Added DiffLines:

* SoundOnlyDeath: A number of times, likely to avoid having to show grisly murders on screen in a children's cartoon.
** In the Shredder's first appearance, the audience point of view cuts to outside of his temple/lair has we her the Purple Dragon he's executing scream.
** For a non-villainous example, in the season three episode Bishop's gambit, Leatherhead gets the drop on some EPF mooks who are about to execute the unconscious turtles. Cut to black, and the audience hears screaming, [[FamilyUnfriendlyDeath tearing sounds]], and guns being dropped.

* SeriesContinuityError: In season 2, Mortu and the Shredder fight each other. Mortu snarked that it took the Shredder 1000 years to find him. In season 4, a flashback showed that the two had met earlier in the '70, when Mashimi betrayed the Utrom's location to the Shredder.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Especially apparent in the first season when the show was still just getting started. Fight scenes tended to be less intricate and developed than later seasons. Also, the Turtles tended to be a lot more chatty and joked around more in battle like their '87 counterparts. Some of the humor also came off as a bit flat, as if the writers were trying too hard to make the show funny and witty. There was also a ninja instrumental theme that played whenever the Turtles went into battle but was no longer used after the first season. By the second season, a lot of these elements in the first season were done away with and the show established itself more as its own unique Ninja Turtles incarnation.

* SeeTheInvisible: Stockman's Foot Tech Ninja have cloaking devices that render them invisible. The Turtles use everything from spray paint to thermal-vision goggles to get around this.



* YouHaveFailedMe: The Shredder ''constantly'' does this, with Baxter Stockman as the most obvious and frequent example. (In fact, doing this to an unlucky Purple Dragon is his EstablishingCharacterMoment in the first episode.)
