==General impact of the Arrowverse in DC Comics and other media==
 
In ''Green Arrow'' #0 (2012), which is an origin story set five years in the past, Tommy Merlyn is introduced as Oliver's best friend. The character is an original creation of the TV show's writers, while also being partly inspired by the comic book character, Merlyn. His introduction into the mainstream comics came a month after the character's official appearance on the TV show. In that particular issue, during the hostage crisis on a Pacific Ocean oil rig that resulted in Oliver shipwrecking on the island, Tommy is caught in an explosion and is thought to have been killed. In the present day at a monastery on a pacific island, a badly burned Tommy, branded as the "Mystery Patient", awakens from his coma. The character subsequently makes cameo flashback appearances in both ''Green Arrow'' #26 and ''Secret Origins'' #4 (2014).
 
 
In [[w:c:dc:Green Arrow Vol 5 25|''Green Arrow'', vol. 5, #25]] (January, 2014), titled "The Prodigal", which takes place six years in the past, [[Moira Queen]] makes her debut in the New 52. In this issue, the character's history is noticeably revised by writer, Jeff Lemire, to be on par with the most recent version of the character in {{S|A}}, which was the first to feature the character prominently. Elements like, Moira outliving [[Robert Queen|her husband]], running the [[Queen Consolidated|family's company]] and knowing her son's secret life, which were featured for the first time on the show, were added to the comic book canon (prior to the New 52 both Moira and her husband were killed by lions in a safari in Africa when Oliver was just a child). As it was later revealed in [[w:c:dc:Green Arrow Vol 5 28|''Green Arrow'' #28]] (April, 2014), Moira passed away from an illness during Oliver's first years as a vigilante. This is similar to the show, where Moira died during the second year of Oliver being The Arrow, though the cause of her death there was different.
 
 
The drug, "[[Vertigo (Earth-1)|Vertigo]]", that is originated from ''Arrow'' is featured in the out-of-continuity digital series, ''[[w:c:smallville:Titans|Smallville Special: Titans]]'', when Rose Wilson uses it on Mia Dearden a.k.a. [[Speedy]], Green Arrow's protégée, during a battle.
 
 
In ''Green Arrow'' #18, a new character named, Emiko "Emi" Queen, was introduced as the half-sister of Oliver Queen and his eventual partner, Red Arrow. The idea of Oliver having a sibling as a sidekick was introduced a year earlier, when Thea Queen was introduced on ''Arrow'' also as Oliver's half-sister. Moreover, Thea uses the name "Speedy" on the show but the initial alias she wanted to use was "Red Arrow" as well. Even though, the creators of the character might have been inspired by Thea Queen, Emiko is considered to be a separate original character.
 
 
On ''Green Arrow'' #24, John Diggle, an original character created exclusively for the TV show, made his debut in the comics, on the main ''Green Arrow'' title during writer Jeff Lemire's run on the series.<ref>[http://ca.ign.com/articles/2013/10/03/arrow-john-diggle-makes-his-comic-book-debut 'ARROW: JOHN DIGGLE MAKES HIS COMIC BOOK DEBUT - IGN]</ref>
 
 
''“...I have to say, I really liked it, and especially Diggle is the breakout of that show, I think. So I knew if I could bring in some elements, I wanted to bring in Diggle.”'' Lemire said after watching ''Arrow''. ''“...You know, it's a great character, and it serves a real purpose in that mythology. He has a real role. He's someone who grounds Oliver Queen. He's a mentor and a partner and all of these things. So he has a real place within that mythology. I hope, if I'm doing my job well enough, that he'll become indispensable to the comic universe as well.”'' Lemire added. The writer also elaborated on the characters differences and similarities with his TV counterpart: ''“...I wanted the character to be the same character, and just the situations are different. So Diggle's military background and his relationship with his brother and the loss of his brother are two things that really define that character. So I felt like those were two things that I needed to bring into the comic book universe as well. The circumstances around his brother's death are obviously different, but that's something that ties into who he is and what's motivating him in the comic as well.”'' ''“We always wanted Diggle to become...something that could live on beyond the show.”'' Andrew Kreisberg mentioned during his initial discussions with Lemire.
 
 
Executive producer [[Andrew Kreisberg]] and writer [[Ben Sokolowski]] were tapped to take over DC's Green Arrow comic, beginning with issue #35, a six-chaptered storyline titled, "Kingdom":<ref name="Hypable">[http://www.hypable.com/2014/07/05/arrow-andrew-kreisberg-ben-sokolowski-comic/ ''‘Arrow’ writers to pen DC’s ‘Green Arrow’ comic, include Felicity Smoak'' - Hypable]</ref>
 
 
''“We really want to bring the old-school Oliver Queen voice back to the character.”'' Sokolowski said. ''“In other words, the opinionated, liberal Robin Hood-esque hero that has fallen through the cracks a bit, both in the comics and TV models.”'' ''“Some of our favorite Arrow characters will feature prominently in the comic.”'' Sokolowski said. ''“Though they may not necessarily be clones of their TV personas. I think our goal with this comic is to make it an echo of the TV series.”'' As for Oliver Queen, ''“I think the version Ben and I are going for now is an amalgamation of the TV version and his comic book persona.”'' Kreisberg said.
 
 
Kreisberg also noted that he and Sokolowski approached DC about writing the comic: ''“We thought there was a real opportunity here not to do another adaptation of the TV show, but infuse the comic world of Oliver Queen with some of the stronger elements of the show.”'' he said.
 
 
In the epilogue of issue #35, the first issue of the new run, Felicity Smoak made her debut in the New 52 continuity. The character was not the original version, who debuted in ''Firestorm'' #23 (1984), but the revamped version of the comic book character, who debuted in the [[Season 1 (Arrow)|first season of the TV series]] (2012). With the previously introduced John Diggle, Kreisberg and Sokolowski established the new status quo of [[Team Arrow]], using exactly the same characters as on the show. Both Diggle and Smoak were used prominently in that run.
 
 
On issues #36 and #37 (2015), Tommy Merlyn reappeared, with scarred face, for the first time under the alias of the mercenary archer, "Merlyn", in the New 52 continuity. He is employed by John King to retrieve his daughter, Mia Dearden, for him. This brings him at a direct conflict with Green Arrow, whom he later confronts. The two men fight each other, with Tommy being nearly a match for Green Arrow. During their confrontation, Tommy recognizes that his opponent is actually his old friend, Oliver and decides to retreat. Even though Tommy was eventually used as a red herring on the TV show and the character who ended up being the show's version of Merlyn was [[Malcolm Merlyn|his father]], he remained as the mainstream version of the character in the comic books up until before the ''DC Rebirth'' relaunch.
 
 
The main antagonist of the "Kingdom" story arc is a new character named, John King, who displays many similarities with an ''Arrow'' character, Malcolm Merlyn:
 
#Both characters are initially presented as successful businessmen with nefarious secret plans. This is evident especially during Malcolm's appearances in the first season of the show.
 
#They are both the biological fathers of Mia Dearden in their respective continuities; [[Thea Queen|Thea Dearden Queen]] is Arrow's version of that character.
 
#John's last name is also a reference to "Arthur King", the real name of Merlyn in the comics.
 
#King is depicted in the comics with the likeness of actor, [[John Barrowman]], who portrays Malcolm on the show. King's first name could also be a nod to the actor.
 
 
Kreisberg and Sokolowski's run ended with issue #40, which was the conclusion of the "Kingdom" storyline. However, elements from the TV series were removed from the comic book after that issue, including the characters of Diggle and Smoak.
 
 
Felicity Smoak also appeared in the out-of-continuity digital series, ''DC Bombshells'', which takes place in an alternate history version of World War II. There, the character was once again modeled after ''Arrow''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s re-imagined version, while also her Jewish heritage was denoted.
 
 
In ''Black Canary'' (vol. 4) #4 (2015), a character resembling [[Sara Lance|Sara Lance/White Canary]] was introduced, as a blonde martial artist, dressed in a white costume. She presents herself as Rena, Dinah Lance's maternal aunt. She was later revealed to be one half of an ancient martial arts demon named Ravanahatha, who is an enemy of Black Canary.
 
 
In the miniseries, ''Superman: American Alien'', which is an out-of-continuity revisioned take on Superman's origin, Jimmy Olsen is introduced as an African-American character. The character's race was changed for the first time in the {{S|S}} TV series.
 
 
Following ''DC Rebirth'', the ''Supergirl'' comic book series was relaunched with its seventh volume borrowing several elements from the TV series. Writer of the series, Steve Orlando, had this to say about the connection to the TV series:<ref>[http://www.multiversitycomics.com/interviews/steve-orlando-supergirl/ ''Steve Orlando on “Supergirl,” Synergy Between the Show and the Comic, and What Makes Kara So Special'' - Multiversity Comics]</ref>
 
 
''“I think it’s very important to sync up with the show, but also that’s a bit of a trick question, because the show has done so well for the very reason that it truly understands the tone of the best Supergirl comics. So it’s a bit of a circle: hope, positivity, inspiration. These things run through the show, fuel the tone, but they’re right from the comics. Individual details may vary. Characters may vary. But the heart of the show is the heart of the comics, it’s what makes Supergirl unique, and getting that right is our obligation across all mediums.”''
 
 
''“...We’re moving her to National City. We’re connecting her to Cat Grant in a new way. We’re connecting her to her human parents, the Danvers, in a new way. She’s working for the DEO, which is led by Cameron Chase. Kara’s at the DEO to further her main goal and objective—understanding humans.”'' Orlando said regarding the adapted elements from the TV show.<ref>[http://www.dccomics.com/blog/2016/08/11/karas-back-steve-orlando-takes-supergirl-to-new-heights ''Kara's Back: Steve Orlando Takes Supergirl to New Heights'' - DC Comics]</ref>
 
 
In the new comic book series, Kara uses as her civilian identity the name "[[Kara Danvers]]", which originated from the show. Her adoptive parents are also established as Jeremiah and Eliza Danvers and her hometown is National City. Her and the Danvers family's connection to the [[D.E.O.]] is also part of the series, as her parents both work there as agents along with her, though the organization is ran by [[Cameron Chase]] instead of [[Hank Henshaw]]. [[Cat Grant]] and her [[CatCo Worldwide Media|company]], in which Kara becomes an intern, are also included in the series. One major difference from the TV show though is that in the comic book series, Kara is depicted as a sixteen-year old teenager instead of a young adult in her early to mid-twenties. In subsequent stories, the villain, [[Indigo]], also appeared as a member of Fatal Five. The character was first used as an antagonist for Supergirl on the show.
 
 
Some elements from the show, like her civilian name and her adoptive family, were also incorporated in the out-of-continuity limited series, ''Supergirl: Being Super''.
 
 
In 2017, DC comics released a new ''Justice League of America'' series (vol.5), as part of its ''DC Rebirth''. The book's main roster included characters, who have pivotal roles in the several TV shows that are part of "Arrowverse." Excluding Batman and Lobo, the rest of the cast is:
 
#[[Canary|Black Canary]], whose several different versions appear as main characters on {{S|A}}. Though, it's specifically the [[Dinah Drake]] version that appears in the comic book.
 
#[[Ray Palmer|The Atom]], who is a main character on {{S|L}}. However, it's the Ryan Choi version that appears in the comic book.
 
#[[Mari|Vixen]], who is the protagonist of the {{S|V}} animated series, as well as, [[Amaya Jiwe|a version of her]] is a main character on ''DC's Legends of Tomorrow''.
 
#[[Caitlin Snow|Frost]] (formerly known as Killer Frost), who is a main character on {{S|F}}.
 
#[[Ray Terrill|The Ray]], who is the protagonist of the {{S|Freedom Fighters: The Ray}} animated series.
 
 
The relaunch of the ''Green Arrow'' title as part of ''DC Rebirth'', written by Benjamin Percy, brought back to the title some elements from the show.
 
 
[[Green Arrow suit|Green Arrow's costume]] was also redesigned to resemble the one wore by the character on ''Arrow'', specifically the one that was first featured in the [[Season 4 (Arrow)|fourth season]] of the show.
 
 
John Diggle made his reappearance in the second issue of the sixth volume, and became again a major recurring character.
 
 
In the 14th issue of ''Green Arrow'' (vol. 6), Malcolm Merlyn is introduced as the mysterious archer trying to frame Green Arrow for his own crimes. In previous issues, Oliver suspects that the mysterious "arrow killer" is his childhood friend, Tommy Merlyn, whom he previously briefly encountered. However it is revealed that the impostor is Malcolm Merlyn, the original Dark Archer, member of the [[League of Assassins (group)|League of Assassins]] and Tommy's father. In subsequent issues, Oliver's history with the Merlyn family, Malcolm's antagonism with [[Robert Queen]] and his affair with [[Moira Queen]], all elements first featured on ''Arrow'', were also introduced. A long shared history between Malcolm and Diggle was also featured.
 
 
In ''Green Arrow'' (vol. 6) #25, it is revealed that Moira Queen is still alive, having faked her death, and that she once founded with her husband and later led a corrupt organization called, the Ninth Circle. Similarly on the show, Moira was involved with a covert organization called, [[Tempest]].
 
 
The character of Wild Dog also begun to be associated with Green Arrow, in-part because of Wild Dog's appearances on ''Arrow''. The cover of ''Green Arrow: Rebirth'' #1, which came out on June 1, 2016, featured a group of characters, sporting attires similar to that of Wild Dog, though the group was only mentioned in the issue as the "Wild Dog Militia." On October, 2016, a new version of Wild Dog, named [[Rene Ramirez]], was introduced as a new character for the [[Season 5 (Arrow)|fifth season]] of ''Arrow''. In ''Green Arrow'' (vol. 6) #18 (May, 2017), the Wild Dog Militia was officially introduced as enemies of Green Arrow, inspired by Jack Wheeler, the original Wild Dog in the comics. Before the sixth volume of ''Green Arrow'' and the fifth season of ''Arrow'', Wild Dog and Green Arrow only met once, briefly in an alternate continuity, in the ''Infinite Crisis'' storyline.
 
 
After issue #38, the creative team behind the ''Green Arrow'' title was once again changed, with several of the elements from the show being put on the side one more time. However, in ''Green Arrow'' (vol. 6) #45, John Diggle reappears to attend Roy Harper's funeral.
 
 
In ''Wildstorm: Michael Cray'' (December 2017), which takes place in an alternate universe titled, "The Wild Storm", a new psychopathic version of Oliver Queen is introduced. The deranged corrupt billionaire becomes the first target of the Executive Protection Services' assassin, Michael Cray. The first two issues of the series, introduce Oliver's foster sister, Thea Queen and his underlying, Mr. Diggle, is also mentioned. It is implied that Thea doesn't have a good relationship with Oliver. Michael Cray comes into contact with Thea, who runs the Second Chance Center, a center that helps the homeless. Thea then tasers Michael in order to provide him to her brother. Oliver Queen is later assassinated by the assassins of Executive Protection Services, Cray's employers. After Oliver's death, Thea works with Cray's boss, Christine Trelane, to cover up his death as an accident. Trelane makes a deal with Thea to make her head of Queen Industries in exchange of Trelane using the company's technology.
 
 
In ''Teen Titans Special'' (vol. 1) #1 (2018), which features [[Emiko Queen]] as the superhero "Red Arrow", Emiko's maternal great-grandmother is mentioned to be named Kazumi Adachi. During the [[Season 7 (Arrow)|seventh season]] of ''Arrow'', Kazumi is introduced as Emiko's late mother and [[Robert Queen]]'s lover. She was an original character, specifically created for the show. In the comics, Emiko's mother is [[Shado]].

#<div id="anote1"><small>Even though on ''Arrow'', Malcolm is the actual and only adaptation of Merlyn/Dark Archer, in the comics both he and Tommy share that moniker.

#<div id="anote2"><small>Even though on ''Arrow'', Thea is partly based on Mia Dearden a.k.a Speedy, there are a lot of new elements added to her character that are unique to this version and completely different from Mia Dearden.

The comic book version of Thea seems to embrace more of those elements.</small></div>

====Television====
 
*On January 2019, [[Cassandra Savage]], an original character, specifically created for the first season of {{S|DC's Legends of Tomorrow}}, was also introduced in the animated TV series, ''Young Justice''.

In that series, Cassandra is once again, [[Vandal Savage]]'s daughter and one of his top lieutenants, who also joins the [[League of Assassins|League of Shadows]].
 
 
====Video games====
 
*A Green Arrow skin based on ''Arrow''<nowiki>'</nowiki>s Oliver Queen appears in the 2013 video game ''[[wikipedia:Injustice: Gods Among Us|Injustice: Gods Among Us]]''. The playable skin was given as a bonus reward to the first 5000 voters of Injustice's promotional Battle Arena competition, but was later released as a free download. [[Stephen Amell]] also provides the voice-over for that particular skin.
 
*In NYCC 2014, TT Games announced an ''Arrow''-themed DLC pack for the upcoming video game ''LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham'' that featured Stephen Amell voicing both the ''Arrow'' and comic book version of Green Arrow with the former being a separate character instead of a variant.<ref>[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=56265/ ''Green Loontern, Jim Lee, Conan O'Brien and "Arrow" DLC Come to "Lego Batman 3"'' - Comic Book Resources]</ref> Besides Arrow, other playable characters from the show who were included in the game are [[Roy Harper]], the Sara Lance version of Canary, Slade Wilson, John Diggle, Felicity Smoak, [[Helena Bertinelli|Huntress]] and [[Malcolm Merlyn]]. [[Cynthia Addai-Robinson]] also reprised her role in the game when she voiced [[Amanda Waller]]'s comic book counterpart in The Squad DLC level.
 
*''LEGO Dimensions'' featured [[S.T.A.R. Labs (Earth-1)|S.T.A.R. Labs]] as an easter egg that can only be found exclusively in the fifth level of the ''Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them'' story pack. However, the player must have the Tardis from the ''Doctor Who'' level pack in order to access it.<ref>[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1UJ6KX94bM ''LEGO Dimensions CW's The Flash Easter Egg Mini Level (Chapter 5 of Fantastic Beasts) '' - YouTube]</ref>
 
*Another Arrowverse easter egg in ''LEGO Dimensions'' includes the comic book version of Green Arrow making several references when interacting with each character.
 
:*The interaction with The Doctor makes a joke to Captain Jack Harkness because he and Malcolm Merlyn look the same. [[John Barrowman]] previously played Harkness on ''Doctor Who'' and its spin-off ''Torchwood''.
 
:*Felicity Smoak was possibly referenced in the interaction with Shaggy due to her skill being similar to Velma.
 
:*Green Arrow mentions Big Belly Burger in his interaction with Homer Simpson.
 
*''LEGO DC Super-Villains'' released two separate DLC character packs that are based on the DC TV shows. In addition, [[Brandon Routh]], John Barrowman, [[Megalyn Echikunwoke]] and [[David Sobolov]] reprised their roles in the game. But Barrowman, Echikunwoke and Soblov only voiced their respective character's comic book counterpart. The DC TV Heroes pack featured Arrowverse versions of Green Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, [[Ray Palmer|Atom]], [[Curtis Holt|Mister Terrific]] and [[Cisco Ramon|Vibe]]. Green Arrow's TV Heroes variant recycles Arrow's suit from ''LEGO Batman 3'' but with a few tweaks. The DC TV Villains pack had [[Adrian Chase|Prometheus]], [[Hunter Zolomon|Zoom]], [[Vandal Savage]], [[Samantha Arias|Reign]], [[Indigo]] and [[Vincent Sobel|Vigilante]].
 
*In [[DC Universe Online]], a free-to-play multiplayer online role-playing game, a skin based on the ''Supergirl'' television series was provided for a limited time for free-to-play players, though available for purchase for paying members. A skin based on TV series’ version of [[Zoom]] also appears.
 
*The video game ''[[wikipedia:Injustice 2|Injustice 2]]'', a sequel ''[[wikipedia:Injustice: Gods Among Us|Injustice: Gods Among Us]]'', offers several references to the Arrowverse:
 
**If the Flash beats Green Arrow in a battle he sometime says "That´s for breaking [[Felicity Smoak|Felicity’s]] heart".
 
**If Flash fights Supergirl or Green Arrow he sometimes says "Time for a Crossover!"
 
**The game includes a mode where the player can travel the Multiverse and fight on other earths. On one of these earths it is mentioned that [[Captain Cold]] was part of a "[[Legends|time travelling task force]] that included a [[Sara Lance|Canary]]".
 
**The game features a new and unique gear system which allows the player to equip his characters with different gear pieces and create their own costume for the character. A lot of Green Arrow’s gear pieces have names that reference the TV show. For example, he has a bow called "The Bow that took [[Slade Wilson|Slade]]’s eye", a set of arms titled "Salmon Ladder Shoulders" and also a lot of gear pieces that were designed by Felicity Smoak, such as "Felicity’s Hardened Battle Cap" or "Felicity’s Advanced Promethium Combat Armor".
 
**In the mobile version of the game, the TV shows’ White Canary is a playable character identified as "[[w:c:injustice-2-mobile:Multiverse White Canary|Multiverse White Canary]]", along with the Arrowverse versions of [[Oliver Queen]], [[Barry Allen (Earth-1)|Barry Allen]], [[Kara Danvers]],[[Jefferson Pierce]] and [[Leonard Snart]].
