    • Donatello alludes to how the Ghostbusters' modifications could have saved them a lot of trouble recently. They used their portal technology and cloaking gear to spy on the Pantheon in the "Pantheon Family Reunion" story arc from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #71 to #72.

[15]
    • Coincidentally, Jennika was the one who carried out Splinter's order and executed Darius Dun in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #64.
