* AdaptationAmalgamation: TMNT movies of the TheNineties (especially the first one) were primarily adapted from the original 1984 Mirage comics (first movie has mostly adapted ''Rapahel'' one-shot special and the firs issue) but also included elements of the 1987 animated show (logo, LighterAndSofter approach, [[{{ColorCodedCharacters}} color-coding]] of the turtles and, as well, April being a reporter and rescued by Turtles from street punks).

** "The Turtles are four once again. And yet, still not whole. A lingering doubt remains. An unknown which they can't face. Their greatest fear..."

* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Averted. While the Turtles are able to defeat individual Foot ninjas with ease (and Raph takes out a small group at once thanks to the element of surprise), a large group of them at once beats Raph nearly to death and forces the other three to retreat. Played straight later where the Turtles defeat an entire army of ninjas but then have trouble against The Shredder alone. Although with Shredder, it's played with: [[JustifiedTrope The Foot ninjas were intentionally leading the Turtles to the rooftop where he was waiting and partially tired them out so he could take them on fresh. He stepped in after his ninja were beaten and fights defensively using minimal movements and turning the Turtles' aggression against them, making him the freshest and most conservative fighter]]. But as the fight drags on, this approach starts to fail him; [[RealityEnsues he is fighting four skilled opponents half his age]], as ''Leonardo'' draws first blood, something that we never saw Shredder do to the Turtles. Even Shredder admits the Turtles would've won eventually.

** Averted ''hard'' in the 2014 reboot. Unlike every other incarnation, the turtles and Splinter are given enhanced speed and strength.

* [[DroppedABridgeOnHim Dropped the Docks on Him]]: [[spoiler:Super-Shredder]] in the second movie, who re-emerges from the waters after drinking the entire canister of ooze in his possession in a desperate attempt to kill the turtles once and for all. His strength increases but his intelligence diminishes severely--focused only on his targets, he causes the docks to collapse on him by recklessly hitting their foundations while the turtles just barely escape the destruction.

* AdaptationDistillation: The first movie keeps Hamato Yoshi's rivalry with another man for the love of Tang Shen, but there's no reference to Oroku Saki's brother Oroku Nagi, and Saki himself becomes the rival.

While it was still a money maker, it garnered some criticism from fans of the first film for [[LighterAndSofter toning down the violence and adult themes]], and although Jim Henson's Creature Shop still worked on the movie, the costumes and animatronics were considered a little inferior, supposedly toning down the gritty detail to avoid scaring children (they still looked just fine, though). Generally considered more like the goofy cartoon than like the edgy comic, the best example of this being Shredder, [[VillainDecay who went from being a badass to still a bit of a badass but a little more bumbling]]. Despite these criticisms, it is still considered a {{guilty pleasure}}.
