** ''The Night Begins To Shine'' 4-parter was a TVMovie based on one of the only things most people liked about the show, and that was the ImagineSpot in the episode "40%, 40%, 20%" which was done in a different style from the rest of the show that looked close to the original ''Teen Titans'' cartoon. Unlike most of these examples, this one actually worked, with the final part of said movie [[http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/daily-ratings/friday-cable-ratings-august-4-2017/ being the top scripted show on cable]] the day it aired.

** The show is a spin-off of the original that is meant to cater to a different audience. While it has garnered a large fanbase and consistently pulls in high ratings, it has also alienated most fans of the original show who were expecting a more true revival of the series rather than a purely BlackComedy sitcom as well as fans who feel this show is a ReplacementScrappy for ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. It doesn't help that some of the episodes seemingly [[TakeThatAudience take shots]] at fans of both the original series and those of ''Young Justice''.

** As WebVideo/TheMysteriousMrEnter has pointed out, there are a number of episodes devoted to spiting the show's critics that alienate actual fans of the show, since the viewer would have to be aware of both the original Teen Titans and the criticism leveled at TTG to understand the episode, as well as fiercely disagree with said criticism to not feel insulted by it (and since episodes like "Return of Slade" reinforce that only little kids should be watching the show, it's doubtful that the intended audience would even be aware of either.) The most egregious example is "Finally A Lesson", which spends the majority of it's run dryly explaining the ins and outs of rental property investment, with the only joke being that there are no jokes, all to take a big jab at supposed criticisms that the show doesn't teach any lessons. That also shows the writers' poor understanding of the criticisms lobbed at the show too, as no one was really hating the show for the fact that it doesn't teach lessons. More so, the criticisms are more about how it doesn't stack up to the original show ''at all'' in many ways. The AntiHumor and premise of that episode clearly shows this.

** On the writers side, casting writers from [[WesternAnimation/{{MAD}} a satirical show not afraid to give mean-spirited]] TakeThat jokes is probably not the best one to hire, even for a superhero comedy.

* AccidentalAesop: As [[https://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5596322.html?thread=165179810#cmt165179810 one thread]] in Scans Daily pointed, some viewed "The Return of Slade" as commentary on misguided attempts to reintroduce [[NostalgiaFilter famous products from the past]] with a darker tone in order to draw modern fans.
** However, the reverse can also be true, as a LighterAndSofter approach isn't always the best solution either, as this show continually proves.

* VocalMinority:
** The outcry from fans of the original series is so visible on certain areas of the internet (including this very site) that it is a common assumption to think that it is universally reviled by all outside of young children. In reality, it still possesses a sizable fanbase and a genuine PeripheryDemographic (who aren't as vocal as other such demographics due to constantly being attacked by the hatedom for their perceived tastelessness), with it being a 50/50 split between the detractors.
** In "The Titans Show", after the Titans find out that their entire "Island Adventure" was completely staged, Control Freak tells Robin that the haters of the show are actually only a very small part of the entire viewer base. He shows a pie chart of "Fans" with only about 15% being "Haters". Some, though, consider this to be a [[BlatantLies misguided]] [[TakeThatCritics attempt to downplay the hatedom]], which, as time goes on, has only grown, especially given Cartoon Network's recent practices of airing reruns in long, unbroken blocks with little variety.

*** This probably has more to do with [[AdaptationDisplacement people not being aware of]] ComicBook/TheJudasContract, a storyline from the original comics in which Terra was portrayed from the get-go as a BitchInSheepsClothing instead of the TragicVillain made famous by the show. So ironically, Terra became a [=B-BC=] by going ''back'' to her roots, not further away from them. Although admittedly this Terra [[CompositeCharacter also has some sympathetic and decent qualities too.]]

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: In "Pie Bros", it looks like Robin, Starfire, and Raven have been baked into pies and Cyborg and Beast Boy are eating them. It turns out they escaped and only their hair and clothes were in the pies. [[spoiler:Then again, "Ghost Boy" had the entire cast killed and turned into ghosts, so death is obviously not out of the question for this show.]]
