Wouldn't it make more sense if Billy's symbol on his suit is a MULTIPLICATION symbol? His name is Billy Numerous, this would make A LOT more sense.
Billy's clones seem to possess a colossal amount of strength, as they are able to lift objects that no human could lift alone. Yet, they seem powerless to physically stop Cyborg in any way.
In most episodes, Cyborg is seen in the Titans' kitchen eating breakfast, generally made by Beast Boy. But in his room is an eggs-and-bacon maker, which obviously serves him breakfast. So why put up with Beast Boy's tofu cooking?
How could the holograms inflict damage among the enemies? And how were the Raven clones all able to use the telekinesis if only the real Raven should have been abe to do so?
How was a group of Billy's able to lift an entire BRIDGE? Even if he had multiplied, there is no way he could have had all that strength.
Cyborg starts sounding like a robot after he announces that he deactivated his systems to power the Max 7. Later on, in a fight scene between the Billy's who are lifting the bridge, you can clearly hear his regular voice.
At the very end of the episode, when you see Cyborg sleeping in his room, for a minute you see a variety of pictures on his wall, including one of him before the "accident" and one of him with Jinx.
At the end of the episode, we find out that all of the extra titans were just holograms. But, in the scene where Beast Boy is being chased, you can see 3 holograms changing into an animal.
Chess with Raven
Granted, we're given a very limited view of the board, but even so, Cyborg and Raven's game makes no sense.
Cyborg's queen comes from the top of the screen (the side he's sitting on), and two of Raven's pawns are visible in the upper-left corner (placing them towards the top of the board, that is, far into Cyborg's territory). Granted, it's not impossible, but it is extremely unlikely to have two pawns survive side-by-side that far up the board into enemy territory.
But beyond that, Cyborg's move made no sense. He places his queen directly in the fire of Raven's bishop. There's just no reason for him to do that. If he was trying to cover his pawn, he should've placed his queen next to Raven's bishop. That way, he'd be covering his pawn and threatening the bishop.
Raven's following move makes no sense either. She uses her rook to capture Cyborg's pawn. Why would she do that when she had a clear shot at Cyborg's queen?
The only possible explanation for Raven's illogical move, her smug reaction, and Cyborg's surprise is that her move resulted in a checkmate, but this is impossible. Cyborg could've easily captured Raven's rook with his queen, but for the sake of argument, let's imagine that Raven could possibly have some convulted setup placing Cyborg in checkmate.
To illustrate, I'll be generous and assume that Raven's leftmost visible pawn in the upperleft lies on the long white diagonal (the a8 - h1 diagonal). This is a generous placing because it allows the most available area on the board for our example (though it still doesn't really make sense because Raven could've promoted any of two pawns...not that this game makes any sense at all...).
So, working on this assumption, this places Raven's rook in the f-file. The rook cannot be placing the king in check directly because the king is not visible on the screen.
Okay, so maybe the rook got out of the way of another piece that puts the king in check. In this case, Cyborg's king has to be at h4 (because it's not visible at h5 or h6, an extremely unusual place for the black king to be. But even if Cyborg's king was on h6, the offending piece must be on the e-file; in other words, directly in the line of fire of Cyborg's queen. In other words, it's not checkmate. The only way that move could've resulted in a checkmate is if Cyborg's king was already under check, in which case that move he made with his queen was illegal.
This was under the assumption that the pawn in the upperleft was on the long diagonal. If we shift our example at all to the right (using the c8 - h3 diagonals or any other white diagonal after that) or assume that the upperleft-most pawn is on d5 (a more plausible place for her pawn to be), check becomes impossible. If you shift the example down to the b5 - f1 diagonal, check is possible, but not mate. Hardly something to gloat or panic about.
After Billy divides for the first time, Starfire and Raven switch between standing next to the T-Car and hovering over it.
A certain bar on Cyborg's arm panel is labeled "Appetite" the first time Cyborg starts shutting down his systems. In later scenes, however, it is replaced by a bar called "Hunger."
Billy: Hey, Billy, I got one!
(Beast Boy transforms into a tiger)
Robin: (About Billy) Great, he can be in ten places at once.
Beast Boy: Not even Cyborg can do that!
Cyborg: Watch me!
Cyborg: All right, I gotta skydiving class in 15 minutes. Let's handle this one fast.
Billy: Y'all might be able to handle one Billy Numerous, but let's see how you handle ten.
(Billy Numerous splits into ten Billys, surrounding the Titans)
Raven: (To Cyborg) You're gonna be late for class.
Adonis: Adonis has upgraded!
Cyborg: So have I!
Robin: What's the matter, Adonis? Starting to feel the burn?
Billy #1: Hey, Billy! Look at this funny Mexican hat I stole!
Billy #2: Olé, Billy! You're a good man!
Billy #3: And a really good thief.
Billy #4: Not to mention one heck of a good lookin' feller', Billy!
Billy #5: Oh, Billy! Hahahaha -
Cyborg: Hey, Billy! Quit talkin' to yourself.
Cyborg: But how am I supposed to beat Billy without the Max-7? I could barely keep up with him before.
Beast Boy: (Wearing a paper hat) Maybe you don't need to keep up with him. I can turn into the biggest, strongest, fastest animals on earth, but you know what, dude? Sometimes it's best to be a slow, tiny turtle. (Holds out origami turtle)
Raven: That would have been a lot more profound without the hat.
Robin: Cyborg, it's great that your working so hard, but I think there may be something wrong.
Raven: You just don't seem like you.
Starfire: Your joyful smile is gone, you have ceased the "Boo-Ya's" -
Beast Boy: And you haven't made a joke all day. You're totally Cy-boring.
Billy: Bubba, you just opened up a six pack! (Separates into six Billy's)
Raven: We're actually reading the instructions.
Beast Boy: You know, Cyborg's always had chips for brains, but he's turning into the one thing I never thought he could be.
Raven: What's that?
Beast Boy: A robot.
Cyborg: (On TV) Remember, if your not cookin' with CY-BQ sauce, you just ain't cookin'.
Announcer: CY-BQ Brand. Official marinade of the Teen Titans.
Starfire: I thought our official marinade was Zorbrian Spider Juice.
Beast Boy: Dude, Cyborg is more Cyborg-y than ever!
Starfire: Agreed. He now opens even larger cans of "the butt whoop."
Cyborg: Hello, bacon! Hello, eggs! Nothin' personal. (Eats eggs and bacon)
Raven: Azarath Metrion -
This is the second time that the series had dealt with a serious real life dilemma: Addiction. The first was racism in "TROQ."
Running Gag: Beast Boy getting beat by Cyborg at video games and Beast Boy complaining about it.
The word Cyborg spelt in the (presumably) Spelling Bee is: "autochthonous," meaning native to, or indigenous from.
Villain Debut(s): Billy Numerous -- Although, he was seen in "Deception," he is first identified in this episode.
This is the second time Billy Numerous is shown.
At the beginning of the episode, when the TV guy announces the new Max-7, he says that the product is from S.T.A.R. Labs. After the opening theme, when the chip is delivered to the tower, Cyborg says that it is fully compatible with all of his systems. This would make a lot of sense, considering the fact that his father works at S.T.A.R. Labs, and that is also where Cyborg had his "accident" and got his cyborg parts. Cyborg's father is also the one who built Titans Tower.
These are some of the other pictures on Cyborg's wall: Cyborg with his car (first introduced in "Car Trouble"), and Cyborg in a football uniform, hinting at his life before his accident.
Opener: A normal day in the life of Cyborg, in which he finds himself not having enough time to do everything he wanted to do.
Cyborg defeating Adonis single-handed is similar to how Beast Boy beat Adonis single-handedly in "The Beast Within."
As Beast Boy makes that paper hat, his thought balloon shows instructions on how to make the hat. So anyone interested in making one of those hats should tape the episode and play that part back frame by frame.
Robin's bo staff is now extendable. He pole-vaults with it at one point.
Before the Max-7 shorted him out, Cyborg was about to display a new weapon. A super-sonic cannon in that his arm had taken a different shape than his regular cannon and a significantly more powerful blast was about to come from it.
Cyborg actually has a robotic pupil in his red eye. We see it for the first time here.
Apparently, Cyborg has two sonic cannons in each arm.
The announcer on the Max-7 commercial was also the game show host in "Episode 257-494."
Apparently, the tower has a rotating selection of sports courts on the roof as it was a vollyball court in "Titan Rising," and is a basketball court in this episode.
Starfire proves her superior strength again by lifting the same amount of weight as Cyborg with one arm while he struggled using two.
When Cyborg coaches little league, the kid sliding into home base is the same kid with the plastic hand from "The Sum of His Parts."
The photo of Cyborg and Jinx dancing on the wall in Cyborg's room is from the earlier episode, "Deception."
The activities Cyborg did with the other Titans were: Beast Boy - beat him at video games all day; Robin - shoot hoops; Starfire - lift weights; Raven - play chess.
Cyborg's systems: Emotion, Fun, Hunger, Sleep, Max-7.
Cyborg now speaks fluent Tamaranian.
Adonis, a villain not seen since last season's "The Beast Within," returns.
Cyborg coaches a little league team.
Cyborg has a picture of himself dancing with Jinx in his room.
Villain(s): Adonis & Billy Numerous.
YTV airdate: May 11, 2005.
Look Hard: The fourth time Cyborg defeats Beast Boy at video games, he does the Egyptian walk, from the "Walk Like an Egyptian" video clip by The Bangles.
Billy Numerous previously appeared at the HIVE academy in "Deception."
Video Game: Street Fighters
Cyborg and Beast Boy were playing a game similar to Street Fighters.
Game one: Cyborg's Guile vs. Beast Boy's Chun-Li.
Game two: Cyborg was doing moves from E.Honda, and Ryu/Ken. (Who share attack moves.)
Game Three: Cyborg is playing M. Bison.
Game Four: Cyborg is Ken or Ryu.
Beast Boy didn't have a chance to react in the last three games.
Starfire: Agreed. He now opens even larger cans of "the butt-whoop."
"Butt-whoop" is obviously a watered down version of the saying, "whoop-ass."
Robin's staff freely changes length, even becoming dozens of feet long, much like the staff of the Monkey King from the Chinese novel, Journey to the West.
