Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalSexuality: Played with. This version of Adrian is still married to Doris, but the comic Prometheus was implied to be homosexual, or at least [[PragmaticPansexuality pragmatically pansexual]].


** Despite being considered Oliver's worst enemy, he actually dealt the least permanent and/or lasting damage to him than any other villain. The only real win he has on him is the deaths of Samantha Clayton and Malcolm Merlyn - while Samantha's death does traumatize William and isolate him from Oliver for a while, Malcolm's death actually makes things better for Team Arrow. His other attempts fail miserably or are completely undone. Meanwhile, the other main villains successfully kill some of Oliver's allies and/or leave a mark or legacy that haunts Oliver Queen.

* PracticallyJoker: He takes a lot of queues from the Clown Prince of Crime, being the psychotic ArchEnemy and EvilCounterpart of TheHero who is a Batman analogue. He is deeply obsessed with ruining the hero's life, being completely depraved of humanity and dedicates his entire life to his cause. This becomes even more apparent in Season Six where he returns as a Vertigo induced hallucination to haunt Oliver, very much like Joker did to Batman in ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight'', establishing himself as the one enemy Oliver can never be truly rid of.

* PracticallyJoker: All in all, this guy is pretty much the Joker without the clown gimmick.

* AdaptationalNameChange: None of the versions of Prometheus were named Simon Morrison.

to:

* AdaptationalNameChange: None of the versions of Prometheus were named Simon Morrison. Additionally, Adrian Chase was his real name in the comics, while here it's merely an alias.


** In his civilian disguise as Adrian Chase, he's also married, but he kills his wife Doris when she tries to stop him from getting revenge on Oliver.

** In his civilian disguise as Adrian Chase, he's also married, but and while he kills his wife Doris when she tries to stop him from getting revenge on Oliver.Oliver, he seems genuinely sad [[BlueAndOrangeMorality while blaming Oliver for "forcing" him to do it]].



* GodzillaThreshold: Prometheus manages to force Oliver to this position by being so much of a threat that Oliver is forced to turn to [[ArchEnemy Malcolm Merlyn]] and [[EvilFormerFriend Slade Wilson]] for help to finally take him down.



* {{Irony}}: Despite being considered Oliver's worst enemy, he ironically dealt the least permanent and/or lasting damage to him than any other villain. The only real win he has on him is the death Samantha Clayton and even then that's not much of a victory at all. His other attempts fail miserably or are completely undone. Meanwhile, the other main villains successfully kill some of Oliver's allies and/or leave a mark or legacy that haunts Oliver Queen.

*** His endgame actually ''helps'' Team Arrow more than it hurts them; aside from Samantha's death, Diggle's shoulder injury, and Thea being comatose for a few months, Chase's DeadMansSwitch kills Evelyn, Merlyn blows himself up while [[TakingYouwithMe taking Harkness with him]], Talia is so injured she successfully gets arrested and removed from the board entirely, Slade successfully redeems himself and goes free, and Black Siren being left for dead is one of the catalysts for her later HeelFaceTurn.
** In the comics, Prometheus is notorious for being the person to completely destroy Star City, truly earning his title as one of Oliver's [[ArchEnemy worse enemies]]. Here, Prometheus is actually the first antagonist whose primary goal is ''not'' to destroy Star City.


Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionRejection: Oliver is still willing to reach to Adrian to help him despite all of his crimes... until Adrian makes it clear just how insane he is by killing his wife as she is trying to talk him down. It's treated as his MoralEventHorizon InUniverse, and from that point on Oliver makes no presumptions that he will ever be able to peacefully stop him.

Added DiffLines:

* SpitefulSuicide: In the Season Five finale, Chase holds Oliverís son hostage, while he himself is tied to a DeadMansSwitch that is rigged to cause the island (which Oliverís friends are on) to blow up if he dies. He forces Oliver to make a SadisticChoice, save his son by killing Chase which will cause his friends to die, or let Chase kill his son and save his friends. Oliver tries to TakeAThirdOption and knock Chase aside. Chase does not accept this and proceeds to shoot himself in the head to set off the explosions to spite Oliver one final time

* EvilCounterpart: Prometheus serves as the exact antithesis to Green Arrow; he seems to be targeting anyone who might be successful in cleaning up Star City. He even recruits vigilantes to help him, like Evelyn. He even invokes the Hood since he chooses victims whose names are anagrams of people off the List, in contrast to the actual people on the List who more or less deserved to die. This extends to their civilian identities too, where he's a very high ranking member of Star City's government, much like Oliver. In addition, both he and Oliver were motivated to take up arms by the deaths of their fathers, both were trained by Talia al-Ghul. The key difference is Oliver strives to better than his father just as his father had wished, while for Prometheus it served as a StartOfDarkness and he became far worse than his father ever was.
