Larfleeze was a DC Comics series, part of its New 52 line-up. Spinning off from Green Lantern, it follows Larfleeze, the singular member of the Orange Lantern Corps, also known as Agent Orange.

For the title character and the rest of the Orange Lantern's character sheet see GL - Orange Lantern Corps.

This series contains examples of:

  • And the Adventure Continues: The series ends with Larfleeze and G'Nort walking off in pursuit of more adventures.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: At the end of his ongoing, he pretty much gets everything he ever wanted: power, wealth, and family. Though it was a choice of him winning or the House of Tuath-Dan, who are arguably worse than he is.
  • Cruel Mercy: Larfleeze spares the gods of the House of Tuath-Dan on the condition that they do not meddle with what is his. Since he considers EVERYTHING to be his property, he has basically consigned these beings obsessed with domination and ownership to an eternity of powerless, impoverished exile. To add insult to injury, he lets the vengeful Sena the Wanderer, the sibling they endlessly bullied and held in contempt, decide where they should be banished.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Larfleeze discovers that the Green Lantern G'nort is his cousin... distantly related by 14 generations thanks to the incredibly long lifespan of Larfleeze's species, but still enough of a connection to bring Larfleeze to tears. While still his egotistical self, he shows G'nort almost unbelievably genuine affection and generosity.
  • Forgot I Could Fly: A good deal of his ongoing consists of him relearning just how powerful he is after years of lazily relying on his Orange Lantern Corps to do his work for him.
  • No Guy Wants to Be Chased: Larfleeze finds the advances of Ardora and Sena the Wanderer to be wholly unwelcome.
  • Pig Man: Larfleeze looks like a cross between that and a dog. This resemblance is noted by several characters in the book.
  • Prophecy Twist: Carol Ferris, Adara the Hope Entity, and the epilogue to Geoff Johns' Green Lantern run claimed that Larfleeze's family was still alive and that he would reunite with them someday. And while this did indeed happen at the end of his series, it's made poignant by the fact that they weren't talking about Lafleeze's immediate family.
  • Spanner in the Works: Larfleeze to the House of Tuath Dan.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Larfleeze takes quite a few in his series, mostly by remembering how to fully utilize his powers.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: It's really hard to tell, but after Larfleeze (maybe) learns his true origins as a traitor to his own people, he takes a few. For one thing, he spares both his rogue Orange Lantern Corps and his enemies from the House of Tuath-Dan despite all the pain and misery they heaped upon him and he pretty much drops his vendetta on Sena the Wanderer despite spending several issues trying to kill her for "stealing" Stargrave from him.
  • This Is a Drill: Larfleeze uses a large power drill construct to try and steal the omnipotent cosmic power of Xum of All Things, complete with a pair of construct safety goggles.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Larfleeze threatens to dropkick Stargrave into the Big Crunch if he keeps on interrupting him.
