** Creator/WillaHolland (Thea) is pretty much playing her character from ''{{Film/Legion}}'' - a rebellious teenage daughter to an upper-class family.
** Felicity having a DisappearedDad. Creator/EmilyBettRickards' role in Music/{{Nickelback}}'s music video [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nt2kM0TsubU&NR=1 "Never Gonna Be Alone"]] also has one (albeit in a more TearJerker way).



** Barry mentions that [[ICantDance he can't dance]]. [[Series/{{Glee}} Some might disagree]].
** A flashback in "Heir to the Demon" reveals that Mrs Lance was a Professor. Creator/AlexKingston has played a Professor [[Series/DoctorWho before]].
** Tatsu is handy with katanas, just like Yukio, the character Creator/RilaFukushima played in ''Film/TheWolverine''. She's also tasked to "babysit" the WhiteMaleLead there, though this time she has her entire family helping her with the "job".



*** Katrina Law's character is still an ArcherArchetype ActionGirl. This time though, ''she'' is the one [[GirlOnGirlIsHot who kisses a girl]].



*** Slade's manner of teaching Oliver how to fight is not unlike Doctore Oenomaus' teaching his own character, Crixus.
** Starting Season 3, Creator/BrandonRouth is [[Film/SupermanReturns once again]] flying around in a red and blue suit. In "Suicidal Tendencies", Oliver calls Ray "Supersuit", and Felicity calls his photo imaging tech "X-Ray vision". In "Broken Arrow", he fights Deathbolt, whose eye beams greatly resemble Franchise/{{Superman}}'s heat vision. He defeats him [[WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries by using his hands to cover up the eye beams at point blank range, resulting in blowback.]]
** During her EarlyBirdCameo in Season 2, [[Series/TheFlash2014 Caitlin Snow]] had a scene where she has to run away from [[Film/FridayThe13Th2009 a blade wielding masked killer.]]
** Creator/NealMcDonough is playing a terrorist in a nice business suit who obtained special powers through implied sacrificial means. Are we sure he's not just playing [[Film/StreetFighterTheLegendOfChunLi M. Bison]] again?
*** He makes a joke about Malcom's hand getting cut off, after suffering this himself in ''Series/{{Justified}}''.

** DC Comics COO Creator/GeoffJohns [[https://www.inverse.com/article/15892-dc-comics-and-film-s-boss-geoff-johns-lays-out-the-company-s-path-forward has made comments]] about the show which could be very easily interpretted as displeasure with the direction had taken in its [[SeasonalRot fourth season]] when interviewed about ComicBook/DCRebirth.
--> '''Geoff Johns''': Let’s say you’ve been given the position of writing Green Arrow from scratch. Clean slate. You might say, ‘Okay, I’m going to write this new character,’ and when someone says, ‘Well, what about Black Canary,’ you might say… ‘nope.’ That means you completely misunderstand these characters.

* FunWithSubtitles: A minor example, but the DVDs on Season 1 labels Oliver's dialogue when he's investigating as coming from "Arrow" or "Green Arrow", regardless of whether he's in costume, in his bike jacket and helmet or in ''civilian attire''. He didn't even take either names until season 2 and 4, respectively.

* LyingCreator: Marc Guggenheim is notorious for this, especially in season 4 regarding Laurel's character. He told fans that Laurel was going to get her own storyline and villain, but none of that happened during the season and Laurel was killed off before it could happen. Needless to say, fans and even some of the cast were none to pleased of Guggenheim's fib.
