The Lasso of Truth is the main weapon of Wonder Woman. It compels those captured by it to speak the truth. In the battle with Lena Luthor, Wonder Woman used the lasso to hold one of her warsuit's arms in place. Wonder Woman snagged Giganta's arm but she yanked and Wonder Woman was wrapped up in the Lasso then hung up. Wonder Woman admitted it felt humiliating. She later used it against Starro. Gordon started to realize the others didn't want to hang out with Harleen Quinzel. They tried to deny it but Gordon used the Lasso of Truth on them. They all thought Quinzel was the worst. Gordon gasped. Danvers realized she missed her and awkwardly joined the others. Gordon felt betrayed and un-friended them. During a battle with a crew of villains, Wonder Woman momentarily looked away, giving Catwoman an opening to steal the Lasso of Truth. She threw it to Harley Quinn. Harley lassoed the Super Hero Girls and was given the honor of finishing them off. Harley cocked and raised her mallet but her cell phone went off. It was Gordon.

Harley took the call and walked away. Catwoman was flummoxed and dropped the rope. The Super Hero Girls rallied back. Batgirl apologized to everyone for ditching them for Quinzel and wanted to prove it with the Lasso of Truth. Wonder Woman stopped her and apologized on everyone's behalf, too. During the mission to save the bridge, Wonder Woman used the lasso to snag Livewire. The lasso was used to prevent a disabled elevator at Metropolis Plaza from crashing down. Wonder Woman used on Zod but he pulled on the rope and tossed her. Wonder Woman used the Lasso to haul the bodies of the other Super Hero Girls after Katana took their souls with the Soultaker sword. While in possession of the powers of the Super Hero Girls, Casey Krinsky used the Lasso of Truth to lasso Diana. Diana declared they had no chance. Wonder Woman snagged several Moth-Monsters at once with the Lasso. With the adult Steve the Griffin not listening to her commands, Wonder Woman used the Lasso of Truth as a leash on him at Metropolis Pier but he continued to resist. She pulled him back into the city to locate the source of a disturbance, a Hydra.

The lasso was once stolen by Harley Quinn. She used it on a patron at Matt's Vegan Cafe who confessed he would give his left arm for a burger. She used it on Barbara Ann Minverva during her gymnastics practice. Minverva admitted she was not a natural blonde, had extensions, and her contacts were color ones. She used it on Hal Jordan in the boys locker room. He admitted to himself he was the best looking guy in Metropolis and probably the tri-state area. Harley used it on Karen Beecher in a park. She critiqued Just Before Dusk to her horror. She used it on Garth Bernstein in the Metropolis High lunch room. He admitted he was Aqualad. She used it on Giganta. Giganta admitted she smashes things because she was overcompensating for deep insecurity rooted in a quest for perfection and overpowering fear in not being good enough. Harley lastly thought to use it as a bungee cord during her robbery of the Bank of Moolah but was unaware of its unlimited length. She crashed into a tree and was tied up in the lasso. Wonder Woman and Supergirl found her. Supergirl got an idea and decided to have a little conversation before turning her over to the police.

Wonder Woman attempted to grab a citizen in distress with her Lasso of Truth but as Doris Zeul timed it, the 1:00 ray of sunshine bounced off the Daily Planet globe and blinded Wonder Woman. She instead snagged a pipe on the roof of a bus and was dragged through the city. It was used in the battle against Starro to snag an appendage.

During a Monday morning battle with Giganta, Wonder Woman used the lasso to restrain Giganta's hands then Zatanna teleported her away. Wonder Woman tried to dissipate a mysterious cloud eclipsing the city with the centrifugal force of the Lasso of Truth but she only got carried off and made a small hole in the cloud. During a dog adoption fair disrupted by Catwoman, Wonder Woman used the Lasso of Truth to wrangle several dogs at once. The Lasso was used on Wonder Woman to snap her out of her obsession with Lexcorp's new app, Pigeon Party. Supergirl asked her if the team or app mattered more to her. Wonder Woman declared it was an honor to be their leader.
