''Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo'' is a [[MadeForTVMovie made-for-TV]] [[TheMovie movie]] based on the popular 2003-2006 AnimatedSeries ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'', produced for Creator/CartoonNetwork by WarnerBros animation. It was the last original ''Teen Titans'' material to air on Cartoon Network before the show went into reruns.

After Titans Tower is nearly destroyed by a {{sentai}}-esque, paint-themed assailant, apparently for no reason, the Teen Titans decide to get to the root of the problem and head for Japan, where they believe the villain came from. Once there, they hear word of a fantastic underworld figure named Brushogun, who may be behind the unexplained attack...even though a team of Japanese troopers whose job it is to keep Tokyo safe from threats too great for the regular police insist that such a person is nothing but folklore and doesn't really exist. Discouraged, the Teen Titans put the matter aside and explore the city, until, unexpectedly, an attack by a group of bizarre monsters leads them to believe that there may be much more to the Brushogun "myth" than they have been told.

----
!!This movie contains examples of:
* AlmostKiss: Twice, between Robin and Starfire.
* AffectionateParody: One of Japanese kids' shows/films from yesteryear, such as ''Anime/AstroBoy'' and ''SpiritedAway''.
* AndIMustScream: [[spoiler:Brushogun under Daizo's imprisonment.]]
* {{Animesque}}: ''You don't say.''
* {{Animeland}}: In more of a Satire/Parody Sense.
* ArtAttacker / ArtInitiatesLife: Brushogun's ability.
* AttackOfThe50FootWhatever: The team faces this twice: [[{{Kaiju}} once when first arriving]], and again as the climactic finalbattle.
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler:Brushogun sending the first Saico-Tek against the Titans to lure them to Tokyo.]]
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler:Brushogun]]'s origin.
* BigBad: Brushogun [[spoiler:turns out to simply be a prisoner being used by the ''real'' BigBad Commander Daizo.]]
* TheBigDamnKiss: [[spoiler: Robin and Starfire]] finally get theirs, after four seasons of the show's ShipTease but not until [[LastMinuteHookup the last few minutes of the movie]].
* BilingualBonus: Nya-Nya, the pink-ink {{Catgirl}}, never speaks a word of English in either of her forms.
** ''"Otaku"'' is the Japanese equivalent of "geek"...not cute, which Beast Boy seems to think it means.
** ''"Nya-nya"'' translates to "meow-meow".
** During the battle, when Nya-Nya is riding pterodactyl-BB:
-->'''Nya-Nya:''' I love to hurt cute little animals. I look forward to tormenting you.
** After kissing BB on the cheek:
-->'''Nya-Nya''' Close your eyes. This will hurt.
** With the poster image above, yes, those are the Titans' names in katakana.
* BrickJoke: Super Twinkle Donkey Gum.
* TheCameo: Aqualad briefly appears as the Titans fly over the Pacific.
* TheChewToy: Beast Boy.
* ClearMyName: [[spoiler:After Robin seems to accidentally kill Saiko-Tek.]]
* CoolShades: Robin, when he impersonates a Japanese street tough.
** Combined with BadassLongcoat.
* TheCuckoolanderWasRight: When Saiko-tek somehow totally vanishes right in front of Robin after kicking open the sprinkler systems, Beast Boy jokingly suggest that he "just wasn't waterproof". As it turns out, [[spoiler:he was made out of paint]], so he really ''wasn't!''
** When the gang first arrives in Tokyo, the one place Beast Boy really wants to visit is a comic book factory. [[spoiler:Wouldn't you know it, that's where the BigBad's hideout is.]]
* ConservationOfNinjutsu: The Titans have a hell of a time defeating [[spoiler: the first]] Saico-tek. Robin then faces [[spoiler: the second]] Saico-tek one-on-one evenly, while the others get [[CurbStompBattle curbstomped]] in their respective one-on-one fights. [[spoiler: At the end, they're taking out hoards of the same enemies at once.]]
* DarkLordOnLifeSupport: The villain basically creates an ink army: [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brushogun2_1655.jpg this]]. [[spoiler:He gets defeated and the BiggerBad takes over]].
* DarkSkinnedBlond: A ganguro features as part of Beast Boy's UnwantedHarem.
* DerangedAnimation: Bits of it within the movie.
* DistressBall: Starfire. She actually forgets that ''she can fly'' and has to be snatched out of the air mid-drop by Robin, who has no super-powers. Ironically, one fan once remarked on a forum that if such a thing ever happened she would be called out on it, as it would be an obvious ploy to attract Robin's attention. Instead it was played painfully straight.
* DopeSlap: Raven does this to Beast Boy in the end, just before the credits.
* EatThat: The Chef, trying to discourage Cyborg from eating everything in his restaurant.
* [[spoiler:FakeUltimateHero: Commander Daizo]], a major plot point.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Saico-Tek uses pair of ''jitte'', a weapon commonly associated with [[spoiler:the police.]]
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: During the GratuitousEnglish karaoke scene, Beast Boy morphs into a number of animals. He turns into an octopus--while striking the classic "seduction on a bed" pose. Yes. You read it right. They had the balls to put in a tentacle rape reference. Just wow.
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In addition to the usual ones of Starfire and Raven, [[spoiler:Brushogun]] toward the end as [[spoiler:Daizo forces him to use his powers.]]
* IndecisiveParody: Tokyo.
* JackassGenie[=/=]DealWithTheDevil
* {{Kaiju}}: The first threat the Titans encounter in Tokyo, eventually beaten by the Troopers.
** This was obviously intended to be a Franchise/{{Godzilla}} [[CaptainErsatz stand-in]], but actually resembled Film/{{Gorgo}} more.
* KaraokeBox: Beast Boy during the movie, and the whole cast during the end credits. The [[BlindIdiotTranslation lyrics]] are due to RuleOfFunny.
* LastMinuteHookup: After endless [[ShipTease teasing]] in the series, [[spoiler:Robin and Starfire finally kiss]] at the end of the movie.
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler:Commander Uehara Daizo]]
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: [[spoiler:Brushogun]]
* MechaMooks: Well, technically [[spoiler:magic-ink-construct mooks, but still...]]
* MomentKiller: [[spoiler:Robin ruins the first moment himself. The second time Robin and Starfire are just about to kiss, the rest of the Titans walk in and interrupt ''that'' moment.]] Funnily enough, they don't seem to suspect a thing.
* TheMovie: ''What do you think?''
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: [[spoiler:Robin]] does this to one of the ink {{Mooks}} which [[spoiler:leads to his imprisonment]]. May come off as NightmareFuel to some because the atmosphere was so tense, and then it gets to you: [[spoiler:Robin actually starts to look like the criminal]] to both the police's AND THE VIEWER'S EYES.
* OccidentalOtaku: Beast Boy
* OfficialCouple: [[spoiler:Robin and Starfire]]. About time.
* [[spoiler:OneWingedAngel: Commander Daizo jumps into his magic printer, fusing himself with Brushogun's magic and turning himself into a gigantic ink monster.]]
* OrbitalKiss
* PaletteSwap: The villain summoned several Palette Swapped copies of previously created villains for the final battle.
* PluckyComicRelief: Beast Boy of course.
* {{Portmanteau}}: Brushogun is a combination of the English "brush" and the Japanese "shogun".
* PummelingTheCorpse: Robin to the first Saico-Tek, though subverted as it's not exactly a 'corpse'.
* RelationshipUpgrade: [[OfficialCouple Take a wild guess.]]
* SceneryPorn: The cityscapes of Tokyo are very pretty.
* ShoutOut: There are tons of them for Japanese pop culture.
** The blob monster that attacks Raven resembles No-Face from ''SpiritedAway''.
** Mecha-Boi is...[[Anime/AstroBoy do I really need to say it?]]
*** His blue color scheme indicates...VideoGame/MegaMan?
*** His stocky stature resembles [[ComicBook/TheBigGuyAndRustyTheBoyRobot Rusty]] as opposed to Anime/AstroBoy's more slender figure.
** [[spoiler: Uehara Daizo]] throws himself into a machine, similar to the Joker's origin, albeit an intentional version.
** Commander Uehara Daizo closely resembles ''Franchise/LupinIII'''s famous Inspector Zenigata.
** Kaneda and Yamagata from Manga/{{Akira}} appear in a crowd scene watching a sumo match.
*** The bike Robin "borrows" has taillights that leave momentary after-images, just like Kaneda's bike.
** Saico-Tek is similar in design to numerous {{Kamen Rider}}s, and his split-down-the-middle color scheme resembles {{Kikaider}}.
** The yellow robot that fights Cyborg is noticeably similar to [[MazingerZ Boss Borot]]
** Nya-Nya is based on the Puma sisters from ''DominionTankPolice''
** A little less noticeable, but the story of how Brushogun and the ink monsters came to be is terribly similar to the Painter who tried to use ink dissolved with a Shikon Fragment to create his own personal version of the Hime that he was in love with in chapters 56-58 of the Manga/InuYasha manga. [[spoiler:Inuyasha defeats him, though.]] The other similarity is that [[spoiler:whenever one of his Ink Oni are killed they collapse in an explosion of ink, blood and guts, much like Brushogun did when killed by the Titans...minus the blood and guts.]]
** Raven becoming a spokeswoman for Super Twinkle Donkey Gum mirrors [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_celebrity_advertising the practice of hiring American actors to star in Japanese commercials]].
* ShipSinking: Raven/Beast Boy, according to some.
** This is not as definitive as the obvious sinking of Robin/Raven, however.
* SympatheticInspectorAntagonist: [[spoiler: Subverted.]]
* TokyoIsTheCenterOfTheUniverse: ''Duh!''
* TonightSomeoneKisses: [[spoiler:Robin and Starfire]]
* UnwantedHarem: ''Beast Boy'' gets one of these. At first it's subverted in that he has no qualms about being CoveredInKisses, then it's played straight when it becomes apparent his new fangirls won't let him leave.
** They're quite clingy in an almost {{Yandere}} sort of way.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: Robin [[WhatTheHellHero gets called out on this]] after he apparently killed a villain [[spoiler: though the villain was made of ink]]:
-->'''Robin''': He wasn't human.
--> '''Inspector''': Neither are most of your friends.
* WillTheyOrWontThey
* YouFailGeographyForever: Beast Boy, in-context. "When do we see the Great Wall?"
** Also, [[http://www.tokyotower.co.jp/english/ Tokyo Tower]] is white and orange, not some shade of blue. And it would be lit up at night.
* YouSquared: a variation occurs in this exchange:
--> '''Cyborg and Beast Boy''': *Screeching halt* Who's chasing you?!?
--> '''Beast Boy''': Girls!
--> '''Cyborg''': [[ItMakesSenseInContext Chefs!]]
* YourMom: Robin yells "Hey! Over here! Your mother was a salamander!" to a giant, [[spoiler:ink-created]] Godzilla-like monster in order to distract it from Starfire.
