Kitten is the daughter of the villain Killer Moth and the girlfriend of the mutant Fang. Bratty, bossy and spoiled, she is perhaps the only person her father ever knuckles under.
Kitten first appeared in “Date with Destiny,” after her boyfriend Fang had broken up with her for undisclosed reasons. With her junior prom coming up, she decided to combine her unwillingness to attend the ball alone with her father’s latest scheme of blackmailing the city with a large swarm of mutant moths.
Killer Moth forces Robin to become her date in order to drive Fang jealous. This in turn invited a fight between Fang and Robin, and between Kitten and an increasingly jealous Starfire. After getting arrested, she vows to make Robin pay.

In “Revved Up,” Kitten and Fang appeared again as part of the super-villain entourage racing Ding Dong Daddy for Robin’s personal secret, but were taken out of the race when Red X cut their limousine in half.
Later on, they appeared as members of the Brotherhood of Evil. When the Brotherhood executed their strike against young superheroes all around the world. After Argent was captured in New Zealand, Kitten and Killer Moth await to ambush Starfire who came to rescue. Kitten seized her communicator to say hi to Robin who was surprised to see her. She was pleased to see he remembered her and taunted him before she attacked Starfire. Kitten then took her revenge on Starfire by attacking her alongside her father and a swarm of his mutant moths, though the latter escaped capture. Kitten was not seen when the Brotherhood was defeated implaying she defected from the group.
Teen Titans Go!
In Teen Titans Go! #15 (“Pop Quiz”), Kitten appeared to be kidnapped by a new kid-villain called “Kwiz Kid.” In the end it turned out that Kwiz Kid was her new boyfriend, and she was just using him to get Robin to “rescue her.” The tables are turned when Kwiz Kid in turn admits that he just was using her to lure the Titans to his base, as he was more interested in matching wits with Robin than in her. After discovering this, Kitten dumps him and slaps him, only to find out that he had long since escaped, and left a hologram projection of himself in his place. Killer Moth arrives and takes Kitten back home, scolding her for not telling him the truth about her fake kidnapping by Kwiz Kid.
In Teen Titans Go! #41 (“Bad Girls”), Kitten dresses up as female versions of several of the Teen Titans enemies, claiming to be their daughters: Pink X (Red X), Marionette (The Puppet King), Mad Maud (Mad Mod), Daughter Blood (Brother Blood), and Joy Stick (Control Freak). A newspaper clip on a panel shows her in a Slade-like outfit, resembling Ravager. While not seen, it is written on the newspaper clipping that she also dresses up as Gemini (Madame Rouge), and Madamoiselle Mallah (Monsieur Mallah). Despite being her enemy, Starfire develops some respect for Kitten upon seeing her girly-decorated room, which she finds adorable. In the end, it is revealed that her dress-up scheme was all a way to get her father’s attention, as Killer Moth, while spoiling her, rarely actually spent time with her or bonded with her as a father. The Titans help sort the matter out and Killer Moth promises to cut back on super villainy in order to spend more time with his daughter.
In Teen Titans Go! #44, Kitten is shown to be a contact on the Titans’ communicator, suggesting a sort of truce was made in gratitude for them helping resolve her issues with her father before. Kitten calls asking them to come save her father, who is being attacked by Red Raven.
Kitten has fair skin, blue eyes, and blonde hair. In “Date With Destiny,” she wears a floor-length, strapless pink dress, a pink headband, and a white corsage to her prom.
Kitten is the typical spoiled teenage girl; all she wants is to be adored and lavished with attention and expensive gifts. She will do anything to be better than everyone else, including making them jealous. She succeeded in that goal by bringing Robin to her Junior Prom. Kitten is very materialistic, finding Fang’s array of jewelry a true sign of his love for her. She is also a sore loser, eager for revenge on any who have ‘wronged’ her. Kitten’s sole redeeming trait is that she does really love her father, and wishes to have a closer bond with him beyond him simply showering her with material goods.
Powers and abilities
Kitten has no powers, but she appears to have a degree of fighting skill. In “Calling All Titans,” she can tame a giant moth and use a plasma whip. In the comics where she underwent various “bad girl” disguises, she is shown fighting against the other Titans, especially her Pink X identity.

- Kitten is made exclusively for the Teen Titans animated series, and did not exist in the comics, as Killer Moth did not have a daughter per se in the mainstream continuity.
- Additionally, it is unknown who her mother is, since neither Kitten or Killer Moth mention his wife nor does she make any appearance in both comic and animated series.
- Kitten’s antics in “Bad Girls” are considered a play on Duela Dent, a former Teen Titan and occasional villain, who would confound Robin by claiming to be the daughter of assorted members of the Batman rogue gallery. Robin makes a reference to this in the story, saying that maybe all these apparent villains’ daughters are actually just the Joker’s daughter trying to mess with him.
- As her father is Killer Moth, she is presumably named after the kitten moths (Furcula), which include the Alder Kitten, the Sallow Kitten and the Poplar Kitten.
- She is similar to the Powerpuff Girls character Princess Morbucks, both are spoiled brats who are more idiotic than the parent taking care of them, and most of their villainous deeds are motivated by money.
- Although she used Robin to make Fang jealous in “Date with Destiny,” some of her behaviour in the comics imply that she started to genuinely fall in love with Robin later on, albeit her love for Robin is still a twisted sort of love, or an attraction at least.
