Grayson outgrew it. I have to say Tim, the guy who dedueced Batman's identity based on Dick Grayson being sloppy.

Jason Todd sucked. It's a bit ifficult to compare Tim and Dick as they were Robins of different eras. Tim did earn his place though, which he has over Dick.

See but so did Dick, He was picked by batman, (see allstar batman) , He eraned his place at Batmans side, He has helped train both new robins and they look more to him then they do to batman, Tim has showen this many times in recent events.

The "he was picked" is the thing. Tim wasn't picked because Bruce saw his parents die, he earned Batman's respect by proving his intelligence before he ever became Robin.

Jason Todd made me laugh the most cause he'd kill people and be like "woops"

Drake was my favorite, but I never was a big fan of the teenage boy running around in his underpants. I say the vote goes to the one that didn't wear the revealing tights all the time.... Wait, was there a Robin that didn't do that?

I have to go with Tim Drake. He was able to discover who Batman was. Who can say that?

Bump.

Robin has a lifespan, and subsequently, Dick and Drake have both outgrown the title, and equally grew as characters. Personally, I love them as Red Robin and Nightwing, and its hard to say who was the better Robin. I reckon Nightwing is the better solo hero, but the Robin title goes too Drake for sheer audacity.

I have liked things about them all Yes even Tood But i would have to say D!CK or DRAKE

I like Damian as he is wise just evil, but I'm going with Tim Drake as the best robin of all, however i've prefered all of them in the roles they took after Robin 
 
Grayson was the original robin but came into his own as Nightwing.   
Jason Todd i hated as Robin but think is great as Red Hood. 
and even Drake makes a much better Red Robin.

Tim's my favorite. Like everyone has said, he earned his place as Robin. Dick is awesome as well, of course. Jason, I like, because of his dark side. And I love Damian. He's just... well he's kind of a d-bag. He's the Guy Gardner of Robins.

#21 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

Dick was the best Robin 
Jason was the most interesting 
Drake was a good Robin, but better as the Red Robin 
I don't like Damien... 

#22 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

I agree...mostly...I didn't like Jason as Robin at all but think he was awesome as Red Hood well before the red hair and huge helmet and cape....Tim has really come into his own since becoming Red Robin and is now my second favorite DC character....Damien can be ok at times but I still want to see him just get his a$$ handed to him

Yeah, Jason as the Red Hood is really an awesome fit. I think Red Robin is extremely underrated. It's my second favorite DC title out at the moment (the first being The Flash). 
 
And yes, Damien needs to get his ass kicked. Preferably by Drake. Still can't believe he cut his line, lmao

Damian is funny when he teams up with Stephanie.

He also had a pretty funny scene in Batman and Robin. They left Damien alone with the Joker and after Joker tried to give him the "I'm not the bad guy shtick", Damien beats him with a friggin crowbar lol

True, but at least Jason had a reason. Damien did it just to do it, lol

Dick was the original, Jason was too crazy and emotional, Tim was a great detective (and partner) and Damian is just plain bad-@##.... I'd say Dick or maybe Tim.
#38 Posted by Gylan Thomas (2727 posts) - - Show Bio

Robin Williams

I liked Tim best as Robin 
 
dick is better as Nightwing to me 
 
just like Jason is as Red Hood

I grew up in the 70's and 80's, but have to say: Tim is the best Robin by far.  Figuring out Batman and Robin's identities first thing made him a lock for life.  It was Tim that made Robin popular, not Robin that made Tim popular.  Dick Grayson was respected as Robin simply because he was the latter half of "Batman and...," and he grew into his skills.  Tim brought skills with him, and only added to them as Robin.  Dick Grayson came into his own as Nightwing, but Tim was a bada$$ Robin.

Tim The one who had his own signal light and his own crew of GCPD working directly for him. The only Robin to create his own Rogue Gallery

Definitely Tim. In a few years, I think he'll be more iconic (outside of comics) than Dick.
