Top 10 Characters in the Arrowverse

Best characters from the shared universe of the TV shows Arrow, The Flash, Constantine, DC's Legends of Tomorrow and Vixen (web series).

The Top Ten

1 Oliver Queen/Green Arrow Oliver Queen/Green Arrow

I feel like he is the most clever superhero in the arrowverse. He doesn't need superpowers like the flash and definitely not like supergirl

Definitely the best. He has such cool entrances and is so epic when he's hunting and taking out his targets.

He started the Arrowverse. The Flash is too overrated!

He is the Batman of arrowverse. Should be number 1

2 Barry Allen/The Flash Barry Allen/The Flash

Can kill anyone in the arrowverse due to his extreme amounts of abilities the speedforce gives him.

I'm more marvel but The Flash and batman are dc heroes that I like. And barry is so inspiring and awesome, he's number 1 in dc


3 Cisco Ramon/The Vibe Cisco Ramon/The Vibe

He is very cool

The smartest character in the arrow verse so far. His IQ is definitely higher than Felicity's (not by a lot, but definitely). Amazing sense of humor, greatest character development, and powers that is unquestionably powerful. 10/10.

4 Sara Lance/White Canary

Hell yeah favorite character, like girl verision of oliver, made love legends

O hell yes

She can take on the green arrow no problem

She’s the most badass women in the whole arrowverse. #1 in my opinion, but understandable.

5 Kara Danvers/Supergirl

I'm sorry, I prefer Barry and Oliver, but Kara is FAR better than Sara in my opinion, and is definitely the third best character.

Supergirl gives hope. She lifts spirits in such a way I don't find anyone could.

So much better than white canary she deserves at least 3rd

6 Slade Wilson/Deathstroke Slade Wilson/Deathstroke Deathstroke is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. The character was created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez. He is a mercenary and assassin who first appeared in The New Teen Titans #2.

Hands down the best villain

Best Arrowverse villain for sure! - Solarian

7 Harrison Wells Harrison Wells

Very dynamic and funny character

Harrison Wells is the one who helped Cisco, Flash, and Caitlin. Without him, Flash wouldn't know all the cool tricks and gimmicks. He is the backbone of the team, the brain, the power.

8 Prometheus
9 John Diggle John Diggle

Dig should be #2

Should be second only to oliver

10 Julian Albert

Love him

Great character

Love you Tom Felton

One of the best characters


The Contenders

11 Eobard Thawne

Da best villain

Best villian

12 Felicity Smoak Felicity Smoak Felicity Smoak is a DC Comics character. Her first appearance was in The Fury of Firestorm #23, created by writer Gerry Conway and artist Rafael Kayanan.

The best character on both shows

Watching her kick the crap out of the pathetic thug known as Diaz was the greatest two minutes of my life, she made him her bitch. Hot and sexy as hell, I really want to bang her.

13 Caitlin Snow

Fr how is she so low? BADASSS

How the hell is she so low?

14 Leonard Snart/Captain Cold Leonard Snart/Captain Cold

Easily one of the best personality CW has birthed. Leonard's composed, meticulous planning makes him a dangerous foe and easily one of the Flash's biggest rivals. What I love about him is his reserved patience. While it can be cold and unassuming, his nobility and tactical genius makes him a great leader. - Thifer20

EASILY best Legend. - errrr

"Leonard Snart, Robber of ATMs! "


15 Thea Queen

Love watching her kick ass. Willa Holland is my celebrity crush, she's sexy as hell. She's so fit and has the perfect body. Pretty face too. Everybody goes on about Sara, Laurel, Kara etc but Willa as Thea is the best, she's so gosh damn hot.

16 John Constantine John Constantine

John should be high then #9.

17 Malcolm Merlyn Malcolm Merlyn

He is one hell of a villian amazing he should be higher than 27 love him!

18 Firestorm
19 Laurel Lance/Black Canary

It should have been her and oliver

Way better than Sara - Etkneaf

20 Roy Harper/Arsenal

Roy should be in top 3

I love Roy he should be much higher

23 Anatoly Knyazev
