Teen Titans: Trouble in Tokyo

Synopsis: America's coolest heroes Teen Titans head to Japan as they spring into action when a new threat, the dichromatic ninja Saico-Tek, appears in their city. A chase across the city ensues, ending at Titans Tower. Saico-Tek is interrogated by Robin with the aid of a translation program, and reveals the identity of the one who sent him. The ninja then escapes his bonds and vanishes after destroying a fire sprinkler, and the Titans' only lead is to search for his mysterious master - the shadowy figure known as Brushogun.

What are you, crazy?

Get out of the way!

Since you're new in town.

We're going to make this very simple.

Stop now!

Yeah, man. The locals don't like it

when you blow up their stuff.

Put your hands in the air and...

Hands in the air, dude,

not your whole body!


Titans! Go!

Anybody got a clue what

this genius is after?

Who cares what he wants?

What he's getting is a helping

of Grade-A butt-whoop!

All right, team.

Let's see what he's made of!

Okay. Am I the only one who's

sick of these explodey things?

Does this look like a taxi to you?

N-n-no. It's way too flat and circley.

I know you're not throwing that in my car!

How did he do that?!?

Aw, man...

Uh, excuse me, but I did not wish to

do this when you were not looking.

You okay?

I am now.

Then hang on!

But he went.

Down a dead end.

Starfire! Fly!

Think we scared him off?


He's headed straight for...

Titans Tower!

You're gonna lose a lot

more than an arm this time!

Azarath Metrion Zinthos!

Our house! Look what he did to our house!

Dude, I need a vacation.

Who are you?

What do you want?

Ah! This is bad! This... I wasn't

supposed to have been caught!

Um, either that wasn't English, or I think

I have a concussion.

What a mess.

I really need a vacation.

I can rebuild my car, I

can repair my Tower...

...but my sofa?

I can't even look.

Here, here, Cyborg.


Well, this place isn't gonna clean itself.

Dudes, seriously!

When was the last time we took a vacation?


We're heroes, Beast Boy.

We don't takevacations.

Basic systems are back online.

If anybody needs me, you

know where to look.

Let me go! LET ME GO! I'm begging you!

This is a mistake! I beg that

you send me back to Japan! It's

the place where I was created! Ah!

I was sent here! Set me free

Translation computer on.

You must let me go!

I am Saico-Tek!

You are not to stop me!

Only he may stop me!

I belong in Tokyo!

Then why are you here?

You attacked my home,

endangered my friends

and if you want to see tomorrow,

you're going to tell me why!

I was sent. My mission-he made me do it.

This Tower-no choice!

Who sent you?

No! No!

I am not supposed to speak!

You are not supposed to catch me!

He is worse than any criminal!

Angry! Cruel!

He will erase me!

Who sent you to attack our Tower?


This doesn't make any sense.

People don't just disappear.

I don't know what to tell you, man.

The crime scanner's one of the only things

we got working in this place

and it can't find him anywhere.

I can't make psychic contact either.

Perhaps this Saico-Tek possesses

the power of teleportation?

If he could teleport, he would have done it

the moment he was caught.

Maybe he just wasn't waterproof.

I know. Not helping.

So if the dude vanished into thin air,

how are we supposed to find him?

By tracking down his boss.

This Brushogun ordered an

attack on our headquarters.

He nearly destroyed our home.

He will be brought to justice.

We're heading for


SWEET! We're going on vacation!

Tokyo! We made it!

Told you it was a left at Hawaii.

The city lights are like a

million tiny fenorbla flies!

It may look nice,

but there's something rotten down there.

And we're going to-

Whoo-yeah! Hello, Japan!

So, when do we get to

go see the Great Wall?

Never. It's in China.

But you know what is in Tokyo?

The world-famous, number-one greatest,

most awesome Japanese comic book company,

Wakamono Shuppan!

We gotta take the tour! Now! Please?

Oh, we can't come here

on vacation and not...

We are not on vacation!

We're heroes, not tourists.

Our mission is to locate Brushogun

and bring him to justice.

And since we're guests in this country,

we need to be on our best behavior.

So let's just do our job and

try to stay out of trouble.

Come on. How much trouble

could we possibly get in?

So, the Teen Titans have come to Tokyo.

Saico-Tek must have talked.

Most unfortunate.

Don't you agree, my friend?

But you needn't worry.

I will soon give these "heroes"

a good reason to leave.


So, where to now?

The roughest part of town is

in the Shinjuku district.

We'll start our search there.

Okay. Which way is that?

I don't know. I can't read the signs.

No problem. We'll just ask for directions.

Um, hi. How do I get to Shinjuku?

Hm? I'm sorry.

I don't speak English, so I can't help you.

Okay, thanks.

I have no idea what he said.

Perhaps I may be of assistance.

Excuse me, but which direction is Shinjuku?

That way.

Thank you very much.

I love you.

It is this way.

Starfire? Why did you just...

kiss that guy?

The people of my planet

are able to learn any

language instantaneously

through lip contact.

So you speak Japanese now?

That's great!

Yeah. Great.

Run! It's huge!

A monster is attacking the power lines!

What are they saying?

Run! The monster is

attacking the power lines!

Titans! Go!

Same power as Saico-Tek!

Because it works for Brushogun too.

Where's a gas-guzzler when you need one?

I hear baseball's big in Japan.

Well, get ready for a grand slam!

Hey! Over here!

Your mother was a salamander!

How am I supposed to pick

up hot Japanese girls...

...with a big green stain on my shirt?

Your skin is green, you have fangs,

and your ears are pointed.

You're really worried about the shirt?


Chicks dig the ears!

Hey! Wait! Ugh!

Troopers! Charge!

We have got to get one of those!

Ah. You are the Teen Titans, hmm?

Welcome to Japan.

I am Commander Uehara Daizo,

of the Tokyo Troopers.

Tokyo is a unique city, my young friends,

with its own unique dangers.

Of course, I am sorry you had

to learn this the hard way.

We're used to danger,

But we appreciate your help, Commander.


No, no, no,

no. You may call me Daizo, hmm?

We are friends.

I will honor you with a tour of our

headquarters and our home.

I founded the Tokyo Troopers to

help keep the city safe.

We're not too different from you Titans...

except... we are all grownups.

My operation is a triumph of Japanese

culture, technology, and design.

Living units are efficient but comfortable.

Hourly training sessions keep

my Troopers in peak form.

My highly advanced command

center has reduced

crime in Tokyo by two

hundred percent.

Not bad, hmm? Hmm?


Don't touch anything.

With your permission,

Daizo, I'd like to use

this equipment to

complete our mission.

Ahhh. Certainly, my young friend.

And what, may I inquire, is your mission?

We're tracking a criminal who

calls himself Brushogun.

Forgive me. But you are

ignorant of our culture.

Brushogun is an urban legend, a myth.

I'm afraid you've come a

long way for nothing.

As you can see... my Troopers have Tokyo's

real criminals well under control.

But Saico-Tek said...

I'm sorry, I don't know who that is.

Someone is playing a trick

on you, perhaps, hmm?

I...I'm not sure.

Commander Uehara!

Tokyo thanks you.

You've saved our city once again!

It is my honor to serve, Mr. Mayor.
