[[ShrugOfGod The creators are ambivalent]] about which incarnation of Robin he's supposed to be, with WordOfGod stating that he's more supposed to represent "[[CompositeCharacter Robin in general]]" rather than a specific member of the Batclan. However, a number of {{Mythology Gag}}s and several other hints point to him being Dick Grayson, the first Robin; this is explicitly revealed in the ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo'' comic.

[[ShrugOfGod The creators are ambivalent]] about which Robin precisely he's supposed to be, with WordOfGod being that he's more supposed to represent "[[CompositeCharacter Robin in general]]" rather than a specific member of the Batclan. However, the show has enough {{Mythology Gag}}s and several hints that have led many to conclude he's Dick Grayson, the first Robin. It should also be mentioned that he's explicitly revealed to be Dick Grayson in ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo'', the comic series based on the cartoon, though YMMV on its canonicity.

* StatusQuoIsGod: Beast Boy is saddled with the most extreme case of this, with the writes very unwilling to have him escape from his CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass baseline. Most of his serious episodes are ignored once they're over (such as when he was nearly [[MadeASlave Made a Pet]] or the entire debacle), but the biggest example is "The Beast Within" which is one of his [[FreakOut darkest]] [[TheCorruption experiences]] [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone in the entire show]], and he's made to end it by being silly and immature even to the point of MomentKiller.

* BareYourMidriff: She wears a crop top that shows her midriff most of the time. While the rest of the team are all wearing Robin's costume in his absence, Starfire wears a midriff baring version.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: Unintentionally. At the end of "Titans East, Part 1" he decides to leave the Titans in order to lead Titans East. As of now, he is the only main Titan in this show who is no longer a Titan in the comics, having been made a member of the Justice League by the advent of the New 52.

* TrueCompanions: [[DownplayedTrope Downplayed]] at first and then later played straight with CharacterDevelopment. They actually have a ''lot'' of internal strife early on, but their bond ultimately sees them through it all and they all grow much closer to each other as the show goes on.

* GenreBlindness: If Robin wasn't so good at [[IndyPloy improvising]] (and so [[CharlesAtlasSuperpower well-trained]]), he would've been dead a ''long'' time ago. The boy simply has no concept that things may not be what they appear to be. ''He gave a frickin' communicator to a villainess who was masquerading as one of his own team'', which was how the season's BigBad and his EvilMinions captured most of the extended Titans rooster. There may be nothing wrong with giving a communicator to someone you think is a friend of yours and who you think might be in trouble soon... but there ''is'' after you just spent the whole episode fighting a ''shapeshifting'' villainess.

* DefeatByModesty: In "Mother Mae Eye" while See-More is fighting Starfire, See-More reveals he had "see-through" vision and then gazes intently at Starfire, which prompts her to cover herself up while blushing. This allows her to be an easy target from See-More's next attack.

* RealMenEatMeat: Inverted; While he sometimes tries to act especially tough, being able to turn into any animal, even carnivores, leaves him perceiving eating ''any'' meat as cannibalism. Funnily enough, in "The Beast Within", when some chemicals make him more aggressive, he says "real men don't eat tofu" and devours Robin's ham-and-eggs breakfast.

* RoleReprisal: Considering the fact that the identity of this Kid Flash is presumably still Wally West, Creator/MichaelRosenbaum was also voicing Wally West version of the ComicBook/{{Flash}} in the Francise/{{DCAU}} series called the ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League]]'' (as well as ''[[WesternAnimation/JusticeLeague Justice League Unlimited]]'') during the years that the show was airing.

* InNameOnly: Aside from her name, powers (albeit with less control them than she is in the comics), former association with the Titans and Slade, she has very little in common with her comic book counterpart, who was more or less an irredeemable psychopath with dwindling sanity while this Terra is everything that her comic book counterpart hates.
