* BerserkButton: He does not like being compared to Slade. [[UnstoppableRage At all.]] (Most noticeable in the Apprentice episodes, he manages to get over it but it's still a sensitive issue for him.) However, this is partially true, since he's as obsessive as Slade. Deep down Robin does realize this, but doesn't want it to be point out. This may be why he's so obsessive with Slade, as he made him something he doesn't want to be and always many steps ahead of Robin.

* TheConfidant: While he doesn't show it very often, he's one of the more understanding members of The Titans. In "Birthmark" Raven lamented some of her past onto him.

Terra was envisioned as a LighterAndSofter adaptation of the infamous "[[ComicBook/TheJudasContract Judas Contract Arc]]" character, who was a stone-cold psycho hired by Slade from the beginning to infiltrate the Teen Titans and managed to creep ''him'' out. The animated Terra, on the other hand, was envisioned as a more sympathetic, confused character -- WordOfGod describes her as no longer caring about good or evil, [[BrokenBird just wanting to no longer be hurt.]]

[[folder:Thunder and Lightning]]
->'''Thunder Voiced By:''' S. Scott Bullock (English)
->'''Lightning Voiced By:''' Creator/QuintonFlynn (English)

A pair of supernatural brothers with storm-based powers who search for new ways to amuse themselves, regardless of how much damage they cause or how many lives they jeopardize in the process. They first come into conflict with the Titans when they use their powers to destroy a bridge, and are later manipulated by [[BigBad Slade]] into using their powers to create a monstrous fire demon to destroy Jump City. Fortunately, they undergo a HeelFaceTurn and combine their powers to form a rainstorm that destroys the fire monster, which summarily helps them make peace with the Titans and become Honorary Titans as well.

Powers and Abilities: Electricity manipulation, above average agility (Lightning). Sonic blast generation, superhuman strength (Thunder). Flight, TwinTelepathy, rain generation (Both).

* BashBrothers
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Though they both relish in the chaos they create from their "playtime", Thunder is the first to realize what kind of trouble their actions cause after Beast Boy calls him out on it. Lightning, however, is fixated on keeping himself amused and doesn't realize the amount of danger he puts others in until the climax of his debut episode.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Their designs look much more like a classic anime, ala Manga/AstroBoy or Manga/{{Cyborg 009}}, with Thunder especially having his eyes stylized as connected together rather than being individual.

* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Though they both relish
AdaptationNameChange: While his super-name from the comics was chosen because it meant heat in Swahili it was also discovered to be an offensive Latin-American Spanish word for gay people so it was changed to Hot Spot for the cartoon and in the chaos comics.
* ADayInTheLimelight: The episode ''[[Recap/TeenTitansS5E3Trust Trust]]'' is dedicated to Madame Rouge’s attempts to steal his communicator from him.
* AfraidOfTheirOwnStrength: Only in situations where
they create from their "playtime", Thunder are a liability, and seeing as he lives next to an extensive oil field this limits where he is the first willing to realize what kind of trouble their actions cause go while using his powers. During his fight with Rouge he prefers not to power down after Beast Boy calls he figures out that as indestructible as she is she can’t hold on to him while he is powered up which limits his movements.
* AllForNothing: After spending the better part of a day fighting and fleeing from Madame Rouge he burns himself
out on it. Lightning, however, is fixated on in a final attempt to take her out and escape from her and protect rest of the Titans by keeping himself amused her from getting a Titans communicator. Not only does this allow her to capture him she also [[spoiler: takes his form and doesn't realize almost immediately gets Robin to give her a communicator to replace the amount of danger he puts others in until the climax of one Hot Spot had destroyed to keep her from stealing one]].

his debut episode.

head while transformed, especially having while BurningWithAnger, but usually keeps a bald look.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: He is quick to anger in some situations and will snap at anyone trying to boss him around but his immediate response upon learning that Madame Rouge is only after him for his communicator is to destroy it to protect the other Titans even knowing that he is removing any reason she had for trying not to kill him.
* IWorkAlone: While he is an honorary Titan he prefers to work alone and is not only hesitant to call in help but insulted when it is insinuated he needs to and even if he is happy to see Robin that does not mean he will take orders from him, especially if they contradict what Isaiah knows about a situation.
* ManOfKryptonite: Hot Spot's powers make it impossible for Madam Rouge to capture by force- at least directly and make it difficult for her to hold up her transformations while near him.
* MonochromaticEyes: While he is powered up
his eyes stylized are completely white.
* MovieSuperheroesWearBlack: His costume is much sleeker and black in contrast to the busy grey yellow and white bodysuit with cropped hoodie from the comics, though his comics costume eventually came to reflect the more simplified one from the show.
* TheNoseless: While transformed.
* LeParkour: How he gets around his city, running jumping and climbing.
* PlayingWithFire: He is Pyrokinetic.
* ProperlyParanoid: By the time Robin actually does show up to help him against Madame Rouge he’s been fighting her for a very long time and discovered that she spent hours
as connected together rather than being individual.masquerading as Robin trying to help him escape from Madame Rouge so he is not up for another RememberThatYouTrustMe from anyone who looks or sounds like Robin and just runs from both Robins so he’ll only have to fight one at a time.
* WreathedInFlames: When he is powered up he transforms to look like he is made of fire or magma trapped in glass.

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: Gains one in "The Beast Within," to an extent- the Beast (an homage to Film/AnAmericanWerewolfInLondon, according to WordOfGod) is certainly his most powerful form, but isn't "evil" so much as amoral and uncontrollable- more like The ComicBook/IncredibleHulk than Raven's inner demon.

Its presence here may or may not be taken as evidence that the Chief exists in this incarnation as well.

* AdaptationPersonalityChange: Now, it's worth noting that classic Mento (Doom Patrol Vol. 1) was always an ass and didn't really get along with Beast Boy, but that's still a far cry from the demanding, obsessed, and unforgiving leader in the cartoon.
