No Island AU is a trope in Arrow fandom. Fanworks (mainly fanfiction) where Oliver Queen was never stranded on the Lian Yu ("Purgatory") island. This results in an alternate universe where Oliver is "normal" and did not become The Arrow/The Hood, usually with the same personality he had Pre-Island.

This is sometimes added into a Role Reversal AU, where Felicity Smoak or another character is trapped on the island instead and experiences the same kind that Oliver had.
