Season 4 lineup note 

A group of individuals initially formed together to stop Vandal Savage's threat. After his defeat, they took it upon themselves to function as a Time Police.


  • Adaptation Species Change: Waverider is a human superhero in the comics. Here, he becomes the heroes' Cool Ship.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: They're basically the Arrowverse version of the Guardians of the Galaxy, being misfit heroes who band together under unlikely circumstances and step up to the call, travel around in a Cool Ship, and end up being a team as close as family.
  • Animal Themed Super Being: Three members are named after birds; White Canary and both Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Taken Up to Eleven with Vixen who has animal superpowers.
  • Anti-Hero Team: Much more lax on killing than Team Arrow or Team Flash. In fact, they were first brought together for the express purpose of killing Vandal Savage.
  • Badass Crew: They're a group consisting of some of the renowned badasses from the different shows of the Arrowverse.
  • Badass Normal: Sara Lance, Leonard Snart, Mick Rory and Rip Hunter do not have powers like Ray Palmer, the Hawks, Firestorm, Nate, and Amaya, though Jax, Ray, and Amaya are also capable of taking care of themselves without use of powers.
  • The Big Guy: Atom, White Canary, Heat Wave, Jax (as Firestorm), Steel, and Kid Flash are the team's go-to guys when it comes to fighting.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: They are prone to it Once a Season.
    • In Season One, it's Hawkman's 22nd Century incarnation, he gets better though. Subverted by Mick as Chronos, where the team original believed him to be brainwashed before he reveals it was actually More Than Mind Control.
    • In Season Two, the entire team sans Nate and Amaya are brainwashed by aliens in the Crossover. They get better. However, Rip is captured and brainwashed by the Legion to be their wet works agent. He gets better.
    • In Season Three, this happens to Sara twice. First by Grodd's telepathy, then when she gets possessed by Mallus via the Death Totem.
  • Breakout Character: The series was developed in the first place after certain characters from other the shows proved to be very popular and needed their own place to play. Specifically from the original lineup were Sara, Ray, Snart, Rory and Firestormnote . Additional members who were transplanted are Wally and Constantine. The other team members either made their debut on Legendsnote  or had Early-Bird Cameo explicity to set up their transition note .
  • Canon Foreigner: While it takes inspiration from two teams in the comics (the Forgotten Heroes and the Time Masters), the Legends are a completely original team created for the Arrowverse with its own unique roster of members.
  • Cast Full of Crazy: By far the wackiest and most illogical of the Arrowverse shows. Since Season Two, the show has abandoned all common sense and have all cast members behaving ludicrously as they mess around in the many historical periods.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Much to Rip's frustration, the team insists on being heroes even when it's in their best interests to lay low.
  • Civvie Spandex: Rip Hunter, Leonard Snart, Mick Rory, Zari and John Constantine, do not wear traditional superhero costumes. However, Mick does have a supervillain costume as the temporal bounty hunter known as Chronos.
  • Comic Book Movies Dont Use Code Names: Downplayed. While they are addressed by their codenames at times, they are mostly referred by their given names. Justified in that as time travelers they don't have a fixed residence and don't really need to worry about hiding their secret identities.
  • Composite Character: They combine The Team that Rip Hunter assembled in the comics to act as Time Police (called the Time Mastersnote ), with the team created to fight Vandal Savage (called The Forgotten Heroes). Both teams have different rosters sans from Rip himself.
  • Cool Ship: The Waverider, which is their means of transport.
  • Destructive Savior: Things have a tendency to get chaotic while they're doing their heroics.
  • Dwindling Party: By Season 3 only three members of the original line up — Sara, Ray, and Mick are left (well four if you count Gideon).
  • Faction Motto: "We screw up things for the better."
  • Failure Hero: Their primary successes in stopping or delaying Savage's rise to power are in preventing their own mistakes from speeding up or otherwise altering the Bad Future for the worse. This is because the Time Masters' Council are manipulating everything to make sure Savage succeeds. After they figure this out, they start doing much better.
  • Elemental Powers: Several of the team have elemental based powers:
  • Fire-Forged Friends: The Legends really don't get along at first, but grow to become True Companions after the Vandal Savage crisis and eventually even consider each other family. Lampshaded by Sara to Wally saying they're the "all-stars of bad first impressions."
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Inverted. The guys sans Carter/Scythian, Nate, and Wally (all whom play the "smash" part straight) are the ones equipped with long-ranged weapons (or power in Stein's and Jax's case as Firestorm), while the girls are mainly equipped for melee combat (aside from Zari).
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: The guys (5'11 Rip, Carter and Jax, 6' Nate, 6'1 Snart, 6'2 Mick and Prof. Stein, and 6'3 Ray) tower over the girls (5'6 Sara and Amaya, and 5'8 Kendra).
  • Hypocrite: Several members of The Team are prone to giving lectures about the dangers of changing the timeline despite them doing exactly the same (if not, worse).
  • Iconic Sequel Characters: All of them except Saranote  were introduced starting at least during the Arrowverse's third year.
  • Invisibility: Their Cool Ship, The Waverider, is capable of turning invisible.
  • It's Personal: The reason the team chooses to stick together at the end of "Pilot, Part 2" is because Savage killed Carter and they want to avenge him.
  • Janitor Impersonation Infiltration: One of the disguises the Legends use on missions.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite all of their extensive meddling in the timeline they never have to face any lasting personal consequences for their actions. This is in direct contrast Barry who made to suffer a lot when he decided to change time by saving his mom in a moment of personal weakness.
  • The Lancer: The Atom, Captain Cold and White Canary take turns. Once Mick rejoins The Team after his stint as Chronos, he also starts playing this role from time to time. During Legends of Tomorrow Season Two, Ray and both halves of Firestorm fill the role.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: In Season Four, the fact that the Legends weren't in the Elseworlds is constantly referenced too. The Legends keep referring to it as "the (annual) crossover" on several occasions while also poking fun at it.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: The Legends are composed of a team of outcasts and misfits, B-List superheroes and villains who find they don't fit in anywhere else.
  • Redeeming Replacement: Despite their shenanigans, the Legends at least act more moral as Time Police than the Time Masters do.
  • Revolving Door Casting: Heroes come and go with each season, some retire some die in the line of service. By Season 3 only three of the original lineup — Sara, Mick, and Ray are left.
  • Rotating Protagonist: The nature of the Ensemble Cast show, where none of the Legends is the definite hero, but each of them take turns in having the main focus depending on the episode.
  • Screw Destiny: Even after The Reveal mentioned above, the rest decided to go along with the mission and become legends on their time. Likewise, Rip's main objective is to stop Savage from becoming the powerful conqueror he will become.
  • Set Right What Once Went Wrong:
    • Their original objective is to correct the Bad Future that Vandal Savage will create.
    • After Savage's defeat, the Legends are tasked with correcting the future from being changed by rogue time travelers.
  • Shapes and Symbols Tropes: Each of them have their own character sigil.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: White Canary's, Hawkman's, and Steel's costumes are sleeveless.
  • The Smart Guy: Half of them can fill the role if needed be, depending on specialization.
    • Professor Stein, Jax, and Ray are the go-to guys when it comes to technology.
    • Rip Hunter, Hawkman, and later Nate are the go-to guys when it comes to history (future knowledge for Rip, past knowledge for both Carter and Nate). Rip and Carter were also the experts on Vandal Savage.
    • Captain Cold was the go-to guy when it came to pragmatism and street-smarts.
    • Gideon is a computer who is stacked with all of the above, though she'll only stick to what she is programmed for since she's an A.I.
    • Once Mick rejoins The Team after his stint as Chronos, he starts playing this role from time to time. He loses most of this by Season Two, but remains the one most in tune with doing things like a criminal (which was also Snart's former role in the team), if needed.
  • Superhero Speciation:
    • Played with. Aside from Atom, White Canary, and Captain Cold, there are actually several overlaps for the team's power sets. The team includes both Firestorm and Heat Wave, two fire-based characters, along with Hawkman and Hawkgirl. From a non-superhero standpoint, there are two scientists on the team: Dr. Martin Stein and Dr. Ray Palmer, as well as two criminals Leonard Snart and Mick Rory. However, given Hawkman is killed in the second episode, this makes Hawkgirl the only one with their power-set.
    • The team gets even more speciation with the addition of Steel and Vixen.
    • By the time of the mid-season finale of Season Three, there is a lot of speciation. Zari is the first wind-based hero. Since Firestorm departed, this leaves Heatwave as the only fire-based member, while Ray Palmer is left as the only scientist and engineer (which both halves of Firestorm previously filled). The team also regains an ice-based member in the form of Captain Cold's Earth-X counterpart, while Kid Flash joins the roster as the first speedster.
    • In Season Four, John Constantine joins as the team's first warlock, while Charlie serves as the first Token Non-Human.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: All the guys stand 5'11 and above. Snart, Mick, and Carter are also Tall, Dark, and Snarky (and Rip is Tall, Blond and Snarky).
  • The Team: One of the main points of the series is for them to become one.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: They have a hard time dealing with each other just as they are dealing with Savage and the Time Masters.
  • Time Police: They take over this role after blowing up the previous Time Police, the Time Masters.
  • Time Travel: Their mission is to fight Vandal Savage in different points in history.
  • Token Evil Teammate:
    • They have two, Captain Cold and Heat Wave, until Cold sacrifices himself so it's just Heat Wave.
    • Zari is also introduced as a fugitive with a long history of lawbreaking, though she's a lot less morally ambiguous than the Rogues were.
    • Charlie began as the Legends' enemy and remains in the team in exchange for some degree of freedom.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Season 3, justified due to them being bitter about Rip tossing them aside in favor of the Time Bureau.
  • Transplant:
    • Sara, Ray, Earth-1 Snart, Rory, and Stein were major recurring or/and key characters on both Arrow and The Flash (2014) before starring in this series.
    • Wally and Constantine joining marks the first time former main cast members of another show (or in Constantine's case the main character of his show) joined the Legends.
  • Trapped in the Past: Due to their constant Time Travel adventures, it happens from time to time. But the most notable instance is Rip's time scattering of the team during the Season Two premiere.
  • True Companions: Ultimately the Legends come to see themselves as one big (dysfunctional) family.
  • Two First Names: Rip Hunter, Sara Lance, Jefferson Jackson, and Mick Rory.

Gideon II

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gideon_waverider.png
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lot_new_30.jpg

Species: Artificial intelligence program

Played By: Amy Louise Pembertonnote 

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow | Invasion!note  | Crisis on Earth-X note 

An artificially intelligent construct from the future that was created by Barry Allen and is now seemingly commonplace.


  • Artificial Intelligence: She was/will be created by Barry Allen at some point in the future.
  • Bald Woman: She has this appearance as a hologram, but has full locks of brown hair in her human form in Rip's mind and in the dating avatar image she later concocts.
  • Benevolent A.I.: The Waverider's helpful AI assistant.
  • The Big Damn Kiss: Her human avatar shares one with Rip in "Land of the Lost".
  • Covert Pervert: She's kept track of Nate and Amaya's sexual exploits, and can completely recreate Mick's smutty romance novel. Zari calls her out on it.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Gideon makes comments implying a snarky sense of humor. One suspects she's picking it up given the crew she's carrying around on the Waverider.
    Sara: I'm beginning to think our super computer is not so super.
    Gideon: I heard that. You try processing 1.2 zettabytes of data.
  • Foreign Remake: She's not so subtly implied to be a British version of Gideon, with the "original American version" being voiced by Morena Baccarin.
  • Funny Foreigner: She speaks with a British accent and has a snarky sense of humor compared to Eobard Thawne's Gideon.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Though she technically has no gender since she's an AI, she has a traditionally male name but a female voice. In "Land of the Lost", she appears in human form and is very feminine, to the point that both Jax and Sara find her attractive and reveals that she apparently has feelings for Rip.
  • I Am Very British: This version of Gideon speaks with a RP accent.
  • Inexplicably Identical Individuals: It is likely that this is just a different version of Gideon, rather than the original.
  • Job-Stealing Robot: Played with. Hank asks why, if there's a fully autonomous AI who can do anything on the ship, she needs a crew at all. He doesn't get an answer, but it's been demonstrated several times that she needs people for repairs and maintenance, not to mention any excursions off the ship.
  • Last-Name Basis: Always addresses others by a formal title filtered by their surname such as "Captain Hunter" or "Dr. Palmer".
  • Nice Girl: She's unflappably polite, even when she's being snarky, and is fiercely loyal to her Captain and, eventually, the rest of the team in their mission to protect the timeline.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: For Rip Hunter, and eventually the entire Legends.
  • Not So Above It All: She at times demonstrates amusement at the Legends antics, while throwing in the occasional snark herself. She can even use slang if promoted.
  • Raven Hair, Ivory Skin: Her physical avatar in Rip's mind depicts her as a hot chick with really dark hair. It's likely intentional, given that Rip's late wife also had these features.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Her physical avatar in Rip's mind has her overall appearance being similar to his late wife, Miranda.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: This Gideon acts a lot more human than Eobard's Gideon, who was more mechanical and robotic. She's benevolent and doesn't show much sign of autonomy, but she demonstrates a lot of loyalty to Rip and the Legends, and during Rip's attempted Heroic Sacrifice, she admits that she doesn't want to die. By Season Two, it's clear she's developed genuine feelings for Rip.
  • Robot Girl: The possibility of her obtaining a robotic body has been hinted at repeatedly. In addition to having a human avatar in Rip's dreamscape, she manifests a holographic face in season 4, a full-body holographic avatar in one timeline of "Legends of To-Meow-Meow," and gains a full robot body in another timeline in the same episode.
  • Shipper on Deck: For Sara and Ava. She picks up a habit of teasing Sara whenever they call each other, and she even intentionally frames Zari's simulation dream in a way that will ensure she finds out about their attraction to each other, too.
  • Sir Not-Appearing-in-This-Trailer: She was absent in the teaser trailer, while only her voice was heard on the main ones.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has shades of this dynamic with Zari unsurprisingly, given that one is computer hacker and the other is a sentient computer. Later evolves into Vitriolic Best Buds after Gideon subjects Zari to a "Groundhog Day" Loop simulation to show her the importance of staying with the Legends.
  • The Smart Gal: Being an Artificial Intelligence, she's the group's main encyclopedia.
  • Theme Naming: For Time Master AIs. Gideon and Gilbert. Even their voice actors have the same initials (Amy Pemberton and Andrew Pifko).
  • Token Non-Human: For the Legends.
  • True Companions: With Rip to the point that she comforts him when he pulls his Heroic Sacrifice in the Season Two premiere and later becomes his only reliable/non-corrupted companion in his virtual reality prison.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Rip and only Rip, which is helpful as, apart from him and her, nobody else can run the ship, which helps keeps the team in line. Unfortunately, she's loyal to Rip even when he's turned Brainwashed and Crazy by the Legion of Doom, but only because he invokes her override protocol. However in Season 3, Sara is able to subvert this via Loophole Abuse since Rip is no longer Captain she is, so Gideon is no longer honor bound to follow any of Rip's overrides. But "No Country for Old Dad", still proves that Gideon will do whatever Rip asks, as she deletes a secret file about Ava he doesn't want Sara to see without question.
  • You Are Not Alone: While he's brainwashed by the Legion and trapped within his own subconscious, Rip has only one trustworthy companion with him — Gideon. The only thing holding him back from returning to the real world after Sara and Jax enter his mind to get him back is her, as he doesn't want to leave her human avatar behind. She pushes him to go, since it isn't the real her, and even then, he can't leave her anyway — she will always be with him regardless. Back in the real world, Gideon reveals that not only does she remember kissing Rip in his subconscious, she enjoyed it.
  • You Called Me "X"; It Must Be Serious: When Rip is about to perform a Heroic Sacrifice and tells Gideon he would miss her, Gideon says she would miss him too, before she calls him "Rip" for the first time.

"Who needs an army when you've got Legends?"

Species: Enhanced human

Known Aliases: Steel, "Colonel Sanders", "Eliot Ness"

Played By: Nick Zano

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow | Invasion!note  | Crisis on Earth-X note 

Dr. Nate Heywood is a historian, specializing in deductive historical reconstruction. Due to his skills, he was able to deduce that an aberration-created reality, one in which the Nazis bombed New York City in 1942, due to the machinations of Damien Darhk and Eobard Thawne, was starting to cement in timeline, supplanting the previous reality. With the help of Oliver Queen, he was able to locate the submerged Waverider in 2016, Dr. Heywood traveled through time, using his skills as a historian to find the locations and time periods in which different members of the Legends team were stranded. For his support and later being given the ability to transform into steel, Nate was made a new member of the team. After two years on the team, Nate eventually left to join the Time Bureau as wanted to mature and move away from his old memories of Amaya.


  • Abusive Parents: He and his father do not have the best relationship. According to Nate, it stems from his old man's Freudian Excuse for growing up with a Disappeared Dad.
  • Adaptation Name Change: From Nathan to Nathaniel. Also "Citizen Steel" to "Steel". However, see Composite Character below.
  • Adorkable: A geeky historian who gets to travel through time and become a superhero. Ending up in the Old West really brings out this side of Nate's personality. "Raiders of the Lost Art" reveals that Raiders of the Lost Ark is the main reason he became a historian.
  • Adventurer Archaeologist: Well he's actually a historian, but he gets a lot more involved in on the action than anyone else in his career field.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Nate is definitely attracted to Amaya and Zari, but he frequently makes comments about the attractiveness of other men, especially Ray. At Hank's funeral, they even give each other a kiss on the cheek without thinking.
  • And Starring: In the series OBB starting Season Two of Legends of Tomorrow.
  • Ascended Fanboy: A historian getting to travel through time.
  • Badass Bookworm: For a hemophiliac historian who claims that he couldn't do athletic activities when he was young, he is quite buff.
  • Birds of a Feather: Becomes best friends with Ray, the other nerdy Genius Bruiser on the team.
  • Brainy Brunette: He's a brilliant historian.
  • Bromance: With Ray. The two are often seen hanging out, broing it up, and generally getting along like good mates.
    • Also has one with Wally, having apparently formed a friendship offscreen during the six months the Legends were forcibly retired by the Time Bureau.
  • Bullet Catch: Accomplished this using his teeth, while steeled on of course.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the first episode alone he is tackled by Oliver's security and and knocked out by Sara.
  • Calling Parents by Their Name: He calls his father "Hank" because of their strained relationship.
  • Chrome Champion: After being injected with a Super Serum, Nate gains the ability to turn his skin into steel, which also grants him Super Strength and cures his hemophilia. He starts calling himself "Steel", since his grandfather's hero name was "Commander Steel".
  • Commuting on a Bus: In Season 4, he leaves the Legends for good as one of the reasons he joined was because he was running away from his problems at home - but now that he and his dad have buried the hatchet he doesn't feel the need to stay anymore. However he still shows up quite often as a Time Bureau agent, just not with the Legends.
  • Composite Character: His backstory as the grandson of the first (Commander) Steel and him using the Steel superhero identity belongs to Hank Heywood III, but his civilian first name and powers belong to Citizen Steel.
  • Cunning Linguist: When Sara offers Nate one of the translating pills, Nate explains that he's fluent in English, German, French, Japanese, Italian, and Latin. He demonstrates this in the next episode by speaking Edo-period Japanese without a translator.
  • Daddy Issues: Nate and his father, Hank, never got along, although they make a lot of progress towards repairing their relationship in Season 4.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: His romance with Amaya ends on a bittersweet note. She leaves the team to go back to her village and marries somebody else, but chooses to preserve the memories of their relationship.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Becomes the wielder of the Earth Totem in the Legends' final plan to stop Mallus.
  • Ditzy Genius: Almost as bad as Ray in this regard though in Nate's case, it's less of naivete and more of chronic Did Not Think This Through.
  • Emergency Transformation: After receiving a fatal injury, Ray has to inject him with a Super Serum with hopes that it will turn him into a metahuman with a Healing Factor. It worked, even gaining a bonus power.
  • Genius Bruiser: He's a skilled historian, often recognizing important historical events just as fast or before GIDEON, and thanks to the powers he gains after joining the Legends he's also able to throw down just as well as everyone else.
  • Healing Factor: Any injury he suffers before he "metalize" will automatically heal once he "powers down".
  • Heartbroken Badass: Suffers this in the beginning of Season Three after Amaya left him to return to her time period to preserve her family's timeline. Even after she rejoins the team, he's clearly still bitter about she dumped him.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: He barely wears his helmet when he's fighting crime while wearing his costume. Then again, he doesn't really need one with his powerset.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He has John put a Glamour spell on him, making him look like the man, and tricks Neron into killing him, which causes the demon to lose control of Ray's body. However, he is quickly brought back to life by The Power of Love.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners:
    • With Ray, who has been stated to be his best friend.
    • Also with Wally, with the two becoming bros after Nate's stay in Central City.
  • Hot Librarian: A Tall, Dark, and Handsome historian who is always seen with books.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: It takes a while for him to be able to metalize at will. This bites him when he picks a fight with the Shogun's mooks and his powers don't activate.
  • Hyper-Awareness: Nate figures out that history is being changed just from small differences in artifacts, and without knowing about time travel ahead of time.
  • I Choose to Stay: Joins the Time Bureau in Season 4, first to deal with getting over Amaya and then he chooses to stay for good since he no longer feels a need to hide from his problems by living on the Waverider.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Does not join the Legends until Season 2.
  • Ill Boy: Nate suffers from hemophilia, which is why he could not be a soldier like his grandfather.
  • Immune to Bullets: When steeled on, bullets just ricochet off him. Unless the bullets are made from dwarf star alloy.
  • Informed Ability: Nate states he is fluent in English, German, French, Japanese, Italian, and Latin. Except unlike Oliver Queen, we never actually see Nate speak the foreign languages, since all the natives speak in "translated" English for the benefit of the viewers.
  • Informed Flaw: He mentions that his hemophilia prevented him from doing athletic activities. Yet for some reason, he is quite buff and even managed to repeatedly dodge Oliver Queen's security team during his introduction.
  • In Harm's Way:
    • He objects to accompanying Mick on a time-traveling rescue mission for the other Legends, but Oliver sees right through him.
    • In a more literal version of this trope, he itches to be on the front-lines with the rest of the team despite the risks his hemophilia brings. He later reveals that it comes from the cloistered upbringing forced on him by his condition, spending half his childhood in hospitals and forbidden by his parents to even go outside.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: He mentions that the Heywood men are known for their jawlines. That and the fact that he and his grandfather are superheroes.
  • Legacy Character: His codename Steel is derived from his grandfather's codename, Commander Steel.
  • Logical Weakness: Since metals are good heat conductors, steeling up won't protect him from hypothermia, as he learned the hard way when he fell into a cold river.
  • Made of Iron: Very literally. Bullets and blades barely tickle him when he's steeled on.
  • Military Brat: His father is a colonel (later posthumously promoted to brigadier general) in the U.S. Army working in the Pentagon and serves as a military liaison for the Tim Bureau. His grandfather was a legendary soldier during World War II.
  • Mythology Gag: While thinking up a codename for himself, "Citizen Steel" is one of the names Nate contemplates, but ends up settling on "Steel".
  • Nerds Are Sexy: A Tall, Dark, and Handsome historian.
  • Nice Guy: The nicest member of the team next to Ray and likely why they get along so well.
  • Noodle Incident: Apparently became good friends with Wally West between the events of ''Aruba" and "Aruba-Con," the development of which happened entirely offscreen.
  • Odd Name Out: He is notably the only Heywood male who doesn't have an Alliterative Name.
  • Opposites Attract: He and Amaya develop feelings for each other, despite being polar opposites in personality. Amaya is an expert wilderness survivor who loves the outdoors and is strict on being professional in her hero duty. Nate is by his own admission, an indoors guy, has no formal training, and is more in it for the adventure of a lifetime.
  • Pop-Cultured Badass: Nate is the most versed in pop-culture out of all of the Legends, constantly referencing movies and TV shows.
  • Primary-Color Champion: His Steel costume adorned with the colors of the American Flag predominantly features red and blue.
  • Second Hour Superpower: Nate gains his steel powers after being injected with Ray's serum at the end of Episode 2x02, first displaying them in 2x03.
  • Second Love: For Amaya, with Rex being her first.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His superhero costume is sleeveless. Justified in that, with his powers, he doesn't need to worry about his arms getting hurt.
  • The Smart Guy: Nate is a genius historian.
  • Stone Wall: Being Immune to Bullets, Nate often stays on the front lines to shield his team.
  • Tall, Dark, and Handsome: He stands 6 feet tall.
  • Time Travel Romance: In his first season alone, he fell in love with women outside of his time, twice. First with Masako Yamashiro who is from the 17th Century, then with Amaya who is a contemporary of his grandfather during World War II. In Season 4 this becomes inverted, with Nate becoming romantically involved with Zari, who is from 2042 and still a child in his time. There was also a gag for an episode of Nate being attracted to Ray's mom when he meets her in a time period where she's around his age.
  • Token Super: As of Season 4, he is the only known metahuman working as an agent in the Time Bureau.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Season 3, he's very bitter about Amaya breaking up with him as in — she left without saying goodbye. Even after they reconcile and she explains she only left to ensure Mari's existence, he's noticeably terse and goes out of his to flirt with women while Amaya's present just to make her jealous.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Unlike the majority of the team, he has no combat training or prior vigilante experience, but the Super Strength and durability from his steel powers more than makes up for it.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Mick makes fun of his costume, calling him "the Star-Spangled Idiot".
  • Wound That Will Not Heal: Truth in Television for a hemophiliac.

Species: Shapeshifter

Affiliations: The Legends

Played By: Anjli Mohindra, Maisie Richardson-Sellers

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

Ray: She definitely isn't Amaya.
Mick: No, but I do like her!

A punk-rock shapeshifter recently freed from the mystical prison who finds herself joining the Legends.


  • Bi the Way: Charlie's primary interest seems to be in women (she describes Gideon's human avatar as "smokin'", is very pleased to hear Zari describe her as "very hot"), but she also expresses an attraction to the false Kamadeva and admits to sexual fantasies about David Bowie.
  • Birds of a Feather: With Mick, naturally as they both bond over their love of booze and their time in the lockup.
  • Boxed Crook: Her arrangement with the Legends; she gives them intel about the magic creatures who were freed as long as they don't keep her locked up in a cell on the ship.
  • Brought Down to Normal: In a particularly cruel move even for him, Constantine stripped her of her powers permanently — basically the mystical equivalent of a lobotomy simply, because he hates her kind that much. The spell seems to be wearing off as the season goes on, as Charlie's shapeshifting powers seem to be slowly returning, although they're less than reliable at times.
  • Canon Foreigner: She has no comic counterpart.
  • Damsel in Distress: Very briefly during the Season 4 finale, being forced by Neron and Tabitha to transform into Tagumo to strike fear into peoples hearts.
  • Freaky Fashion, Mild Mind: The "mild" part is buried beneath her punk attitude, but deep down, the oddly dressed Charlie proves to be a good person who only seeks to improve society, albeit in her own unique way.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal: She can use her shapeshifting to remove any damage, allowing her to extend her life indefinitely.
  • Humans Are Bastards: Has a low opinion of humans due to some of them locking her up because they were scared of her abilities and often chastises the Legends for always assuming that magical fugitive is evil and locking them up.
  • Hypocrite: Charlie's Humans Are Bastards attitude makes her prone to assuming the worst of any humans involved in the Legends' latest misadventure while chastising her crewmates for making similar assumptions about magical creatures. Thankfully, Character Development on all sides is helping to moderate the views of everyone involved.
  • Irony: Despite being a shapeshifter, Charlie's a rather poor actor.
  • It's All About Me: Charlie helps Constantine shatter the timestream to get her powers back, and is willing to stop Constantine and Zari from returning the resulting cuckoo stew back to normal to keep them. After realizing she can't have her powers and her friendship with the legends at the same time, she gives up the former.
  • Not Evil, Just Misunderstood: She's not actually malicious, she was just locked up by fearful humans who didn't quite understand her. When she's freed she uses her powers to engage in a little punk anarchy in the UK, not realizing the exact consequences when she goes too far by impersonating the bloody Queen (luckily the Legends stopped this).
  • Odd Friendship: Despite being an anarchist punk rocker, she hits off pretty well with the rule-abiding "Boy Scout" Ray.
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: The real life reason she was permanently given the form of Amaya is because the crew loved working with Maisie so much they wanted her to stay on the show, even though Amaya had to be Put on a Bus so that Mari McCabe's existence wasn't threatened.
  • Shapeshifter: Her powers. Until Constantine got his hands on her and had her Brought Down to Normal.
  • Shapeshifter Identity Crisis: She's changed forms so many times she's forgotten her true form — she picked her current one based on a toothpaste ad.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: She's stuck looking as Amaya because she took that form to guilt the Legends into not banishing her to Hell, but a pissed off Constantine took the moment to strip her of her powers permanently, out of sheer spite anyway.
    Charlie: What did you do to me, you arse!?
    Constantine: It's a lobotomy of sorts. Your shapeshifting days are over, sweetheart.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Her relationship with the Legends is extremely turbulent to say the least and completely justified. They wanted to banish her to Hell, but when they came to their senses, Constantine stripped go her powers out of sheer spite, and then they kept her locked in a cell for days until they realized she had valuable intel and gave her some freedom in exchange for that intel. Needless to say she's very unhappy with her current situation and is very vocal about it.
  • Token Good Teammate: To the other magical beings who are either dangerous monsters like the Unicorn or sadistic beings like the Fairy Godmother. Charlie is just somebody who is rebellious and free-spirited. This is ultimately subverted over time though as the rest of the magical creatures introduced are revealed to be Not Evil, Just Misunderstood like her and the Unicorn and Fairy Godmother are outliers.
  • Token Non-Human: The first Waverider crew member who isn't human or metahuman. She's a supernatural creature known as a Shapeshifter.
    • The second if you count Gideon.

Click here to see her transformed 

Species: Enhanced human

Played by: Ramona Young

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

A former food delivery girl who got promoted to being the Bureau's offical creature handler. Through a number of tragic events, she later finds herself joining the Legends.


  • Adorkable: Mona is gleeful nerd who Thinks Like a Romance Novel, and she's all the more adorable for it.
  • Berserk Button: Anything that tarnishes her perception of her favorite authors. When she met Jane Austen she was depressed that her romantic optimism was dismissed by her as unrealistic foolishness and outraged when the notion was agreed with by Zari. Mona wolfed out and almost mauled Jane until she talked her down with an optimistic but still realistic compromise. When she felt that Charlie was impersonating her other favorite author Rebecca Silver (and possibly doing it for the money) she was on the verge of wolfing out again as she demanded to know where the real Rebecca was.
  • Break the Cutie: Poor Mona suffers a horrible ordeal when Konane gets murdered and she in turn transforms and kills the agent responsible for it.
  • Genki Girl: She is quite lively and very easily excited, even in the face of potential dangerous creatures.
  • Hidden Depths:
    • She doesn't have the best relationship with her parents, who disapproved of her career choice. Her mother, in particular, seems to have a tendency of talking about Mona as if she's not even in the room.
    • If Wolfie's aggression is anything to go by, Mona has some deep-seated anger issues that she normally keeps very well hidden.
  • Hulking Out: After getting scratched by Konane, she is shown transforming into a very Kaupe-like creature in a fit of rage, after Konane is murdered. She ends up dubbing her Kaupe self "Wolfie", and the two eventually start to develop distinct personalities.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Konane, though they sadly end up as Starcrossed Lovers and then Konane gets murdered.
  • Nice Girl: Mona may as well be an angel with how openhearted, gentle, and upbeat she is. The only time she isn't sugary sweet is when she's standing up against the mistreatment of someone.
  • Shipper on Deck: Is very giddy on trying to get Ray and Nora together.
  • Ship Tease: With Gary, but more prominently with Konane the Kaupe.
  • Thinks Like a Romance Novel: Mona is a firm believer in The Power of Love as spelled out by the works of Jane Austen, often to the point of unrealistic expectations or naivety.
  • You Are Better Than You Think You Are: Encourages both Nora and Ava, telling them what great women they are and that they shouldn't be so hard on themselves.

Captain / Director Rip Hunter, Michael, Time Master

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/18_0.jpg
"There is a war coming, and history needs you [Sara] to be ready. You and the rest of the Legends."

Species: Human

Known Aliases: Rip Hunter, "The Garib", Phillip "Phil" Gasmer

Affiliations: The Time Masters, The Legends, The Time Bureau

Played By: Arthur Darvill, Aiden Longworth (young)

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow

A time traveling member of the Time Masters, who comes to the present to assemble a group of heroes and villains to fight against Vandal Savage, the man who murdered his wife and child and took over the future.

6 months after finishing this quest, Rip got lost in a time aberration caused by Eobard Thawne, which led to Rip losing his memories and later being captured and brainwashed by Thawne and his new-found Legion of Doom.

After his original self was finally restored and with the Legion defeated, Rip decided to leave the Captain's duties to Sara Lance and started the Time Bureau, in an effort to fix the broken timeline in a better way than his former Time Master compatriots.

Sadly, it all ended with Rip losing control of the Bureau and him finally sacrificing himself against the demon Mallus.


  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: This version gave him a dead family that he's trying to avenge, and the guilt of bringing along people for him to do it.
  • Adaptational Curves: Inverted. In the comics, Rip is more muscular, while in the show he's more lean.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's strawberry or sandy blonde in the comics. Here, he's dirty blonde.
  • Adult Fear: Having your family killed by a powerful madman.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: It's very difficult for him to not be compared with The Doctor, even though his comic counterpart actually predates said character. This Rip Hunter incorporates a lot more elements from the Doctor than his namesake, such as a fondness for trenchcoats, being part of a "Time-" organization before he went rogue, and stealing a time traveling Cool Ship. It certainly helps the comparison that his actor is fairly well known for playing one of the Doctor's companions.
  • The Antichrist: Feared as "the Garib" by Vandal Savage's cult for his (unsuccessful) attempt to assassinate Savage shortly before his ascension to immortality. This is another similarity to the Doctor, actually, who is known by various epithets such as "the Oncoming Storm" to his enemies.
    Every myth has its monster, and for those of our order, it's him. The Garib.
  • Arch-Enemy:
    • Rip has a deeply personal grudge against Vandal Savage, who murdered his wife and child. His attempts to stop Savage's rise to power end up making the feeling quite mutual (it even convinces Savage to kill Rip's family in the first place).
    • To Mallus. Rip has dedicated a large portion of his life to uncovering the truth about Mallus and stopping him from returning.
  • The Atoner: After burning his bridges with the Legends and Ava, he wants to make things up to them.
  • Authority in Name Only:
    • Has some shades of this. He frequently tells members of his team not to mess with the timeline, but they tend to ignore him if they feel it's justified and he has no real way to make them stop. He's quite well aware that they tend not to listen to him and complains about it frequently. Even after his return in late Season Two, Sara, who's been acting captain of the Waverider in his absence, still gives orders to the team, which gives the two of them moments of butting heads about who should command what.
    • Averted with the Time Bureau, where he is very much in charge, until "Return of Mack" where they turn against him for going on a mission to stop Mallus behind their back that ended with several agents dead.
  • "Awesome McCool" Name: What isn't badass about the name 'Rip Hunter'?
  • Badass Beard: Had some pretty nice facial hair to go with his trenchcoat in Season One. Come Season Two, it has become Perma-Stubble at best; come Season Three, he's shaved it almost completely off.
  • Badass Family: His wife and son were both Defiant to the End when Savage came to kill them.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He has a few moments of dressing formally, but really hits this trope in Season Three, where he starts dressing in a sharp blue suit as leader of the Time Bureau.
  • Badass Longcoat: He sports a brown trenchcoat, eventually revealed to be a gift from Jonah Hex. He goes without it for a time after forming the Time Bureau, but he retrieves it with Wally's help in "The Curse of the Earth Totem".
  • Badass Normal: He has no powers, only equipped with a high tech, futuristic revolver. Also, while not quite to the level of Sara, he is still quite an exceptional fighter and is able to beat Vandal in a straight up fight. He was also able to escape from a Time Bureau prison.
  • Battle Couple: It is revealed that his wife Miranda was a member of the Time Masters.
  • Beleaguered Boss: The Legends are initially led by the long suffering Rip, who is Authority in Name Only, as no one listens to his orders. Many instances suggest he regrets assembling them as they do more damage to the timeline than the repairs they make.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: It is revealed that he and Miranda were prone to squabbling before their marriage.
  • Blatant Lies: Rip manages to recruit the team by telling them how they all are regarded as a Legendary Team in the future. He later reveals that it was a lie all along and he only recruited them because of their relative lack of impact on the future.
  • Big Good:
    • One of the core forces of good in the Arrowverse, assembling a team of heroes and leading them into battle to stop a threat to the future.
    • Becomes even more apparent in Season 3 where he leads the Time Bureau, the true Time Police that safeguards all of history. Until he's thrown out for doing a mission behind their back.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: The Legion brainwashed him during the middle of Season Two, and tasked him to kill George Washington among other evil deeds.
  • But Now I Must Go: After he realizes that he's taught the Legends all he can about time and that they function better under Sara's leadership than his own, he decides to leave the team at the end of Season Two.
  • The Captain: Gideon addresses him with this rank. Of course, Captain Cold has issues with it, and in Season Two, it leads to some confusion when he returns to the ship during Sara's time as captain, he eventually secedes the title over to Sara and it's made very clear that in Season 3 the Legends consider Sara their captain. Just before he dies, Sara addresses him as Captain, one final time.
  • Cassandra Truth: Nobody believes his fears about Mallus and his attempts to prove them end up blowing up in his face. But Agent Sharpe is forced to admit he was right, as without him leading the Bureau Damien Darhk is running rings about the Time Bureau.
  • Career Versus Family: It is not so subtly implied that the reason he fell out of favor with the Time Masters is because he started a family despite them discouraging the idea, and him clearly prioritizing them over the organization doesn't help.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Ray is a fan of Doctor Who and the show itself was referenced a couple of times in the shows. Rip's actor played Rory Williams, a companion of the Eleventh Doctor.
  • Character Tics: Has a habit of, when talking to someone, leaning and looking down, while still conversing with them.
  • Chekhov M.I.A.: After protecting 1942 New York, scattering the team and putting Mick in stasis to protect them, he stays on the Waverider while it takes the nuke to where it can harm nobody else. After this he goes missing, with the team having no indication of whether he is dead or alive. It's later revealed he's in 1967 Los Angeles, severely suffering from Loss of Identity.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: His name is mentioned in passing in The Flash Season One finale regarding a Time Sphere that would apparently impress him.
  • Composite Character: His animosity with Vandal Savage, and him summoning a team to fight him, is incorporated from the character called The Immortal Man.
  • Crazy-Prepared: He took DNA samples from each of the team just in case one of them lost a limb during the mission.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Thanks to a Stable Time Loop, him travelling back in time to try and kill Savage becomes the main reason why Savage targeted his family in the first place.
  • Crusading Widower: Savage killed his wife along with their son. This is what pushes him to relentlessly stop Savage.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was a street urchin and thief until the Time Masters picked him up for training.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Big time. To wit, his first words to the Legends when they're gathered on a rooftop: "I'm from East London. Oh, and the future."
  • Death Equals Redemption: For all his immoral actions in Season Three, Rip firmly proves he's one of the good guys by performing a Heroic Sacrifice to delay Mallus.
  • Defector from Decadence: He leaves the Time Masters since they're content to let Savage conquer the world and do nothing.
  • Demoted to Extra: He was a main member of the cast in Season One, but becomes a recurring character in Seasons Two and Three.
  • The Determinator: Once Rip has a goal in mind, nothing will stop him from achieving it. In Season Three, the Time Bureau arrests him, impeding his crusade against Mallus. His response? Break out of prison and track down Wally West to help him in his fight.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": As Phil Gasmer, he keeps insisting others call him Phil instead of Rip.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: After Barry and Oliver, he's probably done more to protect the world from evil than anyone else, and gets zero respect for it. He was nothing but a pawn to the Time Masters, the Legends never listened to him, and even the Time Bureau showed little interest in his fears about Mallus and promptly remove him from command once he's proven right]
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Eobard Thawne gives a passing mention of him in The Flash (2014) Season One finale.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his willingness to travel to multiple different time eras, he's absolutely unwilling to return to the time of Jesus Christ's Crucifixion out of fear of the potential consequences for meddling in such a crucial event in history.
  • Evil Brit: After he was brainwashed by the Legion. Things he did under that time were kill George Washington (he gets better) and nearly killing Sara.
  • Evil Costume Switch: While brainwashed, Rip wears black versions of his old outfits.
  • Expecting Someone Taller: The Time Pirate Jon Valor was expecting Rip Hunter to be taller.
  • Expy: Although Rip resembles The Doctor from Doctor Who (being played by a former actor from that series doesn't help), and the Time Masters appear to be expys of Doctor Who's Time Lords, in fact both Rip and the Time Masters originated in the DC Comics years before Doctor Who debuted on TV and more than a decade before the British series introduced the Time Lords to its narrative. However, the version of Rip Hunter to appear in the Arrowverse does borrow heavily from The Doctor and takes numerous traits from the Time Lord.
  • "Facing the Bullets" One-Liner: Gives one to Mallus in the Season Three finale:
    Rip: Ironic isn't it? A time demon who's run out of time.
  • Fatal Flaw: Rip is used to working on his own initiative and having the final say on what actions needs to be taken. Fitting, as he was trained as a Time Master, usually working solo to resolve situations. Unfortunately this leads to the side-effect of Rip being used to missions and objectives being resolved according to his intent. Not suitable for someone who is leading a team, which is why he left at the end of Season Two as Sara had easily taken over the role. Unfortunately this came back to bite him in the ass hard in Season Three. When Sara refused to risk Damien Dahrk’s resurrection in order to trap Mallus, he betrayed her trust, locking down the Waverider and allowing Darhk to be resurrected to draw Mallus out. End result, multiple Time Bureau Agents are dead, Darhk escapes alongside his daughter, and Mallus gains a valuable asset. Thus, despite Rip being right regarding the threat of Mallus, he's destroyed any trust or goodwill he had from both the Legends and the Time Bureau, causing ''neither'' to act on it.
  • Faux Affably Evil: After being brainwashed by the Legion, he continues to act like his polite, snarky self, but there's a definite air of menace in everything he does, and he doesn't hesitate to attack or even coldly murder his former friends.
  • Forbidden Romance: He fell in love and started a family against Time Master rules. Savage killing them is what drives him to undo their deaths.
  • Going Native: After spending too much time in the Old West, Rip became too attached to the era and had to force himself to leave. As we can see from his modern attire (his Badass Longcoat, a gift from Jonah Hex, and his revolver-styled gun), he hasn't completely shed his fondness for that time. This occurred again due to his extended stay in 1967 Los Angeles, believing himself to be an American film director working on a science fiction film about his own life.
  • The Good Captain: His main Character Development is to show that despite how badly he wants to permanently kill Savage and protect history, he tries to think about the well-being of the people he brought in first.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's dedicated to protecting history and fighting evil, but he will unashamedly lie and manipulate people to achieve whatever goal he has his mind; Sara loses faith in because of it.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: The closest he has ever come to cursing are "bloody hell" and "bullocks."
  • Heartbroken Badass: Savage killed his family and he spends all of Season One in mourning over them.
  • Hero of Another Story: In Season Three as Director of the Time Bureau, especially in his solo quest to take down Mallus. He later escapes prison and recruits Wally West to his cause.
  • Hero Antagonist: In Season Three, he's formed the Time Bureau to be the official successors of the Time Masters due to the Legends' penchant for causing chaos on even the simplest missions. Downplayed, though; unlike the Bureau, he is not antagonistic toward the Legends, treating them civilly and willing to ally with them every now and then.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Sacrifices himself to stall Mallus to give the Legends a fighting chance.
  • Hero Killer: Post-brainwashing, he's killed George Washington, Dr. Mid-Nite, and nearly Sara. Washington's death was averted thanks to time travel and Sara was saved by Gideon, but Mid-Nite wasn't so lucky.
  • Heroic BSoD: When he discovers that the Time Masters have been manipulating the team all along to help Savage conquer Earth.
  • He’s Back: After a lengthy absence in Season Two, Rip returns to the series, having ended up in 1967 Los Angeles where he has forgotten his true self and believes himself to be an American director. Not long after, he gets captured and brainwashed by the Legion of Doom and becomes their killing machine. The Legends finally manage to restore him to his true self and the real Rip makes his formal return to the crew proper in "Land of the Lost", Badass Longcoat and all.
  • Hypocrite:
    • He keeps warning his team about the dangers of changing the timeline despite the whole mission being to do just that. This is something the team calls him out on numerous times.
    • In Season Three, he fires the Legends for causing a paradox, accusing them of causing too much damage to the time stream as rank amateurs. However, they caused the paradox to save reality due to Rip not destroying the Spear of Destiny when he had the chance. Basically, he used their actions against them when they were just cleaning up a mess he helped make.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: While he's the first main protagonist of Legends of Tomorrow introduced within that show, he does not appear in the Arrowverse until its fourth year.
  • Informed Ability: Eobard mentioned in the Season One finale of The Flash that Rip can create time machines. He never displayed any signs of that skill throughout Legends's run.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Technically, as he is centuries younger than the other Legends and Jonah Hex. Or so it seems. When the team first visit the Refuge he was raised in, he tells them that the Time Masters fill their ranks with "orphans pulled from throughout the course of history" and later in the episode he describes his younger self as "a cut-purse since the age of five". "Cut-purse" seems quite an anachronistic term for a native of the 22nd Century to use, and it's used in Shakespeare. So it's more than possible that Rip (or rather Michael) was born centuries before the other legends or even Jonah Hex.
  • Interspecies Romance: Shares a kiss with Gideon in "Land of the Lost".
  • It's Personal: Again, he's understandably got issues with someone who personally murders his family.
  • Kid from the Future: He's from the future. If the show follows the comics' canon, then he's the son of Booster Gold.
  • Knife Nut: His younger self is good in handling knives.
  • Knight of Cerebus: After being brainwashed into joining the Legion, Rip is one of the darkest villains seen on Legends. His personal connection to the team coupled with a newfound sadism and Lack of Empathy makes every scene he's in very threatening, which is driven home when he snaps Sara's neck in "Turncoat" (she gets better).
  • The Leader: He is the one who formed the team.
  • Loss of Identity: Being stuck in 1967 Los Angeles has turned Rip into an American-sounding film director.
  • Magnetic Hero: Averted; unlike Barry or Oliver he really can't inspire loyalty in his team, nor get them to respect his authority as leader. It's why Sara eventually ends up as Captain.
  • Meaningful Name: Time Travel in the show can be fairly described as going through "rips" in the fabric of time. He's also on a personal "hunt" for Savage.
  • My Greatest Failure:
    • He traveled back to before Savage became immortal and had a chance to kill him, but he failed.
    • The events of "Return of the Mack, since his botched attempt to use Darhk as bait to catch Mallus results with good Time Agents dead and both the Bureau and the Legends no longer trusting him. He acknowledges as much to Wally.
  • Named by the Adaptation: His real name is never revealed in the comics. Here, it's Michael.
  • Never Got to Say Goodbye: Miranda and Jonas are already corpses when he finds them.
  • Never Trust a Trailer: The teaser trailer suggests that Barry and Oliver helped him in forming the Legends. He did all the work.
  • Nice Guy: For all of his frustration with the team when they don't listen to him, Rip is very well-mannered and well-meaning and comes to care deeply about them, though events in Seasons Two and Three throw a big wrench into their bonding.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: An ill-timed "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Mick drives him to betray the team.
    • He decides to go over Sara's head in "Return of the Mack", and tries to use Damien Darhk's resurrection as bait instead of taking him out once and for all. Not only does Damien come back fully powered, he massacres a sizable group of time agents, weakening the Bureau. His arrogance and obsession leads to one of history’s most dangerous mass murderers back into play. His betraying of the Legends leads to not only them severing ties with him, but also adds a valuable pawn to Mallus's cult.
  • Never Found the Body: Just like Cold before him, is body isn't recovered after his sacrifice.
  • Noodle Incident:
    • According to the Season One finale of The Flash, at some point, Rip had an encounter with (or at least was known by) Eobard Thawne. In Season Two of Legends, Thawne greets him in a familiar manner, but there are still no clues as to how they know one another (at the time, Rip was in no condition to give any answers and Thawne didn't seem interested in elaborating).
    • Future!Barry is quite acquainted with him, even leaving a message for Rip on the Waverider; yet so far Barry and Rip have never met on screen.
  • No Respect Guy: After the team's initial lost of trust in him, they will often ignore any of his warnings not to interfere with the time stream.
  • The Oath-Breaker: Time Masters are not supposed to have families, but he fell in love and started one. Later, he reveals that he's a Rogue Agent out on a personal mission against Savage.
  • Outliving One's Offspring: Savage killed his son along with his wife. This is what pushes him to relentlessly hunt Savage.
  • Out of Focus: He goes missing in the Season Two premiere. The midseason finale shows he wound up in 1967 Los Angeles.
  • Papa Wolf: Part of the reason why he goes after Savage is to undo his family's deaths at his hands.
  • Prima Donna Director: He becomes a mean and demanding film student in 1967 Los Angeles.
  • Properly Paranoid:
    • He was the one who found the Spear of Destiny and hid it through time. He did this of his own initiative as he believed the Time Masters or anyone else could not be trusted with it.
    • He let the Legends have the Waverider, because he didn't trust the Time Bureau to stop Mallus. Considering they don't believe his fears and mutiny against him for going behind their backs to stop Mallus, he was right. However the reason they don't believe him has nothing to do with his paranoia, but with him screwing up and costing multiple agent's lives. However,once Darhk and his cronies start causing chaos at such a scale that the Bureau are overwhelmed they're forced to admit his point.
  • Pursued Protagonist: The Time Masters are after him.
  • Reformed Criminal: He was a Street Urchin before the Time Masters took him in.
  • Revenge: His main motive in opposing Savage is to avenge his wife and son.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: His weapon of choice is a futuristic gun that resembles a revolver.
  • Rogue Agent: No matter what, he will inevitably turn on whatever team he belongs to when they refuse to address his fears about whatever evil he's discovered. The Time Bureau arrests him for doing so.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!:
    • He disobeys the Time Masters and goes back in time to stop Savage.
    • He also goes behind the back of the Time Bureau to stop Mallus. They remove him from control.
  • Sherlock Scan: He engages in this in "The Return of Mack".
  • The Snark Knight: He's a protector of time. He's also essentially a babysitter for eight incredibly difficult personalities. Dealing with them in addition to constantly being in danger from his former employers doesn't put him in the best of moods.
  • Start My Own: After the team cripples the Time Masters and kills Savage, Rip decides they should take up the duty of protecting the timeline. After he leaves the Waverider, he rebuilds the Time Masters organization in Season Three, though they're now christened the Time Bureau.
  • Tranquil Fury: His attitude towards Savage, considering what Savage did to him.
  • Team Dad: He is a rather begrudging one. He's essentially taking care of group of nine-year-olds who won't listen to him.
  • Temporarily a Villain: While Brainwashed and Crazy courtesy of the Legion, he carried out their dirty work of killing. Fortunately, the Legends manage to save him.
  • Time Master: Puns aside, he has access to a Time Grenade which is able to freeze time temporarily.
  • Time Police: The organization he belongs to, the Time Masters, is tasked with protecting history itself. He later makes another organisation called the Time Bureau that serves this purpose and is loyal to the cause.
  • Time Stands Still: In Season Three, he's shown to have some sort of Time Grenade which can freeze his immediate vicinity. He uses it during "The Return of the Mack" during the fight with Mallus' cult.
  • Together in Death: He's very calm before his sacrifice to stop Mallus, noting how he'll finally be reunited with Miranda and Jonas.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: In Season Three, once he forms the Time Bureau. He doesn't even bother to tell the Legends what he's been doing and sends them out to pasture without so much as asking them to join his new organization. Though unlike the rest of his agents, he still treats them with civility, if not quite respect. He eventually lets them do their thing on the Waverider because he knows he has no way to stop them and they are the best hope of stopping Mallus.
    • Took a Level in Kindness: After his actions cause Sara to turn on him and call Ava Sharpe and the Time Bureau to arrest him, even though he was completely right about the danger Mallus poses, he realizes he went too far and vows during a conversation with Wally (who bluntly notes how much of a douche he was) to make amends.
  • Trapped in the Past: After time-scattering the team in the Season Two premiere, he undergoes a "self-induced amnesia" and sends himself to The '60s.
  • Two First Names: Per the DC Comics norm.
  • Tyke-Bomb: As a young Street Urchin, Rip was placed in a secret children's home whose purpose is to groom children to join the Time Masters' ranks. Unlike most examples of this trope however, he is very well adjusted because it was an Orphanage of Love with a firm but caring matron.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: Nobody surpasses his authority over Gideon. Even while Rip was Brainwashed and Crazy and Gideon was instructed to ignore Rip, he managed to use Override Commands to take control of Gideon and cause havoc on the Waverider while he escaped.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: The man will do anything to protect the world from evil. Unfortunately it means both the Legends and the Time Bureau turn against him because his measures are too extreme.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Every time one of the previous Ava clones died, he got another one from the future. Even compared to some of his morally questionable decisions, that’s blatantly unethical. It's somehow worse that he admits it to the current Ava's face, and doesn't seem sorry about it.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: After some internal strife, Rip finds that he doesn't have it in him to kill the young Per Degaton, even knowing what the boy will grow up to be.

"I've already lost one team. I'll be damned if my decision rips the Legends apart, too."

Species: Empowered Human

Known Aliases: Vixen I

Affiliations: The Justice Society of America, The Legends

Played By: Maisie Richardson-Sellers

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow | Invasion!note  | Crisis on Earth-X note 

A woman from the African village of Zambesi who inherited a magical amulet, and became the guardian of the village. She was eventually recruited into the Justice Society of America, and from there joined the Legends.


  • Action Girl: She's much more polished as a hand-to-hand fighter than her eventual successor Mari.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's also a lot more hostile compared to the similarly rigid Mari.
  • 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: A vixen is a female fox, and she has the ability to take on the abilities of any animal she can think of, such as the strength of an elephant or the flight of a bird.
  • 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.
  • Battle Couple: She and Hourman were this, though we never get to see them (let alone him) in action. She later forms one onscreen with Nate.
  • The Beastmaster: Her experience with the Anansi Totem has given Amaya a special empathy with animals, enabling her to understand and communicate with even a T-Rex.
  • Berserk Button: The Totems of Zambesi are meant to be used to protect people, so when she finds Kuasa using the Water Totem for evil, she's furious — to her it's sacrilege. This is also seen briefly when Nora corrupts the Anansi totem.
  • Broken Pedestal: Amaya is one to Kuasa, her granddaughter. As a child, Kuasa idolized Amaya and dreamed of being just like her when she would inherit the Anansi totem. Learning her grandmother's younger self was a time traveler who did nothing to save Zambesi from Eshu the warlord sours Kuasa opinion of her hero. It later becomes a Re Built Pedestal, when Amaya makes Kuasa see that her ruthlessness and selfishness make her unworthy of her birth right.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Even without her totem, she is a very skilled martial artist, as the Nazis quickly discovered.
  • But Now I Must Go: After the Legends defeat Mallus, she leaves the team to go back to her village to have her daughter and ensure Mari and Kuasa's existence.
  • Canon Foreigner: While Vixen exists in the main DCU, Amaya Jiwe is an original character created for the show. See Decomposite Character below.
  • Celebrity Paradox: Star Wars has been mentioned several times in all the Arrowverse shows. Her actress plays a Sacrificial Lamb character in The Force Awakens. Appropriately enough, Amaya is integral during a Season Two Story Arc where the creation of Star Wars must be ensured.
  • Character Death: Amaya is killed by Snart in the altered reality in "Doomworld", where she is frozen by the Cold Gun, then shattered. She gets better thanks to time travel.
  • The Chick: She is the most sensible of the Legends thus far.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: Being a member of the Justice Society of America, she has the tendency to jump into action when she sees wrongdoing despite knowing that she could end up changing the timeline.
  • The Comically Serious: Noticeably loosens up in Season Three after spending so much time with the Legends.
  • Decomposite Character: In the comics, there is only one Vixen, Amaya's granddaughter Mari, who previously appeared in Arrow. Due to scheduling conflicts with Megalyn Echikunwoke, they couldn't use Mari, so Amaya was created as a previous Vixen that joins the Legends.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Initially dismissive of the Legends, she eventually warms up to them — especially Nate and Mick.
  • Doomed by Canon: According to Kuasa, she was killed by Eshu when he raided the village for the Anansi totem. However this is undone when the Legends stop Eshu's raid meaning she survives.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: She's from the year 1942, a time where history hasn't been completely documented as well where technology is still developing. She often has to ask the other Legends about several facts on the time they go to and didn't believe ninjas existed (unless she was just trolling Mick).
  • Friend to All Living Things: Being an Animal-Themed Superbeing, she has a natural way with animals, being able to understand and communicate with them. She's even able to calm down a T-Rex and, briefly, a giant telepathic gorilla.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She has no mercy in the field, or when it comes to protecting her people and her village. Some Belgian Imperialists who tried to loot her village found that out the hard way.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Does not join the Legends until Season 2.
  • It's Personal: Her primary motive for joining the Legends. She wants revenge on Rex's killer, the Reverse-Flash.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Downplayed since her magic is centered on enhancing her physical abilities, but she still fits this trope being the only magic-user on the team. Her familiarity with using mystical artifacts is why the team goes to her first with handling the Spear of Destiny.
  • The Lancer: She is essentially Rex Tyler's second-in-command in the JSA.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: She has her memories wiped when she leaves the Waverider so her feelings for Nate won't stop her from starting her own family. However, this is altered when she goes home in The Good, the Bad and the Cuddly and she stops Nate from erasing her memories.
  • Legacy Character: Mari McCabe is one to her in Vixen.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: In "Doomworld", Snart kills her by freezing her with the Cold Gun, then taps her frozen body and shattering it to pieces. But thanks to time travel, she is saved.
  • Living Legend: In "The Curse of the Earth Totem" she becomes known as "Dread Pirate Jiwe", a great pirate with the same fearsome reputation as Blackbeard.
  • Nerves of Steel: In Land of the Lost, Gertrude, an angry T-Rex, roars in Amaya's face, and she doesn't so much as flinch.
  • Nice Girl: If you can get past her stern professionalism, she's actually quite kind and compassionate, as Mick finds out.
  • Not So Above It All: She initially has a very poor opinion of the Legends given their sometimes dysfunctional team, and especially a low opinion of unapologetic criminal Mick. When she gets to play the bad girl in 1927 Chicago and hijacks a load of booze, she admits that being the bad guy for a change can be fun.
    • She also decides to continue traveling though time rather than remain in the past. This puts her own granddaughter at risk and shows that she isn't that different from the Legends in the long run. However, she eventually realizes the danger to Mari and returns to 1942, only to encounter new problems that drive her to rejoin the team.
  • Not So Stoic: She breaks down crying after Hourman is killed.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: On occasion, Maisie Richardson-Sellers' natural British accent slips out; this is particularly noticeable during the Crisis on Earth-X crossover.
  • Only Sane Woman: In Stein's absence, Amaya is probably the closest thing the Legends has to adult supervision. She's calm, professional, rational, and almost always thinks things through before charging in.
  • Opposites Attract: She and Nate develop feelings for each other, despite being polar opposites in personality. Amaya is an expert wilderness survivor who loves the outdoors and is strict on being professional in her hero duty. Nate is by his own admission, an indoors guy, has no formal training, and is more in it for the adventure of a lifetime.
  • Paradox Person: At the end of Season Two, she opts to stay with the Legends rather than go back to 1942 — even though she knows that, by doing so, she's putting her future granddaughter's existence at risk.
  • Plot Armor: At least where Kuasa is concerned. Justified as she is her grandmother and if Kuasa kills her, she'll end up dying as well.
  • Sassy Black Woman: Of African decent and always finds time to make smartass remarks.
  • Screw Destiny: Late into Season Two, she finds out about the eventual fate of her village and Mari's existence; in the finale, she opts not to go back to 1942, wanting to keep helping the team for as long as she is able.
  • The Stoic: She's generally very serious and straightforward, but she proves capable of loosening up.
  • Time Travel Romance: Pretty much her and Nate's Story Arc. As much as they love each other, they both know they can't be together since they're from different eras. Amaya's younger granddaughter especially is an important hero in The Present Day.
  • Took a Level in Badass: By Season Three, she can uses the totem to summon multiple animal spirits at once, and not even have to fight.
  • Unknown Rival: For her, It's Personal that she finds Hourman's murderer. Said murderer, Eobard Thawne, doesn't give a crap about her or anyone else.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: She mocks Ray for not having any real superpowers and for needing to rely on his ATOM suit. However, she takes it back after he sacrifices his chance to gain said powers in order to save Nate.

"You saved the world? Then why does it still suck?"

Species: Empowered Human

Nicknames: Z, Khaahar

Affiliations: Resistance against A.R.G.U.S., The Legends

Played By: Tala Ashe, Gracelyn Awad Rinke (young)

Appearances: Legends of Tomorrow | Crisis on Earth-X note 

A young woman from 2042, who happens to wield one of the Zambesi totems.


  • A Day in the Limelight: "Here We Go Again" is entirely dedicated to her and bonding with the rest of the Legends.
  • Action Girl: Another female Legend who's more than capable of kicking ass.
  • Adaptation Origin Connection: In the comics, her power-granting amulet is part of the same line as the Captain Marvel family; here, her powers stem from the same source as Vixen's.
  • Adaptational Modesty: The Mythology Gag superhero costume she wears in Legends 3x04 is far more modest than her midriff baring outfit she had in the comics.
  • Adaptation Name Change: The name "Zari" is an invention of the show. Every other incarnation outside of the Andrea Thomas incarnation used Adrianna as her given name.
  • Adorkable: Just look how giddy she is when the Waverider makes its first time jump with her on it. She also bought a copy of Legend of Zelda off the black market and is later seen playing video games in her off-hours.
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: Cynical and used to keeping people at arm's length as a result of growing up in a dystopian future version of America.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Is attracted to Nate and Jonah Hex, but also stated that Amaya was hot. When Charlie asks if she's straight, she doesn't give an answer.
  • Ancient Artifact: Her powers stem from the Wind Totem, bestowing the user with the ability to manipulate air.
  • The Atoner: For not being able to save her brother.
  • Bad Future: She comes from one where A.R.G.U.S. has taken over and turned America into a Police State.
  • Big Eater: Likely due to how she grew up after joining the Legends if it's not a fight. Z is more often than not chowing down on something (usually junk food).
  • Blow You Away: She possesses the Wind Totem, enabling her to manipulate air for flight and blasts of wind for offense.
  • Civvie Spandex: Doesn't wear a costume, opting for a series of simple jackets instead. The first time she does wear an outfit that resembles the original Isis superhero costume from the comics and 1970s TV series is on Halloween in the 80's ... and she finds it both stupid and impractical to wear. In Crisis on Earth-X, however, she gets a gold and black uniform that's similar to Amaya's.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: An Enforced Trope in which Real Life Writes the Plot. In the comics and original Secrets of Isis TV series, her moniker is "Isis" — named after the Egyptian Goddess of Magic. Unfortunately, in 2017 most people associate the name with the terror group ISIS, therefore the producers of the series chose to not give her a superhero name (especially given this version of the character is Muslim-American).
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Has quite the rap sheet, which impresses Mick. However, since she lives in a Police State, we can assume that either most of those crimes are exaggerations or done fighting against ARGUS.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Like Mick, she tends to resort to sarcasm and blunt honesty to communicate feelings.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Coming from a dystopia time period, she's naturally quite frosty, but eventually mellows out revealing an extremely adorkable personality.
  • Driven to Suicide: In "Here I Go Again", she breaks down from watching the Legends die over and over again in a "Groundhog Day" Loop and tries to shoot herself. Fortunately, the gun isn't loaded and even if it was, there was no chance of her dying, since she was just in a simulation.
  • The Engineer: Shares this role on the Waverider with Jax due to her technical expertise and later inherits it entirely after his departure from the team.
  • Elemental Powers: The mystical Totems of Zambezi grants its user control over a different element of nature, with Zari's being the Wind Totem.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: Not to the same degree as Amaya, but a fair amount of 20th century pop culture icons like Billy Joel and Groundhog Day are unfamiliar to her.
  • Gamer Chick: Likes to play video games in her downtime. She also once brought a copy of "Legend of Zelda" off the black market.
  • "Groundhog Day" Loop: Gets put into one in "Here We Go Again" thanks to Gideon as part of a Secret Test of Character to make her bond with the Legends.
  • Head Butting Heroes: Really doesn't get along with Sara at first, due to chafing under her authority and Zari's insistence on changing history to help people instead of preserving the timeline. It becomes bad enough to eventually drive Zari off the team, but luckily, she gets over this after Gideon's endless time loop simulation shows her that she and the Legends need each other.
  • Hollywood Hacking: The resident hacker of the team and previously used it to fight ARGUS.
  • Hidden Depths: Apparently relaxes by listening to heavy metal.
  • Informed Attribute: Is stated to be a hacker and promotional material advertised her as this, but she almost never uses it and is mostly in the field with the rest of the team.
  • In Name Only: Rather than having the powers of an Egyptian goddess as is the case with the original 1970s character and later 2000s reboot, Zari Adrianna Tomaz wields one of the totems common to most Arrowverse magic and doesn't go by Isis. As a result, the character is nearly completely unrecognizable beyond the name.
  • In-Series Nickname: Several of her teammates call her "Z".
  • Knight In Sour Armor: Zari's a legitimately good person, but she's also very cynical and snarky, with little faith in or patience for sentiment.
  • La Résistance: Was a member of a group of rebels fighting the now fascist-minded A.R.G.U.S.; she joins the Legends after she discovers what remained of her family were slaughtered.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: While stuck in the Ground Hog Day Loop and under too much stress, Nate suggests she take a break and have some fun. A montage is then shown of Zari goofing off and enjoying herself with no consequences. She later goes back to Nate and tells him she already did the "fun montage".
  • Leeroy Jenkins: She was often chastised for being reckless and not following orders, at least until "Here We Go Again" where she had a Heel Realization thanks to Gideon.
  • Living MacGuffin: Her first episode is about the Legends trying to save her from Kuasa — she joins the Waverider because she's safer there then in 2042.
  • Loophole Abuse: Her speciality. She always tries to find possible ways of changing history for the better without breaking time.
  • My Greatest Failure: Her failure to prevent her brother's death, revealing that when A.R.G.U.S. agents came for her family, she ran away in fear.
  • Mythology Gag: At one point, she's reluctantly persuaded to wear an outfit resembling her costume in the comics, though she dislikes it and prefers civilian clothes.
  • Not Wearing Tights: Only wears a superhero costume once for the Crisis on Earth-X crossover.
  • Odd Friendship: With Ray, the perpetual optimist. Mainly because they both have similar interests and hints that Ray is not nearly as naive as he seems.
    • Develops another one with Jonah Hex in ''The Good, the Bad, and the Cuddly," despite Zari being initially uncomfortable around an ex-Confederate solider, but he eventually wins her over with his unflinching politeness and respect towards her. It's strongly implied that he has a crush on her and by the end of the episode, possibly mutual.
  • Race Lift: The original version of the character, created for the 1970s series The Secrets of Isis and later featured in a comic book spin-off, was Caucasian and of Anglo-Saxon ancestry with the surname Thomas and played by Colorado-born actress Joanna Cameron. The Legends version is Muslim, has the surname Tomaz, and is portrayed by Iranian-born actress Tala Ashe.
  • Rebellious Spirit: Though all of the Legends qualify to varying degrees, Zari really stands out when she joins with her general disregard with the team's duty to protect the timeline and issues accepting Sara's authority. It makes sense, considering she's grown up under fascist, authoritarian regime that's outlawed all religion and imprisons metahumans.
  • Ret Gone: Her fate at the end of Season 4. Due to the Legends altering the timeline, causing her Bad Future to be prevented, she never joined the Wave Rider crew and is somehow replaced by her brother.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Is less committed than the other Legends about preserving history and exploits loopholes in history to help people. Notable examples include dropping Helen off in Themyscira instead of returning her to Troy and encourages Jax to use such a loophole to warn 1992!Stein about his future death.
  • Second Love: For Nate, with Amaya being his first.
  • Ship Tease: With Jonah Hex of all people, then with Nate.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: Has shades of this dynamic with Gideon unsurprisingly, given that one is computer hacker and the other is a sentient computer. Later evolves into Vitriolic Best Buds after Gideon subjects Zari to a "Groundhog Day" Loop simulation to show her the importance of staying with the Legends.
  • Taking Up the Mantle: Her brother was the original owner of the totem, but he got killed by A.R.G.U.S.
  • Time-Shifted Actor: Her young version appears during Season 4 and she finds the dragon egg.
  • Time Travel Romance: In Legends Season 4 she becomes romantically involved with Nate, who is from the mid 2010s and is old enough to be her father in her own time.
  • Token Religious Teammate: Is explicitly Muslim and adheres to practices like not eating pork and observing Ramadan.
  • Unresolved Sexual Tension: With Jonah Hex.

A popular toy in the 1990's.


  • All Your Powers Combined: The giant Beebo was created by combining the power of all of the Totems of Zambesi.
  • Blue Is Heroic: All Beebos are given blue fur, and are meant to delight children. The Beebo conjured by the Totems manages to save the world by killing Mallus.
  • Bring It: The giant avatar Beebo does this before wiping the floor with Mallus.
  • The Cameo:
    • A few Beebos are seen in The Flash, where they get melted by Axel Walker.
    • A Beebo is seen as a carnival prize in an episode of Supergirl, where it gets stepped on by Otis Graves.
    • Curtis Holt gives a Beebo to Rene's daughter on an episode of Arrow.
  • Captain Ersatz: Beebo is a cross between a Furby and a Tickle Me Elmo.
  • Cuddle Bug: The selling point of the toy and spouts programmed lines like "Beebo wants cuddles!" It becomes the giant Beebo's Finishing Move in its fight with Mallus.
  • Defictionalization: As you'd expect when a TV show creates a stuffed animal, actual Beebos were sold in stores.
  • Fusion Dance: Amaya, Zari, Sara, Wally, Nate, and Mick turn into Beebo after combining the Totems powers.
  • Iconic Sequel Character: Doesn't appear in the Arrowverse until the sixth year.
  • Incorruptible Pure Pureness: Beebo's image of being a lovable, huggable, docile creature, asking for cuddles, love, food and drinks, is what prompts Nate to accidentally envision it into becoming the pure avatar the Legends conjure to defeat Mallus.
  • Kaiju: The Beebo summoned by the Totems dwarfs Mallus.
  • Kid-Appeal Character: The fact that Beebo is a freaking toy makes it this Trope personified.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Beebo is a cute toy that is able to not only defeat the Season 3 Big Bad, but effortlessly curbstomp him.
  • Meteor Move: Beebo finishes off Mallus with this with a resulting giant, blue heart-shaped explosion.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Beebo goes from being a simple toy to a giant that singlehandedly manhandles and defeats Mallus.
  • War God: He's not known as "Beebo, the God of War" for nothing, as the toy was worshipped by the Vikings at one point. When he says "Teehee, Beebo hungry!", what it really means is THAT HE HUNGERS FOR BATTLE!!!
