- Splinter refers Donatello by his real name, a first in the series.
- Donnie quoting, "It probably would've been cooler if you were a tiger," is a shoutout to Splinter's voice actor, Eric Bauza having voiced Tiger Claw in the 2012 TV series.
- Big Mama's vehicle is reminiscent of the Mad Max film series.
