Protagonists

    General 
  • Action Girl: Given the franchise, the girls are able to kick butt in their own, unique ways.
  • Age Lift: Much like in the original series, the major heroes are all teenagers in high school rather than young adults/adults like in other source material.

    Wonder Woman (Diana Prince) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ww_3.png
Voiced By: Grey DeLisle

  • The Ace: Diana's just as skillful as a leader and combatant as her previous counterparts, along with being incredibly smart in AP Calculus by scoring a 102% on a test.
  • Adorkable: The girl's a genius, but try to get her to act like a teen or show her a text message full of emojis and she's clueless. Put a bowl of ice cream in front of her, and she loses all of her manners and just digs in.
  • Age Lift: In most media featuring her, she is an adult woman. While she is still a teenager like in the rest of the franchise, she is the Amazonian equivalent of a teenager rather than the Earth equivalent.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Well, obviously, but this version of the character is noticeably more muscular than any of the other main girls except for Supergirl.
  • Appropriated Appelation: In this incarnation, the "Wonder Woman" name was apparently first used by the media.
  • Big Eater:
    • After having her first taste of sweets, she scarfs down not only her dessert (a huge bowl of ice cream), but also those of the other five girls.
    • "#LetThemEatPie" also has her in a pumpkin pie-eating contest against Giganta (and once Diana finds that kind of pie's also delicious, goes at it with fervor).
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Hers are considerably thicker than those of the other girls.
  • Black Cloak: Initially wore this to hide her identity.
  • Blunt Metaphors Trauma: She briefly thinks that the girls are being literal when Barbara says she would kill for a Batman poster in "Sweet Justice". When they explain the concept to her, it doesn't go well, with her going up to a burrito vendor and scaring him because she says she'll kill him (and doesn't help by chasing him screaming "Accept my payment or die!").
  • Character Exaggeration: Her love for ice cream. When she first tried it out in the comics, she was rather cheerful to the point of being accidentally threatening (pointed a sword at the vendor while asking for ice cream and later thanking him), while here, she's crazy for it, taking her friends' ice cream after scarfing down hers, declaring it better than ambrosia in Elysium, and wanting to go to the ice cream parlor after every victory.
  • Competition Freak: Takes this attitude toward a pie-eating contest in "#LetThemEatPie," even though she's completely unfamiliar with the rules. Once she tastes the pie (pumpkin) and finds out she likes it, she becomes even more determined to win, scarfing down every pie on the table and even tackling Lois Lane to get the one she's holding up.
  • Composite Character: Though she has Diana Prince's name and alter-ego, she has more in common with Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (her younger sister), especially the version in Super Best Friends Forever. They have the same role and Grey DeLisle even uses the exact same voice for both of the characters.
  • Contralto of Danger: Wonder Woman's voice is noticeably deeper than the others'.
  • Cool Big Sis: Plays this to the other girls, offering emotional and moral support.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Diana is already a seasoned superhero with hundreds of years worth of training and experience.
  • Fish out of Water: She’s still a bit new to “Man’s world” and needs the others to teach her how to fit in and pass as a normal person.
  • Foreign Exchange Student: The alibi that her team makes for her.
  • Gentle Giant: She's big and strong, but she's also incredibly sweet and friendly.
  • The Hero: She’s an accomplished superhero and the team leader, and teaches the others how to be heroes.
  • Humble Hero: Despite her incredible aptitude and prowess, she's incredibly modest.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She's one of the tallest females in Metropolis High.
  • Mistaken Age: She ends up meeting the team because a truancy officer saw her walking around outside and assumed she was cutting class. Although she is equivalent to a teenager.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Combined with It's All My Fault when in "#KaraCare" starts off with Kara suffering massive Kryptonite exposure from an explosion after facing Metallo (meaning his remains had Kryptonite), and it's implied Diana put Kara in that position. However, Diana tries to help Kara recover to make up for that.
  • Nice Girl: Diana is one of the nicest members of the gang, even to someone like Barbi.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Averted. Diana almost always speaks with an American accent, but her accent in this series is meant to accentuate her heritage.
  • The Paragon: She's described as strong, brave, disciplined, a star athlete ("Most Likely to Win an Olympic Medal," according to the school yearbook), and the perfect student.
  • Proportional Aging: 317 years old, but still considerably shorter than the adult Amazons, and would normally still be treated by them as an adolescent. She snuck behind her mother's back to pass a difficult series of trials, which is why she still calls herself "Wonder Woman" and eventually gets them to recognize her as an adult.
  • Race Lift: She has olive-toned skin to accentuate her Greek inspiration.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She's 317 and is referred to as immortal.
  • The Runaway: The vagrant kind. She initially tells the girls that she was sent by Themyscira to bring peace to the world, but then her mother shows up to bring her home and reveals that she ran off.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: In her civilian persona, she sometimes uses glasses to help disguise herself. Diana is described as being intelligent and bookish.
  • Statuesque Stunner: 6' tall, and growing, if the other Amazons are anything to go by.
  • Sweet Tooth: Her profile video shows her really enjoying a bowl of ice cream. In "#LetThemEatPie," we see pumpkin pie is another dessert she learns to love a lot.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ice cream.

    Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bg_7.jpg
Voiced By: Tara Strong

  • Actor Allusion: There are way too many similarities between Batgirl and Twilight Sparkle, other than their voice actor.
    • More so considering Tara was considered for the role of Pinkie Pie as well.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job:
    • Batgirl's costume has changed from its contemporary dark blue design to classic purple.
    • Her eyes are green instead of their more common blue.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Usually a more sensible and serious type, Barbara in this incarnation is a goofy Genki Girl.
  • Adorkable: She fills this trope as a spunky, energetic fangirl of pretty much anything heroic with Batman being her main fixation.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: With her boundless energy comes a tendency to get easily distracted.
  • Badass Normal: She’s a normal human with no superpowers, but she makes up for it with gear and skill.
  • Batman Gambit: When she suspects that the other girls are supers, she starts a food fight in order to get them all detention and have the chance to talk with them.
  • Burger Fool: Has a part-time job at the Burrito Bucket, a local fast food joint. Unlike most cases, Babs loves the job and the only real drawback is the Jerkass boss.
  • Class Clown: According to the yearbook.
  • Complexity Addiction: "#FaultyPowers" has her using up all three of her "rejected" gadgets to save one person. And the foam grenade on its own would have been perfect for it.
  • Composite Character: She's Barbara Gordon with a more Stephanie Brown-type personality.
  • Expressive Ears: The bat ears on both her cowl and her civilian hoodie move up and down based on her emotional state.
  • Fangirl: She's described as a video game and comic book fangirl. She's also a massive fangirl of Batman.
  • Fun Personified: Barbara likes having fun.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Bits of home-built high-tech gear and sketches for other projects are scattered all over a secret lab, and she's built a hidden computer system into the vanity counter in her bedroom. Ventures into Bungling Inventor at times, but even her rejected gadgets come in handy as seen in "#FaultyPowers".
  • Genki Girl: She's spunky and upbeat.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Suffers from a trace of this with respect to Batman's sidekick Robin, and thinks she's much more suited for the job.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Loves heroes, especially if it's Batman.
  • Hyper-Awareness: Like her hero, she's very good at picking up on the small details. It's how she gets her friends together in the first place.
  • Iconic Item: Her bat-eared hoodie.
  • Instant Costume Change: She can don her Batgirl outfit in a split-second. Her bedroom has a pair of bunk beds; she sleeps up top and uses the bottom one as a changing booth, with a curtain to block it from view.
  • Ironic Fear: She's terrified of bats, and completely freaks out when one gets into her room.
  • Jumped at the Call: Upon meeting actual superheroes, she wastes no time in rallying them into a team.
  • The Lancer: She’s the one who forms the team, and motivates them into action. She also built them a hideout.
  • Motor Mouth: Veers into this when she gets overexcited.
  • New Transfer Student: She moves from the dank, grim city of Gotham to the bright and colorful city of Metropolis, where she meets the rest of the girls upon enrolling in the local high school.
  • Secret Identity: Her father (Commissioner Jim Gordon) doesn't know that she's Batgirl.
  • Significant Green-Eyed Redhead: She's one of the main characters and has this color palette.

    Supergirl (Kara Danvers) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sg.png
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Nicole Sullivan

  • Adaptational Personality Change: She's more rebellious and hot-tempered than most Karas, especially the original DCSHG Supergirl, though Kara is sometimes angry even in the comics (to the point where she was once a Red Lantern).
  • Adaptational Dumbass: In the comics, Kara is a science genius even by Kryptonian standards, and Krypton is eons more scientifically advanced than Earth. Here, however, Kara is significantly less proficient at science. In "#SuperWho", she doesn't understand any of Karen's scientific speak, even though it is literally what they learned in chemistry class in her Earth high school that day.
    Karen: Remember chemistry class? High temperatures can break chemicals down to their base elements!
    (Kara stares at her and lifts her shoulders and hands up in an "I don't know" shrug)
  • Apologetic Attacker: She initially does this in her fight with Diana, as she thinks that she just shoved a normal girl through the wall.
  • Amazonian Beauty: Kara in the comics is usually drawn as rather petite despite her Kryptonian strength, here she's the buffest girl on the team, even more so than Diana, an actual Amazon.
  • Berserk Button: Being compared to Superman or mistaken as his sister. She trying hard to be a superhero in her own right, but feels overshadowed by her more popular cousin to the point one can see she some shades of resentment. She nearly yelled at a kid at one point when they thought of her as a Distaff Counterpart.
  • The Big Girl: She’s hot-tempered and aggressive, and as a Kryptonian, is by far the physically strongest person on the team.
  • Blood Knight: "#KaraCare" shows that, unlike every other iteration of the House of El's surviving members, she actually wants to fight Doomsday!
  • Boyish Short Hair: She wears an uneven bob and has a rebellious attitude.
  • Composite Character: Mixes Supergirl with Power Girl's hair, physical appearance, and personality. Likewise, her civilian clothes strongly resemble Conner Kent's 90's outfit.
  • Destructive Savior: Brash and abrasive attitude + Kryptonian powers = things getting wrecked.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: Her attitude will easily get the better of her, leading her to wreck and damage things in the process without her really realizing it. Alarm clocks, cars, lockers, her cell phone...
  • Dressed in Layers: Wears her costume under her clothes.
  • Flying Brick: She wouldn't be Supergirl if she wasn't one.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's super envious and resentful of her cousin Superman. Considering she's really the older one (she babysat him on Krypton in fact), only less mature physically and experience wise due to spending years drifting in space in hypersleep while Clark came to Earth first and thus didn't have that problem, she's got a pretty good reason, not to mention Clark doesn't do any favors by being patronizing towards her, and a bit of a showboat.
  • Heavy Sleeper: Kara can sleep through almost anything; it's partially justified by her invulnerability, so she doesn't even feel a flamethrower or a dynamite explosion.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Her coolness is accentuated by her leather jacket.
  • Hidden Depths: Despite being something of a punk rocker ("Most Likely to Become a Rock Star," according to the yearbook), she has an incredible soft spot for cute things.
  • Hippie Parents: If the dress they foisted on her for picture day is any indication, her foster parents/legal guardians, the Danvers, are these.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She's brash and rebellious, but still good.
    Barbara Gordon: She wants you to think she doesn't care, but really, she's just a big softie.
  • Kryptonite Factor:
    • "#KaraCare" starts off with her suffering from this after facing Metallo. His "remains" have enough Kryptonite to severely weaken Kara to where Diana feels guilt about putting Kara to where it could have happened.
    • "#MeetTheCheetah" shows another weakness Kryptonians have: magic. When facing the Cheetah, she accidentally gets zapped by Zatanna (who was aiming for the Cheetah herself, but the Cat Girl dodged the spell in time).
  • Not a Morning Person: Smashes her alarm clock while waking up. Fortunately, she has spares.
  • Playing Sick: The short "#KaraCare" has Kara pulling this stunt, getting the other girls to care for her long after she recovered from Kryptonite Poisoning.
  • The Power of Rock: She uses a guitar like the one she has at home (which keeps blowing out the electrical wiring) to help save the day in "#SweetJustice."
  • Pungeon Master: Likes to let loose as many puns as she can apply to the situation. Rarely do her teammates appreciate them.
  • Sleepwalking: Supergirl is guilty of flying in her sleep. And being a Heavy Sleeper, waking her up is pretty much impossible, so the only option is to direct her back to the bedroom, which is almost as difficult.
  • Stubborn Hair: Her hair is absolutely impervious to any attempts to cut or style it, including power sanders, blowtorches, and even dynamite.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: The pilot establishes that she Does Not Know Her Own Strength, and her attacks are telegraphed, as shown by Wonder Woman managing to avoid her punches rather early on in their fight.
  • Worf Had the Flu: Of course the resident Flying Brick would stand the best chance against Cheetah - which is why she's lured into Zatanna's magic blasts.

    Green Lantern (Jessica Cruz)

    Bumblebee (Karen Beecher) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bb_7.png
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Kimberly Brooks

  • Adaptational Personality Change: She's less confident and shyer than other incarnations.
  • Adorkable: She's a scientific genius who's rather low on confidence, making her cute as a button.
  • Animal Motifs: Bumblebees. Aside from her costume, she has a variety of bee-themed boxes and furniture in her house. Ironically, it wasn't her first choice of name, with Wonder Woman having come up with the moniker and Barbara encouraging her to use it.
  • Appropriated Appellation: She takes up the moniker of "Bumblebee" after Diana calls her that (as well as shoots down the name Karen wanted to go for), and Barbara tells her to roll with it.
    Bumbleblee: I actually prefer "The Indestructible, Gamma-Phase, 1000k—"
    Wonder Woman: Bumblebee.
    Batgirl: Trust me, it's way better.
  • Apologises a Lot: Bumblebee is this way. In the pilot, she tries to angrily shut the door in Barbara's face but keeps on apologizing, leading Babs to just shut it herself.
  • Beta Outfit: Starts out with a homemade suit that's duct-taped together, but still has the Hyperspace Arsenal and shrinking ability.
  • Cute Clumsy Girl: Has a habit of stumbling and spilling her books/equipment all over the place.
  • David vs. Goliath: A running theme with Karen's situations is her meek and small nature being forced in handling larger problems, sometimes by herself.
  • Deadly Dodging: One of her tactics when engaging in battle in her smaller form. This becomes most effective against Giganta, where Karen's able to ironically mock "Why are you hitting yourself?"
  • Dork in a Sweater: She's a shy, unassuming character in a black-and-yellow striped sweater.
  • Duct Tape for Everything: Or electrical tape, in this case. She uses a lot of it to hold the parts of her prototype suit together, unintentionally making herself look something like a bee.
  • Expressive Hair: Her buns sag when she's sad or stressed.
  • Fangirl: Of the Twilight films parody, Just Before Dawn. All the girls watch them, but Karen's the most invested in the Love Triangle element.
  • Heart Is an Awesome Power: In "#SheMightBeGiant", she laments that her suit only shrinks her despite her efforts to make it do otherwise, but ends up discovering that shrinking is a great advantage against Giganta, since she's too small and quick for Giganta to get a hit on her.
  • Henshin Hero: With her upgraded suit, a necklace serving as a version of a Transformation Trinket and a fluid Transformation Sequence where her armor is attached to her body.
  • Locked into Strangeness: She gains her blonde Skunk Stripe after being electrocuted.
  • Power Glows: When she activates her suit and turns tiny, her body glows yellow.
  • Science Hero: Uses her extensive knowledge of science to build a suit that allows her to fly and shrink.
  • Shoulder Cannon: One of her super suit's many accessories.
  • Shrinking Violet: She's a shy, insecure character. Even more, shrinking is precisely her power.
  • Skunk Stripe: Has a bright yellow streak in her brown hair.
  • The Smart Girl: She’s a scientific genius who invented her suit and gear.
  • Teen Genius: She created her own superhero suit and powers, and the yearbook lists her as "Most Likely to Graduate Early."
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: She initially believed that there's no benefit to being small. It wasn't until her fight with Giganta in "#SheMightBeGiant" that she starts seeing the benefits.

    Zatanna (Zee Zatara) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/best.jpg
Click here to see her civilian identitiy 
Voiced By: Kari Wahlgren

  • Adaptational Modesty: No fishnets this time around. Sorry, Paul Dini.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Zatanna's black hair is now dark purple. It becomes a sparkling, glowing purple that transitions from a slightly lighter shade to a much lighter one when using her powers.
  • Adaptation Name Change: In most continuities, Zatanna's code name is her real name, Zatanna Zatara. Here, Zatanna is her code name and her real name is Zee Zatara, "Zee" usually a notable nickname.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: She's more of an egotistical showboat ala Trixie than how she is in most incarnations.
  • Alliterative Name: Zee Zatara.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: Her most impressive display of power in the premiere is used to flip the off switch on a trash compactor (and still took too long to actually save the practice mannequins). Wonder Woman explicitly calls her out on it, saying that her powers are impressive, but that she uses them in a way that lacks purpose.
  • Badass Cape: She incorporates a cape into her costume after Barbara recommends it.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: She has 2 bunnies that she uses for her magic shows. Her phone case also has a bunny on it.
  • Composite Character: The smug attitude of this Zatanna may be borrowed from mainstream Zatanna's younger cousin, Zachary Zatara.
  • Costume Evolution: She initially wears the classic Zatanna look (which is also her stage outfit), but Wonder Woman tells her to change it. Her current costume is inspired by her Bronze Age Justice League of America appearance.
  • The Fashionista: In her profile video, Batgirl describes Zatanna as "stylish", and the latter comments on Bumblebee's highlights. At multiple points in "#SweetJustice", Zatanna is seen applying makeup while ignoring the chaos around her. The yearbook lists her as "Most Likely to Become an Actress."
  • How Do I Shot Web?: She's a powerful sorceress, but she still has a lot of work ahead of her.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Downplayed. She's not a jerk in any way, but she definitely has a bit of an ego and is not afraid to show it off. With that said, she also does whatever it takes to do the right thing for others.
  • Magical Incantation: She casts spells by reciting them backward.
  • Mundane Utility: She frequently uses her magic for things like housecleaning.
  • Neat Freak: She impulsively cleans up Kara's bedroom when dropping off her rabbits.
  • Phoneaholic Teenager: She likes to take selfies.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her design incorporates various shades of purple into it, and her magic aura also appears purple.
  • Purple Eyes: She is from a Human Sub Species of magical beings. To go with this, she has abnormal purple eyes.
  • Sdrawkcab Speech: Her method of casting spells is reciting them backward.
  • Shameless Self-Promoter: When she's cleaning Kara's room she turns one of Kara's Heavy Metal posters into one of the advertisements for her shows.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: She makes a huge deal about her "first solo production", which turns out to be a children's birthday party.
  • Smug Super: Oh so much, especially at the beginning. She puts a lot of pizzazz into simple spells and conjures up applauding hands when she accomplishes something.
  • Waistcoat of Style: She wears one as part of her civilian outfit, accented by a ribbon tie.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Zatanna's hair, typically jet black, is sparkly purple here. With her eyes, this also counts as Curtains Match the Window.

Antagonists

    Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel) 
Voiced By: Tara Strong

A student at Metropolis High School and a member of the Super Villain Girls.


  • Adaptational Modesty: She returns to her classic harlequin attire when acting as a villain, and wears a red/blue sweatshirt/cutoffs/boots ensemble as a civilian.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: She and Barbara were going to be best friends in this continuity before Barbara moved out.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Harley in the previous continuity was a hero and had wanted to be from childhood. Here, Harley is again a straight villain.
  • Affably Evil: She's a very supportive friend to Barbara, even if she's a dangerous supervillain much of the time.
  • Character Exaggeration: Downplayed with her civilian form. In most portrayals, the "normal", pre-Joker Harleen Quinzel is not as energetic as her Harley Quinn self. This is also reflected in having a downplayed accent (which implied to be her real voice). In DC Super Hero Girls, Harley is energetic and speaks in her normal voice at all times. However, it is shown that Harley is already Harley Quinn at the start of the series.
  • Evil Is Petty: In "Beeline" she basically admits she's blowing up a bridge just to avoid a math test.
  • Likes Clark Kent, Hates Superman: In their civilian identities, Barbara and Harleen were best friends before the former moved (and still keep in touch over the internet), neither being aware they were fighting as costumed hero and villain.
  • Multicolored Hair: She has blonde hair with her pigtails dyed blue and red.
  • Wild Card: Her role in the Super Villain Girls team.

    Poison Ivy (Pam Isley) 
Voiced By: Cristina Milizia

A student at Metropolis High School.


  • Adaptational Modesty: Inverted. Unlike the previous series, she is no longer portrayed wearing pants.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: She seems to have lost her shyness from the previous continuity when she's Poison Ivy. Pamela Isley, on the other hand, is a little more sedate and shy.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Poison Ivy is a villain instead of a hero like in the previous continuity.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Like some incarnations, Ivy gains green skin.
  • Cool House: She lives in an apartment building with a huge greenhouse on the roof and vines covering the exterior walls.
  • Evil Redhead In Green: As Poison Ivy, her hair is bright fiery red, with a green outfit and green-tinted skin.
  • Evil Laugh: "#HashtagFrownyFace" shows her having one before Harley sends her an emoji text. Which has her stop to complain why couldn't Harley just text "like a normal person?"
  • Green Thumb: Poison Ivy also is good with growing plants, like her previous incarnations.
  • Not So Different: "#HashtagFrownyFace" shows she can't understand Harley's emojis, just like Barbara's friends can't understand HERS.
  • Pointy Ears: To accentuate her elfish looks, she has pointed ears.
  • Sexier Alter Ego: Pam Isley the soft-spoken high schooler has a sickly greenish tint to her skin, bags under her eyes, limp and messy brown hair, and wears frumpy, baggy clothes. As Poison Ivy the vampy villainess, the tint becomes bright mint green, her hair gains fiery-red vibrancy and volume, and she's dressed in a figure-hugging leotard.

    Star Sapphire (Carol Ferris) 
Voiced By: Kari Wahlgren

  • Adaptational Modesty: The Star Sapphire Corp's costumes are infamously Stripperific in most depictions. Here, she's dressed like a princess in a pink, poofy gown and tiara.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She's a villain, which is more on par with her early comics portrayal than in the previous web-series.
  • BFG: Creates one, that shoots explosive hearts, to attack Jess.
  • The Cheerleader: Her civilian outfit is a cheering uniform, either in red or pink.
  • The Dreaded: To Hal Jordan. The otherwise fearless guy is completely terrified of her.
  • Dumped Via Text Message: Her Freudian Excuse for going off on Hal. Even Jessica gives Hal a What the Hell, Hero? once she hears about it.
  • Love Makes You Crazy: Same deal as the source material; as her love powers the violet Power Ring, it supercharges her love to madness levels.
  • Murder the Hypotenuse: What she wanted to do before Jess could convince her that nothing is between her and Hal and never will.
  • No Indoor Voice: Since a manic headspace comes with her power, Carol is constantly SCREAMING as Star Sapphire.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Not simply in a physical sense; she doesn't get the idea of boundaries when she and Hal are an item. In "#PictureDaze", she won't stop texting Hal for even a second.
  • Psycho Ex-Girlfriend: She's this to her ex, Hal Jordan. Not that she doesn't have the right to be mad after he broke up with her via text message.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: She's puny, even for a teenager, but her power and attitude are ginormous!
  • Woman Scorned: Big time. Even Hal text blocking her is enough to bring down her wrath.
  • Yandere: A major one for Hal Jordan. If Carol's not punishing Hal for "toying with her feelings" or trying to forcibly keep him to herself, she's trying to take out the "competition".

     Catwoman (Selina Kyle) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/d8pbhddxkae5ey.jpg
Click here to see her civilian identity 

Voiced By: Cree Summer

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Gloves with claws that seem able to slice clean through anything are part of Catwoman's costume.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: This version of Selina is a very smart criminal mastermind as opposed to simply a crafty thief. The show even implies that she came up with the idea to form a supervillain team to overcome the heroes rather than the typical evil genius antagonists.
  • Adaptational Villainy: She's back to being an Anti-Villain at most.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Not an overt case, but traditionally Catwoman relies on craftiness, martial arts, and agility in equal measure. Here, she only has the craftiness and agility, but makes the most out of it.
  • Cat Smile: Befitting not only the cat theme, but her mischievous personality.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Her civilian identity bears a very striking resemblance to Halle Berry's look.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Selina is still the Queen of quick wits on this show. Best exemplified when she makes numerous jabs at Supergirl during one of her heists.
    [Supergirl stands next to some Neanderthal statues]
    Catwoman: The family resemblance is uncanny.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Batgirl. While Barbara is spunky, peppy, and noble, Selina is cold-hearted, cynical, and selfish. Barbara is also humble enough to not force her way on her heroic teammates, acting as a more secondary leader, while Catwoman calls the shots around her group and tells them off from time to time. They also seem to target each other when given the chance, even having similar combat skills.
  • Giggling Villain: All throughout "#FightAtTheMuseum", she can't stop laughing at Supergirl's suffering.
  • The Leader: The Super Villain Girls teaming up was her idea, and she's usually the one calling the shots.
  • A Lighter Shade of Black: While her teammates want to hurt people or wreak havoc, Selina's primary motivation is stealing stuff.
  • Multicolored Hair: Her dark brown hair is streaked with purple.
  • Mythology Gag: Cree Summer has said she's channeling the Eartha Kitt version of Catwoman.
  • Race Lift: Catwoman is black.
  • Sticky Fingers: It's Catwoman. From diamonds to candy bars, if Selina wants it, she'll swipe it.
  • The Tease: Catwoman maintains her flirtatious nature. For example, she playfully teases Barry when ordering a tea so he won't notice her swiping stuff from his shop.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Selina's civvies are very biker chic, but her love for jewelry is apparent with swanky earrings, bracelets and a necklace.
  • Troll: She gets quite a lot of amusement when she manipulates Supergirl into falling into her trap. Though it's revealed that she was intentionally mocking her to deceive the heroine, that doesn't stop her from enjoying it.
  • Whip It Good: Catwoman has her signature weapon. Notably, it is a cat o' nine tails rather than the standard bull whip.

     Cheetah (Barbi Ann Minerva) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_ppot4mvon01waqhkdo1_1280.png
Click here to see her civilian identity 

Voiced by: Tara Strong

  • Adaptational Badass: The Cheetah has been suffering heavy Villain Decay in DC animation thanks to being no match for Wonder Woman or even against any of her fellow heroes. However, this incarnation of Cheetah might be the most deadliest yet since she's able to take out all of the heroes (sans Supergirl and Wonder Woman) with relative ease. She also has enough speed to get away from them in flash and is intelligent enough to trick Diana to hide her identity.
  • Alpha Bitch: She's a star of the school's gymnastics team, but is very rude to her teammates and seems to feel entitled to the position of team captain. Bonus points for being wealthy.
    • Academic Alpha Bitch: She does seem to care about her high grade point average. One of the reasons she despises Diana even more is when her rival gets a higher grade on a test than her.
  • Always Second Best: She was the best in school and gymnastics until Diana came along, and this causes her to try to curse Diana with the Cheetah's curse. However, it affects Barbi instead, making her a Cat Girl intent on taking out Diana.
  • Animal Motifs: Cheetahs, wearing a yellow fur coat with spots, and her eyebrows looking like a cheetah's.
  • Composite Character: She's the third Cheetah, Barbara Ann Minerva, but her motivation (anger at being upstaged) is based upon Priscilla Rich, the first Cheetah. She also transforms into a cheetah/human hybrid, but her Cheetah form looks most similar to Priscilla's costume.
  • Evil Brit: She speaks with a posh English accent, as a nod to the citizenship of the original Barbara Ann Minerva.
  • Evil Feels Good: Even after Diana advises her to let go of jealousy and hate, she decides Cheetah's rush of power is too great to give up.
  • Evil Is Petty: She tries to put a curse on Diana Prince for upstaging her.
  • Freudian Excuse: Babs speculates, In-Universe, that Barbi's need for outside validation is likely based in "absentee parenting and a lack of proper modelling in childhood."
  • Fur and Loathing: As a Rich Bitch, she has a golden fur coat with white collar and cuffs.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: She's jealous of Diana's achievements and attention, and tried to curse her for that reason. Even when Diana tells her to let go, she affirms to herself in private that she won't, partly because she enjoys the power that comes with being Cheetah (which might be the curse reaffirming Evil Feels Good).
    • Eye Colour Change: When Barbi feels the power rush, her eyes go from their normal brown to a glowing green.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: It's not as overt as her comic counterpart, but from the looks of it, Cheetah was actually going to devour Bumblebee until Diana first encountered her.
  • Jerkass: Even before becoming the Cheetah, she's not a nice person. Hell, the very first thing she does in the series is to insult one of her fellow gymnasts who complimented her on a near-perfect vault.
  • Jerk Jock: A Rare Female Example that's not The Cheerleader. She's a talented gymnast, but also very arrogant, petty and unpleasant.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Played with. Barbi herself is pretty Laughably Evil thanks to her petty tantrums and rivalry with Diana, but as the Cheetah, she manages to be terrifying. Her Cheetah form is the first antagonist to be treated dead seriously and she proves herself as a real villain by effortlessly taking out half of the supergirls without breaking a sweat. She was even intending to eat Bumblebee before Diana came along.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted for her and Barbara Gordon. To avoid confusion this, she's exclusively known by the nickname Barbi.
  • Rich Bitch: She's a wealthy blonde with a fur coat and a sports car and an Alpha Bitch attitude.
  • Taxidermy Terror: The interior of the Minerva mansion is covered in hunting trophies and animal skin decor, befitting Barbi's villainous nature.
  • Unknown Rival: She serves as this to Diana, but her "rival" actually views her as a friend. Unlike the rest of the villains, she's not a bully harboring obvious hatred towards the heroic girls, but does pass herself off as a nice girl, fooling them even more.

     Giganta (Doris Zeul)

Click to see her civilian identity 

  • Adaptational Ugliness: Traditionally depicted as a Statuesque Stunner and Amazonian Beauty, this series has chosen instead to emphasize her role as The Brute (likely because there's an abundance of attractive females as it is). A Gross-Up Close-Up on her massive hands in "#SheMightBeGiant" doesn't help.
  • Ambiguously Brown: A first glance at Doris's fair skin probably wouldn't tip off that this version is half-Black, rather than mildly tanned Caucasian like her web-series counterpart.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Typical example for the character, but she's smaller than usual. At the very least, her Giganta persona is double her normal size, and that occasionally changes between scenes. The comic book tie-in depicts her closer to her 3-story building stature.
  • Big Eater: Presses and eats up to 5 pies at once in a pie-eating contest, consuming a whopping 94 pies! However, she has a limit, losing to the Flash and Wonder Woman.
  • Berserk Button: Calling her "meathead" makes her even more aggressive. On the flipside, implying that she's pretty strong "for a girl" isn't any better.
  • The Brute: For the Super Villain Girls group, mirroring Supergirl's role.
  • The Bully: She's described as the kind of bully who beats her victim up, in contrast to her teammate Livewire, who takes aim at her victims' emotions.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Of the fair skin variety, with the redhead trait coming from her father.
  • Evil Is Bigger: Even without going Giganta, she towers over most of the Super Hero Girls.
  • Evil Redhead: Her hairstyle is red and bushy, and has no problem being a general menace.
  • Foil:
    • To Kara Danvers. Both are the tomboy powerhouses of their respective group with abrasive attitudes and come from scientifically advanced communities (though they're pretty Book Dumb regardless). Unlike Kara, Doris never feels guilty about exploiting her strength, and Doris's circle of friends encourage the worst out of her in villainy.
    • Also a foil to Karen Beecher due to her personality and powers being the complete opposite of hers.
  • Growing Muscles Sequence: Happens in "#SheMightBeGiant" when she unleashes her newfound powers for the first time, complete with close-ups of her bulging muscles and growing figure.
  • Hulking Out: When a sports store manager repeatedly underestimated Doris's sporting needs while shopping for weights, Doris angrily transforms and rages out in the mall.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Appropriately one of tallest females in Metropolis High.
  • Jerk Jock: Being a star school athlete herself, she balances lifting weights and throwing footballs with bullying puny folks around her school.
  • Jock Dad, Nerd Son: Inverted. Her parents are scientists while she's a Jerk Jock.
  • Mixed Ancestry: Her scientist parents consist of a redhead Caucasian father and a dark-haired Black mother.
  • Muscles Are Meaningful: Her Giganta form's pretty burly, and her strength alone can solo even the comparatively smaller Supergirl and Wonder Woman.
  • Psycho Serum: The growth formula she stole from her parents' laboratory. While it does make her "more pumped" for workouts, it also makes her highly susceptible to raging out and growing inhumanly large.
  • Race Lift: She's bi-racial in this series, being half-Caucasian and half-Black, rather than being fully Caucasian like previous iterations.
  • Tomboyish Ponytail: Her civilian look adopts this hairstyle, but becomes undone when she's Giganta.

     Livewire (Leslie Willis) 
Voiced By: Mallory Low
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_inline_psnjd54spa1s7itfo_540.jpg

  • Attention Whore: Orchestrating embarrassing moments for her classmates and posting them online? It's all to get more views for her channel. She ups the ante with more embarrassing videos that include all the other Super Hero Girls save Diana, and this leads to more being her "Shock-a-teers".
  • The Bully: She's described as the kind who's "out to kill your soul". Yikes.
  • Bully Brutality: Most of her "pranks" with her powers are painful but not at all lethal, but she also tries to make an elevator drop two stories. Eventually, she makes a public spectacle out of prolonged electrification of Wonder Woman, which drives away even her most mean-spirited viewers.
  • Catchphrase: Livewire starts her videos with a bellowing "What up, Metropolis!"
  • Clark Kenting: Leslie plays absurdly loose with her secret identity, pretending to have given up her show, then immediately stepped back up as Livewire. The letters "L" and "W" were even in her logo before this.
  • Delinquent Hair: She has a blue-streaked mohawk.
  • Energy Absorption: For more powerful attacks, she absorbs electricity from the environment.
  • Fan Community Nickname: In-Universe — she addresses her followers as "Shocketeers".
  • Fangs Are Evil: Not Leslie, but Livewire inexplicably has them.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: She's a vicious bully and decked out all in studded leather.
  • If It Bleeds, It Leads: Leslie tries to cause an elevator to crash so she could post it online.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Which leads to a final confrontation in Glen Morgan Square. Diana confronts Livewire, and she gets zapped. Once it becomes obvious, however, this isn't just a simple humiliation, it stops being funny. And the others, starting with Kara, show up to defend Diana against Livewire. Livewire's Energy Absorption powers up the ante with each new attempt, even draining Metropolis for a few minutes. But when the Girls still stand, together, Leslie tries one more time—only to find out she's got no power to draw from, and she's out of power. Which leads to her Humiliation Conga as others snap pictures of her, and the assembled folks cheering the Girls victory of Livewire. The news piece Leslie reads the next day shows how Livewire got her comeuppance at the hands of the Girls. Which leads to her followers splitting in droves to a new site: one with the Girls in videos being cute with cats they rescue. The kicker? There are FIFTY MILLION followers, with the joke "Wonder Woman breaks the Internet!!!" causing Leslie to scream "Seriously!?!" loud enough to be heard outside Metropolis.
  • Ride the Lightning: Livewire can turn into electricity to travel through, and take over, electronic devices. She's even escaped through cell phones, as apparently she can travel through wifi.
  • Sadist: Nothing's funnier to her than the pain and humiliation of others.
  • Shock and Awe: She's an electrically-based villain, like her DC counterparts.
  • Troll: She uses a social media channel to embarrass and bully her victims.
  • Villain Song: "A Million Volts," featured in "#ShockItToMe." It's all about how much she loves tormenting people.

    Lex Luthor 
Voiced By: Will Friedle

  • Age Lift: He's a teenager in this continuity, as opposed to being an adult.
  • Prematurely Bald: Very prematurely, since he's still a teenager.
  • Teen Genius: He's a teenager, but he's apparently still managed to create a company and become a billionaire.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He's well-liked by the public at large, and his mother raises no eyebrows at the fact Lex has a war suit (which she calls by name).

    Lena Luthor 

  • Age Lift: As opposed to the main series, where she's roughly the same age as the main characters, she's now a child here.
  • Bait-and-Switch Boss: The audience and the girls are led to believe Lex is behind the robot army but it’s really Lena, his little sister.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: In the previous continuity, due to being the de facto member of the Luthor family, she took most of her brother's traits. Here, she's made much younger and more immature, differentiating her a bit more from her brother, who is set to be a much more recurring villain.
  • Embarrassing First Name: Lutessa.
  • Enfant Terrible
  • Sibling Rivalry: Has a rivalry with her brother.
  • Starter Villain: She's the first villain the heroes face in the show, and what finally allows them to work as a team.

    Doomsday 
The beast that ...y'know... Superman.
  • The Ghost: Mentioned in "#KaraCare" to trick Kara out of bed. If anything, it shows that Kara relishes wanting to fight him.

    The Danvers 

Voiced By: Kimberly Brooks (Eliza Danvers), Keith Ferguson (Jeremiah Danvers)

Kara's foster parents/legal guardians.


  • Air Quotes: Mrs. Danvers use these to "Agree" with Kara that she "didn't do anything" to be transferred to Metropolis High.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: The way they spout platitudes in a nice, loving and passive-aggressive way would make even the most loving and proper daughter cringe.
  • Hippie Parents: If the dress they foisted on her for picture day is any indication, they certainly were.
  • Foil: To their rocker foster child.

    Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) 
Voiced By: Jason Spisak

A student at Metropolis High School.


  • Adaptational Wimp: While his comics counterpart is defined by his ability to overcome fear, here the sight of Star Sapphire makes him so scared his ring stops working. With good reason, though.
  • Age Lift: In the source material, he's older than Jessica, enough to be her mentor. Here, he's a teenager like the previous series, and they are peers both mentored by Kilowog.
  • Jerk Jock: Is sort of this in this adaptation. Except of course, when Carol has him cowering in fear, and among the upper echelon of heroes like Superman he's merely The Friend Nobody Likes.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Jessica, but any Ship Tease they may have with each other has yet to be seen.
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: When Carol got in the picture, Hal began to cower in fear so much his ring begins to crap out.
  • Unkempt Beauty: Early attempts to make him unattractive to Carol fall flat before he even goes out as it turns out that he can't help effortlessly pulling off any hairstyle. However, it's got a limit (which involves clothing several years too small for him and actively throwing his best features off).

  • Adorkable: Just an energetic ball of dorkiness considering his love of playgrounds, selfies and working at an ice cream parlor.
  • Age Lift: He's a teenager in this continuity, as opposed to an adult, just like the previous series.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Easily distracted by whatever fun thing is going on nearby, like a chess game, kids on a playground, or a burrito cart.
  • Badass in Distress: In "#BurritoBucket", Batgirl finds him tied up by bank robbers with animal masks.
    Batgirl: Flash?! What happened?!?
    Flash: Dude, I'm as surprised as you are.
  • Big Eater: He eats 1000 burritos in a few minutes in "#SpeedyDelivery". In "#LetThemEatPie" he's in a pie-eating contest and manages to eat 181 pies before losing to Diana.
  • Burger Fool: Averted; he works the counter at the Sweet Justice ice cream shop, but seems to enjoy his job.
  • Composite Character: His name is Barry Allen, but he's a teenager a la Wally West.
  • Mundane Utility: He uses his Super Speed to serve ice cream and make deliveries extremely fast.
  • Nice Guy: He's a very nice and altruistic person.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Plays both sides of a chess game in seconds, ending in a checkmate.
  • Worf Had the Flu: He goes to get his bosses' lawyer rather than help the girls fight the robots.

  • Purple Eyes: Keeping up what has become traditional in animation and the comics for two decades (plus) now, Lois has violet eyes though she's a normal human.
  • Seriously Scruffy: Lois is constantly disheveled, wearing an oversized cardigan and her hair in a messy bun, showing she is more focused on chasing stories than her appearance.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: While normally scruffy as mentioned above, her newspaper photo has her dressed more professionally.

    Superman (Clark Kent) 
Voiced By: Max Mittelman

  • Adaptational Jerkass: He's still a well intentioned superhero, but this Clark is a showboat who doesn't respect Supergirl all that much.
  • Age Lift: Downplayed compared to most of the cast, but he's only just a few years older than Kara, having been Superboy two summers previously.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite his reputation, Clark can be as stubborn and irritable as his cousin Kara, to the point of getting in a childish fight with her. He also seems to love the limelight and showing off while saving people.
  • Pale Females, Dark Males: Inverted, at least costume-wise; The blue of his costume is much lighter than Kara's.
  • Smug Super: His egotism and showboating somewhat justify the ire of Kara, who is chronologically older but less aged and experienced only because she spent years adrift in space in hypersleep as Clark beat her to the planet Earth.

    Steve Trevor 
A cadet from the local military school whom Diana develops an attraction to.
  • Amazon Chaser: Par the course for Steve. He meets a tall, buff girl who can lift him like a loaf of bread, and his response is to ask her for a date.
