* The first encounter with the Foot Clan is both this and GettingCrapPastTheRadar. In the scene, the Turtles are assaulted by people wearing uniforms that they have not met yet. Raphael stabs a mook in the stomach, revealing it's robotic origins. This of course, allows the violence of the show, as only inanimate robots are ever harmed. The horror sets in when you realize that ''Raphael just stabbed a guy.'' If it hadn't been a robot... This is lampshaded in the dialogue:
--> '''Raphael''': "Clang? That shouldn't have made that noise..."
* Which reveals that Raph was expecting the normal sound, you know, like a splat and a scream? Yeah, it was always difficult to forget that in all the wackiness of fighting robots, ''Raphael knows what kind of sound his weapons should make when stabbing a flesh and blood person.'' From experience.

* The Rat King. Not his appearance, what he does or any of his traits, his ''name.'' If you don't know what a real life rat king is, do yourself a favor and [[ShmuckBait do not look up the answer on wikipedia.]]

\n\n* Casey Jomes humiliated Tatsu and seemingly killed Shredder in the first film. If the turtles are fearful enough of the Foot not to go back to the sewer, you can bet Casey had a damn good reason to leave town for a little while.

Added DiffLines:

** The Foot hasn't apparently been active for long enough to train a significant number of young ones anyways. Through the fight, just about any time you can see eyes through the mask, they are Asian-ish, and the Foot members have Asian-style voices (watch enough anime subbed and you can pick up on how their very grunts of pain or effort sound differently). Virtually all of the actual masked fighters are old guard, not recruited teens. At the beginning of the movie, April's report calls this a "recent" crime surge.

Added DiffLines:

** And once Casey shows up he helps turn the tide and utterly curbstomps the Foot, successfully holding the line until the Turtles can escape. Casey is older, more experienced, and used to fighting in confined alleys as part of his vigilante activities. He's also a CombatPragmatist of the highest order (ask Tatsu).

* More squicky than truly horrific, but in the first movie, April has to spend a lot of time walking ankle deep through drainage water while wearing a short skirt and high heels. Make's her animated counterpart's yellow jumpsuit seem both practical and hygienic.

* Regarding fights, the first movie makes subtle efforts to NOT portray battles as fun and games.
All of the fights have suspenseful and intense music. If goofy music is played beforehand, it was just to mislead you into thinking the Turtles stood a chance.

** Raph, again, shows marks of a great leader in the final battle against Shredder. He's the first to test the waters against Shredder. He also [[CharacterDevelopment keeps his cool]] when [[MagnificentBastard Shredder]] taunts them - and ''Leo'' of all turtles [[HiddenDepths loses his cool]]. Raph also makes the decision to throw away their weapons in an effort to save Leo - who got pinned down by Shredder.

* The fighting in the apartment is frenetic and clumsy. Which ''makes sense'' when you realize that the Turtles and the majority of the Foot are [[ChildSoldiers young ninjas]] and this is their first battle.
** As the apartment gets more and more crowded, formal ninja weapons (swords, axes, staffs and nunchucks) are discarded and more progress is made with fists and [[ImprobableWeaponUser improvised weapons]] (floor planks, cymbals, bike parts, anything that is a hard object, etc.). Also, mobility is restricted, so the melee degenerates into a brutal brawl as the fight heats up.
