** Val-Yor, for being a {{Fantastic Racis|m}}t {{Jerkass}}. Though, considering the episode he debuted in was devoted to condemning racism, he could likely have been a non-supervillain HateSink.

Added DiffLines:

* CommonKnowledge: Thanks to the [[AdaptationDisplacement animated series]] introducing an entire generation to the Teen Titans, many fans will commonly refer to the main five characters used in the show (Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy) as being the "classic" lineup. This despite the fact that this core lineup has ''never actually existed'' outside animation -- the only time all five members were on the team together was in the early Wolfman-Perez era, and even then it had Wonder Girl and Kid Flash on top of that. In reality, the Teen Titans have had [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters dozens of different members]] that would go in and out, and there would be entire runs without any of the "Big Five". Even when DC brought back the Teen Titans to capitalize on the show, the lineup was ''still'' different what it portrayed (It started with Cyborg, Starfire and Beast Boy, and it had a Robin -- but that was Tim Drake, and it also featured Superboy, Kid Flash II, and Wonder Girl II on top of that).

** In ''How Long is Forever?'' Cyborg says that Starfire's friends "Aren't friends anymore," and the villain of the episode, Warp, says that history cannot be changed, so Starfire's friends would still drift apart. Fast forward to WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo, and the [[WithFriendsLikeThis way the Titans act]] can give off the feeling that they aren't friends in the slightest.

** Terra falls into both types. She's ''supposed'' to be a [[AntiVillain morally gray character]], someone who [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds made horrible mistakes because of the pains of her past]], but wasn't pure evil. Instead, she has people vehemently condemning her as [[RonTheDeathEater a purely evil irredeemable psychopath]] and equally vehemently worshipping her as [[DracoInLeatherPants a blameless martyr who deserved far better than she got from the other Teen Titans]].
** On a show to show basis, the show itself when [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo its controversial comedic successor]] is brought into discussion, with detractors of the latter complaining about the lack of continuity, characterization, drama, action, and animation style, in addition to being much more straight up comedic. What they may not realize is that these are very similar to the complaints against this show itself for not existing within the DCAU proper and having a more animesque art style, taking various of liberties with a lot of characters and their depictions and having a more light-hearted and idealistic tone than the comic series it was based off of. The Terra storyline in particular was toned down in terms of both her role and fate.

** After the episode "The Beast Within" a lot of fans could not forgive Robin and to a lesser extent, the other Titans for not only assuming the worst in Beast Boy despite making it clear he is NotHimself but also straight-up threatened the latter to get sent to jail if he could not answer where Raven is which result in Beast Boy transforming into a werewolf again. This is especially considering that they never get called out for not trusting Beast Boy enough and gets away with it.

** Season 4 made a big deal of the fact that Robin and Raven are supposed to have one of the closest relationships of the team, almost surrogate siblings. Except, in the first three seasons, Robin and Raven almost never interact. The best one can say as evidence towards any closeness is the whole "Raven entering Robin's mind after he goes crazy due to Slade's psycho-dust" incident.
** Raven and Beast Boy were always supposed to be purely platonic friends - HeterosexualLifePartners with a male/female duo. Instead, especially in season 3, their interactions come off as almost a SlapSlapKiss type budding romantic relationship, with Raven the {{tsundere}} and Beast Boy the DoggedNiceGuy. It's the biggest reason why they're the top FanPreferredCouple. (WordOfGod says they're supposed to be LikeBrotherAndSister. WordOfGod ALSO says they're supposed to be LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.)

* ShipMates: Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Raven is the most common example. There is also Beast Boy/Terra - Robin/Raven or Robin/Raven - Beast Boy/Starfire, and Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Terra also exists, though probably to a lesser extent. Kid Flash/Jinx is very commonly shipped alongside any of these combinations. Cyborg usually gets paired with Bumblebee, though he is occasionally paired with Jinx, creating another (much, much smaller) battle between Cyborg/Jinx and the (far more popular) [[OfficialCouple Kid Flash/Jinx]]. For a while, Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Terra - [[PairTheSpares Cyborg/Raven]] fics were very common.

It helps that she'd done it twice during the fight with Adonis the night before their confrontation.
** 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 knew the entire time who Red X was but Robin's point still stands.)
** The episode "Spellbound" shows that Raven has genuine worries about not being able to connect with others because of her interests, best exemplified by her reaction to Beast Boy calling her "weird". The viewers are supposed to be sympathetic to Raven about her isolation but most of that is her own doing as she actively refuses to join the others in their fun when offered and makes no attempt to reach out to her friends to address the problem. In fact the other Titans are never seen to be put out by her hobbies, just the fact that she refuses to socialize even a little with them.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: While the results were ultimately good, some fans were still left disappointed in comparison to the original comics, or heck, the main DC universe that had really pushed the bar in terms of animation and overall comic book adaptation. In spite of several serious storylines, there were notable changes made for a more kid friendly show, such as Terra being less of a villain, or BigBad Slade being stripped of any [[AntiVillain sympathetic motivations]], which were all one thing, but the anime-ish pratfalls seemed outright pandering if not outright narm-y.

*** Everything to do with the Doom Patrol, which was introduced in Season Five and introduced a ''huge'' retcon into Beast Boy's history -- Beast Boy had always been rather free-floating as the show's local CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, so the idea that he's actually been a MilitaryBrat [[ToBeLawfulOrGood who would rather save lives than follow orders]] ''the whole time'' is downright bizarre. Even Cyborg and Raven privately muse about it.
