BEWARE OF SPOILERS!
Known Aliases: Jasmine (strip club name)
Played by: Riley Jade Berglund
Appearances: The Flash (2014)
Cecile Horton's first daughter, who studies in Coast City.
- Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Well, not exactly, since she only became a stripper to study Male Gaze, but she is nevertheless a good hearted person.
- Locked Out of the Loop: She is not in on the superhero business of her extended family. She was there on Iris' and Barry's wedding (off-screen) but her memories about the events were erased.
Species: Human (Empowered via Spirit Totem)
Known Aliases: Vixen
Voiced and Played by: Megalyn Echikunwoke, Kimberly Brooks (child, voice)
Appearances: Vixen | Arrow | Freedom Fighters: The Ray
A woman with the ability to channel different animal powers and the eponymous main character of Vixen.
- Action Girl: She's the Arrowverse's first female lead hero after all. And it's not just the amulet, as shown by the end of the first season when her amulet is stolen by an enemy and she defeats her despite being powerless and having recently recovered from a venomous spider bite.
- Adaptational Modesty: Her comic counterpart's costume is (in)famous for having a very long V-neck line that shows off her Absolute Cleavage. Here she's all covered up.
- Alliterative Name: Mari McCabe.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She is rather rigid and speaks in a deadpan manner.
- Ancient Artifact: Her powers stem from the Anansi Totem, a magical amulet passed down her family line. The necklace allows her to harness the life force of animals, in essence harnessing their abilities.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Her totem gives her all kinds of animal powers including gorilla strength, rhino charge, cat agility and bird flight.
- Badass Boast: See her above quote.
- Battle Aura: Whenever a user taps into the totem's power, the animal chosen briefly appears as an incorporeal or astral projection; it is blue for Amaya, purple for Mari.
- The Beast Master: Uses her abilities to communicate with and dominate two opposing guard dogs, then employs them to distract some cops.
- The Bus Came Back: After being absent from The 'Verse since mid-Arrow Season 4, she re-appears in the second season of Freedom Fighters: The Ray.
- Cain and Abel: Her first enemy is her sister, Kuasa.
- Celebrity Paradox: An episode of The Flash mentions the CSI franchise. Her actress was a main cast member on CSI: Miami.
- Contralto of Danger: She has a very low voice and is one badass fighter.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Unlike Oliver and Barry she is a one woman operation; she doesn't have a support team or the resources that Palmer Tech provide Team Arrow and that STAR Labs provide Team Flash. All she has is her totem and her stepdad, Chuck for support.
- Deadpan Snarker: She definitely qualifies.Prof. Macalester: "So you actually witnessed him use the totem to control fire?"
Mari(bandages over her burns): "No. I just burned myself on a curling iron."
- Demoted to Extra: Due her actress having other commitments, she's been essentially sidelined in favor of her grandmother Amaya for all the live-action shows.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Subverted, her guest episode on "Arrow" was meant to set her up for joining the Legends in Season Two, but since her actress had other commitments she was replaced by her Canon Foreigner grandmother Amaya instead.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: Her hair is much longer in her live-action appearances.
- Faux Action Girl: Only on Arrow. She first appears tracking down ordinary thugs, but Oliver ends up rescuing her when one of them nearly shoots her in the back of the head. Then, when she's called in to deal with Damien Darhk herself she gets her ass handed by him almost effortlessly. The only remotely badass thing she does in her episode is shatter Damien's totem, which is the source of his power. Of course, given her powers, her presence can leads into a Story-Breaker Power.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Her initial relationship with Barry, Oliver, and the others heroes was quite frosty, due to a misunderstanding (she assumed that Barry and Oliver wanted to arrest her, they just wanted to help her understand her powers). A few adventures however made them all bosom friends. Even if Mari prefers to stay in Detroit, if they ask for her help she will gladly come.
- Flight: One of her powers, from channeling the spirit of a bird.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Joins Team Arrow to rescue Oliver's son from Damien Darhk in "Taken".
- Happily Adopted: While she's a bit resentful of her father at first, she admits this after some Character Development. Notably when her dead ancestors appear in the sixth episode, her adopted mother is among them.
- Hero of Another Story: She's the main character of her own series.
- Ink-Suit Actor: Inverted. She first appeared in her eponymous animated show before appearing here in live-action. In fact, the character was modeled after Echikunwoke in the first place just in case they were able to work in an appearance on another show.
- Kung-Fu Wizard: Downplayed since her magic is centered on enhancing her physical abilities, but still fits as her use of magic is why Team Arrow goes to her for help against Damien Dahrk, and her familiarity with mystical artifacts proves key to figuring out the source of his powers.
- Legacy Character: Her grandmother used the totem before her, who appears on Legends of Tomorrow thanks to Time Travel.
- Locked Out of the Loop: She has no idea her grandmother used the same moniker and outfit, and is traveling in time with some of her friends.
- Moveset Clone: She, her sister Kuasa, and their grandmother Amaya have the same powerset via the totem.
- Present Absence: She has yet to show up in Legends of Tomorrow, but she casts a long shadow with her connection to the team via her grandmother is an important plot point, especially when Kuasa becomes a major villain in Season 3. Amaya knows she'll eventually have to leave the Legends and go back to her village so Mari and Kuasa can be born .... but her romance with Nate complicates that immensely as she's torn between the man she loves and the family she knows she's destined to have.
- Remember the New Guy?: If you don't know about the first two seasons of the web-short, then chances are you have no idea who the hell she is, how she came across Oliver, Barry or Laurel.
- Sassy Black Woman: She's definitely this, being feisty and snarky.
- Small Steps Hero: Unlike the larger conflicts the other heroes find themselves in, Mari's main focus is protecting Detroit from ordinary street criminals (or in one case not so ordinary), but we'll help out if called upon.
- Super Senses: She can catch a person's scent similarly to a bloodhound by channelling the spirit of a wolf or a bear. She can also enhance her sight and auditory senses by channelling a bird of prey.
- Super Strength: By summoning the spirit of a gorilla, a rhino or an elephant, she gains this becoming incredibly strong. Damien Darhk has quite a challenge repelling her power.
- Super Toughness: She withstood crashing into a steel gate by channeling an armadillo.
- Token Minority: She's adopted by the Caucasian McCabe couple.
- Uncertain Doom: Her grandmother refuses to go back to 1942 and opts to stay with the Legends, so what will happen to Mari is up in the air. Eventually subverted in that Amaya goes back to 1942 before time solidifies after seeing a newscast about her granddaughter ... only to rejoin the Legends when she's having trouble with her totem.
Charles "Chuck" McCabe
Voiced by: Neil Flynn
Played by: Eli Gabay
Appearances: Vixen | Legends of Tomorrow
Mari's foster father.
- Celebrity Paradox: Cisco frequently mentions Mean Girls in his blog. His voice actor played the father of the film's protagonist.
- Good Parents: He's quite supportive of Mari, and happily bails her out of prison.
- Parental Substitute: For Mari, being her adopted father and all.
- Skeptic No Longer: After Mari demonstrates her necklace's powers to him.
Patricia "Patty" McCabe
Voiced by: Kari Wührer
Mari's foster mother.
- Ambiguous Situation: She's nowhere to be found in The Present Day and the reason is yet to be addressed.
- Missing Mom: As detailed in Ambiguous Situation above.
- One Steve Limit: Shares her first name with Patty Spivot from The Flash (2014).
- Parental Substitute: For Mari, being her adopted mother and all.
Prof. Adam Macalaster
Voiced by: Sean Patrick Thomas
A university professor who studies ancient artifacts.
- Easily Forgiven: Despite working with Kuasa, Mari still contacts him for help in both Season 2 and in Arrow.
- HeelFace Turn: Becomes a genuine ally of Mari in Season 2.
- Mr. Exposition: He provides info to Mari on the totems.
- Punch-Clock Villain: The only reason he was even working with Kuasa was because she offered him a very large research grant. He realizes how stupid this was of him as he let the money bind him to danger Mari was in.
- Relationship Upgrade: As mentioned in Legends of Tomorrow, at some point off-screen, he became Mari's boyfriend.
Played By: Osric Chau
Appearances: Crisis On Infinite Earthsnote
A physics professor living in Ivy Town, revealed to be the Paragon of Humanity.
- Action Survivor: He had no combat training before, but he still defends himself decently against the Shadow Demons.
- Ascended Fanboy: He is ecstatic to meet his idol Ray Palmer and equally excited to meet real superheroes like Elongation Man. He also gets the chance to be a hero himself.
- The Chosen One: Unlike the other Paragons, he was not a hero when he got sought out as a Paragon.
- Continuity Snarl: Ryan was previously mentioned by Nora as one of Barry's friends in the future. However, due to constant meddling with time by both the various speedsters and the Legends, his fate and status were frequently changing until the Crisis.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Joins the ranks of Ray Palmer, Cisco, and even Lex Luther as another esteemed inventor.
- Minored In Ass Kicking: Despite having no powers, gadgets, or formal combat training, he doesnt fare too bad against the Shadow Demons.
- Papa Wolf: He shields his daughter from a Shadow Demon during the Crisis.
- Refused the Call: When the heroes first come to recruit him, he finds the idea of him being a Paragon to be ludicrous and states he is no hero. Iris does talk him into joining though.
- Reluctant Hero: At first he Refused the Call, saying that if it was the end of the world then he would prefer to spend it with his family. However Iris eventually talks him into joining.
- Science Hero: What he lacks in powers, he makes up for in scientific prowess.
- The Team Normal: Even more so than the usual Badass Normals who fit this trope. Ryan is the only Paragon who has no powers, gadgets, or any formal combat training. He isnt even a hero and is just a regular guy.
- Young Future Famous People: If Nora's lead to believe, he helps design one of The Flash's best suits and becomes one of Barry's best friends.
Played By: Susie Abromeit
Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow
Ray Palmer's mother.
- Adaptation Name Change: In the comic books, Ray Palmer's mother is named Susan (which is ironically the name of her actress).
- Adult Fear: She is visibly bothered by Ray's Friendless Background.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's unknown if she is still alive in The Present Day. Her comicbook counterpart is a Posthumous Character.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: Subjected to mind control by the Dominator Queen.
- Ms. Fanservice: She's a very attractive woman.
- Stacy's Mom: Played With. Nate thinks she's hot (which is true), much to Ray's annoyance. However, she's in her prime and they are of the same age when Nate hits on her.
Ray Palmer's father.
Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow
Ray's younger brother.
- Adaptation Name Change: Ray Palmer's brother in the comics is named Danny.
- Annoying Younger Sibling: Ray's dialogue implies that they've never really gotten along.
- The Ghost: He doesn't actually appear in the episode he's first mentioned in. Justified, as the episode was set 150 years after the present day; Syndey would have been long dead by then. Less justified in "Phone Home" which takes place during Ray's childhood and he's nowhere to be seen.
- Jerkass: He hijacked his presumed dead brother's legacy, taking credit for the founding of Palmer Tech. Doesn't exactly paint the nicest picture of the guy.
- Our Founder: Palmer Tech keeps a bust of him in their foyer by 2147.
- Remember the New Guy?: Ray never mentioned having a brother before the team's arrival in 2147.
- Strong Family Resemblance: He and Ray look very much alike, to the point that Ray himself mistook a bust of Sydney for one of himself. It is heavily implied that they are twins, though.
Warden Gregory Wolfe
Played by: Richard Brooks
Appearances: The Flash
The corrupt Warden of the Iron Heights Prison of Keystone City.
- Adaptational Villainy: The comics version of Wolfe was tyrannical and ruthless towards his prisoners, and had little love for those who showed them sympathy (like the Flash). But on rare occasions, he proved that he was a good man underneath it all. This version is utterly corrupt, making deals with a known criminal for money.
- Adaptation Species Change: In the comics, Wolfe is a metahuman, able to mentally affect the muscles of those around him. Here, he's just a normal human.
- Asshole Victim: DeVoe kills him for interfering with his plans. Nobody sheds a tear.
- Big Bad Duumvirate: He provides Amunet with metahumans to experiment on.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: To the world he's the respectable, but hardened warden of the most feared prison in the Mid-West, but in reality he uses his position to traffic meta-human prisoners to line his own pockets.
- Celebrity Paradox: The Law & Order franchise is mentioned during The Flash Season 2. His actor was an original cast member of the parent series.
- Crazy-Prepared: Had a camera focused on Barry's cell, and after finding out that he is the Flash he gave a narcotic into one of his puddings.
- Death by Secret Identity: He gets killed by DeVoe shortly after he finds out Barry is the Flash.
- Exact Words: He wasn't kidding when he told Barry that everybody in his prison is a monster.
- Pet the Dog: Even considering ulterior motives, he does seem to give a few genuine tips to Barry on surviving prison life.
- Punny Name: Gregory Wolfe, a wolf in sheep's clothing.
- Scary Black Man: The way he warns Barry about not trying to be a hero is already unsettling, but when he shows his true colors it's downright creepy.
- Superhuman Trafficking: This is his line of work other than his job at the prison; smuggling out metahuman inmates so that he can sell them off.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Gets posthumously called a hero by Mayor Van Buren although he was trying to sell metahumans to Amunet Black before being murdered. By the time of Season 5 however, his corruption has been uncovered.
- Wardens Are Evil: Doing metahuman traficking surely is fucked up.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: He only has four appearances before he's killed.
Known Aliases: Superman, Clark Kent, The Man of Steel, The Big Blue Boy Scout, The Man of Tomorrow
Portrayed By: Tyler Hoechlin (Season 2 onwards) / Kevin Caliber (Pilot only) / Daniel DiMaggio (teenager) /
Voiced By: Gabriel Ortiz (Latin-American Spanish dub), Masashi Tamaki (Japanese dub)
Appearances: Supergirl | Elseworlds note | Crisis on Infinite Earths | Superman And Lois
Kara's cousin... and if you don't know who he is...
- The Ace: Par for the course with Superman.
- Action Dad: The ending of Elseworlds (2018) reveals that he and Lois are expecting. Subverted when Clark states that his impending fatherhood is the reason he's retiring from superheroics.
- Adaptational Curves: A downplayed inversion. He's still a Tall, Dark, and Handsome man like every version of Superman, but he lacks the straight up Heroic Build that the character is a poster boy for, made more obvious in scenes with James Olsen, who plays the trope straight and is both slightly taller and more muscular than he.
- Adaptational Dye Job: Has green eyes, rather than the blue eyes he has in other incarnations.
- Adorkable: Kara notes Clark has "The Klutz" thing down pat. Clark quips it's not an act.
- Aerith and Bob: Spelling aside, his Krptonian first name doesn't sound out of place on Earth.
- All-Loving Hero: Very much so. He cares about humanity and will save them from any threat, even themselves.
- Always Someone Better: Kara is quite self-conscious about being in the shadow of her famous cousin, even though she was originally intended to be his mentor. Subverted as of the Season 2 finale however, as Kara takes him down while mind-controlled and she challenges Rhea for Earth instead of him.
- And Starring: Is credited with "Special Guest Star" citation.
- Arch-Enemy: Despite not being a major player in The 'Verse, he has two of them:
- Babies Ever After: The end of Elseworlds reveals that Lois is pregnant and the beginning of Crisis on Infinite Earths reveals that its a boy. Post-Crisis gives them two sons.
- Badass Baritone: He has a nicely resonant voice, as is tradition.
- Badass Cape: Part of his Iconic Outfit. He is the Trope Namer and Trope Codifier of The Cape for a reason.
- Bash Brothers: Becomes this with J'onn after they resolve their issues.
- Big Brother Instinct: Again cousin, though Kara often assures him its okay and she can handle many crisis, Clark will always offer his assistance and, if need be, will drop everything to come to her rescue.
- Big Brother Mentor: To Kara. Well, big cousin mentor. Ironically, Kara was his Cool Big Sis back on Krypton, but her being stuck in the Phantom Zone en route to Earth meant he had a head start and is now older than her.
- Big Little Brother: To his older cousin Kara. Even if you don't factor her being stuck in the Phantom Zone, he'll most probably outgrow her anyway.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He was mind-controlled by Myriad at the end of Season 1, and put under Rhea's thrall at the end of "Resist".
- Breakout Character: He first went from The Faceless in Supergirl Season 1 to a somewhat important guest character in Season 2. And while he was absent for the entire third season, he then reappeared in the Elseworlds crossover, as well as in Crisis on Infinite Earths, before finally receiving his own spin-off series alongside his wife.
- But Now I Must Go: Upon retiring to start a family with Lois, he entrusts Kara as the sole protector of the Earth.
- The Cape: He's the Trope Namer and Trope Codifier! Several characters mention his heroic deeds, though we don't get to see them.
- Chest Insignia: It's the El family crest, and it translates to "stronger together."
- Chick Magnet: In his very first full appearance, he gets attention from no less than three women (in order; Alex, Cat and Lena), all without any effort on his part, has a Woman Scorned in Maxima, and is in an established relationship with Lois. (Also noteworthy: Alex later comes out as a lesbian. She still thinks he smells terrific.)
- Child of Two Worlds: He was born on Krypton but was raised on Earth.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: As per the traditional Superman, he always saves civilians. One scene has him shielding a family from a blast with his cape.
- Clark Kenting: Again, the Trope Namer and Trope Codifier. While it wasn't shown here until Season 2, James accidentally slipping his Secret Identity to Winn allowed the latter to take a second look for confirmation.
- Demoted to Extra: Justified. Since this is a show about his cousin, he is treated as a Hero of Another Story who is the Guest-Star Party Member everytime he appears.
- The Dreaded: In the first season at least one Fort Rozz escapee wants nothing to do with Supergirl because some of them have learned that bad things happen when they antagonize someone with that symbol on their chest.
- Experienced Protagonist: He's already a seasoned superhero when Kara arrived on Earth.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Winn thoroughly compliments his physical appearance, and Alex, who comes out as a lesbian later that season, comments that he "smells terrific."
- The Everyman: As Clark Kent, he's just a farmer from Kansas who moved to the City of Tomorrow as an adult and got a job as a reporter.
- Extreme Doormat: Not quite a doormat, but Clark is still too good-natured to turn down doing someone a favor. When Sherloque bamboozles him into delivering an alimony cheque for his ex living on Earth-38, he actually does get to it. The encounter was apparently extremely awkward as she was really rather pissed off that he turned Superman into a delivery boy.
- Face Death with Dignity: He's one of the six last survivors of the entire Multiverse, and spends his final moments telling off the Anti-Monitor that the Paragons will stop him, even given a worried Iris a nod of comfort before being erased.
- The Faceless: In his brief appearances in the first and third episodes, the lighting shadows his face and he is seen mostly from behind. In "Myriad", he is shown from a distance, obscuring his features, and later, in the season finale, lying down recuperating and showing just his boots. It's finally averted when he appears in the second season premiere. He now appears in the Season 2 opening credits as well.
- Famed in Story: Although clearly stated right from the pilot, it really shows up in the Season 2 premiere when he stops being The Faceless and visits the DEO office. Most of the staff are awestruck at his presence, and these are people who not only work with one superhero, they have another one as their boss.
- Family Theme Naming: With his cousin Kara aka Supergirl.
- Farm Boy: He grew up in a farm on Smallville, which is where Barry Allen and Oliver Queen from Earth-1 found him while they were looking for Kara.
- Flying Brick: He's Superman. He's super strong and super durable and he can fly owing to his Kryptonian physiology.
- The Ghost: In the first season. As an adult, he's only seen in profile when on camera, and has only "spoken" to Kara via a chat window. References to him are usually through eponyms, rather than by name. His only significant appearance otherwise was in a dream that Kara had in "For The Girl Who Has Everything" where he was still a child (played by Daniel DiMaggio). This changes with the move to The CW with a new adult actor being cast.
- Good Is Not Soft: While he always prefers to be as gentle as possible, he doesn't hold back against either of the Metallos, who've proved to be utterly ruthless. According to later eps, he also killed Zod when they fought, before the series started.
- Good Is Old-Fashioned: Has hints of this, what with the fact that he won't drink and fly (even though he can't get drunk) and proposes to Lois on bended knee.
- Guest-Star Party Member: Essentially his role everytime he shows up.
- Hero of Another Story: He's already an experienced superhero by the start of the story.
- He Who Must Not Be Heard: In the first season, even if he does show up (as an adult), he never speaks a single line.
- He Who Must Not Be Seen: When Kara communicates with him in the first season, it's through online chat, and when he does show up on-screen (as an adult), he's The Faceless, or Kara is in the midst of blacking out.
- Hollywood Nerd: Still demonstrates the classic Clark Kent awkwardness, but just about every woman he meets is firmly in agreement how incredibly handsome he is.
- Hope Bringer: As always, Superman inspires hope.
- Human Alien: Just like every other Kryptonian.
- Iconic Outfit: If it's not obvious enough, his superhero costume.
- Ideal Hero: He's Superman! Of course this is a given.
- In Spite of a Nail: During Crisis on Earth-X Eobard Thawne mentions that he faced a version of Clark in the future. According to him Clark was fast...but Eobard's faster.
- Interspecies Romance: He is currently in a relationship with Lois, though at the start of Season Two, Kara mentions that he is a "boyfriend", so they are not yet married. However, he proposes at the end of "Elseworlds."
- I Work Alone: Kara spends some time trying to copy this aspect of his hero work before deciding to embrace the more team-based approach her Kryptonian upbringing instilled in her.
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: Tyler Hoechlin's Superman isn't lacking in that department.
- Leaning on the Fourth Wall: A robber tries punching Supes after the latter proves he's Immune to Bullets. Superman mocks the crook's Genre Blindness by wondering why he'd think his fist would be effective after bullets proved useless.
- Mr. Fanservice: Cat, Alex, and Winn seem to think so.
- Nerds Are Sexy: He's just as adorkable as Kara. Doesn't stop Cat from blatantly Eating the Eye Candy whenever he's around as Clark.
- Never Gets Drunk: But he still won't drink and fly, which Kara considers proof of what a nerd he is.
- Nice Guy:
- As is tradition for the character, when we finally meet him, he proves very friendly and noble, with a wry sense of humor to boot, and is nothing less than sweet and encouraging towards Kara. He even turns his head when a bank robber tries punching him, just to soften the damage to the dude's hand.
- When Cisco refers to Kara as his "favourite Kryptonian" right to Clark's face, Superman just grins.
- Not So Above It All: Applauds both Kara and Mon-El's Heroic Sacrifice, putting the good of the world before each other, and admits to Kara if it had been him and Lois, he may not have been able to make the same choice.
- Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Most of his superhero adventures are off-screen.
- Older Than They Look: Superman Hand Waves the fact that he doesn't look 12 years older than Kara because Kryptonians age slower on Earth (likely due to the yellow sun).
- Passing the Torch: Upon retiring, he entrusts Kara as the sole protector of the Earth, Metropolis included.
- Perma-Stubble: He has a very short beard.
- Primary-Color Champion: As ever. Unlike Kara, he has a more "classic" S-shield.
- Red Baron: "The Man of Steel", "The Big Blue Boy Scout" and "The Man of Tomorrow" are the only ones confirmed in this version, though canonically he has tons.
- Related in the Adaptation: The show's version of Non becomes part of his extended family due to him being married to Kara's maternal aunt.
- Retired Badass: Retires from superheroics after the ending of Elseworlds (2018) due to his impending fatherhood.
- Secret Keeper: For a while he was the only person on Earth who knew "Hank Henshaw" is actually J'onn J'onzz.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: He hoped that Kara would become a hero like him and sent James to keep an eye on her, though with instructions to let her make the decision herself.
- Strong and Skilled: Not only does he have superpowers, but he has fighting skills to put those powers to good use. This allows him to keep up with his Alternate Self on Earth-96.
- Superheroes Wear Capes: He is the Trope Namer and Trope Codifier of The Cape for a reason.
- Superman Stays Out of Gotham:
- He intervenes to save Kara from Reactron after James calls for assistance. After that, he promises never to intervene in National City's affairs so that she can become her own hero. He later gets concerned again after Astra's army escalate their war, to which Kara assures him she'll ask for his help if she really thinks she needs it.
- In Season Two, he and Kara team up for the entire premiere episode, but he also decides to stick around at the end of it, only returning home once Metallo is defeated.
- The reason why he doesn't help more often with DEO cases is that he had a falling out with J'onn over his decision to stockpile Kryptonite, although they reconciled.
- Reaches almost ridiculous levels in Season 3 where, despite the worldkillers being, well, potentially world-killers, his cousin being rendered comatose after being defeated by Reign, his former Legion teammates coming back from the future, and a piece of Krypton being discovered intact with his own aunt still alive upon it, Superman is nowhere to be found and no one appears to even think of asking him for help (or come to Argo City and see his family).
- However, for the Season 3 finale, there is at least the explanation of him doing damage control in Madagascar.
- Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He stands six feet tall and is ogled by multiple characters.
- 10-Minute Retirement: Comes out of retirement to assist in the fight against the Anti-Monitor in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
- The Teetotaler: He refuses to drink alcohol of any sort, regardless of the fact that his powers prevent him from getting drunk anyway.
- Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm (his Earth identity, to be specific).
- Unseen No More: He was constantly teased in Season 1 as the show's favorite Easter Egg, being constantly mentioned and rarely directly. Even the few times he did appear he would be The Faceless. This finally changes as of Season 2 following the network change for the show, where he shows up proper and assists Kara as a Guest-Star Party Member when he does.
- The Voiceless: He had no speaking lines as an adult in Season 1, once communicating with Kara through online chat. Not anymore in Season 2.
- Vitriolic Best Buds: James says that he and an infamous unnamed vigilante are friends despite their different approach in heroics, while Winn quickly points out that the two are more "Frenemies".
- Clark also had hints of this with J'onn; while they respected each other, they fell out over J'onn stockpiling Kryptonite. However, they make up for it in season 2 when Clark accepts that J'onn really has his and Kara's best interests at heart, and J'onn offers all of the Kryptonite to him in a gesture of trust.
- We Used to Be Friends: Both James and Lillian have mentioned in different occasions that Clark and Lex Luthor were once the best of friends.
- The Worf Effect: He loses to Supergirl in the second season finale when believing she was Zod while under the influence of silver kryptonite, despite his admitting he was at full strength, in order to justify Kara being the one to face Rhea in combat for the earth. Possibly Fridge Logic given he's clearly overcome by rage and reduced to Unskilled, but Strong while Kara uses skill to even the playing field. Indeed a few scenes later when sparring he's having to teach her moves he learned on Warworld which he didn't bother using in their earlier fight.
Portrayed By: Elizabeth Tulloch
Appearances: Elseworlds note | Crisis on Infinite Earths | Superman And Lois
A renowned reporter from the Daily Planet. She is Sam Lane's eldest daughter and Lucy Lane's older sister. Also Clark Kent's significant other. And Cat Grant's professional rival.

- Action Mom: She's not afraid to get physical even while pregnant with Clark's child.
- Alliterative Family: With her sister Lucy.
- Alliterative Name: Perhaps the most prominent person with the L.L initials in the entire Superman mythos.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Zig-Zagged. She's very snarky towards Oliver, but not to anyone else.
- Cool Big Sister: While it's unknown her relationship with Lucy is, she does seem to have this with Kara, given that Clark functions as a Cool Big Bro, and Kara is incredibly fond of her. She also seems to trust Kara completely, given that Lois almost immediately drops her initial suspicion and begins to trust Barry and Oliver after learning they are friends of Kara.
- Drop the Hammer: Her Weapon of Choice during Elseworlds, first attempting to use one on Oliver and Barry then bringing a huge one when aiding Kara and the latter two on Earth-1.
- Eating the Eye Candy: She may love Clark, but after coming across the other versions of Superman across the Multiverse, she and Iris can't help but admire the many other Hunks that don the cape.
- Gag Nose: Cat makes fun of her nose in one episode, though this is more of Informed Flaw.

Portrayed By: Emma Tremblay
Samantha's daughter, with whom she was pregnant already as a teenager. She is a huge fan of Supergirl.
- Adult Fear: Is repeatedly put into dangerous situations, much to the horror of her mother.
- Ambiguously Human: Lena's research shows that the Worldkillers' DNA rewrites itself when their Worldkiller selves are dominant and is human when their human personas are in control. Thus, there's no reason to think Ruby, who is Sam's daughter, not Reign's, is anything but human. However, Sam is bred from Kryptonian DNA, so it could be possible whatever power Ruby has, if she has any at all, is suppressed by the human DNA.
- Children Are Innocent: Is consistently portrayed as a very sweet and good-natured, if a bit naive, kid.
- Deliberately Distressed Damsel: After figuring out that her mother has powers, she walks into the middle of chaos caused by Psi to make them appear again.

Dr. Eliza Danvers

- And Starring: Is credited with a "Special Guest Star" citation.
- Big Damn Hero: She comes to the rescue in "Medusa", curing Mon-El and J'onn of their respective maladies in less than 24 hours of receiving a vector from which to work from.
- Hot Scientist: She's a scientist and is definitely not bad-looking.
- Mama Bear: When the real Hank Henshaw attempts to claim Kara for the DEO, she is his most adamant opposition.
- Motherly Scientist: Literally for Kara, as she helped both her and her cousin adjust to Earth while also studying them.
- Parental Favoritism: Eliza gets accused of this, due to always treating Kara with kid gloves while pushing Alex to protect her. She had a very good reason for this.
- Silver Vixen: Even at her age note , Dr. Danvers would still turn quite a few heads.
- Team Mom: When ever she's involved with the DEO, she takes this role. Often does so outside this capacity for Kara and Alex's friends as well.

- Early-Bird Cameo: Introduced through a flashback in Season One before formally appearing as a villain in Season Two.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He loves his father.
- Evil Former Friend: His introduction through a flashback in Season One shows him being cozy with the Danvers sisters. Kara even regretfully mentions all the decent things he has done for her and Alex before officially branding him as an enemy.
- Evil Genius: He's no dummy and did his research before enacting his plan. He even knew about J'onn and saw through him posing as his dad almost instantly.
- Ironic Name: Meta example. He's originally named Dick in the comics. With his Adaptational Villainy, it would have been more appropriate.
- Knight of Cerebus: He is one of the very few villains in Supergirl to not play into the campiness of the old Superman comics, which makes the scenes with him so much more terrifying, particularly that he's accounted for everything the heroes have thrown at him despite having no powers himself.
- Manipulative Bastard: He manages to convince Maggie to break his father out of jail when Kara won't.
- Stalker Without a Crush: He watched Alex and Maggie from afar for a very long time until he was ready to kidnap Alex.

- Expy: For many Bond villains but Goldfinger in particular.
- Graceful Loser: Congratulates Barry and Ralph on a "wunderbar" performance after they defeat him.
- Gratuitous German: Throws in a lot of (horribly pronounced) German words.
- Secret Identity Apathy: Doesn't even bother unmasking Barry when he has him captured. This proves to be his undoing, as Ralph's plan to foil him wouldn't have worked had he known Barry was the Flash.
- Shock and Awe: What he uses as weapons, combined with Power Fist.
Played by: Rebecca Roberts
Appearances: The Flash
A criminal appearing at Remington Meister's auction.

Cat Grant's oldest son who was raised by his father.
- Adaptation Name Change: In the comics, Cat's son is named Adam Morgan. Here, he retains the first name but his last name has been changed to Foster.

- Casting Gag: Played by Melissa Benoist's former Glee co-star and then-husband.
- Decomposite Character: With his half-brother Carter Grant, for Cats son in the comics, Adam Morgan. He gets the name while Carter gets the age.
- Long Bus Trip: Very unlikely to appear again due to Cat being demoted to a Recurring Character. His actor's divorce from Melissa Benoist also does not help.
- Long-Lost Relative: For Cat and her side of the family.
- Missing Mom: Cat was away most of his life. He resents her for that.
- Morality Pet: For Cat, even more so than her younger son Carter, because she views her When You Coming Home, Mom? situation with Adam as My Greatest Failure.
- Odd Name Out: Notice how his name doesn't have the phonetic "K" sound like the rest of his maternal relatives? Justified that his father probably named him.
- Sibling Triangle: He likes Kara, while Carter has a crush on Supergirl.
- Third-Option Love Interest: For Kara, with Winn and James being the main Betty and Veronica.

- No Name Given: Not his last name, anyway.

- Action Mom: You hurt her son and she'll kick your ass.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She seems to not like Oliver.
- Ancestral Weapon: An ancient Masamune blade. It has been passed down her family through the first son for generations (apparently there was no son in hers).
- Badass Normal: She killed a member of the League of Assassins. One must be to even require to be a member.
- Battle Couple: With Maseo if the situation calls for it.
- Celebrity Paradox: Game of Thrones is acknowledged to exist in this universe during an episode of The Flash (2014). Her actress starts appearing on that show around the same time she's still appearing on Arrow.
- Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Even after she dons the Iconic Outfit, she's never once refereed to as "Katana".
- Cradling Your Kill: How she killed Maseo.
- Dark and Troubled Past: She's originally from Japan, and the way she pointedly dodges any questions about why she's now living in Hong Kong definitely implies this.
- Defrosting Ice Queen: To Oliver eventually. Their relationship is much better in the present day scenes.
- Died in Your Arms Tonight: Poor Tatsu has to see her husband and child die in her hands on two different occasions.
- Emotionless Girl: Rarely changes her expression or the tone of her voice, but still makes it clear that she's not a fan of Oliver.
- Expository Hairstyle Change: She's sporting a shorter and more wavier hair in the present day scenes.
- Fire-Forged Friends: While initially dismayed at Oliver's presence due to Waller's machinations, he eventually earns her trust due to him helping her family every way he can.

- Mama Bear: Got very angry and broke out the katana when China White burst into their apartment and threatened her son.
- Misplaced Retribution: She makes it very clear that she hates Oliver staying with them and wants him gone, ignoring that he wants to be anywhere else more, even back on the island if possible. She never seems to bring up the fact that Waller is forcing her husband to keep him there.
- Necromancer: Maseo implies this, saying she's the one who brought Oliver Back from the Dead.
- Outliving One's Offspring: It is heavily implied that Akio is dead in the present day scenes. Confirmed in "The Fallen".
- Platonic Life-Partners: With Oliver. Out of all the attractive women Oliver met on his five years away from home, she was the only one he never had any romantic tension/relations with. This was because Tatsu was already married to Oliver's friend and handler Maseo.
- Tomboyish Name: Tatsu is commonly used by males in Japan.
- Warrior Therapist: She serves as this to Maseo during her and Team Arrow's assault on Nanda Parbat.
- Yamato Nadeshiko: Japanese? Check. Calm reserved manner? Check. Dedicated and obedient to her family? Check. Dangerous in defense of her family? Check!

- Morality Chain: For his father.
- Morality Pet: For his mother. Also to Oliver when he was in Hong Kong.

- Tagalong Kid: Justified due to him being very young.
Played By: Celina Jade
The other daughter of Yao Fei and Shado's twin sister living in Hong Kong. She's been wondering what happened to her father and twin sister, who disappeared three years prior her meeting with Oliver.
- Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Is very wary of Oliver when she met him.

- Disappeared Dad: She doesn't know that he was stranded on a not-so Deserted Island where he met his end.
- Identical Twins: With Shado.
- Light Feminine Dark Feminine: Zig-Zagged. This is invoked by their clothes; Shado wore mostly gray and black (though justified due to being stranded on a not-so Deserted Island and all) and was quite an Action Girl and The Lad-ette, while Mei herself wore mostly white and acts more feminine. However, Mei is rightfully savvy not to trust strangers (in her case Oliver) compared to Shado who trusted the wrong person (Edward Fyers) which resulted to a lot of shit which ultimately led to her death.
- Military Brat: Her father was a (former) General in the Chinese army.
- Missing Mom: Her mother is never mentioned.
- Neutral Female: Yao Fei apparently didn't trained her the same way he did Shado or she's just not a fighter. Either way, she just hid with Akio while Oliver solely took care of Waller's A.R.G.U.S.' squad pursuing him and the kid until Maseo and Tatsu arrived.
- Parental Abandonment: It was never stated what happened to her and Shado's Missing Mom, but we all know what happened to Yao Fei...
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Appears much more feminine than her Tomboyish Action Girl twin.
- Uncertain Doom: Shortly after Oliver sees her, the Alpha/Omega virus outbreak happened. As of Season 4, her fate is not yet revealed.
- Walking Spoiler: Her entire existence can be spoiler-y if you haven't seen Season 2 or/and the latter half of Season 3.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: It is unknown what happened to her after the Alpha/Omega virus outbreak in Hong Kong near the end of Arrow Season 3.
Red Daughter / "Linda Lee"

Known Aliases: Snowbird, Red Daughter, Linda Lee, "Supergirl"
Portrayed By: Melissa Benoist

- Alliterative Name: As Linda Lee.
- Ambiguously Evil: So far, she hasn't done anything villainous per se, but it is clear that the Kaznians controlling her are up to no good. It's later shown that she is basically just as heroic as Kara, but unfortunately Lex manages to manipulate her into becoming his lackey.
- Amnesiacs are Innocent: All Red Daughter remembers is the name "Alex" and a desire to help others. Lex takes advantage of both to get her on his side.
- Chronic Hero Syndrome: She has this initially, but since she can't control her powers the results are ... messy.
- Does Not Know His Own Strength: Initially, given that she's a clone created not too long ago.
- The Dragon: Becomes Lex's enforcer after the latter managed to manipulate her long enough.
- Evil Knockoff: Played With. She is a clone of Kara created to do Lex's bidding, but she herself is not an evil.
- Fusion Dance: She merges with Kara after Lex fatally injures her.
- Gender Flip: She is based off the Red Son, who is a copy of Superman rather than of Supergirl.
- Genius Bruiser: In addition to her vast physical power, she is incredibly smart, reading through the books sent to her very quickly and later recalling passages to near-perfection. She also shows an emotional intelligence and insight that nearly derails Lex Luthor's manipulations, recognizing Kara's compassion and Lex's motives of envy and ambition.
- Hidden Villain: Outside of the Kaznia military, no one knows there exists a clone of Supergirl that is being used by the military to be their weapon.
- Mythology Gag: While Kara Danvers underwent an Adaptation Name Change, her comic name Linda Lee instead went to Red Daughter.
- No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Delivers a vicious one to Kara, her additional powers certainly helping.
- No Name Given: Initially, there wasn't an official name for the clone, but press releases have called her character Red Daughter, a Shout-Out to the Superman story of Superman: Red Son. Lex later calls her that himself. Red Daughter also uses the alias "Linda Lee", as a homage to the Silver Age.
- Obliviously Evil: She is genuinely good, sweet, and compassionate, but she's manipulated to serve the agenda of Lex Luthor.
- Redemption Equals Death: After discovering Luthor's treachery and initially being subdued by him, she later escapes and saves Kara from him, taking a full Kryptonite blast that fatally injures her. Before she succumbs to her wounds, she merged into Kara.
- Rousseau Was Right: Despite having been created from the Harun-El, she is not villainous like Reign and has the same drive to protect the innocent as Kara; she's simply being led down the wrong path by Lex.
- Sensory Overload: Happens when she's exposed to yellow sunlight, resulting in Power Incontinence.
- Super-Speed Reading: She reads all of the books Lex Luthor gives to her in this fashion.
- Unwitting Pawn: To Lex.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Lex apparently kills her during his scheme to portray himself as America's saviour. While she survives this, he then has her put in a power draining device, fully intending to kill her.

Yao Fei Gulong

- Action Dad: He has two grown up daughters.
- Adaptational Badass: The comic Yao Fei is a downplayed Combat Medic who is more of a Squishy Wizard and relies more on force-fields. Shado's father in the comics was part of the Yakuza, but his only physically capable skill was being able to endure lots of pain. Here, he's a a former army General and a very competent fighter who becomes Oliver's first mentor in on the island.
- Anti-Hero: What he actually is, as the reason he seems to either help or harm Oliver at any given moment is due to circumstances he's desperately trying to arrange.
- Badass Beard: He sports a fantastic beard which adds to the badass image.
- Boom, Headshot!: Happens to him in "Darkness On The Edge of Town".
- Composite Character: In the comics, Yao Fei is part of a Chinese superhero group called "Great Ten". However, his combat skills matches that of a member called Celestial Archer better than his counterpart. Also, to Shado's Yakuza father Tomonaga.
- Dragon with an Agenda: He just wants his daughter to be safe. His Heel Turn is because said villains have her.
- Far East Asian Terrorists: What he's supposed to be eventually. See The Scape Goat for details.

- Love Makes You Evil: Pretty much, though he does his best to try and avoid it.

- Mentor Occupational Hazard: Fyers shoots him in the head at the end of "Darkness on the Edge of Town," leaving Oliver to put his lessons into practice without him.
- Mysterious Past: Season 5 reveals that before he got to the island, he met Talia A-Ghul and she was his mentor and was the one who taught him to shoot a bow.
- Only One Name: It's eventually revealed that his full name was Yao Fei Gulong, but it's unclear if Yao Fei is his given name or surname (realistically it would be the former).
- Papa Wolf: Works for Fyers because he has his daughter, Shado. The second she's free and with Slade and Oliver, he makes them leave him to Fyers's mercy and get her to safety.
- Posthumous Character: He is dead for about four or five years before the start of the series.
- Pretty Little Headshots: His end is fairly clean, all things considered.
- Related in the Adaptation: He and Shado are not related in any way in the comics.
- Second Episode Introduction: Introduced in the second episode of the entire series.
- Sink-or-Swim Mentor: His general way of "teaching" Oliver involves throwing him into situations and seeing how he gets out of them by himself. Lampshaded in "Betrayal".Slade: I think Yao Fei sent you because he knew I cannot take the airstrip alone.
Oliver: ...sounds like Yao Fei.
- The Scape Goat: For a massacre committed by the Chinese Army, then was almost made one for Fyers' terrorist attack.
- The Straight and Arrow Path: He is very proficient with a bow and arrow, and slightly teaches Oliver on how to use it. His daughter is the one who thoroughly trained Ollie, though.
- Training from Hell: Gave this to Oliver when he was stranded for five years.

Daughter of Yao Fei, Shado was trained by him as a young girl. She was kidnapped by Fyers men and brought to the island to force Yao Fei to cooperate. She eventually escaped and joined up with Oliver and Slade Wilson, continuing her father's training of Oliver and entering into a romantic relationship with him.
- Action Girl: She is able to fight several of Fyers' men and manages to escape with Oliver and Slade.
- Adaptational Consent: Her relationship with Oliver in this version is entirely consensual, while in the comics she raped him to conceive a child when he was delirious with fever from a wound (that she gave him).
- Adaptational Heroism: Shado in the comics is a Dark Action Girl who raped Oliver. Here she's his mentor and their relationship is consensual.
- Adaptational Nationality: Shado was Japanese in the comics; here, she's Chinese.
- Animal Motif: Like Oliver, she has a tattoo of a dragon on her shoulder.
- Boom, Headshot!: How she's killed by Ivo.
- Brainy Brunette: She was in med school before being kidnapped by Fyers.
- Damsel out of Distress:
- She is first introduced as a crying hostage being allowed a brief meeting with her father, but her next appearance warns against first impressions; she takes down several armed men who were supposed to shoot her and escapes.
- Fyers threatens to kill her unless Oliver and Slade give over the circuit board for the missile launcher. She manages to escape on her own.
- Death by Adaptation: Shado did not die in the comics.
- Decomposite Character: Her status from the comics as a bow wielding assassin, having a romantic interest in a hero(ine), and her canonical battle gear (the mouth covering veil and black outfit) was given to Nyssa Al-Ghul in the show. Her role as Emiko Queen's mother is also given to Koizumi Hadachi, her grandmother in the comics.
- Generation Xerox: She met her end the same way her father did; via Boom, Headshot!.
- Identical Twins: It is revealed late in Season 3 that she had one. Her name is Mei.
- In the Hood: Takes to wearing her father's old hood in the Season Two flashbacks.
- I Let Gwen Stacy Die: To Ollie and Slade. After she is mercilessly shot in the back of the head by Ivo, Ollie blames himself for her death, and it along with the Mirakuru is the reason for Slade's Start of Darkness and later FaceHeel Turn.
- Lady of War: Gentle, wise, and mature for her age, and capable of efficiently taking out several soldiers bare-handed or shooting tree branches with great precision.
- Light Feminine Dark Feminine: Zig-Zagged. She had a twin sister who appears more feminine than her. However, said twin is more savvy not to trust a stranger (Oliver) contrary to Shado, who is an Action Girl but still got into a whole lot of shit because she trusted the wrong person (Fyers). Their clothes seems to invoke this too; Shado wore mostly gray and black (though justified due to being stranded on a not-so deserted island and all) while said twin sister wore mostly white.
- Military Brat: Her father was a (former) General in the Chinese army.
- Missing Mom: Her mother is never mentioned.
- Nice Girl: In contrast to her father and Slade, she's nice to Oliver for the most part.

- Only a Flesh Wound: Fyers shoots her in the shoulder, but she's no worse for the wear afterwards.
- Posthumous Character: She is dead for four years before the start of the series.
- Pretty Little Headshots: Subverted. The entrance wound from Ivo shooting her is pretty small, but the amount of blood Slade gets on him from cradling her body makes it clear the exit wound is not pretty.
- Related in the Adaptation: She and Yao Fei are not related in any way in the comics.
- Sadistic Choice: Ivo had Oliver, Shado and Sara Lance captive. He intends to kill one of the girls, but gives Oliver the choice of which girl to spare. Oliver chose Sara. The 'choice' in question was not exactly made by him. When Sara was held at gunpoint, Oliver desperately tried to get in front of her, and Ivo took that action as his choice.
- Sexy Mentor: She was Oliver's archery mentor. Cue mutual sexual tension along the way.
- Skilled, but Naïve: Trusting someone she shouldn't is what got her captured by Fyers in the first place.
- The Squadette: On the island.
- The Straight and Arrow Path: She's proficient with a bow and arrow, and she is the one who properly teaches Oliver on how to use it.
- Teacher/Student Romance: She and Oliver have this in Season Two's flashbacks.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Season 3 revealed she had a twin sister. Said twin appears more feminine than her and is implied not to be an Action Girl.
- Tragic Keepsake: Her father's green hood, which goes both ways. First, she took it after Yao Fei's death. Then, Oliver took it after she dies.
- Trickster Mentor: She strengthens Oliver's arms by having him slap a bowl of water all day, then shows how he can pull a bow better. However, she's nicer about it than his other mentors.
- Unkempt Beauty: Well, she is stranded on an island and on the run from the bad guys.
- Unrelated in the Adaptation: Unlike in the comic books, she is not Emiko Queen's mother (as well as Robert Queen's second wife/mistress) in this continuity.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: These tropes may be at work, as although her father clearly loves her, given the lengths he was willing to go to keep her alive, she implies her training was because he wanted a son.

- Statuesque Stunner: She stands 5'9.

- Ruritania: Located somewhere in Eastern Europe.
- Take Over the World: Well it's not their explicit goal, but as Lynn points out if they did realize their goal of creating a metahuman army nobody else in the world would stand a chance against them so the implications are obvious.
- With Us or Against Us: As Odell explain to Lynn, to Markovia any metahuman who isn't on their side is considered a threat to them.
Played By: Thomas Belgrey
Appearances: Black Lightning
A Markovian Colonel.
- Beard of Evil: Has one.

Appearances: Black Lightning
A nurse in service of the ASA, who is actually alligned with the Markovians.
Tyson Sykes / Gravedigger
Played By: Wayne Brady
Appearances: Black Lightning
The very first Metahuman. He possesses enhanced strength and speed, as well as telepathic powers, who got woken up by the Markovians and has worked for them since.
- Affably Evil: Gravedigger is friendly, honorable, compliments his opponent's fighting skill and wants to avoid unnecessary bloodshed. He also gives every last one of his dead opponents a proper burial, true to his name. Doesn't make him any less dangerous.
- All Your Powers Combined: Due to his stable metagene, he is able to ingest Lynn's serum and keep all the various powers permanently, making him possibly the most powerful metahuman in existence.
- Big Bad Ensemble: Executes Colonel Mosin during the start of Season 3's last arc, making him the primary threat that both Jefferson and his team, as well as the ASA have to face, though Odell still remains a great threat in his own right.
- Brought Down to Normal: Due to Lynn injecting him with the anti-serum, though it is not clear whether it is permanent or not.
- Category Traitor: Lynn is shocked to see an American working for Markovia against his own country.
- Compelling Voice: His most dangerous metahuman power is controlling people through auditory stimulation, which overrides the frontal lobe.

- Make Way for the New Villains: Takes over Colonel Mosin's operation and puts him in his place.
- Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: He defected to Markovia after realizing that no matter how well he served the US, they would always treat him as an inferior, whereas in Markovia, the only person he has to answer to is Mosin.
- Older Than They Look: Fought in World War II and the super solider program that unlocked his metagene also gave him slowed aging.
- Precursors: Somewhat, but in the eyes of metahumans. He was the first metahuman to be put on record; Gambi calls him Meta-Prime. Because of him, all metahumans have a link to him, even though they aren't related to him only through the metagene they all possess. He is also a precursor to Black Lightning; he is Jefferson's great-uncle. The Pierce family inherited their stable metagene from him.
- Scary Black Man: Despite his friendly tendencies, there is something seriously off-putting about his presence.
- The Worf Effect: Gives Khalil a serious ass whooping.
Played by: Dolph Lundgren
The Governor of Krasnoyarsk, Russia and the target of Oliver's revenge in his final year of Hell.
- Action Politician: Governor of a Russian City and is a formidable fighter in his own right.
- Adaptational Villainy: Played With. While his comic counterpart was an ally to the hero Red Star, and is, while aligned with the Soviets, a heroic character. His final appearnce's in the comics would have him instead be as a villain who served as The Man Behind the Man to the Muta Men (metahumans) who served as antagonists in a teen titans story arc.
- Alliterative Name: Konstantin Kovar.
- And Starring: Gets this billing in the guest stars lineup.
- Authority Equals Ass Kicking: His Mooks are tough, but he completely squashed Oliver in their first duel. He also gives him more of a fight than all of his mooks combined in the Season finale, and after crashing down in a helicopter no less.

- Badass in Charge: He is a Governor of a Russian village.
- Big Bad: Of the Arrow Season 5 flashbacks.

- One Steve Limit: He shares his first name with Tommy Merlyn.
- Posthumous Character: Long dead in The Present Day.
John Constantine's older sister.
Played by: Christina Wolfe
Alfred Pennyworth's daughter, a British covert operative with the Special Reconnaissance Regiment, and one of Kate Kane's former combat instructors and lovers. She helps conceal Kate's secret by posing as Batwoman.
- Action Girl: She's a British soldier and was able to pose as a Krav Maga instructor.
- Adaptational Backstory Change:
- In the comics, Julia had no idea Bruce Wayne was Batman for most of her life, and was actually angered by her father working for, for all she knew, a vapid playboy. She also didn't know any other Gothamites beforehand. Here, she was aware of this long before Kate found out, and was even fairly close to Luke Fox.
- In the show, Julia was also one of Kate's instructors during her global training (specifically, in Krav Maga). Needless to say, this did not happen in the source.
- Adaptational Sexuality: It's been hinted in the comics that Julia is gay, or at least finds Kate Kane attractive, but nothing more. In the show, she and Kate had a definite romance while Julia was training her.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: In the comics, she's always had dark hair. Here, she's blonde.
- Badass Gay: While her exact sexuality hasn't been confirmed, she is attracted to women and she does kick a lot of ass
- Compressed Adaptation: Her backstory with Kate, where they worked together (with Julia reporting to Bruce) only for Julia to betray Kate's trust, is more-or-less their dynamic in Batwoman (Rebirth), just under different circumstances and with a definite romance in the show.
- Made of Iron: In "Tell Me the Truth," she gets blasted through a brick wall, then falls three stories onto pavement, and then is involved in a violent auto crash when Kate rescues her. She only gets a few broken ribs from all this; even considering she was wearing the Batsuit, that's something.
- Race Lift: Sort of. In pre-Crisis comics, Julia was white, but from the New 52 onward, she's been biracial; in the show, she's white. The show uses the special operative version of Julia, who is only in New 52 and Rebirth-era comics.
Kuasa / The Water Witch

Mari's older sister, who covets the Anansi totem for herself. She's eventually killed by Eshu, but a few years later, a mysterious witch brings her back to life to serve Mallus.

- Adaptation Dye-Job: Her eyes are gold in Vixen, but brown in Legends of Tomorrow.
- Age Lift: In the comics, Vixen's evil relative is her uncle. Here, she's only more or less a decade older than Mari.

- Broken Pedestal: As a little girl, she idolized her grandmother Amaya, but then becomes appalled at seeing her in love in Nate and remaining on the Waverider, believing Amaya to be putting her own selfish desires above her duty to her village and her family's existence.
- Cain and Abel: She's Mari's sister, and wishes to claim what she feels is her birthright (i.e. the totem) for herself, even at the expense of her sister's life.
- Can't Kill You, Still Need You: With good reason, seeing how killing Amaya puts her very existence at risk.
- Celebrity Paradox: The Disney Animated Canon is confirmed to exist in the Arrowverse and is mentioned in the shows quite a few times. Her voice actress is the official voice of Disney Princess Tiana.
- The Chosen Wannabe: A variant. She was supposed to be the guardian of the Anansi totem, but it bonded with Mari instead. She did not take this well and relentlessly plans to take the totem because she feels it's rightfully hers.
- Dragon with an Agenda: Her main reason for allying with Mallus is the chance to go back in time and save her village from being razed.
- Elemental Shapeshifter: After her resurrection she basically becomes living water. She's able to solidify her form, but can reconstitute herself if she takes damage.
- Enemy Mine: In Vixen Season Two, after getting the Water Totem, she teams up with Mari to fight Eshu, which gets her killed.
- Evil Counterpart: In the first season, she has Mari's powerset when they engage in battle.
- Gender Flip: In the comics, Vixen's evil relative who wants the totem is male.
- Green-Eyed Monster: She resents Mari for a variety of reasons: not only did the totem chose her, but their mother chose to save Mari instead of both of them when their village was attacked.
- Guttural Growler: Her voice is much huskier compared to Mari's.
- HeelFace Door-Slam: After some back and forth, she finally decides to side with her grandmother...and Mallus promptly murders her for it. However...
- HeelFace Return: Thanks to the Legends changing history, her village was never destroyed and Kuasa in the current timeline consequently become a hero like Mari, even having the same costume and sharing the Anansi Totem
- Killed Off for Real: Mallus rips the Water Totem out of her chest after she sides with Amaya. Since that was what resurrected her, she promptly dies. Fortunately, thanks to time-travel shenanigans, she's alive and a hero in the current timeline.
- Kill It with Fire: She dies after being incinerated by Eshu.
- Making a Splash: Her power in Season Two after taking the Water Totem.
- Monster Sob Story: She witnessed her village being ravaged by a warlord and her family abandoning her...it's not hard to see why she became the way she did.
- Motive Decay: In Vixen, she claimed she wanted the Anansi Totem to protect Zambesi; in Legends Season Three, she has no such pretense and actively serves the evil Mallus. When Amaya points this out to her, she gets very defensive, because as it turns out she's working with Mallus in exchange for the chance to stop Eshu from destroying her village.
- Moveset Clone: After stealing the Anansi totem, she gains the same powers that Mari had.
- Naked on Arrival: She makes her first live action appearance without any clothes on, emerging and forming from the water of a lake.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: After she's resurrected, she's impossible to kill or injure; she can simply transform to water just before any attack.

- Transplant: Becomes a main villain in Legends Season Three; however, no matter what show she's on, she still goes up against a Vixen.
- The Unfavorite: How she sees herself ever since her mother chose to get her baby sister, Mari to safety and left her behind.
Species: Human (Empowered via Fire Totem)
Voiced by: Hakeem Kae-Kazim
A Zambesi warlord who seeks all the totems, and obtains the Fire Totem in season 2.
- Adaptational Species Change: A significant example. In the comics Eshu is a literal god (specifically, a trickster god), but here he is an ordinary human, albeit one who becomes enhanced with magical powers.
- Ambadassador: If his claims about being Zambesi's ambassador are true, that is.
- Bald of Evil: There's not a single hair on the top of his head.
- Beard of Evil: ...Though there is hair on his chin.
- Big Bad: Of Vixen Season 2.
- Brought Down to Badass: Even after Mari separates him from the fire totem, Eshu still put's up a formidable fight against her. Under water, no less.
- Celebrity Paradox: LOST was mentioned in the very first episode of Arrow. His voice actor played a backstory antagonist to one of the main characters.
- Composite Character: Has the name of a god in the comics, but his role here as the local warlord who killed Vixen's mother and ravaged her village belongs to Aku Kwesi
- Establishing Character Moment: As soon as he gets the Fire Totem he incinerates the man who sold it to him, showing his disregard for honour and human life.
- Evil Is Burning Hot: He wields the Fire Totem and uses it with impunity for destructive methods; all of the fire in season 2 is associated with him.
- Greater-Scope Villain: He's the warlord who destroyed Mari and Kuasa's home, which is what drove Kuasa on her path of villainy. This continues even after his death, as Kuasa's motivation for joining up with the Cult of Mallus is trying to change history and saving her village from him.
- Gotta Catch 'Em All: He wants to possess all of the totems.
- Hero Killer: Although the "hero" part is questionable, he incinerates Kuasa, Mari's sister. He also killed Amaya when he raided the village.
- Knight of Cerebus: Whenever he shows up, widespread death and destruction are usually to follow.
- Never Found the Body: He is defeated when Mari steals the totem from him and kicks him in the head to the depths of the Detroit River to presumably drown, but his body is never recovered after this.
- Playing with Fire: Quite possibly the most powerful version of this trope in the Arrowverse, as it's unlikely characters like Heat Wave or Firestorm could easily set a whole city on fire even if they wanted to.
- Pyromaniac: He uses his fire powers with total impunity.

- Calling the Old Man Out: On the receiving end. Maggie makes it clear to her father that she's no longer the scared little girl that seeks his approval.Maggie: That little girl, so desperate to win her father's love... you left her on the side of the road. And after all these years, I've been that little girl. Yearning for my papa to come back for me, praying that one day he would see me and love me for who I am. Thank you for coming to the shower, you gave me an amazing gift. You showed me that I'm not that scared little girl in that picture anymore. I'm an adult woman, and I'm happy in my own skin, and I'm so fortunate that I'm surrounded by people who value and cherish me. I finally understand that I don't need you to see me or to get me or to even like me, I don't need anything from you! I'm already good. Good bye, papa.

- Troubled Sympathetic Bigot: While it doesn't excuse his actions, his backstory is rather tragic. He came to America when he was 9, worked in a factory at 11 where all the other (white) boys would beat him because he was Mexican, and worked hard enough that those same boys elected him sheriff as an adult. He tells Maggie he worked that hard so that his children would never have to face that sort of prejudice, and he sees Maggie's homosexuality as something that could hurt her in the long run; he doesn't want her to not get married, he just doesn't want to see it.
