This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Teen Titans Go!
At some point Beast Boy will turn into a turtle and shout "Booyakasha"
  • As a shout out to his role as Mikey from TMNT 2012
    • They did it with Tara and ponies, so why not.
    • Better yet, he says "cowabunga", but the others say it's "too eighties", so he tries "booyakasha".
      • Heck, why not have him come full circle and have him shout "Titans, mobilize!" And then turn into a monkey. (Super Robot Monkey Team Hyper Force Go!)

The events of the original series still happened in this universe, but in a Broad Strokes way and with most of the drama removed.
  • Alternately, this is still a part of the original series—
    • Teen Titans: Year One: The series is happening in the off-hours of their first years together.''
    • Slice of Life at the Bizarro The series is happening in their off-hours in general, much like the more off-beat episodes of the original series.
    • Teen Titans 2021: It's set after the end of the original series, and with the decreased threat from the world's villains, the Titans have lost their morale and become lazy slackers. And all the stuff that happened that would contradict this (like Starfire and Robin hooking up, or Trigon's original defeat) got forgotten after someone attacked them with nerve gasnote .
  • It has to be the same continuity. The merchandise's description for Silkie is exactly what happened in Can I Keep Him.

The Titans assumed Mother Mae-Eye reformed after their previous encounter with her.
Hence why they were okay with going to her restaurant.
  • Or maybe the "Pie Bros" short was set before the "Mother Mae-Eye" episode? After the found out what was in the pies, the Titans had Mother Mae-Eye's restuarant shut down by the, um, health inspector. And then at some point later Mae-Eye escapred from jail and decided to get back at them with the little enchanted pie prank.
  • Another explanation is that she is a witch; make of that what you will.
  • Actually, TTG! is not canon so this is basically jossed.

Cyborg's father was Balrog.
Though, Cyborg can't remember him that well due to Robin screwing up his weekly backup in "Driver's Ed", assuming that came before "Dog Hand".

Trigon will appear at some point.
And Raven will have daddy issues, as fanservice to fans of the show's predecessor.
  • Already confirmed by the summery for an upcoming episode
  • On a related note...

Arella will appear at some point.
It turns out she and Trigon are happily married, but she's still human.

Batman will show up
And then Robin will be having issues.
  • Well one episode confirmed Robin accidentally wrecking the Batmobile so at most we may get some references here and there.
  • So far the show seems to be putting a lot of effort into leaving at least one Batman reference in every episode. Bat-O's, Robin getting in a 'fender bender' with the Batmobile, and even Trigon's joke about Robin 'carrying' Batman in all the crime-fighting previously.
  • Unlike the first series, they also outright say 'Batman' or show images of him and his stuff, instead of making vague references to him. So it's not unreasonable that he could show up at some point.
  • Made a cameo with Commissioner Gordon in 'La Larva Amor'.
    • And a creepier one in "Books."

Trigon used a mind wipe on Robin, Starfire, Beast Boy, and Cyborg after their last encounter with him.
So he could get them on his side when he tried to get Raven to become evil. It was all part of his plan!

These Titans are actually the Action figures of a fan of the original series
Time Passes, and this young man lost the "Young" part. The fan got married and had a kid, but he still kept his Teen Titans Action Figures. Now that his son is four years old, he asked Daddy who these figures were supposed to represent. The Fan then created little stories featuring the action figures (Toning things down obviously, because a four-year-old still can't grasp concepts like Betrayal, honor, willpower or obsession) and tells them to his son at bedtime. This is why there are some discrepancies, The fan had to re-create the Titans world as best he could, while still making it appropriate for his son. Also, his memory faded a bit, so some details (Like Beast Boy's Veganism, What Silkie Sounded like, or even what the T-car looked like) were forgotten completely.

This series takes place in an alternate universe accidentally created by Larry
  • And now you are all imagining a TTG stylized Larry.

Bruce Wayne cut Robin from his fortune
  • This would explain why Robin is so cheap, most likely due to crashing the Batmobile.
    • Except that Robin acts quite cheap even before Driver's Ed. In Pie Bros he gives Cyborg a half-drunk soda as a birthday present, and when Cyborg complains Robin tries to call him out on whining because it's not expensive enough. He then tells Beast Boy 'we cheapos need to stick together!'
      • Well Ed appears in a police van so this could take place after Driver's Ed.

Ideas on future episodes, who will appear, and how.
  • One scene in one episode episode will involve Batman's Bat Credit Card.
  • Red X will reappear, be revealed to be Jason Todd, and get into and argument with Robin about who was "dad's favorite."
  • An Adventure Time parody show with Starfire being a huge fan of the Princess Bubblegum-type character from said parody show.
  • The Aqualad from the Original show (Garth) will be outclassed by the one from Young Justice (Kaludr). It will include a gag where Kaludr tries to talk Cyborg out of doing something really stupid only to fail, and feel like he was just Talking to Himself.
    • Interesting, Considering Kaludr has apparently hung up his cape and is now a lucratively successful DJ
      • Maybe it's just a day job for pocket change.
  • The Titans get called away for an emergency, and Silkie is left alone to fight an intruder in the tower!
  • Raven loses her "favorite" cloak and tears the Tower apart looking for it. After she finds it and goes to put it away, it turns out her entire closet is full of the exact same cloak.
  • A fangirl of Robin will show up to follow the Titans around and the episode will be about them trying to get rid of her.
  • Starfire decides to cook. When she serves her dish to the other Titans, they pretend to like it, but actually think it's disgusting.
  • Silkie eats something his shouldn't have (Like say, the Keys to the T-car). Instead of waiting for nature to take it's course, The gang hops in the T-ship, shrinks it to microscopic size, and extract the item.
  • Beast Boy wins a call-in contest to a sold-out concert. He's only got two tickets, but the other four Titans want to attend this concert!
  • Beast Boy gets sick. Initially he's completely bedridden and totally miserable, but after a few days he feels better. However, he doesn't want the special treatment to stop, so he has to keep faking sick. Naturally, the episode ends with another Titan getting sick and everyone focuses their attention to them.
  • One of the Boy Titans attempts to Grow a Beard. Starfire sprouts one too. Why? Because Aliens.
  • Raven is enjoying her new book so much, she doesn't notice it's due back to the library today! She had ten minutes to race it back or face the wrath of a LATE BOOK FEE!
  • For some Reason, The Titans Managed to burn down their own tower. Each titan claims a different source (Raven's candles, a spark from Cyborg's workshop, Starfire's Hiccups, Beast Boy's filthy room, or Robin's new crime-fighting tool) and tell their story with a unique art style for each of them.
  • Galfore is going to come visit his bumgorf. To make him feel more welcome, Starfire teaches the titans about Tameranian customs and ettique, and they get pretty bizarre. Turns out rudeness in tameranian culture is punishable by death. hopefully the titans have been practicing!
  • Starfire gives Raven a makeover!
  • Beast Boy meets up with Aqualad (Garth) and they go completely insane over trying to get the other Titans to join their "save this rare-and-exotic-and-does-not-actually-exsist-in-real-life sea creature" charity cause. Then what they thought was the last known specimen of this creature has babies.
  • Some High School Goths want to see Raven, but she's not accepting visitors... ever.
  • Someone out-techs Cyborg. He spends the rest of the episode building ridiculous additions to the tower, his car, and himself trying to out-do this guy.
  • Robin is gone for a day because Batman is bringing him to the Justice League Watchtower for "Bring Your Sidekick To Work" day, and Titans Tower falls into chaos without him.
  • Robin tries to make Starfire Jealous by going out with Batgirl/Blackfire/Kitten. Not only does it not work, but Star prepares a Tamaranian-style wedding for the "happy couple". Robin tells Batgirl/Blackfire/Kitten that he was only using her to make Star jealous, Batgirl/Blackfire/Kitten doesn't take this well and Star beats up Robin for "breaking her blood-pumper"
  • Rather than the Titans getting grossed out at Starfire's cooking, Starfire will find a relatively common earth food she absolutely hates! (For the sake of this post, let's say the food in question is marshmallows) But Jump city is hosting it's annual Marshmallow festival, the titans keep trying to get Starfire to eat even the tiniest bite, but she keeps escaping.
  • After watching a Kung fu movie marathon, Beast Boy wants to learn martial arts. Robin is against this because that's his schtick.
  • Batman is coming for an inspection and Robin tries to get his teammates into shape.
  • Starfire's brother Wildfire comes for a visit and Robin mistakes him for his sister (Thinking that Tamaraneans can change their gender) very awkward moments ensue.
  • Two of the Titans are having an argument about who has it easier, Raven uses her powers to pull a "Freaky Friday" Flip on them.
  • Control Freak shows up, develops a HUGE crush on Starfire and he won't leave her alone.
  • Robin and Starfire finally go on a "date" the other three titans keep popping up, wanting to make sure everything's okay.
  • Raven reads a book that's outrageously bad, in multiple senses of the word.
  • Beast Boy gets trapped in his own room. The other Titans must scale the highs of Mount Dirtylaundry and the vast plains of Weekoldtofu to try and save him.
  • Starfire enters Silkie in a dog show and Cyborg enters Beast Boy when they find out that first place gets a lifetime supply of pizza.
  • Jump city is hosting a film festival. Robin decides to make a short Kaiju film where he saves cardboard jump city from Silkie with cardboard triangles taped to his back. However, during the filming, the other Titans keep wandering "on to the set" (He took up the entire living room with his film equipment) and mess with his diorama. After much frustration, Robin decides to ditch the fancy script and films his friends having fun wrecking cardboard Jump city. Throw in a few references to "Attack on Titan" and yes, Everyone dresses up for the 'Premiere'.
  • Cyborg invents a time machine and brings Sarasim to modern times, future shock jokes ensue.
  • Starfire goes back to Tamaran for a while and Robin goes crazy without her (plus the voice from "The Date" returns)
  • Robin, Raven, Starfire and Cyborg are going to spend the night at the museum to attend some Gala. Beast Boy doesn't wanna go. As soon as those four leave, he calls up all the other teenage heroes and throws a house party! When the Hive Five show up, things get out of control, can he get this all wrapped up before the other Titans get home?
  • Raven's mother, Arella, arrives at the tower. She and Trigon were having an argument, and she needs some time to cool down. Initially, the Titans like having a mother around (She does their laundry, cooks for them, and even kisses them goodnight!) But when Arella starts preventing the titans from going on missions, it's clear she HAS to leave!
  • Silkie has babies! A lot of babies. The titans have to get rid of them somehow, but the animal shelter won't take mutant larva and no one they know wants a pet. Killer Moth arrives to "Adopt" the babies.
  • Slade tries to take over Titans Tower, but every time he tries to, something comical gets in his way (the Titans are on vacation/the road to the Titans Tower is blocked/the Titans are busy fighting another villain)
    • Also at some point, he will sing.
  • The power goes out. Everyone finds something to do... except Beast Boy. He annoys the other titans and just when he finds something to do, the power comes back on.
  • There will be at least one situation where the Titans will be wearing civilian clothes.
  • Raven and Jinx start hanging out.
  • Kid Flash shows up, and makes friends with all the villains and convinces them to stop their evil ways. The main titans wonder if the is necessarily a good thing, but mostly, they are bored from lack of super-crime.
  • After Robin and Starfire have a big fight, Nightstar travels from the future to try and reconcile them, or else she'll cease to exist.
  • Monsieur Mallah is captured by the Titans and Beast Boy goes undercover by taking his place.
  • Zombies attack Titans tower! Raven attempts to recite a spell to destroy the zombies, but she is knocked unconscious. With their only magic-user incapacitated, the Titans have to deal with the zombies to old-fashioned way! Unfortunately, they are all bitten and turned by the end, but Raven sure does like all the quiet time she now has.
    • Might even throw in a reference to Ashley Johnson (Terra)'s work with "the Last of Us" where Terra will show up all gung ho to fight the zombies... who promptly eat her brains. Which is actually a large mushroom in her skull cavity. They still eat it though.
  • Someone or Something will force the Titans to fall in love with each other. It starts off with the "Canon" pairings of Rob Star and BB Rae, but it gets very complicated very quickly. Soon the most absurd crack shippings you can think of are suddenly real, and It's up to Cyborg to set things right!
  • Robin and Star finally go on a date, but Robin, trying to make it a "perfect" date, screws it up, but at the end of the ep, Star tells him that she still had a great time, then Robin does a minor error and Star goes ballistic and tells him that he ruined the date and she'll not date him again for a very long time, if ever (Well what did you expect in this show? A happy ending?)
  • Robin and Star finally become a couple and they become Sickeningly Sweethearts, which annoys the other Titans. So they try to break them up and they succeed (because Status Quo Is God)

This show is in the same universe as the Super Best Friends Forever

While the old cartoon finally shipped Robin and Starfire, the new one will ship Robin and Raven.
They both like Pretty Pretty Pegasus and their clothes which Raven cursed to attack them were dancing rather provocatively together.
  • And cue an explosion of Ship-to-Ship Combat.
  • There is also the Gorilla episode, Raven pretty much took Robin's orders with a smile, and not a nervous smile at that.
    • This happens once more at the end of "Super Robin".
  • It's probably too soon to say this entry is definitively Jossed, but this CN blog post (and their Comic Con panel) suggests otherwise. Spoilers ahead.

Dating Starfire has changed Robin.
He wasn't so jittery in the original series. Maybe their relationship made him more nervous.
  • Then why was he so nervous when asking Starfire out if they already had dated? And why would Starfire accept it if they broke up or knew of what happened to him?
    • They didn't break up. He just never asked her out on an official date before.

Raven knows a spell that brings dead people back to life without any negative side effects.
  • She used it off-screen after the events of Ghost Boy.
    • She also used it for Mother May Eye's victims.

Mad Mod created this show.
  • Watch the style of a Mad Mod episode, then watch this.

While Jinx is a good guy now, she still has to pay for her past crimes.
Hence why she was in jail.
  • Jossed in "Super Robin", when she's seen robbing a bank with the Hive gang.

Jinx is a mole
Which would explain everything, The team however, is completely oblivious to this, hence why they don't act like this is the case. Furthermore, Batman probably put her up to it, explaining why he doesn't care about them doing what they were doing in "Girls Night Out".

Lex Luthor somehow bought the entire planet
The only visual nod to this is his face on the money (He wanted to put his face on everything, but he knew that would cause a whole slew of "dictator" allegations). He's eliminated "mundane" crime, and the world is actually pretty peaceful, even if he had to put a mild hallucinogenic into the world's water supply. He Cleaned up Gotham and got Batman some much needed psychiatric help. He's helping superman build a "neo Krypton" billions of lightyears away, and he's doing other crazy amounts of good (for profit of course, and an easy way to hush "Conspiracy theorists" who may discover what he's up to). However there are still supervillains, giant monsters, and world hunger, so heroes are still needed from time to time.

The series is based on fanfics the writers stumbled upon over the years
More specifically, the Crack Fic kind. I say this because I could swear I've seen certain situations in those before.
  • The fact that Raven has been said to have a crush on Beast Boy and her upcoming fight with Terra solidifies this

The reason that there are so many Batman references and cameos...
...is because they're all building up to an episode where Batman is one of the main characters.

"Super Robin" was really Robin's nightmare.
  • He probably wishes he could have superpowers. That episode could have been just one bad dream.
  • Could even have been induced By Raven, to teach him a lesson.

Raven knows a time travel spell
She used it after the end of "Super Robin" to undo everything

When freeing the gorillas from the zoo, the Titans accidentally unleashed Gorilla Grodd onto Jump City
And Mallah, who was then reunited with his beloved brain. No need to worry about them though, they're on a nice long date.

Cyborg changed his mind after the events of "Tower Power".
  • He changed everyone back to normal when that happened.

"Tower Power" was all just Cyborg's prank
To get back at the others for breaking his physical body, Cyborg pretended to go crazy, gave them knockout gas, then plugged them into a virtual reality simulator where they thought they were now part appliance.

The final ep will be a two parter about Slade attacking Titans Tower
Or... Attempting to attack the tower. Something hinders him from actually attacking it.

After the events of "Parasite", Raven used her powers to activate a portal to Earth to get her and the others back to Earth.

Each of the Titans is now on a certain type of Medication, which has effected their behavior
  • Robin: ADHD Medication. After realizing he spent too much time brooding and not enough time actually trying to solve crimes, He forged some medical papers to claim he had ADHD. The Medication makes him less likely to brood, but it does make him quite Jittery.
  • Cyborg: Antidepressants. Cyborg no longer feels bad about being half robot, he may have visited a psychiatrist and was prescribed Antidepressants. Unlike the other Titans, his medication has not come with negative side-effects.
  • Starfire: Mood stabilizers. As Tameranians are dependent on their emotions to control their powers, Starfire uses these to prevent a "misfire". Unfortunately, she has lost her super-strength. She is more even-tempered though.
  • Raven: "The Pill". Some days Raven seemed more likely to lash out at the titans than usual, this was due to PMS. Now that she's got that under control, she's not as likely to lash out (Unless her Dad is coming to visit) and she actually smiles from time to time. Unfortunately, when she does lash out, the effects are lethal.
  • Beast Boy: Medical Marijuana. Believe it or not, Transforming into some of his larger forms is really painful for Beast Boy. Since Jump City is supposedly in California, where medical marijuana is legal, he can get the stuff to treat the pain. As a side-effect, he has gotten lazier and has a MUCH larger appetite than he used to.
The Animated Show is what Raven used as a coping mechanism in the alternate timeline
In this universe, all Heros have a marketing contract... except the Titans
  • Certain villains have a contract too. Every time someone buys something with your face on it, 75% of the money goes to a fund to help rebuild the city from the damage said hero or villain caused.
at some point the show will take a somewhat dark turn
And the Titans will have to work with the Justice League to combat Darkside...Hey we didn't get him Young Justice we may as well get him here.
  • Not with this art style they're not!

Terra from the upcoming ep "Terra-ized" is a Slade-bot in disguise.

Raven will turn Terra back into stone at the end of the ep "Terra-ized"
What would you expect from this show? A happy ending?

The humorous theme is all to cover up that sometimes this show has more darkness than the first series.
We have seen the team become part of the tower, learn morals way too late in life, even see all of them die thus far. Or it's just one of those cartoons that likes to do these things and at the end they'll act like it never occurred.

No one remember Terra because it's Beast Boy's fault.
After the events of "Things Change", he wanted Cyborg to create a memory eraser so he could forget about the pain. It worked, but due to a slight malfunction, everyone in the tower completely forgot about Terra.
  • That would require all the episodes involving Terra to be canon to TTG.

Robin's cheerful singing is because he spent the previous night with Starfire.
Look at this interpretation of his interaction with Beast Boy and Cyborg.
  • Then how come she wasn't in bed with him when he woke up?

Robin and Starfire broke up.
Star moved on, Robin on the other hand.....

Why else would they exaggerate everything and go to wild extremes over everything else. And notice that Batman is always around and not doing anything to stop it?

Terra was talking to Slade on her phone
Obvious, I know. I just wanted to be the first to say it.
  • Or maybe it was Control Freak. We haven't seen him yet.
    • We haven't seen Jimmy Olsen either. That doesn't mean she was working for him.

This Terra was really the comic book Tara Markov whom killed Good Terra and took her place.
It's not the first time Terra swapped clothes. In a future episode a good Terra II will show up. She'll spend the whole episode trying to convince the Titans she's not the evil Terra I, finally succeding when she performs a heroic sacrifice. Then at the very end Terra III shows up...

This show takes place in the same universe as Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi
The art style is almost identical, plus Puffy Ami Yumi sang the theme song anyway; so maybe in this 'verse, the singers have met the Titans and written a song about them. Or something. It's late.

Robin and Star will hook up in the final episode

Slade will appear in the series but will be Laughably Evil.
  • Like Deadpool?

Terra will return and settle a personal score with Raven.
  • More likely than less confirmed, in the upcoming ep "Be Mine" she'll return.

Slade won't appear at all in the series.
How can anyone make him humorous?
  • Make him a desperate, lonely man who constantly pines for his wife and child, who tries to get Robin to be his new "apprentice" by bribing him and trying to be an ideal father. Bonus points if he slips up at some point and replaces "apprentice" with "new son."
  • Use Black Comedy

Alternatively, Slade will be the biggest Knight of Cerebus in Cartoon Network's history.

The Series is a attempt by Various Villains to Mock The Titans to deal with the fact that they got locked up
  • It explains the Negative Continuity and why the Titans are actually less moral than the villains a good bit. This is just their way of petty revenge and a good laugh.
