Classic Teen Titans antagonists

Voiced by: Hynden Walch

  • Adaptational Heroism: 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.
  • Affably Evil: She's a pretty cool person deep down.
  • All Women Are Lustful: She is obsessed with Robin's butt and likes to constantly remark about it.
  • Big Sister Bully: To Starfire, initially.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She would try to be in Starfire's life, but only to crush her.
  • Cain and Abel: Cain to Starfire's Abel.
  • 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.
  • Expy: To X-Men's villain Deathbird, who predates 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. What's more, she's also similar to Goku Black from Dragon Ball Super in terms of design, and especially abilities ever since Dragon Ball Super's Future Trunks story arc was in full swing.
  • 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.
  • Heel–Face Turn: After realizing what a terrible sister she's been, she wants to do better.
  • 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.
  • Jerkass: Before the Heel–Face Turn, this was pretty much the only way of describing her.
  • Love Redeems: When the Titans tell her that Starfire loved her despite her evilness, she decides to be a better sister.
  • 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.

    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.
  • Big Bad: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    Brother Blood 
Voiced by: John DiMaggio

  • 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.
  • 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.

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

    Control Freak 
Voiced by: Alexander Polinsky

  • 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.
  • 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 "No Fourth Wall", 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")

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    The H.I.V.E. Five
  • Adaptational Heroism: 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.
  • 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.
  • 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".
  • 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.
  • Big Bad: They are the main antagonists in this series, being the most recurrent villains.
  • 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.
  • Evil Counterpart: To the Teen Titans as a whole.
  • Harmless Villain: To parallel the Titans being incompetent heroes.

Billy Numerous

Voiced by: Lauren Tom

  • Ocular Gushers: When she cries about her forced breakup with Cyborg, her tears are so powerful they end up embedding Gizmo in the wall.
  • Perky Goth: Wears dark clothing and has pale skin, and is quite enthusiastic.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Blueberry pie.


  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Operation Tin Man" and "The H.I.V.E. Five".
  • 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.


  • The Quiet One: After two seasons he finally speaks in "The H.I.V.E. Five".

    Killer Moth 
Voiced by: Scott Menville

Voiced by: Tara Strong

  • 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.

    Mad Mod 

    Mother Mae Eye 
Voiced by: Billie Hayes

  • Adaptational Attractiveness: Her real for 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.
  • 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.
  • 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

  • Nice Hat: His magician top hat.
  • Stage Magician: In this series, he is entirely this, and possesses no real magic whatsoever.

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

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.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Like in the original series.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Ear Worm: In-universe example. "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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Who Wears Short Shorts?: VERY short ones.


  • 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.
  • Affably Evil: Usually evil incarnate, in this adaptation he's a loving (if still quite evil) father who is merely disappointed that Raven doesn't want to succeed him as demon overlord.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 and Robin, at least, chose decent upgrades.
  • Why Couldn't You Be Different?: Just wants Raven to take over a dimension or two.

Voiced by: Will Arnett

Other DC antagonists


  • Big Bad: Of "Two-Parter".
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He has made a number of cameos as Easter Eggs before officially appearing in person. Most notably as a plushie that sits on the side of the Titans' couch.
  • Near Villain Victory: He did succeed in capturing the Justice League, but didn't anticipate the Titans (dressed as the Justice League), arriving on the scene.
  • Physical God: Well he is Darkseid.
  • Rogues-Gallery Transplant: Darkseid is a Superman or Justice League villain. Justified that he was fighting the Justice League, with the Teen Titans barging in outside of their own rogues gallery.
  • Villain of Another Story: He's an enemy of the Justice League, with the Titans having a run-in with him.
  • Vocal Dissonance: He initially speaks in his traditional grave voice, before he takes a throat lozenge and then sounds exactly like "Weird Al" Yankovic.

    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.
  • Badass Normal: Despite not having any superpowers, she's able to curb-stomp the Titans just by insulting them and came close to killing Raven.
  • 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.
  • Break Them by Talking: Her trademark strategy in this series is to fire insults at her enemies that touch on sensitive areas.
  • Boobs of Steel: A physically dominant fighter, who has the most prominent bust in the series.
  • 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.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's easily one of the top fighters in this series, easily surpassing the Titans.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Much like Raven.
  • Evil Albino: She has red eyes, white hair, and is more than willing to endanger innocents without an ounce of remorse.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Downplayed example. While Rose has plenty of snarky moments, she's still one of the few villains to break completely break the Titans and was more than willing to kill Raven in cold blood.
  • Manipulative Bitch: Her skill at wielding insults is second to none, and is also quite proficient at word play that leaves Robin utterly flustered.
  • Not So Different: She is remarkably alike Raven in personality, allowing them to become friends.
  • One Woman Army: She took out a scad of guards on her own, and all of the Titans at once.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: She has naturally red eyes and is among the most competent, dangerous characters in the show.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: The first thing she does after Robin shouts "Titans, GO!"?
    Rose: Yeah right, more like "Titans Go...away."
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: She's an evil albino who has no qualms about killing.

Teen Titans Go! original antagonists

Voiced by: Scott Menville

Voiced by: David Kaye

  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He seems to be fond of Raven. However, it doesn't mean that he'd give up the Titans' souls for her.
  • 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.
  • Grim Reaper: The personification of it.

Voiced by: Jeff Bennett

  • Sadist Teacher: A driving instructor who uses giving permit tests as a cover up for having a getaway driver.

    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."
  • 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.
  • 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.
