Added DiffLines:

* IntraFranchiseCrossover: This movie is a textbook example with the Turtles from the 2003 animated series meeting up with the Turtles from the 1987 animated series, the two versions of the Turtles exist in alternate dimensions and meet each other when messing with interdimensional travel, in the end both versions meet the original Turtles from the 1984 comic books, they're presented as the prime Turtles, and erasing their existence would do the same to all the other versions.

** Zig-Zagged in regards to [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 the next incarnation]]; the film's events aren't brought up in spite of a number of very large plot similarities, seemingly making it come off as this trope, but the episode's writer, Peter [=DiCicco=], when asked about it, simply responded that the episode used alternate versions of the 1987 cartoon Turtles, meaning that this film is just another possibility within the ''TMNT'' multiverse.

** The film itself seems to have been completely ignored come [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012 the next incarnation]], where the 2012 Turtles meet the 1987 Turtles, and the plot similarities aren't referenced by the 1987 Turtles. The writers went with the "the multiverse is BIG" explanation, figuring that those were just another set of 80s-style Turtles.

Added DiffLines:

* SpotlightStealingCrossover: While it's a crossover between three incarnations of the Turtles, most of the setpieces and characters are from the 2003 series, a bulk of the CharacterDevelopment goes to the 2003 characters, and the main antagonist of the movie is that series' incarnation of the Shredder.

Added DiffLines:

* FlawExploitation: During the final showdown, the Turtles all draw the Utrom Shredder out to fight them directly by exploiting his pride, [[NobodyCallsMeChicken calling him a coward]]. It works like a charm.
-->'''2003 Leo''': If there's one constant in TheMultiverse, it's the Shredder's big fat ego!


Added DiffLines:

* NobodyCallsMeChicken: During the final showdown, the Mirage Turtles are able to lure Ch'rell out into the open by calling him a coward.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInDumbass: The '87 Turtles are considerably dumber in the special than they were in their cartoon. Instead of maintaining their original traits and being just as competent as the '03 Turtles, they're very childish and have one-track minds. They can barely handle any fighting as well, especially against the Foot Soldiers, enemies they regularly fought.

* LateToTheRealization: The 1987 Turtles don't even realize they're not in their own dimension until The 2003 Turtles and Master Splinter kidnap them and demand answers. Then The 1987 Turtles go into a HowWeGotHere FlashBack to explain everything that they know. Donatello then lampshades this by saying [[TheWizardOfOz We're not in Kansas anymore,]] [[AlternateDimension at least not our Kansas anyway]]

** On the other hand, the existence of a universe isn't really determined on whether it is seen or not. The universes not shown may have been omitted for more than just being the most hated incarnations. There are an ''infinite'' amount of parallel universes, after all. It could be that if there was more room to show them, those worlds could have been shown. After all, ''UsagiYojimbo'' wasn't up there, and the two franchises are pretty good friends.

* {{Badass}}: The Mirage Turtles. Examples: 2003 Raphael really loves their gritty world, and is so impressed he even tries to kiss up to them - and gets punched down like he was their Mikey. Mirage Raphael alone scares the 1987 Turtles. The 2003 Turtles get stomped as well, although they weren't trying to fight the Mirage versions. Hell, they even scared ''Ch'rell''.



* CharacterExaggeration: While the original cartoon turtles would sometimes act as silly as they do here, the movie takes that aspect of their characterization and plotlines and [[{{Flanderization}} runs with it]] (the 2003 Turtles even say: "Geez, it's like having five Mikeys now!"). The Mirage Turtles seem to go the other direction, with nearly all of their personalities subsumed in [[DarkerAndEdgier grim and gritty]] {{Badass}}, until [[FridgeBrilliance one realizes]] that they are less the turtles from the Mirage Universe than they are the turtles of ''TMNT'' issue #1, and as such, have no established personalities beyond "Creator/FrankMiller parody".
