Teen Titans Go! - Mr. Butt

When Blackfire (Hynden Walch) makes a surprise visit to Titans Tower only Starfire (Walch) is happy to see the evil sister who has constantly broken her heart since they were children. Under the guise of getting closer, Blackfire makes up Starfire in her image and then allows the police looking for the escaped criminal to mistake Starfire for Blackfire and cart her off to prison.

With her heart finally broken an increasingly vengeful Starfire prepares for payback while Robin (Scott Menville), Beast Boy (Greg Cipes), Raven (Tara Strong), and Cyborg (Khary Payton) attempt to teach Blackfire to be a better sister to the only person in the universe who loves her. Although their methods (including the group all dressing up like Starfire) are a bit odd, the group does finally breakthrough to the villain but not in time to stop an insane Starfire from pummeling her sister in a long-overdue revenge.

The relationship between Starfire and Blackfire is entertaining, and allowing Starfire to only forgive her sister after taking a pound of flesh offers a satisfying conclusion. However, the title's name based on Blackfire's obsession with Robin' ass feels unnecessary and shoehorned into the episode to make it a bit more edgy.
