Mas Y Menos
Robin gave the communicator to Madame Rouge and she showed it to him. How could she do that when the Brain was using it to track down Titans?
When Starfire is flying the T-Ship, her left glove was gone for a moment, then it came back again.
In "Spellbound," the entire team (minus Raven) couldn't defeat Kardiak. Now Beast Boy can defeat him alone?
Response: It was noticed in the episode "The Beast Within" how Beast Boy can adapt to fighting quickly, as seen in the first battle, the Titans knocked him out, but in the second battle, he dodged every attack thrown at him and defeated the Titans. Another reason could be, he was threatened and cornered, his animal instincts probably kicking his fighting skills up a notch allowing him to defeat Kardiac single-handedly, and if you'll notice he turned into a squid when he took him on and probably constricted him to unconsciousness or his fighting skills just simply improved.
The Puppet King seems to have his magic back. How could he when his remote was destroyed?
Robin mentions Kid Flash, even though he never met him or gave him a communicator in any of the episodes we saw.
When Johnny Rancid and Cinderblock are shown attacking Mas Y Menos, Johnny Rancid goes from being in his human form to the form he took in the episode "Fractured." How is that possible if he no longer has Larry the Titan's powers anymore?
At one point in the episode, before the Titans split up, Cyborg's front is missing the gray armor, namely the hatch secluding his powercell.
In one scene, it shows Thunder and Lightning with a communicator, but Robin never gave them one in "Forces of Nature" and he hasn't seen them since to do so.
Why doesn't Beast Boy fly up the mountain as a bird instead of exhausting himself climbing?
Response: He probably would have exhausted himself even more by flying by either slowly hovering with his wings till he reaches the top or spiraling around the mountain to reach the top, those being the only two ways he could have made it with wings.
Where is the Doom Patrol? They are the whole reason the Titans are in this mess, and this is their arch foe. So where are they?
When Beast Boy attacks Kardiak, he becomes a giant squid. How did he get up into the air to attack Kardiak like that?
Why wasn't Argent flying the first time she started getting chased by the droids?
Neither Kitten nor Killer Moth were familiar with what mutated Silkie in "Can I Keep Him?," so how did they mutate the moth Kitten was on?
When Brain is talking about his pieces being in place, it shows Kardiak, but he has no tubes.
When they show a picture of Aqualad swimming through the water, the back of his eyes are white with black pupils, when it should be white pupils and black in the back.
Robin: Calling all Titans, this is a test of our communications system. Is everyone ready?
Kole: We're ready in the north.
Pantha: And in the south.
Mas: Estamos en el oeste.
(Mas Y Menos run to Titans East Tower)
Menos: Y el este!
Beast Boy: I told Robin we shouldn't separate, but he sent me up here and I just climbed up this big mountain and so here's your stupid communicator, and if bad guys come, you know what to do. (Passes out on the ground)
Beast Boy: Great idea, Robin, giving communicators to everyone. Could this Jericho guy live any farther away?
Robin: Beast Boy, we're heading home.
Beast Boy: WAHOO! Race you to the meeting point!
Monsieur Mallah: We can no longer follow the Titans every move.
Brain: We no longer need to.
Robin: Madame Rouge, I thought Hotspot took care of you.
Madame Rouge: You thought wrong.
Argent: (About the communicator) It sort of clashes with my outfit. Does this come in black?
Robin: The Brotherhood of Evil will be defeated.
Brain: No, Robin, it is you who has been defeated. I have captured the king. Your pawns cannot save you. You have lost.
Starfire: You are Argent?
Argent: Who wants to know?
Starfire: Starfire of Tamaran.
Beast Boy: I told Robin we shouldn't have split up!
Cyborg: (To Pantha, who is busy wrestling) Hi, my name is Cyborg and I came here to... (Is tagged by the wrestler that Pantha beat up, and Pantha throws him across the ring) Wooooooooaah!
Robin: Calling all Titans!
This is the second episode that Madame Rouge shapedshifted into Hotspot.
Thunder and Lightning make their first appearance since season 1. They are the only Honorary Titans to be gone for so long.
Killowatt is the only male Titan (besides Beast boy in animal form) who has the ability to fly.
Kole and Jericho dated in the comics.
Herald's real name is Malcolm Arnold "Mal" Duncan.
Killowatt's real name is Charlie Watkins.
Jericho's real name is Joseph William Wilson.
Pantha's real name is Rosabelle Mendez.
Bushido's real name is Ryuko Orsono.
Argent's real name is Antonia Louise "Toni" Monetti.
When this episode first aired in the UK, on June 19th, 2006, it aired without the intro scene before the opening credits.
YTV airdate: June 12, 2006.
Pantha is a wrestler.
Beast Boy, Jericho, The Herald, and Pantha all manage to defeat the villains who come after them in this episode.
Apparently, Kitten gets her revenge on Robin by torturing Starfire with her laser whip.
Cheshire and Speedy: Brief History
In the comic books, Roy harper (Speedy) was sent by the government to arrest Cheshire for nuking Quarac (not a real country), but no one told him he was after a girl. He found Cheshire, only he didn't know it was her, and they fell in love and had a daughter Lian Harper.
Punk Rocket can fly on his guitar.
The Herald's outfit resembles Raven's.
Diane Delano previously played another DC character, Stompa, from Superman: tAS.
The following battles took place in this episode:
• Robin vs. Madame Rouge
• Cyborg vs. Mammoth
• Beast Boy vs. Kardiak
• Raven vs. Kyd Wykyyd & Psimon
• Starfire vs. Kitten & Killer Moth
• Lightning vs. Overload
• Kilowatt vs. Control Freak & Puppet King
• Aqualad vs. Plasmus & Trident
• Jericho vs. Private HIVE & Fang
• Argent vs. General Immortus
• The Herald vs. See-More & Warp
• Bumblebee vs. Angel & Punk Rocket
• Tramm vs. XL Terrestrial
• Thunder vs. Steamroller & The I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R.
• Speedy vs. Cheshire
• Bushido vs. Katarou
• Pantha vs. Adonis & Atlas
• Mas y Menos vs. Johnny Rancid & Cinderblock
• Kole & Gnarrk vs. Gizmo & Billy Numerous
Jericho lives atop a mountain all by himself.
Kid Flash only appears in this episode as part of the compass and on a picture Beast Boy holds up, he does not actually appear in person.
At the end of the episode, all the communicators self destructed and the Titans have no ways of contacting each other.
Steamroller and The I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R. are sent to stop Thunder.
Control Freak and the Puppet King are sent to stop Kilowatt.
See-More and Warp are sent to stop Herald.
Cheshire is sent to stop Speedy.
The winged girl from HIVE and Punk Rocket are sent to stop Bumblebee.
General Immortus and a group of minions are sent to stop Argent.
Each of the Titans goes to give a communicator to a different hero. Starfire goes to Argent, Beast Boy goes to Jericho, Robin goes to Bushido, Cyborg goes to Pantha, and Raven goes to Herald.
Once again the T-Ship is shown split up into 5 pods.
Billy Numerous and Gizmo are sent to stop Kole and Gnarrk.
All of the villains split up to go and hunt down the Titans individually.
Besides mechanical expertise, Tramm apparently has the ability to inflate his muscles.
The villains that didn't appear in this episode were Dr. Light, the Master of Games, Red X, Slade, Mumbo, and Blackfire.
So it seems that the Titans have met up with Kid Flash and they have given him a communicator.
Good guys making an appearance in this episode include: the Teen Titans (Robin, Starfire, Cyborg, Raven, & Beast Boy), the Titans East (Mas y Menos, Speedy, Aqualad, & Bumblebee), Tramm, Jericho, Argent, Bushido, Pantha, Herald, Kole & Gnarrk, Kilowatt, Thunder & Lightning, as well as cameos by Red Star, Kid Flash, Hotspot, and Wildebeest.
Robin, Hotspot, Wildebeest, Speedy, Aqualad, Menos, and Argent have been captured by the Brotherhood of Evil.
Herald is a lot like Raven: he uses magical powers, wears a robe like Raven, and lives in a different dimension.
This is the second time we see the Puppet King.
Powers of the new Titans that are identified:
Argent - Flight and the ability to create energy constructs
Bushido - Expert sword skills
Pantha - Super Strength
The Herald - Can use a horn that opens portals
Jericho - Powers to possess people with eye contact
Kilowatt - Electrical discharges
We see Punk Rocket for the third time.
Robin finds out that he was the cause of all the attacks on the Titans.
Timmy, Teether, and Melvin make a quick cameo in this episode. They can be seen when the giant compass comes on screen with all the Teen and Honorary Titans.
Running Gag: Beast Boy complaining about wanting to go back home.
Wonder Girl is pictured again, this time on the compass.
It appears that Raven and Psimon are evenly matched.
It makes sense that the writers would pair Bushido and Kitarou together, they both come from Japanese background.
It appears that Gnarrk is still afraid of technology.
Robin fights Madame Rouge a second time and, once again, loses.
Johnny Rancid seems to have regained his powers from "Fractured."
In the comic book series, Jericho, the boy who Beast Boy gave a communicator to, was Slade's son.
All the new Titans and old Titans also make appearances in this episode. The only one who doesn't is Terra, who apparently has yet to be revived, since "Aftershock (2)."
The whole time this episode is going on, a metaphor of Chess is being used.
Argent is British, yet was Italian in the comics. It is possible that Argent was made British to try and get rid of the show's anti-British look and try to win back the favor of British audiences, who were put off by "Revolution."
The fact that Argent was found in New Zealand also references the country's connections to the British Commonwealth.
All the Brotherhood of Evil villains appeared in this episode. Except for a few that were seen in the cameo of "Homecoming (2)" and not in any episodes of this season.
Madame Rouge can regenerate her form, even if she is shattered after being frozen.
Villain(s): The Brotherhood of Evil, Johnny Rancid, Trident, Plasmus (in whale form), Angel, Kyd Wykkyd, Psimon, Punk Rocket, Kardiak, Mammoth, Billy Numerous, Kitten, Gizmo, Killer Moth, XL Terrestrial, Cinderblock, Katarou, Cheshire, Atlas, Private HIVE, Fang, Warp, See-More, Control Freak, Puppet King, Adonis (in blue armor), Overload, Steamroller, and The I.N.S.T.I.G.A.T.O.R.
Plasmus can become a whale and swim underwater. This is shown when he and Trident team up to defeat Aqualad.
Just like in the comics, we see that Jericho plays guitar and is mute.
Second appearance of Thunder and Lightning who previously appeared in the episode, "Forces of Nature."
Beast Boy mentions about giving the Titans communicators to Titans East, Kole, Gnarrk, Kid Flash, and Red Star.
We find out what happened to Hotspot and Wildebeest - they were frozen to statues and are the beginning of a collection for the Brotherhood of Evil.
Animated Debut(s): Argent, Bushido, Jericho, Kilowatt, Pantha & The Herald.
Pantha becomes a Teen Titan.
Pantha appears to be friends with Wildebeest.
Sort of a team episode and a little of a Beast Boy episode, but mostly Robin episode.
Titans East return once again for this episode.
"Calling All Titans" is also the title of a CartoonNetwork.com Power Play Teen Titans game.
Kitten With a Whip: Reference
This is an allusion mostly from the movie, Catwoman.
Game of Chess: King and Queen
While picking off each Titan, a white chess piece is knocked off. All the black pieces surround the white king. The black pieces represent the Brotherhood of Evil and the king most likely represents Robin, as he is the leader and the last to be attacked. When Starfire is attacked second to last (Robin being last), the queen is knocked off. King and Queen? Possible Robin/Starfire pairing symbolism.
Kilowatt's blue skin and thunder streaks resemble classic Japanese superhero Inazuman.
Punk Rocket: Guitar
Allusion to Haru-Haruko from FLCL and her ever so magic guitar.
Johnny Rancid: Braking
Johnny Rancid's skidding stop along the highway is taken from the classic anime movie Akira.
Bushido: Upppercut Punch
When Bushido did an uppercut punch to Katarou, it looked like how Ken does it in Street Fighter.
Madame Rouge: Reforming
Madame Rouge reforming sort of has a reference to The Terminator.
Kitten With A Whip
Kitten now has a whip - an obscure reference to the 1964 movie Kitten With a Whip starring Ann-Margaret and John Forsythe, and immortalized on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Brain: Shall we play a game?
Referencing the oft-repeated line spoken by the computer Joshua in the 1983 movie WarGames.
Control Freak: Monsters
We see control Freak bring in monster from "Episode 257-494." They were the Creature from Jones Lake, the Offworld Outlaw, Baron Ryang, and 7-Gorn-7.
Titans: Ambush Montage
When the Brotherhood of Evil attacks all the Titans, it seems exactly like the fall of the Jedi in Star Wars - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith; it is a montage, the background music is sad, and different groups of villains attack in different areas of the world.
