* ListOfTransgressions: In #23, a space criminal named Bellybomb is sentenced to a toxic prison planet for seventeen life sentences for extortion, armed robbery, hijacking, kidnapping, torture, murder, man-eating, brain poaching, soul thievery... and impersonating a primitive deity named Bob. After the jailers read off these crimes, Bellybomb points out that they didn't mention his unpaid parking tickets.

** A story that took place when the Turtles were little kids showed that they used to all wear red bandannas before Splinter made them were differently-colored bandannas to make it easier to tell them apart. This was a reference to the fact that all of the Turtles wore red bandannas in the original Mirage comics.

* PaintItBlack: For quite a number of issues, Raph wore an all-black ninja body suit so he could better blend into the shadows. It was a holdover from when he and the others were [[ItMakesSenseInContext intergalactic wrestlers]]. While the other three got rid of their costumes as soon as they could (they were much more outlandish than Raph's), Raph kept his for quite a while because [[RuleOfCool he liked it]]. Even after he stopped wearing the whole thing, he still wore the pants for a few issues before finally dumping it altogether. ** The latter is justified, because those several issues were how long it took for the Turtles to get home, allowing Raph to get his regular gear.

* {{Rewrite}}: It is eventually revealed that the mutagen did not change the turtles into their present form, but that the turtles instead grew into teenagehood--a blatant contradiction of the established backstory from the cartoon.

The book had an environmentalist tone, with {{green aesop}}s galore. It also introduced young readers to political topics such as [[TheApartheidEra Apartheid]], Chinese occupation of Tibet, the UsefulNotes/GulfWar, and even showing the more unpleasant aspects of Christopher Columbus' "discovery" of the Western Hemisphere and the Hiroshima/Nagasaki bombings. While the quality of the actual stories was variable and debatable, several of the concepts introduced here proved quite popular with fans of the franchise, some of whom continue to hope that elements from the book will be introduced in further incarnations.

Fixing some zero context examples. Also specifying the Knight Of Cerebus entry so that people don't think he killed off the Turtles.
* CanonDiscontinuity: The second April miniseries was so reviled that it was later retconned into being a [[AllJustADream nightmare April had]].

* CanonImmigrant: Cudley the Cowlick, as well as the idea of April becoming a martial artist herself.

* KnightOfCerebus: Null, who is a demon intent on selling away the Earth. He was beaten twice by the joint efforts of the Turtles and the Mutanimals, so he starts killing them. He doesn’t ''try'' to kill them. He ''kills'' them.

Useful Notes pages are not tropes. The only trope regarding an appearance by Adolf Hitler that I know is Adolf Hitlarious, and since this series' depiction of Hitler is anything but humorous, it doesn't count as an example.
* UsefulNotes/AdolfHitler: Plays a part in the "Dreamland" arc, in a double-act with his time-travelling brain.

* AdaptedOut: Casey Jones never appears in the series. Oddly enough though, he is mentioned in "Year of the Turtle," so the Turtles did apparently encounter him at one time, though the meeting is never shown.

* BittersweetEnding: How the series ended in the "Year of the Turtle" miniseries. The Shredder is defeated for good because he ends up in a coma and Splinter is returned to the form of Hamato Yoshi, but Yoshi's return to his human form is only temporary and he will eventually become a rat mutant again. In addition, the Turtles had lost many of their allies by this point, whether they were killed like the Mighty Mutanimals or merely had a falling out like Ninjara.

* MoralGuardians: The letters page in one issue included parents complaining about "satanic" concepts like meditation and a mutant who happened to have three eyes, and that the writers were trying to "brainwash" children by discussing Buddhism and Islam concepts in a couple issues. Fortunately, this xenophobic bitching was brushed off.

* RaceLift: In the comic book's adaptations of the cartoon episodes "Turtle Tracks" and "Enter the Shredder", the skin color of Bebop's human form was for some reason made Caucasian, when he was an African American in the cartoon. This was later changed in Archie and IDW's reprints of the comic.

* TimeyWimeyBall: One story arc had the Shredder team up with Verminator X and Armaggon, who were both villains from the future. Confusion arose when it was revealed that the Shredder that worked with Verminator X and Armaggon was actually abducted from the events of the "Incredible Shrinking Turtles" adaptation, which led to FridgeLogic in regards to Shredder's appearances between that older story and the then current one.
