Classic Teen Titans antagonists

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

  • Adaptation Dye-Job: In the original series, Blackfire had orange skin like her sister. In Go!, she has paler skin.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: Unlike the original series, this version of Blackfire is portrayed much more sympathetically, as she sees the error of her ways and tried to repair her relationship with Starfire. Then Starfire got revenge and Blackfire went back to being evil. Her reappearance in "Girls' Night In" subverts this trope with a vengeance, as she is presented as one of the most serious threats the show has ever seen.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She is obsessed with Robin's butt and likes to constantly remark about it.
  • Big Brother Bully: Well, Big Sister. To Starfire, initially. And later on.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She would try to be in Starfire's life, but only to crush her.
  • Blatant Lies: When it’s pointed out that she never answers her sister’s calls, she responds with “Got a new number.”
  • The Bus Came Back: "Girls' Night In" marks her first major appearance since her debut over five years ago.
  • Cain and Abel: Cain to Starfire's Abel.
  • Characterization Marches On: While she was portrayed as a typical bullying big sister that eventually Took a Level in Kindness and attempted to make things right with Starfire in her debut episode, her next major appearance years later would shed Blackfire of all of her redeeming and comedic traits and become one of the most serious villains in the show.
  • Cool Big Sis: She ultimately becomes one for the Titans and wants to be one for Starfire as well. Unfortunately for her, Starfire doesn't buy it. She becomes a Big Sister Bully again after Starfire gets her revenge.
  • Dark Action Girl: She is evil and come "Girls Night In", one of the most threatening foes in the show.
  • Faux Affably Evil: She acts friendly and charming but it's all an act to betray Starfire and frame her for her crimes. She tries to do better until Starfire gets her revenge. She goes back to her old ways in "Girls Night In".
  • For the Evulz: Assuming it wasn't revenge for Starfire maiming her after her then Heel–Face Turn, Blackfire only really tries to destroy the Earth in "Girls Night In" just because she can.
  • Get A Hold Of Yourself Man: In her lesson on listening to someone's problems, she does this to Beast Boy, only for him to cry and then run away.
  • Hates Being Touched: Often pushes Starfire when being hugged. She even punched Cyborg and Beast Boy when they attempted to hug her. Robin is the exception, although this seems to be an excuse to advance on him, getting carried away and brutally crushing him in the process.
  • Hate Sink: Usually becomes this in "Girls Night In", by coming off as this by being more villainous than in her first episode.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After realizing what a terrible sister she's been, she wants to do better. Then she goes back to being evil after Starfire almost kills her.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Starfire rejects Blackfire's attempts at sincerity in order to exact her revenge against the latter.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: After realizing the abuse that she put on Starfire, she then shows this. Then she goes back to being evil after Starfire brutally maims her.
  • Jerkass: Before the Heel–Face Turn, this was pretty much the only way of describing her. And after Starfire creates a huge mushroom cloud on her face she goes back to being one.
  • Love Redeems: When the Titans tell her that Starfire loved her despite her evilness, she decides to be a better sister. Then she goes back to being a bully after her sister almost kills her.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She makes Starfire think she is a loving sister but is actually exploiting her.
  • Oh, Crap!: Blackfire visibly has this reaction when she realizes that Starfire is going to attack her. This is after Blackfire makes a sincere effort to reconcile with Starfire.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: By "Girls Night In", she's ready to destroy the entire planet for kicks.
  • Talking the Monster to Death: A Inverted example, by telling to Starfire she wishes she could not have a sister.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: While her debut showed Blackfire in a sympathetic light, with her trying (and failing) to preform a Heel–Face Turn, her next appearance has her become a Omnicidal Maniac threatening to destroy the world For the Evulz.
  • Valley Girl: She sometimes talks like a Valley Girl.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: While not so much in her first appearance, "Girls' Night In" has Blackfire become one of the most serious threats in the show; with her attempting to destroy the Earth and single-handedly giving the entire Girls Night group a run for their money. And unlike Slade and Rose, Blackfire no longer has any comedic traits.
  • Villian With Good Publicity: Inverted from the previous series, where the Titans initially were fond of her. Here, they (sans Starfire) are aware she's evil and distrust her from the get-go. Probably because her selling Starfire as a slave (or sending her to Earth) is a bit more open knowledge here.
  • Vocal Evolution: Hynden Walch's voice for Blackfire is slightly lower in Teen Titans Go! than it was in the original Teen Titans series.

    The Brain
Voiced by: Scott Menville

  • All Your Powers Combined: In "Brian" he steals all of the Titans' powers and uses them for his power suit.
  • Arc Villain: Of his own arc.
  • Brain in a Jar: Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
  • Irony: The Brain corrects Beast Boy when the latter refers to him as "Brian". However, he makes the same mistake later on when he reveals Project B.R.I.A.N. to the Titans and realizes that Beast Boy was correct all along. This was lampshaded by Beast Boy, of all people, which embarrassed the Brain when he tried to correct Beast Boy again.
  • Large Ham: "Kilowatts! How could I make that mistake?!"
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: He may be goofy and Played for Laughs like most characters on the show, but he's one of the few to pose a genuine threat, managing to capture all the Titans and hold them captive for 8 months.
  • Powered Armor: He usually has this.
  • This Cannot Be!: Utters this in "40% 40% 20%" when even an a capella version of Cyborg's favorite song, "The Night Begins To Shine," gives him the power to have a Heroic Second Wind, but also turn into Cyborgimus Prime.
  • Truer to the Text: Past animated versions of The Brain generally had his relationship with Monsieur Mallah altered into that of a master and servant rather than two lovers like they were in the comics. In "Villains in a Van Getting Gelato", Go! Brain and Mallah are finally shown in a brief romantic moment similar to their comic book counterparts.
  • Villain Team-Up: He teams up with Freakazoid's archenemy, The Lobe, in "Huggbees".

    Brother Blood
Voiced by: John DiMaggio

  • Adaptational Wimp: Brother Blood lacks the fighting skills of his 2003 counterpart and his hypnotic powers are nowhere near as effective; with him needing to hook himself up to a machine in order to successfully hypnotize anyone.
  • Ascended Extra: In the first show, Brother Blood was the Arc Villain of the third season for Cyborg's character arc and doesn't make anymore appearances after that. In Go!, he's a recurring villain who isn't limited to a single season and has made sporadic appearances throughout the various seasons.
  • Crazy-Prepared: In "The Best Robin" he had a contingency plan in case he ever fought multiple Robins, where he would take a key out of a box labeled "In case of Robins, break glass" and use it to summon Hurt Bot.
  • Evil Genius: He made a robot specifically designed for torture.
  • Evil Mentor: He is the headmaster of an academy for villains.
  • Evil Old Folks: He may have his cyborg body, but he's still pretty old.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He created a robot to torture the Titans.
  • Hypnotic Eyes: He displays hypnotism through his eyes.
  • Large Ham: When he is freaking out over waffles.
  • Only Sane Man: Plays this role in "Waffles" when Beast Boy and Cyborg, and later all the Titans, are being silly saying "Waffles" over and over.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: At the end of "Waffles", due to him being annoyed with the Titans constantly saying "waffles".
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one in "Waffles" when Cyborg and Beast Boy won't stop saying "waffles" no matter what he does. He eventually tortures them while demanding they give up their access codes 'and to stop saying "waffles" because it is very annoying and not funny at all. When the other Titans join in he can't take it anymore and just leaves with what little sanity he has left.


    Control Freak
Voiced by: Alexander Polinsky

  • Adaptational Badass: In the previous series, he was barely a blip on the Titans' radar when it comes to their rogues. Here, he's a Physical God of a Reality Warper that made the universe Denser and Wackier. Likewise, while he was treated as a Harmless Villain in the previous series, Robin outright calls him a monster for cancelling the previous series.
  • Cosmic Retcon: In "The Fourth Wall" it's revealed he was responsible for the cancellation of the original Teen Titans series.
  • Fan Boy: Of Pretty Pretty Pegasus much like Raven.
  • Fat Bastard: He is fat and a villain.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: The show breaks the fourth wall from time-to-time, but Control Freak has it as a pivotal part of his character, being responsible for creating the reality of Teen Titans Go! to begin with. In all of his appearances from "The Fourth Wall" onward, he's mainly been used as the mouthpiece that reflects the general disdain and hatred the show's audience has. "Island Adventure" even gives the Titans the benefit of the doubt about all the loud haters on the internet by having him point out that the loudmouths who constantly complain hardly represents the great majority of the show's audience.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He has a remote that can put people into a cartoon and cancel the cartoon he lives in.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: He's the reason why the original Teen Titans was cancelled.
  • Jerkass: He is generally unpleasant, even to Raven, someone he shares a love of Pretty Pretty Pegasus with. And even if he does somewhat have a point that the Go! Titans are significantly less heroic and likeable, he's absolutely relentless in harping on the Titans for how awful he thinks they are and unfavorably comparing them to their 2003 counterparts, other heroes, and various other fictional characters.
  • My Greatest Failure: He regrets rebooting the original Teen Titans series and replacing it with a series that's even worse.
  • Reality Warper: His remote control grant him this power to a degree.
  • Running Gag: In "Friendship", Robin calls him a "Crazy Couch Potato." "Classic Titans" follows this up with Robin calling him a "Sanctimonious Sofa Spud."

    Dr. Light
Voiced by: Rodger Bumpass; Scott Menville ("Colors of Raven")

  • Adaptational Heroism: On top of being Affably Evil this Dr Light made a legitimate Heel–Face Turn after getting to know Starfire and Raven. The boys however proceed to ruin it and give him a Heel–Face Door-Slam.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Caged Tiger" and "I See You".
  • Affably Evil: Very polite to Starfire and Raven while waiting for the rest of the Titans. He even pays for their meals when they had lunch together. He also wants to give up his life of crime and join the Titans until the boys beat him up and he is evil again because of them.
  • Butt-Monkey: He is injured horribly in almost every episode he appears.
  • Continuity Nod: In the post-Flashpoint version of the DC universe, Dr. Arthur Light was a good guy, so it makes sense that he's portrayed more sympathetically in this version.
  • The Chew Toy: He can almost never make an appearance without being maimed, or at least having something bad happen to him, like his car getting pooped on by the Titans as birds.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Actually considers giving up his life of crime and joining the Titans right before Robin, Cyborg, and Beast Boy beat him up.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: More so than in the original series, and way more so than his pre-Flashpoint counterpart.
  • Large Ham: Mostly he acts very friendly even though he is a villain.
  • Light 'em Up: He has light based superpowers.
  • Light Is Not Good: Generally speaking, but it briefly zigzags to Light Is Good in "Caged Tiger".
  • Mad Scientist: He has built many light based machines to destroy things with.

    Killer Moth
Voiced by: Scott Menville

Voiced by: Tara Strong

  • Adaptational Badass: While still no threat at all, this Kitten is at least capable of doing villainous deeds without assistance from her father.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: She's a teenager, and is a huge brat.
  • Cute Is Evil: She's a bank robber, and is pretty cute.
  • Harmless Villain: Lampshaded by Starfire and the others when Robin tries to hype Kitten up as a threat that requires a giant robot to stop.
  • Karma Houdini: She gets away with her loot due to Robin's stupidity.
  • Pink Means Feminine: One of the girliest characters, and is clad in pink.
  • Spoiled Brat: Nowhere near as much in the original series though.

    Kyd Wykkyd

  • Adapted Out: He was a member of the H.I.V.E. Five in the original series, but in this series he only makes a couple of cameos, and never appears with the H.I.V.E.
  • The Cameo: The only time he appears.
  • Expressive Mask: He looks very similar to Robin, even having a red Expressive Mask.
  • The Quiet One: He never says a word, just like in the original series.

    Mad Mod

  • Adaptational Badass: This Mad Mod succeeded in deaging the Titans and as of yet has not been defeated.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Thanks to Raven, he succeeds in aging all of the Titans aside from her.
  • Evil Brit: Speaks with a British accent.
  • Evil Old Folks: His real age is quite elderly, but he keeps stealing youth from his victims to sustain himself.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He wears glasses, and is a super villain.
  • The Quiet One: He doesn't say a word during his appearance (likely due to the producers not feeling like spending the extra money to get Malcolm McDowell back for two lines).
  • Rapid Aging: Much like the original series, he carries a cane that can age his enemies.

    Madame Rouge
Voiced by: Hynden Walch


    Monsier Mallah

    Mother Mae Eye
Voiced by: Billie Hayes

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Her real form doesn't have warty green skin like she did in the original series. In fact her Third Eye is the only inhuman feature.
  • Adaptational Badass: While in the original series she slowly lulled her victims in using hypnosis, in this series she's quite capable of direct hand-to-hand combat.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She owns a bakery.
  • Expy: Of Mrs. Lovett, with her tendency of baking pies made from her customers.
  • Evil Old Folks: Looks like a granny, but will bake living people into her pies.
  • Fat Bastard: She's not skinny and is a villain.
  • Humanoid Abomination: Obviously considering her appearance in the original show. They dial it back a bit here.
  • Human Resources: Makes her pies out of people.
  • Never Mess with Granny: An evil old lady who's capable into baking someone into pies.
  • Punny Name: Of the phrase "Mother may I?"
  • Third Eye: The big dot on her hat is actually an eye which she uses to hypnotize people.
  • The Quiet One: Doesn't speak a word through her first appearance. She does in her second.
  • Wicked Witch: Robin even lampshades that she is a copy of the witch from Hansel and Gretel.

    Mumbo Jumbo
Voiced by: Tom Kenny


    Punk Rocket

Voiced by: Will Arnett

  • Adaptational Badass:
    • This Slade is far more impressive than any other version of him, very nearly succeeding in world domination and mind control over every superhero in the world.
    • While the Slade of the original series made use of Sladebots, this Slade has upgraded to a Humongous Mecha.
  • Adaptational Late Appearance: In the original series Slade was there from the start. In this series he doesn't debut until after four seasons, save for a few second cameo in "The Return of Slade".
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: The original series Slade shadowed the Titans for ages and would never leave them alone. This Slade had nothing to do with the Titans years into their superhero career, and the Titans only go looking for him due to wanting an Arch-Enemy, while Slade still wants nothing to do with them.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: The Titans immediately mistake him for Deadpool, but he himself insists Deadpool is a copy of him while he's the superior original.
  • The Artifact: Still just calling him "Slade". The 2003 series did so because of the network enforcing a Never Say "Die" policy that prevented them from calling him "Deathstroke". Go! has had no such restrictions, in both the series and the movie, but the name "Deathstroke" is still never used for him, possibly just out of tradition at this point.
  • Badass Normal: He doesn't have any superpowers (unless you count Mind Manipulation), but he's very skilled in various forms of combat.
  • Big Bad: Of Teen Titans Go! To the Movies.
  • Composite Character: Slade has aspects taken from the comics, such as his more vibrant color scheme and use of guns and swords, as well as his 2003 portrayal with him being a much more evil and manipulative character. All of which are played for laughs as is the Teen Titans Go! standard.
  • Creepy Crossdresser: Disguises himself as the female Jade Wilson as a part of his scheme.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's evidently where Rose got it from.
  • Demoted to Extra: In the first show, Slade was the recurring Arch-Enemy of the Titans in the first two seasons, came back as a hallucination in the third season, appeared once more as a recurring villain in the fourth season, and reappeared one final time as Actually a Doombot in the fifth and final season. In Go!, he has only one cameo in the entire series proper in "The Return of Slade" and while he makes a full-fledged appearance as the Big Bad in Teen Titans Go! To the Movies, it's still a far cry from his previous portrayal as the flagship villain of the series.
  • Denser and Wackier: This Slade is played much less seriously, being a Deadpan Snarker who is fed up with the Titans.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: While it's not quite as deep as the Creepy Monotone that Ron Perlman's Slade had, this Slade still has a Badass Baritone.
  • Humongous Mecha: Slade is shown having a gigantic Slade-bot to fight the Titans.
  • Laughably Evil: The main difference with his original counterpart.
  • Large Ham: Throughout the movie, but when he first encounters the Titans, he loudly announces his skills in "mind manipulation". How loud? The words appropriately appear behind him and take up the entire screen.
  • Manipulative Bastard: It's Slade, what did you expect? In his guise as Jade Wilson, he convinces every superhero to make movies about themselves and uses this as a distraction so that he can commit crimes unopposed. When the Titans prove to be more of a threat than he realized, he decides to go for a Divide and Conquer strategy and separates the Titans by preying on Robin's insecurities (offering to put him in a movie without the other Titans, claiming that they're holding him back). Then, while filming the movie, he tricks Robin into letting him in the Titans Tower vault so he can get the power source for his machine back. Finally, during the climax, he manages to (briefly) put Robin under his control by convincing the Titan to take a peek at his movie despite its ability to brainwash anyone who watches it, even singing a Dark Reprise of Robin's earlier song, "My Superhero Movie", back to him.
  • Master of Disguise: No one In-Universe (except Raven) sees through his disguise as Jade Wilson.
  • One-Man Army: He can simultaneously take on all of the Titans at once.
  • Only Sane Man: He's not having any of the Titans' antics, constantly pointing out how stupid their behavior is.
  • Truer to the Text: This Slade is closer to his comics counterpart than the Slade from the 2003 series, being far more physically proactive in his Evil Plan rather than the Evil Overlord who would sit in the shadows.

Voiced by: Ashley Johnson

  • Adaptational Villainy: In the previous series, she started out good, but was persuaded into villainy by Slade. In this series, she's evil from the start. Of course, compared to the original comic incarnation of Terra, this one is pretty much spot-on.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Operation Dude Rescue" and "Girls Night In".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Like in the original series.
  • Bash Sisters: She works in tandem with Rose in "Operation Dude Rescue", "The Titans Show", and "Girls Night In".
  • Because You Were Nice to Me: She puts aside her obsession with revenge on the Titans after Raven admits that she actually thinks she's pretty cool. Judging from Terra's reaction to this remark, she's not used to such compliments from people and thus values them greatly.
  • The Bus Came Back: She makes her first prominent appearance in over three years in "Girls Night In".
  • Composite Character: Combines the scheming, hateful Terra from the comics with the more awkward, conflicted Terra from the show, making her a villain who enjoys being evil but still is capable of Pet the Dog moments.
  • Dark Action Girl: Unlike the original series, she starts off as being evil.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: She has no sense of subtlety when it comes to her villainy.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: She can lift rocks with her mind.
  • Friendly Enemy: Develops more of this dynamic with Raven and Starfire in "Operation: Dude Rescue".
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her eyes glow yellow when using her powers.
  • Hidden Heart of Gold: Beast Boy insists she has a good side in "Be Mine", and she ends up proving him correct by the end. She shows it again in "Operation: Dude Rescue", actually befriending Raven.
  • Incessant Music Madness: "Rocks and Water" reveals that she no longer likes Beast Boy's song "Fade Away" because he sung it constantly when they were in the trash dimension.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: She is pretty terrible at her job.
  • I Was Only Pretending To Like You: She never loved Beast Boy, not even liked him, and only used him to hack into the Titans' computer. In "Be Mine", she ends up developing legitimate feelings for him after he sings her a love song as she's about to kill him. In her next appearance, however, she grows sick of him when he won't stop singing the song and dumps him for Aqualad.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: She develops into one by "Girls' Night In". While she's a villain who's often rude to others, Terra still genuinely cares about her friends and is more than capable of empathizing with others.
  • Manipulative Bitch: She becomes Beast Boy's girlfriend so she can learn about the Tower's defenses for an unknown villain. She's actually terrible at manipulation, but everyone except Raven is Too Dumb to Live and falls for it anyway.
  • The Mole: She infiltrates the Titans for an unseen villain (likely Slade).
  • Noodle People: She is quite skinny.
  • Obviously Evil: A running gag in her appearances is that she is not even remotely subtle about her duplicity.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Makes no effort in confirming her status as BB's girlfriend yet BB and the Titans sans Raven don't believe she is suspicious.
  • The Rival: To Raven, first generally, later for BB's affections, and then toned down when Raven admitted that she thought Terra was cool and kind of liked her.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: "Girls Night In" is the first time she doesn't attempt to backstab someone and is genuinely supportive of Starfire throughout
  • Trapped in Another World: She's defeated when Raven sucks her into another dimension. Along with half of the Tower. She gets out in "Be Mine", but winds up back in by the end. At least she has BB with her this time! She ends up being sent there a third time later, this time along with Aqualad. In her fourth appearance, she finally gets to end the episode without being sent back.
  • Truer to the Text: Similar to her comic books counterpart, she starts out having bad intentions for the Titans and hates Beast Boy's guts from the get-go, rather than being an Anti-Villain like her 2003 counterpart.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: VERY short ones.


  • Abusive Parents: Despite this Trigon being a much more loving father, he still flicks Raven when he is giant in "The Titans Show", and uses a giant fist to crush her in "Thanksgiving".
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: In contrast to his usual portrayal as evil incarnate, this Trigon is portrayed as a loving, Bumbling Dad who genuinely loves Raven and is more of a Friendly Enemy to the Titans. That said, he won't hesitate to manipulate Raven into embracing her demon side.
  • Archnemesis Dad: To Raven. But they actually do love each other.
  • Ascended Extra: In the first show, Trigon was an Arc Villain for the fourth season revolving around Raven (at least before the premiere of Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans). In this show, he's one of the most recurring villains and is constantly a thorn on Raven's side throughout the series.
  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: How he normally manifests.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: He and his Teen Titans counterpart are the main villains of the crossover movie Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans.
  • Big Red Devil: As always.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Whenever he tries to butter up his daughter's friends, it's pretty much always to set up a plan to win Raven over to his side.
  • Bumbling Dad: Portrayed as one, though that was largely just Obfuscating Stupidity.
  • Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: The Titans lay one on him in his debut appearance.
  • Evil Is Hammy: When he turns evil.
  • Evil Is Petty: In "Caramel Apples", Trigon destroys the city...because Raven didn't give him anything for Father's Day.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Thanks to his voice actor.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He has shown that he really cares for his daughter Raven. Heck, he even said that he didn't stop Raven from becoming a hero.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: He's shown to be saddened at the fact that Starfire's dad was neglectful. Trigon may be an evil demon, but at least he always tried to be there for his own daughter.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Despite his fearsome reputation, Trigon presents himself as a personal and easygoing guy in front of the other Titans. It's just an act to get them to sway Raven on his side, and he definitely catches them off-guard when he orders Raven to kill them as a final task. Generally speaking, whenever he acts nice and tries to get Raven to do things with him, it's usually one of his End of the World as We Know It shenanagins.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard:
    • The Titans (well Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg anyway) use the gifts he gave them to defeat him.
    • In "Crazy Day", after uncovering Trigon's plot to use imagery of her friends to drive her insane, Raven uses her magic to transport the Titans into his mind for a taste of his own medicine.
  • Large Ham: When he goes full demon lord.
  • Laughably Evil: He is an evil demon Bumbling Dad.
  • Manipulative Bastard: While the Trigon from the original series was an apocalyptic blunt instrument, this Trigon is more subtle and underhanded in his attempts to turn his daughter against her friends.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: Despite his Bumbling Dad persona, he has his moments. In Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans, he devours the more serious 2003 Trigon to become the formidable Hexagon and kicks things Up to Eleven.
  • Nothing Personal: Said to the other Titans when he instructs Raven to kill them to complete her training.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: He plays the Bumbling Dad in order to trick Raven's friends into convincing her to be a demon and it looked as though he almost succeeded. Too bad Raven doesn't buy it one bit.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: In his civilian form, he wears a pink sweater vest. He also has a Pretty Pretty Pegasus kite.
  • Satan: Basically this for the DC universe.
  • Super Empowering: Gave the Titans (sans Raven) powers as special gifts, albeit ones of questionable usefulness. Starfire got the ability to speak as an modern Earth girl and Cyborg got a dog head for a hand. Beast Boy, Robin, and Silkie at least, chose decent upgrades.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Just like his 2003 counterpart, since he's a demon overlord.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: Just wants Raven to take over a dimension or two.

The H.I.V.E. Five

  • Adaptational Distillation: Their backstory of being in H.I.V.E. Academy is never elaborated on in this version. Here they're nothing more than an Evil Counterpart team to the Titans.
  • Adaptational Nice Guy: They're still villains, but are substantially less evil than the original series. Quite often they will get punished by Titans when they are currently innocent of crimes.
  • Adapted Out: There's no sign of Private H.I.V.E. or Kyd Wykkyd being on the team in this version. Although Kyd did make a cameo appearance during Robin's dream in "Nose Mouth".
  • Adaptational Wimp: The H.I.V.E. were able to give the Titans for a run for their money in the 2003 series. Here, the Titans regularly curb-stomp them with little effort on their part.
  • Anti-Villain: Sometimes portrayed as this, as the Titans beat them up even when they're not doing anything wrong.
  • Arch-Enemy: To the Teen Titans.
  • Butt-Monkey: They frequently get the short end of the stick, and quite often the Titans deliver it.
  • Composite Character: Much like their original series counterparts, their team is an amalgamation of the H.I.V.E. and the Fearsome Five.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Operation Tin Man" and "The H.I.V.E. Five".
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Teen Titans as a whole.
  • Flat Character: Outside of Jinx (and to some degree Gizmo) the team have very little personality in this series.
  • Harmless Villain: To parallel the Titans being incompetent heroes.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: They never succeed, and the Titans always torment them for trying or even for loitering.
  • Living Prop: What Mammoth, See-More, and Billy Numerous's roles in the show typically amount to, with them usually only being there so the Titans and H.I.V.E. have an equal number of members.
  • Overarching Villain: Due to the lack of any story arcs in this series and a Villain of the Week format, these guys are the most frequent appearing bad guys the Titans go up against.
  • The Quiet One: Mammoth, See-More and Billy Numerous are typically depicted as such.
  • Satellite Character: With the exception of Jinx, the H.I.V.E. Five only really exist to get beat up by the Titans.
  • Suddenly Voiced: Mammoth, See-More, and Billy Numerous speak for the first time in "The H.I.V.E. Five".
  • Villains Out Shopping: Often shown doing casual non-villainous activities.

    Billy Numerous
Voiced by: Scott Menville

Voiced by: Lauren Tom

  • Evil Counterpart: Somewhat to Robin in terms of leadership, and to Cyborg in their technological based powers.
  • Evil Genius: The smartest member of the H.I.V.E., and doubles as The Leader.
  • Eyes Always Shut: Occasionally depicted this way.
  • Foil: To Robin. Both are leaders of their respective team, short, look like a baby (Gizmo looks like a baby and Robin has baby hands), are Butt Monkeys, are bad people (Robin actually being a bad person in some episodes and Gizmo being a villain). But Robin abuses his own team and Gizmo doesn't, and Robin is a hero and Gizmo isn't.
  • Fun Size: He is so short he has been likened to being a baby on several occasions.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Built a giant robot army to take down the Titans.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: He seems quick to anger.
  • The Leader: The team leader in this version of the Titans.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: When they're open. For some reason, his eyes are always completely white.
  • The Napoleon: He is as short as a baby and is a villain.

  • The Brute: Serves as this for the H.I.V.E., being the physically strongest member.
  • Butt-Monkey: In the episode "In and Out", the disguised Titans keep beating him up to prove their villain cred, even though each time Gizmo accepted them on the spot.
  • Dumb Muscle: In the original series he was an idiot. In this series he seems to have normal intelligence, but is still very strong, but apparently Robin can take him down (with some difficulty, but Mammoth was barely fighting back).
  • Evil Counterpart: To Beast Boy, as both of them serve as the Big Guy on the team.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: Same as Gizmo.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Four times in "In and Out".
  • Power Creep, Power Seep: There are times when he's portrayed as the biggest and toughest H.I.V.E. member who can swat others aside like flies, other times Robin can curbstomp him.
  • Recurring Extra: He doesn't talk.
  • Super Strength: Capable of lifting Beast Boy as a blue whale.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: The reason why the Titans kept beating him up in the episode "In and Out".


Other DC antagonists

    Balloon Man 
Voiced by: Greg Davies


    Gentleman Ghost 

  • Affably Evil: He's always extremely polite, though Starfire points out that this doesn't excuse his crimes.
  • Baddie Flattery: He tells Raven that he finds her powers "impressive", hence why he decides to take possession of her body.
  • Bank Robbery: He's in the middle of robbing a bank when the Titans comes to stop him.
  • Deader Than Dead: He's already a ghost, and he gets utterly destroyed by Raven's demonic powers.
  • Demonic Possession: One of his powers is to take possession of other people's body.
  • High-Class Glass: Like in the comics, he has a monocle.
  • Helping Granny Cross the Street: He's such a gentleman that he can't resist doing that, even while being chased by the Titans.
  • Killed Off for Real: Presumably. After being destroyed by Raven's powers, he never appears again.
  • No-Sell: Being intangible, the various attacks of the Teen Titans (or bullets) have absolutely no effect on him.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: Gentleman Ghost is mainly an adversary of Hawkman in the comics, not of the Teen Titans.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite only appearing in one scene, he's responsible for cracking Raven's gem and unleashing her inner demonic power. Without him, the rest of the movie probably wouldn't have happened.
  • Starter Villain: He serves as the villain during the opening scene of the movie, but he ends up getting killed by Raven and never shows up again.

    Rose Wilson/Ravager
Voiced by: Pamela Adlon

  • Abusive Parents: At the very least, she doesn't get along with her father and thinks he's lame. For those that don't know, her dad is Slade.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the comics, Rose was brainwashed by her father into becoming a villain. Here, she apparently became a villain of her own free will and actually thinks her father isn't evil enough.
  • Age Lift: She seems older than the Titans rather than younger as her comics counterpart was.
  • Ambiguously Gay: Rose's interactions with Raven often come across as flirtatious. She even looks at Raven with bedroom eyes on more than one occasion.
  • Bash Sisters: She works in tandem with Terra in "Operation Dude Rescue", "The Titans Show", and "Girls Night In".
  • Berserk Button: Trying to tell her what to do is a sure-fire way to piss Rose off.
  • Birds of a Feather: The reason why she instantly clicks with Raven is they are very alike in personality. They both enjoy being mean and trash-talking, both quite sarcastic, and both enjoy doing non-girly things. The only key difference between them is Rose has no problem with harming innocents, which is where Raven and her had a disagreement.
  • BFS: She wields one (courtesy of Raven) in "Operation Dude Rescue" and uses it to land the finishing blow on Brain.
  • Blood Knight: She's the only member of the Girls' Night group that was visibly looking forward at a chance to fight Blackfire's army in "Girls' Night In".
  • Boobs of Steel: A physically dominant fighter, who has the most prominent bust in the series.
  • Break Them by Talking: Her trademark strategy in this series is to fire insults at her enemies that touch on sensitive areas.
  • The Bus Came Back: She makes her first prominent appearance in over three years in "Girls' Night In".
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: While lacking in superhuman abilities, she makes up for it by being at the peak of her strength, speed, and skill that makes puts her on par with enhanced enemies she faces, likely due to her training with Slade. This makes her one of the most dangerous and deadly adversaries the Titans have faced and was very close to killing them. When allying with Raven and the other girls in "Girls' Night In," she is able to carry and run with a giant heavy sword that Raven conjured with no problem and cuts through The Brain's mech with maximum effort on her part.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: Notably she is the only character on the show with an alter-ego who goes by her real name rather than her codename.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: She manages to effortlessly take down the Titans twice in "Cool School".
  • Dark Action Girl: She's one of the top fighters in this series, easily surpassing the Titans.
  • Damsel out of Distress: In "Girls' Night In", she was able to free herself from Blackfire's metal brace before freeing the other girls and with Terra & Raven's help, caught Starfire after Blackfire blasted her back down to Earth.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Operation Dude Rescue" and "Girls' Night In".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Much like Raven. The difference is that Rose weaponizes her snarks.
  • Easily Forgiven: Raven seemed pretty eager to hang out with Rose again in "Operation: Dude Rescue", even though she tried to kill her and her friends without remorse the last time they met.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Or more sociopathic than thou. While Raven can be an unsympathetic jerkass, she's still disgusted by Rose's disregard for life.
  • Eyepatch of Power: Just like her dad.
  • The Friends Who Never Hang: Despite being in the same Girl's Night gang, Rose and Jinx have never had a significant interaction.
  • Friendly Enemy: Becomes this with Raven. Even after their friendship is halted due to Rose's willingness to kill, they later admit to missing each other.
  • Generation Xerox: For all her dismissing her father as "lame," both are still the two toughest threats the Titans ever faced and neither can resist snarking at the Titans.
  • It Amused Me: Basically her entire justification for nearly killing an old homeless man.
  • Jerkass: She's an extremely rude person that ridicules and demeans everyone she encounters For the Evulz. That isn't even mentioning her throwing knives at a homeless man and trying to murder Raven simply because she got in the way of her fun.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Her signature weapons. She mentions they were a gift from her father.
  • Lack of Empathy: Rose may be the least empathetic character in the show, and that's saying something. She's utterly unphased to see Terra had been trapped in a garbage dimension for months in "Operation: Dude Rescue" and even casually suggests they throw her back in when it seems she can't contribute. She's also the only one who doesn't seem overly concerned about Starfire's feelings in "Girls' Night In" and makes zero attempt to comfort her.
  • Lean and Mean: She's a Noodle Person and is a villain.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Her skill at wielding insults is second to none, and is also quite proficient at word play that leaves Robin utterly flustered.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's never explained if the Titans getting physically hurt by her insults are a result of some sort of ability she has or if their self-esteem is just that low.
  • Not So Different: She is remarkably alike Raven in personality, allowing them to become friends.
  • One-Woman Army: She's able to single-handedly take down a squad of guards, destroy dozens of Brain's Mecha-Mooks, and even the Titans without breaking a sweat.
  • Pet the Dog: In one of her only moments of sincerity, after spending "Girls' Night In" making fun of Bumblebee's powers, Rose willingly admits that they're actually useful once she frees the group from their prisons. This compliment was one of the few acts of genuine kindness Bumblebee receives in "The 6th Titan" arc.
  • Pre Ass Kicking One Liner: She says this gem right before laying a beat down on the Titans.
    Rose: Cool School isn't cool, but dead people are cool, and you'll be dead soon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has naturally red eyes and is among the most competent, dangerous characters in the show.
  • Sincerity Mode: When she offers a sincere compliment to Bumblebee after spending most of "Girls' Night In" ragging on her powers, she immediately thinks Rose is mocking her.
  • The Sociopath: She's more than willing to threaten innocent lives just for kicks and attempted to kill Raven, presumably her only friend at the time, for getting in her way.
  • Token Evil Teammate: She's this within the Girls' Night group. She shows little interest in helping Raven until she was promised milkshakes in "Operation Dude Rescue" and in "Girls' Night In", while Terra would take a level in kindness, she's the one character that is uninterested in comforting Starfire and is the least invested in stopping Blackfire.
  • Trash Talk: One of the most successful, witty, trash-talking characters in the series.
  • Troll: She spends a large portion of "Cool School" trolling Robin with the help of Raven.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: In a goofy comedy where the villains are barely a threat and treated as jokes more than anything, Rose stands out as the show's only genuinely threatening and competent villain that's easily able to take down the Titans.
  • Volleying Insults: Has an exchange with Raven, before they begin respecting each other.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: All it takes for the Titans to beat her is to express their feelings of friendship with one another.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She's an evil albino who has no qualms about killing.
  • Words Can Break My Bones: Her insults not only demoralize the Titans, but they seem to actually be painful. On the flip side, however, sincere, unironic expressions of The Power of Friendship physically debilitate Rose to the point where she is literally sick to her stomach.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: The first thing she does after Robin shouts "Titans, GO!"?
    Rose: More like "Titans Go...away."

Teen Titans Go! original antagonists

    Easter Bunny
  • A Day in the Limelight: In “The Teen Titans Go! Easter Holiday Classic” and “Easter Creeps”.
  • Creepy Good: Lovingly lays eggs for all the people of the world to enjoy. Also likes to watch people eat said eggs. However, no one wants the eggs as they find both him and his ability to lay them disgusting.
  • He Cleans Up Nicely: Somehow a makeover transforms him into a human hunk, albeit with bunny years.
  • Mr. Seahorse: If his ability to lay eggs didn't already count him as such, his child with the Tooth Fairy hatches from one at the end of "Eater Creeps."
  • Token Good: Pretty much the only holiday mascot on the show who isn't secretly evil. He's creepy, but never actually mean. Hell, the one time he even stood up for himself ended with him falling in love with the target.

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

  • Chekhov's Gunman: Cameos for about a second in "Pie Bros" before playing a major role in the next episode, "Driver's Ed". He then makes two more cameos after that episode, despite going to Hell in it.
  • Devil in Plain Sight: It's apparent to everyone that he's a bank robber, except Robin. Until it's revealed, Robin knew all along, but cared more about getting his licence.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: A bespectacled bank robber.
  • Obviously Evil: To everyone. Even Robin.
  • Sadist Teacher: A driving instructor who uses giving permit tests as a cover up for having a getaway driver.

    Evil Dragon

  • Knight of Cerebus: He's taken seriously since he has a desire to wipe out free will by destroying music.
  • In Their Own Image: The dragon wants to destroy the song in order to darken the world of The Night Begins To Shine and rule it as its king once more.

A mockingbird.

A mockingbird.

    Pain Bot
Voiced by: Scott Menville; Khary Payton ("Brian")

  • Ax-Crazy: It exists solely to cause pain.
  • Broken Record: "Pain. Pain. Pain."
    • "All I know is pain. All I know is pain."
  • Cute Machines: Cyborg sure thinks so.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Cyborg adopts it once Brother Blood's remote control is destroyed. This does not meaningfully reduce its aggression in the least, at least to the other Titans. Its attacks on Cyborg become much milder, to the point where Cyborg sees them as Pain Bot's way of licking him like an affectionate puppy.
  • Pokémon Speak: "Pain. Pain. Pain." and "All I know is pain."
  • Robot Buddy: To Cyborg.
  • Robotic Torture Device: Brother Blood built him to torture the Titans, and he has a ton of gadgets in him that can torture people.
  • Telescoping Robot: Much like Cyborg, he has all kinds of devices and appendages hidden inside him, all of them used for torture.
  • Token Evil Teammate: Of the Titans' little buddies.
  • Torture Technician: Blood outfitted it with all forms of torture, from childish pranks to painful laser beams.

    Santa Claus
  • A Day in the Limelight: In “The True Meaning of Christmas”, “The Teen Titans Go! Easter Holiday Classic”, “Santa Tried to Steal Halloween”, and “Santa tries to steal Other Holidays”.
  • Bad Santa: Santa is portrayed as a hateful, spiteful, disgusting, and crude old man, who also has villainous tendencies and has made many attempts to destroy the Teen Titans.
    Santa: Garbage children.
  • Catchphrase: "Garbage children."
  • Friendly Enemy: Despite trying to kill them every Christmas, Santa assists Robin and Beast Boy in beating Kid Flash in "The Streak", by joining their team and giving Robin a lesson in leadership.
  • Leitmotif: "All hail the jolly fat man!"
  • Santa Claus: Obviously.

    Tooth Fairy
  • A Day in the Limelight: In “The Tooth Fairy”, “Easter Creeps”, and “The Streak”.
  • Karma Houdini: Her attempt to take over Easter and steal people's teeth ends in her getting a husband.
  • Vocal Dissonance: Has a male voice, but "Easter Creeps" confirms she's female.

Voiced by: Jonathan Adams

  • Big Bad: Of "The Night Begins to Shine 2: You're The One".
  • Knight of Cerebus: He's taken very seriously and is possibly the darkest villain in the show.
  • Vile Villain, Saccharine Show: In a show where even formerly seriously 2003 Teen Titans villains like Slade and Trigon are given more comedic traits, Ultralak especially stands out as being one of the darker and more serious villains in a lighter-hearted series that skews to a younger demographic.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: Ultralak was once the rhythm guitarist of B.E.R. only to become mad with power once he was consumed by it. After being isolated and left alone, he became a tyrant and set out to destroy all music and rule the universe in dark silence.

  • Evil Uncle: He refers to himself as Raven's uncle. However, it is unknown if he's a relative or close acquaintance of Trigon.
  • Expy: He strongly resembles the DC character Spectre/Aztar.
