      • James Olsen and Alex Danvers (Earths 1, 38, and X)
      • James Jesse (Earths 1, 3, and 90).

      • Anthony Bellows, Julio Mendez, Tina McGee, and Zoey Clark (Earths 1 and 90).
      • Bruce Wayne (Earths 1 and 38).
      • John Diggle (Earths 1 and 90).
    • Earth-90 is an interesting case, particularly involving the Allen family, Iris West, Leonard Snart, and Sam Scudder.
      • John Wesley Shipp plays Barry Allen there, whereas the Earths 1 and 2 versions are played by Grant Gustin. Shipp also plays the Earth-1 Henry Allen and Jay Garrick from Earth-3, but their respective counterparts on Earth-90 are played by M. Emmet Walsh and Tim Thomerson.
      • Nora Thompson-Allen is played by Priscilla Pointer, but is played by Michelle Harrison on Earths 1 and 2.
      • Iris West-Allen is played by Paula Marshall, but is played by Candice Patton on Earths 1 and 2.
      • Earth-90 has Leonard Wynters as the supervillain Captain Cold played by Michael Champion, but the Truer to the Text versions of Leonard Snart from Earths 1 and X are both played by Wentworth Miller.
      • Linda Park is played by Mariko Tse. On Earth-1 she's originally played by Olivia Cheng before Malese Jow takes over. The Earth-2 version is only ever played by Jow.
      • Sam Scudder is played by David Cassidy, but is played by Grey Damon on Earth-1.
  • Alternate Universe: Hence the name "Other Earths". According to Prof. Stein, there are at least 52 of them based on the number of dimensional breaches on the main one, which he dubs Earth-1. Kara later confirms there are exactly 52 ... only for Harry Wells to reveal the existence of a 53rd — Earth-X.
  • Dead Alternate Counterpart: Several.
    • Two (from Earths 1 and 19) of the thirteen confirmed Harrison Wellses are confirmed dead. As fate would have it, both deaths involved body changing devices and evil speedsters from the future who time traveled to the past to kill an important woman in Earth-1 Barry Allen's life.
    • Of John Wesley Shipp's four confirmed characters, one (Henry Allen from Earth-1) is confirmed dead. note 
      • Since Tim Thomerson's re-imagined version of Jay Garrick (named Jay Allen) was killed in Earth-90, this makes him this trope to the Earth-3 Jay Garrick played by Shipp.
      • The Earth-1 Henry Allen also played by Shipp is this to the M. Emmett Walsh version of Henry Allen from Earth-90 as well as the Earth-2 version.
    • Of the four confirmed Francisco Ramons, two (from Earths 2 and 22) are confirmed dead. The Earth-1 version actually died twice, but was brought Back from the Dead both times via Cosmic Retcon from Earth-1 Barry Allen.
    • Of the three confirmed Oliver Queens, two (from Earths 2 and X) are confirmed dead. The Earth-X version was in fact killed by his Earth-1 counterpart. The Earth-1 version himself actually died briefly two years earlier, but was brought Back from the Dead via Cosmic Retcon from Earth-1 Barry Allen.
    • Of the three confirmed Dinah Laurel Lances, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead. The Earth-1 version actually died earlier, but was brought Back from the Dead via Cosmic Retcon from Earth-1 Barry Allen.
    • Of the three confirmed Quentin Larry Lances, two (from Earths 1 and 2) are confirmed dead.
    • Of the three confirmed Nora Thompson-Allens, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the three confirmed Alex Danverses, one (from Earth-X) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the three confirmed James Olsens, one (from Earth-X) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Kara Zor-Els, one (from Earth-X) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Sara Lances, one (from Earth-X) is confirmed dead. The remaining one (from Earth-1) technically died too, but was brought Back from the Dead (possibly twice).
    • Of the two confirmed Caitlin Snows, one (from Earth-2) is confirmed dead. She actually died because she tried to kill her Earth-1 counterpart. The Earth-1 version actually died earlier, but was brought Back from the Dead via Cosmic Retcon from Earth-1 Barry Allen.
    • Of the two confirmed Joe Wests, one (from Earth-2) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the three confirmed Leonard Snarts/Wynters, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Ray Terrills, one (from Earth-X) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Damien Darhks, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead. The Earth-1 version actually died twice before being finally Killed Off for Real.
    • Of the two confirmed Robert Queens, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Julio Mendezes, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Shay Lamdens, one (from Earth-1) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Clay Parkers, one (from Earth-2) is confirmed dead.
    • Of the two confirmed Adam Fellses, one (from Earth-2) is confirmed dead.
  • Of the two confirmed Brett Collinses, one (from Earth-2) is confirmed dead.
    • Two of the confirmed Ronnie Raymonds (Earths 1 and 2), Martin Steins (Earths 1 and 2), Al Rothsteins (Earths 1 and 2), John Corbens (Earths 38 and X), Red Tornadoes (Earths 38 and X), and Tommy Merlyns (Earths 1 and X) are all dead.
  • Doppelgänger: While they're technically alternate selves, this is how they are called by the main characters.
  • Expendable Alternate Universe:
    • A trend in The Flash Season 2 is that Barry has far less of a problem killing Earth-2 counterpart villains, as opposed to his Thou Shalt Not Kill vow for Earth-1 versions. The only known exception is Dr. Light.
    • An unnumbered Earth attempted to conquer Earth-19 in the past. This is the very reason for their strict rules regarding dimension travelling.
  • The Ghost: Earth-15 is only mentioned when Cisco opens a breach to it, but is otherwise never shown.
  • Hero of Another Story: Three of the other Earths have their own show.
  • Hufflepuff House: Of at least 52 Earths, only Earths-1-3, 19, 38, 90, and X are visited (though Earth-3 is the only one not fleshed out).
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • All Earths apparently share the same cities. Central City, Star City, Corto Maltese, Kasnia, Opal City, and Gotham City in particular are the ones explicityly mentioned.
    • Cadmus exists in both Earth-1 and Earth-38, though it appears to be more prominent in the latter universe.
    • In the big "Invasion" crossover, Supergirl mentions that the Dominators exist in her universe as well as the Arrowverse.
    • Mariah Carey is a popular singer on both Earth-1 and Earth-38.
    • A character played by John Wesley Shipp was imprisoned because of an evil speedster. Henry Allen was Mistaken for Murderer thanks to being the unintentional scapegoat for Eobard Thawne's murder of his wife Nora on Earth-1, while Jay Garrick from Earth-3 was kept as a "personal trophy" by Earth-2's Hunter Zolomon on the latter's universe.
    • The Harrison Wells of both Earths 2 and 19 love Big Belly Burger.
    • At least three (Earths 1, 2 and 19) Harrison Wells are associated with the creation of S.T.A.R. Labs. Two of which have partners with the surname "Morgan" (Earths 1 and 2).
    • S.T.A.R. Labs exists on Earths 1, 2, 19 and 90.
    • Three Tricksters have been played by Mark Hamill, so far.
    • Earths 1, 2, and 19 have someone who can Vibe (and they all call it that) working with a speedster.
    • Barry Allen has the same powers on Earth-1 and an unnumbered one, (Fran)Cisco Ramon has the same powers on Earths 1, 2 and X, Caitlin Snow, Ronnie Raymond, (technically) Martin Stein, and Adam Fells have the same powers in Earths 1 and 2, and Laurel Lance have the same powers in Earths 2 and X (and even in Earth-1 via mechanical device).
    • The Red Tornado was killed by Kara Zor-El the same way in Earth-38 and Earth-X.
    • Quentin Lance gave birth to a bisexual daughter on Earths 1, X and possibly 2.
    • There's someone called The Flash on Earths 1, 2, 3 and 90.
    • There's Two Earth's with a Jonah Hex, two Earth's with a Conner Hawke / John Diggle Jr., and two Earth's with a Legion of Superhero's existing at different points in time.
    • (Fran)Cisco Ramon was killed by an evil speedster in three earths. He suffered Death by Secret Identity on Earth-1 at the (vibrating) hand of Eobard Thawne in a timeline that was overwritten by the Flash's time traveling, On Earth-2 he was killed by Zoom as punishment for disobeying orders and he may or may not have been killed on Earth-X by Blitzkrieg.
  • Lethal Lava Land: Cisco and Cindy crosses a volcanic Earth during their dimension-hopping Trial by Combat, it's possible this is Earth-15.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: There are those who attempted to be, but are foiled.
  • The Present Day: So far, only the main universe, Earth-12, Earth-19, 24, Earth-38, Earth-221, and a few other Unnumbered Earths are confirmed to be this, in aesthetic. Earth-2, Earth-17 and at least two unnumbered ones are also "present day" in time, but are Retro Universe in aesthetic. Earth-3 and Earth-X have certain elements from different time periods, but their overall aesthetic are the same as modern times.
  • Retro Universe: Some of The Multiverse, specifically...
  • Year Inside, Hour Outside: How Earths-1 and 38 work, in both "Verses Zoom" and "Invasion" it took a few seconds to cover what took up a whole episode of Supergirl (2015), it hasn't yet been shown how long a trip to Earth-1 takes from Earth-38.
  • Zeerust: Some Earths are set in a Retro Universe but have ridiculously advanced technology.

Earth-3

     In General 

     Jay Garrick / The Flash 

Jay Garrick / The Flash

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jaygarrick.png
We’re not gods, we’re men who for whatever reason have been given extraordinary abilities.

Species: Enhanced Human

Known Aliases: The Flash, The Crimson Comet, The Masked Man

Played By: John Wesley Shipp

Appearances: The Flash

The Flash of an alternate Earth, which he dubs "Earth-3". He first appears as a masked prisoner in Zoom's lair. He is then revealed to be the Earth-3 counterpart of Barry's late father Henry Allen, but with a different name.

see the Arrowverse: Earth-90 page for more info on two Earth-90 characters; one who has his first name and comicbook connections, the other bearing his physical likeness
see the Arrowverse: West/Allen Family page for his Earth-1 counterpart, Henry Allen
see the Arrowverse: Earth-2 page for his Earth-2 counterpart, Henry Allen

  • Alternate Self:
    • To Henry Allen from Earth-1. Aside from their names being different, Jay is a metahuman, a superhero, and apparently never fathered an Earth-3 Barry (if his lack of reaction to Earth-1 Barry is any indication).
    • Physically, his counterpart on Earth-90 is Barry himself.
  • Alternate Universe Reed Richards Is Awesome: Henry Allen's Earth-3 counterpart is none other than the real Jay Garrick, a speedster rather than a doctor.
  • And I Must Scream:
    • The iron mask he was forced to wear hindered his ability to speak, so he had to resort to using tap codes to communicate. It also cut him off from the Speed Force, something that would be akin to losing a leg for a normal person. After being unmasked and getting cleaned up, he breaks it in half with a vibrating hand, not wanting to ever see it again.
    • He goes through this again at the end of Season Three when he volunteers to take Wally's place in the Speed Force, reliving his worst memory over and over. He's freed in the Season Finale just in time for the Final Battle against Savitar.
  • And Starring: Credited this way in the guest-stars lineup.
  • Badass in Distress: He spends most of Season Two as Zoom's prisoner and trophy, despite being a superhero himself. Granted, Zoom had an unfair advantage due to the Velocity drug making him faster.
  • Beard of Sorrow: His Dramatic Unmask shows him with a full beard, a testament that he has suffered in Zoom's hand for quite some time.
  • Canon Character All Along: The iron mask concealed his face and his identity; the only thing clear about him was that he knew Jay Garrick. He's revealed at the end of Season Two to be the real Jay Garrick.
  • Celebrity Paradox:
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Double Subverted. With the way he's introduced in the Season Two finale, you would expect him to be important to the future, but aside from being the origin of Hunter's fake name (which we've long since known was a fake), he doesn't add anything to the plot and disappears shortly after being introduced. However, he reappears in Season Three, giving Barry a much-needed pep talk regarding Time Travel, then later helping him against new Big Bad Savitar.
  • Composite Character: He's a combination of the comics' Jay Garrick and an Alternate Universe version of Barry's father, Henry Allen.
  • Cool Hat: At the end of Season Two, he keeps Zolomon's Mercury helmet, resolving to make it a true symbol of hope rather than a false one. He can also catch bullets with it.
  • Cool Old Guy: Like the comic-book version of the character before the New 52 reboot.
  • Despair Event Horizon: It was clear that he was losing hope the longer he stayed in Zoom's lair. He even broke down when Barry and Jesse failed to get his message.
  • Distressed Dude: He was already Zoom's prisoner by the time Jesse was abducted.
  • Dramatic Unmask: In the Season Two finale, in front of everyone at Star Labs.
  • Doppelgänger: He looks exactly like Henry Allen, being his equivalent from an Alternate Universe.
  • Dynamic Entry: Seems to have a thing for this trope; out of four times when he's appeared since being Zoom's prisoner, three of them have been this.
  • Everyone Knows Morse: He kept spelling out his first name using a POW tap code, implying that he might be a war veteran.
  • Feeling Their Age: Can't use his speed continuously for as long as Barry and Jesse anymore.
  • A God I Am Not: He tells Barry that they are not gods, but men with extraordinary abilities.
  • Heroic Build: In contrast with the other speedsters who tend to be leaner, this Flash packed a considerable amount of muscle in his youth. By the time we meet him, he's a bit paunchier.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He volunteers to take Wally's place in the Speed Force prison and relive his worst memory over and over. It's entirely possible that he knew this would happen from the moment Cisco came to get him.
  • Hero of Another Story: He's the Flash of an alternate Earth.
  • Humble Hero: He reveals himself to be this with one beautiful line:
    We’re not gods, we’re men who for whatever reason have been given extraordinary abilities.
  • Iconic Outfit: While the top half of his suit has blue on its lower sides as a nod to Jay of the New 52, the suit is still much closer to his classic comics outfit than the Earth-2 Flash suit was, retaining the bright colors and all.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Does not appear in the Arrowverse until its fourth year.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • Much like his Earth-1 counterpart Henry, he was imprisoned because of an evil speedster. For added bonus, both were jailed in something called "Iron" (Iron Heights for Henry, Iron Mask for Jay).
    • His physical counterpart on Earth-90 is also a speedster called The Flash.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Compared to Barry's, his jaw is really wide.
  • Last Episode, New Character: While he appears throughout Season Two as an unknown masked figure trapped in the lair of the Big Bad, his full self — including his name, face, costume, and abilities — aren't shown until the season finale. He becomes a recurring character in Season Three.
  • Like a Son to Me: It's pretty clear from his actions that he sees Barry as this, which is fitting since he's the Alternate Self of Barry's late father.
  • Long Bus Trip: Implied since after "Enter Flashtime" he is retiring from heroics.
  • Man in the Iron Mask: When we first saw him, his mask concealed his face entirely, even preventing him from speaking. Zoom did not want him communicating with the other prisoners, either.
  • Mentor Archetype: He is the first good rather than evil speedster mentor to Barry, especially when it comes to the Speed Force, the powers it grants to its chosen, and the moral obligations that come with those powers. He is mentoring a new speedster in Earth-3.
  • Nice Guy: Despite being a Stern Teacher to Barry, he is a man with a very strong moral compass and is genuinely humble and kind towards Team Flash, helping them out when they really need it and trying to mentor Barry. He's even rather patient and understanding of the awkwardness Barry must be feeling when dealing with the doppelgänger of his recently-deceased father.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Is on the receiving end of this, courtesy of Savitar.
  • Nom de Mom: Heavily implied. His surname Garrick comes from his Earth-1 counterpart's mother. It could indicate he was raised without his father, which might also account for why his first name is different, or his parents' doppelgangers are gender-swapped in this universe.
  • Older and Wiser: He's the oldest and most experienced speedster we've met so far, and draws on that experience when urging Barry not to make the same mistakes he did.
  • Old Superhero: He's in his later years but is every bit as brave as in his youth.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Blue pants, red and yellow top.
  • Reality Warping Is Not a Toy: A firm believer in this. He makes Barry realize that he can't keep causing Cosmic Retcon instances, as things will never be exactly the way they used to be.
  • Red Baron: "The Crimson Comet".
  • Red Is Heroic: His suit is a much brighter, deeper red than Barry's own current suit, and has bright red boots and much brighter blue pants compared to the Earth-2 Flash suit.
  • Related in the Adaptation: Sort of, as he is Henry's Earth-3 counterpart. In the comics, Jay and Barry aren't related by blood at all.
  • Remake Cameo: John Wesley Shipp played the original live-action Barry Allen in The Flash (1990). Now he's playing the original Flash from the comic books, Jay Garrick.
  • Retired Badass: As of "Enter Flashtime", he is retiring from doing heroics since he is too old.
  • Sixth Ranger: A recurring ally to Team Flash.
  • Stern Teacher: He doesn't wear kid gloves when lecturing Barry, but he isn't overly harsh, either, and sincerely does want him to mature.
  • Super Speed: Naturally, since he's a Flash.
  • Surpassed the Teacher: He expresses his surprise when he finds out that Barry has gained the ability to temporarily share his speed with non-speedsters while he himself has never really learned that ability.
  • Taught by Experience: Jay admits to Barry that he's made the same mistakes Barry has when it comes to time travel and that he doesn't wish to see Barry make them too.
  • Tragic Keepsake: Played with. At the end of Season Two, he takes Hunter's helmet as a Kick the Son of a Bitch for stealing so much from him. Jay vows to turn the helmet into the symbol of hope it was meant to be, rather than the cruel joke Hunter used it as.
  • Trapped in Another World: He was taken from his Earth to Earth-2 by Zoom as his personal prisoner and stayed there for quite a time. After he's freed, he returns to Earth-2 so Harry and Jesse can help him get home to Earth-3.
  • Walking Spoiler: Revealing his backstory gives away some rather large spoilers about Zoom's own identity and motivations.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: What Jay teaches Barry in regards to being a speedster.

     The Trickster 

The Trickster

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trickster_e3.jpg

Species: Human

Known Aliases: The Trickster

Played By: Mark Hamill

Appearances: The Flash

An anarchist terrorist and madman.

see the Arrowverse: Earth-90 page for Earth-90 James Jesse
see the Arrowverse: Central City Criminals page for Earth-1 James Jesse

  • Ax-Crazy: As a Joker Expy, this is to be expected. He gleefully recounts how he robbed a bank by giving the false promise he'd spare the lives of the people inside, and was gleefully at the prospect of blowing up Jay Garrick in a Taking You with Me moment.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Is wearing a formal suit while robbing a bank when introduced.
  • Badass Longcoat: Which perfectly hides his bombs.
  • Badass Normal: He's just a regular human with no superpowers, but fights The Flash through his sheer cunning and bomb-making abilities.
  • Bomb-Throwing Anarchists: Has the bombs hidden under his coat, but still qualifies.
  • Bungled Suicide: Attempted to kill Jay Garrick by blowing themselves up before Barry intervened.
  • Chewing the Scenery: He's as theatrical as his Alternate Selves.
  • Composite Character:
    • He is The Trickster, but his overall appearance and characterization is unquestionably The Joker.
    • Also a composite character of himself (from other Earths) in terms of appearance. He has the garish colors favored by his Earth-1 counterpart and the 90's Trickster, but wears an impeccable tailored suit like Earth-1 Trickster in the relative present day.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: His paleness may be from makeup, but it adds to the creepiness. The Guyliner also helps.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His introduction is basically admitting I Lied involving telling people he'd let them live if he got what he wanted.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Mark Hamill is clearly having a blast playing this role.
  • Expy: Of The Joker complete with makeup and psychotic behavior.
  • Fur and Loathing: He is a supervillain wearing a fur coat.
  • Guyliner: He wears this to highlight that he a Joker Expy.
  • Large Ham: As expected from Mark Hamill.
  • Laughably Evil: He may be a dangerous psycho, but he's just so gosh-darn entertaining.
  • Monster Clown: He wear garish colors, joke around, and build weapons out of gags like gift boxes.
  • More Dakka: He is equipped with a Tommy Gun in his introduction.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He's only known as the Trickster. Since Jay Garrick has a different name from his Earths 1 and 2 counterparts, it's uncertain if the name of this Trickster is also James Jesse (like on Earth-1 and Earth-90).
  • Role Reprisal: Hamill's fourth time in the role.
  • Slasher Smile: Just to point out the fact that they he's Obviously Evil.
  • Taking You with Me: Tries this on Jay Garrick by handcuffing himself to him and blowing them both up. Barry intervenes and disarms his bombs.
  • The Trickster: Codename aside, he promised to let the employees at a bank he was robbing live if they did what he said.
    Trickster: But I tricked them! Which is so me!
  • Villain of Another Story: This Trickster is a villain on Earth-3-
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: His hair is dyed purple.

Herr Harrison Wolfgang Wells

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/earth_12_wells.jpg

Species: Human

Played By: Tom Cavanagh

Appearances: The Flash

The Harrison Wells from Earth-12. He is an author just like H.R., but has a personality that is much closer to Harry's.

see the Arrowverse: S.T.A.R. Labs page for his Earths-1, 2 19, and an unnumbered Earth counterparts

  • Character Tic: Tends to raise two fingers of his right hand and swing it around to gesture while talking.
  • Fair Weather Friend: When Earth-2 Wells reveals to him that he Took a Level in Dumbass, Harrison Wolfgang Wells expells him of the team and cuts ties with him unceremoniously. Cisco is not pleased.
  • Foil: To H.R. as both of them are authors. But unlike the pretentious yet very personable H.R., this Wells has a very credible background (four PhDs) but can be an Insufferable Genius Jerkass just like Harry.
  • For Want of a Nail: He is an author just like H.R., but unlike him this Wells has a credible background with four PhDs.
  • Germanic Depressives: He's very German and very dour.
  • Hate Sink: He becomes utterly despicable when he leaves Harry Wells when he needed him the most.
  • Herr Doctor: He's German and the holder of four PhDs
  • Hidden Depths: When Team Flash contacts him to help catch Cicada, Cisco fully expects he'll be the same "asshat" as seen before and won't cooperate, however upon meeting the rest of Team Flash he starts gushing and praising them like a huge Fan Boy, and while stating he's too busy to personally help them, he cheerfully connects them to Sherloque Wells whom he has full confidence can help. All of which is hilariously to Cisco's utter frustration.
  • In Spite of a Nail: He's an author, just like his late Earth-19 counterpart H.R.
  • Insufferable Genius: He has four PhDs, and doesn't want to be outclassed by Harry. At first he tells Cisco to go because he is not as intelligent as them.
  • It Amused Me: This appears to be the only reason he accepted Harry's request for help to stop DeVoe, wanting a challenge provided by an intellectual individual to stimulate his own intellect. However, once Harry loses his intelligence, Wolfgang refuses to associate with Harry anymore.
  • Jerkass: As much of a dick as Harry Wells, if not more. He makes up with his fellow Wellses once they settle their differences in finding DeVoe. Until later, where he kicks Harry out of the Council after his Thinking Cap makes him lose his intelligence.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite being very impersonable and nihilistic, he still helps Harry with the DeVoe's mystery.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: His extremely eccentric personality, combined with his German accent and creativity, brings to mind Andy Warhol.
  • Not So Different: Despite their bickering, he and Harry have a lot in common.
  • Silver Fox: Has a head of grey hair.
  • Straw Nihilist: His authored works are on the meaninglessness of existence and he's introduced asking Harry why bother stopping DeVoe since the universe will end no matter what.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: He seemingly became kinder, since he behaves politely to Team Flash when the team call him to help out with Cicada's mystery.


Earth-13

    In General 
  • Fictional Earth: If Wells the Grey is to believed, his Earth is basically a version of Middle Earth.
  • Hobbits: Wells the Grey claims Earth-13 is inhabited by a race of diminutive folk called "Ciscos" who look just like Cisco, but have furry feet.

  • Different World, Different Movies:
    • According to H.R., Gladiator is titled Sweaty Men in this universe.
    • Star Wars uses George Lucas' original last name for Luke, Starkiller. Which also brings up the question of how much else of his extremely different original story plan made it in.
    • Peanuts has Charlie Brown rather than Schroeder as the one who plays the piano, with a Running Gag that he's terrible at it.
    • Mission: Impossible is known as Mission Improbable.
    • Star Trek: Voyager is the only entry to the Star Trek franchise (if it can still be called that in this Earth).
  • Felony Misdemeanor:
    • In this universe, dimension-hopping is a serious offense, and is punishable by death. This is due to them being subjected to an invasion by another parallel Earth at some point in their history.
    • Gambling is also highly illegal in the U.S due to a former Vice President being involved in a huge gambling scandal.
  • For Want of a Nail: The metahuman with Seer powers in this universe is not a version of Cisco, unlike in Earths 1, 2, and X.
  • Great Offscreen War: H.R. mentions a major metahuman uprising in the past which is dubbed "World War M", plus they were able to fend-off multiversal conquerors during The '90s.
  • Hero of Another Story: This universe is the sixth most developed universe within the Arrowverse multiverse after Earths 1, 38, an unnumbered one, X, and 2, plus the home to two major characters (H.R. and Gypsy) and another two characters who have potential to be one (Accelerated Man and Breacher).
  • Hypocrite: Traveling to other Earths is forbidden due to a war with another Earth, so citizens who break the law are hunted down by bounty hunters who can travel between Earths at will and are brought back by force — essentially they invade other Earths.
  • In Spite of a Nail:
    • Much like in Earths- 1 and 2, Harrison Wells is heavily involved in the creation of S.T.A.R. Labs, and much like in Earth-1, the surname of Wells' partner in creating it is "Morgan".
    • This universe has a Flash much like Earths-1, 3, and Earth-90.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Many people here likely do because of the coffee plant crisis in this world, if H.R and Gypsy's respective introductions are any indication. Breacher himself shows that this isn't universal though, since Cisco giving him some turns out to be a Berserk Button due to living through the plant being wiped out.
  • Nailed to the Wagon: Turns out an invasion from aliens called Plastoids rendered the coffee plant extinct or nearly so, thus depriving the people there of their java. When Gypsy returns home, she takes shopping bags full of coffee.
  • The Present Day: This world is strongly implied to share Earths 1 and 38's aesthetics, with maybe slight differences (such as the Different World, Different Movies examples above).
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: A large number of metahumans caused havoc in the past dubbed "World War M", which heavily suggests this trope.

S.T.A.R. Labs

     H.R. Wells 

     Randolf Morgan 

Randolf Morgan

Species: Human

Played By: Adam Bergquist

The co-creator of this universe's S.T.A.R. Labs along with H.R. Wells.


  • False Friend: Heavily implied. When Cisco tells H.R that the reason Randolf gave him their distress signal despite knowing dimension-hopping is illegal on their Earth was to finally get rid of him, H.R ponders before sadly agreeing.
  • Gender Flip: As a co-creator of S.T.A.R. Labs with the surname Morgan, he seems to be this to Earth-1's Tess Morgan.
  • The Ghost: Only mentioned by H.R. when he's telling Team Flash that in his universe, he is not the brains behind S.T.A.R. Labs. We only get to see his appearance via H.R.'s face duplicator device.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He's the brains behind S.T.A.R. Labs while H.R. is just the public face of it.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: H.R. dies on Earth-1, though Gypsy will probably tell him about this. It should also be noted that H.R. is Legally Dead on this universe way before his real death.
  • Two First Names: Morgan is commonly used as a given name.

The Collectors

     Accelerated Man 

The Accelerated Man

Species: Enhanced Human

Known Aliases: Accelerated Man

Played By: Sean Poague

Appearances: The Flash

A speedster hero on Earth-19 who works with Gypsy to catch dimension breachers. That is the only thing known about him.


  • Awesome Anachronistic Apparel: His costume is identical to his sole appearance in the comic book pages, consisting of a red old-time pilot's uniform, big yellow gloves and boots, a white belt, a red scarf, a white mask that covers the lower half of his face, and old-fashioned goggles.
  • Badass Baritone: His one line so far is delivered in a deep voice, and he's famed as the speedster hero of his Earth.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: He gives off purple lightning when he runs — the first speedster we've seen to do so.
  • Goggles Do Nothing: He has them worn up when we see him.
  • The Ghost: The first we learn of his existence is H.R. mentioning him to Cisco. He later appears in-person, but only for a couple of cameos.
  • Hero of Another Story: He's the Flash of Earth-19, just like in the comics, and the one in charge of tracking down breachers.
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: It's not commented on, but he looks a lot like Hunter Zolomon.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Unlike any other speedster we've seen, he generates purple lightning.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Admittedly, we don't know much about him yet, but he's just upholding the law by apprehending breachers, and his first appearance has him politely thanking Gypsy for catching their latest quarry.
  • Red Is Heroic: As is expected from a Flash, his costume is mostly red.
  • Scarf Of Asskicking: His costume includes a bright red scarf.
  • Shock and Awe: His speed can create lightning.
  • Super Speed: He's yet another of DC's speedster heroes.

Known Aliases: Breacher

Played By: Danny Trejo

Appearances: The Flash

A legendary collector and Gypsy's father.


  • Action Dad: He's an experienced collector and Gypsy's father, herself a seasoned collector.
  • Adaptation Name Change: The Breacher's name in the source material is Quell Mordeth. Here, his first name is Josh and it's uncertain if his surname remains intact or if it is changed to Reynolds to accommodate him being Gypsy's father (unless she's using her mom's maiden name).

  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Breacher is only his Code Name, but that's what the other characters address him.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: His real name is Josh, though Trejo still makes it sound terrifying.
  • Hates Everyone Equally: His hard-ass attitude makes it hard for him to get along with anyone that isn't his daughter. He at least respects Joe, a police officer.
  • It Runs in the Family: Her daughter is also a Collector.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He clearly loves his daughter and he eventually lightens up towards Cisco.
  • Knight Templar Parent: Has hunted and killed all of Gypsy's boyfriends in the past. Cisco is the only one to impress him enough to not kill.
  • Large Ham: Danny Trejo was clearly enjoying himself in the role.
  • Living Legend: He's a much more seasoned collector than his daughter.
  • Long Bus Trip: His weakening status and retirement to Earth-48 has made unlikely his return after appearing for a second time.
  • Must Have Caffeine: Inverted. He absolutely refuses to drink coffee. He does seem to like tea though.
  • Old Soldier: Age hasn't made him any less frightening.
  • Papa Wolf: To the point of hunting down his daughters boyfriends.
  • Retired Badass: After his age caused him to start losing his powers, he retired to a dragon farm. He would eventually return to action to hunt alimony dodgers.
  • Scarily Competent Tracker: Boasts that he is one and all evidence seems to back it up.
