  • Double Standard: Abuse, Female on Male: Raven's frequent smacking of Beast Boy, either physically or telekinetically, is almost always Played for Laughs on the show due to the cartoonish style of the series. Surprisingly, Starfire and Robin, on the other hand, subvert this trope: you would expect a naive alien girl with super-strenght to be a perfect opportunity for this trope, but Starfire only hit Robin in the pilot, which wasn't played for laughs. For the remaining of the show, she acts actually extremely nice toward him and never abuse him, despite being obviously the strongest of the two.

We NEED a recap entry for Haunted. It's one of the most talked about episodes of the series, and in the running for best episode crowner.

Pulled:

Pettanko is not a trope. UsefulNotes.Pettanko is a fanspeak term definition only. The tropes are A-Cup Angst (girl is sensitive about her lack of size) or Petite Pride (girl is proud of her flat-chestedness). Anything else is not a trope. Please return this example to the page under the correct trope if (and only if) it fits one of those two tropes.

Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo

  • Animation Age Ghetto

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: In the end of the film, Raven does this to Beast Boy after he made his last and somewhat awkward comment: "Okay, next time, we're going to Mexico!". She then coldly slaps him sensless off the stage, the camera fades after that, then the credits roll.

  • No Periods, Period: Suspected aversion. Throughout the movie, Raven is short-tempered and acts uncharacteristically mean to Beast Boy, leading to fans speculating that she was on her period. However, this is not addressed in-context.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Raven, from her lethal attitude towards BB, mostly physical.

  • Affectionate Parody: One of Japanese kids' shows/films from yesteryear, such as Astro Boy and Spirited Away.

  • Played for Laughs: What Raven/BB are doing reflects a type of comedy that Japan has called Manzai, where there is a serious straight and an irreverent idiot (tsukkomi/boku), only it's in an American parody and mockery of the orginal Japanese Manzai.

  • Indecisive Parody: They did an exellent job portraying real life Japan in the eyes of the creators of the Teen Titans Animated Series. What makes this a true indecisive parody is that every book written in the fictional Tokyo, Japan are all about gum. One brand has a funny & stupid/idiotic name, also with no particular flavor ever mentioned: "Super Twinkle Donkey Gum"

  • The Complainer Is Always Wrong: Beast Boy I know, And his friends they can't stand him & his corny jokes.

  • Direct-to-DVD: came out on DVD, one year after it aired on Cartoon Network in 2006.

  • Big Damn Movie: Teen Titans: Trouble In Tokyo

  • Made-for-TV Movie: What do you think!

  • Dude, Where's My Respect??: Beast Boy

  • No Respect Guy: Beast Boy, who else?

  • Ship Sinking: What makes the movie real sad for some fans was that the relationships between Beast Boy & Raven was being used for laughs from beginning to end.

This page should not be here, there is a button-link to a TV adaptation of a work which is found at header Series/ This page was already there, which had all this information and the bonus of being an automatic link on all Teen Titans pages (They're at the top, next to the YMMV, WMG, etc. links).

Unfortunately, whoever made this page has already edited Series/TeenTitans into a redirect, and I do not know how to get in and edit a redirect. Whoever does, please recreate Teen Titans and make this page a redirect to that page.
