The Cheetah is a fictional supervillain appearing in DC Comics publications and related media. She is most commonly depicted as the archenemy of the superhero Wonder Woman; however, she has appeared as an enemy to other DC heroes, such as Batman and Superman. She was created by William Moulton Marston as an allegory of the folly of emotions such as jealousy, as well as to be another embodiment of what he called "less actively developed women" (emotionally misaligned) who needed emotional reform by a love leader (Wonder Woman). The Cheetah originally appeared in Wonder Woman #6 (cover-dated: autumn 1943). She has been described as "one of Wonder Womans most iconic enemies."

There have been four different incarnations of the Cheetah since the characters debut: Priscilla Rich (the Golden and Silver Age Cheetah), Deborah Domaine (the Bronze Age Cheetah), Barbara Ann Minerva (the Post-Crisis and current Cheetah), and Sebastian Ballesteros (a male usurper who briefly assumed the role in 2001). In 2009, The Cheetah was ranked as IGNs 69th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.

Since her conception, the Cheetah character has been adapted in various forms of media outside of comics, including animated series, films, and video games. Kristen Wiig portrayed Barbara Ann Minerva / Cheetah in the 2020 DC Extended Universe film Wonder Woman 1984, marking the characters live-action debut.
