The Emoticlones are different sides of Raven's personality that reside within her mind. They all resemble Raven in appearance, but each one wears a uniquely colored cloak, the color of which will hint at which aspect of Raven they represent.
List of Emoticlones
Emoticlones are physical manifestations of Raven's emotions that reside within her mindscape called "Nevermore".
The Pink Raven is the embodiment of Raven's happiness. She is quite expressive and cheerful. Happy made her appearance when Beast Boy and Cyborg thought they were falling to their death. But the ground was upside-down, so they landed painfully, which gave her a laugh. Happy is more playful than Raven, and she seems to enjoy Beast Boy's company. Her domain was the forest with yellow skies, pink clouds and floating strawberries.
The Gray Raven is the embodiment of Raven's timidity, sadness, sense of loneliness, insecurity, rejection and fear. She is extremely regretful and apologetic, constantly apologizing to Beast Boy and Cyborg for even the slightest things that the real Raven has done or said to them. She holds on to Raven's deepest, most guarded feelings, such as her fear that her teammates, namely Beast Boy, don't like her. Her domain is a giant maze of indestructible stone.
The Green Raven is the embodiment of Raven's bravery and fighting spirit, making her a tomboy. She enjoys fighting, and she displays feats of strength equal to even the strongest characters in the series. She also likes to use fighting phrases to talk down to enemies or express triumph.
Brave is not all above going up against friends and allies, however. In the comic she actually kicks Cyborg hard in the face when he refuses to let go of her ankle. But unless made angry, she's pretty upbeat, outgoing, and a good helping hand.
Red (Rage)The Red Raven is the mental embodiment of Raven's inner rage, hatred, anger, pure dark, and evil essence inside of her, the inter-dimensional demonic heritage from her demon father Trigon. Rage, unlike the other Emoticlones, possesses a far darker voice and four gleaming bright red glowing eyes (Though in the comics he had two for an brief moment). Out of all of Raven's Emoticlones, Rage is the most dangerous; because of this, Raven must keep him constantly suppressed through intense meditation, for even the slightest expression of this emotion (such as in her battle with Dr. Light In "Nevermore" and Terra in the two-part second season finale "Aftershock") can cause her to go out of control and become much more demonic like her evil demonic father, Trigon. When this dark form is manifested, Raven's supernatural, mystical abilities and powers are at their strongest and most powerful.
During the events of Nevermore', Rage had escaped from Raven's control and was causing great mayhem throughout her mind in the form of Trigon, but thanks to some advice from Beast Boy and Cyborg, Raven fused with her other Emoticlones and went into White Raven form, causing her to once again gain control of Rage.
Rage later returned in the Teen Titans Go! comic book issue Red Raven (a continuation of Pieces of Me), where she escaped into the world and began destroying anything and everything that seemed related to the term "father", such as the Founding Fathers exhibit at the museum and Father's Day items in stores. This indicates that Raven hates Rage so much, even after she banished him, that she wants to cut off all ties with him for good.
Orange Raven, from as little of we know of her, has bad manners. Not only is she rude but she also mouths off to Cyborg in the comic when he calls her, "Miss Rude with attitude" (her response: "Who're you callin' rude, baldy?"). She also regularly uses sarcasm in her appearance in the comic, indicating that she is the emotion responsible for most of Raven's sarcastic quips.
Yellow Raven is the intellectual part of Raven, and unlike the other Emoticlones, she wears an additional accessory in the form of glasses. She plays the role of a problem-solver and seems to take the more logical choice in dire situations as seen in Pieces of Me where she and Timid were the only ones who did not run away from the Titans.
Purple Raven represents Raven's more outgoing feminine side and romantic interests, and like the Pink and Green Ravens, also has a loving smile. Since she was in the episode "Nevermore", it can be presumed that either Raven was in love with someone when the events of the episode occurred or she represents the more abstract sense of love as part of the emotional spectrum. She is seen flirting with Beast Boy, Robin and a recurring Goth employee in the issue from "Teen Titans Go!" Pieces of Me.
Brown Raven is the manifestation of Raven's sloppier qualities. In an issue of Teen Titans Go!, Starfire describes her as being "hygienically challenged", and in the comics she was seen rooting though a dumpster, eventually coming up with a dirty sock with a hole in the toe (and being delighted at her find) expressing how anyone could throw out a perfectly good sock.
White (Perfect Balance)
White Raven is seen in several episodes, and only when Raven is at full strength and power. She is first seen when she and her emotions united in Nevermore to combat her Rage, and Raven herself later turned white during her brief friendship with Malchior and again to battle her father Trigon after the world had come to an end. In this case, this form represents Raven when she draws on her entire inner strength and power or when she is in emotional harmony with herself, which she has displayed only in relation to her closest friends. It also represent her spirit being cleansed of her father's evil. In this form, Raven emits a white glow, and during her battle with Trigon her hair grows to waist-length.
- 1st Appearance: In the episode "Nevermore", Raven unites with her emotions and becomes a gigantic white version of herself to subdue her Rage.
- 2nd Appearance: In the episode "How long is Forever?", future Raven appears with a white cloak, although the reasons for which are not stated.
- 3rd Appearance: In the episode "Spellbound", Raven began turning white as her friendship with Malchior grew and he began teaching her magic. However by the time she found out about his true evil identity she used her new-found balance to defeat Malchior in dragon form.
- 4th Appearance: In the episode "The End, Part 3", a younger version of herself wearing white clothing was present throughout the episode and after her body and memories were restored, she once again became White Raven to defeat Trigon once and for all.
- The Emoticlones might be a reference to the Emotional Spectrum in the main DC universe, which are represented also by several colors, all wielded by light corps like the Green Lanterns and the Star Sapphires. In addition, some of the Emoticlones correlate directly with some of the lights of the Emotional Spectrum:
- Red = Rage
- Violet = Passion
- Green = Bravery/Will
- White = All combined.
- Blue = Calm/Hope.
- The exceptions are the Yellow and Orange Emoticlones, which correspond to Wisdom and Rudeness rather than Fear and Greed, respectively.
- In Teen Titans Go, Orange Raven was Sloth instead of Brown.
