- Adaptational Villainy: Quite a few of Earth-2's residents are Evil Counterparts to heroic figures from Earth-1; it's more akin to what the comics call Earth-3. Meanwhile, Earth-3 is the world where Jay Garrick, the real one, is from, and is more akin to Earth-2 in the comics.
- Adaptation Name Change: More of Adaptation Name Swap. Given how many of Earth-2's residents are Evil Counterparts to heroic figures from Earth-1, it's more akin to what the comics call Earth-3. Meanwhile, Earth-3 is the world where Jay Garrick, the real one, is from, and is more akin to Earth-2 in the comics, being bright and colorful.
- Alternate History:
- In "Flash Of Two Worlds", Hunter Zolomon mentions how his father fought in "The War of the Americas". Jesse spends most of her time watching Casablanca with Wally under the impression it's about this war, implying it was their equivalent of World War II.
- Nora Allen is still alive during Barry's adulthood.
- Ronnie becomes the dominant pair in the Firestrom matrix and essentially buries Stein within.
- A number of characters who didn't become metahumans on Earth-1 (Al Rothstein, Eddie Slick, Linda Park, Caitlin Snow, Hunter Zolomon, Dante Ramon, Laurel Lance) were empowered, and some who had powers on Earth-1 don't have them here (Barry Allen, Henry Hewitt, technically note Shay Lamden). Earth-1 Caitlin is revealed to be a metahuman after Barry's Cosmic Retcon, though whether or not she had them before is ambiguous.
- Oliver Queen died in the Queen's Gambit shipwreck years ago, leading his father Robert to be stranded on Lian Yu and return to Starling City as The Hood. After he is arrested, Adrian Chase becomes the Hood.
- Beyonce Knowles is a senator. Have fun figuring out how the dominoes fell there.
- It is heavily implied that Eddie Thawne is still alive in this world, assuming that he is the "Eddie" written on Barry and Iris' phone contacts.
- Caitlin Snow has a brother, though he dies offscreen. For that matter, she flunks med school.
- Harrison Wells has a daughter, Jesse. His wife is also long dead by the time of the Particle Accelerator explosion.
- Thea Queen was born nine months earlier than in Earth-1. She also died of drug overdose when she was 18, heavily implied because of her depression over Oliver's death.
- Malcolm Merlyn is not a corrupt businessman and never became Dark Arrow. It is his son, Tommy, who did.
- Quentin Lance died many years ago, when his children were still teenagers. Also, Sara didn't board the Queen's Gambit and is a mother.
- Televisions are oriented portrait-style.
- Alternate Self: Many characters have counterparts on other Earths. Specifically, this universe shares the most characters (posthumous or otherwise) with Earths 1 and X.
- This universe shares a Harrison Wells with Earths 1, 12, 13, 17, 19, 22, 24, 25, 27, 47, 221, and three unnumbered ones.
- This universe shares a Bruce Wayne with Earths 1, 9, 21, 38, 66, 89, 99, 203, and an undesignated Earth.
- This universe shares a Dinah Laurel Lance with Earths 1, 16, 167, 203, X, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earths 1, 16, and X versions. The Earth-203 version instead resembles Elizabeth Kane from Earths 1, 99, and an undesignated universe.
- This universe shares an Oliver Queen with Earths 1, 16, 167, X, an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earths 1, 16, and X versions, though the Earth-167 version do resemble the one from the undesignated universe.
- This universe shares a Francisco Ramon with Earths 1, 19, 22, and X.
- This universe shares a Barry Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earth-1 version. Earth-90 Barry Allen resembles Earth-1 Henry Allen and Earth-90 Jay Garrick instead.
- This universe shares an Iris West-Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earth-1 version.
- This universe shares a Thea Queen with Earths 1 and 16, though Earth-167 has someone with the surname Dearden take on the mantle of Speedy.
- This universe shares a Nora Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. However, she only resembles the Earth-1 version, though they both resemble Joan Williams from Earth-3.
- This universe shares a Henry Allen with Earths 1, 90, and an undesignated Earth. It's unclear how he looks like, Earth-1 Henry Allen resembles Earth-3 Jay Garrick and Earth-90 Barry Allen instead.
- This universe shares a Floyd Lawton with Earths 1, 167,and an undesignated Earth. However, he only resembles the Earth-1 version.
- This universe shares a Quentin Lance with Earths 1, 16, and X.
- This universe shares a Sara Lance with Earths 1, 16, and X.
- This universe shares a Felicity Smoak with Earths 1, 16, and X.
- This universe shares a Tommy Merlyn with Earths 1 and X.
- This universe shares a Linda Park with Earths 1 and 90, though she only resembles the Earth-1 version.

- Alternate Universe: The first of many.
- Ambiguous Situation: After the Crisis, it is currently unknown how many of Earth-2s inhabitants still exist (or are still similar to their pre-Crisis selves) following the rearrangement of the multiverse creating a new superhero history on that world.
- Apocalypse Wow: Earth-2 is the first casualty of the Crisis as shown in Arrow's Season 8 premiere, where it gets disintegrated by an antimatter wave.
- Art Deco: Everything (architecture, interior and graphic designs, fashion) in this Earth looks like a futuristic early-mid 20th century.
- Atlantis: Not only is it real, but it was never lost. Zoom mentions he has a friend there, presumably Aquaman.
- Back for the Dead: After years of being unseen, Earth-2 makes a return in Arrow's season 8 premiere as the first casualty of the Crisis.
- Bus Crash: The Wellses family have been absent for a while when Earth-2 gets destroyed. Barry learns the universe's destruction and assumes that they don't make it.
- Color Wash: Every scene taking place on Earth-2 while daytime has a golden tint to it, to easily distinguish it from Earth-1. This is subverted in the Starling City side featured in the Arrow Season 8 premiere where it's pretty much an indistinguishable carbon copy with subtle differences, even though a flash back to Laurel's backstory shown in the previous season shows a gray tint in night time.
- Composite Character:
- In the comics, Earth-2 is a world dominantly inhabited by superheroes, while Earth-3 is the one inhabited by supervillains. This version appears to combine the two, but it's clear that it has more Earth-3 influence, since "Jay Garrick" as The Flash and Robert Queen as The Arrow are the only acknowledged heroes, and the former is a fraud anyway. Just like Earth-3 it also ends up being the first casualty of the Crisis.
- It also integrates elements from the FlashPoint timeline, such as the Green Arrow being Robert Queen instead of Oliver, which is inspired by Thomas Wayne being Batman.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Several, both introduced with one or ultimately became one themselves.
- This world's Oliver Queen, Adam Fells, Quentin Lance and Thea Queen are already posthumous characters when their counterparts from Earths 1 and X were introduced, while this world's Joe West, Francisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow, Martin Stein (somehow), Clay Parker, Dante Ramon were all ultimately killed shortly or just a few episodes after their respective introductions.
- Inversions are the Earth-2 versions of Harrison Wells (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart, then eventually also a dead Earth-19 counterpart), Robert Queen (indirectly introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Dinah Laurel Lance (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Ronnie Raymond (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Shay Lamden (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Al Rothstein (killed his own Earth-1 counterpart), Floyd Lawton (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Nora Allen (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Henry Allen (eventually has a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Damien Darhk (whose Earth-1 counterpart has already died twice whereas his fate remains unknown), Moira Queen (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart), Malcolm Merlyn (introduced with a dead Earth-1 counterpart) and Tommy Merlyn (introduced with dead Earths 1 and X counterparts).
- Sara Lance and Cisco Ramon are interesting cases. Their main Earth-1 counterparts have been killed twice by the end of 2015 before getting resurrected both times in the same year (Cisco's first via Barry's first Cosmic Retcon, Sara's first via Lazarus Pit, both's second via Barry's second Cosmic Retcon) while Sara and Cisco's respective Earths X and 22 counterparts are posthumous characters by early 2018.
- The Anti-Monitor destroys Earth-2 in the Season 8 premiere of Arrow. Except for Laurel, nobody survives the destruction and eventual reconstruction of the multiverse.
- Demoted to Extra: Earth-2 is the very first Alternate Universe introduced when the Arrowverse debuted the concept of The Multiverse. Then Supergirl premiered not long after and was eventually made part of The Multiverse as Earth-38, followed shortly by The Flash (later designated Earth-90) also being integrated, all before Earth-2 even made a proper appearance. Then the fourth annual Crossover, Crisis on Earth-X, introduces the titular Alternate Universe which became the setting of Freedom Fighters: The Ray. Over time, Earth-2 is only ever touched upon again when characters (specifically Team Flash) visit or Harry Wells, Jesse Quick and Black Siren talk about their respective lives. The universe is also the first casualty of the Crisis. After the Crisis, however, this trope is finally averted, as it becomes the setting for Stargirl.
- Diesel Punk: This Earth's Central City seems to be built around this aesthetic, specifically the Decopunk variation.
- Epic Fail: Hunter Zolomon was able to fool the entirety of Earth-2 with his superhero alias, despite being a well-known criminal with his face all over the media without even wearing a mask. How? By cutting his hair and not regrowing his beard.
- Everybody's Dead, Dave: The Anti-Monitor destroys Earth-2 in the Season 8 premiere of Arrow, leaving Dinah Laurel Lance, Shay Lamden, and Linda Park as the only survivors, as Laurel is taken by Earth-1 Oliver and Diggle back to their universe while Shay and Linda have been taking refuge there since 2015. The Earth-2 that appeared is a different Earth altogether, while elements from this Earth were sent to Earth-Prime.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Most of the characters here are Evil Counterparts to their Earth-1 counterparts, as was the case with Al Rothstein, Linda Park, Cap. Singh, Caitlin Snow, Ronnie Raymond, Cisco and Dante Ramon, and Laurel Lance (at least at first), while Felicity Smoak is said to be ruthless. The Harrison Wells of this Earth is more Anti Heroic than his (real) counterpart than outright evil, though.
- Evil Me Scares Me: The Earth-1 versions of Linda Park, Caitlin Snow, and Cisco Ramon are pretty unsettled to discover criminal versions of themselves from an Alternate Universe.
- Expendable Alternate Universe:
- Deconstructed in that Zoom's army have this view towards the Earth-1 universe, which makes them remorseless about killing the Flash, and even their alternate selves, to get home.
- And while the characters on Earth-1 certainly don't consider Earth-2 to be this, the writers seem to treat Earth-2 this way to some extent considering the number of counterparts killed off. The Earth-2 versions of Joe, Cisco, Ronnie, Stein, and Caitlin are all offed (mostly by Zoom) in a pretty short period of time.
- Earth-2 is the first casualty of the Crisis.
- Foil: Most characters from this world tend to be Shadow Archetypes, if not an outright Evil Doppelgänger, to their respective Earth-1 counterparts, as well as the other way around.
- For Want of a Nail:
- Because Nora did not get murdered by Eobard, Henry was never imprisoned. As a result, Barry did not become adopted by Joe because his parents are still around, although the Allen and West families are close to each other, with Barry marrying Iris cementing this.
- Oliver died during the sinking of the Queen's Gambit, while Robert survived. Robert ended up being the one who experienced Oliver's tribulations in Lian Yu and returned to Starling City as the Hood. It's also implied that this caused Thea's death of drug overdose as well as Tommy becoming the Dark Arrow.
- Sara did not board the Queen's Gambit and apparently never had a tryst with Oliver. As a result, she has a healthy relationship with Laurel, who helps her raise her child.
- Hero of Another Story: Earth-2 is the fifth most developed part of The Multiverse within the Arrowverse after Earths 1, 38, 90, and X. This universe also produced four major characters (Harry Wells, Dinah Laurel Lance, Jesse Quick and Hunter Zolomon / Black Flash), one recurring (Shay Lamden), and a number of characters with potential to be either one (Linda Park, Solovar, Barry Allen, Iris West-Allen, Floyd Lawton, etc.) despite not having a show set on it like the four universes mentioned.
- In-Series Nickname: To avoid the One Steve Limit below. For instance, the Harrison Wells from this world is called Harry by the characters from Earth-1.
- In Spite of a Nail:
- Earth-2 seems very different than Earth-1. Despite this, they have people with the exact same names and faces as those in Earth-1.
- Harrison Wells' particle accelerator still caused a number of people to become metahumans (of course, here it was the real Wells, the empowering event was an actual accident, and the incident was nowhere near as destructive as on Earth-1).
- Ronnie Raymond and Martin Stein still fused into a version of Firestorm.
- CCPD still has a Great Detective West (read: Iris). For the matter, Barry is still the department's premiere forensic scientist.
- Cisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow and Ronnie Raymond still found themselves working for the evil speedster, except in this Earth they did it willingly.
- Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow are still working with a speedster.
- Despite the different context, Floyd Lawton still ends up working with guns and earning himself the moniker "Deadshot" because of it.
- Despite the absence of Leonard Snart and Mick Rory (the former is even implied to be the City Mayor), an Evil Duo using ice and fire are still terrorizing Central City.
- A parental figure of Barry still dies. For the matter, one of Iris' parents still dies, assuming that Earth-2 Francine West didn't suffer the same fate as her Earth-1 counterpart.
- Hunter Zolomon still finds himself with a Missing Mom and being sent to foster care as a result. Of course, this is assuming that he is telling the truth regarding his Earth-1 counterpart.
- Caitlin Snow and Ronnie Raymond are still married and she still ends up as a widow, at least for a while.
- Barring the Cosmic Retcon, Cisco is still killed by the evil speedster. In the exact same manner, no less.
- Harrison Wells' wife still died on this earth although unlike her Earth-1 counterpart, her death wasn't caused by an evil speedster as far as we kno).
- Caitlin Snow was still raised by an Evil Matriarch, and their fallout is caused by the death of a male family member.
- An evil speedster ends up impersonating someone outside of their own world. On Earth-1, Eobard Thawne came from the future and ended up killing and replacing Dr. Harrison Wells. Here, Hunter Zolomon travels to Earth-3, kidnaps Jay Garrick, and uses the latter's identity to pose as a hero.
- A supervillain named the Mirror Master exists.
- Oliver Queen and Dinah Laurel Lance still became a couple, and one of them still ended up dying.
- Damien Darhk is still a notorious criminal.
- Quentin Lance still ended up dying.
- Killed Offscreen: When Earth-2 is destroyed, only Moira Queen, Tommy Merlyn, Dinah Drake and Rene Ramirez are shown disintegrating.
- Left-Handed Mirror: A case of Informed Ability. Black Siren mentions that all doppelgangers are this, but herself, Killer Frost, and Reverb are all cross-dominants than outright southpaws.
- Mass Super-Empowering Event: The metahumans got their powers from Earth-2 Dr. Wells' Particle Accelerator, which was much more low key than it's Earth-1 counterpart, as it exploded underground rather than above. (with the possible exception of Zoom, who only mentions his own Freak Lab Accident). Despite that, presuming he didn't gather them from across the world, Zoom has an army of metahumans at his disposal.
- Mirror Universe: Despite being based on comic book Earth-2 (the Zeerust aesthetic and Golden Age equivalents), it also has more than a few elements borrowed from Earth-3, namely evil counterparts to good people and vice-versa. Zoom's gang in particular feels like a scaled-down version of the Crime Syndicate of America (Earth-3's Evil Counterpart to the Justice League) complete with counterparts to Linda (Dr. Light), Caitlin (Killer Frost), Ronnie (Deathstorm), Cisco (Reverb), and Laurel (Black Siren).
- Monster of the Week: Majority of the metahumans during The Flash Season 2. The most notable exceptions are Zoom and Killer Frost.
- One Steve Limit: They share the names of their Earth-1 counterparts.
- Ret-Gone: Destroyed during the Crisis and never reconstituted again. The only survivor of the carnage is Dinah Laurel Lance. Its designation is given to the setting of Stargirl.
- Retro Universe: This world uses both modern-day and futuristic apps, but everyone's clothing are ranges from the 1920s up to the 1950s. However, the outfits of Zoom's gang suggest that it's only Central City who chooses to live with this aesthetic, which the final season of Arrow more or less confirms.
- Rogues Gallery Transplant: Some of them aren't/weren't enemies of The Flash in canon.
- Sacrificial Lion: Earth-2 was the most heavily focused Earth outside of Earth-38, with a great deal of time spent there and by far the most number of characters introduced. It also ends up as the first casualty of the Crisis when it returns in Arrow Season 8.
- Schizo Tech: Central City in particular has the fashion and aesthetics of the early-mid 20th century. But make no mistake, they are very technologically advanced.
- Sharp-Dressed Man: Majority of the males are dressed in a suit.
- Supervillain Lair: Zoom's is located on a mountain past a forest.
- Uniqueness Decay: Back then, the existence of another Earth was a huge deal in the Arrowverse. Nowadays, there are dozens of them, and new ones keep constantly popping up.
- Walking Spoiler: Their entire existence if you haven't seen Season One of The Flash. Also it's destruction if you haven't seen the Arrow final season premiere.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Most of the meta-humans went Ax-Crazy with their powers, causing chaos and destruction.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Laurel, Shay, and Linda have this when Earth-2 gets destroyed by the Anti-Monitor. Though it comes back after the Crisis, it's unknown if it is the same Earth-2 as before.
- Zeerust: Deliberately invoked. Although the year is the same as on "our" Earth, the buildings and vehicles are Art Deco 1920s/1930s in appearance, most of the civilian fashions (especially women) look to be from the 1940s/1950s, and Hunter Zolomon's "Jay Garrick" costume looks like a 1930s/1940s pulp adventurer's outfit with the leather jacket and a helmet design (stated to have originally been his father's combat helmet) taken out of American Army service prior to World War II. These trend seems to be a Central City thing, however, as notorious criminals such as Deathstorm, Killer Frost and Reverb as well as the entire Starling City residents are shown with modern clothing.
Al Rothstein / Atom Smasher
Known Alias: Atom Smasher
Played By: Adam Copeland
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman who has the ability to absorb atomic radiation, resulting in super strength and durability and the ability to radically change size.
- Adaptational Villainy: Normally portrayed as a hero and member of the Justice Society of America.
- And Starring: Gets this billing in the guest stars lineup.
- Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: He can grow himself to be as tall as a building if he wants to.
- The Brute: He's quite tall (6'4), very muscular (played by a decorated wrestler to boot), has powers to increase his size, and always goes for the offensive.
- Celebrity Paradox: The Highlander franchise was acknowledged by Cisco to exist in the Arrowverse. His actor appeared as a Mook in Highlander: Endgame.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Eobard Thawne mentioned him in Season One as one of the casualties of the Particle Accelerator explosion. However, in Season Two, he's said to have been away on his honeymoon when it happened, so they believe he couldn't have become a metahuman.
- Cool Mask: Much like his comic counterpart.
- Death by Adaptation: His comic counterpart is still alive and a member of the Justice League. This version didn't live long enough to reform.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Killed his Earth-1 counterpart for no valid reason, as he's not even attempting to Kill and Replace him.
- Evil Sounds Deep: To the point where he sounds like he's growling at Barry.
- Killing Your Alternate Self: Murders his Earth-1 counterpart for no reason.
- There's No Place Like Home: The only reason he tried to kill Barry is because Zoom said he would bring him back to his world if he did.
- Not Quite Dead: He first appears as a murder victim. Atom Smasher's actually from a parallel world, and Zoom brought him into this one to kill the Flash. It's implied Atom Smasher killed his own counterpart.
- Shout-Out: His first physical appearance, wearing a dark mask and black trench coat, is very reminiscent of Bane from The Dark Knight Rises.
- Sizeshifter: Can grow in size by absorbing radiation.
- Sleeves Are for Wimps: Much like his comic counterpart, he wears a sleeveless costume.
- Starter Villain: He's the very first Monster of the Week for Season Two.
- Super Strength: Even at his normal size, he's extraordinarily strong.
Eddie Slick / Sand Demon
Known Alias: Sand Demon
Played By: Kett Turton
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman able to transform his cells into a sand-like substance.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: Pretty much DC's version of Sandman.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: To his Dirty Coward Earth-1 counterpart, who doesn't seem to care.
- Death by Adaptation: Barry kills him with his lightning attack.
- Dishing Out Dirt: Cosmetically, since he doesn't truly turn into sand.
- Elemental Shapeshifter: Can dissolve and reform at will, and use his power for offense and defense.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Downplayed. While his Earth-1 counterpart is also a criminal, he's more willing to get his hands dirty. His counterpart is more or less a Dirty Coward.
- Literally Shattered Lives: After Barry turns him into glass, he falls back shattering into pieces.
- One Steve Limit: Averted. He shares his first name with Eddie Thawne of Season One.
- Red Herring: Has a counterpart on the main Earth (Earth-1) who is powerless, like Atom Smasher. The other Slick is mistaken for him and arrested, but it's ruled out that he's a metahuman since he wasn't in the city when the Particle Accelerator exploded.
- Rogues Gallery Transplant: In the comicbooks, he's a Firestorm villain.
- Taken for Granite: He's turned into glass by Flash's lightning strike.
Linda Park / Doctor Light
Known Aliases: Dr. Light
Played By: Malese Jow
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman that can draw power from starlight. She is the Earth-2 counterpart of Linda Park.
- Adaptational Early Appearance: The female Dr. Light debuted in Crisis on Infinite Earths. This version debuted three years before the Arrowverse adaptation of the event. Complicating matters further, Kimiyo Hoshi herself shows up as Doctor Light after the Crisis.
- Adaptational Nationality: As a result of being a Composite Character, she's now of Korean descent instead of Japanese.
- Adaptational Villainy: She is, though an Anti-Villain who does not kill, still a criminal. There are two Doctors Light in the comics, and the one this version is based on is a hero.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's quite rigid.
- Anti-Villain: All she wants is to be free of Zoom. Even before he brought her to Earth-1, she'd never killed anyone, and is horrified when she accidentally does so.
- Badass in Distress: She was briefly imprisoned on S.T.A.R. Labs on Earth-1 until she escapes Team Flash.
- Badass Longcoat: She has a labcoat styled one as part of her costume. During her climatic fight with Barry, she wears a more traditional one.
- Beauty Is Bad: Is the Earth-2 doppelgänger of Linda Park, a girl who was lovely enough to divert Barry's attentions from Iris for a little while.
- Bus Crash: While she avoided the destruction of Earth-2 due to not being there, she did not survive the destruction of the multiverse.
- Composite Character: She has the costume and abilities of Kimiyo Hoshi, but her civilian identity is Linda Park, leading to quite a shock for Barry when he first confronts her. She's also a villain like the original Doctor Light. And then, the Kimiyo Hoshi herself shows up as Doctor Light in Season 6.
- Cool Helmet: Part of her costume. Removing it makes a Dramatic Unmask for The Reveal she's Linda Park's Alternate Self, the first for any prominent Arrowverse character.
- Dark Action Girl: Zig-Zagged. She doesn't hesitate to cause chaos, but she usually has a strong Thou Shall Not Kill code.
- Even Evil Has Standards: She's only a thief who had never killed anyone before Zoom got to her, and is horrified when she does it accidentally.
- Everybody's Dead, Dave: With Earth-2 destroyed by the Anti-Monitor, she becomes one of its few survivors along with Dinah Laurel Lance / Black Canary and Shay Lamden / King Shark.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Downplayed. She's more of a desperate Anti-Villain than outright evil and views her attempted Kill and Replace of Earth-1 Linda as a Shoot the Dog.
- Glass Cannon: Her stats are slightly higher than Killer Frost's. Like her, Dr. Light's powers manifest in a fast rate, enabling her to perform multiple and continuous attacks, and they all hit their targets quickly. Unlike her, however, she has better rate at hitting speedster opponents, and her Hard Light causes more damage to her targets. She can also create blinding lights for defensive purposes, and is more durable than her note physically.
- Godzilla Threshold: Light's fear of Zoom is apparently strong enough to overwhelm her aversion to killing people. She doesn't go after the Flash as ordered, but she is willing to Kill and Replace Earth-1's Linda to get away from Zoom.
- Hard Light: Her powers allow her to create hard light and laser constructs.
- I Just Want to Be Free: The chaos she causes on Earth-1 and her Kill and Replace attempt on her counterpart are fueled by her desperation to escape from Zoom's clutches.
- Invisibility: She can do it with light.
- Invisible Streaker: It isn't really brought up, but she leaves her clothes behind in her escape. Conveniently leaving them for Earth-1 Linda to play her.
- Ironic Name: For a woman named "Light", her power causes (temporary) blindness.
- Kill and Replace: Attempts this on her Earth-1 counterpart in order to try and hide from Zoom.
- Killing Your Alternate Self: Attempted (see above), but was luckily stopped before she could succeed.
- Lifesaving Misfortune: Zoom bringing her out from her hometown and her inability to come back to Earth-2 ends up saving her life when Earth-2 gets disintegrated by antimatter.
- Light 'em Up: She draws power from starlight. She can create blinding flashes and make lasers strong enough to cut through bank walls.
- Light Is Not Good: Literally. Though she's more of a desperate Anti-Villain than outright evil.
- Meaningful Name: Aside from her obvious light-based powers, she is the Token Good Teammate of Zoom and his associates.
- My God, What Have I Done?: She's clearly horrified when she accidentally kills a man.
- Noble Demon: She's a thief but she does not kill her victims, and is visibly upset over her Accidental Murder of her Earth-1 counterpart's boss.
- Power Palms: How she channels her powers. Draws energy from starlight, directs it as a beam attack through her palm. Sometimes as a poorly explained area attack.
- Rogues Gallery Transplant: The Doctor Light that she is based on is a hero, but the original villainous Doctor Light is a Teen Titans villain.
- Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: She makes every effort to just skip town and put as much distance as possible between her and Zoom rather than kill the Flash as ordered.
- Shoot the Dog: How she views her Kill and Replace attempt on her Earth-1 counterpart, as she views it necessary to escape from Zoom's clutches.
- Thou Shall Not Kill: She personally wants to avoid killing. Unfortunately, Zoom's threat is so bad that it pushes her to consider to Kill and Replace her Earth-1 counterpart just to escape his clutches.
- Token Good Teammate: The most moral of Zoom and his associates.
- Trapped in Another World: Is taking refuge at Earth-1 after being defeated by Barry. Due to this, she dodged a bullet.
- Uncertain Doom: Her current status is unknown after the merging of most Earths and the creation of the new multiverse.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: While the team makes a brief effort to find her after she escapes, once they've developed an alternative plan to lure Zoom, they seem to forget all about Doctor Light.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Earth-2 was destroyed by the Anti-Monitor while she's taking refuge in Earth-1.
Adam Fells / Geomancer
Known Aliases: Geomancer
Played By: Adam Stafford
A metahuman with the ability to create earthquakes.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: For his Earth-1 counterpart who is more or less like him.
- Dishing Out Dirt: His power is to create earthquakes.
- In Spite of a Nail: According to Hunter Zolomon (in his "Jay Garrick" persona), he was exactly like his Earth-1 counterpart.
- Posthumous Character: Is long dead by the start of the series.
Caitlin Snow / Killer Frost
Known Aliases: Killer Frost
Played By: Danielle Panabaker
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman with ice powers who, with her husband and literal partner-in-crime Ronnie Raymond aka Deathstorm, works for Zoom. She is the Earth-2 counterpart of Caitlin Snow.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In the comics, the Caitlin Snow version of Killer Frost has the most menacing appearance. This version has a very feminine appearance akin to the Crystal Frost and Louise Lincoln versions.

- Adaptational Wimp: Is injured by a wayward blast from Deathstorm, while in the comics she can absorb heat.
- Adaptational Villainy: While her Earth 1 counterpart was a case of Adaptational Heroism, this version who is the true Killer Frost is much less sympathetic than her comic book counterpart. In the comics, Killer Frost was a heat vampire, who was driven to villainy by her powers, and was seeking a cure for her condition. In the show she kills and terrorizes civilians for the fun of it, though granted she is under the command of Zoom who would kill her should she disobey.
- Alliterative Family: Caitlin, Carla, and Charlie.
- Asshole Victim: Zoom kills her after she attempted to kill Caitlin. Since the attempt happened after Caitlin worked hard to free her from her cell, it's hard to feel sorry for her.

- Battle Couple: She and Deathstorm usually fight together.
- Beauty Is Bad: A beautiful girl whose heart is as cold as her powers.
- Celebrity Paradox:
- Cisco is seen wearing a Jason Voorhees T-shirt during the middle of The Flash Season 4. Her actress famously played the Decoy Protagonist in the 2009 remake.
- A Villain of the Week in Season 2 mentions the Law & Order franchise. Her actress guest starred on Law & Order: SVU twice as two different characters.
- Chekhov's Gunman: Her appearance was alluded to in the Flash Season One finale, and her encounter with her Earth-1 counterpart ultimately serves as a cautionary tale of sorts for the latter when she started to develop the exact same powers.
- Chewing the Scenery: Danielle Panabaker portrays her in glorious Cold Ham fashion (possibly with no Puns intended, unlike Captain Cold).
- Civvie Spandex: She wears a dark blue leather jacket, corset, and leather pants.
- Cold Ham: Excusing the Incredibly Lame Pun, she speaks in a very "theatrical subdued" manner.
- Combat Medic: While she mentioned that she flunked med school, she didn't specified if she actually failed at admissions or if she just flunked at the board exams. Either way, she implies that she at least finished pre-med, meaning she has some medical training.
- Combat Stilettos: She is sporting mid-heeled boots in combat.

- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Ultimately to Caitlin, with the irony that she died while trying to kill her.

- Evil Feels Good:Frost: It's so much more fun to be bad.
- Evil Is Deathly Cold: An ice-based supervillain.
- Evil Is Hammy: Danielle Panabaker is Chewing the Scenery with Cold Ham.
- Faux Affably Evil: She exhibits a playful demeanor around her victims. She's perfectly happy to kill them regardless.
- Foreshadowing: The story of her transformation to Killer Frost is essentially her Earth-1 counterpart's Story Arc for the following season.
- Fire/Ice Duo: Played straight with Deathstorm. They're metahumans with powers of fire and ice, with the two of them being Happily Married as supervillains.
- Fragile Speedster: Her ice powers rarely hits hard unlike the powers of her husband, Reverb, Rupture or Black Siren, and she herself is prone to attacks. However, said powers manifest in a fast rate, enabling her to perform multiple and continuous attacks (particularly her ice shards), and they all hit their targets quickly unless it's a speedster.
- Happily Married: She and Deathstorm, despite being murderous villains, seem very happy together.
- Hazy Feel Turn: She helps team Flash find Zoom after the death of her husband Deathstorm]], but it's unknown whether she truly wants to help them out the goodness in her heart or if she just hates Zoom for what he's done to her. Subverted when she tries to kill Caitlin.

- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Zoom stabs her with her own ice shard.
- In Spite of a Nail: She ended up a widow like her Earth-1 counterpart. Also, both her and her mother's fallout were caused by the death of a male family member.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Bet you thought that the Ice Queen was starting to warm up after she helped Team Flash out. She loses all sympathy when she attempts to kill Caitlin For the Evulz.
- Karmic Death: She's stabbed by one of her own ice shards that she shot at Caitlin.
- Killing Your Alternate Self: Attempted, but it quickly leads to her Karmic Death above.
- Kill It with Ice: She fights using her ice based powers.
- Meaningful Name: A woman named Snow with ice powers.
- Mystical White Hair: She has white hair and has ice powers.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Seriously, Killer Frost.
- Not So Different:
- Cisco tries to play her similarities with her Earth-1 counterpart so she can lead them to Zoom. She complied for her own reasons.
- Both she and Caitlin have an abusive mother which they learn when they were imprisoned by Zoom. Both of them thinks she's a bitch.
- Of Corsets Sexy: She's wearing a blue corset under her leather jacket.
- Only Sane Woman: In her debut episode, she's the only one of Zoom's minions who realizes that trying to kill the Flash, in violation of Zoom's orders, is a bad idea. This ends up saving her life, while Deathstorm and Reverb aren't so lucky.
- Other Me Annoys Me: She thinks her Earth-1 counterpart is a boring prude.

- Related in the Adaptation: Much like their Earth-1 counterparts, this version of Ronnie Raymond and Caitlin Snow are married. They're enemies in the comics, but not without the Foe Romance Subtext.
- Replacement Goldfish: It is implied that the reason Zoom didn't kill her after her betrayal was because she looks like Earth-1 Caitlin. Once he kidnaps Caitlin, Zoom has no qualms at all about gutting Frost.
- Rogues Gallery Transplant: Killer Frost is typically a Firestorm villain, while here she's Happily Married to a version of Firestorm and faces off against the Flash.
- Small Role, Big Impact: She only appears for three episodes, but she leaves a major impact as she foreshadowed what Earth-1's Caitlin became.
- Split-Personality Takeover: It's implied that, instead of wanting to mutually live with Caitlin, this version of Frost both yearned for and attained full control, which in turn makes her a Distaff Counterpart to her husband.
- That Man Is Dead: Implied as she hates being referred to by her birth name.
- Tragic Drop Out: She flunked out of Medical School, in contrast to her Earth-1 Counterpart.
- Uncertain Doom: The last time we see her she's holding back Zoom to buy Team Flash time to escape. However, we see that Zoom eventually got past her. "Back To Normal" reveals that Zoom spared her, not that it lasts.

Species: Metahuman note
Known Alias: Deathstorm
Played By: Robbie Amell
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman with fire powers who, along with his wife and literal partner-in-crime Caitlin Snow aka Killer Frost, works for Zoom. He is the Earth-2 counterpart of the (apparently) late Ronnie Raymond.
- Adaptational Attractiveness: In the comics, Deathstorm has a skull face with Flaming Hair ala Ghost Rider. This version retains the Tall, Dark, and Handsome appearance of his actor.
- Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, Deathstorm eventually regained his senses. This version is confirmed by Word of God as Ronnie's Evil Twin.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Deathstorm's fire powers in the comics are black and blue. Here, it's regular fire like Firestorm's.
- Adaptation Species Change: Metahuman instead of undead.
- Alliterative Name: Ronnie Raymond.
- And Starring: Is credited with "Special Guest Star" citations.
- Asshole Victim: Is offed by Zoom near the end of his debut episode. Considering what he did to Stein and the fact that he was trying to kill Barry at the time, it's hard to feel very sorry for him.
- Battle Couple: He and Killer Frost usually fight together.
- Beauty Is Bad: A Tall, Dark, and Snarky supervillain, not to mention having fire based powers.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted and then played with. He showed up alive and well nearly a year after his Earth-1 counterpart made his Heroic Sacrifice, but then at the end of his debut episode, Earth-2 Ronnie is dead as well.
- Death by Adaptation: Ironically, Deathstorm is Ronnie in the comics after he Came Back Wrong. But unlike in the comics where he regained his self, Zoom offed him here.
- Decomposite Character: In the comics, Deathstorm is Ronnie after he Came Back Wrong. This version is instead confirmed to be Ronnie's Alternate Self.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He clearly loves Killer Frost, abandoning a fight with Barry after she is injured.
- Evil Doppelgänger: For Ronnie, and the first introduced for any Arrowverse superhero (Earth-1 Caitlin has yet to gain her powers).
- Evil Is Burning Hot: A fire-based supervillain.
- Evil Wears Black: He's clad in a black outfit. Suffice to say, he's evil.
- Fire/Ice Duo: Played straight with Killer Frost. They're metahumans with powers of fire and ice, with the two of them being Happily Married as supervillains.
- Flying Firepower: Much like the Firestorms from the main universe, he can fly using his fire-based powers.
- Fusion Dance: Much like the Firestorm from the main universe. Unlike them, however, they never reconciled and one ended up trapping the other inside to the very end.
- Happily Married: Surprisingly enough, he and Killer Frost are very happy together.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: He's wearing an overall leather outfit.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Zoom skewers him with a vibrating hand for disobeying his orders.
- In Name Only: Comics Deathstorm was the main universe Ronnie Raymond resurrected as an undead Black Lantern, this version is an Alternate Universe Evil Doppelgänger of the main Firestorm.
- Jack-of-All-Stats: He is a powerful metahuman with seemingly balanced fighting stats. While he obviously can't keep up with a speedster, he can keep up immediately if the speedster stops just for a few seconds (as seen in his first battle with Barry). His powers also hit hard, but not as hard as Reverb's, Rupture's or Black Siren's. He's also quite durable as he was never knocked down by Barry in a straight-up fight (and Zoom only killed him via a surprise vibrating hand In the Back).
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Seriously, Deathstorm.
- Outlaw Couple: Word of God describes him and Killer Frost as "the Metahuman Bonnie and Clyde".
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: He traps Martin Stein inside of him just so he can gain full access to the Firestorm matrix's powers.
- Related in the Adaptation: Much like their Earth-1 counterparts, this version of Ronnie Raymond and Caitlin Snow are married. They're enemies in the comics, but not without the Foe Romantic Subtext.
- Split-Personality Takeover: Ronnie eventually dominates the Firestorm matrix and traps Stein in his head.
- Stuffed in the Fridge: His death is what made Killer Frost to turn on Zoom.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: Like Ronnie, he stands 5'11.
- Tall, Dark, and Snarky: Think of Earth-1 Ronnie, but very abrasive and lacking every single one of the former's positive traits.
- Two First Names: Much like his Earth-1 counterpart.
- Unholy Matrimony: With Caitlin/Killer Frost.
- Villainous Fashion Sense: He's a supervillain dressed in an elegant Diesel Punk clothing.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Zoom kills him near the end of his debut episode.
Species: MetahumanA metahuman that was once half of Deathstorm, though Ronnie has permanently locked him away. He is the Earth-2 counterpart of Prof. Martin Stein.
- Adaptational Heroism: Usually, the Martin Stein Deathstorm is a madman possessing a corpse; here, he is evidently a victim kept suppressed by Ronnie.
- And I Must Scream: Ronnie permanently keeps him locked away in his head, and he doesn't talk anymore. Fortunately for him, Deathstorm's demise means he is released.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: To the main (Earth-1) Martin Stein, though it's unlikely that he knows about him. The Earth-1 Stein himself dies nearly two years later.
- Despair Event Horizon: He's been trapped inside Ronnie for so long that he lost all hope. Deathstorm's death at least frees him.
- Fate Worse than Death: He's locked inside the mind and body of a psychopath for years. Even after they die, he didn't even leave a corpse for his family to mourn (if he had a family at all).
- The Ghost: He is present, but since Ronnie locked him away, he is never seen or heard.
- No Body Left Behind: Ronnie traps him in his head. And with Deathstorm's death, he dies along with Ronnie but without leaving a corpse.
- Powered by a Forsaken Child: He is essentially (and literally) just a power source for Ronnie.
- Punch-Clock Villain: We don't actually know if he's evil or not, but nonetheless, Ronnie traps him in his mind so he can gain full access to the Firestorm matrix's power.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: All we learned was that he was kept locked away in Ronnie's mind before dying.
Known Alias: Reverb
Played By: Carlos Valdes
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman supervillain who works with Zoom who can see the "vibrations" between The Multiverse. He is the Earth-2 counterpart of Cisco Ramon.
- Adaptational Villainy: Reverb is the identity of Cisco's eldest brother in the comics who becomes a superhero to honor his memory.
- A God Am I: Earth-2 Cisco says that he and his counterpart could be gods with their powers.
- Alliterative Family: Reverb and Rupture.
- Arrogant Kung-Fu Guy: Knows full well how powerful he is. Unfortunately, Zoom is both faster (in every sense of the word) and physically stronger.
- Break the Haughty: He shows off a very arrogant nature, and even suggests betraying Zoom. All that confidence disappears fast when Zoom actually shows up.
- Co-Dragons: Black Siren implies that they share the position of Zoom's Dragon.
- Cold Ham: Like Caitlin, he talks in a theatrically subdued manner.
- Composite Character: Reverb is the identity of Cisco's (and Dante's) brother Armando in the New Earth continuity.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Ultimately to Cisco/Vibe, but due to his nature, he doesn't feel that sorry for him. This also applies to his Earths X and 19 counterpart.
- Death by Adaptation: Played with. Reverb is not killed in the comics, but Cisco was.
- Death by Irony: He was killed by Zoom in the exact same manner Cisco was killed by Eobard Thawne during a negated timeline in Season One.
- Decomposite Character: In the comics, he was known as the villain Rupture prior to his HeelFace Turn. Here, Rupture is his older brother.
- Dimensional Traveler: His power allows him to create portals that serves as Extra Dimensional Shortcuts to any part of The Multiverse.
- The Dragon: He presumably uses his powers to monitor activities on Earth-1 for Zoom.
- The Dreaded: Not to the level of Zoom, but he can scare Deathstorm and Killer Frost (two certified killers) into working for him.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He and his brother clearly care for each other, and he is out on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge for him. This is a stark contrast to their Earth-1 counterparts, who initially had a very long beef and only recently mended their relationship.
- Evil Doppelgänger: For Cisco.
- Evil Sounds Deep: His voice is noticeably deeper and more resonant than Earth-1 Cisco's.
- Faux Affably Evil: Almost sounds like Earth-1 Cisco at times, but threatens to kill you in the next second.
- For Want of a Nail: Unlike Cisco and Dante on Earth-1, he and Rupture are really close. It takes Zoom killing Rupture for Cisco and Dante to reflect on their turbulent relationship and mend it for good.
- Glass Cannon: He is a very powerful metahuman but is prone to attacks.
- Guyliner: Cisco mocks him for his affinity of wearing these.
- Hell-Bent for Leather: He's wearing an overall leather outfit.
- Mirror Match: He eventually fights Cisco.
- Other Me Annoys Me: Double Subverted. Initially he seems to like his Earth-1 counterpart, even suggesting that they team-up to take out Zoom and be Multiversal Conquerors, but after the latter turns him down, Reverb immediately displays a You Have Failed Me or/and You Have Outlived Your Usefulness attitude.
- Seers: Unlike Cisco, he can do it voluntarily. He watched Earth-1 Cisco for a while and saw him come to Earth-2 even before he went through the breach.
- Siblings in Crime: With his older brother Rupture.
- Sinister Shades: His Cool Shades looks more slick than Cisco's.
- Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: Unlike Killer Frost's and Deathstorm's Wolverine Publicity for the Earth-2 episodes, he didn't appear in any promotional material to keep his appearance a surprise.
- Slipknot Ponytail: Dons his hairstyle like a Samurai as Cisco (mockingly) puts it.
- Small Role, Big Impact: He did not make it out alive past his introduction episode, but his encounter with Cisco is enough for the latter to realize the potentials that his powers have.
- Smug Smiler: Is sporting an overconfident grin when he first met Cisco.
- Smug Snake: He's extremely confident, even expressing a desire to overthrow Zoom. This falls apart in a hurry when Zoom shows up.
- The Southpaw: Apparently he is left-handed, though his only appearance shows him as ambidextrous or at least cross-dominant.
- The Starscream : He tries to take over Zoom's operation... and then gets a vibrating hand for his troubles.
- Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
- Villainous Fashion Sense: He's a supervillain dressed in an elegant Decopunk clothing.
- We Can Rule Together: He tries to win over his Earth-1 counterpart, telling him that he can teach him the full extent of his powers.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Zoom kills him near the end of his debut episode.
Dante Ramon / Rupture
Known Aliases: Rupture
Played By: Nicholas Gonzalez
Appearances: The Flash
A metahuman who can manifest a scythe and shoots energy blasts from it. Much like in Earth-1, he is the older brother of Cisco.
- Adaptational Badass: In a way. His comic counterpart is mainly the Badass Normal of the Ramon brothers. Here, he has metahuman superpowers.
- Adaptational Villainy: His comic counterpart ultimately reformed to be Reverb after Cisco's death. He was never able to reform because Zoom killed him.
- Adaptation Species Change: Dante is usually The Team Normal of the Ramon brothers. Here, he's a metahuman.
- Age Lift: In the comics, he and Cisco are around the same age. Here, he's clearly older and their actors' ages are 13 years apart.

- Alliterative Family: Rupture and Reverb.
- Avenging the Villain: He is out on a Roaring Rampage of Revenge for Reverb's murder.
- Beauty Is Bad: It may surprise those who get a peek, that underneath that menacing mask lies a boyishly handsome face.
- Composite Character: In the comics, Rupture is the villainous identity of his and Cisco's eldest brother Armando.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: To main Dante. Seeing him die is what finally triggered his reconciliation with Cisco. Unfortunately, Barry causes a Cosmic Retcon that results to main Dante's death, but that's a different story.
- Decomposite Character: In the comics, he becomes Reverb after his HeelFace Turn. Here, Reverb is his younger brother.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He cares deeply for his brother Reverb and is out to avenge his death. This is a stark contrast to their Earth-1 counterparts, who initially had a very long beef and only recently mended their relationship.
- Evil Doppelgänger: For Dante.
- Evil Sounds Deep: His mask has a voice modulator similar to the ones Team Arrow are using.
- For Want of a Nail: Unlike Dante and Cisco on Earth-1, he and Reverb are really close. It takes Zoom killing him for Dante and Cisco to reflect on their turbulent relationship and mend it for good.
- Killing Your Alternate Self: Rupture is introduced whilst about to quench his Roaring Rampage of Revenge for Cisco while the latter is with his brother, Rupture's very own Earth-1 counterpart. Rupture considers Dante collateral damage.
- Knight Templar Big Brother: He's out for revenge over his brother's death.
- Laser Blade: The blade in question is his Sinister Scythe.
- Malevolent Masked Man: Much like his comic counterpart.
- Mighty Glacier: He's not very mobile, but both his Sinister Scythe and the plasma energy that comes from it hits really hard.
- Neck Snap: How Zoom kills him.
- Plasma Cannon: His main power.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: He's wearing a mostly red outfit with black accents.
- Scarf Of Asskicking: His costume includes a purple scarf.
- Siblings in Crime: With his younger brother Reverb.

- You Have Failed Me: After he fails to kill Cisco, Zoom kills him, tossing in a remark about Reverb's death for an extra Kick the Dog.
- You Killed My Father: He is out for Revenge for his late brother, Reverb.
Dr. Harrison "Harry" Wells
Jesse Chambers Wells
Harry Wells' wife
The late wife of Harry Wells and Jesse's late mother.
- The Ghost: No picture of her is shown, nor did she appear in a flashback, leaving it ambiguous if she is Tess Morgan's, Traci Brand's or Renee Adler's Alternate Self.
- The Lost Lenore: Harry became a bad tempered, rude man after losing her.
- Missing Mom: She died when Jesse was really young.
- No Name Given: Her name is never mentioned, which is another reason why it's uncertain if she is Tess Morgan's Alternate Self.
- In Spite of a Nail: Like in Earth-1, Harrison Wells' wife sees her husband as a star on the sky, which implies S.T.A.R. Labs has the same origin of its Earth-1 counterpart's name.
- Posthumous Character: She is Harry's deceased wife and Jesse's deceased mother.
Played By: Demore Barnes
Appearances: The Flash
Tokamak's Earth-2 counterpart. He's a scientist working at S.T.A.R. Labs.

- Alliterative Name: Henry Hewitt.
- Black and Nerdy: He's a brilliant scientist.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Inverted much to Barry and Cisco's surprise, as his Earth-1 counterpart was a Villain of the Week kust a few months prior to his introduction. He also holds the distinction of being the first good Alternate Self introduced to an established villainous character.
- In Spite of a Nail: He's a scientist just like in Earth-1.
- Nice Guy: He's very friendly compared to his Earth-1 counterpart.
- Number Two: He is Harry's deputy at S.T.A.R. Labs.

- We Hardly Knew Ye: He had few appearances before being grabbed by Zoom.
Jesse Quick's teamJesse's Mission Control.

- Adaptation Dye-Job: Much like his main counterpart.

- Aw, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: He is saddened and angered to know about Earth-2 Joe's death despite their turbulent history.
- Bus Crash: He didn't reappear after Season 2, and he most certainly died when his Earth was vaporized by antimatter.
- Cowardly Lion: He's scared out of his mind rescuing his counterpart, but he goes along anyway since he won't leave his wife's side.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: He most certainly died when the Anti-Monitor destroyed his Earth.
- Gadgeteer Genius: He created an algorithm to track metahumans based off available collected data. The only one it won't track is Zoom.

- Hidden Depths: He's not as selfish and cowardly as he lets on.

- Not So Different: He may not have Earth-1 Barry's powers, but he does have his compassion. Earth-1 Barry compliments him for it.

- Sharp-Dressed Man: Is dressed in a 1920s suit.
- Skewed Priorities: He's more concerned with getting to meet Harry than with having just been kidnapped by his superpowered Alternate Self.

- Obnoxious In-Laws: He hates Barry because he thinks he influenced his daughter to become a cop, hence putting her at risk. The hatred is apparently mutual.

A War of the Americas veteran and the father of Hunter Zolomon aka Zoom.
- Abusive Parents: He is both psychologically and emotionally abusive to his son.
- Adaptational Heroism: Only by comparison. In the comics, Hunter's father was a Serial Killer who murdered six young girls along with his wife. Here, he seems to only murder the latter, and it's in a fit of rage rather than premeditated.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Word of God says he was a Domestic Abuser for years, even during the times when he was projecting himself as a "respectable" war hero.
- Chekhov's Gunman: He was mentioned by his son early in Season Two.
- Composite Character: His background as a soldier and the original owner of Jay's helmet comes from Jay's father while his charming personality and murder of his wife comes from Hunter's father.

- Shell-Shocked Veteran: It is heavily implied that the war he fought in damaged him emotionally and psychologically.
- Small Role, Big Impact: His being a horrible husband and father is what ruined his son mentally and emotionally, causing him to become a Serial Killer and monstrous supervillain.
- Spared by the Adaptation: In the comics, he is gunned down by the police after he killed his wife. Here, Harry Wells says that he was only incarcerated but is serving a life sentence (assuming Zoom didn't do anything to him in between the years, that is).

- Would Hit a Girl: He is a Domestic Abuser as said above. He ends up murdering his wife in cold blood while forcing their son to watch.
Played By: Tatyana Forrest

- Composite Character: Has the name of Zoom's wife in the comics, but her main counterpart here is his mother.
- Decomposite Character: Her role as Zoom's (unhealthy and obsessive) Love Interest in the comics is given to Earth-1 Caitlin Snow in the show, though unlike comic Ashley, Caitlin doesn't see him as anything more than a monster when she learns the truth.
- Domestic Abuse: Her husband physically, emotionally, and psychologically abused her.
- Housewife: Implied to be a stereotypical stay-at-home wife and mother during The '50s and earlier. This is either due to the Retro Universe setting (though this Earth's Iris works as a cop, and a respected one at that) or her husband having a Stay in the Kitchen mentality (which is very likely).
- Inelegant Blubbering: She was introduced crying hysterically while being assaulted by her husband.
- In Spite of a Nail: Her Earth-1 counterpart is also a Posthumous Character, having suffered Death by Childbirth. This is assuming that her son is telling the truth regarding their Earth-1 counterparts.
- Named by the Adaptation: In the comics, Hunter Zolomon's mother is a No Name Given character.
- Posthumous Character: She's long dead in the present day.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Her son being Forced to Watch by her husband when he murdered her is what screwed him up mentally and emotionally, causing him to become a Serial Killer.

Deadshot's Earth-2 counterpart. He's a police officer and works as a partner of Detective Iris West.

- Adaptational Heroism: Enforced and Invoked by The Multiverse setting of the show.
- Adaptational Wimp: Invoked and Played for Laughs. In the main universe and the comic continuity, he is/was one of the best marksman and gunslinger. Here, he's... not.
- Alternate Self: He holds the honor of being the first for any Arrow character, as back when The Multiverse concept is introduced, only ones for The Flash characters have appeared.

- Determinator: He continues to try being a good detective in spite of his Butt-Monkey status.
- Embarrassing Nickname: Earth-2 Floyd Lawton hates being called Deadshot.

- Fearless Fool: He rushes into combat without any hesitation despite being aware of his extremely poor marksmanship.
- Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Heavily implied since he sucks at firearms while Iris is a great shot.
- Informed Attribute: While he definitely sucks with firearms, his dodging skills imply his proficiency in melee or/and unarmed combat. Since he persists on using firearms, we'll never know.
- In Spite of a Nail: Competence aside, he still works with guns just like his Earth-1 counterpart.
- In-Universe Nickname: "Deadshot" like his Earth-1 Counterpart.

- Dead Alternate Counterpart: For Earth-1 Patty after Earth-2's disintegration.
- Fair Cop: She seems to be the rare Earth-2 character who's exactly the same as the Earth-1 version.

- The Ghost: Much like Mayor Snart and Robert Queen, she is only referred to, and never actually seen.
- Two Girls to a Team: She and Iris are the only known female members of the CCPD, though its noted that some were killed by Zoom 2 years ago in the "hostage situation".
The Earth-2 counterpart of either Leonard, Lisa or Lewis Snart who is the current mayor of Central City.
- Adaptational Heroism: Invoked due to being the heroic counterpart of either Captain Cold, Golden Glider, or their father, all of whom are villains in the comics and in the Arrowverse.
- Ambiguous Situation: Since they're only referred to by their last name, and no pronouns are used, it's unclear which Snart is Central City's mayor.
- Evil Twin: Inverted; their Earth-1 counterpart is a criminal, while this Snart is a Reasonable Authority Figure and the mayor of Central City.

- Badass Normal: He's not a metahuman, he just as a special gun, rather like the Rogues.

- Adaptational Badass: Invoked by being a Composite Character of The Longbow Hunters version of Robert Queen and the Flashpoint Thomas Wayne, who is the resident Badass Normal superhero instead of his son.
- Ambiguous Situation:
- We don't know if he's completely incarcerated or if he has his own loyal Sidekick that took the blame for him just like what Roy Harper did on Earth-1 for his late son's Earth-1 counterpart.
- It's unclear if his family disowned him for becoming a vigilante or if they're Locked Out of the Loop regarding his arrest.
- Badass Beard: Assuming that he also has a beard like his Earth-1 counterpart by the time he was shipwrecked, then he likely sports them. Unless he shaved them by the time he assumed his vigilantism, of course.
- Badass in Distress: First and last time we heard of him he's about to be incarcerated.
- Badass Normal: Doesn't have powers, but is a known Vigilante Man.
- Beard of Sorrow: If he does sports the aforementioned Badass Beard, then it also doubles as this since he cannot be a happy man after everything that happened to him.
- Composite Character: This version is obviously a mix of The Longbow Hunters version of Robert Queen and the Flashpoint Thomas Wayne.
- Cool Old Guy: Being outed as a Vigilante Man in his late fifties certainly counts.

The Earth-2 version of Adrian Chase, who ended up becoming the Hood of his Earth.

- Composite Character: This version is obviously a mix of Oliver Queen and the Flashpoint Bruce Wayne.

- His death was the final straw for Laurel to kickstart her Start of Darkness, as she eventually confirms to Earth-1 Felicity.
- His death also caused grief for his sister Thea. So much that she overdosed on Vertigo and die.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart:
- To the main Oliver Queen, though he only learns about him from Black Siren.
- He's also this to the Evil Doppelgänger from Earth-X, who most likely doesn't give a fuck about him.
- Death by Origin Story: For both his father and Laurel. His death is presumably one of the reasons (if not, the main) why his father became a Vigilante Man. However, it certainly served as perhaps the final straw for Laurel's Start of Darkness into Black Siren.

- Killed Offscreen: Died on a yacht trip several years before the story.

- Posthumous Character: Unlike the main Earth-1 version, he did not survive the sinking of the Queen's Gambit in 2007.

- Ambiguous Situation: All that is known about her is that she has a child. Whether she's married, widowed, separated, or a single mother is never elaborated on.

- Break the Cutie: She has a dead father and an older sister who lost her way for much of her life.
- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Zig-Zagged. The main Earth-1 Sara actually died in 2014 but was resurrected the following year, whereas this version is implied to be alive and well. At least she was before Earth-2 is disintegrated.

- Good Counterpart: This version never became the villainous Dark Archer, with that honor going to his son, Tommy.
- Nice Guy: Oliver is quite surprised to actually meet a version of him that's not a treacherous jackass.

- Broken Ace: This Tommy is the one with Survivor's Guilt over outliving both Oliver and Thea. He tries to hold it in, but underneath he's thoroughly broken.

- Dead Alternate Counterpart: Inverted. He's still living unlike his Earth-1 and Earth-X counterparts, at least until he gets killed along with the rest of his Earth. Earth-1 Tommy is then ultimately revived when Oliver recreates the multiverse, so he could be a dead counterpart of him.
- Driven to Villainy: His step-sister's death causes him to snap, vowing to destroy every single person responsible for it.
- Evil Doppelgänger: Played with. He's the Dark Archer on Earth-2, but he's not inherently evil, just broken. Oliver is quite quick to forgive him.
- In Spite of a Nail:
- On Earth-2, a Merlyn still ended up becoming the Dark Archer, only it was the son rather than the father.
- On Earth-X, he's also a hooded masked Badass Normal.
- Knight Templar Big Brother: His step-sister's death via drug overdose is enough for him to snap and vow on destroying the entire town it's being produced in.
- Nice, Mean, and In-Between: Of the three known Tommy Merlyns in The Multiverse, he's the in-between one due being a misguided Knight Templar Big Brother. The late Earth-1 Tommy was a Nice Guy, while the late Earth-X version was the mean one being a Nazi supervillain.
- Real Life Writes the Plot: Colin Donnell leaving Chicago Med was what finally freed up his schedule to make a return for Season 8 of Arrow.
- Sacrificial Lamb: He ends up getting disintegrated along with the rest of Earth-2 by an antimatter wave in front of Oliver's eyes.

Appearances: The Flash
The ruler of Gorilla City, who believes humans are dangerous to his people.
- Adaptational Badass: As opposed to previous incarnations of Solovar who are either defeated by Grodd or are forced to rely upon the help of The Flash or other heroes to help him take down Grodd, this incarnation of Solovar is strong enough to overpower Grodd all on his own and Grodd himself even admits that he's unable to defeat Solovar in a fair fight.
- Adaptational Dumbass: This Solovar is much less scientifically brilliant than his comic counterpart, relying on a spear and shield rather than Frickin' Laser Beams.
- Adaptational Villainy: The comic Solovar was a Reasonable Authority Figure, while this one is a brutal warmonger. Although it's revealed that he never wanted war in the first place, he's still much more brutal and paranoid than his comic counterpart.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: His fur is grey in the comics, but white here, to better distinguish him from Grodd.
- Advertised Extra: Heavily hyped in promotions, but was greatly underused in the two-part arc due to the show's limited budget on featuring CGI gorillas.
- Ambiguously Evil: It's never established if he's just violently paranoid over humans or if he's just as evil as Grodd says.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: His defeat at Barry's hands causes him to be removed as leader, but him whopping Grodd's ass quickly got him reinstated.
- Back from the Dead: He is implied to have revived after the Crisis and be relocated to Earth-Prime.
- Bad Boss: According to Grodd, he is a tyrant. While we don't see much of him, he does slap Grodd around for talking back to him.
- Badass Baritone: He's voiced by Keith David, so it's to be expected. ]
- Bus Crash: He dies when an antimatter wave destroys Earth-2. However, he is implied to be in Earth-Prime now.
- Celebrity Paradox: The Disney Animated Canon is acknowledged to exist on the Arrowverse. His voice actor was on both Hercules and The Princess and the Frog, playing the villain on the latter film.
- Death by Adaptation: His comics version did die in Crisis on Infinite Earths, but this version dies before that storyline's adaptation.
- Defeat Means Respect: Has no problems helping Team Flash deal with Grodd despite Barry kicking his ass in the previous episode. This is justified because of two things; the first is the Might Makes Right mentality that the Gorilla City residents display, the second is Solovar just hates Grodd that much for usurping him.
- Fights Like a Normal: For a given value of normal. He possesses psychic powers similar to Grodd's, but doesn't use them in his fight with Barry, preferring brute force.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's freakishly fast for his size, and is capable of performing parkour that would make the Arrow characters proud.
- Noble Demon: After defeating Grodd, he withdraws the Gorilla army from Earth-1 and even spares Grodd on Barry's insistence.
- Psychic Powers: Like Grodd's. It is unknown if this is standard for the gorillas, or if, like in the comics, it is unique to Grodd and the royal family.
- Red Herring: He isn't the one who wants to invade Central City, Grodd is.
- Shockwave Stomp: Strong enough to engulf an entire arena.
Known Aliases: Batman
The Dark Knight of Earth-2.
