Description in the series[]

Ra's al Ghul, literally translated from Arabic as Head of the Demon, is an international, immortal eco-terrorist, and an enemy of Batman and the Super Hero Girls. Believing that humanity is a blight on the planet, his extremist environmentalism has led him to seek the destruction of modern society.

He then move to metropolis and own the place called Lazarus Pit (named after the pit) and made a place for rockers.

In the episode "League Of Shadows," Ra's tasks Ubu to bring Kara Danvers to him. When he did, he ends meeting her and Karen Beecher when introducing himself as "Ra's Al Ghul" which amazed Supergirl. he told Kara and Karen about him and his "Shadow Puppets" had spread to the entire world for a "Noble Cause" which questions Karen and said is for Rock and Roll. Ra's pleads to Kara that she can be the ultimate shadow puppet and said that he met someone "very cool" which Kara excited. He then gives Kara the "Demon's Fang", a red, glowing guitar pick and said to Kara to "enjoy the show" and walks off laughing quietly. Later, on stage, Ra's begins to play his song with his band called "We Really Mean It" which confuses Karen with the lyrics he says. when the music stops, Ra's begins to announce the song for Kara Danvers and sings the song called "When You're Mine" whose lyrics say the Demon's Fang will make the listener obey Ra's. When the song completely hypnotizes Kara, he proceeds to enact his plan.

He then attends the Up Past 8 Concert and reveals to Ubu and the League about his plan to wipeout humanity and all of its evil in the world and begin anew. He told his minions that their shadow puppet is ready and that tonight, they shall rid the planet of mankind's atrocities, and will start with the most obscene example of human weakness: "Bad music!", Which Shock Bumblebee. He then Reveals to his minions that he is prepared to use the Ultimate Weapon and that it can be controlled with "a stone from outer space." When Stage lights turn on, Ra's Begins to unleash the Red Kryptonite's Power on Supergirl and Commands her to Destroy the Up Past 8. The Super Hero Girls interfere and notice that the boys on stage are Barry, Hal, and Garth, dressed in the white Up Past 8 clothes, while Karen ties up the three actual band members backstage in their undergarments.

Trivia:[]

  • Originally, in the Part 2 of the Episode "League of Shadows" Ra's line "Cockroaches, Viruses. Or cockroaches...CARRYING viruses!" was cut from all Cartoon Network and Netflix releases. This was presumably done so due to the 2019 COVID-19 pandemic taking place shortly after the episode aired.
  • From all the villains from the DC Super Hero Girls Franchise, Ra's Al Ghul is the only villain to have his own villain song.
  • Despite there being no direct comparisons, this version of Ra's al Ghul bears a strong resemblace to Jafar from Disney's 1992 Animated film Aladdin.
    • Interestingly, they both have similar appearances and have the same personality. In fact, although he's based on the original Ra's al Ghul from the DC Comics, this version of the television series acts more like Jafar rather than the original Ra's al Ghul.
  • Ironically both his speaking voice and singing voice actors  Sendhil Ramamurthy and Jason C. Miller each have roles in the DC universe. Ramamurthy portrayed Bloodwork in The Flash and Jason C. Miller voiced characters in Wonder Woman (2009), Batman: The Brave and the Bold (2010), Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Part 2 (2013).
