The Tween Titans, which is the tween version of the Teen Titans, consisting of five superheroes named Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, and Beast Boy, respectively, are a group of superheroes in the second generation of the DC Super Hero Girls franchise. They are a team of pre-teen superheroes led by Robin. The other members are Starfire, Beast Boy, Cyborg and Raven.
While they are usually going from a selfless and serious group of teenager heroes from the first incarnation who care about protecting Metropolis and who cared about their friends and family deeply, sadly, in the second incarnation of DC Super Hero Girls, sadly, they were flanderized so badly in this second incarnation of DC Super Hero Girls and ruined the Teen Titans from the first incarnation of DC Super Hero Girls.
Why They Also Should GO! Away Now
- Similar to the Teen Titans from Teen Titans Go!, they suffer from flanderization in this incarnation (except Bumblebee, who's not part of the team, and Miss Martian, who is absent from this incarnation), and they appear to be more flanderized than they were in Teen Titans Go!, going from a selfless and serious group of teenager heroes from the first incarnation who also care about protecting Metropolis and who cared about their friends and family deeply to kids who bully their babysitters, Jessica and Karen, do dangerous stuff for fun and are troublemaking brats to the point where they shockingly make their Teen Titans Go! counterparts seem more likable by comparison (with the one and only exception of Raven which is really notable).
- Robin, although not the same Robin as the first incarnation (Dick Grayson is the Robin in this incarnation, not Damian Wayne), so just focusing on his similarities to Teen Titans Go!'s Robin, he has gone from a serious, intelligent, skilled, and kind teenage leader to a kid who is a very rude, immature, egotistical, and bratty jerk who likes to mess with the Superhero Girls and likes to be the center of attention.
- Similar to Teen Titans Go!'s Starfire, the Starfire in this incarnation went from being a kind-hearted, selfless, and beautiful alien teenager from the first incarnation who cares about her friends and helps them out, and also cares for her family, and even her sister Blackfire, in which they had a friendly rivalry, and have actually bonded in that show compared to their Teen Titans (as well as their Teen Titans Go!'s) counterparts, into a kid who is a hyperactive, destructive, careless and bratty troublemaker who has a candy obsession.
- Similar to Teen Titans Go!'s Raven (but worse, since Teen Titans Go!'s Raven is still tolerable and also the least bad for the most part), the Raven in this incarnation went from a caring, selfless, dark, and mature teenage girl from the first incarnation who cares about her friends and helps them out, and even cares about her dad, Trigon, who she actually bonded with in that show compared to their Teen Titans's (as well as their Teen Titans Go!) counterparts, into a kid who is a depressed, nerdy, and careless troublemaker who is sarcastic in a bad way.
- Similar to Teen Titans Go!'s Cyborg, the Cyborg in this incarnation went from an intelligent, nice, mature, and serious half-man, half-robot teenager from the first incarnation who cares about his friends and helps them out, into a kid who is a annoying, immature, jerkish, and idiotic troublemaker who cares less about being a hero and more about being cool.
- Similar to Teen Titans Go!'s Beast Boy, the Beast Boy in this incarnation went from a from a fun-loving, immature (though sometimes mature when the time calls for it), light-hearted prankster teenager from the first incarnation who cares about his friends and helps them out, into a kid who is a selfish, lazy, dumb, and completely immature slacker who usually prefers laziness over saving the world.
- Missed opportunity: This (otherwise amazing) show to a lot of people could have gotten these Teen Titans to have their personas from the 2003 series (to make them different than their first DC Super Hero Girls's incarnation), making it a missed opportunity for the Titans in this show.
- They are shown as heroes when they are shown antagonizing the other heroes, even when they didn't do anything wrong to begin with.
- They don't fight any crime at all, which doesn't make them heroes at all.
- At least the Teen Titans Go!'s Titans are seen fighting crime, doing good things and are heroes oftentimes, but the Tween Titans don’t do anything good at all.
- The episode the team is in, "#TweenTitans", they were immature, jerkish and unsympathetic, even, since they have better homes, lifestyles and caring families compared to the Teen Titans Go!'s Titans, they are considered not sympathetic at all.
- This is especially true with Robin, when comparing the Teen Titans Go!'s Robin with him, as at least the Teen Titans Go!'s Robin can be at times very sympathetic, while this Robin will most likely be never sympathetic.
- They are supposed to be between the ages of 8-12 years old, but they have the mentality of 4-year olds.
- The Tween Titans are often unnecessarily loud.
- Their gags and jokes are extremely low-brow, flat, stale, idiotic, gross, irritating and completely unfunny.
- They can even rival the 2018 version of Chilly Willy from the 2018 series from the Woody Woodpecker franchise which is considered by a lot of people to be better than the Woody Woodpecker 2017 film which is a part of the Woody Woodpecker franchise, as they both come from a good (but DC Super Hero Girls is considered amazing for a lot of people) spin-off TV show, but were flanderized horribly and are hated now.
- They are even sadistic to each other, such as beating each other up and being straight-up abusive with no remorse whatsoever. A good example of this portrayal is when they played with a piñata, but Robin starts hitting the other kids, who are also his teammates, and they all fight.
- They also straight up don’t care for each other, unlike the Teen Titans Go!'s Teen Titans who at least care for each other deep down, and have some heartwarming moments oftentimes. But the Tween Titans don't have this at all.
- They clearly don't respect authority at all, as they mess with their babysitters, Karen and Jessica, don’t listen to them, taking their power locket and power ring, and even tie them up upside down over a pit.
- While Tara Strong reprises her role as Raven from Teen Titans/Teen Titans Go! and the original 2015 web series, Scott Menville, Hynden Walch, Khary Payton, and Greg Cipes, for some reason, didn't return to voice Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, and Beast Boy in this show and were replaced by Keith Ferguson, Grey Griffin, Phil LaMarr, and Kari Wahlgren, resulting in their voices being annoying, especially Starfire, similar to the fact that Hynden Walch shouts 1/2 of her lines when recording her lines for Starfire in Teen Titans Go!, and it isn't helped by the fact that Hyden Walch is her original voice actor in most of the media as of 2003 and it is a thing. This is not helping the fact that these are four well known and beloved people, and they are normally great voice actors, but their voices as Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, and Beast Boy are loud and screechy. Doesn't this ring a bell in another piece of media from another company?
- Much like Lois Lane in "#BreakingNews", the episode, "#TweenTitans", had ruined the Tween Titan’s reputation as characters in this show as it's not only the titans (except Robin)’ only appearance in the show, unlike Lois who appeared in "#CruzControl" with her personality improved after her worst episode ("#CruzControl"), but their actions in this episode alone are one of the main reasons why this incarnation of the Teen Titans received most negative reception from many fans (with some people calling the Teen Titans' incarnation in this show as bad or worse than their incarnation in Teen Titans Go!).
- While the character designs used for them are pretty good and pretty cute, however, the designs used for them come off across as weird.
Redeeming Qualities They Also Shouldn't GO! Away
- Karen (Bumblebee) is the only member of the first incarnation's Teen Titans that's not with them in this incarnation, and is with the much better Super Hero Girls team.
- She's also still not flanderized, and still remains a lovable teenage superhero as usual.
- She has also stood up against the Tween Titans for their actions.
- Raven is considered the least bad of the team, since she at least cleans up the team’s mess and restores the mansion back to normal in her sleep at the end of the episode.
- For young kids, they are at least powerful (and maybe on the same level as the Teen Titans Go!'s Teen Titans).
- Despite looking weird, their character designs are good and pretty cute, which fits for them since they are kids in this incarnation, despite WTSAGAN!#15.
- Tara Strong (who reprises her role as Raven as mentioned above in WTSAG!AN#13) is the only voice actor that does the best job voicing her character, as she still does a great job voicing Raven.
- While annoying and irritating most of the time as mentioned above in WTSAG!AN!#13, at least Keith Ferguson's performance as Robin is okay, and thankfully isn't as irritating as Cyborg's, Beast Boy's, and Starfire's voices.
- Despite being loud and screechy, especially Starfire's voice as mentioned above in WTSAG!AN#13, Keith Ferguson, Grey Griffin, Phil LaMarr, and Kari Wahlgren did do passable jobs voicing Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, and Beast Boy respectively.
- They at least only caused chaos at Robin's home, unlike Teen Titans Go!'s Titans who usually cause chaos wherever they go.
- They do get their comeuppance at the end of the episode, when Karen and Jessica trick Cyborg into opening Karen's power locket, which gave Karen her powers and got Jessica her power ring back to set her free, then they defeat the kids and put them to sleep.
- And at least they are not karma houdini at all, unlike Teen Titans Go!'s Teen Titans.
- Excluding Robin, the Titans only appeared once in the show.
- At least Robin only appears four times in the show, which is way less than Teen Titans Go!'s Robin in his own show (Teen Titans Go!).
- They can be hilarious at times, despite WTASG!AN#7.
