* ImMelting: Michaelangelo tricks two foot soldiers into invoking this trope on each other in ''Sky Turtles'' in order to steal their anti-gravity boots. Strangely, the liquid remains of the foot soldiers drain away into the boots without so much as scorching them.

Added DiffLines:

*** The shading and overall drawing quality of the Japanese-animated episodes tend to be a little better than the other episodes as well.


Added DiffLines:

** Several season 3 episodes, as well as the first half of season four were animated in Dublin. Fans generally consider these episodes to be among the poorest in regards to the show's animation, due to how choppy everything moves and sloppy everything looks.
** The animation quality was the butt of the show's jokes every now and again during the earlier seasons.

* VileVillainLaughableLackey: Shredder's henchmen, Bebop and Rocksteady, may look like a menacing anthropomorphic boar and rhino, but they are actually clumsy and cowardly.

* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: A subtle running gag was for Splinter's [[{{Kiai}} hot-blooded (supposedly) Japanese kung-fu noises]] to actually be the names of famous indigenous Americans. Listen closely in a few episodes, and you can clearly hear him saying "Hiawatha" and "Sacagawea" while fighting. There's also the similarly absurd "Kur-Li Maneuver" from the episode "Blast From the Past" - a supposedly great and ancient, vaguely Asian-sounding martial arts technique which turns out to be an impression of Curly Howard from ''TheThreeStooges''.
