Short intro to the character:

Thea Dearden Queen is the little sister of Oliver Queen and his former sidekick. Thea was in years kept in the dark of Oliver's secret of being the Arrow, but once she found out about his secret, she also picked up the fight against crime in Star City alongside him. In her vigilante days she went by her nickname Speedy. She is now currently retired from her role as a vigilante

-This is an unfinished respect thread and will be updated later

Some of the gif's may be lacking in quality and fps and may therefore be changed out later if I can find better gif's. The lack of Arrow season 4 videos on YouTube makes this a challenging task and I welcome everyone to fill me in if there is something I missed.

Archery

As Green Arrow's sidekick Speedy is a highly trained archer. She prefers to use regular arrows to trick arrows.

Thea also displays incredible awareness, something that comes in handy combined with her archery skills

Thea has on occasion used trick arrows, most notably the grappling hook arrow.

Speedy is also extremely skilled in throwing projectiles as well.

In episode 4x19 Speedy is completely fine after being launched multiple meters by the canary cry and landing on broken glass

Speedy has also through her training with Macolm developed an incredibly high pain tolerance.

In episode 3x03 a man spills hot coffee on Thea's hand and she doesn't even flinch.

In episode 3x14 she merely groaned while Oliver dislocated her shoulder.

H2h combat

Speedy has undergone months of training by Malcolm Merlyn. Merlyn's main focus was training Speedy in swordsmanship, but has also given her quite a bit of training in archery and unarmed combat as well. Speedy is later taught disarming maneuvers by Oliver Queen and is also seen training stick fighting/eskrima with him on many occasions.

This is brilliant! Keep these Respect Threads coming. I'd forgotten about most of these feats, and now I have a reference for them. Would you like me to make GIFs of the things you've only mentioned?

I have glossed over most of them. The rapid fire feat is pretty impressive. I remember a couple of her feats that might be worth mentioning.

Nyssa, I think that she has some impressive feats that go overlooked.

Do you have gifs of those feats or any videos you can link me to? So I can make sure to add them

@rbt: I think the first one was a deleted scene. It was actually removed because the producers didn't think that Thea could beat the assassins in that state.
