"Arms Race with Legs" is the 31st episode of the third season of Teen Titans Go!, and the 135th episode of the series.

Summary

Raven as Lady Legasus must help the League of Legs.

Plot

The episode starts with Beast Boy jumping to touch the door frame leading to the kitchen. The other Titans (except for Raven who couldn't care less) think that is is really cool and also try to reach the frame (all succeeding). The next day, Starfire, Robin, Beast Boy and Cyborg all go around jumping and touching stuff. Robin then tells the rest of the Titans that he will be able to jump and touch the ceiling light. When he succeeds, the rest of the Titans ask how he does it. He replies "one word: buns".

Raven then replies, "jumping has nothing to do with the buns. It is all about the legs". Robin then asks Raven to prove it, but Raven says that she is not interested. When pressed further, she replies that "the power of the legs is not something to be used for fun and games". Raven finally caves in and transforms into Lady Legasus, who then jumps much higher than Robin. The Titans then manage to convince Lady Legasus to allow them to all go use their leg strength for fun, and they all transform back into their League of Legs counterparts.

They then proceed to jump and have fun around the city. The next day, Raven finds that the other Titans still are in their League of Legs costumes, so she warns them of the consequences. The Titans then get upset and jump unto the roof, where they begin causing havoc on passing objects. Cyborg slaps a plane, which causes it to begin spinning and falling out of the sky, so Raven transforms back into Lady Legasus to stop it.

Robin then challenges Lady Legasus to a jumping contest, and if she wins, they will go back to their normal form (and remove their League of Legs costumes). However, if Robin wins, Lady Legasus must then leave the group and the remaining Titans would stay as part of the League of Legs. Robin eventually wins the contest, and their legs turn evil as a result. The Titans, now free from Lady Legasus' authority, begin trashing the city.

Raven then goes back to Titans Tower and later discovers that the Titans put weights in her outfit to rig the contest. She then transforms back into Lady Legasus and goes to confront the Titans. After a small conversation, Lady Legasus begins her assault on the other Titans, but is easily defeated. When threatened by Robin to "join us, or suffer the consequences", Lady Legasus declines and then transforms into Mega Legasus.

Mega Legasus is easily able to defeat the other Titans by breaking their legs, and as a result, the other Titans go back into their normal costumes, and the evil power in their legs is now gone.

Characters

Trivia

  • This episode is a sequel to "Leg Day".

    • This also marks the first time that Lady Legasus appears barefoot.
  • The League of Legs make their second appearance in Season 3, and their second overall appearance in the series.
  • In "Leg Day", the League of Legs disbanded because they couldn't risk their leg power corrupting them, which is exactly what happens in this episode.
  • This is the fourth episode to focuses on a character's legs ("The Left Leg", "Legs", "Leg Day").
  • When the other Titans do the Jump 'n Touch, music from "Black Friday" is reused.

Continuity

  • Raven blushes at a comment Beast Boy makes for the sixth time. The first times were in "Waffles", "Man Person", "Cool School", "The Cruel Giggling Ghoul", and "Batman v Teen Titans: Dark Injustice".
  • Beast Boy shows major attraction to Raven/Lady Legasus' legs again ("Legs", "Leg Day").

References

  • Sailor Moon is referenced during The League of Legs transformations.
  • Starfire refers to the Greek legend of Icarus to discourage Robin. Icarus had wings made of wax that melted when he flew too close to the sun, due to hubris.
  • The roar that the giant monster makes is the very beginning of Godzilla's trademark roar.
  • Lady Legasus becoming Mega Legasus could be a reference to Pokémon, as some Pokémon can "Mega Evolve" to become more powerful.
  • League of Legasus is  a reference to League of Legends.
  • The way Robin kisses his booty is the same way Beast Boy did from the original Teen Titans series episode "Wavelength".
  • Starfire and Cyborg warn Robin not to be an Icarus, referencing a figure in Greek mythology who was overconfident when flying with man-made wings and fell to his death.
