''Teen Titans Go!'' is a {{comics}} series that ran for 55 issues from 2003 to 2008. It is based on the animated series ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', which ''itself'' is based on [[ComicBook/TeenTitans an older comics series of the same name]]. Like the cartoon, it is {{animesque}} and intended primarily for pre-teen boys, but did not shy away from somewhat darker material as the series progressed. It featured one-shot gags in the page margins presented by [[SuperDeformed chibi]] versions of the cast, as well as continuations or expansions of plotlines from the series. Most issues, however, presented stand-alone plots.

As expected, the series features the Teen Titans: Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Raven, five young [[SuperHero costumed superheroes]], and their adventures in Jump City. Some issues [[ADayInTheLimelight shift the focus onto secondary characters]] such as Larry and Terra, or even villains like the H.I.V.E. graduates, in addition to some characters from the original comics who did not appear in the cartoon, such as Rose Wilson, Geo-Force, and Wonder Girl.

If you're looking for the 2013 semi-revival cartoon, [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo go here.]] It is also not to be confused with the digital comic with the same title based on the revived series, officially termed by DC as ''TTG'' volume 2.

!!Tropes:
* AdaptationDyeJob: Although a minor character that wound up not amounting to anything beyond a cameo, Aquagirl, as opposed to the earlier "Gill Girl" in the run, was greatly revamped when she made her debut. Her hair went from being brown to a deep green, and her blue eyes became gold along with suddenly becoming blue-skinned, having webbed hands and feet, and some gill markings on her face.
* AdaptationExpansion: Backstories, expanded filler, and even post-Season 5 ideas are given deeper detail all throughout the comic's run.
* AllThereInTheManual:
** The name of the city was never stated in [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans the series proper]]. The tie-in comic named the city as "Jump City" and [[{{Fanon}} the fandom took this and ran with it]].
** The comic also confirms that Robin is Dick Grayson. [[SarcasmMode Not that the actual show didn't make that obvious or anything]].
* AlternateUniverse: Issue 48, "Wrong Place, Wrong Time", goes through a few of these in an attempt to get Killowat back to his own world, starting with the world of the [[EvilTwin Teen Tyrants]].
* AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents: Issue 28 has the Doom Patrol sharing a lot of stories from Beast Boy's childhood with the Titans.
* {{Animesque}}
* ArtShift: From issue to issue due to a rotating number of artists.
* AscendedExtra: Remember that goth kid from "Sisters"? He and Raven are dating.
* {{Backstory}}:
** Issue 45 covers Beast Boy and Cyborg (two-parter).
** 46 covers Starfire while also introducing her long-lost brother, Wildfire.
** Half of Issue 47 covers Robin.
** Issue 51, "Metamorphosis", covers Terra and her brother Geo-Force.
* BarefootCartoonAnimal: Gill Girl.
* BaseballEpisode: 33, "The Strangest Sports Story Ever Told". Which, amusingly, features a ShoutOut to the ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' comic with the same plot:
-->'''Raven:''' Please. You got this idea from... some old comic book.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: Beast Boy tells Dr. Light this when Dr. Light [[spoiler:gets electrocuted trying to get Cyborg's battery's power.]]
* BerserkButton: Red Raven, in her self-titled issue 44 (a continuation of 42), attacks and destroys anything having to do with fathers (Founding Fathers display at the museum, Fathers Day gifts at stores, etc.).
* TheBigRace: Kid Flash versus Más y Menos in Issue #34.
* BookEnds: See that cover in the page image? [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/scale_large/1/19859/525792-ttg_55_onlyorko_dcp_001.jpg Here's the cover of the final issue.]]
* BrickJoke: In one of the earlier issues, the Titans comment that Robin once gave a communicator to their mailman. Fast-forward to the issue introducing the Fearsome Five: Robin gives Jinx her communicator while the team comments in the background that he had to ask for it back from the same mailman.
* TheCameo: One of the issues include a cameo by Franchise/{{Batman}} himself, watching the Titans from afar and proud on what Robin has become.
* CanonForeigner: It features some newly-created villains exclusive to this continuity (and who never got to be in the show), such as the Kwiz Kid (a teenage {{Expy}} of the Riddler), Kid Kold and Ice Kate (younger counterparts to the Flash Rogues King Cold and Golden Glider), and the trio of Rock, Paper, and Scissors. There's also Aqualad's friend Gill Girl, who appears to be a cross between Aquagirl and Lagoon Boy.
* CelebrityParadox: Starfire is a fan of ''WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi''. Since the Teen Titans don't have a cartoon for which [[Music/PuffyAmiYumi the band]] recorded the theme, how exactly did they become popular enough in the West to get a cartoon?
* ChristmasEpisode:
** Issue [[RuleOfSymbolism 25]], "Secret Santa".
** 37, "Winterlude", is set the day after Christmas (though probably not the ''same'' Christmas as issue 25), and is narrated poetically in the style of ''Literature/TwasTheNightBeforeChristmas''. Which is a ShoutOut to a similar issue from ''ComicBook/YoungJustice''.
* CityOfAdventure: The city from the series is finally named here: Jump City.
* {{Crossover}}: With ''ComicBook/DialHForHero'' in issue 52. [[spoiler: The Dial's stealing other Titans' powers for Robby to use, instead of granting him whole-new ones, though. Robby gives the dial up once he finds out.]]
* CryingWolf: The effective plot of Issue #2, "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin The Beast Boy Who Cried Wolf]]".
* ADayInTheLimelight: Issue #30 has a story focused on Speedy and Aqualad.
* DistaffCounterpart: Issue 41, "Bad Girls", introduces Pink X, Mad Maud, Joystick, Marionette, and Daughter Blood. [[spoiler:They're all the same girl, though: Killer Moth's daughter Kitten.]]
* EngineeredPublicConfession: The Titans do this to Professor Chang, when he tries to kidnap Lightning and sell him to a Sultan as a fake genie.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Issue 41 and Issue 44 show that Kitten doesn't just use her father, Killer Moth, to get what she wants all the time; she does sincerely love him too.
* ExcitedShowTitle
* {{Expy}}: Ice Kate and Kid Cool are teenage versions of Golden Glider and Captain Cold.
** The Kwiz Kid is basically a younger Riddler, and Gill Girl is a mashup of Aquagirl and Lagoon Boy (an actual version of Aquagirl would later be briefly seen towards the end of the series as an image on a screen, as well as in a chibi gag).
* FishPerson: Gill Girl, who debuts in issue 10 and has a couple of {{Cameo}}s in later issues. She resembles the Film/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon as [[http://i430.photobucket.com/albums/qq21/ulticomicref/Hero/Titans%20Cartoon/GillGirl.jpg a cute teenage girl]].
** The version of Aquagirl seen in issue 50 and the chibis seems to be a less extreme example, falling somewhere between looking like a fish person (with gills, webbed feet and blue skin) and being more humanoid (with her face and hair).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Blackfire's choice of words in the beginning of issue 7 ("You are absolutely priceless, Starfire! This should be rather...''rewarding!'') are early hints on what she ''actually'' plans to do with her sister.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: See NakedPeopleAreFunny below. The naughty bits are blocked, but still.
* GiftOfTheMagiPlot: For Christmas, Beast Boy bought Cyborg stainless steel custom monogrammed hubcaps for the T-car and says they're for the new tires Cyborg just bought. Unfortunately, Cyborg returned those tires and used the money to buy Raven an antique made of genuine petrified wood from the black forest because her books are taking over her room. Ironically, she sold some of her books to buy Starfire a food processor in hopes it'll help her cook better. Cyborg even brings up ''Literature/TheGiftOfTheMagi'' to describe the situation.
* [[GiveHimANormalLife Give Her a Normal Life]]: When Geo-Force finds out whats happened to Terra, he doesn't bother revealing himself to her, noticing it's the first time he's seen her happy. [[spoiler: Terra, spotting and recognizing him, watches as he leaves.]]
* GrievousHarmWithABody: Issue 23 has Control Freak try to hit Cyborg over the head with a dummy arm. Cyborg is not impressed and detaches his own arm to play the game too.
* HumongousMecha: Issue 9 introduces the Titans Go-Bot 5, which the team uses to fight Gizmo's giant robot. It's later used to fight a Professor Chang-controlled Beast Boy, a.k.a Garsaurus Rex.
* ImADoctorNotAPlaceholder: Dr. Light wants Cyborg's battery but doesn't know which part of the latter is it. He says he's a supervillain, not a mechanic.
* InnocentFanserviceGirl: Starfire does not react to ending up naked near the end of the eighth issue and is even oblivious of Cyborg and Robin staring at her with amused grins.
* KnockKnockJoke: Beast Boy occasionally comes up with them.
* LastEpisodeNewCharacter:
** Cassie, a.k.a. Wonder Girl 2, who shows up in the next to last issue of the series. She does get a cameo in the final issue however.
** Flamebird and Mirage also show up as new Titans in cameos in the final issue, although an alternate future version of Mirage appeared in an earlier story (issue 48) and Flamebird had a brief cameo in issue 50, on a screen showing potential new Titans (along with ''GO!'' versions of Azrael,[[note]]The alien "space angel" hero who appeared in an arc of the original New Teen Titans comic, not to be mistaken with the '90s anti-hero of the same name[[/note]] Aquagirl, and Golden Eagle, who otherwise never got roles in the series). Two Titans named "Soldier Boy" and "Soldier Girl" also cameo in the final story.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall: In ''"Magic and Misdirection"'', Mumbo opens a trap door that makes Beast Boy fall out of the panel. Starfire and Terra follow, and we're treated to a few pages of them wandering around the borders of the page while SuperDeformed.
* LegacyCharacter: An interesting variation: issue 54, "Makes You Wonder", features Cassie Sandsmark attemping to usurp Donna Troy's position as Wonder Girl.
* LensmanArmsRace: Issue #9 has one of these happen between Cyborg and Gizmo, with Fixit presiding.
* LightBulbJoke: Mumbo Jumbo asks "How many magicians does it take to change a lightbulb?" and answers "Depends what you want it changed to!"
* LotusEaterMachine: 38, "It's a Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod World."
* MagicSkirt: Weirdly disregarded for Issue #20; turns out Blackfire wears shorts under her skirt.
* MarsNeedsWomen: Or rather [[MadScientist Braboldian scientists]] [[MarsNeedsWomen want]] [[StockSuperpowers super powered]] [[MarsNeedsWomen females]] [[ForScience for their experiments]]; Issue #36, "Troy."
* McNinja: At least one movie of the Super Ninja Fury movie series Cyborg and Beast Boy watch features Canadian ninjas.
* MesACrowd: "Pieces of Me:" Raven's "emoticlones" are let loose by accident, and several of them run amuck throughout the city.
* MythologyGag:
** Issue #18 has Larry put the Titans "all back the way you should be:"
*** Starfire acquires her mainstream version's hair and exclaims "X'Hal!"
*** Beast Boy gets his old Doom Patrol costume.
*** Robin gets an older version of his costume. [[UnderwearOfPower With no real pants.]]
*** Raven gets a [[LampshadeHanging lampshade]] hung on her more goth like appearance.
** There's also the Terror Titans of Issue #48, three of whom are Red Robin, Arsenal, and Tempest -- the same names used by certain older versions of Robin, Speedy, and Aqualad. As their team name indicates, they're decidedly twisted versions.
** That same issue features Raven opening doors to various alternate realities, including the original flavor ''Teen Titans'' from the Silver Age, and in a blink and you'll miss it peek, Secret and Lobo of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice.''
** In Issue #39, a Valentine's Day issue, Speedy and Cheshire get hit by an arrow, and fall in love. In the comics, they briefly fell in love, and had a child together.
** The 36th issue has Robin work together with Speedy, Aqualad, Kid Flash, and Wonder Girl. In the original comics, they were the members of the first Teen Titans.
* NakedPeopleAreFunny: ''[[UpToEleven Everyone in Jump City]]'' (except Robin, Raven, and Cyborg) is naked by the end of issue eight. ItMakesSenseInContext.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: According to the Wildfire issue, Blackfire has sold off Starfire to the Gordanians, to keep them from invading Tamaran. Watching the episode "Go!" from the main cartoon shows how well this turned out.
* NotSoStoic: Stylistic choice here, but a lot of the more humorous issues feature Raven being happy and laughing alongside the other Titans, without any outside influence.
* PoorCommunicationKills: More like Poor Communication is Painful: The plot of Issue #6 "Storm" stems from Lightning fighting Thunder because the former misheard the latter as insulting him.
* PowersAsPrograms: How the Master of Games' amulet treats all powers; in Issue #24, a plot by Katarou leads to the gem being broken and the five Titans' powers swapped between each other.
* RaceLift: Although a minor example (as the series was cancelled before he or others could be developed), the cameo of Golden Eagle falls under this. In the original comics, he's a blond Californian teenager. In ''Go!,'' he's revamped to be an Egyptian boy, probably to tie him better into the original Hawkman mythology.
* TheReveal:
** Issue #16 has a pretty big surprise for the Titans, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny especially Beast Boy.]] [[spoiler: The child Starfire has been spending the day with at the mall, trying to help him find his parents? He's their ally ''Wildebeest!'']]
** The first half of Issue #47, "Regarding Robin," reveals without a doubt, that Robin is in fact [[spoiler: Dick Grayson.]]
** According to "Metamorphosis," [[spoiler: the schoolgirl ''is'' Terra. [[BigBrotherInstinct Geo-Force can tell]].]]
** [[spoiler: Ravager, a.k.a. Rose Wilson (''Slade's daughter'') appears and attacks the Titans, then joins them.]] It makes you wonder what Season 6 might have been like...
* [[RiseOfZitboy Rise of Zitgirl]]: Raven in Issue #5, "Monster Zit."
* SecondaryAdaptation: Comicbook/TeenTitans Comic -> WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Cartoon -> This Comic
* SecretLegacy: Terra, [[spoiler: as it turns out she's a princess of a kingdom.]]
* ShipTease: Between Beast Boy and Raven.
* ShipperOnDeck:
** Starfire pretty vocally ships Cyborg / Sarah Simms, playing Cupid for them, and arranging their date in the Valentine's issue of ''Teen Titans Go!'' (#27).
** Robin takes Starfire on a date in Issue #4, with Beast Boy and Cyborg, following along to annoy him with advice.
** Issue #39 has Larry playing this for a ''lot'' of the Titans, and even steals Eros's [[LovePotion arrows]] to make them real.
* ShoutOut:
** Riddle in Issue #9 says "[[Film/WarGames A game in which only winning move is not to play.]] What am I?"
** In Issue #20, we can see that Speedy's handle in multiplayer games is "Shaft," which is also the name of Speedy's {{expy}} from ComicBook/{{Youngblood}}.
** The artist tends to cram in tons of references to ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000.''
** Starfire is a fan of Music/PuffyAmiYumi and their [[WesternAnimation/HiHiPuffyAmiYumi cartoon series]]. (J. Torres worked as an animator on the show.)
** Issue #25 has a ''Literature/TheGiftOfTheMagi'' reference during the Titans' Secret Santa and Cyborg even calls the story by name.
** In Issue #29, Cyborg mumbles "Rassmfrassmstarfire" in a similar way to ''[[WesternAnimation/DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines Muttley grumbling about Dick Dastardly]]''.
** Issue #33 has a ''WesternAnimation/PinkyAndTheBrain'' reference.
-->'''Mallah:''' Okay, you ween! Zat plan deedn't work, but you must admit zat it was an amusing distraction... So, what are we going to do tomorrow night, Brain?
-->'''Brain:''' The same thing we do every night, Mallah... Try to take down the Teen Titans!
** During a race in Issue #34, Kid Flash makes ''[[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner "Beep Beep"]]''.
* SnapBack: There are stories that clearly take place ''after,'' the fifth and final season of the show, and yet nearly every villain in the show's run was frozen in the end.
* SpannerInTheWorks:
** Larry and his hare-brained Shipping scheme does this a lot to the Titan's attempts to stop Andre Leblanc in Issue #39.
** In Issue #51, Phobia would've gotten away of trapping the Titans inside their worst nightmares, [[spoiler: if not for Silkie hitting the Tower's wake-up alarm.]]
* SparedByTheAdaptation: An interesting example is given in the issue explaining the origins of Cyborg and Beast Boy. Cyborg's origin establishes that his mother is still alive and helped his father fit their son with his robotic parts even though she was killed in the same accident that injured her son in the original comics and is implied to be deceased in the animated series this comic book is based on.
* SuperDeformed: Other than the margin gags, there's also Issue #18: "When Chibis Attack." Raven even explicitly refers to their tiny counterparts as "chibi."
* TakeThatAudience: In "Stupid Cupid," Raven remarks on how all the "shipping" is stupid, after Larry attempts to pair up all the Titans with each other. Depending on the fan, they might have either liked it, hated it, or felt indifferent.
* TimeyWimeyBall: In Issue #31, a villain changes Robin's past to become his mentor and the other titans are helped by Good!Robin's future self a.k.a. Nightwing. During the epilogue, Beast Boy wonders how that Nightwing could exist at the same time as Bad!Robin and Raven handwaves it by saying they don't fully understand how TimeTravel works.
* TookALevelInJerkass: Raven is a bit snarkier than she is in the animated series, most notably ranting on how pointless she considers such times of year as Valentine's Day and Halloween, even belittling her friends for expressing their enjoyment of the holidays.
* TwoWordsAddedEmphasis: This line from Beast Boy when he and Cyborg are discussing two Super Ninja Fury movies and arguing over which one is better.
-->'''Beast Boy:''' Two words, Cyborg: Canadian ninjas.
* WholePlotReference: One story is one for [[WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries Almost Got 'Im,]] [[spoiler: complete with UndercoverCopReveal.]]
