his pistols away and exits the stance.
    • Quick Shot: Red Hood steps backwards firing a single shot at his opponent to deal damage.

These combo strings are required to do any combo for Red Hood when using his Character Trait.

    • Hammer Slam: Red Hood slams his opponent on the face with his pistol.
    • Double Hammers: Follow-up to Hammer Slam, Red Hood strikes the opponent a second time with his pistol.
    • Hammer Fury: Follow-up to Double Hammers, Red Hood uppercuts his opponent with his pistol.

    • Low Shot: Red Hood shoots the opponent in the shins, knocking them off their feet.
  • Cracking Skulls: Requires Brain Buster.
    • Brain Buster: Red Hood performs an overhead double slam with his pistols, knocking the opponent to the ground.
  • Battle Chain: Requires Switch And Shoot.
    • Switch And Shoot: Red Hood grabs his opponent and spins them in the opposite direction and shoots them, knocking them away. This attack acts as a throw and his unblockable unless the opponent is ducking.
      • The attack can be Meter Burned where Red Hood will spin the opponent around but will not shoot them away.
  • Bullet Barrage: Requires Bullet Storm.
    • Bullet Storm: Clicking the Meter Burn button after landing Hammer Fury, Red Hood will strike the opponent twice with his pistols then perform a flipkick, knocking them in the air where he proceeds to shoot them as they fly over him in the opposite direction. The opponent will land on the opposite side of Red Hood after the combo finishes.

Other Moves

  • Grab: Red Hood slashes his opponent with his knife before shooting them at point-blank range, knocking them to the ground.

Super Move

  • Gotham's Outlaw: Red Hood detonates a grenade into his opponent's face, then drops a timer grenade behind the opponent and dropkicks them onto it. The explosion launches the opponent upwards, and Red Hood plugs them from below with his pistols before rolling backward, jumping up and planting a sticky bomb on their back. He then rains bullets down on them from above before aiming down his pistol's iron sight and shooting the sticky bomb, causing it to explode.
    • Equipping Red Hood's Legendary Multiverse item allows him to combo off his Super Move once it has finished.

Injustice 2- Red Hood's Ending

That. Felt. Good. Titanium composite hollow point bullets with a C4 kicker. Fastest, most explosive ammo in the world. I made them myself. With the invasion over, Bruce and Superman started fighting again. I wasn't down with either of them. On the one hand, the Regime's right. Scumbag murderers and rapists deserve to die. But on the other hand, I'm no fan of government authority. Especially the dictatorial variety. So while the World's Finest fight each other, I fight for the people. The weak. The innocent. Anyone who can't protect themselves. When they cry out for a savior, I'll answer. As for the criminals who threaten them? They need to know that their actions have consequences. That the Red Hood is coming for them.


Red Hood - Red Hood Rising.jpg

To the right is Red Hood's base skin, Red Hood Rising. He is wearing his default gear. The remainder of his costumes can be found on his gallery page.


  • Red Hood (Jason Todd) is voiced by Cameron Bowen, who previously voiced the Tim Drake incarnation of Robin in Young Justice.
  • If Red Hood enters a fight first, he wastes ammo by shooting four shots from each of his guns.
    • If he's second, he's reloading his guns with a fresh clip of bullets.
  • He is the second character to break the fourth wall (next to the Flash's Versus intro and Sub-Zero's victory pose), shooting the camera as his victory pose. This is followed by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles who'd take a slice of pizza before tossing the rest of the pizza onto the camera.
  • If Red Hood and Harley Quinn are to battle each other, Red Hood will reference "Ace the Bat hound" after Harley tells him he will make a good chewie for Bud & Lou.
  • If Red Hood and The Joker were to battle against each other, Red Hood will directly paraphrase the iconic quote from Ghostbusters: "I ain't afraid of no ghosts".
  • For most shaders, his mask is red, but when equipped with God shader, his mask is yellow, Tournament shader: chrome, and Electrum: black.
  • While he wields dual pistols like other incarnations, this version uses custom guns (and ammunition) like his Arkhamverse incarnation; as his single-player ending reveals he is capable of making his own bullets ("titanium composite hollow point bullets with a C4 kicker") that are the fastest and deadliest ammo in the world, and in-game, the magazines of his handguns (which slide into the bottom of the handle) feature taser spikes (similar to how his Arkhamverse handguns are custom-made to link together to form a sniper rifle) on the bottoms.
  • His single-player ending shows him defending a young girl from Professor Pyg; this is a (possibly intentional) reference to Scarlet, a victim of Pyg who becomes Red Hood's sidekick in the Pre-New 52 comics.
  • Red Hood's Legendary Multiverse item is the only item that changes his pistols into revolvers.
  • Cameron Bowen went on to reprise his role in LEGO DC Super-Villains (2018).
  • One of Red Hood's combo moves, "Under the Hood", is a (possibly intentional) reference to the storyline of the same name, in which Jason was revived and took on the mantle of Red Hood.
    • Additionally, another of his combo moves, "Death In the Family", references the storyline of the same name, in which Jason was murdered by the Joker.
