  • 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.
