Suddenly, magically, pretty automatically, crushing it side by side!
  • Action Girl: Given the franchise, the girls can kick butt in their own, unique ways.
  • Adorkable: Each one of them is this in their own way.
    • Diana is very prone to displaying this type of behavior, typically when she's discovering "World of Man" customs.
    • Babs fills this trope as a spunky, energetic fangirl of pretty much anything heroic with Batman being her main fixation.
    • Kara is tough as nails, but can't help but gush over cute animals. It's actually quite endearing.
    • Jess is normally this in other media due to being more introverted and insecure of herself. She's still this here thanks to her girl scout-like idealism and willingness to see the best in others.
    • Karen's a scientific genius who's rather low on confidence, making her cute as a button.
    • Zee isn't this so much in the present day, but as a child, she was such a cutie thanks to her love of her father, and trying to hide her insecurities.
  • 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.
  • Transformation Sequence: "#Frenemies" reveals that they each have a unique transformation sequence for switching from their civilian forms to their superhero forms (though Karen's had already been shown in previous episodes).

Voiced By: Grey DeLisle

Princess of the Amazons, Wonder Woman arrived in the World of Man to spread peace and prosperity by fighting evil while also being shown by her friends how to fit in as Diana Prince, foreign exchange student from Greece.


  • Absurd Phobia: A nightmare reveals she's terrified of technicolor teddy bears asking for hugs. Her reasoning being that people put stuffed versions of mankind's deadliest creatures in the beds of children.
  • 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.
  • Achilles' Heel: Steve Trevor. His mere presence makes Diana unable to do anything.
    • 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, or really any dessert, and she loses all of her manners and just digs in.
    • Put Steve Trevor in the same vicinity as her and she's pretty much hypnotized.
  • 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.
  • Ambiguously Bi: It's obvious that she has a huge crush on Steve Trevor, yet she also has quite a bit of chemistry with Tatsu Yamashiro.
  • Appropriated Appelation: In this incarnation, the "Wonder Woman" name was first used by the media.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her workout outfit, first seen in "#SoulSisters".
  • 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 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.
  • Crush Blush: She blushes very heavily around Steve Trevor.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Diana is already a seasoned superhero with hundreds of years worth of training and experience.
  • Extracurricular Enthusiast: Along with being captain of the gymnastics team and on the decorating committee, as of "#CrushingIt" Diana is also on the volleyball team, debate team, marching band, and drama club at school. Being The Ace, she does it all with relative ease.
  • 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.
  • Good Cannot Comprehend Evil: Due to being Skilled, but Naïve, Diana doesn't understand some villains are not simply misguided people, but enjoy doing bad things. Hence why she takes Leslie's blatantly fake apology at its word, and believes she got Barbi to let go of her hatred.
  • The Hero: She’s an accomplished superhero and the team leader, and teaches the others how to be heroes.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: A couple of episodes feature Wonder Woman being incapacitated by her own Lasso of Truth.
    Wonder Woman: The Lasso compels me to tell the truth! ...This is humiliating.
  • Homeless Hero: Diana was initially living in a tree, as per Amazon tradition to live exactly where they find themselves after arriving in a new land. As of #HousePest, she has all but been adopted by Julia Kapatelis, a history professor studying Themyscira.
  • Humble Hero: Despite her incredible aptitude and prowess, she's incredibly modest.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: She's one of the tallest females in Metropolis High, standing 6'2".
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: She's quite curvy and built, which might be because of her age.
  • Jabba Table Manners: It seems Amazon society lacks any table manners. Diana gorges on handfuls of her food, sometimes planting her face into it if she really likes it.
  • Large Ham: She can enter this territory when it comes to her discovering "World of Man" activities, such as expressions and dodgeball.
  • Love at First Sight: Diana fell hopelessly in love with Steve Trevor, the first boy she ever met, when she first arrived in the World of Man...
  • Love Makes You Dumb: ...and whenever she sees him, she goes from a fierce, brave Amazon warrior to a blubbering, lovesick teen in an instant.
  • 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.
  • Morality Pet: Diana can be seen as this to Katana. Even when fighting her, she can't bear to severely hurt her due to how kind and caring she was towards her. Upon accidentally absorbing her soul into the Soultaker sword, she shows immense regret, and releases all the souls she captured.
  • Mundane Object Amazement: Frequently, due to being out of touch with the World of Man. For instance, she mistakes a coin-operated fortune tellernote  for an oracle similar to the Oracle of Delphi and is immediately enraptured by it.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Happens to Diana twice.
    • Combined with It's All My Fault the first time when in "#KaraCare" starts 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.
    • "#SoulSisters Part 2" has Diana lead the gang to find the person stealing the souls of the villains of Metropolis, including the "Super Villain Girls" (which happened in Part 1). However, they find Katana, and Diana is the only member of the gang who survives Katana's Soultaker attacks (the souls of the others are sucked into Soultaker).
  • Nice Girl: Diana is one of the nicest members of the gang, even to someone like Barbi.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Averted. Almost every incarnation of Diana speaks with an American accent, but her accent in this series is meant to accentuate her heritage.
  • Oh My Gods!: She frequently invokes the names of various Greek gods, leading her to say things like "By the white beard of Zeus!".
  • 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.
  • Plot Allergy: Diana is willing to take care of Dexter until she holds him, and it's revealed she's highly allergic to cats.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Still wearing the good-old red, yellow, and blue.
  • Princess Protagonist: Is the Princess of the Amazons and one of the main characters.
  • 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.
  • Secret Public Identity: Just like most incarnations, her identity is public knowledge.
  • She's Got Legs: Has the longest, and most shapely legs out of anyone else on the team.
  • Sleepwalking: She sometimes fights in her sleep.
  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Only around Steve Trevor. Get her in front of him and the Amazon princess dissolves into a blushing, babbling mess.
  • Statuesque Stunner: 6'2, and growing, if the other Amazons are anything to go by.
  • Sweet Tooth: She seems to really enjoy desserts. She scarfs down ice cream after tasting it for the first time, and in "#LetThemEatPie", we see pumpkin pie is another dessert she learns to love a lot.
  • Taking the Bullet: She takes a hit from one of Katana's soul-sucking blasts to save an innocent man's life.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ice cream.
  • Warrior Princess: An Amazonian Princess, this is to be expected.
  • What Does She See in Him?: None of the other girls can figure out why she's so infatuated with Steve Trevor, who's a Ridiculously Average Guy.
  • What the Hell Is That Accent?: Diana's accent confuses many viewers. Fans have wondered whether it's Italian, Spanish, Mexican, or what? It's likely supposed to be Greek, to go with Themyscira's Greek inspiration.

    Batgirl (Barbara Gordon) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_11_60.png
"Superawesome superheroness... here we come!"
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Tara Strong

Daughter of Gotham's Commissioner Gordon and Batman's biggest fan, Barbara moved to Metropolis in the middle of the school year. As Batgirl, she uses an extensive collection of gadgetry, inspired by the Caped Crusader.


  • 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.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Babsy-Wabsy" and "Babbly-Boo" (used by Harleen Quinzel).
  • Animal-Eared Headband: She wears a bat-eared hoodie in her civilian identity.
  • 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 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.
  • Cool Bike: She owns an impressive Bat-themed moped with inflatable wheels, rocket boosters, and a parachute.
  • 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.
  • Conditioned to Accept Horror: Gotham City is a garbage-strewn, murderous Wretched Hive, but for Barbara, it's home.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: Babs' dad called her "Pumpkin Pants," seemingly after the "Princess Pumpkin Pants" show.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She's not very fond of Robin, but was horrified when she thought Harley Quinn flattened him to death.
  • Expressive Ears: The bat ears on both her cowl and her civilian hoodie move up and down based on her emotional state.
  • Expy: While it is not really confirmed, Tara Strong gives her a similar personality to how she portrayed Unikitty!
  • Fangirl: She's described as a video game and comic book fangirl. She's also a massive fangirl of Batman.
  • Fiery Redhead: Barbara is an excitable, fun-loving redhead.
  • 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 concerning Batman's sidekick Robin, and thinks she's much more suited for the job.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Loves heroes, especially if it's Batman.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: In spite of multiple red flags, she never realizes what kind of person her longtime BFF Harleen is.
    • Averted when it comes to Slade Wilson / Deathstroke. Barbara is able to realize there's something very off about him pretty quickly.
  • 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 real 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.
  • Likes Clark Kent, Hates Superman: Not the biggest Robin fan, but adores Dick Grayson for being such a kind, considerate child. Conversely, despite her admiration for Batman, she thinks Bruce Wayne is an obnoxious egomaniac.
  • 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.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Barbara has a comically exaggerated fondness for growing up in a Wretched Hive like Gotham, and finds the seedier corners of Metropolis downright cozy.
    Barbara: Oh, so we need to hide a body? No problem—I grew up in Gotham.
  • 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.
  • The Team Wannabe: She desperately wants to be Batman's sidekick, but he doesn't seem to know she exists, and her odds have gotten even worse since she moved away from Gotham.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Burritos. She works in a burrito restaurant and snuck in a bucket of them when going to the movies with her friends.

    Supergirl (Kara Danvers) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_7_60.png
"Okay I am a superhero alright? Ugh, so what?"
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Nicole Sullivan

As the last daughter of Krypton, cousin to Superman, and adopted daughter of the Danvers, Kara has a bit of an anger problem thanks to Superman and being seen as a delinquent, but she's still able to save the day as Supergirl.


  • Acquired Situational Narcissism: After donning the "Power Girl" identity and costume, she very quickly lets the fame go to her head, to the point of claiming she flies solo. It took her almost getting killed by Livewire again to snap out of it.
  • 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)
  • Adaptational Modesty: After deciding to let the people think Supergirl died in the fight against Livewire, Kara takes on the new identity of Power Girl. However, the famous Cleavage Window on her outfit is noticeably a lot smaller than the original Power Girl's.
  • 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, whereas 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 (and "#PowerSurge" even sees her don the Power Girl costume and identity). Likewise, her civilian clothes strongly resemble Conner Kent's 90's outfit.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Suffers from this in "#AdventuresInBunnySitting", gushing over the pair of white rabbits Zatanna leaves in her care and even giving them nicknames.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: She was old enough to remember when Krypton was destroyed and was frozen in space for years before being found. Then, she was expelled from Smallville High School for destroying the gym, even though she insisted she'd been framed for it. In "#TheGoodTheBadAndTheBizarre," the principal of Metropolis High uses this as grounds to accuse her of a rash of vandalism and suspend her. She turns out to be innocent; a Bizarro counterpart of her was responsible for both incidents.
  • Destructive Savior: Brash and abrasive attitude + Kryptonian powers = things getting wrecked.
    • Deconstructed in #PowerSurge, as her destructive way of fighting causes most to not actually like her despite the good she does.
  • 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 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.
  • Hartman Hips: Her hips are not as wide as her SBFF counterpart, but still.
  • 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, as shown in "#AdventuresInBunnySitting".
  • Hippie Parents: If the dress they foisted on her for picture day is any indication, her foster parents/legal guardians, the Danvers, are these.
  • Insistent Terminology: She insists that the only kryptonite is actual Kryptonite, getting annoyed when Babs compares Diana's lovesick reaction to Steve to it.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: In general, Kara is brash and driven by jealousy, but she's not wrong about Clark's ego or the fact that she doesn't get her deserved respect from the public.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Again, 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). Also, in "#SoulSisters", she's as vulnerable to Katana's sword attacks as anyone else.
  • 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 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. This comes back up in "#FightAtTheMuseum" where Diana points out that her Leeroy Jenkins attacks won't work all the time. She took this advice after being trolled by Catwoman.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: "#LivingTheNightmare" implies Kara is afraid of bugs, specifically cockroaches.
  • 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) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screenshot_10_27.png
"Fighting is never the answer!"
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Myrna Velasco

The newest recipient of a Green Lantern Ring, Jessica is a nature lover who aims to protect. Oh, and she's also a pacifist, so she always finds another way to battle as Green Lantern.


  • Adaptation Personality Change: She was neither a pacifist nor a Granola Girl in the source material. This likely has to do with the Stealth Pun of her being a Green Lantern.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Inverted. Due to her darker roots in the comics, Jessica here is made to have become better adjusted by the time of the show.
  • By the Power of Grayskull!: The Green Lantern oath seems to be mainly used like this in the show, instead of recited when recharging the rings. Except for the times when she zaps into uniform without saying it, but you're not supposed to be taking this show seriously, to begin with.
  • The Chick: She’s a pacifist who tries to resolve problems without resorting to violence.
  • Deadpan Snarker: As seen here when hanging out with Hal Jordan.
    Jessica: Oh, Hal, must you be so wrong about so many things?
  • The Determinator: Refuses to fight, even when Wonder Woman is yelling at her in the Training Montage.
    • In the short "#VeggieBurritoBucket", while filling in for a sick Babs' shift, she steadfastly refuses to serve meat to the customers, no matter how much they complain about her vegetarian substitutions, or how much Barbara's supervisor yells at her. When he tells her the meat is actually imitation meat (real meat being too expensive for them), she quickly and enthusiastically changes her tune.
  • Dope Slap: She punches Hal several times for his insensitivity in "#HateTriangle" when he broke up with Carol via text message.
  • Energy Bow: Creates one, with her ring, to stop Star Sapphire's heart barrage.
  • Facial Markings: When she powers up, the emblem of the Green Lantern Corps frames her right eye.
  • The Fettered: Lauren Faust has said she made her a pacifist because the Green Lantern Ring made her too powerful.
  • Friend to All Living Things: She loves volunteering at the animal shelter and adopts a stray cat named Dexter, even after it briefly turns into a Red Lantern and fights her in the pet store.
  • Granola Girl: She's a big activist, especially concerning environmental matters. She was voted "Most Environmentally Conscious" in the yearbook. She is a Green Lantern, after all.
  • HA HA HA— No / Rapid-Fire "No!": Her reaction to Star Sapphire assuming that she and Hal are together. Stretched out for a full ten seconds.
  • Hartman Hips: Her hips are noticeably wider than her bust or waistline. It's more obvious when she's in her Green Lantern costume than as a civilian, though.
  • Has Two Mommies: "#HousePest" reveals Jess has two mothers, without directly saying so.
  • Lighter and Softer: Played with. She had already undergone her Dark and Troubled Past and overcome with her struggles with it according to Word of Godinvoked, so her story in the show will be about her moving forward with her life.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: "#MisgivingTree" has Jessica trying to save human workers from Poison Ivy's rage when Jessica deflects a bulldozer Ivy throws at her and the workers. Instead of into somewhere safe, it hits an ancient tree that civilians Pam Isley and Jessica Cruz had chained themselves to. The tree is split it open, killing the tree. When Jessica tells Ivy those workers could have been killed by Ivy, a grieving Ivy counters that Jessica HAD killed the tree. Jessica is aghast at realizing this, and Ivy believes with THAT killing act, "You are UNWORTHY of the color of Life, Green Lantern! And one of these days, you will pay."
  • Nice Girl: If Jess had any more compassion, she'd be an INDIGO Lantern.
  • Nice Hat: She wears a faded olive green beanie when not in costume.
  • No Sense of Personal Space: Specifically with Pam Isley. Jess keeps embracing her at every opportunity and Pam is silently irritated each time. But as she never speaks up about it, Jess never gets the hint.
  • Not So Above It All: She's rather smug about choosing a nonviolent solution in the Training Montage.
  • Power Glows: Her whole body glows a faint green when she powers up, including her eyes (normally brown).
  • Pulling the Rug Out: Her non-violent method of beating Kilowog in a sparring match.
  • Pyrrhic Victory: "#MisgivingTree" has Green Lantern accidentally killing an ancient tree her civilian self tried to save. Why? To save the "innocent lives" of those humans wanting to cut it down in the first place.
  • Refusal of the Call: In her first appearance, she's seen trying to give the power ring back to Hal who refuses to take it.
  • Secret Keeper: Being a Green Lantern, she knows Hal Jordan is one too.
  • Sigil Spam: In addition to the Green Lantern Corps symbol on her face and uniform, the hem of her dress displays a ring of them while she's in her civilian identity.
  • Skunk Stripe: Jessica has two neon green ones in her long brown hair. These appear when she's powered up and are otherwise a lighter shade of brown.
  • Stealth Pun: Along with being in the Green Lantern Corps, her Granola Girl tendencies make her very, very green.
  • Still Sucks Thumb: Relapses into this when she's having a nightmare.
  • Take a Third Option: Being a pacifist, she tends to find a different solution to combat without physically fighting.
    Jessica: I just believe that when it comes to fighting, there's always another way.
    • Rather than destroy the construction equipment about to "kill" the mannequins she's supposed to protect during her training, she encases them in a safe and moves it well out of range. This backfires when the "monster" attacks her teammates instead.
    • In "#RageCat", she can't get any of her friends to adopt Dexter because he's a jerk, but doesn't want the animal shelter to put him down. Since neither of those options works for her, she decides to adopt him herself (to his annoyance).
  • Team Mom: She's incredibly nurturing towards her friends and tries to help them in the best way she can. In "#TheSlowAndTheFurious", she reprimands Zee, Kara, and Diana for fighting over a radio station in her van like a mother would with her rowdy kids.
  • Technical Pacifist: She doesn't like fighting, and when she does have to deal with enemies she focuses on either defending herself and her teammates or on disarming the enemy or other non-violent methods. That said, she's not above hitting Hal Jordan when she thinks he's being difficult.
    • She also justifies violence against Plant Mooks by her being vegan.
  • Transformation Trinket: Alongside all the other things her Green Lantern ring can do, it also lets her transform into her superhero outfit.
  • Violently Protective Girlfriend: Played for laughs in "#HateTriangle", when Carol/Star Sapphire starts attacking Hal at Metropolis High, Jess is initially reluctant to fight Carol, until her shield is broken and the fight becomes inevitable, she reaches out to Carol with her energy fists... and gives her a consoling hug, telling her that Hal doesn't love her and she could do so much better, by learning to love herself. Star vows to return and make Hal good enough for her.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Gives this to Hal in "#HateTriangle" when Carol admits she was Dumped via Text Message by Hal.
    • And gets it from Poison Ivy in "#MisgivingTree" when she accidentally kills a 300-year-old tree that their civilian selves have been fighting to save.

    Bumblebee (Karen Beecher)

"Oh, I'm not gonna try. I'm gonna do!"

Voiced By: Kimberly Brooks

A shy Gadgeteer Genius, Karen is one of the smartest, but shyest, girls in school. As Bumblebee, she uses a self-designed armored suit that allows her to fly and shrink.


  • Adaptational Personality Change: She's less confident and shyer than other incarnations.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In more incarnations Kara has brown eyes. Here, she has green eyes.
  • 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.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: Karen is 14, whereas the rest of the group are all old enough to drive. She's also the smallest and meekest.
  • Beta Outfit: Starts with a homemade suit that's duct-taped together, but still has the Hyperspace Arsenal and shrinking ability.
  • Brainy Brunette: Karen has brown hair and she's a Science Hero.
  • But Not Too Black: Her skin is lighter than in the previous series and her eyes are green, rather than brown.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Her powers come from her armor.
  • 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.
  • Locked into Strangeness: She gains her blonde Skunk Stripe after being electrocuted.
  • Nice Girl: She's among the nicest characters in the show.
  • 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 superhero suit and powers, and the yearbook lists her as "Most Likely to Graduate Early."
  • Transformation Trinket: She uses a necklace with a honeycomb-shaped pendant to transform into her armor.
  • 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)

"You can call me, the mysterious, the fabulous, the awe-inspiring... Zatanna!"

Voiced By: Kari Wahlgren

A stage magician by trade, Zee aspires to be an "arteest" and follow in her father's footsteps. As Zatanna, she can do real magic... and she loves to show it off too.


  • 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 similar to Trixie or Rarity than how she is in most incarnations.
  • Alliterative Name: Zee Zatara. Oliver takes the time to mock it in "#ScrambledEggs" while the two were paired for an Egg Sitting assignment.
  • Animal Motifs: She has a rabbit theme going on, in reference to the classic Pull a Rabbit out of My Hat trick. She owns two magical rabbits, her phone case has a rabbit on it, and when she first developed her powers, rabbits would randomly appear.
  • 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.
  • Berserk Button: Adding to the Green-Eyed Monster entry below, she does not take well to people not paying attention to her magic.
  • Bunnies for Cuteness: She has two bunnies that she uses for her magic shows (warning: Explosive Breeders who like each other a lot). Her phone case also has a bunny on it.
  • Captain Ersatz: A downplayed example. Purple hair, magic powers, ego, fashion, and prissiness in a show made by Lauren Faust? Characters like that are a Rarity, to be sure. But you'd be forgiven for making the connection.
  • Combat Stilettos: She's the only one in the group who always wears high heels. Lampshaded when Barbara has to wear them, but falls and crashes.
  • 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.
  • Daddy's Girl: She was exclusively raised by her father and thus the two are very close to one another.
  • Even the Girls Want Her: Casey Krinsky is CRAZY about her...until we find out the truth.
  • Everyone Has Standards: She has a large ego but takes her future passion very seriously. In particular, when it comes to the theater, she will not stand for goofing around or sabotaging the competition.
  • The Fashionista: The most fashion-focused girl in the group. Aside from having the most outfits out of any of the girls, she's also the one they go to for ideas, such as Diana in "#SweetJustice" and Kara in "#PowerSurge". In her profile video, Batgirl even describes Zatanna as "stylish", and the former's yearbook lists her as "Most Likely to Become An Actress."
  • Green-Eyed Monster: And how! Towards other performers stealing the spotlight from her.
  • Hair Flip: Has done this a couple of times in both civilian and hero form.
  • How Do I Shot Web?: She's already a powerful sorceress, but she still has a lot of work ahead of her.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Has very pronounced curves.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: A downplayed example. Zatanna isn't a straight example of Jerk with a Heart of Gold, but more of a Ms. Vice Girl. Even so, she still makes some insightful points.
    • During the girls' first disastrous attempt as a team, Zatanna makes a sharp, but accurate note that all Bumblebee did during the fight was hide.
    • Her anger at Kara for not following her strict rules for her magical rabbits is valid given how it was because of Kara not taking it seriously that led to an increasing bunny population problem.
    • Taking away Oliver's part as the lead man in her play in "#DramaQueen" was harsh but not uncalled for as he blatantly and proudly admitted to sabotaging another person's chance at the role.
  • Large Ham: She has a rather large ego thanks to being the more artistic of the group.
  • Lovable Alpha Bitch: She's pretty, vain, and rather full of herself, but still a good person overall.
  • Magical Incantation: She casts spells by reciting the words backward.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: True to the origins of the character, she's a stage magician by trade but comes from a Human Subspecies with actual magical powers. In this version, she was her father's non-powered magical assistant first, discovering her powers (and becoming privy to his) as she grew up.
  • Missing Mom: Zee was raised exclusively by her father, and she doesn't mind at all.
  • Ms. Vice Girl: As stated before, she has a large ego and loves showing off, but she's still a nice girl.
  • 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, and is determined to show up for school picture day with an immaculate appearance.
  • Phoneaholic Teenager: She likes to use her phone a lot, mainly for selfies.
  • Properly Paranoid: She is correct in that no one should have the Book of Eternity, not even a "benevolent philanthropist" like Lex Luthor.
  • Puberty Superpower: She started to develop magic powers without any warning during her childhood and couldn't control them at first. Her father was happy to find out about this, because he'd been worried that she might never have magic as he did.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her design incorporates various shades of purple into it, and her magic aura also appears purple.
  • Really Moves Around: She and her father lived with their act on the road before they were successful enough to have somewhere in Metropolis to perform regularly.
  • Rags to Riches: During her earlier youth, she and her father were a traveling magic show that didn't make a lot of money and they lived in an RV. However, after one amazing performance, they got a worldwide tour and her father became an entertainer in a popular casino.
  • 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. In "#AdBlockers," she spends so much time putting up ads for one of her shows (and competing against Oliver for advertising his own show) that she forgets to actually put it on.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Oliver Queen. Expect the two of them to trip the other up every time they're on screen together.
  • 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 in "#SweetJustice". She puts a lot of pizzazz into simple spells and conjures up applauding hands when she accomplishes something.

Super Villain Girls

    General 
  • Transformation Sequence: "#Frenemies" shows that, like the Superhero Girls, they each have a unique transformation sequence where they switch from their civilian forms to their villain forms.
  • Villain Song: "Too Much Fun" featured in "#Frenemies", which is about how much they enjoy causing trouble.

    Harley Quinn (Harleen Quinzel)

"Youse guys are villains? Why didn't you say something?!"
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Tara Strong

Babs' best friend back in Gotham, Harleen loves and cares for her friend, while also being a lover of practical jokes. But she also masquerades as Harley Quinn, Batgirl's archenemy and the Super Villain Girls' wildcard fighter.


  • Adaptational Modesty: She returns to her classic harlequin attire when acting as a villain, and wears a red/blue sweatshirt/cutoffs/boots ensemble (resembling her New 52 look) as a civilian.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul:
    • She and Barbara are best friends in their civilian identities, rather than only knowing each other as enemies.
    • Rather than a romantic admirer of Joker whom he manipulated into being evil, Harley is just a (seemingly non-romantic) Loony Fan of his who's probably never met him.
    • Instead of a close friendship with Pam Isley and being partners in crime, Isley can't stand Harley and only works with her alongside the other Villain Girls.
  • Adaptational Villainy:
    • Harley in the previous continuity was a hero and had wanted to be from childhood. Here, Harley is again a straight villain.
    • Unlike in the comics and original DCAU backstory, the Joker doesn't have any influence on her besides being her idol. She became a supervillain on her own.
  • Affably Evil: She's a very supportive friend to Barbara, even if she's a dangerous supervillain much of the time.
  • Affectionate Nickname: "Leenie-Beanie" (used by Barbara).
  • Beware the Silly Ones: She may act silly most of the time, but she can still be quite dangerous. Most prominently, she makes a habit of stealing the trademark weapons of the more serious heroines in the shorts. She also got a hold of Wonder Woman's Lasso of Truth twice.
  • Brooklyn Rage: She always speaks with a noticeable Brooklyn accent, but the trope mainly comes into play when she notices, detects or believes that someone has made Barbara Gordon unhappy.
  • Bubblegum Popping: Her Transformation Sequence has her blowing a bubble that pops and completely covers her, only for her to quickly spin and reveal that she's now fully costumed underneath all that gum.
  • 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 Brooklyn 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. There's also more emphasis on her antics being annoying to others, rather than amusing.
  • Clark Kenting: Her supervillain name is very close to her given name, but no one draws the connection. Not even after Harley Quinn, a clown-themed supervillain once active in Gotham appears in Metropolis on the same day that Harleen Quinzel, a civilian fan of the Joker who lived in Gotham, moves to Metropolis.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Barbara has been her best friend since second grade, and despite her villain double-life, she genuinely loves and cares for Babs. In "#GothamCon", she tries to murder Robin several times because he humiliated Barbara and genuinely thought it would have made her happy. When she mistakenly believes Barbara was actually a Robin fan due to how happy she was over him being alive, she immediately tries to stop the bomb she planted under his chair and later tracks him down, and threatens him to sign an autograph for her.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Batgirl, their themes and history both in and out of universe naturally makes Harley Batgirl's opposite number.
  • Evil Is Petty: In "Beeline", she admits she's blowing up a bridge just to avoid a math test.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: The Super Villain Girls welcome her with open arms in "#Frenemies", but by their later canon team-ups, they can barely tolerate her.
  • Genki Girl: She has the most hyperactive, enthusiastic, and liveliest personality of the Super Villain Girls.
  • Girlish Pigtails: She wears her hair in pigtails, reflecting her childish, silly nature.
  • Lazy Alias: This show is the first time that "Harley Quinn" is an alternate identity for Harleen Quinzel, rather than simply a name change.
  • 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 before Harleen eventually moved to Metropolis), neither being aware they were fighting as costumed hero and villain. As Batgirl and Harley Quinn, they have it in for each other. Once Harley moves to Metropolis as well, they both start actively ignoring blatant hints of the other's identity.
  • Multicolored Hair: She has blonde hair with her pigtails dyed blue and red.

    Poison Ivy (Pam Isley)

Voiced By: Cristina Milizia

A nature-loving student at Metropolis High School, Pam prefers to be a loner, with only her plants, mainly Phil, for company. As Poison Ivy, she uses her control over plants to take Earth back from humanity.


  • Adaptational Ugliness: Her civilian identity looks very sickly, whereas Pamela usually looks attractive in or out of costume.
  • Adaptational Modesty: Her dress is less revealing than the usual spandex made of leaves, though unlike the previous series, she is no longer portrayed wearing pants.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: She lacks any sort of charm/Mind Control powers Poison Ivy traditionally employs. She's also not a Poisonous Person, except through her plants.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Poison Ivy is a villain again instead of a hero like in the previous continuity.
  • 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. She's also a meat-eater who looks downright unhealthy because of it, while other animated adaptations had her be a vegetarian in spite of her beliefs. While she is Pamela, her civilian look more closely resembles Ivy Pepper from the Gotham TV series.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: Ivy's first appearances in two shorts (before her first two episode appearances) hinted at a friendship with Harley Quinn in this continuity as well, only for both shorts showing that Ivy can barely tolerate Harley.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Like some incarnations, Ivy gains green skin.
  • Artistic License – Biology: Eating only meat is actually more harmful to plants than eating only plants, since a pound of meat takes a huge amount of plant life (not to mention water) to grow. Specifically, in the US, it takes 7 kg of grain to grow one kg of beef, and 4 kg of grain to grow one kg of pork; it also takes 20,000 litres of water to grow one kg of meat vs about 4,000 litres of water to grow one kg of wheat.
  • Bizarre Taste in Food: In "#ScrambledEggs", she eats two of the eggs the class is forced to eggsit. She eats the first one raw after receiving it (shell and all, apparently), and fries the second one to make a sandwich that she defiantly eats in class.
  • Cool House: She lives in an apartment building with a huge greenhouse on the roof and vines covering the exterior walls.
  • Deadpan Snarker: When civilian Pam is inclined to bother speaking to anyone, it's mostly in dry, deadpan tones.
  • Emo Teen: In her civilian form, Pam is a sulky, unhealthy looking loner who is easily driven to tears when harm comes to plantlife.
  • Evil Counterpart: She is this to Jessica. Jessica is outgoing and friendly while Pam is a loner. While Jessica is an activist who tries to preserve all life, Pam only cares about saving plants, even if it means costing human lives. (This even extends to their diet where Pam only eats meat while Jessica is a vegetarian.)
  • Evil Redhead: 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 is as good with growing plants, as her previous incarnations.
  • It Is Beyond Saving: She left Gotham because it was a "toxic cesspool" inhospitable to plant life.
    Nothing green will ever grow there again.
  • Jabba Table Manners: Shows this off in "#ScrambledEggs," belching loudly after eating one of the eggs at the beginning and end of the home economics assignment.
  • Likes Clark Kent, Hates Superman: "Like" might be too strong, but as of "#MisgivingTree," Pam can tolerate Jess as a fellow nature lover but loathes Green Lantern. However, in "#Vegecide," Pam saw Jess drink a vegetable-based smoothie and seemingly loses any respect even for her civilian identity.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: She believes that Gotham is a "toxic cesspool" that can't be saved, and that nothing green will ever grow there again.
  • Not Good with People: Ivy sees humans as monsters that wantonly murder plants, so socializing with them is not a top priority.
  • Not So Different: "#HashtagFrownyFace" shows she can't understand Harley's emojis, just like Barbara's friends can't understand HERS.
  • Nutritional Nightmare: She is the opposite of a die-hard vegetarian and eats only meat, leaving her in visibly poor health from an unbalanced diet.
  • Pointy Ears: To accentuate her elfish looks, she has pointed ears.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Is traditionally a Bat-villain, but in this version is mostly used to counterpoint Green Lantern. The Super Villain Girls already have two other Bat-villains anyhow.
  • 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, making her resemble her Gotham counterpart, Ivy Pepper. 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 dress.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: Pam has a very gentle voice. She retains it as Poison Ivy, which only makes it more jarring when she's ripping people apart with giant vines.
  • Straw Vegetarian: Inverted; Pam only eats meat because she hates seeing plants die. She apparently doesn't understand that the animal meat is made from an even larger quantity of plants. "#ScrambledEggs" also shows her eating a sandwich, even though bread is made out of plants.
  • Tamer and Chaster: Much like The Batman, this version of Poison Ivy is much less sexualized, and isn't a seductress in any way, because she's a teenager.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Pam has a deep connection to the vegetation she nurtures and the surrounding world, and only wants to protect them from corporate deforestation. She ends up seeing eye to eye with Jessica Cruz's nature preservation in "#MisgivingTree" as a result. One slight problem: she's willing to murder anyone that has murdered the greens in return.
  • You Need a Breath Mint: Implied, considering a green cloud comes out of her mouth every time she belches.

Voiced By: Kari Wahlgren

Hal's ex-girlfriend, Carol still pines for him persistently. As Star Sapphire, she wields a Violet Lantern Power Ring, similar to a Green Lantern's, only powered by love instead of will.


  • Age Lift: As with most other characters, she's been de-aged from an adult to a teenager.
  • Adaptational Modesty: The Star Sapphire Corps' 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. She's also this to the comic version of Star Sapphire who's usually Brainwashed and Crazy by the Zamarons or the Star Sapphire gem, while this version already had a few screws loose before getting the violet power ring.
  • 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.
  • Full-Name Basis: She refers to Hal and Jessica by their full names at nearly all times. There's no apparent reason for this, other than to make her sound crazier.
  • 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 explain there is not, and never will be, anything between her (Jess) and Hal.
  • 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.
  • Secret Public Identity: Out of the main villains she is the only one whose civilian identity is public knowledge, at least to Jessica Cruz and Hal Jordan.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Has violet eyes, like the Zataras and Lois Lane. It's unclear if her's are natural like their's, or a result of the Violet Lantern power.
  • Tiny Tyrannical Girl: She's puny, even for a teenager, but her power and attitude are ginormous!
  • Transformation Trinket: Like Jessica and Hal, she uses her ring to transform.
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to react to frustrations and slights with a girly gasp or squeek.
  • Woman Scorned: Big time. Even Hal text blocking her is enough to bring down her wrath one second later.
  • 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/helden_und_schurken_5.png
"Ooh, a game! Cats love to play..."
Click here to see her civilian identity 

Voiced By: Cree Summer

Selina is the school's biggest tease, able to snatch things away without attention. She takes this to greater lengths as Catwoman, while also taking great amusement in messing with everyone else.


  • 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.
  • Cat Smile: Befitting not only the cat theme but her mischievous personality.
  • The Chessmaster: She's good at manipulating events and people to produce the desired outcome. She also knows how to exploit the Super Hero Girls' flaws to her advantage.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Her civilian identity bears a very striking resemblance to Halle Berry's look, while her voice is inspired by Eartha Kitt (which was intentional on her voice actress' part).
  • 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.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She may be a criminal, but letting Metropolis get destroyed is a no-go. She betrays Lex, her temporary ally, because of his plan to let a meteor hit the city so he can recreate it in his own image.
  • 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: 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.
  • Leitmotif: A jazzy melody not unlike a Film Noir's theme.
  • 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. However, her civilian outfit more closely resembles Halle Berry’s.
    • Cree Summer's role as Catwoman could also be a subtle reference to her previous role as Nefertina, a cat-themed, whip-wielding heroine in the cartoon series Mummies Alive!.
  • One-Man Army: Takes down a whole squad of security guards, armed with only handcuffs, in "#AllyCat"
  • Race Lift: This Catwoman is African-American. Fitting, given her resemblance to Halle Berry as a civilian and her Eartha Kitt-inspired vocal performance.
  • Screw Destiny: When Lex tries to invoke You Can't Fight Fate on her due to his possession of the Book of Eternity, she seems resigned at first. Secretly, Catwoman tears off a page of the book detailing her decision to release the captured Super Hero Girls so that they can destroy a meteor hurtling towards Metropolis. Afterwards, she basically tells Lex that she did it because she's offended that he sees her as nothing more than a pawn in his game.
    Catwoman: No book tells me what to do.
  • 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 bullwhip.

"How dare you insult... Giganta! Now all shall feel my WRATH!"
Click to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Grey DeLisle

A strength-obsessed bully, Giganta tends to pick on the weak, with Karen as her main target. She turns into Giganta thanks to a serum that lets her grow to massive size.


  • 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 already 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.
  • Animal Motif: She occasionally crouches on all fours like a gorilla, with the body type to boot; a subtle call-back to her original origins utilizing the primate in some form.
  • 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 Diana.
  • 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.
  • Broken Ace: Embarrassingly for her, the Lasso of Truth reveals that Giganta's bullying temper spawns from her "overcompensating for deep insecurities rooting from a quest for perfectionism" and "an overpowering fear of not being good enough".
  • 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.
  • Dumb Jock: She's a star athlete at school, but her grades aren't the best. Ironically, her parents are both scientists.
  • 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 groups 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.
  • G-Rated Drug: The serum she uses is an obvious reference to steroids.
  • 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. This also happens during her Transformation Sequence in "#Frenemies".
  • Hidden Depths: "#LostAndFound" reveals that she's a bully mainly because of parental neglect and a constant craving for attention, and also that she's very self-aware.
  • 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.
  • Jerkass to One: Of the 2nd type (crueler to one). She's a massive bitch to all the other girls, but seems meanest to Karen/Bumblebee. Considering what a Nice Girl Karen is, this makes her seem especially bad.
  • 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.
  • Like Father, Unlike Son: She's nothing like either of her parents, who are a pair of very mild-mannered scientists.
  • 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.
  • Near-Villain Victory: In one short she accidentally injected the wrong formula and temporarily gained Super Intelligence, coming within a hairsbreadth of defeating the Super Hero Girls without them even realizing it.
  • 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) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/helden_und_schurken_1.png
"What up, Metropolis?!"
Click to see her civilian identity 
Voiced By: Mallory Low

A bully like Doris, Leslie takes to the Internet to embarrass anyone she can get a video of thanks to her social media channel. And she also fights as Livewire with her electrical powers.


  • 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: Unlike Doris who bullies people through physical intimidation, she goes for people's emotions by humiliating them on social media. She's described as the kind of bully 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 black/blue mohawk as a civilian, which turns three lighter shades of blue when she powers up.
  • 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.
  • Hate Sink: Leslie is not a nice person at all, as she relishes in Kick the Dog moments as shown in her debut episode.
  • 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.
  • Lack of Empathy: Thinks dropping an elevator full of people is funny and worth recording.
  • Large Ham: Leslie is a media personality. She's obnoxiously loud and likes to squeeze in puns, especially when on camera.
  • 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. This 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.
  • Moral Myopia: Leslie can dish it out but she can't take it. She's all for laughing at others humiliation, but has thin skin for when anybody laughs at her.
  • 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.
  • Right-Hand Cat: Not normally present, but pictured on the cover of How I Did It sitting her with a fur-on-end cat on her lap.
  • 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.

Other Antagonists

    Lex Luthor 
Voiced By: Will Friedle

The beloved leader of the world's largest company, and not secretly a supervillain out to conquer the world.


  • Age Lift: He's a teenager in this continuity, as opposed to being an adult.
  • Genius Sweet Tooth: Funny story: When Babs connects the destruction of Sweet Justice to his company, when the question is raised of what Lex'd have "against cupcakes," she's got nothing. As it turns out when the situation makes it back to him, he sounds as if he genuinely wants to see it up and running again; they make the best snickerdoodles in Metropolis.
  • It's All About Me: Much like his comic book counterpart, Lex won't hesitate to allow millions of people to die just so that he can be a hero and a savior to the rest of the world.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: After plotting to allow Metropolis' destruction by a meteor so that he can "rescue" its survivors, Lex seems to get away with his crimes by pointing out that the Super Hero Girls were the ones who trespassed onto his property in the first place. When he gets home, Lex learns that Catwoman has stolen everything from his penthouse, from his inventions to the first-class food in his refrigerator! Losing his composure for the first time, Lex gives a Skyward Scream. Although the girls do not get to see this, the viewers get satisfaction knowing that Lex has at least received some punishment for his evil deeds.
  • Narcissist: This is Lex Luthor we're talking about.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Unknown to the Super Hero Girls, Lex also managed to imprison the Invinci-bros and Superman to prevent them from stopping the meteor heading towards Metropolis. It was never shown how Lex managed to achieve this, but they're still imprisoned after the girls managed to destroy the meteor.
  • Prematurely Bald: Very prematurely, since he's still a teenager.
  • Take Over the World: The endgame of Lex's various evil plots is to turn the Earth into his Egopolis.
  • 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 

Lex's little sister.


    Cheetah (Barbi Ann Minerva) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tumblr_ppot4mvon01waqhkdo1_1280.png
"Let go of the green eyed monster, eh Diana? And why would I ever want to let go of this?
Click here to see her civilian identity 

Voiced by: Tara Strong

The top student in all things... until Diana appeared. Her jealousy causes her to turn into the Cheetah and target whoever she gets her eyes on.


  • 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 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, unlike the previous incarnation with an American accent.
  • 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.
  • Fake-Hair Drama: After being held by the Lasso of Truth in the short "Lost and Found", she forcefully admits that she's not a natural blonde and uses hair extensions.
  • Freudian Excuse: Babs speculates, In-Universe, that Barbi's need for outside validation is likely based in "absentee parenting and a lack of proper modeling 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 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.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: She gets away with her actions, only for most of Barbi's next appearances —not as Cheetah — have her hit by pranks (and by a dodgeball), almost making her the series' other Butt-Monkey.
    • And then as Cheetah, she takes on Catwoman... and loses.
  • 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 with 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.

    The Penguin (Oswald Cobblepot) 
Voiced By: Alexander Polinsky
A Teenage mob boss at Metropolis High.
  • Adaptational Wimp: The parasol wielding villain of the comics he is not, focusing more on threats than combat.
  • Blackmail Backfire: What happens to him at the end of "#EmperorPenguin" after Babs erases his phone.
  • No Smoking: The Penguin's trademark cigarette holder is replaced by a pencil here.
  • Un-Evil Laugh: He's got the squawky guffaw of the Batman (1966)'s Penguin.

    The Joker 

Batman's biggest foe.


  • The Ghost: He's mentioned several times, mostly by Harley, but hasn't appeared in person.

    General Zod and His Forces 

Voiced By: Liam O'Brien (Zod), Tara Strong (Ursa)

Villains from Krypton who were imprisoned by Kara's mother, Alura Zor-El. They have resurfaced on Earth to conquer it.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Ursa has darker skin than Zod and Non.
  • Arrow Catch: Zod manages to do this with a piece of kryptonite.
  • Authority Equals Ass Kicking: Zod, the trio's leader, is the most dangerous one, capable of fighting both Supergirl and Wonder Woman at once with relative ease, and, unlike Ursa and Non, he manages to Fight Off the Kryptonite.
  • Beard of Evil: Zod has his signature goatee and Non has a full bushy beard.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: These are very much the Terence Stamp, Sarah Douglass and Jack O'Halloran versions of our terrible trio.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: They easily outmatch the heroes in a straight battle. It takes teamwork, tactics and exploiting the Kryptonite Factor for the heroes to stand a chance.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Ursa has quite the dry wit at the heroes' expense.
  • Dumb Muscle: Per tradition, Non turns out not to be the sharpest knife in the drawer, and is exaggeratedly large.
  • Fight Off the Kryptonite: The heroes manage to use kryptonite to weaken Ursa and Non and send them back into the Phantom Zone, but Zod manages to do an Arrow Catch and crush it to dust before it can weaken him enough for them to try. It takes a massive water construct that Garth makes to do the job.
  • Kneel Before Zod: The Trope Namer commands his enemies to kneel several times over.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The most dangerous villains to appear in the show so far. They almost crushed a Bus Full of Innocents and it took two superhero teams working together to defeat them.
  • Long Bus Trip: Very long one. Except for one video game appearance, this seems actually to be the very first time that all three have appeared together in other media outside the comic books since 1980.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Non is not only distracted from crushing a bus by an incongruous magic show, he watches as Zatanna shoves arrows into a "basket trick" box, and is unhappy when Oliver Queen reappears without a scratch; Zatanna infers a bit late that it looks like he "wanted some gore".
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Allura managed to imprison Zod in the Phantom Zone; although they briefly escape, the heroes manage to seal them away again.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Zod and Non were more than willing to kill Allura, and don't hold back when facing the Superhero Girls.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Ursa has indigo hair with cyan streaks.

    Starro 

A (literal) Starfish Alien that conquers worlds.


  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Despite initially being captured, when Batgirl leaves to take a phone call, Starro quickly overwhelms the other heroines and is only "defeated" by being sent to another dimension.
    Batgirl: Hooray! You beat Starro!
    Bumblebee: No. Starro beat us.
    Green Lantern: Over. And over again.
  • Funny Background Event: The above-mentioned Curb-Stomp Battle happened in the background while Batgirl was talking on the phone to Harleen.
  • The Ghost: At first. Gets a Shout-Out in "#ShockItToMe". She?/he?/it then actually appears later in "#PhotoOops" and "#Frenemies".

    Dex-Starr 
Voiced By: Fred Tatasciore (cat sounds), Kevin Michael Richardson (ring)

A particularly unruly cat who ends up wielding a Red Lantern ring.


  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Inverted. There's no trace of comic Dex-Starr's tragic origins that drove the cat to villainy. He's nasty to begin with.
  • Adaptational Intelligence:
    • His internal dialogue often shows him as thinking in broken English in the comics. This incarnation can speak more coherently.
    • Rather than the ring making him an Uplifted Animal, Dexter seemed just as intelligent as a regular cat.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: When not wearing the Red Lantern ring, he looks more disheveled than his comics incarnation, to play up his anti-social personality and scary reputation.
  • Berserk Button: Very irritable in general, but he particularly hates having his tail grabbed.
  • Cats Are Mean: Instead of a tragic backstory, he's just a very cranky old cat. When he gets a Red Lantern ring he plans to burn down the world.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He "speaks" with a very deep voice after acquiring the Red Lantern ring.
  • Jerkass: Even before acquiring the Red Lantern Power Ring, he deliberately tries to destroy Barbara's Batman memorabilia, intentionally continues to set off Diana's allergies once he learns about them, and eats Garth's fish. He has a very notorious reputation of tormenting volunteers at the animal shelter, and is considered unadoptable because of it.
  • Leave Me Alone!: One of his grievances against Jessica is how overbearing her efforts to get him adopted are.
  • Nearly Normal Animal: Even without the ring, Dexter could understand human speech and concepts (like which of Barbara's things she'd most hate him for breaking), but he still acts like an animal.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite having human level intellect, he briefly plays with a cat toy that Jessica conjured up in their fight before he angrily destroys it.
  • Translator Collar: The Red Lantern ring translates his growls into human speech (which clearly come from the ring and not his mouth).

    Bizarro Supergirl 
Voiced By: Nicole Sullivan

A Bizarro version of Supergirl.


  • Bad is Good and Good is Bad: This mindset comes with the territory of being a Bizarro.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: She's proud of her evil and wants to be a greater villain than Bizarro.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Supergirl. She has opposite powers like freeze vision, flame breath, and super-inhaling, and has reversed morality, but is otherwise exactly like Supergirl.
  • Not So Different: She feels as overshadowed by Bizarro's fame as Supergirl does Superman's. Through this, she and Kara come to an understanding and an unlikely friendship.

    Bizarro 

A backwards copy of Superman.


  • The Ghost: Doesn't appear, but is mentioned throughout "#TheGoodTheBadAndTheBizarre"; Superman defeated him some time ago and Bizarro Supergirl's whole motivation is trying to be a bigger villain than Bizarro.

    Cavalier (Mortimer Drake) 
Voiced By: Griffin Puatu
An actor who will steal the spotlight, whatever it takes. He has a villainous, swashbuckling alter ego artistically named Cavalier.
  • Awesome Anachronistic Apparel: This is Cavalier we're taking about. His costume is right out of The Three Musketeers.
  • Foil: He's everything Oliver would be without a conscience, and a sword in place of a bow.
  • Not So Different: He and Queen are both aspiring actors and big hams, and form a bond over their mutual dislike of Zee Zatara.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Cavalier is set up as Green Arrow's arch-rival, when the character was created as a Batman foe.
  • Trauma Button: He was laughed off the stage in primary school, and now the sound of heckling incapacitates him.

    Deathstroke (Slade Wilson) 
Voiced By: D.C. Douglas
One of the world's deadliest assassin and mercenary.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Unlike most of his incarnations, Slade isn't an Abusive Parent and genuinely loves Rose.
  • Composite Character: Slade's care for his daughter and desire to be a good father to her may be lifted from DC's second most notorious hitman, Deadshot.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Vicious killer and all-around jerk? Yes, but he loves his daughter Rose with all his heart.
  • From Camouflage to Criminal: Babs deduces Slade has a military background from a display case full of medals in his bathroom, which sticks to his backstory from the comics.
  • Jerkass: Kinda comes with being an assassin, but even when he’s off the clock, he comes across as haughty, condescending, and quick to anger when Babs visits his house.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: He lives in a luxurious, spotless mansion, dresses in immaculate suits, and enjoys haute cuisine as everyday dinner.
  • Obviously Evil: Even before she learns that Mr. Wilson is an assassin, Barbara cannot help but feel that something is just wrong with him.
  • Professional Killer: He's in the business of assassinating for the paycheques and thrill of the chase. He outright tells Batgirl going after James Gordon is Nothing Personal, just a job he's being paid handsomely for.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Slade takes great pride in his skills as a chef.
  • Silver Fox: Quite handsome in spite of white hair and the eyepatch.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: He is a coldblooded professional with no trace of fun, humor or silliness whatsoever. When Deathstroke is after someone, he comes with the intent to kill. The threat he poses grows tenfold when Barbara learns that his current target is her own father.

    Casey Krinsky 
Voiced By: Lara Jill Miller

A very shy girl who desperately craves attention. She also turns out to be a power and identity snatcher.


  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Changed from a kind of elemental shapeshifter who can leech the properties of whatever or whoever she touches into a Power Parasite that can steal appearances and powers at close range.
  • Accidental Misnaming: No one seems to be able to remember her name.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She pretended that she just wanted to be Zee's friend so she could learn the details of her social life to steal her identity.
  • Cassandra Truth: She's the only villain thus far who knows about the Super Hero Girls' identities; she shouts them in the hallways, but thanks to her low social status and the things Zee said while in her body, nobody believes her.
  • Drunk with Power: Once Casey learns the alter egos of Zee and her friends, she doesn't hesitate to steal all their powers for herself.
  • Eyes Are Mental: Her green eyes stay the same no matter what shape she wears.
  • Fat Bitch: A mild example. She's a little chubby and eventually revealed to be a villain.
  • Freudian Excuse: Being a nobody ignored by all left her with no self-esteem.
  • I Just Want to Be You: When Casey decides being Zee's friend is not enough, she uses her powers to switch identities with her.
  • Power Parasite: Her powers allow her to not only steal the identity of the target, but also their powers.
  • Redemption Rejection: Zee tries to have a fresh restart with her, only for her to reject it, swearing vengeance on her and her friends one day.
  • Shrinking Violet: Until her true nature is revealed, she is very shy, especially upon meeting Zee.
  • Voices Are Not Mental: When she takes someone's powers or appearance, the voices come with. This resulted in a Voice of the Legion when she took all the team's powers at once.

     Killer Moth 

A monstrous moth creature who spawns legions of children to wreak havoc on Metropolis.


Invinci-bros

    Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) 
Voiced By: Jason Spisak

A student at Metropolis High School and star of the football team. Like Jessica, he has been chosen to defend the Earth as a Green Lantern.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: He's more self-absorbed and vain than most other versions of Hal.
  • 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.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Gender inverted. In "#ScrambledEggs", Hal appears to be attracted to Selina Kyle, even more so when she smashes the egg they were assigned to take care of after one too many comments from him, and storms off.
  • Big "NO!": At the end of "#AsteroidBelter", he gives one when his beloved hot dog cart is destroyed by an asteroid fragment. When Jessica tells him that a salad bar is still open, this is coupled with a Skyward Scream.
  • Composite Character: As Jessica Cruz's contemporary who's far more headstrong than she is, he's more similar to Simon Baz than the comics Hal Jordan. He also has Guy Gardner's like of sports and self-absorbedness.
  • Dumb Jock: Zig-zagged; shows varying levels of both competence and cluelessness, and then it's revealed that he can't spell his own last name right.
  • Embarrassing First Name: He doesn't like his real name, Harold, and prefers "Hal".
  • Jerk Jock: Downplayed; Hal is a football star, and fairly affable, but only if you can get past his incredible ego.
  • Narcissist: Hal personally believes he's the best looking guy at Metropolis High. Under the Lasso of Truth's grip, he admits that's a lie. He thinks he's "the best-looking person in school, guy or girl...best looking guy in all of Metropolis...in the whole tri-state area".
  • Platonic Life-Partners: He's Vitriolic Best Buds with Jessica, but any romantic tension between them is purely in Carol's imagination.
  • Psychosomatic Superpower Outage: When Carol got in the picture, Hal began to cower in fear so much his ring begins to crap out.
  • Secret Keeper: He knows Jessica Cruz is a Green Lantern and Carol Ferris is Star Sapphire.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He thinks himself the greatest heroes in town, but among the upper echelon of heroes like Superman, he's merely The Friend Nobody Likes.
  • Smart Ball: Despite his general incompetence he's smart enough to send Steve Trevor out for donuts when the team needs a lucid Diana to come up with a plan.
  • Transformation Trinket: Like his fellow Green Lantern Jessica, he uses his ring to transform.
  • 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).
    • But catch him on a Sunday morning just after waking up (like in "#ScrambledEggs") will do the trick.

  • 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.
  • The Bartender: A G-rated version, even telling Babs she's had enough.
  • 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.
  • Motor Mouth: He talks as fast as he runs.
  • 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.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Unless things get serious, Barry will always have a wide, happy smile on his face.
  • Smart People Play Chess: Plays both sides of a chess game in seconds, ending in a checkmate.
  • Super-Speed Reading: Can go through dozens of books in seconds, as seen in "#Booked".
  • Worf Had the Flu: He goes to get his bosses' lawyer rather than help the girls fight the robots.

    Aqualad (Garth Bernstein) 
Voiced By: Jessica McKenna

A student at Metropolis High School and the football team's water boy. He uses his (sometimes) powerful hydrokinesis to fight evil as Aqualad.


    Green Arrow (Oliver Queen) 
Voiced By: Eddie Perino

A student at Metropolis High from a wealthy family with dreams of becoming a stage actor. He fights crime in style as the Invincibros' master archer, Green Arrow.


  • Badass Beard: Oliver sports the classic Green Arrow goatee, and the "Badass" comes from his archery skills.
  • Cultured Badass: The emerald archer likes referencing Shakespeare.
  • Mr. Vice Guy: Oliver is very selfish and regularly blinded by his own ego, but he'll do the right thing when it counts.
  • The Prima Donna: Let's just say Oliver thinks he's in a league above high school productions.
  • Shameless Self-Promoter: Exactly as much as Zee, to the point that both of them forget to put on their scheduled performances because they're so busy sabotaging each other's advertisements.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: He returns this sentiment with Zee. "#DramaQueen" revealed another one for him: Mortimer Drake.
  • Stealth Pun: As stated above, he can be a huge Drama Queen.
  • Trick Arrow: He wouldn't be Green Arrow without them. Even the legendary boxing glove arrowhead makes an appearance!
  • Too Much Alike: He and Zee are Sitcom Arch-Nemeses because they're both Spoiled Sweet Attention Whores.
  • Unknown Rival: Zee doesn't initially recognize him when they first meet in costume.
  • Waistcoat of Style: To accentuate his high-class background.

    Hawkman (Carter Hall) 
Voiced By: Phil LaMarr

A student at Metropolis High known for his intimidating demeanor. As Hawkman, he intimidates criminals with his giant wings and Nth metal mace.


  • Ambiguously Brown: He has an olive skin tone, similar to Diana's.
  • Anti-Magic: Hawkman's mace appears to retain Nth metal's magic disrupting properties since he uses it to parry Zatanna's magic blasts.
  • The Big Guy: The Super Hero Boys' heaviest hitter.
  • Blinding Bangs: In his civvies, Carter's Messy Hair covers his eyes, and Hawkman's helmet is a Irisless Eye Mask of Mystery.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Hawkman wields his signature mace made from Nth metal.
  • Foil: To Supergirl. Both are the muscle of their respective teams, but Supergirl is loud and quick-tempered while Hawkman is quiet and reserved.
  • Gentle Giant: Hawkman may be brutal in battle, but Carter is very sweet in private.
  • The Quiet One: Rarely makes a sound other than a grunt. In his debut two-parter, he says (disregarding his team's Battlecry) a total of two words.

    Steve Trevor 
Voiced By: Yuri Lowenthal

A cadet from the local military academy whom Diana is attracted to. He becomes a "leader" of sorts for the Invincibros.


  • Amazon Chaser: Par the course for Steve. He meets a tall, buff girl who can lift him like a loaf of bread (and is an actual Amazon on top of all that), and his response is to ask her for a date.
  • Bad "Bad Acting": When he takes over as Romeo he reads his lines woodenly right off the script.
  • Commuting on a Bus: Barbara made sure he made it into the military academy so he wouldn't be a distraction to Diana. He still ends up showing up afterward as leader of the Invinci-Bros.
  • Fantastically Indifferent: For a regular joe, he's completely unfazed by his friends' double lives.
  • The Generic Guy: He has very little personality or defining traits outside of being a generally Nice Guy. This is lampshaded when Babs struggles to find something to say about him during his character promo.
  • Hair of Gold, Heart of Gold: Blond, and very much a Nice Guy whom Diana is hopelessly smitten with.
  • Nice Guy: Polite, cheerful and friendly to a fault, with seemingly not a mean bone in his body.
  • Oblivious to Love: While Steve is also attracted to Diana at first sight, he's completely oblivious of the effect he has on her every day.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: Trevor's rather ordinary among most of the men in the show in looks, popularity, and talent. None of the Super Hero Girls could figure out what makes him stand out so much to Diana, barring the fact he was the first boy she ever saw.
  • Satellite Love Interest: That he has little going on besides being the nice guy Diana's crushing on is played extensively for humour.
  • Secret Public Identity: Though not a superhero himself, Trevor leads a team of them, and doesn't bother with any kind of disguise or alter ego.
  • Simple-Minded Wisdom: He's taken for a brilliant strategist by the Super Hero Boys just by recognizing the obvious without overthinking. It's why they made him their leader.
  • Team Dad: He's not much of a team leader, but he is quite emotionally supportive.
  • The Team Normal: He lacks any powers or special equipment his teammates have.

Other Characters

    James Gordon 
Voiced By: Fred Tatasciore

The former commissioner of the Gotham Police Department, now commissioner of Metropolis... and Barbara's dad.


  • By-the-Book Cop: He has his moments of incompetence in the field, but Gordon is portrayed as a strict abider to the law.
  • Donut Mess with a Cop: Sometimes seen with one or a box of donuts to munch on the job.
  • Doting Parent: He acts this way around her daughter out of general love. Hilariously, he does this to Barbara even when she's Batgirl, without realizing they're one and the same.
  • Not So Above It All: Like Batgirl, he also calls Robin a twerp out loud. And they agree not to tell Batman that Poison Ivy escaped under both their noses, rather than face criticism and embarrassment.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He has no problem wearing a pink apron while whipping up some popcorn on a daddy-daughter movie night. He also doesn't mind watching Princess Pumpkin Pants, a primarily sweet girl-targeted show, with Barbara. He co-opted it into his nickname for her.

     Mr. Chapin 
Voiced By: Fred Tatasciore

Perpetually dour Metropolis High teacher who the Girls interact off of the most often.


  • Expy: Serves the same function on this series as Steven Barkin did on Kim Possible, and has a similar personality.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Zee's magic once accidentally made his pants disappear, revealing that he wears boxers decorated with Batman logos.

     Queen Hippolyta 
Voiced By: Cree Summer

Queen of the Amazons, and Diana's mother.


  • Action Mom: Being an Amazon makes this a given, though all the others are doing much of the action for her during the episode.
  • Final Boss: Barbara timidly comments that the Queen looks like one. (The episode's actual one turns up soon after.)
  • My Beloved Smother: Diana resorted to running away to find her destiny, so her mother then tried to drag her back home "...for the grounding of your immortal life!"

    Eliza and Jeremiah 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 Kara for picture day is any indication, they certainly were.
  • Foil: To their rocker foster child.

    Kilowog 
Voiced By: Jason Spisak

Jessica and Hal's trainer in the Green Lantern Corps.


    Lois Lane 
Voiced By: Grey DeLisle

A student at Metropolis High School who is head of the school newspaper, The Daily Planetoid, and anchor of the school's TV news program.


  • Crush Blush: In "#SuperWho", she's shown blushing quite a bit when Superman notices her.
  • Da Editor: Of the Daily Planetoid, with the "Noo Yawk" accent and 40's jargon to match.
  • Expy: Lois is channelling Katharine Hepburn in her reporter roles, like "Woman of the Year".
  • Going for the Big Scoop: It just wouldn't be Lois Lane if she weren't a dauntless reporter. She hopes to build a big name for herself, with which she will get an internship at the Daily Planet.
  • Intrepid Reporter: Wouldn't be Lois if she wasn't this, though its not until "#BreakingNews" that we get to see how good of an investigator she is.
  • 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.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: In "#BreakingNews" she finds out who the Super Hero Girls are pretty easily, but ultimately decides it isn't right to reveal their identities for personal gain. The girls think she just never found out and gave up.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Keeping up what has become traditional in animation and the comics for over two decades now, Lois has violet eyes though she's a normal human.

    Jimmy Olsen 
Voiced By: Nobody

A student at Metropolis High School who works in the school newspaper department. Tends to hang around Lois Lane when reporting.


  • Butt-Monkey: His attempts to get photos of the girls in action backfire in every possible way.
  • Camera Fiend: On the field, he's usually the guy handling the camerawork for anything.
  • Cute Mute: Has no lines, and utterly Adorkable.
  • Going for the Big Scoop: Comes with the territory when Lois Lane drags you to dangerous incidents in progress just for a picture of Superman.
  • Number Two: His job at the Daily Planetoid appears to largely be "Lois's lackey".

    Superman (Clark Kent) 
Voiced By: Max Mittelman

The last son of Krypton and Kara's cousin. Unlike her, he is already a recognized and beloved superhero.


  • 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.
  • Pet the Dog: In "#PowerSurge" he plays along with Kara's new "Power Girl" identity and improvised alternate-universe origin.
  • 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.

    Batman (Bruce Wayne) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unknown_2_2.png
Voiced By: Keith Ferguson

The Dark Knight of Gotham City. His actions unknowingly inspire Barbara Gordon to become Batgirl ever since she was a kid.


  • Age Lift: He isn't a teenager, but is still more youthful than most versions of Batman (outside of origin stories).
  • Celebrity Masquerade: As part of his billionaire-playboy shtick here, "#SoulSisters" reveals that Wayne plays himself (with Alfred his co-star) on a Reality TV show called Make It Wayne. The show seems an acquired taste; it makes Jim Gordon fall asleep, Barbara will not admit to liking it, and Pamela Isley and Harleen Quinzel both seem to really hate it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Par for the course with most Batman interpretations, and the little we've seen of this one is no different. Barbara picks up on his good nature despite never formally meeting the guy.
  • Mythology Gag: Bruce's Rich Idiot with No Day Job characterization is true to how he has occassionally portrayed himself in the comics as a persona. Here, it's played completely straight.
  • Pretty Boy: As Bruce Wayne.
  • Rich Idiot with No Day Job: Taken to extreme, as he seems to spend every second of his time as Bruce Wayne basking in the glow of celebrity as a rich reality TV star.
  • The Smart Guy: He isn't fooled by Barbara's impersonation of her father and calls him again after she leaves.
  • The Unintelligible: His early appearances either have him as a silent person or speaking through a garbled voice over Gordon's Bat Phone. We hear him talk properly on TV as Bruce Wayne later.

    Robin (Dick Grayson) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/unknown_1_7.png
Voiced By: Keith Ferguson

The pompous sidekick to Batman.


  • Adaptational Jerkass: Surpasses the Teen Titans Go! Robin for the title of the most unpleasant incarnation of Dick Grayson in any media, seeing that there are (so far) no redeeming qualities from this version.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Dick Grayson as Robin, in most incarnations, can be a bit cheeky and rough around the edges, but he's generally a good-hearted kid who becomes one of the most well-connected superheroes of the DCU. This Dick Grayson, however, is such an obnoxious bullying little twerp that it's a wonder Batman puts up with him to begin with.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: The Tall, Dark, and Handsome Chick Magnet of the comics he is not; he's very cartoonish in this version, with huge buck teeth and a generally goofy, wimpy look.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Rather than a very competent crime fighter, Robin is Boisterous Weakling who's shown no actual qualification to be a sidekick. Harley Quinn is able to casually mug him, and would have easily killed him before he even noticed she was trying without Batgirl's intervention.
  • Age Lift: Most other incarnations of Dick Grayson usually don't have a particularly large age gap between themselves and Batgirl (small enough for them to get together in some continuities). This version is a child while Batgirl is a teenager.
  • Bitchin Sheeps Clothing: On Make It Wayne, he acts as a polite soft-spoken young lad, quite the opposite of his costumed self
  • Composite Character: Sort-of. Has some characteristics from both Jason Todd (post-Crisis) and Damian Wayne. (Their negative personality traits.) According to Lauren Faust, however, this Robin is Dick Grayson.
  • A Dick in Name: Confirmed to be Dick Grayson in "#TweenTitans". A "dick" is exactly the way he behaves and treats others.
    Lauren Faust: How could any one make a character like that and not use their chance to call him Dick.
  • Dirty Coward: Hides under a table when Harley's bomb lands in his hands.
  • Fake Ultimate Hero: For a superhero who has a reputation and a fanbase, Robin hasn't been seen doing anything that would warrant him being called a superhero, let alone a particularly good one. Nor does he try beyond putting down others, mostly Barbara, and bragging. A viewer may question if he's Batman's sidekick for any reason but being his adopted son.
  • Hate Sink: This Robin has no redeeming qualities whatsoever, having humiliated Barbara twice in her life, cowers when faced with real danger, and talks down to every person he meets.
  • Jerkass: He was unnecessarily rude and mocking towards a young Barbara trying to be a Kid Hero, and wasn't from a place of concern for being over her head. He's shown to be even worse later, beckoning an entire room to laugh at her cruelly, possibly remembering her, for attempting to ask an in-depth question about Batman's detective process. He's rude to everyone in general, including those who shower him with the attention he demands. Harley Quinn comes out looking like a more sympathetic person than he does, and she was trying to murder him because of how obnoxious and mean he was towards Barbara.
  • Kid Hero: We last see him in this role in the "#FromBatToWorse" flashback.
  • Loves My Alter Ego: While Barbara Gordon can't stand Robin, she thinks Dick is such a sweetheart (from what she's seen on "Make it Wayne").
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He arrogantly believes himself to be a better sidekick for Batman, one who won't "cramp his style". That being said, even Commissioner Gordon doesn't find him very tolerable at the role. He also carries himself as a huge celebrity who people should always be excited and honored to see.
  • Smug Snake: Supremely arrogant and bullying, but folds like a tissue in the face of any actual danger.
  • Straw Loser: Barbara may be an overeager Ditzy Genius, but she couldn't look more qualified to be Batman's sidekick when compared to the guy who has the position now.

    The Tween Titans 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/screen_shot_2020_05_04_at_21107_pm.png
Voiced By: Grey Griffin (Starfire), Phil La Marr (Cyborg), Tara Strong (Raven), Kari Wahlgren (Beast Boy)

Robin's group of friends.


  • Adaptational Dye Job: Both Beast Boy and Starfire have normal human skin and hair colors at first, but change back to their traditional ones when in costume.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: All four of them have been turned into rambunctious, trouble-making little goblins as opposed to their previous animated incarnations. Instead they're much closer to their Teen Titans Go! counterparts.
  • Adaptation Name Change: From the Teen Titans or just Titans to Tween Titans, representing their new ages.
  • Age Lift: Since Robin is still a preteen in this show, so are all of the Titans.
  • Creepy Child: Raven. She keeps spontaneously appearing behind Jess and Karen to exposit about her unsettling childhood in "the dark realm".
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Appeared in one of the Graphic Novels, Powerless, before appearing in the show proper.
  • Reused Character Design: Raven looks mostly the same as her Teen Titans GO counterpart, in contrast to the other Tweens.note 
  • Sweet Tooth: Taken Up to Eleven with Starfire. Alfred instructs Jess and Karen not to give her any sugar, and they find out why when she eats her way through a five-layer cake and releases a massive energy explosion.

    Ace the Bat-Hound 

Commissioner Gordon's former police dog, now Barbara's pet.


  • The Ace: This is a dog that can perform parkour, deliver babies, and use batarangs.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: He's now a few varying shades of brown rather than gray or black. Subverted since some versions of Ace in the comics are like this.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: He's Barbara's companion instead of Batman's. Since she's unaffiliated with Batman, that means neither is Ace.
  • Not So Above It All: When another dog is declared the "Best in Show" instead of him and Krypto, both express astonishment, then shrug and move on. Later he also can't resist joining Krypto in chasing a cat.
  • The Stoic: In contrast to Krypto and, of course, Barbara.

    Krypto 

Kara's super-powered dog.

    Katana (Tatsu Yamashiro) 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/katana_rooftop_moon_sword_downward_s01e25.jpg
"I am Katana! My mission is to find villains and punish them for their evil deeds! That is what a hero does."
Click here to see her civilian identity 
Voiced by: Rina Hoshino

A young woman from Japan who turns out to be a vigilante with a magic sword known as Soultaker.


  • Adaptational Heroism: Unlike her comic incarnation, this Katana overcomes her Pay Evil unto Evil ideology.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Subverted. She's antagonistic in her first appearance, but it's because she's a Knight Templar type of superhero. She improves by the end of "#SoulSisters" thanks to her friendship with Diana and seeing her ways aren't perfect, after nearly using Soultaker on an innocent man.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: As of her debut, Katana still wields the Soultaker, but as a hero rather than a vigilante.
  • Birds of a Feather: She and Diana are both exceptionally trained warriors with strong senses of honor and justice who recently moved to Metropolis from foreign locales.
  • The Comically Serious: Watch as she tries to fight Harley Quinn with a balloon sword.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Does this after seeing Diana protect someone from losing his soul, causing her to later release Diana's soul and the others within Soultaker.
  • Kimono Is Traditional: She wears a red kimono and dark grey hakama pants when she frees all the souls she captured in Soultaker.
  • Knight Templar: She insists her method of "justice" is better than Diana's because it stops criminals from ever repeating offenses. Diana won't have it, warning her being Judge, Jury, and Executioner makes Katana no better than those she punishes.
  • Lady of War: Katana is as graceful as she is deadly, which is saying something.
  • Master Swordsman: Tatsu possesses great swordfighting skills.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • "Tatsu" is an archaic Japanese word for dragon. Like a dragon, Tatsu is powerful, swift and wise.
    • It also sounds like the verb tatsu meaning "to sever".
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Her reaction when Diana's soul is taken by Soultaker to prevent a car thief from losing his soul—and he turns out to be an innocent just locked out of his own car. In grief over someone as pure as Diana suffering like that, and from her nearly hurting an innocent man due to her own blind extremism, Tatsu says the incantation that releases the souls that Soultaker stole from the sword.
  • Mysterious Past: The only information Tatsu gives is that she can never go back to her homeland. Her backstory from the comics would clash too much with this series, so what drove Tatsu to become Katana will probably be an original element.
  • No Sense of Humor: Very intense and takes everything so seriously.
  • Not Even Bothering with the Accent: Averted. While less noticeable at times, her English is accented enough to infer Japanese is her first language, even if she is fluent in the former.
  • One-Hit KO: Soultaker only needs to hit an opponent with an energy strike made by slashing the air to steal their soul, leaving the body in a catatonic state.
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: Before Diana befriended her, Tatsu's whole life revolved around fighting evil and training to get better at fighting evil. Even the principles of "friendly" competition confused her.
  • Southpaw: Informs Diana of her left-handedness during their first spar.
  • Your Soul Is Mine: Soultaker's power. Tatsu can also release the souls by using an ancient spell, but she can't release individual/particular souls, only all at once.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Her methods of doing so are questionable, but the reason she used the Soutaker was because with the souls stuck in her sword, no one would have to worry about villains constantly coming back again and again.
  • With Us or Against Us: Why she takes the souls of the Super Hero Girls along with the villains'.

    Zatara 
Voiced By: Phil La Marr

Zee/Zatanna's father, a stage magician.


  • Adaptational Wimp: Subverted. While not a superhero, he's still basically a wizard.
  • Good Parents: He's a great father to his daughter. He even pretended to not have powers just in case she never developed them.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: He's a stage magician with magical powers. Subverted since his acts, especially when he was hiding his powers from Zee, used typical tricks that didn't rely on real magic.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's also associated with the color purple.
  • Rags to Riches: Zatara built his magician career from the ground up, starting as a traveling showman living in an RV. Now, he's the headliner for a ritzy casino.
  • Technicolor Eyes: Unlike Zee's neon purple, Zatara's are a soft violet.

    Rose Wilson 
Voiced By: Chelsea Kane

The daughter of Slade Wilson who makes friends to Babs.


  • Abled in the Adaptation Unlike most incarnations, Rose hasn't lost her left eye.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Most versions of her have Rose at least start out as a villain in support of Slade. Here, while she loves him, she is openly against his villainy and is very friendly to Barbara.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: She has a bit of a punk look, and is a sweet, polite girl.
  • Implausible Hair Color: Rose's hair is pure white. According to a baby picture, unlike Slade's, she was born with the color.
  • Morality Chain: If it means Rose will think better of him, Slade will curb his violent tendencies.
  • Secret Keeper: She sees that Barbara is Batgirl and tells her she'll keep it a secret.

    Antiope 
Voiced By: April Winchell

Sister of Queen Hippolyta, and Diana's aunt.
