Beast Boy/Raven (aka BBrae) is the pairing of Beast Boy/Garfield Logan and Raven in Teen Titans and DC Comics. It is one the most popular couples in Teen Titans.

Canon

Comics

They have an on-again-off-again relationship. They face difficulties due to Raven's personal struggles against her father, Trigon. At one point, Garfield quits the Teen Titans following his breakup with Raven and rejoins his original team, the Doom Patrol.

2003 Animated TV Series

The episode Nevermore is considered the first one to have bbrae hints, but this episode could considered to have Cyborg/Raven moments too. Beast Boy(BB) and Cyborg sneak in Raven's room and find a mirror which sucks them in Raven's mind. While in Raven's mind BB meets many other forms of Raven who laugh at his jokes, or apologizes for her actions towards him. The real Raven shows up and gets mad, but when Trigon emerges and Raven fights him she tells BB and Cy to escape or they'll be trapped in her mind forever. They help her fight instead and after winning the battle BB & Raven admit to each other that they are friends. Raven clashes with Terra, who she sees as coming between Beast Boy and his loyalty to the team. In The End Raven hugs Robin and Beast Boy.

Teen Titans Go!

The relationship is more clear, arguably canon, in the more comedic, parodic spin-off series. Beast Boy is still regularly a nuisance to Raven. In the episode "Terra-ized" Raven clashes with Terra and it is revealed that Raven is secretly interested in Beast Boy romantically. In the epidose Matched Beast Boy is convinced they are meant to become a couple in spite of their differences and makes an effort to officially win her affection, nearly marrying her in the process.
