  • Michelangelo expressed surprise that Jennika didn't name Created in Darkness "Jen and the Holograms." This is a shoutout to Jem and the Holograms, a franchise about a colorfully-dressed fictional women's rock band. A rebooted version by IDW Comics was published from 2015 to 2017, with IDW TMNT writer Sophie Campbell illustrating many of that series' issues.
  • In the scene where Big Lita returns to the future taking Rahzar and Tokka with her, there is a momentary glimpse of a new future timeline, with many characters gathered in Northampton, Massachusetts to greet her.[1] Alopex, Amy, Bludgeon, Donatello, Jay, Jennika, Casey Jones, Koya, Leonardo, Michelangelo, Mona Lisa, Mushroom, April O'Neil, Oroku Saki, Raphael, Sheena, Wanda, Zanna and Zink are present and recognizable. Other characters also appear, some of them debut appearances, and some of which are new versions of characters previously appearing in other TMNT continuities.
  • Jennika is the first mutant turtle in the TMNT franchise to be portrayed as LGBTQIA+.
