In The Apprentice Part 2, when the Titans arrived at Slade's hideout to rescue Robin, Slade told Robin to attack the Titans, and when he refused, Slade activated the probes again. Robin responded by getting the probes inside himself as well. As Robin stated: "If I lose my friends, you lose your apprentice, and I know how you hate to lose!" At this point, there were two options: Let the probes kill all the Titans, including Robin. Or stop the controller and remove his only hold over Robin. Either way, he no longer has Robin as an apprentice, so why did Slade choose the latter option? Had he opted for the former, he still would've ultimately won. True, he would have lost an apprentice, but he still could have searched for a new one like Terra. And with the Teen Titans gone, there would've been nothing stopping him from taking over the city. And if Terra never met the Titans, she would have had no friendship bonds with them, and no reason to turn on Slade.

In "Aftershock" during their one on one, why did Robin go down so easy? I have no doubt that Terra could've beaten him, but Robin spent the better part of their fight talking to her. To Robin's knowledge Terra had just killed all his friends, her final chance should've been long gone. Robin should've wanted nothing more than to bring her down.

* Beast Boy did not completely express that it was an accident, in addition, he never gave Starfire a real apology until later on in the episode.



** Trigon's spell is instantaneous, after it activated only the Titans and Slade survived. As for Superman, we don't know what his power level is like in this continuity so we can't really say one way or the other if he could beat Trigon.

* What happened to Jinx, Gizmo, and Mammoth during the Brother Blood arc? They escape with him in "Deception", apparently still under his mind-control, but are nowhere to be found in "Wavelength" or "Titans East"? None of them seem like they could escape on their own, or would particularly want to, so why did he stop using them? At that point VillainDecay hadn't set in for him or them, so why would Blood get rid of a badass when given proper direction QuirkyMinibossSquad?

* This happens in a lot of western KidHero medias but..How exactly is it that they don't go to school or have any guardians? They're still underaged. Just because they're super-heroes they can drop out of school, or never go, and live on their own?
** From a Doylist perspective, it's a creative decision the writers made to focus exclusively on their superhero roles with no mention of their civilian lives: it's also why they sleep in their uniforms and never go by any names apart from their superhero aliases. Going Watsonian, though, Robin and Cyborg may have earned their diplomas early: Robin from studying like crazy under Bruce Wayne and Alfred, Cyborg by uploading the relevant data into his brain. Starfire and Raven are basically cosmic tourists hailing from separate alien cultures: they're both likely finished with their own version of secondary education, and even trying to enroll them in an American high-school would be a bureaucratic nightmare. Beast Boy's the odd one out, since he seems to be (mostly) human and immature enough to still belong in high school, but perhaps Mento (who's nothing if not intellectually strict) had him finish his equivalent degree way back when he was with the Doom Patrol.

** If you were superintendent for a school district, responsible for thousands of students daily, would you want superheroes attending your school? Answer: No, you wouldn't.
** I think part of it is The City realizing that nobody else can protect the city from super villains, so they tolerate their truancy and independence (and probably help fund their operation).

to:

**ACTUALLY if you really really want to fit it in the DCAU you can put it before Batman:TAS because in B:TAS Robin is college age but in Teen Titans he's about high school age. And we know from the B:TAS episode "Robin's Reckoning" that Dick Grayson has been Robin since he was like 9. It's entirely possible that around the time he was 15 he decided to go solo and mmove to Jump City and then he went back to Gotham to attend college at Gotham University at the time B:TAS takes place. To aadd to that in the episode Lightspeed Kid Flash is voiced by Michael Rosenbaum, the same actor who voiced Flash in the Justice League which builds on the idea of Teen Titans being a prequel to the DCAU.

*** Does the OP thing that cops that go undercover to bust child prostitution rings are bad people too?






The ''ComicBook/TeenTitansGo!'' comics confirm that [[spoiler:the schoolgirl is Terra, princess of Markovia. Issue 51, "Metamorphosis".]] A ShoutOut, perhaps?

It's the same Terra from season ,

I can understand Starfire's anger at Beast Boy's prank, but what Beast Boy did to Starfire was a complete ACCIDENT. He was targeting Cyborg and he was completely shocked when he found out that it was Starfire walking in the hallway.
