For a single episode in the Teen Titans cartoon, he was able to turn into a Sasquatch:

It's pretty often that we see him transforming into dinosaurs (examples: Teen Titans cartoon, Teen Titans GO cartoon). This power dates back very far and was mentioned in this 1982 interview with the co-creator of Teen Titans. Although we don't see him transform into a plesiosaur (which is essentially what the Loch Ness Monster is supposed to be), there's no reason I see he couldn't.

In the comic Teen Titans Go! #36, he transforms into a Gordanian, a type of alien:

In this comic Robin says that "Animals are [Beast Boy's] thing, but he's taken on other forms... Not without a lot of effort".

In the cartoon Teen Titans GO! (video), he tries to turn into a pegasus but becomes this instead:

  • I don't believe the creature is ever named in that episode. I always thought it was more a werewolf type thing. – jpmc26 Jan 28 '19 at 13:14

Yes he can, over the years he has taken the form of creatures that have no bases in the animal kingdom, such as this, a multi headed creature.

He also can do a partial transformation such as this centaur.

Here is a reddit post of some of his strange non animal transformations.


From Wikipedia:

Beast Boy has the ability to morph and transform into any animal that he has seen himself or has seen in an illustration (as is the case when he shapeshifts into an animal such as an extinct dinosaur).
