* AccidentalAesop: As [[https://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/5596322.html?thread=165179810#cmt165179810 one thread]] in Scans Daily pointed, some viewed "The Return of Slade" as commentary on misguided attempts to reintroduce [[NostalgiaFilter famous products from the past]] with a darker tone in order to draw modern fans.
* AccidentalInnuendo:
** In "Artful Dodgers":
-->'''Starfire:''' Perhaps this is the year you will let Raven and I participate in the dodging of balls!
** And again when Robin puts a time limit on the other Titans' use of the bathroom in "Serious Business":
-->'''Robin:''' Remember, five minutes! '''I WILL BE WATCHING.'''
* AlasPoorScrappy: Despite Robin having a huge amount of hate, there are many who feel his punishment at times is a bit excessive and feel sorry for him, especially as the show seems to take particular glee in portraying him as a pathetic LoserProtagonist. Some fans also do not like how the other Titans seem all too willing to replace Robin as leader, whether with another leader, or one of their own numbers committing mutiny.
* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation:
** 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?
** Is Beast Boy really a stupid, selfish jerk, or is he just a boy that needs education to tap into his potential?
** What about Robin? Does he really want to be a good hero, looking for what's best in the city? Or a murderous psychopath who only beats villains for fame glory? Also, is he over-controlling of his team because he's tired of being Batman's sidekick and he's afraid that someone on his team will take over (because they have powers)?
** Raven. Do "Dreams" and "Campfire Stories" indicate she really wants to kill her friends? Or is she a tortured soul SurroundedByIdiots? Trigon implied that Raven actually used to be evil, but she later [[HeelFaceTurn grew out of it]].
** Starfire. Why does [[NiceGuy she]] participate in [[AdaptationalVillainy mean-spirited activities]] that her friends do? Is it because she doesn't know any better? Or she's tired of her friends picking on her because she's nice?
** Cyborg. Who was meant to be only guardian of Tower, and the only young adult member of group. Consider how he acts more like a [[ManChild teenager]] when he's around his friend Beast Boy, while also considering his origins about him being unwanted as he's a cyborg who's vengeful towards his father who was an engineer specialized in mechanics. All these factors leave him as a borderline [[PsychopathicManchild psychopathic Man-teenager]] who uses entertainment as an excuse to explain his somewhat childish or teen personality and block his traumatic memories out his database.
** The Titans in general. Are they really heroes? Or are they just really power-hungry jerks who use the cover of being heroes as an excuse to get away with bullying villains who aren't even doing anything?
* {{Anvilicious}}: "Vegetables" has moral about eating a balanced diet. Eating nothing but meat or vegetables is unhealthy.
* AudienceAlienatingPremise:
** The show is a spin-off of the original that is meant to cater to a different audience. While it has garnered a large fanbase and consistently pulls in high ratings, it has also alienated most fans of the original show who were expecting a more true revival of the series rather than a purely BlackComedy sitcom as well as fans who feel this show is a ReplacementScrappy for ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice''. It doesn't help that some of the episodes seemingly [[TakeThatAudience take shots]] at fans of both the original series and those of ''Young Justice''.
** Most fans who were keen to the idea of a superhero comedy, especially with DC characters, likewise were turned off by the mean-spirited nature of the show, the unlikeability of the characters in general, and the constant airings of the series shutting out other shows such as ''Adventure Time'' and ''Regular Show''. Pointing out that there ''have'' been DC shows that have done comedy right like ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheBraveAndTheBold'' and even fellow DC Nations mini-series such as ''WesternAnimation/SuperBestFriendsForever''. Even the shorts that inspired this, ''New Teen Titans'', was received more favorably as it at least kept the tone of the '03 series.
** That said, one does have to make note of the fact the show has been ''a lot'' more successful with more staying power than the aforementioned superhero comedies, which only ran for a short time before unceremonious cancellations. Then again those shows likewise didn't have as aggressive an advertising campaign as this one. It's obvious network favoritism was at play here, that or CN just really wanted a poster boy to lead their current batch of comedies.
** There are viewers who are unhappy at the fact that the show gets reaired so often to the detriment of other shows like ''Adventure Time''. The latest victim, for example, was ''WesternAnimation/TransformersRobotsInDisguise2015'' which was given a terrible time slot (5.30am Central Time).[[note]]Ironically this was the same reason ''WesternAnimation/JohnnyTest'', the previous "favored" cartoon before ''[=TTG=]'', got so much hate when it was running.[[/note]] This has been taken by the show's hatedom as a deliberate and spiteful display of favoritism.
* AuthorsSavingThrow:
** "Mouth Hole" appears to be a response to complaints about both Robin's BadassDecay and the [[spoiler:former]] ShipSinking of Robin/Starfire.
** "Real Boy Adventures" appears to be a response to complaints about Cyborg's BadassDecay, and the controversy "Tower Power" stirred up where he enjoyed his loss of humanity.
** Finally having Mammoth, See-More, and Billy Numerous speak in "The Hive Five", after [[TheQuietOne two seasons of remaining silent]].
** "Squash and Stretch" spends most of its time discussing the use of violence in cartoons and where it is considered acceptable, which may very well have been done to appease complaints about some episodes having the Titans solve their problems or deal with people they don't like by using violence (though the said complaints are rendered ridiculous by the fact that the original series, by necessity of being an action-oriented show, [[FranchiseOriginalSin still saw the Titans' problems being solved via punching at least 85% of the time]]). There is even a scene where the Titans beat up Robin and conclude that real-life violence isn't funny.
** "Boys vs. Girls" was largely criticized for having the Titans being sexist [[KarmaHoudini without consequences to their behavior]]. As a possible response to this, the ending of "Operation: Dude Rescue" shows Robin being sexist but gets the appropriate outcome for his attitude.
** Episodes like "The Return of Slade", "The Fourth Wall", and "Let's Get Serious" all take the time to acknowledge the criticisms lobbied against it by fans of the original show, but always end up placing blame back on said audience for "not getting the joke" or "taking things too seriously". "TTG v. PPG", ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' crossover, on the other hand, goes out of its way to not only acknowledge the flaws of the show, but stays firm in the fact that yes, the Titans are all incompetent [[{{Jerkass}} Jerkasses]], and that's the comedy of the show, but delivers it in a way that isn't so insulting to detractors.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic:
** In "Artful Dodgers", there's Raven and Starfire's dodgeball duet to the tune of the original series' theme song.
** Beast Boy sings "Fade Away" in "Be Mine". This is a real song by Beast Boy's voice actor, Creator/GregCipes.
** Some of the battleground music. A notable example is the music that plays when the Titans are looking for Silkie in "La Larva de Amor".
** "Pain, All I Know is Pain." It features Cyborg and Pain Bot singing about how unhappy they are about being separated.
** Cyborg, Beast Boy, and Star's "Uncle Jokes" song. Star's use of AutoTune makes the song even more memorable.
** The music that plays when Raven and Rose Wilson are fighting in "Cool School".
** The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33I5zKr6HDw Real Boy song.]] It features several DC characters, and a cameo of the late Music/MichaelJackson, singing the song.
** "[[PunctuatedForEmphasis IT! IS TIME!]] TO GET REALLY REALLY REALLY SERIOUS!!!"
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwqtKlwJjgc "The Night Begins to Shine" by B.E.R.]], first appearing in "Slumber Party". It was so awesome [[AscendedExtra they dedicated a whole episode to it the following season]].
** The music that plays during the fighting flashbacks in "Bottle Episode".
** The music during the pyramid building sequence in "History Lesson" is very cute, and sounds like something out of either ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' or a bubbly video game.
* AwesomeArt: "40% 40% 20%" was rightfully praised for its amazing artstyle, receiving the highest ratings of any episode so far. Even detractors of the show complimented the art of the episode.
* BadassDecay: 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. Though this is mostly a case of DependingOnTheWriter as some episodes show that he is just as competent as he was in the original series.
** Believe it or not, Batman. The show's dialogue does try to make him out to be the intimidating {{badass}} that everybody knows and loves, but when he's actually seen, he's reduced to being nothing more than an unconcerned bystander who chuckles like WesternAnimation/{{S|pongeBobSquarePants}}quidward.
** Cyborg. "Ghost Boy" features a normal mountain lion mauling him to death. In the original series, and indeed several ''Go!'' episodes that aren't "Ghost Boy", he could withstand and rather handily beat up some of Beast Boy's stronger animal forms (e.g. in a fairly large, carnivorous dinosaur form, the BB clone Trigon created wasn't able to even scratch Cyborg's armor).
** In the episode "In and Out", Mammoth, of all people, suffers this. Previous episodes established him as TheJuggernaut, but this episode turns him into a weeping ButtMonkey who gets beaten up by Robin.
* BaseBreakingCharacter: Pretty much all of the Titans have mixed reception due to the show's BrokenBase status, although some characters' popularity have [[TheScrappy suffered more than others]]:
** Beast Boy has been received differently across the fanbase. Some loved how his role as PluckyComicRelief has been expanded, and see him being even more hilarious and his more [[TheWorfEffect worf-y]] and [[CannotTellAJoke unfunny characterization]] aspects were toned down. While others don't take well [[AdaptationalVillainy how much of a jerk he has become]], and that he doesn't even care he got the entire team killed with his pranks in "Ghost Boy". There's also mixed view about his design; some people find it cuter, while for others it adds to their annoyance over the character. Also, some feel that his ButtMonkey status, and particularly the repeated jokes about his intelligence in episodes like "Brain Food" and "Head Fruit", is a bit excessive.
** Starfire has become this as well. While some adore her for being the {{nice|Guy}}st and most [[TheCutie innocent]] out of the Titans, there are those who despise her due to her gullibility being [[AdaptationPersonalityChange more evident in this incarnation]], which causes her to act irritating and obnoxious like the rest of the Titans (sans [[OnlySaneMan Raven]], but even she has her rare moments) at times. Also, her AmusingAlien speech of randomly adding "the" in front of words is taken UpToEleven, and can be quite annoying to some.
** Terra was already a BaseBreakingCharacter in the original series, but is an even bigger case now. Many have not taken to her [[AdaptationalVillainy villainization]] well, while others are just happy with any appearance she gets and feel sorry for how she's depicted in this series. Though this has more to do with those who are [[AdaptationDisplacement not familiar]] with ComicBook/TheJudasContract, in which Terra was originally portrayed as a BitchInSheepsClothing instead of the TragicVillain from the show.
** Batman has very divided opinions, some love his [[RecurringExtra random cameos]] and find them to be hilarious, others hate his BadassDecay and how the show has turned him into a pathetic joke character.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When Cyborg and Beast Boy went after Pink Raven. Nothing really indicated that she could [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext effectively make everything into a sugar bowl like land]].
* BileFascination: Many will say that the show is bad. Some watch it to see just ''how'' bad it is.
* BrokenBase:
** Mostly concerning fans of the original series. Some genuinely love the current series and consider it a decent and funny follow-up in its own right; others, however, feel it completely misses the point of the original and has taken too many liberties with the characterizations, animation, and overall tone.
** The episode "The Fourth Wall" is either considered an AuthorsSavingThrow in acknowledging that the show has many detractors and isn't considered as good as the original ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' animated series or is seen as yet another shallow TakeThatCritics because of the Titans ultimately showing defiance against Control Freak's threat to reboot them again with their usual {{Jerkass}} tendencies and ToiletHumor.
* ComedyGhetto: The focus on comedy has turned off plenty of fans from the original series and the comics.
* CreatorsPet: Robin is the biggest example. Being the [[SpotlightStealingSquad most heavily focused Titan]], and [[KarmaHoudini getting away with many of his morally questionable acts]]. Creator/KharyPayton even once said he felt too many episodes centered around Robin.
* CriticalBacklash: The show is widely hated by most fans, particularly those of the original series. But it does have defenders, some claiming that while the show has its share of flaws, it's not as bad as people say.
* CriticalResearchFailure:
** In "Missing", Robin states the richest person he knew was [=Scrooge McDuck=], when the richest person he knows should be [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Bruce Wayne]], his adoptive father. Granted, [[http://www.forbes.com/2008/12/18/scrooge-mcduck-money-oped-fictional1508-cx_de_1218scrooge.html Scrooge]] gives [[http://www.forbes.com/2008/12/18/bruce-wayne-money-oped-fictional1508-cx_de_1218batman.html Bruce]] a pretty good run for his money.
** The superheroes and villains from Bizarro World (or Htrae) have names that are a combination of their respected Earth counterpart and Bizarro (Batman becomes Batzarro, Wonder Woman becomes Bizarra, etc.) The episode that touches this concept, "Robin Backwards", just reverses the names (Robin becomes Nibor, Cyborg becomes Grobyc, etc.).
** "Kicking a Ball and Pretending to Be Hurt" has Robin stating that no one in the United States plays soccer. While obviously a "TakeThat" joke, it's a pretty {{shallow|Parody}} and [[StockShticks dated]] one (though AnimationLeadTime had more to do with this).
** The superheroes from ''WesternAnimation/YoungJustice'' in "Let's Get Serious" also count here. The team's designs featured are from Season 1, where there were definitely a lot more lighter moments, and [[CerebusSyndrome Season 2 is the one that got really dark]]. In addition to that, Aqualad is probably the closest they got in the episode to an accurate portrayal; even though it could be possible, Miss Martian never stretched her arms the way she did, usually using her body-shifting powers for disguises and the like. Superboy not only [[OutOfCharacterMoment winks like a pretty boy even though he's clearly the angstiest of the Season 1 team]], but also flies despite [[spoiler: being only half-Kryptonian, with not one of Lex Luthor's shields in sight.]]
** For a time, CN would use the show as the face of its anti-bullying campaign, because they're both superheroes as well as AdoredByTheNetwork. This is despite the fact that the Titans are downright misanthropic and mean spirited in their show, often using "justice" as an excuse to use excessive force or get what they want without care for the consequences.
* CriticProof: While the {{Hatedom}} is quite large, the show consistently pulls in high ratings. The main difference between the two groups is that the hatedom is made up almost entirely of the PeripheryDemographic, while most of the fanbase is made up of the intended target audience of kids 8 to 14. As a result of this, it is much easier to see the show be treated with scorn online, including on this very site.
* CrossesTheLineTwice: The second half of "Ghost Boy". Beast Boy takes his pranking too far. [[spoiler:It eventually causes everybody to die, including Beast Boy himself.]]
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: While the show is meant to be a BlackComedy SadistShow with the Titans being {{Unsympathetic Comedy Protagonist}}s, as mentioned many times above and below, one of the common complaints is that all the Titans have become completely selfish assholes towards one another, and it got to the point where [[EvenEvilHasStandards even]] the ''villains'' [[WhatTheHellHero call them out on their actions.]] With everyone being cruel towards to their teammates, it's often the [[RootingForTheEmpire real villains]] who are more often liked by some viewers.
* DesignatedHero:
** Though one could consider them [[JerkassWoobie Jerkass Woobies]], The Titans themselves in countless episodes are only called "heroes" because they fight the "real" villains, and are otherwise devoid of any heroic intentions. Instances such as "Breakfast Cheese" and "Caged Tiger" depict them as {{Sociopathic Hero}}es who beat up villains for the fun of it, and use stopping crime as just an excuse for their acts of violence. "TTG v PPG" outright confirms this, establishing the Titans as "superheroes who do not care about stopping villains." Justified as the show usually exploits this for BlackComedy. This is even lampshaded in the episode "Serious Business" when Robin says that the Titans spend 3% of their time actually fighting crime. This is especially prominent with the male Titans, who are even more selfish, childish, and jerkish than the girls.
*** Deconstructed in the episode "A Farce", where Brother Blood and the Brain take the Titans to court for their careless destruction of Jump City. They are all found guilty at the end of the episode.
** Special mention goes to Robin who displays several villain tendencies such as evil {{schem|er}}ing, violent psychotic fits, and being prone to [[EvilLaugh laughing evilly]]. He even acts as the episode's antagonist more frequently than actual villains do.
** There are also times when [[ThoseTwoGuys Beast Boy and Cyborg]] fit this description well, and are portrayed as excessively selfish, lazy, childish, and willing to sink to any low in order to get what they want.
** Aqualad is depicted as one as well. Instead of being FriendToAllLivingThings, he treats his sea creatures like slaves.
* DieForOurShip:
** Terra for Beast Boy/Raven (big time).
** As well as the alternative, Raven for Beast Boy/Terra.
** Aqualad for pretty much any ship involving Raven or Terra including: Beast Boy/Raven, Beast Boy/Terra, and Robin/Raven.
** There's also Batgirl for Robin/Starfire.
* EarWorm: 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:
** The theme song: "T-E-E-N T-I-T-A-N-S! TEEN TI-TANS! LET'S GO!"
** 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!"
** [[http://youtu.be/KHSGmJOzBlk "Tofu, tofu. Gonna eat me some tofu!"]]
** Robin's morning song.
** The girls singing a variation of the original main theme in "Artful Dodgers". [[ItMakesSenseInContext In dodgeball format.]]
** Both Beast Boy's and Cyborg's songs about burritos and burgers, respectively.
*** '''BUNS, PICKLES, LETTUCE, CHEESE, PUT THAT PATTY IN BETWEEN, IT'S BURGER! WHAT, WHAT? IT'S BURGER! WHAT WHAT?'''
** The "You Were Wrong" dance: "So wrong, so wrong, Raven was so wrong."
** "Waffles! Waffles! Waf-fles!!!"
** [[AutoTune "Don't tell them Uncle Jokes no mooooooooore!"]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmS6no7fmr8 "Once they took their last breath, I'm the soul collector, baby! I'm death!"]]
** "Step to the left, now step to the right, put your knees together and squeeze them tight..."
** "I'm makin' that money, the pyramid mummy money, I'm makin' that money, the pyramid scheme money!"
** "Night Begins to Shine", an epic '80s throwback.
** "Bring on the night!"
** [[https://youtu.be/QJftV2J1eIo "Grrl, ur so uhmayzeen..."]]
** [[https://youtu.be/oxKpTBW0BHI "Igpay igpay atinlay isway ethay opestday."]]
** [[http://youtu.be/gCkPot4by0M "It's all about my baby, yeah, it's all about Rae. If I don't gots my baby, all I do is go cray."]]
* EnsembleDarkhorse:
** Jinx is easily the most popular of the H.I.V.E. Five, due to being the only one who regularly speaks (unlike [[TheQuietOne most of her teammates]]), having the most focus, and being portrayed as [[DesignatedVillain sympathetic from time-to-time]]. Her hanging out with Starfire and Raven, as well as her relationship with Cyborg also contribute to her popularity.
** Raven's emoticlones. Especially Passion/Purple, for the BB/Raven fans, as well as Pink.
** [[MsFanservice Lady Legasus]] has been getting plenty of fan art as well.
** Birdarang is well-liked for his square-ish demeanor and goofy voice.
** Blackfire had fanart ''before'' her debut.
** [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice Kaldur]] gained a lot of fans due to calling out the Titans with his TheReasonYouSuckSpeech in "Let's Get Serious."
** Rose Wilson is one of the most popular one-off characters, due to being in one of the few serious, action-filled episodes, having great interactions with fan favorite Raven, and for being a total {{Badass}} in her appearance and fighting style. Also, the way she disses the Titans can be taken as a TakeThatScrappy moment. It helps that she's the closest thing we'll see to Slade due to the infamous [[NeverTrustATitle "The Return of Slade"]]. Her popularity lead her to getting brought back in "Operation Dude Rescue".
* EvilIsSexy:
** In "Starfire the Terrible", Starfire when she turns into a villain. ''Somewhat''.
** Jinx is this as well. Cyborg ''definitely'' thinks this.
** Blackfire. Just listen to her voice.
** Terra as well.
** Kitten.
** Rose Wilson. Her eyepatch and PeekABangs alone won her so many fans.
* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: One of the main criticisms against the series. Many of the morals the show appears to proclaim come off as unfortunate:
** The various episodes that deal with intelligence such as "Books", "Knowledge", and "Head Fruit" all come off as anti-intellectual with their implication that knowledge or stimulating your brain in any way is bad and possibly fatal for your health. "Knowledge" also carries the implication that intelligence makes you an insufferable, judgemental ass who no one wants to be friends with.
** In the episode "Sandwich Thief" Robin teaches the lesson that you should never let things go. No matter what you do, who you do it to, or how ridiculous your theories get, you should never stop and keep going because eventually you will be proven correct.
** The episodes that deal with laziness such as "Lazy Sunday", "The Best Robin", or "Leg Day" carry the moral that it's okay to be lazy and exercise is bad and that it's okay to trick your friends into doing things for you. Lampshaded by the Couch Spirit in "Lazy Sunday".
-->'''Couch Spirit:''' Just you listen to the Couch. Some folks may try to take away your laziness, but don't you let them. Never be too lazy to stand up and fight for your right... to be lazy.
** The various sports episodes like "Artful Dodgers", "Multiple Trick Pony", and "Kicking a Ball and Pretending to Be Hurt", all send the message that there's nothing wrong with cheating or being a SoreLoser, and it can solve all problems.
** The various episodes that deal with money such as "Two Bumblebees and a Wasp", "Black Friday", and "Pyramid Scheme", all send a message that there's nothing wrong with being greedy and that money should be acquired by any means. The episode "Pyramid Scheme" in particular encourages committing Ponzi Schemes, which are very illegal crimes that carry serious legal consequences.
** The infamous "Staring at the Future" has the moral that you should avoid responsibility at all costs, even if you have to ruin the lives of others in the process.
** The start of "Nature" has Beast Boy being sophisticated and civilized for once, where his behavior immediately gets frowned upon by the others and he's encouraged to be more animalistic. Nearing the end of the episode, Beast Boy gets Mother Nature to grant civilization to the animals, where she heeds his instructions of disposing of all the trees, which carries the implication of deforestation being a positive thing.
** The episode "Hot Garbage" carries the moral that it's okay to be filthy and you should never throw away garbage. Also, as mentioned below, it carries the UnfortunateImplications that it's okay to embrace hoarding, a serious psychological problem for many today.
** "Boys vs. Girls" has been riddled with criticism about sexism and gender inequality. Initially the boys, especially Robin, behave very sexistly towards the girls labeling themselves inferior in every way. However, after a contest, where the girls dominate at everything with no explanation, Cyborg and Beast Boy decide to join the girls themselves. The episode pretty much ends by stating upfront that girls are better than boys. The depiction of "cooties" being a real thing is also in poor taste.
** "Man Person" was especially scorned for encouraging kids to inflict self-injury, by presenting body parts as being expendable, and making prosthetic limbs look cool and easy to attain.
** While "Smile Bones" technically gave the "correct lesson" at the very end: "chew your food", the immensely disturbing lengths it goes to in order to reach that point, pretty much render the lesson pointless. The episode features Beast Boy and Cyborg being [[TookALevelInJerkass even bigger assholes]] than usual, and starving their friends to the point where they become malnourished. The episode then shows further signs of [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs writers engaging in substance abuse]] when Beast Boy and Cyborg's bellies swell up to tremendous proportions, before sprouting arms and legs and taking on lives of their own. The bellies then engage in cannibalism and consume vast portions of the city, and after defeating the bellies they shrink down to normal size, with all the excess mass (from the buildings the bellies ate) disappearing into nowhere. The end result is they've pretty much scared kids into not eating food at all.
** The episode "Oil Drums" states that you should watch plenty of TV to keep your brain healthy or your mind will rot and you'll turn into a zombie obsessed with outdoor activities. Also doubles as a CriticalResearchFailure as it has been theorized that too much TV affects your mind.
** The episode "Beast Man" has the moral that you should avoid being a hardworking, responsible adult or "The Man" will find you and force you to get a job.
** "Accept the Next Proposition You Hear", has the moral that it's okay to be a follower and that you should let someone else make your decisions for you.
** "BBBDAY" outright states that nobody cares about birthdays, and that everyone should simply pretend to enjoy them.
** "The True Meaning of Christmas", initially has Santa stating the true meaning of Christmas was about family and friends, before the Titans blow up his factory, forcibly making him change the message that Christmas was only about presents and nothing more.
** "Think About Your Future" shows that it's okay to be lazy and reckless no matter of how much it affects your future, and nobody should be responsible.
* FanPreferredCouple:
** Robin/Raven, mostly from those who watched the original series and liked their close relationship there. Though it's also popular among Beast Boy/Terra shippers who want Raven [[DieForOurShip out of the picture]] by pairing her with someone else.
** Starfire/Beast Boy due to [[DependingOnTheWriter usually]] acting much more like their original selves when they're around each other. "Starliar" is what solidified it for some fans due their genuinely cute interactions. "Uncle Jokes" also tends to get a lot of love from the BB/Star shippers, while "The Date" also teased this.
* FandomBerserkButton:
** The show itself is one to fans of the original series and fans of Cartoon Network's other shows. Just mentioning ''Teen Titans Go!'' or ''daring'' to say that it is in any way better than the original show or Cartoon Network's other shows will have you attacked by fans. As far as many fans of the original series are concerned, this show doesn't exist.
** The hatred has increased tenfold with ads calling the series "your new favorite show" and the Thursday night block being renamed [[AdoredByTheNetwork "New Titans Thursdays"]] (though fortunately, it was changed back to just "New Thursdays" after a couple weeks).
** Any new episode full of FamilyUnfriendlyAesop has a tendency to set the internet ablaze.
* FandomRivalry:
** ''Teen Titans Go!''[='=]s AdoredByTheNetwork status resulted in a massive rivalry between the ''Go!'' fandom and the rest of the DC Nation fans. The demise of DC Nation caused the rivalry to stretch to nearly ''[[UpToEleven every other show on CN]]'', thanks to said status. Many fans of the other shows believe that it doesn't deserve all the airtime that it gets.[[note]]Because it comes at the expense of the other shows.[[/note]] ''WesternAnimation/AdventureTime'', ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', and ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' fans in particular resent its popularity and excessive airtime, and feel their series are getting marginalized by a management run by MoralGuardians who see the more popular series as too inappropriate for their target audience.
** As of "Truth, Justice, and What?" fans of ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012'' have started clashing with fans of the show due to the content of the episode, which features the Titans beating a representation of the Turtles up.
** With the ''WesternAnimation/TotalDrama'' fandom, as Cartoon Network has started a trend of halting the airing of new episodes of ''Teen Titans Go!'' to marathon the new season of ''Total Drama''. Though to every hater of ''Teen Titans Go!'', a lengthy absence of the show is welcomed.
** With the episode "Two Parter", ''Franchise/{{Justice League|OfAmerica}}'' and ''Comicbook/SpiderMan'' fans have joined the haters, due to the insults directed at said characters.
* {{Fanon}}:
** A rather large portion of the fanbase 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.
** There's also a theory that this series is an alternate reality created by Larry, and exists in the same continuity as the original series. [[note]]It turns out this isn't too far from the truth, as this series was the result of a CosmicRetcon caused by Control Freak, as revealed in the "Fourth Wall".[[/note]]
* FoeYay: This bit between Terra and Raven.
--> '''Raven:''' What's an attractive, (sniffs Terra) decent-smelling girl like you doing with Beast Boy?
* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Many fans who have read the comics or have seen the original series knows that Cyborg's greatest fear is losing his humanity. In "Tower Power", his mind is a part of Titans Tower.
* GrowingTheBeard:
** "Colors of Raven" for some.
** "Cool School" is one of the most liked episodes, with the inclusion of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Rose Wilson]].
* HamAndCheese: All the voice actors. It's pretty obvious the cast is just having a ball reprising their old roles.
* HellIsThatNoise: The music speeding up when the Titans are about to cross the five minute mark in the bathroom in "Serious Business". Justified, as said time limit is a ''bomb''.
* HilariousInHindsight:
** Several years ago, a fan wrote a ''Teen Titans'' fanfic about the gang watching ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'' and comparing themselves to the characters from the film. Starfire, of course, is compared to ditzy PrincessClassic Giselle. Fast forward to the episode "Laundry Day", in which Starfire makes a beautiful dress out of scratch, something Giselle did in the movie.
** In "[=BBBDay=]!", the Titans avoid using the Birthday Song because they can't afford the right to use it. While the song was believed to be under copyright at the time the episode was written, by the time it aired, a judge had ruled that the copyright was never valid in the first place.
** Starfire befriending monsters rather than slaying them in "Video Game References" became hilarious with the release of ''VideoGame/{{Undertale}}'', which emphasizes ThePowerOfFriendship and eschews the typical combat-themed adventure.
** "Pyramid Scheme" aired on the same day as the ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' series finale. It's worth noting that the latter won in both ratings and critical acclaim, to the point that "Pyramid Scheme" came off as a NoHoperRepeat.
** A crossover with ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' was announced a year after Tara Strong caused a stink over being replaced as the voice of Bubbles. It could be seen as being HarsherInHindsight if you feel bad for Strong.
* HoYay:
** 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 SpinTheBottle. Take from that what you will.
** For some fans, the very fact that Beast Boy and Cyborg are close friends, is [[ShippingGoggles enough of a reason to ship them together]].
** 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.
** In "Power Moves", Robin is obsessed with merging with Cyborg and even merges against his will.
* IdiotPlot: The 5 Part Island Adventure special has the Titans stranded on an island despite the fact that all of the Titans sans Robin can fly. Made all the more egregious by the fact that the Titans are clearly shown using their powers even though Robin says their powers don't work for some reason [[WhatAnIdiot and yet none of them think to use their powers to simply fly off the island]].
* InternetBackdraft:
** Constantly with this show, where there are places on the Internet where ''Teen Titans Go!'' is universally hated, and any fan of the show wandering in or trying to defend it will get struck down and accused of having zero taste in cartoons.
** As the comments section of [[http://knowyourmeme.com/photos/1115636-the-powerpuff-girls this page]] shows, the news that the show would be doing a crossover episode with the already controversial ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' reboot in July was '''not''' warmly received by fans. At the very least, the Hatedom hoped the Powerpuff Girls would knock some sense into the Titans, or at least give them the brutal beatdown they so rightfully deserve. Following the airing, complaints died down, with the special being pretty well received. In that the Powerpuff Girls and Mojo Jojo were written more like their original incarnations than the reboot versions, as it focused more on their respective heroic and villainous traits.
* ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars: A common defense for the show is that it's a purely comedic show and geared towards a younger audience, thus it's not supposed to be taken seriously. Even the writers themselves have admitted that they wanted to make a "stupid show" and didn't put much effort into it. This is even invoked and used as AnAesop in the episode "Real Magic", where Robin's lame attempts at magic are constantly heckled by Raven, who is then banished to the mines by the Magic God, who says he hates hecklers. At the end, Raven learns that just because something's terrible doesn't mean you should hate it. [[BrokenAesop The Aesop obviously holds little water to the show's vocal hatedom and for many]], this reasoning only makes the show worse.
* JerkassWoobie:
** Robin may be an egotistical ControlFreak, but despite his negative actions, it's not hard to feel sorry for him (even those that hate him [[AlasPoorScrappy can feel sad for him]]). In "Dude Relax", it was revealed that the animals in his circus would often abuse him as a baby, which was the reason why he's always paranoid and uptight. His team would also [[WithFriendsLikeThese treat him like a joke sometimes]], to the point of them wanting him to be replaced with either another leader or one of their own numbers committing mutiny. It could be justified due to his obnoxious behavior, but many felt that this kind of treatment he gets from his teammates is just plain miserable.
*** Robin's failed attempts to win [[SingleTargetSexuality Starfire's]] affection can also be heartbreaking for some. While they did manage to become [[OfficialCouple a couple]] in the original series, this incarnation clearly shows that Starfire [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXNoAdYzXzg has no romantic interest in Robin]]. She even stated in "Sandwich Thief" that she [[ShipSinking didn't love him, nor couldn't even learn to love him, and didn't tell him so as not to hurt his feelings]]. Heck, if it weren't for that lie detector, she would've purposely ''lied'' to him.
** Raven may have a cynical attitude, but that doesn't stop her from having her sympathetic moments (the last scene of "Be Mine" was her most evident so far). She's also the [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]] in a cast full of clowns.
** Even Beast Boy and Cyborg in their occasional ButtMonkey moments. For example, the former is the first to die in "Salty Codgers". The latter has gotten mauled on multiple occasions and lost his body to a virus because of Robin's [[FantasticVoyagePlot inner body wanderlust]] taking precedence over finding a cure in "Body Adventure".
** The H.I.V.E. can be this in episodes where the Titans are excessively stupid or violent. Gizmo and Mammoth are the most frequent victims. Notable examples include "Artful Dodgers" where the Titans have the H.I.V.E. sent to jail after losing a dodgeball match to them despite their blatant cheating, "Breakfast Cheese" where they are [[DisproportionateRetribution viciously attacked for the simple, petty crime of loitering]], and "In and Out" where all five Titans viciously beat up Mammoth when they infiltrate the H.I.V.E.'s new base.
*** This gets taken UpToEleven in their titular episode "The Hive Five", where not only do the Titans constantly prank call them, but the H.I.V.E.'s attempts at enjoying their day off are completely ruined by the Titans' obnoxious antics.
** Blackfire maliciously frames her sister Starfire for her own crimes and gets her thrown in jail. The "Woobie" section comes in when it occurs to Blackfire that Starfire is the only one who unconditionally loved her and makes a sincere attempt to become a good sister, only for her previous jerkass actions to bite her in the form of Starfire escaping from prison and giving her a severe beatdown.
** Even [[{{Satan}} Trigon]] is this. He's trying to be a good father, but doesn't have a way with his anger. [[ObfuscatingStupidity Though in some ways, it's an act.]]
* LesYay:
** Starfire licking Raven behind her ears, which could also count as {{Squick}}.
** Also, Starfire kisses Raven at the end of "Caramel Apples". Granted, it wasn't in a romantic way, but it still counts.
** Raven's time spent with Rose Wilson in "Cool School", edges into LesYay territory at a few points. They get more of it in "Operation Dude Rescue". Not only does Rose begrudgingly admit to missing Raven, but there's also this exchange, spoken rather seductively by both girls:
--> '''Raven:''' Alright, Rose, this is your chance to break as much stuff as you want.
--> '''Rose:''' You really know what I like. I like that.
--> '''Raven:''' I like that you like that I know what you like.
--> '''Rose:''' I like that you like that I like that you like knowing what I like.
* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: 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. [[spoiler:Then again, "Ghost Boy" had the entire cast killed and turned into ghosts, so death is obviously not out of the question for this show.]]
* MemeticLoser: Robin, full stop. The show seems to take a near sadistic glee in thoroughly portraying him as a pathetic LoserProtagonist, putting him through {{Torture Porn}}s that make the ones WesternAnimation/{{S|pongebobSquarepants}}quidward go through look tame in comparison. His own teammates even view him as one. They rarely follow his orders, treat him like absolute dirt, constantly look to get him kicked out of the team or get replaced by a new leader, and only seem to let him be the leader out of pity. Raven outright says he's the one she likes the least out of the Titans, and Starfire never returns his affections and even outright says she doesn't love him nor could she learn to love him.
* MemeticMolester:
** Robin in "Power Moves". He spends most of the episode inside Cyborg and forcing him to come up with off-the-wall [[CombinationAttack power moves]].
** Scary Teri from "Slumber Party". The way she makes Cyborg scream like a little girl, along with the fact that she stalks anyone nearby when summoned, little kids included.
** Cyborg in "Rocks and Water", where his attempts to be the third wheel to Robin and Starfire reach disturbing levels, going so far as to get in the way of their kiss (with him [[HoYay kissing Robin]]).
** The Tooth Fairy in the episode "The Dignity of Teeth". His appearance, voice, and the fact that he eats teeth are creepy enough, but his [[NoSenseOfPersonalSpace touchy-feely mannerisms]] towards Raven and the [[StalkerWithACrush lecherous way he covets her teeth]] makes him [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything come off as a sexual predator]]. Unlike the other examples, which are mostly PlayedForLaughs, it comes off as legitimately disturbing. The "ta-ta-ta-ta" can be considered pretty funny though.
-->'''Tooth Fairy:''' No need for introductions. Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta. We met while you were ''sleeping''. Yes. I wiggled my fingers under all of your pillows to extract the pearly treasures held under them. Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta. All except ''you'', Raven. You never gave me ''your'' precious teeth. It made me covet them even ''more''. (''Menacingly'') Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta.
* MemeticMutation:
** Portraying Raven and Robin as bronies is starting to become a thing for fan fiction writers.
** Oddly enough, the ShipTease between Raven and Beast Boy has become an in joke with some circles of the fandom.
** Robin's lack of sleep in "Nose Mouth" is partially because he saw the [[Series/DoctorWho Silence]].
** Fans occasionally, and [[JustForFun jokingly]] compare the show to the various {{dork age}}s of the comics. The most often being the ''ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' variant of the Titans. There's rarely ever a clear “winner.”
** ''All'' of the songs.
** "Fresh!"[[note]]Robin says this while sleep fighting in "Nose Mouth".[[/note]]
** "Law of the jungle, baby!"[[note]]This is Beast Boy responses in "Gorilla" when he questions his authority and becomes the new leader of the Titans.[[/note]]
** Beast Boy dancing as cat with a boom box.
** LAST TUESDAY!
** "MEATBALL PARTY!!!"[[note]]This is the responses the Titans, sans Raven, has when Cyborg has a meatball party.[[/note]]
** "Waffles, waffles, waffles!"[[note]]This is the song Cyborg and Beast Boy sings in "Waffles". Robin, Raven, and Starfire later sings it near the end of the episode.[[/note]]
** [[CrackShip Aquaman/Starfire]] FOREVER!
** The Pee-Pee Dance.
** "This isn't the episode I was promised!"[[note]]CN has, since the end of the 2015 holiday season, consistently given the wrong episode in its schedules. You might even tune in to an episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Clarence}}''.[[/note]]
** "Snug as a bug (in a rug)!"[[note]]Said first by Robin mockingly mimicking Beast Boy's noisy slumber in "Nose Mouth", and ironically by Robin himself at the end of "Garage Sale" as he wears his old costume briefs.[[/note]]
** "Let's Get Serious x.0" [[note]]Due to the number of times where the show blatantly insults [[TakeThatCritics critics]] [[TakeThatAudience and sometimes fans or defenders with legitimate complaints]], especially since the aforementioned episode. As a result, episodes like "Truth, Justice and What?" and "The Return of Slade" are considered a repeat of "Let's Get Serious" [[/note]]
* MisBlamed: A lot of fans have blamed this show for getting ''Young Justice'' cancelled, despite the fact that the latter's producers have already listed out the causes for cancellation, and those causes having nothing to do with ''Teen Titans Go''.[[note]]Merchandise wasn't selling as well as hoped, and while the show had success with a large teenage/young adult female PeripheryDemographic, the network and studio only cared about the poor ratings they had with the preteen male TargetAudience.[[/note]] [[http://epicaistar.tumblr.com/post/77929808658/made-that-for-the-halifax-ttg-crew-last-year This pic]] made by Copernicus Studios, an animation company in Halifax that does some of the animation for ''Teen Titans Go!'', didn't help.
* {{Moe}}:
** Starfire, of course. Her FishOutOfWater status is played up for all its worth in this show, particularly in episodes like "Parasite". She's especially adorable autotuned ("Uncle Jokes").
** Raven has a lot of [[WhenSheSmiles Moe]] [[PuppyDogEyes moments]] herself. Even her TwentiesBobHaircut makes her look cute when it's seen.
*** When she got a toothache after Cyborg fed her a cybernetic meatball.
*** Her cuteness is really expressed in "Pirates". This episode has her [[LuminescentBlush blushing]] and smiling a lot and she gets a cute fishbone {{hair dec|orations}} from Aqualad.
*** "Baby Hands" gives us a look at Raven's original comic outfit; combining it with an eager-to-please attitude [[http://teen-titans-go.wikia.com/wiki/Baby_Hands?file=Raven%2527s_original_costume.png makes her absolutely adorable]].
*** Just a quick cutaway, but when she's tapdancing in the bathroom in "Serious Business", the results are adorable and funny.
** 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.
** Silkie. The creators dialed up his cuteness, save for a few gross moments.
** The Titans in the episode "Halloween" when they are turned into kids by the Halloween Spirit. They are downright huggable, especially when they're wearing their costumes.
** Young Cyborg during the Scary Teri flashback in "Slumber Party".
** Beast Boy doing his maraca head wiggle song in the beginning and end of "Head Fruit".
** Blackfire too.
* SugarWiki/MostWonderfulSound: Starfire's singing at the end of "Breakfast Cheese".
* NoSuchThingAsBadPublicity: Despite the sheer hate this show has gotten, the [[http://comicbook.com/2015/02/25/michael-jelenic-on-teen-titans-gos-young-justice-crossover-and-i/ ratings are still climbing]], ironically ''because'' of said vitriol. As the advertisement say, it's "[[TakeThatCritics your new favorite show]]".
* OlderThanTheyThink:
** Terra's [[spoiler: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. However, [[spoiler:"Be Mine" has given Terra back some of her 2003 qualities, what with her actually falling for BB whereas the original comics version hated him from start to finish.]]
** The show's famous "[=BBRae=]" ship, between Beast Boy and Raven, actually dates all the way back to the comics, and isn't something ''Teen Titans Go!'' made up. Even though it wasn't explored in the original ''Teen Titans'' series, and the WordOfGod for that show clarified several times that these versions weren't supposed to have that kind of relationship and were more LikeBrotherAndSister.
** This show itself wasn't the first time a ''Teen Titans'' based series went for slapstick humor which preceded it. The first time was actually the 2003 series.
* PanderingToTheBase:
** "Rocks and Water" finally has Beast Boy and Raven kissing, which is something the colossal [=BBRae=] fanbase had been dying for.
** "Some of Their Parts" and "Leg Day" are sequels to "Colors of Raven" and "Legs", respectively, two of the most popular episodes in the series.
** {{Defied|Trope}} with "The Return of Slade", which has everything that many fans wanted happen {{offscreen|MomentOfAwesome}}. The rest of the episode is another TakeThat towards ''anybody'' that has a complaint about this show. The episode was so reviled that many saw it as a low point for the series.
* ParanoiaFuel:
** This line from a shrunken Robin to Starfire in "Body Adventure" comes off as a bit creepy due to his StalkerWithACrush tendencies toward her.
-->'''Robin:''' I could be anywhere, at any time, and you would never know. Anyway, just pretend I'm not here. (''Stares at Starfire while creepy music plays.'')
** This line from the talking TV to Cyborg in the episode "Oil Drums", while meant to come off as heartwarming, has shades of this. Not helped by the TV ''[[TheFourthWallWillNotProtectYou staring directly at the screen]]''.
-->'''TV:''' You might be surprised to know that all those years you spent staring at me, I was staring right back at you and it has been a joy to help shape you into the man you are today.
* PeripheryDemographic: Surprisingly, most viewers of Teen Titans Go! are toddlers. This could be due to the attractive artstyle of the show and the fact that it's one of the few things Cartoon Network airs during the time when toddlers watch TV. It constantly gets higher ratings than shows actually aimed at preschoolers and has been the top show of the month in ratings with that demographic several times.
* RootingForTheEmpire:
** Many viewers have found themselves rooting for the villains, especially in episodes where the Titans are being excessively stupid and unsympathetic, while the bad guys are the sane ones. Prominent examples are "Waffles" where Brother Blood is the StraightMan while Beast Boy and Cyborg are being childish {{Jerkass}}es, or "Breakfast Cheese" where the Titans literally beat up the H.I.V.E. for ''[[FelonyMisdemeanor standing around doing nothing]]''.
** The episode "A Farce" takes this UpToEleven where Brother Blood and the Brain take the Titans to court for their careless and reckless destruction of Jump City. They are all found guilty at the end of the episode.
* TheScrappy:
** Cyborg in this incarnation. His deeper, more nuanced characterization from the 2003 series is completely nonexistent. Alongside his best buddy Beast Boy, he is nothing more than a stupid, wild party guy, or mentally backward teenager who only cares about himself.
** This version of Robin is one as well, going from being an actual strong leader to a whiny, arrogant, [[ItsAllAboutMe egotist]] who never stops obsessing how he's the "Lone Wolf Leader", and actually values getting glory over doing heroic deeds.
** This version of Aqualad isn't very popular, due to his ChickMagnet persona being escalated to TheCasanova and he acts like he owns every girl. Not to mention him hitting on Raven clashing with the show's colossal [=BBRae=] fandom.
* SeasonalRot:
** Many view season 2 as this due to the Titans's increasingly idiotic and mean-spirited natures as well as episode plots becoming more bizarre with nonsensical and often abrupt endings. Even a portion of those who were previously fans of season 1 have lost faith in the show. The season also contains some of the most controversial episodes such as "Let's Get Serious", "Truth, Justice, and What?", and "The Return of Slade". The latter of the three was particularly scorned for being both another cruel jab at the show's critics and a blatant, shallow ratings trap that shamelessly lied to its fans, causing many to lose whatever respect for the show they had by that point.
** Season 3 is considered this by some due to more emphasis being put on the Titans' mean-spirited natures, the overuse of '80s references and predictable fourth wall gags, and interesting plots being wasted for the sake of comedy such as the episode "Two Parter", which is considered the worst offender.
* ShipToShipCombat
** Most of ''Teen Titans Go!''[='=]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/Rae and BB/Terra shippers.
** It got worse with "Be Mine", when [[spoiler: Terra comes around to BB's feelings]].
** Zigzagged with "Staring at the Future". Fans of ''Go!'' didn't mind that [[spoiler:Robin hooks up, and has a baby, with Batgirl]], but fans only familiar with the original series found it insulting.
* SnarkBait: Find a fan of the comics or [[WesternAnimation/TeenTitans original show]] and ask them what they think about it.
* SoCoolItsAwesome: The main reason why "40% 40% 20%" is widely considered the series's best episode; it's just too gloriously '80s not to love.
* SoOkayItsAverage:
** Those who don't outright despise the series usually see it as this, stating that while it has more than its share of flaws, it's still watchable.
** Most people's opinion on the crossover with ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' after it finally aired. While many praised the episode for giving Blossom, Bubbles, Buttercup, and Mojo Jojo characterizations more in line with how they were in [[WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls the original series]] as well as the girls and the PPG Narrator delivering several TakeThatScrappy statements to the Titans, the same people are irritated that the Titans treated the girls like babies and ended the episode without learning a thing after the girls proved to be better crimefighters.
* {{Squick}}:
** The frequent vomiting fits the characters do throughout the series.
** 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 in "Ghost Boy" is this in spades.
** Muscley Robin. Especially when he flexes his butt cheeks.
** The entirety of the "Parasite" episode. "Parry" is just [[ScreamingAtSquick nasty]]. Particularly cringeworthy when Robin lets loose several parasites to latch onto his face, and they drain him of all his nutrients.
** 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.
** Beast Boy agonizingly pushing a fish into his head through his ear in "Brain Food". He also put a banana in his ear later in the episode.
** Robin regurgitating ping pong balls nonstop at the end of "Real Magic".
** The Titans being turned into old people by Mad Mod in the episode "Salty Codgers". Also Raven's affections toward old people, which has her hugging and kissing them like one would do a pet, also comes off as this to some. In-Universe, even the Titans think it's disturbing.
** In "Serious Business", you can't tell what's worse: the fact that Starfire uses the toilet to make chili, or that the Titans now know this [[WhatAnIdiot and still eat it]].
** In "Smile Bones", the image of the Titans' bloated stomachs, particular Starfire's, who has ''nine'' stomachs, has been getting this reaction; as has the image of Cyborg and Beast Boy's bellies ''coming to life''. There's also the fact the Titans take out their teeth and put it in each other's mouths.
** The mutation scene in "Truth, Justice, and What".
** Beast Boy getting repeatedly stung by bees and eventually bloating to grotesque proportions in the episode "Two Bumblebees and a Wasp".
** "Head Fruit" has a tree growing out of Beast Boy's head and sprouting fruit, which the Titans eat and even make a drink out of. The episode also has him again jamming things in his ear like a book and a slice of pizza.
** "The Dignity of Teeth" reveals that the Tooth Fairy takes your teeth so he can eat them. And him challenging Raven to an eating competition causes her to develop an appetite for teeth as well.
** Pretty much the entirety of the episode "The Croissant", from Silkie's friend, to the Titans being turned into humanoid insects by Killer Moth, to the vomiting fits being turned UpToEleven.
** "Leg Day" takes a premise from a previous episode (where Raven becomes the KickChick-themed Lady Legasus) and drives it straight into ''this'' territory. ''All'' of the Titans get leg-themed names and musculature... but only in certain areas. Cyborg, a.k.a. Thunder Thighs, has absolutely massive thighs... and little else. Beast Boy, a.k.a. Calves has, you guessed it, massive calves. And the rest of his legs are his normal noodly thinness. The song at the end that borderline fetishizes their hypermuscular legs just adds to the creepy.
* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: A few pop up over the series:
** The rap song that Robin is jamming to in "Driver's Ed" is basically an instrumental version of "Stuntin' Like My Daddy".
** In "The Cruel Giggling Ghoul", during the ScoobyDoobyDoors chase sequence, the song playing is very similar to Patty Smith's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vJ68ovUkw58 "The Warrior."]]
** The music that plays during the ''Anime/DragonBallZ''-esque fight sequence between Robin and the Leprechaun in "Beast Boy's St. Patrick's Day Luck and it's Bad" has the same general arrangement as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-64CaD8GXw "I'm Shipping Up to Boston"]] by Music/DropkickMurphys.
** Scary Monster Dance is almost identical to the Monster Mash.
* TaintedByThePreview: Fans complained about it just from seeing the previews. The show itself only made it worse.
* TakeThatScrappy:
** For those who hate this incarnation of Robin, anytime he gets punished for his actions is quite satisfying. [[AlasPoorScrappy Unless you find it a tad excessive.]]
** If you're not fond of Cyborg and Beast Boy, seeing them getting repeatedly pummeled in "Caramel Apples" might be cathartic to watch. At least, [[IgnoredEpiphany until]] [[KarmaHoudini the]] {{e|tTuBrute}}nding. Similarly, seeing Brother Blood torture them with his Pain Bot in "Waffles" might have you [[RootingForTheEmpire rooting for him]], though the ending where Beast Boy's body has been skeletonized [[AlasPoorScrappy might be a tad bit excessive]].
** "Let's Get Serious" has Aqualad from ''Young Justice'' tear into Robin for having a team full of clowns that are a disgrace to real crime fighters. Not that [[StatusQuoIsGod anything changes]], which the episode itself lampshades and in fact makes a joke of.
** "Cool School" has Rose Wilson dishing painful insults which hurt all of the Titans except Raven.
** To some, the ''entirety'' of "The Fourth Wall", due to Control Freak directly telling the Titans why PeripheryDemographic hates their show and has the Titans watch the original show to show them the difference between them.
** The ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' crossover pretty much goes out of its way to show the Titans at their worst, being rude and incompetent to the Powerpuff Girls. And unlike other episodes that point out the flaws of the show but ultimately tries to lay at least partial blame on the audience for "not getting it", the episode ends with the Powerpuff Girls being disgusted at how amoral and petty the Titans are and the Powerpuff Girls narrator calls them out for being useless and unheroic.
* TastesLikeDiabetes:
** 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 SugarBowl.
** Weaponized against Rose Wilson. Sincere, unironic expressions of ThePowerOfFriendship physically debilitate Rose to the point where she is literally sick to her stomach.
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: As one can tell from the previous tropes, this show has gotten quite a bit of this reaction. Before the show actually aired, even:
** The excessive [[AdaptationPersonalityChange personality changes]] of the Titans to much sillier, jerkish natures is one of the most heavily criticized aspects of the show.
** It {{replac|ementScrappy}}ing ''Young Justice'' in DC Nation didn't help.
** Some fans hated ''Young Justice'' for not being like the early 2000s ''Teen Titans''. Now some people hate this show for not being like ''Young Justice''.
** Back in the day, some fans hated the ''Teen Titans'' series for not being like the ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' comics or any of the Timm/Diniverse toons. Now, some fans hate ''Teen Titans Go!'' for not being like the ''Teen Titans'' series.
** Some have complained about how Raven's hair was changed from [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m5b5sp3FBu1rseq48o1_1280.jpg her earlier unhooded design]].
** There's also the fact that this series isn't the same as the ''New Teen Titans'' shorts that aired 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 [[UpToEleven extreme]] caricatures of themselves. The changes in style that ''Go!'' has are 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.
* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks:
** A common criticism against the show is that it apes the comedy of other shows on Cartoon Network like ''Regular Show'' and ''WesternAnimation/UncleGrandpa''.
** At its worst, many fans even compare it to ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' in its later seasons, in that they feel that it's plagued with lazy characterization, unfunny jokes, [[{{Jerkass}} rampant, unnecessary assholery]] and abrupt nonsensical endings.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: ComicBook/{{Darkseid}} appears in "Two Parter". It turns out that his [[EvilSoundsDeep grovely voice]] is because he has a cold, and actually has the voice of Music/WeirdAlYankovic. Unfortunately, we barely get to hear this voice, let alone sing, and [[AntiClimax is defeated shortly after.]] To many fans, and even haters, it could have been seen as a saving grace of "Two Parter" let alone [[SeasonalRot Season 3]].
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot:
** "Sidekick" has trouble brewing in Gotham. Instead of it being a Batman villain, it's the H.I.V.E. again, who appear often enough in Jump City as it is.
** "In and Out" toyed with the idea of the heroes [[MythologyGag dressing up as their evil counterparts]] to infiltrate the H.I.V.E. tower. So, we get Robin as Red X and Cyborg as Stone. Beast Boy even comes in with an even bigger throwback of the '80s comics with a nostalgic costume.[[note]]Which is fair enough since he doesn't really have an evil counterpart.[[/note]] So, this is where we get to see Blackfire, or at least Starfire's villainous self from a previous episode, and [[SuperpoweredEvilSide Red Raven]] costumes, right? [[spoiler: Wrong. What we get is the girls dressing up as RummageSaleReject villains.]] Even if we overlook all of that, the cool premise of seeing Red X again seems to be wasted by Robin making him look like an unstable jackass from the start, instead of the unflappable stoic badass he was always portrayed as.
** The B plot of "I See You" has a very interesting premise, where Raven is trying to [[RedRightHand hide a potentially devastating secret]], and Cyborg and Beast Boy are tailing her to find out just what the secret is after being told that they were terrible at stakeouts. It is something that could have been dramatically built up across several episodes, thus giving the show a genuine GrowingTheBeard moment and even a ContinuityNod of the [[spoiler:Trigon Arc from the original show]]. Instead, Raven quickly solves her problem by the episode's end. Despite nearly being killed, and not realizing the gravity of the situation happening right in front of them [[spoiler: even after they are accidentally banished to an alternate dimension]], Cyborg and Beast Boy celebrate when they believe that Raven's big secret was that she had a crush on the latter.
** "The Return of Slade" has been heavily criticized for this. The promised battle against [[BigBad Slade]] happens offscreen after he's mentioned for a few minutes. The rest of the episode deals with Cyborg and Beast Boy trying to make a clown DarkerAndEdgier when they feel the clown is too kiddy, and the Titans trying to stop said clown after Cyborg and Beast Boy succeed. To many fans, the episode came off as both a shallow ratings trap and [[TakeThatCritics yet another jab at the show's critics]].
** Played with to "They Missed a Perfectly Good Joke" during the ''WEsternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls2016'' crossover. While it's probably because Bubbles is no longer voiced by Creator/TaraStrong, does anyone else wanted Raven and Bubbles [[LampshadeHanging to comment on each other's voices?]]
* UnfortunateImplications: [[http://leesydreamy.deviantart.com/art/another-top-10-worst-cartoon-episodes-60-51-515528494 It has been noted]] that "Hot Garbage" sends the message that it's okay to embrace hoarding, which is a serious psychological issue for many people today.
* WhatAnIdiot:
** From "In and Out". Want to get rid of a few freeloaders? Blow up your own base! What makes this worse is that both Gizmo and Robin come up with this idea, with equally disastrous results. Lampshaded somewhat when Jinx is rather disapproving of the idea.
** It seems that Robin learned absolutely nothing from "In and Out", and installed a bomb in the Titans' bathroom that goes off in five minutes in "Serious Business". The first time it happens, it nearly sets the whole place on fire and sends the other Titans into a panic.
** In "Real Magic", Robin {{a|vertedTrope}}lmost drowns himself in an attempt to do a magic trick.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids: While the creators have often stated that the show was intended for a younger audience than the original series, this seems suspect when you take into account the following: a) a lot of the humor [[DarkerAndEdgier seems inappropriate for the young audience, including a considerable amount of violence pushing the show into a TV-PG rating]]; and b) many of the pop culture references featured in the show are relatable only to older audiences (kids of the '70s and '80s mostly), including full-episode parodies of ''Series/FantasyIsland'' and ''Series/GilligansIsland'' and loving homages to ''Series/TheATeam'' and ''Series/TheGoldenGirls''.
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: A vast number of the more bizarre episodes of the show, especially in season 2, will more often than not have you wondering how high the writers were during the creation of these episodes.
** "Dude Relax" has a high-strung Robin attempting to relax by following Beast Boy's advice and being "one with the couch", which has him literally sinking into a world within the couch where he meets the Couch Spirit and goes on a trip through his past life in the circus.
** "Burger vs. Burrito" where a contest between Beast Boy and Cyborg to see which is the better food culminates in the two fighting each other with a burger-shaped giant robot and a giant burrito monster created by Raven's magic, respectively.
** "Breakfast Cheese" has Robin being bitten by a spider and ends up getting a DisneyAcidSequence, which involves a green-skinned Cyborg and Raven with six arms.
** The second half of "Puppets Whaaaaat?" where the Titans are turned into realistic puppets by the evil Puppet Wizard, who himself is a real-life sock puppet. The entire second half of the episode takes place in the real world and at one point, the Titans are chased by a literal paper tiger.
** "Sandwich Thief" has Robin dragging the team to outer space under the belief that his sandwich became sentient and flew to outer space. [[spoiler: Not only does this prove to be true, but the sandwich also has been meditating and decides that [[OmnicidalManiac all life must be destroyed]], leading to a fight between the Titans and the superpowered sandwich.]]
** "Money Grandma", where an attempt to teach Robin humility as a leader results in Raven using a time machine to bring George Washington to the present to talk to him. When Robin loses an election to him, he spitefully decides to go back and change the past so that he can be the first President of the United States.
** The chase scene with the Titans and Mad Mod in "Salty Codgers", which also doubles as a MythologyGag to the original series.
** The episode "Serious Business". Particularly the ending, where it turns out bathrooms are an alien species that moved to Earth.
** Pretty much the entire trip inside Raven's mind in the episode "Crazy Day" which features Starfire as the Sphinx, Beast Boy and Cyborg as Chess pieces, and Robin as a gate. And when it's revealed that it was all a part of Trigon's plot to drive her insane and turn her evil, Raven turns the tables and uses her magic to transport the Titans into his mind to annoy him.
** "Smile Bones", where a crack at morbid obesity leads to extreme {{Balloon Bell|y}}ies, which sprout limbs, faces, and gain lives of their own.
** "Hose Water", which has Starfire and Cyborg regressing younger after they "embrace their inner-child", and end up reverting to eggs. They then get taken to "Baby Land" which is apparently where every baby comes from.
** "Oil Drums" has the Titans's brains rotting from lack of television (with the exception of Cyborg), which eventually turns them into zombies obsessed with outdoor activities. Cyborg is then rescued [[ItMakesSenseInContext by an anthropomorphic TV]], which then leads to the two of them going on an adventure to find the missing remote, which was kidnapped by criminals for an unknown purpose.
** "Kicking a Ball and Pretending to Be Hurt", which reveals that every ball on earth are eggs that contains a magical troll or animal.
** "Head Fruit" has Beast Boy's brain planting a tree in his head and using it to escape into a world in the clouds.
** "And the Award for Sound Design Goes to Rob" has Raven wishing away sound due to an ill-conceived [[DealWithTheDevil deal with an evil spirit]] called the Whisperer. After tricking the Whisperer to return the Titans voices, they discover the rest of the world has become a "sound vacuum" and retains the sounds the Titans make. The rest of the episode has the voice actors making silly sound effects for everything in the show, including misfitting ones like farting sounds for punches, a tongue wagging sound for farts, and "Hey hey hey" for Silkie crawling.
** "[=BBBDay=]" came up with the crack induced explanation that failure to celebrate birthdays causes the person to start aging out of control, spontaneously becoming older and younger. This happens to Beast Boy who becomes an old man and a baby throughout the episode.
* WhatTheHellCastingAgency:
** "Weird Al" Yankovic, using his goofy voice, as ''Darkseid''. And thing is? The way it's done is just CrazyEnoughToWork. [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter A shame it didn't last long.]]
** On the writers side, casting writers from [[WesternAnimation/{{MAD}} a satirical show not afraid to give mean-spirited]] TakeThat jokes is probably not the best one to hire, even for a superhero comedy.
* TheWoobie:
** Raven in any episode when the other Titans are being immature, obnoxious jerks and she has to put up with them.
** Gray Raven in "Colors of Raven". She's in a constant state of helpless fear, has [[VomitIndiscretionShot 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.
** Starfire. Even when she was younger, her sister would often act jerkish to her and she would only forgive her at the end. In "Starfire the Terrible", she gets mocked for being nice when trying to be a villain.
