The Perfect Sandwich is a celestial snack created by Robin in Teen Titans Go!. Because of its absolute perfectness, he was able to evolve into an intelligent being, and seeks to destroy all non-sandwiches because of their "flawed" composition.
He is the primary subject and villain in the episode "Sandwich Thief".
After relentless training from ancient civilizations on sandwich theory, Robin was enlightened by a dream one night... the perfect sandwich compilation came to him. It was so sophisticated that science was needed for it. After meticulous experiments, the final, most perfect sandwich was created, and need only be chilled. Robin placed it inside a refrigerator, locked away in a max security room.
One day (unknown), a low-life sandwich stealer was able to breech the highly secured room, so as to get at the highly sought after sandwich. Robin was horrified. After multiple interrogations of the other Teen Titans, he came to the conclusion that only he could've token it- perhaps his FUTURE self.
After a quick ransack of Nightwing's (he future hero alter ego), Robin was still empty handed. But unwilling to give up the search, he teleports to an alien world covered with thick forests of olive trees. While Raven is insulting his crazed logic, a deep grumbling from the ground came near by, and a magnificent temple, complete with mustard and ketchup pillars and stone bread slice sculptures, arose from the earthquake- the abode of the Perfect Sandwich. The almighty snack confirmed that it really was Nightwing who snatched him from Robin. His perfectness allowed him to develop into an advanced life form, smart enough to realize the laws of the universe- such as that all life forms are inferior to the sandwich race. The Titans realize the evil that lied in the sandwich, and sprung into action before he could kill them.
But the levitating sandwich easily thwarted them- Cyborgs laser charges were dodged, and met with a condiment blast that took him out. Beast Boy then tried to eat the sandwich in the form of a ferocious dinosaur, but was repelled, slammed into the temple, and crushed by rock bread. Starfire's Star Bolts were converted into a glowing green sandwich and shot back at her, and Raven's dark raven strike was effortlessly pinned down. It all came down to the creator... with a maniacal laugh, the Perfect Sandwich thought him as feeble as the other assailants; but Robin was learned from the masters. With a large bound, the Perfect Sandwich tried to smack him with pickles, but panicked when they were eaten. Robin's mouth enclosed the seemingly immortal sandwich, and with one gulp, was defeated.
CharacteristicsWhen Robin first put together his Perfect Sandwich, it was not all that magical. The ingredients, assembled by a true sandwich prodigy, were: slices pink salami, 3 strips of medium-cooked bacon, about 4 slices of tomato, a couple of pickles, and a fair amount of lettuce, all compacted together between two white bread slices.
The arrangement of these foods is to hard to fully contemplate for us... so much that it was able to come to life with the fascinating combo of ingredients. The Perfect Sandwich sprouted a few white eyes, with a small mouth lined with visible cheek bones.

- The foundations of Perfect Sandwich are from Korean, Chinese, Indian, and Japanese cultures from the old times. For example, a Buddha monk teaches Robin how to fold meat origami style.
- It's not crystal clear whether the Perfect Sandwich is a girl or a boy- "it's" voice sounds more feminine (voiced by Tara Strong [Raven's voice actor]), but the evil laugh sounds masculine.
