Recap / Teen Titans S 5 E 9 Revved Up

"Chill out, cool cat. The Ding Dong Daddy ain't cruisin' for a bruisin'. The prize is yours. All you gotta do is race me for it."
Ding Dong Daddy

Ding Dong Daddy, a hip hot-rodder, steals Robin's most prized possession, and forces him into a road race in order to get it back.

Tropes:

  • Bizarro Episode - In addition to being a traditional wacky episode, this one goes as far as to feature a never-before-seen villainnote  as the primary antagonist and does not fit into continuity (the Titans were scattered all over the world at the time).
  • Breather Episode
  • De-Power: It would have been easy for Raven and Starfire to win the race by flying. So Ding Dong Daddy disables their flight with some kind of energy ray.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: To get on the villain bus, Starfire and Raven subdue a couple minor villains and take their costumes.
  • Enemy Mine: Robin saves Red X from falling on to the street during a high speed chase. In return, X takes down the enemy racers.
  • Exact Words:
    Cyborg: Beast Boy, take the wheel!
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Many of the Titans' recurring antagonists join the race.
  • Homage: To Wacky Races.
  • I Owe You My Life: Robin saves Red X from a fall. Red X pays back the debt by taking out the other racers.
    Red X: [to Starfire and Raven] Tell Robin we're even... for now.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Starfire blurts out to Gizmo that Ding Dong Daddy will give away Robin's prized possession to whoever wins the race, which leads to a small army of villains taking part.
  • One-Man Army: Once Enemy Mine sets in, Red X takes down all the other racers by himself, in less than a minute.
  • The Unreveal: It's never revealed what Robin's "most prized possession" is. Epileptic Trees abound.
  • Where Does He Get All Those Wonderful Toys?: Ding Dong Daddy has a mobile pit stop at the ready in case his car gets damaged.
  • Wild Card:
    Gizmo: Whose side are you on, barf-brain?!
    Red X: Mine!
