* Something that bugged me for a long time...in ''Secret of the Ooze'', why does Shredder threaten that woman with Mutagen? The way that specific Mutagen works, all it cause is make the woman stronger and more muscular, giving her the chance to kick his ass. Seriously, "surrender Turtles, or I will turn this woman into Olga Kurkulina while I'm blatantly holding her hostage", how does that even work?

** He's been constantly teaching the Turtles to focus on the present. The TGRI canister was interesting, but its meaning was "veiled by a shadow too deep to penetrate." However, TGRI appearing on the news made the canister was important in the present. "The past returns." Even then, it took Splinter many hours of meditation to come to the decision to reveal it.

*** Which raises the question of how ''old'' Splinter is. A giant mutated talking rat is a fictional creature, and could live for decades (or, indeed, forever). But a real rat lives two years on average, maybe five or six years at most. Within that time span Splinter has to become Yoshi's pet, watch him enough to learn martial arts ''purely through observation'', escape after Yoshi's death, and somehow reach New York to be mutated. And that's not even taking into account that rats are only partly bipedal (like bears, they can stand but not walk) so Splinter has to ''adapt'' all of Yoshi's teachings to his own stance before he can even practice them. He's not just a genius rat, he's [[MarvelComics Taskmaster]].

** There's some FridgeHorror to this: If Splinter's aging was slowed when he mutated, so were the Turtles. Turtles already live a long time, are they going to end up vastly outliving all their friends and family?

** Because they are male. That's not something that's ever been in question.

* Why should we assume the turtles in the movies are male ? Even if there was one unique female turtle, it was the only one and so cannot be a generic rule about female turtle anthropomorphism ?

* In the Mirage comics, how does Splinter know about Saki, Nagi's funeral, and the Foot? I know he was present when his master and wife were murdered, but how does he know Saki left Japan at age 18? He was able to tell the turtles EVERYTHING. He went into full details.
