[[caption-width-right:350:[-Left to right: Palmer, Jodi, Sasha, Willie, and Leon-] ]]

-> '''Palmer:''' Jodi! Check your watch!
-> '''Jodi''': Huh?
-> '''Palmer''': What time is it?
-> '''Jodi:''' Um, it's about three-forty--
-> '''Palmer:''' TIME TO PUNCH THE FUCK OUT OF IT!

What would happen if the cast of ''{{Voltron}}'' [[ThisIsYourPremiseOnDrugs started drinking, went on a binge, and pretty much threw up acid all over the place]]? Well, that depends on who caught it all on tape -- and in the case of '''''Titan Maximum''''', the fine folks who gave us ''RobotChicken'' ended up doing just that.

In the future, mankind has colonized the entire solar system, including Saturn. Saturn's moon, Titan, needed protection during its war against Mars -- and to that end, it created Titan Maximum, a CombiningMecha which serves as its last, best line of defense for Titan's capital. While Titan Maximum's pilots ([[JerkJock egocentric and narcissistic]] '''Palmer'''; ParodySue '''Jodi'''; [[AlphaBitch stuck up]] '''Sasha'''; [[TheSmartGuy plan man]] '''Gibbs'''; and TheBigGuy, '''Spuds''') never saw eye-to-eye with each other, they always managed to get the job done. After budget cuts, the team -- who all but hated each other by the end -- went their separate ways.

Years later, most of Titan Force Five find themselves failing at civilian life: Palmer hangs out at bars trying to pick up chicks; Jodi fights just a ''little'' too hard while juggling charity work; Sasha spends most of her time at dance clubs trying to become a popstar (between bouts of binge drinking and ''lots'' of meaningless sex); and Spuds fell off a balcony during a party and died.

What happened to Gibbs? During a televised interview, Gibbs reveals what he plans to do: "conquer the Solar System, crush all who oppose [him], and name [himself] 'Super King Big Nuts'."

The three remaining members of Titan Force Five reassemble to fight Gibbs and his new evil compatriots -- and since they need to replace Spuds and Gibbs, they round out the team with '''Willie''', Palmer's rather overeager yet technically-brilliant younger brother (who graduated as an [[MrFixit engineer]] -- from [=DeVry=]), and '''Leon''', the [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys surly monkey]] who worked as janitor of the team's abandoned base. Once the ''new'' Titan Force Five manages to get Titan Maximum working again, they become the solar system's best hope of stopping Gibbs -- but their dysfunctional teamwork and clashing personalities also make them a danger to pretty much everyone else, including their commanding officer, Admiral Bitchface.

Despite powerhouse ratings when it first aired (it often beat out new episodes of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers'', Creator/AdultSwim's most popular original series), Seth Green halted all production on the show to focus on his [[MoneyDearBoy self-admitted]] CashCowFranchise, ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' -- even though he wasn't a creator or producer, and Matthew Senreich said he had enough material for "maybe ten seasons" of the show [[http://www.adultswim.com/shows/titan-maximum/extras/interview/matt-senreich-titan-maximum-interview.html in an interview]].
----
!!''Titan Maximum'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AffectionateParody: They say the HumongousMecha genre, but ''{{Voltron}}'' is the obvious target.
** There's also a lot of tiny shout outs to the [[CombattlerV Nagahama]] [[VoltesV Romance]] [[{{Daimos}} Trilogy]]. That, and Gibbs looks just like CaptainHarlock.
* AllThereInTheManual: Gibbs's full name is Gibson Giberstein, [[AvertedTrope avoiding]] the LastNameBasis problem Palmer has. There is ZERO mention of this throughout any of the 9 episodes of the entire first season, and he goes by Gibbs anyway...or [[LargeHam Super King Big Nuts]], whichever you prefer.
** Also that the Earth has gone through "troubles".
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Willie.
* AnythingThatMoves: Sasha lives this. So much so that she actually ''defends'' Jodi's right to sleep with Gibbs because of it.
* AscendedFanboy: Willie.
* AttentionWhore: Sasha.
* AwesomeYetImpractical: Titan Maximum itself. In theory it's a decent idea, albeit one that's ridiculously expensive. In practice your pilots end up being a team of morons who if not for their skill as pilots would likely have brought death upon Titan faster than Mars ever could have. They are an absolute pain in the ass to deal with for both the President and Bitchface, in both iterations.
** As if that weren't enough, Titan Maximum has extremely advanced weapons systems, but what does every fight come down to? Punching the bad guy. Preferably in the crotch.
* AxCrazy: At least in the hillbilly episode, Sasha. Specifically when she's shooting a guy in the leg over and over while she laughs.
* TheBadGuyWins: The first season ends with [[spoiler: Gibbs succeeding in bringing down the solar shield around Mercury, with the team able to do nothing but stand there looking shocked.]]
* BelligerentSexualTension: Between Troy and Sasha. Clearly shown where they are dancing romantically, all while insulting each other.
* BerserkButton: Sasha may not like Jodi, but she will defend her right to sleep with whoever she wants, whenever she wants.
* BettyAndVeronica: Jodi and Sasha, big time.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Jodi, to put it charitably, goes absolutely ape-shit on Gibbs after he releases the sex tape he made in "To Eris, Human!". Even Sasha is surprised.
* BigDamnHeroes: Leon pulls one of these in the pilot to save Jodi, otherwise Titan Maximum is great at subverting it.
* BigFun: Spud really loved to party - which, unfortunately, is why he fell off a 400-story building and died.
* BondOneLiner: Palmer is a big fan of "Hey, you've got something in your teeth...MY FIST!" but it takes him a long time in between saying the line and throwing the punch.
** And then he usually just kicks the target.
* BookEnds: Last line in the pilot and the finale: [[NeverMyFault "Look what you did, Jodi."]]
* BringMyBrownPants:
** In the pilot, after Jodi brutally takes apart the students in her martial arts class, one of says he smells pee. She confirms that, if done properly, one of the moves she performed will cause involuntary urination.
*** In the same episode, the captain of the martian gunship after they realize that Titan Force Five has spotted them.
** In the second to last episode, Palmer throws a mechanic on his head, causing him to piss his pants.
** In the same episode, the Homeowners Association President gives us this:
--->'''General:''' There's no way he or the bomb could survive those temperatures.\\
'''Gibbs:''' ''[sarcastic]'' Yes, no way at all. Unless of course he had a robot specifically designed to survive those temperatures, and a bomb outfitted with an insulated coil... ''[does a dramatic gasp for effect]'' Oh, wait! He does! You may now commence the utter and total crapping of your drawers.\\
'''President:''' He wasn't kidding about those drawers.
* ButtMonkey: Jodi and Willie.
* CatchPhrase:
** Palmer's "Time to punch the fuck out of it!"
** Gibbs' flipping the bird each episode could be considered a non-verbal version of this. There's also his less-widely used actual catch phrase, "Moooooooooo!", which he uses to grab attention.
** Sasha says "bitch" a lot. Also, she has "[[NeverMyFault Look what you did Jodi]]".
*** Don't forget "[[SarcasmMode Duuuhhhh, good one, Jodi!]]"
** Palmer also has "There's something in your teeth... my fist!" Followed by him using an attack which isn't a punch.
* TheChessmaster: Gibbs.
* ClusterFBomb: Sasha. Here's an example:
-->'''Sasha:''' Gibbs, you motherfucking traitor! When I find you, I'm gonna fuck you in both your eye sockets with your own dick! Do you hear me? I'm gonna make sure your buried with your dick hanging out of your left eye! Do you hear me? Your mom's gonna see it!\\
'''Gibbs:''' Don't forget to stab me in the ears, too, darling, so I won't have to listen to another one of your albums.\\
'''Sasha:''' You motherfucking cocksucker... [Palmer cuts her mic off, disturbing hand motions continue.]
* CoitusUninterruptus: Gibbs is able to do this without even his partner Jodi noticing that he's given instructions to his assistant Clare, who's video taping it, and even using AuthenticationByNewspaper to prove the date.
* CombatPragmatist: Jodi and Sasha manage to beat Clare by resorting to cheating.
* ComicallyMissingThePoint: After Jodi and Gibbs' sex tape has been released:
-->'''Palmer:''' ''[making beeping noises while aiming some random device]'' Uh oh, I'm picking up a massive whore approaching, Willie. Set our whore shields to full power!\\
'''Jodi:''' Palmer--\\
'''Palmer:''' I was talking about you, Jodi; you're the whore! ''[throws device to Willie]''\\
'''Willie:''' This isn't even on!
* CreepyChild: Clare.
** [[OlderThanSheLooks Actually she is 21]], she just looks and acts like one
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Palmer and (especially) Sasha are both idiots, but can definitely hand you your ass in a fight.
* DaChief: Admiral Bitchface.
* DaddysGirl: Sasha. Subverted somewhat in that the President has no patience for Sasha's bullshit and sees how AwesomeYetImpractical Titan Maximum is.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Gibbs has one such moment at the end of the first season. When the heroes manage to deactivate the timer for his bomb and beat him up, Gibbs just remote-detonates the thing and escapes while they're celebrating.
-->'''Gibbs:''' "Enjoy your teammate friendship asslickin' kum-ba-ya bullshit while I just go ahead and win."
** This is even more impressive because the bomb was located inside an energy beam that rendered it virtually inaccessible. The bomb and method of placement were both specially built specifically so it could survive inside the beam. It would have been very easy for Gibbs to assume the bomb would not have been deactivated.
** This further pointed out in the pilot as Gibbs reminds Palmer, his brains were the secret to their former success. Thus without him [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption they can't win]].
* DatingCatwoman: Inverted with Gibbs as the bad guy and Jodi as the good guy. Turned out to be a plot to get Jodi arrested and Titan Maximum decommissioned.
* DeadpanSnarker: Formerly Gibbs, now he's more of a SmugSnake.
* DeconstructiveParody of the FiveManBand SuperRobot genre as typified by Voltron.
* DecoyProtagonist: The promos made it look like that Spud and Gibbs were part of the cast.
* DidIJustSayThatOutLoud?: Sasha does this in front of Jodi and her grandmother while remembering how she gave a teacher a blow job for a good grade.
* DistractedByTheSexy: Willie by Sasha.
* DownerEnding: In the season/series finale, [[spoiler:Mercury gets to experience kissing its sister, which is the ''fucking sun''!]]
* DrillSergeantNasty: Jodi had one while she was in the running to be the right arm of Titan Maximum. The word "scum" is somewhere in all but one of his lines.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Despite her being a constant annoyance, Gibbs will not let Clare kill his grandmother. [[spoiler:Averted at another point, since his grandmother is still on Mercury when he destroys the heat shield.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Sasha is by ''no'' means a saint, but she is the most furious at Gibbs for his betrayal, going into a curse-riddled rant when she sees him.
* EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys: Albeit an extremely creepy one. WordOfGod on the DVD Commentary admits this is the reason he's there.
** If anything, the [[TheVoiceless silence]] makes him even funnier.
* EyepatchOfPower: Gibbs. Lampshaded by Jodi, who says the eyepatch is sexy.
* {{Expy}}: The Peeper is a clear parody of Marvel's The Watcher.
* FaceHeelTurn: Gibbs, though with teammates like his you can't blame him. Palmer actually abandoned him in the middle of a battle rather than miss a date with a hot chick. Later Troy, who's angry that his father left his younger (more competent) sister in charge of their family's megacorporation instead of him.
* FauxAffablyEvil: Gibbs.
-->'''Gibbs:''' Oh, ok. Well I guess I lose then. Oh, wait... [presses robot control button with middle finger]
* FallenHero: Gibbs
* FiveManBand:
** TheHero: Palmer. Post-FaceHeelTurn Gibbs claims that he was the ''true'' hero, since he came up with all the plans and that Palmer's just a glory-hogging prick. Knowing Palmer, this is no doubt completely true.
** TheLancer: Gibbs, Sasha.
** TheBigGuy: Spud, Sasha (who's the most aggressive and has a bit of an AxCrazy bent).
** TheSmartGuy: Gibbs again, Willie.
** TheChick: Jodi.
** TheHeart: Originally, Spud (arguably); Willie seems to be verging on this.
** TheSixthRanger[=/=]TeamPet: Leon
* FlippingTheBird: Gibbs does this to the point of a conditioned response.
* {{Foil}}: [[TheChessmaster Cool, collected and methodical]] Gibbs is a stark contrast to the [[IdiotHero fly by the seat of your pants style]] that Palmer uses.
** From the original team, Gibbs was the TokenEvilTeammate, whereas Spud was TheHeart. Their EstablishingCharacterMoment is Spud saying "I just wanna say that I love you guys!" to break up a fight, which gets a big "Awwwwwww" from Palmer, Jodi and Sasha, while Gibbs groans out "Fat dumbass." To further drive the point home, Gibbs was easily the most valuable man on the team, which is why the tolerated his personality, while Spud was only a mediocre pilot that they kept around because [[BigFun they just enjoyed his company.]]
* ForeignLanguageTheme: The end song is in Japanese as a tribute to the shows that inspired Titan Maximum, specifically the ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' theme by PuffyAmiYumi.
* ForTheEvulz: Why Gibbs wants to [[TakeOverTheWorld take over the solar system]], at least on the surface. He hints at having more altruistic reasons to Jodi.
* TheFunInFuneral: The DVD comes with a mini comic about Spud's funeral -- Palmer gives a eulogy mostly about his own sexual conquests and interrupts Gibbs' eulogy to generally brag about how cool he is. He and Gibbs start tussling and accidentally knock over the casket, causing the body to fall out.
* GladIThoughtOfIt: Palmer - Inverted when he comes up with a bad idea and Willie starts to suggest a better one, he tells him that he better not steal his idea; but then played straight immediately afterwards as he immediately starts claiming he thought of the better idea first.
* GoshdangItToHeck: Jodi. "Holy crow!"
* GratuitousJapanese: The ending song.
* GreaseMonkey: [[IncrediblyLamePun Leon.]]
* GroinAttack:
** Sasha's preferred (and only) method of attack. Subverted in the third episode, where the monster ''does not have genitals''. It only works after [[WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer they hit it there so hard their arm goes all the way up into its chest and then they rip its heart out]]. In the following episode, she laments the monster not having a crotch. She also laments Titan Megamum's crotch being shielded. Takes it UpToEleven in the following episode, where she fights four guys using nothing but groin attacks.
** Jodi gets on the action, too, especially when fighting Gibbs in the first season finale.
** Practically happens to Gibbs every time he takes a "Dramatic Pose"
*** When piloting Titan Megamum, he lifts up the atomic bomb in a dramatic pose for the newspapers. Cue Titan Maximum kicking it in the groin from behind, the sound of a [[StockSoundEffects photographic flashbulb]] showing a newspaper of that precise moment.
* HannibalLecture: Gibbs.
* HarmlessFreezing: Completely averted when a scientist is hit by a freeze ray, and even after getting some of the ice off of himself with steam he still suffers from [[CrossesTheLineTwice horribly debilitating frostbite]] ([[MajorInjuryUnderreaction to which he is almost indifferent]]).
* HeroWithBadPublicity: Titan Force Five, at least after Gibbs became evil. Before that, they were rather well liked despite some embarrassing public displays of drunkenness.
** Actually, they were still well liked afterwards, because they were directly opposing Gibbs. It was only when their incompetence became apparent that people started to turn against them, but even then...
* HeroicComedicSociopath: Sasha seems to be approaching this, showing signs of being AxCrazy and an über-AlphaBitch. An good example would her being able to defeat a robot by punching through its crotch to reach its heart. Perhaps best summarized in her establishing character moment in her introduction in the first episode, where she saves a man's life from falling debris by kicking him in the crotch to get him out of the way. Palmer could also be seen as this. Their only saving grace is opposing Gibbs [[OmnicidalManiac plans]].
* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[StarWars Lando]] is Admiral Bitchface.
** H. Jon Benjamin was that guy who trained Jodi in arm wrestling and [[Creator/FrankWelker Frank Freakin' Welker]] was the anchorman from the last episode.
** [[KingOfTheHill Joseph Gribble]] is Palmer, [[FamilyGuy Chris Griffin]] is Gibbs, [[KingdomHearts Tifa]] is Jodi, and [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Helo]] is Troy.
** In fact, anybody who's a fan of RobotChicken in general will recognize a voice from there in at least one or two episodes. Abraham Benrubi (who voiced WilliamShatner on RC) appears in a TM episode, for instance. And [[That70sShow Red Forman]] is the Mercury Commander in episodes 8 and 9. Plus, Dan "Skeletor" Milano plays Willie.
** The Mercury Militia leader is [[Creator/KurtwoodSmith Red]] [[Series/That70sShow Forman.]]
* HiddenDepths: Believe it or not Gibbs, despite his dislike for his teammates, he was willing to go Spud funeral and was outrage when Palmer gives his eulogy mostly about his own sexual conquests, and in Gibbs own eulogy he was willing to admit that Spud had courage.
* HollywoodToneDeaf: Sasha.
-->''"Hey, Sasha? is there any connection between your poor album sales and the fact that it sucks?"''
** This gets [[FridgeBrilliance even funnier]] once you realise that Sasha is voiced by Eden Espinosa, [[CastingGag who is known for playing Elphaba]] in ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}''. After all, while singing badly requires no talent, singing ''horribly'' usually requires a lot.
-->'''[[http://www.adultswim.com/shows/titan-maximum/extras/interview/eden-espinosa-titan-maximum-interview.html Eden Espinosa]]''': But we had to do several takes because they [Seth Green, Tom Root and Matt Senreich] were like, "Yeah, Eden, it still sounds too good. It sounds like you're singing good."
* HomePornMovie: Gibbs makes one of himself and Jodi during their tryst on Diode, then releases it while Jodi is visiting her grandmother.
-->'''Gibbs on tape:''' Look at me; I'm a newspaper-face! Does this turn you on?
* HotBlooded: Palmer. At least in this, he fits the mold of a SuperRobot lead man.
* HumongousMecha: It's time to form...
-->'''Titan Force Five''': [[CombiningMecha Titan Maximum!]]
* HypocriticalHumor: Many, many examples:
** After President Caylo insists that Titan Force Five is a team to Gibbs:
--->'''Palmer:''' ''[knocks his teammates aside]'' Make way for the awesome train. Chuga chuga, chuga chuga, awesome!\\
'''Willie:''' Its armor is too strong.\\
'''Palmer:''' ''[after being repelled by the monster]'' Damnit, people, start acting like a team!
** Sasha tries to call Troy on his robot's name:
--->'''Sasha:''' Titan ''Megamum''? "Megamum" isn't even a word.\\
'''Troy:''' Neither is "vaginacillin", but that didn't stop you from using it as the title for your third album. ''[shudders]'' Or your fragrance line.
** Moments later, when the question of Mars breaking its treaty with Titan comes up:
--->'''Willie:''' Wait wait wait, Hammerschmiddtt Motors was barred from building war machines after the Mars/Titan peace treaty.\\
'''Palmer:''' Ah ha, you're breaking interplanetary law, ya buttplug.\\
'''Mercury General:''' So are you!
* IdiotHero: Palmer and Sasha both.
** The whole team really, if only because Palmer and Sasha drag them down.
* ILied:
-->'''Prime Minister''': [After giving up codes Gibbs needs and those at the party find out] What?! We voted, show of hands. [whispers] It was this or the volcano, you fools.\\
'''Gibbs''': Ooo, yeah, about that... it's actually gonna be this ''and'' the volcano, I'm afraid, so... double cross, enjoy. [Presses a button to have the bot drop them in.]
* ImpossibleShadowPuppets: "Bunny, horsey, ducky, ten speed bike, Eddie Van Halen, Titanic, Titanic sinking, scene from Titanic where Leo drew Kate."
* InsultBackfire: Sasha gives a self-satisfied grin when Palmer calls her a "huge raging bitch" right after noting that "the only person who could hump the starch out of [Jodi's] shorts is a murderous psychopath." This leads Jodi to have an [[OnlySaneMan only sane woman]] moment.
* JerkAss: pretty much everyone except Willie, Jodi, Leon, and Spud. Palmer occasionally shifts to being a JerkWithAHeartOfGold, but it's fairly rare.
* JerkJock: Palmer.
* JumpedAtTheCall: Willie
* {{Kaiju}}
* LastNameBasis: Everybody calls Palmer by his last name, even his grandparents. Willie even called his grandpa on it, which is handwaved as Palmer "making the name his own."
* LittleMissBadass: Clare.
* LegalJailbait: Clare. When Jodi finds out she [[spoiler: was the one filming her when she slept with Gibbs]], she's notably distressed. Gibb's claims it's okay because Clare's actually 21. Jodi disagrees.
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: "It'll be like kissing your sister! If your sister was the fucking sun!"
* MisfitMobilizationMoment: Happens a few times, particularly in the season finale. Interestingly, it tends to happen much more often when Titan Force Five has to fight off bad guys outside of their cockpits.
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* MookChivalry: Subverted and lampshaded. Palmer complains that he can't hit more than one mook at a time when they decide to surround him and Sasha from all sides.
* MsFanservice: Sasha, and she knows it.
** Jodi to a fair extent, having been the victim of sexual harassment far more than she'd care to admit.
* NeverMyFault: "Look what you did, Jodi."
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Possible variant - nice job [[BreakTheHaughty breaking your lancer]], hero! Titan Maximum also appears to play this straight on a small scale fairly often.
** The first season ends with them [[spoiler: failing to stop Gibbs from completely frying Mercury]].
* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: In the first season finale, Willie goes on about how Clare's [[{{BFS}} sword]] is made of "Aggregated diamond nanorods; hyperdiamond! The hardest substance there is!" Cue the freeze frame and the disclaimer informing that [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aggregated_diamond_nanorod ADNR's]] are a real substance, and are every bit as hard as advertised. We don't yet know of anything harder.
* NotWhatItLooksLike: Willie's grandparents try this when the sex tape of Gibbs and [[spoiler:Jodi]].
-->'''Grandmother Palmer''': They...they're just wrestling, Willie.\\
'''Grandfather Palmer''': Why don't ''we'' wrestle like that?\\
'''Willie''': If they're wrestling, he's really, ''really'' trying to tap out.\\
'''Palmer''': [[DontExplainTheJoke ...with his balls.]]
* OlderThanTheyLook: The Adult Swim website says that Willie is 19, but he sure doesn't look it. There's also Clare, who looks to be about 8 or so, but according to Gibbs is actually ''21''.
** This likely an intentional TakeThat to Anime in general, where ''15'' can mean you look 24, or ''10'' means having the figure of an 18 year old school girl.
* OnlyOneName: Palmer.
* OnlySaneMan: Admiral Bitchface. Gibbs has this to some extent as well.
* OnlySixFaces: There's a number of generic head sculpts for minor characters -- most obviously, Spud's head, which is shared by the Jester Corpsman and the Prime Minister of Mars among others.
* OverlyLongGag: Spud's 50-seconds-long death-fall in the pilot.
** It was ''400 stories''; it takes a while to fall that far.
* PetTheDog: Palmer has many MANY failings and is a total ass to his team, past and present. However, he refuses to hand over his brother to be sodomized by some rednecks to save his own skin. Nice to know the guy has a shred of brotherly love. He also tried and largely failed to hide being upset about [[spoiler:Jodi being arrested by the authorities on Titan for treason]].
* PlanetOfHats:
** Eris is a redneck planet.
** Mercury is essentially Planet Florida, and as such is entirely populated by old people.
** Neptune is a gigantic winter resort, with a lone steam-in-a-can production facility
* ThePresidentsDaughter: Sasha.
* [[PsychoExGirlfriend Psycho Ex Boyfriend]]: Jodi used to date Gibbs back when he was TheLancer and not [[LargeHam Super King Big-Nuts]]. And [[spoiler:kind of still is]].
* PluckyComicRelief: Subverted and invoked with the Jester Corpsman.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: After Willie makes a bad try at bantering.
-->'''Palmer:''' Don't. Banter. Ever. No!
* RealityEnsues: Does Jodi get a slap on the wrist for her "meeting" with Gibbs? Nope she is arrested for treason.
* ReallyGetsAround: Sasha, to put it lightly.
* RebelliousPrincess: Sasha.
* RedOniBlueOni: Palmer and Gibbs.
** Also Palmer and Sasha (hot-blooded) to Jodi and Willie (cool and collected), according to the lampshading in the third episode. "I have no opinion on [[TheQuietOne the monkey]]."
* RichBitch: Sasha.
* ScrewedByTheNetwork: More like, Screwed By The Creator. Seth Green willfully cancelled a hit show, so he could continue work on his CashCowFranchise, ''RobotChicken''.
* ShoutOut: The entire series is an obvious Shout Out to ''{{Voltron}}'', but there are a few other less obvious ones as well.
** When Sasha first enters the garage, her theme music is clearly inspired by Justin Timberlake's song "Sexy Back".
** Palmer's bike resembles that of Kaneda in ''Manga/{{Akira}}''.
** When the [[SpaceMarine space marines]] are attacked by Clare in the hangar, the camera switches to a first-person perspective almost exactly like that of ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}''.
*** All while she's running in and out of shadows like the creatures from ''Aliens''.
** Episode 7 is entitled "[[Film/MaximumOverdrive Megamum Overdrive]]."
*** The same episode features {{Military Maverick}}s Bingo and Buzzard, based on Maverick and Goose from ''Film/TopGun''. A previous episode also had a ''Top Gun''-inspired montage featuring Palmer riding his motorcycle, drunkenly singing in a nightclub, and playing volleyball.
* SiblingYinYang: Palmer and Willie.
* SilentBob: Leon.
* SmugSnake: Gibbs, after his FaceHeelTurn.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Gibbs' shtick. He attempts to be suave and [[MagnificentBastard magnificent]], but this is sharply contrasted by his cruder tendencies and love of [[FlippingTheBird flipping people off]].
* SorryILeftTheBGMOn: Sasha's entrance at the Titan Force Five hangar.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Cute assassin ''Clare'' (not Claire), likely named after Creator/SethGreen's wife, actress Clare Grant.
* StepfordSmiler: Jodi's showing symptoms of being the "hidden sadness" variety. And the "[[TheFakeCutie hidden homicidal madness]]" variety.
* StylisticSuck: Sasha's miserable excuse of a music career.
* TakeOurWordForIt: "Oh my God! Titan Maximum is '''raping''' the Statue of Unity!"
** "Sir, your daughter is mimicking fellatio on ..."
*** Later: "Sir, you daughter is mimicking fellatio on ''two'' ..."
* TalkToTheFist: Played with. Gibbs is trying to make his ransom demands and Palmer smashes the robot transmitting his signal. Gibbs just keeps taking over more robots until he finishes.
* TheStoic: Leon.
* TedBaxter: Palmer and Sasha.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: All over the place:
** The Martian carrier commander has two in the span of two minutes: "Fuck me in the ass." when Titan Force Five shows up and "Aw, mom's gonna get some bad news..." right before the carrier is destroyed by Titan Maximum.
** Another one from a rather unfortunate victim of Gibbs' robot, who was cleaning a statue in front of an "Aviation Disaster Museum" as a damaged [[RedshirtArmy Redshirt Air Force]] plane augers in: "Oh this is ironic as hell!"
** In the last episode of the first season, Sasha says, "In retrospect, we really dropped the ball on this one."
*** Followed by "Look what you DID, Jodi."
* TokenEvilTeammate: Before he turned on Titan Force Five, Gibbs obviously loathed most of his team.
* TooDumbToLive: Sasha. When Willie brings out a [[FrickinLaserBeams laser gun]] to fire at the MonsterOfTheWeek, her first instinct is to throw it at said monster. She misses and asks Willie for another (''"But I only made ''one!''"''). When the monster picks the gun up later, she assumes it's going to do the same thing. It doesn't. [[ForMassiveDamage Massive Damage]] ensues.
* TooMuchInformation: President Caylo does ''not'' want to know about all the weird sexual stuff his daughter Sasha is up to in the public spotlight.
* TransformationSequence: Done three times in the first two episodes, then lampshaded later on by onlookers ("Well, this transformation sequence always takes about 30 seconds.") without actually showing it.
* TheUnfavorite: Willie.
* UnusualEuphemism: Palmer occasionally, though "Shrinky Dinks!" stands out a bit. As well as "[[RobotChicken Ass crackers]]!"
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: [[spoiler:Troy Hammerschmidtt]]
* ViolationOfCommonSense: After Titan Maximum kicks Titan Megamum while it's holding a bomb.
-->'''Gibbs:''' You idiotic shitbuckets! I was holding a freaking nuke!
* WhenAllYouHaveIsAHammer: All weapons are offline... Palmer's response? "Then we'll do what we always do: [[CatchPhrase PUNCH THE FUCK OUT OF IT]]!"
** Also, Sasha: "How many times do I have to tell you? ''Punch it in the crotch!''" She then proceeds to rip the monster's heart out through its crotch.
** [[LampshadeHanging "Get with the program, Willie! Half-assed is our way of life!"]]
** "It's like I know all the combos in the game but he just keeps hitting the A button!"
*** "Face punch!"
-----
-->Look what you did, Jodi…
--> Oh ''shut up'' Sasha.
