Remember ''WesternAnimation/StreetSharks''? How about the ''[[VideoGame/Action52 Cheetahmen]]'' or ''WesternAnimation/ExtremeDinosaurs''? No? Consider yourself lucky. There's a reason Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 three]] [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 animated]] [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 shows]], each with a devoted fanbase... whereas the best ''Street Sharks'' got was a parody of being a knock off of ''TMNT'' on ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken''.

''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' (and the ''Cheetahmen'' might have become a Great had ''Action 52'' not been an ObviousBeta).

A team of heroes who fight the bad guys yet ''hide from'' the innocent bystanders. Sound familiar? So far, this is just ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'', although of course most of the X-Men at least ''looked'' human until they turned their powers on.

The story began as a parody one-shot of contemporary SuperHero comics, especially ''{{Daredevil}}'', but quickly developed into a tough action series in a FantasyKitchenSink setting, without forgetting the characters and their relationships. Once the turtles entered their most familiar incarnation - the Saturday Morning Cartoon version - well, it was a light-hearted action comedy with laughable villains and excellent theme music.

The turtles often crossed over with Stan Sakai's ''UsagiYojimbo'', a PettingZooPeople story set in FeudalJapan, where the titular ''rabbit bodyguard'' is a ronin (masterless) samurai.

Disney's ''WesternAnimation/{{Gargoyles}}'' borrowed liberally from the outcast heroes tropes established by the turtles.

To [[Tropers/MarkLungo this troper]], ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' is actually ''better'' than its inspiration.

To [[Tropers/MarkLungo this troper]], ''WesternAnimation/BikerMiceFromMars'' is actually ''better'' at least as good, maybe better, than its inspiration.

After all this time of staying in hiding so that people wouldn't freak out... it could be that society is a bit more understanding than the heroes gave them credit for. Hey, it worked for [[BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]: The students even gave her an award for saving their hides ("We don't exactly know what you've been doing, but we know we owe you one. Thanks").
