* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope: In the original series, Turbo was a ReasonableAuthorityFigure and saved Mainframe from destruction by delaying the detonation of the bomb the Guardians planted on Mouse. Here, Turbo is a straight-up KnightTemplar, berating Bob for the latter's beliefs in reformatting viruses instead of outright deleting them, blaming that for the Viral War getting as bad as it did. Turbo also complains about the Guardians being {{Obstructive Bureaucrat}}s, despite them not really being portrayed as such in the original series.
