The second of the new colors to be harnessed. The Oans Ganthet and Sayd left the Guardians of the Universe due to disagreement over what to do about the coming war of colors and the ComicBook/BlackestNight prophecy. Blue Lanterns are few in number as the selection process goes slowly, and they have a symbiotic relationship with the Green Lanterns. The Blue Light of hope is of little use on its own, allowing only flight and personal forcefields (and [[DependingOnTheWriter sometimes]] healing) but in the presence of a Green Lantern, the will of the Green gives hope tremendous power, and the Blue Lanterns can in turn supercharge the Green Lanterns.

* DeusExitMachina: The power of hope triples the output of a Green Lantern ring. As a result, either a Blue Lantern is required pretty much any time there's an existential crisis... or the writers explicitly write them out of the way.
* GoodHurtsEvil: The power of hope generated by the Blue Lantern rings negatively affects all of the emotional powers on the negative end of the emotional spectrum. to wit:
** Blue light drains the energy from Sinestro Corps rings because hope dispels fear.
** The orange power of avarice cannot absorb or consume the blue light of hope because hope is selfless by nature
** The blue light of hope is the only power that can purge the red energy of rage from a Red Lantern and remove a red ring without killing the host for the red ring.
* {{Hope Bringer}}s: Only those who can inspire great hope are inducted into the Blue Lanterns.
* HopeSpringsEternal: All Blue Lanterns are powered by hope. If they lose hope, they cease as a Blue Lantern.
* ImaginationBasedSuperpower: Blue power rings have the same powers as green ones, plus healing, the power to soothe emotions, and the power to instill hope in masses of people. However, most of their powers only function in the presence of a Green Lantern.
* IncorruptiblePurePureness: To the point that Blue Lanterns are immune to the power of Sinestro Corpsmen and Orange Lanterns, and can purge a Red Lantern of his/her rage.
* KryptoniteFactor: When the green light of willpower is nearby, the blue light becomes the strongest of all seven. But by itself, the blue light is the weakest of all seven. Also, the rings can only work depending on the sincerity of their wielders. If the DespairEventHorizon has been crossed, the rings stop functioning properly and leave their current owner.
* LogicalWeakness: Hope is a passive emotion that, despite being an excellent way to endure hard times, doesn't quite motivate people to actually ''do'' anything. Ergo Blue Lantern Rings cannot be used for combat on their own and need a Green Lantern Ring to be nearby to do so.
* TheMedic: Healing is one the Blue Light's powers.
* {{The Pollyanna}}s: They are ''always'' hoping for the best.
* SaintlyChurch: They are a monastic order of Hope Bringers.
* SupportPartyMember: An interesting variation in that by ''being'' support, they actually rise above those who they're supporting. But the resulting spike underlines how much weaker they are on their own.
* SurvivalMantra: "All will be well."

!Notable Blue Lanterns

->'''Homeworld''': Earth

The Hope Entity—the living embodiment of the Blue Light, born from the first prayer and given strength from the hope and faith of every sentient being. The symbol of the Blue Lantern Corps is based heavily on Adara's winged figure. Much like Ion, Adara seems to be a passive influence on its host, merely lending them its great power as opposed to outright possession like Parallax.

* EmotionEater: It thrives on hope.
* EnergyBeing: The living embodiment of the Blue Light.
* RuleOfSymbolism: Sort of hinted to have once been [[Literature/TheBible Noah's dove]].
* VisualPun: It is a bird and it is blue. It's the blue bird of happiness.

!!Saint Bro'Dee Walker
->'''Homeworld:''' Astonia

The living saint of the Blue Lantern Corps, Walker of planet Astonia was the very first member inducted into the Corps by Ganthet and Sayd. His planet doomed by its dying sun, Walker and his family set out on a pilgrimage to a mountain summit where, it was prophesied, a messiah would appear. Due to a series of tragic accidents, all of Walker's family died, and when he finally reached the summit, Walker called out in anger that no messiah was to be found. It was then that he looked into a reflective stone on the mountain summit and realized that ''he'' was the messiah. He returned to his distraught people and preached to them until they became peaceful in their final moments before a Blue Lantern Ring found him. Restoring his dying sun and saving his world, Saint Walker traveled to Odym to serve the Blue Lantern Corps.

* AllLovingHero: Forgave Larfleeze for his attack on Odym and reached out to Atrocitus upon learning he too had lost his family.
* BadassBoast:
** From his introductory arc:
--> [Your ring] is at full capacity, and will remain so, as long as I hope for your well-being. And I will '''always''' hope. Until my last dying breath.
** More generally, his catchphrase could easily be seen as this.
--> All will be well.
* BadassPreacher: Let's reiterate: he's a priest with a power ring.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: He's probably one of the nicest guys in the universe, but pissing him off is the last thing you want to do.
* DespairEventHorizon: When he comes out his coma and learns that [[spoiler:he's the last Blue Lantern]], Saint Walker is so distraught that he loses hope and his ring comes off his finger. It's still with him, but unless he can find hope again, he won't be able to use his ring.
* {{Determinator}}: Maybe not to the extent of a Green Lantern, but he has a tendency to not give up in the face of overwhelming odds. The fact that he kept ascending the mountain to find the messiah despite slowly losing his family to accidents cements this trope.
* GoodShepherd: He preached goodwill and peace on his home planet and continues to do so to the universe at large.
* HeroicBSOD: If his journal is any indication, the death of his son pushed him into one.
* LastOfHisKind: [[spoiler: Saint Walker is the last surviving Blue Lantern after Relic wiped them all out]].
* MoralityPet: He's sort of one for Arkillo after he healed Arkillo's tongue. It's still in the works though.
* NotSoDifferent: He claims that he and Atrocitus this. Atrocitus disagrees since he has someone to blame for his pain.
* PrecisionFStrike:
** Seeing the normally calm and polite Walker punctuate his angry rant with "'''''DAMN YOU!'''''" is pretty jarring.
** Again, this time to Kyle, after he's forced to abandon Odym when the Reach invade.
* SmiteMeOMightySmiter: In his backstory, when he reached the top of the mountain and found it devoid of anything.
-->'''Past!Saint Walker:''' [[BrokenPedestal I kept faith in you through this all!]] My family saw false blessings turn into curses. They gave their lives on this mountain! [[AllForNothing For]] ''[[AllForNothing WHAT?!]]'' No one is here! I '''won't''' accept this! Deliver him! Deliver salvation! [[RageBreakingPoint Show me the Messiah, damn you!]] '''[[RageBreakingPoint SHOW ME!]]'''\\
'''Narration:''' [[RageAgainstTheHeavens I yelled at God.]] [[BoltOfDivineRetribution God yelled back.]]
%%* SexyPriest
%%* StupidSexyFlanders: ...oddly enough for a vaguely cetacean-looking alien.
* TheWoobie: Related to DeusExitMachina. The amount of crap the writers have put him through so he's not around to help is downright distressing.

->'''Homeworld:''' Unknown

Hand-picked by Saint Walker, Brother Warth is the second Blue Lantern. This serene alien resembles a humanoid elephant bedecked in gold jewelry. Warth aided the Green Lanterns against the Red Lanterns on planet Ysmault. He serves as the primary trainer for Blue Lantern recruits.

* {{Expy}}: He looks like the Hindu deity Ganesha. His pose in the Blue Lantern group shot also displays him in a Buddha-like pose.
%%* FaceDeathWithDignity
* HonorableElephant: He's an elephant-like alien who is a Blue Lantern, a person who can inspire great hope.
* LevitatingLotusPosition: As mentioned above, he's often in a Buddha-esque pose.
* NumberTwo: To Saint Walker in the Corps.

!Other Blue Lanterns
* Brother Hynn
* Sister Sercy
* Brother Phräm: An unseen Blue Lantern who was among several lanterns from each Corps to have their rings become drawn to Kyle Rayner for unknown reasons.
* Brother Shon: A novice Blue Lantern who [[DespairEventHorizon succumbs to despair]] when the Reach attacks Odym, causing him to lose hope and his ring to abandon him, leaving him to fall to his death.
* [[ComicBook/TheFlash Barry Allen]] was temporarily deputized in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''.
