Tim Drake (known as Robin, Dark Robin or Red Robin) is a minor character in Teen Titans Go! who made a debut in "The Best Robin." In addition, he is a current member of Team Robin. He is voiced by Scott Menville.
There is not too much of a difference between Tim and Dick Grayson - their costumes are the same and yet different; Tim Drake's is red and yellow with a black cape, while Dick has green gloves and pants. His hair is combed downwards, and his mask looks more sinister and serious.
As a normal human being, Tim Drake does not have any powers, like Robin. However, Tim seems to have the same abilities Robin has.
- Peak Human Strength: Surpasses the average human in terms of strength, endurance, and stamina.
- Skilled Hand-to-Hand Combat: Like all the Robins, Tim is skilled in hand-to-hand combat.
- Pain Tolerance: Is able to dislocate and relocate his elbow with minimal discomfort.
- Masseur: This seems to be a trait original to himself, he is able to give massages, as he gave both Raven and Starfire one.
- The Best Robin (debut)
- In the end credits for the episode "The Best Robin", Tim is referred to as "Dark Robin".
- Tim Drake's design seems to be inspired by his appearance from Young Justice: Invasion.
- Tim Drake is the third Robin as the first one being Dick Grayson and the second being Jason Todd.
- This is the second time that Scott Menville voiced Tim Drake, The first time was in the 2003 video game Batman: Rise of Sin Tzu.

- In the DCAU, Tim Drake is based primarily on Jason Todd.
- In the bonus feature "Comics Creations: From Comics to Cartoon" (from the Teen Titans: Divide and Conquer DVD), a producer stated that the Robin in the original series was based on Tim Drake, In fact, Robin's personality and overall appearance in the original series is based on Tim, In 2008 an official DC website titled DC HeroZone confirms him to be Tim Drake, and for a number of years, the website DC Beyond would refer to the Teen Titans version of Robin as "Robin III".
- However, Teen Titans Go! (both the comics based on the original series, and this series) counters this, referencing him as Dick Grayson. Not too big of a deal, but it still is a little controversy.
- The original Teen Titans Go! comic series is, however, of questionable continuity, due to Cyborg's mother having been confirmed to be dead in the series, while the comic spin-off states she's alive.
- The 2015 video game LEGO Dimensions, used the original Teen Titans TV series Robin variation for Tim Drake.
- He is good at massaging people as shown when he was massaging Starfire and Raven.
