* FanDislikedExplanation: A lot of people regard the "Mutant Apocalypse" arc, which was originally intended to feature the final chronological events in the series ([[WordOfGod according]] to showrunner Ciro Nieli), as more of an "{{Elseworld}}" take on a possible future for the Turtles, rather than the canon future for the series, due to how it renders a lot of the series' events, and many of the struggles the Turtles have faced, [[ShaggyDogStory pointless]]. Not to mention the serious [[SeriesContinuityError continuity errors]] and the disposal of the main female characters. At least two of the other crewmembers, and even Nickelodeon themselves [[https://twitter.com/TMNT/status/912354814402744322 seem to agree,]] with the [[WordOfGod latter advertising the arc]] as [[https://twitter.com/TMNT/status/911251308409212928 "a 'Tale' from Beyond,"]] before officially stating it as being [[http://www.tvshowsondvd.com/news/Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles-Tales-V3-Final-Chapters/23776 another dimension.]]

* FranchiseOriginalSin: The Shredder was criticized as being too powerful in spite of the Turtles constantly shaking up their tactics or when he's logically outnumbered, and the Turtles are almost ''never'' able to put a major scratch in his plans [[spoiler:save for finally killing him in the series finale]], making it hard to care about whether or not the Turtles will eke out a win. These issues with Shredder's character can be traced back to both the series [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 predecessor]] and [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the 1990 film]], where he managed to surpass the Turtles in combat prowess, but the former had featured him frequently upgrading himself afterward in an effort to keep up with the Turtles, and the latter was outmatched by the Turtles in the sequel.

*** Throughout the show, Leo and Raph's sibling rivalry was effectively a toned down reflection of Splinter and Shredder's rivalry with Leo as Splinter and Raph as Shredder and Shredder becoming a crime syndicate leader. However,in this timeline/dimension, Leo is the brother who ends up taking Shredder's path suffering body horror, leading a gang and even wearing a mask while Raph simply focuses on surviving with whatever family and resources he has left much like Splinter in ''Lone Rat and Cubs''.

Added DiffLines:

** In Season 3, Leonardo briefly distrusts Slash, due to the fact that he'd tried to kill him and his family before, while Slash somewhat meekly admits fault, he also notes that the Mutagen messed with his head, an excuse Leo doesn't buy. [[spoiler:In the "Mutant Apocalypse" arc, the Mutagen Bomb both mutated Leonardo, and put him in a mutagen-induced rage for ''decades'' before he was finally cured of it.]]

** [[KnightOfCerebus Rat King]] started off as the smug MadScientist Dr. Victor Falco. The Turtles [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E7MonkeyBrains first meet him]] while investigating the disappearance of another scientist, with Falco seeming very friendly, helpful and concerned with his colleague's well being. However it is soon revealed that Falco himself kidnapped his colleague, mutating him into a gorilla creature and is using his mutated DNA to create a serum that gives himself PsychicPowers. After his initial defeat by the Turtles, Falco loses his job and continues his experiments on rats. An accident leaves him blind and deformed, but also grants him the ability to [[TheBeastmaster control rats]]. Falco becomes disgusted with humanity, [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E13IMonster adopts the name Rat King]] and seeks to have his rats take over the city by driving the humans away. Rat King also [[MindRape mind rapes]] Splinter several times, in order to break his spirit and turn him into his slave. After another defeat, Rat King [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S2E12OfRatsAndMen later returns again]], kidnaps several civilians, including a couple of teenagers and a small girl, and plans to experiment on them, trying to turn them into human rat hybrids. However his first attempt results in a creature that is deformed, immobile and in constant pain, but that does not deter him from continuing his experiments. Also, despite his supposed kinship with his rats, [[{{Hypocrite}} he has no problem experimenting on them and is willing to sacrifice them to gain an advantage over one of his enemies]]. Even after [[spoiler:Falco dies]], he [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S4E21DarkestPlight continues to torment Splinter]] in a final attempt to drive him insane.
