Trigon the Terrible is the father of Raven and a demonic conqueror of dimensions. Through his reputation, he became regarded as one of the fiercest beings in the universe.
Meeting the Teen Titans
Trigon arrived at Titans Tower by travelling through an interdimensional portal. He knocked on the tower's walls and began to recite his professions and titles until he was interrupted by Raven. Shrinking into a size suitable for the tower's rooms, he quickly introduced himself by flattering the other Titans. Raven demanded to know the reason for his visit, but quickly bid him farewell before entering her room. Hurt, Trigon followed her through a portal of his own as the other Titans sympathized with the demonic conqueror.
Upon entering Raven's room, Trigon attempted to tidy her books and shed light but Raven quickly undid Trigon's work. Trigon revealed his plans to take the Titans to eat pizza, but Raven refused as she knew that Trigon's reason for visiting the tower was to get her to become fully demonic. He attempted to persuade her, but Raven rebuffed her birthright by claiming she didn't ask to be his daughter. Saddened by the outburst, Trigon exited the room and sat on the couch with the other Titans. He asked them who wouldn't like a father who can grant power, entrancing them. In order to convince Raven to embrace her destiny, Trigon granted Beast Boy the ability to shift into any object and Starfire the power to speak like an Earth teenager. He also gave Cyborg a dog head for a hand and made Robin extremely muscular while giving Silkie a pair of wings.
Trigon flew a kite on top of the tower when Raven, having grown frustrated by her friends' acceptance of Trigon, informed him of her decision to oblige to his wishes. Trigon instructed her on the path to become truly demonic until he revealed that this would mean the death of her friends, shocking the Titans who realized that Raven was right about Trigon. Angered by her trick, Trigon transformed into his demonic form and was attacked by Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg. However, Raven shrunk Trigon in size and cast him into an interdimensional portal, but shared her belief that he'd return for Thanksgiving.
After Raven neglected to give him a gift for Father's Day, Trigon returned to Earth with the intention of destroying it to harm her. He transported Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg to the center of the Earth and shot fireballs at Jump City until Starfire gave him a hand-drawn drawing of Raven and Trigon. Touched by the gesture, he stopped his attack on Earth and promptly disembarked. Later, he returned to the tower and gifted Starfire a kitten for being nice to him, but Raven promptly shooed him away. Starfire found him on a rock outside the tower and invited him for a silly dance party which he promptly agreed to.
Afterwards, Trigon showed Starfire a scrapbook filled with pictures of Raven and explained the story behind each one, but Raven destroyed the scrapbook after telling him that she had changed. Trigon, however, snatched a picture from the air and explained to Starfire that it depicted the first time he and Raven tortured a demon together. Saddened, Starfire explained to Trigon that she didn't have a father figure in her life, and Trigon volunteered to fill the role, causing Raven to become jealous as she clutched a picture of her riding Trigon's shoulders.
Raven eventually attacked Starfire out of spite and claimed that Trigon would simply hurt her. However, the two realized that Trigon had toyed with their emotions in another plot to get Raven to accept to her birthright. The demonic conqueror, who had witnessed the battle, appeared before them and complained that they stopped when it was getting good. The two managed to transport Trigon into another portal, but he promised to see them at Thanksgiving as he spiraled away.
Turkey Day mission
Trigon arrived at Titans Tower through a portal in the elevator. He wished the Titans a happy Thanksgiving, but Robin informed him he wasn't welcome because he wasn't on the seating chart. Trigon promised that he had arrived as a father to ensure that Raven had a perfect Thanksgiving, not as a demon to devour souls. Raven, however, believed that Trigon would ruin another holiday. Trigon praised Robin's turkey, calling it perfection, and Robin agreed to put him on the seating chart. After a family of rats consumed the turkey, Trigon was outraged at the idea of a Turkey Day without a turkey and decided that he would procure another one. He asked for the meatiest of the Titans to help him and poked Cyborg's stomach after he volunteered. They entered the kitchen where Cyborg offered to cook the bird if Trigon provided one. Trigon said that the recipe was a family secret and transformed Cyborg into a turkey.
He tried to use an axe to cut off Cyborg's head, but Cyborg would retract his head and avoid the axe, frustrating Trigon. Eventually, Raven entered the kitchen and Trigon asked for her help, but she said that he was ruining another holiday. He reasoned that he only wanted Raven to have a turkey on Thanksgiving, but she refused to eat one of her friends. Trigon said that he had gotten the Titan she liked the least, but Raven said she liked Robin the least. Throughout their argument, the two fought over Cyborg with their soul-self and he eventually fell to the floor and ran off. Trigon pursued him into the hallway and pinned him down with an axe. He punched Raven off when she tried to stop him and she said that he never listened to her. She told Trigon to eat Cyborg, but gave him puppy dog eyes, causing him to hesitate and realize that Raven didn't need to eat one of her friends for a perfect holiday. Raven thanked him for understanding and asked that he transform Cyborg back, but Trigon revealed that he couldn't and that the magic would wear off around Christmas.
Trigon joined the Titans and rats at the table to begin the feast. When it was his turn, he said he was thankful for spending the day with his daughter even if she didn't appreciate all that he had done for her. Cyborg, stuck as a turkey, gobbled incoherently yet Trigon agreed with him. He, however, became entranced by the turkey and relapsed, saying that he had to eat a turkey. He resumed throwing axes at Cyborg while Beast Boy started a food fight that ended with Batman's arrival. After the rats cleaned up the mess and cooked a feast to thank the Titans for their genorisity, Trigon and Raven provided another turkey: Batman.
While the Titans celebrated Crazy Day, Trigon plotted to use the holiday to drive Raven into becoming evil. He trapped Raven inside her mind and disguised himself as her subconscious, instructing her to pass three obstacles if she wanted to discover the source. While she traversed her mind, Trigon also took control of her body, but the Titans assumed that she was simply competing for the title of Captain Crazy. The obstacles he used were based off of her friends as he knew how much they could drive her crazy. However, despite a few close calls, Raven managed to remain calm and past the last obstacle where Trigon was waiting. She realized he had use the likeness of her friends in an attempt to drive her into becoming evil, and said that he had failed as she spent every minute with them and was used to their antics. Trigon said that they seemed fun and she suggested he spent more time with them. She gathered the Titans and placed them inside of his mind whereupon he claimed they were driving him crazy. As such, his control over Raven's mind and body were broken and the Titans returned to their living room. Because of his actions over her body, Raven was crowned Captain Crazy.
Teen Titans Go! comic book series
During a girls' only sleep over, Raven, Starfire, Bumblebee, and Jinx participated in a game of MASH with Starfire being predicted to marry Trigon. As the game was written on a page of Raven's spell book, it summoned Trigon and he arrived to collect his bride. An eavesdropping Robin, however, attempted to confront Trigon, but the two were thrown out of the tower for violating the girl's number one rule: no boys allowed. In turn, Trigon and Robin joined Beast Boy and Cyborg at a bowling alley where Trigon praised Cyborg on another strike before asking if he was cheating through his robotic technology which the Titan nervously denied.
To prove that he was better than Dusty Goober and to impress Starfire, Robin embarked on a mission to show off his strengths and punched Trigon as part of his crusade.
Trigon depicts himself as a caring and thoughtful father, quickly earning sympathy from the Titans after Raven shunned him despite his supposed kindness to her. However, he revealed himself to be manipulative and cunning as he had granted the Titans powers and faked being a father figure to Starfire in order for them to pressure Raven into accepting him and her birthright. When angered, Trigon displayed violent solutions to correct his plans. After Raven revealed that she had tricked Trigon to reveal his true self, Trigon resolved to destroy them, including his daughter for the trick. When Raven refused to get him anything during Father's Day, he decided to destroy Earth to punish her.
As a conqueror, he is ruthless and power-hungry and accepts these traits as shown through his various titles where he calls himself an enslaver. Despite this, he generally cares for Raven to a certain extent. He possessed a scrapbook of Raven and cherished their moments together highly as he was able to provide a story behind each picture, showing that he valued the time with his daughter.
Trigon is a muscular figure with blood red skin etched with black body markings around his biceps and torso. He has two sets of yellow eyes, horns, long white hair, and goat hooves instead of feet. He wears chain mail loincloth and similarly colored metal cuffs around his wrists.
As a powerful demonic conqueror, Trigon possess several abilities to enslave others and wreak havoc on various dimensions and on other people.
- Animal transformation: Trigon is able to transform other people into animals, but they retain some of their characteristics as shown when he turned Cyborg and Batman into turkeys that resembled their human selves. Once transformed, they retain a human consciousness yet are unable to speak like other animal shape-shifters. However, Trigon is unable to transform his victims back and the magic will typically take a month to wear off.
- Body control: Trigon can take control of someone's body and actions. If done so, the person's eyes become yellow. He can simultaneously take control of the mind as well.
- Dimensional travel: Trigon is able to create portals to travel between dimensions. He also uses this for small-scale distances such as travelling between rooms in Titans Tower.
- Geokinesis: Trigon was able to cause a ledge to give way and create a chasm underneath Robin, Beast Boy, and Cyborg with a snap of his fingers.
- Levitation: Trigon is able to navigate by floating off the ground and through the air.
- Mind control: Trigon has the ability to take over someone's subconscious and create images for that person to see. He can also alter his voice to make it sound like someone else and simultaneously take control of the body. When done, the victim suffers a headache.
- Power granting: Trigon is able to grant wishes and imbue others with magical abilities. He was able to give massive muscles to Robin, the ability to shape-shift into anything for Beast Boy, a dog hand for Cyborg, the ability to talk like an Earth teen for Starfire, and wings for Silkie.
- Pyrokinesis: Trigon is able to harness his soul-self and make them into fireballs powerful enough to knock down skyscrapers. He is able to fire them as far as he wishes and in any direction.
- Size alteration: Trigon possess the ability to either shrink in size to accommodate the tower's halls or increase in size to higher than the tower.
- Soul devouring: Trigon can devour the souls of people and animals, in large amounts or individually.
- Soul restoration: Trigon can also restore souls before he consumes them and bring that animal (and presumably person) back to life.
- Telekinesis: Trigon is able to use his mind to move objects. When he does so, the objects are surrounded by a red glow.
When Trigon arrived to visit Raven, he granted Starfire the ability to speak as an Earth teenager in order to gain her support and help him convince Raven into accepting her birthright. She did not participate in the fight against him. When Raven refused to get him anything for Father's Day, Starfire managed to stop his assault on Jump City by being nice to him. In turn, he expressed his gratitude by giving her a kitten and the two soon participated in a Silly Dance Party. Starfire admitted to Trigon that she longed for a father-daughter relationship and the two began bonding, causing Raven to become jealous. However, the two later discover that Trigon had purposefully toyed with their emotions, meaning that his bond with Starfire was simply a ruse to get Raven to accept her birthright. During a girl's only sleep over, Trigon readily accepted to marry Starfire after a game of MASH predicted that she would, but he was stopped by Raven.
