After the Titans take away her cloak as a joke, Raven finds it fun to use her legs. Meanwhile, Cyborg becomes dark and sarcastic after Raven's cloak gets stuck on his head.
The episode starts with Raven meditating peacefully, but she's interrupted by the crime alert, which the other Titans turn into a dance party. Raven gets annoyed and asks for some quiet, but she's ignored. Fed-up, she withdraws into her cloak. The Titans then say Raven is never in the mood for any fun, and that she hates everything. Starfire theorizes it is her cloak which makes her this way, but Raven scoffs at the idea.
Later, as a joke, Robin sneaks into the bathroom while Raven is in the shower, and takes her cloak. He shows it to the others and puts it on, embracing it and soon, the other Titans wear it and find themselves acting more like Raven. Eventually, Raven comes in and sees Cyborg with her cloak and the Titans freak out, particularly Cyborg when he can't get it off. Raven walks in (much to everyone's shock since they've only ever seen anything but her eyes and mouth) and finds them with her cloak. To everyone's surprise she starts showing emotions, telling them how angry she is and kicking Robin repeatedly in the face when he annoys her. Starfire enjoys Raven's newfound personality; and Beast Boy has developed a fetish of her legs; but Cyborg leaves, retracting his legs and using hover jets instead to go off and meditate.
The Titans start dancing again, and Raven joins in this time, all of which annoys Cyborg (as Beast Boy's jaw drops watching her dance). During a crime alert, the Titans beat the Hive Five and Raven fights Jinx successfully using a series of powerful kicks leaving bruises on her face. Jinx holds raven's legs apart but Raven closes in her legs to crush Jinx's face and then Jinx is kicked away by Raven, which impresses Beast Boy--during which Cyborg tries to be more like Raven, firing sonic blasts at the villains while chanting Raven's mantra as if he were trying to use magic. Beast Boy jokes that it isn't magic and Cyborg almost blasts him. Raven later changes her normal attire into a flashy tight golden suit with matching high-heel boots (which the Titans are all surprised, Beast Boy melts and swoons at the sight of her new look), and begins calling herself Lady Legasus. She starts fighting a lot of villains, but her ego gets to her and decides on going solo from the Titans. Easily defeating villains with her powerful legs and even building a statue to them.
Back at Titans Tower, Cyborg still tries to use Raven's powers which leads the other Titans to tease him. Cyborg gets angry and starts attacking the others, the cloak now covering his torso with several mechanical pincers reaching out from under it and grabbing them. Meanwhile, Lady Legasus walks down the street revealing in her fame--and showing off by using her bare feet to sign autographs--when she suddenly sees on the news in a TV sales window that Cyborg is attacking her ex-teammates via her dark powers in her cloak. Lady Legasus and Cyborg have a short fight. In the end, she becomes the victor in removing her cloak from Cyborg's head and puts it back on, realizing that no one else can control the power of its dark influence. Beast Boy gets upset when Raven puts her cloak back on, covering her legs. Raven then walks away from him, but shuts her eyes, looks back, and smiles (via Terra-ized) and reveals her leg one more time, just for him. The episode ends with Beast Boy morphing into a dog and howling in delight.

- Robin breaks the fourth wall by looking to the camera and shrugging when he heard Raven singing in the shower.
- This marks the first time Raven's feet have ever been seen, though her bare toes were briefly shown jutting out from her ripped socks in "La Larva de Amor". This is mostly because, in the original Teen Titans show, Raven was never once seen without her boots-- though in the episode "Wavelength", her left foot was shown briefly due to Beast Boy regurgitating her boot.
- Also in the original series, the soles of Raven's boots are grey with black lines, while in this series, her boot soles have skulls.

- This episode shows that Raven has the ability to successfully hold a pencil between her toes and write with her foot.
- Unlike in the original series, Raven in this show wears socks with black flats, but not in her Lady Legasus boots. Raven is known to wear many different colors of socks, including her normal purple, blue knee socks, red knee socks, magenta knee socks, and white calf socks.

- Next to "Matched", this episode marks the second time where Raven directly expresses her emotions.
- Raven is the second Titan to officially leave the Teen Titans. Starfire was about to leave in "Starliar" and Beast Boy left in "You're Fired!", though Beast Boy was dismissed from his job and kicked out.
- This is the second time Beast Boy wears Raven's cloak, which he first wore in "Meatball Party", as well as the second time Starfire wore Raven's cloak, who first wore it in "Laundry Day".
- The ending of this episode shows that Raven's secret feelings for Beast Boy are still strong, despite the failed attempt of marrying him in "Matched."
- As shown in this episode and the episode "Terra-ized", whenever Raven is trying to deny her feelings for Beast Boy she always goes "psssh" then does a secret smile.
- When Cyborg is meditating, Brainiac's face is seen on the couch.
- The Riddler question mark is seen yet again.

- One of Lady Legasus's fangirls is also one of Robin's fangirls.
- Raven's line "I've got legs... and I know how to use 'em!" is a reference to the lyric from the ZZ Top song "Legs", which shares its title with the episode.
- English synthpop group Art Of Noise also has a song with the same name.
- Raven's legs resemble Chun Li's legs from the Street Fighter series, who also uses her legs as her primary weapon. In addition, Raven's leg attacks also resemble Chun-Li's.
- The amulet that fastens Raven's cloak, and the music that plays when it is shown, is a reference to The Secret of Nimh.

- The song that Raven dances to is similar to the song "Freeze Frame" by the J. Geils band.
- The speedy sound effect of the newscaster on the television that Raven watches is a Warner Bros. stock sound effect used in the Looney Tunes cartoons.
- The comic book of Lady Legasus that Raven signs has DC written on the corner, as well as Darkseid on the front cover.
- Cyborg could have easily taken the cloak off if he unattached his head as seen in many episodes.
- Raven is now perfectly capable of walking on her feet, even though she had great difficulty in "No Power".
- Raven is actually capable of doing virtually anything with her legs and feet, a sharp contrast from her struggles in "No Power".
- It's possible she's had some practice during this time.
- In "Laundry Day", Starfire wore Raven's cloak and didn't have any effects to it at all, as well as Beast Boy in "Meatball Party".

- Beast Boy seems to have some sort of thing for legs, according to this episode. He never fauns over Terra's legs, however, despite them always being exposed in shorts.
- Or it could be the reason why Beast Boy isn't attracted to Terra's legs is maybe because hers don't have the feminine appeal and shape like Raven's do.
- Beast Boy being obsessed with Raven's legs.
- Raven being cool and peppy without the cloak.
