Some fanfics are good. Some fanfics are bad. And some fanfics are written so well they are fanfic in name (and copyright law) only. Titan Legends falls into that category. The plot... is basically taking every stupid, Sueish 'omg my character joins the titans!' fanfic and doing it right. The characters can drift into Sueishness, but are easily redeemed by good writing and some truly fascinating plot twists. For most this is a truly enjoyable series. And slightly addictive...It can be found here.The series also includes most of the tropes found in Teen Titans, so this page will mostly consist of ones unique to the original characters or original story lines.There's also a WMG page and a CMOA page.
Anachronic Order : Due to three or more different authors, the troubles that all of them have with updating, and some stories being written before the story they're supposed to be sequels to, the timeline goes all over the place.
Deus ex Machina: Several, including the literal Personal Deus Ex Machinas, created by a lazy god-being known as Pangloss.
Dramatic Ellipsis: Used mostly by Noel, but also whenever there happens to be a dramatic moment.
Homage/Parody/Plagiarism: Legend Maker sometimes likes to borrow snippets or segments of other material. The difference is if asked, he will admit that fact up front: as he puts it, he is "passing the words on" to a potentially new audience, and never takes credit for said words, including sometimes in the story itself (see Crisis Point below). Hence, his borrowing doesn't exactly fit precisely into any of the three categories: it's more of a mix of the three. But as the saying goes "The good borrow from the best, the great steal outright."
Plus considering it's a fanfiction world, he's technically stealing 80 percent of his material anyway.
Lotus-Eater Machine: Due to a patchwork completion of various stories up and down the fanon's timeline (see Anachronic Order above), mixed with delays of various sorts, it has been suggested that many of the stories might just be happening in Noel's head.
Noodle Incident: A few references to adventures not shown on screen. This troper's personal favorite is the imagery brought up by this line.
Robin: Look, those two caught in the mall were just very dedicated cosplayers, okay?
Powers That Be: Several mythical pantheons, the authors, and God. We're still not sure who controls what, or the various levels of power between them. They don't seem to acknowledge each others' existance, though the authors seem more like reality-warpers than actual gods.
Running Gag: Noel and getting thrown through windows. Robert's terrible luck getting a girlfriend. Mortimer the sludge monster showing up and fighting the Titans every time they get a new member (implied, since it's only been shown to happen twice).
Three as of Flashing Lights and Sounds, though Nigel's battle with Mortimer was never shown. Also, the entire team preventing themselves from cursing in front of Starfire and her failure at doing it correctly when she does.
Starfire: Oh, trucking skit...
Shout-Out: Quite a lot, including some you'd never expect, like Grant Morrison's Doom Patrol run.
This troper's favorite, for sheer strangeness, was when a story actually referenced the infamous exploitation film I Spit On Your Grave.
Theme Naming: Savior, Gauntlet, and Metatron all have the same middle name: Alexander.
It also seems that ALL villains and heroes that introduce themselves MUST have a codename... this includes any possible pairs or groups of heroes/villains when they team up, EVERY time they team up.
There Are No Therapists: Subverted, in that there are obviously plenty of therapists, the main characters just have too many secrets or other issues to visit them.
Now completely subverted with the appearances by Dr. Sidlakus as a psychiatrist/counselor for a few Titans when they seek him out.
True Companions: Very few of the Titans have actual family, and are glad to have their teammates. Of course, since they're teenagers/young adults this doesn't keep some of them from fighting like cats and dogs, but the feeling's there.
Specific storywise examples include:
Black And White
Le Beau Geste: Done twice by Noel, first by spending hours on a Valentine's Day card for Raven (which gets shot down), then by impaling himself with a sword in an effort to peform a spell to save Raven from Trigon.
Catch a Falling Star: Subverted when Noel is thrown through Not So Soft Glass (and is promptly shredded), and despite Starfire and Raven's attempts to catch him, lands on the T-Car... several stories down.
This is the only instance where the Soft Glass trope is subverted. The rest of the fanfics play it straight. Considering it ultimately became a running gag that Noel gets constantly THROWN THROUGH WINDOWS, it's probably best.
Some have argued that he's Not Quite Dead since there was no body left behind, and that He's Just Hiding, especially with his appearances in noncanon stories dated after his death and he's done this stunt before.
Erotic Dream: Noel has one... which promptly turns into a nightmare when Demon Raven tries to kill him.
Katanas Are Just Better: The Lord of the Night, who is never indicated to be Asian or has any affinity for Asian arts, culture, or philosophy, fights with a katana.
Last-Second Word Swap: While several male Titans are hanging out, they decide to talk about sex. In order to avoid offending any females that pass by, they switch their words at the exact second they come into hearing range. After a while they realize it's too risky and switch topics.
Though when she finally confesses, The Lord of the Night rejects her and kills her.
You Are Too Late: The Titans rush to the top of the T-Tower to stop The Lord of the Night from finishing his evil plot, they banter back and forth, the Titans finally declare they'll stop him... and he reveals he had finished 12 minutes prior to their appearance.
Bedlam House: Somewhat averted with Edge City Asylum. There are some genuinely good doctors and orderlies there, concerned with helping the patients. There's also the unfortunately arrogant Doctor Phale and two rather sadistic orderlies. The latter get thrown out after trying to kill Noel.
Heroic BSOD: After Slade's plot in an arc, Noel suffers a complete mental breakdown and ends up in a lunatic asylum.
Gambit Roulette: Mad Mod's INCREDIBLY complicated plan in the Youth of the Nation arc. It's lampshaded within the plot saying that smart villains hate needless complications and that a brain tumor is destroying his rationality and caused him to think up a plan that's so incredibly convoluted.
Sins of Our Fathers: The similarly named arc in Wings of the Eagles centers around Slade's plot to force Savior to kill his his father (thus destroying his own life as a hero) as Revenge for Savior's role in the time muckery of the Time and Time Again arc, which resulted in the death of his son, Grant Wilson.
Teens Are Monsters: Noel comes across this in the first chapter when he finds 3 very inebriated teenagers trying to light a hobo on fire out of boredom.
The Epic Of Gauntlet
Arch-Enemy: Peregrine and Gauntlet have this in about as classic a sense as you can get.
Crazy Enough to Work: When the Titans need fire to combat Mortimer the sludge creature in The Epic of Gauntlet, Robert solves the problem by having the Titans create a fire tornado... with fire extinguisher fluid.
Savior: I can't believe that worked. How in the hell did THAT work!?
Gauntlet: Simple, old bean. The carbon dioxide from the extinguisher, when mixed with the high octane fuel that most men who are 'small' put in their over-compensatory vehicles, done burns good.
Savior: No! It doesn't! It's a basic fact of chemistry! Carbon Dioxide is the end result of burning! It doesn't burn! That's why it's in fire extinguishers.
Perky Goth: Sophie, again. While her clothes are not typically the black spiked wrist bands or the dark hair, she wears funeral suits as casual clothes and has a certain thing for bats. She could also be considered a Raven Hair, Ivory Skin or Eerie Pale-Skinned Brunette even though her hair is a medium brown her skin makes it seem darker.
Power Parasite: While Sophie is unaware of how her powers work, she does know it has something to do with blood...
Fembot: Viridian, though given her appearance some might consider her a Robot Girl.
Billy Recording: These tests will show just how much you are willing to sacrifice to make it out of here alive. So Titans. Would you sacrifice your blood? A limb? How about a teammate? You'll have to answer for your choices, Titans. Be prepared.
It's immediately presented that the Titans had tests to pass... they never thought that the "choices" they'd have to make about teammates could be unrelated.
Also, Noel's jacket in Boogeymen IV.
Chekhov's Gun: Used quite a few times in these stories. (Spoilers ahead.)
The Orb of Archetypal.
Gizmo's Intrinsic Field Remover in Boogeymen II.
The crowbar Flay severed in Boogeymen II.
The empty elevator in Boogeymen IV.
Cyborg's stolen favorite taser.
Chekhov's Gunman: In Boogeymen IV, it's Marissa Mori, who had been written off as dead even though we never actually saw her die.
Foreshadowing: The opening scene of Boogeymen IV: Dolorum Ipsum Quia.
Also, the first letters of the chapters in Boogeymen IV spell out "Day of the Dead".
Again in Boogeymen IV, Robin notes that "it's always different on the other end" just like he does in every Boogeymen story. Since we've already had a story with the Titans going through this, there had to be something different... which turned out to be that it wasn't at all like the past occurrences, and instead was The Lord of the Night orchestrating it to seem like it was.
In Boogeymen IV, Robin keeps bringing up the Japanese association of death with the number 4.
Also in Booegymen IV, Beast Boy notes that Kramer isn't against lying in his traps, and even that he does it as a part of a grand scheme, not for petty purposes or just to make things difficult.
Four Is Death: Outright mentioned in Boogeymen IV, and things keep happening in fours throughout the story. Perhaps unsurprisingly, everyone ends up dead. They get better.
Heroic BSOD: Subverted and lampshaded by Gauntlet in Boogeymen IV.
High-Pressure Blood: Played straight and lampshaded due to the atmosphere, especially in Boogeymen IV: Dolorum Ipsum Quia.
Human Shield: Starfire inverts this by using her own body to block Noel's gun so Robin can get away.
The Infiltration: Noel goes undercover into the HIVE in Boogeymen II: Teenage Wasteland... and gets sucked into the madness by accident.
Kill 'em All: Subverted at the last second in Boogeymen II: Teenage Wasteland when the "heroes" (AKA the villains) manage to reverse the whole thing just before the Samara/Sadako merged monster kills them all.
Subverted in Boogeymen IV: Dolorum Ipsum Quia when it turns out Raven's alive and she manages to get the Spectre to reverse all the death.
In all of the previous stories, whenever the atmosphere is mentioned, it is simply acknowledged as such, not the "darkness".
A related one is Zia seeing her "final motivation" for surviving her trap in the darkness of the tar.
John's self-awareness is similar to Krueger's in Boogeymen III, since they both know they had been brought to life... but Krueger specifically took the Orb of Archetypal to prevent a reversal, while Kramer did no such thing. If he was aware of what was going on, he'd be aware that the deaths would be reversed, so the traps would be pointless... unless it wasn't the atmosphere.
All of the Boogeymen stories' chapters spell out a phrase with the first letters, and each of them had 13 chapters, the last being posted on Halloween (Oct. 31). However, Boogeymen IV was explictly said to have only 12 chapters... which spelled out "Day of the Dead" (Nov. 1).
It turns out that there was a surprise ending and chapter 12's ending was a ruse all along.
If the Titan's powers were blocked by the Orb of Archtypal (like they assumed), then Noel shouldn't have had any painful effects when trying to access the Shimmer simply because it had blocked his powers. His nerve system should be normal, so its response should be just like anyone else's: without pain. The fact that it wasn't pointed to the reality that the Orb of Archetypal was not in play.
Gauntlet kept bringing up the fact that it was All Saints Day (AKA The Day of the Dead), and not Halloween, even though all of the previous stories occurred on the night before Halloween (so midnight was Halloween and the night was Mischief Night).
The fact that Noel's trap didn't have a tape, which would always be left in plain view... implying that the tape was somewhere else so it could easily be found... like Noel's jacket, which he decided to search out of anyone's sight at the very beginning of the story.
Also, when Noel gives the jacket to Starfire, he says, "It still has armor. Hopefully enough, if someone decides to shoot through the door or...something." Why would he assume someone would shoot through the door when there's been only bladed weapons so far... unless he's seen (or even has) one?
This particular subtle example from chapter 4:
"Noel was no Macgyver, but he and the Titans had received some (and in a few of their cases more then some) training about using their surroundings to their advantage. Surely Jigsaw knew that. ... Well, maybe he hadn't. ... ...because if Jigsaw had considered what he was doing...then just what was Savior doing? Was EVERYTHING he had picked to do worked out beforehand? Before Savior could work himself into a full-on state of nervous paralysis though, he came to the fourth door, and carefully began to open it."
Loads and Loads of Characters: Specifically Boogeymen III, which features or will feature just about every horror movie character there was, including one scene where the protagonists are attacked by no less then 100 "slashers" from nearly as many movies. You know the drill.
Also, it's subverted when he collapses from all the damage his body's suffered before he get gets near John.
Word Salad Title: Boogeymen II is named for one of the horror movie titles of a character brought to life in it.
Came Back Wrong: This BM differs in that it's the Titans fighting off the Black Lanterns, which are Type 3.
Doppelgänger: Gauntlet is off fighting Lanterns out for revenge on his father separately from the Titans with the help of a new masked friend/foe, Cipactli. It isn't until the end of the story that he manages to get her real name: Zia Mori
To be clear, at the very same time those two are fighting, Marissa Mori is present the entire time with the Lord. This brings up a lot of Epileptic Trees.
Emotion Bomb: The Lord's plot hinges on one of these to overload the Lanterns' rings, which could make them vulnerable to attack.
Enemy Mine: The Titans have to team up with quite a few enemies of theirs: The Lord of the Night, Marissa Mori, Elijah Versaw (now Intertia, not Cauterize),Empyrean, and Myth.
Heroic BSOD: Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Savior all do one of these, with the latter being the worst, when they realize that the ones that came back from the dead include their parents.
Although the villain counterpart is the Villainous Breakdown, Elijah and Marissa both have reactions similar to the heroes rather than going insane.
Horror Hunger: While it was first touched on in Silent Night, we get a straightforward confirmation that The Lord drains and feeds off darkness in people, including their emotions.
You'd think this wasn't all that bad, since the person would feel relieved afterwards, but he not only pushed the Titans to utterly slaughter the Lanterns that took on their loved ones' forms after they've been hit by the Emotion Bomb just to get an extra boost, but he even flaunts doing it to his new and willing subordinate (Marissa) right in front of Raven.
I Have You Now, My Pretty: Extremely disturbing when done by the resurrected Mitch Mori. Alhough it's likely a ploy by the ring to get as much of a rise out of Marissa as possible before killing her and turning her into one, let's make go over just how freaking disgusting it is: it's the rotted corpse of a father who raped his daughter after her mother's dead and drove her off the deep end into massacring students at her school before offing herself, and it's chasing her down while discussing how much he's going to enjoy doing it again.
More Than Mind Control: Heavily implied to have been involved with why Marissa works for the Lord willingly, even so far as for her to say she knows what he's done already. It's unclear if she really knows everything or if he didn't outright Mind Rape her, particularly when Raven tells Dr. Sidlakus that many pieces of her mental self were missing, particularly those related to Zia.
Named Weapons: The Lord named not only the weapon he gave to Nightwalker, previously the Lightscourge, now the Nightscourge, but also named a shapechanging sword Tezcatlipoca.
An Ass-Kicking Christmas: Adeste Fidelis has elements of such, while Silent Night uses it in both its first and third acts. At least one of the worlds shown in It's A Wonderful Life (which is being told on Christmas) also features heavy action.
Yet Another Christmas Carol: Subverted when Gauntlet leads an attempt to do this to Savior in Adeste Fidelis, but is stopped immediately when the sheet flies off of Terra (who's playing the ghost of Christmas Past). Considering Noel's childhood, maybe it's better that they were stopped.
Cloudcuckoolander: Lampshaded by Gauntlet when Met steals the title from him in Silent Night.
Covered in Gunge: Speedy continuously tries to get back at Gauntlet for his pranks in Adeste Fidelis, but gets Savior by accident.
Drugs Are Bad: Mas Y Menos say it outright. Though considering they're battling an out of control villain who's fueled by nanomachine-infested cocaine, it's apt.
Strangely, according to Bumblebee this is the only English phrase they know.
Flashback Cut: Used whenever one of Cyborgs Specially Modified Cannons is brought up.
Sexy Santa Dress: Used by several Titan females in Adeste Fidelis (in private of course).
Jinx wore one in God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen too.
Let There Be Snow: Gauntlet and others use the Weather Wizard's wand to cause snow to fall for Christmas in God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.
Done again in Adeste Fidelis.
In Silent Night, the Weather Wizard wand zaps a bunch of snow into the Evidence Room when Terra picks it up.
Mall Santa: Lampshaded when Starfire, who is determined to find the real Santa in all of the Christmas specials, keeps checking all of the Mall Santas in Jump City to see if one's real.
Played straight when Killjoy is dressed as a Santa collecting donations at a street corner.
Which in a sense is also a subversion considering Killjoy is a sociopathic hitman.
Or maybe not since he only does that when he shoots a thief who had stolen the pot of donations.
Mistaken for Cheating: Noel gets roped into taking risque pictures of several Titans for their significant others (since he volunteered to do all the busywork) in Adeste Fidelis. Unfortunately, Raven catches him. Twice.
This happens to Noel again in Silent Night after rumors spread concerning an offhand compliment he gives to Batgirl concerning her skills in martial arts. The rumor spreads quickly and leads to a lot of dumping on Noel by angered allies.
Alone with the Psycho: Detective Chesbro goes to Elijah's house to check his suspicions of him while the Titans find a series of connections tying Elijah to all of the victims and involved parties.
Anti-Villain: Though Cauterize clearly means well, his actions and methods show that despite the suffering that's been inflicted on him, he's learned the wrong lessons from it. Perhaps most tragic is the fact though he clearly loathed his abusive stepfather, said abuse has made him into a twisted mirror image of his abusive stepfather.
Asshole Victim: Mayor Tercero is a corrupt, greedy bastard... and he's the one who called the Titans for help.
Bittersweet Ending: Light City is saved, but at what cost? Then it turns out Elijah isn't dead after all.
Catch a Falling Star: Cauterize runs up a skyscraper into the air, dragging Mayor Tercero, lets him go, and runs back down to watch.
Result: Subverted as the Mayor goes SPLAT.
Da Chief: Garry Turnquist becomes this after his former chief was dealt with by Cauterize.
Distracted by the Sexy: During the story, Terra and Beast Boy are awkwardly avoiding each other/trying to get together. Terra does a strut through the main room of the hotel they're staying at while Beast Boy is playing a videogame against Scalpel.
Scalpel: You appear to be losing Gar.
Beast Boy: Yeah.
Scalpel: In fact you just lost, I crossed the finish line.
Beast Boy: Good for you.
Scalpel: I just broke your high score you worked on for three months to achieve.
Beast Boy: Great.
Scalpel: You know, I ate someone today.
Beast Boy: Sounds like fun.
Scalpel: (flicks Beast Boy with his metal fingers)
Trick Dialogue: Terra overhears Beast Boy screaming at someone that he hates him/her, and assumes it's her (since she's been awkwardly avoiding him while trying to get back together with him)... then realizes he was yelling at himself in the mirror for not just telling Terra he loves her.
What makes this funny is that she actually bursts in and yells at him for kissing Kory (which she did to learn English) after he mentioned it in his discussion with himself.
Turn in Your Badge: Turnquist does this to Chesbro (to protect him from Pierce) after Pierce blackmails Turnquist to ensure none of his "business" is uncovered while he's under the Titan's protection.
Depending on the Writer: While it started out as a straight re-imagining, later chapters and the story's section on the website comment on DC's editorial decisions since the original miniseries was published.
Rousing Speech: When Robin asks Noel to pull one of his motivational speeches out of his ass, Noel gives a speech comparing the Titans' situation of defending Metropolis from an oncoming army of supervillain escapees to the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BCE.
A speech which was shamelessly swiped, and even stated so:
Robin: Very nice.
Savior: Donâ€™t thank me, thank Frank Miller. I mostly stole it from him.
Evil Versus Evil: The Lord of the Night versus Superboy-Prime and Alexander Luthor.
Power Levels: Played straight as minor anti-villain Peregrine has a device later in the story that gives a 'rudimentary combat numerical reading' of various characters AND Lampshaded/Homaged as it leads directly into an 'Over 9000' joke which several of the background characters openly laugh at.
Shout-Out: A handful throughout the story, but one really sticks out as awesome.
Lord of the Night: I hear them...I hear them...and so... To you, world of mine. From one magnificent bastard's tongue to another. HERE. COME. THE DRUMS!
Back from the Dead: Danny, he returns to the living world TWICE! He even had a small talk with DC's version of the Grim Reaper.
Second Law of Metafictional Thermodynamics: After the first giant fight between Danny/The Titans and Sizzle, pretty much all of Amityville packs up its bags and leaves town It is suggested this might be a subconscious effect of the deeper powers Danny is suggested to be linked to in the story.. End result? The second, final fight pretty much leaves the town a smoking crater. It gets better.
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The Zap Pack. The villain built them to act like heroes as closely as possible, while maintaining a master control device to ensure they followed his orders. Guess what happened when push came to shove.
Also the F.U.M.B.L.E helicopter AI in Danny's Inferno: after suffering more damage than it can handle, the AI shorts out and starts babbling random nonsense and immensely obscure pop-culture references.
A God Am I: The aptly-named Lord of the Night, as well as Sizzle/Flammadea in Dannyâ€™s Inferno, and also Danny when he briefly becomes The Primmortal...but also subverted with...
Almighty Janitor: Pangloss is, in terms of power, a literal GOD... But he's so lazy that'd he rather live on a couch and watch soap operas as opposed to saving/ruling the world. And he does. Hey, would YOU argue with him?
Author Avatar: Done literally during the No Fourth Wall moments. Legend Maker, the creator of the series, is shown as a pink elf. No, really.
Slade's plot for revenge against Noel in Wings of the Eagles.
Cauterize's schemes in Cutting Edge.
Evil Twin: Legend Maker, Bobcat, and Jedi-And have all created Evil Twins for their respective original characters (but only Noel's has been revealed: Christmas, in one of Time and Time Again's alternate universes.)
Exiled to the Couch: In the fanfic Hand In Hand, Noel and Rob get their hands magically glued together. After Robert is incapacitated by Zorkaberries, Noel and Raven decide to be a little daring... and much to their horror, find that Rob has woken up and is taking notes. Noel and Rob are promptly exiled from Raven's room.
Note: Noel is still naked when she does this.
Fatal Flaw: One for every character usually. Some notable ones below.
Robin: Pride. It becomes a major factor in Flashing Lights and Sounds.
Savior: The shimmer's weakness to blades or anything similarly sharp.
Scalpel: His race has evolved to be terrified of swimming, and they are especially susceptible to damage from guns.
Also the White Hole.
The Lord of the Night's vampire-esque weakness to sunlight.
Lord of the Night: Indicated he suffered horrific torture (it was so bad, he repressed it so deep that, while he could find out just what happened, he refuses to: he doesn't want to know).
The Lord's abuse was so bad that he actually manages to weaponize it as a thought bomb in his fight against Superman in Crisis Point.
Sizzle: Did suffer horrific torture, particularly of the sexual variety.
Eyesore: See above.
Jackal: Was apparently abandoned by his parents and had a terrible life afterward: not many details were provided.
Generation Xerox: Subverted. Here Comes Tomorrow and some parts of Time and Time Again and Crisis Point do show the next generation, however some are completely unrelated to the Titans and those who are have their own personalities and issues.
Genki Girl: Zippy, somewhat justified due to her lightning powers.
Good Scars, Evil Scars: The Lord of the Night's horribly burned and shredded face is a clear indication that he is not good. On the other hand, Nigel and Noel have easily-concealed scars on their chests from being run through with swords in the name of justice.
Various other characters have their moments of this, including Noel challenging a demon lord for a chance to date Raven, or Starfire purposefully getting herself shot in Boogeymen IV: Ipsum Dolorum Quia.
Meaningful Titles: The Lord of the Night. Who claims to be a god. Who learns to create life in one of the AU's in Time and Time Again. The blasphemy is hard to ignore.
Morality Chain: Played with a bit. Crystal Collins is arguably one as she kept Noel from being corrupted by his father, but it is her death that ultimately causes him to become a hero.
Motive Rant: Done rather ruthlessly (and tragically) by Eyesore first to one of her teachers then again in a later chapter to a mob outside the school after she's forced several dozen students and administrators to kill themselves in Wings of the Eagles. The end of her rant is just below.
Eyesore: YOU DID NOTHING! YOU ALL KNEW AND YOU DID NOTHING! You just stood by and watched! None of you wanting to get involved! None of you wanting the trouble that would result when the rotten wound was laid bare! You just stood by and watched! And your pity was bad enough, BUT YOU DIDN'T STOP THERE! Eventually, you stopped feeling sorry and you...you dared...YOU LOOKED AT ME LIKE I WAS SOME KIND OF ABOMINATION! LIKE WHAT WAS BEING INFLICTED ON ME WAS SOMEHOW A CHOICE OF MINE, WORTHY OF SCORN, WORTHY OF DISGUST! IT WAS BAD ENOUGH WHEN YOU LOOKED UPON ME AS A VICTIM, BUT THEN YOU STARTED LOOKING AT ME LIKE I WAS SOME MUTATION YOU WANTED OUT OF YOUR PRETTY LITTLE WORLDS! SUCH AN UGLY THING HAPPENING TO ME, AND YOU LOOK AT ME LIKE I'M THE UGLY ONE!''
Cauterize aka Elijah Versaw also gives a very lengthy one when he's uncovered at the end of Cutting Edge.
Not Himself: Done by Noel several times, most notably in Black and White when he is suspected of strangling women due to his initial rejection by Raven.
Also by Robin in the 9:45 a.m. arc in Flashing Lights and Sounds.
Person of Mass Destruction: Several. Main OC villain The Lord is the one mostly used: his second appearance, as mentioned above, has him casting an ancient magical spell that turns him into a 'god of shadows' whose very loosely-defined powers let him raze half of Jump City to the ground and, in a fight in the Sahara Desert, briefly summon a black hole that burns a hundred mile crater of glass in the landscape. And then with Crisis Point, he's able to go toe to toe with Physical God villain Superboy-Prime and win, and then, albeit with a Deus Ex Machina or two, kill his way across half of DC's 'lesser-knowns' and battle Superman and several other equally powered characters to a standstill. There's also Danny's Inferno's Sizzle/Flammadea, who uses her own magic spell to absorb the souls of every woman in a hundred mile radius and turn herself into a literal fire goddess: she succeeded in doing the Lord one better and COMPLETELY razing a city, not to mention was stated to potentially have the power to 'blow most of the Eastern Seaboard off the map.'
Raven as well, sometimes. The holiday story Twilight's Last Gleaning has her going toe to toe with a ancient god of destruction. End result? After said god seemingly smacks her around with ease, Raven throws open the throttle and kicks it's ass.
Also subverted in Boogeymen III: House of 1000 Cliches.
Handyman: THEN WHERE THE HELL DID YOU GET THAT !$#$#$! HUMAN SKIN?
White Hole: From the body I would be continuing to do unpleasant by most terms things if that guy hadn't fallen over and started shooting at me... wait, why was THAT curse censored? Asshole. Fuck. Shit. Cocksucker. Okay really, why did that happen?
Actually used to get him momentarily away from the team, since Wings of the Eagles is focused on the other Titans.
Noel gets called on his treatment of Sam and Danny in Danny's Inferno.
And AGAIN with Noel in Boogeymen IV. Noel's that kind of person.
Who called who out?
White Hair, Black Heart: Played with with Noel, who actually has pure white hair, in that he is annoyingly cunning, but also one of the heroes of the series. Playing straight with his father, Maxwell, who has silver hair.
Alexander Luthor's plans in Crisis Point, though 1) It borders, if not crosses into Gambit Roulette, and 2) It was actually conceived of by DC Comics itself. More benefiting the entry might be The Lord utilizing said plans to launch a plan of his own and try and wrest victory away from Luthor and for himself.
The Lord's plan in Silent Night, a complicated interlocking series of events and deeds which were essentially done so the Lord could gather intel for FUTURE plans. Considering how effectively he modified it to counter for all the Titans' unexpected guests, it could also count as Xanatos Speed Chess.
