Tamaran is the home planet of Starfire and her older sister Blackfire and millions of others of the Tamaranian race.


Season One

In the episode, "Ghostboy", Starfire said that it was not uncommon to be struck by sudden laser beams from outer space on her home world.

In "Staff Meeting", Starfire said that some Tamaranians are attached to inanimate objects, and are banished from the city and fed to the Glorthnorg.

In "Staring at the Future", a thirty-year older Starfire had become the Queen of Tamaran. Cyborg and Beast Boy visited her to try and get her to see a movie with them and asked if there were any movies on this world, but she said that, as queen, she had too many "responsibilities" and could not come with them.

Season Two

In "Mr Butt", the world appeared twice in flashbacks, showing a five-year-old Starfire and a young Blackfire playing, and how Blackfire had stolen her favorite doll back then.

The planet is shown again in "Tamaranian Vacation", where the Titans wish to visit the world, imagining it to be a wonderful place; due to Starfire's overly sweet personality and positive attitude. The place turns out the be nothing they imagined, from having to breathe in fire-burning oxygen, to simple handshakes starting an all-out war between Tamaraneans and other aliens.

In "More of the Same", Starfire mentioned some type of song all Tamaranians sing on New Year's Eve.

Season Four

In BBSFBDAY!, this planet is mentioned when Starfire explains that she was born on a date which doesn't exist on the calendar of Earth since it has a different orbital trip around the Sun (60190 days/164.79 Earth years) thanks to being the eighth planet from the Sun.

In "Justice League's Next Top Talent Idol Star", this planet is shown in Starfire's flashback to when she was deported to Earth from Tamaran by Blackfire.

It has very little fauna, due to ever-burning effects all over the world. The air (as Beast Boy puts it) is "made out of hot sauce" which ensures that the weak do not survive.

Known Festivals of Tamaran

  • Feast Day (first mentioned in “Parasite”)
  • Kergoff (first mentioned in “Second Christmas”)
  • Day of Clorthog (first mentioned in “Legs”)

Physical Appearances of Inhabitants

The guards closely resemble Starfire: auburn hair, purple and grey uniforms, orange skin and bright green eyes.

Powers and abilities of Inhabitants

  • Feline Physiology: In the DC Comics the people of Tamaran evolved from a feline alien race which is most likely what Starfire's association with cats is referencing at.

  • Speed: Tamaranians can travel ten times faster than the speed of light, granting them the ability of time.
  • Superhuman Strength: Even the strongest humans are no match for Tamaranians' strength, as they are able to smash through concrete walls and lift cars with ease.
  • Superhuman Durability: Many injuries that would kill a normal human have little to no effect on Tamaranians, including crushing, getting shot, and even radiation.
