Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen. For five years I was stranded on an island with only one goal - survive. Now I will fulfill my father's dying wish - to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else.
  • Oliver Queen has an occasional "tic" described by Stephen Amell as a sort of anxiousness when Oliver wishes he was holding his bow.
  • Liam Neeson had expressed interest in reprising his role of Ra's Al Ghul from Batman Begins (2005) in this show.
  • In the comics, Green Arrow often had a sidekick named Speedy, who in turn became the subject of a fairly controversial run of the book when he was revealed to have a drug addiction. In the TV show, Queen's sister has the nickname Speedy (to her brother at least) and is shown to be an occasional drug user. She would later meet Roy Harper, who in the comics was the original Speedy. Additionally in the comics, there was a second Speedy named Mia Deardon who, like Thea Queen was also a girl. Thea's middle name is Deardon, as is her mother's, Moira Deardon Queen.
  • Although the character of Oliver Queen was born in 1985, the actor who portrays him, Stephen Amell was born in 1981.
  • Throughout season 1 the main character's alter-ego is never actually referred to as The Green Arrow, but rather going by such obscure titles as "the green hooded guy", "the vigilante", or some combination thereof. Only once is "Green Arrow" suggested (by Oliver Queen's nemesis, Malcolm Merlyn), when a group of people at a dining table are discussing what to call this hooded vigilante. Oliver dismisses the suggestion immediately as "lame". It's not until midways into the following season that the name The Arrow starts to appear, and seems to have stuck.
