Voiced by: Keith Szarabajka (English, "Nevermore"), Kevin Michael Richardson (English, all other appearances), Isshin Chiba (Japanese), Frank Maneiro (Latin American Spanish, "Nevermore"), Guillermo Martínez (Latin American Spanish, all other appearances)

Powers/Abilities: Physical God - a list of powers he doesn't have would be shorter

An extremely powerful demon lord, and Raven's father, who intends to use her as the key to a portal that will allow him to enter and devastate Earth. Unlike majority of the characters from the comics that were featured in the series, he's more or less the same as his comic counterpart.


  • Abusive Parents: Season 4 was one long nightmare for Raven because her father tormented her mentally and then turned her into a portal.
  • Adaptational Jerkass: While all versions of Trigon treat Raven horribly, most versions do at least care for her on some level (even if it is extremely unhealthy) and genuinely want to be with her. The animated version, however, cares nothing for her and even casually tries to kill her once he has no use for her.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Raven. Ever since she was a kid, he's been causing trouble for her.
  • Arc Villain: Never shows up as a villain following the fourth season. Considering he was visibly disintegrated, even if his spirit survived, he's probably not up for another attempt on the mortal world any time soon.
  • Ascended Extra: Went from being the Villain of the Week very early on in the series to being the Arc Villain of the fourth season.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His size varies somewhat, but is consistently huge; in "The End" he's large enough to use the Tower as a throne.
  • Bad Boss: Betrays Slade after he delivers Raven. Slade is smart enough to anticipate this possibility, and made his own preparations. He's also this to his 2013 counterpart and has equally disastrous results.
  • Because Destiny Says So/You Can't Fight Fate: He believes that he's destined to conquer "the world of mortals" and that nothing can stop him. But he is defeated by Raven two episodes after his debut.
  • Big Bad: Season 4 is driven by his Evil Plan to turn Raven into his doorway of conquest.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: He and his Teen Titans Go! counterpart are the main villains of the crossover movie Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans.
  • Big Red Devil: The form he assumes upon entering the mortal world. Emphasis on the big.
  • Breath Weapon: Being a demon, it is fire, of course.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: It's understandable, given that he's an eight-story-tall red demon.
  • Cannibalism Superpower: On the receiving end of this from 2013 Trigon due to pushing him too much.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Slade and Brother Blood were both human, with the former's goal involving finding an apprentice, and the latter generally sought after power. Trigon is a literal demon, being far outside the power scale of almost every other character in the series, and unlike Slade and Brother Blood, lacks any sort of sense of humor.
  • Deal with the Devil: As the Devil to Slade's Faust, he offered to give Slade his body back in return for him delivering Raven. Naturally, he screwed Slade over afterward.
  • Dimension Lord: Of Fire and Brimstone Hell, but the word "Hell" is never used.
  • The Dreaded: Even the citizens of Tamaran have heard of and fear him.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared (unnamed) in the first season episode "Nevermore".
  • Enemy Without: He creates these for the Titans when they try to distract him.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Pulls this on Slade. Slade, however, had contingencies.
  • Evil Is Burning Hot: He comes from a fiery plane, and many of his attacks involve fire.
  • Evil Is Hammy: "Subtle and restrained" doesn't really work when you're a skyscraper-sized demon lord, and so it's small wonder Trigon doesn't bother.
  • Evil Overlord: Again, he's already the ruler of Hell and has designs on Earth.
  • Evil Plan: Use his daughter to enter "the world of mortals" and lay waste to it.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice is vast, deep, and guttural- Slade's sounds downright pleasant next to it.
  • Eye Beams: One of the most common ways he manifests his magic is with zig-zagging red bolts out of all four eyes.
  • God of Evil: Consistently billed as the ultimate incarnation of all evil; his power level backs up the claim.
  • Incoming Ham: After spending his first few appearances as either a manifestation of Raven's psyche ("Nevermore") or a spooky disembodied voice (the first few episodes of the Season Four arc) he marks his first physical appearances in "The End, Part I" with a thunderous shout of "the Earth is mine!" and never lets the ham up from there.
  • Jerkass: He betrayed his own daughter, and everyone he's ever worked with, including his 2013 self. Then again, he's called "The Terrible" for obvious reasons.
  • Killed Off for Real: Either that or he was banished; regardless, he never came back given the show never properly concluded. If truly dead, he holds the distinction of being the only character killed off during the series that stays dead, with his depictions in the Titans Go! comic and cartoon being non-canon. It sticks for real at the end of Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans due to losing his daughter's 2013 counterpart's powers.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Even more than Slade. If Trigon's involved, bad, bad things are in store. To put things in perspective, he only appeared in five episodes (six, if you count "Nevermore" where it's debatable if the manifestation of him that appears in Raven's mind is the real deal or not) and all of them were among the show's darkest, creepiest, and most intense.
  • Made of Evil: His comic origins stated that he came into being when the inhabitants of Azarath expelled the evil within them, and that coalesced into a being that came to be Trigon.
  • The Magnificent: Trigon "the Terrible".
  • Manipulative Bastard: So good that he was able to dupe Slade into thinking that he was being sincere. However, as it turned out, Slade had second guesses.
  • Never My Fault: Gets tricked by both Ravens into getting a drink and allowing them to escape and blames his 2013 version for his own idiocy.
  • Not So Invincible After All: Nothing the Titans do does more than hurt his pride. It takes Raven's return in "white mood" with a "No More Holding Back" Speech to stop him.
  • Obviously Evil: He's a horned, glowing-eyed red demon the size of a skyscraper. When you're the embodiment of cosmic evil, why shouldn't you show off what you are?
  • Omnicidal Maniac: "He comes to claim, he comes to sire; the end of all things mortal."
  • Orcus on His Throne: Once he arrives, he does little besides sit on his throne (A defaced Titans Tower) and act smug.
  • Physical God: Barring Raven's White form and possibly Larry, he's far and away the most powerful thing in the show, and not at all shy about letting you know it. He devastated the world and petrified its entire population with a gesture.
  • Playing with Fire: He breathes fire.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: All four of his eyes glow red; before he manages to enter the mortal world, those eyes are all that's visible of him when he talks to Slade or Raven.
  • Satanic Archetype: A big red devil from a world of fire and brimstone that dupes mortals into working for him.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: In season four, where his daughter Raven becomes his portal into the world, allowing him to turn every creature in the biosphere into stone and cover the planet in lava.
  • Smug Super: His power is matched only by the sheer force of his ego.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Given that he's a demon, this is the most likely result with any human woman, but Arella is quite a beauty.
  • Ultimate Evil: He is the greatest evil in the Titanverse; the source and embodiment of it.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: His hair is white and is the supreme embodiment of evil.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: To Slade. This doesn't go so well for him, as Slade is prepared for a betrayal, and gives the Titans the information they need to recover Raven, leading to Trigon's defeat. He also cuts off both of Trigon's horns. He's on the receiving end of this after pushing his 2013 self to his limit he gets devoured for it.

"I always was the better fighter."

Powers/Abilities: Flight, Super Strength, Starbolts, Language Assimilation

Starfire's self-absorbed big sister. Cares only about her own comfort and power.


  • Abled in the Adaptation: She can fly, unlike her original comic counterpart, who suffered from a childhood illness that made her unable to.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, Blackfire showed she could be a good queen and at least tried to make up for selling her sister out to the Citadel. They just couldn't repair their relationship because Starfire understandably wasn't going to accept they were cool after the latter sold her into slavery, beat her up when Starfire saved her life, and then forcibly took her claim to the throne. There is none of that here; Blackfire sold out Starfire For the Evulz and she then tries framing her for the crimes that Blackfire committed in the Centauri system. When that failed, Blackfire spent the rest of her screentime in the show and Teen Titans Go comics either attempting to humiliate Starfire in a flying race, force her into an Arranged Marriage so she could get a powerful jewel, and so on. The Teen Titans Go comics shows that their relationship disintegrated when Starfire believes that her sister sold out their little brother to Madam Rouge so the latter could impersonate him. Blackfire at least looks regretful when Starfire disowns her once and for all.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Blackfire has auburn hair in the comics. Here, she has purple hair.
  • Adaptation Explanation Extrication: The reason why she holds a grudge against Starfire is that in the comics, Starfire was named the heir over her and Blackfire was The Unfavorite. Blackfire merely references in "Betrothed" that she took over Tamaran "for kicks" and staged a coup.
  • Aloof Big Sister: She mostly acts arrogant and condescending toward Starfire when not pretending to be friendly to her.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Starfire because of the sister thing.
  • Big Sister Bully: Constantly mistreats Starfire and is willing to frame her for crimes she committed and force her into an Arranged Marriage for her benefit, to name a few examples.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She acts like a friendly Cool Big Sis in her debut in "Sisters", but it's all an act to hide that she framed Starfire for her crimes.
  • Blunt "Yes": When Starfire accuses her of framing her for crimes on Centauri, Blackfire simply says, "Oh...well...yeah."
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Starfire's Abel because of her schemes and bitchiness.
  • Color Character: Mostly defined by the colors black and purple.
  • Contralto of Danger: She has a low, husky voice that contrasts with her sister's high, sweet one, and she's definitely dangerous.
  • Cool Big Sis: The other Titans think of her as Starfire's charming older sister because she bonds with them at their hobbies, but she's just acting the part. The façade falls at the end of her first episode.
  • Dark Action Girl: A powerful Tamaranean and very deadly in her own right.
  • Dub Name Change: Becomes "Amalia" in the Italian dub of the first Season.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The Teen Titans Go comics has her claim this while in Earth prison, when she has nowhere to run or conquer. She tells Starfire that for all their grudges, she would never sell our their little brother to the likes of Madam Rouge and the shapeshifter likes messing with people's heads. Wildfire was an innocent party in their Sibling Rivalry. Starfire doesn't believe her, because Blackfire has lied to her before about having standards.
  • Evil All Along: Seems to be a Cool Big Sis in her debut episode, but turns out to be a Bitch in Sheep's Clothing who doesn't care about her younger sister.
  • Evil Brunette Twin: Well, she's not her twin, but she looks exactly like Starfire, except with black hair and eyes.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Starfire, right down to the darker wardrobe.
  • Expy: To X-Men's villain Deathbird, who precedes Blackfire's creation by three years, and just like her is also an evil alien princess driven by hatred for her younger, more heroic sister.
  • Femme Fatale: She'll use her looks to her advantage.
  • Flying Brick: Much like her sister, she has flight and Super Strength.
  • Flying Firepower: Again, like Starfire, she has the starbolts.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: After breaking out of prison, she gains control of Tamaran as its new Grand Ruler. She's only overthrown when Starfire defeats her in a battle for the throne.
  • Human Aliens: Unlike her sister, she looks indistinguishable from a human due to having white sclera and a "normal" skin tone compared to Starfire's orange skin. She also speaks in a much more casual fashion so she doesn't sound as stiff as Starfire sometimes does.
  • Interspecies Romance: New Teen Titans shows her married to Glgrdsklechhh; this was implied to be her fate at the end of "Betrothed", when Starfire banishes her from Tamaran.
  • Kick the Morality Pet: Maybe. The Teen Titans Go comics reveal that the youngest in their family, Wildfire, was her Morality Pet. Wildfire disappeared a while back, and Starfire gets no leads on what happened to him due to Blackfire selling her out to the Gordanians. If we believe Madam Rouge, Blackfire did a Villain Team-Up with her and told her the exact information needed to impersonate Wildfire. Blackfire claims that she did no such thing because Wildfire is off-limits between her and Starfire in their Sibling Rivalry. When Starfire doesn't believe her and disowns her, Blackfire truly looks regretful.
  • Most Common Superpower: Just as well endowed as her sister.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: The Teen Titans Go! comic revealed she was the one who had given Starfire to the Gordanians as a peace offering to keep them from invading Tamaran. If you saw the episode "GO!", you can figure what happened after they left the planet.
  • Properly Paranoid: In "Betrothed", she personally deals with Robin when the latter tries to talk Starfire out of the Arranged Marriage rather than use her guards. Blackfire ambushes him with Hand Gagging just as Starfire suggests he not come to the ceremony if he feels this strongly. Given Robin can fight metahumans to a standstill if not outright defeating him, this paranoia was warranted; in the climax, he reveals to Starfire that the marriage was a ruse and Blackfire trick.
  • Purple Is Powerful: She wears the same purple metal on her outfit as Starfire.
  • Really Gets Around: An implied G-rated version. Her people learn new languages by kissing, and Blackfire's English is perfect — she probably kissed a lot of boys in order to learn to speak English so well. Further implied by her flirty, seductive nature.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: With Starfire. Where her sister is friendly and cheerful and endearingly awkward, she is manipulative, smug and blends into new cultures quickly.
  • Significant Double Casting: She shares a voice actress with her sister.
  • The Sociopath: She lacks empathy towards her own sister, Starfire, only incriminating her for her own crimes, and trying to kill her in the process. The only person who receives her real empathy is her little brother Wildifire, if we believe her.
  • Surprisingly Good English: She speaks casually and uses contractions unlike her sister, and knowing both her Femme Fatale status and Bizarre Alien Biology, she probably kissed a lot of boys in order to learn perfect English.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: New Teen Titans shows her married to Glgrdsklechhh, a fat and green slime thing while she is quite the knock out.
  • Unreliable Expositor: In her last Teen Titans Go appearance, she tells Starfire that Madam Rouge was lying and she would never have sold out their little brother for an Earthling supervillain to impersonate Wildfire. The villain also has a habit of lying For the Evulz, as a means of manipulating Starfire and her friends. Starfire doesn't believe her, for obvious reasons.
  • Villainous Crush: Downplayed. She seems interested in Robin in her debut episode but never shows it again in her subsequent appearance, implying she may have shown romantic interest purely to screw with Starfire's head.

Red X

Powers/Abilities: Badass Normal, various anti-Titans weapons in the suit, low-powered flight and cloaking

"Not everyone likes to play the big villain, kid. I'm a thief. I'm not threatening your precious city - just looking out for number one."
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/red_x_9459.jpg

A mysterious thief who stole a suit and identity Robin had previously used to get close to Slade. On no one's side but his own.


  • Above Good and Evil: He says that he doesn't want to be a super villain or threaten the city, but he also doesn't want to use his gadgets for good either. That said, his interests fall more in line with the good side of the spectrum than evil.
  • Affably Evil: It's downplayed to Affably Morally Ambiguous. He's pretty friendly and polite while kicking your ass.
  • Aloof Ally: He joins the Titans against large threats, and respects Robin as a rival, but he's a thief and therefore isn't really on their side either.
  • Anti-Hero: He has some baseline heroism, but he's really working for himself. He puts it best himself: he's neither hero nor villain; he's just doing whatever the hell he wants, wherever that happens to fall.
  • Anti-Villain: Heavily discussed by Robin as when it comes to Red X, the line between Good and Evil becomes blurred. Red X is a self-proclaimed thief, but that's as far as he goes. He isn't out to play the big bad villain, having standards and his own code of honor, and will even step in to help when someone truly evil shows up.
  • Arch-Enemy: Robin's secondary nemesis next to Slade, due to him stealing his former persona. That said, he's decidedly friendlier than one would expect.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Robin, after siding with him.
  • Badass Baritone: The mask modulates his voice into something deeper.
  • Badass Cape: Obvious as he's the counterpart of Robin, he wears a cool cape himself.
  • Badass Normal: Like Robin, his abilities are martial arts and his suit (that he stole from Robin). When he fights the various meta humans of the verse, it's clear he has the advantage.
  • Blank White Eyes: From the mask that he never takes off.
  • Breakout Villain: The character himself starts out as Robin's alter ego, but gets more fleshed out as a separate character who stole the suit from Robin, providing an opposite motivation not only to the heroes but the villains as well.
  • Canon Immigrant: An original creation to the show, who 17 years later would debut proper in DC comics.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He proudly admits he's a thief, but that doesn't make him the big villain and he has no intention of harming innocents.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: Again, presumably. Despite the lack of any evident superpowers, he shares Robin's inhuman fighting skills.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He'll do whatever it takes to win.
  • Cool Mask: It's part of an "anti-titan" suit, all black, and marked with a red "X".
  • Creepy Monotone: He sounds very much like Robin. Which is very understandable in his first appearance: not so much from his second onward.
  • Dance Battler: His fighting techniques resemble dance moves.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He has a dry sense of humor intermingled with shades of sarcasm.
  • Enemy Mine: Both times he's appeared, he eventually joins with Robin.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Despite being a petty thief, he forms an Enemy Mine with Robin and the Titans because he is disgusted with the more villainous characters.
  • Evil Counterpart: Rather, Morally Ambiguous Counterpart. To Robin for being a Badass Normal with cool gadgets that steals instead of fighting thieves. Most evident when they team up in "X", where they mirror each other in fighting style.
  • Evil Versus Oblivion: He will assist the heroes without hesitation if a bigger threat emerges and endangers the lives of everyone in the city. Can't be a thief who steals for a living if there's no city to steal from.
  • Expressive Mask: Again, like Robin he has impressive expressions in his mask.
  • Expy: Red X has a lot in-common with Red Hood; a red-colored Anti-Hero Secret Identity Identity taken by Robin (in this case, Dick Grayson instead of Jason Todd) created to hunt down villains in ways that their mainstream Bat-family persona could not. In this case, while Red Hood was originally a villainous persona that was taken by a hero (the original Red Hood having turned into The Joker), here it is the other way around (the Red X suit stolen by a thief from Robin's storage).
  • The Faceless: Lampshaded and parodied in this animated short. His identity is still the series' best-kept secret.
  • Flash Step: His signature technique; the Applied Phlebotinum powering the suit allows him to seemingly teleport short distances instantly.
  • Friendly Enemy: He parts on somewhat good terms with the Titans at the end of his second appearance, though he promises they are "even now."
  • Fuel Meter of Power: The Red X suit runs on "Xenothium." In his first appearance, Red X's supply is running low and he needs to refill it.
  • Gentleman Thief: Red X doesn't go after innocent people or put them in harm's way. He also seems to care about whether or not a city full of people is going to be disintegrated because of a psychotic villain, as well as whether or not Robin is going to fall to his death.
    Robin: I thought you didn't like to play the hero.
    Red X: Doesn't mean I don't know how.
  • Grey-and-Gray Morality: He's neither The Cape nor the Card-Carrier. He's just making a living through petty crime.
  • Honor Among Thieves: He's a thief and has no shame of it, but he's ready to help out when truly evil villains are threatening the city.
  • Heroic Neutral: While he will rob banks and businesses, he will repay his debts, and when a city was threatened with disintegration due to a villain's scheme, he interfered, even when he could have made a clean getaway if he hadn't.
  • It's All About Me: Cares for little else than himself and admits as much, although him forming an Enemy Mine with Robin implies he cares for more than he lets on.
  • Legacy Character: The first Red X was Robin's alter ego used to get closer to Slade. Then an unknown individual got a hold of the suit, and uses the identity as a thief.
  • Lovable Rogue: He's a thief but he DOES have a good side, which includes helping the Teen Titans sometimes.
  • Meaningful Name: In American homework grading, a red x indicates a mistake. Red X is Robin's.
  • Noble Demon: He makes himself out to be a petty thief that cares for nothing but himself, but in both appearances he's helped the Titans, even when it wasn't in his self-interest to do so.
  • No Name Given: Red X's real identity has never been given. The primary suspect from both the show and the fandom appears to be Jason Todd, the second Robin, with Beast Boy even theorizing this.
  • The Real Remington Steele: The original purpose for Red X is to disguise Robin so he can infiltrate Slade's latest Evil Plan.
  • Riddle for the Ages: Who he is and what he looks like. As he put it himself in his debut appearance, "If I wanted you to know that, would I be wearing a mask?"
  • The Stoic: He speaks in a monotone, and usually reacts to pain with mild sarcasm.
  • Skull for a Head: His mask has a skull where the face would be.
  • Shadow Archetype: To Robin. He's essentially a more amoral version of Robin.
  • The Unreveal: Who exactly is the second Red X you ask? Unfortunately, we never found out before the series got canceled.
  • Villain Respect: To Robin. He respects him as a rival, helps him out if he feels he might need it, and even calls him "kid" in a good-natured way.
  • Wild Card: Could help the villain, could help the hero, or could screw both of them over if it benefits him.
  • Worthy Opponent: He sees Robin as one. Despite their conflict, a part of Red X seems to like Robin enough to help him on occasion.
  • "X" Makes Anything Cool: Not just his name and mask, his entire weapon arsenal features X motifs.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: At one point, he taunts the Titans by pointing to the X insignia on his chest and quipping "X marks the spot".

Leadership

    H.I.V.E. Headmistress 

H.I.V.E. Headmistress

Voiced by: Andrea Romano

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/headmistress.jpg

The former principal and coordinator of H.I.V.E. Academy


  • Canon Foreigner: Was created for the show.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: She's mysteriously absent when Cyborg infiltrates H.I.V.E. Academy, except for her missing portrait photo appearing on a milk carton.
  • Descended Creator: Her voice actress did the series' voice casting.
  • Face on a Milk Carton: With Brother Blood replacing her, her only appearance during the episode "Deception" is when her face appears in a missing photo on a milk carton.
  • No Name Given: She's only known as "H.I.V.E. Headmistress".
  • Prim and Proper Bun: She's a serious principal who wears a high bun.
  • The Unfought: Despite being one of the highest-ranking members of the HIVE Academy, she never directly confronts the Titans herself.
  • You Have Failed Me: After her students get defeated by the Titans, she promises Slade that she will "strictly discipline" them for their failure.

    Brother Blood 

Brother Blood

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brother_blood_teen_titans_3352.jpg

Voiced by: John DiMaggio (English), Néstor Araujo (Latin American Spanish), Vladimiro Conti (IT)

Powers/Abilities: Mind Control, telekinesis, teleportation, superstrength, photographic memory, energy blasts. As a cyborg, gains all of Cyborg's powers as well.

Head of the HIVE in season three, and Cyborg's Arch-Enemy. A powerful psychic with a flair for Mind Control.


  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Brother Blood's powers are fairly different to what they were in the comics, who possessed invulnerability and super strength due to his mystical shawl, while here he is a powerful psychic who mind controls his students to keep them under his thrall.
  • Arc Villain: He's only a major threat during season 3. He's not present before or after.
  • Arch-Enemy: His relationship with Cyborg is comparable to Robin/Slade; deeply personal and involves one becoming like the other.
  • Bad Boss: Yells at Jinx, Gizmo, and Mammoth for failing him and threatens to send them to their doom if they fail him again.
  • Big Bad: Of Season 3.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He teaches a supervillain school that includes courses on doomsday threats and "Theory of Mayhem".
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He's last reported to be in jail and isn't even mentioned after the third season. He doesn't even get to join the Brotherhood of Evil.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Unlike the quiet, stoic Slade, he's loud and bombastic. He also has superpowers, whereas Slade was an Empowered Badass Normal.
  • Cool Old Guy: Blood's age is never explicitly stated, but if his physical appearance is anything to go by, he's at least in late middle-age. He's also one of the deadliest hand-to-hand combatants on the show.
  • Cyborg: He becomes partly mechanical in his quest to become more like Cyborg and better control others.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: In his second appearance, where he goes to great expense to build and use a doomsday device.
  • Doppelgänger: He becomes obsessed with Cyborg to the point of wanting to be him. At first he just wants to dissect Cyborg to figure out why he can resist mind control, then he wants to steal Cyborg's technology to use it as a weapon, duplicates Cyborg's tech to create an army of robots, and finally he undergoes automation so that he can literally become Cyborg himself. It's very unsettling, to say the least.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: When losing to Cyborg, he furiously asks what it is that enables Cyborg to resist him.
  • Evil Counterpart: Actively seems to become one for Cyborg including making himself into a cyborg.
  • Evil Mentor: Professionally, too; he runs HIVE Academy and therefore serves as mentor for a whole rising generation of supervillains.
  • Evil Old Folks: Though exactly how old isn't specified; his face isn't lined, but his grey hair and general demeanor point towards an older man.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He presents himself as polite and charismatic. But he's a ruthless and sadistic supervilllain who has no problem with trying to flood a city or threaten his students' lives if they displease him.
  • Flanderization: He was in his first appearance a cool-headed, charismatic leader who only overacted when playing to an audience; later appearances made him a straight Large Ham.
  • Flock of Wolves: He gets frustrated with how many times one of his students turn out to be The Mole.
    "Was anyone at my school actually there to LEARN?"
  • Foil: Explicitly written as one to Slade. In appearance, Slade cloaked himself in black whereas Blood first appears draped in white. In behavior Slade is stoic and secretive where Blood is demonstrative and a Large Ham. Slade turns people to his side through force and blackmail, whereas Blood uses suggestive mind control. Even their tactics are complete opposites: Slade's goal is to transform Robin into a smaller version of Slade, whereas Blood's goal is to turn himself into Cyborg. The writers have said that writing Blood was a challenge because they wanted him to be so thoroughly different from their previous Big Bad but still be a menacing threat.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: They kick in whenever he's actively using his powers.
  • Interim Villain: Briefly replaces Slade as the go-to villain, and never shows up following his Story Arc, but his defeat indirectly led to the H.I.V.E Five getting formed, and eventually, Jinx pulling a Heel–Face Turn.
  • In Name Only: To put it bluntly, this Brother Blood is borderline unrecognizable from the comics version. This is likely due to the fact that the one from the comics is far from being appropriate for children.
  • Klingon Promotion: It's implied he may have done this to the previous headmistress of H.I.V.E.; look closely in "Deception" and you'll see her missing portrait photo on the side of a milk carton. Subverted later when the old headmistress is among the villains gathered by the Brotherhood of Evil.
  • Large Ham: He was deliberately written as an expressive and high energy villain to contrast with Slade.
  • Lean and Mean: Another contrast to Cyborg, Blood has a narrow build.
  • Light Is Not Good: Mostly wears white and gold robes and manifests most of his Psychic Powers with light of some form, but is the third season's Big Bad.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Especially in his first appearance, when he uses a combination of his mind control and manipulation to control his students, and even Cyborg - or rather, it would have worked if Cyborg's cybernetics didn't reject Blood's psychic influence.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: In the comics, Blood was a cult-leading Evil Sorcerer; here, the source of his abilities is more vague, but since he's never shown using any of the same trappings as the explicitly magical characters, it seems at least as likely that he's just a natural-born telepath.
  • New Powers as the Plot Demands: Blood has a wide range of psychic powers and seems to be able to do whatever the current plot calls for. It's not just "mind control".
  • Pick on Someone Your Own Size: Like Slade, his chief enmity is with a teenager - Cyborg, in Blood's case. Interestingly, Cyborg is bigger than Blood.
  • Psychic Powers: Including mind control, energy manipulation, telekinesis, and teleportation.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Under his white gown, Brother Blood wear a red and black gear.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes glow bright red when using his powers; people under his control also sometimes demonstrate glowing red eyes.
  • Smug Snake: Blood's good at what he does, but his ego far outstrips his capacities.
  • Strong and Skilled: Stronger than Cyborg and trained in martial arts (the fights are never in Cyborg's favor).
  • You Are What You Hate: He becomes so obsessed with Cyborg that he gives himself cybernetic upgrades in order to compete with him and figure out what it is in Cyborg's cybernetics that allows him to resist his mind control.

The HIVE Five

    In general 
  • Academy of Evil: The academy is about teaching teenagers to become mercenaries and Card Carrying Villains (with subjects like "Theory of Mayhem").
  • Artifact Title: In-universe, the HIVE Five started with five members in "Mother Mae-Eye". By "Lightspeed", one had left (Private HIVE) and two more joined (Billy Numerous and Kyd Wykkyd), causing Kid Flash to ask why they have six members.
  • Composite Character: The H.I.V.E Five are an amalgamation of the H.I.V.E. and the Fearsome Five.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Teen Titans, being a team of teenage villains rather than heroes.
  • Numerical Theme Naming: The HIVE Five.
  • Physical, Mystical, Technological: For the HIVE trio Mammoth is Physical, Jinx is Mystical, and Gizmo is Technological.
  • The Remnant: The actual HIVE Academy was destroyed in the third season premier, and Brother Blood was prevented from recreating it. Its members continued being supervillains, both as individuals and as part of the HIVE Five.
  • The Rival: Have this sort of relationship with the Titans rather than being their outright Arch-Enemy.
  • Sixth Ranger: Billy Numerous, See-More, Private Hive, and Kyd Wykkyd all join the team later on.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Jinx has been the sole female member of the team throughout the whole series.

Jinx

Voiced by: Lauren Tom (English, most appearances), Nami Kurokawa (Japanese), Tara Strong (English, "Titans Together"), Rebeca Aponte (Latin American Spanish), Perla Liberatori (IT, Episode 3), Monica Vulcano (IT, season 3-4), Barbara Pitotti (IT season 5)

Powers/Abilities: Hex blasts which can cause bad luck or general destruction, acrobatic and martial-arts skills

"I'm bad luck. Good was never an option for me."
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jinx_teen_titans_3867.jpg

Field leader of the HIVE. A minor Reality Warper who only creates bad luck.


  • Adaptational Dye-Job: In the comics, Jinx is completely bald. Here, she sports a full head of pink hair.
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: Jinx has the ability of manipulating probability instead of magically commanding various natural elements and magical/mystical energy just like her comic book counterpart.
  • Affably Evil: Yes, she's a professional villainess but she can also be so friendly that she eventually does a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Airplane Arms: Her preferred way of running, when she's not cartwheeling everywhere is to spread her arms wide.
  • Ambition Is Evil: Subverted. The only member of the HIVE Five who has any ambition, and it's part of what triggers her Heel–Face Turn. She wanted to eventually be on Madame Rouge's level and couldn't stand working with lazy villains.
  • Animal Eyes: She has cat-like eyes.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: Debated and deconstructed when she met Kid Flash. When you are walking bad luck, it's a lot easier to be a villain than a hero because others will think you're a villain anyway.
  • Bad Powers, Good People: Post Heel–Face Turn it turns out that "good luck" is an option after all.
  • Battle Couple: With Kid Flash, her boyfriend and fellow superhero.
  • Blush Sticker: She has pink spots on her cheeks.
  • Broken Pedestal: Madame Rouge; after meeting her in person during "Lightspeed", she decides she's not worth idolizing. That plus Kid Flash's overtures equals Heel–Face Turn.
  • Characterization Marches On: In the beginning, she wasn't shown to be that different from Gizmo and Mammoth. "Lightspeed" is when she really shows her distinction as being more passionate and ambitious.
  • Composite Character: A very unusual case.
    • The basis of her powers comes from an obscure Dial H for Hero villain named Jinx (who is male)
    • Her gender and role in opposing the Titans come from the more well-known villain sorceress named Jinx.
    • She also shares the general themes and character arc of the Titans ally/Flash rogue Magenta (Frances Kane), in that she has unusual hair, pink aura, and is considered cursed, but is helped by Kid Flash.
    • Finally, she takes Raven's role as Kid Flash's love interest.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Thanks to her Redemption Promotion, delivers one to both her old team and Madame Rouge in the finale.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Her hair and her eyes are both pink.
  • Cute Bruiser: Slender and acrobatic, but she still hits pretty hard.
  • Cute Witch: She's a pretty young girl with magic powers.
  • Dark Action Girl: On the H.I.V.E., she is the only female member and embodies the girly qualities such as compassion the most.
  • Dating Catwoman: She's had relationships with heroes such as Kid Flash, who becomes her boyfriend, and Cyborg when he was a H.I.V.E. Academy student.
  • Defecting for Love: Becomes a heroine because of Kid Flash.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Madame Rouge should not have slapped Jinx around; it's part of the reason she pulled a Heel–Face Turn, as well as basically telling Madame Rouge to screw herself;
    Jinx: "I don't care who you are, nobody messes with me!"
  • Dude Magnet: Three guys have been attracted to her over the course of the show (Cyborg, See-More and Kid Flash).
  • Evil Counterpart: To Raven; both use dark magic, both have issues with their abilities, but where Raven (mostly) keeps them under control, Jinx seems to think that she's supposed to be as 'bad' as her powers are.
  • Expy: Of Scarlet Witch, whose powers hers are nearly identical to.
  • Goth: She has the fashion style and depressive outlook down.
  • Goth Girls Know Magic: Jinx has the general style of goth (dresses in black and purples, very pale, etc.) and a gloomy outlook on life, and can use magical hexes that cause bad luck.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Lampshaded when she mockingly asks Kid Flash if he is trying to convert her and make her see the error of her ways. That's exactly what happens.
  • High-Heel–Face Turn: The sole female of the HIVE Five group ends up joining the Titans in the end.
  • Horned Hairdo: Her hair is shaped like a pair of horns. It has a demonic look to it.
  • In Name Only: Aside from her name and being on the Fearsome Five (who are called the HIVE Five in this cartoon), she has no resemblance to her comic counterpart whatsoever.
  • The Jinx: Has the superpower of making things go wrong; in other words she has weaponized this trope.
  • Known Only by Their Nickname: Her real name is never revealed.
  • Love Redeems: Hooking up with Kid Flash turned her into a superheroine.
  • Mysterious Past: As with majority of the characters in this series, nothing is revealed about her background and the origin of her powers (along with how she received them in the first place).
  • Nerd Nanny: She has to put up with evil prodigy Gizmo, and the snack-happy Mammoth.
  • Nice Girl: Post High-Heel–Face Turn in the Titans Go! comics.
  • Official Couple: Eventually becomes Kid Flash's girlfriend.
  • Only Sane Woman: In the Hive Five. It's part of what drives her to perform a Heel–Face Turn because she can't stand them anymore.
  • Perky Goth: She has a goth-like appearance, but has a rather warm personality.
  • Race Lift: She was Indian in the original comics although it's impossible to tell what her race is here since it's never revealed if her chalk white face, shoulders, and hands is due to heavy makeup, is some side effect of her powers, or if that's just her natural skin color.
  • Redemption Promotion: Goes from being a standard recurring villain to effortlessly beating her old team, and repeatedly being the only one to seriously damage Madame Rouge.
  • She-Fu: She often does backflips when she fights.
  • Slasher Smile: In her early appearances when she was in full "evil bad luck witch!" mode.
  • Swiss-Army Superpower: Her "luck-based powers" seem to be able to allow her to do anything she wants.
  • Token Wizard: Jinx is often referred to as a "sorceress", implying that her powers of probability are magical in origin. This makes her the only member of the Hive with explicitly magical abilities.
  • Winds of Destiny, Change!: Jinx's powers allow her to manipulate luck.
  • Woman Scorned: In the tie-in comic, she's not happy to see her boyfriend Kid Flash flirt with other girls and she makes sure he knows it.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Pink in this case.

    Gizmo 

Gizmo

Voiced by: Lauren Tom (English, most appearances), Tara Strong (English, "Revved Up" and "Titans Together"), Toko Aoyama (Japanese), Ricardo Sorondo (Latin American Spanish), Corrado Conforti (IT, season 1-2), Daniele Raffaelli (IT, season 3-4), Rachele Paioelli (IT, season 5)

Powers/Abilities: Gadgeteer Genius, plus a suit that contains his latest weapons and gadgets.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gizmo_teen_titans_582.jpg

The HIVE's resident genius, at least as smart as Cyborg but with a thoroughly unlikable personality.


  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Considering he went from a bald adult dwarf to a short boy.
  • Age Lift: Gizmo was originally a diminutive adult rather than a young boy. Though a Ret-Canon later established this Gizmo was the son of the original Gizmo.
  • Bald of Evil: He doesn't have any hair on his head which is a resemblance to his good counterpart, Cyborg.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: He's a tiny kid who's also rather ill-behaved.
  • Canon Immigrant: This incarnation of Gizmo was later imported to the comics as the son of the original Gizmo. This makes him Gizmo II.
  • Child Prodigy: In spite of his age, he's able to invent all sorts of devices.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Cyborg in practice and Beast Boy in personality. Like Cyborg, he uses technology to fight his enemies, while he's an immature jokester like Beast Boy.
  • Evil Genius: The smartest member of the H.I.V.E. Five.
  • For Science!: He'll stop at nothing to see what fiendish things he can do with the technology he steals from Cyborg.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: His most common inventions include a set of spider-like legs and a game controller he uses to take control of machines.
  • Gosh Dang It to Heck!: Gizmo's a master at this. He swears a mile a minute, but it's all childish swears. For example, he loves calling his opponents "barf brain" or "crud-muncher", accuses things he doesn't like of being "snot", and at one point he even swears, "What the hairball?!" He uses this pseudo-swearing so often in his lines that he successfully gives off the same foul-mouthed impression that he'd give off if he were swearing for real.
  • Insufferable Genius: Gizmo is very smart and won't hesitate to insult those who fail to understand the things he does.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: His eyes are completely white with no pupils.
  • Mysterious Past: As with the other members of the H.I.V.E. Five and the other villains of the series, we never learn anything about his early life.
  • Not Me This Time: Raven and Starfire come across him coming out of a convenience store, and panics when he sees them, shouting that he had done anything wrong... today.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Of the Unusual Euphemism variety. There's a ton of them.
  • Spider Limbs: He has mechanical spider-like limbs that can emerge from his backpack.
  • Unusual Euphemism: Technically Gizmo swears quite a great deal for his age; it's just that his swearing tends to be words like "snot" or "crud".
  • Younger and Hipper: This Gizmo is a Child Prodigy as opposed to an adult Dwarf like in the comics. He would end up in the comics as the son of the latter, the original Gizmo.

    Mammoth 

Mammoth

Voiced by: Kevin Michael Richardson (English), Keikou Sakai (Japanese), Guillermo Marínez (Latin American Spanish, Season 1), Jesús Rondón (Latin American Spanish, Season 3-5)

Powers/Abilities: Super strength

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/baran_teen_titans_290.jpg

The HIVE's muscle.


  • Adaptational Intelligence: Not by much, but he actually was even stupider in the comic, while this incarnation, despite still being dumb, at least is smart enough to speak like a normal person.
  • Adaptational Nationality: Judging by his accent, he's most likely not Australian like his comics counterpart.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a small beard that makes him look a little like his villain code name.
  • Big Eater: In the first episode featuring him, he cleans out the Titans' entire fridge! Even the blue furry stuff.
  • The Brute: He serves as the H.I.V.E. trio's muscle.
  • Dumb Muscle: He's incredibly strong, but also stupid.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Cyborg (Big guy who's a Big Eater) and Beast Boy (The team's muscle).
  • Extreme Omnivore: He has demonstrated a willingness to eat anything, even the Titans' "blue, furry food".
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Like Gizmo, he also has blank, white, pupil-less eyes.
  • Mysterious Past: His origin and early life are unknown.
  • Super Strength: He is strong enough to overpower Cyborg.
  • Villain Has a Point: Like any other villain, Mammoth trash-talks heroes, but, just one of those times, he's actually right in one of his critiques. When Kid Flash was messing with the Hive FIVE in "Lightspeed", one of Kid Flash's tricks was to take a candy bar from Mammoth as he passed him... but Mammoth shouts that he actually paid for the candy bar!

    Billy Numerous 

Billy Numerous

Voiced by: Jason Marsden (English), Fumitoshi Miyajima (Japanese), Héctor Indriago (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: creates copies of himself, including whatever he's holding.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/billy_numerous.jpg
A metahuman criminal who can create copies of himself. Joins the HIVE Five in their second appearance.
  • Affably Evil: He's more of a thrill-seeking thief than an all-out villain. Also, he's not above complimenting the Titans when they create duplicates of themselves.
  • Canon Immigrant: Created for the cartoon, he made his comics debut fighting Catwoman in 2008.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: Double Subversion; normally, all his duplicates are each as strong as the original (which admittedly seems to be average), and work together for tremendous effect. However, if he makes too many, they do start to get weaker, and if he makes even more than that he'll eventually suffer Power Incontinence that makes all his duplicates disappear.
  • Corrupted Character Copy: Of Multiple Man from Marvel Comics X-Men.
    • Expy: He also resembles a teenage version of Firestorm villain Multiplex.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: His modus operandi, considering his duplication powers.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Like the other HIVE Five members below, he appears in the crowd shots of “Deception” before becoming a minor villain.
  • Genius Ditz: Is a very redneck villain, but is capable of fighting well.
  • Me's a Crowd: He can create a ridiculous amount of duplicates at once (at least several hundred), which can work together to do thing like stealing an entire bridge.
  • Mysterious Past: Nothing is known about Billy Numerous' origin or early life. However, his accent suggests he was born or raised somewhere in the Southern United States.
  • Self-Duplication: His entire gimmick, and in his hands it's a surprisingly dangerous one (he even manages to give Kid Flash a tough fight with it).
  • Talking to Themself: His duplicates converse with each other constantly, even getting into fights with himself a few times. He'll even make duplicates simply to repeat what he's saying.
  • Zerg Rush: By virtue of his many clones, he can dogpile someone to defeat them.

    Private HIVE 

Private HIVE

Voiced by: Greg Cipes (English), Guillermo Martínez (Latin American Spanish, Season 4), Ledner Belisario (Latin American Spanish, Season 5)

Powers/Abilities: Badass Normal

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/private_hive.jpg

A militaristic HIVE member with no superhuman powers, yet is a formidable hand-to-hand combatant and is armed with a shield he uses with dangerous skill.


  • Ascended Extra: Though a minor character in the series itself, he got his own character arc in the comic series that was based off the cartoon.
  • Canon Foreigner: Another villain created exclusively for the show.
  • Corrupted Character Copy: If it wasn't already obvious with him being being a shield-wielding Badass Normal whose name includes a military ranking, he's basically what Captain America would be if his devotion was for an Academy of Evil instead of his country, right down to his codename partially being a military rank. He also bears some resemblance to an obscure DC Comics hero called the Guardian because of using a shield as his weapon and wearing a costume accented with yellow.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He makes a background appearance in "Deception" before he is properly introduced as one of the H.I.V.E. Five.
  • Mysterious Past: Nothing is revealed about his origins and background.
  • Shield Bash: He uses his shield as a weapon.
  • Southern-Fried Private: He speaks in a Southern accent.
  • Spanner in the Works: In "Titans Together", Beast Boy's original plan was for Jericho to possess Cinderblock and then have Cinderblock escort the Titans as "prisoners". The possession part worked, which is how they found out the Brotherhood of Evil's base was in Paris... but Private HIVE messes up the "escort inside the base" part when he praises Cinderblock for making a nice catch, causing Jericho-as-Cinderblock to say "Thanks" and thus cause Private HIVE to realize something is wrong since normally, Cinderblock can't talk.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: He often fights by throwing his shield.

    Steamroller 

Steamroller

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/steamroller.png

A cybernetic villain who attacked a steel mill and was defeated by Titans East.


  • Canon Foreigner: Created for the show.
  • Cyborg: Part human and part robotic steamroller.
  • Mind-Control Eyes: They glow red once Brother Blood takes control of him.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: While he's quickly defeated by the Titans East, he succeeds in using a probe on Cyborg to transfer security codes for their tower to Brother Blood.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to fight all the Titans East; his body can also withstand molten metal.
  • The Voiceless: Never speaks, but he does growl when Brother Blood chains him up.

Wrestling Star

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wrestling_star.jpg


  • Canon Foreigner: Created for the show.
  • Masked Luchador: A bad guy one.
  • No Name Given: He's never named on screen, nor mentioned in any credits. "Wrestling Star" has been bestowed on him by the fandom.
  • Super Strength: Strong enough to fight Pantha.
  • The Unmasking: Pantha does this to him once she wins their fight.
    • The Unreveal: We never see how his face actually looks like in the show. After Pantha removes his mask, he's quickly whisked away and frozen with the other defeated villains, with his hands still covering his face.

The Brotherhood of Evil

    As a whole 

  • Arch-Enemy: To the Doom Patrol, who has been fighting them for a long time pre-series.
  • Awakening the Sleeping Giant: Well, technically they always were evil, but when first introduced, they were only fighting the Doom Patrol. After the Titans came to the Patrol's rescue and foiled his last plan, the Brain decides to focus his effort on the Titans and all other young heroes.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: After Trigon, a literal demon who sought after the end of the world, the Brotherhood of Evil are a group, much like the previous Brother Blood, but are heavily implied to be much older with more experience, with much of its membership being adults, and the Brotherhood being more fond of playing the long game than Brother Blood, whose grudge against Cyborg resulted in his downfall.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Despite some of them having rather silly concepts (a literal Brain in a Jar, a super-intelligent ape), they are played real serious, especially Madame Rouge.
  • Putting on the Reich: Their Mecha-Mooks look blatantly like SS troopers (including Stahlhelms, red armbands, and laser MP 40s), and one of their lairs has a large red-and-black banner with the initials "B.E." drawn to look like Germanic runes. This despite one of them being French and another being Russian.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Played with; in the comic, they are best-known as the main villains of the Doom Patrol, but occasionally clash with other DC heroes, the Titans included. Here, they are introduced as being the Doom Patrol's long-time opponents, but decide to turn their attention toward the Titans after they came to the Patrol's rescue. Furthermore, Beast Boy was part of the Doom Patrol before joining the Teen Titans so they are still his rogues.
  • Team Member in the Adaptation: While the cartoon version does include the Brain, Mallah, Rogue, Immortus, Phobia, Plasmus, and Warp, many of its line-up in the cartoon weren't members in the comics. How much? Slade, Brother Blood, Trigon, Blackfire, the Cironielian Chrysalis Eater, Glgrdsklechhh, Krall, and the Trouble in Tokyo crew are the only people listed on this page who weren't part of the expanded line-up.
  • Villain Team-Up: They are responsible for the biggest one in the whole series, assembling nearly all the villains introduced in the show, including several one-shot villains.

    The Brain 

The Brain

Voiced by: Glenn Shadix (English), Luis Miguel Pérez (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Chessmaster and Gadgeteer Genius.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/brain_tt_8288.jpg

Leader of the Brotherhood, Big Bad of season five. A disembodied brain.


  • Adaptational Villainy: He was never a nice guy, but his comic counterpart had the redeeming quality of his relationship with Monsieur Mallah, whom he genuinely loved. Here, even that is excised and the Brain just becomes pure evil.
  • Arc Villain: He is the central villain and mastermind behind Season Five's story arc.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Mento. Beast Boy also comes to consider him an Arch-Enemy across the course of season five, but it's one sided- Brain has no respect for him whatsoever, and seems only marginally aware of who he is. This came back to bite him in the ass in the final battle when Beast Boy leads the recovery charge against him and deals the final blow that defeats him.
  • Big Bad: Of Season Five, as the leader of the Brotherhood of Evil.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: He never finishes off his enemies when he has the chance. This is best demonstrated when his villains ambush the Titans and he has them taken alive and subjected to Harmless Freezing as opposed to just killing them.
  • Brain in a Jar: As his name suggests, he's a disembodied brain inside some kind of tank.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He puts the word "evil" in his organization's name!
  • The Chessmaster: Carefully plots out every move of his war against the Titans, and is shown to enjoy literal chess as well.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His first meeting with the Titans consists heavily of snark.
    OH LOOK. THE LITTLE GREEN ONE. HOW NICE—A FAMILY REUNION.
  • Diabolical Mastermind: He's the head of one of the most infamous criminal organizations in the world.
  • Evil Genius: According to Mento, he's "intellect personified and evil incarnate".
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: He's a Brain in a Jar.
  • Failed a Spot Check: This trope is what eventually causes his plans to unravel. He coordinates a humongous assault against the Titans, Titans East, and Honorary Titans, choosing a supervillain or two to take on each hero. Only some of the supervillains he chooses succeed in beating the heroes they're matched against. Beast Boy manages to beat the Kardiak Monster as well as Brain's robot drones, Pantha beats both Atlas and Adonis, Jericho beats both Fang and Private HIVE, Herald beats both See-More and Warp, and Mas manages to escape Cinderblock and Johnny Rancid because they only noticed Menos in the rubble of their attack. Furthermore, Cyborg recovers from the hole Mammoth knocked him into, Billy Numerous and Gizmo never manage to capture Kole or Gnarrk, Brain failed to send anyone after Red Star, Raven manages to escape Psimon's portal that Kyd Wykkyd knocked her into, Starfire manages to get away from Kitten and Killer Moth, and Bumblebee manages to recover from Angel and Punk Rocket knocking her out of the sky. Needless to say all of these people show up to screw Brain over and unfreeze the heroes he did manage to capture, which Brain would have seen coming if he had bothered to keep as careful track of his villains as he did of the heroes.
  • Fatal Flaw: It never occurs to him that any of his plans could ever fail because he's too convinced of his own genius, so if any do, he's caught off-guard and without a backup plan, forcing him to improvise, which he's not very good at doing.
  • Machine Monotone: Being a literal brain, his machine pedestal talks for him. It's based on Stephen Hawking, no less.
  • Mad Scientist: Spends his first appearance designing a black hole based weapon. Later appearances focus more on him as a Chessmaster.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: For reasons that should be obvious, he has Monsieur Mallah do his fighting for him.
  • Obviously Evil: It's in his organization's name, for crying out loud.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The eyes on his life-support pod glow red when he's accessing his technology, and when he just wants to be intimidating.
  • Shout-Out: The lower half of his life-support machine is, per Word of God, based on a Dalek casing.

    Monsieur Mallah 

Monsieur Mallah

Voiced by: Glenn Shadix

Powers/Abilities: Genius level intellect, superstrength, skill with many weapons.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mallah_tt_1060.jpg

The Brain's Dragon. An intelligent gorilla with a French accent.


  • The Dragon: He is the Brain's most direct henchmen, sometimes carrying him around, and because Brain is... a brain, Mallah does all his fighting for him.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He seems to make most of the stuff Brain designs.
  • Genius Bruiser: A gorilla with his species' level of strength and durability, while being probably the second most intelligent member of the group right after the Brain.
  • Intellectual Animal: Like the Brain, he is very intelligent and has the same pursuits as his master.
  • Maniac Monkeys: A gorilla Evil Genius who serves as the Brain's Dragon.
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: He's a super intelligent gorilla. Unfortunately for him he has a knack for getting into fights with characters who much stronger than he is and kicking his ass. This best demonstrated when gets the better of Beast Boy after he turned into a gorilla to fight him, brags about being smarter while matching Beast Boy's strength, only for to turn into a Triceratops and knock him through a wall.
  • Promoted to Love Interest: Inverted; he was in a relationship with the Brain in the comic, but said relationship was Adapted Out (or at least never mentioned) in the cartoon for obvious reasons.
  • Talking Animal: He's a gorilla that can speak. The first episode he appears in plays with this notion by having him not speak for most of the episode, only to talk at the very end in a surprising moment.

    Madame Rouge 

Madame Rouge

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rogue_madame_512.jpg

Voiced by: Hynden Walch (English), Valeria Castillo (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Voluntary Shapeshifting into anything she can imagine, ability to mimic voices, indestructibility

The Brotherhood's enforcer. An incredibly powerful shapechanger with a Russian accent.


  • Adaptational Badass: Comic book Madame Rouge was no slouch, but this incarnation basically is the show's equivalent of the T-1000 when it comes to powers and badassery.
  • Adaptational Nationality: She was French in the comic, but is depicted with a Russian/Slavic accent in this version. Averted for the Latin American dub, where she keeps the French accent.
  • The Baroness: She is attractive, competent, and very sadistic.
  • Broken Pedestal: For Jinx, who admired her until she was burned by her.
  • The Brute: She's clever, but relies on force more than any other member of the Brotherhood.
  • Child Hater: She hates children and thinks they are "useless."
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Handles most of the Titans quite easily, even the One-Man Army that is Kid Flash. In the final battle Jinx turns it around on her, trashing her easily.
  • Dark Action Girl: A formidable fighter who is also part of a villain team.
  • The Dreaded: Most Titans' reaction to her showing up is to run the heck away if they don't have any ally for back-up. This is for good reasons.
  • Genius Bruiser: Not a genius on the same level than Monsieur Mallah or the Brain, but she is still dangerously clever and cunning, and very creative in the use of her power.
  • Hero Killer: While she doesn't technically kill anyone onscreen, she has a spectacular record of hunting down and successfully capturing members of the Titans. Most of them tend to run away when she shows up, aware they will most likely be unable to do more than slow her down.
  • Husky Russkie: Despite retaining her French name from the comic, she has a Russian accent and motif.
  • Implacable Woman: You're not getting away from her easily. Not even unmatchable speed is guaranteed to save you.
  • Jerkass: Is an utter asshole to Jinx, who idolizes her. This ends up driving Jinx to join the Titans and later defeat her.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: In the final battle, Hotspot, Wildebeest and Jinx, three of the people she was showed directly harassing through the season, band together to pay her back for the grief by launching her into the freezing machine.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Besides being Nigh Invulnerable, she can catch Kid Flash and knock him through concrete.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Her shapeshifting allows her to practically heal from anything. She survived being literally blown up by Robin.
  • Psycho for Hire: She's only in on the plan so she can harm a lot of people.
  • Rubber Woman: Her main power is being able to stretch her body.
  • Super Speed: She can stretch fast enough to match Kid Flash's speed.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: Averted spectacularly in the finale, where she gets tackled or attacked by someone each time she begins a monologue.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: She can use her power to assume the appearance of someone else.

    General Immortus 

General Immortus

Voiced by: Xander Berkeley (English), Framk Maneiro (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Immortality, genius-level intellect.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/immortus_1113.jpg

The Brotherhood's strategist. An immortal military genius. Seldom speaks.


  • Age Without Youth: He looks like a withered husk because he's older than dirt.
  • The Cameo: He appears in Teen Titans Go! as The Faceless in a corner of the Markov's backstory related by Geo-Force, with the direct implication that he was involved with or even in charge of giving Brion and Tara their earth powers.
  • Immortality: It's in his name. Although it's unclear what kind of immortality he has, it's implied to be Complete Immortality.
  • Informed Ability: He is described as ultimate military genius with unparalleled experience who had fought in countless wars over the centuries (Sun Tzu was purportedly his student). However, over the course of the series, he never displays any above-average tactical intellect (on the contrary) and his troops primarily rely on overwhelming the heroes with their sheer numbers.
  • Living Forever Is Awesome: You don't see him complaining about seeing the same basic battles over and over again. He's Seen It All and thus has a leg up on every other strategist alive. He says it himself:
    The Brain: Persistent, aren't they?
    Immortus: Persistent, yes. But not immortal.
  • Putting on the Reich: His uniform resembles a Nazi's, but he predates them by a long shot. It's probably to underscore his villainy.
  • Really 700 Years Old: More like really thousands of years old, if his flashback montage is accurate. He refers to Sun Tzu as one of his best students, so that seals the deal.
  • The Strategist: He comes up with the battle strategies for the Brotherhood of Evil.

Secondary Antagonists

    Cinderblock, Plasmus, and Overload 

Cinderblock, Plasmus, and Overload

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker (English, all three), James Arnold Taylor (Overload, English, first appearance), Kenichi Mochizuki (Cinderblock, Japanese), Tsuguo Mogami (Overload, Japanese) Guillermo Martínez (, Cinderblock, Latin American Spanish), Rolman Bastidas, (Plasmus, Latin American Spanish), Juan Guzmán (Overload, Latin American Spanish)

Cinderblock
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/plasmus_hd.jpg
Plasmus
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/overload_2.png
Overload

Three supervillains who frequently work for Slade or other supervillains, providing the muscle for whatever schemes their bosses currently have in the works.


  • Adaptational Heroism: In the comics, Otto von Furth, the man who is Plasmus, is fully in control of his powers and is a murderous sociopath (a sign of this is his being envious of Chemo in Infinite Crisis after Warp warns Madame Rouge's daughter, Gemini, that Chemo could melt her faster than Plasums). In the show, he's not in control of his powers and fears what happens when he's awake and on the loose.
  • Blob Monster: Plasmus is a large monster made out of purple ooze.
  • The Brute: The three of them are powerhouses among the Titans' rogues gallery, and are recruited to become Slade's top minions in "Aftershock".
  • Canon Foreigner: Overload was created for the show and doesn't appear in the comics.
  • Canon Immigrant: Like Overload, Cinderblock is a creation of the show, but he did later appear in the comics.
  • Co-Dragons: For Slade they function, at the very least, as Co-Brutes, with whomever Slade's newest apprentice is being the actual Dragon.
  • Energy Being: Overload is a computer chip with a body made of electricity.
  • Fusion Dance: All three of them can combine into one being called Ternion.
  • Mysterious Past: Nothing is revealed about their backstories and origins.
  • The Quiet One: Overload spoke in his first appearance, but not in any subsequent ones.
  • Starter Villain: Production-wise Divide and Conquer is the first episode of the series, with Cinderblock being the first villain the Titans fight onscreen.
  • Tragic Monster: Plasmus's human form. From his only speaking appearance he seems like a regular guy, horrified of being awake because he knows people will get hurt when that happens.
  • The Unintelligible: Cinderblock is able to make sounds, but it seems he's too dense to communicate intelligibly. When Jericho possesses Cinderblock, making Cinderblock speak is the first thing that blows his cover in front of the other villains.

    The Amazing Mumbo 

The Amazing Mumbo

Voiced by: Tom Kenny (English), Katsuya Shiga (Japanese) Renzo Jiménez (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Magic wand and hat allow for a variety of mystical affects.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0b492f59b959eae863672eccd3091493.jpg

A mad magician with real magical powers. Usually a nuisance, but can prove a real threat when properly motivated.


  • Achilles' Heel: If his wand is snapped, he's rendered powerless (though he acquired a new one at some point — presumably from wherever he got the first one).
  • Baleful Polymorph: In "Bunny Raven", he turns all the Titans into animals except for Beast Boy, who gets turned into a lamp instead and has his ability to turn into animals replaced with one to turn into inanimate objects.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Laughably Evil he may be, but an Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain he is not, as in his first appearance he faced the entire team of Titans and won.
  • Canon Foreigner: He was created for the series.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: He acts a lot like a Silver Age version of The Joker, only focused on showmanship instead of comedy.
  • Domain Holder: Believe it or not; he's the absolute ruler of a tiny dimension that exists inside his hat, which is the main setting of "Bunny Raven".
  • Egopolis: Mumbo's pocket dimension inside of his Nice Hat is basically an entire world dedicated to pampering Mumbo's ego. The cityscape itself revolves around Mumbo's personal lair, a theater in which Mumbo is the only act and which the dimension's inhabitants live to watch. Signs boasting about Mumbo's amazing shows are all over the city. And aside from a handful of exceptions, such as living playing cards and gloves, most of the dimension's inhabitants are Muppet-like caricatures of Mumbo himself, complete with an expy of not only Kermit the Frog, but also Waldorf and Statler.
  • Evil Sorcerer: He's a villain with magic powers.
  • Expy: Besides the Silver Age Joker, he appears to be a blue Horatio J. HooDoo. Makes sense, as Tom Kenny has played a HooDoo expy before. He is also rather similar to The Flash villain Abra Kadabra, even sharing a similar naming theme of being named after old-school "magic words", although Mumbo uses actual magic whilst Abra Kadabra uses Sufficiently Advanced Technology.
  • I Have No Idea What I'm Doing: Says this word for word to Starfire when he's about to pull the saw-them-in-half trick.
  • Large Ham: Whatever else he may be, Mumbo's a consummate showman who revels in his role.
  • Laughably Evil: His efforts at being evil mostly boil down to using his magic to steal lots of money and put on elaborate shows whilst doing so.
  • Loophole Abuse: He couldn't trap Beast Boy in the form of an animal, due to him already being capable of shapeshifting into animals. So he instead turned Beast Boy into a lamp, cursing him to only be able to shapeshift into various inanimate technological objects instead.
  • Magicians Are Wizards: Dresses like a stage magician, and refers to himself as a magician, but has real magic powers.
  • Nice Hat: Wouldn't be Mumbo without a nice hat. His has a pocket dimension in it.
  • Practically Joker: He's based heavily on the Silver Age incarnation of the Joker, being sillier and campier than the usual Monster Clown he's known as. His appearance also borrows heavily from him: he wears a tux (albeit one of its actual color), his skin is an inhuman color (blue instead of white), the long nose many incarnations are known for, and a similar hairstyle.
  • Reality Warper: Fairly low-level in the "real" world — in the world inside his hat, he's practically a Physical God.
  • Stage Magician: Mumbo's entire criminal identity is centered around this archetype; he dresses in the iconic black tailed tuxedo and top hat with a domino mask of an old-school stage magician, and he frames his crimes as performances of stage magic, with his victims as an unwilling audience.
  • Unholy Matrimony: With Mother May-Eye in New Teen Titans.
  • Villain Song:
    • "Master Of Your Fate"
    • In New Teen Titans, he gets another called "Mayhem at First Sight".
    • Interestingly enough, he's the only villain in the show to get one. In New Teen Titans Slade lampshades this by complaining he never gets a song.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: According to Word of God, their planned background for Mumbo is that he's a former stage magician who accidentally stumbled across a real magic wand. This gave him the ability to use actual magic and twist reality to his whims, but the power turned him into Mumbo, driving him mad in the process. This is hinted at in the show proper, where one episode has the Titans break his wand and revert him to a more normal-looking appearance that is apparently powerless, but never fully stated.

    Dr. Light 

Dr. Light

Voiced by: Rodger Bumpass (English), Luis Lugo (Latin American Spanish, Seasons 1 and 4), Guillermo García (Latin American Spanish, Season 5)

Powers/Abilities: Holograms, force-fields, lasers... if it involves manipulating light, he can do it.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/f3543cce1035b89c8d1acb0b701afbb2.jpg
"No one defeats Dr. Light! NO ONE!"

A mad scientist and would-be supervillain. Has great skill, but a crippling lack of common sense.


  • Adaptational Nice Guy: He seems less willing to murder his enemies in the cartoon, and he's not a rapist.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: His technology is quite powerful, and every so often he'll use it effectively, only to be shortly thereafter undone by his own ineptitude.
  • Break the Haughty: He's competent at first, until Raven finds his weakness, and leaves him in shock.
  • Butt-Monkey: He's never the primary villain; he just makes appearance as a C-lister and is traumatized by Raven.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He'll do a hell lot of boasting about how much of an Evil Genius he is.
  • Dark Is Evil: If his costume being mostly black counts.
  • Deadpan Snarker: "A bit of advice: find shorter magic words."
  • Didn't Think This Through: He makes a flashy attack on an oil rig that the Titans can see from their living room. This led to him getting his ass handed to him (again). He may be a Gadgeteer Genius with very powerful tech, but as Robin points out, when it comes to tactics he's just not very bright.
  • Ditzy Genius: He's great at creating gadgets, but he's not very bright when it comes to planning.
  • Determinator: Raven striking fear into his heart didn't stop him from creating more Evil Plans.
  • Evil Gloating: He enjoys taunting his foes over his evil deeds and brilliance.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Just listen to this guy.
  • Evil Is Petty: He's prone to mocking his opponents while fighting them.
  • Harmless Villain: His threat level is considerably lower than other villains.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Ultimately, he's so pathetic as a villain that you just can't help but feel kind of bad for him.
  • Insufferable Genius: He regularly boasts about his intellect whenever he faces the heroes.
  • Know When to Fold 'Em: When Raven confronts him after traumatizing him in their last confrontation, he tells the Titans that he is surrendering immediately.
    Raven: Remember me?
    Dr. Light: [to the other Titans] I'd like to go to jail now, please.
  • Laughably Evil: He's prone to Trash Talk during a fight, only to get struck in fear by the opponent he just mocked, and it makes him look funny.
  • Light 'em Up: Dr. Light has a lot of light based weapons.
  • Light Is Not Good: As his Meaningful Name suggests, he uses technology to control and manipulate light...which he does for the purpose of robbing banks and general villainy.
  • Mad Scientist: He made all those light based weapons and is hammy in their use.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Proved that he wasn't so harmless in "Kole". Even in his first appearance, he held his own against the Titans, but didn't count on Raven's demonic powers.
  • Pungeon Master: He tends to make puns revolving around the word "light", especially in his first appearance on the series.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: He considers himself the strongest and most brilliant supervillain in town, when he's humiliated every time he faces the Titans.
  • Smug Snake: He's pretty overconfident, until his fear of Raven's powers gave him one big humiliation.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In "Kole"; he singlehandedly fends off the entire Titans team and Gnaark for most of the episode, and even proves he's gotten over his terror of Raven.
  • Trash Talk: Always talks some to his enemies right before getting a humiliating lesson from it. For instance,
    Dr.Light: What's the matter? Afraid of the light?
    Demonic Raven: What's the matter? Afraid of the Dark?

Control Freak

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bda92ed0ddd49d3769e668b395c50416.jpg

A geekish villain wannabe who is obsessed with TV, video games and everything else geek culture-related.


  • Acrofatic: He's quite skilled with martial arts despite that couch potato physique he's got going on.
  • Arch-Enemy: Sees his relationship with the Titans as this. However, he's the only one to believe it.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Though a villainous version, it's quite obvious he's a big fanboy of the Teen Titans; the Titans East even lampshade it.
  • Awesome by Analysis: He attempts this in his third appearance, where he reveals he has passed his time in jail analyzing the Titans' powers, then developing exactly the weapons and gadget required to counter them. Unfortunately for him, he comes back right when they're absent fighting the Brotherhood of Evil, leaving to replace them the Titans East, whose powers and weaknesses don't match Control Freak's gadgets at all. He then takes some time to analyze the Titans East's weaknesses, and devises new challenges based around them.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: As revealed in Titans Go!, he used his reality warping powers to rewrite the Titans' entire universe.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: The guy has some serious tech, and even Cyborg acknowledges that. His remote even makes him a low-level Reality Warper. That the Titans don't take him seriously likely has nothing to do with his abilities and everything to do with his personality.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He believes himself to be the Titans' archenemy and tries hard to be one, but they barely acknowledge him as a villain. When leaving a list of all their enemies to the Titans East's attention, they don't even bother putting him on it (despite Puppet King, a one-shot villain, being listed).
  • Canon Foreigner: He was created for the series.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: He is possibly the funniest example of this: A fat Expy of an overly-obsessed fan-boy who's only motivation is being seen as the Titan's nemesis by the Titans themselves! He's rarely a threat because of this, but because of his reality-warping powers he'd probably be their most dangerous foe if he just got serious and had a firm goal in mind rather than just getting the Titan's attention.
  • Evil Is Petty: He once attacked a woman for not knowing a thing about a TV show that he enjoyed watching.
  • Evil Redhead: Starting to go bald, but what's there is red.
  • Fanboy: Of various TV shows and movies, that he takes quite seriously.
  • Fat Bastard: As part of his stereotypical nerd character, he is a jerkass with a lot of body fat.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He's smart enough to develop machines that grant him limited Reality Warper abilities and allow him to enter the realm of television.
  • Geek: He is fascinated with science fiction, collectible toys, etc.
  • Mysterious Past: Absolutely nothing is revealed about his backstory.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He's quite the competent Gadgeteer Genius who can turn out to be a real threat, as shown in his second appearance and during his second confrontation with the Titans East. This is especially the case in the Trapped in TV Land episode, where he's pretty much a Reality Warper with complete control over the dimension and utterly thrashes the Titans where he was previously incompetent. If GO is to be believed then he accomplished what no villain ever could and defeated the Titans, by canceling the series.
  • Translator Microbes: Uses it on Más and Menos to understand what they were saying.
  • Unknown Rival: In his introduction episode, he immediately addresses the Titans as his long-time nemeses... only for Beast Boy to turn around and ask the others who the hell he is.
  • Villainous Crush: He thinks Robin will never appreciate Starfire.

    Killer Moth 

Killer Moth

Voiced by: Thomas Haden Church (English, "Date with Destiny"), Marc Worden (English, "Can I Keep Him?"), Jiro Saito (Japanese), Frank Maneiro (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Flight, genetic engineering

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/09a6390b93620cc3fc6a22bcf5b41a72.jpg

A Mad Scientist who schemes to take over the city, who would likely succeed if he had a better gimmick and if he wasn't wrapped around the finger of his daughter. As is, they're comic-relief villains.


  • Adaptational Badass: This is the most threatening incarnation of Killer Moth throughout the various DC Universes and since he's still kind of bumbling, that's saying something.
  • Affably Evil: He seems to be very polite. He's also a good father to Kitten, and takes care of her while still about to create his Evil Plan. He also feeds his moths, and makes sure their health is good.
  • Ambiguously Human: It's not exactly clear if he's wearing a costume or he really is some kind of moth creature. If he is the latter, the fact that he has a human daughter could imply he used to be human himself.
  • Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking: In "Date with Destiny", he threatens to destroy the City unless the following three demands are met:
    "The city will declare me ruler, the Teen Titans will surrender and Robin... will take this lovely young lady to her junior prom."
  • Badass Boast: "Patience, my children. Soon, you shall wreck the havoc you cray. Soon, I shall have the power I deserve. Soon, the city shall bow down to its new master. Killer Moth! (Evil Laugh)".
  • Big Bad Wannabe: He tries to be a threatening villain, and mostly fails at it due to his unwillingness to discipline his daughter, and being overshadowed by her. Then again, this gets subverted, as it is shown that he is not one to underestimate. He has taken out the Teen Titans by himself, and was damn close at succeeding in his plan.
  • Composite Character: Whether it's a costume or not, his appearance and traits that are even the least more intimidating bring his other alter-ego Charaxes to mind.
  • Darth Vader Clone: Though it's unsure whether he's wearing a costume or if he really is a mutated moth, he's got lots of Vader-style quirks. He speaks in a deep, mysterious monotone, performing lots of Evil Gloating, is able to create an elaborate scheme, leads his own army, and has a desire to rule.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: For what it's worth, he cares about Kitten. He also seems to care about his moths, feeding them to make them stay in shape.
  • Evil Genius: He created both his army of moths, and his plan to rule the city, which would have succeeded, if not for a few incidents.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Definitely! He'll Badass Boast during his near-successful schemes.
  • Evil Plan: He formulates the plan to conquer the city with his army of mutant moths in "Date with Destiny", although Kitten intervenes with her desire for a date to the prom.
  • Macabre Moth Motif: He has the appearance of a moth, though it's debatable over whether or not it's a costume, and utilizes an army of mutant moths in his plan to take over the city.
  • Mad Scientist: He created his mutant moth army himself.
  • Moth Menace: He has many mutant moths as his henchbeasts.
  • No Ontological Inertia: His moths revert to larvae at the end of the episode, of their own accord.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: He was a Batman foe in the comics.
  • The Stoic: Tends to be the strong silent type.

    Kitten 

Kitten

Voiced by: Tara Strong (English), Yensi Rivero (Latin American Spanish, Season 2), Maythe Guedes (Latin American Spanish, Season 5)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/be441e768b478d4f85fa3b24227dffdb.png

The spoiled daughter of Killer Moth, who would be your perfectly typical Alpha Bitch if not for her active participation in her father's villainous schemes. However, she seems less interested in actually taking over the city and more in just getting whatever she wants.


  • Abhorrent Admirer: She seems to be set up as this in her debut episode, being the one to force her father to blackmail Robin into going as her date for the prom and actively trying to flirt with Robin. It's subverted, when it turns out she was just using him to make Fang jealous.
  • Alpha Bitch: She's a Spoiled Brat who always wants to get her way, has her father under her thumb, and is even blonde to boot.
  • Attention Whore: She yells out her conversation with one particular person just to get everyone else's attention.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: She's introduced as throwing a tantrum towards her father about the terrible ordeal of having to go to the prom on her own after Fang dumping her, establishing her character and their relationship right off the bat.
  • Bullying a Dragon: She's a normal human being who attacks Starfire, a Tamaranean with super strength, the power of flight and starbolts, with no weapons on hand and does it again when Starfire ruins her dress. It can be safe to say that she was lucky Starfire didn't use any of these powers on her other than to shoot the moth trigger out of her hand.
  • Canon Foreigner: She was created for the series (mainly through the fact that Killer Moth does not have any children in the comics).
  • Cat Smile: She occasionally sports one (and at one point sprouts cat ears to match), which is fitting considering her name.
  • Costume Inertia: She wore a prom dress for a dance in her first appearance, but is still wearing it while fighting as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil.
  • Daddy's Little Villain: She doesn't surpass her father in ambition, but in conniving and jerkass-ness. This is a girl who came up with an elaborate scheme putting the entire city in danger of being eaten alive by giant bugs to get her boyfriend to take her back.
  • Expy: In the tie-in comics, she becomes one of Duela Dent by masquerading as the daughters of numerous villains.
  • Faux Affably Evil: In comparison to her father, who's much more Affably Evil, she is only pretending to be nice when everyone around her is paying attention to her.
  • Freudian Excuse: Go! shows that Kitten became more and more spoiled by demanding more and more from her father all because he never gave her the thing she truly wanted: time to spend with her as a father. She hilariously then says the Titans could never understand, as "All you goody-goody superhero types probably come from lovey-dovey, well-adjusted, perfectly normal families!" Cue looks of disbelief from the Titans.
  • Gag Lips: She gains these when she puckers up to kiss Robin. They resume their shape once Robin blocks her lips with his finger.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: If Killer Moth's appearance isn't solely from a costume, then Kitten would be this, though she doesn't look it in the slightest. Also, Fang has a Giant Spider for a head.
  • Interspecies Romance: If you don't count Trouble In Tokyo, she and Fang (though nobody can be completely sure on what either of them actually are) are the only characters in the show who kiss onscreen.
  • It's All About Me: In her debut episode, she doesn't care about her father's evil plans and only uses them because she wants a date for the prom.
  • Missing Mom: She seems to live only with her father, making the status of her mother ambiguous.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: If she hadn't insisted on taking Robin to the prom as her Captive Date, the Titans wouldn't have had time to find "Daddy" and his moths, thus stalling the destruction.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: She loves Fang to the point where she forces Robin to go to the prom with her to make him jealous enough to try and take her back. Fang has an entire giant spider for a head.
  • Operation: Jealousy: She forces Robin into taking her to the prom so that Fang will get jealous enough to intervene. He does and they kiss.
  • Outlaw Couple: She and Fang are seen together in a cameo driving in "Revved Up".
  • Pink Means Feminine: She wears a pale pink headband, and her prom dress is pink, and she has stereotypically girl concerns like a date to the prom.
  • Scarpia Ultimatum: She offers one to Robin in "Date with Destiny": Kiss her or the moths eat the city. Naturally, he refuses.
  • Spoiled Brat: She gets her father to give her whatever she wants, even if it means having to modify his Evil Plan to accommodate her Operation: Jealousy gambit to get Fang to take her back.
  • Took a Level in Badass:
    • She takes one in her brief appearance in "Calling All Titans"; she gets to control moths and fight with a laser whip like her father.
    • Takes an even bigger one in Go!, where she's developed physical combat skills to the point of holding her own against Robin (as "Pink X".)
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In her second-to-last appearance in the Go! comics, the Titans help her resolve some issues she has with Killer Moth. She seems grateful, and in her final appearance, she's shown to be a civilian contact to the Titans on their communicators, indicating she's pulled a Heel–Face Turn or at the very least respects them a little now.
  • Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: She looks like a moderately attractive, ordinary teenage girl, while Fang has a spider for a head.
  • The Ugly Guy's Hot Daughter: She looks nothing like her father, although it's possible her father is wearing a costume and could resemble her under it.
  • Villainous Crush: Subverted. She actively flirts with Robin when forcing him to go on a date with her to the prom and calls him "Robbie-poo", but it's only a ploy to make Fang jealous enough to take her back.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Her appearance in "Calling All Titans" is left on a cliffhanger note for Starfire... and it's never seen how that's resolved or where Kitten went. note 
  • Whip It Good: Wields a plasma whip in "Calling All Titans".

    Professor Chang 

Professor Chang

Voiced by: James Hong (English), Creator/Cho (Japanese), Armando Volcanes (Latin American Spanish)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chang.jpg

An old Chinese criminal scientist who lives on the outskirts of the city. When first seen, he appears to be a retired villain, but he soon reveals that his diabolical desires never truly went away.


  • Corrupted Character Copy: Chang is very obviously Hannibal Chew. He has the same outfit as Chew, he's played by James Hong, and he's a scientist who works on villains. The difference is Chang is evil and legitimately dangerous.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Professor Chang was responsible for several important events - the experiments on Red Star that gave him his powers, Robin becoming Red X and subsequently the rise of the new Red X, Brother Blood becoming a cyborg, and the construction of the Brotherhood of Evil's freezing machine they intended to use on all the young heroes.
  • Greed: His chief motivation for his scientific work is selling it off to the highest bidder.
  • Mad Scientist: Not as much mad in terms of insanity but in sheer amorality.
  • Retired Monster: He appears this way early into his debut in "X", but then subverts it by becoming the episode's real villain.
  • Tuckerization: He's named after episode director Michael Chang.

Other Antagonists

    Wintergreen 

Wintergreen

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wintergreen_5.png

Slade's loyal butler.


  • Adaptational Wimp: In the comics, Wintergreen was Slade Wilson's mentor and an expert combatant. In the show, he's nothing more than his butler and doesn't seem to have any fighting skills.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: He serves as Slade's butler in the first episode, but he never reappears afterwards, aside from a few background cameos in Season 5 and "The Lost Episode".
  • Demoted to Extra: In the comics, he was the Alfred to Deathstroke's Batman. Here, he only has a few visual cameos.
  • Personal Mook: To Slade. He serves him drinks and cleans up behind him.
  • The Voiceless: He never speaks onscreen.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/0f102d964d12942667615ce649245abe.png

An evil possessed marionette who tried to steal the Teen Titans' souls and enslave them.


  • Evil Laugh: He can be heard laughing evilly when Starfire wakes up and decides to investigate what is going on.
  • Expy: He is loosely based on the Puppeteer, a minor Green Lantern villain who once attempted to get the Teen Titans to kill each other by taking control of Kid Flash, Cyborg, Starfire, and Wonder Girl.
  • Flat Character: It is not explained how he came to be or why he wanted to control the Teen Titans' bodies as his personal army. He basically just seems to be carrying out this plan for the sake of it.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Considering that his episode was one of the earlier ones, it was quite surprising to see him trap the Titans' souls in his puppet replicas and plan to destroy their essences so that their bodies would be his to command forever.
  • Mysterious Past: Absolutely nothing is known about his backstory.
  • Perverse Puppet: He's a living marionette.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: He speaks in a soft monotone, which makes him all the more sinister.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He was rendered a lifeless puppet at the end of his first appearance, yet he returned in Season 5 as a member of the Brotherhood of Evil.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/trident_3.jpg


  • Adaptational Backstory Change/Adaptational Species Change: In the comics, Trident was three separate human criminals with no connection to Atlantis.
  • Adaptational Skimpiness: The Trident in the comics wore red-and-yellow costumes; this one wears nothing.
  • Atlantis: Where he's from.
  • Cloning Blues: Beast Boy uses this to trick him and his clones into destroying each other.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Courtesy of Clancy Brown.
  • Fatal Flaw: His Pride. He made an army of clones of himself because he thought there's no such thing as too much of a good thing. Beast Boy realizes the best way to deal with the army is to ask which one is the best, with all of the clones declaring themselves, individually, as the best. When Aqualad points out they can't all be the best and one has to be better than the others, they army knocks itself out in a quick brawl to determine the winner.

Warp

Voiced by: Xander Berkeley (English), Kunihiko Yasui (Japanese)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/warp2.jpg

A thief from 100 years in the future who travels back in time to steal priceless artifacts.


  • Adaptational Nationality: Judging by his accent, it's safe to say he isn't French like he was in the comics.note 
  • Adaptational Superpower Change: His comics counterpart made portals that allowed travel to different locations but not through time.
  • Composite Character: He has far more in common with the DC comics villain Chronos than the Warp he's based on.
  • Conqueror from the Future: Technically he's more of a Thief From The Future, but hey, close enough.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Not only is he able to travel through time, but he can also travel through dimensions, as seen when he goes to Herald's dimension.
  • Evil Genius: Smart enough to make a time-travelling battlesuit.
  • Greed: He's a time-travelling thief after artifacts that are even more valuable in his time.
  • Lean and Mean: He's a rather skinny supervillain.
  • Powered Armor: His battesuit equipped with a force-field generator, numerous futuristic weapons, and time travel.
  • Time-Traveling Jerkass: Mocks Starfire for assuming that history can be changed, and that he's doing anything wrong by going back in time to steal an artifact that disappeared anyway. Turns out he's wrong.
  • Unexplained Recovery: He was defeated 20 years in the future when his suit malfunctioned and turned him into a baby. How he got recruited by the Brotherhood of Evil is anyone's guess.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: He firmly believes in "predestination", the idea that time is something that cannot be changed, and any attempts at altering time are simply meant to occur in the first place. He uses this reasoning to temporarily break Starfire's spirits, but she snaps out of it thanks to Nightwing, then manages to prove him wrong by stealing the device back and returning it to the past.
    Warp: One cannot damage history, because history cannot be changed. I went back in time to steal this because history says it disappeared. And history says it disappeared, because I went back to steal it. Past. Present. Future. It's all written in stone, my dear. And nothing you do can ever change it.

  • I Just Want to Be Loved: All he wants is a pet, or at least some company.
  • Manchild: He acts like a spoiled toddler. Even his spaceship looks like a baby's playroom, and his suit looks like a baby's onesie (complete with a butt-flap).
  • Made of Iron: He shows immense resistance to the Titans' attacks.

  • The Dog Bites Back: After Atlas becomes his Broken Pedestal, he refuses to fix him and releases the Titans. When a defeated Atlas asks to be repaired, Spike answers "Do it yourself" and leaves.
  • Heel–Face Turn: At first, he serves Atlas without question because he's "better than all of us". But Robin points out that he's the one who fixes Atlas, and thus is dependent on him, and yet treats him like a slave. This causes Spike to rebel against his master.

  • Body Horror: His head isn't even a spider's head—it's literally a full bodied spider.
  • Canon Foreigner: He was created for the series.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: His response to seeing Kitten with Robin is to attack him and tell him to keep his hands off her. Robin is more than happy to oblige.
  • Giant Spider: His head is nothing but a huge spider, eight legs and all.
  • Interspecies Romance: If you don't count Trouble In Tokyo, he and Kitten (though nobody can be completely sure on what either of them actually are) are the only characters in the show who kiss onscreen.
  • Non-Human Head: His body is human, but he has a spider for a head—not just a spider's head, an entire spider for a head.
  • Outlaw Couple: He and Kitten are seen together in a cameo driving in "Revved Up".
  • Satellite Character: He only shows up when he's with Kitten and makes no appearances outside of their relationship otherwise.

    Alien Woman 

Alien Woman/Cironielian Chrysalis Eater

Voiced by: Catherine Cavadini (English), Elena Díaz Toledo (Latin American Spanish)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chrysaliseater.jpg

A shapeshifting extraterrestrial creature that, as her name would suggest, eats chrysalises, namely the chrysalis stage of a certain number of Tameranians. Unfortunately, Starfire is one of them.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: As the "Alien Woman", she gently assures Starfire that the transformation she is going through is a natural process... only so that she could be caught off-guard when she transforms into a "Chrysalis Eater" to devour her.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: She has two identities, though neither of them are very imaginatively-named in the long run.
  • Guttural Growler: Speaks with a raspy voice as the "Chrysalis Eater", in contrast to her soothing angelic voice as the "Alien Woman".
  • Just Desserts: After being defeated she receives this offscreen, courtesy of a Man-Eating Plant. Ironic, all things considered.
  • Light Is Not Good: As the "Alien Woman" she's a white-clad mystical woman who seems motherly and helpful.. while in truth she wants to consume Starfire after she turned into a Chrysalis.
  • Monster of the Week: Appears in only one episode, though this can be forgiven because she appears to be eaten by an alien plant-monster at the end.
  • Mysterious Past: Nothing is revealed about the Cironiellian Chrysalis Eater and whether this is her true racial name along with why she would prefer to consume Chrysalises in the first place.
  • Mythology Gag: As the "Alien Woman", she bears a resemblance to the heroic character White Witch.
  • One-Winged Angel: Her monstrous "Chrysalis Eater" form.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Has the ability to alternate between a large crab/spider-like creature and a humanoid woman with insectoid features.

    Malchior 

Malchior

Voiced by: Greg Ellis (English), Ledner Belisario (Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Flight, superhuman strength, impenetrable scales, fire breath, encyclopedic knowledge of magic, manipulative genius (all but the last two are when released only)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teen_titans_rorek_of_nol_26_malchior_286729.jpg

A Sealed Evil in a Can dragon trapped in one of Raven's spellbooks, who tricked her into thinking he was a Sealed Good in a Can (and falling in love with him) so she'd set him free.


  • And I Must Scream: Malchior was trapped in a book for a thousand years, and is re-sealed within it at the end of the same episode he is introduced. Though he is freed once more in the final season, Herald banishes him to another dimension shortly after.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He pretends to be the good wizard, even showing off a dry wit and charming façade, when he's actually the evil dragon.
  • Canon Foreigner: Just like many of the villains in the series, he does not have a comic book incarnation.
  • Dark Is Evil: He intentionally subverts the Dark Is Not Evil.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Lets off a few, such as saying "ow" when Raven drops his book form on his spine, as well as his critique of Beast Boy's "Stank Ball" game.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: His entire character and plot was heavily similar to the dangers of online dating. Like an online predator or manipulator, Malchior doesn't use his real face with Raven. The page with the face of the wizard who imprisoned him was essentially a portrait he used to deceive Raven into thinking he was someone else. He posed as someone who could understand Raven to just get what he wanted, causing her to obsess over him and shut out the friends she has in person. And when he shows his true self and reveals what he really wanted, he immediately discards her, showing he never cared for her.
  • Didn't See That Coming: So damn sure of himself he didn't realise Raven learned how to reverse-engineer the undoing of his curse, not until it was too late.
  • Evil Brit: It's a played with case as he has the accent, but only when he's pretending to be the good wizard. When he goes dragon, the accent is much less noticeable behind the echoes and deepening of the voice.
  • Evil Sorcerer: Far more experience with magic than Raven and far fewer problems with using the dark stuff.
  • Expy: Evil mage that transforms into a purple-and-black dragon by the end? Hi, Maleficent.
    • Oh, hey to you too, Malefor. What's that, you also utilized a girl to do your bidding and were sealed away by someone? How about that.
  • Genius Bruiser: His knowledge of magic is vast as evidenced by he could fill Raven's whole room with the tomes detailing them all. His true form is also a dragon that can take just about everything the Titans throw at him and dish it back.
  • Mailer Daemon: Evil dragon trapped in a book. He even provides the page image.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Played Raven into thinking him a good guy and even exploited her feelings to make her love him.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The first syllable of his name is mal. As in bad.
  • Nigh-Invulnerability: He tanks out both physical and energy attacks like they are nothing.
  • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot: A dragon Sorcerer who pretends to be a Sealed Good in a Can.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: What he really is, an evil dragon sealed in one of Raven's books.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: What he pretends to be, a good wizard sealed in one of Raven's books.
  • Too Powerful to Live: He's very likely one of the most powerful villains in the whole series period with only Trigon beating him. He shrugs off all the attacks that the Titans throw his way, he's an accomplished sorceror who outclasses Raven, and he's got the smarts to use it all effectively. Notably, the only times on record he was defeated involved being sealed away in either a book or thrown into another dimension, since there doesn't seem to be any other way he could be stopped conventionally.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: He's a complicated example. The human image he uses is actually that of the good wizard who defeated him. Thus he is a white hair black heart who is pretending to be a white hair white heart of someone who really was white hair white heart.
  • Unexplained Recovery: How he got out of the book again and joined the Brotherhood of Evil is never answered.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Gives a speech to Raven that now that he's free of the curse, he no longer needs her... and expects her to cry.

A large robotic heart which can disguise itself as other machines, allowing it to get close to children so it can abduct them.


  • Adult Fear: A child abductor that whisks victims away for an unknown purpose.
  • Canon Foreigner: It was created for the series.
  • Child Eater: It absorbs children into its body using its tentacles.
  • Combat Tentacles: It uses its tentacles to battle the Titans.
  • Flight: It has the ability to fly through some technical feature.
  • Mechanical Monster: A large robotic heart.
  • Mysterious Past: Absolutely nothing is revealed about its origins or why it does what it does. You find that aside from extremely base explanations, there is a lack of info on this villain and a whole lot of fan speculation.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: A name that alludes to the heart can sound sinister.
  • Pulling Themselves Together: Raven rips it apart, but it reassembles after a few days.
  • Save the Villain: Though it can pull itself together, it's saved by the Titans to avoid Raven's powers consuming the child inside of it at the time. Considering that it puts up no resistance when Raven is stopped and Robin broke its glass to save the kid, it can be assumed that what was happening was worse than it seemed.
  • Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: It preys on children, and we never learn why.
  • Villain Decay: Downplayed. Previously it was only ever bested by Raven's powers; by its next appearance, it is defeated by Beast Boy. The Downplayed comes from the fact that we never saw the full fight, so it could have been a tough fight.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: It can disguise itself as other machines.
  • Xtreme Kool Letterz: Its name is "Cardiac" with the C's turned into K's.

Trouble In Tokyo characters (Unmarked spoilers)

Brushogun

Voiced by: Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (English), Nayip Rodríguez(Latin American Spanish)

Powers/Abilities: Can bring his paintings to life.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latest_22.jpg

The main villain of the movie Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo, or at least, it seems that way at first. In reality, he was captured sometime ago by Commander Daizo, and is being forced to create villains for him to "capture".


  • And I Must Scream: While under Commander Daizo's imprisonment.
  • Art Attacker / Art Initiates Life: His primary power, which Daizo exploits to create his Tokyo Troopers and the "villains" he captures.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Back when he was human, Brushogun simply wanted to bring his paintings to life, sadly he failed to realize that using black magic to get the job done wasn't the best idea...
  • Big Bad: Subverted. Brushogun seems to be the major villain at first, but it later turns out that he's a prisoner being used by the real villain of the story, Commander Daizo.
  • Dark Lord on Life Support: As a result of being used by Commander Daizo, he's now a very frail and withered old man.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: He was originally an ordinary artist who gained magical painting powers and became a supervillain. But now he's back to being a nobody, exploited by another villain.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: He used to be a formidable supervillain in his own right, until he was taken hostage by Daizo for his own schemes.
  • Ominous Obsidian Ooze: Brushogun of Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo used to be a normal artist until he turned to dark magic to make one of his creation alive. The price was his own transformation into an ink-filled, paper-skinned entity with the ability to create inky minions.
  • Punny Name: Brushes are used for art, which is his main weapon. Shoguns are Japanese warlords, the most famous of which being the Tokugawa Shogunate which lasted from the reign of Tokugawa Ieyasu (who rose to power in 1603) until Prince Tokugawa Yoshinobu (who gave up his power in 1867).
  • Transformation Horror: According to the story Raven tells, Brushogun's transformation was extremely painful.
  • Was Once a Man: He used to be human until he accidentally cursed himself, turning into a strange being with paper skin and ink blood.

Commander Uehara Daizo

Voiced by: Keone Young (English), Roberto Colmenares (Latin American Spanish)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ueharadaizo.jpg

The true antagonist of Trouble in Tokyo. He is a Tokyo police detective who arrested and detained Brushogun, forcing him to create the Tokyo Troopers (an elite army of fake police officers) along with various fake criminals and monsters, allowing Daizo to take credit for "protecting" the city and rising to power. When the Teen Titans come to his town, he tries to keep them from discovering the truth.


  • Big Bad: Daizo is the real main villain of the TV movie Trouble In Tokyo, pulling the strings behind Brushogun against the latter's will.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: He pretends to be an honest policeman on the same side of the Titans, up until The Reveal of his true motives.
  • Dirty Cop: He's a corrupt, self-serving joke of a "law enforcer" who's actually creating more criminals, just to give himself an excuse to rise through the ranks of the police department.
  • Engineered Heroics: Almost his entire shtick. He has a positive reputation thanks to him and his Tokyo Troopers fighting criminals and monsters except he is actually behind the existence of said criminals and monsters.
  • Final Boss: The main of the film that serves as the series’ finale.
  • Frame-Up: He tries to get rid of Robin by arresting him for the "murder" of Saico-Tek.
  • Fusion Dance / One-Winged Angel: He briefly merges with Brushogun's ink and becomes a giant monster, before being defeated and reverting back to a normal human.
  • Shout-Out:
    • He resembles Detective Zenigata from Lupin III.
    • Him jumping into Brushogan's printing press and transforming into an ink monster is a reference to the origin of The Joker as made popular by The Killing Joke.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He and his so-called "Tokyo Troopers" earn this reputation, just so that Daizo could get some good job promotions.
