There have been plenty of wonderful fighters in the Arrowverse, but which of the heroes and villains were the best warriors of them all?

Since its inception in 2012, Arrow and the many spin-offs it produced have introduced us to a large number of characters. Across the likes of Arrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, heroes, villains, policemen, criminals, and even ordinary people have all featured over the years. However, if there is one thing superheroes guarantee, it’s trouble — they’ll always find themselves doing battle with a certain evil-doer. So, in light of that, let’s have a look at the 27 best fighters in the Arrowverse.

While some villains were featured only once, there were many who stuck around to battle the heroes again. Usually, the big bads of a season were some of the more ferocious and dangerous fighters. At the same time, being a great fighter doesn’t necessarily mean they’re fantastic with their fists; heroes and villains must use all of the skills at their disposal in a fight.

With all of that in mind, let’s take a look across the various Arrowverse series to identify the 27 greatest fighters to ever grace our screen,

Note: This list won’t feature characters that were on shows that were Arrowverse-adjacent for the majority of their run. Therefore, heroes and villains from Black Lightning, Superman and Lois, and DC’s Stargirl are not included.
