Team Arrow is a fanon nickname for Oliver Queen's Green Arrow team on the TV series Arrow.

Canonically the team refers to Oliver Queen (The Arrow/The Hood), John Diggle, Felicity Smoak, Roy Harper, and Sara Lance (The Canary). It formerly included Helena Bertinelli (The Huntress) and the allies are Barry Allen, Laurel Lance, and Quentin Lance. Prior to Season 3, Quentin was the only one that hadn't learned Oliver was the Arrow.

Fans often include Thea Queen on the team as well, although not always with the knowledge of the truth about Ollie. In works dealing with Season 1 or AU!Season 2 fics, Tommy Merlyn is also included in the team. Laurel Lance sometimes is included prior to S2/S3 works before she officially joined the group in canon in S3. Team Flash's members are also allies to Team Arrow.

At the end of Season 3, Thea Queen is canonically included into the team, taking the place of Roy Harper who left Starling City while passing his uniform to Thea. Season 4 opens to Thea as Speedy, Laurel, and Diggle (in a mask/uniform known as Spartan). Felicity (named Overwatch later in the season) and Oliver return to Star City to help them defend the city from Damien Darhk.

With the release of Vixen online series and Mari McCabe's appearance in Arrow, Season 4, Episode 15, she becomes a canon ally to the team.[1]

Original Team Arrow, or OTA, a canon term that fans use as well refers to Oliver, Diggle, and Felicity due to the fact that they are the original Team members.
