[[caption-width-right:350:[-[[RecursiveAdaptation The comic based on the series based on the comic.]]-] ]]

''Teen Titans Go!'' is a {{comics}} series that ran for 55 issues from 2003 to 2008, based on the animated series ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', ''itself'' based on [[Comicbook/TeenTitans an older comics series of the same name]]. Like the cartoon, it is {{animesque}} and intended primarily for pre-teen boys, but did not shy away from somewhat darker material as the series progressed. It featured one-shot gags in the page margins presented by [[SuperDeformed chibi]] versions of the cast, as well as continuations or expansions of plotlines from the series. Most issues, however, presented stand-alone plots.

As expected, the series features the Teen Titans: Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Raven, five young [[SuperHero costumed superheroes]], and their adventures in Jump City. Some issues [[ADayInTheLimelight shift the focus onto secondary characters]] such as Larry and Terra, or even villains like the HIVE Graduates, in addition to some characters from the original series who did not appear in the cartoon, such as Rose Wilson, Geo-Force, and Wonder Girl.
----
!!Tropes:

* AdaptationExpansion: Backstories, expanded filler, and even post-Season 5 ideas are given deeper detail all throughout the comic's run.
* AllThereInTheManual: The name of the city was never stated in [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans the series proper]]. The tie-in comic named the city as "Jump City" and [[{{Fanon}} the fandom took this and ran with it]].
* AlternateUniverse: Issue 48, "Wrong Place, Wrong Time", goes through a few of these in an attempt to get Killowat back to his own world, starting with the world of the [[EvilTwin Teen Tyrants]].
* {{Animesque}}
* AscendedExtra: Remember that goth kid from "Sisters"? He and Raven are dating.
* {{Backstory}}
** Issue 45 covers Beast Boy and Cyborg (two-parter).
** 46 covers Starfire while also introducing her long-lost brother, Wildfire.
** Half of Issue 47 covers Robin.
** Issue 51, Metamorphosis, covers Terra and her brother Geo-Force.
* BaseballEpisode: 33, "The Strangest Sports Story Ever Told". Which, amusingly, features a ShoutOut to the ''Comicbook/YoungJustice'' comic with the same plot:
-->'''Raven:''' Please. You got this idea from... some old comic book.
* TheCameo: One of the issues include a cameo of {{Batman}} himself, watching the Titans from afar and proud on what Robin has become.
* ChristmasEpisode
** Issue [[RuleOfSymbolism 25]], "Secret Santa".
** 37, "Winterlude", is set the day after Christmas (though probably not the ''same'' Christmas as issue 25), and is narrated poetically in the style of ''TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas''. Which is a ShoutOut to a similar issue from ''Comicbook/YoungJustice''.
* CityOfAdventure: The city from the series is finally named here: Jump City.
* DialHForHero: Issue 52, period.
* DistaffCounterpart: Issue 42, "Bad Girls", introduces Pink X, Mad Maud, Joystick, Marionette, and Daughter Blood. [[spoiler:They're all the same girl, though: Killer Moth's daughter Kitten.]]
* ExcitedShowTitle
* FishPerson: Gill Girl from issue 10.
* FreudianExcuse: Red Raven, in her self-titled issue 44 (a continuation of 42), attacks and destroys anything having to do with fathers (Founding Fathers display at the museum, Fathers Day gifts at stores, etc.).
* [[GiveHimANormalLife Give Her a Normal Life]]: When Geo-Force finds out whats happened to Terra. He doesn't bother revealing himself to her noticing its the first time he seen her happy. And he doesn't wish to pull her back into super heroics.
* HumongousMecha: Issue 9 introduces the Titans Go-Bot 5, which the team uses to fight Gizmo's giant robot. It's later used to fight a Professor Chang-controlled Beast Boy, a.k.a Garsaurus Rex.
* LegacyCharacter: An interesting variation: issue 54, "Makes You Wonder", features Cassie Sandsmark attemping to usurp Donna Troy's position as Wonder Girl.
* LotusEaterMachine: 38, "It's a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod World"
* MagicSkirt: Weirdly disregarded for issue 20; turns out Blackfire wears shorts under her skirt.
* MarsNeedsWomen: Or rather [[MadScientist Braboldian scientists]] [[MarsNeedsWomen want]] [[StockSuperpowers superpowered]] [[MarsNeedsWomen females]] [[ForScience for their experiments]]; issue 36, "Troy". If ''that'''s not [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar getting crap past the radar]], I don't know what it is. Except maybe TropeOverdosed.
* MesACrowd: "Pieces of Me": Raven's "emoticlones" are let loose by accident and several of them run amuck throughout the city.
* MythologyGag:
** Issue 18 has Larry put the Titans "all back the way you should be":
*** Starfire acquires her mainstream version's hair and exclaims "X'Hal!"
*** Beast Boy gets his old Doom Patrol costume.
*** Robin gets an older version of his costume. [[UnderwearOfPower With no real pants.]]
** Raven gets a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] hung on her more goth-like appearance.
** There's also the Terror Titans of Issue 48, three of whom are Red Robin, Arsenal and Tempest -- the same names used by certain older versions of Robin, Speedy and Aqualad. As their team name indicates, they're decidedly twisted versions.
** That same issue features Raven opening doors to various alternate realities, including the original-flavor ''Teen Titans'' from the Silver Age and, in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it peak, Secret and Lobo of ''Comicbook/YoungJustice''.
** There's a story where Kitten, angry with her father, starts committing crimes while claiming to be the daughter of other villains to get his attention. A couple of the identities she adopts (Gemini, daughter of Madam Rouge, and Ravager, daughter of Slade) are actual characters in the standard DC universe. On top of that, at one point a frustrated Robin says that it's probably TheJoker's Daughter playing a prank.
** In issue 39, a Valentine's Day issue, Speedy and Chesire get hit by an arrow and fall in love. In the comics, they briefly fell in love and had a child together.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: According to the Wildfire issue, Blackfire has sold off Starfire to the Gordanians to keep them from invading Tamaran, If you've seen the episode "GO!" from the TV series. You can tell how this little plan turned out.
* [[InnocentFanserviceGirl No Nudity Taboo]]: Starfire, according to the end of Issue 8.
* PaintingTheFourthWall: In ''"Magic and Misdirection"'', Mumbo opens a trap door that makes Beast Boy fall out of the panel. Starfire and Terra follow, and we're treated to a few pages of them wandering around the borders of the page while SuperDeformed.
* RecursiveAdaptation
* RelationshipWritingFumble: The creators of the animated series [[WordOfGod clearly stated]] that Beast Boy and Raven were not romantically linked, but ''Go!'' pretty much ignores this.
** At the same time, though, Raven does go on several dates with the OneSceneWonder goth kid from the show.
* TheReveal
** Issue 16 has a pretty big surprise for the Titans, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny especially Beast Boy]]. [[spoiler:The child Starfire has been spending the day with at the mall, trying to help him find his parents? He's their ally ''Wildebeest!'']]
** The first half of issue 47, "Regarding Robin", reveals without a doubt that Robin is in fact Dick Grayson.
** According to "Metamorphosis", [[spoiler: the schoolgirl ''is'' Terra. [[BigBrotherInstinct Geo-Force can tell]].]]
** Are we not mentioning that [[spoiler: Ravager, aka Rose Wilson, aka ''Slade's daughter'' appears and attacks the Titans, then joins them?]] It makes you wonder what Season 6 might have been like...
* [[RiseOfZitboy Rise of Zitgirl]]: Raven in issue 5, "Monster Zit".
* SecretLegacy: Terra, [[spoiler: as it turns out she's a princess of a kingdom. Sadly she never finds this out.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: In "Pieces of Me", Starfire expresses her belief that [[FanPreferredCouple Beast Boy and Raven]] should be together. More than once. And she isn't particularly subtle about it, either.
** Starfire also pretty vocally ships Cyborg/Sarah Simms, playing cupid for them and arranging their date in the Valentine's issue Teen Titans Go! #27.
* SnapBack: There are stories that clearly take place ''after'' the fifth and final season of the show, and yet nearly every villain in the show's run was frozen in the end...
** Presumably they got unfrozen (perhaps so they could stand trial) and subsequently escaped. After all, prisons have [[CardboardPrison a remarkably low success rate at holding supervillains]]...
* SuperDeformed: Other than the margin-gags, there's also issue 18, "When Chibis Attack". Raven even explicitly refers to their tiny counterparts as "chibified".
