The game series dropped in popularity and sales once the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 1987 cartoon]] and [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles live-action films]] rolled out, which made (from the publishers' words) "the Turtles seem so childish that no self-respecting teenager, even if he thought the Turtles were cool, or thought the Ninja Turtle game was cool, was going to be caught dead playing it.". By 2000, Palladium Books did not renew the license, because of license costs and the perception of the TMNT.

* {{Bears Are Bad News}}: The Terror Bears [[NightmareFuel in spades!]]

to:

* {{Awesome Yet Impractical}}: The Animal Speech and Animal Control Psionic Abilities. The idea of a mutant animal being able to communicate and control normal animals sounds awesome, but you can only speak to and control animals of your own kind. Great if you're a common animal like a dog, cat or mouse, but if you're a mutant lion or tiger the only places your likely to find normal versions of your own kind is the zoo or a circus. It gets even more impractical if you're using an exotic animal from one of the TabletopGame/{{After The Bomb}} Supplements like ''Mutants Down Under'' where would a mutant [[SeldomSeenSpecies numbat]] and normal numbats in New York City?

{{Bears Are Bad News}}: The Terror Bears [[NightmareFuel in spades!]]spades!


Added DiffLines:

* {{Simple Yet Awesome}}: Psionic abilities like Telepathic Transmission (Great for players who don't want to spend Bio-E on speech) Hypnotic Suggestion, Mind Trap and All forms of Bio-Manipulation are all incredibly awesome and efficient.

* {{They Would Cut You Up}}/{{Playing With Syringes}}: Doctor Feral is probobly half the reason Mutants have to have a {{Masquerade}} in the first place! Seriously, did they base half of [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 Bishop's]] character off this guy?

* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: A human character (Doctor Feral) is considered a morally good person despite considering sentient animals to be fair game for vivisection. Mutant animals that turn on humanity in revenge for humans' actions against them (such as experimental subjects), however, are considered evil.

* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Doctor Victor Oban Feral is 'Scrupulous' in alignment and is described as 'unfailingly polite' even to his vivisection victims. He simply does not process that uplifted animals are beings worthy of moral consideration - the game backs up this moral relativism.
