|~ Trigon after conquering Earth.|
Trigon, also known as Trigon the Terrible, is a major antagonist in the 2003 Cartoon Network series Teen Titans, serving as the overarching antagonist of Season 1-3 and as the main antagonist of Season 4. He is also one of the two main antagonists (alongside his 2013 incarnation) of the animated direct-to-video film Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans. He is Raven's demonic father who seeks to conquer Earth.
In Season 1, he was voiced by Keith Szarabajka. In Season 4, he was voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson, who also played Mammoth, Captain Gantu, Dark Laser, Temutai, Goro, Chairman Drek, Black Samurai, Doug the Pimple, Tartarus, Rocko Socko, Sarevok Anchev, and Shredder.
Trigon first appears, unnamed and with a different appearance from his actual introduction, in the season 1 episode "Nevermore" as a manifestation of Raven's anger within her mind.
Trigon later appears as the main antagonist in the fourth season. Trigon resurrects the Titans' foe Slade to force Raven into releasing him upon the Earth. In the three-part finale "The End", Trigon finally emerges and destroys the Earth; the Titans are spared by a fraction of Raven's power, which she had given them before releasing Trigon.
The Teen Titans are joined by Slade, so they launch an all-out assault on Trigon, but are ultimately too weak to defeat him. In the end, it is Raven who defeats him, using her own powers to obliterate Trigon, undoing the destruction he had caused in the process and the potential conquest of every world in the cosmos by his demonic followers.
Teen Titans Go! vs. Teen Titans
Powers and Abilities
Trigon possesses vast reality manipulation powers, enabling him to reshape the surface of the Earth on a whim, revive the dead (either as superpowered undead servants or flesh and blood), and rip the fabric of space to transport his army vast distances. He can bring a person's inner darkness to life, creating an exact replica of that person, down to their powers and memories. He also possesses more generic superhuman abilities such as firing energy blasts, creating force-fields, and controlling fire, the latter of which he can impart to his servants.
- He is more or less the same as his comic counterpart.
- Given his powers from warping reality to creating fire servants and additional powers, Trigon is considered the most powerful antagonist the Teen Titans has ever faced.
- Trigon along with Slade are one of the few main antagonists to appear in more than one season. Whereas Slade appeared in all five seasons, Trigon appeared in three seasons: in season one he appeared in Raven's mind as a manifestation of her rage, he appeared as the main antagonist of season four and appeared briefly in Raven's story to the kids she was babysitting in season five.
