The characters of the animated series. Entries after the Teen Titans themselves are ordered alphabetically.

    open/close all folders 

Main Cast

    Robin 
  • All Men Are Perverts: He struggled with a decision about building a senior citizen center, or a pool so he could look at Starfire in a bikini.
    • He also wanted to kiss Purple Raven and he claims it was the only way to stop her.
    • In "Sidekick", he drools over Starfire in Batgirl's costume.
    • In "Grandma Voice", he comments on how good Starfire looks in her outfit.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He occasionally converses with inanimate objects, including his own limbs, with complete conviction, and is prone to episodes of schizophrenia when under stress. In "Uncle Jokes", because the status quo had changed, he also has a very low emotional threshold, shifting from overly confident to bawling his eyes out the instant he realizes he's not an elite hero.
  • Anime Hair: Due to his hair gel.
  • Babies Ever After: With Batgirl in the episode, "Staring at the Future".
  • Badass Normal: Downplayed and Deconstructed. He is only barely able to take down superhuman threats with great exertion and is nowhere near as capable as the other Titans.
  • Berserk Button: Questioning his authority is a no-no, even when you have a very good point to do so.note 
    • Don't call his staff a stick.
    • Don't mess with the status quo.
  • Blade on a Stick: His staff can produce a blade out of one of its ends.
  • Blind Without 'Em: Apparently can't see without his mask.
  • Butt Monkey: For the most part, he and Beast Boy play tennis with this and it's usually Robin's own behavior that causes this to happen to him.
  • Catch Phrase: "Titans, Go!" Lampshaded in "La Larva Amor" by Raven.
    Raven: Uh, you don't always have to shout that when we go somewhere.
  • Cerebus Retcon: The show indicates that his childhood at the circus was at times unhappy and even traumatic. This is before his parents die and he gets drawn into a life of crimefighting. Though it's mostly played for laughs.
  • Circus Brat: With the twist that all of the animals he grew up with were thieving jerkasses, leading Robin to become chronically hyper-vigilant even before he met Batman.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: Kidnaps Speedy when the archer tries to go on a date with Starfire.
    • When Cyborg's computer matching program matches Starfire with Aquaman. He tries to be like him.
  • Depending on the Writer: His lack of powers. Sometimes, he has problems taking down even one villain, and he gets an inferiority complex about it. Other times, he has no problem being a One-Man Army, capable of taking down foes that occasionally give even the other Titans trouble and can become a Smug Snake as a result.
  • Did Not Get Starfire: In several episodes, two of which are glimpses of his future. One of them shows him with Batgirl instead.
  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: In "Gorilla", he makes the Titans go through a Training from Hell at the beginning of the episode.
  • Drives Like Crazy: Drives up walls, into space, and down rainbows. His driving also caused the Batmobile to crash, and then explode.
  • Everyone Has Standards: Despite his Jerkass tendencies, he was disgusted when Raven, Beast Boy, and Cyborg tricked Starfire into thinking there's a Second Santa, knowing that Starfire is still trying to find out Earth's customs. Apparently, he does exist though.
  • Expressive Mask: His mask warps to fit his expression even moreso than in the original show. It's as if they're a part of him. The black frames are contextually static in a manner similar to eyebrows.
  • Female Gaze: Blackfire is fond of staring at his butt.
  • Freudian Excuse: Revealed in "Dude Relax" that when he was a little kid, the animals in his circus would steal his stuff when he wasn't looking. So, now he's always "on", to the point of annoying everybody when he has nothing to do.
  • Happily Married: In "Staring at the Future", he's this with Batgirl.
  • Hearing Voices: Has a talking disembodied voice in his head in "The Date". It even takes Starfire out on a date at the end of the episode.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: To a ridiculous degree, almost as if to contrast his straight-laced demeanor in the original cartoon. Some quotes showcasing this:
    • To Cyborg and Beast Boy:
      Robin: Ahahaha, and so I kicked another dirt monster into a furnace, and then I was all like: "I bet that really burns you up." It didn't hear me though. It was on fire.
    • Talking to a random citizen:
      Robin: Some people prefer swords or like lasers, but I like to use this staff, see? Just crack! Crack! Ka-kow! Right on the head! The knee! Crack! Clavicle! Whatever! Really gets the job done.
    • After Ed tells Robin that he was using him as a getaway driver and assumed Robin never noticed:
      Robin: Nope, I knew. That's why I'm not warning you about the demon. [Ed is pulled screaming to a Fate Worse Than Death by said demon] ... That's right: Master Driver!
    • He puts the entire team through hell just to get out of doing the laundry, pawning the chore off to Raven. She gets even though.
  • Hilariously Abusive Childhood: This version of Batman is strongly implied to hit Robin for small misdeeds. After leaving Batman to be his own hero, Robin still cowers in fear when he thinks Batman is around and is terrified of making him angry.
  • Hot-Blooded
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Self-conscious about his lack of powers, causing him to play up his competence or leadership skills to compensate.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: In "Super Robin", Robin gets sick of being the only normal member of the team and tries to get superpowers.
  • Jerkass: Even more so than the original cartoon. Mainly if it focuses around getting Starfire's attention or proving he is the leader.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As Flanderized as some of his negative qualities became, at his core he is still a hero who cares deeply for his friends.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Gets this when he removes his mask in "The Mask".
  • Large Ham: Another change from the original cartoon.
  • Leader Wannabe: He likes reminding the Titans that he's the leader. It sounds like bragging. His profile for the show on Cartoon Network's website states that he's the "self-proclaimed" leader of the Titans, which is confirmed in "Gorilla".
  • Naked People Are Funny: He ends up outside the Tower while naked. He's immediately chased by a group of camera-wielding fangirls and later encounters Gizmo (who puts off his attack on the Tower due to being squicked by Robin in his birthday suit).
  • Narrative Shapeshifting: Robin is pretty good at mimicking other characters while doing impressions of them. He's done Batman and the other Titans.
  • Properly Paranoid: In "Parasite", where he doubted "Parry", a parasite that appears as a growth on Starfire's skin, as an actual sentient being that the other Titans love, and kept telling them that Starfire's "friend" will take them to the far end of the galaxy and turn into an evil alien. He's rebuffed at every turn, until the end of the episode.
    • Again in "Sandwich Thief", where his outlandish claim that his stolen sandwich gained sentience after being stolen by his future self and floated away turned out to be absolutely right. Not only that, but it also decided that humanity must be destroyed.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: He's a fan of Pretty Pretty Pegasus, like Raven (though he's more open about it).
  • Sacrificed Basic Skill for Awesome Training: Despite his amazing crime fighting skills, his lack of patience makes him incapable of successfully shopping at a supermarket.
  • The Scrooge: Him being a skinflint is starting to turn into a Running Gag. Somewhat ironically, as given who he was raised by he's definitely filthy rich.
  • Sidekick: Robin's stint as Batman's understudy is referenced in the episode titled after this. Of course, the other Titans make fun of him for it.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: And that target's name is Starfire.
  • Stalker with a Crush: Towards Starfire; in "Starfire the Terrible", he has her weekly schedule on his bedroom wall.
  • Super Window Jump/There Was a Door: Destroys pieces of his own headquarters to dramatically ask people to give him a ride in "Driver's Ed".
  • Tiny-Headed Behemoth/Top-Heavy Guy: Trigon grants him a huge muscular body in "Dog Hand". While his upper body became huge, his head stays the same and his legs became shorter.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: This Robin is not the steadfast and strategic leader the Robin in the original series was. For example:
    • His solution to get rid of a few freeloaders at the very end of "In and Out"? Blow up his own base. Compounding the idiocy, he accidentally sets the timer to blow in 3 seconds when he pulls the explosive out.
    • Seems to be growing out of this in Season 2, becoming more of The Straight Man to the other Titans. For example, in "Love Monsters", when Starfire disobeys Raven about opening an Artifact of Doom and releasing two creatures, Robin immediately and sternly tells her after she's had her fun to put them back in the box, instead of being dismissive about it like he would have in Season 1.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: If ever there comes a situation where he needs to prove his superiority, expect him to do it at the expense of his friends.
  • Trouser Space: Popped Starfire's diary into his own pants in "La Larva de Amor".
  • Would Hit a Girl: He cheerfully punches Starfire across the face with a motorcycle in "Starfire the Terrible".
    • And during his "staff meetings", where he just bashes his team with a staff if they're non-compliant.

    Starfire 
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair goes from red in the original series (and the comics) to a bright pink. And to add to that, it's now even longer than before.
  • Adorkable: The voice in Robin's head calls her a "strange yet endearing alien princess".
  • Adrenaline Makeover: Gets a beefier physique, tattoos (some of which she burned into her own skin using her powers), and a rough haircut during "Mr. Butt".
  • Amusing Alien/Fish out of Water: Gets human culture even less than in the original cartoon. She thinks a sandwich would look good in her hair.
  • Annoying Younger Sibling: Blackfire tends to see her as this.
  • Anti-Villain: She becomes one in "Starfire the Terrible" where she becomes a bad guy to make Robin feel better.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Like the 2003 original show, she sports this. In "Grandma Voice", Grandma!Cyborg stopped her from going outside because of it.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't mess with her hair.
    • Don't betray her.
    • Do not break a promise. If you do, she will flip out.
    • She also got pissed off at Robin for his actions in "The Date". Then again, pretty much anyone would do that as well.
    • Having big hair.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's a lot more quick and willing to go to threatening mode if something displeases her.
    • Apparently, she makes a very good villain.
    • Blackfire certainly found this out...
  • Big Eater: As in the original series. Wins the hot dog eating contest in "Laundry Day" with ease.
  • Brutal Honesty:
    Cyborg: Guess it was kind of silly to think (Raven was) in love with Beast Boy.
    Beast Boy: And why is that so silly?
    Starfire: Because you lack redeeming qualities.
  • Cain and Abel: Abel to Blackfire's Cain.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Upon hearing about the most delicious sandwich ever:
    Starfire: The sandwich will look beautiful in my hair.
    Starfire: I am making the meatloaf for dinner.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Robin may be trying to win her over moreso than before, but someone wasn't happy when he tried to indulge himself at Purple Raven's kissing booth.
    • This is her reason for blowing up the moon in "Starfire the Terrible".
  • The Ditz: See Amusing Alien above.
    • Genius Ditz: During her whole "Starfire the Terrible" stunt, she somehow manages to turn a toaster into a bomb and uses it to blow up the moon, creates a fully functional fortress of evil out of junk, and manages to find time to build an army of robot minions. All of this from the girl who thinks that a sandwich would look good in her hair.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength
  • Don't Explain the Joke:
    • "Hehehe, it is enjoyable to laugh at someone else's misfortune."
    • "Laughing at your shortcomings makes us all feel better about ourselves."
  • Extreme Doormat: To Blackfire, which made Robin wonder why she still loves her.
  • Evil Costume Switch: In "Starfire the Terrible", after she decides to become Robin's archenemy, she makes herself a new black and purple costume with a few Spikes of Villainy.
  • Evil Laugh: Again in "Starfire the Terrible", though it's more like a cute giggle and a gargle.
  • Flaming Sword: Uses a Cool Sword imbued with Technicolor Fire she created in "Power Moves".
  • Girlish Pigtails: In "Colors of Raven", Pink Raven does her hair this way.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she's angry.
  • Literal-Minded:
    • Balloon animals: Animals stuck inside balloons.
    • Duck, Duck, Goose: Take a sack of live ducks and one goose. Start putting them on people's head.
    • Pin the Tail on the Donkey: She thinks it requires a real donkey.
    • Blind dating: She blinds Beast Boy by shooting eye beams into his eyes.
  • Love Freak
  • Mama Bear: When she thinks the other Titans broke their promise with taking care of Silkie, she loses her shit.
  • Mini Dress Of Power
  • Nice Girl: Starfire happens to be the nicest out of the Titans. So much so that when she volunteered to be Robin's archnemesis, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy mocked her until they saw how much of a villain she's become at the end.
  • Power Echoes: Her voice echoes when furious.
  • Playing with Fire: This series seems to have given her pink fireballs.
  • Rapunzel Hair: Moreso than in the original show; it comes down to her ankles.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: An insanely destructive and furious one is initiated by her during the climax of "Mr. Butt". Blackfire was the target after Starfire finally snapped following a lifetime of abuse. Being framed by Blackfire for her crimes and getting sent to space jail was the final straw for Starfire.
  • Shaking the Rump: In the beginning of "Legs", she does this in front of Raven when the Titans are dancing.
  • Technicolor Fire: Is able to create green fire in "Power Moves".
  • The Dog Bites Back: In "Mr. Butt".
  • Token Good Teammate: With the other Titans taking a huge leap in jerkass behavior, she's definitely this. The episode "Breakfast Cheese" even points this out.
    • Taken Up to Eleven in "Love Monsters". Being mean is actually a challenge for her.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Unlike the rest of the Titans, this happens to her rarely, and when it does, it's usually along with the others, rather than Starfire just being a jerk on her own. Lampshaded in "Starfire the Terrible": when she purposely becomes a villainous jerk just so Robin can have a nemesis and feel like a "real hero", the other Titans make fun of her notable lack of such qualities. This is until she proves to be really competent at being evil, so much so that she nearly beats the rest of the team, despite giving off the vibe that she's just playing pretend.
  • Tsundere: Mostly the dere, but watch out when she goes tsun.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When the Titans lose Silkie while she was away, she goes absolutely nuts. She only calms down when Silkie returns.
  • Valley Girl / Totally Radical / Pretty Fly for a Tamaranian: Trigon gives her "the power to talk like human teenagers" in "Dog Hand".
    • She does it again in "Terra-ized", towards Raven.
    Starfire: [Terra]'s all up in your man's grill, and you're all 'Uh-uh, Boo Bear's mine.'
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to insert the word "the" in amusing and inappropriate the places when she the speaks.
  • Villain Protagonist: She becomes a villain to make Robin happy when he finds himself without an Arch-Enemy.
  • Will Not Tell a Lie: Normally, but in "Starliar", Beast Boy teaches her how to lie so they can go to a party by themselves. The rest of the Titans totally believe her because she's usually trustworthy.

    Raven 
  • Actually Pretty Funny: Despite the other Titans riffing on Robin for telling uncle jokes, Raven seems to genuinely enjoy his sense of humor.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Her hair is now black instead of purple, though her original comic incarnation always had black hair. See the image link for Never Bareheaded below.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Maybe not "bad", but she does want someone who's "intense".
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl
  • Almost Kiss: With Beast Boy in "Matched". Her passionate clone in "Colors of Raven" foregoes the "Almost" part.
  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: "Staring at the Future" shows that in 30 years time, Raven defeats Trigon and is reborn as pure energy. Oh, and she controls the whole universe.
  • All-Encompassing Mantle: She wears her cowl up almost all the time in this series, when she usually only had it up for battles in the original series.
  • Badass Fingersnap: When Dr. Light takes down the other Titans in "Colors of Raven", she teleports him to prison with just a snap of her fingers.
  • Batman Gambit: Does this quite a few times, such as "Dog Hand" and "Laundry Day".
  • Berserk Button:
    • Trigon.
    • Robin refusing to do chores.
    • Dentists.
  • Beautiful All Along: As Aqualad sees this, under the hood, Raven is gorgeous.
  • Brainy Brunette: The most intelligent member out of all the Titans. She's also very knowledgeable about her spells.
  • Closet Geek: Owns a laptop and is a fan of a My Little Pony analog.
  • Daddy's Girl: Apparently, she was this when she was little. However, despite their differences, Raven does love her father deep down, becoming incredibly jealous when he starts giving gifts and attention to Starfire.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Not evil, but sometimes a Jerkass.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Even more pronounced than it was in the previous series. It helps that her fellow Titans are a lot sillier this time around.
  • Death Glare: Versus Puppy-Dog Eyes in "Matched." The puppy dog eyes win.
  • Depending on the Writer: She can either completely be monotone and deadpan, or have some variety in her vocal range and expressions.
  • Did Not Get the Boy: At the end of "Be Mine", Raven laments that she never got to tell her true feelings to Beast Boy.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: When she doesn't have her hood on.
  • Fangirl: Of Show Within a Show Pretty Pretty Pegasus.
  • Fanservice: In "Legs", many of the camera shots are on her shapely legs. She also does some provocative dancing and even had a shower scene.
  • Game Face: Whenever she's in a bad enough mood, she gets four eyes which are red and jagged looking to boot, reminiscent of her dad, Trigon.note 
  • Gass Hole: In "In and Out", while under her "Raveen" disguise, Raven lets out a big burp after drinking some soda. In hindsight, this does explain Orange Raven's behavior.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: She's half-demon, due to her father being one.
  • Hartman Hips: Even with the simplified art style, her legs are still noticeably curvy.
    • Acknowledged and a plot point in the aptly named episode "Legs".
  • Hates Being Touched
  • Hidden Depths: She hates girly stuff as seen in the episode "Girls Night Out", but she is a huge fangirl of Pretty Pretty Pegasus, but she keeps it a secret from the Titans. She also knows how to dance quite provocatively.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: Her father is the interdimensional demon Trigon, and her mother is presumably human.
  • Humanoid Abomination
  • Hypocritical Humor: She lists Beast Boy's tendency towards chewing with open mouth among her complaints regarding him, yet has done the same herself on at least a couple occasions.
  • Instant Armor: Is able to use her powers to create armor for Beast Boy to wear in "Power Moves".
  • In the Hood: Unlike in the original series, where she generally only donned it in battle, she's in her hood almost all the time in Teen Titans Go!; she's rarely shown with it down.
  • Jerkass/Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Zigzags between these two constantly.
  • Kick Chick: In "Legs", once she realizes how awesome her legs are, Raven calls herself Lady Legasus and starts fighting crime with her legs.
  • Leotard of Power: Wears a black one underneath her cloak, though it's switched out for a gold, sleeveless version during her brief stint as Lady Legasus.
    • In "Vegetables", it appears to be a two-piece, as she lifts if up several times in the episode.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother hasn't been mentioned or shown.
  • Ms. Fanservice: As Lady Legasus.
  • Motor Mouth: Of all characters, she proves capable of this in "Matched" when listing off Beast Boy's flaws.
  • Mundane Utility: She uses her powers to do pretty much everything, down to magically duplicating toiletries rather than buy new ones.
  • Never Bareheaded: Apart from a few episodes, she is never seen without her hood up.
    • Even when she became Pure Energy as a goddess in a potential future, she still somehow had her cowl on as a glowing ball of light.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Did you know Raven can create clones? Feed on children's nightmares? No? Well, she can. To be fair, she did a lot of that in the old show too, and only did the latter as part of her father's instructions on becoming a demon and that might be why she didn't do it otherwise.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Even more so than the version of her from the original series. Best showcased in how a "good dream" for her consists of murdering her father and friends before taking over the world. She also has a fondness for old people and the undead.
  • Not So Above It All: In "Nose Mouth", she's easily on par with Robin/Cyborg/Beast Boy in terms of being a jerkass. In this case, it was the result of the corruptive effects of her powers.
    • Also, at the start of "Friendship", she totally loses it when she gets transported into the Pretty Pretty Pegasus world.
  • Only Sane Woman: So far the most rational and mature member of the group. Especially evident in "Terra-ized", where she's the only one that suspects Terra is using Beast Boy while everyone else assumes Raven's just acting out of jealousy. They're not entirely wrong.
  • Perky Goth: Depending on the episode, she can get rather smiley.
  • Personal Raincloud: One with a frown on it no less.
  • Purple Eyes
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her Game Face.
  • Shaking the Rump: She does this occasionally in "Legs" without her cloak, especially when the Titans are dancing together.
  • She's Got Legs: In "Legs", the Titans realize how shapely her legs are without her cloak, especially Beast Boy. She even renames herself Lady Legasus.
  • Singing in the Shower: There's a scene with this in "Legs". She's, ah...not very good at carrying a tune.
  • The Soulless: She makes a deal with her Uncle Death to trade her soul for the lives of the Titans. He carries out his end of the bargin before Raven reveals that-psyche!-she's half-demon, so she doesn't have a soul.
  • Story-Breaker Power: She could take down anyone with just one teleport away, just ask Dr. Light. It's constantly played for laughs. While the other Titans will expend great effort trying to beat a bad guy, Raven will just make a giant fist of energy and smash them.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Played for laughs here.
  • That Makes Me Feel Angry: She begins speaking like this after the others swipe her cloak in "Legs". Robin considers it an improvement over her normal introverted personality.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: When she puts back on her cloak in "Legs", she gives Beast Boy one last look at them. Bonus points for him turning into a dog and howling when she does so!
  • Too Important to Walk: Tends to hover around a lot more than in the original series. When forced to walk around in "No Power", she's not used to walking and ends up using a walker. She then upgrades to a Segway.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Occasionally, but not as much as one would think considering how often Robin, Cyborg, and Beast Boy turn into jerks.
    • In "Salty Codgers", she intentionally lets Mad Mod turn the other Titans into old people because she finds old people adorable and leaves them that way until they die.
  • Tsundere: Towards Beast Boy in some episodes, most notably in "Matched" (when she nearly marries Beast Boy) and at the end of "Terra-ized" (where she smiles at the thought of her being in love with BB).
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: Her dad is a huge, red, multi-eyed demon capable of ruling dimensions. Raven herself is just a gray goth-like girl who otherwise looks human. At least when she isn't sporting her Game Face.
  • Unsportsmanlike Gloating: Sometimes likes to visit Jinx in jail and gloat when she's bored.
    Raven: Ha ha ha. Look at you. You're in prison.
    Jinx: I hate you.
  • Voice of the Legion/Power Echoes: When in a bad enough mood, generally with her Game Face on.
  • Woman in White: On her wedding day with Beast Boy in "Matched".

    Cyborg 
  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Can swivel his head like an owl. Justified because he's mostly mechanical.
  • All Guys Want Bad Girls: His crush on Jinx.
  • Arm Cannon: In laser, minigun, or sonic cannon flavors.
  • Berserk Button: Hates the word "responsibility" to the point that he'd ruin the future just to avoid hearing it.
  • Black Best Friend: To Beast Boy.
  • Butt Monkey: Quite possibly the most frequent victim of this.
  • Camp Straight: Don't try to deny it, he really became fabulous in this adaptation.
  • Catch Phrase: As always, "Booyah!"
  • Character Development: Not only does he respect Beast Boy's vegetarianism, but he also likes eating veggie burgers.
  • Comical Overreacting: His Freak Outs truly are a sight to behold.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Normally averted, but in "Tower Power", he becomes fully mechanical by uploading his brain into the Titans Tower mainframe. This causes him to slowly lose his humanity, talk in a Creepy Monotone, and become hostile to the Titans. However, this was because Beast Boy spills a drink on Cyborg's head and overall hard drive, which is what causes him to go from nice to cruel.
  • Dating Catwoman: With Jinx.
  • Edible Ammunition: "Meatball Party" has Cyborg firing meatballs.
  • Emotional Bruiser
  • Gatling Good: Left arm transforms into one. Counter to the Sonic Cannon in his right one from the first series.
  • Genius Ditz: He is quite knowledgeable with technology.
  • Hidden Depths: He's quite knowledgeable about Eighties pop culture, though he seems to think Emmanuel Lewis was an adult at the time Webster was produced.
  • Human Mom Nonhuman Dad: His father was apparently a toaster, wearing a tie.
  • Hover Mecha: When his mind is overtaken by Raven's cloak, he retracts his legs to act like one of these.
  • Jerkass: Cyborg makes fun of Beast Boy for getting a job to raise money to get a present for him in "Pie Bros". Cyborg didn't know about the second part, though.
    • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: They eventually make up, as they are Pie Bros.
      Beast Boy: I love pie.
      Cyborg: I love you, and pie.
  • Jetpack: Unlike the original series, he can fly around with a jetpack or rocket boots. He also can turn into one in "Colors of Raven".
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Take a look at his picture. That's a huge mandible.
  • Large Ham: Khary Payton's vocal range in this series is much broader than in the previous one. He also gives off shades of Uncle Tomfoolery. This is lampshaded in "Colors of Raven".
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Failing his weekly memory backup in "Driver's Ed" causes him to forget who Starfire is. Thankfully, by the end of the episode, a tire falls on his head to set him straight.
    Cyborg: Will someone please tell me who that strange woman is?
  • No Indoor Voice: Lampshaded in "Colors of Raven", when Red Raven complains about his screaming all the time.
  • No Water Proofing In The Future: In "Tower Power", Beast Boy accidentally spitting his soda over Cyborg is enough to cause him to malfunction.
  • Shoulder Cannon
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Jinx, although he prefers to call it "tracking".
  • Telescoping Cyborg: Has all kinds of gadgets and weapons stashed in him. It make one wonder how much of him is still human.
    • According to "Laundry Day", just his head, since Raven takes his entire body to be cleaned, leaving only his head and a small body made of wires.
  • Tinman Typist: Done while uploaded into Titans Tower by hitting the keys with the corner of his monitor.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Compared to the original series, he's prone to doing some pretty stupid stuff in this series. This is usually in tandem with Beast Boy since they're even bigger best friends in this adaption.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Like the above, this is usually in tandem with Beast Boy. As an example, in "Staring at the Future", they both hate the word "responsibility" so much that, when they went to a pleasant future where they saw how responsible the other Titans had become (and thus, "boring"), Cyborg and Beast Boy went back in time to change it so that the world would be filled with chaos, just so the two wouldn't have to have to deal with any responsibility.
  • Trigger Happy: When in doubt, Cyborg just shoots at it with lasers.
  • Uncle Tom Foolery: Very much so in this version.

    Beast Boy 
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Variant. His hair is styled different, and seems longer, than it was in the original cartoon.
  • All Men Are Perverts: He shows shades of this in "Legs".
  • Aesop Amnesia: Gets kicked off the team in "You're Fired" because he places turning into a different animal over helping the team. He does it again near the end when he should be stopping Zan from flushing himself into the sea. Lampshaded by Cyborg.
    Cyborg: Have you learned nothing, man?!
    Beast Boy: Nope, but it doesn't make me any less of a hero.
  • Berserk Button: Same as Cyborg's above: he hates the word "responsibility" enough to ruin the world just to avoid it.
    • Aqualad learned never to call him a green goblin, and to never flirt with Raven.
  • Book Dumb: He starts at 0 when he counts.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: Yells "Titans Go!" when he becomes leader in "Gorilla".
    Robin: Hey, that's my line.
  • Brain in a Jar: Becomes a head in a jar mounted on a cybernetic body in "Man Person".
  • Butt Monkey: Though in this series he isn't always one; the other Titans get hit with this occasionally.
  • Comically Missing the Point: Gets hit with this in "You're Fired" when he has a lunch date with Cyborg and thinks the Titans hate Jayna as a replacement and want him back when Cyborg says they actually love having her.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: In "Pirates", he was jealous of Aqualad and Raven hanging out.
  • Cute Little Tusk: Has a single tusk poking out of the left side of his mouth.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Subverted and Played for Laughs. In "Matched", after being shown that his one true match would be Raven, Beast Boy spend the rest of the episode trying his damnedest to get her to date him. She eventually relents and we jump cut to her about to marry him, looking as if she made the best choice of her life. Then Cyborg shows up and said his matchmaking system had erred earlier; he tells Beast Boy that his true match is with a scratching post. Beast Boy immediately obsesses over the scratching post, leaving Raven at the altar, who herself just looks as annoyed as she usually is (mostly because she had told him that he was only interested in her due to Cyborg's matchmaker result).
  • Expressive Ears: His big pointy ears droop when sad.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Gets one made out of metal in "Man Person".
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The events of "Man Person" are started by him getting a scar over his left eye fighting Cinderblock.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He tries to eat Aqualad's eye and limbs during "Pirates".
  • Jerkass: Hoo boy. The events of "Ghost Boy" cemented him as one.
  • The Load: At his worst, sometimes he goofs off rather then help the team.
  • Malaproper: With logic instead of a specific word. "Colors of Raven" sets up a joke about how Beast Boy can't count, but quickly subverts it. He can count just fine, he just starts at zero instead of one.
  • Metaphorgotten: "Well, yeah I would do some...uh, incredibly difficult stuff for that sandwich, actually!"
  • Morphic Resonance: Keeps his green skin, tusk, and usually his hair when he transforms. He occasionally exploits this by painting animals green and sending them in his place.
  • Nineties Anti-Hero: His Scar Man persona in "Man Person" is dripping with this.
  • No Nudity Taboo: When Raven has to take all the Titans clothes to clean them, the other Titans are mortified at suddenly being in the buff except for Beast Boy, who just nonchalantly goes about his business. Of course, his powers mean that he's technically naked half the time anyway, which might explain why he doesn't care.
  • Only Sane Man: Believe it or not, in the episode "Vegetables". Yes, even over Raven.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In "You're Fired", he tries to get back in the team under the alias Beast Babe.
  • The Pig Pen: Goes for weeks without soap and his room is a mess.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He may be the shortest Titan, but he can still turn into a gorilla or a T. Rex.
  • Pointy Ears
  • The Prankster: To an extreme. See Took a Level in Jerkass below.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Some of the animals forms, like Cat!BB.
  • Running on All Fours: Occasionally, even without transforming into an animal form.
  • Smug Super: Displayed this in "Gorilla"; using his gorilla form as an advantage over Robin and taking his leadership.
  • Stalker with a Crush: To Terra in "Terra-ized", then to Raven in "Matched".
  • The Stoner: Considerably less focused than his previous incarnation, even if you never see him using any mind altering substances.
    Beast Boy: Oh, wow, bubbles. Haha.
  • Talking Animal: Unlike the original series, Beast Boy retains the ability to speak while transformed into an animal.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: He purposely broke Robin's staff so he could share it with Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg. Nice job breaking it, Beast Boy.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Has a lot of these moments compared to the others. Early episode moments include replacing himself with animals he painted green during missions (out of laziness), pranking his team so much that it eventually led to them all getting killed (due to never letting up on his pranking), having a frivolous testosterone battle with Robin by ignoring him because Beast Boy was in Gorilla form and followed "the laws of the jungle, baby" (and then making a poor leader when he took over Robin's role), and letting a planet explode because he was too busy trying to think of a "cool animal form" to fight in.
  • Trouser Space: Keeps notebooks, pens, and tons of other random things in his pants.

    Silkie 
  • Accidental Hero: In "La Larva Amor" possibly. It's left ambiguous whether he meant to defeat Carlos or not.
  • Badass Adorable: He has moments of this.
  • Big Eater
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He's a grub the size of a cat.
  • Dragged into Drag:
    • By Raven in "Legendary Sandwich", as Princess Silkiesoft.
    • And again in "Hey Pizza!" where Starfire puts him in a bikini.
  • Extreme Omnivore:
    • Tried to eat Raven's toy pegasus in "Legendary Sandwich". He later ate, and regurgitated, the episode's titular sandwich.
    • In "Driver's Ed", he eats a bucket of alien berries (including the bucket), though the berries cause his face to swell up.
    • Gets combined with Big Eater in "Starliar", where he gets so hungry he starts eating everything in sight. He'll eat dirty underwear and a demon, but not tofu, of all things or creepy mouth worms.
      • Once he gets the cat food he wants, he vomits out everything else.
  • Eyes Always Shut
  • Flight: In "Dog Hand", Trigon grants him butterfly wings.
    • In "Missing", after Killer Moth dropped him into a vat of chemicals which causes him to become giant, have tiny wings, and able to talk.
  • Gender Bender: Transformed into a human woman with his own head by a power-mad Raven in "Nose Mouth".
  • The Greatest Story Never Told: Goes on a huge adventure in "La Larva Amor", but since he can't speak, no one will ever know.
  • Interspecies Romance: Between him and a human woman in "La Larva Amor".
  • Killer Rabbit: In "Starliar", it's Silkie vs. a big, scary demon. Silkie eats it right up and it screams on the way down his throat.
    • It also eats the Pain Bot.
  • Out of Focus: Silkie was featured regularly for most of the series. He has appeared less so in Season 2.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Chalk it up to the art style in this show, but Silkie is impossibly adorable here.
  • Suddenly Voiced: After getting mutated by Killer Moth at the end of "Missing".
  • Team Pet
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Brain Food", when shot by the intelligence spell, he builds a huge mecha to stop a meteor from crashing.

Antagonists

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems to be fond of Raven. However, it doesn't mean that he'd give up the Titans' souls for her.
  • Evil Uncle: He refers to himself as Raven's uncle. However, it is unknown if he's a relative or close acquaintance of Trigon.
  • Grim Reaper
  • Large Ham

See-More

    Killer Moth 

    Kitten 

    Mother Mae Eye 
  • Evil Old Folks: Looks like a granny, but will bake living people into her pies.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Obviously considering her appearance in the original show. They dial it back a bit here.
  • Human Resources: Makes her pies out of people.
  • Never Mess with Granny: An evil old lady who's capable into baking someone into pies.
  • Third Eye: The big dot on her hat is actually an eye, which she uses to hypnotize people.
  • The Voiceless: Doesn't speak a word through her first appearance. She does in her second.
  • Wicked Witch: Robin even lampshades that she is a copy of the witch from Hansel and Gretel

    Pain Bot 

    Plasmus 

    Scary Terry 

    Terra 
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the previous series, she started out good, but was persuaded into villainy by Slade. In this series, she's evil from the start. Of course, compared to the original comic incarnation of Terra, this one is pretty much spot-on.
  • Bare Your Midriff
  • Blondes Are Evil
  • Dark Action Girl: Unlike the original series, she starts off as being evil.
  • Devil in Plain Sight
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She can lift rocks with her mind.
  • Forehead of Doom
  • Icy Blue Eyes
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her eyes glow yellow when using her powers.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Beast Boy insists she has a good side in "Be Mine", and she ends up proving him correct by the end.
  • Love Interest: With Beast Boy although she never loved him, not even liked him, and only used him to hack into the Titans' computer. In "Be Mine", she ends up developing legitimate feelings for him after he sings her a love song as she's about to kill him.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She becomes Beast Boy's girlfriend so she can learn about the Tower's defenses for an unknown villain. She's actually terrible at manipulation, but everyone except Raven is Too Dumb to Live and falls for it anyway.
  • The Mole: She infiltrates the Titans for an unseen villain (likely Slade).
  • Noodle People
  • Obviously Evil
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Makes no effort in confirming her status as BB's girlfriend yet BB and the Titans sans Raven don't believe she is suspicious.
  • The Rival: To Raven. But not for BB's affection, at first maybe.
  • Trapped in Another World: She's defeated when Raven sucks her into another dimension. Along with half of the Tower.
    • Gets out in "Be Mine", but winds up back in by the end. At least she has BB with her this time!
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?

    Trigon 
  • Abusive Father: Subverted. Raven did make him seem that way to the other Titans, but he really does love his daughter.
  • Adaptational Heroism: He's usually evil incarnate, he's a loving father here.
  • Affably Evil: He's really a cool guy when he's not being the demon conqueror of all dimensions.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His original appearance.
  • Bumbling Dad: Portrayed as one, though he was largely just Obfuscating Stupidity.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He has showed that he really cares for his daughter Raven. Heck, he even said that he didn't stop Raven from becoming a hero.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The Titans (well Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg anyway) use gifts he gave them to defeat him.
  • Large Ham: When he goes into his "Behold I Am Trigon" mode.
  • Nothing Personal: Said to the other Titans when he instructs Raven to kill them to complete her training.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He plays the Bumbling Dad in order to trick Raven's friends into convincing her to be a demon and it looked as though he almost succeeded. Too bad Raven doesn't buy it one bit.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In his civilian form, he wears a pink sweater vest. He also has a Pretty Pretty Pegasus kite.
  • Satan
  • Super Empowering: Gave the Titans (sans Raven) powers as special gifts, albeit ones of questionable usefulness. Starfire got the ability to speak as an modern Earth girl and Cyborg got a dog head for a hand. Beast Boy and Robin, at least, chose decent upgrades.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: Just wants Raven to take over a dimension or two.

Others

    Aqualad 

    Batgirl 

    Batman 
  • Abusive Parents: To some extent. Robin is absolutely terrified of him, because apparently he punishes Robin corporally.
  • The Cameo: Both in pictures on the walls in Titans Tower (among other things) and has made a few quick gag appearances in person.
  • Cool Car: The Batmobile, Batman has Robin's driver's license suspended after Robin crashes it.
  • Gasshole: Always seems to be burping a lot.
  • The Ghost: Most on the time he doesn't appear but is mentioned.
  • Heroes Gone Fishing: With Commissioner Gordon.
  • Those Two Guys: With Commissioner Gordon.
  • The Voiceless: He has however burped and can be heard laughing.

    B'wana Beast 
  • Fail O'Suckyname: Cyborg keeps on making fun of his name during his audition.
  • Fusion Dance: He can fuse any two animals together. His demonstration with Silkie and a rabbit led to him being rejected from joining the Titans.
  • Loincloth: Cyborg makes fun of him for wearing one.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Like most of the "muscular" characters on this show.
  • The Voiceless

    Detective Chimp 

    Hey Pizza Guy 
  • Badass Normal: He manages to outwit two of the most powerful Titans who were trying to delay him just so they wouldn't pay for pizza.
  • Determinator: Beast Boy and Cyborg throw everything at them and he still manages to make it to the door.
  • Unknown Rival: He seems completely unaware that Cyborg and Beast Boy are trying everything they can to get a free pizza.
  • Unstoppable Delivery Guy: The episode never shows exactly how he gets to the Tower, under increasingly impossible odds, for each delivery. Subverted at the end when he fails to deliver an old man's pizza within 30 minutes. This causes Cyborg and Beast Boy to freak out.

    Más y Menos 
  • Nice Guys: They believe in the true meaning of being as from the heart, unlike Robin, who says that it's just about taking all the glory.
  • Phlebotinum Overload: They build up power while apart. If kept apart for too long, it has the potential to build beyond their ability to control it, which could destroy the Earth.
  • Super Speed: Their superpower.
  • Supreme Chef: Both of them when it comes to Spanish food.
  • The Unfavorite: Menos, to Robin because Menos = Negativity, meaning he'll only slow Más down.
  • Wonder Twin Powers: Their super speed only works when they are in contact with each other.

    Raven's Emoticlones 
Appeared in "Colors of Raven" when the mysterious prism separated Raven into five different personalities.
  • Berserk Button: Red Raven to anything that annoys her.
  • Big Eater: Orange Raven, she ate everything in the Titans' refrigerator. The clasp on her cloak is even a cheeseburger.
  • Divergent Character Evolution: The aspects of Raven's personality are given more individualization in "Colors of Raven" than they showed in the original "Nevermore". They each have their own eye color, a unique clasp for their cloak and more vocal differentiation from Tara Strong. They also have minor physical differences, such as Red Raven's pointy teeth and Orange Raven's dopey expression.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Essentially what Red Raven becomes when Robin and Starfire try to fight her. They catch her very easily afterward.
  • Exotic Eye Designs: Look very closely and you'll notice that Purple Raven's pupils are shaped like hearts.
  • Gasshole: Orange Raven is constantly belching. Also, in one scene, Pink Raven clearly farts on three rats to turn them into unicorns.
  • Girly Girl: Pink Raven, who's the happiest Raven and transforms things into Sugar Bowl counterparts.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Red Raven hits, punches, smacks, and smashes things with little provocation. She sports Raven's Game Face almost all the time and she still has sharp teeth when she's not.
  • In the Hood: All of them.
  • Jerkass: Red Raven, she'll abuse others for no reason sometimes.
  • Leotard of Power
  • Light Feminine and Dark Feminine: Pink and Purple, who are ridiculously happy and almost-sexual respectively.
  • Reality Warper: Pink Raven does a lot of this before being recaptured.
  • Shrinking Violet: Gray Raven, to the point where she vomits out of fear as a Running Gag.
  • The Slacker: Orange Raven, who has a goofy expression on her face and doesn't bother to leave the Tower with the other Ravens when they all escape.
  • The Tease: Purple Raven, who not only immediately kisses Beast Boy when she shows up, but later starts a kissing booth after she escapes into the city.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: Red and Orange Ravens to Pink Raven.
  • Valley Girl: Orange Raven.

    Second Santa 
  • All Myths Are True: He does exist.
  • Jetpack: What he travels with instead of a sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer.
  • Polar Opposite Twins: He's skinny, clean shaven, wears a green tracksuit and travels by jetpack compared to First Santa, who is overweight, bearded, wears a red suit, and flies a sleigh pulled by eight tiny reindeer.
  • Wish Fulfillment/Be Careful What You Wish For: He gives the Titans their wish of not having to wait a year for Christmas by causing an explosion in Titan Tower that puts them in a coma that they come out of on Christmas Eve.

    Sonia Conchita Hernández 

    Speedy 

    Vixen 
  • Animal Eyes: Has orange eyes with cat-like pupils.
  • My Instincts Are Showing: Would've been on the Titans, but she ate a worm while using the powers of an eagle and was rejected.
  • Power Copying: Can copy the traits of any nearby animal.
  • The Voiceless: The only sound she makes during her appearance was an eagle squawk.

    Wonder Twins
