"Beast Boy is Cyborg's best bud- a slightly dim but lovable loafer who transforms into all sorts of animals when he's not eating burritos and watching TV."
Garfield Logan is unlike any human. He has the ability to transform into any animal he wants. This is because, as a kid, he contracted a rare disease called Sakutia that can often be fatal. In an attempt to save his life, his parents, whom are scientists, use an untested serum drug on him. While the drug cured him of the disease, it came at a cost. His skin, hair, and eyes are now green, and he has the ability to transform into any animal that he desires, as long as he has seen a picture of the animal or seen it in person. This allows him to transform to anything like everyday dogs, extinct dinosaurs or alien lifeforms. For a while during his heroic pursuits, he had adopted the name "Changeling," but is now referred to as Beast Boy.
Beast Boy is a former member of the Doom Patrol, as well as being the youngest. He left because the leader of the Doom Patrol and his adoptive father Mento was too serious and mean to him. However, he still wears his Doom Patrol suit excluding his mask.
PersonalityQuick with his tongue and utterly insecure, Beast Boy will do anything for a laugh. Beast Boy is the playful trickster of the group. He enjoys pulling pranks on people, and can't seem to tell when he's gone too far, as in Ghost Boy. He also seems to be quite lazy, as shown in Dude Relax. He tricks other Titans into fighting, while he just goes home and drinks soda, until he is caught by Robin.
Beast Boy is very friendly, and will work hard to help out a friend. He got a job to buy Cyborg, (his best friend), a video game that he wanted in Pie Bros. He worked a number of jobs, including a chemist, Ed's lawyer, a doctor, and a worker at Mother Mae-Eye's pie shop to make ends meet. He is somewhat treated as the "black sheep" of the group, and is the subject of frequent ridicule and teasing.
Beast Boy is prone to sudden and passionate romantic infatuation. He believed Terra was his girlfriend immediately after she approached him and fell madly in love with her. He did the same with Raven when Cyborg's matchmaker device considered them an ideal couple. In the latter's case, he went as far as trying to marry Raven. However, both times he seemed to move on rather quickly after their respective relationships ended, although, his affections for Terra are still strong when she returns in "Be Mine", and he still is a major flirt when it comes to Raven. In general, he tries to flirt with any girl he comes across. An exception to this is Starfire, which he views as a big sister, and someone to enjoy pranks with.
Although considered naive and unintelligent, Beast Boy appears to be smarter than he lets on, as he was apparently well aware of the Titans prank on him in Ghost Boy, and deliberately sent them on a wild goose chase trying to save him from jumping into a volcano--although this would backfire (including on Beast Boy himself).
Also, Beast Boy is a vegetarian, eating tofu as a meat-substitute. Although, he was oddly willing to eat meat in Legendary Sandwich, yet it could have been a tofu or vegetarian version. However, in some other episodes, Beast Boy eats a lot of pizzas/meat which a vegetarian doesn't eat.
He also uses words like "Bro", "Brah", and "Dude" often, which in Matched, Raven seems to dislike and Robin detests occasionally.
Throughout several episodes, he seems to be particularly close with teammate Raven. The two seem to share a somewhat mutual, flirtatious relationship. Although Beast Boy seems to be unaware of Raven's romantic feelings for him. Later it is revealed in Pirates, he returns those same feelings for her, implying he may feel the same way.
Beast Boy's appearance varies considering his shape shifting, which basically consists of virtually any animal. His hair, unlike his original hair on Teen Titans, is not slicked back but is forward, with longer bangs than before. He has a black turtleneck with a purple belly, he is long-sleeved with gray gloves that have black on the back of the palms. He has matching shoes similar to the patterns of his clothing with paw-like prints on the bottom of the soles. He has green skin, green hair and pointy ears, and his mouth has a tooth from the bottom pointing upwards. Like all characters Beast Boy was also a baby. The episode when Beast Boy was a baby is Dog Hand. He asked animals from zoo are they his mother but none was. As a baby, he had one tooth, with green hair and diaper.

Beast Boy and Cyborg are described as being best friends in the series. They have many of the same interests, such as a love of pie, sodas, and playing video games. There are many episodes where their friendship is evident, such as in Power Moves the two of them had spent a lot of time coming up with ways to combine their attacks. In Be Mine after hearing that Terra had returned and agreed to date Beast Boy, Cyborg high-fives him and calls him "Little Buddy".
Despite this, there are times even Cyborg is shown getting annoyed at Beast Boy. In Ghost Boy, he becomes fed-up of his pranks, and in Double Trouble when he wants to be by himself for a while instead of playing games with Beast Boy. In You're Fired!, Cyborg was sad because of Beast Boy leaving, so he made fun of all the contestants in the try-outs. However, later he seemed normal. He was also surprisingly nonchalant about Beast Boy being eaten in "Meatball Party", being more concerned with finishing an activity book at the time. In Burger vs. Burrito, Beast Boy and Cyborg fight over which food is better, burgers or burritos. They resolve the conflict by the end of the episode and became friends again.
Similar to the original series, Beast Boy and Raven have a complex relationship. Raven claims to find Beast Boy highly annoying and almost never laughs at his jokes regardless and the two do seem to still be quite close. It is true that he is very attracted to her, as he flirted with her in Hey Pizza!, describing her bathing suit as "hot". In the episode Meatball Party, Raven gets a cracked tooth and whenever she opens her mouth an octopus demon pops out. Whenever it did at first, it would always pick on Beast Boy. Beast Boy even questioned why it singled him out. This may be indication that Raven often has Beast Boy on her mind.
In Terra-ized, after Terra was defeated, Beast Boy angrily questioned the other Titans why it was hard to believe that Raven had feelings for him, to which Raven scoffs and smiles lovingly behind his back at the thought of them together. This episode confirms Raven's romantic attraction towards Beast Boy for the first time. In Burger vs. Burrito, he gives Raven a quick flirty wink while singing his burrito song.
In Matched, Beast Boy spends practically the whole episode trying to get Raven to love him after Cyborg's machine matches them together. Despite Raven's apparent love for him, she slapped or rejected constantly, but he never did give up. This may imply that she is in denial of her true feelings for him, or the fact she was not ready to reveal them to him. Near the episode's end, Raven actually realized that he really does care and that she wanted to be with him. They even nearly get married, until Cyborg said the machine was broken and Beast Boy was really paired with a scratching post. Immediately, he appears to take a liking to a nearby scratching post and his romantic obsession with Raven seems to subside, leaving her visibly frustrated. Throughout several episodes after that, he continues to flirt with her.
Later in Colors of Raven, Passion showed a major attraction towards him (kissing him constantly), to Beast Boy's apparent delight. He was clearly disappointed when Robin didn't let him seek out Passion later on. As an alternative (after Cyborg gave him the idea), he decided to find Raven's happy side as the next best thing. When he found her, he and Cyborg said he missed her and Happy Raven said she missed him too. She then used her powers to turn a disgusting alley into a fun wonderland and spent the whole day having fun together up until she accidentally trapped herself inside the prism. Beast Boy was apparently disappointed she was gone and disgusted that he was in the middle of eating a shoe. Throughout
In Legs, Beast Boy admires her legs when they are revealed. At the end of the episode, Beast Boy is disappointed after Raven puts back on her cloak. Raven decides to show her leg one more time, just for him, while Beast Boy turns into a dog and howls in delight. In Waffles, Beast Boy flirts with Raven while Robin makes waffles. Raven blushes and looks away, saying "right..." It is unknown what Beast Boy might have said.
In Be Mine, Beast Boy becomes deeply depressed when he discovers Terra despises him. Raven then tries to comfort him, saying that there is another girl out there who likes him (implying herself). This doesn't comfort Beast Boy, as he sadly remarks "then why hasn't she told me?" with his mind still on Terra. Raven looks down at his dejected body on the kitchen table , and begins to be sad herself as she can't bring herself to tell him the truth. Later in the day, the Valentine dance has started, with Beast Boy tearing up because he has no Valentine to be with. Raven comes close to revealing her feelings for him, but is interrupted by Terra at the last second in the episode. When Beast Boy seems to win Terra over with a song her wrote her, Raven is seen visibly heartbroken and becomes angry and jealous as she watches in tears and sends Terra back into the previous dimension she sealed her in the last time. This episode confirms Raven's romantic interest in Beast Boy further.
In Real Magic, for a brief moment it shows a trail of rose petals and lighted candles leading to Beast Boy laying on Raven's bed, only in his underwear, attempting to seduce her. The moment when Beast Boy gestured her with his finger for her to come closer to him, Raven claimed she hated it and immediately closed her bedroom door and proceeded to leave.
In the episode Man Person, Beast Boy thinks Raven's the strongest person he knows, and she blushes after he says that. Also Raven is shown to be quite attracted to Beast Boy in this episode as she called him "so hot" once he got his robot arm. And when Cyborg and Robin were arguing about Beast Boy's new name she floats in and says dreamily that Beast Boy "is no boy" while being surrounded by small hearts popping out from her head. Raven has also suddenly started making flirtatious comments when Beast Boy's (Scar Man's) full new muscular robotic body is revealed.
In Pirates, Beast Boy shows that he does in fact hold deep romantic feelings for Raven. Calling her "his girl" multiple times. When speaking to Aqualad, he remarks how cool he thinks Raven is, as he gives her a quick flirty wink (unnoticed by her) and stares at her lovingly. Aqualad responds in believing that Raven is a "dude in the hoodie" and Beast Boy proves to him that she isn't by pulling her hood down. After he gets beaten by Raven for pulling down her hood, he announces dreamily how "she is dark, but there is a light inside her" and "she always plays hard to get". When Aqualad begins to flirt and ask Raven out on a date, he is shown to be extremely jealous and mad. After Aqualad brings Raven from their date, he yells at him saying "LAY OFF MY GIRL!". Later on, when Raven is about to go on another date with Aqualad, he pulls on her cloak, begging her not to go. He again begins to argue with Aqualad and Raven insists that they settle this in a fight to the death, and the winner can go on a date with her. Aqualad refuses to fight Beast Boy to death and throws down his weapons, but Beast Boy on the other hand unleashes no mercy on him, nearly killing him in the process. After Beast Boy supposedly wins the fight, he asks Raven about the date and she responds by announcing that, "I said to the death" and since no one died, she refuses the offer. He then goes and tries to show again his intensity to Raven but passes out. Raven says he was still "pretty intense" with a "Terra-ized smile", referring to the fight with Aqualad which Beast Boy does not hear, and she kisses him on the forehead.
In I See You, Cyborg convinces Beast Boy that Raven's secret is that she has a secret crush on him (which is true unknown to both of them). Which makes Beast Boy flattered and excited. Through out the episode Cyborg and Beast Boy are seen to be hiding under Raven's bed, trying to prove that Raven's secret is about Beast Boy. After getting accidentally sucked into a portal by Raven, Cyborg said he took a quick picture of Raven's secret. He shows the picture to Beast Boy. Beast Boy, looking quite disappointed, said it was just a picture of him. With that Cyborg said it was proof that she likes him and both celebrated their victory with a dance as "stakeout kings"
In Salty Codgers, Beast Boy calls Raven beautiful and he also calls her "hot stuff", while he gives her a flirty wink.
In Slumber Party, when Raven refuses to join the pillow fight, Beast Boys begs by asking her flirtatiously, "PLEASE mama? It won't be fun if you don't play"?
Beast Boy is shown to have a minor rivalry of sorts with Robin but they are still very good friends. In Dude Relax, Beast Boy shows a competitive nature with him by saying that he's better at relaxing than Robin. According to him, it's pretty much the only thing he's better than Robin at, but he will still take that victory. In "Gorilla" he was the only Titan to refuse to listen to any of Robin's orders, and even usurped Robin's position as leader of the Titans. However, Robin regains his status by the end of the episode. In Girl's Night Out, the two enjoy a Boy's Night Out with Cyborg laughing with each other and agreeing to each others every thought.
Beast Boy is good friends with Starfire. However, he also knows she is quite naive and vulnerable to his pranks, unlike the other Titans as shown in Ghost Boy. He takes advantage of this and tricked her into making her his servant in that episode because she was fooled into thinking he was a ghost. He also teaches her how to lie in Starliar, although even he felt she went overboard in the episode. He also thinks Starfire is like a big sister to him, and he did call her 'mama' in Breakfast Cheese.
Beast Boy is shown to have a strong romantic interest in Terra. In Terra-ized, Beast Boy proudly claims to the other Titans that she is his girlfriend, even with the disagreement of Terra herself. Terra then decided to take advantage of his feelings for her, and agreed to be his girlfriend so she could hack into the Titans information for Slade. Beast Boy even catches her tying up the other Titans, and hanging them over the side of the Tower, but he still isn't convinced she is evil. In the end, Terra attempts to critically injure or possibly even kill Beast Boy, by using telekinesis to summon a giant boulder from the Titan's island. Her efforts are stopped by Raven, who uses her magic to smash the boulder into mere pebbles. Enraged, Terra crushes Raven head on while Raven remains still and calm, and conjures a soul-self hand to bash Terra in the face, where she is defeated. Raven then sends her to another dimension, with the disapproval of Beast Boy, who even though was almost injured by Terra, explained that Terra was about to share her true feelings with him.
In Be Mine Beast Boy is revealed to still hold feelings for her. He frees her from the dimension Raven sent her to, and tries to get her to come to the Titans' Valentine's dance. He is heartbroken when Raven proves that Terra hates him. At the end of the episode, he sings a serenade for her, with his own song, Fade Away, which seems to win her over. Raven becomes sadden, angry and jealous and then sends Terra back to the other dimension she sealed her into the last time, but Beast Boy jumps in after her this time. It is currently unknown what their relationship is like at the moment.
Beast Boy first becomes acquainted to Aqualad in the episode Pirates and initially got along with him due to their common interest of not liking to eat meat. When Aqualad mistook Raven for a guy, Beast Boy runs up to her throws down her hood, and Raven beats him up, but in the process Aqualad becomes smitten with her. Beast Boy becomes furiously jealous at Aqualad when he flirts with Raven, telling him to lay off "his girl" and with them still arguing Raven tells the two to fight to the death, Aqualad refused yet Beast Boy eagerly beats him to a pulp. Aqualad is last seen in a hospital, where he emerges with anger and the appearance of a pirate.

- Beast Boy's childhood as seen in Dog Hand conflicts with his origin in the comics. In the original DC comics (as well as the one based on the first TV series) it is shown that Beast Boy's parents were scientists, and they died when Beast Boy was young in a boating accident after Beast Boy gained his powers. The same applies with Cyborg's back story shown in the episode. It is possible these were both simply meant to be played for laughs, however, and not to be taken literally.
- His hair is slightly different from Housebroken Hero.
- In the original Teen Titans series, he was a pure vegetarian eating tofu as a meat replacement, but in Teen Titans Go! he is more of a flexitarian. Evidence of this involves him wanting to eat the Legendary Sandwich which contains bacon and him competing in a Hot dog Eating contest in Laundry Day (many of the times, he eats them in his pig form) as well as eating pizza with Pepperoni on it in Staring at the Future. Nonetheless, he openly states that he is a vegetarian, and his love for tofu is still very prominent in his interests.

- He enjoys steam-painting, in which he paints on a mirror using steam.
- In the original Teen Titans series, he could not speak when he changed into an animal (the only exceptions being the times that he turned into a parrot and amoeba). Yet, in Teen Titans Go!, he has repeatedly shown to be able to speak while in animal form, just like in the original comics.
- Sometimes Beast Boy paints an animal green and puts it in his place so he won't have to fight.
- In The Date he turns into a dog that resembles Scooby-Doo to get Scooby Snacks.
- This is a reference to the DC Nation short, Turn Back The Clock where he ran out of BB Snacks.
- In Pie Bros, Beast Boy worked four jobs to get money, with the last job having him work for the episode's main villain (Mother May-Eye).
