* BaseBreaker: Fandom is split between Cheshire and whether or not she's an assassin who loves her children, or a sociopath who loves them so long as it's useful to her. WordOfGod from Gail Simone has it that she is indeed the latter due to nuking the entire nation of Qurac, though some fans point to her characterization not handled by Simone as the true Cheshire. Though the Qurac bombing was written in the early 1980s long before Gail Simone ever used her, which essentially means Cheshire has been a monster since then.

** Pantha and Baby Wildebeest had received hate and ridicule for being "awful '90s characters" from various fans, although their deaths in Infinite Crisis showed them to be more on the BaseBreaker side, as many other fans decried their horrible fate.

* CompleteMonster: [[BigRedDevil Trigon the Terrible]] is a [[DemonLordsAndArchDevils demonic overlord]] who rules an empire where countless souls are kept in horrible bondage, with those who dare to resist--"resistance" can be defined as "don't do as ordered quick enough"--being ruthlessly exterminated. Trigon wishes to extend his dominion to Earth, and to that end, disguised himself as a handsome human being to impregnate a woman named Arella, revealing his true form and taunting her after. After invading earth, Trigon [[AbusiveParents dominates the soul]] of [[ArchnemesisDad his daughter Raven]] and corrupts her into a monster, forcing her to attack her own world and friends. Trigon's brutality extends to exterminating entire worlds simply to make a lesson. With no redeeming features whatsoever, Trigon, especially in ''ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon'' storyline, is the most terrifying and powerful foe the Teen Titans have ever faced.

**[[ComicBook/DoomPatrol Captain Zahl]] battled the New Teen Titans when he and his army joined Madame Rouge's attempted conquest of Zandia. Under Zahl's direction his men massacred thousands of Zandia's expat inhabitants, and captured the Titans, subjecting them to the horrors of his Devolving Pit.

* GenreBlindness: Robin, comparatively speaking. For the former disciple of the [[MemeticMutation Goddamn]] Batman, this version of Robin falls for the villains' decoys and traps ''very'' often, especially Slade's.

** Starfire criticizes Robin at the end of "Masks" for pretending to be the villain Red X and deceiving his teammates in order to fool Slade. She's portrayed as being in the right. However, Robin makes a good point when you think about it; had they known he was Red X, they almost certainly wouldn't have attacked him convincingly and his cover could have been blown easily (Of course, Slade being DangerouslyGenreSavvy, he knew the entire time who Red X was but Robin's point still stands).

** The high-pitched, male voice randomly screaming out "TEEN TITANS!" at the end of the theme song.

*** The creators wanted to show more of Terra as a Titan, but were hampered by a budget that didn't allow for 6 regular Titans (and voice actors) plus the VillianOfTheWeek for more than 5 episodes. So they did their best by suggesting a longer tenure than what we saw, by showing that mute cameo, plus including a flashback of Terra helping the Titans catch Mumbo in her final episode that season.

* FanonDiscontinuity: While there are numerous examples, one that stands out in particular is the case regarding ''Titans'' #23 by Eddie Berganza, which acted as the final issue before Eric Wallace took over. Primarily a filler issue, it basically rewrote the Fab Five's friendship as a case of Roy being a nuisance they barely put up, while also revealing he had asked Donna to marry him. However, a premonition from Lilith Clay warning Donna that her redheaded husband would die led to Donna turning him down. Also, the Titans apparently knew beforehand about Roy's heroin addiction and once found him strung out in his Speedy costume before Robin told him "get help or get out." This issue blatantly ignored everything about the Fab Five when they were younger and it was clear Eddie Berganza had no idea what he was doing, or most likely it's a case of TheyJustDidntCare since they needed to fill the gap before the new direction. Nearly every fan of the Titans and of the Fab Five choose to pretend this story never happened. It was just that bad.
