--Robin throughout the series.


Richard "Dick" Grayson, most commonly known as Robin, is the former protégé of Batman, as well as the leader of the Teen Titans, and one of the five main protagonists of Teen Titans Go!. Desperate to lead the best superhero team ever, his perfectionism and obsessive controlling have made him quite unstable at times.

The voice actor for Robin in the 2003 Teen Titans, Scott Menville, has returned to voice the character.

History

Born to a family of circus performers, Dick Grayson had a tough childhood growing up. As seen in "Dude Relax", the carnival animals used to bully him nonstop, and, even worse, his parents were killed in a tragic acrobat accident. The mega-rich playboy Bruce Wayne, otherwise known as Batman, adopted Dick and made him his sidekick, Robin (also known as the "Boy Wonder").[1]

Having been mistreated by Batman, Robin left Gotham and arrived at Jump City in the episode "Flashback". But after realizing that he was a useless loser without powers, the happy-go-lucky hero set out to start a team of teenage superheroes—of which HE would be the leader. Unfortunately, four hopeless recruits enraged Robin so much that several other enlistees deemed him an incompetent leader. Lead by Kid Flash, they mutinied against him, tossing Robin out of his own Tower and into the streets. While he initially wanted to call it quits, the four failures from earlier convinced Robin to embrace his anger and use it to reclaim his team. And after breaking Kid Flash's knee, Robin and his new friends retook the Tower—and the Teen Titans!

Intent on never losing his team again, Robin has since then ruled the Titans with an iron fist, punishing any disloyalty or laziness he sees.

Personality

"Robin is the slightly power-mad, perfectionist leader of the group whose main complaint is that the other Titans just won't do what he says."[2]

For Robin, anything less than perfection is absolutely unacceptable, and so his far-from-flawless team is constantly putting him on edge. Despite his authoritarian leadership, the Titans often disregard Robin's orders, exasperating him to the max. His worst fear is losing control, and that is exactly what happened when Beast Boy briefly hijacked the team in "Gorilla". Every iota of power is lustfully coveted by Robin, out of immense insecurities that are all stemmed from Batman's mistreatment and negligence.

Insanity: Level 5000

Not only does Robin live on the borderline of insanity—he often crosses over, traveling deep into crazy land whenever he does not get his way, this causes him to become extremely violent and sometimes murderous as well. In "Yearbook Madness" for example, Robin plummeted into instability and multiple personality disorder just because his picture was barely featured in the yearbook. Yet, he even had some form of love sick nature, in addition, his hopeless crush on Starfire has led to many despicable deeds, such as when he crushed Speedy's head out of jealousy in the comic "Bored of the Dance". His obsession is also implied through his constant need to overcome Batman's shadow. All these traits display his immense inferiority underneath his superiority facade.

Robin is also arrogant, and sometimes he acknowledges that only him, and his team are the best out of all superheroes, but mostly himself, with the only superheroes who he acknowledge to be greater than him, and his faction are the Justice League.

It is noted that Robin can never have supernatural powers, for because, giving him powers would make him become extremely power-hungry and become a total megalomaniac. As it was shown in the episode "The Avogodo" Robin was corrupted by the powers of the Mexican food that his teammates presents to him, and develops a strong obsession in having more of these food so he can grow stronger and protect the world, only to later on become a supervillain that plans to replace every last food in the world as Avocado, and would even kill his own comrades just for that goal. As long as he remains powerless, he is more of a highly insecure wimp who has to rely on his powered friends to take care of his messes.

While Robin's harsh discipline and abuse are usually counterproductive, overall he is a well-intentioned individual. No one has dedication to fight for justice quite as much as Robin, making him a very well-qualified leader of the Teen Titans. Also, as long as he's not being idiotic and unhinged, he can be part of the fun among the team.

Physical Appearance

From weak, spineless loser...

...to formidable superhero (with epic background flames for added effect).

Although Robin originally kept his dorky Silver Age costume, his four teammates took the liberty to make him look cooler in "Flashback". Robin's new suit consists of a Kevlar-lined red shirt that sports his "R" logo as well as a couple of yellow lines on its centre. Instead his traditional speedo, he now wears green skin-tight pants, along with metal-tipped boots. Around his waist, Robin has a utility belt full of gadgets, stocked with everything from grapple guns to smoke bombs. His green gloves cover his embarrassing baby hands, and he wears a black and yellow cape. Rarely if ever are Robin's eyes seen; he keeps them hidden behind his mysterious mask. To finish off his look, Robin spikes his black hair, slathering lavish amount of hair gel into it every morning. Despite Robin's rad appearance, the other Titans constantly make fun of him for his short stature.

Powers and Abilities

Born as a powerless human (and never having suffered through a gruesome yet power-giving accident like Cyborg or Beast Boy have), Robin has to rely on his acrobatic prowess and crime-fighting equipment to even stand a chance against Jump City's villains. Nevertheless, he is usually utterly destroyed in combat.
