  • This is the first time April O'Neil is officially portrayed as African-American, but not the first concept of April as African-American. The original Mirage TMNT April was inspired by a biracial woman Kevin Eastman once dated, and her ethnic appearance in early issues was ambiguous and in a state of flux, but was later more consistently portrayed with a Caucasian appearance.
  • Raphael is the oldest turtle and leader of the TMNT for the first time instead of Leonardo. As stated by the voice actors, the new order of the turtles (from eldest to youngest) is now: Raphael - Donatello - Leonardo - Michelangelo.
  • This is the first time that each turtle are a different species from one another.
    • Raphael is a snapping turtle.
    • Donatello is a softshell turtle.
    • Leonardo is a red-eared slider turtle.
    • Michelangelo is a box turtle.
  • Each episode will be 11 minutes long.
  • This is the second series in which a Turtle utilizes tonfa as a weapon, the first being Michelangelo in Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation.
    • Leonardo and Michelangelo also don't use their traditional weapons in this series. With Leo wielding an Odachi instead of double Katana blades, and Mikey wielding a kusari-fundo instead of double nunchaku.
