An index of characters that have appeared in [[Main/{{DCAU}} The DC Animated Universe]] created by Creator/BruceTimm, Creator/AlanBurnett and Creator/PaulDini. Mostly overlaps with the [[Franchise/TheDCU original comic books]], but The DCAU is largely responsible for getting many viewers into these characters and helping them appreciate these timeless icons.

The DCAU is composed of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/SupermanTheAnimatedSeries'', ''WesternAnimation/BatmanBeyond'', its {{spinoff}} series ''WesternAnimation/TheZetaProject'', ''WesternAnimation/StaticShock'', ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague'', and ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited''. No, ''not'' the animated ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', no matter what certain parts of FanDumb say.

Characters are listed in the series they first became important in.
