These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Teen Titans Go!
The comic (based on the original '03 series)
Nightmare Fuel - 55, the final issue, "When There's Trouble..." The story itself delves into all the Titans' greatest fears, and some panels are just plain freaky!
Take That, Audience! - In "Stupid Cupid", Raven remarks on how all the "shipping" is stupid, after Larry attempts to pair up all the Titans with each other. Depending on the fan, it was either taken as a cathartic jab at shippers or condescending and insulting to fans.
Alternative Character Interpretation: Is Silkie really as oblivious as he seems? Or was his perfect stealth take-down of what seems to be an entire criminal cartel the result of a keen strategic mind motivated by the love of a woman?
Robin sings the old Teen Titans theme in "Tower Power".
In "Artful Dodgers", there's Raven and Starfire's dodgeball duet to the tune of the Titans theme song.
Badass Decay: Comes with the below. Most if not all the characters are (for comic book fans anyway) criminally incompetent.
Robin gets hit with this the hardest. In the original series, he was able to formulate a strategy to take down all of his teammates. Here? He was shown to be the weakest member of the team since he has no powers.
The humor itself which is way different from what was seen in The New Teen Titans shorts. Especially as a few of the plots turn toward Black Comedy. As well as lack of interaction with the rest of TT heroes and villains (they get cameos at best).
Fans of Beware the Batman fell into this, accusing this show of "stealing" Beware's spotlight by virtue of being hyped up more and being given alternate timeslots as opposed to Beware's Saturday morning only slot and nearly bare-bones ad campaignnote For a long while, after both shows premiered, the only adverts for Beware the Batman consisted of the "Professor Pyg's nursery rhyme"-like one that usually noted a new episode, while Teen Titans Go had plenty of ads and was given at least two marathon airings despite still being relatively new at the time. Look for an increase in this sentiment now that Beware's been pulled for more repeats of this.
"Tower Power" has Cyborg becoming power mad after being uploaded to the Tower's systems and turning the other Titans into appliances to prevent them from turning Cyborg back to his old self. Fans that read the GO! comics, particularly the final issue, probably don't find this to be all that funny given that Cyborg's worst fear is the thought of him losing his humanity.
For some, the fact the Titans Took a Level in Jerkass and have become decidedly less noble and heroic, especially in "Artful Dodgers" and "Staring at the Future" (the former for having the team blatantly cheat in a sporting event, the latter for having Cyborg and Beast Boy take their jerkinessUp to Eleven and acting like giant Man Childrenwhen they ruin their friends' and the world's future because they didn't like responsibility and found their friends' pleasant, responsible lives to be boring).
The little background gag of an urn labeled "Robin II" with a crowbar next to it for some.note Jason Todd, the second Robin was killed in the comics in an explosion after being beaten nearly to death by the Joker with a crowbar. Because of this, a number of his fans feel the background gag was in poor taste.
Ear Worm: It's become quickly apparent that the Titans (mostly Beast Boy, Cyborg, and Robin) love to sing. Almost all of their songs will naturally become this:
Cyborg and Beast Boy's pie song.
"Cuz I'm a genius! Yes I'm a genius! I am a genie in the bottle, I'm a genie-us!"
The theme song: "T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S! TEEN TI-TANS! LET'S GO!"
Fanon: A rather large portion of the fan base has decided that this series is just a bunch of weird dreams from original series Beast Boy. Those who have this as their head canon have admitted that they have more fun watching the show than other people probably do.
In "Pie Bros" it's implied than the Titans ate pies made out of people.
Raven's room has a bunch of cages in one corner. There's a human skeleton's arm sticking out of one of them. How did that get there?
Starfire has a human skeleton reaching for a glass of water under her bed in "La Larva Amor".
In "Ghost Boy", Beast Boy tries pranking Cyborg by regurgitating a bunch of owl pellets into his cereal. Given what owl pellets are made out of, it would seem that Beast Boy's renounced his veganism.
Considering he wanted to eat the legendary BLT in "Legendary Sandwich" and has been seen drinking regular milk in "La Larva Amor" it's possible He's more of an on/off vegan plus remember it's an Alternate Continuity, making it less Fridge Horror/Nightmare Fuel and more Squick when you realize where Owl Pellets come from.....
The ending of "Tower Power", bad enough Cyborg turned into a HAL clone but then he gases all the Titans and turns them into appliances...exactly how did he do that?
Hilarious in Hindsight: Several years ago, a fan wrote a Teen Titans fanfic about the gang watching Enchanted and comparing themselves to the characters from the film. Starfire, of course, is compared to ditzy Princess Classic Giselle. Fast forward to the episode "Laundry Day", in which Starfire makes a beautiful dress out of scratch, something Giselle did in the movie.
Ho Yay: In "Double Trouble," the numerous duplicates of Beast Boy and Cyborg take over Titans Tower, and one group of them are seen playing a game of Spin the Bottle. Take from that what you will.
In "You're Fired", Cyborg is shown to be the only one who's actually upset about Beast Boy being fired, is shown crying over a picture of him at the "Hero Audition" and it's even implied that he might have had something to do with Beast Boy trying to sneak back in.
Like You Would Really Do It: In "Pie Bros" it looks like Robin, Starfire and Raven have been baked into pies and Cyborg and Beast Boy are eating them. It turns out they escaped and only their hair and clothes were in the pies. Then again, "Ghost Boy" had the entire cast killed and turned into ghosts, so death is obviously not out of the question (when comedically appropriate).
Cyborg and Beast Boy as babies. Cyborg had daddy issues and Beast Boy was apparently abandoned at a zoo.
Baby Robin. Those mean circus animals kept stealing his stuff.
Nightmare Fuel: The fact that not only does Robin have a voice in his head, but that the voice is the sane one when Robin's trying to figure out what to do about Starfire dating Speedy. Not to mention the amount of abuse he puts Speedy through in the episode.
The mouth worms Starfire tries to feed the others in "Parasite". Trying to eat something that's still alive is disturbing enough, but when Robin eventually bites down on one, it responds by screaming at him and then opening its eyes to reveal that they are extra mouths, which also scream at him. Even Raven is unnerved by them.
According to "Artful Dodgers", the reason Raven can't play dodge ball anymore? The last time she did, she went nuts after being tagged in the head and ate the other team.
Older Than They Think: Terra's hatred for Beast Boy had been around since the original comics. Of course, since this show is mainly adapted from the 2003 TV series, it isn't hard to see why some fans are taken aback by the change.
Ship-to-Ship Combat: Most of TTG's older fandom comes from fans of the 2003 cartoon; as a result, as of both "Terra-ized" and "Matched," the fandom has revived the Ship to Ship Combat between BB/Raven and BB/Terra shippers.
"Staring at the Future" probably didn't help with Robin hooking up (and having a baby) with Batgirl
The pies made out of people. The Titans even ate some.
If you know what "owl pellets" were, Beast Boy puking it into Cyborg's cereal as a prank is this in spades.
Muscley Robin. Especially when he flexes his buttcheeks.
The entirety of the "Space Parasite" episode. "Parry" is just...EWWW!
It's bad enough that it was on the floor beforehand, but Cyborg eating a moldy 30 year old pizza in "Staring at the Future" was pretty gross.
Strawman Has a Point: Done on both sides of an arguments about powers in "Super Robin". Robin correctly points that their powers make the job of crime fighting much easier as shown when they fought the H.I.V.E. However three of them point out that their powers come at a high price.
Tainted by the Preview: Fans complained about it just from seeing the previews, not that the show itself helped at all.
Tastes Like Diabetes: Raven's happy facet is so sickeningly sweet, she'll make you go into diabetic shock. When she gets loose in "Colors of Raven", she goes around making everything a Sugar Bowl.
The Woobie: Timidity!Raven in "Colors of Raven". She's in a constant state of helpless fear, has frequent vomiting fits out of sheer nervousness, and her last act before Robin and Starfire sneakily send her back into the prism is to silently weep to herself in the city park.
They Changed It, Now It Sucks: As one can tell from the previous tropes, this show has gotten quite a bit of this reaction - before the show actually aired, even. It didn't help that Cartoon Network had been seen as screwing the previous shows over.
There's also the fact that thisGo cartoon isn't the same as the The New Teen Titans shorts that came on during Cartoon Network's Saturday morning DC Nation block. Said shorts were based more on the original show than Go is, had a different style of comedy, and overall didn't make the Titans into caricatures of themselves. The changes in style that Go has is so significant that fans feel incensed that they didn't get the expanded version of The New Teen Titans shorts they were expecting to get. Even worse, it's started affecting Beware the Batman as that show's supposedly been pulled for more episodes of this. Seriously?
They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: "Sidekick" has trouble brewing in Gotham, instead of it being a Batman villain its the Hive again, who appear often enough in Jump City as it is.
