''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' features plenty of {{Shout Out}}s. Here's the list:
* There are many references to ''Anime/{{FLCL}}'' and ''Anime/BattleOfThePlanets'', as Glen Murakami's a fan of both.
** You could even argue that the entire style of the show itself is loosely based upon FLCL and it's stylization.
* "257-494" ("Don't Touch That Dial") is pretty much twenty-two minutes of references. They even got in the ''Franchise/StarWars Kid'' Most notably, the climax is an extended parody of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''..
* "Fear Itself" is the introduction of Control Freak, as well as some awesome ''Star Wars'' and ''Franchise/StarTrek'' references. Not only is Control Freak's sole reason for attacking a video rental store because he found out that they had not made 'Warp Trek 5'(with the original cast from the TV show!) one of their top suggested movies to rent, starring an alien with pointy ears, the sound his remote makes is the same sound the transporter makes. He even calls the salesgirl a tribble! He then goes on to assure that although the Teen Titans are not afraid of him, they will be soon by quoting Yoda.
* Look hard at Thunder and Lightning's style, their artwork resembles OsamuTezuka era Anime character models, and for that matter, look at how stylized the episode in general was, if I recall, when Beast Boy lectures Thunder for the second time, it looks similar to Japanese Mythology (Appropriate, considering how the designs and mannerisms of Thunder and Lightning resemble Japanese legends), and the end of the episode, look at the horizon, it's ''also'' very stylized.
* In "Winner Take All", the background music bears a distinct resemblance to ''Franchise/MortalKombat'''s theme. Granted it's [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong not exactly the same]], but the influence is there.
* In "[[EitherOrTitle Bunny Raven, or How to Make a Titananimal Disappear]]", among other shout-outs (including a JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf shtick), there's a shout-out to "Yes! We Have No Bananas", a part of a -- what else? -- 20s Broadway revue.
* In "For Real", Control Freak's HackerCave contains [[Film/TheMatrix multiple computer screens with]] MatrixRainingCode.
* In "How Long Is Forever?", the punks tormenting Beast Boy have similar designs to the [[Comicbook/TheDarkKnightReturns Mutants]]. Coincidence?
* Beast Boy briefly turns into [[Franchise/StarWars Chewbacca]] in "Stranded". Then later carries Cyborg as if he were C-3PO!
* Immediately after the Chewbacca shout-out, he turns Cyborg into Manga/GiantRobo (and himself into Daisaku Kusama)!
* Watch just after the first commercial break in "Fractured"; Larry turns Robin's arm into [[Franchise/EvilDead a chainsaw.]]
* Possibly jumping the line between homage and plagiarism, the episode "Car Trouble" copies the ''entire'' minutes long chase scene from ''Anime/TheCastleOfCagliostro'', down to the level of detail visible in each shot.
* In "Betrothed", the scene where Robin yells Starfire's name through a glass window is very reminiscent of ''Film/TheGraduate''.
* "The Prophecy" has Slade stopping time using the same visual effect as the ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' [=OAVs=].
* What about the fact that ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' made a parody of the show? Then not long after, in "Stranded", Beast Boy accidentally rebuilt Cyborg as a chicken? Even funnier when you know that the creators of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' have credited Cyborg as the basis for their Chicken design.
* The inside of Kitten and Killer Moth's house is suspiciously similar to the house from ''Series/TheBradyBunch''.
** Inside?!? Suspiciously?? There's a shot of the outside, and yes, it's very much Series/TheBradyBunch house, right down to the landscape in the back.
* "Mad Mod" features a plethora of shoutouts; including the Sea of Holes from ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', [[ScoobyDoobyDoors a door sequence]] ripped straight out of ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'', mind-boggling paintings by Creator/MCEscher and mind control devices not entirely unlike the ones used in ''Film/AClockworkOrange''.
** Robin's discovery of the real appearance of TheChessmaster, Mad Mod, is a shoutout to the ''Anime/CowboyBebop'' episode "Bohemian Rhapsody" [[spoiler: where the BigBad is found to be a decrepit old man playing chess.]]
* "Revolution" has several ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' references, including: shrill old women discussing shopping, the Terry Gilliam look of the illusions he uses, and, of course, [[GiantFootOfStomping a giant foot]] crushing all of the team except Robin.
** It is also a constant reference to the "[[Music/TheBeatles Eleanor Rigby]]" segment of ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'': The newspaper cutouts which replace the city mirror those used for Liverpool.
*** Further [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] shout outs include an AbbeyRoadCrossing, a chase scene resembling ''Film/AHardDaysNight'', Mod's outfit turning into [[WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine a Blue Meanie costume]], and Mod [[RushmoreRefacement carving the Fab Four's faces onto Mt. Rushmore.]]
* The opening scene of "Masks" parallels the cave scene of ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
* The design of [[http://media.comicvine.com/uploads/0/9116/263886-107891-red-x_super.jpg Red X]] is very similar in tone, motif, and look to [[http://kofplayer.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/skullman.jpg?w=510 Skull Man.]] It's a bit tough to call, though. ''Manga/SkullMan'' does predate this show by a lot, but that specific design didn't come until the 2007 version by Series/{{Bones}}.
* Brain's robot body and voice in "Homecoming" suspiciously similar to that of a [[Series/DoctorWho Dalek.]]
** This was intentional, funnily enough.
** In "Calling All Titans" he says "Shall we play a game?" possibly referencing ''Film/WarGames''
* In "The End, Part. II", Robin and Slade [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion both dance like they want to win]].
* In the last episode of the fifth season, "Things Change", a kid who resembles Napoleon from ''Film/NapoleonDynamite'' is also attending Terra's school and can be seen passing by in front of the camera in a few scenes, notably in the library and at the end of the episode in the hallway.
** Adding to this is the fact that, in the school's hallways, posters reading "Vote for Pedro" can be seen.
* In the new short "Movies" Control Freak is painted as a Navi from ''Film/{{Avatar}}'' riding a mecha suit from either the same movie or ''Film/{{Aliens}}'', which appears to be the movie the Titans are watching.
* The computer virus Cyborg is infected with in "Crash" is clearly Keramon, the baby form of the BigBad of the second ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'' movie, ''Bokura no Wargame''.
* The title of the first Raven-centric episode, "Nevermore", is a reference to the famous Creator/EdgarAllanPoe poem Literature/TheRaven.
* Ho boy. In the ''New Teen Titans'' short "Turn Back The Clock", Mad Mod is turning back time with a red [[Series/DoctorWho TARDIS]]. As time goes backwards, the teams' costumes go through their previous iterations from the comics, including pants-less Robin and Stripperific Starfire. When they reach the 70's, they get the costumes from the Franchise/ScoobyDoo gang, complete with B.B. Snacks[[note]](This also dual wields as another shout out - there WAS no Teen Titans in the 70's!)[[/note]] When Robin cranks time forward too far, he's turned into "Robin the ''[[RobotKid Toy]]'' Wonder" from ''ComicBook/DCOneMillion''; the other four titans are replaced with the futuristic heroes of ''Titans: Scissors, Paper, Stone''[[note]](an {{Elseworld}}s series by Comicbook/{{Empowered}} author Adam Warren)[[/note]], with the designs done by the series' character designer Derrick Wyatt [[http://derrickjwyatt.blogspot.com/2006/08/titans-scissors-paper-stone.html for fun in 2006]] (which helps explain why "Witchie-Poo" [[SelfPlagiarism looks remarkably like]] a post-upgrade [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated Sari Sumdac]][[note]](Another series with designs by Wyatt[[/note]]).
** Not to mention the opening animation of the sun & Big Ben is straight from ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine''.
** The ending animation where Mad Mod is having trouble keeping up with the conveyor belt is reminiscent of the ending credits from ''WesternAnimation/TheJetsons''.
* At one point during "Transformation" the T-Ship gets eaten ''by a planet'', and the Titans then escape in a manner reminiscent of the asteroid escape from ''Film/TheEmpireStrikesBack''.
* At one point in the episode "Sum of His Parts", Robin's 'locator' sounds literally identical to the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''' communicator. And, to cast aside any doubt, it looks oddly similar, too.
* In "Wavelength", turns out that Cyborg [[WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck doesn't like being called Sparky.]]
* Killer Moth's desgin seems to be a cross between a Franchise/KamenRider and the Orphnoch King from ''Series/KamenRiderFaiz''.
** His daughter's boyfriend, Fang, meanwhile, has a spider for a head and wears a motorcycle jacket, resembling Spider from ''Film/KamenRiderTheFirst''.
* Melvin, the little girl from ''Hide and Seek'', not only has hair similar to [[Manga/AzumangaDaioh Chiyo-Chan]], but [[ExpressiveHair expresses her emotions]] in the same way.
* In "Employee of the Month", Robin's new flight suit looks a lot like [[Anime/ScienceNinjaTeamGatchaman Ken the Eagle's outfit]], right down to the beak-shaped visor, though in Robin's colors.
* In "Deception", Cyborg's Stone identity resembles a young black man with a silver tiara and metal bracelets. So basically, a teen version of LukeCage.
* In ''The End Part III,'' Beast-Boy is fighting his own evil side. BB turns into a T-Rex, the evil side turns [[JurassicPark into a spinosaurus]]
