*** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], Raven is actually still a [[spoiler:Heel]] in the New 52. the only difference is that Rachel has been brainwashed into being Trigon's [[sleeper agent]] in the Teen Titans, and was recently released from the mind control that was inflicted upon her.

* AllEncompassingMantle



* AstralProjection
* BirdsOfAFeather: With Beast Boy in the New 52.
* BrokenBird



* DivineParentage: She is the daughter of the demon Trigon and a human woman, something that causes her considerable angst.



* {{Empath}}
** EmpathicHealer: Could heal others, at the cost of having to feel their agony.
** EmotionEater: Initially could just instill and influence emotions in others, such as getting Wally West to believe he loved her. By volume 3, she'd developed the power to drain others of emotion as a way to help calm crowds.



* {{Flight}}
* GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul: This was Raven's main power when she used the white cloak during the Wolfman era. Purified from Trigon's evil side, and no longer forced to deny emotions, she enjoyed giving happiness to everybody. Both to enemies, to make them become good guys, and to mere bystanders.



* GrandTheftMe: Trigon's evil influence basically manifests as a completely separate persona within her in "ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon", leaving her to astral-project herself out of fear.
** After Raven died at the end of "Titans Hunt", her evil self manifested as her own persona and managed to implant herself into a metahuman to be the second incarnation of "Dark Raven". Luckily, the evil self unknowingly implanted the soul of the good/purified Raven into Starfire. Needless to say, both "halves" of her were still equally considered Raven (the pure soul and the Trigon avatar).



* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Due to the demonic influence of her father.

to:

* TheHeart
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Due to the Raven's [[InTheBlood demonic influence of blood]] seems to turn her father.evil at least once a year, or give her paranoia of doing so.



* InTheHood: Raven often wears a hood over her head.

to:

* HypnotizeThePrincess: A case in the good guys' side. When she first reunited the Titans, Wally West refused to take part in it, so Raven influenced his emotions to make him love her. It was discovered a few issues later, and gave problems for years. Thanks for nothing, Zatanna!
* InTheHood: Raven often wears a hood over She loves the Hood; it somehow conceals her head.face just as well as a mask but without that pesky glue. It even stays on when she flies (the animated version provides a possible explanation for this by giving her telekinesis, a power she lacks in the comics.)



* LeotardOfPower: Wore a unitard after the ''One Year Later'' timeskip that paid homage to her animated self's outfit (but covered her legs). It was later discarded in favor of her wearing a dress again.
* TheMedic: Healing is her primary power and she is a pacifist who hates violence.
* {{Mediator}}
* MindControl: Subjects Beast Boy to this in her first appearance in the New 52.



* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands:In her original portrayal, she was an empath and could teleport, along with inducing feelings in others. After her revival, Geoff Johns and other writers gave her the ability to fly (to tie in with her animated version), to completely deprive others of emotions, and gradually more previously-unseen magical powers for whatever type of story they wanted to tell.



* ShesGotLegs: Raven's original dress (both blue and white) showed her legs. Perez always included a MaleGaze on them.



* [[TeleportersAndTransporters Teleportation]]



* WhatIsThisThingYouCallLove: While not a complete EmotionlessGirl, when purged of Trigon's influence for the first time, she had difficulty comprehending her suppressed emotions. Specifically the different branches of them. Because of this her powers were greatly influenced by her extreme emotional states. She assumed Nightwing's platonic love, was no different than romantic love and this caused her powers to make him believe he was romatically in love with her without either of them knowing the true cause. Starfire caught on to this and helped her see through her mistake.
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Beast Boy.
** OfficialCouple: Settles on this just before the reboot too.
** In the NTT era she had a similiar relationship with Jericho with a more UnresolvedSexualTension flair.



** At the beginning of volume 3, the resurrected Raven is dressed in a white dress and cloak by the new Brother Blood. After Beast Boy helps her get back in control of her mind and powers, she rejects Blood and her uniform magically becomes blue.

Raven is born from a human woman named Arella after the latter was tricked and raped by a human-disguised Trigon. Due to her heritage, she's raised in the distant land of Azarath where she started learning to control her emotions to suppress her demonic powers by the Goddess Azar. However, she learned her heritage after Azar died, and had been trying to convince the people of Azarath to take action and stop Trigon, but Azarath's pacifistic nature prevented anyone there to comply to Raven's pleas. Swearing to stop him, Raven travelled to Earth and sought help. She first asked the help from the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, but due to ComicBook/{{Zatanna}} sensing the evil power within her, Raven was rejected. Still desperate, Raven instead sent telepathic message to some of the previous Comicbook/TeenTitans members who has since split up ([[ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} Dick Grayson/Robin]], [[Comicbook/TheFlash Wally West/Kid Flash]], [[WonderGirl Donna Troy/Wonder Girl]]) along with some new heroes; Koriand'r/Starfire, Victor Stone/Cyborg and Garfield Logan/Beast Boy, uniting them as the new Teen Titans to help her combat Trigon. While at first distant, Raven began to accept them as her new adoptive family and began opening up from her withdrawn nature.
