The series is a spin-off from Arrow, and set in the same fictional universe.
The following is a list of characters who have appeared in the series. Many of the characters appearing in the series are based on DC Comics characters.
Bartholomew Henry "Barry" Allen (portrayed by Grant Gustin; seasons 1–9) is the main protagonist of the series. He is an awkward assistant crime-scene investigator (CSI) for the Central City Police Department (CCPD) who moonlights as the Flash. Barry is traumatized as a child when his mother Nora is murdered by the Reverse-Flash and his father Henry is framed for the crime. Barry tries to discover what happened that night. He first appears in Arrow, personally investigating a superhuman-related crime in Starling City. Barry is a fan of the Arrow's exploits and learns Oliver Queen is the vigilante; they become good friends. Sometime after Barry returns to Central City, he is struck in his laboratory by lightning which was affected by dark matter from the explosion of the S.T.A.R. Labs' particle accelerator. Logan Williams portrays Barry as a child (recurring: season 1; guest: season 2).
Savitar (also portrayed by Gustin; recurring: season 3; guest: seasons 5; performed by Andre Tricoteux; recurring: season 3; archive footage: season 5; guest: season 9; and voiced by Tobin Bell in exosuit; recurring: season 3; archive footage: season 5; guest: season 9) is a temporal duplicate of Barry from a possible future who travels back in time and becomes embedded in a bootstrap paradox. He serves as the main antagonist of season three.
Iris Ann West-Allen (portrayed by Candice Patton; seasons 1–9) is a reporter and the daughter of Joe, the wife of Barry, and head of Central City Citizen Media.
Dr. Caitlin Snow (portrayed by Danielle Panabaker; main: seasons 1–8; guest: season 9) is a bioengineer who works at S.T.A.R. Labs, the daughter of scientists Thomas Snow and Carla Tannhauser, and the wife of Ronnie Raymond. She temporarily shares her body with an alter-ego named Killer Frost, and is later temporarily "replaced" with a new personality named Khione.
Killer Frost (also portrayed by Danielle Panabaker; main: seasons 5–8; recurring: seasons 3–4; guest: seasons 2 & 9) is Caitlin's violent metahuman alter-ego who was inadvertently created by Thomas during his experiments to treat Caitlin's ALS gene. In later seasons, she works alongside Team Flash as just "Frost". When hit by Mirror Monarch's mirror gun, she and Caitlin split into two bodies. Frost briefly transforms into Hellfrost and gives her life in the fight against Deathstorm.
Khione (also portrayed by Danielle Panabaker; season 9) is a new personality and a "third Snow sister" in Caitlin's body who emerges from the Consciousness Resurrection Chamber after its malfunction. She initially uses the alias Snow. She has only one biometric signature, making her neither human nor metahuman, and is later described as a goddess. Her powers connect her to the natural world, allowing her to reconstruct organisms, purge unnatural cells, and detect life. At the end of the series, she ascends to become the protector of the natural order and returns her body to Caitlin.
Eddie Thawne (portrayed by Rick Cosnett; main: season 1; recurring: season 9; guest: seasons 2–3 & 8) is a CCPD detective who transferred from Keystone City, a romantic interest for Iris, a colleague of Barry and Joe, and an ancestor of Eobard Thawne. He sacrifices himself to erase Eobard from the timeline. In the ninth season, he is mysteriously resurrected in 2049 as Malcolm Gilmore. After regaining his memories as Eddie, learning that Eobard survived, and realizing that he lost his chance for a family with Iris, he is tempted into becoming Cobalt Blue, a new avatar for the Negative Speed Force. At the end of the series, he agrees to coexist with Barry. His likeness is occasionally adopted by the Speed Force.
Cosnett was originally slated to portray Jay Garrick in the pilot before the character was changed to Eddie Thawne. Many speculated his character to be the Reverse-Flash in disguise due to his last name and appearance.
Francisco Baracus "Cisco" Ramon (portrayed by Carlos Valdes; seasons 1–7) is a mechanical engineering genius who works at S.T.A.R. Labs. Since season two, he operates as the superhero Vibe using metahuman visions and the ability to create breaches to other places. He loses his abilities in season five, but they are temporarily restored during season six for the Crisis. In season seven, he uses technology to mimic his former abilities as Mecha-Vibe and leaves Central City for a job at A.R.G.U.S. with his girlfriend Kamilla Hwang.
Harrison Wells (portrayed by Tom Cavanagh; main: seasons 1–7; guest: season 9) is, on most Earths in the multiverse, the mind and money behind S.T.A.R. Labs in Central City. He is an original character created for the series.
Eobard Thawne (portrayed by Tom Cavanagh in the form of Harrison Wells; main: seasons 1–6; recurring: season 8; guest: seasons 7 & 9; and by Matt Letscher in his original likeness; guest: seasons 1–3 & 8–9) is a time-traveling criminal, a future descendant of Eddie Thawne, and the archenemy of Barry Allen.
Joseph "Joe" West (portrayed by Jesse L. Martin; main: seasons 1–8; recurring: season 9) is a detective for the CCPD, father to Iris, Wally and Jenna, legal guardian of Barry, and boyfriend (later fiancé) of Cecile.
Wallace "Wally" West (portrayed by Keiynan Lonsdale; main: seasons 2–4; guest: seasons 5–6 & 9) is Iris's previously unknown brother and Joe's son, described as "a bit of a wayward kid who has some attitude problems and some authority issues and is quick with a sassy remark". He develops speedster abilities (which originated from the Flashpoint timeline) through Doctor Alchemy and begins assisting Barry as Kid Flash.
Lonsdale also stars as the character on Legends of Tomorrow and originally auditioned to portray Jefferson "Jax" Jackson. He did not return full-time for season five due to wanting to seek other acting opportunities; he later made guest appearances in seasons six and nine. It was always intended for Wally to be the son of Joe and brother of Iris, which differs from the character's comic history, as the producers felt it "weird" for second seasons of television series to introduce previously unmentioned cousins of established characters. The character inspired another character of the same name following DC's New 52 relaunch.
Clifford DeVoe / Thinker (portrayed by Neil Sandilands; season 4) is a mild-mannered professor and metahuman with superhuman intelligence, who seeks to fix all that he deems wrong with humanity. His character was foreshadowed by Abra Kadabra and Savitar as Team Flash's future adversary. He and his wife Marlize create a "Thinking Cap" and exploit the particle accelerator to power it, but its dark matter drains energy from his body and leaves him with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. They build a hover-chair to enhance him, but he develops a god complex and becomes apathetic and emotionless. He orchestrates Barry's release from the Speed Force to create 12 specific metahumans, who he then steals the bodies of in order to gain their powers. He serves as the main antagonist of season four.
Cecile Horton (portrayed by Danielle Nicolet; main: seasons 5–9; recurring: seasons 3–4; guest: season 1) is the Central City district attorney who would occasionally offer Joe legal advice. She and Joe begin dating and eventually get engaged. While pregnant with his daughter Jenna, she becomes a metahuman and develops empathic abilities. Because of this, she begins specializing in metahuman cases. While assisting Team Citizen and serving on Team Flash, she develops telekinesis and later adopts the codename Virtue with a costume inspired by Jenna's drawings. She also has an older daughter named Joanie.
Ralph Dibny (portrayed by Hartley Sawyer; main: seasons 5–6; recurring: season 4) is a private investigator specializing in infidelity cases and metahuman with the ability to stretch his body to superhuman lengths and sizes, also allowing him to morph into other people. He was previously a detective for the CCPD until Barry exposed him for planting evidence. He acquires his powers through exposure to dark matter (which was set up by the Thinker) and stabilizes at S.T.A.R. Labs, where Barry decides to give him a second chance. He becomes an asset to Team Flash known as the Elongated Man. He later develops a partnership with Sue Dearbon.
Nora West-Allen (portrayed by Jessica Parker Kennedy; main: season 5; recurring: seasons 4 & 7–8; guest: season 9) is introduced as a mysterious girl with super-speed. She is first seen at Barry and Iris's wedding and interacts with Team Flash throughout the season. After helping Barry stop the Thinker's satellite, she reveals herself as his and Iris's daughter from 2049. Since she is from the future, certain actions in the present change major parts of her history over the course of the series. Her lightning is initially yellow and purple, referencing both of her parents' lightnings. She is established as a lesbian.
Orlin Dwyer (portrayed by Chris Klein; season 5) is one of the two main antagonists of season five. He gets his abilities after being struck by a fragment of DeVoe's satellite, which also leaves his niece Grace in a coma. Enraged by this and the loss of her mother (his sister) to an earlier metahuman incident, he vows to exterminate all metahumans using a telekinetic dagger that can nullify their abilities, and is dubbed "Cicada" by Team Flash. Secretly, he and Grace are aided by Dr. Ambres.
Monitor (portrayed by LaMonica Garrett; main: season 6; guest: season 5) is a multiversal being who uses the Book of Destiny to test Earths to see if they are capable of facing an upcoming crisis. Notably, he destroys Earth-90 and gives the Book of Destiny to John Deegan to test Earth-1's heroes.
The Anti-Monitor (portrayed by LaMonica Garrett; season 6) is a multiversal being who plots to destroy all the Earths in the multiverse with his anti-matter powers so that only the anti-matter universe remains.
Eva McCulloch (portrayed by Efrat Dor; seasons 6–7) is a quantum engineer, co-founder of McCulloch Technologies, and the wife of Joseph Carver. She has been trapped in the Mirrorverse since the particle acceleration explosion, and begins pulling people in (notably Iris) and creates mirror imposters of those people to aid in her escape so that she may have revenge against Carver for abandoning her. She later discovers that she herself is a mirror duplicate and that the real Eva died during the explosion, and plots to replace everybody with mirror duplicates as Mirror Monarch.
She is based on the DC Comics character Evan McCulloch / Mirror Master and is the main antagonist of the second half of season six and the first three episodes of season seven.
Allegra Garcia (portrayed by Kayla Compton; main: seasons 7–9; recurring: season 6) is a young metahuman with abilities based on the electromagnetic spectrum. As a child, she was incarcerated at Iron Heights for involvement with a gang called the Arañas alongside her cousin Esperanza, with whom she has a strained relationship. She joins Team Flash and Team Citizen after Barry and Cecile prove her innocence in a murder case and bonds with Nash after discovering that the latter was a father figure to her Earth-719 counterpart Maya. After much awkwardness, she dates Chester, who works to make her a superhero costume.
Chester P. Runk (portrayed by Brandon McKnight; main: seasons 7–9; guest: season 6) is a scientist with an online following who believes in keeping his code open-source. He meets Team Flash after accidentally opening a black hole that fuses with his consciousness. After Barry rescues him and Cecile helps him put his life back together, he begins assisting Team Flash as a tech specialist. After much awkwardness, he dates Allegra and makes her a superhero costume. At the end of the series, it is revealed that cosmic energy from the black hole bonded with him and that his genes contain a Consciousness-Honed Universally Neutralized Kerr anomaly, making him a metahuman.
Mark Blaine / Chillblaine (portrayed by Jon Cor; main: season 9; recurring: seasons 7–8) is a former Ivo Laboratories scientist who was fired for creating a microchip that he used to enhance his cryogenic technology. Calling himself Chillblaine, he steals it back and frames Frost for a murder. However, his infatuation and continued run-ins with her prompt him to become a better person, and they begin dating. He falls into a depression when Frost passes fighting Deathstorm and dedicates himself to resurrecting her, and is infuriated when Khione emerges in Caitlin's body and chooses to live her own life. He briefly joins Red Death and the Rogues in exchange for Frost's resurrection, but ultimately rejoins Team Flash and eventually comes to terms with Frost's death.

Labs and Caitlin Snow's fiancé, based on the DC Comics character of the same name who is half of the character Firestorm. He is thought to be dead in the particle accelerator explosion, saving his co-workers' lives. He survived the accident, which merged him with Martin Stein and the F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M. transmutation matrix, transforming the two into one pyrokinetic entity. Though Firestorm is Ronnie's body, it is Stein who remains in control for most of their existence, with Ronnie occasionally taking control for brief moments. They eventually learn to control their shared powers, including an ability to separate themselves at will. Like Caitlin, Cisco and Stein, Ronnie also becomes good friends with Barry Allen; he and Barry ultimately join forces with Oliver Queen to subdue the Reverse-Flash. Ronnie marries Caitlin. Ronnie sacrifices himself to stop the singularity above Central City while separating himself from Stein to keep him alive.

Amell stars as the character on Arrow.
General Wade Eiling (portrayed by Clancy Brown; season 1) is a general with an interest in metahumans, who he wants to use for the U.S. Army, and has a history with S.T.A.R. Labs. Eiling learns of Barry's identity as the Flash, however, Thawne gives the general to Grodd to be placed under the gorilla's control. After being freed by the Flash, he and Barry form a grudging respect despite their enmity.
Martin Stein (portrayed by Victor Garber; seasons 1–4 & 9) is a nuclear physicist focused on transmutation and is half of the character Firestorm. He remains in control of Firestorm during the initial merging, though Ronnie Raymond occasionally takes control for brief moments. The two learn to control their powers and separate at will. After the Reverse-Flash's demise, Stein serves as Team Flash's scientific advisor and encourages Cisco to accept his metahuman powers. After finding that his body is too unstable to fully support the Firestorm matrix, he gains a new partner in Jefferson "Jax" Jackson. After they join the Legends, he discovers that he now has a daughter, Lily, due to both Barry's and his own respective time-traveling actions; he never had a child due to his fear of being as neglectful as his father and his commitment to work in the previous timeline. Stein is killed when the heroes try to escape from Earth-X.
Nora Allen (portrayed by Michelle Harrison; seasons 1–3 & 5 & 7–9) is Barry Allen's mother. Although the Reverse-Flash was actually trying to kill the young Barry during the fight with the Flash's future self, Nora turns into the Reverse-Flash's target after young Barry was taken to safety, and later motivated Barry as the Flash.

Hartley Rathaway / Pied Piper (portrayed by Andy Mientus; seasons 1–2 & 6 & 9) is an embittered genius who used to work at S.T.A.R. Labs. The particle accelerator explosion gave him superhuman hearing, but he needed custom-made hearing aids to help control his new power. He was also estranged from his parents after he came out. Following these, he developed sonic gloves and became a criminal calling himself the "Pied Piper". He is initially Cisco's rival as he was Thawne's former protégé. As a result of timeline changes, Hartley is an ally to Team Flash and reconciled with his parents. In the post-Crisis timeline, Hartley is a metahuman with full sonic powers on top of his gloves but also an enemy to Team Flash since the Flash had destabilized his henchman/boyfriend Roderick Smith's molecules during one of their fights.

Only Barry and later Joe West believe his innocence. He learns that Barry is the Flash and is proud of his son. Henry serves as Barry's moral conscience in being a speedster wisely, thus keeping Barry from being tempted by personal gains. Henry is released from prison due to Thawne's confession to Nora's murder, but leaves Central City to seek a reclusive life as he believes that his presence could hold back Barry's duties as the Flash. He returns to counsel Barry and offer encouragement after his son's disastrous fight with Zoom but then returns to seclusion. When Barry is de-powered, Henry joins S.T.A.R. Labs to help in Barry's fight to save Earth-1 from Zoom. Henry is killed by Zoom in order for Barry to relive the same tragedy with Nora killed by the Reverse-Flash.

With help from the Flash and XS, King Shark defeats Grodd and removes the telepathy crown from him. Grodd is placed in a medically induced coma in a special cell that would adapt to his growing mental powers. Grodd is still an induced coma when Barry is accidentally placed in his mind. While voicing his knowledge of the Crisis, Grodd states that he found out that Gorilla City is now on Earth-Prime and wants to return. Grodd and Barry had to work together. Once that was done, Caitlin arranges for Grodd to be released on probation with a tracking chip in him so that Team Flash will know where to find him if he returns to villainy. However, Grodd found that his tribe of gorillas lost their sentience following the Crisis and are scattered throughout Africa. The Red Death approached Grodd with the offer to boost psychic control over the Red Death's sentinels in exchange for finding his tribe which is how Barry learned about this. After some persuasion from Grodd, the Flash's speed is recharged by Grodd returning the speed sample Barry gave him. Following the Red Death's defeat, S.T.A.R. Labs' satellites are working 24/7 to help find Grodd's tribe.
Jesse Chambers Wells / Jesse Quick (portrayed by Violett Beane; seasons 2–4) is the daughter of Harry Wells from Earth-2. Like her father, Jesse is a science prodigy with five majors in college, including biochemistry. Zoom holds Jesse captive to extort Harry's cooperation until she is rescued by her father, Barry, Cisco, and Earth-2's Barry and Iris.

Jesse and Wally admit their feelings, and have a long-distance relationship until she breaks up with Wally.
Hunter Zolomon / Zoom (portrayed by Teddy Sears, initially portrayed by Ryan Handley, voiced by Tony Todd; seasons 2–3 & 5 & 9) is a speedster from Earth-2 who is obsessed with being the only speedster in the multiverse and the main antagonist of season two. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said, in season one "with the Reverse-Flash, we just modulated Tom Cavanagh's voice, and this year we wanted to do something a little bit different [for Zoom]. Part of the mystery of the season is who or what is underneath the Zoom outfit, and so we wanted to do something like James Earl Jones as Darth Vader — this iconic voice coming out of this mask." Hunter was a traumatized child (portrayed by Octavian Kaul) that witnessed his mother's murder at his father's hands, which triggered his bloodlust as a serial killer before he gained his speedster abilities from the particle-accelerator explosion on Earth-2. Dissatisfied, he sought to increase his speed with the Velocity serums which he soon discovered carried a fatal illness. He also traveled the multiverse and imprisoned Jay Garrick with a speed-dampening mask after he's unsuccessful in stealing Jay's speed to cure himself. Inspired to be both hero and villain, he uses Jay's name as the fraudulent Flash of Earth-2 to instill false hope, which he then takes away as Zoom. Discovering Earth-1, he plots to increase Barry's speed, sending various metahumans from Earth-2 to fight the Flash of Earth-1 while also infiltrating the team as Caitlin Snow's love interest. Zoom extorts Harry Wells into physically stealing Barry's speed by kidnapping Jesse Wells. After succeeding in stealing Barry's speed, Zoom brings his army of Earth-2 metahumans to conquer Earth-1 and construct a device capable of destroying the other Earths in the multiverse, to ensure he remains the only speedster. Hunter seeks to corrupt Caitlin's mind into being like Earth-2 Killer Frost and then Barry's by killing Henry in the same spot the Reverse-Flash killed Nora, convinced that they are similar because of their childhood traumas. However, Barry ultimately bests Zoom in their final fight before two Time Wraiths arrive to punish him for his crimes against the time line; they transform him into the corpse-like Black Flash enslaved to the Speed Force. Subjugated to the Time Wraiths, the Black Flash makes occasional appearances, such as to hurt Savitar before being killed by Earth-1 Killer Frost.
Jay Garrick (portrayed by John Wesley Shipp; seasons 2–4 & 6–9) is the Earth-3 version of Henry Allen. Hunter Zolomon held him captive in a failed attempt to harness his speed before being inspired to take up his name and persona to falsely operate as the Flash of Earth-2. Zoom keeps him from escaping by forcing Jay to wear a mask that suppressed his speed and prevented him from talking. After Zoom's defeat, Jay is rescued by Barry and returns to Earth-3. Jay adopts Hunter's Flash helmet as a symbol of hope, taking satisfaction in taking something from Zoom as the villainous speedster had done to him. After learning that Henry is his Earth-1 doppelgänger and Barry is Henry's son, Jay watches over Barry as a sympathetic yet stern mentor to which a friendship develops. After Barry undoes Flashpoint and trying to fix the mistakes left in its wake, he explains to Barry that time travel can have adverse consequences and that Barry must live with these mistakes. Jay also helps Barry come to terms with Henry's death and in battling Savitar. The two Flashes do initially banish Savitar to the Speed Force, but Savitar manages to escape and Jay takes Savitar's place. After being freed, Jay joins Team Flash in the final battle to defeat Savitar. Jay later returns to help Barry use Flashtime, and reveals that he plans to retire and is training a protégée as his successor as the Flash. Afterwards, Jay has retired and settled down with Joan. Barry does talk to him about the upcoming Crisis that is occurring in the multiverse. Sometime after the Crisis, Jay is now living on Earth-Prime in Keystone City and regains his speed powers with the help of Joan. Before he can join the fight against Godspeed's drones in Central City, he ends up taken captive to draw Impulse out. It is revealed that the future of 2040 has him as the mentor of Bart Allen, and he gets killed by Godspeed. Barry and XS were able to rescue Jay and Bart with help from Mecha-Vibe. Jay later helped out in fighting Godspeed's drones. Following Godspeed's defeat, Jay and Joan were present when Barry and Iris renew their vows. Afterwards, Jay's death in 2040 was erased. Unfortunately, an event has erased Joan as Jay is married to someone else which causes XS and Bart to find the time anomaly responsible on December 31, 2013. After XS and Bart fixed the timeline, Jay's marriage to Joan is restored as Jay mentions to the two about his own time-travel adventures like one where he fought Nazis in World War II. Before departing, he mentions his upcoming meeting with President Lex Luthor which he then mentions that he was kidding about it. Jay and Joan from 2040 help Joe find Iris in the time stone that Darhk gave Joe. He later helps Barry's fight with Thawne.
Patty Spivot (portrayed by Shantel VanSanten; season 2) is Joe West's new protégée and partner, a member of the metahuman task force at CCPD along with Cisco Ramon, and a love interest of Barry Allen. Her father was murdered by Mark Mardon during a bank robbery, leaving Patty determined to stop metahuman criminals. She believes that having superhuman power brings out the best or the worst in people, and acknowledges the Flash's heroism. Her hatred for Mark stems from survivor's guilt; when she was a teenager, she was supposed to make the deposit at the bank where her father died.
