* TheScapegoat: Hal takes on this role after the Guardians severely damaged the reputation of the Corps by trying to create the Third Army, and after the Durlans made things worse. He steals the gauntlet of Krona and "goes rogue", planning to take the fall for the rest of the Corps, so they can regain their reputation as stalwart and trustworthy lawmen.

* TheObiWan: Ganthet to Kyle in the '90s; today, him and Sayd for the Blue Lantern Corps.
** Also, Hal (as The Spectre) qualifies; quoted in ''Green Lantern'' (Vol. 3) #142:
-->'''Spectre''': ...Be prepared. It is coming. Make yourself whole.
-->'''Kyle''': Very... very Ben Kenobi of you, Hal...
** Alan Scott as well. Early on in Kyle's run as Green Lantern, Alan got him on the right track with how to use his ring and accept his position.

** It's worth noting (and is noted in the comics) that love is on the far end of the emotional spectrum (along with Rage) and the further along you are, the more power the emotion has over you.

** It's looking more and more like the Krona and Relic arc from Lost Army will end up as one of these.

** Kilowog is the most depicted alien Green Lantern. If there's a storyline involving the Corps, you can bet Kilowog will be there and prominent.

* UnfortunateNames: John Stewart was originally to be named "Lincoln Washington" thanks to Julie Schwartz. Neal Adams explained to him why it wouldn't be appropriate:
-->I get the script. First page of the script I read it. Hes an architect. Good. Hes out of work. Makes sense. A black architect, not being able to go to work. Very sensible. Name, Lincoln Washington. So I go to Denny. Denny, Im guessing you didnt name this character. Denny says no. Im guessing Julie named the character. He says yes. I go to Julies office and close the door. Julie. Lincoln Washington. (Julie says) Whats wrong with that name? I know lots of guys with that name. That maybe true, but its what we call a slave name.

* NemesisWeapon:
** The renegade Lantern SelfDemonstrating/{{Sinestro}} originally wielded a ring that was composed entirely of the "yellow impurity" in the standard-issue GL rings. In more modern continuity, Sinestro and his Sinestro Corps wield rings that tap into fear, the antithesis of the willpower the modern Green Lantern rings tap into. Further, under Creator/GeoffJohns's tenure, this was expanded into six other Lantern corps that tapped into other emotions, some of which were Nemesis Weapons to one another, including Black Hand and the Black Lantern Corps, whose rings drive them to ''consume'' emotion on the grounds that the blackness of death is the absence of emotion.
** And in the old days, Hal Jordan also contended with Evil Star, whose weapon contrasted Hal's ring by making its wielder evil and insane while Hal's ring reflected Hal's supposed fearlessness.

In ''Series/{{Arrow}}'' a flashback taking place in Coast City shows a man in a bar wearing a flight jacket with the name Jordan on it.
