* ALighterShadeOfBlack: He's evil, but he's generally treated as the better man when he [[EvilVersusEvil fights over villains]] like [[GalacticConqueror Mongul]] or [[OmnicidalManiac Nekron]].



* DastardlyWhiplash: At least in appearance.

to:

* DastardlyWhiplash: At least in appearance.Subverted; he's a villain and has a Snidely-esque whiplash, but [[AntiVillain his personality]] is nothing like the villain stereotype.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Deep down he still cares for his dead wife Arin Sur, and his daughter Soranik Natu. He also had a very close friendship with Abin Sur, who's dismissal by the Guardians is one of the reasons he hates them.
** InterspeciesRomance/InterspeciesFriendship: He's Korugarian, while Abin and Arin are Ungaran.



* LukeIAmYourFather: He's Soranik Natu's father.
** DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: He gave her up so she wouldn't be persecuted for her father's [[KnightTemplar political ideas]]. [[SuicideAttack Given what happened to her mother]], it was clearly a good call.



* MeaningfulName: His name is derived from "sinestra", which is Latin for left-handed. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast It's also an idication he's not a nice guy]].
* ObviouslyEvil: He's scarlet-skinned with a [[DastardlyWhiplash Snidely-esque whiplash]], and called ''Sinestro''; the only thing shocking about his villain is that [[UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans it's well-intentioned]].



* ASinisterClue: He's left-handed, which is referenced in his name.



* BerserkButton: ''Does not'' take kindly to the idea that he fears anything, especially Hal Jordan.



** SpikesOfVillainy: Covered in spikes across his body, and very evil.



** HollywoodAcid: Has an incredibly acidic interior
** StarfishAliens: One of the more alien memebrs of the Sinestro Corps



** AIIsACrapshoot: Was a non-sentient drone initially. When it's creators gave it free will, if became outraged at the slavery it perceived, and created a fear program to topple the planet.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: The Black Corephans]] were the direct result of nobody bothering to ask her where her children were. [[spoiler: Which basically means the Green Lanterns and Zamorans were responsible for the mass starvation of thousands of innocent children of their own deceased comrades.]]

** In Sinestro's solo comic, the Corps head to Earth to defend it from an invasion of emotion stealing creatures (and even manage to recruit heroes and villains from Earth into the Corps to help out). When Arkillo protects a mother and daughter from one of the creatures, the little girl, with absolutely no fear of Arkillo's appearance, tells her mom not to worry because a superhero is protecting them, which Arkillo instantly notices. Shortly afterwards, the Corps head out to fight some more, but Arkillo opts to stay behind to protect the defenseless civilians.

A sentient virus recruited into the Sinestro Corps. Even before joining the Sinestro Corps, Despotellis was a genocidal maniac, having killed over three-fourths of the beings in Space Sector 119. Sinestro used Despotellis to murder Maura Rayner, using her death to break her son Kyle's will to make him susceptible to possession by Parallax. During the ''SinestroCorpsWar'', Despotellis infected Guy Gardner, but it was defeated by his counterpart in the Green Lantern Corps, the sentient smallpox virus Leezle Pon, whose partner Despotellis had killed. Despotellis is currently in custody on Oa.

Like Ion, Parallax can possess a living host, but it either dominates them completely or subtly manipulates their actions. Hal Jordan was its best-known host, through whom Parallax destroyed the Green Lantern Corps and nearly remade the entire universe. During the ''SinestroCorpsWar'', Parallax possessed Kyle Rayner for a brief time.

{{Sinestro}} was a former Green Lantern who carried out his oath through the use of tyranny. When exposed, Sinestro was brought in by Hal and imprisoned in the Battery. There, he made contact with Parallax, a living yellow parasitic embodiment of fear. Years later, after his plot against Hal Jordan had run its course, he retreated to the Anti-Matter universe and built a Yellow Power Battery, making him the first to harness one of the new colors to form a Corps.

* RedShirt: A common Sinestro Corps character trait in the {{New 52}}. In the opening arc of the relaunched Green Lantern book, any Sinestro Corps character introduced that was not existent from the group's inception, from the hunter sent after Sinestro in issue 2 to EvilGenius Professor Insidd, was killed off before the arc's conclusion. Meanwhile, most of the established Yellow Lanterns were said to have been forced into a hibernating state.
