* CainAndAbel: Whenever Raven is given a sibling she's the Abel to their Cain.
** In the second ''Titans'' volume the villains of the opening arc were six previously unknown half brothers by Trigon who stole their dad's powers and tried to get Raven to join them. Their powers were based on the SevenDeadlySins with Raven's evil side manifesting as Pride.
** In the non-canon ''New Teen Titans: Games'' graphic novel, one of the Gamesmaster's playing pieces is revealed to be [[spoiler: an unnamed half sister who was abandoned and cast to Earth when she was a baby. The child grew up inside Arkham Asylum and her abilities made the insanity of the other inmates even worse. Raven manages to purge her sister's madness just before she dies thanks to the self destruct device implanted in all of the playing pieces, but before she dies Raven is able to give her a name so her soul can rest in peace: Azara.]]

* AdaptationSpeciesChange: Comicbook/{{Raven}} is usually half-demon in most continuities, but in ''ComicBook/TeenTitansEarthOne'' she appears to be entirely human [[MagicalNativeAmerican albeit not a normal one]].



* ApocalypseMaiden



* ChekhovsGift: Her rings, gifted by Azar at her death, turned out to be much more powerful than readers thought. They destroyed Trigon during ''ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon''

* ChildByRape: She is this with the specifics depending on the version. In the very first origin (written before Marv Wolfman and George Perez got their act together), Trigon took Arella, her mother, as his bride while using a human guise and didn't reveal himself until much later, making her a child of rape by fraud since Arella never would have agreed had she known what he really was. The second origin, which is generally considered to be the canon (by this point, Wolfman and Perez had long settled down in their thing), Trigon brutally raped Arella. In the latest origin (written by Geoff Johns), it used the fraud explanation, but still counts as this trope.

** ComicBook/{{New 52}} seems to have finally set on [[spoiler:Face]].
*** [[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.

* AdaptationalConsent: The exact details of her conception have varied from writer to writer, with the main difference being whether Trigon first seduced her mother Arella using a human guise or brutally raped her without any pretense.

* RetCanon: Following the ''One Year Later'' TimeSkip from ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis, she donned a similar costume to the one from the cartoon (modified to include a bird symbol and leggings).
** Also the concept of a romantic relationship between her and Beast Boy originated in the TV show before being ported back to the comics.

* MultipleChoicePast: In the case of her conception and her mother Arella. Marv Wolfman's original origin had Arella as an adopted child who didn't know her actual parents or her birth name, and it stated that she attempted to get legal help and support after her rape until she fell into despair and was taken to Azarath. In the more modern origin, Arella had the birth name of "Angela Roth" and lived in Gotham City, where she was kicked out when she decided to rebel against her controlling father. She then wound up instantly spirited away to Azarath, after Trigon raped her and she attempted to kill herself.
