->''"As long as it's none of [[{{Animesque}} that wannabe-anime]] crap. That stuff is ruinin' Creator/CartoonNetwork."''\\
--Cyborg

TheAbridgedSeries of ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans''. Like other recent series, manages to avert LarynxDissonance by having several voice actors of both sexes.

----
This series contains examples of:
* AllUpToYou: While Beast Boy and Raven stumble upon, work out and abandon a relationship on the sidelines, Cyborg is forced to take on Raven's "Trigon" personality shard by himself. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome He wins.]]
* BeautyEqualsGoodness: parodied and lampshaded by Aqualad when he is talking about Trident:
--->'''Aqualad''': On Atlantis, he is a criminal and I am a good guy, because he is ugly and I am pretty.
--->'''Raven and Starfire''': Yes, you are!
* BigDamnHeroes: Beastboy refers to Aqualad as one in Episode 8.
* BrownNote, not quite LogicBomb: Fix-It is defeated by being deluged with... ''Manga/WeddingPeach'' episodes. "Truly, a fate worse than dying."
* CatchPhrase: "Sure, it's not like we have anything better to do."
** "This will require teamwork/Good teamwork!" while Robin defeats the enemy with one punch.
* CharacterExaggeration: Played with, somehow, regarding fake-Starfire duplicating Starfire's canon ludicrous ditziness.
* ComedicSociopathy: Raven ("I hate all of you") as well as Robin and... everyone else, except possibly Cyborg.
** Lampshaded more than once in the Thunder and Lightning episode.
--->'''Robin:''' This city already has its own destructive jerks! The Teen Titans!\
** Another example is a running gag where the Titans are confused when people refer to themselves as friends.
--->'''Raven:''' Destroying the national park didn't work. And destruction is all we know how to do!
* CrossoverShip: Beast Boy's nightmare is being in a SlashFic with [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Sephiroth]]. [[invoked]]
* DiscriminateAndSwitch: When the Titans go clubbing
--> Beast Boy: I bet Cyborg can do a mean robot.
--> Cyborg: Oh sure, just because I'm black you assume I can dance.
* DoAnythingRobot: "[Cyborg's] machines can do anything the plot calls for."
* DontExplainTheJoke: Mumbo explains all his jokes and he still thinks they're funny.
* FollowTheLeader
* GameMaster: Bobcat's Dungeon Master Role in Episode 7 when the Puppet King attempts to use Starfire and Raven as slaves. Raven wants to make her and Starfire immune to the attack along with making Cyborg snapping out of the attack as well.
* GenreSavvy: Everyone, at some point or the other
* AGodAmI: Raven's [[BoisterousBruiser gung-ho]] personality, who demands worship as lord and savior.
** probably a case of ActorAllusion as Faith's Melody also provides the voice to Haruhi Suzumiya in [=FullMetalChao's=] "TheAbridgingOfHaruhiSuzumiya"
*** Word of God is he wasn't even thinking about it. It was just a coincidence.
* LampshadedTheObscureReference: In episode 11, after a few references were made, Robin wondered who declared it obscure reference day. He then gets annoyed when Starfire claims a ''Series/DoctorWho'' reference would be obscure.
* LiteraryAllusionTitle: episode four "How to be an Anime Without Really Trying" from "How to Succeed in Business...."
** Arguably episode five also, "Full Metal Panic!" referring to the manga series of the same name.
*** Also, "All of Me," for the Steve Martin movie.
* MeanwhileBackAtThe: As ever, with a bit of ''SuperFriends'' parody
** Some would say it manages to become an OverlyLongGag by the second episode.
* NaughtyTentacles: Cyborg's robo-tendrils and the squid probe. "The rape of the [[WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries tentacles is not in my contract]]!"
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: The line "Actual Dialogue" will flash at the bottom of the screen if it's something particularly bad that the characters really did say.
* TheOtherDarrin: Blackfire replaces Starfire by the end of episode 2 and the others make sure she copies her completely so no one will notice.
** This apparently worked well in real life. Although she drops character every other episode, the Youtube comments always say "Oh yeah, I forgot she was Blackfire!"
* RunningGag: "[[VindicatedByHistory History will forgive me]]! Just like Joseph Stalin and Benedict Arnold."
** "Soon after, at the Benedict Arnold Memorial Bridge..."
** "Later, back at the Joseph Stalin Memorial Park..."
** "Sometime later, at Genghis Khan avenue..."
** "A short time later, at Vlad The Impaler speedway ..."
* ScheduleSlip: Episode Seven comes eight months after Six, with an Apology Vid about in the middle of the break. And then, Episode 8 came out a year after episode 7. Episode 9 finally came out, almost a year later. Episode 10 came out 2 months later. 9 months later was Episode 11 and 9 months after that finally came Episode 12 (which lampshaded how long it took to get there), which ended the season (they skipped Mad Mod).
* ShipTease: WordOfGod is they're aiming to do this for every ship. The biggest being when Robin and Raven's mutual ComedicSociopathy ends with a "make-out session behind the tree."
** Or when Raven and Beast Boy break up after "dating for ten seconds".
---> Beast Boy: You're a hot girl who runs around in a swimsuit. ''Of course'' I like you.
* ShoutOut: Raven's 'destruction' quote above is a reference to a ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' quote about 'murder.'
** There have been a couple references to Freakazoid, too; Raven "throws a barrel" at a monster in episode three, and the dance club in episode two plays the Freakazoid theme song. Also, Beast Boy uses the phrase Crud Vapors as an expletive.
** "Your dad[Trigon] is [[{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]]?!"
* StartMyOwn: Cyborg, with obligatory ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' homage.
* StepThreeProfit: The name of Episode three: "Divide, Conquer, ???, Profit!"
* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Starfire thinks of Robin in terms of "friendship and nothing else, and certainly nothing involving chains and hot wax."
* TakeThat, [[Manga/WeddingPeach "second-rate magical girl anime!"]] (likely AffectionateParody, considering [=TokuTenshi=]'s involved...)
** Grant Morrison gets a knock at his unusual storylines in Episode 8, with the introduction of Pices the Aquadog.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: "Gravity trumps pink, bitch."
* WhoWouldBeStupidEnough: Done with a flashback to the first episode. Gizmo could learn from Fix-It.
** Starfire's not an alien, she's just a cloud of swamp gas...
