* {{Fanservice}}: April tends to wear a lot of skintight pants, with [[MaleGaze camera angles that feature them prominently.]] Lampshaded in a chase scene when she leans out the window trying to catch the Turtles fighting the Foot Clan with her phone and her bum sticking out, leading to Vernon being DistractedByTheSexy.

* DistractedByTheSexy: Vernon when struggling to control a speeding 18-wheeler down a steep mountainside. April leans out the window to try and capture footage of the Turtles fighting the Foot Clan, with her rear end prominently displayed.

* MaleGaze: Played with in the scene where Vernon is frantically driving the truck and trying to see what April is doing. The camera pans over to reveal her shooting video footage with her phone by leaning out of the window with her behind right in the camera. Vernon is fine with this, but [[DistractedByTheSexy taking his eye off the road causes them to crash]].

* DecompositeCharacter: The traditional Shredder roles are split between Oroku Saki[=/=]The Shredder, and his pupil, Eric Sacks. Sacks leads the Foot Clan openly and is the mastermind of the plans, while Saki largely functions as a bruiser who keeps threats like the Turtles at bay. This is largely due to the fact that the film originally intended Eric Sacks to actually ''be'' the Shredder, with reshoots and edits used to insert Saki back into the story after the InternetBackdraft the film received over making the Shredder [[RaceLift into a white guy]].

** The turtles are identified as box turtles, which they bear no resemblance to.

to:

** The turtles are identified as box turtles, which they bear no resemblance to.to, though this may have just been a mistake on Sacks' part (who called them such) as April identifies them as red-eared sliders earlier in the movie when she [[spoiler:realizes they are the turtles from her dad's lab]] and as pre-mutagen turtles they do appear as such.

Added DiffLines:

* TerriblePickupLines: Vern always uses these (even in times of danger) in an attempt to win over April. It doesn't work.


** April is a reporter who goes to her boss with minimal evidence, ranting about mutant turtles who are also ninjas, after being told once before she needed real evidence, and understandably gets fired. That ''would'' get you fired in real-life. [[spoiler: She doesn't miraculously get her job back at the end either, choosing not to expose her new friends]].

** After April is a reporter who goes learns of the mutant turtles' identities, she tries to her boss with tell Bernadette about the situation. However, since she has minimal evidence, ranting about mutant turtles who are also ninjas, after being told once before she needed real evidence, and evidence to back up her claims, April understandably gets fired. That ''would'' get you fired in real-life. [[spoiler: She doesn't miraculously get her job back at the end either, choosing not to expose her new friends]].


* UnexpectedCharacter: Vernon, who hasn't been seen or mentioned since [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 the 80's version]] (and wasn't even included in [[Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles the 1990 movie]] in which April was likewise a reporter), was thought to be long forgotten. So it was a surprise to longtime fans when he suddenly showed up in a supporting role in this movie.


* SavedForTheSequel: Early drafts featured Casey Jones, Beebop and Rocksteady, but all three characters ended up being written out. They'll be appearing in the sequel.

* SupportingProtagonist: It has not gone unnoticed that in a movie with CGI mutated turtles swinging nunchucks, Megan Fox was written as the Protragonist. No, not April O'Neill, ''Megan Fox''. Sadly, her main stage direction seems to have been "Could you pout a little more, Miss Fox? I know people are coming to see giant turtles swinging nunchucks, but to make it look ''really'' good we're going to need you to smooch a little more here."
