Continuity to other DC Animated Films
- During a scene in a restaurant while speaking with Barbara about metahumans she met, Zoe mentions a "blond boy who is capable of extraordinary things... except talk". This boy is Jericho, whose powers manifested by the end of the film after surviving a shot in his head by Mother Mayhem. The character eventually has an appearance in Lobo. Terra is also mentioned in this conversation about Deathstroke's manipulations on her.
- Deadshot's nano bomb is revealed to have been defused by Cyborg shortly after he accomplished the mission Waller sent him and the Squad for.
- After defeating Captain Boomerang in a fight, Flash remarks: "You're lucky you're not getting your ass kicked by Zoom this time.", refering the climax of the film on which Boomerang was brutally beaten to near death by Zoom over the "Get Out of Hell Free" card.
- The film is set about five months after the end of Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay. This is because of the moment Waller is taken to prison in Belle Reve for one year, on which Deadshot remarks that Waller would die in the very first month, hinting his awareness of Waller's terminal disease, which would take effect in six months.
- Also, in the very last second before being arrested in Belle Reve, Waller taunts that even if she dies of her disease, she would "make her trip worth it" with the card. Only until Deadshot enrages her by remarking that it is now useless. This is due to Deadshot having passed the card to Bronze Tiger, who was dying of wound cuts inflicted on him by Zoom, and let him ascend to Heaven.
