** In a very transparent attempt to not make Spyke seem "[[ButNotTooBlack urban]]," the writers had him using all sorts of skater lingo.

** The youngest Titan, Beast Boy, in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' uses a lot of surfer slang like "dudes". The series ''is'' implied to take place in California, though. This is even more noticeable in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo'' as he's much goofier and more laidback.
** The "Rad Dudes With Bad Tudes" episode of ''Teen Titan sGo'' revolves around this and parodies it. Robin says "rad" and gets called out by the other Titans for using outdated slang. He is the only one of his group to consider rollerblades cool. The others think they're old and call rollerbladers "grandpas". The entire episode is full of 1980s slang and the Titans start dressing like neon, 80s stereotypes.

* ''WesternAnimation/RocketPower'':
** Oddly lampshaded (sort of) in an episode where the cast laments the "Kooks" (non-local) and such stealing their "lingo" and using it without the proper pronunciation or usage. This is remarkably tone-deaf coming from a show that was just as likely to horrendously misuse slang as the Kooks are in-universe. "Remember when the Squid totally BEEFED IT?"

* Jubilee in the original ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' cartoon laid the ValleyGirl slang on thick even by the standards of the time, with many lines sounding like they came from a Random Nineties Teen Phrase Generator. "Does a mallbaby eat chili fries?"
