Slade sends a team of robotic commandos to steal a high-tech chip. The Titans stop the robbery, but then a mysterious new bad guy called Red X tries to steal the same chip. With Robin following a Slade lead on the other side of town, the four other Titans are left to fight Red X. It will be tough, for this mysterious masked villain seems to know just how to disable each of them.moreless
When Starfire accidentally activates Robin's hologram, it is not at all similar to the original. It does not chase, it does not point, and the original hologram did not flicker.
When Cyborg grabs' Red X (Robin) by the cape and Robin is yelling for the team to stop Slade, his right glove is missing the X symbol.
After Robin tells the team that he went to the library and saw Red X, when Cyborg grabs Beast Boy's shirt, there is no circuitry in the blue part of his arm.
After the Sladebot blocks off Robin's path in the sewer with his gun, the gun disappears until the robot battles Starfire.
When Starfire accidentally activates the hologram, it repeats Robin's words, then pauses long enough to let Starfire put ther hand through, then he says it again in regular intervals. Twice would be reasonable if they didn't go, but over and over again would be obvious.
When Robin says, "I'm fine. Get X. Go," and they go to the shot of the Titans, Raven's hood is down.
Why couldn't Raven just pull the X cover on her face off with telekinesis? She doesn't always need to speak to activate her magic. In fact, she could have just
THOUGHT the words in her mind instead of holding it in. Why didn't she do that?
How did Robin change so fast while running?
The first time Red X takes off his mask, it is a rigid covering which he pulls forward off his face. The second time, it is a cloth mask which he pulls off over his head.
When the Titans find out Red X is Robin, and Cyborg grabs his cape of the Red X costume, Robin tells him to let go so he can catch Slade. When Robin gets to Slade, he was in his regular 'Robin' clothes instead of the Red X costume.
When Robin knocks Slade over, and he lets go of the chips, there are two blue ones and one red one, but no green one.
Slade: Robin, I thought we had a deal.
Robin: Sorry... I have a strict rule against giving stolen technology to psychos.
Slade: How very noble of you... But stealing in order to trap me... that wasn't so noble.
Cyborg: (During their second encounter with Red X) You're gonna have to learn some new tricks, dog!
Beast Boy: (After a robot stepped on his tongue) That tasted so nasty...
Cyborg: (After crashing three robots with a computer) Amazing what you can do with computers these days.
Robin: (Hanging upside down, to a robot, which wants to steal a chip) Tell Slade if he wants this, he can come and get it himself! (Kicks the robot away)
Red X: Good. (Takes off the mask and reveals Robin) It's about time we met face to face.
Cyborg: I've adjusted my ocular implant to scan at multipule sub-harmonics in the Eumspectrome.
Beast Boy: (Confused) Okay... do you come with subtitles?
Cyborg: My eye should spot him even if he's invisible.
Starfire: STOP! Release him! He is -
Robin: (Takes off mask) It's me!
(Cyborg, Raven, & Beast Boy stare at him, astonished)
Beast Boy: Dude.
Raven: What? Robin.
Robin: Come on! Slade's getting away!
Beast Boy: (After he saves Raven from Slade's robot) You owe me big time, you owe me big time! (Robot is about to shoot him, Raven saves him) Heh, guess we can call it even?
Robin: I had no idea Red X would pose such a threat, I shoud've been there.
Beast Boy: You bet you should've been there, look what he did to my doo! I'm looking at two months of bad hair days!
Raven: (Big X across her mouth) MM mmmm mmm MMMMM!
Beast Boy: I don't know, Raven, that's kind of a good look for you.
Cyborg: (Getting ready to take off the X) Hold still.
(Beast Boy & Starfire both shriek loudly)
Raven: (Holds in pain) Oww. Even if you had been there, it wouldn't have made any difference.
Cyborg: The dude knew how to bring each of us down, I guarantee he had a gadget with your name on it.
Starfire: Agreed. You need not feel guilt. We are undamaged.
Beast Boy: (Pointing to his hair) HELLO?!
Starfire: Mostly undamaged. And we are all eager to learn what you have dicovered about Slade.
Beast Boy: So, my fellow couch potatoes, what'll it be? Super Ninja Showdown 8? Or Maniac Fury? Attack of the Protozoids?
Raven: (Sarcastically) Gee, they both sound soooooo good.
Cyborg: Yeah, it's really hard to pick. Wanna watch 'em both?!
Starfire: Perhaps Robin would enjoy potatoeing the couch with us? Tell me is he -
Beast Boy: In the exact same place he's been since his little chat session with Slade? Umm... yeah!
(Red X has pulled Beast Boy away from a train)
Beast Boy: Dude, did you just save me?
(Red X kicks him in the stomach)
Robin: Whatever you're planning, Slade, it's over!
Slade: On the contrary, Robin... it's just begun.
Robin: You wanna yell at me, too? Everyone else has, and I can't blame them...
Starfire: I do not wish to yell, merely to understand... Robin, why did you not tell us the truth?
Robin: I needed to fool Slade. If you guys knew it was me under that mask, you guys would have held back. Doesn't matter anyway, Slade figured it out, and I haven't figured anything out about him.
Starfire: That is not true, whoever Slade is, you two... are similar. He did not trust you, and you did not trust us. (Leaves)
Slade: Trust can be easy to destroy, but it takes time to build.
Raven: I can't believe I'm saying this, but Beast Boy is right.
Starfire: Robin? I am wondering if you might wish to -
Robin: No! Thanks, but I need to figure out why Slade wanted that chip.
Starfire: Agreed, and perhaps if you were to take a break, the answer would be easier to -
Robin: I can't! You almost got hurt, next time it could be worse. He's planning something, I have to find out what.
Starfire: But, Robin, I am sure that -
(Robin slams the door in her face)
Robin: You... saved me?
Slade: I'm not through with you yet.
This episode along with "Switched", "Deep Six", "Mad Mod", "Car Trouble" and "The Apprentice, Part 1 and 2" was released on DVD as Teen Titans: Switched.
After the team got back from the Slade mission, Robin was all alone by himself, comtemplating his life as a hero.
We finally see what Slade looks like, out of the shadows.
The movie "Super Ninja Showdown 8" is something like Xiaolin Showdown, even though Xiaolin Showdown and Teen Titans are both an CN.
First appearance of Slade robots.
Look Hard: The wanted paper clipping of Mumbo shows his original character design.
When Robin (Red X) saved Beast Boy, he said, "I'm not through with you." And then when Slade saved Robin he said the same thing. This shows that Slade was actually watching the cameras at the metro.
Look Hard: When you see Slade on the screen the first time, after Robin took down the Sladebot, Slade's eye is gray with a darker gray/black inside with white on the outside. But later, it is just a black dot like usual.
Opener: The Titans face off against some Sladebots to defend a valuable chip.
The chips were just a lure.
Look Hard: Among the wanted paper clippings, you can briefly see Mumbo, Jinx, Dr. Light, Plasmus, Cinderblock, The Puppet King (very hard to see), and a H.I.V.E. symbol.
Towards the end, when Slade and Robin are fighting, the words in Chinese on the back say "Kan Man Hwa," which basically translates as "See (Read) Comics." in Traditional Chinese script.
The first character, 'Kan', contains an extra stroke at the top, as compared to the original character.
Villain(s): Slade & Red X (partially Red X).
Only appearance of Robin as X. So far the other appearance of X is unexplained. All that was told was that he took the X outfit.
Kids' WB! airdate: November 29, 2003.
Beast Boy: All work and no movies makes me a dull Beast Boy.
Beast Boy says, "All work and no movies makes me a dull Beast Boy." It is like in the movie, The Shining. His story says, "All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy."
Beast Boy's Video Suggestion: Godzilla
The second video that Beast Boy suggests is clearly a spoof of Godzilla, all the way down to his trademarked roar.
Red X: X... Red X
First off, the way it's said is a reference to the famous "Bond... James Bond." Second, Red X in and of itself is kinda an odd name... It's what you see when a picture doesn't load on the internet. It's some nice sybolism, even if it's hard to explain well...
