!![=YMMVs=] for [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans the animated series]]:

[[folder:A - B]]
* AdaptationDisplacement: For many younger watchers (or those who just don't read comics). Among the main cast, most people would probably only recognize Robin as a popular comic character. It's also had the effect of making the core five of the show be considered the "classic" lineup, despite the fact that the Titans have never consisted of just them in the comics.
* AdaptationDistillation: Adapts and distills many elements from the Wolfman and Perez age of the comics along with some elements from both before and after that period.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** Terra. Some fans see her as a wonderful person who is constantly misunderstood and persecuted (often times they are also Beast Boy/Terra shippers), or as a horrible bitch who betrayed the Titans and deserved what she got at the end of Season 2. ([[DieForOurShip usually Beast Boy/Raven shippers]].) Few people realize what she was actually meant to be: a BrokenBird and AntiVillain with complicated motives and very deep emotional issues. So she's a normal 15-year-old girl. Albeit one with geokinetic powers.
*** Also, in "Things Change", does Terra truly have amnesia? Does her subconscious mind remember and is keeping her conscious mind from remembering too? Or does she fully remember on a conscious level and is just pretending not to remember?
** Val-Yor from the episode, ''Troq'' was seen smiling as he left Earth. Was he smiling because he is relieved to leave a planet full of Tamaranean sympathizers who called him out for his FantasticRacism and smirking for being better then them? Or was he really, [[HiddenHeartOfGold deep down]], [[PetTheDog thankful that Starfire saved him]] and [[HeelFaceTurn is slowly changing his views]]? Or is he [[NobleBigot still racist against the Tamaraneans, but proud of the Titans for standing up for their friend]]?
** The writing of the season 3 episode "The Beast Within" is ''terribly'' inconsistent about what's actually going on, including the question of how much of or even ''whether'' Beast Boy's [[JerkassBall ugly behavior]] is actually [[FreakOut his]] [[TheCorruption own]] [[PowerIncontinence fault]].
*** And while we're on the subject, can somebody explain the Man-Beast, what it is, how it works, and why [[spoiler:Adonis was one, too]], please? 'Cause the fans certainly aren't in agreement.
* AngstWhatAngst:
** It's revealed [[ComicBook/TeenTitansGo in the tie-in comic]] that Starfire's parents died after she was sent away as a slave by Blackfire to the Gordanians. This isn't brought up at all in the episode she returned to Tamaran. Granted, the comic came out after the episode aired, but watching it again, it becomes [[HarsherInHindsight particularly jarring]] considering that Starfire displays no form of grief. [[TheSociopath Blackfire]]'s lack of grief is justified. {{Fanon}} for this seems to be either that Starfire's parents were so distant that she never really knew them (which given that they were royals and what we know of their culture, might make sense) or that they sold her into slavery in the first place (with or without Blackfire's prodding). There is also some consensus that she considers her ParentalSubstitute seen in the fake wedding episode and his wife (if he has one) to be her true parents.
** Beast Boy has several examples.
*** During "The Beast Within" Robin decides to subject Beast Boy to a full police interrogation to figure out what happened to Raven after they disappeared from the tower. Nobody ever brings up how the Titans were one hundred percent willing to assume the worst of him, or how Beast Boy's episode is a blatant example of ThereAreNoTherapists.
*** Beast Boy's history with Terra is one of the most heartbreaking things to happen to the team, and yet he only ever angsts about it when she's relevant to the plot. The rest of the time, there's practically no sign that she had any impact at ''all''.
*** Everything to do with the Doom Patrol, which was introduced in Season Five and introduced a ''huge'' retcon into Beast Boy's history -- Beast Boy had always been rather free-floating as the show's local CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass, so the idea that he's actually been a MilitaryBrat [[ToBeLawfulOrGood who would rather save lives than follow orders]] ''the whole time'' is downright bizarre. Even Cyborg and Raven privately muse about it.
*** The tie-in comic ''also'' confirms that Garfield's parents died in Africa when he was a little boy. This gets even less treatment than the matter of the Doom Patrol.
* AssPull:
** Cyborg gaining regenerating powers and invulnerability by hacking Brother Blood in the season 3 finale come out of nowhere as a kind of DeusExMachina, and are subsequently {{Handwave}}d as being "a one-time deal".
*** He also got a spontaneous boost during the fight with Atlas when he's suddenly and inexplicably able to surpass the built-in limits of his hardware.
** In "Birthmark" Raven says that Robin knows her better than anyone. While the two have similar personalities, Robin was actually the Titan Raven had the ''least'' interaction with up to that point. Anytime the two spoke it tended to be a brief interaction, while Raven had several episodes devoted to her relationships with the other Titans. The relationship between the pair played a big role in the season 4 arc, but the writers treated it as something that had already been established, which wasn't the case. This might, "might" being the key word here, be an allusion to the events of [[{{Recap/TeenTitansS3E5Haunted}} Haunted]] wherein she briefly mind-melded with Robin and got a glimpse of his past with the implication being that during this, Robin got to see her past as well. The set up however isn't exactly well executed since that after that sequence they still shared very little meaningful screen time; and comes off like an AssPull anyway as a result.
* AudienceColoringAdaptation:
** Several things ranging from character design to characterization itself were later implemented into the actual comics, with varying results. Also, if you were to ask someone today about the ''Teen Titans'' comic mythos, they're much more likely base it on their knowledge of the show.
*** For some specifics: take Cyborg and Raven. The former's popularity in this show (and a few other factors outside of it) have carried over into the comics and even boosted him all the way up to becoming ''a founding member of the '''Justice League''' '' come the New 52 launch. The latter a little less so, but after this show portrayals of Raven have skewed much closer to this show than her original comic appearances in terms of combative powers and physical appearance, going as far to have her reborn as a young teen after decades of being as old as Dick/Nightwing.
** This has caused problems with Starfire's reception as a character, as her cartoon self and her comic self are radically different, causing her comic-self to be widely disliked by a large number of fans who were introduced to the series through the show. While both Starfires are loving, affectionate [[ActionGirl action girls]] who are always there for their friends that's about where similarities end in terms of personality. Cartoon!Starfire is a NaiveNewcomer, FunnyForeigner, who speaks in somewhat broken English and [[FishOutOfWater has trouble fitting in due to her vastly different culture.]] Comic!Starfire is a [[BoisterousBruiser hot headed]] BruiserWithASoftCenter who is both a very liberated young lady who isn't nearly as shy or awkward as her cartoon self, speaks perfect English, as well as being very sexually active by American standards and is a major case of MsFanservice. She is also easily enraged and much more prone to violence than her cartoon self. When New 52 tried to emphasize [[InNameOnly her]] original incarnation's [[DarkerAndEdgier darker characteristics]] at least part of the backlash was from people who grew up with the cartoon counterpart, and were confused as to why she was so drastically different. [[note]] Other backlash was due to making her very one dimensional in attempt to make her edgy, giving her a costume that was somehow even MORE revealing than her original incarnation's, essentially just being there as eye-candy, and having Roy have sex with her despite her apparent amnesia.[[/note]] Also of note is her physical appearance. Her cartoon appearance portrayed her as a very skinny young woman with small, but still noticeable curves. Her original comic incarnation was ''so'' curvy that several other Titans affectionately and jokingly [[LampshadeHanging referred to her as]] [[InSeriesNickname "Balloon Bod."]]
*** After the backlash against the writing of Starfire's character in New 52 became too much DC wrote her out of ''Outlaws'' and gave her her own series. In it her physical appearance and attire is much closer to her cartoon counterparts' appearance. Her personality became something of an amalgam of her Pre-New 52 personality and her cartoon personality, and her English skills are somewhere in between the two previous incarnations. Arguably she has now become the Titan who is most like her cartoon self.
** Comic-verse Beast Boy's inexorable slide into shallow CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass can largely be traced back to this show. He has also aged down after slowly aging up since the 90s, and his alias has reverted after going by "Changeling" for decades, even during the Wolfman/Perez run.
* BadassDecay:
** Brother Blood. Even though his power level actually seemed to go ''up'' with each appearance, his personality became increasingly [[LargeHam hammy]], petulant, and single-mindedly obsessed with Cyborg, which noticeably hurt his overall effectiveness as a villain.
** Also very observable with the HIVE kids. In their first couple of appearances, they're the EvilCounterpart team to the Titans and can fight them evenly (and beat them without too much trouble if they play their cards right), but as time goes on they become complete jokes to the point that [[DarkActionGirl Jinx]], who remained the most competent, finally jumped ship and [[HeelFaceTurn became a hero]].
** Slade inverts this. Normally being DemotedToDragon makes a villain less of a threat, but he actually become more of a threat during this period.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Terra, chiefly due to the MisaimedFandom and misaimed dislike of her character.
* BrokenBase:
** The show draws flak from some fans of the original comics [[MoodWhiplash for its frequent, yet inconsistent]] [[ComedyGhetto less-than-serious tone]], its {{Animesque}} nature, and the many differences between the heroes in the comics and their cartoon incarnations (like animated Raven's exaggerated Gothiness and animated Starfire being less aggressive and more naive). In addition, the physical appearance of the characters in the animated series is profoundly different than that of the original comic book series which (despite its title) depicted the Titans as being in their 20s[[note]]at one point, the comic series even dropped ''Teen'' from the title, as it had become apparent they weren't anymore[[/note]], with Starfire and Raven being arguably the two characters most noticeably "kiddified" for the animated series.
** Season 5 as a whole tends to be divisive with the fandom. Some loved the focus on both [[ADayInTheLimelight new and old supporting characters]] while others hated it, and felt the series should have concluded with Season 4 as originally planned. The {{series finale}}, "Things Change" is especially [[InternetBackdraft a sore point]] among the fandom: some fans see it as a disappointing {{Cliffhanger}} ending for the series that should be resolved, while others believe the episode's [[AnAesop message about accepting change]] was a perfectly fine note to end on.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** Slade's entire appearance in "Forces of Nature", where he not only creates a giant fire monster for no reason other than pure destruction (though this was primarily to divert the other four Titans while he could face Robin one-on-one for the first time), but displays several magical abilities that he never uses again.
** Terra (maybe) moving icecubes in one scene in "Things Change". This is never explained or brought up again.
* BizarroEpisode: At least once per season, with such episodes being telegraphed by use of the Japanese opening. Mad Mod's episodes fall into this, as do "Fractured" in Season 2, "Bunny Raven" in Season 3, "Don't Touch That Dial", "Employee of the Month" ''and'' "Mother Mae-Eye" in Season 4, and "Revved Up" in Season 5.

[[folder:C - D]]
* CantUnHearIt: After this show, there's a very good chance you'll be imagining Creator/KharyPayton as Cyborg, Creator/TaraStrong as Raven, Creator/GregCipes as Beast Boy, Creator/ScottMenville as Robin, and Creator/HyndenWalch as Starfire when you read the comics.
* CompleteMonster: While LighterAndSofter than [[ComicBook/TeenTitans the comic]], whenever [[VileVillainSaccharineShow these two]] show up, the tone [[KnightOfCerebus darkens significantly]]:
** [[TheChessmaster Slade]] [[note]]never called "ComicBook/{{Deathstroke}}" here[[/note]], one of the {{Big Bad}}s, was a cold, [[ManipulativeBastard manipulative]] criminal [[DiabolicalMastermind mastermind]]. Slade's main goal throughout the series was to find himself an apprentice whom he could mold into being just as cruel and ruthless as he was. First targeting Robin, Slade came up with various schemes to test the Boy Wonder's mettle before finally infecting Robin's friends with nanobots that would destroy them from the inside out should Robin not follow Slade's every command. When his plans for Robin were thwarted, Slade next turned his attention to Terra. Taking advantage of her status as an outsider who would never be accepted because of her destructive powers, Slade manipulated her into joining and befriending the Titans, betraying them and finally trying to kill them. After Terra finds herself in over her head while fighting the Titans and retreats, Slade [[WouldHitAGirl physically abuses her]] for defying his orders. When Terra tries to quit her apprenticeship, Slade reveals that the suit he gave her to enhance her powers also gave him [[PeoplePuppets complete control over her body]] and vowed that he would never let her go. Though Slade dies when Terra rebels against him, he is eventually resurrected by the demonic OmnicidalManiac, Trigon, to act as the demon's [[TheDragon dragon]]. Slade took a vicious pleasure in his work towards ensuring the apocalypse, [[MindRape mind raping]] Raven with visions of her destiny as the AntiChrist and selling out all of humanity to Trigon in exchange for Trigon giving him back his soul. Even when Slade rebels against Trigon, it isn't out of altruism, but because Trigon refused to honor their bargain.
** [[BigRedDevil Trigon]] the [[TheDreaded Terrible]] was the BigBad of Season 4 and [[ArchnemesisDad father]] of Raven. In the past he'd conceived Raven solely to serve as a HumanSacrifice to become his portal into the realm of mortals so that he could [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt destroy the Earth and all life on it]], just as he did to Raven's homeworld of Azarath, and Raven has been repressing her powers and emotions in order to avoid letting this come to pass. After Slade died in Season 2, Trigon rescued him from Purgatory and [[DealWithTheDevil offered him his life back were he to serve him]] in bringing Raven to [[TheAntichrist her destiny]]. Trigon later comes to Raven in a vision, [[AbusiveParents emotionally abusing her]] and cruelly attempts to [[BreakThemByTalking break her will so that she submits to his demands of her]]. When Slade asks for his promised payment, Trigon calls the deal off because, thanks to Trigon's own [[ManipulativeBastard manipulation]], Raven had come to him willingly [[ExactWords rather than Slade delivering her to him]], and Trigon attempts to [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness incinerate Slade]] on the spot. Trigon then [[ApocalypseHow destroys the world]] immediately as he arrives, turning all mortal life to [[TakenForGranite stone]] and creating a HellOnEarth for him to reign over. He then plots to [[OmnicidalManiac expand this destruction to all worlds in the dimension so that he could conquer the universe]] and [[AGodAmI all would worship him as a deity]], and when the Titans fight back, he not only brings out their own dark sides to torment them [[ForTheEvulz for his amusement]], but he tries to [[OffingTheOffspring murder his daughter]], whom he openly deems to be worthless.
* CounterpartComparison:
** Some have noticed that Slade is closer to Ra's Al Ghul than he is Deathstroke. He's a terrorist instead of a mercenary, he tries to get somebody in the Bat Family to be his successor, and he [[spoiler:uses supernatural means to cheat death]].
** He has also been compared to Shredder in [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 the 2003 TMNT cartoon]]. Both are [[KnightOfCerebus Knights Of Cerebus]] and [[RecurringCharacter Recurring Villains]] with an endless army of {{Mooks}} at their disposal, and are capable of single-handedly beating down the main characters. [[spoiler:They also come BackFromTheDead in the latter parts of their respective series.]]
* CrackPairing: In-universe, we have the OfficialCouple of Kid Flash/Jinx. While both characters are adapted from the comics, their ship isn't, and it's extremely unlikely to ever happen there, whether the Kid Flash is Wally or Bart.
* CreepyAwesome: Raven and Slade. Raven gets less creepy as the show goes on, while Slade gets ''more'' creepy as the show goes on.
* CriticalDissonance: Season 5 was one of the most, if not ''the'' most, well-received season among critics and fans of the comics, who felt its tighter continuity, introduction of new characters such as Kid Flash, and more serious tone made it just as good, if not better, than the previous season. Among fans of the show, it's the most polarizing season for some of the same reasons.
* CrossoverShip:
** It's not uncommon to find ''Teen Titans'' crossover pairings, especially ones with Raven. Some the most popular ''Teen Titans'' crossovers are Terra×WesternAnimation/Ben10, Raven×WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom, Raven×[[WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender Zuko]], Raven×WesternAnimation/Ben10, and [[Disney/{{Hercules}} Megara]]×Speedy.
*** The Ben 10 and Raven ones are especially strange when you consider that the original, young Ben was also voiced by Tara Strong, the voice of Raven.
*** Considering the RelationshipWritingFumble on the latter series, Terra and Ben 10 is also kinda weird, since Gwen in ''Ben 10: Alien Force'' was voiced by Ashley Johnson, who voiced Terra.
*** Beast Boy is also getting shipped in the Fanfiction.net archives, especially in harem fics.
** Raven×Manga/{{Naruto}} pairings are pretty common.
** Though not as common as with Raven, Starfire has also been paired with Danny Phantom.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome:
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vskhxLHfTOA Mumbo's "Master of Your Fate"]]. It's also an EarWorm.
** Terra's theme (especially the rendition that plays during her run through the obstacle course) is pretty darn awesome.
** Everything from the "Aftershock" and "The End" multiparters.
** Here's one that doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny: When there's trouble you know what to dooooo... CALL CYBORG! He can shoot a rocket from his shooooe... CAUSE HE'S CYBORG! Nananana, something like that! Doodadoodah, BIG FLUFFY CAT! (That's right!)
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XSiGteEY-jk climax]] of the episode ''Haunted'' is perfectly spine chilling.
** Blink and you'll miss it, but when the Titans make a comeback during the big fight in the GrandFinale ''Titans Together'', a badass instrumental remix of the main theme song plays.
** The song "Raining Down on the Fourth of July Parade" in the episode "Revolution".
* DieForOurShip:
** Terra is not hated for her betrayal as much as she is hated for getting in between [[FanPreferredCouple Beast Boy and Raven]]. Even though WordOfGod states there was nothing there but a close friendship.
** Also, Robin/Raven fans towards Starfire.
* DracoInLeatherPants:
** Slade.
** Terra can be both this '''and''' RonTheDeathEater due to her [[AntiVillain fluctuations between good and evil.]]

[[folder:E - F]]
* EarWorm: There are quite a few songs that count as Ear Worms:
** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWaWvQuIVMI main theme]]. Sung by Puffy [=AmiYumi=] no less! Some episodes have the Japanese version played during the intro.
** How about Larry's version of the theme song from "Fractured"?
** Mumbo's "Master of Your Fate".
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZlkjyFGjZY Puffy AmiYumi's "K2G"]] from "Mad Mod".
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Quite a lot, despite their limited appearances:
** Blackfire has a pretty sizable fanbase, most likely due to her voice, her figure and her outfit.
** Kid Flash only showed up twice, but he's ''very'' well-liked by the fans. Being a suave, witty gentleman might have something to do with it.
** Red X is especially impressive. We never learn anything of his background; not even his ''real face''. He's a character original to the animated series, and he only appears in two episodes, in only one of which is he a headlining villain.
** Jinx is incredibly popular, particularly in Lightspeed, so her HeelFaceTurn was met with open arms.
** Argent. She only appears for a brief amount of time but has a lot of fans.
** Despite being an original character for the show and having no lines, Kyd Wykkyd has amassed a group of fans
* EvilIsCool:
** Slade. He's a detestable person, but so ''awesome'' at being bad that it gets him a big fanbase.
** There's also Red-X, although he's more of an AntiHero.
** This series actually managed to turn Killer Moth into a badass EvilGenius. He creates an army of moths that nearly has him ruling the world, and fights the Teen Titans without the need of any effort. Even his costume is cool.
* EvilIsSexy:
** Jinx, Rouge, and Blackfire. Additionally, some found [[SixthRangerTraitor Terra]]'s outfit to be sexy when she turned evil. Even ''Slade'' has a reasonably large fangirl following, too! (However, his creators explained that he was meant to be the opposite of ''sexy''.)
** Fangirls can also say for Red-X, even though his face was never shown.
* FanonDiscontinuity:
** Some fans choose to ignore [[PostScriptSeason Season 5]], either entirely or up until the Ambiguous DownerEnding. See above entries in Broken Base and Critical Dissonance for all the reasons why.
** The episode ''Deep Six'' gets this due to some fans viewing the Titans (Raven and Starfire, in particular) as acting out of character.
* FanPreferredCouple:
** [[OppositesAttract Beast Boy/Raven]], '''big time'''. It's the most popular couple on FanFiction.net and probably in the whole {{Fandom}}. It's usually depicted as if it's a canon ship [[PairTheSpares because neither end up with anyone]] and their RelationshipWritingFumble ends up making them look romantic. They eventually become a couple in ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo''.
** Many fans seem to prefer Robin/Raven to [[OfficialCouple Robin/Starfire]], but the latter still has the largest following of the two, coming in second position, after Beast Boy/Raven.
** The third one is Robin/Raven, as previously deducted. Cyborg/Bumblebee [[PairTheSpares are often paired]] in [[ShipMates Beast Boy/Raven-Robin/Starfire]] fics, and a small portion of the fanbase prefers Cyborg/Jinx to OfficialCouple Jinx and Kid Flash. A small portion that includes the writers behind ''Teen Titans Go''.
** Fan {{shipping}} even occurs in-universe in the episode ''For Real''. Apparently one fanboy ships Starfire/Beast Boy, while another ships Bumblebee/Aqualad.
** Raven/Starfire has a respectable fanbase.
** Due to being Robin and Starfire's evil counterparts, some fans pair Red X with Blackfire.
* FunnyAneurysmMoment:
** Robin to Mother Mae-Eye: "You are ''not'' my mother."[[labelnote:*]]His mother is dead. Doesn't matter which Robin; his mother is dead.[[/labelnote]]
*** And all of Raven's scenes in that episode. This is the only time she has ever had ''any'' parental figure who mothers her at all.
** Also, the use of Dr. Light in the series, if you know [[MoralEventHorizon the things he did]] [[ComicBook/IdentityCrisis elsewhere...]] Also counts as a ContinuityNod Because [[spoiler:in ''ComicBook/IdentityCrisis'' they partially damaged his brain in the process of the mind wipe, making him even weaker than he originally was]].
*** Later, Dr. Light appears, and Raven {{Mind Rape}}s him.
-->'''Raven:''' Remember me?\\
'''Dr. Light:''' ''[appears terrified]'' I'd like to go to jail now, please.
** On the other hand, this may be FridgeHorror, because he may be having subconscious flashbacks to the first time he was {{Mind Rape}}d. And he remembers the fear and the damage to his mind, but he doesn't know what's going on.
** But then again, Raven threatening to MindRape him in "Birthmark", and the show playing it for laughs, becomes this again in light of Slade Mind Raping ''her'' at the end of the episode.

[[folder:G - H]]
* GeniusBonus:
** In "Haunted", when Raven goes through Robin's memories, the very last one is [[spoiler: a circus, with two shadows on the wall falling downwards]]. Should give you a hint as to which Robin he is.
** Also when 'Larry' shows up he gives his real name. It's backward but when the marquee wraps around behind him we see it front ways.
* GrowingTheBeard: Towards the end of the first season, with the episode "Masks".
* HarsherInHindsight:
** In "TROQ", Cyborg said he knew what it was like to experience prejudice, since he was a robot. Some fans said this was a cop out when he's also black. But when we see "Go!", the origin episode, he clearly expects to be hated just because he's a cyborg freak, usually hides his identity as one, and is surprised when Beast Boy actually thinks he's cool. And when you consider that most of the robots we see actually ''are'' evil, and that him being viewed as a freak for being a cyborg was a theme in the comics, it actually makes sense.
** In ''How Long is Forever?'' Cyborg says that Starfire's friends "Aren't friends anymore," and the villain of the episode, Warp, says that history cannot be changed, so Starfire's friends would still drift apart. Fast forward to WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo, and the [[WithFriendsLikeThese way the Titans act]] can give off the feeling that they aren't friends in the slightest.
*** And also applied to the bleak future for the Titans of the episode predicting the tragic fates of many Titans in comics with [[spoiler:Garth's death in ComicBook/BlackestNight, the transformation of Roy Harper into [[FaceHeelTurn Arsenal]] after the loss of his arm and his daughter in [[ComicBook/JusticeLeagueCryForJustice Cry For Justice]], and break up between Starfire and Robin.]] Not to mention both its contemporary run during and after the premiere of the show being either BrokenBase or SeasonalRot.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** EpilepticTrees identifying Red X's SecretIdentity as Jason Todd, in light of the appearance of Jason coming BackFromTheDead in the comics and in the WesternAnimation/DCUniverseAnimatedOriginalMovies as the Red Hood.
*** Also, in connection to that theory, Red X briefly flirted with Starfire. Now, with ''ComicBook/RedHoodAndTheOutlaws'', she and Jason are working together.
** Más Y Menos slogan "Si, podremos!" ([[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Yes, we can!]])
** Cyborg and Robin's conflict over leadership of the Titans in the end of Season 3 becomes this when, in ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'', Aqualad (also voiced by Khary Payton) becomes the leader of The Team instead of Robin. For a while, anyway.
** Jinx was voiced by Creator/TaraStrong for one episode and apparently is the [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "Unicorn Type"]].
** Due to having uncontrollable, destructive powers, Raven represses her emotions and frequently locks herself in her room, slamming the door on anyone who tries to ask if she's all right. Rewatch Robin or Starfire or Beast Boy begging her to open up or let them in and try not to hear, [[Disney/{{Frozen}} "Please don't shut me out again!/Please don't slam the door..."]]
** In one episode, Raven puts on a pair of prop horns to try and get into the Brotherhood of Evil. [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} Grey skin and horns...sound familiar?]]
** Creator/HyndenWalch voices a beautiful [[spoiler:alien]] princess who appears to TheHero after falling from the sky and goes on to become both TheChick and TheHeart of the team, as well as the The Hero's LoveInterest. Now, did I just describe Starfire or [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Nia Teppelin]]?
** Gizmo is a GadgeteerGenius antagonist who's shown alongside a trio with a [[TheBrute brute]] and sympathetic girl with destructive magic powers. He's a small kid relying on his tech, uses robotic limbs to accommodate his size, wears a dark green suit and neon green eyewear, is bratty and self-absorbed, makes many exaggerated sharp-toothed expressions, has a grating nasal voice and insults the protagonists with {{Unusual Euphemism}}s. 12 years later, switch the pronoun and this would also describe [[WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse Peridot]] during the period between her SanitySlippage and HeelFaceTurn. (Though she was probably intended as a [[WesternAnimation/InvaderZim Zim]] {{expy}}.)
** In "Deception", Beast Boy sarcastically asks about dressing Cyborg like a washing machine for an undercover mission. Guess what Cyborg's stealth mode in ''Lego Batman 3'' was?
** In "The Beast Within", Beast Boy suggests he might take on the name Beast Man only to be promptly shot down by Raven. In the New 52, a future incarnation of Beast Boy is actually known as Beast Man.
** In an early episode of Season One, Beast Boy and Cyborg win Raven a giant stuffed chicken, which she snarks about and later abandons at the first sign of trouble. In Season Five, it turns out she's allergic to the bird.
** It's been noted that Starfire's manner of speaking is [[http://i.imgur.com/kNaMvfK.jpg very]] [[http://imgur.com/gallery/cvENbWQ similar]] to the Doge meme.
** In the episode "Episode 257Ė494 (Donít Touch That Dial)," while the Titans are browsing around the video store, a clip of a cowboy shooting at aliens plays. [[Film/CowboysAndAliens That sounds familiar.]]

[[folder:I - M]]
* InferredHolocaust: The opening to "Aftershock Part II" has a still-frame of Terra using her powers to conquer the city, with civilians running and screaming. The city looks like a war-zone by the time she's through, and Slade later says that Terra has done "unforgivable things". It's never stated outright, but Terra most likely killed a bunch of people at Slade's behest that day.
* IronWoobie: Cyborg and Red Star.
* JerkassWoobie: Raven may be snarky towards her teammates, but knowing more about her past....you'll feel sorry or her. Terra too.
* LauncherOfAThousandShips:
** Raven is commonly seen shipped with Robin, Beast Boy, Cyborg, Red X, Starfire, Terra, Slade, or others. It's hilariously parodied in [[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2364981/1/bEverybody_b_bLoves_b_bRaven_b this fanfiction]].
** Also, Robin, who is frequently shipped with Raven and Starfire, but also shipped commonly with Slade, Red X, Beast Boy, and most other guys in the series. To go a little further, he's the Launcher of a Thousand Ships for most if not all of the DC universe.
* MemeticMolester: This version of Slade is commonly seen as an {{Ephebophile}} by fans - [[DepravedBisexual for both boys and girls]]. It doesn't help that the dialogue at the climax of "Haunted" comes across as creepily sexual in nature, nor does it help the ending for "Birthmark" [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything is effectively an allegory for rape]].
* MemeticMutation:
** "Titans, Go!"
** "Evil beware, we have waffles."
** "Don't laugh. You gotta EAT the unicycle."
* MentorShip: Slade/Terra. The guilty pleasure ship of the fandom, owing to [[ManipulativeBastard several]] [[UnequalPairing key]] [[MoreThanMindControl factors]] and a [[MayDecemberRomance big age difference]]. Considerably rare for something that was canon in the original comics.
* MisaimedFandom:
** Terra falls into both types. She's ''supposed'' to be a [[AntiVillain morally gray character]], someone who [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds made horrible mistakes because of the pains of her past]], but wasn't pure evil. Instead, she has people vehemently condemning her as [[RonTheDeathEater a purely evil irredeemable psychopath]] and equally vehemently worshipping her as [[DracoInLeatherPants a blameless martyr who deserved far better than she got from the other Teen Titans]]. Ironically, the former interpretation of her being a psychopath ''was'' her character in the original comics.
** On a show to show basis, the show itself when [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo its controversial comedic successor]] is brought into discussion, with detractors of the latter complaining about the lack of continuity, characterization, drama, action, and animation style, in addition to being much more straight up comedic. What they may not realize is that these are very similar to the complaints made against ''this show'' for not existing within the DCAU proper and having a more animesque art style, taking various of liberties with a lot of characters and their depictions and having a more light-hearted and idealistic tone than the comic series it was based off of. The Terra storyline in particular was toned down in terms of both her role and fate.
* {{Moe}}:
** Starfire, hot alien babe and considering her age, is very cute! She also has a kind nature and naivety about Earth culture.
** Jericho is a male example. [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20081015233921/teentitans/images/7/7a/JerichoGuitar.jpg Just look at how cute he is!]]
* {{Mondegreen}}: Some have read the lyrics to the theme song's lyrics as ''"Never meant to be laid back delight."''
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Malchior in "Spellbound" convinces Raven to break his curse using a classic sexual predator technique; preying on her despair and loneliness. And then what ''Slade'' does to Terra and Raven throughout seasons 2 and 4 respectively is bad enough, but he didn't have to sound like he enjoyed it so much.
** Blackfire counts for trying to kill her ''own sister'' without remorse in "Betrothed".
* MostAnnoyingSound:
** Larry's... *ahem* [[DreadfulMusician rendition]] of the Japanese version of the theme song. To be fair, Ami and Yumi's vocals can be heard near the end of it.
** Gizmo's voice; doesn't help that he's easily the most obnoxious character.
** The high-pitched, male voice randomly screaming out "TEEN TITANS!" at the end of the theme song.
* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: Terra's {{Leitmotif}} prior to her FaceHeelTurn.

[[folder:N - R]]
* {{Narm}}: Trigon is serious [[spoiler:but his oft-used symbol looks like an evil number 5.]]
* NauseaFuel:
** Starfire eating Silky's cocoon and really liking the taste of it, both for the audience and implied In-Universe.
** Kitten and her boyfriend Fang, whose head is a giant spider, making out. Though it does show that Kitten at least isn't shallow.
* NeverLiveItDown:
** Dr. Light's very first reappearance has him (understandably) still so scared of Raven that her appearing to be on the edge of another demon-mode outburst makes him surrender immediately. Nobody ever remembers that by the next appearance from that, he's gotten over it, to the point that when she attempts to intimidate him into immediately surrendering again, he nonchalantly blasts her.
** After the episode "The Beast Within", a lot of fans could not forgive Robin (and to a lesser extent, the other Titans) for not only assuming the worst in Beast Boy despite it being clear he is NotHimself but also straight-up threatening to send him to jail if he could not answer where Raven was, which resulted in Beast Boy transforming into a werewolf again. The issue of Beast Boy feeling like the others don't respect him enough is also left unaddressed.
* OlderThanTheyThink: More than a few story threads, most notably Terra. (See AudienceColoringAdaptation.)
* PeripheryDemographic: Despite ostensibly being a kids show, ''Teen Titans'' (similar to the ''Franchise/DCAnimatedUniverse'', but not to the same level as the animated continuity) is very popular among teens and adults due to its good action, clever writing, and surprisingly mature themes.
* RelationshipWritingFumble:
** Season 4 made a big deal of the fact that Robin and Raven are supposed to have one of the closest relationships of the team, to the point of being surrogate siblings. The problem? The prior three seasons almost ''never'' have the two interact one-on-one. The best evidence towards any closeness is the whole "Raven entering Robin's mind after he goes crazy due to Slade's psycho-dust" incident.
** Raven and Beast Boy were always supposed to be purely platonic friends -- HeterosexualLifePartners at the most. Instead, especially in the third season, their interactions come off as almost a SlapSlapKiss-type budding romantic relationship, with Raven the {{tsundere}} and Beast Boy the DoggedNiceGuy. It's the biggest reason why they're the top FanPreferredCouple. (WordOfGod says they're supposed to be LikeBrotherAndSister. WordOfGod ALSO says they're supposed to be LikeAnOldMarriedCouple.)
* ReplacementScrappy: Brother Blood in season 3 wasn't nearly as badass and threatening as his predecessor Slade.
* RonTheDeathEater:
** Jinx gets a ''lot'' of flak from the fanfic writers for having "betrayed her friends" and turned on the HIVE Five. Never mind the fact that they were villains who repeatedly committed theft and put human lives in danger, that the HIVE Five weren't really her friends (except maybe See-More, the only one who even seems to express ''sorrow'' at the possibility of her leaving) and were explicitly depicted as inconsiderate and lacking in any sort of drive or passion... no, to the fans, the mere fact that she was a part of their group and left constitutes a heinous crime deserving of bashing. This is an unusual example of this trope, because it's usually unambiguous heroes like... well... Ron himself that get the Death Eater treatment, not a villainess who performed a [[HeelFaceTurn Heel Face Turn]].
** Terra can be both this '''and''' DracoInLeatherPants due to [[AntiVillain fluctuations between good and evil]].

[[folder:S - T]]
* TheScrappy:
** Kitten takes a lot of heat from the fans, but a lot of it's rather undeserved, as it's not for her [[SpoiledBrat unpleasant personality]] (which ''is'' detestable, even in-show) so much as the fact that she [[DieForOurShip forced Robin to date her.]] Even though the real goal behind that was [[OperationJealousy to regain Fang's attention after he broke up with her.]]
** Gizmo, who was perhaps the most commonly-appearing villain in the series, behind [[BigBad Slade.]] However, he also happened to be a whiny, self-superior BrattyHalfPint with an annoying voice and [[StaticCharacter nothing resembling]] CharacterDevelopment. Even his own teammates don't like him.
* ShipMates: Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Raven is the most common example. There is also Beast Boy/Terra - Robin/Raven or Robin/Raven - Beast Boy/Starfire. Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Terra also exists, though probably to a lesser extent. Kid Flash/Jinx is very commonly shipped alongside any of these combinations. Cyborg usually gets paired with Bumblebee, though he is occasionally paired with Jinx, creating another (much, much smaller) battle between Cyborg/Jinx and the (far more popular) [[OfficialCouple Kid Flash/Jinx]]. For a while, Robin/Starfire - Beast Boy/Terra - [[PairTheSpares Cyborg/Raven]] fics were very common.
* ShipSinking: Beast Boy and Terra in the finale.
* ShipToShipCombat:
** [[BrokenBase Beast Boy/Raven vs. Beast Boy/Terra]] is the big one. The Robin/Raven ship occasionally does smaller but still intense battle with ''both'' [[OfficialCouple Robin/Starfire]] and Beast Boy/Raven.
** Even exists in-universe, as witnessed in "For Real", which is most likely a TakeThat to the fans, considering the pairings mentioned (BB/Star and Aqualad/Bumblebee) seem designed to go against the established [[FanPreferredCouple Fan Preferred Couples]].
* ShipsThatPassInTheNight: Blackfire/Red X is rather popular, and not only have they never met but both characters only appear in a handful of episodes each.
* SpiritualLicensee: As noted on the main page, the series has a tone closer to the ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' comics than the comic it was based on thanks to its mix of comedic and dark storylines. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen It was even pitched as]] a ''Young Justice'' series. Became HilariousInHindsight when an ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' series ''was'' created and ended up being closer in tone to the original ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' comics.
* {{Squick}}: Occasionally invoked:
** Kitten and Fang's kiss in ''Date With Destiny''.
** Starfire's appetite for Silkie's cocoon.
* StoicWoobie: It's hard not to feel sympathy for Raven but she keeps to herself.
* StrawLoser: Beast Boy, who is the most dim and juvenile of the group, and whose actions are often played for comedy. His teammates see him as an unfunny jokester, with the only person [[ActuallyPrettyFunny who does enjoy his jokes]] determined to never admit it, and he is the most frequent [[TheWorfEffect Worf target]].
* StrawmanHasAPoint:
** While Beast Boy's jerkish behavior to his teammates in "The Beast Within" is uncalled for[[note]]On the other hand, considering his DNA was breaking down, he may not have been entirely or even actually at fault[[/note]], he was right in calling Raven out on how she picks on him and insults him, and the lack of respect he receives at times from the others. It helps that we get examples of this during the fight with Adonis.
** Starfire criticizes Robin at the end of "Masks" for pretending to be the villain Red X and deceiving his teammates in order to fool Slade. She's portrayed as being in the right. However, Robin makes a good point when you think about it; had they known he was Red X, they almost certainly wouldn't have attacked him convincingly and his cover could have been blown easily. (Of course, Slade knew the entire time who Red X was, but Robin's point still stands.)
** The episode "Spellbound" shows that Raven has genuine worries about not being able to connect with others because of her interests, best exemplified by her reaction to Beast Boy calling her "weird". The viewers are supposed to be sympathetic to Raven about her isolation but most of that is her own doing as she actively refuses to join the others in their fun when offered and makes no attempt to reach out to her friends to address the problem. In fact, the other Titans are never seen to be put out by her hobbies, just the fact that she refuses to socialize even a little with them.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: While the results were ultimately good, some fans were still left disappointed in comparison to the original comics, or heck, the main DC universe that had really pushed the bar in terms of animation and overall comic book adaptation. In spite of several serious storylines, there were notable changes made for a more kid friendly show, such as Terra being less of a straight-up villain, or BigBad Slade being stripped of any [[AntiVillain sympathetic motivations]], which were all one thing, but the anime-ish pratfalls seemed outright pandering if not outright narm-y.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter:
** Immortus has a very cool character concept -- that they did ''nothing'' with.
** Blackfire only appeared in ''two episodes'' and we never find out ''why'' she's so antagonistic in the first place!
** Red X, despite his popularity, almost NOTHING about him is revealed, or how he got the suit Robin used.
** Slade, in spite of making the most appearances of villain in the show, has very little revealed about who he is or even what his long term goals besides gaining an apprentice and dominating the city. It's especially bad that even after he achieved his aim after the fourth season, he almost never appears in the fifth so the Brain can take the spot as the BigBad.
** Jericho. He's Slade's son in the comics but it wasn't even alluded to in the cartoon. Although this may have been explored if the show got more seasons.
** Classic Titans villain Psimon makes a couple cameo appearances in the last few episodes. Anyone familiar with the Teen Titans comics, or the Young Justice TV show, knows that this is WAY too cool and dangerous of a villain to be left to a mere cameo.
** Kyd Wykkyd was one of the most interesting HIVE students: mute, having a Batman-esque costume and his odd demon like powers that were somewhat similar to Raven's. They did jack all with him.
** The Man-Beast form showed up a total of three times during the show's duration, the first two during its original episode.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** On a more basic level, Starfire has a deep backstory, yet she ''never'' got a season devoted to her own growth the way the other four did (with Robin and Beast Boy getting ''two'' in that they tied in to Raven and Terra's growth respectively), while the most growth we got from Starfire was her relationship with Robin.
** Another example is Robin and Beast Boy's personal relationship with each other. Throughout the show we see them developing stronger bonds with the other members, but their relationship with each other is neutral at best and tense at worst. There's never an episode where they develop a stronger bond together... though there is that episode where Robin seriously threatens to send Beast Boy to jail.
*** Especially since the ComicBook/DoomPatrol episodes give them the perfect [[Franchise/{{Batman}} common ground.]] The closest we see of them coming together is when they team up to individually take out Brain and Monsieur Mallah in the penultimate episode of the series.
** Terra's betrayal. In the comics, Terra was part of the team for dozens of issues prior to turning on the Titans. In the show, she has her debut episode, disappears for half a season before returning for the episode where she joins the team, pops up in a cameo the following episode, and betrays them one episode afterward.
*** The creators wanted to show more of Terra as a Titan, but were hampered by a budget that didn't allow for 6 regular Titans (and voice actors) plus the VillainOfTheWeek for more than 5 episodes. So they did their best by suggesting a longer tenure than what we saw, by showing that mute cameo, plus including a flashback of Terra helping the Titans catch Mumbo in her final episode that season.
** Robin's transformation into ComicBook/{{Nightwing}} is only alluded to once in the series. Despite his interest in becoming said hero, nothing ever becomes of it.
** It's never explained why Robin left Batman. While it's implied they had a falling out, "The Apprentice" shows (albeit indirectly) that Robin still has a lot of respect for Batman and considers him his father.
** Whether or not [[RelationshipWritingFumble it's romantic]], Beast Boy and Raven had one of the most complex relationships in the show... and they never managed to reach an real understanding.
* ToyShip: Beast Boy and Terra. OK, so they're not kids, but they're still two of the youngest characters in the show.

[[folder:U - W]]
* UglyCute:
** Silkie might as well be the team mascot.
** There's also those little egg-headed aliens that worshiped Raven.
** And Monster!Starfire from the episode ''Transformation''.
** Blackfire and Glgrdsklechhh's babies in ''The New Teen Titans''.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: To an extent. On the whole, the series was pretty kid-friendly overall, but it did have moments of this at times with storylines involving [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt the end of the world]], Blackmail when [[spoiler:Slade threatens to kill the Teen Titans unless Robin becomes his apprentice]], and a few [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything instances of]] MindRape. Not to mention Raven's demonic heritage would make some religious parents and viewers scared.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs:
** Any episode with Mad Mod and ''Employee of the Month'', [[spoiler:where the VillainOfTheWeek was a cube of alien tofu that was stealing cows to fuel his starship and wanted to blow up Earth after he had enough cows]].
** And then there's Larry... Having Larry interrupt the theme song tends to be the writers' way of pre-lampshading this.
** ''Mother Mae-Eye''. Enough said.
* TheWoobie: Often Starfire. Beast Boy gets little bits of Woobification throughout the series, but season five really sticks it to the guy, especially when he finds Terra.
** Plasmus. The poor guy's incapable of controlling his sludge monster form whenever he's conscious, essentially has to be kept in an artifical coma for his entire life to stay human, and in his only speaking role, he's visibly ''terrified'' of what he'll do to people when he's awake.

!![=YMMVs=] for the [[ComicBook/TeenTitans comic books]]:

[[folder:A - B]]
* AccidentalInnuendo:
** On more than one occasion during The New Teen Titans era, Comicbook/{{Nightwing}} would let Jericho, whose power was to [[BodySurf possess people]], possess him with the words: [[http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lk8uz27EK01qc7r93o1_400.png "Joey, get inside me!"]]
** [[http://static.comicvine.com/uploads/original/9/98764/1899884-loves_dick.jpg Here Starfire yells]] "I love Dick! Dick! I love Dick!" Referring to [[{{ComicBook/Robin}} Dick Grayson]], of course.
* AlasPoorScrappy: The fate of Marvin and Wendy in "Teen Titans #62". Yes, they were annoying. No, they did '''not''' deserve to be brutalized by Wonder Dog, who kills Marvin and leaves Wendy comatose and paraplegic.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Terra. A sociopath who could not be helped, or a [[StepfordSmiler broken]] little girl who got mixed up with the wrong people and let her emotions get the better of her? Did she truly think the Teen Titans were her friends, even a little bit? Did she have feelings for Garfield? [[spoiler:[[DeathIsCheap Terra 2]], and her Black Lantern version, seems to have supported the alternate views]]. Also, was she [[HoistByHisOwnPetard hoisted by her own petard]] by accident, or did she commit suicide with the intention of doing so? Was she evil at heart, or did she just hate the hypocritical "goody two-shoes" nature of the Titans? Was her death fueled by drugs, contaminated drinking water, or was it natural?
** This is also another instance where the ambiguity only came later. Terra's evilness was the whole point of her character, and the narration during her death says, in no uncertain terms, that no one taught her to hate but herself.
*** Just prior to ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'', there was a one-shot published that seemed to insinuate that Terra's psychotic behavior was the result of being drugged by Comicbook/{{Deathstroke}} (ala his kidnapping and brainwashing of [[Comicbook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]]).
* ArcFatigue:
** ''ComicBook/TitansHunt'', a complex and long story. It began with their members being kidnapped and Deathstroke hired to rescue them. Then we get a new villain society, a cheap Wolverine expy, a flying sheet, an unneeded trip to Russia, Cyborg turned into a complete robot, a new team of Titans from the future trying to kill Troia, and so on, and so on...
** ''The Culling'' in the ''ComicBook/New52''. The book's first 8 issues (most of a year) were built to get to this crossover with ''Legion Lost'', and at the end they don't even manage to defeat the bad guy.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: A few were attempted during the John's era. Some went over better than other.
** John Bryne's unpopular erasure of the Doom Patrol's past was undone thanks to a battle with Superboy Prime.
** Resurrecting Jerico with his original, pre HeelFaceTurn personality.
** Both Rose Wilson and Cassandra Cains bouts of insanity were explained away by Deathstroke drugging them during Johns final arc on the title, with Cassandra restored during it.
** Cutting down on the number of mentor titans after fans complained and making Robin the leader of the team post One Year Later.
* BaseBreakingCharacter:
** Fandom is split between Cheshire and whether or not she's an assassin who loves her children, or a sociopath who loves them so long as it's useful to her. WordOfGod from Gail Simone has it that she is indeed the latter due to nuking the entire nation of Qurac, though some fans point to her characterization not handled by Simone as the true Cheshire. Though the Qurac bombing was written in the early 1980s long before Gail Simone ever used her, which essentially means Cheshire has been a monster since then.
** Raven is considered this in some parts of the fandom. There are fans that see her as a cliched, overused character and irredeemable for the actions she pulled under her father's influence in the '90s (including destroying Tamaran), while others insist that she's still relevant to the series and that Starfire's forgiveness was good enough.
** Terra's story arc in the early 80s is an extreme example, as she was so popular that the fan perception of her FaceHeelTurn led to death threats against the creative team, who'd intended her to be evil all along.
** Cassie Sandsmark/Wonder Girl II. Many like her, others outright hate her. There's no middle ground.
** Bunker from the reboot - some like him, but many others claim that at least he wasn't an asshole like everyone else at the time.
*** Same goes for his friend Skitter.
** Damian Wayne, the current Robin, both the pre-Flashpoint and Rebirth era with some liking him and others hating him. It's not helped by the fact that he's considered a BaseBreakingCharacter in ''Franchise/{{Batman}}'' as well.
* BoringInvincibleVillain: Harvest in the New 52, particularly during ''The Culling''. Not only does he have a force field, and possess various different powers allowing to NoSell practically everything entire teams of heroes throw at him, but [[GambitRoulette he allegedly plans or at least prepares for every single possibility he encounters]]. While intimidating on paper, he makes note to point this out so often he seems more like he has no idea what he is doing and desperately trying to save face.

[[folder:C - D]]
* CommonKnowledge: Thanks to the [[AdaptationDisplacement animated series]] introducing an entire generation to the Teen Titans, many fans will commonly refer to the main five characters used in the show (Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven and Beast Boy) as being the "classic" lineup. This despite the fact that this core lineup has ''never actually existed'' outside animation -- the only time all five members were on the team together was in the early Wolfman-Perez era, and even then it had Wonder Girl and Kid Flash on top of that. In reality, the Teen Titans have had [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters dozens of different members]] that would go in and out, and there would be entire runs without any of the "Big Five". Even when DC brought back the Teen Titans to capitalize on the show, the lineup was ''still'' different what it portrayed (It started with Cyborg, Starfire and Beast Boy, and it had a Robin -- but that was Tim Drake, and it also featured Superboy, Kid Flash II, and Wonder Girl II on top of that).
* CompleteMonster:
** [[BigRedDevil Trigon the Terrible]], the ArchnemesisDad of ComicBook/{{Raven}}, is an interdimensional demonic overlord who reigns over an empire where [[AndIMustScream countless souls are kept in horrible bondage]]. Slaughtering the very cult responsible for his birth, including his mother, Trigon would go on to brutally conquer his entire dimension. Trigon has [[SerialRapist sired many children]] across the centuries, [[OffingTheOffspring destroying any]] who dare to oppose him. Seeking to expand his dominion to Earth, Trigon took the form of a handsome man and impregnated a woman named Arella, revealing his true form and taunting her afterwards. After his daughter Raven's birth, Trigon would make numerous attempts to subjugate her to his will. When she refused to join him, Trigon destroyed her home world, Azarath, before [[TheCorrupter corrupting Raven's soul]] and launching a campaign of destruction on Earth, forcing Raven to do battle with her own friends. During his invasion of Earth, Trigon reduced the island of New York to a graveyard, fusing the bodies of four million inhabitants together as part of an ever-growing spire of writhing, tormented souls. Trigon ultimately intended to [[OmnicidalManiac merge Earth with his own dimension]], happily condemning billions of lives to annihilation. Willing to exterminate entire worlds to make an example, and with trillions of deaths to his name, Trigon is the most terrifying and wicked foe the Teen Titans have ever faced.
** [[ComicBook/DoomPatrol Captain Zahl]] battled the New Teen Titans when he and his army joined Madame Rouge's attempted conquest of Zandia. Under Zahl's direction his men massacred thousands of Zandia's expat inhabitants, and captured the Titans, subjecting them to the horrors of his Devolving Pit.
** In ComicBook/New52, [[BigRedDevil Trigon]] is a being born of celestial blasphemy who willingly absorbed the collected evils of a hundred galaxies contained within the Heart of Darkness to become a supremely powerful demonic overlord. To spread his evil, Trigon would pull women from various universes into his realm, [[SerialRapist rape them]], and send them back to their universes to give birth to his demonic spawn, often leading to the women's death. Through these means, Trigon brings about the ruination of countless worlds as his brood destroy everything in their path. Conceiving a daughter, ComicBook/{{Raven}}, with a human woman named Arella, [[ArchnemesisDad Trigon]] intends to [[TheCorrupter corrupt her]] into becoming his heir by having her cut a swathe of terror throughout his realm; aside from her, Trigon disregards his other offspring, considering them disappointments. Attacking New York City, Trigon and his sons wreak havoc, and even possesses the Teen Titans into turning on each other, all as part of a ploy to ingratiate Raven into the Titans and allow her to conquer Earth in his name.
* CreatorsPet:
** Danny Chase was universally loathed by fans within a few issues of his first appearance. He was a CousinOliver (he even ''looked'' like the original Cousin Oliver) introduced to make the team seem younger, as he was only in his early teens while everyone else was pushing 20. Despite his age, he constantly argued with the other members of the team, criticized them, was supposed to be a genius superspy teenager with telekinetic powers, but then went crazy with fear whenever an actual fight took place. And when Dick was distraught at the death of Jason Todd, Danny said it was no big deal because Jason 'knew the risks'. The only people who didn't seem to grasp how loathed this character was was writer Marv Wolfman who, to this day, still insists it was the readers' fault for not "getting the character," and [[WebVideo/AtopTheFourthWall Linkara]], who calls Danny his favorite Titan in his look at the Titans history in 2013.
** As a tip, in a series about costumed superheroes with codenames, whose fans presumably enjoy reading about costumed superheroes with codenames, having a character who continually goes on about how lame costumes and codenames are and how he's too cool for a costume or codename probably isn't going to go down too well.
** It also hurt that Marv Wolfman had no idea how to write a telekinetic to complement the Titans' diverse power set. Chase's powers were mainly shown to be (at best) extremely limited: at best he could levitate himself (but only while sitting Indian-style) and throw small objects around at bad guys to annoy them. Jean Grey he wasn't; this combined with his wussy behavior during combat, made him practically useless in battle. As bad as Cypher was power-wise, at least he had training in hand-to-hand combat and was willing to take a bullet for his teammates when necessary.
** Deathstroke was also Wolfman's Creator's Pet for most of his run. When George Perez left ''The New Teen Titans'', Wolfman had free reign over Deathstroke's character, and it seemed that he had no objectivity where he was concerned. In a very jarring, sudden turn of events, Deathstroke became a KarmaHoudini for his actions, his [[CharacterizationMarchesOn earlier characterization forgotten]] and now established as an AntiVillain who bore the Titans no ill will[[note]](When Perez was still on the title, Deathstroke blamed the Titans for his son's death and took very clear, visible pleasure in setting them up to be betrayed and murdered)[[/note]] turned AntiHero, being EasilyForgiven and becoming a father-figure and ''friend'' of the Titans, including his biggest victims Nightwing, Changeling, and his own son Jericho who was rendered mute because of him. Wolfman has also stated repeatedly that he never saw Deathstroke as a villain, but as a victim of circumstance stuck in a bad situation, whose actions (including [[UnfortunateImplications sleeping with a teenage girl]]) weren't truly his fault.
** The second ComicBook/WonderGirl, Cassie Sandsmark, was felt to be this after she became team leader in ''Teen Titans'' volume 3. While talked up as a leader by the writers, Cassie didn't really do all that much and more page time was often given to her acting obnoxiously condescending or being a {{Jerkass}} to her boyfriend. Fans also felt insulted when Felicia Henderson brought Beast Boy back to the team: Rather than give him his leader role back, Henderson had Cassie continue to be leader while lacking any character development, while the older and more experienced Gar was demoted to obnoxious comic relief and treated as if he were younger.
* CryForTheDevil: Persuader, when she's finally reunited with her father and he's killed by Clock King right in front of her.
* DieForOurShip:
** Beast Boy (Changeling)/Raven vs. Beast Boy/Terra (or Terra II). Fans of the former hated there being a second Terra so much that they actively wished death on the character (they got their wish). Fans of the latter still clung to the hope that Raven would be deep-sixed for even the third Terra, citing that she would make "more sense", getting them hate from [[LesYay Terra III/Power Girl]] fans. After both later Terras were written out of continuity, the shipping competition has since been reset to being between the first Terra and Raven.
** Barbara Gordon for the Dick Grayson/Starfire shippers. Within ''Titans'' comics, Starfire is portrayed as his one true love... just as Barbara is over in the ''Batman'' comics. And from the 90s onwards, Dick was branded and written as ''much'' more of a Batman character [[note]]his solo series regularly crossed over with the other Bat-books and he would eventually take on the role of Batman, appearing in ''several'' Batman ongoings[[/note]]. To say that pairing's shippers are not happy is putting it mildly.
* DorkAge: A couple of eras qualify. Particularly the Atom-led new team of H'sann Natall hybrid teenagers. And the 90s up until the teams split into The Titans and ''ComicBook/YoungJustice''.
** Many Geoff Johns helped derail the team into a longer-lasting era of poor quality, if not being the main cause. Opinions over this vary a lot more, and whether the Dork Age began in Johns' own run or not, but Felicia Henderson's part of volume 3 is seldom ever liked.
** None have been yet so reviled as Deathstroke's team of mercenaries, under Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino. Compared to the levels of {{Wangst}} and {{Gorn}} any previous book may have had, Wallace somehow managed to turn it UpToEleven.
** The New 52 Teen Titans are this ''in spades'', to the point of being mocked ''in-universe'' by other creators. The first series was cancelled two and half years into its run, incidentally also driving the final nail into DC's Young Justice line, which at one point included teen heroes from three different comic universes. Unlikable characters, a lack of consistent pacing and logic, excessive fight scenes, ExecutiveMeddling, enough dropped subplots and characters to drive even die-hard fans away, drastic changes to once popular characters that turned them toxic, and just weird creative choices (such as incorporating elements of Grant Morrison's ''ComicBook/DoomPatrol'' for some reason, but only on a superficial level) has this era branded as one of the worst in Titans history. It was relaunched with a new creative team, but this series didn't fair much better, for the same reasons as the first, and limped along until ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'', when a new ''Teen Titans'' series was launched. Said series implicitly references the New 52 Teen Titans and jabs at how much they sucked.
** The New 52 era was also a big Dork Age for the original Teen Titans. The only characters who initially existed were Nightwing and Arsenal, and Arsenal had his own problems, and it was explicitly said that this team did not exist as the Teen Titans. Garth would later be introduced as an infant, meaning he wouldn't be in any shape to be Aqualad or Tempest... before being reintroduced ''again'' as a racist Atlantean. Donna Troy was reintroduced as a man-hating version of Wonder Woman who was ''killed''. And Wally West was reintroduced years down the line as a {{Race Lift}}ed 13-year-old delinquent with essentially none of the traits of the original Wally and loads of UnfortunateImplications surrounding his character. Needless to say, none of these changes were popular, and the original generation of Titans got the shaft big time. Dan Abnett would later Retcon the hell out of the team, saying that there ''was'' an original Teen Titans, and removing the negatively received traits of Garth and Donna, while ''ComicBook/DCRebirth'' would bring back the Pre-New 52 Wally West.
* DracoInLeatherPants: Deathstroke and the original Terra mostly share this reception. The '80s villain Eric Forrester has also gotten this treatment from a few fans and fanworks, despite the fact that he only wanted the power of Raven's soul-self and didn't really love her, as well as attempting to rape her. His supporters use the in-story reasoning that Eric was trying to save his humanity with his using of women for their souls, while turning him into a misunderstood nice guy that should date Raven.

* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Beast Boy, Kid Devil, Miss Martian and Ravager, especially in the 2000s books.
* FanNickname: [[{{Manga/Berserk}} Femto]] for New 52 Raven.
* FandomRivalry: With the ''Batman'' fandom over Nightwing. A big part of it comes from the shipping wars regarding whether Dick should be with Starfire or Barbara Gordon, but beyond that, it's the idea of what kind of character Dick should be and what the Titans mean for his character. Some like the idea of Dick finally separating himself from Batman to become his own hero with the Titans, being the kind of hero Batman isn't in the wider DCU. Others like the idea of Dick finding himself with the Titans, then returning to the Batfamily and being recognised at Bruce's greatest ally and true heir.
* FanonDiscontinuity: While there are numerous examples, one that stands out in particular is the case regarding ''Titans'' #23 by Eddie Berganza, which acted as the final issue before Eric Wallace took over. Primarily a filler issue, it basically rewrote the Fab Five's friendship as a case of Roy being a nuisance they barely put up, while also revealing he had asked Donna to marry him. However, a premonition from Lilith Clay warning Donna that her redheaded husband would die led to Donna turning him down. Also, the Titans apparently knew beforehand about Roy's heroin addiction and once found him strung out in his Speedy costume before Robin told him "get help or get out." This issue blatantly ignored everything about the Fab Five when they were younger and it was clear Eddie Berganza had no idea what he was doing, or most likely it's a case of they needed to fill the gap before the new direction. Nearly every fan of the Titans and of the Fab Five choose to pretend this story never happened. It was just that bad.
* FoeYay: Cheshire with both Roy Harper, the first Speedy, and Thomas Blake, aka Catman. She once propositioned Catman during a battle, not long after having hired two hit squads after him.

[[folder:H - J]]
* HilariousInHindsight: Thia, the evil goddess of the sun, redesigned herself as a powerful businesswoman, as seen in ''ComicBook/TheOriginOfLilith''. She had a firm named "Sun publishing Inc.". This firm has absolutely no relation with the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Publishing_Company Sun Publishing Company]], and nobody implies that this later company is led by an evil witch that sets people on fire at a whim.
** In ''Titans: Sell-Out Special'', the Titans realise that someone has done an animated TV show about them titled ''Teeny Titans''. [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans Eleven years later...]] or [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitansGo twenty-one years later...]]
* InternetBackdraft:
** The controversial "Titans: Villains For Hire" one-shot has been the subject of a great deal of (mostly negative) attention over its ending, where Ryan Choi, one of DC's few Asian superheroes, is violently slaughtered by the new team of Titans. It has even prompted a number of debates and editorials across the web over DC's handling of non-white superheroes.
** The removal of all of the minorities from the Teen Titans (including the fan-favorites Static and Blue Beetle) by incoming writer JT Krul has also prompted a sizable amount of discussion on message boards, and was even mentioned by Racialicious.com, a website which deals with racially-charged issues in politics and pop culture.
** Since volume 3's inception back in 2003, there had been a small but vocal number of fans who have stated their hatred for it, as the cult-classic series ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' was cancelled so that its characters could be "graduated" to Titan status. In the reverse, there were also fans who disliked the current book because the Young Justice characters were added and developed at the expense of older established Titans.
** ''Rise of Arsenal''. Enough said.
** Bunker has caused some minor fuss. Many critics (gay and straight alike) consider him to be a little ''too'' gay, even despite the writer's explanation that Bunker is open about his sexual preference because everybody in his hometown loved and accepted him for who he is.
** Over the years, fiery debates have come up involving the original Terra: Was she really as sociopathic as Wolfman claimed, or did she deserve to be rehabilitated and redeemed...or at the very least, kept alive? It certainly didn't help that Wolfman agreed to make Terra the sister of Mike Barr's character Geo-Force, with Barr then writing Terra as sincerely loving her brother in her private thoughts ''at the same time Wolfman was writing her as a sociopath!'' Retcons by writers like Brad Meltzer (who suggested Terra was innocent) have complicated the matter further, as well as some feeling that Wolfman "played favorites" in creating Terra to be a sociopath but never calling out Raven for more destructive actions she pulled under her father's evil influence. The Terra vs. Raven parts of the debate get particularly loaded.
* InNameOnly: The New 52 team gets accusations like this for some of its characters.
** Wonder Girl had zero connection to Wonder Woman until her father was revealed to be demigod from the Greek pantheon. She's completely unaware of this, though, so there's still no reason why she calls herself Wonder Girl beyond trademark purposes.
** Solstice received an overhaul that rendered her unrecognizable and left her with vague energy and shadow based powers. This despite being a brand new character.
** The New 52 version of Tim Drake is probably the most recent and biggest example of this for fans. For instance, his main role in the book is to be the expo speak guy who's a blatant {{Expy}} of Nightwing from the classic series, including the latter's Casanova approach towards women and winged costume. He also now has "Tim Drake" as an assumed name after being an idiot and bringing the Penguin's wrath down on his family, he didn't figure out who Batman was, has almost no down-to-earth ties anymore, and largely acts like a stupider, less sensitive parody of his former character. Instead of being a computer genius, his backstory was also tweaked to have him as a former athlete (which some believe furthers the Nightwing similarity, as Dick was an acrobat).
** And then we learn the origin of Bart Allen [[spoiler: a.k.a. "Bar Torr", a villainous and murderous revolutionary from the future with no connection to the Flash Family at all]]. To say that fans of Impulse were pissed would put it lightly.
* ItWasHisSled: Terra being TheMole, and her general [[TheSociopath sociopathic]] nature. That arc is one of the most well-remembered arcs in the comics run, one of the most influential arcs in comic book history, and it helped make the series so popular in the 80s. When a [[ComicBook/TinyTitans kids comic]] spoils this in the characters first appearance, you know that its his sled. The cartoon adaptation helped renew this spoiler, thanks to Terra's popularity (though ''that'' Terra was [[BrokenBird vastly different from]] [[PsychoForHire the original Terra]]).
* JustHereForGodzilla: The third ''Titans'' ongoing features the original Wally West, returned after not ''existing'' for the entirety of the New 52, ''and'' he has memories of the Pre-Flashpoint timeline. Needless to say, he's probably why ''Titans'' sells as well as it does.

[[folder:M - O]]
* MoralEventHorizon:
** Osiris' killing of the Persuader was an accident. He tried justifying the death of Ryan Choi and everyone else he's killed as trying to bring his sister and Black Adam back. But now he freely admits that he enjoys violence and is just as bad as everyone accused him of being.
** Superboy-Prime becoming full-on evil again after Headcase accidentally takes him away from Prime Earth. This nullifies any redemption he could have had in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' and solidifies his CompleteMonster status.
* MyRealDaddy:
** It's widely agreed that Devin Grayson (and ''maybe'' Brad Meltzer) is the only writer in recent years who ever really understood not just Roy's character, but Lian's as well.
** The creative team of Marv Wolfman and George Perez for the Titans in general. They didn't create the team but they did propel the Titans to the greatest height of their popularity, which was no less than DC's # 1 selling title. And, although they did not create the team itself, they created Raven, Cyborg, Starfire, the Nightwing persona of Dick Grayson, the Troia persona of Donna Troy, Jericho, Deathstroke, H.I.V.E., Terra, Brother Blood, Trigon, Azarath, Cheshire, the "T" shaped building... can you really imagine the group ''without'' a number of those characters or concepts being around?
* {{Narm}}: Lian Harper's funeral. The entire superhero community shows up, in their brightly colored costumes.
** Harvest. It's hard to take a "Darkseid level threat" seriously when his plans are transparently idiotic.
** The first issue of the New 52 series has Tim holding a picture of him and Bruce swinging through Gotham. It looks cool, until you question how he even got that picture. Seriously, did they pose for it? It outright ''looks'' like a comic book cover.
* NeverLiveItDown:
** Roy's heroin abuse, which was only present for one issue of Green Arrow and then followed by him going cold turkey. It doesn't help that following Lian's death he's gone back to using it.
** While there are ''many'' reasons to snark about how bad Eric Wallace's run was, absolutely no one is ever going to forget how Cinder burned off a man's dick with her vagina. It also doesn't help that this is probably the ''only'' interesting thing about Cinder.
* OneSceneWonder: Lord Damyn ([[TheMagnificent High of Highs, Best of Best]]) is a supporting character who only ever appears in two issues (#24 and #25) of ''The New Teen Titans''. [[LaughablyEvil He]] [[NotSoHarmlessVillain makes]] quite [[NiceHat an]] [[CloudCuckoolander impression,]] [[ImAHumanitarian though.]]
* OnlyTheCreatorDoesItRight: An odd case with any Teen Titans team formed with members of the [=YJ4=] (Tim Drake, Bart Allen, Cassie Sandsmark, and Conner Kent): Creator/PeterDavid's ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'' book did not create any of these characters, but he wrote their initial interactions, chemistry, and helped introduce a huge number of fans to them and comics. Especially Wonder Girl; Cassie was TheScrappy to a large number of people until Peter David made her popular enough to [[EnsembleDarkhorse win a fan held election for leader.]] If you look at the entries on this page for Geoff Johns, you can see part of the problem.

[[folder:S - T]]
* TheScrappy:
** Danny Chase. Not only did he actually look like CousinOliver, but ''everyone'' hated him. He mocked Jason Todd's death (in front of Dick Grayson, Jason's adopted brother) and his sole Crowning Moment of Anything was his own death.
** Terry Long, for being considerably older than Donna, coming off as creepy, and his tendency to make blatant passes at her friends. He actually became even more of a JerkAss in the '90s, before he was killed off in John Byrne's run of Wonder Woman.
** The Team Titans, for being a failed ''ComicBook/XForce'' CaptainErsatz. Not only that all but two were RetGone by ''ComicBook/ZeroHour'', with only Terra II and Mirage remaining. Mirage is not well liked by Dick/Kory fans due to one story involving her shapeshifting into the former to pose for an adult magazine, which angered both.
** Cassandra Sandsmark, she came off like a raging AlphaBitch after her boyfriend's death. It's worse when you remember that she started out as her school's lovable geek. Her New 52 version has similar controversy, but is also hated for being a thief, being "overtly sexualized" and having her connection with Wonder Woman only recognizeable to readers of Wondie's book (she's the daughter of Diana's half-brother, i.e. the niece of Wonder Woman, though neither of them know about it as of now).
*** Once Conner returned to the series (before the reboot), you think she wouldn't have had much reason to keep lashing out at her teammates, but some writers felt differently. Under Johns' (ironically) and others' pens since Conner's return, she had been portrayed positively and having gotten over her grief. But other writers, especially in the case of Felicia Henderson, had continued to portray her as an angry shrew, who even goes as far as to treat her back-from-the-dead boyfriend like crap (eventually leading to their breakup).
** Prysm, a member of Dan Jurgens' volume 2 team, isn't very liked by some classic fans due to coming off too naive and stereotypically feminine, spoiled, and her visual appeal mostly coming from the fact that she was nude all the time.
** Fringe from the above run is also hated, for lacking personality and never being as developed. Unlike Prysm, it's hard to find fans that can tolerate him.
** Minion from Wolfman's ''New Titans'' is either hated or ignored by most fans due to the fact that he came in during a DorkAge, and that he seemed to be pushed in as a cool new teenage character but lacked interesting traits.
** Bombshell was widely disliked by a number of fans during her brief tenure on the team. She was criticized for having very little personality and was accused of trying to ape the characterization of the recently departed fan favorite Ravager. The fact that she was a MotorMouth and a JerkAss didn't do much to help her standing with fans.
** Deathstroke's Titans team qualifies for this status as well. They are even more so ignored than Fringe and Minion, who are at least mentioned in nostalgic regard when discussing the past Titans team, whereas Slade's team of mercenaries is completely ignored save for when someone is mentioning a member that was already a Titan (Roy, Osiris) or associated with the group (Cheshire, Deathstroke). Anything beyond that is liable to be overly critical ranting about how much that run on the book sucked.
** The [=DEOrphans=], a group of metahuman kids from the DEO, were hated even more than the unpopular Titans. This was because they got in the way of the Titans' screentime and that they were simply useless at fighting or doing much to advance the plot. Their presence also caused the "Epsilon" arc to be heavily rewritten, and a bunch of other planned stories had been thrown out.
** Pantha and Baby Wildebeest had received hate and ridicule for being "awful '90s characters" from various fans, although their deaths in Infinite Crisis showed them to be more on the BaseBreakingCharacter side, as many other fans decried their horrible fate.
** Flamebird. After the first Crisis, the original Bat-Girl no longer existed and Barbara Gordon was deemed to be the original. When Marv Wolfman and George Perez decided to revamp the Titans West team for the Post-Crisis origins of the Teen Titans, Betty Kane was reintroduced as Mary Elizabeth (''"Bette"'') Kane, now with the codename Flamebird and a ValleyGirl with [[StalkerWithACrush a strong desire to get the affections and praise of Nightwing in any way]]. As Wolfman had no love for the Titans West save for Lilith and Changeling, the portrayals of the revamped versions, ESPECIALLY Bette, earned them spots high on the Titans "Scrappy" list. Flamebird wound up as a ButtMonkey-type character for years to come, even though some writers attempted to make her seem more interesting through [[InformedAbility "depths"]] in her origin (stating her physical prowess and skills that rarely seemed to be reflected). Geoff Johns started a more streamlined take on the character in the ''Beast Boy'' mini-series, and it seemed that Greg Rucka was attempting [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap to revise her into a much more competent heroine]]. The ComicBook/New52 pressed the ResetButton via the ''Batwoman'' series, as Bette now lost most of her established history (and previous upgrade), making her come off nearly TooStupidToLive and get mutilated by an enemy. She's later appeared to have gone back on track to a darker and more serious revamp in her costume, but time will tell if this change is successful.
** Golden Eagle was initially hated for being a shoe-horned attempt to give Hawkman a sidekick and knockoff in the Pre-Crisis era, and was hated Post-Crisis for being a slacker surfer-type guy who'd only fight if it could get him women and attention. [[AlasPoorScrappy He got a little sympathy after being killed off]], but after Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray retconned his death and revealed him to be a {{Jerkass}}-type villain with a grudge against Hawkman, fans had new reason to despise the guy (or the direction he was taken in).
* StrangledByTheRedString: Tim Drake ([[Comicbook/{{Robin}} Robin III]]) and Cassie Sandsmark ([[ComicBook/WonderGirl Wonder Girl II]]). Given the fact that they had a very platonic interaction before the hookup, that Wonder Girl was the girlfriend of Robin's dead best friend ComicBook/{{Superboy}}, and the reason they kissed in the first place was due to mutual mourning of said person... yeah, it was definitely a trainwreck. Fans of both Wonder Girl and Robin sighed a collective breath of relief when the pairing ended.
** ...Though the return of the subplot in the New 52 only reignited the fan rage. To the series credit, the first few issues did establish UnresolvedSexualTension between the two and succeeding issues suggested that the romance would be approached slowly and with an organic approach. Then [[AssPull issue #18 happened]]. First, [[DoggedNiceGuy Tim Drake]] kissed Solstice from out of nowhere, even though he knows she's in a relationship with Kid Flash. Then, on the next page, it's heavily implied [[ChasteHero he]] and Wonder Girl have sex, and have had sex before. And the last page reveals that [[BrainwashedAndCrazy something's very wrong with Tim]]. Later issues reveal that Trigon was manipulating him, but the writer tried to write the situation under the rug by saying he was only enhancing Tim's desires. Unfortunately, that still meant he took a famously chaste hero like Tim, forced him to have sex under the influence (ie. rape) with his LoveInterest, and then to add salt to the wound, Wonder Girl was then shown trying to get with Superboy (probably her most popular suitor) to get past the fling, Solstice promptly forgot the whole event, and everyone was written poorly for seven or eight more issues before they were cancelled.
* StrawmanHasAPoint: The evil alternate Kid Flash during ''ComicBook/TheTerrorOfTrigon'' pointed that, although they had so much UnresolvedSexualTension, Wally West is so undecided that he will never enjoy the warm kisses of Raven. And he was right.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''Titans'' becoming a villain-driven book about a team of mercenaries led by Deathstroke. The reviews for the series before the change had already been poor, but after Eric Wallace and Fabrizio Fiorentino took over, the book found its way on many "Worst Comics of 2010" lists. One common complaint was the death of Ryan Choi.

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic:
** Deathstroke's mercenary team of Titans were described by writer Eric Wallace as being bad people, but it's clear that the majority of the team was supposed to be seen as tragic and sympathetic due to their horrible backstories and the recent series of traumas that pushed them into the team. This included Cheshire and Tattooed Man losing their respective child, Osiris being haunted by the man he accidentally killed to protect his sister, and the years of sexual abuse and SurvivorsGuilt Cinder suffered from. However, any sympathy these characters might have gained was instantly crushed by the team's first actual appearance when they brutally slaughtered [[TheAtom Ryan Choi]], followed by Osiris's gradual transformation into a self-centered brat and Cinder stupidly letting a serial child rapist free because she rushed her attempt to murder him. The only member of the team who managed to retain any sense of sympathy from fans was [[ComicBook/GreenArrow Roy Harper]], who was not a part of Ryan's death and had the distinction of being manipulated by both Deathstroke ''and'' Cheshire. It helps that readers were still ''majorly'' pissed off at how poorly Roy was being handled after ''JusticeLeagueCryForJustice'' and ''Rise of Arsenal''.
** Another Titans example would have to be Cassandra Sandsmark and Tim Drake during the "One Year Later" storylines. Understandably the two are still reeling from Superboy's death, but Cassandra began to sorely grate the nerves of the readers because she TookALevelInJerkass and became an insufferable, bitter asshole. Tim came across as more sympathetic in his grief especially since the writers were deliberately ignoring parts of his backstory (like the stepmother who was nowhere to be found after his dad died), but then he became involved in a {{Wangst}} fueled on/off relationship with Cassandra that ultimately went nowhere. But what ultimately made the two unsympathetic was their constant zigzagging with Rose Wilson in the Titans, either accepting her as one of their own or viewing her as the team's token psycho and badmouthing her behind her back. In fact, Rose left the team and briefly allied herself with the new Clock King when she heard Tim and Cass profess she was a lost cause. This is all despite knowing very well that Rose's FaceHeelTurn was not of her choosing, but because her father pumped her full of drugs and drove her insane
** Yet another would be in the New 52. In an incident that was ''obviously'' supposed to garner sympathy for the character, Bunker used his psionic bricks to slam an UngratefulBastard against a brick wall, because said bastard was ungrateful for being saved by Bunker and Beast Boy, because they "looked like a bunch of..." While Bunker was pissed that he was going to use a homophobic slur (Bunker is gay himself), literally nothing implies he was. So instead of Bunker attacking someone over a slur, which still would've been a little much, he's attacking a guy over something ''he didn't even do, with no implication that he was going to do it.''
* {{Wangst}}: A staple since the eighties.
* WereStillRelevantDammit:
** The outfits from the "Culling" crossover, which basically says "We're still cool. See? Tron costumes!"
** After the fiasco the comic has been having throughout its ComicBook/New52 run DC has decided to [[http://www.avclub.com/article/exclusive-dc-preview-teen-titans-1-brings-team-dig-206791again "bring them into the digital age."]] In other words, "Oh look! They're texting, and they have smart phones! How hip and happening is that?!" It feels like an obvious attempt to latch on to what "in" with the teen and young adult crowd. The advertising for it adds a level of Narm that's [[AvertedTrope lacking]] [[NarmCharm anything to like about it.]] The covers themselves are unnaturally jarring due to showing [[OutOfCharacter RAVEN of all people acting like a phone addict.]] The same covers make it look like they're texting each other even though they're standing right next to each other and makes the team look like no such thing.
* WhatAnIdiot
** When Raven first came to Earth, to warn about the arrival of Trigon, she asked the Justice League for help. They rejected her, because Zatanna checked her and sensed a great evil power within her.\\
'''You'd expect''': that Raven simply clarifies that she is the daughter of Trigon. That he's pure evil, but she is not. She wouldn't be the first hero with an ArchnemesisDad, or the first [[BadPowersGoodPeople good person with bad powers]].\\
'''Instead''': She simply leaves, considers the JLA a hopeless case, and creates a new group instead, the Teen Titans. But even then...\\
'''Now you'd expect''': That she would explain things honestly this time.\\
'''Instead''': She keeps the Titans in the dark as much as she did with the JLA. And using her powers to make Kid Flash fall in love with her so that he joins the group is definitely [[NotHelpingYourCase not helping her case]].\\
'''Result:''' Both teams walk away from her when the truth comes to light. They only come back when Trigon is already here.
** Shimmer can change matter at will. She also says that she's not interested in fighting superheros, just to get rich.\\
'''You'd expect:''' that, with her power, she simply turns some mundane items into gold, some others into platinum, and some others into priceless jewels, and that's it: she's as rich as she may want to be.\\
'''Instead:''' She has such an awesome power... and wastes it in [[BankRobbery Bank Robberies]].
* WhatDoYouMeanitsNotPolitical: "The Return of Donna Troy" has a discussion between Troia (a brainwashed evil conqueror at the time) and Athyns. Troia claimed that the aliens she was attacking had some dangerous universal weapon, which must be destroyed on behalf of the universe. Athyns pointed that they were not surrounded by any dangerous evil army but by poor people ravaged by war, and asked [[ArmorPiercingQuestion if they had such a weapon, why didn't they attempt to defend themselves with it]]. Athyns concluded, before starting to fight, that there is no such weapon and that the Titans of Myth have lied to her. Yes, you guessed it: the comic book was published at the time of the Iraq war.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: When Raven first appeared, she could not have her Soul Self out of her body [[KryptoniteFactor for more than 5 minutes]]. One day, she failed to return to her body in time. The results were... [[MindScrew mind screwing]].
* TheWoobie:
** Kid Devil of the current generation. He has the most pathetic back story prior to joining the team, and ends up getting the worst treatment after.
** JerkassWoobie: Yes, Roy Harper murdered a supervillain, turned his back on his friends, went back on heroin, and joined Deathstroke's mercenary team for the chance to kill Deathstroke. But considering that his right arm had been hacked off, was given a prosthetic which actually causes more pain and impairs his abilities as an archer, and his daughter, Lian, died, it's hard not to feel sorry for him. This is magnified by how out-of-character his friends and family acted during ''Rise of Arsenal'', and by how his joining Deathstroke's Titans was mainly due to Cheshire, Lian's mother, guilt tripping him into joining by saying that he "owed" her for Lian's death.
