- "Tachyon device tracked you on Earth-38 when you met her, so you should find her there."
- —Cisco Ramon to Barry Allen on Kara Danvers.[src]
Alien life has been common knowledge for over a decade on the Earth of this universe - in particular, the Kryptonian heroes Superman and Supergirl. Barry Allen accidentally traveled to the Earth of this universe while testing out his Tachyon device and was able to return home with Supergirl's aid.
When Cisco and Gypsy had a duel over the life of H.R. Wells, they crossed the dimensions and landed on this universe's Earth, in the office of James Olsen. They were seen by Eve Teschmacher fighting before vanishing into another breach.
Recently, the atmosphere of Earth has been seeded with a trace amount of lead, making the planet uninhabitable to Daxamites. Though by the 2400s, a cure will be invented by L-Corp, allowing said species to stay on Earth without any problems.

The Chronicles of Cisco
- Barry Allen went through a series of names from individuals on his Earth and Earth-2, seeing if they exist on Earth-38. After running them by Kara Danvers and looking them up online, it appears that Harrison Wells, Cisco Ramon, Caitlin Snow, Green Arrow, Black Canary, the Atom, Firestorm, Zoom and even himself, as the Flash, all either do not exist or at the very least don't share the same names and identities of their counterparts.
- While Central City still exists on Earth-38, S.T.A.R. Labs does not.

Behind the scenes
- The number 38 is a reference to 1938, the year Superman debuted.
- Earth-38 has been referred to as "Earth-CBS" by Marc Guggenheim as the series first aired on CBS before moving to The CW.
- In the comics, Earth-38 is Home to a Superman that debuted in 1938 and a Batman that first appeared in 1939. Unlike many of the worlds of the Multiverse, time passes on Earth-38 as it does on Earth Prime. Its Worlds Finest team and other heroes aged over the course of passing decades and eventually ceded their roles to their successors and children, beginning a heroic legacy that would continue well into the 30th century itself.
- Next to Earth-1, Earth-38 is the second most important universe in the multiverse as it is the main setting of one of the TV shows of the Arrowverse.
