!!Purple Dragons
--> A New York street gang consisting of mostly teenage thugs, thieves and killers.
--> Appears in: Mirage Comics, 4kids Cartoon, Dreamwave Comics, IDW Comics, Nick cartoon

* AscendedExtra: Like the Shredder, the Purple Dragons were one-shot characters that appeared in the very first issue of the comic book, though unlike the Shredder, it would be decades before they became a permanent part of the Turtles rogue's gallery.
* StarterVillain: The very first opponents the Turtles fought.

!!Shredder Mutants
--> Hideously mutated clones of The Shredder, dressed in modified Shredder armor and trained to work as elite Foot soldiers.
--> '''Appears in: The Mirage Comics, the 2003 cartoon, the 2012 cartoon
* BigThinShortTrio: Shiva-Shredder is huge and hulking, Claws is thin and lean and Shrimp is short.
* BodyHorror: BIG time, especially in the original comic version where they were the first few experiments at resurrecting the Shredder using clone worms. Its probably a good thing they are never seen without masks.
** Claws takes it an extra notch, he doesnt even have HANDS, his arms are horrific, lumped pincer claws.
* FragileSpeedster: Owing to his size, Shrimp is incredibly fast, but not as strong as the others.
* FlatCharacter: Besides their individual design, the three have no personality whatsoever, they're not even capable of speech.
* LeanAndMean: Claws is notably slimmer than his "brothers".
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Shiva-Shredder has four arms, each equipped with shredder claws.

* {{Badass}}
** TookALevelInBadass: In all incarnations, the turtles all go through this, but Leonardo is the one who most clearly demonstrates the trope. One example is in the first season of the 4Kids cartoon where he can barely handle fighting one of the Foot Elite, and is nearly killed trying to take on all four. By the end of the fourth season, he not only takes on all four without apparent difficulty, but also bests Karai, the incumbent Shredder, in the process.

** BadassAdorable
** BadassBookworm
** BadassInDistress: The time he was captured by the Triceratons, and the end of the Outbreak arc after being mutated a second time. Less dramatic instances are scattered throughout the 4Kids series, too, usually when it would be easy for him to solve a problem/end an episode before its time.

** BadassAdorable: Silly, loves him some comic books, childish, always willing to crack a joke and and can kick tons of asses with his nunchucks. Yup. Taken to it's furthest extreme in 2007's ''TMNT'' where Mikey is the shortest turtle and has huge adorable InnocentBlueEyes (we ''know'' it doesn't make sense, but it's ''cute, dammit'').
** CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: (4Kids series): Although he can always kick ass, his skills will occasionally take a bump as the plot requires, allowing him to take on foes that would normally defeat him or his brothers.
*** When UsagiYojimbo leaps into the Turtles' Lair thanks to a dimensional portal Don accidentally opens with a viewer he was building, Usagi is able to defeat Don, Raph and Leo (who are using their bo, sai and katana). Mikey [[PieInTheFace slings a pizza at Usagi's face]] to stop Usagi. When Usagi is curious at how Mikey beat him, and asks the name of the art used, Splinter goes, "I believe it is called...[[RuleOfFunny slapstick.]]"

BadassNormal: The only member of the comics.team who has never had any mutant powers or abnormal origins in any continuity.



* AdaptationalBadass: The movie, 4Kids and Nickelodeon versions are ''far more'' capable and dangerous than the Mirage or Fred Wolf versions of the character.



* AscendedExtra / BreakoutVillain: In the very first comic, he perishes. In all other media (save ''Next Mutation'', the third and fourth movies, and the final two seasons of the Fred Wolf show), he's the main nasty.

* GenreSavvy: 4Kids cartoon. Doesn't automatically assume the turtles are dead when NeverFoundTheBody occurs, unless he has definitive proof of it. Refuses to believe a robot masquerading as Splinter will fool anyone for a second. Will put aside his personal grudge for the turtles to work alternate angles in his schemes from time to time, unless they REALLY irritate him. What prevents him from being DangerouslyGenreSavvy is that he fails to recognize that both his daughter's increasing conflicting loyalties and pulling a YouHaveFailedMe on minions, (the same minions mind you), will eventually come back to bite you in the ass. Lastly, as Leonardo put it; "The one constant in the multiverse is the Shredder's big fat ego."

* BerserkButton: More often than not, Raphael is this. Especially when the latter disobeys him or mocks him for being a TeachersPet.

* MightyGlacier: Contrary to LightningBruiser above, Raph will supposedly have slow but powerful attacks in the upcoming "Mutants in Manhattan" video game. The introduction to the 2012 cartoon also has the other brothers doing faster and flashier moves while showing off their weapon skills.
