* TruerToTheText: Zig-Zagged; a number of the episodes are faithfully adapted from the original Mirage comics, most prominently the earliest ones. By late Season 1 and Season 2, the series started to toy with the stories more often (such as the reveal of Shredder being an alien) and create almost entirely new plots and characters, making the series more of its own thing.

** By the time of ''Fast Forward'', Baxter Stockman can be considered this as well in the episode ''Head of State''. While Bishop himself committed his fair share of atrocities, he also mentioned that Baxter Stockman became just as overzealous as he was, if not moreso, in torturing and experimenting on sentient alien beings for the sake of science. And even though Stockman went missing for several decades, the episode basically ended with Stockman being forgiven and given a new job despite all the torture and pain he put a lot of beings through during his time under Bishop.

* UniquenessDecay: Invoked and also somewhat subverted for the Turtles. It doesn't take long for the mutant Turtles and Splinter to discover that they're not the only anomalies in the world, with the discovery of ancient ninja clans like the Foot, alien races like the Triceratons and Utroms, multiple mystical entities, extradimensional locations like the Battle Nexus, long-lived immortals like Bishop, and much more. Subverted because if we're not counting the people mutated by Shredder(all of whom were cured) and Bishop, the Turtles, Splinter, and Leatherhead remain pretty much the only six mutants in the series and retain that unique status until the end.

* LamePunReaction: Michelangelo's constant puns almost always trigger negative reactions from his brothers, ranging from groans, {{Facepalms}}, and derogatory looks, to outright physical punishment such as head-slaps, flicks and pulling the ties of his ninja mask. His brothers aren't immune to it either: on the rare occasions when one of them says a bad pun they'll almost always get a similar Lame Pun Reaction from another turtle, though it's typically not as aggressive as the reactions dished out on Mikey.

** 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.
