- AHH! Robin...you aren't wearing any pants.
- ---Gizmo, Laundry Day
BiographyGizmo first appears in the episode Laundry Day, where he constructs a robot army to seize Jump City, but soon retreats with his robots at the sight of Robin nude.
In Super Robin, Gizmo appeared with the H.I.V.E. Five, robbing a bank. Later, the Teen Titans arrive to stop them. With a single missile, Cyborg easily defeats Gizmo from behind. Gizmo joined the H.I.V.E. on their many missions to attack the city, mostly by robbing banks. He was a star player on the H.I.V.E Fivers dodgeball team in Artful Dodgers. Gizmo is known to occasionally strike out on his own.In The Left Leg, he attempted to conquer Jump City with his giant robot army from Laundry Day. He is also Cyborg's most hated enemies, after Brother Blood.
In Power Moves, he is seen destroying the city with his team, as he destroyed buildings with missiles. However, he later gets injured by a Power Move explosion.
He is Robin's rival, as they are both leaders of their respective teams.

He is bald, but grey stubble from his buzzed hair is shown in some episodes. His eyes are white and have no pupils. He also wears green goggles and a silver backpack containing all of his gadgets inside. His entire costume is a dark-green one-piece suit with built in shoes.
Powers and Abilities
- Inventing: Gizmo is a technological genius capable of creating ultra high-tech devices.
- Hacking: His knowledge of computers and incredible hacking skills makes him a formidable foe for the Titans.
- Flying: Gizmo can fly with his jet-pack.
In the original series, Gizmo is seen as a snobbish, immature young boy who is short-tempered. However, in Teen Titans Go!, he hardly calls anyone, even his friends or the Teen Titans, names, in comparison to his personality in the original series. His nasty side is only shown on several occasions, such as in Go Fish! or Opposites, where he bit Robin for laughing when called five years old.
Gizmo is also shown to have good leading skills in comparison to Robin, not only being able to control his team without much of any problem, but is also capable of being a threat alone (being able to destroy Jump City with his robot army) then what he can mostly do with his team, showing he is very competent in inventing, making the Titans even have to use their Titan Robot.
Gizmo and Cyborg are natural enemies who don't manage to get along well, despite having some similar roles. Cyborg hates Gizmo the most out of all the H.I.V.E. In Operation Tin Man, Gizmo kidnaps Cyborg, who doesn't seem upset at all due to being with Jinx. Gizmo argues with Jinx to not have her boyfriend in the H.I.V.E. Tower. This angers Jinx, who walks away, wanting them to reconcile. When Jinx discovers that they instead caused a prank war, she sends both Gizmo and Cyborg to Gizmo's room. They use an invention that could kill the Titans, but mess with them instead. When they go back, they become best friends, but are seperated by the Titans.
Jinx is Gizmo's second-in-command in the H.I.V.E., and the two are very close friends. She is the only member of the H.I.V.E. who is able to influence his decisions.
In Opposites, Gizmo becomes suspicious of Jinx's secret activities, and eventually discovers she's dating Cyborg. He immediately forbids Jinx from seeing Cyborg, but comes home to the predicament of Jinx endlessly balling her eyes out. After being overcome by her tears, he gives in to her requests, allowing her to date Cyborg and promising to becomes heroes.
In In and Out, Gizmo and Jinx continuously discuss the problem of the new H.I.V.E. members (the Titans in disguise). Eventually they resort to getting rid of them, because Gizmo believes asking them to leave is rude, which Gizmo has an idea to blow up the tower, which Jinx thinks is a dumb idea, considering they spent a long time building it.
Being the respective leaders of each of their teams, the two have a rivalry with each other. Gizmo and Robin are usually opponents whenever their teams fight each other.
In Opposites, as Jinx and Cyborg argue over their relationship, they both make insults about each other's leaders. Gizmo and Robin stand by each other, and have reasonable reactions, with Gizmo biting him, and Robin laughing.
In Yearbook Madness, Robin's hatred for Gizmo is shown where his imaginary yearbook has a photo of him slamming a locker on Gizmo.
In The HIVE Five, Gizmo builds a disguise, dressing as a tall, funky man. It then shows a montage of Gizmo having fun being tall, giving high fives to everyone he meets. Robin then finds him, beating him up until he pops out of his disguise. Gizmo then explains that he was just trying to have a day off, to which Robin walks away.
