** At the end of the theme song, to go along with the anime influences and the fact that Ami Yumi are the singers of the theme song, at the end the count to 5, but instead of saying "five," they say "go" at the end. This flies over the heads of those who don't know Japanese where [[DontExplainTheJoke "five" translates to "go"]] in their native language.

*** In the episode "Nevermore", the various parts of her psyche wear different colored robes to match that aspect. Pink is happy, gray is timid, and green is brave.

Pink is happy, a happy GenkiGirl who thinks Beast Boy's jokes are ActuallyPrettyFunny, gray is timid, a timid NervousWreck who ApologisesALot and green is brave.a brave, HotBlooded BoistrousBruiser. Brief glimpses at two other sides of her, yellow and orange, apparently represent her intelligence (complete with a pair of [[SmartPeopleWearGlasses glasses]]) and her rudeness (upon arriving, orange burps).

Based on [[Comicbook/TeenTitans the classic DC comic]] (mostly the 1980s incarnation by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, but with differences), with a generous dose of [[{{Animesque}} anime influence]] thrown in, ''Teen Titans'' features the adventures of five young superheroes:

Added DiffLines:

* InNameOnly: Aside from the fact that the series had adapted many of the plot lines that originated from the comics (although with only ''some'' fidelity towards the events that have occurred in the comics), ''Teen Titans'' has virtually nothing in common with the original 1980s comic book series mainly through the many differences between the heroes and villains in the comics and their cartoon incarnations and the fact that the origins, the physical appearances, and (occasionally) the powers of the characters in the animated series are profoundly different than that of the original comic book series that the series was adapted from which, despite its title, depicted the Titans as being in their 20s (at one point the comic series even dropped the Teen from the title as it had become apparent they weren't anymore).
** However, this series was an example of [[TropesAreTools Tropes Are Not Bad]] through the fact that it served the role as the introduction to the Teen Titans for many younger watchers (or those who just don't read comics).

*** The episode also breaks in the opposite direction, because it insists the Tamaraneans in particular are victims of mindless bigotry from other planets' cultures. The problem with this understanding is that the Tamaraneans are a NobleSavage ProudWarriorRace comprised of {{Flying Brick}}s that are immune to the freezing cold vacuum of space; their bellicose tendencies are so ingrained that a later episode "Go!" indicates that the closest word Tamaraneans have to "Nice" is actually translated "Weak". So the Tamaraneans are an astonishingly powerful ProudWarriorRace... that everybody else picks on for absolutely no reason, because they're all just ''jerks''.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Often going hand-in-hand with MartialArtsDoNotWorkThatWay.
** The show will often forget Robin should not hit as hard as Cyborg or Starfire.
** Cyborg's sonic cannon operates largely on the premise that the audience doesn't know how sonic waves work and treats it as a heavy-duty laser blaster.



* CainAndAbel: Starfire and Blackfire, who still look like a parallel of Queens Elizabeth and Mary Tudor, even though Glen Murakami admits that they watered down the ''much'' more intense rivalry of [[ComicBook/TeenTitans the original comics]] into a more kid-friendly, "''Series/IDreamOfJeannie''/''Series/{{Bewitched}}'' kind of way." If you're even slightly familiar with the comics, you'll know what he's [[http://www.titanstower.com/blackfire/ talking about]].

* BookDumb: Beast Boy.

to:

* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: TheMovie apparently ''wants'' to do this with Beast Boy and Raven (because ''Japan''), but fails to understand pacing, which left a lot of fans with the impression that Raven was mean-spiritedly picking on Beast Boy.
* BookDumb: Beast Boy.Boy, who in one episode practically admitted to learning history from the back of a cereal box.



** Earlier in that episode he practically admitted to learning history from the back of a cereal box when Raven asked.
