** Baxter Stockman's automated response he's programmed into the Shredder's computer system in "Exodus Part Two" is a clear nod to ''JurassicPark''

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Casey Jones is an above average fighter and when it comes to beating up thugs and lower level Foot ninjas, he's more than capable of defending himself. However, whenever he fights alongside the Turtles against stronger, tougher opponents like Karai, Agent Bishop, the Rat King, and higher ranking Foot warriors, he usually gets taken out relatively quickly while the four Turtles are able to keep up with those stronger opponents.

** Any storyline involving the Justice Force, as a group or individually, will involve them needing the Turtles to help them. The one time they ''didn't'' team up with the Turtles against the threat (the Triceraton Invasion), they got their [[CurbstompBattle asses kicked]]. It's finally subverted when in the final episode, the Justice Force's arrival is able to tip the tide in the Turtles' allies favor in a massive battle agains the Foot. Also counts as a subversion within a subversion because even though the Justice Force were able to turn the tide against the Foot in general, when they tried attacking the Cyber-Shredder himself, Cyber-Shredder pretty much knocked them down with relative ease.

Also counts as played completely straight in a subversion within a subversion sense because even though the Justice Force were able to turn the tide against the Foot in general, when they tried attacking the Cyber-Shredder himself, Cyber-Shredder pretty much knocked them down with relative ease.

** Then in "Exodus" we get Turtles v. Shredder v. Bishop. Although since Stockman is providing Bishop's technology and intel, it's almost just a continuation of the above.

Although spurned by a segment of fans of the old show who found it to be too different (which itself is rather ironic, given the 1987 series was a vast difference from the original source material), the series was generally well received (something of an aberration among 4Kids works), particularly for its long-term story arcs, clever use of the mythology, aversion of tropes like StatusQuoIsGod and ThouShaltNotKill, and strong characterization. Memorable episodes included "The Big Brawl", a TournamentArc guest-starring characters from Stan Sakai's ''UsagiYojimbo''; "Same as it Never Was", a BadFuture tale featuring the turtles' "final" battle with the Shredder; and the 100th episode, "The Tale of Master Yoshi", a WholeEpisodeFlashback focusing entirely on Hamato Yoshi and his doomed love, Tang Shen.

* GratuitousJapanese: Splinter will occasionally use this, as will the characters from ''UsagiYojimbo''. Another particular case is the Inuwashi Gunjin, named so despite the fact that they have no apparent connection to Japan besides the name. (It actually means Golden Eagle Soldiers.)

* {{Homage}}: Very many to earlier TMNT media, but special mention to homages to the comics, which have entire storylines that homages to them. ''UsagiYojimbo'' also gets some homages with characters besides Usagi appearing. There are also a bunch of movie references of varying quality.

** The Shredder Wars, hinted at in the first episode of ''Back To The Sewers'', never comes to pass due to the series ending.
