* TheUnmasquedWorld: As the show progresses, knowledge of mutants and aliens becomes more public, so much so that Muckman is constantly hounded after by reporters and fans for interviews and a military division specialized to take on aliens (the Earth Protection Force) appears during the Kraang's second invasion of New York City.

* LostAesop:
** So what was the message of "Metalhead"? Splinter points that there's nothing wrong with developing new weapons when fighting for your life, but when Donatello sends in Metalhead, it saves the other turtles and only ends up having to fight it because he got careless with it. So, technology is okay, but, what?
** The real Aesop of the episode, which Splinter went on to clarify, is that it is ''you'' who must prevail in battle, not your weapon. That is, you can upgrade your weapons as much as you want, but in the end it doesn't matter what kind of weapon you use so long as you use it properly and win.

*** To be fair, there's no reason they should know this. They're never around to see that the heart is the first thing to start moving again.



* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: After Snake mutated into Snakeweed the turtles had no qualms with potentionally lethally electrocuting him (to be fair though, they were never very concerned with his safety to begin with, given who he works for).

** Splinter has usually always been the most powerful mortal hero on the Turtles' side, but this series' Splinter ramps it up. He's a nearly unstoppable OneManArmy and is the ''only'' member of the main cast to be able to singlehandedly go toe-to-toe with Shredder and win.



** The Shredder remains well out of the Turtles league all the way through season three, when by then, past incarnations usually relied on technology (2003) or were reduced to non-threats (1987).

** Rahzar was a powerful mutant in ''The Secret of the Ooze'' alright, but he was DumbMuscle. This Rahzar is a seasoned warrior who gains the strength of the previous Rahzar but a lot more cunning and malice, making him far more dangerous.



** The Triceratons are the largest threats faced on the show to date. Zog by himself is a force to be reckoned with, and he's a low-level ''scout''.
* AdaptationalVillainy: The Kraang's counterparts in the 2003 series, the Utroms, were a benevolent, peaceful race who eventually established friendly relations with Earth. Here, the Kraang are warmongering terraformers who seek to subjugate and eventually wipe out humanity. The Utroms later turn up as a splinter tribe of the Kraang, though.
** Later its revealed the Ultrom are a benevolent peaceful race... until one of them, a scientist named Kraang, mutated themselves via mutagen to become Kraang Prime. Though heavily augmented and powerful psychic abilities, Kraang enslaved most of the race into a HiveMind SlaveRace with themselves as leader.
** Rahzar's last major role was as an infantů well, a stupid infant, who was just fighting the Turtles because of his "mama"'s orders. Here, he's the most loyal member of the Foot Clan willing to die for his master.

** Mona Lisa was a mutated college girl in the 1987 series; here, she's a ProudWarriorRaceGuy who's constantly looking for another chance to fight.
** Tokka was a strong, stupid infant in ''The Secret of the Ooze''. Here, ''she'' is a {{Kaiju}} with elemental powers and a giant lava monster who could only be defeated by [[spoiler: hurling her into a ''star'', and even then it's ambiguous if it actually killed her.]]

** [[spoiler: Zigzagged with Zog, the Triceraton scout who the Turtles traditionally take advantage of since thanks to breathing the Earth's incompatible atmosphere is not in his right mind. The Mirage and 2003 incarnations of Zog became loyal {{GuestStarPartyMember}}s to the Turtles and died sacrificing themselves to try to kill the Shredder. The 2012 Zog ultimately regains his bearings completely, and turns on the Turtles the moment he does so, and calls them out on it, and ultimately dies trying to bring about the destruction of Earth.]]
** The only other major incarnation of Mozar, his 2003 counterpart, was a NobleDemon and ultimately pulled a HeelFaceTurn when Zanramon became utterly apathetic to their troops. This incarnation of Mozar is a BadBoss, utter bigot, and [[spoiler: dies trying to destroy the Earth out of pure spite against the Turtles.]]



* AesopAmnesia: The Turtles have a nasty tendency to forget the Aesop of "The Gauntlet"; that they should be less arrogant and a little more aware of their limits. Splinter or the situation usually slaps them in the face at these times. They cut it out almost entirely after "The Mutation Situation".

* AvengersAssemble: When the Triceratons prove so powerful that [[spoiler: they immediately wipe out the Kraang]], Leo summons as many of their allies as they can gather to fight off the invasion. Cue a powerful force consisting of the four Turtles, Splinter, Casey, April, the four Mutanimals, Muckman, and Mondo Gecko arriving on the scene.

When even ''that'' fails to put a dent in the Triceratons, Splinter then forms an EnemyMine with the entire Foot Clan to bring them in as reinforcements.

** The Party Wagon, however, uses stink bombs, and bullets made from soda and mints
* AbortedArc: The Mutagen Man arc appears to have been completely dropped, as shortly after his appearance in Season 2, the show doesn't ever bring up the character again, and the Retro Mutagen is focused on other characters instead.
