** 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.

** When Shredder is blasted by April's psychic powers in ''Annihilation Earth'', his helmet falls off and his face looks the way it did in ''Tale of the Yokai'' when it was recently burned.

** In "Dinosaur seen in the sewers!" Michelangelo "fixes" the [[spoiler: DownerEnding of Crognad the barbarian by rewinding the tape to just before he gets eaten by the Dragon]]. How is [[spoiler: [[DownerEnding the destruction of earth]] at the end of season 3]] fixed? By [[spoiler: rewinding time to before it happened]].

** Partially explained in universe with the mutagen having unpredictable effects on earth due to coming from a different dimension with different natural laws. The Kraang themselves need to alter it in order to achieve the effect they want ([[spoiler: which they achieve at the finale of season 2]]). Later deliberate mutation experiments seem to be a lot more predictable later on, accidental mutations still cause very random results.

* DesignatedGirlFight: [[TheChick April's]] first battle with the Foot is against [[TheDarkChick Karai]], though feels pity after learning that Karai is Splinter's daughter, Miwa. It's more of a CurbStomp than a CatFight however. Earlier her first encounter with the Krang was against Mrs. Campbell.

This is even lampshaded "Target: April O'Neil", though it's quickly subverted when Leo joins the fray.
---> '''Karai''': This is between us girls.



* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Good or neutral mutants are fairly humanoid, while amoral characters exposed to the ooze become monstrosities. Best demonstrated by Montes: both he and Bradford mutated, but the pragmatic Bradford remained fairly humanoid as Dogpound, while the sociopathic Montes became a fish with arms as Fishface.

And then Dogpound mutates into Rahzar next season, where he becomes even more sadistic.

* FightingFingerprint: Michelangelo befriends a famous martial artist and learns one of his secret katas. When Splinter sees the move he immediately deduces that whoever taught Michelangelo must have been trained by the Foot Clan because it comes from his arch-rival Shredder's fighting style.

* LoveTriangle: Donatello was crushing on April O'Neil ever since episode 1. Then in season 2, a flirty boy named Casey Jones entered the picture. The two of them openly quarrel with each over to get April's attention, and more than one time, April's just exasperated that their CockFight messes up their missions or training.

* RockBeatsLaser: Despite wielding advanced technology, the Kraang bots are easily beaten by traditional ninja weapons, coupled with a little creative thinking.
** Averted HARD with the Triceratons and most of season 4, as the advanced technology of space as well as the ProudWarriorRaceGuy mentality of many races leads to the turtles and their allies getting their butts kicked on a constant basis.



* RoguesGallery: The Turtle's enemies typically fall into 3 categories. Aliens [[AlienAmongUs like the Kraang]], Mutants of various types like The Rat King, or the foot ninjas lead by [[ArchEnemy The Shredder]]. Robots are sometimes used by these 3 groups, but aren't sentient. The only exception is of course [[MadScientist Baxter Stockman]] who's not any of these per se, though he does work for the ninjas for a while.

* WeirdnessMagnet: The O'Neil farm in the middle of nowhere in season 3, which draws so many horror tropes into the show it's practically a GenreShift. And Don bringing mutagen there isn't even responsible for ''all'' of it.

* OrWasItADream: "Pizza Face" seems to end with the tired old AllJustADream ending, with Mikey waking up in bed and everyone unharmed. However, as he goes back to sleep, Pizza Face (or what's left of him) pops out of a pizza box near the bed, confirming it was not.
