Characters / Teen Titans Go Main Cast

Back to Main. Beware of spoilers!
    open/close all folders 

    General 
  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Every one of the Titans have been turned into gag characters who rarely ever have a serious moment in a Denser and Wackier series.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: The Titans are shown in multiple episodes to be morally reprehensible Jerkasses who often attack villains who aren't even doing anything wrong, and are most likely just heroes so they can get away with whatever they want, with the possible exceptions of Starfire, who is nicer, and Raven, who is mostly consistent with her old personality.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the episode "Snuggle Time", they actually become villains themselves and are surprisingly more effective at it than they are at being heroes.
  • Anti-Hero Team: Played with. In general they're actually more childish and less serious than the usual depictions of this trope. However this team is portrayed far less sympathetically than their previous incarnation, often times being Heroic Comedic Sociopaths with skewed morality and few traces of nobility.
  • Anti-Role Model: Supposedly they come off as this, except in the end the show tends to verge into bad morals.
  • Aww, Look! They Really Do Love Each Other: There are moments where they do get along with each other and not stab one another in the back.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: As shown in "Truth, Justice, and What?", the Titans' silliness is an ability in of itself and enables them to effortlessly defeat the turtle dudes.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: All of the Titans have color motifs, which are shown in the opening.
    • Robin: Yellow.
    • Starfire: Pink.
    • Raven: Purple.
    • Beast Boy: Green.
    • Cyborg: Blue.
  • Composite Character: They take up the identity of the Legion of Doom in "Snuggle Time", one of the most prominent villain teams in the DC universe.
  • Evil Feels Good: The reason why they turn to villainy in "Snuggle Time", because it's so much more fun than being heroes.
  • Extremity Extremist: As the League of Legs, they specialize in kicks.
  • Failure Hero: While they do succeed in stopping the bad guys every now and then, it's apparent they do a very terrible job at being heroes.
  • Heroes Gone Fishing: Most episodes focus on the Titans' daily lives rather than fighting crime.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Several episodes such as "Breakfast Cheese" and "Caged Tiger" indicate the Titans beat up the villains for the fun of it, and use being heroes as an excuse for their violent behavior. Outright confirmed in "Snuggle Time", where given the chance, they unhesitantly turn to villainy after seeing how fun it is.
  • Power Born of Madness: In "Truth, Justice, and What?", it's revealed that the Titans become so "goofy and random" after eating pizza that no one can defeat them.
  • Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: Much like the original series, the team is this. Consisting of a vigilante's former sidekick, an alien princess, a half-demon half-human hybrid, a green-skinned animal shapeshifter, and a cybernetic lifeform.
  • Rotating Protagonist: Generally the show intends to have this format, but most of the episodes end up centering around Robin.
  • There Was a Door: The Titans constantly crash through the roof or the windows when leaving or entering the Tower, especially Starfire who bursts through the roof every second episode.
  • Temporarily a Villain:
    • In "Opposites", Cyborg persuades all of the Titans to turn evil, so that his relationship with Jinx could work out. Each of the Titans even get the show's villain introduction screens.
    • Happens again in "Snuggle Time", only this time round it isn't to prove a point, but because they enjoy being evil more than being heroic. They all take up villain identities and become the new Legion of Doom, and are quite successful at being evil.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Every Titan has died at some point, with several instances where they do not get revived at the end. These include: "Ghostboy", "Super Robin", "Nature", "Parasite", "Salty Codgers", and "Scary Figure Dance".
  • The Starscream: All of the Titans have been this towards Robin on multiple occasions, either usurping him (sometimes simply because he doesn't have superpowers), or replacing him with someone else either because said person is cooler than him, or they're just plain fed-up with his abuse.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: They love Pizza, and even fought off the so-totally-not-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for it.
  • Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist: This show is sometimes likened to It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia because of this aspect.
  • Vague Age: Played straight with everyone but Cyborg, who is explicitly eighteen.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: A lot of the Titans bicker and fight a lot, although at the end of the day they're usually friends.

    Robin

Voiced by: Scott Menville

  • Abhorrent Admirer: Unlike the original series, where the attraction is clearly mutual, it's repeatedly shown that Starfire not only has no interest in him, but is genuinely repulsed by his presence.
  • The Ace: Robin tries to sell himself off as one, constantly emphasizing on his many talents. His claim seems to be at least partly true, as he's a skilled martial artist, inventor, infiltrator and business man. This served as the central focus in "Multiple Trick Pony".
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: This Robin appears to have had a more Dark and Troubled Past—he has bad memories of his childhood from his circus days and for whatever reason he's terrified of Batman. All of this may have contributed to this Robin being more unhinged.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: This Robin really distances from his usual heroic characterization and is portrayed as a selfish, narcissistic Glory Hound who beats up villains for the fun of it or to get hero-cred, while caring very little about the safety of others.
  • Adaptational Ugliness: Most versions of Robin are fairly attractive, and Dick Grayson in particular is usually the Mr. Fanservice of the DC universe, both in-universe and amongst fans. Even as a teenager he was pretty cute for his age. Besides being a general Loser Protagonist, no character (least of all Starfire) seems to find this version Robin physically attractive—at least not anywhere near enough to overlook his high-strung, overbearing personality.
  • Adaptational Wimp: This Robin is not the steadfast and strategic leader the Robin in the original series was. Instead, this Robin is prone to panic attacks and mental breakdowns over the most minuscule things. Though this is a slight case of Depending on the Writer as some episodes do portray him as being more competent than he lets on.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Unlike the self-less, confident, stern-headed leader that was the Robin of the original series, this Robin is a whiny, egotistical, obnoxious psycho with an inferiority complex.
  • Alternate Self: One of the other Robins in "The Best Robin" is the Silver Age version of Dick Grayson.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: He has at least one voice in his head, occasionally converses with inanimate objects, including his own limbs, with complete conviction, and is prone to mental breakdowns under stress.
    Cyborg: Dude's got issues.
  • Anime Hair: Due to his hair gel.
  • Attention Whore: On top of being a Glory Hound.
  • Ax-Crazy: There are times where he seems to be a hero solely because he enjoys beating up the villains rather than actually enforcing justice and keeping civilians safer. In "Breakfast Cheese" he even declares he would never give up punching things, even punching the other Titans to illustrate his point.
  • 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. This becomes significant in "Brian", where Robin is the only one who didn't have his powers stolen, because he didn't have any to begin with.
  • Bad Boss: Frequently less the team's leader than he is the team's dictator, usually by playing the role of Drill Sergeant Nasty moments. It's no wonder they constantly rebel and slack off.
  • Bald of Evil: Gains one as Dick Gravestone.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Questioning his authority is a no-no, even when you have every right to do so.
    • Don't call his staff a stick.
    • Don't mess with the group's character dynamics.
  • Black Eyes of Crazy: Robin has a notorious habit of getting these, which Starfire terms "crazy eyes". It's somewhat justified due to him wearing a Cool Mask, but due to the fact that it's expressive still falls under this trope.
  • 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.
  • Blood Knight: Robin relishes combat and punching things. As shown in "Breakfast Cheese" he is the most unwilling to give up fighting.
  • Braces of Orthodontic Overkill: In "Slumber Party," he wears very prominent headgear and braces to bed, which cause him to talk with a lisp.
  • Butt-Monkey: Several instances indicate he is the most disliked Titan on the team, largely due to his Control Freak tendencies, though at times this status shifts over to Beast Boy. More than once, the rest of the Titans have tried to find a new leader, including "Gorilla", "No Power", "Money Grandma", "Robin Backwards", and "Multiple Trick Pony".
    • In "Robin Backwards", the Titans take Robin's Bizarro counterpart as leader, because he is the complete opposite of Robin, openly stating there is nothing about Robin they liked. Robin then tries to become leader of the Bizarro Titans, but they end up hating him as well. The end of the episode has the Titans and Bizarro Titans fighting to get rid of Robin and throwing him back at each other.
    • In "Hey You, Don't Forget about Me in Your Memory", the other Titans seem to believe he's dead and take great joy in the fact, with Robin screaming in the background that he's still alive.
  • Can't Hold His Spice: In "The Spice Game," Robin is so conditioned to eating bland food like boiled potatoes that even a GRAIN of salt is too much for his sensitive tongue, treating it like someone who drank hot sauce!
  • Catch-Phrase:
    • "Titans, GO!" Lampshaded in "La Larva de Amor" by Raven.
    Raven: Uh, you don't always have to shout that when we go somewhere.
    • He also adds "BOOM!" at the end of his lame jokes in "Uncle Jokes", and kept shouting "Fresh!" while he was sleep fighting in "Nose Mouth".
  • Cerebus Retcon: The show indicates that his childhood at the circus was at times unhappy and traumatic. This is before his parents died and he gets drawn into a life of crime-fighting.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: As Captain Cankle, he's strong enough to support 1/5 of the weight of a Kaiju (despite being the Badass Normal of the team).
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: Completely averted. Fairly often Robin experiences a long line of failure, which finally ends when he decides to cheat, and he always gets away with it. Such instances include: "Artful Dodgers" and "Multiple Trick Pony".
  • 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.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Robin's grasp on the world around him is tenuous, even at the best of times.
    • In "The Date", Robin keeps hearing a voice in his head. The voice is the sane one, repeatedly telling Robin he's crazy and should be worried that he's hearing voices.
    • In "Staff Meeting", Robin is seen talking to his staff like it is an actual person, earning him odd glances from the other Titans. He then goes berserk after his staff is repetitively called a "stick", before melting down when it gets destroyed.
    • In "Sidekick", Robin is seen acting out what he fears will happen when Batman sees what the other Titans did to the Batcave, even going as far as to act out Batman slapping him. The Titans watch in concern as he twitches on the floor.
    • In "Uncle Jokes", after the team's "balance" is lost, he completely snaps and appears to go through a psychotic episode as he plays the part of all the other Titans.
    • In "Puppets, Whaaaaat?", it's shown that Robin's preferred method of staying calm is using puppets of himself and his teammates to act out scenarios where they all unquestioningly obey him. After the others discover his secret and Cyborg calls him weird, he develops "crazy eyes" and is on the verge of a meltdown before playing with his puppets with the other Titans still in the room.
    • In "Sandwich Thief", the Titans repeatedly question Robin's mental state after he comes up with increasingly insane explanations on to who stole his sandwich, where at one point Starfire suggests calling a doctor. They include his future self traveling back in time to steal the sandwich, and the sandwich taking on a life of its own and flying off. To everyone's surprise, all of Robin's illogical theories turn out to be true.
    • In "Video Game References", it's revealed he's actually started taking therapy for a lot of his odd behavior.
    • In "Yearbook Madness", he outdoes himself. Once again he becomes overwhelmed by his Inferiority Superiority Complex and is determined to be the most popular. He gives a particularly creepy vow to succeed in a Creepy Monotone and an Evil Laugh. He actively converses with the voices in his head and having them sign his yearbook while changing into them. Eventually, he loses all rationality and tricks Raven into literally magicing him into the yearbook.
    • In "Hey, Don't You Neglect Me In Your Memory", Robin's Control Freak tendencies are taken Up to Eleven. He convinces the Titans to come to high school with him while insisting they stick to the arbitrary labels he gives them (Beast Boy's a nerd, Cyborg's a jock, Raven's a basket case, Starfire's a prom queen, and he's the all-american boy next door), and constantly crane kicks Beast Boy when he doesn't act to his label, getting all five of them in detention twice. His attempt to run for Student Body President involves him dancing in his underwear, thinking that Student Body literally means who's most attractive. And when Beast Boy is elected valedictorian and he is elected salutatorian, Robin has a psychotic break and attacks all four of them while shouting random, nonsensical phrases.
  • The Cuckoolander Was Right: See Properly Paranoid below.
  • Control Freak: He has a very huge obsession with maintaining order and perfection, in particular "Uncle Jokes". In situations were he believes that things have to work a certain way, he will ignore or even destroy evidence that contradicts him, like in "Pure Protein" were after deciding that island life 'must' be a horrible and challenging experience where you have to eat bugs, he destroys their every successful attempt at enjoying themselves and easily aqquiring good food.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: One of the most prominent traits with this version of Robin, being hopelessly in love with Starfire and willing to do anything to win her over, no matter how low he has to stoop to.
    • In "The Date", he kidnaps Speedy when the archer tries to go on a date with Starfire.
    • In "Matched", when Cyborg's computer matching program matches Starfire with Aquaman, he tries to be like him.
    • When Starfire gets married in "Tamaranean Vacation", he ends up killing her husband (a giant slime alien) out of jealousy.
    • He even confronts a pot of chili when Starfire develops feelings for it.
  • Depending on the Writer: His lack of powers. Sometimes, he has trouble taking down one villain and the other Titans wait for him to finish, leading him to develop an inferiority complex. Other times, he has no problem being a One-Man Army, capable of beating up all the other Titans on his own, or taking down foes that give the rest of the Titans trouble, which leads him to become a Smug Snake as a result.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: In several episodes, two of which are glimpses of his future, shows he does not end up with Starfire. One of them shows him with Batgirl instead.
  • Disney Acid Sequence:
    • In "Dude Relax", after Beast Boy tries to get him to relax, he ends up traveling inside the couch where he meets the couch spirit.
    • "Breakfast Cheese" has an even bigger example. Robin gets bitten by a spider, and the venom induces a Pink Elephants hallucination. During which he perceives an oddly colored world featuring a green skinned Cyborg and Raven with six arms.
  • Does Not Like Spam: He doesn't work well with spices of any kind (heck, a grain of table salt is like a ghost pepper to him). He got over it eventually though, stating that the episode's moral was moderation.
  • Dream Sue: The start of "Nose Mouth" has him dreaming of Starfire being attacked by several supervillains, where Robin singlehandely beats them all up and gets the girl. In the real world, he's actually sleep fighting, which keeps all of the other Titans from their sleep.
  • 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.
  • The Eeyore: In any episode where he isn't being cocky and arrogant, he is probably wallowing in self-loathing about how he doesn't have superpowers or isn't the top hero.
  • Empowered Badass Normal:
    • Deconstructed in "Super Robin". He gains a bunch of superpowers, and his natural drive combined with these abilities ends up being so effective that he quickly eradicates all crime on the planet, putting himself and every other crime fighter out of a job, culminating in living the rest of his life in depressing mediocrity.
    • Becomes a decent one in "Dog Hand" where Trigon grants him with a muscular upper-body and super strength, that allows him to hurt Trigon himself.
    • Is a much more effective one in "Mouth Hole", after learning how to whistle.
    • Technically one in "Animals, It's Just a Word!" where he and the other Titans acquire Beast Boy's Animorphism. Though he barely ever uses it for anything useful, and lets the animal instincts take over.
  • Evil Laugh: He gives a few of these in "Power Moves" and "Boys vs. Girls".
  • Expressive Mask: His mask warps to fit his expression even more so than in the original show. It's as if it's a part of him. The black frames are contextually static in a manner similar to eyebrows.
    • The Titans even comment on his "crazy eyes" during "Puppets, Whaaaaat?", despite him wearing a mask the whole time.
  • Extremity Extremist: Taken Up to Eleven in the Titan Robot's debut episode, where he learns how to effectively utilize the left leg. It's to the point where he modifies the robot to make it's left leg a Swiss Army Weapon.
  • Fan Disservice: When he strips down to just his briefs and flexes his muscles in "Dog Hand" and "Matched". It sure scared the life out of Cyborg who bolted out of the tower.
  • Female Gaze: Whenever the audience sees his butt. After all, Blackfire is fond of staring at his butt.
  • Flanderization: Robin has become even more paranoid, narcissistic, and psychotic over time. One could still pass him off as being a Straight Man sometimes, though.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: While the show often breaks the fourth wall, Robin seems to display the most awareness of it.
    • In "The Date", what initially appears to be the Narrator actually turns out to be a voice in Robin's head.
    • In "The Mask", he seems to be aware of the existence of the original Teen Titans series.
    • In "TTG v PPG", he is the only one who can hear the Narrator from the Powerpuff Girls.
  • Freudian Excuse:
    • In "Dude Relax", it's revealed 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.
    • Also his childhood with Batman too.
    • Let's not forget the treatment from his teammates.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: His teammates are generally more annoyed by him than anything else, and seem to allow him to be leader out of pity. Raven even admits that he's her least favorite friend in "Thanksgiving," and in "Robin Backwards," they freely admit that they find nothing likable about him.
  • Future Badass: His future self is Nightwing. It's actually downplayed, as the times he has appeared shows that he's not that impressive. Though if anything, he does seem be less sillier than the younger Robin.
  • Glory Hound: One of his most defining traits in this iteration of the Titans.
  • A God Am I:
    • Quite a minor example in "Real Magic", when Raven warns him he would anger the magic god, Robin declares he is a magic god.
    • He also later proclaims himself the God of Avocados or The AvaGODo.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Parallels his Control Freak nature. If anything doesn't meet his expectations, he loses it quite easily.
  • Happily Married: In "Staring at the Future", he's 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.
    • Again in "Yearbook Madness" where he literally starts a club for people with voices in their head, and gets the voices to sign his yearbook.
    • He's able to hear the narrator from the Powerpuff Girls despite this incarnation seemingly not being able to interact with the rest of the characters unlike the old show.
  • Heartbreak and Ice Cream: In "Staff Meeting", after losing his beloved staff, he is seen cooped up in his wardrobe eating tubs of ice cream inbetween tears.
  • 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.
  • Hopeless Suitor: Towards Starfire, who spells it out several times that she's not interested.
  • Hot-Blooded: He gets pumped very easily.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: While Robin's Inferiority Superiority Complex is frequently mentioned, there are instances where he specifically brings up his desire to have powers.
    • In "Super Robin", Robin gets sick of being the only normal member of the team and tries to get superpowers.
    • In "Starfire the Terrible", he explains his true desire to Starfire.
    Robin: I just wanted to feel accepted, to be a real hero.
    • In "No Power", he states at the end it's hard being the only normal one and that since all the other Titans were just as capable as he was without their powers, he felt really meaningless.
  • Iconic Item: His staff, which he has an unhealthy attachment to.
  • In-Series Nickname: "Baby Hands" in the episode of the same name.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: He says a lot of them during "Uncle Jokes".
  • Inferiority Superiority Complex: Self-conscious about his lack of powers, causing him to play up his competence or leadership skills to compensate so the other Titans don't pull a Starscream.
  • Informed Deformity: Robin is constantly made fun of by the other Titans for being short, despite the fact he's third tallest member, with Beast Boy and Raven being shorter than him, and even discounting that he isn't noticeable shorter than most other characters. Although this is more a case of being short for his age, which is evident when comparing him to Batgirl or Rose Wilson.
  • It's All About Me: He seems to care more for his status as "lone wolf leader", than anything else.
  • I Warned You: On the rare instances when his absurd warnings do turn out to be true, he enjoys rubbing it in the other Titans' faces. See Jerkass Has a Point below.
  • Jerkass: In some episodes, mainly revolving around getting Starfire's attention or proving he is the leader. Plus, he serves as the episode's antagonist more than any other Titan. Notable instances include:
    • "Gorilla", he acts as Drill Sergeant Nasty and puts the Titans through a Training from Hell.
    • "Staff Meeting", where he begins the episode by whacking the other Titans with his staff for no good reason. Later he chops down the immortal Universe Tree so that he can acquire a magic stick for a new staff (that's alive). Then at the end, after getting his old staff back, he tosses the new staff (that he chopped the tree down for) into the bin.
    • "Power Moves", where he becomes obsessed with merging powers with Cyborg, which gets to the point where he clambers into Cyborg's body and makes him do power moves against his will, complete with an Evil Laugh.
    • "Breakfast Cheese", he displays Ax-Crazy tendencies and just wants to beat the H.I.V.E. up for the sake of beating them up. When Starfire persuades the other Titans to give up their violent tendencies, Robin continues to refuse and instead punches all of the Titans.
    • "Más y Menos", he is a complete ass to Menos for no reason and is completely biased in his mentoring. He gets rid of Menos by lying to him that Más was in the hospital, and then later dressing up as Menos himself when he comes under suspicion.
    • "Boys vs. Girls": Jealous of the attention the girls are getting, he breaks into a Government Lab and steals some "Cootie" extract, and administers it on the girls to win back Beast Boy and Cyborg.
    • In "Yearbook Madness", after being popularity hungry due to the yearbooks, he resorts to beating people up to force them to sign his yearbook.
    • In "Some of Their Parts", Robin uses the crystal from "Colors of Raven" to forcibly separate the other Titans into their core personalities and only keeps the parts he likes so he can have a efficient team. Keep in mind, he had bound Cyborg to a chair and put him through the procedure against his will.
    • In "Hey You, Don't Forget about Me in Your Memory", he forces the Titans to have their "labels" revealed, giving himself the label of "Class President". He spends the entire episode crane kicking Beast Boy just for being a "Nerd" (whom he labeled as such), and slapping a "Basket Case" label on Raven's forehead.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Despite his habit of being a mood-killer, there are several instances where his whiny, inexplicable warnings do turn out to be true. He also wishes the other Titans would just listen to him.
    • 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 where he is extremely eager to remind everyone he was right.
    Robin: I knew it, I knew it, I knew it all along. You fools just wouldn't listen, I was right and you were wrong!
    • In "Second Christmas", Robin's warning of the other Titans tricking Starfire into giving them a second Christmas turned out to be true, though he doesn't get any thanks for his warning.
    • In "Smile Bones", just as Robin anticipated, overfeeding the bellies gave them power and control over Beast Boy and Cyborg's bodies.
    • In "Hose Water", he tries to wreck Cyborg and Starfire's childish fun, giving the warning that they would regress in age. Once again his absurd warning is correct.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his severely flanderized negative qualities painting him as a Jerkass, at his core he is still a hero who cares for his friends. This is shown in "Second Christmas", where 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.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: Gets this when he removes his mask in "The Mask".
  • Large Ham: And how.
  • Leader Wannabe: He likes reminding the Titans that he's the leader, though 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".
  • Legacy Character: He's Richard Grayson, and as "The Best Robin" shows there have been several other holders of the title, including Tim Drake, Carrie Kelly, and Silver Age Richard Grayson.
  • Loser Protagonist: The show seems to take particular glee in portraying Robin as a pathetic Smug Snake barely tolerated by others who generally fails at everything he pursues.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac:
    • In "Hey Pizza!", he struggled with a decision about building a senior citizen center, or a pool so he could look at Starfire in a bikini.
    • In "Colors of Raven", he tried to kiss Purple Raven, claiming it was the only way to stop her.
    • In "Sidekick", he drools over Starfire in Batgirl's costume.
    • In "Grandma Voice", he comments that he liked how Starfire looked in her usual attire.
  • 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 frequently mimics and does impressions of other characters, and for several occasions his face literally distorts and changes to match the character he's impersonating. Examples include: "Sidekick" (Batman and Alfred), "Uncle Jokes" (all the Titans), and "Yearbook Madness" (the voices in his head).
  • No Respect Guy: Sort of. Though there are plenty of occasions where his lack of respect is warranted, due to his morally questionable actions.
  • Only Sane Man: Despite how immature he is in this series, there are quite a few instances where he takes up this role. It usually occurs when the other Titans are goofing off or messing around.
    • Most prominently in "Let's Get Serious" where all of the Titans are being immensely silly, even Raven, leading Robin to try get them to be more serious.
    • Again in "Truth, Justice, and What?", when the Titans start "running around silly and everything" after eating pizza, he tries to keep them restrained, before succumbing himself.
  • Other Me Annoys Me:
    • Happens in "Sandwich Thief", where Robin meets Nightwing, his future self and is immensely hostile to him due to believing Nightwing stole his sandwich. He is also in disbelief that Nightwing claims he "let it go", which is a value that Robin never abandoned.
    • Happens again in "Robin Backwards, when Robin meets his Bizarro World counterpart Nibor, who is everything that Robin isn't. Nibor easily wins over the other Titans, who proclaim him as their new leader. This greatly irritates Robin.
  • Pink Elephants: Robin's spider venom induced hallucination has him seeing a six-armed Raven and a green-skinned Cyborg.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Inverted. See Abhorrent Admirer above.
  • Properly Paranoid: Robin has a habit of spouting theories that defy logic, but the show has a tendency of making his ridiculous claims right, against all odds.
    • In "Parasite", he warns the other Titans that Starfire's parasite, "Parry", would end up with them fighting a giant spider monster on the other side of the galaxy. Turns out he was spot on, and the other Titans don't hear the end of it, shortly before they get crushed.
    • 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.
  • Punny Name: "Dick Gravestone" is an evil version of Robin's real name, "Dick Grayson".
  • 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.
  • Second Love: In the good future that Cyborg and Beast Boy sacrificed for the sake of avoiding responsibilities in favor of an apocalyptic Bad Future, he gets married to Batgirl.
  • The Scrooge: Him being a skinflint is starting to turn into a Running Gag. Somewhat ironically, given who he was raised by, he's definitely filthy rich. This is brought up in "Two Bumblebees and a Wasp" where he seems to have developed a Money Fetish and states "money is to be hoarded, until you have enough money that it makes more money".
  • 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.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He likes to make grandiose claims that are well beyond his actual abilities.
  • Smoke Out: As part of a running gag, Robin has a habit of using gas canisters to make a dramatic entrance or departure from a scene. Sometimes it's Played for Laughs where after the smoke clears he's still standing there, to which he slowly walks off.
  • Sociopathic Hero: There are times where he is only a hero, simply because he fights the "official villain", and otherwise he is completely devoid of heroic qualities.
    Robin: It's our job as heroes to teach them a lesson.
    Starfire: But we are always teaching, but they are never the learning.
  • Spotlight-Stealing Squad: He is the most focused on character in the series, having the highest number of episodes centering on him.
  • Stalker With a Crush: Towards Starfire; in "Starfire the Terrible", he has her weekly schedule on his bedroom wall.
  • "Stop Having Fun" Guys: Is this in the episodes "Second Christmas", "Hose Water", and "Riding the Dragon".
  • The Team Normal: The only Titan to not possess any sort of superpowers. He's constantly reminded of this either directly or indirectly by his superpowered teammates, much to his chagrin. Though there are episodes where he gets Superpowers For A Day and ends up an Empowered Badass Normal.
  • Teens Are Short: Not very apparent at first, but in the second season Robin's height is often made fun of, particularly by Cyborg in "Real Boy Adventures" and Rose in "Cool School. It's especially evident when he's put alongside Aqualad in "Let's Get Serious".
  • There Was a Door: Destroys pieces of his own headquarters to dramatically ask people to give him a ride in "Driver's Ed".
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He has died more than any other Titan, and for a lot of the deaths he isn't revived at the end of the episode, yet still appears alive and well by the next episode.
  • 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.
  • Token Human: The only 100% organic, non-mutant, pureblooded human that is.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Robin has done a number of idiotic things that have compromised his own safety.
    • In "Parasite", he puts several parasites on face in order to make a point, but they end up draining all his nutrients leaving him malnourished on the ground.
    • In "Sandwich Thief", Robin keeps punching and hurting himself in order to make Nightwing feel pain, only to find out Nightwing merely has a vague memory of the pain.
    Nightwing: I guess I remember it hurting.
    (Robin stabs himself in the knee with a birdarang)
    Nightwing: (chuckles) Oh yeah, that totally stung.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Along with Pizza, he's associated with potatoes in one episode.
  • Trouser Space: Popped Starfire's diary into his own pants in "La Larva de Amor".
  • Vocal Evolution: His Nightwing voice is noticeably deeper and more individual from his teenage one than it was in the 2003 cartoon.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Due to his immature nature and inappropriate behavior, he frequently gets these.
    • In "The Date", Starfire gives him one in the form of punching him in the face when he confesses his crimes.
  • 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, including Starfire and Raven.

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

  • Abusive Parents: In "Caramel Apples", Starfire mentions that her father was neglectful.
  • 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.
  • Adaptational Badass: On top of retaining all her powers from the original series, this Starfire also possesses Super Speed to levels her original series counterpart never had. It's sometimes implied she can reach FTL speeds.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In stark contrast to the rest of the Titans who have all become even bigger jerks, this Starfire is much nicer than her original series counterpart and displays a bit of Chronic Hero Syndrome of sorts. Her kindness is exaggerated to the point where sometimes it's stupid and might be self-harming. Though it's still largely Depending on the Writer, as other episodes depict her as big of a jerk as the other Titans.
  • Adorkable: Her status as an Amusing Alien and trying to fit in with earth customs often leads to these.
  • 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".
  • Ambiguously Bi: In "The Inner Beauty of a Cactus", while the vast majority of the people she kisses or attempts to kiss to improve her speech are male, she attempts to kiss a woman at one point.
  • Amusing Alien: Gets human culture even less in this series. For example, 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.
  • Bad Liar: She was revealed to never lie prior to "Starliar", and was still a very terrible liar before receiving training from Beast Boy.
  • Balloon Belly: All nine of them in "Smile Bones".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Like the 2003 original show, she sports this. In "Grandma Voice", Grandma Cyborg stopped her from going outside because of it.
  • The Berserker: Red Starfire is a bloodthirsty warrior.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Don't betray her.
    • Don't take Silkie away.
    • Do not break a promise. If you do, she will flip out.
    • Having big hair leaves her huddled in a fetal position rocking back and forth on the floor.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: She's a lot more quick and willing to go to threatening mode if something displeases her. Blackfire certainly found this out...
  • Big Eater: Due to her species possessing nine stomachs.
    • As in the original series. She wins the hot dog eating contest in "Laundry Day" with ease.
    • One reason why she can't play dodgeball; she eats the dodgeballs.
    • In "Grube's Fairytales", while Starfire tells the story of Little Red Riding Hood with herself as the character, she ends up eating all of the basket of goods as well as the Big Bad Wolf (Robin), before joining the wolf children in eating her grandmother.
  • Big Little Sister: She's a bit taller than Blackfire despite the latter being older than her.
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: In "No Power", Starfire yells Robin's "Titans, Go!"
  • 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.
  • Cannot Tell a Lie: Sometimes, it varies Depending on the Writer, and ranges from being a Bad Liar to Brutal Honesty. However, in "Staff Meeting", she cannot withhold the truth about breaking Robin's staff.
  • Catch-Phrase:
    • "Oh joy!" and "Wonderful!"
    • In "Video Game References", Cyborg comments Starfire always says "Ooh" after Robin announces what they're doing.
    • She tries to come up with one in "Uncle Jokes" and goes for "Boo ha ha" and "I am the cool. Shamma Lamma Mu-mu". They are rejected by Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Raven. Despite this, she keeps "Shamma Lamma Mu-mu".
  • 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.
    Later when the Titans chant "curse"
    Starfire: Meatloaf!
  • Clingy Jealous Girl:
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Due to living a lot of her life on a different planet, some of the stuff she does is...odd.
  • Color Motif: Pink, due to her Rapunzel Hair and getting an Adaptation Dye-Job, plus she seems to have a fondness for the color. Worth noting it is a change from the original series where it was orange.
  • Crazy Cat Lady: She ends up turning into this in "Cat's Fancy."
  • Cute and Psycho: She's usually sweet, cheerful and innocent. At the same time, she can really flip out when things go wrong.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Starfire is extremely susceptible to things that are cute, and cannot help acting sweet to them, especially Silkie. This plays a major role in "Love Monsters" where the Twin Destroyers of Azarath, two monsters that are capable of destroying the world, are absolutely adorable.
  • The Cutie: She's the most innocent, naive, kindhearted member of the team.
  • Depending on the Writer:
    • Her ability to lie ranges from Cannot Tell a Lie, to Brutal Honesty, and sometimes just a Bad Liar.
    • Sometimes she's attracted to Robin, sometimes she's shy about admitting her feelings, and sometimes she doesn't show the slightest interest in him.
  • The Ditz: Due to being an Amusing Alien, she is regularly prone to these. One of the biggest examples is in "Love Monsters", where Starfire is with a bomb seconds from exploding. She tells everyone to stand back before approaching the bomb. She then hugs and kisses it while pleading it not to explode.
  • Does Not Know Her Own Strength: She crushes Robin's hand in "Pie Bros" when it was actually a gesture of gratitude.
  • The Dog Bites Back: In "Mr. Butt", after Blackfire tricks her into being arrested she snaps, breaks out of jail, and beats her sister to a pulp despite Blackfire having had a Heel Realization.
  • 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."
  • Energy Blade: She can create one by using her Eye Beams to ignite a sword.
  • 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.
  • Eye Beams: Unlike the original series where she developed them mid-way through, here she's had them from the get-go. She sometimes uses them to burn through walls when she can't be bothered walking to the door.
  • Flying Firepower: She can fly, fire starbolts and Eye Beams.
  • Fish out of Water: Even more culturally Book Dumb than she was in the original show.
  • Flaming Sword: Uses a Cool Sword imbued with Technicolor Fire she created in "Power Moves".
  • Flight: She regularly glides around.
  • Friend to All Living Things: There isn't a cute animal she's come across who she doesn't treat with love and affection, from kittens, birds, pigs, and of course Silkie.
  • Genius Ditz: During her stint as "Starfire the Terrible", 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.
  • Genki Girl: She remains cheerful and upbeat even in fairly grave situations. This is addressed in "Tamaranean Vacation" where it's explained that Starfire's only coping mechanism in the hostile environment was to see the good in everything.
  • Girlish Pigtails: In "Colors of Raven", Pink Raven does her hair this way.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: When she's angry, her eyes glow green.
  • Good Is Dumb: Starfire's intelligence seems to take a hit if she's being excessively nice.
  • Graceful Ladies Like Purple: She is the most feminine of the two girls, and her costume is purple.
  • Green Eyes: Both her irises and sclera are green.
  • Hartman Hips: Not normally, but in Robin's dream in "I See You" where she becomes a mom.
    • Also "Leg Day" after the training, which are even more massive than Raven's.
  • The Heart: She is easily the kindest, most caring Titan, especially considering how her teammates have all taken a huge leap in jerkass behavior. The episode "Breakfast Cheese" even points this out. This is taken Up to Eleven in "Love Monsters", as being mean is actually a challenge for her.
  • Huge Schoolgirl: Or maybe it's just that everyone is really short, as she is at least a head taller than all the Titans other than Cyborg.
  • In-Series Nickname: She's commonly referred to as "Star".
  • Girly Bruiser: She can kick ass, but she's the girliest of them all.
  • Jerkass Ball: 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.
  • Jive Turkey / Totally Radical / Valley Girl:
    • Trigon gives her "the power to talk like human teenagers" in "Dog Hand".
    Starfire: Duude! You got it twisted. You're old man is straight up the bomb. L-O-L.
    Starfire: What's the haps, playas? Haters gonna hate.
    • 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.'
  • Kindhearted Simpleton: Played with. Starfire isn't necessarily stupid, but her naivety and ignorance are excessive and always used to emphasize her innocence.
  • Lethal Chef: A large portion of her meals would not be deemed edible by Earth standards, especially in "Parasite" where she presents mouth worms that scare everyone off. It's also revealed in "Serious Business" that she cooks her chili in the toilet.
  • 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 burning his eyes balls out.
    • This is explored in "Knowledge" where Raven gives her a lesson into Earth sayings.
  • Love Freak: She frequently gives speeches about friendship and kindness, often at inopportune moments. This serves as the focus of episode's such as "Breakfast Cheese" and "Love Monsters".
  • Mama Bear: When she thinks the other Titans broke their promise with taking care of Silkie, she completely loses it.
  • Mini Dress Of Power: Her costume includes a miniskirt.
  • Ms. Fanservice: "Two Parter: Part One" has her wearing a two-piece purple swimsuit.
  • Nice Girl: Starfire happens to be the nicest out of the Titans. So much so that when she volunteered to be Robin's arch-nemesis, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy mocked her until they saw how much of a villain she's become at the end.
  • Nobody Touches the Hair: Don't mess with her hair.
  • Pink Means Feminine: Pink is her Color Motif, and she is the most girly Titan.
  • Playing with Fire: Not literal fire, but sometimes her starbolts take on a flame like appearance that are pink.
  • Power Echoes: Her voice echoes when she gets angry.
  • Power Floats: Even though she floats around as her regular means of transport, her floating is often an accompaniment to using her powers.
  • The Power of Love: Starfire drefinitely believes in this, at least in "Fish Water". The goldfish dies anyway, as the others expected.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Inverted. Unlike the original series, where the attraction is clearly mutual, she repeatedly spells it out that she has no interest in Robin. Then again, Depending on the Writer comes in to play, as some episodes do drop hints she is hiding feelings for him.
  • Rapunzel Hair: More so 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.
  • Rose-Haired Sweetie: She has pink hair and she's usually very optimistic and cheerful.
  • Shaking the Rump: In the beginning of "Legs", she does this in front of Raven when the Titans are dancing.
  • Sleeps with Everyone but You: As close to a "G-Rated" version of this as there can be. She's open to dating just about everyone except for Robin, though Depending on the Writer, she may have SOME feelings for him..
  • Technicolor Fire: Is able to create pink fire in "Power Moves".
  • Temporarily a Villain: She becomes a villain, in an initially very loose definition of the term, to make Robin happy when he finds himself without an Arch-Enemy.
  • There Was a Door: Often smashes through walls. Taken Up to Eleven in "No Power," where she uses her Eye Beams to burn a hole through the wall right next to the door.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Raven's Tomboy.
  • Token Good Teammate: The only member of the Titans who is truly nice. She still has her moments, though.
  • Tsundere: Type B. She is mostly nice and sweet, but watch out when she gets angry.
  • Unstoppable Rage: When the Titans lose Silkie while she was away, she goes absolutely nuts. She only calms down when Silkie returns.
  • Verbal Tic: Tends to insert the word "the" and "of" in amusing and inappropriate the places when she the speaks. She also likes to say the phrase "Oh joy!"
  • 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: A bright pink in her case.

    Raven 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ttg_propd_charraven_726.png
Voiced by: Tara Strong

  • Actually Pretty Funny: While the other Titans are riffing on Robin for telling lame uncle jokes, Raven is the only seen laughing and finding them genuinely funny.
  • 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.
  • Adaptational Angst Upgrade: Inverted. Her life wasn't actually as bad as her previous incarnation, in fact she used to live a happy life with her father. There instead seems to be angst coming from her teammates being annoying idiotic jerks and her having to constantly put up with them.
  • Adaptational Badass: In the original series, Raven was a powerful spellcaster, but her magic had defined limits to them. In this show, her magic seems to have no limits and she's essentially a borderline Reality Warper who can do virtually whatever she wants (or whatever the plot needs her to do).
  • Adaptational Villainy: Unlike her original series counterpart who spent her whole life trying to deny her fate of being the harbinger of doom, this Raven lived her early life happily with Trigon and joined in his evil demon past times, having destroyed universes with him. She then had a Heel Realization some time before the start of the series and decided to be a hero.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: This Raven has more anger management issues. She is prone to violent outbursts and has a habit of attacking the other Titans if annoyed, especially Beast Boy.
  • 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.
  • All Girls Like Ponies: The one thing that can make Raven become overjoyed and girly is Pretty Pretty Pegasus, which she is obsessed with.
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: Maybe not "bad", but she does want someone who's "intense".
  • Aloof Dark-Haired Girl: She's cold and blunt, and has black hair.
  • Almost Kiss:
    • With Beast Boy in "Matched".
    • Her passionate clone in "Colors of Raven" foregoes the "Almost" part, before she does it herself in "Pirates".
    • They kiss for real in "Rocks and Water", before having another Almost Kiss which is once again interrupted by Cyborg.
  • 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.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Her banishing demons and coping with her demonic nature is one of the series' running gags.
  • Badass Bookworm: When she isn't beating up villains, getting annoyed by the other Titans, or playing with her pony dolls, she is often seen reading.
  • Badass Cape: The cloak she almost never takes off.
  • Badass Fingersnap: Usually used in conjecture with her magic and spells.
    • In "Colors of Raven", she uses this to teleport Dr. Light into prison.
    • In "Books", she also uses it to pass her books to the other Titans.
    • In "Be Mine", she uses it to open a trash hole portal on Beast Boy's request.
    • In "Real Magic", she used it to bring Robin's lifeless corpse out of a tank when he drowns.
  • Batman Gambit: Raven is quite good at doing these. Notable instances include:
    • "Legendary Sandwich" where she gets rid of the Titans by tricking them in going on a quest for a mystical sandwich.
    • "Laundry Day", where she tricks Robin into admitting his fault and promising to do laundry duty for a year.
    • "Salty Codgers", where she takes back the Titans souls from Death by feigning a deal.
    • "Nean", where she pretends to enjoy the "niceness curse" that Trigon put on her, leading him to take it back, only for it to be cast upon himself.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Beast Boy. In this series, it's evident that there's an attraction between them, but they get along even worse than in the original series which can often get violent. The violent abuse appears to be toned down after their kiss in "Rocks and Water", though.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Trigon.
    • Robin refusing to do chores.
    • Her friends when they act like idiots.
    • Dentists.
  • Beautiful All Along: As Aqualad sees this, under the hood, Raven is gorgeous.
  • Bigger on the Inside: Her cloak, as shown in "Legs" which she can hide inside and descend to very deep depths.
  • Broken Bird: Nowhere near as pronounced as the original series, but she still fits the bill of being a cold, snarky, girl who resents her Dark and Troubled Past past.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Azarath Metrion Zinthos!"
  • Character Exaggeration: She is even colder, less patient, and snarkier than the Raven of the original series.
  • Closet Geek: Owns a laptop and is a fan of a My Little Pony analog.
  • Color Motif: She has Purple Eyes, and wears a purple cloak.
  • Combat Tentacles: She can form tendrils of darkness to snare enemies, usually doing so when she's angry.
  • Creepy Monotone: Her default voice. On rare occasions, it shows traces of emotion.
  • Cruel to Be Kind: In "Nean," Raven considers herself a balance of being nice and mean in how she deals with telling the Titans not to do stupid things. Especially to Beast Boy.
  • 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.
  • Dance Battler: Raven becomes this to save the other Titans in "The Overbite".
  • Dark and Troubled Past: Not to the extent of the original series, but she is still a demon's spawn whose destiny it is to destroy the world.
  • 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 be completely monotone and deadpan, or have some variety in her vocal range and expressions. She's also either the Only Sane Man or is just as wacky as everyone else.
  • Dude Magnet: Strangely, as Starfire's status as this had lessened, Raven is the one who gets the treatment. Beast Boy, Aqulad, a group of men, and even Robin had showed interest in her. Then there was her whole stint as Lady Legasis...
  • Dull Surprise: It's difficult to make Raven look genuinely surprised, although it's not impossible to shock her.
  • Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette: When she doesn't have her hood on.
  • Emotionless Girl: Even more so than in the original series. At times, however, the only emotionless part about her is her deadpan voice.
  • Extreme Omnivore: She's initially disgusted when she finds out that the Tooth Fairy takes teeth so he can eat them, and even more disgusted by the thought of eating them herself when he challenges her to an Eating Contest, but after she tries one, she finds them to be delicious, and wins the contest easily, even finishing off the Tooth Fairy's leftovers.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Her default design has her face completely obscured, save for her eyes and mouth. It's very rare to glimpse her entire face.
  • Fangirl: Of the Show Within a Show Pretty Pretty Pegasus.
  • Flat Joy: Early in the series, she would cheer on laugh in the same Creepy Monotone. She grows out of it later on.
  • Flight: She floats around a lot more than in the original series.
    • In "No Power", it appears she's so used to flying that she's lost her ability to walk, and has to use a walker. She later switches to a segway.
    • In "Kicking a Ball and Pretending to Be Hurt", she almost forgets she has actual legs.
  • Freaky Is Cool:
    • She loves old people and finds them to be cute, hugging and kissing them as Starfire would do with puppies or kittens. This is to the extent that in "Salty Codgers" she intentionally let her friends get aged.
    • In the same episode, her friends end up dying and coming back as zombies, which makes her love them ever more.
  • Freudian Excuse:
    • Apparently, her cold, conniving nature is due to her cloak, as revealed in "Legs".
    • Subverted with the relationship with her father, as he's shown to be quite loving.
  • Game Face: Whenever she's in a bad enough mood, she gets fangs and four eyes which are red and jagged looking to boot, reminiscent of her dad, Trigon.note 
  • Gasshole: In the episode "In and Out", while under her "Ravine" disguise, Raven lets out a big burp after drinking some soda. In hindsight, this does explain Orange Raven's behavior.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: In her case, it's Red Eyes, Take Warning.
  • 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. This is acknowledged in the aptly titled episode "Legs".
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: A rare example of The Stoic having this.
  • Hates Being Touched: Raven normally hates personal displays of affection. This is averted in "Cool School".
  • Hates Everyone Equally: To an extent. This is made fun of in "Real Magic" where she's denies hating everything, before a montage is shown of her saying "hate it" in several different scenarios.
  • Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: Her father is the inter-dimensional demon Trigon, and her mother is presumably human.
  • Humanoid Abomination: She's half-demon, and when angry can transform into a shadowy four-eyed monster.
  • Hypocritical Humor: She lists Beast Boy's tendency towards chewing with open mouth among her complaints regarding him, yet she has done the same herself on at least a couple of 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, in this series she wears her hood 24/7 and is rarely seen with it down.
  • In-Series Nickname: She's often referred to as "Rave" by Cyborg, Beast Boy, and occasionally Robin. After their kiss in "Rocks and Water", Beast Boy also has a habit of calling her "Mama".
  • I'm a Humanitarian: Played for Black Comedy. In "Artful Dodgers", she is reminded that she's banned from playing dodgeball because she ate the opposing team the last time. In "Thanksgiving", she and her dad turn Batman into a turkey to serve up as Thanksgiving dinner. Human skeletons sometimes appear in freezeframes of her room, as well. In "Meatball Party", the whole plot is that she eats the rest of the team alive... admittedly, it's a Toothache Demon that pulls them into her mouth, and she does puke them back up at the episode's end when they beat it, but she's still the one who swallows when they get drawn inside.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She does truly care about the rest of her teammates. She even calls herself "Nean", as somewhere between nice and mean.
  • Kick Chick: In "Legs", once she realizes how awesome her legs are, Raven calls herself Lady Legasus and starts fighting crime with her legs.
  • Kung-Fu Wizard: Unlike the original series where she was a Squishy Wizard, this version of Raven actually has a fair amount of skill in physical fighting, especially in "Legs".
  • Literal Split Personality: She's split into five of her "emoticlones" - red, grey, purple, pink, and orange - twice, due to the team messing around with a magic crystal.
  • 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" and "Smile Bones", it appears to be a two-piece, as she lifts it up to expose her belly.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She's either this or a Guile Hero, it really depends on who her target is. Being much smarter and maturer than the other Titans, she is not above taking advantage of them when they get on her nerves.
  • Mind over Matter: She's so used to using telekinesis, she practically no longer has use for her hands. Just keep your eyes peeled for a floating object shrouded in a black aura.
  • Missing Mom: Her mother hasn't been mentioned or shown.
  • Motor Mouth: Of all characters, she proves capable of this in "Matched" when listing off Beast Boy's flaws.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Very ironic that this incarnation of her is used in such a way, considering how she was depicted as in the original show.
    • In "Legs", many of the camera shots are on her shapely legs. She also does some provocative dancing and even had a shower scene.
    • And now she's appeared in a swimsuit in "Two Parter: Part One".
    • She's wearing dancers' leotards in "The Overbite".
  • 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: Raven can do pretty much anything if the plot needs it. This is lampshaded in "Real Boy Adventures" when she says she can turn Cyborg human. When pressed for a list of her available powers, she begins listing them off. The scene cuts to four days later, where Raven finishes up by saying that she "can perfectly crack open walnuts."
  • 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. Though to be fair, she did warn them it would occur before they pressured her into using her corrupting powers.
    • Also, at the start of "Friendship", she totally loses it when she gets transported into the Pretty Pretty Pegasus world.
    • In "Let's Get Serious", she's seen as being just as silly as the other members which Robin specifically points out.
    • This is slowly becoming the norm for Raven as writers begin to dumb her down for any episode requiring either a team of idiots or for Robin to be the smart(er) one in the group.
  • Only Sane Woman: So far the most rational and mature member of the group. Especially in episodes such as "Terra-ized", and "Nose Mouth". This is the entire premise in "Crazy Day", where she has to put up with the insanity around her, and openly states she is the only one who isn't crazy.
  • Opposites Attract: With Beast Boy.
  • Perpetual Frowner: Even more so than the original series. She has a near-permanent frown as part of her default design, even in promos and the opening where the other Titans are shown smiling.
  • Personal Raincloud: One with a frown on it no less.
  • Person of Mass Destruction: She can become this if she unleashes her demonic side. We get a glimpse of it in "Nose Mouth" where she goes overboard with her Reality Warper powers and turns Jump City to ruin, before fixing it at a seconds glance afterwards.
  • Phrase Catcher: "Dem legs" as of "Legs".
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Despite being one of the shortest of the Titans, being only taller than Beast Boy, her borderline Reality Warper powers makes her one of the most powerful members. She can easily take on all the Titans at once, especially when she gets all demonic.
  • Power Echoes: When in a bad enough mood, her voice becomes demonic with a reverb effect and sounds much deeper than usual.
  • Power Floats: While she's regularly seen floating and flying, she tends to levitate whenever casting a spell or accessing her demonic form.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Unlike the original series, this Raven serves as this to Beast Boy.
  • Purple Eyes: All part of the Purple Is Powerful motif.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Her Color Motif as shown by her cloak and eyes, are an indication of her level of power.
  • 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: This is heavily lampshaded in "Legs", when the Titans realize how shapely her legs are without her cloak. This is especially the case for Beast Boy. She even renames herself Lady Legasus.
  • Ship Tease: With Beast Boy. This is actually Older Than They Think and stems back all the way to the comics, despite not being featured in the original Teen Titans animated series.
  • Singing in the Shower: There's a scene with this in "Legs". She's, ah...not very good at carrying a tune.
  • The Smart Gal: The most intelligent, logical member out of all the Titans. She's also very knowledgeable about her spells.
  • The Soulless: In "Salty Codgers", 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 bargain before Raven reveals that she's half-demon, so she doesn't have a soul. She also tells the Whisperer she doesn't have a soul to trade in "And the Award For Sound Design Goes to Rob".
    • However, Raven's claim is questionable, as she still becomes a ghost in "Ghost Boy", "Oregon Trail" and "Hot Garbage", and Robin was able to trade her soul to the Puppet Wizard in "Puppets, Whaaaaat?". In addition, one of her powers is manifesting her soul-self in the form of a raven.
  • Story-Breaker Power: Usually in the form of smashing a villain with her dark energy fist and teleporting a villain into a jail cell, hence ending what would otherwise be a long-drawn out battle. She's done so with Dr. Light, Mumbo Jumbo, and technically Terra. It's constantly played for laughs, where she abruptly ends the fight after the other Titans get kicked around.
  • The Stoic: Less emotional than the other Titans.
  • Sugar and Ice Personality: Played for laughs here.
  • Super Empowering: Trigon revealed in "Dog Hand" that much like him, Raven could grant powers to anyone else. This was confirmed in "Super Robin" where she gives Robin superpowers to teach him a lesson.
  • Superpower Lottery: Let's see. She's got; telekinesis, Flight, portal generation, teleportation, plus her dark magic practically enables anything. Check New Powers as the Plot Demands above.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She's frequently annoyed by the antics of her team, especially Beast Boy. This is particularly evident in "Dog Hand" where she is particularly disdained that her team got suckered into wishes granted by her father.
  • Teens Are Short: She was around Robin's height in the original series, but now she's barely taller than Beast Boy.
  • Temporary Bulk Change: In "Oil Drums" she takes up bodybuilding and becomes hugely muscular for the rest of the episode.
  • 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.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Starfire's Girly Girl.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: She hates girly stuff as seen in the episode "Girls Night Out". Despite this, she is a huge fangirl of Pretty Pretty Pegasus, though she initially kept this a secret from the Titans. She also knows how to dance quite provocatively.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: She's noticeably more open, sociable, and sillier in Season 2, especially after "Let's Get Serious" where she begins joining in the other Titans' idiotic activities.
  • Tsundere: She is constantly annoyed with Beast Boy, and often hurts him using dark magic. However, several episodes indicate she genuinely possesses feelings for him.
  • 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.
  • Vocal Evolution: Her voice is deeper, but at times more energetic, than it was in the original series.
  • Voice of the Legion: See Power Echoes.
  • Woman in White: On her wedding day with Beast Boy in "Matched", as well as when her cloak turns white in "Breakfast Cheese" and "I See You".

Voiced by: Greg Cipes

  • Accidental Pervert: In "Mouth Hole", when Raven walks past him, someone whistles flirtatiously. Raven mistakes it for Beast Boy and slaps him, leading him to protest his innocence.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Variant. His hair is styled different, and seems longer, than it was in the original cartoon.
  • Adaptational Badass: This Beast Boy appears to have a much greater control over his powers, being able rapidly change forms with no effort and spending far more time as an animal than his original self did. Oh, and he's now able to talk as an animal.
  • Adaptational Intelligence: Played with. While his common sense and general knowledge are much lower than his original series counterpart, he displays more skill in talents of fine arts. He has a passion for poetry, can play the guitar, an excellent singer, and composed several songs with one of them gaining him renowed fame in "BBRae".
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While Beast Boy was always depicted with a ruffian archetype, this Beast Boy is noticeably more of a jerk than his former incarnation, and is often devoid of remorse and regret over his actions.
  • 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. This is lampshaded by Cyborg.
    Cyborg: Have you learned nothing, man?!
    Beast Boy: Nope, but it doesn't make me any less of a hero.
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: He possesses green skin. In most adaptations it's explained how he got it, but this series never explores reasons.
  • Animorphism: His superpower is turning into animals.
  • Balloon Belly: He gets one in "Smile Bones", after he and Cyborg steal all of the other Titans food, and ingest it by "inhaling" it. It then gets so big that it takes on a life of it's own.
  • Belligerent Sexual Tension: With Raven.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Seeing an old guy getting free pizza after he and Cyborg slaved for days to get it and failing.
    • Just like Cyborg, he hates the word "responsibility". So much so that he ruined the world when he saw how responsible Robin, Starfire, and Raven were in a good future.
    • Aqualad learned never to call him a goblin, and to never flirt with Raven.
  • The Big Guy: Serves this role, being the Dumb Muscle of the team who relies solely on melee attacks.
  • Big Eater: Fairly often throughout the series, but especially in "Smiles Bones".
  • Book Dumb: He starts at 0 when he counts, and thinks the opposite of "up" is "sideways".
  • Borrowed Catchphrase:
    • Yells "Titans, Go!" when he becomes the leader in "Gorilla".
    Robin: Hey, that's my line.
    • He also borrows Raven's "Azarath Metrion Zinthos" in "Brain Food".
  • Brain in a Jar/Oracular Head: 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.
  • Catch-Phrase: "Dude", "Bro", and "I got this."
    • In "Matched", during Raven's list of complaints about Beast Boy, one of the things she mentions is he says "Dude" and "Bro" too much.
  • Character Exaggeration: He is significantly duller than his previous incarnation.
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: In "Hey Pizza!", try as hard as he can, he can never make the pizza guy arrive later.
  • Color Motif: Green of course. In "The Date", he even says to Cyborg "you know what my color is."
  • 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 Fangs: 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 uses every ounce of his energy to try get her interested in 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).
  • The Ditz: He is depicted as the least smartest of the Titans. This is heavily lampshaded in "Brain Food" where the Titans treat him as being excessively stupid. Indeed, he seems to be duller than usual, even being unable to pull rather than push.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: He and Cyborg engage in this during "Pie Bros", "Burger vs. Burrito", and "Yearbook Madness".
  • Expressive Ears: His big pointy ears droop when sad.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Gets one made out of metal in "Man Person".

  • Gasshole: Several episodes center on him passing gas.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: The events of "Man Person" are started by him getting a scar over his left eye fighting Cinderblock.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: In "Double Trouble", he plays "Dinosaurs and Cavemen" with Cyborg, which involves Cyborg dressing up as Fred Flinstone while Beast Boy chases him as a T-Rex and eats him up. When Cyborg complains that he doesn't like being chewed up, Beast Boy grins evilly and suggests he start running.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Cyborg.
  • Hidden Depths: He can actually be really smart when he applies himself. In "Hey You, Don't Forget about Me in Your Memory" he actually manages to become high school Valedictorian. A few episodes also show that he's a talented songwriter.
  • Hopeless Suitor: For both Raven and Terra, though Raven's secretly has feelings for him as well.
  • Insane Troll Logic: Gives a particularly interesting one in "Brain Food", and due to the other Titans being rendered even dumber at the time, no one questions said logic.
    Beast Boy: That asteroid is coming at us because of a little thing called gravity right? And gravity is controlled by the ocean. And that means, if we can kill the ocean, the asteroid will go back home.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He tries to eat Aqualad's eye and limbs during "Pirates".
  • In-Series Nickname:
    • Often called "Beastie" by Cyborg and Robin. Cyborg also refers to him as "Little Buddy" or "B.B." (sometimes simply as "B").
    • Aqualad also calls him "Little Goblin", much to his chagrin.
  • Jerkass Ball: Due to a combination of his roles as The Prankster and The Slacker.
    • The most prominent example is in "Ghost Boy", he begins with a endless tirade of pranks on the other Titans. When none of them are gullible enough to fall for them, he decides to prank naive Starfire, which ends up with him treating her like a slave. Furthermore, after his friends all die and become ghosts while trying to save his life, he just laughs at them for being ghosts while he's still alive.
    • In "Hey Pizza!", he and Cyborg are willing to kill the pizza guy in order to make him arrive late so they wouldn't have to pay for the pizza, even grinning evilly when they disintegrate the pizza place. Although they later realize what they've done and begin to panic.
    • Another example is in "Gorilla", although this one is directed specifically at Robin. After taking the form of a gorilla, he endlessly disobeys Robin's instructions, and is even more messier, lazier, and ruder than usual. When Robin finally loses it, Beast Boy challenges him for leadership and easily defeats Robin by flattening him.
    • In "Smile Bones", he and Cyborg eat up all of the food, leaving the other Titans malnourished and starving.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: A friendly guy despite of of his Jerkass Ball moments.
  • Jive Turkey: Beast Boy has some lines that be reppin the hood, yo! Seriously, John Cena (Doctor of Thuganomics era) must of been a superhero when he was young.
  • Lazy Bum: Big time. In "Dude, Relax", he the self-proclaimed master of this, and states it's probably the only thing that he is better at than Robin.
  • The Load: At his worst. Sometimes, he goofs off rather then help the team.
  • Lovable Sex Maniac: Just look at the way he ogles at Raven's legs in "Legs".
  • 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.
  • Mellow Fellow: The most chill of the Titans, which becomes a plot point, and taken to extremes, in "Dude, Relax".
  • Metaphorgotten: "Well, yeah I would do some...uh, incredibly difficult stuff for that sandwich, actually!"
  • The Mind Is a Plaything of the Body: While he's an animal, he genuinely enjoys doing whatever activity that particular animal does. For example, he's shown playing with a ball of yarn as a cat, and playing fetch by himself as a dog.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: While he's an animal, his eyes turn white and pupil-less, with the exception of gorilla and elephant.
  • 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.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: He literally broke Robin's staff so he could share it with Raven, Starfire, and Cyborg.
  • '90s Anti-Hero: His Scar Man persona in "Man Person" is dripping with this.
  • No Guy Wants an Amazon: Averted in "Oil Drums". Even after Raven gets buff, he's still attracted to her.
  • 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.
  • Older Than They Look: His tiny stature and Super-Deformed appearance make him looks more like a kid than a teen.
  • Only Sane Man: Believe it or not, on very rare occasion Beast Boy has been put in this position.
    • In "Vegetables", Beast Boy is the most rational one due to the others being brainwashed.
    • This was teased at the start of "Two Bumblebees and a Wasp", when Beast Boy is the only one who doesn't succumb to Robin's money craze, however it gets completely subverted when Beast Boy switches roles with Robin and becomes the money crazed one.
    • Happens again in "Animals, It's Just a Word", when Beast Boy gets criticized for falling for his animal instincts, but when all of the Titans get Beast Boy's powers, he's the one with the most control over his animal impulses and disciplines the other Titans.
  • Opposites Attract: With Raven.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: In "You're Fired", he tries to get back in the team under the alias Beast Babe.
  • Pet the Dog:
    • In "Pie Bros", Beast Boy finds out he doesn't have enough money to buy Cyborg a game, so he endlessly searches for a job in order to pay for it. He finally finds a particularly unpleasant one at a pie restaurant and slaves day in-and-out to earn enough money for his friend.
    • In "Starliar", when Beast Boy hears that Starfire got invited to the party, he requests Starfire lie to the other Titans due to being genuinely sensitive about their feelings. When Starfire's lies get out of hand, and the Titans become mad at each other, he once again tries to resolve the issue by telling Starfire to ease up on the lies as well as suggesting they stay behind to fix it.
    • In "Vegetables", where he plays the Only Sane Man, he tries to get the other Titans to eat healthier. He later stands up for all of the Titans’ freedom to choose which food they want.
  • The Pig Pen: Goes for weeks without soap and his room is a mess. He's even seen turning into a pig and sleeping in the messy heap.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: His level of intelligence seems to vary Depending on the Writer, which ranges from being somewhat dull to being a full-blown moron. On rare occasions, he shows a glimpse of intelligence.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He may be the shortest Titan, but he can still turn into a gorilla or a T. Rex.
  • Pointy Ears: Which, along with his green skin, makes Aqualad call him a goblin.
  • The Prankster: To the extreme, especially in "Ghost Boy" where he goes overboard. See Jerkass Ball above.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Some of the animals forms, like such as his Cat BB.
  • Running on All Fours: Occasionally, even without transforming into an animal form.
  • Shaking the Rump: In "The Fourth Wall", he does his "underpants dance" towards the fourth wall, much to Raven's annoyance.
  • Ship Tease: With Raven. This is actually Older Than They Think and stems back all the way to the comics, despite not being featured in the original Teen Titans animated series.
  • 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.
  • Swiss-Army Superpower: Being able to turn into any animal in existence, there's near endless abilities that he can gain.
  • Talking Animal: Unlike the original series, Beast Boy retains the ability to speak while transformed into an animal.
  • Teens Are Short: Granted he is the youngest Titan.
  • Those Two Guys: With him and Cyborg, they both get along the most.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He has his moments.
    • One of the biggest examples is in "Brain Food", where he casts a spell that makes his friends stupid, while they're working to stop an asteroid from wiping them out.
    Beast Boy: I feel so dumb for wanting to be smart.
    • Also in "Head Fruit", when Robin tells him to "use his head", he takes the instruction literally and physically uses his head for everything, which ends with his face being battered and swollen.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: Some episodes put emphasis on his lack of intelligence and make him even dumber than usual, such as "Brain Food" and "Head Fruit".
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Tofu, much like in the original series. He also has a fondness for pie and burritos.
  • Trouser Space: Keeps notebooks, pens, and tons of other random things in his pants.
  • Use Your Head: Beast Boy takes this statement too literally in "Head Fruit", using it for typing, making eggs on a frying pan .etc. Which ends with inflicting severe pain on his part.
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice is a tad more high-pitched in this series, to coincide with his even more immature nature.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Has quite few of these responses from others to coincide with his increased Jerkass nature, especially in "You're Fired!"
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Green hair in his case.

    Cyborg 
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ttg_propd_charcyborg_4296.png
Voiced by: Khary Payton

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Can swivel his head like an owl. Justified because he's mostly mechanical.
  • Adaptational Badass: Now has far more gadgets and abilities than he did in the original series. Most notably, now he can fly via a jetpack.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: Like the other Titans, this version of Cyborg is much less mature and heroic and here he's just a selfish and immature jerkass. He's also not above sinking to lows to achieve a selfish goal.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Cyborg has gone from his mature, grief-stricken personality to a Jerkass Manchild who values having fun above the safety and feelings of others.
  • Arm Cannon: In laser, minigun, or sonic flavors.
  • Balloon Belly: He gets them at various times in the series. Particularly in "Smile Bones" where it becomes so big that it develops a mind of its own.
  • Berserk Button:
    • Seeing an old guy getting free pizza after he and Beast Boy slaved for days to get it and failing.
    • Just like Beast Boy, he hates the word "responsibility" to the point that he'd ruin the future just to avoid hearing it.
  • Big Eater: Especially in "Smiles Bones" where he and Beast Boy just vacuum food up, Kirby-style.
  • Black Dude Dies First:
    • He is the first Titan to die, which he does so in "Laundry Day" after sniffing Beast Boy's dirty clothes and passing out (though he is revived afterwards when Beast Boy sucks his ghost back using a vacuum).
    • Also in "Ghost Boy" all of the Titans end up randomly dying at the end, guess who's first to go?
  • Borrowed Catchphrase: In "No Power", Cyborg yells Robin's "Titans, Go!"
  • Butt-Monkey: When it's not Robin or Beast Boy getting the hate, he's next in line. He also dies in a lot of episodes.
  • Catch-Phrase: As always, "Booyah!"
  • Cheaters Never Prosper: In "Hey Pizza!", try as hard as he can, he can never make the pizza guy arrive later.
  • Chick Magnet: He's dating Jinx, and he seduced Wonder Woman during the talent show.
  • Comical Overreacting: His Freak Outs truly are a sight to behold.
  • Cybernetics Eat Your Soul: Explored in "Tower Power", where 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 due to Beast Boy spilling 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. This is even illustrated when Starfire brings out a visual to demonstrate no superheroes were allowed to date supervillains, with Batman and Catwoman as the example.
  • Depending on the Writer: It is never consistent which parts of Cyborg are mechanical and which parts are still organic. The only safe assumption at this moment is his head is still human, and his arms are mechanical, any other part of him is anyone's guess.
  • Ditzy Genius: He still retains his technological genius, but possesses much less common sense than his previous incarnation.
  • Do-Anything Robot: And we mean anything. He seems to have a gadget built into him for every day of the week.
  • Finishing Each Other's Sentences: He and Beast Boy engage in this during "Pie Bros", "Burger vs. Burrito", and "Yearbook Madness".
  • Flight: He usually walks on his feet, but he's capable of flight via his Jetpack. He even becomes a Hover Mecha in "Legs" after putting on Raven's cloak and adopts her personality and habits.
  • Edible Ammunition: In "Pie Bros", his Arm Cannon fires pies, while in "Meatball Party" it has meatballs.
  • Emotional Bruiser: The physically strongest member of the Titans, and the most emotional and melodramatic.
  • The Engineer: He's the go to guy for any of the Titans' technological needs.
  • Flight: Through use of a jetpack.
  • Freak Out!: Is prone to these throughout the series, though they're not as extreme as Robin. Not helped by his No Indoor Voice and Comical Overreacting.
  • Gatling Good: Left arm transforms into one. Counter to the Sonic Cannon in his right one from the first series.
  • Genius Bruiser: One of the physically strongest Titans, but he's also the Titans' technological expert.
  • Genius Ditz: Despite his many idiotic tendencies in this series, he is still quite knowledgeable with technology.
  • Heartbreak and Ice Cream: He is seen furiously eating some during his Five Stages of Grief in "Lazy Sunday".
  • Heroic Second Wind: THE NIGHT...BEGINS...TO SHIIIIIIIIIINE!!!!!!!!!
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Beast Boy.
  • Hidden Depths: He's quite knowledgeable about 1980s pop culture, though he seems to think Emmanuel Lewis was an adult at the time Webster was produced.
  • Human Mom, Non-Human Dad: In this version rather than getting prosthetic limbs, he's actually half robot, and his father is a toaster. Although this appears to be a one-time joke and was later retconned, as later episodes like "Tower Power", "Super Robin", and "Oil Drums" reveal he was once fully human when he was younger.
  • Husky Russkie: Not him, but the voice he does for his belly in "Smile Bones" is a Slav. As is his belly itself, once his and Beast Boy's gluttony cause their bellies to gain minds of their own.
  • Hover Mecha: When his mind is overtaken by Raven's cloak, he retracts his legs and becomes one of these.
  • In-Series Nickname: He is often referred to as "Cy" by Beast Boy and Robin.
  • Jerkass: Can act like one fairly often, especially when he causes trouble with Beast Boy.
    • In "Pie Bros", he makes fun of Beast Boy for getting a job to raise money to get a present for him. Cyborg didn't know about the second part, though.
    • In "Double Trouble", he pulls a Batman Gambit on Raven twice and tricks her into duplicating both him and Beast Boy.
    • In "Hey Pizza!", he and Beast Boy are willing to kill the pizza guy in order to make him arrive late so they wouldn't have to pay for the pizza. He even grins evilly when he pushes the Big Red Button and disintegrates the pizza place.
    • In "Staring at the Future", he rodeo rides on Beast Boy as a bull. They crash through all of the Titans' rooms and trample on them.
    • In "Smile Bones", he and Beast Boy eat up all of the food, leaving the other Titans malnourished and starving.
    • In "Rocks and Water", he acts as a Moment Killer, ruining every one of Robin's attempts to get closer to Starfire.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Though in episodes like "Man Person", he does show that he cares about the other Titans.
  • Jerkass Ball: Like the above, this is usually in tandem with Beast Boy. For 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 changed it. The resultant future was overrun by Manhunters, but the two don't have to have to deal with any responsibility.
  • 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 is much more broader in this series than it was in the original. This is lampshaded in "Colors of Raven".
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Failing to upload 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?
  • Losing Your Head: Unlike the original series, this Cyborg is able to freely detach his head. He frequently does this, and is left with a small body made from wires and circuits.
  • Manchild: Considering he's supposed to be 18, but is among one if the most immature Titans.
  • Moment Killer: He is this to the extreme in "Rocks and Water", continuously getting in the way of Robin's attempts to get closer to Starfire (going so far as to get in the way of the kiss so that Robin kisses him instead).
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Never before seen gadgets have a habit of popping out of him as required by the circumstances and Rule of Funny.
  • No Indoor Voice: Cyborg has a habit of yelling all the time:
    • This is lampshaded in "Colors of Raven", when Red Raven complains about his screaming all the time.
    • "Operation Tinman" plays with this, when Robin realizes Cyborg is missing after noticing how quiet it is.
  • No Water Proofing In The Future: In "Tower Power", Beast Boy accidentally spitting his soda over Cyborg is enough to cause him to malfunction.
  • Oh, Crap!: In "Hey Pizza!", he and Beast Boy have one when they realize they have blown up the pizza store, potentially killing the Pizza Guy, and will go to jail. Fortunately, the pizza guy shows up at their door a few moments later.
  • Ping-Pong Naïveté: There are times when he is a technological genius, while other times he's just as dumb as Beast Boy.
  • Please Put Some Clothes On: After Raven turns him back into a human in "Real Boy Adventures", his robot parts fall off and he stands in front of the other Titans stark naked where all of them cringe in horror. Raven then summons a towel and covers him up.
  • Sassy Black Woman: In "Grandma Voice," he turns into one of these.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Has a few of these over the course of the series:
    • In "Matched", he takes off after seeing Robin wearing nothing but a pair of speedos/swimming trunks.
    • In "Staring at the Future", he and Beast Boy dash away after hearing the terrifying word "responsibility".
    • In "Be Mine", he bails after realizing he just told Beast Boy the truth about what happened to Terra.
  • Shoulder Cannon: Which can fire a missile barrage.
  • Stalker With a Crush: To Jinx, although he prefers to call it "tracking".
  • Swiss Army Appendage: His hand is able to turn into all sorts of gadgets.
  • Telescoping Robot: He keeps so many gadgets and weapons stashed in him, it make one wonder how much of him is still human.
    • Several episodes like "Laundry Day" and "Tower Power", indicate only his head remains organic. His head can be freely detached from his body, leaving only a small body made of wires and circuits.
      • Although there are episodes which indicate other parts of him are still organic. Such as "Ghostboy" the casing on his leg is stripped off revealing a normal leg wearing a sock underneath, while in "Double Trouble" an obese Cyborg had a beer belly jutting out from underneath his mechanical parts.
  • Those Two Guys: With him and Beast Boy, they tend to get along with each other the most.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: He and Robin have the highest death counts out of all the Titans.
  • Tinman Typist: Done while uploaded into Titans Tower by hitting the keys with the corner of his monitor.
  • Took a Level in Dumbass: In Season 1 he would often be a guide to the less intelligent Beast Boy and point out his common sense errors. In later seasons he's just as stupid as Beast Boy is.
  • Transforming Mecha: Cyborg is capable of transforming into whatever he wants such as a rocket or a train, usually for comedic effect.
  • Trigger Happy: When in doubt, Cyborg just shoots at it with lasers.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Pie, along with Beast Boy. He also has a particular love for burgers, and meatballs (which he uses as Edible Ammunition).
  • Wolverine Claws: He has literal wolverine claws housed in his arm that he very occasionally will unsheathe.
  • What Have I Become?: Thoroughly averted, unusually. Outside of some angsting over his inability to enjoy the Titans' new hot tub at the beginning of "Real Boy Adventures", Cyborg is completely fine with being a, well, cyborg, despite there being so little left of his body compared to his previous incarnations that he's not much better off than Raiden. Robin is unimpressed with this in "Let's Get Serious":
    Robin: I mean, look at Cyborg! He's half-man, and half-machine!
    Cyborg: I know! Pretty cool, right!?
    Robin: No, it's not "pretty cool"! In fact, it should be tearing you apart!

Voiced by: Tara Strong

  • A Day in the Limelight: In "La Larva de Amor" and "Missing", which are entirely Silkie-oriented episodes.
  • Accidental Hero: In "La Larva de Amor" possibly. It's left ambiguous whether he meant to defeat Carlos or not.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Silkie's cuteness got amped up 10-fold in this series.
  • Ascended Extra: In the original series, Silkie was a background character who occasionally had roles larger than cameos. In this series, he is featured more prominently and has several episodes that are focused on him.
  • Badass Adorable: He has moments of this.
  • Big Eater: He ate Pain Bot who is twice his size.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: He's a grub the size of a cat.
  • Bigger on the Inside: The insides of Silkie seem to posses Hammer Space qualities. Beast Boy can even reach in for supplies.
  • 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. Though once he gets the cat food he wants, he vomits out everything else.
  • Eyes Always Shut: He actually has Green Eyes, as shown in "Starliar", "Hey Pizza!", "Dreams", and "Brain Food". Other times they've been blank.
  • 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 de Amor", but since he can't speak, no one will ever know.
  • Hidden Depths: While Silkie typically displays Ignorance Is Bliss, several episodes indicate he is far more intelligent than he first appears. In "Sum of Their Parts", the Silkie Emoticlones have no problem taking down the rampant Robin Emoticlones.
  • Interspecies Romance: Between him and a human woman in "La Larva de 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.
    • In "Sum of Their Parts", the Silkie Emoticlones all defeat the Robin Emoticlones, with one of the Robins being eaten.
  • Out of Focus: Silkie was featured regularly for most of the series. He has appeared less so in Seasons 3 and 4.
  • Power Floats: When Silkie eats the Legendary Sandwich and becomes immortal, he begins to glow and float in the air ... before regurgitating the sandwich up.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: Chalk it up to the art style in this show, but Silkie is impossibly adorable here.
  • Smarter Than You Look: Some episodes hint Silkie is more intelligent than the average grub.
  • Suddenly Voiced: After getting mutated by Killer Moth at the end of "Missing". Lampshaded In-Universe.
  • Team Pet: For the Titans.
  • 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.
  • Ugly Cute: In-universe at least, as Raven and Cyborg are sometimes disgusted by his insectal appearance and tendency to puke.
