He is an awkward assistant crime-scene investigator (CSI) for the Central City Police Department (CCPD) who moonlights as the Flash.

Joe West becomes Barry's adopted father, and 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. Lab's particle accelerator.
Further information: Savitar (comics)
Gustin also portrays Savitar (voiced by Tobin Bell in his exosuit and Andre Tricoteux in the character's initial portrayal; recurring: season 3; guest: season 5), a temporal duplicate of Barry from a possible future created due to a bootstrap paradox and the main antagonist of season three.
Main article: Iris West-Allen (Arrowverse)

Eddie Thawne (portrayed by Rick Cosnett; main: season 1; recurring: season 8; guest: seasons 2–3) is a CCPD detective who transferred from Keystone City who is initially romantically involved with Iris.
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. His name is referred on Earth-2 from a list of contacts on a phone at Barry's and Iris's home, implying his Earth-2 doppelgänger's existence.
Further information: Vibe (comics)
Francisco Baracus "Cisco" Ramon (portrayed by Carlos Valdes; seasons 1–7) is a mechanical engineering genius who works at S.T.A.R. Labs, also known by the superhero codename Vibe and later Mecha-Vibe. He develops a romantic relationship with Gypsy and later Kamilla Hwang. He is based on the DC Comics character of the same name.

Martin; main: seasons 1–8; recurring: season 9) is a CCPD detective, father of Iris, Wally and Jenna West, and legal guardian to Barry Allen following Nora Allen's death and Henry Allen's incarceration.

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. 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.

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.
Kendrick Sampson, Sugar Lyn Beard, Miranda MacDougall, Arturo Del Puerto, and Hartley Sawyer portray DeVoe in different host bodies.

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.

Further information: Hunter Zolomon
Hunter Zolomon / Zoom (portrayed by Teddy Sears, initially portrayed by Ryan Handley, voiced by Tony Todd; seasons 2-3 & 5) is a speedster from Earth-2 who is obsessed with becoming 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 powers from the particle-accelerator explosion on Earth-2. Dissatisfied, he sought to increase his speed with the Velocity serum but soon discovered it carried a fatal illness. Searching for a cure, he traveled the multiverse and captured Jay Garrick. Unsuccessful in stealing Jay's speed to cure himself, Hunter keeps Jay imprisoned with a speed-dampening mask. 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 and then steal it, sending various metahumans from Earth-2 to fight the Flash while also infiltrating the team as Jay. Zoom extorts Harry Wells into physically stealing Barry's speed by kidnapping Jesse Wells. He also becomes Caitlin Snow's love interest. 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 Eobard killed Nora, convinced that they are similar because of their childhood traumas. However, Barry ultimately bests Hunter 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 in season three, such as to hurt Savitar before being killed by Earth-1 Killer Frost.

Hunter Zolomon held Jay captive in a failed attempt to harness his speed before becoming inspired to take up his persona and falsely operate as the Flash of Earth-2; even going so far as to use Jay's name. To keep him from escaping, Zolomon forced Jay to wear a mask that suppressed his speed and prevented him from talking. After Zoom's defeat, Barry rescues Jay, who soon returns to his Earth. 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. Jay later learned from Harry Wells that Henry Allen is his doppelgänger and Barry is Henry's son. Knowing this, Jay watches over Barry as a sympathetic yet stern mentor, and a friendship develops. After undoing 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.

In season seven 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 the Godspeed Drones in Central City, he ends up taken captive by them to draw Bart out. It is revealed that the future of 2040 Jay Garrick helps mentor Bart Allen, and he gets killed by Godspeed, which makes Bart swear revenge to kill Godspeed/August Heart, not realizing that the real August Heart is comatose and that the people who killed Jay were actually Godspeed drones. Flash and Nora were able to rescue Jay and Bart with help from Mecha-Vibe. Jay later helped out in fighting the Godspeed Drones. Following Godspeed's defeat and Eobard Thawne getting away, Jay and Joan were present when Barry and Iris renew their vows.
In season eight, Jay's death in 2040 was erased upon Godspeed's death. Unfortunately, an event has erased Joan as Jay is married to a woman named Rose causing Nora and Bart to find the time anomaly responsible on December 31, 2013. After Nora and Bart fixed the timeline, Jay's marriage to Joan is restored as Jay mentions to Bart and Nora 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. Jay and Joan from 2040 help Joe find Iris in the time stone that Darhk gave Joe.
