Fresh off of getting a breakdown on the latest Injustice 2 Watchtower live stream, NetherRealm Studios has unveiled the gameplay trailer for Scarecrow, whom we first saw in the “It’s Good to Be Bad” trailer. His intro with Batman reveals that the scary, demonic-looking form he takes during combat is a result of Jonathan Crane releasing a tank of his signature fear toxin before each match, causing his foes to hallucinate this ghastly incarnation.

The trailer displays his forward-moving, torpedo-like headbutt, his long-range sickle attacks–reminiscent of Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3′s Ghost Rider, or Lobo from the original Injustice: Gods Among Us. He also has a command throw where he fills his enemies with a mouthful of fear toxin, a teleport that allows him to switch sides, and a projectile-destroying special. We also see a few of his Gear abilities that allow him to zone the opponent with a flock of crows, as well as a low attack that keeps foes in a restand state for mixups. He is confirmed to be a Power character.

Finally, once his Trait, the Fear Meter, is filled, he gains access to Traumatize, a fast, low-hitting, fullscreen ground pound that launches for combo opportunities. Lastly, we get another look at his super, which involves him ripping a whole in reality to bury his victims in their own graves.

Let’s explore this terror together in the trailer below.
