** Tara Markov, Terra of course, isn't exactly a well-liked character. She was the original comic's [[TheMole mole]], and a PsychoForHire who toyed with people's emotions and taunted her former friends.
** Tara's [[spoiler:doppelgänger, previously assumed to be her revived]], Terra II, was more liked, although some fans of the Beast Boy/Raven ship threw potshots at her (until her death). Atlee, the third Terra, managed to become something of a fan favorite due to her supporting role in the ''ComicBook/PowerGirl'' series.

** The Man-Beast form showed up a total of three times during the show's duration, the first two during it's original episode. As a matter of fact, Beast Boy in general got rather short-shrift whenever he wasn't being used for gags. He didn't even have a backstory until the development team needed material for the PostScriptSeason.

** Raven/Beast Boy: These two were always supposed to be purely platonic friends - HeterosexualLifePartners with a male/female duo. Instead, especially in season 3, their interactions came 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.

** And while we're on the subject, can somebody explain the Man-Beast, what it is, how it works, and why [[spoiler:Adonis has one, too]], please. 'Cause the fans certainly aren't in agreement.

** During "The Beast Within" Robin decides to subject Beast Boy to a full police interrogation to figure out what happened to Raven after they disappeared from the tower. Nobody ever brings up how the Titans were one hundred percent willing to assume the worst of him, or how Beast Boy's episode is a blatant example of ThereAreNoTherapists.

*** Beast Boy's history with Terra is one of the most heartbreaking things to happen to the team, and yet he only ever angsts about it when she's relevant to the plot. The rest of the time, there's practically no sign that she had any impact at ''all''.
*** 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.
*** The tie-in comic ''also'' confirms that Garfield's parents died in Africa when he was a little boy. This gets even less treatment than the matter of the Doom Patrol.



*** He also got a spontaneous boost during the fight with Atlas when he's suddenly and inexplicably able to surpass the built-in limits of his hardware.



*** This might, ''might'' at best being key word here, be allusion to the events of [[{{Recap/TeenTitansS3E5Haunted}} Haunted]] wherein she briefly mind-melded with Robin and got a glimpse of his past with the implication being that during this, Robin got to see her past as well. The set up however isn't exactly well executed since that after that sequence they still shared very little meaningful screen time; and comes off like an AssPull anyway as a result.

** Comic-verse Beast Boy's inexorable slide into shallow CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass can largely be traced back to this show.



** Terra is not hated for her betrayal as much as she is hated for getting in between [[FanPreferredCouple Beast Boy and Raven]]. Even though, you know, there was [[WordOfGod nothing there]], except for a bucket full of RelationshipWritingFumble.

** The writing of the season 3 episode ''The Beast Within'' is ''terribly'' inconsistent about what's actually going on, including the question of how much of or even ''whether'' Beast Boy's [[TookALevelInJerkass ugly behavior]] is actually [[FreakOut his]] [[TheCorruption own]] [[PowerIncontinence fault]].
