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".

Added DiffLines:

* BroadStrokes: The 1987 universe has the Turtles known to the public, 1987!Michelangelo having his nunchaku again rather than a grappling hook, and a Technodrome attack in New York having happened before the plot started, seemingly indicating it's somewhere in the earlier seasons.

Added DiffLines:

* UnexpectedCharacter: The Mirage Turtles themselves, due to them not being as ingrained in public knowledge as most of the film or cartoon Turtles.

*** Having Cartoon All-Stars would be pretty redundant, as that show had the 80's Mikey.

** 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.
