Added DiffLines:

* FamilyOfChoice: All over the place. The turtles consider their close friends family, the Mutanimals consider themselves family, even the Foot clan treat one another like a family clan.


Added DiffLines:

* InterspeciesFriendship: All over the place given how many mutants (and aliens, etc.) are running around. Some specific examples are Raphael & Casey, Angel & Alopex, and Mikey & Woody.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulEcho: When Shredder tosses Leo off a building in their first encounter he says ''"I am... disappointed."'' Then when The turtles have their first small victory over Shredder Leo echoes, ''"I am... disappointed."''
* MobWar: City Fall is huge clash between all the city's major criminal elements.


Added DiffLines:

* MutagenicGoo: The series' staple Ooze is a recurring element in the story. Here it is an Utrominon-derived substance that can be used to do [[AppliedPhlebotinum just about anything]].


Added DiffLines:

* OnlyOneName: Given that they don't ''really'' have families most mutants have one name.


Added DiffLines:

** The Mutanimals fit the bill though. Most of them have been the subjects of cruel experimentation and all of them are outcasts sought after as commodities by shady organizations.


Added DiffLines:

* SlidingScaleOfAnthropomorphism: Mutants are all over the scale. There are both digitigrade mutants like Alopex and Splinter and plantigrade [[PettingZooPeople petting zoo people]] like Hob and Sally. Herman is basically a giant hermit crab.


Added DiffLines:

* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Any time the turtles are forced to work with Old Hob/ The Mutanimals due to Hob's nasty personality and dubious ethics. There was also that time the turtles had to temporarily work with the Foot Clan against [[spoiler: The Technodrome]]
* {{Terraform}}: Krang's ultimate plan for Earth. He has a degree of success when [[spoiler:the Technodrome manages to make Burnow Island into a survivable habitat for Utroms.]]


Added DiffLines:

* WalkingDisasterArea: Any time Bebop and Rocksteady are involved in a fight the surrounding area will be probably be razed.
* WallOfWeapons: Old Hob has walls of guns in his apartment and later Mutanimals HQ. Foot HQ has some as well for ninja weapons.

Added DiffLines:

** Krang himself. In the original cartoon he was a SmugSnake who typically played OrcusOnHisThrone and relied on Shredder to carry out his plans, while [[{{Hypocrite}} continuously berating him for his failures and kept relying him anyways]]. Krang in this series does ''NOT'' need any help from Shredder for his plans. He is also not the helpless creature outside his PoweredArmor, either, having survived in a warzone without it, and once killing a subordinate, without using any weapons, who proposed that he was helpless outside his armor.

* BattleInTheCenterOfTheMind: A couple of them, particularly when Kitsune and her immortal siblings are involved.
** In issue 66, Alopex finally confronts Kitsune over the latter's subtle manipulations, leading up to [[spoiler: using her as a brainwashed soldier against the Turtles when she rebelled against Splinter]]. Ultimately, [[spoiler: Alopex wins, driving Kitsune from her mind]].



* TheGlomp: A particularly noteworthy one in Issue 66, when [[spoiler: Alopex joyously hugs Raphael after freeing herself from Kitsune's mind control]].



* LoveConfessor: Raph casually admits to Angel that he loves Alopex (at the very least he's not denying it), but acknowledges that he and her are [[InterSpeciesRomance biologically incompatible]].

However, he also goes on to admit that he feels comfortable with her, [[BirdsOfAFeather given that they're both loners who've dealt with a lot]].



* NonMammalMammaries: Averted with Koya, Shredder's mutant falcon of an assassin. Her upper half shows no visible signs of the usual feminine attributes.



* SoProudOfYou: Splinter feels this way about his sons. Surpisingly, [[spoiler: Shredder--yes, ''that'' Shredder--is revealed to think the same of his granddaughter, Karai.]]

to:

* SlowlySlippingIntoEvil: Implied to be happening to [[spoiler: Splinter, after taking control of the Foot Clan and having to take steadily more ruthless actions to prevent other factions from taking control]]. Interestingly, [[spoiler: Splinter himself]] seems to be aware of this, [[spoiler: as he deliberately encouraged the Turtles to turn their back on the Foot Clan - and him, as well - so they wouldn't be party to his more ruthless actions]].
* SoProudOfYou: Splinter feels this way about his sons. Surpisingly, [[spoiler: Shredder--yes, Shredder - yes, ''that'' Shredder--is Shredder - is revealed to think the same of his granddaughter, Karai.]]



** Later averted...by ''[[spoiler: Splinter himself,]]'' [[spoiler: when he assists Shredder in committing seppuku]].



* VillainTakesAnInterest: The Shredder, who wants Leonardo to serve as his heir.
