** AdultFear: Atrocitus was the first to discover Sinestro ''had'' a daughter in the first place, and vowed to kill her in retaliation for Sinestro's acts against him. This marked a very rare moment when Sinestro was genuinely afraid.

She was arrested and imprisoned on Oa, but broke free from her cell during a prison riot. While searching for her book, she found the mysterious Book of the Black, only for the Guardian known as Scar to trap her within it. During ''ComicBook/BrightestDay'', [[spoiler: Krona]] freed her and recruited her for his plans.

* 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]].



* BackForTheDead / BackForTheFinale: Sinestro's return during Emerald Twilight part 3. The character had not been seen for years, apart from an appearance as a spirit possessing John Stewart in Mosaic. Yet in what was meant to be Hal Jordan's final issue as Green Lantern, the Guardians seemingly resurrect Sinestro from his imprisonment inside the Central Power Battery in an attempt to stop Hal Jordan's rampage. It doesn't work, as Hal kills him by breaking his neck. Later stories would reveal that the Sinestro that died was a Parallax-created illusion to help break Hal Jordan's will, but at the time this was meant to be the final showdown between Hal and Sinestro.

* DaddyHadAGoodReasonForAbandoningYou: He gave up his daughter 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.



** InterspeciesRomance[=/=]InterspeciesFriendship: He's Korugarian, while Abin and Arin are Ungaran.



* FaceHeelTurn / FallenHero: Sinestro used to be the single most respected member of the Green Lantern Corps, until he took a shortcut in his work by enslaving his home planet.

* InterspeciesFriendship: He's Korugarian, while his partner, Abin Sur was Ungaran.
* InterspeciesRomance: He's Korugarian, while his late wife, Arin Sur, Abin's sister was Ungaran.



** LaserGuidedKarma: His puppy-kicking is not without consequence. Several members of the Red Lantern Corps, as Atrocitus himself is happy to point out, are victims of Sinestro's corps, making him partially responsible for the rise of the Red Lanterns. And killing Laira drives Hal into such a rage that he is inducted into the Red Lantern Corps himself and comes dangerously close to killing Sinestro and his corpsmen, if not for Saint Walker's intervention.

* When the Corps was first founded, Franchise/{{Batman}} was offered a ring, but was rejected due to Batman's previous encounter with a Green Ring. This version of "Sinestro Corps Batman" was enough famous to have [[MerchandiseDriven his own figure]] as well [[DownloadableContent DLC costumes]] for Batman in [[VideoGame/LegoBatman various]] [[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity video]] [[VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs games]].


Added DiffLines:

* Superboy-Prime was freed and later recruited as part of the Corps for ''ComicBook/SinestroCorpsWar'' as herald for the Anti-Monitor ([[DragonWithAnAgenda with his own agenda, by the way]]).

* OddFriendship: Ever since "Forever Evil" he's been good buddies with [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Black Adam]]. Though given their similarities (FallenHero, convinced tyranny is the best way to ensure peace) maybe it's not so odd.

* AntiHero: When written by Creator/GeoffJohns he's much more willing to work with the heros against bigger threats.

to:

* TheAce: Before Hal, he was considered the greatest of the Green Lanterns. It shows, as he has tricks up his sleeve that Hal ''still'' hadn't learned, even after over a decade on the job. When it comes to tactical use of the power ring, Sinestro has no equal.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilFormerFriend: To Hal Jordan, who he mentored. The two still respect each other to a degree.
-->'''Hal''': Were we ''ever'' truly friends?
-->'''Sinestro''': That's the tragedy of all this, Jordan. Hal. We'll ''always'' be friends.

* KickTheDog: Though he is being portrayed more sympathetically, Sinestro does occasionally do this to remind readers that while he might be justified in questioning the Guardians' authority, he is still a villain. He killed Red Lantern Laira just when it seemed like Hal might have calmed her down and ''taunted Hal about it'', and then he later [[spoiler: stabbed Ganthet]].

** DefectorFromDecadence: Well, somewhat: she's one of the New Gods of New Genesis, who in post-ComicBookFlashpoint continuity have suffered from ''severe'' AdaptationalVillainy. The Sinestro Corps itself isn't much better.

* EvilerThanThou: During the Red Lanterns' introductory arc, he and Atrocitus spent much of the time boasting in each other's face about being the bigger threat.

[[spoiler: He killed Red Lantern Laira just when it seemed like Hal might have calmed her down and ''taunted Hal about it'']] and then he later [[spoiler: stabbed Ganthet]].
* KnightTemplar: Above all, he wishes to bring order to the universe- and he's willing to completely enslave it to do so.

* 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]].

Added DiffLines:

* AndIMustScream: Was among those female Sinestro Corpsmen the Star Sapphires attempted to convert via crystal prisons. As she was in their custody during the ComicBook/BlackestNight and its lead-up, however, she was forced to hear the voices of her stolen children as they were abducted by Black Lanterns while unable to do anything about it. This causes her to cry, and Miri Riam feels a moment of SympathyForTheDevil.


Added DiffLines:

* PsychicPowers: Not that it's heavily expanded upon, but her milk apparently creates a telepathic connection between her and those who ingest it, which implies some level of MindControl and {{Telepathy}} on her part.
