* Beast Boy is the one most at ease with the sillier villains like Control Freak, The Amazing Mumbo, and [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs the Source]], even beating Robin who comes from the same city as TheJoker and the Creeper (so silly ''[[EvenEvilHasStandards Joker called him a lunatic]]''). Seems strange... Until you realize he comes from the ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol''. Before being kicked out, he faced foes who, like [[http://www.headinjurytheater.com/article59.htm The Codpiece]], made the Creeper seem downright well-adjusted.

** And of course, Robin's suspicion that Slade could still be alive because they {{Never Found The Body}} makes sense when you realize that, as Batman's former sidekick, he has more experience with {{Joker Immunity}} than most, having fought the [[TheJoker trope namer]].

** Robin was trained by Batman to be GenreSavvy, even while offering Terra a second chance. Plasmus and Cinderblock have been employed by Slade before, and Terra has already tried to kill them once. Thus it would be like him to keep tabs on all his team members as they're separated, knowing if they need help.

** Alternatively, it could be Slade's version of BullyingADragon. Batman would be GenreSavvy enough to know that Robin wouldn't steal from him without a good reason, and would be [[PapaWolf livid to hear what Slade has done to his adoptive son]]. It's probably for the best, for Slade at least, that the Titans confronted him instead . ..

Added DiffLines:

**It's possible that his choice of lair wasn't as stupid as it seems. First, he gave Terra that special suit which interfaced with her nervous system and allowed him control over her body. Much like with Robin and the nanites, he probably didn't expect her to be able to overcome that. Indeed, the first time we see Terra try to remove the suit, she's unable to do so. Second, choosing an extinct volcano was part of [[SinkOrSwimMentor helping Terra learn to control her powers.]] Terra has two options when they first move in to their little cave: [[DieOrFly control her powers, or else.]]

* In the episode 'Haunted', you could say the gas that made Robin think Slade was there was Scarecrow's fear gas.

* In "Revolution", Mad Mod cited the phrase "those who do not learn from history ar doomed to repeat it" to a British author. The phrase was actually a reference to the words of George Santayana, an ''American'' author. CriticalResearchFailure or just [[EvilBrit Mad Mod]] refusing to acknowledge something as American?

** Easy: Cyborg's dad could likely be giving them some money. I don't know if Batman would be given his ward some money here and there, but Cyborg has a scientist dad. Plus they could easily do things like advertising and the like. Plus with the school thing; Robin was likely homeschooled by Batman, Beast Boy was the same with the Doom Patrol, Starfire was given an education by her tutors when she was still a princes and Raven could have taken lessons with the monks of Azarath. Cyborg is likely the eldest of the team, so he could have already graduated.

to:

* In the Bronze Age lineups, Cyborg had some hard struggles adjusting to being rebuilt with cybernetic parts. Beast Boy was the most consistent at listening to him and trying (as only Beast Boy can) to try and remind him that things weren't as bad as it seemed. Remember Beast Boy's first team? Yeah, Gar's heard it before, because Cliff (Robotman) Steele had the same reaction to being put into a ''fully'' robotic body. Victor's transformation, while very extensive, wasn't nearly as awful as Cliff's.

** Likewise, the closest they came to a TotalPartyKill? That took Terra infiltrating them from within, gaining their trust, becoming part of that teamwirk, and ''then'' handing them over to her employers.

* The unshakable teamwork aspect to the Titans also explain a ''lot'' about how and why Dick turned out differently from Bruce. Bruce has contingency plans for everything, up to and including keeping kryptonite on his person to kill his best friend if he has to. Bruce also spent most of his formative years all but alone. The idea of betrayal never leaves his mind, and therefore he doesn't trust anyone fully (Alfred is possibly the only real exception). Dick spent his formative years among the Titans, sometimes as the only BadassNormal the team had, and yet the one with the most experience in the hero business (well, aside from Beast Boy, who would never want a leadership job anyway). They were all ChildSoldiers who ''had'' to have complete trust and faith in one another because their mentors were usually awful at the parenting job (just see Roy Harper's long-running issues with drugs).

* The Titans, as far as power levels go, aren't as strong as the Franchise/{{Justice League|of America}}, aren't as experienced as the ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica, and even some lineups of ComicBook/DoomPatrol could probably overpower them. But when the Titans do have to go up against any of them, they end up holding their own. The Titans have a degree of ''teamwork'' and loyalty to one another that will put every other hero team to shame, as aptly shown when Nightwing called ''every living past and present'' Titan to show up in a fight against Dr. Light.

to:

** Given the era of her introduction, there's also a Franchise/StarWars element to it. The more she draws on strong emotions, the easier it's going to be to stop listening to reason and start listening to [[TheDarkSide "daddy's" influence.]]

* Given how seriously Amazons treat the crime of sexual assault, why didn't [[LikeBrotherAndSister Donna]] call Mirage on the carpet for what she did to Donna's de facto brother?
