Fight sequences on their own got better.

Fight sequences that had true emotional power and intensity based on previous scenes/episodes behind them took a nosedive after The Invasion. Fights in this show became sorta bland when the show stopped building up good conflict. There are exceptions, of course, like the Shredder fight in Owari and the climactic fight on the roller-coaster in The Pig and The Rhino, and probably more that I'm forgetting. I couldn't get invested in the climax in Turtles in Time despite the flashy visuals because I wasn't given a real reason to care. There weren't any true stakes, and if there were, they were largely downplayed. The Evil of Dregg had the same problem, and again, there are probably more instances that I just don't remember atm.
