* FightsWithChucks: It serves as a way to highlight his BrilliantButLazy tendencies. Mikey's nunchaku are comparatively more difficult to wield as weapons than sai, a bo staff or swords, yet Mikey is just as good with nunchaku as his brothers are with their weapons.

* CoolOldGuy

to:

* CoolOldGuyCoolOldGuy: In every incarnation, he's the father figure to the Ninja Turtles, and as the theme song says, "taught them to be ninja teens." Every incarnation is also portrayed as an old man, dispensing sage advice and looking after his adopted sons.



%%* PapaWolf

to:

%%* PapaWolf* PapaWolf: For all of his snark with his disciples, he genuinely loves them. Threatening them is a good way to get Splinter to show how much ass he can still kick.
** At one point during the [=1990s=] animated series, Splinter destroyed a device that could have restored him to his human form because it was a threat to the Turtles. Splinter showed no remorse for giving it up.

* BrilliantButLazy: He's usually portrayed as having great potential, but because of his more laidback personality, he'll focus on something more fun instead.
** This is enforced with his WeaponOfChoice (the chucks, see below), the laziest of the turtles is the one wielding the most complex and difficult weapon. That's not something one can do without a gift for it.

* DivergentCharacterEvolution: The Turtles were more or less identical in the original comics, the 1987 series gave them different colored bandanas, the toys based on that series gave them different skin tones, the movies gave them different body types that have continually been exaggerated into the 2007 movie, the Back to the Sewer redesigns in the 03 series, and the 2012 series.

** One very good (actually very bad) example is the 2007 movie written by Kevin Munroe, who clearly had a favorite turtle. Not only are Leonardo's traits exaggerated and warped to provide an antagonist/foil for Raphael, but his personality and background are sacrificed for the movie's plot.

* {{Determinator}}: Particularly notable in the 2003 version. He ''never'' seems to lose his smug edge or ability to concoct new schemes, no matter ''how many limbs get cut off.'' [[MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail The Black Knight]] would be impressed.
