  • Mona Lisa is based on a character from the 1980s Ninja Turtles series, who was a human who was mutated into an anthropomorphic lizard and also served as a love interest for Raphael.
  • The backpack that she carries around alongside with her astro-suit resembles the 1992 Mona Lisa action figure which had a shell molded on its back.
  • Y'Gythgba was given the nickname "Mona Lisa" by Raphael after he struggled to pronounce her real name.
  • There have been some references of Mona Lisa in the 2012 series:
    • In episode Battle for New York, when Kurtzman is showing a slide show of the Kraang's secret weapon at the time he accidentally shows a picture of a female mutant lizard wearing Kurtzman's clothing, and was posing for him, thus making Raphael gasping in attraction.
  • Mona Lisa appears to sashay when she walks.
  • Mona Lisa made her first appearance in S4, which is the same season that her 87's counterpart appeared.
  • Before season 4 even begin to air in October but in mid August, a book about "The Moons of Thalos 3" had appeared in mid summer, a fan posted some of the pages from the "Step into Reading #2 book: Alien Attack." It shows some of Mona Lisa's interaction with Raphael.
  • There have been theories about Mona Lisa might be related to or may had a relationship with The Newtralizer. It's been revealed in the episode "When Worlds Collide" that both Salamandrians don't know each other at all.
  • According to Ciro, Mona Lisa's real name in the 2012 series is gonna be Y'gythgba.
  • Mona Lisa is the only love interest of one of the Turtles who is not a human a mutant or human hybrid.
  • Raphael is the only turtle not to have that "love at first sight" when he met Mona Lisa.
  • Like her 80's counterpart she is also a scientist on chemistry.
  • On the left side on Mona Lisa's head one of her spots is in the shape of a heart.
  • Mona Lisa is the fifth girl to have multiple guys attracted to her, the other four are: April,Tang Shen, Karai, and Renet. So, far She has attracted Raphael and Mikey (It is unknown is Leo and Donnie feel the same way like Mikey)
  • Some fans believed that a background teen girl with short blond hair, who wears a pink head band, a purple top and a purple plaid dress is Mona Lisa herself.
  • In the episode "When Worlds Collide" pt2, Mona Lisa tells Raphael that "she can take care of herself", it's the same line that Tang Shen said to a human Hamato Yoshi in the episode "Tale Of the Yokai".
  • In one of the screen shots story board for "When Worlds Collide" for the ending of the episode. All of the characters outlining are colored in the matching of the characters theme color: Leo with blue; Mikey with orange; Karai with black; April with Yellow, Raphael with red; and Mona Lisa with pink.
    • It is unknown why Mona Lisa has pink instead of teal which it matches with her space outfit.
    • It could be a reference to her 87's counterpart's pink scarf.
  • It's possible that pink is Mona Lisa's true color
    • As pink symbols,sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness.
    • Pink is also the sweet side of the color red. While the color red stirs up passion, aggression, and action, large amounts of the color pink can actually create physical weakness.
