* WaveMotionGun: His blast are devastating
* TheWorfEffect: He was pretty easily deposed of by Superboy Prime, though it should be noted that immediately before this he'd been hit with an explosion stated to be powerful enough to obliterate ''an entire galaxy'', so he was hardly at full power.

* FollowTheLeader: In-universe. Despite their proactive stance on evil, the Controllers generally copy the Guardians' methods, creating a corps of Dark Stars to replace the then-obliterated Green Lanterns, Effigy to oppose Kyle Rayner, and attempting to co-opt the Orange Light of Avarice to challenge the Green Lanterns' role as protectors of the universe.

* MadScientist: Admittedly, the madness mostly came in after he fell, but building a massive machine to look at the beginning of existence? Making a gauntlet capable of channelling willpower? He was well on his before then.

* FreudianExcuse: Just try growing up with Mongul as a father, being told that daddy is the hero and the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica dorks in bright colors]] are the evil villains keeping him from bringing the beauty of monstrous tyranny to the Universe. This doesn't justify dog shit of course, but it's at least an explanation.
** Averted in the New 52, where he straight up ''killed'' his family for tyring to interfere with [[EnfanteTerrible his cruel streak]].

* ManBehindTheMan: Typically how they affect storylines. They're not particularly tough in-person, and GenreSavvy enough that they prefer not to experiment on themselves. They're perfectly happy using proxies, however.

Keith Kenyon was a chemist in Coast City who discovered a sunken chest full of gold that had been irradiated by chemical waste. Using the irradiated gold, he created a serum that granted him super-strength and invulnerability for a limited time and became the super-criminal Goldface; eventually, the serum permanently turned his body into solid gold. After fighting Hal Jordan for years, moving to Central City and fighting TheFlash, and killing Tomar-Re in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'', he was imprisoned. After time served, turned over a new leaf and became Keystone City's union commissioner.

* HeelFaceTurn: After menacing GreenLantern for years, Goldface later resurfaced as a recurring character to TheFlash, having given up supervillainy to become an honest union leader.

An EvilCounterpart to our Green Lantern, Power Ring hails from an alternate universe and is a founding member of the Crime Syndicate of America. Pre-Crisis he was a petty criminal who gained a magical ring from a Tibetan mystic named Volthoom; this ring made him one of the most powerful villains on Earth-3, second only to Ultraman.

Post-Crisis (where he was from the Antimatter Universe) and in the New 52 (when he was from a destroyed Earth-3), Power Ring is portrayed as suffering from a curse, with his ring dominating his every thought, and controlling everything he does. He is little more than a pawn for Ultraman, Owlman, and the rest of the Crime Syndicate.

* ArtifactOfDoom: The ring in all continuities.
* BlessedWithSuck: Most versions of Power Ring are essentialy enslaved by the ring, rather than using it for their own ends. Most Power Rings are still evil, just frustrated at their lost free will.
* CurbStompBattle: Pre-Crisis Power Ring inflicts one on Superman after taking the battle to Earth-3 where he has the edge.
* DirtyCoward: In the New 52, where the ring makes him paranoid.
* EvilCounterpart: To our Green Lantern in all continuities—though the Pre-Crisis Power Ring had more in common with Alan Scott, the Earth-2 Green Lantern, than Earth-1 Green Lantern Hal Jordan.
* EvilGenius: Pre-Crisis Power Ring played this role alongside Owlman. Owlman would come up with the plans, but it was Power Ring who would find a way to magically implement them.
* EvilTwin: In the New 52 where in addition to being an evil Green Lantern he is Earth-3's Hal Jordan.
* GoOutWithASmile: New 52 Power Ring dies smiling and thanking Sinestro for freeing him from the ring's control.
* GreenLanternRing: Has an evil variant of one.
* GrewASpine: New 52 Power Ring grows one just in time to die fighting Sinestro.
* HeroicSacrifice: Pre-Crisis Power Ring died alongside Ultraman, Superwoman, and the rest of the Crime Syndicate, attempting to save Earth-3 from the Anti-Monitor's antimatter wave.
* KilledOffForReal: The New 52 Power Ring was pretty definitively killed by Sinestro.
* UnwittingPawn: Of Ultraman in the New 52.
* VillainousValor: New 52 Power Ring, who overcomes his fear and decides to die standing up in his battle with Sinestro.
