[[folder: Hamato Clan]]
!! As a whole
* AirplaneArms: The turtles consistently run like this.
* BadassFamily: The turtles and Splinter, undeniably so. As a team of highly trained ninja this should go without saying.
* BadassNormal: Make no mistake, they're powerful turtles... But compared to the other mutants that have actual superpowers, all they have is their martial arts training, incredible teamwork, and iron will.
* BaldOfAwesome: By virtue of being hairless reptiles.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: The turtles get them while BrainwashedAndCrazy
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: All of them except Michelangelo in "Parasitica"
* CompetitiveBalance: Primarily the games based off of them, but alluded to in the show itself
** JackOfAllStats: Leo - Medium in Power, Defense, Speed, and Range
** MightyGlacier: Raph - High Power, Medium Defense, Low Speed, Low Range ([[LongRangeFighter Subverted]] by [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwing]] [[BoomHeadshot his Sai]])
** StoneWall: Don - Low Power, High Defense, Medium Speed, High Range
** FragileSpeedster: Mike - Medium Power, Low Defense, High Speed, Medium Range
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The Turtles have a rather bad habit of this, though some examples are more prominent than others.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: The Turtles, in each previous series, had more or less the same design, just with different weapons and coloration (whether it be bandanas or their own shade of green on the body). This series goes through a little more effort to diversify them, giving them their own body types, eye colors, and physical quirks.
* GameFace: The turtles switch from cartoony eyes (first used in the '87 cartoon) to all-white eyes (from the old comics and 2003 cartoon) once it's time to throw down... or for RuleOfFunny.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Let's just say Splinter's lessons aren't exactly gentle.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From turtles to humanoid turtles.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: After iconic Renaissance artists.
* TheTeam[=/=]ColorCodedCharacters
** TheLeader: Leonardo - Blue
** TheLancer[=/=]TheBigGuy: Raphael - Red
** TheSmartGuy: Donatello - Purple
** PluckyComicRelief: Michelangelo - Orange
** TheChick: April - Yellow
** SixthRanger: Casey Jones - Black
** TheMentor and BigGood: Splinter - Magenta
** SixthRangerTraitor: Slash- Black
** TeamPet: Raph's non-mutated turtle Spike - later Michelangelo's mutated cat Ice-Cream Kitty
** SignatureTeamTransport: This series' 'Turtle Van' is called the Shellraiser.
*** They also have interlocking and detachable go karts called Patrol Buggys.
* TeensAreShort: In this continuity the turtles are shorter in general and notably compared their master Splinter who is much taller. At one point when getting Raphael to demonstrate how to escape a grapple, Raph had problems getting Splinter in the same grip he had Mikey in earlier due to size discrepancies.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza, as per usual. Unlike the '87 cartoon, they don't subsist solely on pizza: Mikey was going to make omelets in "The Gauntlet," and "Cockroach Terminator" shows them enjoying ramen.
* TrueCompanions: BadassFamily plus friend.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Leo, Raph, and Don when BrainwashedAndCrazy in "Parasitica"

!! Hamato Leonardo
-> Voiced by Jason Biggs, Dominic Catrambone ([=S2E18=], [=S2E20=], video game)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_015_1284.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Gentlemen, I have a bold and daring plan!"-] ]]
* TheAce: He's TheLeader, TheParagon, and rivaled only by Raphael as the best of the brothers in terms of fighting skill.
* {{Adorkable}} \ DorkKnight: Seriously, when did you ever expect to see a version of Leonardo who's into Sci-Fi television shows and tries to emulate them?
** The face shape, smile, and [[InnocentBlueEyes big blue eyes]] don't hurt either.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Although Raphael is stronger, Leo is also showing signs of raising his skill level as the show goes on. As of Episode 13, he's the only one of the turtles to successfully land a blow on Master Splinter and holds his own going one on one later on.
** In later episodes, he's the one who frequently plays bait for high-level foes to give his brothers time to regroup and strike back together.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards all his brothers, even though he's never ''officially'' stated to be the oldest.
* ButtMonkey: Yes, even he gets this from time to time, mostly in regards to how [[NoRespectGuy very few people seem to respect him or his leadership skills]].
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Examined most prominently in "New Girl in Town" and again in "Fungus Humungous"
* DatingCatwoman: Leo and Karai connect from their very first fight. Now if only she weren't his master's worst enemy's daughter...
** [[spoiler: Master's daughter, actually.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He's surprisingly good with the snark in this series, though a big part of this may be the way his VA handles some of his lines.
--> '''Raphael''': We're giving up? ''Again''?
--> '''Leo''': Yes! It's part of my hilarious 'Let's All Live' plan!
--> and:
--> '''Leo''': "Mousers"?
--> '''Baxter Stockman''': Mousers! '''M'''obile '''O'''ffensive '''U'''nderground '''S'''earch '''E'''xcavation and '''R'''etrieval '''S'''entries!
--> '''Leo''': Sounds forced.
** Also, his interaction with Raph after he finds out about Karai:
-->'''Raph''': She tried to kill you!
-->'''Leo''': She didn't kill me, she saved me.
-->'''Raph''': She threw a knife at your head!
-->'''Leo''': No, she threw a knife ''near'' my head.
-->'''Raph''': She's in the Foot Clan!
-->'''Leo''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Nobody's perfect.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Which helps him a lot as the series goes on.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: In the Season 1 finale]]
* DualWielding: He has twin katanas as his WeaponOfChoice.
* EmotionsVsStoicism: Unlike previous incarnations, this version of Leo usually doesn't bother with being stoic.
* TheFace: He acts the most classically heroic of the turtles, including narmish dialogue.
* {{Fanboy}}: He adores the ''{{Franchise/Star Trek}}'' style cartoon ''Space Heroes''. His brothers try to use this to get him to snap out of his {{Brainwashing}} in "Parasitica" but it doesn't work.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Sees himself as the Responsible to both Mikey and Raph's foolish. And to be fair, he often is.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic.
* GoodIsNotSoft:
--> '''Leo''': "No more Mister Nice Turtle."
* TheKirk: His leadership style tends to lean toward this--not surprising, since his main source of inspiration is an {{expy}} of Captain Kirk--but he'll occasionally wander into [[TheMcCoy The McCoy]] territory when he's showing mercy at the expense of winning and even [[TheSpock The Spock]] when he's being coldly calculating.
* TheLeader: As per tradition.
* HeroicSpirit: Comes with being both a determinator AND a borderline AscendedFanboy of TV heros, even though his favorite show's protagonist is a bad example of them.
* HonorBeforeReason: At least Raph thinks so anyway.
* InHarmsWay: Leo is an adrenaline junkie, though not to the extent of being a BloodKnight. [[SpiritedCompetitor He's overjoyed at having to fight actual ninjas]] (instead of old robots), his idea of a good time is a duel on top of a building, and the kinds of girls who catch his attention are the ones who throw knives at his head.
* InnocentBlueEyes: They help solidify his youth and inexperience in this version.
* JumpedAtTheCall: When Splinter opines the need for a leader in the first episode, Leonardo raises his hand and asks if he can be it. It takes Splinter [[{{beat}} less than a minute]] to grant him his wish.
** Deconstructed later though when Leonardo begins to show signs of [[ResignedToTheCall regretting his choice]] when the burden of responsibility takes its toll on him, like it would any 15-year-old.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Once again, as per tradition.
* KidHero: All the turtles are this, but Leo fits the trope best.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Is like this when confronted with his favorite sci-fi show [[ShowWithinAShow "Space Heroes"]]
* MasterSwordsman: He's still very much learning to be one (especially when compared to the 4Kids Leonardo). However, he's showing encouraging signs of it.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: His allowing his brothers to attempt to take down Shredder while they were having an EnemyMine with Karai not only backfires, [[spoiler: but causes Karai to develop full-blown hatred for Leo and his brothers.]] [[LampshadeHanging Leo even acknowledges that he blew it.]]
* TheParagon: Discounting the above moment, Leonardo is consistently the most moral of the turtles and is the most concerned with being honorable and noble. This sometimes works against him though, [[WhatTheHellHero and he has come under criticism]] from [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Raphael]] due to his way of doing things.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Raphael's red, and also reflected in the color of their headbands.
* ReverseGrip: Much more prone to this than in other continuities.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: His beliefs that there was good in Karai are proven to be completely false.
** Not so much in the latest episode, when Karai is [[spoiler: dismayed at his decision to turn on her father; she clearly wanted to hold on to their shaky truce just as much as Leo]].
** Come "The Wrath of Tiger Claw" [[spoiler:Leo is ultimately proven right about Karai]].
*** Even with the above example, Leo is the one most likely to show empathy and fairness when dealing with enemies. That's why [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness it's a big deal]] when he makes less than honorable choices.
* SimpleStaff: He briefly wields Donatello's Bo Staff in "Pulverizer Returns"
* SpiritedCompetitor: Which is why he prefers fighting other ninja over the kraang.
* TheStrategist: Donnie is undoubtedly [[TheSmartGuy the Smart Guy]] of the team, but Leo's no slouch either. He's the one who usually comes up with the plans, whether they're high-level missions or just impromptu ways to get out of temporary jams.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Implied
* WeaponOfChoice: Twin Katanas.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Zigzagged. While most of what Leonardo does is to please Splinter, he sometimes disobeys Splinter or even do the opposite of what he says if Leonardo believes otherwise.

!! Hamato Raphael
-> Voiced by Sean Astin
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_016_957.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Was that supposed to sound tough or stupid?"-] ]]
* TheAce: Pertaining to combat skill. Clearly the physically strongest turtle in the beginning, his skills are also increasing faster than his brothers. While Leo performs better during training sessions with Splinter, Raph performs better in actual fights. For example, he was unable to detect Splinter's intent to attack him during training, while Leo was, but caught Xever's intent to attack later, when Leo didn't. He was also the first turtle to increase his skill enough to fight Xever and Bradford one on one, and currently tends to win against Xever overall, while the others team up against Bradford.
* AloofBigBrother: Partially inverted. He's younger (in fanon, never officially confirmed) than Leonardo making him an aloof little brother, but older than Michelangelo and Donatello, playing straight for them.
* AntiHero: Mainly of the PragmaticHero variety, but in "Never Say Xever" he goes a bit more towards HeWhoFightsMonsters.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Sometimes, though it usually comes back to bite him.
* TheBeastmaster: Not only is he a bud to non-mutated creatures, but it seems that he can control them a fair bit, given that in "Follow The Leader", he ''gets a swarm of pigeons to help out in not getting detected''.
* BigBrotherBully: Towards Mikey and Donny sometimes, but he's [[CharacterDevelopment getting better about it]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Michelangelo, all the time. Raph is able to overcome even his fear towards a Terminator-esque Cockroach mutant the second Mikey's in trouble. He shows this towards Donny once as well, keeping him from embarrassing himself any further than he already has.
** And yes, this even includes Leonardo, especially in regards to Karai and the last battle of the Season Finale. It seems that this instinct is what makes him a great second in command but a poor leader; he's not willing to sacrifice his brothers and doesn't want them hurt.
* TheBigGuy: As with many of his incarnations, Raphael is the strongest of the turtles; whenever there's a need for brute strength, he's the turtle to call.
* BloodKnight: The most violent of the turtles for a reason.
* CharacterDevelopment: He's becoming much less abrasive to his brothers as time goes on, Donatello and Mikey in particular. He also finally accepted Leonardo as TheLeader.
* DeadpanSnarker: One of the most common users of snark in this series.
* DopeSlap: Frequently used against poor [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Mikey]] and [[ButtMonkey Donnie]]. So much so that it's lampshaded by Mikey in [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E3TurtleTemper Turtle Temper]].
* FaceYourFears: In "Cockroach Terminator"
* FightingWithChucks: He briefly wields Mikey's nunchucks in "Pulverizer Returns"
** ChekhovsSkill: In "Target April O'Niel", he effectively uses one kusari-gama as Mikey uses the other to trap Chrome Dome.
* FlechetteStorm: Makes use of his shurikens far more often than the others. Leo even calls on him specifically to make a few throws.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Foolish to Leonardo's Responsible but also the Responsible to Michelangelo's Foolish.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric.
* FurryConfusion: He has a pet turtle.
* GoodIsNotNice: Despite his bad temper he IS still one of the good guys.
* GreenEyes: The only one to keep them from the 2003 series, since this eye color is usually associated with HotBlooded characters.
* HairTriggerTemper: To the point an episode was based around teaching him to learn to control it better.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In "Never Say Xever", he starts to show signs of this when he viciously condemns Leo's showing mercy, and expresses views more appropriate for someone like ThePunisher.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: In "Rise of the Turtles Part 2," he rips an arm off of one of the Kraang's robot suits and uses it to barricade a door, resulting in him getting looks from his brothers and Leo calling him "seriously twisted," which Raph [[InsultBackfire takes as a compliment]].
* HiddenDepths: Seems to have something of a soft spot for non-mutant animals.
* HotBlooded: To help contrast his calmer brothers.
* HypocriticalHumor: Mocks Casey's fear of rats, only to hide in his shell when Mikey shows him a cockroach. Pointed out by Mikey.
* JerkassFacade: Oh, he cares. He just doesn't want anyone else to know he cares.
* JerkassHasAPoint: In "Karai's Vendetta," when Donnie is fully prepared to abandon their mission to destroy the Kraang's base to save April from Karai, Raph quickly points out that if they do so, the Kraang will poison everyone in New York, ''including'' April.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: See JerkassFacade above.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Hurt his friends or family in any way and he WILL beat the shit out of you or die trying.
** PapaWolf: Also counts as this to an extent.
* KnuckleCracking: Of the neck variety.
* TheLancer: Once again, as per tradition towards Leo.
* MadeOfIron: The episode "Slash and Destroy" shows he can take ''a lot'' of punishment and still keep fighting.
* MeaningfulName: His nickname is Raph, say it out laud and it sounds like "wrath". Fitting for the turtle with the shortest temper.
* MoralityPet: All of his brothers, but in particular Mikey, as he is the one to cause Raphael's BigBrotherInstinct to go off the most.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: He is the "power" based brother in this series for a reason.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Says this (Without the my god part)after she alerted Tiger Claw to their location when she realizes Hamato Yoshi is indeed her real father.
TheNapoleon: Raphael is shorter than Leo and Donatello, his stocky frame only helps to make him look shorter, plus he's got the temper to match.
* OffModel: Frequently shown to have his sais holstered on his back even at times he's lost them.
* OnlySaneMan: Comes across as this during the Turtles' missions, as he is the only one not easily distracted and not prone to geeking out for one reason or another.
--> '''Raphael (interrupting Leonardo and Donatello arguing about a bomb):''' Boy, I sure hope this argument ''goes on for another four minutes and fifteen seconds!''
** And earlier in the same episode, when the turtles are ready to escape the Kraang building, Leo starts signaling April with a bird call... despite the Kraang already shooting at them.
--> '''Raphael:''' What are you doing!? (Calling up) April, throw the rope!
* PressurePoint: So far the only turtle to pull it off.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Leonardo's blue, and also reflected in the color of their headbands.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When he sees a cockroach.
* TookALevelInKindness: In "Operation: Breakout" he's noticeably nicer to Donnie and Mikey.
* {{Tsundere}}: Raph can be Tsun-Tsun towards his brother, but is Dere-Dere towards Spike.
* WeaponOfChoice[=/=]DualWielding: as the resident SaiGuy.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In "Cockroach Terminator", he is revealed to have a paralyzing fear of cockroaches. Raph even says this trope almost verbatim several times in the episode.
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: His word for word reaction when he sees the mutant roach come back for more... AGAIN.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"That's incredibly stupid! Or brilliant...Or both."-] ]]
* {{Adorkable}} \ DorkKnight: Even moreso here than in previous adaptations.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: April has yet to reciprocate or even really notice Donnie's feelings for her.
* BadassAdorable: He is an Adorkable badass ninja after all.
* BadassBookworm: The brains of the group and an effective fighter.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: In contrast to previous cartoons, where he almost never got angry, vexing this version of Don is liable to produce a sudden violent outburst.
* BerserkButton: Try to harm a hair on April and you're done. Karai tries to kill April in "Target: April O'Neil", and Donnie disarms and owns her in ''five seconds flat.''
* BigLittleBrother: He's the tallest out of the four turtles.
* BladeOnAStick: This version of his bo staff has a retractable blade on the end, allowing it become a naginata.
* ButtMonkey: Very often suffers from this.
* CloudCuckooLandersMinder: Often paired with or seen entertaining Mikey, and assigned to watch The Pulverizer. He is somewhat exasperated by this.
* CrushBlush: This happens almost every time he interacts with April.
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually to Raph or Mikey. This version of Donatello is notably less of a GentlemanSnarker than his previous incarnations, and more of a typical DeadpanSnarker.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Veering into StalkerWithACrush territory. His laptop wallpaper is a photo of himself with April, he uses his robot to get a closeup of her face without her knowing (at least, that was the intention), and he has a flowchart dedicated to getting her to hang out with him.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible to Michelangelo's foolish.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Phlegmatic.
* GadgeteerGenius: Give him enough time and resources and he can make almost anything.
* GeekPhysiques: He's noticeably tall and skinny and has a gap in the front of his teeth. Karai lampshades this in "Enemy of my Enemy", much to Donnie's annoyance.
-->'''Don''': And [[ShoutOut I'm not scrawny!]] [[CodeLyoko I'm svelte!]]
* GeniusBruiser: Since he is both an effective ninja and a genius in many fields of science.
* HardHead: His cranium must be MadeOfIron, seeing [[OncePerEpisode how often]] he gets hit in the head or the face. Especially [[NotInTheFace the face]].
** Donnie getting [[FacePalmOfDoom grabbed]] by the face has become a running gag. As of episode 20, the Kraang, Leather Head, Dr. Rockwell, [[RunningGag Leather Head]], the ''Shredder'', a disembodied Kraang arm, [[RuleofThree Leather Head]], Spy-Roach, and Leather Head ([[EspeciallyZoidberg especially]] [[OverlyLongGag Leather Head]]) have all shown complete disregard for Don's [[IncrediblyLamePun personal-face]].
-->'''Donnie''': ''Why'' do you keep grabbing my face? What is wrong with my face?!?
* {{Irony}}: He can make remarkably boneheaded decisions despite his IQ. [[LampshadeHanging Splinter calls him on this in "Mutagen Man Unleashed".]]
* InsistentTerminology: He constantly states that the go-karts he's been working on are to be referred to as "Patrol Buggies."
* InterspeciesRomance: He wants to have this with April. They've shared the occasional hug, and she's pecked him on the cheek.
* LaymansTerms: Often the one doing the translating which he is sometimes visibly annoyed by.
* LongingLook: Often gives these to April.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He falls for April right away.
* MrFixit: He can fix almost any piece of tech he finds.
* NiceGuy: Especially in regards to [[DoggedNiceGuy April]].
* NotInTheFace: Leatherhead has quite the habit of grabbing Donnie by the face during his {{Unstoppable Rage}}s, which Donnie lampshades often.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He seems to know a lot about multiple scientific fields, ranging from engineering to biology.
* TheProfessor: See above.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Sort of. Compared to a regular person, he's a 15 year old BadassBookworm Ninja Master. Compared to other 15 year old Ninja Masters, he's the scrawny [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]].
* TheReliableOne: If you need him to do something chances are he will find a way to do it.
* RedOniBlueOni: There are subtle hints of one developing between him And Casey Jones.
* SaiGuy: He briefly wields Raphael's sais in "Pulverizer Returns"
* TheSmartGuy: Once again as per tradition.
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: Gets this a lot from his brothers regarding April.
** Teases Leo in the same way down the line regarding Karai, finally seeing the fun in the gag.
* StalkerWithACrush: His relationship with April has shades of this at times.
* SuddenlyShouting: Whenever he's stressed.
* TeenGenius: A 15 year old well trained ninja who can make almost or fix any tech his brothers may need or want.
* WeakButSkilled: Donatello lacks the pure athleticism of his brothers.
* WeaponOfChoice: SimpleStaff.
* WreckedWeapon: His bo staff gets snapped in half on a regular basis.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Booyakasha!"-] ]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Even though his postion as far as ages go is rather vague, his brothers clearly view him as one.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: And he himself acknowledges it in "The Pulverizer."
* AttentionWhore: Often overlapping with ''why'' his brothers get annoyed with him so much.
* BadassAdorable: A friendly, silly, and adorable badass ninja
* {{Beware the Nice|Ones}}/[[BewareTheSillyOnes Silly Ones]]: See above.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: In "Parasitica" he not only cures his brothers of their {{Brainwashing}}, he also then saves them from the Parasitica wasps. He also pretty much lampshades this trope repeatedly to his brother's mild annoyance]].
* BifurcatedWeapon: Unusually, he can combine his two nunchucks into a kusarigama.
* BigEater: Especially when Pizza's involved.
* BrilliantButLazy: He's every bit as good a fighter as his brothers, but is also the most laid-back and prone to goofing off.
* ButtMonkey: Like Donny, he often suffers from this.
* CassandraTruth: Mikey is the first to discover the true nature of the Kraang, and when he tells his brothers, no one believes him. When they see it for themselves, Mikey quickly goes off on an "I told you so" routine.
* CatchPhrase: "Booyakasha!"
* ChainPain: His nunchucks can convert into [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kusarigama kusarigama]].
* CloudCuckoolander: And how.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: No matter how weird he acts he is still a well trained ninja after all.
* CuddleBug: His main hobby beside ninjutsu seems to be inflicting unsolicited physical affection on people.
* DeadpanSnarker: Less so than his brothers and Splinter, but he does snark occasionally.
* TheDitz: Often acts like this resulting in him on the receiving end of a...
* DopeSlap: Gets it a lot, usually from Raphael.
* FluffyTamer: He honestly thinks Leatherhead - the giant mutant alligator with anger issues - is "cute" and a "pussycat". He also successfully talks him down from an UnstoppableRage multiple times.
* TheFool: Similar to being TheDitz, he ends up as this a lot too.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish to Donatello and Leonardo's responsible.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: In "The Gauntlet".
-->'''Don''': Why do [[CloudCuckoolandersMinder I]] always get stuck with Mikey?
-->'''Mikey''': Hey!
-->'''Leo''': I don't want him. And I'm in charge!
-->'''Mikey''': Hey!
-->'''Don''': Well, then make Raph take him.
-->'''Raph''': Over my dead body!
-->'''Mikey''': [[CaptainObvious You know, I'm starting to get the feeling nobody wants to be with me.]]
* FunPersonified: As a KidAppealCharacter and the most lighthearted member of the cast.
* TheGadfly: He acts like this a lot.
* GiverOfLameNames: Most of the time, he's the only one who thinks the names he gives out are cool.
* GroinAttack: He attempts one on Metalhead, with [[NoSell predictable results]].
* TheHeart: Towards his siblings. It's subtle, but it's there.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Amusingly invoked in "Pulverizer Returns" when Mikey decides that when using Leonardo's Katanas he automatically becomes the leader of the team, much to Leo's annoyance.
* HiddenDepths: "Parasitica" shows that, in a pinch, he's got a fairly good memory and ability to follow the typically long-winded instructions given to him by Donatello [[spoiler:before the Wasp's MindControl takes effect]].
** Shellachne also indicates that he's the best cook of all the brothers.
* IWarnedYou: After his brothers see the Kraang's true nature first hand, Mikey pretty much spends the entire rest of the episode rubbing it in their faces that he was right all along.
* InnocentBlueEyes: They go a long way toward making him look ''adorable''.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: At times. Like in the second season premiere; [[spoiler: the way he tells April that they were the ones who accidentally spilled the mutagen that turned her father into a giant bat just makes one want to punch him in the face.]]
** Another prime example would be when they discover that [[spoiler: April is actually a mutant hybrid of human and Kraang DNA.]] April is understandably shocked and frightened by this discovery. So what does Mikey say? "Aw, yeah! Welcome to the family!"
* JumpedAtTheCall: He loves everything about what he does.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: He briefly uses Leonardo's Katanas in "Pulverizer Returns."
** ChekhovsSkill: He uses a sword again in "Terget Aprl O'Neil", but this one was a bit [[LaserBlade different]].
* {{Keet}}: Very high energy and talkative.
* KidAppealCharacter: Bright orange, childlike personality, constantly making jokes and having fun...
* MoralityPet: As stated above he is this to Raph.
* NeverMyFault: Has a habit of this. From saying that Donatello shouldn't have trusted him with the T-Pod (something Mikey himself wanted to test), to drinking Retro-Mutagen and blaming Donatello for not telling him that it was dangerous (the container of which had ''multiple signs on it'' telling one to ''not drink it'').
* TheNicknamer: To the point he gets annoyed when one of their foes gives himself his new name.
* PluckyComicRelief: His main role.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: As per RuleOfFunny in some episodes.
* TheSlacker: When he isn't being too high energy for his own good.
* SmarterThanYouLook: As shown in "Parasitica" and lampshaded repeatedly.
* SurferDude: Moreso than in the 2003 series, but less so than in the 80s show.
* TeamChef: Revealed in 'Mikey gets Shellacne.'
* TooDumbToLive: Seriously, he finds a glass container filled with goo in Donatello's lab. It's labeled "Super Cooled", [[InsaneTrollLogic and thinks it mean that it will make him "Super Cool".]] Somehow completely failing to notice the large array of warning labels making it clear that the goo is toxic, (one even saying, "Mikey, Don't Eat Me") he puts it on himself. It turns out to be a failed attempt to create a Retro-Mutagen, causing him to break out in zits that would have caused him to explode if Donny hadn't cured him.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza. He was the first to try it and tried to convince the others it tasted bad so he could keep the rest for himself.
* VariableLengthChain: Aside from his trademark nunchaku he can combine them (or something) into a kusarigama. That the kusarigama is frequently shown to be longer than both the nunchaku put together doesn't seem to matter.
* WeaponOfChoice: FightingWithChucks.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Frequently.
* YouthfulFreckles: To emphasize his childlike nature in contrast to his brothers.

** ''Panic In The Sewers'' shows he is terrified of his sons facing Shredder again. At the end of the episode, he apologizes for allowing his fear to infect them.
** In ''I, Monster'', [[spoiler: The Rat King]] confronts him with his fear of his sons not needing him anymore and leaving him alone.
** And in ''Showdown'', [[spoiler: Learning that Shredder kidnapped his daughter and raised her to hate him, believing he killed her mother.]]
** This is also implied to be the reason [[spoiler: he doesn't join the turtles in their assault on the Kraang. He knows his sons might not come back alive, and he can't bare to watch them die.]]
* {{Animorphism}}: From the human Hamato Yoshi to a gaint anthropomorphic rat.
* BadassBeard: A long and thin one.
* BadassGrandpa: Though he's not quite as old in this incarnation, he retains the distinction of being one of the few people able to go one on one with Shredder, himself capable of taking on all four turtles at once without breaking a sweat.
* BladeCatch:
** Does this with two fingers with a kama that April lost hold of while trying to find her a weapon in "Baxter's Gambit".
** Does it again in "Booyakashowdown". With his ''teeth''.
* BrokenAce: At first glance he appears like an infallible force of wisdom, honor, and good but whenever his past comes up he becomes plagued by indecision and fear.
* BrutalHonesty: Dismisses the Pulverizer as a "[[SophisticatedAsHell doofus]]", but to be fair, he's right.
* CaneFu: One that looks to be made of jade/emerald.
* CatchPhrase: "WHAT IS GOING ON IN HERE?"
* CodeName: He was going by Splinter before being mutated in this series.
* ConfusionFu: While he mostly uses the martial arts he mastered as a human, when pressed he'll start [[TheGlovesComeOff fighting like a rat]], throwing off opponents used to more conventional fighting styles.
** While his weapon appears to be a cane, he's also got a few tricks hidden in it. Not a surprise to a fellow master ninja, but to anyone else...
* CoolOldGuy: Displays these traits rather often.
* CombatPragmatist: See the image quote.
--> '''Splinter''': *surprise attacks Leo and pins him by the neck with his staff*
--> '''Leo''': ''OW!''
--> '''Splinter''': Was that fair?
--> '''Leo''': No!
--> '''Splinter''': Did I win?
--> '''Leo''': ... I see your point.
--> '''Splinter''': Seek victory, not 'fairness'.
** Which is justified and goes into FridgeBrilliance as he knows that some warriors, like the Shredder, would sooner drop out of a fight than play fair. He wants his sons to be willing to do anything to keep themselves safe, even if it means stooping to their level once in a while.
* CompositeCharacter: Like in the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 original cartoon]], Hamato Yoshi mutated into Splinter. He's also the one who bought the turtles from the pet shop instead of simply finding them in the sewer, taking the place of Chet in most other continuities.
* CursedWithAwesome: Being a rat, he's able to move far faster, shown in his fight with [[spoiler: Shredder]]
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Don''': All due respect, Sensei, but I can't keep fighting advanced alien technology with a [[SimpleStaff six-foot staff.]] I was kind of hoping to upgrade my weapons.
-->'''Splinter''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint A seven-foot staff? Interesting]]
-->'''Don''': Actually, I was thinking of something a bit more hi-tech.
-->'''Splinter''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ah! A solar-powered staff!]]
* {{Determinator}}: He's lost his family and his humanity leaving him with no choice but to live in the sewers with four mutant turtles. And he managed to make a new life and family out of it. The show does not gloss over this.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Downplayed, especially in comparison to other mutants. All his fighting prowess comes from his time before mutating but he can make good use of his tail to get the better of the turtles in training sessions. [[spoiler:Also uses his rat teeth to snap Shredder's blade in their fight.]]
* FacialMarkings: As a rat his fur pattern creates this effect.
* TheGadfly: He sometimes gets a kick out of riling his sons up.
* GoodIsNotNice: He can be pretty no-nonsense and tough on his sons when he wants to be, but only to teach them important lessons. There's also his lines in the season 1 finale trailer:
-->'''Splinter''': With the world at stake, the ''only'' thing of importance is that you complete your mission, [[WellIntentionedExtremist no matter what you have to sacrifice]]...[[WeHaveReserves or who]].
* HonorBeforeReason: This version of Splinter makes a point of consistently averting this trope. First when he urges Leonardo to [[CombatPragmatist seek victory, not fairness]] and then again when after Leatherhead is brought to the lair and he tells the turtles it's important to show compassion, his response to whether or not they'll still chain him up is:
-->'''Splinter''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Of course. I'm compassionate, not insane.]]
* InTheHood: His clothes have a hood, which he dons [[spoiler: during his assault on Shredder's building in the season one finale.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: This version of Splinter is OneHeadTaller than the turtles.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Splinter, Karai Is Your Daughter]]
* TheMentor: To the Turtles obviously.
* MyGreatestFailure: His anger-fueled attack on Oroku Saki after he insulted him in front of Tang Shen caused their rivalry to intensify, eventually leading to the murder of his wife and the loss of his daughter at Saki's hands.
* NowThatsUsingYourTeeth: In "Showdown," he not only catches one of Shredder's blades with his bare teeth, he ''breaks'' it with them.
* OneManArmy: In "Showdown", [[spoiler:he delivers a CurbstompBattle to the ''entire Foot Clan'' (except Shredder) by himself.]]
* PapaWolf: As shown most prominently in Leatherhead's debut episode.
* PressurePoint: Used both in battle and on Raph when he's being ubnoxious.
* PrimalStance: A variant. When fighting the Shredder and [[TheGlovesComeOff taking off the gloves]], he runs on all fours and claws at him like an actual rat in between more disciplined martial arts..
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: To the Turtles.
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: He is taller than all of his sons despite being a rat.
* SophisticatedAsHell: For all his calmness and big words, he still calls the Pulverizer a "doofus."
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Much like in [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 two]] [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures previous]] adaptations, Hamato Yoshi survived his run-in with The Shredder and [[CompositeCharacter mutated into Splinter]].
* SternTeacher: The opponents that the turtles fight are no pushover, so it's justified. An example of this is shown in Panic in the Sewers.
* TeamDad: Once again as per tradition.
* YoungerAndHipper: This incarnation of Splinter is much younger than previous ones, but nevertheless still qualifies as both a BadassGrandpa and CoolOldGuy.

!! April O'Neil
-> Voiced by MaeWhitman
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_019_673.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"My life has gotten really weird."-] ]]
* ActionGirl: Grows into this, starting with Splinter agreeing to train her as a kunoichi.
* BadLiar: At least around Irma, who by her third appearance has figured out that April's got friends that she's hiding from her, in part because of April's rather poor excuses as to why she has to suddenly leave.
* CastingGag: Probably unintentional, but it's worth noting that Mae Whitman's mother Pat Musick voiced Mona Lisa in the [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 original series]].
* TheChick: Towards the turtles as usual, but a more action oriented one than in the past.
* CompositeCharacter: Shares some traits with the female turtle Venus de Milo from NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation. Like Venus, she is treated as the fifth member of the group, uses the tessen as her weapon, and has [[TheEmpath latent psychic powers]]. She also wears her hair in a ponytail, which is similar to how Venus had part of her bandanna braided to resemble a ponytail.
* CurbStompBattle: On the receiving end of one in "Karai's Vendetta".
* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments sometimes.
* DesignatedGirlFight: Her first fight was on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle with Karai. In their first rematch she's able to get in a few good hits, but is still outmatched overall.
* DesignatedVictim / DistressedDamsel: Occasionally, but nowhere near as much as in the 80s show.
* TheEmpath: Which is [[spoiler: a rather rare ability in this series.]]
* FieryRedhead: More subdued than most cases, but still has shades of this.
* GaussianGirl: How Donnie first sees her.
* HalfHumanHybrid: In "The Kraang Conspiracy" it's revealed [[spoiler: she's half Kraang because the Kraang abducted and experimented on her mother, altering her DNA.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: Donatello really wants her.
* HeroicResolve: During her [[CurbStompBattle fight]] with Karai in "Karai's Vendetta." No matter how many times Karai knocks her down or beats her senseless, April just keeps getting back up to try again.
* InSeriesNickname: Given the nickname "Red" by Casey.
* LoveInterest: For Donnie, expanding on the hints of a PrecociousCrush from the 03 series. While she's closest to Donnie out of the four turtles [[AllLoveIsUnrequited she doesn't reciprocate]] [[InterspeciesRomance his feelings.]]
** And now Casey Jones is in the picture as well...
* MacGuffinGirl: "TCRI" reveals her to be this. Taken even further in "Karai's Vendetta" where she now has the Foot after her as well, to the point that [[spoiler: Splinter and Leonardo tell her she'll need to stay in the lair indefinitely for her own safety.]]
* MissingMom: She doesn't have a mother. [[spoiler: Her revealing this to Karai catches her off guard long enough for her to take Karai down.]]
* NoSell: She is shown in [[spoiler: "Karai's Vendetta" to be immune to an acidic Kraang liquid, apparently at least in part because she is effectively half-Kraang. In "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", she is revealed to be immune to mutagen, as well.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Initially to Donatello. Becomes less oblivious as the show progresses.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Before her dad was kidnapped at least.
* PluckyGirl: As per tradition.
* RealityEnsues: In addition to April's training as a Kunoichi averting InstantExpert, her later fight with Karai makes no attempt to dodge the hard truth that someone who's been training for years and has been in actual fights is going to beat someone who has never been in a serious fight and has only been training for at most a few months.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Pretty much stated to be one for [[spoiler:Miwa]] by [[spoiler:Splinter]] towards the end of "Baxter's Gambit.'' though not in the hurtful kind of way.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Leo, at least until he [[spoiler:tells her that the girl he's interested in is a Foot Clan member]].
* TightsUnderShorts: Her most common attire.
* TookalevelinBadass: Is now training Casey Jones, who has trouble keeping up with her. Compare to Season One.
* TomboyishPonytail: More action oriented than obvious tomboy though.
* UnfazedEveryman: After adjusting to the shock of meeting the turtles.
* WeaponOfChoice: She goes through several choices in "Baxter's Gambit" before settling on a [[CombatHandFan Japanese metal war fan]].
* WhatTheHellHero: Gives one to the Turtles in "The Mutation Situation" [[spoiler: after she finds out that they were the ones who spilled the mutagen on her dad and turned him into a giant bat, albeit accidentally, to the extent that she declares their friendship over and swears that she never wants to see them again. However, she forgives them in "Target: April O'Neil when Casey tells of an event that happened between him and his best friend that ended their friendship.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In "Fungus Humungous" it's revealed she has a fear of bats [[spoiler: probably caused by her father's mutation.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: With both the Shredder and the Kraang after her, the turtles and Splinter decide that she must stay with them in the sewers for her own safety, at least until the crisis is resolved.
* YoungerAndHipper: This series makes her a young teen about the same age as the turtles.
* YouthfulFreckles: Partly going with the above.


!! Casey Jones
-> Voiced by [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Josh Peck]].[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/casey_8073.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"All my life I knew I was meant for something greater. ''This'' is my calling, my ''destiny''. My city is ''infested''."-] ]]
* AdmiringTheAbomination: He notes how cool Mutagen Man is, even during the fight in which Mutagen Man is trying to kill him.
* AmazonChaser: Liked seeing April beating up Mutagen Man with her Tessen fan.
* BadassNormal: He has none of the formal training of the Turtles or Splinter, but manages to go up against Mutagen Man, who is several times larger than him and has acid powers. He also takes out a bunch of Foot Bots the first time he meets them, armed with nothing but a hockey stick no less, putting his natural talent even above the Turtles who outright lost to the Foot Bots fighting as a team the first time around.
* BashBrothers: With Raphael after chasing down a runaway footbot together
* BigBrotherInstinct: In this variation, he apparently has a little sister he's looking out for.
* BloodKnight:
** Was seen fighting Mutagen Man instead of running away. Brave boy...
** Taken up a notch in his next appearance, where he thoroughly enjoys fighting an army of robot foot ninjas.
* BookDumb: He meets with April because he needs a tutor, not because he wants to get better in school mind you, but just so he doesn't get kicked off the hockey team. He's able to correctly identify the guys' names as Italian, which is probably more than your average high schooler can do,
* CatchPhrase: "GOONGALA!"
* DarkIsNotEvil: Has a punk aesthetic and his battle gear consists of a skull head themed hockey mask and black and war paint underneath, but is a good guy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He hits April with a puck and tells her she should have gotten out of the way. And when talking to April later, says he'd like to become a hockey player... [[BloodKnight Or a Bounty Hunter]].
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Casey is worried about the mutants and ninja robots hurting his dad and sister.
* FireForgedFriends: With the rest of the Hamato clan. He befriends April after being forced to take her on as her tutor and they bond over both trigonometry and the attacks of Mutagen Man and the Footbots. Later with the turtles, Raphael sees him as a punk and Don as a rival for April and the others see him as an intruder to their secret lair, but after helping save the lair from being discovered by the foot even Splinter welcomes him into the fold.
* {{Foil}}:
** As opposed to [[IJustWantToBeNormal April]], he seems to ''love'' the idea of [[IJustWantToBeSpecial being attacked by aliens, robots, and mutants]].
** He's also this to Donnie, his rival for April's affections, being a BloodKnight who playfully flirts with her in contrast to Donnie's SmartGuy who obsesses over her without making any significant moves to win her over.
* TheGift: Casey's combat abilities, despite apparently being self-taught, are at least on par with that of the turtles.
* GoodIsNotNice: Seems to have a fairly antagonistic personality.
* HiddenDepths: It says something when the BookDumb bad boy chooses to write his personal journal in ''cursive'' (which some adults have trouble with), instead of plain script. He also cares more about the safety of others than his initial appearance implied. He also seems to have enough smarts to produce retractable roller blades and a makeshift ''taser''.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Most of the jabs he makes at Donny also apply to himself so far. He once insults Donny by calling him 'stick-man' (ignoring that he uses a hickey stick as a main weapon)
** Pointed out by Donnie when he insults Donnie's teeth gape; Donnie responds by calling him 'cave mouth.'
* IKnowMaddenKombat / ImprobableWeaponUser: Uses sporting equipment, roller blades, and an improvised taser.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Hits two Foot Robots... With ''hockey pucks he launched into the air''.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Throwing a metal pipe at Mutagen Man and fighting a squadron of Foot Bots with hockey sticks and pucks? Yep, that's the Casey Jones long-time TMNT fans know and love.
* {{Jerkass}}: In his debut, he's smacking hockey pucks around and doesn't care who gets hit, nor apologize and tells April that she shouldn't be standing in the way of his pucks when she was rightfully standing in front of her locker.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: In ''Target: April O'Neil'', he tells April about the time he hit his ex-best friend during a hockey game and his voice and face indicate he's remorseful even though it was an accident. Later, in ''The Good the Bad and the Casey Jones'', he immediately saves Raph from getting run over by a subway and when Raph returns the favor, he's grateful.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: In "Target: April O'Neil," he recounts to April an accident he caused between him and his best friend that ended their friendship and remarks that "sometimes things happen that you can't control." As Donnie had previously stated the exact same thing to April, April slowly realizes that she's making the same mistake Casey's friend did and reconciles with the Turtles.]]
* JerkJock: In his first appearance he's smacking hockey pucks around the hallway without a single care for who he hits.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial:
--> "Who wants to be normal anyway?"
* LeanAndMean: In stark contrast to the 2003 version, who had a muscular built.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Zig-Zagged. He's aware bizzare things like the Mutagen Man and the robot Foot Ninja, but is entirely unaware of what's behind either, or that the turtles exist until his third appearance.
* LoveInterest: For April based on 25+ years of turtle history. This time the relationship is framed as a foil to Donnie who can't really act on his crush on April being a giant talking turtle.
* MacGyvering: For one, his taser appears to be made from a ''potato masher'' of all things.
* MultilayerFacade:
** He still has his signature hockey mask, but also has skull-shaped face paint under it.
** TheReveal of which seems to be a big ShoutOut to the comic, {{Batman}}/{{Grendel}} - the image is nearly identical (if messy), and the "blaaaaaaargh!" is the same.
* MythologyGag: He's on the hockey team. In previous incarnations, he wore a hockey mask and used a hockey stick as his primary weapon.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Briefly appears in the new season 2 opening, making his debut in "Mutagen Man Unleashed".
* RedOniBlueOni: Seems to be a subtle Red to Donny's blue
* RollerbladeGood: He has retractable skates this time around.
* RuleOfCool: The point of the hockey mask, apparently.
* ScaryTeeth: Well, not too scary, but he's missing his front teeth, [[TruthInTelevision As many hockey players do in real life]].
* ShockAndAwe: A new toy in his arsenal is a taser built in under one of his gloves.
* TheSouthpaw: As seen when he is writing in his journal, Casey is left-handed. It's also used as [[spoiler: ASinisterClue RedHerring.]]
* SpikesOfDoom: A few on his outfit.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Raphael per canon, but pretty much has this relationship with all four of them.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: For some reason, Casey is scared of rats. Hilarity ensues when he meets Splinter.
* YoungerAndHipper: Like April and Karai, he's now in the same age group as the Turtles.
* YouthfulFreckles: He has been given some freckles in addition to being aged down for this series, like April.

!! Spike
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spike_9273.png]]
Raphael's ordinary pet turtle. %%For tropes specific to Slash please put it in his section of the "Other Villains" folder.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: From cute normal turtle to a homicidal monster. It's implied his StartOfDarkness was much earlier and mutating just gave him an outlet to express himself beyond chewing on his leaf in agreement with Raph's venting.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: While Spike is a rather stoic turtle he can be clearly seen to be smiling while watching [[spoiler: Raph lashing out against his brothers when he gets frustrated with them and started hitting Mikey with a rolled up comic book. Later on in the same episode he makes a sound from his mouth that later evolves into the roar he does as Slash.]]
* FurryConfusion: The mutant turtles' pet normal turtle.
* HiddenDepths: Since he is a normal turtle he can't really express his own opinions or thoughts to Raph or the others so he appears to be a simple, silent, and adorable ordinary turtle. Turns out [[spoiler: he ''really'' isn't happy about how the other turtles have been treating Raphael and [[MythologyGag has been learning ninjitsu by watching Raph practice so often around him]].]]
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler: Spike never really liked his old name and after mutating he tells Raphael that he would prefer to be called Slash from now on.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Spike's mutation from being an ordinary Tortoise into becoming the homicidal Slash.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: As an ordinary adorable turtle.
* TheStoic: Spike is a pretty calm turtle and doesn't react to much. [[spoiler: Turns out he's just been really good at [[NotSoStoic bottling up his anger and frustration all this time]] which is what lead to him becoming Slash.]]
* SurrogateSoliloquy: "Spike, chew on your leaf if you agree with me".
* TeamPet: For the Hamato clan. [[spoiler: Until his mutation into Slash.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Leaves.
* TurtlePower: [[spoiler: More so as Slash than Spike.]]

!! Ice-Cream Kitty
--> Voiced by Kevin Eastman
A stray cat that April rescued and gave to Michelangelo, who almost immediately accidentally mutated it into an ice cream creature. Apparently still tastes good.

* {{Catapult}}: In his first appearance, Mikey throws him at the Rat King, who Ice-Cream Kitty proceeds to shred.
* CreatorCameo: He's "voiced" by Kevin Eastman, one of the creators of the ''TMNT'' franchise.
* RecurringElement: This series answer to Klunk. An orange stray cat that ends up belonging to Mikey. Though they took in a different direction.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: For Michelangelo, [[IntendedAudienceReaction and the fans,]] the other turtles not so much.
* TeamPet: Taking over from Spike who left just 5 episodes before it was introduced.

!! Kirby O'Neil/[[spoiler: Wing Nut]]
->Voiced by Creator/KeithSilverstein
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kirby_8484.png]]
April's scientist father who gets kidnapped by the Kraang.

* {{Badass}}: In "The Gauntlet".
* BadassBeard: As you can see in his picture.
* BadassMustache: As seen as part of the above.
* BaldOfAwesome: Mostly on the top.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy[=/=]ManchurianAgent: [[spoiler: In the last three episodes of Season 1 before the Turtles are able to snap him out of it.]]
* ButtMonkey: His misfortunes include being kidnapped, being rekidnapped, having his mind controlled, and finally [[spoiler: Turning into a mutant that has to be caged]].
* DisappearedDad: A non-fatal example to April.
* DistressedDude: Was a captive of the Kraang during the first season.
* FieryRedhead: Inverted. His teenage daughter is a lot more fiery than he is.
** Played more straight in "The Gauntlet", however. See PapaWolf.
* KidnappedScientist: One of many.
* MythologyGag[=/=]ShoutOut: Most likely named after the character Kirby from the original comics and 2003 cartoon, who in turned was based on Creator/JackKirby.
** [[spoiler: After turning into a bat Mikey calls him Wingnut, a reference to a Bat alien from the '87 series and Archie comics. The name doesn't stick, though.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He looks a lot like Creator/JossWhedon.
* PapaWolf: In "The Gauntlet".
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: The show leads us to believe that the Kraang need Kirby for their plans, but it's revealed in "TCRI" that the person they ''really'' need is his daughter, April]].
* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: For some strange reason his figure of [[spoiler: mutant form is named "Kirby Bat" even though Mikey named it "Wing Nut" in the series itself, much to Donnie's displeasure.]] What makes it so odd is that this means they ''chose'' to use a LateArrivalSpoiler over keeping the preexisting characters name, see the MythologyGag spoilers. However, [[spoiler:Mikey does use the "Kirby Bat" name in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman".]]
* TookALevelInBadass: The Gauntlet.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler: His mutation into a giant bat in "Mutation Situation". He is finally restored to his human form in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman".]]
* VaguenessIsComing: His warning to April in "The Gauntlet" is just that something terrible is about to happen.

!! Metalhead
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metalhead2012_1212.png]]
A robot turtle made by Donatello to fight in his place after he gets tired of breaking his bo staff.

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler: Subverted, in his debut, Metalhead is just a drone, and when his connection to Donnie is severed, a Kraang takes control of it and turns it against the turtles, and Donatello must destroy it. After he's been rebuilt Donnie installed a rudimentary AI in him, and he remains docile. In Metalhead Rewired he upgrades the AI and the trope seems to be played straight when he reneges to join the Kraang, but it's once again a subversion as he was doing so to free all their prisoners.]]
* ArmCannon: One of the various weapons in its arsenal.
* BadassAdorable: At least Michelangelo sees him this way.
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler: Gets re-built to take on the Kraang in the Season 1 Finale]]
* BallsOfSteel: Mikey tries to take him down with a GroinAttack, with [[AgonyOfTheFeet predictable results]].
* BerserkButton: According to Donatello, he "doesn't like being tickled"
* TheCameo: In "The Pulverizer" and "TCRI"
* CurbStompBattle: He dishes out two, first to all the Turtles except Donnie (which Donnie even lampshades), and then again to a group of Kraang that only ends when [[spoiler: Donnie loses Metalhead's signal after his antenna breaks off.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: Aside from being destroyed his own creator, he's also taken down with the very weapon that Donatello's dissatisfaction with led to his creating Metalhead in the first place.]]
* FireBreathingWeapon: Metalhead can switch out his lasers for a flamethrower.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Metalhead's primary weapon. Notably when Donnie is in control the lasers are bluish white, but when the Kraang take control the lasers become the same fuchsia color of the Kraang's weapons.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Starts out as Donatello's robot, then gets hi-jacked by a Kraang, and then gets rebuilt to fight for the Turtles again]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Keeps the portal open so the turtles can escape, even though it means he'll be destroyed by the Kraang.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: He was destroyed by his own creator. Not only that but Donnie also used Metalhead's own weapons against him during their fight.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: He's finally disabled when he's driven into the broken half of Donnie's bo staff.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Comedic example. Due to Donnie's inability to control the speakers inserted into Metalhead, he often winds up being way louder than necessary. This is fixed later on.
* NoSell: Metalhead is shown to be completely immune to nearly all forms of harm, including multiple attacks from Leonardo's katana and repeated shots from the Kraangs' laserguns.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He is noticeably shorter than any other character in the series thus far, even Raphael.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears walking around Donnie's lab in the new season 2 opening.
* RobotBuddy: To Donatello, the rest of the turtles don't take to him as well.
* RoboticPsychopath[=/=]KillerRobot: [[spoiler:After the Kraang take control of him.]]
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: He's pretty death prone, but Donatello always rebuilds him.
* WalkingArmory: FrickinLaserBeams, FireBreathingWeapon, RocketPunch, MacrossMissileMassacre... he's pretty much got it all.
* WeNeedADistraction: [[spoiler: Serves this role in the Season 1 finale]]

!! Dr. Tyler Rockwell
->Voiced by Creator/FrankWelker
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rockwell_9660.png]]
A scientist and former colleague of Dr. Falco. Used as a guinea pig for Falco's modified mutagen, becoming a mutant chimpanzee with psychic powers.

* BalefulPolymorph: Instead of giving him the appearance and attributes of a primate, the mutagen experiments that were performed on him turned him into one which, psychic powers aside, appears completely normal, showing no signs of having retained any of Rockwell's intellect or personality.
* ChainedByFashion: Has shackles on his arms, legs and neck. Justified because he's an escaped test subject.
* CombatClairvoyance: With justification, see below.
* TheEmpath: He reacts to other people's emotions, which allows April to connect with him due to possessing a similar ability.
* EyesOfGold: To indicate his unusual nature and abilities as an empath.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: The only clothes he is wearing are what survived his transformation and captivity.
* ManiacMonkeys: Even after the Turtles learn he's not just a mindless monster, he's still quite dangerous when angered.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant chimpanzee.
* TragicMonster: He was just an ordinary scientist before being turned into a test subject, and now he knows the feelings of everyone around him regardless of whether its positive or negative.
* TheVoiceless: He's one of the few Mutants in the show so far who can't talk.
* WasOnceAMan: Before his transformation.

!! Murakami
->Voiced by Sab Shimono
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Murakami_5316.png]]
A blind noodle chef targeted by the Purple Dragons and later Xever.

* BlindAndTheBeast: April takes the turtles to Murakami's restaurant specifically because he is blind and can't see that they aren't human. [[spoiler: He later figures it out through his other senses, but is not afraid and is very grateful to them for saving his life]].
* CoolOldGuy: He seems to be an understanding, reasonable, and nice guy in addition to being a great chef.
* DistressedDude: How the turtles' met him and after Xever captured him.
* HeroicBystander[=/=]HandicappedBadass: When Karai gets into his shop, he's quite suspicious of her, especially her order of Turtle Soup. When a fight breaks out, he throws the soup in her face and stalls her long enough for April to escape, all the while pretending to be a klutz via blindness.
* InnocentBystander: His primary role in the series.
* LennonSpecs: Sunglasses to hide/show that he is blind.
* SupremeChef: Two words- "pizza gyouza."

!! Pigeon Pete
->Voiced by AJ Buckley.
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pigeon_Pete_9346.png]]
A mutant pigeon and ex-prisoner of the Kraang. He delivers a message to April from her father and helps her and the Turtles find him.
* {{Adorkable}}: He ''loves'' bread crumbs and tried to ''extort'' the Turtles with his love of them.
* AlliterativeName: Since he is a Pigeon named Pete.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Easily distracted by bread. Doubles as ThroughHisStomach.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Bulging eyeballs with red sclerae, yellow irises and horizontal pupils.
* {{Flight}}: Well he is still a pigeon.
* FourFingeredHands: As a result of being turned into a human-based mutant.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: For decencies sake, since he would have never worn clothes as a pigeon.
* InstantMessengerPigeon: And a mutant one, at that.
* MythologyGag: Named after Michelangelo's pigeon friend from the episode ''What's Michaelangelo Good For?'' of the 1987 cartoon.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Out of the mutants in the series, he has far more human-like aspects, such as human-like hands and an exposed chest and upper body.
* WasOnceAMan: Inverted; he started out as a pigeon.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"[[SayMyName Kraaaaang!!!]]"-] ]]
A baby alligator the Kraang used as a guinea pig for the mutagen, and presumably other experiments. He managed to escape the Kraang, taking the power source for the dimensional portal with him.

* TheAloner: Though Mikey attempts to break through to him, [[spoiler: at the end of both of his appearances, Leatherhead is still alone.]]
* AxCrazy: When in one of his berserker rages.
* OneManArmy: Him against an entire army of Kraang. [[MookHorrorShow Feel sorry for the Kraang.]]
* TheBerserker: If the Kraang are involved or spoken about around him he becomes one of these, much to his displeasure.
* BerserkButton: Just the mere mention of the Kraang makes him fly off the handle and attack anyone close to him.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He was subjected to horrific experiments by the Kraang.
* DarkIsNotEvil: But he's [[GoodIsNotNice not quite nice, either]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: To Mikey.
* TheDreaded: Of a sort. Given his temper and instability, when the turtles go to him for advice in "[=TCRI=]", they're all unsurprisingly scared of him.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Before appearing in the series, he was in "Dark Horizons", a flash game on the Nickelodeon website as the final boss [[AdaptationalVillainy and seeming villain of the piece]].
* EmotionalBruiser[=/=]BruiserWithASoftCenter: When not in Berserker mode, he's a genuinely nice guy.
* GameFace: He has a second set of eyelids just like the turtles that make his eyes appear completely white when his BerserkButton has been pressed and he loses control.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's bitter, anti-social, and has a HairTriggerTemper.
* GutturalGrowler: He has a very deep voice.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In "TCRI" where he goes through the portal to Dimension X to keep anything else from coming out of it.]]
* ImmuneToBullets: The Kraang typically fire innumerable rounds of laser fire into him. He doesn't even flinch. Possibly justified because ''normal'' alligators' scales can withstand a lot of punishment and he's a heavily powered up and mutated one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his berserker rages and subsequent aloof behavior he is a nice guy who doesn't want to hurt others, aside from the Kraang.
* LizardFolk: As a mutated Crocodile.
* LightningBruiser: Fast enough to fight evenly with the turtles and strong enough to [[spoiler:fight Traag evenly, a 20 ft. tall rock titan that required three turtles working together to knock down.]]
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From Baby Crocodile to human-croc mutant.
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: Invoked by him in-universe. He tries to calm himself by listening to peaceful music from a record player.
* OddFriendship: Develops one with Michelangelo.
* ReluctantPsycho: He's well aware of how unhinged he is and is ''not'' happy about it.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: A mild case. While he's not evil or bad, he's not the nicest of folks, and is prone to going into berserker rages that make him a danger to everyone around him.
* RunningGag: His [[NotInTheFace grabbing Donnie by the face]] and manhandling him when in his BerserkMode.
* TragicMonster: He can't control his berserker rages that are a result of the Kraang's abuse so he tries to keep his distance from others for their own safety.
* UnstoppableRage: Even he can't stop it.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After being flushed down the toilet by his owner's parents he was captured, mutated, and tortured by the Kraang resulting in what he is today.

A Turtles {{Fanboy}} who is desperately attempting to be a superhero.
* AdaptationalBadass: [[spoiler:The [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 1987 Mutagen Man]] only had the ability to transform into other people temporarily. This Mutagen Man has HollywoodAcid, and gets ''more'' dangerous when he drinks Mutagen, acquiring actual control over the acid and super strength, along with a natural affinity for being NighInvulnerable.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:This Mutagen Man is far more psychotic and dangerous than his previous incarnation.]]
* AppropriatedAppellation: [[spoiler:He calls himself Mutagen Man when told to stop stalking April, most likely remembering Mikey's nickname for him.]]
* AscendedExtra: The '87 Mutage Man was a VillainOfTheWeek. WordOfGod says in this show he'll play a big role in season 2.
* AscendedFanboy: Of the Turtles.
* BadassBoast: He gives some good ones to the Purple Dragons, but he can't really follow up on them.
* BadassNormal: Subverted. He's an awful excuse for a fighter who only ''tries'' to be a {{Badass}}.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: He wanted desperately to become a mutant and as the Turtles explicitly point out in the episode, he got his wish.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: [[spoiler: His transformation into Mutagen Man in a nutshell. While being far more resilient to physical harm, he needs mutagen to continue fighting.]]
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Upon his transformation into Mutagen Man, his body is a slimy clear liquid with his brain and other organs visible, his eyes and lips are on top of stalks.]]
* BrainInAJar: [[spoiler: As Mutagen Man.]]
* CannonFodder: [[spoiler:The Foot Clan drafted him as this, and he was too stupid to know what the Japanese term meaning it meant, and didn't know what the actual term meant.]]
* TheChewToy: Almost every scene he has ends up treating him like this, especially [[spoiler: his transformation into Mutagen Man.]]
* CloudCuckoolander: He isn't the brightest boy, is the turtles' personal LoonyFan, and his plans don't make that much sense most of the time.
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler: His arms become these after his transformation into Mutagen Man.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of Zach from '87 (a turtle fanboy who tries to help, only he's ''much'' less useful) and [[spoiler: Mutagen Man]].
* TheDitz[=/=]TheFool: Even more so than Mikey. Splinter even calls him a doofus.
* DrivenToMadness: [[spoiler: Possibly. Its not clear if he turned on the turtles because he blamed them for what happened or because he's just feral now.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: The mutation makes him feral.]]
* FailureHero: He ''wants'' to be a hero like the turtles but has none of the skills or training required to be one so his attempts to "help" the turtles often do more harm than good.
* FatIdiot: Well, He appears overweight which makes his attempts at being a hero look even more pathetic, too lazy to put in all the training and work needed to be a vigilante, and too dense to see why it is necessary no matter how much Donnie tries to teach him. He even happily confesses to wearing muscle padding under his turtle hero suit.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: To the turtles.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:After being doused with mutagen, he becomes NighInvulnerable.]]
** [[spoiler:"Mutagen Man Unleashed" shows that, when he drinks Mutagen, he obtains super strength, can control his HollywoodAcid along with having actual hands, and [[ImplacableMan seems hard to take down for long]].]]
* HeroicWannabe: As mentioned he wants to be a hero just like the ninja turtles, hence his (amateurish) superhero-like costume based on an [[MythologyGag older design]] of the turtles.
* HiddenDepths: During his training montage with Donnie, he made a picture of himself with muscles on a sketch pad that was well drawn and mentions driving/delivering ice cream from a truck which at the very least requires a driver's license.
* HollywoodAcid:[[spoiler: His whole body's made of it as Mutagen Man.]]
* HulkSpeak: [[spoiler: As Mutagen Man]].
* IdiotHero: Deconstructed rather horrifically in the end.
* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: In a tragic way. His mutation into Mutagen Man is played DeadSerious with no jokes at his expense unlike previous victims. Mikey even ''stops joking'' after seeing what a TragicMonster he had become, only snarking when Leo ordered a distraction; even then, he still talked in a rather somber manner.]]
* LanternJawOfJustice: Since his design seems to be a parody of standard superheroes.
* TheLoad: To the turtles, especially Donatello, who ends up having to train him.
* MobileSuitHuman: [[spoiler: He gets this as a means of moving around]].
* MultilayerFacade: He still wears his turtle uniform under his [[spoiler: Foot Clan]] uniform.
* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler: As of "Mutagen Man Unleashed," his sanity has deteriorated to the point where he blames the Turtles for his mutation.]]
* NighInvulnerable: [[spoiler:As Mutagen Man, his body is acidic and impervious to harm.]]
* LoonyFan: Of the turtles.
* TheMole[=/=]TheInformant: Becomes one to the Turtles [[spoiler: while with the Foot Clan. Not that he's that great at it though.]]
* {{Ninja}}: [[spoiler: He joins the Foot Clan, albeit as a glorified errand boy and CannonFodder.]]
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Shows up in the new season 2 opening [[spoiler: as Mutagen Man in Donnie's lab.]]
* RunningGag: "The Pulverizer Returns" sees him twice running off down the same alleyway and causing a car crash both times due to his complete inability to be stealthy.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Him trying to expose himself to the mutagen despite being warned how dangerous it is. Particularly egregious since Donatello repeatedly tried to save him from being turned into a Mutant yet he ''still'' willingly subjected himself to it.]]
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler: The most tragic of them all. Not even the Shredder was treated as seriously as him after his mutation.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: [[spoiler:It's pretty clear that Mutagen Man isn't very smart, but he makes up for it with super strength, [[ImplacableMan incredible difficulty to take damage]], and his HollywoodAcid.]]
* VaderBreath: [[spoiler:He's given a synthetic voicebox to allow him to speak as Mutagen Man, though the result is scratchy and labored.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Rivals [[spoiler: The Rat King]] for the amount of character spoiler tags on this page.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Since he wants to be like the ninja turtles he tries to fight like them even though he has little practice or patience to learn how to use ninjitsu correctly, which is why Donnie tried to act as his "Sensei".
* WholeCostumeReference: His costume looks like the Turtles from 80's cartoon, right down to the letter on the belt.

!! Irma
* AdaptationDyeJob: Irma's hair is black this time as opposed to being a brunette in the 80's cartoon.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Doesn't show up in person until midway through the second season, but but closeup picture of her eye [[FreezeFrameBonus can briefly be seen on April's cellphone in "Mousers Attack!"]]
* EncyclopaedicKnowledge: Rattles off a lot of information about rats off the top of her head carrying over as TheSmartGirl of the human allies from the 87 show.
* TheKlutz: Though not as much as her original incarnation.
* MotorMouth: As a function of being a [[EncyclopaedicKnowledge walking encyclopedia.]] See above.

->Voiced by Creator/PaulReubens

A larper obsessed with the role-playing game Mazes and Mutants who became a sparrow mutant after exposure to one of the scattered canisters of mutagen. He attempted to make the Turtles play with him by having them fight for their lives in a mental construct. After his game was beaten, the Turtles told him to stop forcing other people to play with him and parted with him on good terms.

* AlliterativeName: His real name is Martin Milton.
* AntiVillain: He may have put the Turtles through a lot of trouble, but in the end he only wanted other people to play with him.
* AuthorAppeal: The creators created him due to expressing interest in a "magic" character, and the role playing games they played in their youth.
* HandicappedBadass: He is missing a leg, which he has replaced with a wooden stick.
* HeelRealization[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: He is forgiven by the Turtles when he realizes that he shouldn't force people to play his game.
* WasOnceAMan: He is first seen in his mutant sparrow form. We don't find out that he used to be human until he later tells the Turtles his story near the end of the episode.
* YourMindMakesItReal: His powers in a nutshell.


[[/folder]]

[[folder: The Foot Clan]]
!! As a whole
* TheTeam: Classic FiveBadBand during Season 1
** BigBad: Shredder
** TheDragon: Dogpound/Chris Bradford, who is later demoted to TheBrute and one of ThoseTwoGuys.
** TheBrute: Fishface/Xever, later joined by Dogpound/[[spoiler:Rahzar]].

** {{Mooks}}: Foot Soldiers.
** TeamPet: Hachiko (Shredder's dog).
* EvilCounterpart: To Hamato Yoshi's clan (The Turtles and Splinter)
** Shredder to Splinter: The BigBad and BigGood behind the scenes that judge the outcome of missions. Dogpound also compares them as being equal in skill but having totally different values in the Season 1 Finale. They were formerly best friends.
** Bradford to Leonardo: Initially TheLeader on the field and the master's most trusted disciple
*** Dogpound to Michelangelo: ButtMonkey to the team though Dogpound is unintentional and Mikey mostly embraces it. They also used to be 'Facebook' friends.
** Xever/Fishface to Raphael: The [[TheLancer leader's]] [[TheDragon foil]] and [[TheBigGuy most aggressive]] [[TheBrute fighter]]. The even acknowledge it when forced to work together.

** Karai to April: Share a [[DaddysLittleVillain father]] [[ReplacementGoldfish daughter]] relationship to the master, and deeply mourn the loss of their mother.

*** Karai to Leonardo: The new Leader on the field, have the closest relationship with the master and are the most skilled. They both wanted some sort of truce between the two clans at one point, but after having to defend their families from each other they develop a personal feud on top of the family one.
** Chromedome to Metalhead: similar names aside both are as krang tech based MadeOfIron mechs.

!! The Shredder/Oroku Saki
->Voiced by Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_021_31.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Your skills are impressive. But they will '''not''' save you."-] ]]

-> ''"There is undoubtedly a fascinating story behind how my old nemesis came to teach ninjitsu to four mutant turtles. Perhaps I will let one of you live long enough to tell it."''

Once the best friend of Hamato Yoshi, jealousy over Yoshi's marriage to Tang Shen, who they both loved, prompted him to turn to the dark side, and attempt to kill Yoshi. A fire that broke out during the battle disfigured Saki, and seemingly killed both Shen and her and Yoshi's daughter. Subsequently becoming the head of the Foot Clan, Saki moved to New York to hunt down and kill his old nemesis after seeing a news broadcast that implied that Yoshi is still alive.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: He cuts through parts of a building sign like butter.
* AbusiveParents: Implied towards Karai, especially since he threatened to hurt her if she didn't obey him. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes She still loves him though.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Splinter and the entire Hamato Clan. Anything he does is aimed at either killing Splinter, or making him suffer.
* {{Badass}}: He's a very formidable combatant, as seen in "The Gauntlet".
** BadassBaritone: He's voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson. What did you expect?
** BadassCape: Though he [[TheCoatsAreOff sheds it]] when he fights the Turtles.
** BadassNormal: He appears to be a normal human, despite his extreme strength, speed and ferocity. And he's proven more dangerous than mutants and aliens the size of cars.
** BadassInANiceSuit: In Xever's flashback explaining his StartOfDarkness, Shredder, in silhouette, appears to be wearing a rather nice suit.
** HandicappedBadass: He's clearly blind in his right eye, and it doesn't make him any less formidable or scary.
* BadBoss: He makes it a clear point that he would not hesitate to mutilate his lieutenants if they disappointed him. He threatens to harm Karai in the same way if she doesn't eliminate Leonardo the next time they meet. Keep in mind that Karai's his daughter.
** In the episode "Pulverizer Returns!", he's gathering mutagen to use on his minions. If you're lucky, mutagen turns you into [[http://images.wikia.com/tmnt/images/3/3f/Fishface_mutates.jpg this]] or [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130418202651/tmnt/images/2/21/644650_531150070257262_373557306_n.png this]]. If you're ''unlucky'', you turn into [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130512183449/tmnt/images/e/ef/Timothy_Mutagen.png this]].
** [[spoiler:"The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman" has him detonate Baxter Stockman's Mutagen collar when all he probably really needed to do was tell Baxter to make more dangerous or intimidating mutants, and he barely even hesitates when Baxter starts begging Shredder not to do it.]]
* BaldOfEvil: Judging by the end of the first episode and Xever's flashback, his hair is gone, most likely due to the burn scars he's suffered. [[spoiler: Confirmed in the Season 1 finale when Splinter knocks his helmet off]]
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: Pulled off two at the end of Season 1, where he had the Kraang lure the turtles in and stage a breakout in their prison so the turtles would rescue Kirby O'Niel, who was being controlled by a device planted by the Kraang on him, with the plan being for him to kidnap April once he was taken to the turtles' lair, since he knew Splinter would come to his building to rescue her. It worked like a charm, the only thing that came close derailing it being the Newtrilizer breaking out.]]
* BigBad: As per tradition of the ninja turtles' franchise, he seems to be this.
** BigBadEnsemble: So far sharing this with the Kraang, as both of them have served as the main recurring threats and both playing a part in the turtles' origin.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: His trademark tiger-claws, which here are bigger and come in a pair as opposed to just one. He can also have a third blade pop out of his gauntlets, and ''all'' of them are retractable
* BluntYes: When Karai [[spoiler:finally learns who her real father is and demands to know if it's true]], his only response is a "Yes." completely devoid of hesitation.
* BrutalHonesty: When Karai asks him if he would punish him even if she's his daughter. He notes that she's ''especially'' the case.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Threatens a captured Kraang with it to get him to talk.
* TheComicallySerious: Rather rare, but two instances stand out in "Panic In The Sewers" and "Karai's Vendetta", respectively:
--> (Learning that Dogpound was defeated) "...They defeated you with ''go karts'', and a ''water balloon''?"
--> [[spoiler:(Upon his first time speaking to one of The Kraang) "Do they ''all'' speak like this?"]]
* CompositeCharacter: His vocals and basic design take cues from the 1987 Shredder, but the clothes have a red tint similar to the original comics, while having the combat prowess and effectiveness of the films and 2003 incarnations.
* CoolHelmet: Like follows the samurai-like kabuto/helmet style of his previous incarnations.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: At the very least, Splinter sees him this way.
* CurbStompBattle: As per Ninja Turtle tradition, his first fight with the turtles is one of these in his favor.
* DirtyCoward: Beats on Splinter after he's been weakened by a poisoned-dart.
* TheDreaded: Even so far that ''Splinter'' had a nightmare of him slaughtering the turtles.
* EntitledToHaveYou: Had this mentality concerning Tang Shen, hence why he murdered her [[GreenEyedMonster when she chose Hamato Yoshi over him.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Much of his scenes are usually threatening his men or being uninterested [[RevengeBeforeReason in anything but revenge]]. [[spoiler:"The Gauntlet" finally showcases him in a fight, and [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence the fight scene itself]] further shows his hunger for revenge as well as how brutal and quick on his feet he is.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Possibly his daughter Karai, but it's not clear. [[spoiler: Ultimately subverted in the Season 1 finale where it's shown that he's just using her to get back at Hamato Yoshi]].
* EvilCounterpart: Is this to Hamato Yoshi/Splinter. Both are equally skilled combatants, and both are the leaders of their respective clans. Chris Bradford/Dogpound even remarks on their similarities to Xever/Fishface, stating that Splinter is just as skilled as Shredder, but "doesn't have the stomach to finish the fight."
* EvilFormerFriend: To Hamato Yoshi/Splinter.
* EvilIsBigger: While not LargeAndInCharge, he's still much stockier than Splinter is while being the same height as him.
* EvilIsPetty: Of the RevengeBeforeReason variety.
* EvilLaugh: Doesn't usually do it, but does it much more frequently in the finale, where [[spoiler:he states that his revenge is already complete, as he's raised Splinter's own daughter to hate him]].
** Also lets one when he sees that Splinter is a Rat
* EvilOverlord: Of "the foot" at least, it is unknown how large it is though.
* EvilSoundsDeep: His voice is ''very'' deep this time around.
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: The aforementioned CurbStompBattle involves him kicking Raphael into an electrified sign and later dropping pieces of said sign on top of Michelangelo.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A significant portion of his face is covered in burn scars, and his right eye is whited out.
* GreenEyedMonster: His jealousy of Hamato Yoshi for winning Tang Shen's love prompted their feud.
* IfICantHaveYou: To Tang Shen, to the extent that he burned down Splinter's house and killed her in a jealous rage.
** AccidentalMurder: Then again, according to the Turtlepedia it was implied to have been an accident.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a BadBoss and quick to berate his underlings if they fail him, even if he doesn't kill them.
* KnightOfCerebus: The episodes he's in usually make it clear that it's not going to be the same as a one-off adventure, and whenever he's in a fight scene, [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence things get really ugly]]. The fact that he's a much, ''much'' more personal enemy to the Turtles and won't settle for anything but attacking them where it hurts (such as [[spoiler:stealing Hamato Yoshi's child and raising her as his own to get his ultimate revenge on his former friend]]) earns him this status.
** To put another thing in perspective, the point when he finally got up and did something, it brought a darker shift in the show. [[spoiler: His VillainTeamUp with the Kraang also allowed them to nearly succeed in their invasion of Earth.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: A rather morose, quiet theme irregularly shows up during scenes with him, before turning rather menacing, but still quite.
* LighterAndSofter: While he shares a lot in common with his 2003 incarnation, such as his AxCrazy personality, he is far less punishing and cruel, generally letting his minions live without much of a scratch on them. Although Season 2 and certain events, such as his near-complete lack of hesitance in mutating of Baxter Stockman and [[spoiler:Karai learning who her father actually is]] are starting to change this.
* LightningBruiser: Donatello described him like this. So far only Splinter has proven as fast, or as strong as him.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: His [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited attraction to Tang Shen]] was what caused him to go from Hamato Yoshi's friend [[EvilFormerFriend to]] ArchEnemy.
* MythologyGag: When he first shows up in The Gauntlet, Donatello nervously says, "do you think that's The Shredder?" and Raphael replies, "well, it's definitely ''a'' shredder", referencing the various versions of The Shredder appearing in each of The TMNT series and original comics. WordOfGod says that The Shredder earned his title when Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were talking about a villain who used cheese graters as offensive armor. Originally he was going to be called "The Grate-Man" but Pete Laird decided on "The Shredder".
* NoSenseOfHumor: He's very serious, to say the least. This is especially evident in his interactions with [[DeadpanSnarker Karai]].
* ObviouslyEvil: Let's see deep voice, evil scars, dangerous looking costume covered in spikes, calls himself "Shredder"... Definitely a bad guy.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: What he's been for most of the first season so far with the exception of "The Gauntlet" where he takes action against the Turtles after Bradford and Xever fail him one time too many.
* PragmaticVillainy: Despite Baxter Stockman's Mousers losing them a chance at finding the turtle's lair, Shredder spares him because he has use for his talents.
* PutOnABus: During an episode in early season 2, he mentions having to do business in Japan and leaves Karai to fill in for him while he's gone, he didn't return until "The Manhattan Project"
* RedRightHand: His burned face and blind left eye.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Has shown shades of this in 'Alien Agenda'. However, after Karai gives him a working piece of Kraang technology, he changes his tune. He does this ''again'' in "Enemy of my Enemy", prompting Karai (who also lampshades his problem) to seek an alliance with the turtles. Splinter calls him out on this in the Season 1 finale, claiming if he dies, [[AndThenWhat Shredder will have nothing]].
** A major part of his character is he is so consumed by his thirst for revenge nothing else ''matters'' to him at all. [[spoiler:Not even Karai.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: Still going with some of his older character designs.
* ShutUpKirk: Shredder's response to Splinter is that [[spoiler: after he kills him, he'll still have his daughter as a living symbol of his revenge for all her life.]]
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has plenty, going with his nickname "The Shredder".
* TookALevelInKindness: Sort of. While Shredder is still very much the BigBad and the Turtles' ArchEnemy, he's still ''way'' better here than the AxCrazy genocidal sociopath he was in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003''.
** [[spoiler: He's still an asshole though, seen in the Season 1 finale though, where it turns out that he took Hamato Yoshi's daughter and raised her to hate her biological father simply to hurt Yoshi.]]
* TwoFaced: [[spoiler: The fire that killed Tang Shen has burned roughly half of Shredder's face, as shown when Splinter knocks his helmet off]].
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler: It appears that he and the Kraang will be doing this against the Turtles now that they've realized how much of a problem they are to both. He does so by helping to capture April and handing her over to the Kraang.]]
* VocalEvolution: His voice is a little higher pitched in "Enemy of My Enemy", sounding slightly more like his 1987 counterpart. It's still plenty deep though. "Karai's Vendetta" also adds a slight echo to his voice.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Splinter before their fight over Tang Shen.
* YankTheDogsChain: [[spoiler: He knew Splinter would come to his tower to rescue April, but he had already handed her to the Kraang by the time he got there what Splinter thought was April was a hologram. He probably did that just to mess with him.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: Consistently averted, surprisingly. In contrast to his 2003 counterpart, this version of Shredder has yet to mutilate any of his lieutenants despite the fact that they have all failed him multiple times.

A famous martial artist and one of the Shredder's lieutenants. Becomes a mutant dog [[spoiler:and eventually the 2012 version of Rahzar in season 2.]]

* ArchEnemy: To Michelangelo, due to the events of "New Friend, Old Enemy".
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He has shades of it, especially as Dogpound.
* BadassNormal: Pre-Dogpound, he was able to hold his own against the Turtles, usually being able to fight two at once.
** BadassAbnormal: As Dogpound, he initially could take on all four them with so much as scratch on him, with typically trying from him rather than fight him.
* BadBoss: Consider who he works for, and this is a given; He is at one point seen kicking one of his own men while they're down when he's annoyed, and regularly belittles Baxter Stockman, sometimes alongside Xever. [[spoiler:[[TheDogBitesBack The latter didn't work out for him.]]]]
* BalefulPolymorph: He hates his mutation into Dog Pound. Subverted when [[spoiler: he mutates into Rahzar]].
* BarehandedBladeBlock: He can do this with just his ''fingers''.
* BeardOfEvil: As a human, though Dogpound still has his mustache.
* TheBrute: Big, bad, and brutish. He's far from DumbMuscle though.
* CoDragons: With Xever to Shredder, at least until Karai enters the scene. And notably this is after Bradford and Xever have fallen out of favor with Shredder.
* CoolHelmet: He has a Shredder-esque helmet, but he rarely wore it as human.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DemBones: [[spoiler: His transformation into Rahzar]]
* DemotedToDragon: In the second season, Karai becomes the new second-in-command and is left in charge, lowering his status to become TheBrute with Fishface.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: As Dogpound [[spoiler: and Rahzar.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His BadBoss tendencies and rivalry with Xever are demonstrated within his introduction.
* EvilCounterpart: To Michelangelo.
* EvilSoundsDeep: As Dogpound and [[spoiler: Rahzar]].
* EvilVirtues: Bradford has a few of these traits, like his loyalty to the Shredder, his sense of honor in regards to his loses, and his valor in not giving up.
* FalseFriend: When Michelangelo attempts to befriend him, he goes with it and uses the connection to attempt to learn more about the turtles.
* FemmeFatalons: [[spoiler: His nails merge with his fingers to create natural claws as Rahzar.]]
* {{Foil}}: Prefers a more pragmatic approach and is rather famous, while his partner is a street rat who likes to take a much more violent and sadistic approach. His attacks are also much more brute force-based.
* GeniusBruiser: Can be quite the ManipulativeBastard when he needs to be. Best shown when he manipulated Mikey.
* GutturalGrowler: As Dogpound, but [[spoiler: as Rahzar, he's taken on a far more growling and gravelly tone of voice compared to his previous two forms.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Wants to turn back into a human in ''Mikey Gets Shell Acne'', but changes his mind [[spoiler: upon his second mutation into Rahzar.]]
** [[spoiler: In ''The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman'' when he hears of the retromutagen, he wants it to be normal again, like Baxter. He seems to flip-flop, he likes being Rahzar better than Dogpound, but wouldn't mind being human again.]]
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Does this to a defeated Foot Ninja.
* LeanAndMean: [[spoiler: His Rahzar transformation causes him to become much skinnier]].
* LightningBruiser: He was fairly quick as a human, but lost this aspect when he became Dogpound, becoming more of a MightyGlacier, a fact he complains about in ''Mikey Gets Shellacne''. [[spoiler:He stops complaining when he mutates into the far more quick and powerful Rahzar]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Poor Mikey.
** Seems to also use his new form to manipulate The Purple Dragons into paying Shredder even more money.
** Not really manipulating, more like threatening to tear them apart if they don't give him what he wants. And are you going to argue with a giant muscled dog man?
* MightyGlacier: As Dogpound. His greater size makes him MUCH stronger, and he often NoSell attacks as opposed to dodging them, but it also too slow to dodge and his fights tended to have him mostly standing still. By the second season he's grown to detest this.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[spoiler: Ninja werewolf zombie mutant as Rahzar.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Not only does his attempted TakingYouWithMe in "The Gauntlet" disarm the Mutagen Bomb, it covers him and Xever in Mutagen, mutating them into a dog man and a fish man. It gets zigzagged though, since his mutant dog form has much more physical strength, along with increased sense of sound and smell at the cost of losing some of his speed and most of his stealth as a human ninja.
** That said, the sight of him and Xever getting mutated did distract the Shredder long enough for the turtles to get away from the Shredder as he about to kill them
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His look is based on ChuckNorris.
** He also shares his name with a martial artist who wrote the ''Young Samurai'' books.
* OutOfFocus: In the second season, even after his [[spoiler: secondary mutation into Rahzar,]] he doesn't play much of a role in the story in his appearances.
* PragmaticVillainy: While he does want to kill Michelangelo in "New Friend, Old Enemy", he says that he can't because Michelangelo is bait and will lead them right to the Turtles' lair.
* PunnyName: Mikey names him "Dogpound" as the first battle after his mutation has the Turtles "pounded by a dog" [[spoiler:and Rahzar as a "razor-faced dog"]].
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His original costume invoked it. Now his pants and eyes do.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Dogpound.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Xever's blue.
* TheRival: To Xever
* SaltAndPepper: The salt to Xever's pepper.
* SleevesAreForWimps: As Bradford.
* TheRightHandOfDoom: Dogpound's left arm is grossly oversized. His right hand, meanwhile, seems to be completely covered in bone.
* TakingYouWithMe: Says this word-for-word to the Turtles before breaking open the Kraang's mutagen bomb. All it does is end up mutating both himself and Xever.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Subverted with Xever, as they hate each other.
** He seems to have taken a liking to Tiger Claw, come "Wrath of the Kuro Kabuto", where when they get the time to talk to each other, they discuss their reluctance to talk to each other before then due to animal traits, compliment each other's sense of smell, and agree that they ''both'' want to eat Xever, Tiger Claw due to general temptations, and Bradford "just to get him to shut up."
* TookALevelInBadass: After being mutated, he gains invulnerability to the point where Leo slashes him with his katanas, and he [[BarehandedBladeBlock catches them]], and strength enough to pick up a car. Not that this stops the turtles from defeating him.
** Takes another when [[spoiler:he falls into a vat of mutagen, mutating again.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He's a martial arts superstar with a chain of dojos across the country, but he's secretly Shredder's star pupil.
* VillainousFriendship: Type 3 with the Shredder, he's loyal and devoted to him, but the Shredder cares not for Bradford.
** Seems to be developing this with Tiger Claw, showing respect for their skills and a mutual dislike of Fishface.
* WasOnceAMan: After becoming Dogpound.

!! Xever/Fishface
->Voiced by Christian Lanz.
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Xever_918.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Xever-] ]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fishface_4708.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Fishface-] ]]
A street punk who shares his knowledge of the New York underworld with The Foot. He used to just be a thief, but one day got caught stealing a BriefcaseFullOfMoney, that happened to belong to the Shredder, and luckily for him, the Shredder was impressed enough with skills to take him as a subordinate. Becomes a mutant fish.

* AfroAsskicker: While he was human.
* ArchEnemy: Seems to be Raphael's, since when the Turtles and the Foot clash, they usually fight each other.
* ArtificialLimbs: The reason why Baxter was taken by the Foot is because the Shredder needs him to give Fishface both artificial legs and what appears to be a scuba tank that pumps water into Xever's gills.
* AttackTheTail: Splinter beats him in [[spoiler: "Showdown"]] by tricking him into biting his own tail.
* AxCrazy: The most obvious case out of Shredder's henchmen.
* BadassBiker: He drives a fearsome-looking chopper in "Pulverizer Returns!"
* BadassNormal: Pre Fishface he was still able to hold his own against the turtles.
** BadassAbnormal: As Fishface, once he got his robotic legs, he started to fight all four them, and win.
* BadBoss: One of the few things he shares in common with his partner is his disregard for his henchmen and Baxter. [[spoiler:As with Bradford, [[TheDogBitesBack he never anticipated the possibility that Baxter would go for revenge]].]]
* BilingualBonus: He calls someone "Idiota" at one point.
* BlessedWithSuck: As a fish he needs water to breath, and he has no legs.
* ButterflyKnife: He shows off with one in his first appearance.
* CardCarryingVillain: He makes no attempts to hide how little he cares for others or how dangerous he is.
* TheCasanova: Implied by his yearnings for a lover in season two.
* CoDragons: With Chris to [[BigBad the Shredder]], at least until Karai enters the picture. Notably this is also after Xever and Bradford have fallen out of favor with the Shredder.
* CursedWithAwesome: He can inject venom into his opponents by biting them.
* DanceBattler: And surprisingly, it sticks after he gets new legs in his mutated form.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DualWielding: Sometimes with switchblades.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: As Fishface.
* EvilCounterpart: Possesses a preference for violence as well as a somewhat bad temper, much like Raphael, the character he usually tends to fight, and thus could be considered the logical extension of his personality if he were raised by someone like the Shredder. These similarities are [[NotSoDifferent called upon]] in "Baxter's Gambit", where a discussion as they're [[EnemyMine working together]] leads the two to conclude that they are "of a kind".
* {{Expy}}: Of Hun from the [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 cartoon]] both having connections to street gangs specifically the Purple Dragons. The only difference is Hun is the leader of the Purple Dragons while Xever is merely an associate. There's also the fact that Xever and Hun were both mutated into animals. The animal mutation would also make Xever and Bradford expies of Bebop and Rocksteady.
* ExtremityExtremist: He attacks mostly with his legs.
* FishPeople: After getting doused in Mutagen.
* {{Foil}}: Prefers violent behavior and he's just a street rat, rather than his partner, the famous and pragmatic Chris Bradford. His fighting style is also much more fast-paced and quick.
* FreudianExcuse: Downplayed. In "Baxter's Gambit", he talks about his life as a street rat and how he had to become a thief in order to survive in the world, but he himself makes it abundantly clear that he ''likes'' to do terrible things.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mikey explicitly calls him a jerk when he's in the process of [[KickTheDog kicking the dog]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Downplayed, with his robotic legs and breathing apparatus, Xever is comfortable with his mutation, at least moreso than Bradford is, but when he thinks Stockman can change them back, he jumps on the chance.
* KnifeNut: His Butterfly knives are his WeaponOfChoice before his transformation.
* KnightOfCerebus: A minor one, he doesn't drain all of the comedy from a scene but his sociopathic tendencies are ''not'' PlayedForLaughs and he makes the Turtles question their sense of ethics in a case of HeWhoFightsMonsters in the first episode where he takes center stage.
* LackOfEmpathy: And it provides a major ethical dilemma for the Turtles.
* NameFaceName: Fishface.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Sounds like "sever", and he uses knives.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His look is based on JimKelly.
* NotSoDifferent: See the "Evil Counterpart" entry above. He and Raph admit they're this in "Baxter's Gambit".
* ObviouslyEvil: He doesn't hide his nature from anyone and has no problems telling people about how he sent to prison, before Shredder broke him out.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Says it to Raphael [[spoiler: when he saves Raph from one of Stockman's traps.]]
* OutOfFocus: Was sidelined for several episodes after becoming Fishface, not doing much of anything until being upgraded. Shredder even mentioned that he was barely worth keeping around. This also hits him in the second season as he's only made two appearances by the middle of the season, not really contributing much to the plot.
* PsychoForHire: He says so to Raph:
-->'''Raphael''': "So, you do all this because you owe Shredder?"\\
'''Xever''': "Eh, mostly I like having a job where I get to crack skulls every day."\\
'''Raphael''': "[[NotSoDifferent Okay, I can relate to that]]."
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Bradford's red.
* TheRival: To Bradford
* SaltAndPepper: The pepper to Bradford's salt.
* ScaryBlackMan: Though not as dark as other examples, so he may be Black Hispanic or Brazilian instead.
* SlasherSmile: He often has one of these as a human, though since he is unhappy with his transformation Fishface doesn't smile as much.
* TheSociopath: Has no regard for any form of life whatsoever, is completely morally [[TheUnfettered unfettered]], and displays many other sociopathic traits. "Baxter's Gambit" however does show a slightly softer side of him in his interaction with Raphael.
* TheUnfettered: Described as such by Raph.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Subverted with Bradford, as they hate each other.
* TookALevelInBadass: Once Baxter finishes his new legs and breathing tool, he quickly shows in "The Pulverizer" that his new legs are even ''more'' versatile than his original ones, and on top of that, he has venomous teeth.
* VillainDecay: He's mostly relegated to a comedic role in Season 2, where he's slapped around by the Shredder to make a point, demonstrates more submissive behavior in regards to Tiger Claw (though this may be a skill difference and instincts taking prominence), that jar with his general control of the situations he was in in Season 1.
* VillainousFriendship: A Downplayed Type 4 with the Shredder. Like Bradford, the Shredder doesn't really care for him, but finds him useful enough to spring from jail and even commissions robot legs for him to stay in the fight. Unlike Bradford, Xever isn't necessarily loyal to the Shredder, mostly just in it for the thrills.
* WasOnceAMan: After turning into Fishface.

!! Baxter Stockman
->Voiced by Creator/PhilLaMarr
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_004_326.png]]
A scientist who decided to take revenge on all those who ever mocked him, going power mad in the process. After two solo outings, he was forcibly recruited by the Shredder.

* AccidentalMisnaming: People [[RunningGag will frequently]] get his name wrong every appearance after "I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman". Even ''he'' got his own name wrong at one point.
* AfroAsskicker: When in the more dangerous version of his PoweredArmor.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: His head was left exposed after the Stockman-Pod upgraded into a HumongousMecha.
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:In "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he only wishes to become human again, either via Donatello's Retro Mutagen, or more horrific means such as dipping a human in Mutagen and then going in himself, the results of which probably wouldn't even work.]]
* BigCreepyCrawlies: As Baxter The Fly
* BlackAndNerdy: He is black and is a nerdy scientist.
* BodyHorror: as Baxter the Fly
* ButtMonkey: Got this a lot back when he worked at TCRI, and it doesn't get better when he meets the turtles.
* CallBack: He uses Mousers like his other counterparts and [[spoiler:will become a mutant like his 1987 counterpart.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: Doesn't seem to deny that he's this trope, when Michelangelo asks why he's a villain.
* CompositeCharacter: Appears to be loosely based on the comics version in ethnicity, but his design borrows aspects of the version seen in the 1987 show (hairstyle, physique). [[spoiler: As of "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he has become a mutant fly, another trait of his 1987 incarnation.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:After being picked on for almost every episode by the Turtles and threatened by his higher-ups, he decides to take payback in "Baxter's Gambit".]]
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: To the point that everyone could see it coming from a mile away.
* EvilCounterpart: He loves technology, [[NotSoHarmless can be quite dangerous]] even though he's [[ButtMonkey mocked and sometimes even underestimated by his coworkers]], likes wearing purple and is kind of a dork, much like Donatello.
* EvilGenius: His role when working for the Shredder or when trying to use it to be a solo villain.
* EvilIsHammy: Nowhere near as much as his 2003 counterpart, but he still has his moments.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Played with. While he's a bad guy who wears glasses, he lacks the cold-blooded sociopathic nature that generally comes with this trope.
* LaughablyEvil: His dorky demeanor and tendency to get angry over the Turtles insulting him made him quite entertaining. [[spoiler: He loses this trait after he becomes a fly mutant, however.]]
* MadScientist: Both in the sense of being angry at the world and not being very sane.
* NerdGlasses: Going with his nerdy portrayal in the series.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain[=/=]IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He treads the line between these two, the latter to the extent that Mikey actually suggests that they get him some ice cream rather than kick his butt.
* PoweredArmor: He had one in his first appearance. It was initially kind of crappy, but was upgraded by the T-Pod.
* RobotMaster: He uses machines to win his fights often, ranging from his powered suit to the mousers.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:After his mutation into a fly in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he's become far less trusting and crazy thanks to it.]]
* SlasherSmile: When he uses the T-pod to upgrade his armor, he tries this, but it turns out too pleasant and goofy. He improves it in "Baxter's Gambit."
* StrawLoser: As part of being a villainous nerd, his pathetic nature almost makes him pitiable despite his clearly evil intentions.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: After [[spoiler:mutating into a fly]], he has started to constantly eat candy bars.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Once he mutates into a fly, he dismantles a Foot Bot and subdues Rahzaar long enough to escape temporarily. He also proves to a more difficult opponent for the turtles without any technological aid]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: "Baxter's Gambit" has him talk about his backstory, and he states that he used to be a nice kid. [[UnreliableNarrator It's not easy to guess if he's telling the truth or not.]]
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: Gets turned into a fly mutant in ''The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman'']]
* WhosLaughingNow: His motivation, though he hasn't been very good at his revenge schemes so far.

!! Oroku Karai[[spoiler:/Hamato Miwa]]
-> Voiced by KellyHu
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Karai_3089.png]]

The Shredder's [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter]] who takes over as TheDragon after Bradford and Xever fall out of favor with Shredder. [[DatingCatwoman Leonardo develops feelings for her]] [[HeelFaceTurn and desires to see her become good.]]
* AbusiveParents: Implied. She gets scared after making the Shredder angry with a comment, and he outright threatens to hurt her if she doesn't follow his orders.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played with. While she still displays some shades of AmbiguouslyEvil and isn't as bad as her 2003 counterpart after JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, she doesn't really share the NobleDemon shades of her comic counterpart or her 2003 counterpart pre JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, and is much more mischievous than both.
* AffablyEvil[=/=]FauxAffablyEvil: Friendly and sociable to the turtles but still very much a bad girl. [[spoiler: Following their betraying her trust, she develops a full-blown hatred of them.]] In "Karai's Vendetta," her normally sociable and easygoing personality here only serve to highlight the sadistic pleasure she takes in hunting April.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: [[spoiler: Especially in "Karai's Vendetta"]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Subverted in "Alien Agenda", where the "ambiguous" part disappears. Played straight again in "Enemy of my Enemy" though, and the end of "Karai's Vendetta".
* AntagonisticOffspring: [[spoiler: Shredder revealed to Splinter that after their fight, Shredder took Miwa away and changed her name to Karai. However, Shredder told her a different story, reversing his and Splinter's positions, so Karai doesn't realize she's this.]]
* AntiVillain: Subverted, [[spoiler: then later played straight: something of a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds example (she's only evil due to circumstances she couldn't control when she was a baby) with shades of NobleDemon (Though as noted below, she's kinda erratic on that.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Leonardo as of "Enemy Of My Enemy" and April as of "Karai's Vendetta".
* BadassBiker: In her street clothes and due to having a motorcycle that she drives in "Enemy of my Enemy" and "Karai's Vendetta".
* BadassNormal: She has no special powers beyond her training and no transformations or robotics to enhance her in any way.
* TheBaroness: Sexpot variety.
* BigRedButton: Apparently cannot resist the urge to press them, as seen in "Alien Agenda".
* BoyishShortHair[=/=]DelinquentHair: Well she very tomboyish and her short two tone hair goes well with her bad reputation, which she is very proud of.
* CardCarryingVillain
-->'''Raph''': She's ''bad news''!
-->'''Leo''': No, she's not!
-->'''Karai''': Yeah, I am.
* {{Chickification}}: At the end of her HeelFaceTurn episode she's kidnapped by TheDragon and imprisoned by the BigBad, promptly becoming a DamselInDistress.
* CleopatraNose: Of the most prominent of the human cast, and she is still seen as rather good looking.
* CoolBike: Uses one in both "Enemy of my Enemy" and "Karai's Vendetta"
* CoolHelmet: A Motorcycle helmet for the aforementioned CoolBike.
* TheCorrupter: Tries to be this to Leo. He in turn, [[HighHeelFaceTurn tries to get her to become good.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Her fight with April is her giving one of these to her...[[spoiler: until April gets her to let her guard down by mentioning her MissingMom.]]
* DaddysLittleVillain: Shredder is her father. [[spoiler: Except not really.]]
* DarkActionGirl: She's been able to hold her own against any of the turtles, and has no trouble at all with the Kraang-droids.
* DarkIsEvil: She primarily wears dark colors and makes no secret about how dangerous she is to the turtles.
* DatingCatwoman: In only one episode, she and Leo connected pretty well. Subverted later in "Alien Agenda" when she betrays Leo and he gives up on her. Shades of this pop up again in "Enemy of my Enemy"...[[spoiler: only to end up coming apart at the seams again.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Compared to her previous incarnations, this version of Karai is much more snarky and less serious, willing to snark even in front of her father.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Starting with season 2.
* EnemyMine: Briefly with the Turtles against the Kraang, but then subverted [[KickTheDog when she takes a broken droid and abandons the Turtles to fight the mutant monster she created.]]
** She does this again in the aptly-titled "Enemy of my Enemy", where she actively seeks out the alliance after learning of the danger of the Kraang. [[spoiler: Once again, it doesn't last, but this time, it's the turtles' fault rather than her own.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Her father, Shredder. [[spoiler: And despite never having met her, her mother.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When the turtles betray her trust in "Enemy of My Enemy," she is unsurprisingly disgusted with them for doing so, though she has [[{{Hypocrite}} little room to talk]].
* EvilCounterpart: To Leonardo, both are the best students of their masters.
* EvilVersusEvil: Briefly against the Kraang.
* FacialMarkings: Are they makeup or tattoos? Who knows.
* ForTheEvulz:
-->'''Leo''': Karai, [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre you don't have to do this.]]\\
'''Karai''': I know. That's what makes it ''fun''!
* FriendlyEnemy: To the turtles, at least on her end. [[spoiler: The "friendly" part was cut for a while, though she seems to be rekindling with them after discover that they're practically her brothers.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Signs of it towards April in "Karai's Vendetta" when she angrily demands to know what makes April so special as she's [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown pounding her into the dirt]].
* [[spoiler: HighHeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler: The only female villain on the Foot and she finally sides with the Turtles for real after learning that Splinter was her true father all along.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Feigned believing that Splinter was her true father to get the turtles to bring her back to their lair. It actually hit when she saw Splinter had a copy of the full picture of Tang Shen and Yoshi, of which she had only ever had the Tang Shen half.]]
* HellbentForLeather: Her street clothes.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: [[spoiler: Her actions and expressions during the coda of "The Alien Agenda" indicate she has reasons all her own to make sure the Foot Clan get advanced technology.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Her explanation for not killing Leo, and probably anything else she does. [[spoiler: Shredder's private conversation with his daughter implies he believes that might not be the ''only'' reason, though.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: She's not in the best position to criticize the Turtles for betraying her when she had earlier done the exact same thing and showed absolutely no remorse doing so. That said though, it's equally telling that the Turtles gave ''her'' grief for betraying them yet later betrayed her in turn.]]
** In season one, she remarked that Shredder was "obsessed with revenge". In season two, she becomes bent on taking revenge against Splinter, even disobeying Shredder's orders to do so.
** She stops Shredder from killing a weakened Splinter by claiming it would be dishonorable, except she was the one who fired the tranquilizer dart at him in the first place while he was fighting off Tiger Claw.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Seems this way at the end of "Alien Agenda". Later appearances subvert this and show that she really does have good qualities and that it's just (literally) difficult for her to express them due to her LackOfEmpathy.
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: While it is true that the Shredder is the turtles' enemy, in choosing to try and take him out they show that this is more important than their alliance with Karai, which was the source of Karai's disappointment. She thought the turtles, in particular Leo, was better than that and was willing to work with her against a common enemy and is right to say that Leo was the one who betrayed her this time, not the other way around.]]
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope[=/=]TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:Starting in "Karai's Vendetta", where following her coming to hate the Turtles fully goes from an AffablyEvil FriendlyEnemy to a sadistic and FauxAffablyEvil seeker of vengeance. It only got worse when Splinter became involved....]]
* KickTheDog: She abandons the turtles to fight an EldritchAbomination she created, which causes Leo to give up on her...until the next time they met, anyway.
** [[spoiler: While her rage against Splinter is understandable and even pitable since it's a huge lie Shredder has fed her all her life, she certainly doesn't come off too well trying to kill the Turtles or April just to personally hurt him.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: As stated above, she abandons the Turtles even though the EldritchAbomination attacking them was her own fault, and when Leo points out that he trusted her, she mocks him. Then again, she was raised by a full-fledged sociopath, so it isn't very surprising.
* LaserGuidedTykeBomb: [[spoiler:Shredder's more or less made her his pawn in his revenge against Splinter.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler: A variation. While Karai was always a villain, her hurt at Leonardo's betraying her trust in him prompts her to go from a FriendlyEnemy with a DatingCatwoman type relationship with Leo to a hateful ArchEnemy]]
* MakeUpIsEvil: She has red lipstick and heavy eyeshadow.
* MasterSwordsman: She appears to be as good as Leo, if not better.
* MeaningfulName: Karai means "Weapon". [[spoiler: Which is more or less what Shredder is using her as; a means to hurt Splinter, as she's actually his daughter.]]
* MissingMom: Mentioned in "Karai's Vendetta", [[spoiler: which is later revealed to be Tang Shen. Turns out she was told by Shredder that Splinter killed her, when it was in fact the other way around.]]
* MoralMyopia: She called the turtles out for betraying her even though she betrayed them first.
* MulticoloredHair: Her hair in the front is black/dark brown while the roots in the back are blonde. [[spoiler: Although flashback stills as a baby showed her with much lighter hair than her parents.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Says this after alerting Tiger Claw to the location of the lair. (Without the "My God" part.) When she realizes that Hamato Yoshi is indeed her real father]].
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: She accidentally creates [[EldritchAbomination Justin]]. Leo even points out it's her fault, [[LackOfEmpathy but she doesn't care.]]
* NobleDemon: Zigzags on this like all hell. She may occasionally show signs of honor and compassion, but this is interspersed with trying to kill the guys [[SinsOfTheFather for Splinter's (alleged) crimes]] and [[StuffedInTheFridge April just to hurt the guys]].
* NotSoDifferent: She and Leo get into this, as do she and April.
* OnlySaneMan: Unlike the Shredder, she understands thwarting the Krang's alien invasion of Earth should probably take priority over revenge on the turtles.
** Also counts as PragmaticVillainy.
* PetTheDog: Is actually willing to help with no strings attached in "Enemy Of My Enemy", and shares a moment of empathy with April in "Karai's Vendetta" that allows April to escape her.
* PluckyGirl[=/=]SpiritedYoungLady: Villainous example of both.
* PragmaticVillainy: In "Alien Agenda" in contrast to [[RevengeBeforeReason Shredder]].
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Her reflection appears in Shredder's mask in the new season 2 opening.
* PsychoticSmirk: She makes one at the end of "Alien Agenda".
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Save for a part of the former that's [[BlondesAreEvil dyed blonde]]
* RealNameAsAnAlias: She goes undercover using the name Harmony. However, "Karai" does not mean "harmony." [[spoiler:"Miwa"]], however, does.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: Against the Turtles as of "The Enemy of My Enemy"]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Karai''': Our deal's off! You want a feud? [[ArchEnemy You've got one!]]]]
* RousseauWasRight: Cruelly subverted. Her abandoning the turtles to a monster she created causes Leo to give up on her.
** Double subverted in "Enemy of my Enemy" where she actively seeks out an alliance with the Turtles, reigniting Leo's hope that there's goodness in her.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids
-->'''Leo''': I trusted you!
-->'''Karai''': [[LackOfEmpathy I know!]] [[LampshadedTrope That's messed up, right?]]
** [[spoiler: This gets turned on its head later:]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Karai''': I thought you were my [[FriendlyEnemy friend!]] [[DramaticIrony How could you betray me!?]]]]
* SpikesOfVillainy: Downplayed. There's a few small ones one her armor. Her street clothes feature a jacket that has a ton of these.
* StealthHiBye: To Leonardo in "New Girl In Town"
* TomboyishSidetails: So far she is definitely the most tomboyish girl in the show.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: [[TragicVillain Her entire LIFE]].]]
* WomanInBlack: Most of the time.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Leo tried to make her realize this early on, but so far, he [[IgnoredEpiphany hasn't gotten through]].
* YouKilledMyFather: She believes that Splinter killed her mother. [[spoiler: Except it's all a lie, and Splinter is her biological father.]]
* YoungerAndHipper: Like April, she's been aged down to 16 years old.

-->Voiced by Creator/EricBauza

The most feared assassin in all of Asia, the Shredder has recently hired him to help him in his fight against the Hamato Clan.

* BountyHunter
* Determinator: Manages to cut his way out of the Kraathatrogon, defeats the 80's Turtles, and jumps through dimensions, defeating every enemy in his way, including a whole army of Kraang, all to return and have his revenge.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He makes his respect for the Shredder and disdain for the Foot Clan apparent very quickly, and when Karai is about to attack Tiger Claw, he pulls a gun on her without skipping a beat.
* {{Expy}}: Of Boba Fett from StarWars, especially with the ShoutOut of the Boba's defeat by jetpack and Sarlacc.
* EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:His appearance in the toyline shows him with an eyepatch.]]
** Confirmed in his return.
* FreezeRay: One of his weapons that he employs in combat, presumably to assist in capturing opponents alive.
* JerkAss: He doesn't seem to particularly care about Shredder's clan, and makes that thought known when Karai talks badly of him.
* {{Jetpack}}: He has one that allows him to obtain an aerial advantage.
%% * PantheraAwesome
* ProfessionalKiller: Described as "Asia's deadliest assassin" at one point.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: He appears in the opening in his first appearance, "The Manhattan Project". [[spoiler:Which makes his supposed death by Kraathatrogon highly suspect.]]
** And returns after an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Has a nice-looking blue scarf.
* SwordAndGun: His primary weapons.
* TookALevelInJerkass: He was villainous but still honorable. Upon his return, his honorable side is no more and he's just now filled with rage and focused solely on revenge.
* VillainousFriendship: Has a mutual sense of respect for Bradford.

!! Fong, Tsoi, and Sid

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sid_7288.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Sid-] ]]
A trio of thugs who make up the Purple Dragons, a street gang roped into working for the Shredder by Xever. Fong and Sid are both voiced by Andrew Kishino, while Tsoi is portrayed by James Sie.

* AbandonedWarehouse: Their headquarters is an empty fortune cookie factory.
* AllThereInTheScript: Only Fong's name has been mentioned on-screen. Tsoi and Sid's names appear in the episode credits.
* BadassCrew[=/=]BadassNormal: Subverted. They're weaker than the Foot Ninjas and are treated as CannonFodder by the turtles. They are in running for the turtles' least threatening adversaries.
* BadassMustache: Tsoi.
* TheBrute: Sid.
* TheCameo: In the season 1 finale
* DartboardOfHate: A picture of an actual turtle, with a red ninja mask scrawled on it.
* DropTheHammer: Tsoi.
* GangBangers: They are the gang "The Purple Dragons".
* GoldfishPoopGang: While they do show up rather often they aren't ever seen as much of a threat.
* {{Jerkass}}: All of them
* KnifeNut: Fong.
* LeanAndMean: Fong is extremely gaunt.
* {{Mooks}}: They are weaker than Foot Ninjas, and thus make better cannon fodder.
* OddlySmallOrganization: We have never seen that many Purple Dragons despite being a prominent street gang.
* OutOfFocus: After Xever got mutated, they started to appear less and less, until eventually making an unvoiced cameo in the season 1 finale. They finally reappeared in the season 2 episode "The Good, The Bad, and the Casey Jones".
* RousseauWasRight: [[spoiler: When it look like Xever, Bradford and the Foot Ninjas have the turtles beat, Fong tosses Leo (who had let him go earlier) his sword, [[TheDogBitesBack though it was possible he did it to get back at Xever for knocking him around]]]].
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: They're introduced trying to extort Murakami, and a later episode reveals they have to pay tribute to the Shredder, presumably for the "priviledge" of operating under his name.
* {{Tattooed Crook}}s: Like most stereotypical gang members.
* TerribleTrio: Subverted. They're a trio of bad guys, but they lack the needed individuality that comes with this trope, all having more or less the same personality.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: They all appear to be Chinese.

!! The Foot Ninjas
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foot-w145-h275_7914.png]]
The openly acknowledged CannonFodder of the Foot Clan.

* AdaptiveAbility: Season 2 introduces us to [[MythologyGag robot Foot Ninja]], who catch on to a person's attack pattern as a fight goes on.
* AdaptationalBadass: The robot Foot Ninja seem to be far more dangerous and powerful here due to their AdaptiveAbility, whereas they were just CannonFodder in the 1987 series.
* BadassArmy[=/=]BadassNormal: Subverted.
* CannonFodder[=/=]{{Mooks}}
* CoolMask: With almost bug-like eyes, like most incarnations of the foot.
* DarkIsEvil: Mostly black, fitting their role as stereotypical ninjas.
* TheFaceless: Since they are never seen unmasked, and the robotic foot wouldn't have a face aside from their "masks" any way.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: And lampshaded by the turtles in "Pulverizer Returns". Justified because it turns out that most of them are not properly trained ninjas but rather just anyone the Foot Clan can find and recruit.
* {{Kiai}}: Robot Foot Ninja constantly shriek in small bursts.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: As mentioned they are malevolent and are never seen without wearing their masks.
* MechaMooks: In Season 2
* {{Ninja}}: Duh.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Their primary color scheme.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The lenses on their masks are red.
* ReplacementMooks: Season 2 replaces the human mooks with robots who are far more powerful than the previous ones.
* TheVoiceless: Aside from the robotic foot's monkey-like shrieks.

!!Chromedome
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chromedome-w145-h275_6523.png]]
An upgraded robotic foot ninja created using Chris Bradford's armor, first sent out to hunt down April. The 2012 version of Chromedome.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Created for Karai to destroy April, but the Kraang put in an override program to capture her instead. It later malfunctions, and starts trying to destroy everyone in sight instead.
* {{Badass}}: It gives the team a hell of a fight.
* EnergyWeapon: [[WhipItGood Whips]], [[FightingWithChucks chucks]], and [[LaserBlade swords]].
* EyeBeams: Uses these to bisect the [[DeadlyDisc manhole covers]] shot at it by the Shellraiser.
* {{Flight}}: Via RocketBoots.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Defeated when Mikey impaled it with its own LaserBlade.
* KingMook: Far more advanced than the Foot Boots, and based on Bradford's old armor instead of the standard Foot uniforms.
* MythologyGag: Named after Chromedome from the 1980s series
* PaletteSwap: It's pretty clearly the human Bradford in his ninja garb, but with some minor alterations in color and proportion.
* RobotMe: Of Bradford, pre mutation.

[[folder: The Kraang]]

->Voiced by Creator/NolanNorth
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_022_2738.png]]

-> ''"The turtles must be eliminated from all places."''

A race of malevolent brain-like creatures from another dimension, they've been abducting and recruiting human scientists to help them modify their mutagen, which they plan on altering the Earth's atmopshere with.
* AliensAreBastards: They want to invade our planet, and remake to their liking, and don't care how many of us they have to torture or kill.
* AlienInvasion: [[spoiler: Which comes to a head in the season 1 finale]]
* AllThereInTheManual: The UK TMNT comics call the Kraang disguises "Normans". There's a quick reference to this in "The Kraang Conspiracy" when a TCRI keycard is shown to have the name "Norman Kraangenhoffer" on it.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil[=/=]AliensAreBastards: Just about every single Kraang shown so far is an enemy of the Turtles.
* AxCrazy: In the "Kraang Conspiracy" they attempt to collect DNA from April with a very large needle to the head April nervously asks if if they could just use a bit of her hair they say it would work but this way is more entertaining.
* BayonetYa: Though rarely used, a good many of their laserguns feature chainsaw-like bayonets not unlike the ones from ''GearsOfWar''.
* BigBadEnsemble: With the Shredder. Although, they have much more prominent role than the Shredder, being more dangerous than him and his Foot Clan and being directly or indirectly responsible for everything that happens in the series, making them ''the'' BigBad for the entire first season and overall main villains in the series.
* CannonFodder: The basic Kraang droids are pathetically easy to beat, and readily fall against not just the Turtles, but also every other character who's ever gone up against them...[[IdiotHero except]] [[FailureHero the Pulverizer]].
* ColdBloodedTorture: To Leatherhead, to the extent that just the mere mention of their name sends him into an UnstoppableRage.
* CompositeCharacter: The Kraang combine the name of Krang from the original cartoon with elements of the 1984 comic/2003 cartoon's Utroms, such as their robotic human disguises.
* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Avoided in the first two episodes, where they do fairly well against the Turtles, though this might be because the Turtles hadn't quite learned how to work together yet. Later episodes play it straight, with several Kraang troopers not being able to cause much damage, but when they bring out Traag or a spaceship designed specifically to kill them, they are much more difficult to overcome.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: They all talk like this.
-->"This place is a place that you are not allowed to be in this place."
** Shredder lampshades this in "Karai's Vendetta"
-->'''Shredder''': Do they all talk like that?
* DittoAliens: All Kraang aside from their much larger ruler look the same.
* BadassInANiceSuit: In their human disguises.
* DullSurprise: Their human disguises are as monotonous as their speech pattern.
* EatenAlive: [[spoiler: The fate of any Kraang that comes across the "Newtralizer"]].
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: The Kraang all fight using laser blasters. Justified because they're aliens from another dimension.
* HiveMind: They appear to be this, as they all act identically and each refers to themselves as "Kraang".
* HughMann: When they are using their robots to appear human, and the UK TMNT comics even call them "Normans".
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Standard for TMNT, they can never hit a damn thing. They do manage to hit Leatherhead and the Spy-Roach, but they prove [[ImmuneToBullets immune]].
* JetPack: Some of them wear them in "The Pulverizer" and "Cockroach Terminator"
* MechaMooks: Courtesy of their exosuits.
* MobileSuitHuman: Since the Kraang don't look human they use these to blend in.
* StarterVillain: Though they differ from other examples in that they are also the BigBad.
* {{Technopath}}: One took over Metalhead, though it was probably only due to it being derived from their technology.
* ThirdPersonPerson:
--> '''Kraang:''' Give to Kraang the power cell that Kraang has come to demand that you give to Kraang!
--> '''Michelangelo:''' It's the Kraang!
* VillainExitStageLeft: They're surprisingly quick on their tendrils when it comes time to jump ship.
* VillainsOutShopping: Two Kraang's have a conversation about a gluten free diet making one of their member thinner.
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler:It appears that they and Shredder will be doing this against the Turtles now that they've realized how much of a problem they are to both. They do so during the last episodes of Season 1. Shredder captures April to lure Splinter into a trap, and then hands her over to them when he succeeds in doing so.]]
* TheVoiceless: Outside of their robo-suits, the Kraang seem to only be able to speak in shrieks and snarls.
* ZergRush: It seldom helps them though.

!! Kraang Prime
-> Voiced by [[Series/{{Roseanne}} Roseanne Barr]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kraang_prime_5687.png]]
-> ''"Like all Kraang, I am Kraang. But you can call me Kraang."''

Leader of the Kraang and mastermind of their invasion force.
* AlienInvasion: Leads a full-fledged Kraang invasion in the season one finale.
* AmbiguousGender: Not only do Kraang not really have defining gender characteristics, it's VoiceOfTheLegion seems to contain both a male AND female voice.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: ''Much'' larger than a standard Kraang. This goes double for its robotic body.
* BiggerBad: Kraang Prime was behind everything that the Kraang did throughout the series, but wasn't directly mentioned or didn't actually appear until the finale.
* CombatTentacles: Its MobileSuitHuman has these.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Kraang Prime speaks without the aid of his exo-suit and does so in a much less redundant way than his minions. He even refers to himself in the singular, specifically naming himself 'Krang'. He does, however, occasionally slip into the redundant habit of his lessers. Unlike them, it isn't humorous.
-->'''Kraang Prime''': The invasion that is known as the invasion of Earth begins...'''now'''.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: It's retinas are vaguely star-shaped.
* HiveQueen: Since the Kraang seem to have a hive mind and she is clearly in charge of them.
* LargeAndInCharge: The largest of all the Kraang so far.
* LargeHam: Prime speaks ''much'' more dramatically than any other Kraang in the series, possibly in part because it speaks directly instead of through a robotic suit.
* MobileSuitHuman: Though much less humanoid than the Kraangdroids.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: More obvious than most Kraang since her mouth is much bigger.
* NeverSayDie: Averted.
-->'''Kraang Prime''': [[PrepareToDie All of you will]] '''[[PrepareToDie die]]''' [[PrepareToDie here!]]
* OneWingedAngel: Appears to be stationary and stuck in a hole in the wall, but after the Turtles foil its initial plans, it rips its way out to reveal its towering robotic body.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SmugSnake: She is very smug and arrogant.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Like most Kraang.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Sounds like at least two different voices saying the same lines.

-> Voiced by [[Creator/ElviraMistressOfTheDark Cassandra Peterson]].
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_Alien_Agenda_032_410.png]]
A research scientist from the World Wide Genome Project who takes a particular interest in April. She's really a Kraang-droid, minus the Kraang.

* ArmCannon: She can shoot missiles out of her ''elbows''.
* BackForTheFinale: Seen reinforcing Kraang Droids guarding TCRI in the season 1 finale.
* HotScientist: Well she is supposed to be a scientist at least.
* ImplacableMan: Like most robots in fiction.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: She throws razor sharp sheets of "paper" from her clipboard.
* NeverMessWithGranny: She appears to be based on a older human than most Kraang-Droids.
* PaperMaster: In one of the few scenes where she was fighting.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid: The Kraang really pulled out all the stops with her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Like most robots in fiction her eyes do end up turning red.
* RobotGirl: And an older robotic woman at that.

!! Traag

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/185px-S01E17_Traag_1249.png]]
A rock titan from Dimension X. [[spoiler: The Kraang summon him in "[[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E17TCRI TCRI]]" as part of their takeover of earth, and he fights the Turtles before being sent back to Dimension X by Leatherhead.]]

* AdaptationalBadass: Traag in the 80s cartoon was little more than a rock soldier with a name. Traag here is 20 ft Tall, spews out lava, and can pull himself together after being blown up.
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler: Leonardo blasts all of his limbs off in the season 1 finale, but he's able to call them back to him.]]
* ArchEnemy: Seems to be this to Leatherhead, given the latter's reaction when he sees him in "TCRI."
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler: The Kraang bring him back for the season one finale.]]
* ConvectionSchmonvection: He's a towering MagmaMan, and yet the Turtles and Leatherhead are able to touch and attack him without getting burned.
* DishingOutDirt: He is a rock titan/golem like creature in addition to his fire abilities
* HealingFactor: He's able to literally pull himself back together is he loses a limb.
* ImplacableMan: Traag is so large and sturdy that the Turtles' attacks merely bounce off of him. [[spoiler: Even dynamite fails to harm him for long]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Possibly in the Season 1 finale when Leonardo destroys TCRI but it's not clear]]
* MagmaMan: TronLines of magma cross over his body and limbs, as well as giving him GlowingEyesOfDoom and a ThroatLight.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: Traag is a ''lot'' bigger in this continuity. WordOfGod states that he's 20 feet tall.
* PlayingWithFire: Traag can spit a stream of lava from his mouth.
* TheSpeechless: He does have some impressive roars, though.

!!The Sea Monster
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sea_monster-w145-h275_4677.png]]

A huge aquatic beast the Kraang brought from Dimension X to guard their underwater base/Kraang-water production facility. The Turtles distract it to enter the base, but have to fight it to escape.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Its head alone is as tall as Donatello, to say nothing of its length and width. The creature's entire body is longer than the Turtle Sub and just as tall back-to-belly, but it's not as thick.
* DistractedByTheSexy: The beast is quite attracted to the Turtle Sub, which saves the Turtles' lives.
* LoveHurts: When Leonardo releases explosive charges to get the creature to release the Turtle Sub, it has a very sad expression as the Sub escapes into the distance.
* MadeOfIron: Shrugs off both the explosion of the Kraang base and the Turtles' explosive charges with nary a scratch.
* TheSpeechless: Being an animal, it never utters a word.
* StockNessMonster: The creature has the same body style as most reports of Nessie, with a humped back and swan-like neck. Its flippers are more paw-like though, with rounded ends and short claws. It also has two tendrils dangling from its lower jaw.
* StockSoundEffect: When holding the Turtle Sub, the creature makes humpback whale and orca calls.

A driver for the Kraang who gets mutated into a mobile weed.
* AlienBlood: After his mutation into a plant based creature, since it has "blood" that is like chlorophyll.
* BodyHorror: Not only is his heart clearly visible in his mutated form, his bones and muscles can be seen on the inner sides of his legs.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The Turtles were the one who accidentally caused him to mutate.
* EnemyMine: Was perfectly happy to join forces with the Turtles so everyone could escape the Kraang prison.
* HealingFactor: Since Snakeweed is part plant.
* LiterallyShatteredLives[=/=]LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: He gets frozen and then shattered to pieces in "New Girl In Town". [[HealingFactor It doesn't last]].]]
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant weed.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:At the end of his first appearance. This happens again in "New Girl In Town".]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:In the comic adaptation.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Snake" is probably not his real name.
* PlantPerson: As Snakeweed.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* StarterVillain: The first mutant the Turtles fight.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Subverted and lampshaded: he mutates into a plant, while Mikey thought he would turn into a snake because of his name.
* WasOnceAMan: After his transformation.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: After his mutation, the Turtles have no qualms against potentially lethally electrocuting him. Of course, given that he works for the Kraang and helped them capture April, they weren't very concerned with his safety to begin with.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-Spider Bytez-] ]]
A middle-aged schlub who attempts to parlay his recording of the turtles into big cash, only to get turned into a spider-like creature by the Kraang's mutagenic ooze.
* {{Acrofatic}}: As Spider Bytez.
* BullyingADragon: As a human, he tried to blackmail the Turtles into giving him money for his picture of them, even though he clearly saw them fighting alien robots without a sweat. Had Splinter not instructed them to try to get the picture back without violence, they would probably have taken it from him easily.
* TheBusCameBack: After an absence spanning almost a year and a half, he made his return in "Metalhead Rewired".
* {{Cephalothorax}}
* EnemyMine: Pleaded for one the entirety of "Metalhead Rewired", before getting his wish when the Turtles and all the mutants work together to escape the Kraang.
* FatBastard: Even when the Turtles tried to save him from the Kraang, he kept acting like a {{Jerkass}} [[TooDumbToLive to the point it allowed the Kraang to notice the Turtles' intrusion]]. You ''really'' don't feel sorry for him when he gets mutated.
* FatIdiot: Continually mistakes the Turtles for frogs, for one thing, despite the very obvious fact that frogs don't have shells. "Metalhead Rewired" reveals he just calls them frogs to make them angry, since when under the control of the Kraang, he calls them "the turtles who I call frogs".
* GiantSpider: As Spider Bytez.
* {{Greed}}: So, so very much.
* HateSink: Not even a shred of likability.
* InstantExpert: He gets the hang of his new form and abilities right off the bat, with no [[HowDoIShotWeb learning curve]] whatsoever. Unlike Snakeweed, who at least expressed mild surprise when one of his severed limbs grew back, he isn't even shocked to discover he can throw up acid and webbing.
* {{Jerkass}}: Big time.
* LargeHam: More so after his transformation.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant spider.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His design is remarkably different from most mutants in the show, having a much less visceral, more cartoonish design.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
** AdvertisedExtra: Qualifies as this, seeing as he's made only two appearances in the series.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: As Spider Bytez.
* SmugSnake: Or spider as it were.
* SuperSpit: He can spit webbing and acidic loogies.
* TrashTalk: Why Raph had to put is "Ignoring Insults" training to good use against him.
* ToiletHumor: In his first appearance, whenever he shot out webs, fart sound effects could often be heard. This trait appears to have been discarded in "Metalhead Rewired", where it's instead replaced with a noise more common to spider characters (specifically, [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan Spider-Man]] or [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Airachnid]] whenever they shoot webbing).
* TooDumbToLive: He called the turtles frogs and continued to mistake them as being such when they obviously weren't. Combine that with the BullyingADragon and FatBastard tropes above and you have this.
* UngratefulBastard: To the point where Donnie blatantly asks the others ''why'' they're trying to rescue him in the first place.
* WasOnceAMan: After his transformation.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: His mutation name "Spider ''Bytez''".

[[caption-width-right:150:[[labelnote:Click here for spoilers]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rat_King_2740.png[[/labelnote]]]]
A scientist involved with the Kraang. He modifies their mutagen, tests it on one of his colleagues, and then uses it to give himself psychic powers. A subsequent lab accident turned him into this continuity's version of the Rat King.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Most incarnations of The Rat King either want to be left alone or just advocate rats, sometimes even working with the Turtles. While this one keeps the rat advocate trait,[[spoiler: he seems to be fond of personally attacking people or works to spite those around him (be it harming Rockwell or enjoying the fact he's going to make Splinter kill his sons).]]
* AnimalMotifs: [[spoiler: As The Rat King, which this incarnation takes a little farther by showing his eyes sunken in, his fingernails having grown much longer, and grotesque teeth.]]
* BandagedFace: [[spoiler: As the Rat-King, thanks to the accident that transformed him disfiguring his face.]]
* TheBeastmaster: [[spoiler: Also as the Rat-King.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: He appears to be a pretty nice guy for most of his first appearance; we only learn at the end of it that not only was he the villain of the episode, [[spoiler:but he also practiced experiments ''on his own partner'' just so he could get psychic powers]].
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: As the Rat King, he is hideously emaciated and corpse-looking, likely having been burned terribly when his laboratory caught fire.]]
* BreakThemByTalking: [[spoiler:Attempts this on Splinter.]]
* CombatClairvoyance: Thanks to the mutagen.
* DarkIsEvil: His new look as [[spoiler:The Rat King]] evokes this to the extreme.
* DiscardAndDraw: [[spoiler:His empathic abilities seemed to be temporary, but manages to get the presumably permanent ability to control rats.]]
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]NotSoDifferent: Tries to paint himself as this to [[spoiler:Splinter, saying that they both have lost their humanity, see through the eyes of rats, and eventually lost everything that they stood for]].
* {{Expy}}: Of Herbert West from the ''Film/ReAnimator'' films, right down to having the [[Creator/JeffreyCombs same actor]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Goes from a scientist to a (temporary) empath to a man who controls all the rats in New York City.]]
* HorseOfADifferentColor: He rides a darker-than average giant Rat named Caligula.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He displays a surprisingly callous attitude toward his own "brethren", saying that not every experiment can be a success when a rat accidentally mutates itself into something that clearly won't be able to sustain itself. He also sends several rats plummeting to their doom in an attempt to just rid himself of Splinter.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Not so much so in his first appearance, but [[spoiler:as the Rat King, he attacks the Turtles very personally (trying to murder April and take control of Splinter), and tries to make Splinter give up his humanity via MindRape. It says something that he's so far the only character besides the Shredder that Splinter has outright tried to kill.]]
* MadScientist[=/=]EvilGenius: Whenever he appears [[spoiler: though more mad than usual after becoming the "Rat King".]]
* MindRape: [[spoiler: Does this to Splinter while trying to take over his mind.]]
* MindControl: [[spoiler:He develops the power to control rats, which leads him to become the Rat King.]]
* MisanthropeSupreme: [[spoiler: As the Rat King, he decides that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and plans to drive them out of New York for good.]]
* PetsHomageName: [[spoiler: The Rat King names all of his rats after famous Greeks and Romans--such as Caligula for his giant rat steed and Aristotle for his seeing eye rat]].
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes become bloodshot after he injects himself with the psychic neuro-chemical. [[spoiler: After his transformation into the "Rat King" the few times you see his eyes show that they have turned into a more BodyHorror like example of these, as seen on the NightmareFuel page.]]
* SaiGuy: He briefly uses one of Raphael's sais in his first appearance.
* ScaryTeeth: [[spoiler: His teeth are noticeably deformed from the explosion and presumably a lack of hygiene.]]
* SeeingThroughAnothersEyes: [[spoiler:He is completely blind as The Rat King, and is forced to see through the eyes of other rats. Splinter exploits this weakness in "Of Rats and Men", where he gets rid of Aristotle, the Rat that's always on the Rat King's shoulders, and then blindfolds himself, rendering the Rat King entirely blind.]]
* SmugSnake: In his first appearance only. He exchanges his ego for [[StrawNihilist nihilism]] and a KnightOfCerebus position during his second appearance making him a far greater threat.
* ThemeNaming: [[spoiler:He seems to have taken to naming his rats after famous Greeks/Romans, his steed being Caligula and his seeing eye rat being Aristotle.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He loses his composure after his plan to mutate the world's populace fails, which goes further down the drain as he loses Aristotle, the one Rat who helped him see in his fight with Splinter, and then Splinter reveals he took his blindfolds, forcing the Rat King to stumble around (in his view) in the dark, which makes him start yelling at Splinter, and eventually just trying to hurt him before falling off a cliff.]]
* VillainExitStageLeft: He's pretty good at getting away quickly after losing.
* WalkingSpoiler: Just look at all these blank spaces.
* WeakButSkilled: He isn't stronger than a human being physically, but his powers are dangerous enough to make up for it. On the other hand, he uses them as a crutch and is easily defeated when he is unable to rely on them.

* AllYourPowersCombined: It has abilities taken from various animals, including an octopus, an electric eel, and a cobra.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In addition to the all of the above, it inherited a cat's meowing.
* BadassAdorable: ''Just look at those eyes''. The cat meow also helps in this respect.
* CombatTentacles: From his octopus DNA.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The thing was created by Karai when she caused all of the Kraang's harvested DNA to fuse into one monster.
* CurbStompBattle: To the turtles and the Kraang before Leo's finally able to take it down.
* FluffyTheTerrible[=/=]OddNameOut: It was given the name "Justin" because Mikey couldn't think of a better or more fitting name to give it.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Just look at him.
* ShockAndAwe: Its ''eyes'' are electrified!
* VillainExitStageLeft: After Leo electrocutes it.

!! Spy-Roach
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spy_Roach_314.png]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spy_Roach_Molted_2129.png]]
A mutant cockroach with a vendetta against Raphael.

* AllThereInTheScript: Apparently, its name in production materials is '''Chong''', even though it's not yet been mentioned in the show.
* BaldOfEvil: By virtue of being a hairless insect.
* BodyHorror: The mechanical stuff on the roach before it mutated was just that: Stuff on the roach. When it mutated, the machinery ''merged into it'', and you can frequently see veins in its buzzsaws and first person view shots. Not to mention that after it molts, it looks like a giant maggot with limbs and robotic wings.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: By virtue of being a roach.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Spy-Roach's hatred of Raphael was born out of Raphael's attempts to kill it when it was a normal roach.
* CurbStompBattle: Fights with it tend to end this way.
* {{Cyborg}}: Its mutation causes the technology Donatello outfitted it with to merge with it.
* {{Determinator}}[=/=]TheUnfettered: This is one determined bug.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[RememberTheNewGuy Scumbug]] from the '87 episode "Night of the Rogues", even if the only similarity is that they're both mutated roaches.
* {{Flight}}: After molting.
* FromASingleCell: [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, he apparently begins to regenerate from his liquified remains.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: From a normal cockroach to a dangerous mutant.
* ImplacableMan: Like most Roaches.
* InstantExpert: It acquires a Kraang raygun and uses it against the Turtles with ease.
* LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: Raphael finally destroys it by directing the Kraang's laser-drill at it, which causes it to [[{{Squick}} explode in a shower of slime.]] This doesn't destroy it for good though.]]
* NighInvulnerability[=/=]NoSell: As Donatello explicitly points out in the episode, cockroaches are a deceptively durable species. Spy-Roach's mutation just took it UpToEleven. In the episode, he shrugs off laser blasts, getting run over by the Shellraiser and Raph's bike, and getting pelted by manhole covers.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: Well Roaches are pretty hard to kill.]]
* OneWingedAngel: After molting, it becomes bigger, stronger, and capable of {{Flight}}
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The spy-camera it wears over one eye has a red lens.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Raphael
* WeaksauceWeakness: Despite Spy-Roach's enhanced toughness brought upon by his mutation, he is still vulnerable to a common spray can of insecticide. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since he's still a roach in the same way the Turtles [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E17TCRI can hold their breath for a significant duration of time]].
* WingedHumanoid: After molting.

!! The Parasitic Wasp
[[quoteright:146:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wasp-w145-h275_1138.png]]
A mutant Wasp that is the result of a Kraang Mutagen experiment GoneHorriblyWrong. It winds up infecting Leonardo with a mind-controlling stinger [[spoiler: who then passes it on to Raphael and Donatello, with all three becoming guards to the wasp's egg]]

* {{Badass}}: It took the Turtles a while to take it down and in fact it only finally lost because [[spoiler: because it used its stinger, which killed it.]]
* BadassCrew: [[spoiler: Likewise, the three offspring are also quite dangerous, managing to damage Donatello's bo staff and disarm Raph and Leo of one of their weapons each. They are only destroyed by Michelangelo using the Shellraiser's cannon]]
* BewareMyStingerTail: Since it is a wasp this is a literal example and the fact that [[spoiler: it renders its victims as mindless slaves to protect its offspring until the offspring can eat them]] doesn't help.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The Wasp does this to Leonardo via its stinger.
* {{Flight}}: Mutant wasp after all.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: From the mother to its babies.]]
** [[spoiler: And in the episode "Metalhead Rewired", the lone parasitic wasp is the only mutant who is unable to escape from the Kraang, and is last seen falling down to the floor from a very high altitude after the portal closes before it can go through.]]
* LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: Much like Spy-Roach, the three Parasitica Wasps are destroyed in such a manner that causes them to explode in a shower of slime. Unlike Spy-Roach though, their deaths seem to be actual]].
* MonochromaticEyes: Like most wasps.
* SelfDisposingVillain: [[spoiler: A variant. The original Wasp kills itself when it uses its stinger, which yanks it's heart out (as is the case when real bees and wasps sting a person)]].
* TrulySingleParent[=/=]MonsterProgenitor: It managed to lay a fertile egg all by itself, [[spoiler: turned the turtles into zombies]], and successfully because a post-mortem [[spoiler: parent of quadruplets.]]
* TheVoiceless: Unlike other mutants (including the turtles themselves), the Parasitica Wasp does not talk, only buzz. [[spoiler: This extends to it's spawn]].

!! The Newtralizer
-> Voiced by Creator/DannyTrejo
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/newtra-w145-h275_5227.png]]
A mutant Newt who hunts Donatello and April's Father.

* AscendedFanfic: Ciro Nieli created the character when he was in elementary school, and now gets to use the character in the show.
* {{Badass}}: Certainly gives off the image of one.
** BadassInDistress: He's among the captives of the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired".
* TheBrute: More so than most brutes in this series since he is solo, doesn't talk at first, is scarily effective and is seen ''eating a Kraang alive''.
* TheCameo: See BadassInDistress.
* CreepySouvenir: He has what seem to be Kraang tentacles hanging from his belt.
* DarkIsEvil: His skin is black save for orange spots on his chest.
* TheDreaded: The Kraang appear to be afraid of him, and for good reason; he ''eats them''. '''ALIVE'''.
* EnemyMine: Pulls one with the Turtles and the other mutants to escape the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired."
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first scene shows him swiftly taking out several Kraang and then eats one of them.
* EvilCounterpart: Manages to be this to Slash, Raphael's own EvilCounterpart. "Newtralized!" establishes that they both share an immense hatred of the Kraang, due to both ending up subject to their cruelty, but the difference is that Slash abhors killing civilians while Newtralizer is completely willing to go through with that type of thing, and maybe even throw his partner away in the process. [[spoiler:So much so, this leads Slash to team up with the Turtles and it ends with them on better terms.]]
** He's one to Leatherhead as well. Both are animals mutated by the Kraang and desire revenge. However, unlike Leatherhead, Newtralizer doesn't care about Earth or it's inhabitants.
* EvilVsEvil: He fights the Kraang, but it's mostly for revenge and beyond that, he's not very heroic, not caring about any innocent people that may get caught in the crossfire.
* {{Expy}}: Borrows the basic design from many 90s Comic Book characters, though his methods of hunting people down are rather [[{{Film/Predator}} predatory]].
* FashionableAsymmetry: One of his shoulder pads is bigger than the other.
* ICallItVera: The concept art refers to his shoulder-mounted missile launcher as "Brother Love".
* KnightTemplar: Wants to get rid of the Kraang through any means, even if those means result in innocents getting killed. [[spoiler:This is a large part of what ends his team-up with Slash.]]
* PerpetualFrowner: He is a very serious threat in more ways than one.
* ProfessionalKiller: According to the concept art, he's an assassin from Dimension X.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Probably the first Fire-Bellied Newt to appear in a cartoon.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: Nearly derails the Shredder's BatmanGambit by attacking the turtles, since it required them to take Kirby back to their lair.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: One of his shoulder pads is pretty big.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: The spot pattern on his belly and chest resemble a skull.
* TranslatorMicrobes: Uses a device to translate his speech, as English is not his native language.
* VerbalTic: "Rocka rocka rocka".
* WalkingArmory: He seems to have a few different weapons on him.
* WholeCostumeReference: His outfit design is similar to Cable's classic X-Force costume, as well as ThePunisher.
* TheVoiceless: Never gets any actual lines in his debut episode; "Newtralized" changes this.

!! Squirrelanoids
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aaah-w145-h275_5960.jpg]]
A pack of mutant squirrels created when a squirrel found a mutagen container that the turtles dropped from the Kraang ship. They are able to self duplicate and evolve into a more dangerous form.

* BodyHorror: The squirrels' tongues flail around outside of their mouths and they multiply inside a living organism's stomach.
* {{Expy}}: See ShoutOut.
* KillerRabbit: At first glance they look like normal squirrels, but eventually turn into horrific monsters.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From squirrels to mutant squirrels to more dangerous ''Film/{{Alien}}'' expies.
* OrificeInvasion: The Squirrelanoids reproduce by forcing themselves down a living being's throat, splitting into two inside the stomach, then forcing their way back out through the mouth.
* ShoutOut: They look like lower-rated versions of the alien from ''Film/{{Alien}}''.
** This makes them look similar to the Pizza Monsters from the 87 series and Turtles in Time game.

!! Slash
-> Voiced by Corey Feldman.
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slash_766.jpg]]

A new mutant ninja turtle with a vendetta against Raphael's brothers and tries to become his new "partner".
* AntiVillain: Established in "Newtralized!" when he refuses to kill humans in order to defeat the Kraang.
* AxeCrazy: While normally similar to Raph on a good day pressing his BerserkButton reveals the monster underneath.
* {{Badass}}: He effortlessly curbstomps the turtles in rather unfamily friendly manner and in a straight fight he's better than Leo or Raph.
* BattleTrophy: He takes Mikey and Donnie's bandannas after beating them down and wears them as arm bands on his right arm, until Raph takes them back.
* BerserkButton: Being called a monster or being rejected by Raph makes him drop his MaskOfSanity.
* TheBerserker: While he's normally a pragmatic, effiecent, and intelligent fighter pressing his BerserkButton makes him go feral.
* BloodKnight: To an extreme degree, he makes Raph seem soft.
* CarryABigStick: A GIGANTIC mace is his WeaponOfChoice.
* ClassicVillain: Represents Pride, Envy, Wrath, and Lust.
* CombatPragmatist: Totally avoids a direct fight with two Turtles, instead sneaking up on or misdirecting them.
* CurbStompBattle: Delivers one to the turtles and arguably does a better job than '''[[BigBad Shredder]]'''.
* DarkIsEvil: Slash is [[{{Motif}} heavily associated with shadows]] - he mutates in the dark with the only light being the glow from the mutagen, the shadow of his fangs and spikes are often framed in shots, his ability to somehow mimic Leonardo's silhouette despite the DivergentCharacterEvolution below etc.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Like the Turtles, Slash has undergone a design overhaul to make him more unique: He is much, ''much'' larger than any previous incarnation, has spikes protruding from his body instead of wearing protective plating (though the spikes seen in the shell are still prominent), and instead of the katana he usually is seen with, has a large mace. He's also the smartest incarnation of the character to date.
* EnemyMine: He helps fight the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired" so he, the Turtles, and the other imprisoned mutants can escape.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Slash may have a questionable morality, but he still wants to defeat the Kraang and save the human race.
* EvilIsBigger: Slash is the evil version of the turtles and he towers over them.
* EvilCounterpart: His vices match Raphael almost to a tee (jealousy regarding the brothers, takes great pride in his sheer ferocity, and has a fairly bad temper), and a fighting style that is a lot like Raphael's aggressive fighting style. Unlike Raphael, he doesn't put his vices aside for anyone and doesn't even bother to tone down his aggression. [[spoiler:Seems to have grown out of it by "Newtralized!" where he leaves Raphael and his brothers on far warmer terms than they started out.]]
* EvilFormerFriend: Raph initially treats him like a SixthRanger. When Michelangelo meets him he might have done the same until Slash immediately beat him to a pulp right in front of Raph's face. Raph changes his mind about the SixthRanger thing pretty quick. [[MoralityPet Still the two acknowledge and defend each other.]]
* GeniusBruiser: When he wears his MaskOfSanity he outsmarts the turtles as easily as he beats the crap out of them.
* GutturalGrowler: Speaks with a rather deep, graveling voice.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: As ruthless as he is, he won't kill innocents. This and a series of other events has him ally with the turtles against Newtralizer and rethink his position a bit.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: "Metalhead Rewired" and "Newtralized!" show him as captured by the Kraang, and the latter implies a few adventures with Newtralizer in fighting the Kraang.
* InASingleBound: In "Metalhead Rewired", he ''jumps several stories high'' in a Kraang base as he escapes.
* InstantExpert: Having watched the Turtles train or not, the amount of skill he shows at both battle and stealth within just a few hours of mutating is insane.
* KnightOfCerebus: Barring a few taunts, he's not at all funny, and the beatings he gives the turtles show more visible injuries than previous fights in the series.
* LightningBruiser: You'd think with Slash's incredibly large size that he would be at [[MightyGlacier a severe disadvantage regarding his speed.]] You'd be wrong.
** And not only is he very fast and agile, he's just as good at ninja stealth as the other turtles are.
* MaskOfSanity: He appears to be a smart, loyal, hardworking ninja who understands Raphael's position and his problems with his brothers. Too bad his mind is too twisted to understand things like how no matter how frustrating families can be that doesn't mean things would be better if they weren't around, there are more important things in life than being strong, or that caring for others isn't a weakness.
* MightyRoar: His BattleCry is very impressive.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler: He learned ninjutsu by observing Raph (and likely the other turtles) train during his years as a pet. Just like the original Mirage Splinter did from ''his'' master.]]
** He also wears an initialed belt buckle, much like the 80's turtles.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: He delivers what may well be the most brutal beating the turtles have received to date in this show. We got bruises, scratches, swollen eyes, Donnie needing help to walk and a splint on his arm.
** To really drive home how much this trope applies, when one sees the turtles' first fight with Shredder, he beat them pretty badly too, but they were still okay enough to run away when Shredder became momentarily distracted. Slash beat them up so brutally that Donnie and Mikey were too injured for the group to properly flee from him, and the main reason they actually manage to survive their fight with him was because Slash accidentally fell off of that building's roof.
* NonIndicativeName: Normally Slash is portrayed with swords, here his WeaponOfChoice is a spiked mace, a bludgeoning weapon [[spoiler: that actually matches his original name more.]]
* PetTheDog: In "Metalhead Rewired", despite being on bad terms with Raphael, saves his life when he could have just escaped and not bothered with Raph.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery crawl in "The Manhattan Project".
* {{Sadist}}: It's clear that he is far more powerful than the other Turtles, [[JustHitHim but doesn't actually kill them even though he most likely can]]. Given his comment on how long he's wanted to hurt Leonardo, it's possible that he's actually prolonging their deaths as long as he can just because he's ''enjoying'' beating the crap out of Raphael's brothers.
* ShadowArchetype: He's Raph's shadow. Basically he could be considered the personification of all of Raphael's hatred, rage, and love of combat unfettered by his redeeming qualities and love for his brothers.
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has spikes growing out of his arms, shoulders, head, and shell...[[spoiler: maybe he should have kept his old name, it's more fitting]].
* VoiceChangeling: At one point, he mimics Leonardo's voice perfectly to ambush Michelangelo. It hasn't been explained if it's one of Slash's mutant powers or if Slash can naturally do that.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Zig zagged. As a good guy, he has yet to do anything a normal person would consider heroic, but as a villain, he hasn't done anything malicious other than defeating the turtles which he thought was a good thing since Raph gave him the idea that the other turtles were lazy morons. In "Newtralized", he fights the Kraang alongside the [[KnightTemplar Newtralizer]]. [[spoiler:Ultimately, he takes issue with the Newtralizer's callous attitude toward hurting innocents and turns on him.]]
* WolverineClaws: Nasty yellow nails.

!!Pizza Face
->Voiced by Creator/JohnDiMaggio

* AscendedExtra: Pizza Face was originally just an action figure for the '87 series. In-universe, he was featured on various pizza boxes in season 1, before becoming a mutant.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Gets his name from Mikey.
-->'''Michelangelo:''' The jig is up, Pizza Face!
-->'''Pizza Face:''' Pizza Face? I like-a that! 'Cause I have a pizza for a face!
* HiveQueen: His living pizzas follow him loyally.
* ImAHumanitarian: His plan is to turn his hypnotized customers into calzones and eat them.
* InSovietRussiaTropeMocksYou: Mikey describes Pizza Face as "pizza that eats ''you''".
* MookMaker: Can create living pizza servants.
* SanitySlippage: Considering he ate a mysterious substance that fell from the sky assuming it was a gift from the heavens, it's quite likely he was already a little crazy, but after mutating he's become completely insane.
* TooDumbToLive: Ate mutagen that fell from the sky in a strange container thinking it might make a good pizza topping.
* WasOnceAMan: He used to be a human pizza maker named Antonio.


!! Steranko
-> Voiced by FredTatasciore
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/steranko_3149.png]]
A Russian Arms dealer who appears briefly in "Enemy of My Enemy". Makes an EarlyBirdCameo as an arms dealer for the Shredder, but is later shown plotting to steal Shredder's helmet and unaffiliated with the Foot.


* AffablyEvil: At least when interacting [[OldFriend with Shredder anyway]]
* AllThereInTheScript: His name is only shown in the end credits in his debut episode; it is mentioned in "The Legend of the Kuro Kabuto".
* ArmsDealer: His role in "Enemy of my Enemy".
* BlondeGuysAreEvil: Since he is Russian he is a blond.
* DarkIsEvil: He dresses in all black
* HuskyRusskie: He comes from Russia and is a pretty big guy.
* OldFriend: Explicitly says that he and Shredder are this.
** However, he later hires Anton Zeck to [[EvilVsEvil steal Shredder's helmet]].
* PowerFist: He appears to be wearing golden brass knuckles, with a hammer insignia on them. [[spoiler:These same brass knuckles are in Rocksteady's design, albeit [[BodyHorror melted into his flesh]], implying a mutation later down the line.]]
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has two shoulder pads with spikes on them.
* TheUnfought: He gets electrocuted into submission before he can put up any kind of fight.

!!Anton Zeck
-> Voiced by JBSmoove

A master thief who can turn invisible, along with a host of other gadget powered abilities. Works as Steranko's agent.

* BattleBoomerang: He can throw mohawk shaped [[EnergyBall energy bolts]] that can boomerang back to him from [[FightingClown his mohawk.]]
* InvisibilityCloak: When powered up his suit can make him invisible. He can also plug in some type of cord to apply the affect to whatever he's carrying.
* JiveTurkey: Speaks in slang most of the time.
* {{Leitmotif}}: He's got a very jazzy theme whenever he starts to do his work.
* MythologyGag: His mohawk and visor match Bebop's from the 1987 show. [[spoiler:A not-so subtle hint about his upcoming mutation.]]
* PurpleIsPowerful: His suit has purple TronLines when it's powered on. He can also throw purple boomerangs from his mohawk.

* [[Characters/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012HamatoClan
Hamato Clan]]
!! As a whole
* AirplaneArms: The turtles consistently run like this.
* BadassFamily: The turtles and Splinter, undeniably so. As a team of highly trained ninja this should go without saying.
* BadassNormal: Make no mistake, they're powerful turtles... But compared to the other mutants that have actual superpowers, all they have is their martial arts training, incredible teamwork, and iron will.
* BaldOfAwesome: By virtue of being hairless reptiles.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: The turtles get them while BrainwashedAndCrazy
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: All of them except Michelangelo in "Parasitica"
* CompetitiveBalance: Primarily the games based off of them, but alluded to in the show itself
** JackOfAllStats: Leo - Medium in Power, Defense, Speed, and Range
** MightyGlacier: Raph - High Power, Medium Defense, Low Speed, Low Range ([[LongRangeFighter Subverted]] by [[ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks throwing]] [[BoomHeadshot his Sai]])
** StoneWall: Don - Low Power, High Defense, Medium Speed, High Range
** FragileSpeedster: Mike - Medium Power, Low Defense, High Speed, Medium Range
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The Turtles have a rather bad habit of this, though some examples are more prominent than others.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: The Turtles, in each previous series, had more or less the same design, just with different weapons and coloration (whether it be bandanas or their own shade of green on the body). This series goes through a little more effort to diversify them, giving them their own body types, eye colors, and physical quirks.
* GameFace: The turtles switch from cartoony eyes (first used in the '87 cartoon) to all-white eyes (from the old comics and 2003 cartoon) once it's time to throw down... or for RuleOfFunny.
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Let's just say Splinter's lessons aren't exactly gentle.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From turtles to humanoid turtles.
* NamedAfterSomebodyFamous: After iconic Renaissance artists.
* TheTeam[=/=]ColorCodedCharacters
** TheLeader: Leonardo - Blue
** TheLancer[=/=]TheBigGuy: Raphael - Red
** TheSmartGuy: Donatello - Purple
** PluckyComicRelief: Michelangelo - Orange
** TheChick: April - Yellow
** SixthRanger: Casey Jones - Black
** TheMentor and BigGood: Splinter - Magenta
** SixthRangerTraitor: Slash- Black
** TeamPet: Raph's non-mutated turtle Spike - later Michelangelo's mutated cat Ice-Cream Kitty
** SignatureTeamTransport: This series' 'Turtle Van' is called the Shellraiser.
*** They also have interlocking and detachable go karts called Patrol Buggys.
* TeensAreShort: In this continuity the turtles are shorter in general and notably compared their master Splinter who is much taller. At one point when getting Raphael to demonstrate how to escape a grapple, Raph had problems getting Splinter in the same grip he had Mikey in earlier due to size discrepancies.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza, as per usual. Unlike the '87 cartoon, they don't subsist solely on pizza: Mikey was going to make omelets in "The Gauntlet," and "Cockroach Terminator" shows them enjoying ramen.
* TrueCompanions: BadassFamily plus friend.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Leo, Raph, and Don when BrainwashedAndCrazy in "Parasitica"

!! Hamato Leonardo
-> Voiced by Jason Biggs, Dominic Catrambone ([=S2E18=], [=S2E20=], video game)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_015_1284.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Gentlemen, I have a bold and daring plan!"-] ]]
* TheAce: He's TheLeader, TheParagon, and rivaled only by Raphael as the best of the brothers in terms of fighting skill.
* {{Adorkable}} \ DorkKnight: Seriously, when did you ever expect to see a version of Leonardo who's into Sci-Fi television shows and tries to emulate them?
** The face shape, smile, and [[InnocentBlueEyes big blue eyes]] don't hurt either.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Although Raphael is stronger, Leo is also showing signs of raising his skill level as the show goes on. As of Episode 13, he's the only one of the turtles to successfully land a blow on Master Splinter and holds his own going one on one later on.
** In later episodes, he's the one who frequently plays bait for high-level foes to give his brothers time to regroup and strike back together.
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards all his brothers, even though he's never ''officially'' stated to be the oldest.
* ButtMonkey: Yes, even he gets this from time to time, mostly in regards to how [[NoRespectGuy very few people seem to respect him or his leadership skills]].
* TheChainsOfCommanding: Examined most prominently in "New Girl in Town" and again in "Fungus Humungous"
* DatingCatwoman: Leo and Karai connect from their very first fight. Now if only she weren't his master's worst enemy's daughter...
** [[spoiler: Master's daughter, actually.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: He's surprisingly good with the snark in this series, though a big part of this may be the way his VA handles some of his lines.
--> '''Raphael''': We're giving up? ''Again''?
--> '''Leo''': Yes! It's part of my hilarious 'Let's All Live' plan!
--> and:
--> '''Leo''': "Mousers"?
--> '''Baxter Stockman''': Mousers! '''M'''obile '''O'''ffensive '''U'''nderground '''S'''earch '''E'''xcavation and '''R'''etrieval '''S'''entries!
--> '''Leo''': Sounds forced.
** Also, his interaction with Raph after he finds out about Karai:
-->'''Raph''': She tried to kill you!
-->'''Leo''': She didn't kill me, she saved me.
-->'''Raph''': She threw a knife at your head!
-->'''Leo''': No, she threw a knife ''near'' my head.
-->'''Raph''': She's in the Foot Clan!
-->'''Leo''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Nobody's perfect.]]
* {{Determinator}}: Which helps him a lot as the series goes on.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: In the Season 1 finale]]
* DualWielding: He has twin katanas as his WeaponOfChoice.
* EmotionsVsStoicism: Unlike previous incarnations, this version of Leo usually doesn't bother with being stoic.
* TheFace: He acts the most classically heroic of the turtles, including narmish dialogue.
* {{Fanboy}}: He adores the ''{{Franchise/Star Trek}}'' style cartoon ''Space Heroes''. His brothers try to use this to get him to snap out of his {{Brainwashing}} in "Parasitica" but it doesn't work.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: Sees himself as the Responsible to both Mikey and Raph's foolish. And to be fair, he often is.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Melancholic.
* GoodIsNotSoft:
--> '''Leo''': "No more Mister Nice Turtle."
* TheKirk: His leadership style tends to lean toward this--not surprising, since his main source of inspiration is an {{expy}} of Captain Kirk--but he'll occasionally wander into [[TheMcCoy The McCoy]] territory when he's showing mercy at the expense of winning and even [[TheSpock The Spock]] when he's being coldly calculating.
* TheLeader: As per tradition.
* HeroicSpirit: Comes with being both a determinator AND a borderline AscendedFanboy of TV heros, even though his favorite show's protagonist is a bad example of them.
* HonorBeforeReason: At least Raph thinks so anyway.
* InHarmsWay: Leo is an adrenaline junkie, though not to the extent of being a BloodKnight. [[SpiritedCompetitor He's overjoyed at having to fight actual ninjas]] (instead of old robots), his idea of a good time is a duel on top of a building, and the kinds of girls who catch his attention are the ones who throw knives at his head.
* InnocentBlueEyes: They help solidify his youth and inexperience in this version.
* JumpedAtTheCall: When Splinter opines the need for a leader in the first episode, Leonardo raises his hand and asks if he can be it. It takes Splinter [[{{beat}} less than a minute]] to grant him his wish.
** Deconstructed later though when Leonardo begins to show signs of [[ResignedToTheCall regretting his choice]] when the burden of responsibility takes its toll on him, like it would any 15-year-old.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Once again, as per tradition.
* KidHero: All the turtles are this, but Leo fits the trope best.
* TheKnightsWhoSaySquee: Is like this when confronted with his favorite sci-fi show [[ShowWithinAShow "Space Heroes"]]
* MasterSwordsman: He's still very much learning to be one (especially when compared to the 4Kids Leonardo). However, he's showing encouraging signs of it.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: His allowing his brothers to attempt to take down Shredder while they were having an EnemyMine with Karai not only backfires, [[spoiler: but causes Karai to develop full-blown hatred for Leo and his brothers.]] [[LampshadeHanging Leo even acknowledges that he blew it.]]
* TheParagon: Discounting the above moment, Leonardo is consistently the most moral of the turtles and is the most concerned with being honorable and noble. This sometimes works against him though, [[WhatTheHellHero and he has come under criticism]] from [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Raphael]] due to his way of doing things.
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Raphael's red, and also reflected in the color of their headbands.
* ReverseGrip: Much more prone to this than in other continuities.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids: His beliefs that there was good in Karai are proven to be completely false.
** Not so much in the latest episode, when Karai is [[spoiler: dismayed at his decision to turn on her father; she clearly wanted to hold on to their shaky truce just as much as Leo]].
** Come "The Wrath of Tiger Claw" [[spoiler:Leo is ultimately proven right about Karai]].
*** Even with the above example, Leo is the one most likely to show empathy and fairness when dealing with enemies. That's why [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness it's a big deal]] when he makes less than honorable choices.
* SimpleStaff: He briefly wields Donatello's Bo Staff in "Pulverizer Returns"
* SpiritedCompetitor: Which is why he prefers fighting other ninja over the kraang.
* TheStrategist: Donnie is undoubtedly [[TheSmartGuy the Smart Guy]] of the team, but Leo's no slouch either. He's the one who usually comes up with the plans, whether they're high-level missions or just impromptu ways to get out of temporary jams.
* ThouShaltNotKill: Implied
* WeaponOfChoice: Twin Katanas.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Zigzagged. While most of what Leonardo does is to please Splinter, he sometimes disobeys Splinter or even do the opposite of what he says if Leonardo believes otherwise.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Was that supposed to sound tough or stupid?"-] ]]
* TheAce: Pertaining to combat skill. Clearly the physically strongest turtle in the beginning, his skills are also increasing faster than his brothers. While Leo performs better during training sessions with Splinter, Raph performs better in actual fights. For example, he was unable to detect Splinter's intent to attack him during training, while Leo was, but caught Xever's intent to attack later, when Leo didn't. He was also the first turtle to increase his skill enough to fight Xever and Bradford one on one, and currently tends to win against Xever overall, while the others team up against Bradford.
* AloofBigBrother: Partially inverted. He's younger (in fanon, never officially confirmed) than Leonardo making him an aloof little brother, but older than Michelangelo and Donatello, playing straight for them.
* AntiHero: Mainly of the PragmaticHero variety, but in "Never Say Xever" he goes a bit more towards HeWhoFightsMonsters.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: Sometimes, though it usually comes back to bite him.
* TheBeastmaster: Not only is he a bud to non-mutated creatures, but it seems that he can control them a fair bit, given that in "Follow The Leader", he ''gets a swarm of pigeons to help out in not getting detected''.
* BigBrotherBully: Towards Mikey and Donny sometimes, but he's [[CharacterDevelopment getting better about it]].
* BigBrotherInstinct: Towards Michelangelo, all the time. Raph is able to overcome even his fear towards a Terminator-esque Cockroach mutant the second Mikey's in trouble. He shows this towards Donny once as well, keeping him from embarrassing himself any further than he already has.
** And yes, this even includes Leonardo, especially in regards to Karai and the last battle of the Season Finale. It seems that this instinct is what makes him a great second in command but a poor leader; he's not willing to sacrifice his brothers and doesn't want them hurt.
* TheBigGuy: As with many of his incarnations, Raphael is the strongest of the turtles; whenever there's a need for brute strength, he's the turtle to call.
* BloodKnight: The most violent of the turtles for a reason.
* CharacterDevelopment: He's becoming much less abrasive to his brothers as time goes on, Donatello and Mikey in particular. He also finally accepted Leonardo as TheLeader.
* DeadpanSnarker: One of the most common users of snark in this series.
* DopeSlap: Frequently used against poor [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling Mikey]] and [[ButtMonkey Donnie]]. So much so that it's lampshaded by Mikey in [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E3TurtleTemper Turtle Temper]].
* FaceYourFears: In "Cockroach Terminator"
* FightingWithChucks: He briefly wields Mikey's nunchucks in "Pulverizer Returns"
** ChekhovsSkill: In "Target April O'Niel", he effectively uses one kusari-gama as Mikey uses the other to trap Chrome Dome.
* FlechetteStorm: Makes use of his shurikens far more often than the others. Leo even calls on him specifically to make a few throws.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The Foolish to Leonardo's Responsible but also the Responsible to Michelangelo's Foolish.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Choleric.
* FurryConfusion: He has a pet turtle.
* GoodIsNotNice: Despite his bad temper he IS still one of the good guys.
* GreenEyes: The only one to keep them from the 2003 series, since this eye color is usually associated with HotBlooded characters.
* HairTriggerTemper: To the point an episode was based around teaching him to learn to control it better.
* HeWhoFightsMonsters: In "Never Say Xever", he starts to show signs of this when he viciously condemns Leo's showing mercy, and expresses views more appropriate for someone like ThePunisher.
* HeroicComedicSociopath: In "Rise of the Turtles Part 2," he rips an arm off of one of the Kraang's robot suits and uses it to barricade a door, resulting in him getting looks from his brothers and Leo calling him "seriously twisted," which Raph [[InsultBackfire takes as a compliment]].
* HiddenDepths: Seems to have something of a soft spot for non-mutant animals.
* HotBlooded: To help contrast his calmer brothers.
* HypocriticalHumor: Mocks Casey's fear of rats, only to hide in his shell when Mikey shows him a cockroach. Pointed out by Mikey.
* JerkassFacade: Oh, he cares. He just doesn't want anyone else to know he cares.
* JerkassHasAPoint: In "Karai's Vendetta," when Donnie is fully prepared to abandon their mission to destroy the Kraang's base to save April from Karai, Raph quickly points out that if they do so, the Kraang will poison everyone in New York, ''including'' April.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: See JerkassFacade above.
* KnightTemplarBigBrother: Hurt his friends or family in any way and he WILL beat the shit out of you or die trying.
** PapaWolf: Also counts as this to an extent.
* KnuckleCracking: Of the neck variety.
* TheLancer: Once again, as per tradition towards Leo.
* MadeOfIron: The episode "Slash and Destroy" shows he can take ''a lot'' of punishment and still keep fighting.
* MeaningfulName: His nickname is Raph, say it out laud and it sounds like "wrath". Fitting for the turtle with the shortest temper.
* MoralityPet: All of his brothers, but in particular Mikey, as he is the one to cause Raphael's BigBrotherInstinct to go off the most.
* MusclesAreMeaningful: He is the "power" based brother in this series for a reason.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: Says this (Without the my god part)after she alerted Tiger Claw to their location when she realizes Hamato Yoshi is indeed her real father.
TheNapoleon: Raphael is shorter than Leo and Donatello, his stocky frame only helps to make him look shorter, plus he's got the temper to match.
* OffModel: Frequently shown to have his sais holstered on his back even at times he's lost them.
* OnlySaneMan: Comes across as this during the Turtles' missions, as he is the only one not easily distracted and not prone to geeking out for one reason or another.
--> '''Raphael (interrupting Leonardo and Donatello arguing about a bomb):''' Boy, I sure hope this argument ''goes on for another four minutes and fifteen seconds!''
** And earlier in the same episode, when the turtles are ready to escape the Kraang building, Leo starts signaling April with a bird call... despite the Kraang already shooting at them.
--> '''Raphael:''' What are you doing!? (Calling up) April, throw the rope!
* PressurePoint: So far the only turtle to pull it off.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Leonardo's blue, and also reflected in the color of their headbands.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: When he sees a cockroach.
* TookALevelInKindness: In "Operation: Breakout" he's noticeably nicer to Donnie and Mikey.
* {{Tsundere}}: Raph can be Tsun-Tsun towards his brother, but is Dere-Dere towards Spike.
* WeaponOfChoice[=/=]DualWielding: as the resident SaiGuy.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In "Cockroach Terminator", he is revealed to have a paralyzing fear of cockroaches. Raph even says this trope almost verbatim several times in the episode.
* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: His word for word reaction when he sees the mutant roach come back for more... AGAIN.

* {{Adorkable}} \ DorkKnight: Even moreso here than in previous adaptations.
* AllLoveIsUnrequited: April has yet to reciprocate or even really notice Donnie's feelings for her.
* BadassAdorable: He is an Adorkable badass ninja after all.
* BadassBookworm: The brains of the group and an effective fighter.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: In contrast to previous cartoons, where he almost never got angry, vexing this version of Don is liable to produce a sudden violent outburst.
* BerserkButton: Try to harm a hair on April and you're done. Karai tries to kill April in "Target: April O'Neil", and Donnie disarms and owns her in ''five seconds flat.''
* BigLittleBrother: He's the tallest out of the four turtles.
* BladeOnAStick: This version of his bo staff has a retractable blade on the end, allowing it become a naginata.
* ButtMonkey: Very often suffers from this.
* CloudCuckooLandersMinder: Often paired with or seen entertaining Mikey, and assigned to watch The Pulverizer. He is somewhat exasperated by this.
* CrushBlush: This happens almost every time he interacts with April.
* DeadpanSnarker: Usually to Raph or Mikey. This version of Donatello is notably less of a GentlemanSnarker than his previous incarnations, and more of a typical DeadpanSnarker.
* DoggedNiceGuy: Veering into StalkerWithACrush territory. His laptop wallpaper is a photo of himself with April, he uses his robot to get a closeup of her face without her knowing (at least, that was the intention), and he has a flowchart dedicated to getting her to hang out with him.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The responsible to Michelangelo's foolish.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Phlegmatic.
* GadgeteerGenius: Give him enough time and resources and he can make almost anything.
* GeekPhysiques: He's noticeably tall and skinny and has a gap in the front of his teeth. Karai lampshades this in "Enemy of my Enemy", much to Donnie's annoyance.
-->'''Don''': And [[ShoutOut I'm not scrawny!]] [[CodeLyoko I'm svelte!]]
* GeniusBruiser: Since he is both an effective ninja and a genius in many fields of science.
* HardHead: His cranium must be MadeOfIron, seeing [[OncePerEpisode how often]] he gets hit in the head or the face. Especially [[NotInTheFace the face]].
** Donnie getting [[FacePalmOfDoom grabbed]] by the face has become a running gag. As of episode 20, the Kraang, Leather Head, Dr. Rockwell, [[RunningGag Leather Head]], the ''Shredder'', a disembodied Kraang arm, [[RuleofThree Leather Head]], Spy-Roach, and Leather Head ([[EspeciallyZoidberg especially]] [[OverlyLongGag Leather Head]]) have all shown complete disregard for Don's [[IncrediblyLamePun personal-face]].
-->'''Donnie''': ''Why'' do you keep grabbing my face? What is wrong with my face?!?
* {{Irony}}: He can make remarkably boneheaded decisions despite his IQ. [[LampshadeHanging Splinter calls him on this in "Mutagen Man Unleashed".]]
* InsistentTerminology: He constantly states that the go-karts he's been working on are to be referred to as "Patrol Buggies."
* InterspeciesRomance: He wants to have this with April. They've shared the occasional hug, and she's pecked him on the cheek.
* LaymansTerms: Often the one doing the translating which he is sometimes visibly annoyed by.
* LongingLook: Often gives these to April.
* LoveAtFirstSight: He falls for April right away.
* MrFixit: He can fix almost any piece of tech he finds.
* NiceGuy: Especially in regards to [[DoggedNiceGuy April]].
* NotInTheFace: Leatherhead has quite the habit of grabbing Donnie by the face during his {{Unstoppable Rage}}s, which Donnie lampshades often.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: He seems to know a lot about multiple scientific fields, ranging from engineering to biology.
* TheProfessor: See above.
* PurpleIsPowerful: Sort of. Compared to a regular person, he's a 15 year old BadassBookworm Ninja Master. Compared to other 15 year old Ninja Masters, he's the scrawny [[TheSmartGuy Smart Guy]].
* TheReliableOne: If you need him to do something chances are he will find a way to do it.
* RedOniBlueOni: There are subtle hints of one developing between him And Casey Jones.
* SaiGuy: He briefly wields Raphael's sais in "Pulverizer Returns"
* TheSmartGuy: Once again as per tradition.
* ShesNotMyGirlfriend: Gets this a lot from his brothers regarding April.
** Teases Leo in the same way down the line regarding Karai, finally seeing the fun in the gag.
* StalkerWithACrush: His relationship with April has shades of this at times.
* SuddenlyShouting: Whenever he's stressed.
* TeenGenius: A 15 year old well trained ninja who can make almost or fix any tech his brothers may need or want.
* WeakButSkilled: Donatello lacks the pure athleticism of his brothers.
* WeaponOfChoice: SimpleStaff.
* WreckedWeapon: His bo staff gets snapped in half on a regular basis.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Booyakasha!"-] ]]
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Even though his postion as far as ages go is rather vague, his brothers clearly view him as one.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: And he himself acknowledges it in "The Pulverizer."
* AttentionWhore: Often overlapping with ''why'' his brothers get annoyed with him so much.
* BadassAdorable: A friendly, silly, and adorable badass ninja
* {{Beware the Nice|Ones}}/[[BewareTheSillyOnes Silly Ones]]: See above.
* BigDamnHeroes: [[spoiler: In "Parasitica" he not only cures his brothers of their {{Brainwashing}}, he also then saves them from the Parasitica wasps. He also pretty much lampshades this trope repeatedly to his brother's mild annoyance]].
* BifurcatedWeapon: Unusually, he can combine his two nunchucks into a kusarigama.
* BigEater: Especially when Pizza's involved.
* BrilliantButLazy: He's every bit as good a fighter as his brothers, but is also the most laid-back and prone to goofing off.
* ButtMonkey: Like Donny, he often suffers from this.
* CassandraTruth: Mikey is the first to discover the true nature of the Kraang, and when he tells his brothers, no one believes him. When they see it for themselves, Mikey quickly goes off on an "I told you so" routine.
* CatchPhrase: "Booyakasha!"
* ChainPain: His nunchucks can convert into [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kusarigama kusarigama]].
* CloudCuckoolander: And how.
* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: No matter how weird he acts he is still a well trained ninja after all.
* CuddleBug: His main hobby beside ninjutsu seems to be inflicting unsolicited physical affection on people.
* DeadpanSnarker: Less so than his brothers and Splinter, but he does snark occasionally.
* TheDitz: Often acts like this resulting in him on the receiving end of a...
* DopeSlap: Gets it a lot, usually from Raphael.
* FluffyTamer: He honestly thinks Leatherhead - the giant mutant alligator with anger issues - is "cute" and a "pussycat". He also successfully talks him down from an UnstoppableRage multiple times.
* TheFool: Similar to being TheDitz, he ends up as this a lot too.
* FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling: The foolish to Donatello and Leonardo's responsible.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: The Sanguine.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: In "The Gauntlet".
-->'''Don''': Why do [[CloudCuckoolandersMinder I]] always get stuck with Mikey?
-->'''Mikey''': Hey!
-->'''Leo''': I don't want him. And I'm in charge!
-->'''Mikey''': Hey!
-->'''Don''': Well, then make Raph take him.
-->'''Raph''': Over my dead body!
-->'''Mikey''': [[CaptainObvious You know, I'm starting to get the feeling nobody wants to be with me.]]
* FunPersonified: As a KidAppealCharacter and the most lighthearted member of the cast.
* TheGadfly: He acts like this a lot.
* GiverOfLameNames: Most of the time, he's the only one who thinks the names he gives out are cool.
* GroinAttack: He attempts one on Metalhead, with [[NoSell predictable results]].
* TheHeart: Towards his siblings. It's subtle, but it's there.
* HeroesPreferSwords: Amusingly invoked in "Pulverizer Returns" when Mikey decides that when using Leonardo's Katanas he automatically becomes the leader of the team, much to Leo's annoyance.
* HiddenDepths: "Parasitica" shows that, in a pinch, he's got a fairly good memory and ability to follow the typically long-winded instructions given to him by Donatello [[spoiler:before the Wasp's MindControl takes effect]].
** Shellachne also indicates that he's the best cook of all the brothers.
* IWarnedYou: After his brothers see the Kraang's true nature first hand, Mikey pretty much spends the entire rest of the episode rubbing it in their faces that he was right all along.
* InnocentBlueEyes: They go a long way toward making him look ''adorable''.
* InnocentlyInsensitive: At times. Like in the second season premiere; [[spoiler: the way he tells April that they were the ones who accidentally spilled the mutagen that turned her father into a giant bat just makes one want to punch him in the face.]]
** Another prime example would be when they discover that [[spoiler: April is actually a mutant hybrid of human and Kraang DNA.]] April is understandably shocked and frightened by this discovery. So what does Mikey say? "Aw, yeah! Welcome to the family!"
* JumpedAtTheCall: He loves everything about what he does.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: He briefly uses Leonardo's Katanas in "Pulverizer Returns."
** ChekhovsSkill: He uses a sword again in "Terget Aprl O'Neil", but this one was a bit [[LaserBlade different]].
* {{Keet}}: Very high energy and talkative.
* KidAppealCharacter: Bright orange, childlike personality, constantly making jokes and having fun...
* MoralityPet: As stated above he is this to Raph.
* NeverMyFault: Has a habit of this. From saying that Donatello shouldn't have trusted him with the T-Pod (something Mikey himself wanted to test), to drinking Retro-Mutagen and blaming Donatello for not telling him that it was dangerous (the container of which had ''multiple signs on it'' telling one to ''not drink it'').
* TheNicknamer: To the point he gets annoyed when one of their foes gives himself his new name.
* PluckyComicRelief: His main role.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: As per RuleOfFunny in some episodes.
* TheSlacker: When he isn't being too high energy for his own good.
* SmarterThanYouLook: As shown in "Parasitica" and lampshaded repeatedly.
* SurferDude: Moreso than in the 2003 series, but less so than in the 80s show.
* TeamChef: Revealed in 'Mikey gets Shellacne.'
* TooDumbToLive: Seriously, he finds a glass container filled with goo in Donatello's lab. It's labeled "Super Cooled", [[InsaneTrollLogic and thinks it mean that it will make him "Super Cool".]] Somehow completely failing to notice the large array of warning labels making it clear that the goo is toxic, (one even saying, "Mikey, Don't Eat Me") he puts it on himself. It turns out to be a failed attempt to create a Retro-Mutagen, causing him to break out in zits that would have caused him to explode if Donny hadn't cured him.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Pizza. He was the first to try it and tried to convince the others it tasted bad so he could keep the rest for himself.
* VariableLengthChain: Aside from his trademark nunchaku he can combine them (or something) into a kusarigama. That the kusarigama is frequently shown to be longer than both the nunchaku put together doesn't seem to matter.
* WeaponOfChoice: FightingWithChucks.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Frequently.
* YouthfulFreckles: To emphasize his childlike nature in contrast to his brothers.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Seek victory, not fairness."-] ]]
* ActionDad: As the turtle's adoptive father and master ninja mentor
* AdultFear:
** ''Panic In The Sewers'' shows he is terrified of his sons facing Shredder again. At the end of the episode, he apologizes for allowing his fear to infect them.
** In ''I, Monster'', [[spoiler: The Rat King]] confronts him with his fear of his sons not needing him anymore and leaving him alone.
** And in ''Showdown'', [[spoiler: Learning that Shredder kidnapped his daughter and raised her to hate him, believing he killed her mother.]]
** This is also implied to be the reason [[spoiler: he doesn't join the turtles in their assault on the Kraang. He knows his sons might not come back alive, and he can't bare to watch them die.]]
* {{Animorphism}}: From the human Hamato Yoshi to a gaint anthropomorphic rat.
* BadassBeard: A long and thin one.
* BadassGrandpa: Though he's not quite as old in this incarnation, he retains the distinction of being one of the few people able to go one on one with Shredder, himself capable of taking on all four turtles at once without breaking a sweat.
* BladeCatch:
** Does this with two fingers with a kama that April lost hold of while trying to find her a weapon in "Baxter's Gambit".
** Does it again in "Booyakashowdown". With his ''teeth''.
* BrokenAce: At first glance he appears like an infallible force of wisdom, honor, and good but whenever his past comes up he becomes plagued by indecision and fear.
* BrutalHonesty: Dismisses the Pulverizer as a "[[SophisticatedAsHell doofus]]", but to be fair, he's right.
* CaneFu: One that looks to be made of jade/emerald.
* CatchPhrase: "WHAT IS GOING ON IN HERE?"
* CodeName: He was going by Splinter before being mutated in this series.
* ConfusionFu: While he mostly uses the martial arts he mastered as a human, when pressed he'll start [[TheGlovesComeOff fighting like a rat]], throwing off opponents used to more conventional fighting styles.
** While his weapon appears to be a cane, he's also got a few tricks hidden in it. Not a surprise to a fellow master ninja, but to anyone else...
* CoolOldGuy: Displays these traits rather often.
* CombatPragmatist: See the image quote.
--> '''Splinter''': *surprise attacks Leo and pins him by the neck with his staff*
--> '''Leo''': ''OW!''
--> '''Splinter''': Was that fair?
--> '''Leo''': No!
--> '''Splinter''': Did I win?
--> '''Leo''': ... I see your point.
--> '''Splinter''': Seek victory, not 'fairness'.
** Which is justified and goes into FridgeBrilliance as he knows that some warriors, like the Shredder, would sooner drop out of a fight than play fair. He wants his sons to be willing to do anything to keep themselves safe, even if it means stooping to their level once in a while.
* CompositeCharacter: Like in the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 original cartoon]], Hamato Yoshi mutated into Splinter. He's also the one who bought the turtles from the pet shop instead of simply finding them in the sewer, taking the place of Chet in most other continuities.
* CursedWithAwesome: Being a rat, he's able to move far faster, shown in his fight with [[spoiler: Shredder]]
* DeadpanSnarker
-->'''Don''': All due respect, Sensei, but I can't keep fighting advanced alien technology with a [[SimpleStaff six-foot staff.]] I was kind of hoping to upgrade my weapons.
-->'''Splinter''': [[ComicallyMissingThePoint A seven-foot staff? Interesting]]
-->'''Don''': Actually, I was thinking of something a bit more hi-tech.
-->'''Splinter''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Ah! A solar-powered staff!]]
* {{Determinator}}: He's lost his family and his humanity leaving him with no choice but to live in the sewers with four mutant turtles. And he managed to make a new life and family out of it. The show does not gloss over this.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Downplayed, especially in comparison to other mutants. All his fighting prowess comes from his time before mutating but he can make good use of his tail to get the better of the turtles in training sessions. [[spoiler:Also uses his rat teeth to snap Shredder's blade in their fight.]]
* FacialMarkings: As a rat his fur pattern creates this effect.
* TheGadfly: He sometimes gets a kick out of riling his sons up.
* GoodIsNotNice: He can be pretty no-nonsense and tough on his sons when he wants to be, but only to teach them important lessons. There's also his lines in the season 1 finale trailer:
-->'''Splinter''': With the world at stake, the ''only'' thing of importance is that you complete your mission, [[WellIntentionedExtremist no matter what you have to sacrifice]]...[[WeHaveReserves or who]].
* HonorBeforeReason: This version of Splinter makes a point of consistently averting this trope. First when he urges Leonardo to [[CombatPragmatist seek victory, not fairness]] and then again when after Leatherhead is brought to the lair and he tells the turtles it's important to show compassion, his response to whether or not they'll still chain him up is:
-->'''Splinter''': [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Of course. I'm compassionate, not insane.]]
* InTheHood: His clothes have a hood, which he dons [[spoiler: during his assault on Shredder's building in the season one finale.]]
* LargeAndInCharge: This version of Splinter is OneHeadTaller than the turtles.
* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:Splinter, Karai Is Your Daughter]]
* TheMentor: To the Turtles obviously.
* MyGreatestFailure: His anger-fueled attack on Oroku Saki after he insulted him in front of Tang Shen caused their rivalry to intensify, eventually leading to the murder of his wife and the loss of his daughter at Saki's hands.
* NowThatsUsingYourTeeth: In "Showdown," he not only catches one of Shredder's blades with his bare teeth, he ''breaks'' it with them.
* OneManArmy: In "Showdown", [[spoiler:he delivers a CurbstompBattle to the ''entire Foot Clan'' (except Shredder) by himself.]]
* PapaWolf: As shown most prominently in Leatherhead's debut episode.
* PressurePoint: Used both in battle and on Raph when he's being ubnoxious.
* PrimalStance: A variant. When fighting the Shredder and [[TheGlovesComeOff taking off the gloves]], he runs on all fours and claws at him like an actual rat in between more disciplined martial arts..
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: To the Turtles.
* RodentsOfUnusualSize: He is taller than all of his sons despite being a rat.
* SophisticatedAsHell: For all his calmness and big words, he still calls the Pulverizer a "doofus."
* SparedByTheAdaptation: Much like in [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 two]] [[ComicBook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesAdventures previous]] adaptations, Hamato Yoshi survived his run-in with The Shredder and [[CompositeCharacter mutated into Splinter]].
* SternTeacher: The opponents that the turtles fight are no pushover, so it's justified. An example of this is shown in Panic in the Sewers.
* TeamDad: Once again as per tradition.
* YoungerAndHipper: This incarnation of Splinter is much younger than previous ones, but nevertheless still qualifies as both a BadassGrandpa and CoolOldGuy.

* ActionGirl: Grows into this, starting with Splinter agreeing to train her as a kunoichi.
* BadLiar: At least around Irma, who by her third appearance has figured out that April's got friends that she's hiding from her, in part because of April's rather poor excuses as to why she has to suddenly leave.
* CastingGag: Probably unintentional, but it's worth noting that Mae Whitman's mother Pat Musick voiced Mona Lisa in the [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 original series]].
* TheChick: Towards the turtles as usual, but a more action oriented one than in the past.
* CompositeCharacter: Shares some traits with the female turtle Venus de Milo from NinjaTurtlesTheNextMutation. Like Venus, she is treated as the fifth member of the group, uses the tessen as her weapon, and has [[TheEmpath latent psychic powers]]. She also wears her hair in a ponytail, which is similar to how Venus had part of her bandanna braided to resemble a ponytail.
* CurbStompBattle: On the receiving end of one in "Karai's Vendetta".
* DeadpanSnarker: She has her moments sometimes.
* DesignatedGirlFight: Her first fight was on the receiving end of a CurbStompBattle with Karai. In their first rematch she's able to get in a few good hits, but is still outmatched overall.
* DesignatedVictim / DistressedDamsel: Occasionally, but nowhere near as much as in the 80s show.
* TheEmpath: Which is [[spoiler: a rather rare ability in this series.]]
* FieryRedhead: More subdued than most cases, but still has shades of this.
* GaussianGirl: How Donnie first sees her.
* HalfHumanHybrid: In "The Kraang Conspiracy" it's revealed [[spoiler: she's half Kraang because the Kraang abducted and experimented on her mother, altering her DNA.]]
* HeroesWantRedheads: Donatello really wants her.
* HeroicResolve: During her [[CurbStompBattle fight]] with Karai in "Karai's Vendetta." No matter how many times Karai knocks her down or beats her senseless, April just keeps getting back up to try again.
* InSeriesNickname: Given the nickname "Red" by Casey.
* LoveInterest: For Donnie, expanding on the hints of a PrecociousCrush from the 03 series. While she's closest to Donnie out of the four turtles [[AllLoveIsUnrequited she doesn't reciprocate]] [[InterspeciesRomance his feelings.]]
** And now Casey Jones is in the picture as well...
* MacGuffinGirl: "TCRI" reveals her to be this. Taken even further in "Karai's Vendetta" where she now has the Foot after her as well, to the point that [[spoiler: Splinter and Leonardo tell her she'll need to stay in the lair indefinitely for her own safety.]]
* MissingMom: She doesn't have a mother. [[spoiler: Her revealing this to Karai catches her off guard long enough for her to take Karai down.]]
* NoSell: She is shown in [[spoiler: "Karai's Vendetta" to be immune to an acidic Kraang liquid, apparently at least in part because she is effectively half-Kraang. In "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", she is revealed to be immune to mutagen, as well.]]
* ObliviousToLove: Initially to Donatello. Becomes less oblivious as the show progresses.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Before her dad was kidnapped at least.
* PluckyGirl: As per tradition.
* RealityEnsues: In addition to April's training as a Kunoichi averting InstantExpert, her later fight with Karai makes no attempt to dodge the hard truth that someone who's been training for years and has been in actual fights is going to beat someone who has never been in a serious fight and has only been training for at most a few months.
* ReplacementGoldfish: Pretty much stated to be one for [[spoiler:Miwa]] by [[spoiler:Splinter]] towards the end of "Baxter's Gambit.'' though not in the hurtful kind of way.
* ShipperOnDeck: For Leo, at least until he [[spoiler:tells her that the girl he's interested in is a Foot Clan member]].
* TightsUnderShorts: Her most common attire.
* TookalevelinBadass: Is now training Casey Jones, who has trouble keeping up with her. Compare to Season One.
* TomboyishPonytail: More action oriented than obvious tomboy though.
* UnfazedEveryman: After adjusting to the shock of meeting the turtles.
* WeaponOfChoice: She goes through several choices in "Baxter's Gambit" before settling on a [[CombatHandFan Japanese metal war fan]].
* WhatTheHellHero: Gives one to the Turtles in "The Mutation Situation" [[spoiler: after she finds out that they were the ones who spilled the mutagen on her dad and turned him into a giant bat, albeit accidentally, to the extent that she declares their friendship over and swears that she never wants to see them again. However, she forgives them in "Target: April O'Neil when Casey tells of an event that happened between him and his best friend that ended their friendship.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: In "Fungus Humungous" it's revealed she has a fear of bats [[spoiler: probably caused by her father's mutation.]]
* YouCantGoHomeAgain: With both the Shredder and the Kraang after her, the turtles and Splinter decide that she must stay with them in the sewers for her own safety, at least until the crisis is resolved.
* YoungerAndHipper: This series makes her a young teen about the same age as the turtles.
* YouthfulFreckles: Partly going with the above.


!! Casey Jones
-> Voiced by [[Series/DrakeAndJosh Josh Peck]].[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/casey_8073.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"All my life I knew I was meant for something greater. ''This'' is my calling, my ''destiny''. My city is ''infested''."-] ]]
* AdmiringTheAbomination: He notes how cool Mutagen Man is, even during the fight in which Mutagen Man is trying to kill him.
* AmazonChaser: Liked seeing April beating up Mutagen Man with her Tessen fan.
* BadassNormal: He has none of the formal training of the Turtles or Splinter, but manages to go up against Mutagen Man, who is several times larger than him and has acid powers. He also takes out a bunch of Foot Bots the first time he meets them, armed with nothing but a hockey stick no less, putting his natural talent even above the Turtles who outright lost to the Foot Bots fighting as a team the first time around.
* BashBrothers: With Raphael after chasing down a runaway footbot together
* BigBrotherInstinct: In this variation, he apparently has a little sister he's looking out for.
* BloodKnight:
** Was seen fighting Mutagen Man instead of running away. Brave boy...
** Taken up a notch in his next appearance, where he thoroughly enjoys fighting an army of robot foot ninjas.
* BookDumb: He meets with April because he needs a tutor, not because he wants to get better in school mind you, but just so he doesn't get kicked off the hockey team. He's able to correctly identify the guys' names as Italian, which is probably more than your average high schooler can do,
* CatchPhrase: "GOONGALA!"
* DarkIsNotEvil: Has a punk aesthetic and his battle gear consists of a skull head themed hockey mask and black and war paint underneath, but is a good guy.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He hits April with a puck and tells her she should have gotten out of the way. And when talking to April later, says he'd like to become a hockey player... [[BloodKnight Or a Bounty Hunter]].
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Casey is worried about the mutants and ninja robots hurting his dad and sister.
* FireForgedFriends: With the rest of the Hamato clan. He befriends April after being forced to take her on as her tutor and they bond over both trigonometry and the attacks of Mutagen Man and the Footbots. Later with the turtles, Raphael sees him as a punk and Don as a rival for April and the others see him as an intruder to their secret lair, but after helping save the lair from being discovered by the foot even Splinter welcomes him into the fold.
* {{Foil}}:
** As opposed to [[IJustWantToBeNormal April]], he seems to ''love'' the idea of [[IJustWantToBeSpecial being attacked by aliens, robots, and mutants]].
** He's also this to Donnie, his rival for April's affections, being a BloodKnight who playfully flirts with her in contrast to Donnie's SmartGuy who obsesses over her without making any significant moves to win her over.
* TheGift: Casey's combat abilities, despite apparently being self-taught, are at least on par with that of the turtles.
* GoodIsNotNice: Seems to have a fairly antagonistic personality.
* HiddenDepths: It says something when the BookDumb bad boy chooses to write his personal journal in ''cursive'' (which some adults have trouble with), instead of plain script. He also cares more about the safety of others than his initial appearance implied. He also seems to have enough smarts to produce retractable roller blades and a makeshift ''taser''.
* HypocriticalHumor:
** Most of the jabs he makes at Donny also apply to himself so far. He once insults Donny by calling him 'stick-man' (ignoring that he uses a hickey stick as a main weapon)
** Pointed out by Donnie when he insults Donnie's teeth gape; Donnie responds by calling him 'cave mouth.'
* IKnowMaddenKombat / ImprobableWeaponUser: Uses sporting equipment, roller blades, and an improvised taser.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Hits two Foot Robots... With ''hockey pucks he launched into the air''.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Throwing a metal pipe at Mutagen Man and fighting a squadron of Foot Bots with hockey sticks and pucks? Yep, that's the Casey Jones long-time TMNT fans know and love.
* {{Jerkass}}: In his debut, he's smacking hockey pucks around and doesn't care who gets hit, nor apologize and tells April that she shouldn't be standing in the way of his pucks when she was rightfully standing in front of her locker.
** JerkWithAHeartOfGold: [[spoiler: In ''Target: April O'Neil'', he tells April about the time he hit his ex-best friend during a hockey game and his voice and face indicate he's remorseful even though it was an accident. Later, in ''The Good the Bad and the Casey Jones'', he immediately saves Raph from getting run over by a subway and when Raph returns the favor, he's grateful.]]
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: In "Target: April O'Neil," he recounts to April an accident he caused between him and his best friend that ended their friendship and remarks that "sometimes things happen that you can't control." As Donnie had previously stated the exact same thing to April, April slowly realizes that she's making the same mistake Casey's friend did and reconciles with the Turtles.]]
* JerkJock: In his first appearance he's smacking hockey pucks around the hallway without a single care for who he hits.
* IJustWantToBeSpecial:
--> "Who wants to be normal anyway?"
* LeanAndMean: In stark contrast to the 2003 version, who had a muscular built.
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: Zig-Zagged. He's aware bizzare things like the Mutagen Man and the robot Foot Ninja, but is entirely unaware of what's behind either, or that the turtles exist until his third appearance.
* LoveInterest: For April based on 25+ years of turtle history. This time the relationship is framed as a foil to Donnie who can't really act on his crush on April being a giant talking turtle.
* MacGyvering: For one, his taser appears to be made from a ''potato masher'' of all things.
* MultilayerFacade:
** He still has his signature hockey mask, but also has skull-shaped face paint under it.
** TheReveal of which seems to be a big ShoutOut to the comic, {{Batman}}/{{Grendel}} - the image is nearly identical (if messy), and the "blaaaaaaargh!" is the same.
* MythologyGag: He's on the hockey team. In previous incarnations, he wore a hockey mask and used a hockey stick as his primary weapon.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Briefly appears in the new season 2 opening, making his debut in "Mutagen Man Unleashed".
* RedOniBlueOni: Seems to be a subtle Red to Donny's blue
* RollerbladeGood: He has retractable skates this time around.
* RuleOfCool: The point of the hockey mask, apparently.
* ScaryTeeth: Well, not too scary, but he's missing his front teeth, [[TruthInTelevision As many hockey players do in real life]].
* ShockAndAwe: A new toy in his arsenal is a taser built in under one of his gloves.
* TheSouthpaw: As seen when he is writing in his journal, Casey is left-handed. It's also used as [[spoiler: ASinisterClue RedHerring.]]
* SpikesOfDoom: A few on his outfit.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Raphael per canon, but pretty much has this relationship with all four of them.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: For some reason, Casey is scared of rats. Hilarity ensues when he meets Splinter.
* YoungerAndHipper: Like April and Karai, he's now in the same age group as the Turtles.
* YouthfulFreckles: He has been given some freckles in addition to being aged down for this series, like April.

!! Spike
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spike_9273.png]]
Raphael's ordinary pet turtle. %%For tropes specific to Slash please put it in his section of the "Other Villains" folder.
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: From cute normal turtle to a homicidal monster. It's implied his StartOfDarkness was much earlier and mutating just gave him an outlet to express himself beyond chewing on his leaf in agreement with Raph's venting.]]
* {{Foreshadowing}}: While Spike is a rather stoic turtle he can be clearly seen to be smiling while watching [[spoiler: Raph lashing out against his brothers when he gets frustrated with them and started hitting Mikey with a rolled up comic book. Later on in the same episode he makes a sound from his mouth that later evolves into the roar he does as Slash.]]
* FurryConfusion: The mutant turtles' pet normal turtle.
* HiddenDepths: Since he is a normal turtle he can't really express his own opinions or thoughts to Raph or the others so he appears to be a simple, silent, and adorable ordinary turtle. Turns out [[spoiler: he ''really'' isn't happy about how the other turtles have been treating Raphael and [[MythologyGag has been learning ninjitsu by watching Raph practice so often around him]].]]
* MeaningfulRename: [[spoiler: Spike never really liked his old name and after mutating he tells Raphael that he would prefer to be called Slash from now on.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Spike's mutation from being an ordinary Tortoise into becoming the homicidal Slash.]]
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: As an ordinary adorable turtle.
* TheStoic: Spike is a pretty calm turtle and doesn't react to much. [[spoiler: Turns out he's just been really good at [[NotSoStoic bottling up his anger and frustration all this time]] which is what lead to him becoming Slash.]]
* SurrogateSoliloquy: "Spike, chew on your leaf if you agree with me".
* TeamPet: For the Hamato clan. [[spoiler: Until his mutation into Slash.]]
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: Leaves.
* TurtlePower: [[spoiler: More so as Slash than Spike.]]

!! Ice-Cream Kitty
--> Voiced by Kevin Eastman
A stray cat that April rescued and gave to Michelangelo, who almost immediately accidentally mutated it into an ice cream creature. Apparently still tastes good.

* {{Catapult}}: In his first appearance, Mikey throws him at the Rat King, who Ice-Cream Kitty proceeds to shred.
* CreatorCameo: He's "voiced" by Kevin Eastman, one of the creators of the ''TMNT'' franchise.
* RecurringElement: This series answer to Klunk. An orange stray cat that ends up belonging to Mikey. Though they took in a different direction.
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: For Michelangelo, [[IntendedAudienceReaction and the fans,]] the other turtles not so much.
* TeamPet: Taking over from Spike who left just 5 episodes before it was introduced.

!! Kirby O'Neil/[[spoiler: Wing Nut]]
->Voiced by Creator/KeithSilverstein
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kirby_8484.png]]
April's scientist father who gets kidnapped by the Kraang.

* {{Badass}}: In "The Gauntlet".
* BadassBeard: As you can see in his picture.
* BadassMustache: As seen as part of the above.
* BaldOfAwesome: Mostly on the top.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy[=/=]ManchurianAgent: [[spoiler: In the last three episodes of Season 1 before the Turtles are able to snap him out of it.]]
* ButtMonkey: His misfortunes include being kidnapped, being rekidnapped, having his mind controlled, and finally [[spoiler: Turning into a mutant that has to be caged]].
* DisappearedDad: A non-fatal example to April.
* DistressedDude: Was a captive of the Kraang during the first season.
* FieryRedhead: Inverted. His teenage daughter is a lot more fiery than he is.
** Played more straight in "The Gauntlet", however. See PapaWolf.
* KidnappedScientist: One of many.
* MythologyGag[=/=]ShoutOut: Most likely named after the character Kirby from the original comics and 2003 cartoon, who in turned was based on Creator/JackKirby.
** [[spoiler: After turning into a bat Mikey calls him Wingnut, a reference to a Bat alien from the '87 series and Archie comics. The name doesn't stick, though.]]
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: He looks a lot like Creator/JossWhedon.
* PapaWolf: In "The Gauntlet".
* RedHerring: [[spoiler: The show leads us to believe that the Kraang need Kirby for their plans, but it's revealed in "TCRI" that the person they ''really'' need is his daughter, April]].
* ShowAccuracyToyAccuracy: For some strange reason his figure of [[spoiler: mutant form is named "Kirby Bat" even though Mikey named it "Wing Nut" in the series itself, much to Donnie's displeasure.]] What makes it so odd is that this means they ''chose'' to use a LateArrivalSpoiler over keeping the preexisting characters name, see the MythologyGag spoilers. However, [[spoiler:Mikey does use the "Kirby Bat" name in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman".]]
* TookALevelInBadass: The Gauntlet.
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler: His mutation into a giant bat in "Mutation Situation". He is finally restored to his human form in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman".]]
* VaguenessIsComing: His warning to April in "The Gauntlet" is just that something terrible is about to happen.

!! Metalhead
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metalhead2012_1212.png]]
A robot turtle made by Donatello to fight in his place after he gets tired of breaking his bo staff.

* AIIsACrapshoot: [[spoiler: Subverted, in his debut, Metalhead is just a drone, and when his connection to Donnie is severed, a Kraang takes control of it and turns it against the turtles, and Donatello must destroy it. After he's been rebuilt Donnie installed a rudimentary AI in him, and he remains docile. In Metalhead Rewired he upgrades the AI and the trope seems to be played straight when he reneges to join the Kraang, but it's once again a subversion as he was doing so to free all their prisoners.]]
* ArmCannon: One of the various weapons in its arsenal.
* BadassAdorable: At least Michelangelo sees him this way.
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler: Gets re-built to take on the Kraang in the Season 1 Finale]]
* BallsOfSteel: Mikey tries to take him down with a GroinAttack, with [[AgonyOfTheFeet predictable results]].
* BerserkButton: According to Donatello, he "doesn't like being tickled"
* TheCameo: In "The Pulverizer" and "TCRI"
* CurbStompBattle: He dishes out two, first to all the Turtles except Donnie (which Donnie even lampshades), and then again to a group of Kraang that only ends when [[spoiler: Donnie loses Metalhead's signal after his antenna breaks off.]]
* DeathByIrony: [[spoiler: Aside from being destroyed his own creator, he's also taken down with the very weapon that Donatello's dissatisfaction with led to his creating Metalhead in the first place.]]
* FireBreathingWeapon: Metalhead can switch out his lasers for a flamethrower.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Metalhead's primary weapon. Notably when Donnie is in control the lasers are bluish white, but when the Kraang take control the lasers become the same fuchsia color of the Kraang's weapons.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: [[spoiler: Starts out as Donatello's robot, then gets hi-jacked by a Kraang, and then gets rebuilt to fight for the Turtles again]].
* HeroicSacrifice: Keeps the portal open so the turtles can escape, even though it means he'll be destroyed by the Kraang.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: [[spoiler: He was destroyed by his own creator. Not only that but Donnie also used Metalhead's own weapons against him during their fight.]]
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: [[spoiler: He's finally disabled when he's driven into the broken half of Donnie's bo staff.]]
* NoIndoorVoice: Comedic example. Due to Donnie's inability to control the speakers inserted into Metalhead, he often winds up being way louder than necessary. This is fixed later on.
* NoSell: Metalhead is shown to be completely immune to nearly all forms of harm, including multiple attacks from Leonardo's katana and repeated shots from the Kraangs' laserguns.
* PintSizedPowerhouse: He is noticeably shorter than any other character in the series thus far, even Raphael.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears walking around Donnie's lab in the new season 2 opening.
* RobotBuddy: To Donatello, the rest of the turtles don't take to him as well.
* RoboticPsychopath[=/=]KillerRobot: [[spoiler:After the Kraang take control of him.]]
* TheyKilledKennyAgain: He's pretty death prone, but Donatello always rebuilds him.
* WalkingArmory: FrickinLaserBeams, FireBreathingWeapon, RocketPunch, MacrossMissileMassacre... he's pretty much got it all.
* WeNeedADistraction: [[spoiler: Serves this role in the Season 1 finale]]

!! Dr. Tyler Rockwell
->Voiced by Creator/FrankWelker
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rockwell_9660.png]]
A scientist and former colleague of Dr. Falco. Used as a guinea pig for Falco's modified mutagen, becoming a mutant chimpanzee with psychic powers.

* BalefulPolymorph: Instead of giving him the appearance and attributes of a primate, the mutagen experiments that were performed on him turned him into one which, psychic powers aside, appears completely normal, showing no signs of having retained any of Rockwell's intellect or personality.
* ChainedByFashion: Has shackles on his arms, legs and neck. Justified because he's an escaped test subject.
* CombatClairvoyance: With justification, see below.
* TheEmpath: He reacts to other people's emotions, which allows April to connect with him due to possessing a similar ability.
* EyesOfGold: To indicate his unusual nature and abilities as an empath.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: The only clothes he is wearing are what survived his transformation and captivity.
* ManiacMonkeys: Even after the Turtles learn he's not just a mindless monster, he's still quite dangerous when angered.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant chimpanzee.
* TragicMonster: He was just an ordinary scientist before being turned into a test subject, and now he knows the feelings of everyone around him regardless of whether its positive or negative.
* TheVoiceless: He's one of the few Mutants in the show so far who can't talk.
* WasOnceAMan: Before his transformation.

!! Murakami
->Voiced by Sab Shimono
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Murakami_5316.png]]
A blind noodle chef targeted by the Purple Dragons and later Xever.

* BlindAndTheBeast: April takes the turtles to Murakami's restaurant specifically because he is blind and can't see that they aren't human. [[spoiler: He later figures it out through his other senses, but is not afraid and is very grateful to them for saving his life]].
* CoolOldGuy: He seems to be an understanding, reasonable, and nice guy in addition to being a great chef.
* DistressedDude: How the turtles' met him and after Xever captured him.
* HeroicBystander[=/=]HandicappedBadass: When Karai gets into his shop, he's quite suspicious of her, especially her order of Turtle Soup. When a fight breaks out, he throws the soup in her face and stalls her long enough for April to escape, all the while pretending to be a klutz via blindness.
* InnocentBystander: His primary role in the series.
* LennonSpecs: Sunglasses to hide/show that he is blind.
* SupremeChef: Two words- "pizza gyouza."

!! Pigeon Pete
->Voiced by AJ Buckley.
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pigeon_Pete_9346.png]]
A mutant pigeon and ex-prisoner of the Kraang. He delivers a message to April from her father and helps her and the Turtles find him.
* {{Adorkable}}: He ''loves'' bread crumbs and tried to ''extort'' the Turtles with his love of them.
* AlliterativeName: Since he is a Pigeon named Pete.
* AttentionDeficitOohShiny: Easily distracted by bread. Doubles as ThroughHisStomach.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: Bulging eyeballs with red sclerae, yellow irises and horizontal pupils.
* {{Flight}}: Well he is still a pigeon.
* FourFingeredHands: As a result of being turned into a human-based mutant.
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: For decencies sake, since he would have never worn clothes as a pigeon.
* InstantMessengerPigeon:
And a mutant one, at that.
Civilians]]
* MythologyGag: Named after Michelangelo's pigeon friend from the episode ''What's Michaelangelo Good For?'' of the 1987 cartoon.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: Out of the mutants in the series, he has far more human-like aspects, such as human-like hands and an exposed chest and upper body.
* WasOnceAMan: Inverted; he started out as a pigeon.

!! Leatherhead
->Voiced by Peter Lurie.
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_013_4792.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"[[SayMyName Kraaaaang!!!]]"-] ]]
A baby alligator the Kraang used as a guinea pig for the mutagen, and presumably other experiments. He managed to escape the Kraang, taking the power source for the dimensional portal with him.

* TheAloner: Though Mikey attempts to break through to him, [[spoiler: at the end of both of his appearances, Leatherhead is still alone.]]
* AxCrazy: When in one of his berserker rages.
* OneManArmy: Him against an entire army of Kraang. [[MookHorrorShow Feel sorry for the Kraang.]]
* TheBerserker: If the Kraang are involved or spoken about around him he becomes one of these, much to his displeasure.
* BerserkButton: Just the mere mention of the Kraang makes him fly off the handle and attack anyone close to him.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: He was subjected to horrific experiments by the Kraang.
* DarkIsNotEvil: But he's [[GoodIsNotNice not quite nice, either]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: To Mikey.
* TheDreaded: Of a sort. Given his temper and instability, when the turtles go to him for advice in "[=TCRI=]", they're all unsurprisingly scared of him.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Before appearing in the series, he was in "Dark Horizons", a flash game on the Nickelodeon website as the final boss [[AdaptationalVillainy and seeming villain of the piece]].
* EmotionalBruiser[=/=]BruiserWithASoftCenter: When not in Berserker mode, he's a genuinely nice guy.
* GameFace: He has a second set of eyelids just like the turtles that make his eyes appear completely white when his BerserkButton has been pressed and he loses control.
* GoodIsNotNice: He's bitter, anti-social, and has a HairTriggerTemper.
* GutturalGrowler: He has a very deep voice.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In "TCRI" where he goes through the portal to Dimension X to keep anything else from coming out of it.]]
* ImmuneToBullets: The Kraang typically fire innumerable rounds of laser fire into him. He doesn't even flinch. Possibly justified because ''normal'' alligators' scales can withstand a lot of punishment and he's a heavily powered up and mutated one.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Despite his berserker rages and subsequent aloof behavior he is a nice guy who doesn't want to hurt others, aside from the Kraang.
* LizardFolk: As a mutated Crocodile.
* LightningBruiser: Fast enough to fight evenly with the turtles and strong enough to [[spoiler:fight Traag evenly, a 20 ft. tall rock titan that required three turtles working together to knock down.]]
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From Baby Crocodile to human-croc mutant.
* MusicSoothesTheSavageBeast: Invoked by him in-universe. He tries to calm himself by listening to peaceful music from a record player.
* OddFriendship: Develops one with Michelangelo.
* ReluctantPsycho: He's well aware of how unhinged he is and is ''not'' happy about it.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: A mild case. While he's not evil or bad, he's not the nicest of folks, and is prone to going into berserker rages that make him a danger to everyone around him.
* RunningGag: His [[NotInTheFace grabbing Donnie by the face]] and manhandling him when in his BerserkMode.
* TragicMonster: He can't control his berserker rages that are a result of the Kraang's abuse so he tries to keep his distance from others for their own safety.
* UnstoppableRage: Even he can't stop it.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: After being flushed down the toilet by his owner's parents he was captured, mutated, and tortured by the Kraang resulting in what he is today.

!! The Pulverizer[=/=]Timothy[=/=][[spoiler:Mutagen Man]]
->Voiced by Creator/RogerCraigSmith
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Pulverizer_4264.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[[labelnote:Click here for spoilers]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mutaman_2149.jpg[[/labelnote]]]]
A Turtles {{Fanboy}} who is desperately attempting to be a superhero.
* AdaptationalBadass: [[spoiler:The [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 1987 Mutagen Man]] only had the ability to transform into other people temporarily. This Mutagen Man has HollywoodAcid, and gets ''more'' dangerous when he drinks Mutagen, acquiring actual control over the acid and super strength, along with a natural affinity for being NighInvulnerable.]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:This Mutagen Man is far more psychotic and dangerous than his previous incarnation.]]
* AppropriatedAppellation: [[spoiler:He calls himself Mutagen Man when told to stop stalking April, most likely remembering Mikey's nickname for him.]]
* AscendedExtra: The '87 Mutage Man was a VillainOfTheWeek. WordOfGod says in this show he'll play a big role in season 2.
* AscendedFanboy: Of the Turtles.
* BadassBoast: He gives some good ones to the Purple Dragons, but he can't really follow up on them.
* BadassNormal: Subverted. He's an awful excuse for a fighter who only ''tries'' to be a {{Badass}}.
* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: [[spoiler: He wanted desperately to become a mutant and as the Turtles explicitly point out in the episode, he got his wish.]]
* BlessedWithSuck: [[spoiler: His transformation into Mutagen Man in a nutshell. While being far more resilient to physical harm, he needs mutagen to continue fighting.]]
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: Upon his transformation into Mutagen Man, his body is a slimy clear liquid with his brain and other organs visible, his eyes and lips are on top of stalks.]]
* BrainInAJar: [[spoiler: As Mutagen Man.]]
* CannonFodder: [[spoiler:The Foot Clan drafted him as this, and he was too stupid to know what the Japanese term meaning it meant, and didn't know what the actual term meant.]]
* TheChewToy: Almost every scene he has ends up treating him like this, especially [[spoiler: his transformation into Mutagen Man.]]
* CloudCuckoolander: He isn't the brightest boy, is the turtles' personal LoonyFan, and his plans don't make that much sense most of the time.
* CombatTentacles: [[spoiler: His arms become these after his transformation into Mutagen Man.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of Zach from '87 (a turtle fanboy who tries to help, only he's ''much'' less useful) and [[spoiler: Mutagen Man]].
* TheDitz[=/=]TheFool: Even more so than Mikey. Splinter even calls him a doofus.
* DrivenToMadness: [[spoiler: Possibly. Its not clear if he turned on the turtles because he blamed them for what happened or because he's just feral now.]]
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler: The mutation makes him feral.]]
* FailureHero: He ''wants'' to be a hero like the turtles but has none of the skills or training required to be one so his attempts to "help" the turtles often do more harm than good.
* FatIdiot: Well, He appears overweight which makes his attempts at being a hero look even more pathetic, too lazy to put in all the training and work needed to be a vigilante, and too dense to see why it is necessary no matter how much Donnie tries to teach him. He even happily confesses to wearing muscle padding under his turtle hero suit.
* TheFriendNobodyLikes: To the turtles.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:After being doused with mutagen, he becomes NighInvulnerable.]]
** [[spoiler:"Mutagen Man Unleashed" shows that, when he drinks Mutagen, he obtains super strength, can control his HollywoodAcid along with having actual hands, and [[ImplacableMan seems hard to take down for long]].]]
* HeroicWannabe: As mentioned he wants to be a hero just like the ninja turtles, hence his (amateurish) superhero-like costume based on an [[MythologyGag older design]] of the turtles.
* HiddenDepths: During his training montage with Donnie, he made a picture of himself with muscles on a sketch pad that was well drawn and mentions driving/delivering ice cream from a truck which at the very least requires a driver's license.
* HollywoodAcid:[[spoiler: His whole body's made of it as Mutagen Man.]]
* HulkSpeak: [[spoiler: As Mutagen Man]].
* IdiotHero: Deconstructed rather horrifically in the end.
* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler: In a tragic way. His mutation into Mutagen Man is played DeadSerious with no jokes at his expense unlike previous victims. Mikey even ''stops joking'' after seeing what a TragicMonster he had become, only snarking when Leo ordered a distraction; even then, he still talked in a rather somber manner.]]
* LanternJawOfJustice: Since his design seems to be a parody of standard superheroes.
* TheLoad: To the turtles, especially Donatello, who ends up having to train him.
* MobileSuitHuman: [[spoiler: He gets this as a means of moving around]].
* MultilayerFacade: He still wears his turtle uniform under his [[spoiler: Foot Clan]] uniform.
* NeverMyFault: [[spoiler: As of "Mutagen Man Unleashed," his sanity has deteriorated to the point where he blames the Turtles for his mutation.]]
* NighInvulnerable: [[spoiler:As Mutagen Man, his body is acidic and impervious to harm.]]
* LoonyFan: Of the turtles.
* TheMole[=/=]TheInformant: Becomes one to the Turtles [[spoiler: while with the Foot Clan. Not that he's that great at it though.]]
* {{Ninja}}: [[spoiler: He joins the Foot Clan, albeit as a glorified errand boy and CannonFodder.]]
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Shows up in the new season 2 opening [[spoiler: as Mutagen Man in Donnie's lab.]]
* RunningGag: "The Pulverizer Returns" sees him twice running off down the same alleyway and causing a car crash both times due to his complete inability to be stealthy.
* TooDumbToLive: [[spoiler: Him trying to expose himself to the mutagen despite being warned how dangerous it is. Particularly egregious since Donatello repeatedly tried to save him from being turned into a Mutant yet he ''still'' willingly subjected himself to it.]]
* TragicMonster: [[spoiler: The most tragic of them all. Not even the Shredder was treated as seriously as him after his mutation.]]
* UnskilledButStrong: [[spoiler:It's pretty clear that Mutagen Man isn't very smart, but he makes up for it with super strength, [[ImplacableMan incredible difficulty to take damage]], and his HollywoodAcid.]]
* VaderBreath: [[spoiler:He's given a synthetic voicebox to allow him to speak as Mutagen Man, though the result is scratchy and labored.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Rivals [[spoiler: The Rat King]] for the amount of character spoiler tags on this page.
* WhatTheFuAreYouDoing: Since he wants to be like the ninja turtles he tries to fight like them even though he has little practice or patience to learn how to use ninjitsu correctly, which is why Donnie tried to act as his "Sensei".
* WholeCostumeReference: His costume looks like the Turtles from 80's cartoon, right down to the letter on the belt.

!! Irma
* AdaptationDyeJob: Irma's hair is black this time as opposed to being a brunette in the 80's cartoon.
* EarlyBirdCameo: Doesn't show up in person until midway through the second season, but but closeup picture of her eye [[FreezeFrameBonus can briefly be seen on April's cellphone in "Mousers Attack!"]]
* EncyclopaedicKnowledge: Rattles off a lot of information about rats off the top of her head carrying over as TheSmartGirl of the human allies from the 87 show.
* TheKlutz: Though not as much as her original incarnation.
* MotorMouth: As a function of being a [[EncyclopaedicKnowledge walking encyclopedia.]] See above.
* PerkyGoth: Has this aesthetic.
* PickyEater: She appears to be gluten-sensitive.
* YoungerAndHipper: Like April, Casey, and Karai, Irma's a teenager in this version.

!! Sir Malachi
->Voiced by Creator/PaulReubens

A larper obsessed with the role-playing game Mazes and Mutants who became a sparrow mutant after exposure to one of the scattered canisters of mutagen. He attempted to make the Turtles play with him by having them fight for their lives in a mental construct. After his game was beaten, the Turtles told him to stop forcing other people to play with him and parted with him on good terms.

* AlliterativeName: His real name is Martin Milton.
* AntiVillain: He may have put the Turtles through a lot of trouble, but in the end he only wanted other people to play with him.
* AuthorAppeal: The creators created him due to expressing interest in a "magic" character, and the role playing games they played in their youth.
* HandicappedBadass: He is missing a leg, which he has replaced with a wooden stick.
* HeelRealization[=/=]HeelFaceTurn: He is forgiven by the Turtles when he realizes that he shouldn't force people to play his game.
* WasOnceAMan: He is first seen in his mutant sparrow form. We don't find out that he used to be human until he later tells the Turtles his story near the end of the episode.
* YourMindMakesItReal: His powers in a nutshell.

*** Karai to Leonardo: The new Leader on the field, have the closest relationship with the master and are the most skilled.

!! The Shredder/Oroku Saki
->Voiced by Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_021_31.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-"Your skills are impressive. But they will '''not''' save you."-] ]]

-> ''"There is undoubtedly a fascinating story behind how my old nemesis came to teach ninjitsu to four mutant turtles. Perhaps I will let one of you live long enough to tell it."''

Once the best friend of Hamato Yoshi, jealousy over Yoshi's marriage to Tang Shen, who they both loved, prompted him to turn to the dark side, and attempt to kill Yoshi. A fire that broke out during the battle disfigured Saki, and seemingly killed both Shen and her and Yoshi's daughter. Subsequently becoming the head of the Foot Clan, Saki moved to New York to hunt down and kill his old nemesis after seeing a news broadcast that implied that Yoshi is still alive.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: He cuts through parts of a building sign like butter.
* AbusiveParents: Implied towards Karai, especially since he threatened to hurt her if she didn't obey him. [[EvenEvilHasLovedOnes She still loves him though.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Splinter and the entire Hamato Clan. Anything he does is aimed at either killing Splinter, or making him suffer.
* {{Badass}}: He's a very formidable combatant, as seen in "The Gauntlet".
** BadassBaritone: He's voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson. What did you expect?
** BadassCape: Though he [[TheCoatsAreOff sheds it]] when he fights the Turtles.
** BadassNormal: He appears to be a normal human, despite his extreme strength, speed and ferocity. And he's proven more dangerous than mutants and aliens the size of cars.
** BadassInANiceSuit: In Xever's flashback explaining his StartOfDarkness, Shredder, in silhouette, appears to be wearing a rather nice suit.
** HandicappedBadass: He's clearly blind in his right eye, and it doesn't make him any less formidable or scary.
* BadBoss: He makes it a clear point that he would not hesitate to mutilate his lieutenants if they disappointed him. He threatens to harm Karai in the same way if she doesn't eliminate Leonardo the next time they meet. Keep in mind that Karai's his daughter.
** In the episode "Pulverizer Returns!", he's gathering mutagen to use on his minions. If you're lucky, mutagen turns you into [[http://images.wikia.com/tmnt/images/3/3f/Fishface_mutates.jpg this]] or [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130418202651/tmnt/images/2/21/644650_531150070257262_373557306_n.png this]]. If you're ''unlucky'', you turn into [[http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130512183449/tmnt/images/e/ef/Timothy_Mutagen.png this]].
** [[spoiler:"The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman" has him detonate Baxter Stockman's Mutagen collar when all he probably really needed to do was tell Baxter to make more dangerous or intimidating mutants, and he barely even hesitates when Baxter starts begging Shredder not to do it.]]
* BaldOfEvil: Judging by the end of the first episode and Xever's flashback, his hair is gone, most likely due to the burn scars he's suffered. [[spoiler: Confirmed in the Season 1 finale when Splinter knocks his helmet off]]
* BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: Pulled off two at the end of Season 1, where he had the Kraang lure the turtles in and stage a breakout in their prison so the turtles would rescue Kirby O'Niel, who was being controlled by a device planted by the Kraang on him, with the plan being for him to kidnap April once he was taken to the turtles' lair, since he knew Splinter would come to his building to rescue her. It worked like a charm, the only thing that came close derailing it being the Newtrilizer breaking out.]]
* BigBad: As per tradition of the ninja turtles' franchise, he seems to be this.
** BigBadEnsemble: So far sharing this with the Kraang, as both of them have served as the main recurring threats and both playing a part in the turtles' origin.
* BladeBelowTheShoulder: His trademark tiger-claws, which here are bigger and come in a pair as opposed to just one. He can also have a third blade pop out of his gauntlets, and ''all'' of them are retractable
* BluntYes: When Karai [[spoiler:finally learns who her real father is and demands to know if it's true]], his only response is a "Yes." completely devoid of hesitation.
* BrutalHonesty: When Karai asks him if he would punish him even if she's his daughter. He notes that she's ''especially'' the case.
* ColdBloodedTorture: Threatens a captured Kraang with it to get him to talk.
* TheComicallySerious: Rather rare, but two instances stand out in "Panic In The Sewers" and "Karai's Vendetta", respectively:
--> (Learning that Dogpound was defeated) "...They defeated you with ''go karts'', and a ''water balloon''?"
--> [[spoiler:(Upon his first time speaking to one of The Kraang) "Do they ''all'' speak like this?"]]
* CompositeCharacter: His vocals and basic design take cues from the 1987 Shredder, but the clothes have a red tint similar to the original comics, while having the combat prowess and effectiveness of the films and 2003 incarnations.
* CoolHelmet: Like follows the samurai-like kabuto/helmet style of his previous incarnations.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: At the very least, Splinter sees him this way.
* CurbStompBattle: As per Ninja Turtle tradition, his first fight with the turtles is one of these in his favor.
* DirtyCoward: Beats on Splinter after he's been weakened by a poisoned-dart.
* TheDreaded: Even so far that ''Splinter'' had a nightmare of him slaughtering the turtles.
* EntitledToHaveYou: Had this mentality concerning Tang Shen, hence why he murdered her [[GreenEyedMonster when she chose Hamato Yoshi over him.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: Much of his scenes are usually threatening his men or being uninterested [[RevengeBeforeReason in anything but revenge]]. [[spoiler:"The Gauntlet" finally showcases him in a fight, and [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence the fight scene itself]] further shows his hunger for revenge as well as how brutal and quick on his feet he is.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Possibly his daughter Karai, but it's not clear. [[spoiler: Ultimately subverted in the Season 1 finale where it's shown that he's just using her to get back at Hamato Yoshi]].
* EvilCounterpart: Is this to Hamato Yoshi/Splinter. Both are equally skilled combatants, and both are the leaders of their respective clans. Chris Bradford/Dogpound even remarks on their similarities to Xever/Fishface, stating that Splinter is just as skilled as Shredder, but "doesn't have the stomach to finish the fight."
* EvilFormerFriend: To Hamato Yoshi/Splinter.
* EvilIsBigger: While not LargeAndInCharge, he's still much stockier than Splinter is while being the same height as him.
* EvilIsPetty: Of the RevengeBeforeReason variety.
* EvilLaugh: Doesn't usually do it, but does it much more frequently in the finale, where [[spoiler:he states that his revenge is already complete, as he's raised Splinter's own daughter to hate him]].
** Also lets one when he sees that Splinter is a Rat
* EvilOverlord: Of "the foot" at least, it is unknown how large it is though.
* EvilSoundsDeep: His voice is ''very'' deep this time around.
* FamilyUnfriendlyViolence: The aforementioned CurbStompBattle involves him kicking Raphael into an electrified sign and later dropping pieces of said sign on top of Michelangelo.
* GoodScarsEvilScars: A significant portion of his face is covered in burn scars, and his right eye is whited out.
* GreenEyedMonster: His jealousy of Hamato Yoshi for winning Tang Shen's love prompted their feud.
* IfICantHaveYou: To Tang Shen, to the extent that he burned down Splinter's house and killed her in a jealous rage.
** AccidentalMurder: Then again, according to the Turtlepedia it was implied to have been an accident.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's a BadBoss and quick to berate his underlings if they fail him, even if he doesn't kill them.
* KnightOfCerebus: The episodes he's in usually make it clear that it's not going to be the same as a one-off adventure, and whenever he's in a fight scene, [[FamilyUnfriendlyViolence things get really ugly]]. The fact that he's a much, ''much'' more personal enemy to the Turtles and won't settle for anything but attacking them where it hurts (such as [[spoiler:stealing Hamato Yoshi's child and raising her as his own to get his ultimate revenge on his former friend]]) earns him this status.
** To put another thing in perspective, the point when he finally got up and did something, it brought a darker shift in the show. [[spoiler: His VillainTeamUp with the Kraang also allowed them to nearly succeed in their invasion of Earth.]]
* {{Leitmotif}}: A rather morose, quiet theme irregularly shows up during scenes with him, before turning rather menacing, but still quite.
* LighterAndSofter: While he shares a lot in common with his 2003 incarnation, such as his AxCrazy personality, he is far less punishing and cruel, generally letting his minions live without much of a scratch on them. Although Season 2 and certain events, such as his near-complete lack of hesitance in mutating of Baxter Stockman and [[spoiler:Karai learning who her father actually is]] are starting to change this.
* LightningBruiser: Donatello described him like this. So far only Splinter has proven as fast, or as strong as him.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: His [[AllLoveIsUnrequited unrequited attraction to Tang Shen]] was what caused him to go from Hamato Yoshi's friend [[EvilFormerFriend to]] ArchEnemy.
* MythologyGag: When he first shows up in The Gauntlet, Donatello nervously says, "do you think that's The Shredder?" and Raphael replies, "well, it's definitely ''a'' shredder", referencing the various versions of The Shredder appearing in each of The TMNT series and original comics. WordOfGod says that The Shredder earned his title when Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird were talking about a villain who used cheese graters as offensive armor. Originally he was going to be called "The Grate-Man" but Pete Laird decided on "The Shredder".
* NoSenseOfHumor: He's very serious, to say the least. This is especially evident in his interactions with [[DeadpanSnarker Karai]].
* ObviouslyEvil: Let's see deep voice, evil scars, dangerous looking costume covered in spikes, calls himself "Shredder"... Definitely a bad guy.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: What he's been for most of the first season so far with the exception of "The Gauntlet" where he takes action against the Turtles after Bradford and Xever fail him one time too many.
* PragmaticVillainy: Despite Baxter Stockman's Mousers losing them a chance at finding the turtle's lair, Shredder spares him because he has use for his talents.
* PutOnABus: During an episode in early season 2, he mentions having to do business in Japan and leaves Karai to fill in for him while he's gone, he didn't return until "The Manhattan Project"
* RedRightHand: His burned face and blind left eye.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Has shown shades of this in 'Alien Agenda'. However, after Karai gives him a working piece of Kraang technology, he changes his tune. He does this ''again'' in "Enemy of my Enemy", prompting Karai (who also lampshades his problem) to seek an alliance with the turtles. Splinter calls him out on this in the Season 1 finale, claiming if he dies, [[AndThenWhat Shredder will have nothing]].
** A major part of his character is he is so consumed by his thirst for revenge nothing else ''matters'' to him at all. [[spoiler:Not even Karai.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: Still going with some of his older character designs.
* ShutUpKirk: Shredder's response to Splinter is that [[spoiler: after he kills him, he'll still have his daughter as a living symbol of his revenge for all her life.]]
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has plenty, going with his nickname "The Shredder".
* TookALevelInKindness: Sort of. While Shredder is still very much the BigBad and the Turtles' ArchEnemy, he's still ''way'' better here than the AxCrazy genocidal sociopath he was in ''WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003''.
** [[spoiler: He's still an asshole though, seen in the Season 1 finale though, where it turns out that he took Hamato Yoshi's daughter and raised her to hate her biological father simply to hurt Yoshi.]]
* TwoFaced: [[spoiler: The fire that killed Tang Shen has burned roughly half of Shredder's face, as shown when Splinter knocks his helmet off]].
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler: It appears that he and the Kraang will be doing this against the Turtles now that they've realized how much of a problem they are to both. He does so by helping to capture April and handing her over to the Kraang.]]
* VocalEvolution: His voice is a little higher pitched in "Enemy of My Enemy", sounding slightly more like his 1987 counterpart. It's still plenty deep though. "Karai's Vendetta" also adds a slight echo to his voice.
* WeUsedToBeFriends: With Splinter before their fight over Tang Shen.
* YankTheDogsChain: [[spoiler: He knew Splinter would come to his tower to rescue April, but he had already handed her to the Kraang by the time he got there what Splinter thought was April was a hologram. He probably did that just to mess with him.]]
* YouHaveFailedMe: Consistently averted, surprisingly. In contrast to his 2003 counterpart, this version of Shredder has yet to mutilate any of his lieutenants despite the fact that they have all failed him multiple times.

[[caption-width-right:150:[[spoiler: [-Rahzar-] ]]]]

A famous martial artist and one of the Shredder's lieutenants. Becomes a mutant dog [[spoiler:and eventually the 2012 version of Rahzar in season 2.]]

* ArchEnemy: To Michelangelo, due to the events of "New Friend, Old Enemy".
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: He has shades of it, especially as Dogpound.
* BadassNormal: Pre-Dogpound, he was able to hold his own against the Turtles, usually being able to fight two at once.
** BadassAbnormal: As Dogpound, he initially could take on all four them with so much as scratch on him, with typically trying from him rather than fight him.
* BadBoss: Consider who he works for, and this is a given; He is at one point seen kicking one of his own men while they're down when he's annoyed, and regularly belittles Baxter Stockman, sometimes alongside Xever. [[spoiler:[[TheDogBitesBack The latter didn't work out for him.]]]]
* BalefulPolymorph: He hates his mutation into Dog Pound. Subverted when [[spoiler: he mutates into Rahzar]].
* BarehandedBladeBlock: He can do this with just his ''fingers''.
* BeardOfEvil: As a human, though Dogpound still has his mustache.
* TheBrute: Big, bad, and brutish. He's far from DumbMuscle though.
* CoDragons: With Xever to Shredder, at least until Karai enters the scene. And notably this is after Bradford and Xever have fallen out of favor with Shredder.
* CoolHelmet: He has a Shredder-esque helmet, but he rarely wore it as human.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DemBones: [[spoiler: His transformation into Rahzar]]
* DemotedToDragon: In the second season, Karai becomes the new second-in-command and is left in charge, lowering his status to become TheBrute with Fishface.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: As Dogpound [[spoiler: and Rahzar.]]
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His BadBoss tendencies and rivalry with Xever are demonstrated within his introduction.
* EvilCounterpart: To Michelangelo.
* EvilSoundsDeep: As Dogpound and [[spoiler: Rahzar]].
* EvilVirtues: Bradford has a few of these traits, like his loyalty to the Shredder, his sense of honor in regards to his loses, and his valor in not giving up.
* FalseFriend: When Michelangelo attempts to befriend him, he goes with it and uses the connection to attempt to learn more about the turtles.
* FemmeFatalons: [[spoiler: His nails merge with his fingers to create natural claws as Rahzar.]]
* {{Foil}}: Prefers a more pragmatic approach and is rather famous, while his partner is a street rat who likes to take a much more violent and sadistic approach. His attacks are also much more brute force-based.
* GeniusBruiser: Can be quite the ManipulativeBastard when he needs to be. Best shown when he manipulated Mikey.
* GutturalGrowler: As Dogpound, but [[spoiler: as Rahzar, he's taken on a far more growling and gravelly tone of voice compared to his previous two forms.]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Wants to turn back into a human in ''Mikey Gets Shell Acne'', but changes his mind [[spoiler: upon his second mutation into Rahzar.]]
** [[spoiler: In ''The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman'' when he hears of the retromutagen, he wants it to be normal again, like Baxter. He seems to flip-flop, he likes being Rahzar better than Dogpound, but wouldn't mind being human again.]]
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Does this to a defeated Foot Ninja.
* LeanAndMean: [[spoiler: His Rahzar transformation causes him to become much skinnier]].
* LightningBruiser: He was fairly quick as a human, but lost this aspect when he became Dogpound, becoming more of a MightyGlacier, a fact he complains about in ''Mikey Gets Shellacne''. [[spoiler:He stops complaining when he mutates into the far more quick and powerful Rahzar]].
* ManipulativeBastard: Poor Mikey.
** Seems to also use his new form to manipulate The Purple Dragons into paying Shredder even more money.
** Not really manipulating, more like threatening to tear them apart if they don't give him what he wants. And are you going to argue with a giant muscled dog man?
* MightyGlacier: As Dogpound. His greater size makes him MUCH stronger, and he often NoSell attacks as opposed to dodging them, but it also too slow to dodge and his fights tended to have him mostly standing still. By the second season he's grown to detest this.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: [[spoiler: Ninja werewolf zombie mutant as Rahzar.]]
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: Not only does his attempted TakingYouWithMe in "The Gauntlet" disarm the Mutagen Bomb, it covers him and Xever in Mutagen, mutating them into a dog man and a fish man. It gets zigzagged though, since his mutant dog form has much more physical strength, along with increased sense of sound and smell at the cost of losing some of his speed and most of his stealth as a human ninja.
** That said, the sight of him and Xever getting mutated did distract the Shredder long enough for the turtles to get away from the Shredder as he about to kill them
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His look is based on ChuckNorris.
** He also shares his name with a martial artist who wrote the ''Young Samurai'' books.
* OutOfFocus: In the second season, even after his [[spoiler: secondary mutation into Rahzar,]] he doesn't play much of a role in the story in his appearances.
* PragmaticVillainy: While he does want to kill Michelangelo in "New Friend, Old Enemy", he says that he can't because Michelangelo is bait and will lead them right to the Turtles' lair.
* PunnyName: Mikey names him "Dogpound" as the first battle after his mutation has the Turtles "pounded by a dog" [[spoiler:and Rahzar as a "razor-faced dog"]].
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: His original costume invoked it. Now his pants and eyes do.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: As Dogpound.
* RedOniBlueOni: The red to Xever's blue.
* TheRival: To Xever
* SaltAndPepper: The salt to Xever's pepper.
* SleevesAreForWimps: As Bradford.
* TheRightHandOfDoom: Dogpound's left arm is grossly oversized. His right hand, meanwhile, seems to be completely covered in bone.
* TakingYouWithMe: Says this word-for-word to the Turtles before breaking open the Kraang's mutagen bomb. All it does is end up mutating both himself and Xever.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Subverted with Xever, as they hate each other.
** He seems to have taken a liking to Tiger Claw, come "Wrath of the Kuro Kabuto", where when they get the time to talk to each other, they discuss their reluctance to talk to each other before then due to animal traits, compliment each other's sense of smell, and agree that they ''both'' want to eat Xever, Tiger Claw due to general temptations, and Bradford "just to get him to shut up."
* TookALevelInBadass: After being mutated, he gains invulnerability to the point where Leo slashes him with his katanas, and he [[BarehandedBladeBlock catches them]], and strength enough to pick up a car. Not that this stops the turtles from defeating him.
** Takes another when [[spoiler:he falls into a vat of mutagen, mutating again.]]
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: He's a martial arts superstar with a chain of dojos across the country, but he's secretly Shredder's star pupil.
* VillainousFriendship: Type 3 with the Shredder, he's loyal and devoted to him, but the Shredder cares not for Bradford.
** Seems to be developing this with Tiger Claw, showing respect for their skills and a mutual dislike of Fishface.
* WasOnceAMan: After becoming Dogpound.

!! Xever/Fishface
->Voiced by Christian Lanz.
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Xever_918.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Xever-] ]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Fishface_4708.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Fishface-] ]]
A street punk who shares his knowledge of the New York underworld with The Foot. He used to just be a thief, but one day got caught stealing a BriefcaseFullOfMoney, that happened to belong to the Shredder, and luckily for him, the Shredder was impressed enough with skills to take him as a subordinate. Becomes a mutant fish.

* AfroAsskicker: While he was human.
* ArchEnemy: Seems to be Raphael's, since when the Turtles and the Foot clash, they usually fight each other.
* ArtificialLimbs: The reason why Baxter was taken by the Foot is because the Shredder needs him to give Fishface both artificial legs and what appears to be a scuba tank that pumps water into Xever's gills.
* AttackTheTail: Splinter beats him in [[spoiler: "Showdown"]] by tricking him into biting his own tail.
* AxCrazy: The most obvious case out of Shredder's henchmen.
* BadassBiker: He drives a fearsome-looking chopper in "Pulverizer Returns!"
* BadassNormal: Pre Fishface he was still able to hold his own against the turtles.
** BadassAbnormal: As Fishface, once he got his robotic legs, he started to fight all four them, and win.
* BadBoss: One of the few things he shares in common with his partner is his disregard for his henchmen and Baxter. [[spoiler:As with Bradford, [[TheDogBitesBack he never anticipated the possibility that Baxter would go for revenge]].]]
* BilingualBonus: He calls someone "Idiota" at one point.
* BlessedWithSuck: As a fish he needs water to breath, and he has no legs.
* ButterflyKnife: He shows off with one in his first appearance.
* CardCarryingVillain: He makes no attempts to hide how little he cares for others or how dangerous he is.
* TheCasanova: Implied by his yearnings for a lover in season two.
* CoDragons: With Chris to [[BigBad the Shredder]], at least until Karai enters the picture. Notably this is also after Xever and Bradford have fallen out of favor with the Shredder.
* CursedWithAwesome: He can inject venom into his opponents by biting them.
* DanceBattler: And surprisingly, it sticks after he gets new legs in his mutated form.
* DeadpanSnarker: Sometimes.
* DualWielding: Sometimes with switchblades.
* EmpoweredBadassNormal: As Fishface.
* EvilCounterpart: Possesses a preference for violence as well as a somewhat bad temper, much like Raphael, the character he usually tends to fight, and thus could be considered the logical extension of his personality if he were raised by someone like the Shredder. These similarities are [[NotSoDifferent called upon]] in "Baxter's Gambit", where a discussion as they're [[EnemyMine working together]] leads the two to conclude that they are "of a kind".
* {{Expy}}: Of Hun from the [[TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2003 2003 cartoon]] both having connections to street gangs specifically the Purple Dragons. The only difference is Hun is the leader of the Purple Dragons while Xever is merely an associate. There's also the fact that Xever and Hun were both mutated into animals. The animal mutation would also make Xever and Bradford expies of Bebop and Rocksteady.
* ExtremityExtremist: He attacks mostly with his legs.
* FishPeople: After getting doused in Mutagen.
* {{Foil}}: Prefers violent behavior and he's just a street rat, rather than his partner, the famous and pragmatic Chris Bradford. His fighting style is also much more fast-paced and quick.
* FreudianExcuse: Downplayed. In "Baxter's Gambit", he talks about his life as a street rat and how he had to become a thief in order to survive in the world, but he himself makes it abundantly clear that he ''likes'' to do terrible things.
* {{Jerkass}}: Mikey explicitly calls him a jerk when he's in the process of [[KickTheDog kicking the dog]]
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Downplayed, with his robotic legs and breathing apparatus, Xever is comfortable with his mutation, at least moreso than Bradford is, but when he thinks Stockman can change them back, he jumps on the chance.
* KnifeNut: His Butterfly knives are his WeaponOfChoice before his transformation.
* KnightOfCerebus: A minor one, he doesn't drain all of the comedy from a scene but his sociopathic tendencies are ''not'' PlayedForLaughs and he makes the Turtles question their sense of ethics in a case of HeWhoFightsMonsters in the first episode where he takes center stage.
* LackOfEmpathy: And it provides a major ethical dilemma for the Turtles.
* NameFaceName: Fishface.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Sounds like "sever", and he uses knives.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: His look is based on JimKelly.
* NotSoDifferent: See the "Evil Counterpart" entry above. He and Raph admit they're this in "Baxter's Gambit".
* ObviouslyEvil: He doesn't hide his nature from anyone and has no problems telling people about how he sent to prison, before Shredder broke him out.
* TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: Says it to Raphael [[spoiler: when he saves Raph from one of Stockman's traps.]]
* OutOfFocus: Was sidelined for several episodes after becoming Fishface, not doing much of anything until being upgraded. Shredder even mentioned that he was barely worth keeping around. This also hits him in the second season as he's only made two appearances by the middle of the season, not really contributing much to the plot.
* PsychoForHire: He says so to Raph:
-->'''Raphael''': "So, you do all this because you owe Shredder?"\\
'''Xever''': "Eh, mostly I like having a job where I get to crack skulls every day."\\
'''Raphael''': "[[NotSoDifferent Okay, I can relate to that]]."
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Bradford's red.
* TheRival: To Bradford
* SaltAndPepper: The pepper to Bradford's salt.
* ScaryBlackMan: Though not as dark as other examples, so he may be Black Hispanic or Brazilian instead.
* SlasherSmile: He often has one of these as a human, though since he is unhappy with his transformation Fishface doesn't smile as much.
* TheSociopath: Has no regard for any form of life whatsoever, is completely morally [[TheUnfettered unfettered]], and displays many other sociopathic traits. "Baxter's Gambit" however does show a slightly softer side of him in his interaction with Raphael.
* TheUnfettered: Described as such by Raph.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Subverted with Bradford, as they hate each other.
* TookALevelInBadass: Once Baxter finishes his new legs and breathing tool, he quickly shows in "The Pulverizer" that his new legs are even ''more'' versatile than his original ones, and on top of that, he has venomous teeth.
* VillainDecay: He's mostly relegated to a comedic role in Season 2, where he's slapped around by the Shredder to make a point, demonstrates more submissive behavior in regards to Tiger Claw (though this may be a skill difference and instincts taking prominence), that jar with his general control of the situations he was in in Season 1.
* VillainousFriendship: A Downplayed Type 4 with the Shredder. Like Bradford, the Shredder doesn't really care for him, but finds him useful enough to spring from jail and even commissions robot legs for him to stay in the fight. Unlike Bradford, Xever isn't necessarily loyal to the Shredder, mostly just in it for the thrills.
* WasOnceAMan: After turning into Fishface.

!! Baxter Stockman
->Voiced by Creator/PhilLaMarr
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_004_326.png]]
A scientist who decided to take revenge on all those who ever mocked him, going power mad in the process. After two solo outings, he was forcibly recruited by the Shredder.

* AccidentalMisnaming: People [[RunningGag will frequently]] get his name wrong every appearance after "I Think His Name Is Baxter Stockman". Even ''he'' got his own name wrong at one point.
* AfroAsskicker: When in the more dangerous version of his PoweredArmor.
* AttackItsWeakPoint: His head was left exposed after the Stockman-Pod upgraded into a HumongousMecha.
* AntiVillain: [[spoiler:In "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he only wishes to become human again, either via Donatello's Retro Mutagen, or more horrific means such as dipping a human in Mutagen and then going in himself, the results of which probably wouldn't even work.]]
* BigCreepyCrawlies: As Baxter The Fly
* BlackAndNerdy: He is black and is a nerdy scientist.
* BodyHorror: as Baxter the Fly
* ButtMonkey: Got this a lot back when he worked at TCRI, and it doesn't get better when he meets the turtles.
* CallBack: He uses Mousers like his other counterparts and [[spoiler:will become a mutant like his 1987 counterpart.]]
* CardCarryingVillain: Doesn't seem to deny that he's this trope, when Michelangelo asks why he's a villain.
* CompositeCharacter: Appears to be loosely based on the comics version in ethnicity, but his design borrows aspects of the version seen in the 1987 show (hairstyle, physique). [[spoiler: As of "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he has become a mutant fly, another trait of his 1987 incarnation.]]
* TheDogBitesBack: [[spoiler:After being picked on for almost every episode by the Turtles and threatened by his higher-ups, he decides to take payback in "Baxter's Gambit".]]
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom: To the point that everyone could see it coming from a mile away.
* EvilCounterpart: He loves technology, [[NotSoHarmless can be quite dangerous]] even though he's [[ButtMonkey mocked and sometimes even underestimated by his coworkers]], likes wearing purple and is kind of a dork, much like Donatello.
* EvilGenius: His role when working for the Shredder or when trying to use it to be a solo villain.
* EvilIsHammy: Nowhere near as much as his 2003 counterpart, but he still has his moments.
* FourEyesZeroSoul: Played with. While he's a bad guy who wears glasses, he lacks the cold-blooded sociopathic nature that generally comes with this trope.
* LaughablyEvil: His dorky demeanor and tendency to get angry over the Turtles insulting him made him quite entertaining. [[spoiler: He loses this trait after he becomes a fly mutant, however.]]
* MadScientist: Both in the sense of being angry at the world and not being very sane.
* NerdGlasses: Going with his nerdy portrayal in the series.
* NotSoHarmlessVillain[=/=]IneffectualSympatheticVillain: He treads the line between these two, the latter to the extent that Mikey actually suggests that they get him some ice cream rather than kick his butt.
* PoweredArmor: He had one in his first appearance. It was initially kind of crappy, but was upgraded by the T-Pod.
* RobotMaster: He uses machines to win his fights often, ranging from his powered suit to the mousers.
* SanitySlippage: [[spoiler:After his mutation into a fly in "The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman", he's become far less trusting and crazy thanks to it.]]
* SlasherSmile: When he uses the T-pod to upgrade his armor, he tries this, but it turns out too pleasant and goofy. He improves it in "Baxter's Gambit."
* StrawLoser: As part of being a villainous nerd, his pathetic nature almost makes him pitiable despite his clearly evil intentions.
* TrademarkFavoriteFood: After [[spoiler:mutating into a fly]], he has started to constantly eat candy bars.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Once he mutates into a fly, he dismantles a Foot Bot and subdues Rahzaar long enough to escape temporarily. He also proves to a more difficult opponent for the turtles without any technological aid]].
* UsedToBeASweetKid: "Baxter's Gambit" has him talk about his backstory, and he states that he used to be a nice kid. [[UnreliableNarrator It's not easy to guess if he's telling the truth or not.]]
* WasOnceAMan: [[spoiler: Gets turned into a fly mutant in ''The Lonely Mutation of Baxter Stockman'']]
* WhosLaughingNow: His motivation, though he hasn't been very good at his revenge schemes so far.

!! Oroku Karai[[spoiler:/Hamato Miwa]]
-> Voiced by KellyHu
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Karai_3089.png]]

The Shredder's [[DaddysLittleVillain daughter]] who takes over as TheDragon after Bradford and Xever fall out of favor with Shredder. [[DatingCatwoman Leonardo develops feelings for her]] [[HeelFaceTurn and desires to see her become good.]]
* AbusiveParents: Implied. She gets scared after making the Shredder angry with a comment, and he outright threatens to hurt her if she doesn't follow his orders.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Played with. While she still displays some shades of AmbiguouslyEvil and isn't as bad as her 2003 counterpart after JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, she doesn't really share the NobleDemon shades of her comic counterpart or her 2003 counterpart pre JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope, and is much more mischievous than both.
* AffablyEvil[=/=]FauxAffablyEvil: Friendly and sociable to the turtles but still very much a bad girl. [[spoiler: Following their betraying her trust, she develops a full-blown hatred of them.]] In "Karai's Vendetta," her normally sociable and easygoing personality here only serve to highlight the sadistic pleasure she takes in hunting April.
* ArrogantKungFuGuy: [[spoiler: Especially in "Karai's Vendetta"]]
* AmbiguouslyEvil: Subverted in "Alien Agenda", where the "ambiguous" part disappears. Played straight again in "Enemy of my Enemy" though, and the end of "Karai's Vendetta".
* AntagonisticOffspring: [[spoiler: Shredder revealed to Splinter that after their fight, Shredder took Miwa away and changed her name to Karai. However, Shredder told her a different story, reversing his and Splinter's positions, so Karai doesn't realize she's this.]]
* AntiVillain: Subverted, [[spoiler: then later played straight: something of a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds example (she's only evil due to circumstances she couldn't control when she was a baby) with shades of NobleDemon (Though as noted below, she's kinda erratic on that.]]
* ArchEnemy: To Leonardo as of "Enemy Of My Enemy" and April as of "Karai's Vendetta".
* BadassBiker: In her street clothes and due to having a motorcycle that she drives in "Enemy of my Enemy" and "Karai's Vendetta".
* BadassNormal: She has no special powers beyond her training and no transformations or robotics to enhance her in any way.
* TheBaroness: Sexpot variety.
* BigRedButton: Apparently cannot resist the urge to press them, as seen in "Alien Agenda".
* BoyishShortHair[=/=]DelinquentHair: Well she very tomboyish and her short two tone hair goes well with her bad reputation, which she is very proud of.
* CardCarryingVillain
-->'''Raph''': She's ''bad news''!
-->'''Leo''': No, she's not!
-->'''Karai''': Yeah, I am.
* {{Chickification}}: At the end of her HeelFaceTurn episode she's kidnapped by TheDragon and imprisoned by the BigBad, promptly becoming a DamselInDistress.
* CleopatraNose: Of the most prominent of the human cast, and she is still seen as rather good looking.
* CoolBike: Uses one in both "Enemy of my Enemy" and "Karai's Vendetta"
* CoolHelmet: A Motorcycle helmet for the aforementioned CoolBike.
* TheCorrupter: Tries to be this to Leo. He in turn, [[HighHeelFaceTurn tries to get her to become good.]]
* CurbStompBattle: Her fight with April is her giving one of these to her...[[spoiler: until April gets her to let her guard down by mentioning her MissingMom.]]
* DaddysLittleVillain: Shredder is her father. [[spoiler: Except not really.]]
* DarkActionGirl: She's been able to hold her own against any of the turtles, and has no trouble at all with the Kraang-droids.
* DarkIsEvil: She primarily wears dark colors and makes no secret about how dangerous she is to the turtles.
* DatingCatwoman: In only one episode, she and Leo connected pretty well. Subverted later in "Alien Agenda" when she betrays Leo and he gives up on her. Shades of this pop up again in "Enemy of my Enemy"...[[spoiler: only to end up coming apart at the seams again.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Compared to her previous incarnations, this version of Karai is much more snarky and less serious, willing to snark even in front of her father.
* DragonWithAnAgenda: Starting with season 2.
* EnemyMine: Briefly with the Turtles against the Kraang, but then subverted [[KickTheDog when she takes a broken droid and abandons the Turtles to fight the mutant monster she created.]]
** She does this again in the aptly-titled "Enemy of my Enemy", where she actively seeks out the alliance after learning of the danger of the Kraang. [[spoiler: Once again, it doesn't last, but this time, it's the turtles' fault rather than her own.]]
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: Her father, Shredder. [[spoiler: And despite never having met her, her mother.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: When the turtles betray her trust in "Enemy of My Enemy," she is unsurprisingly disgusted with them for doing so, though she has [[{{Hypocrite}} little room to talk]].
* EvilCounterpart: To Leonardo, both are the best students of their masters.
* EvilVersusEvil: Briefly against the Kraang.
* FacialMarkings: Are they makeup or tattoos? Who knows.
* ForTheEvulz:
-->'''Leo''': Karai, [[YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre you don't have to do this.]]\\
'''Karai''': I know. That's what makes it ''fun''!
* FriendlyEnemy: To the turtles, at least on her end. [[spoiler: The "friendly" part was cut for a while, though she seems to be rekindling with them after discover that they're practically her brothers.]]
* GreenEyedMonster: Signs of it towards April in "Karai's Vendetta" when she angrily demands to know what makes April so special as she's [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown pounding her into the dirt]].
* [[spoiler: HighHeelFaceTurn]]: [[spoiler: The only female villain on the Foot and she finally sides with the Turtles for real after learning that Splinter was her true father all along.]]
* HeelRealization: [[spoiler:Feigned believing that Splinter was her true father to get the turtles to bring her back to their lair. It actually hit when she saw Splinter had a copy of the full picture of Tang Shen and Yoshi, of which she had only ever had the Tang Shen half.]]
* HellbentForLeather: Her street clothes.
* HiddenAgendaVillain: [[spoiler: Her actions and expressions during the coda of "The Alien Agenda" indicate she has reasons all her own to make sure the Foot Clan get advanced technology.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Her explanation for not killing Leo, and probably anything else she does. [[spoiler: Shredder's private conversation with his daughter implies he believes that might not be the ''only'' reason, though.]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler: She's not in the best position to criticize the Turtles for betraying her when she had earlier done the exact same thing and showed absolutely no remorse doing so. That said though, it's equally telling that the Turtles gave ''her'' grief for betraying them yet later betrayed her in turn.]]
** In season one, she remarked that Shredder was "obsessed with revenge". In season two, she becomes bent on taking revenge against Splinter, even disobeying Shredder's orders to do so.
** She stops Shredder from killing a weakened Splinter by claiming it would be dishonorable, except she was the one who fired the tranquilizer dart at him in the first place while he was fighting off Tiger Claw.
* JerkWithAHeartOfJerk: Seems this way at the end of "Alien Agenda". Later appearances subvert this and show that she really does have good qualities and that it's just (literally) difficult for her to express them due to her LackOfEmpathy.
* JerkassHasAPoint: [[spoiler: While it is true that the Shredder is the turtles' enemy, in choosing to try and take him out they show that this is more important than their alliance with Karai, which was the source of Karai's disappointment. She thought the turtles, in particular Leo, was better than that and was willing to work with her against a common enemy and is right to say that Leo was the one who betrayed her this time, not the other way around.]]
* JumpingOffTheSlipperySlope[=/=]TookALevelInJerkass: [[spoiler:Starting in "Karai's Vendetta", where following her coming to hate the Turtles fully goes from an AffablyEvil FriendlyEnemy to a sadistic and FauxAffablyEvil seeker of vengeance. It only got worse when Splinter became involved....]]
* KickTheDog: She abandons the turtles to fight an EldritchAbomination she created, which causes Leo to give up on her...until the next time they met, anyway.
** [[spoiler: While her rage against Splinter is understandable and even pitable since it's a huge lie Shredder has fed her all her life, she certainly doesn't come off too well trying to kill the Turtles or April just to personally hurt him.]]
* LackOfEmpathy: As stated above, she abandons the Turtles even though the EldritchAbomination attacking them was her own fault, and when Leo points out that he trusted her, she mocks him. Then again, she was raised by a full-fledged sociopath, so it isn't very surprising.
* LaserGuidedTykeBomb: [[spoiler:Shredder's more or less made her his pawn in his revenge against Splinter.]]
* LoveMakesYouEvil: [[spoiler: A variation. While Karai was always a villain, her hurt at Leonardo's betraying her trust in him prompts her to go from a FriendlyEnemy with a DatingCatwoman type relationship with Leo to a hateful ArchEnemy]]
* MakeUpIsEvil: She has red lipstick and heavy eyeshadow.
* MasterSwordsman: She appears to be as good as Leo, if not better.
* MeaningfulName: Karai means "Weapon". [[spoiler: Which is more or less what Shredder is using her as; a means to hurt Splinter, as she's actually his daughter.]]
* MissingMom: Mentioned in "Karai's Vendetta", [[spoiler: which is later revealed to be Tang Shen. Turns out she was told by Shredder that Splinter killed her, when it was in fact the other way around.]]
* MoralMyopia: She called the turtles out for betraying her even though she betrayed them first.
* MulticoloredHair: Her hair in the front is black/dark brown while the roots in the back are blonde. [[spoiler: Although flashback stills as a baby showed her with much lighter hair than her parents.]]
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler: Says this after alerting Tiger Claw to the location of the lair. (Without the "My God" part.) When she realizes that Hamato Yoshi is indeed her real father]].
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: She accidentally creates [[EldritchAbomination Justin]]. Leo even points out it's her fault, [[LackOfEmpathy but she doesn't care.]]
* NobleDemon: Zigzags on this like all hell. She may occasionally show signs of honor and compassion, but this is interspersed with trying to kill the guys [[SinsOfTheFather for Splinter's (alleged) crimes]] and [[StuffedInTheFridge April just to hurt the guys]].
* NotSoDifferent: She and Leo get into this, as do she and April.
* OnlySaneMan: Unlike the Shredder, she understands thwarting the Krang's alien invasion of Earth should probably take priority over revenge on the turtles.
** Also counts as PragmaticVillainy.
* PetTheDog: Is actually willing to help with no strings attached in "Enemy Of My Enemy", and shares a moment of empathy with April in "Karai's Vendetta" that allows April to escape her.
* PluckyGirl[=/=]SpiritedYoungLady: Villainous example of both.
* PragmaticVillainy: In "Alien Agenda" in contrast to [[RevengeBeforeReason Shredder]].
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Her reflection appears in Shredder's mask in the new season 2 opening.
* PsychoticSmirk: She makes one at the end of "Alien Agenda".
* RavenHairIvorySkin: Save for a part of the former that's [[BlondesAreEvil dyed blonde]]
* RealNameAsAnAlias: She goes undercover using the name Harmony. However, "Karai" does not mean "harmony." [[spoiler:"Miwa"]], however, does.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[spoiler: Against the Turtles as of "The Enemy of My Enemy"]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Karai''': Our deal's off! You want a feud? [[ArchEnemy You've got one!]]]]
* RousseauWasRight: Cruelly subverted. Her abandoning the turtles to a monster she created causes Leo to give up on her.
** Double subverted in "Enemy of my Enemy" where she actively seeks out an alliance with the Turtles, reigniting Leo's hope that there's goodness in her.
* SillyRabbitIdealismIsForKids
-->'''Leo''': I trusted you!
-->'''Karai''': [[LackOfEmpathy I know!]] [[LampshadedTrope That's messed up, right?]]
** [[spoiler: This gets turned on its head later:]]
-->[[spoiler: '''Karai''': I thought you were my [[FriendlyEnemy friend!]] [[DramaticIrony How could you betray me!?]]]]
* SpikesOfVillainy: Downplayed. There's a few small ones one her armor. Her street clothes feature a jacket that has a ton of these.
* StealthHiBye: To Leonardo in "New Girl In Town"
* TomboyishSidetails: So far she is definitely the most tomboyish girl in the show.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: [[TragicVillain Her entire LIFE]].]]
* WomanInBlack: Most of the time.
* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: Leo tried to make her realize this early on, but so far, he [[IgnoredEpiphany hasn't gotten through]].
* YouKilledMyFather: She believes that Splinter killed her mother. [[spoiler: Except it's all a lie, and Splinter is her biological father.]]
* YoungerAndHipper: Like April, she's been aged down to 16 years old.

!! Tiger Claw
-->Voiced by Creator/EricBauza

The most feared assassin in all of Asia, the Shredder has recently hired him to help him in his fight against the Hamato Clan.

* BountyHunter
* Determinator: Manages to cut his way out of the Kraathatrogon, defeats the 80's Turtles, and jumps through dimensions, defeating every enemy in his way, including a whole army of Kraang, all to return and have his revenge.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: He makes his respect for the Shredder and disdain for the Foot Clan apparent very quickly, and when Karai is about to attack Tiger Claw, he pulls a gun on her without skipping a beat.
* {{Expy}}: Of Boba Fett from StarWars, especially with the ShoutOut of the Boba's defeat by jetpack and Sarlacc.
* EyepatchOfPower: [[spoiler:His appearance in the toyline shows him with an eyepatch.]]
** Confirmed in his return.
* FreezeRay: One of his weapons that he employs in combat, presumably to assist in capturing opponents alive.
* JerkAss: He doesn't seem to particularly care about Shredder's clan, and makes that thought known when Karai talks badly of him.
* {{Jetpack}}: He has one that allows him to obtain an aerial advantage.
%% * PantheraAwesome
* ProfessionalKiller: Described as "Asia's deadliest assassin" at one point.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: He appears in the opening in his first appearance, "The Manhattan Project". [[spoiler:Which makes his supposed death by Kraathatrogon highly suspect.]]
** And returns after an OffScreenMomentOfAwesome.
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Has a nice-looking blue scarf.
* SwordAndGun: His primary weapons.
* TookALevelInJerkass: He was villainous but still honorable. Upon his return, his honorable side is no more and he's just now filled with rage and focused solely on revenge.
* VillainousFriendship: Has a mutual sense of respect for Bradford.

!! Fong, Tsoi, and Sid

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Sid_7288.png]]
[[caption-width-right:150:[-Sid-] ]]
A trio of thugs who make up the Purple Dragons, a street gang roped into working for the Shredder by Xever. Fong and Sid are both voiced by Andrew Kishino, while Tsoi is portrayed by James Sie.

* AbandonedWarehouse: Their headquarters is an empty fortune cookie factory.
* AllThereInTheScript: Only Fong's name has been mentioned on-screen. Tsoi and Sid's names appear in the episode credits.
* BadassCrew[=/=]BadassNormal: Subverted. They're weaker than the Foot Ninjas and are treated as CannonFodder by the turtles. They are in running for the turtles' least threatening adversaries.
* BadassMustache: Tsoi.
* TheBrute: Sid.
* TheCameo: In the season 1 finale
* DartboardOfHate: A picture of an actual turtle, with a red ninja mask scrawled on it.
* DropTheHammer: Tsoi.
* GangBangers: They are the gang "The Purple Dragons".
* GoldfishPoopGang: While they do show up rather often they aren't ever seen as much of a threat.
* {{Jerkass}}: All of them
* KnifeNut: Fong.
* LeanAndMean: Fong is extremely gaunt.
* {{Mooks}}: They are weaker than Foot Ninjas, and thus make better cannon fodder.
* OddlySmallOrganization: We have never seen that many Purple Dragons despite being a prominent street gang.
* OutOfFocus: After Xever got mutated, they started to appear less and less, until eventually making an unvoiced cameo in the season 1 finale. They finally reappeared in the season 2 episode "The Good, The Bad, and the Casey Jones".
* RousseauWasRight: [[spoiler: When it look like Xever, Bradford and the Foot Ninjas have the turtles beat, Fong tosses Leo (who had let him go earlier) his sword, [[TheDogBitesBack though it was possible he did it to get back at Xever for knocking him around]]]].
* ShameIfSomethingHappened: They're introduced trying to extort Murakami, and a later episode reveals they have to pay tribute to the Shredder, presumably for the "priviledge" of operating under his name.
* {{Tattooed Crook}}s: Like most stereotypical gang members.
* TerribleTrio: Subverted. They're a trio of bad guys, but they lack the needed individuality that comes with this trope, all having more or less the same personality.
* TheTriadsAndTheTongs: They all appear to be Chinese.

!! The Foot Ninjas
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/foot-w145-h275_7914.png]]
The openly acknowledged CannonFodder of the Foot Clan.

* AdaptiveAbility: Season 2 introduces us to [[MythologyGag robot Foot Ninja]], who catch on to a person's attack pattern as a fight goes on.
* AdaptationalBadass: The robot Foot Ninja seem to be far more dangerous and powerful here due to their AdaptiveAbility, whereas they were just CannonFodder in the 1987 series.
* BadassArmy[=/=]BadassNormal: Subverted.
* CannonFodder[=/=]{{Mooks}}
* CoolMask: With almost bug-like eyes, like most incarnations of the foot.
* DarkIsEvil: Mostly black, fitting their role as stereotypical ninjas.
* TheFaceless: Since they are never seen unmasked, and the robotic foot wouldn't have a face aside from their "masks" any way.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: And lampshaded by the turtles in "Pulverizer Returns". Justified because it turns out that most of them are not properly trained ninjas but rather just anyone the Foot Clan can find and recruit.
* {{Kiai}}: Robot Foot Ninja constantly shriek in small bursts.
* MalevolentMaskedMan: As mentioned they are malevolent and are never seen without wearing their masks.
* MechaMooks: In Season 2
* {{Ninja}}: Duh.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Their primary color scheme.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The lenses on their masks are red.
* ReplacementMooks: Season 2 replaces the human mooks with robots who are far more powerful than the previous ones.
* TheVoiceless: Aside from the robotic foot's monkey-like shrieks.

!!Chromedome
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chromedome-w145-h275_6523.png]]
An upgraded robotic foot ninja created using Chris Bradford's armor, first sent out to hunt down April. The 2012 version of Chromedome.

* AIIsACrapshoot: Created for Karai to destroy April, but the Kraang put in an override program to capture her instead. It later malfunctions, and starts trying to destroy everyone in sight instead.
* {{Badass}}: It gives the team a hell of a fight.
* EnergyWeapon: [[WhipItGood Whips]], [[FightingWithChucks chucks]], and [[LaserBlade swords]].
* EyeBeams: Uses these to bisect the [[DeadlyDisc manhole covers]] shot at it by the Shellraiser.
* {{Flight}}: Via RocketBoots.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Defeated when Mikey impaled it with its own LaserBlade.
* KingMook: Far more advanced than the Foot Boots, and based on Bradford's old armor instead of the standard Foot uniforms.
* MythologyGag: Named after Chromedome from the 1980s series
* PaletteSwap: It's pretty clearly the human Bradford in his ninja garb, but with some minor alterations in color and proportion.
* RobotMe: Of Bradford, pre mutation.

[[folder: The Kraang]]

->Voiced by Creator/NolanNorth
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_022_2738.png]]

-> ''"The turtles must be eliminated from all places."''

A race of malevolent brain-like creatures from another dimension, they've been abducting and recruiting human scientists to help them modify their mutagen, which they plan on altering the Earth's atmopshere with.
* AliensAreBastards: They want to invade our planet, and remake to their liking, and don't care how many of us they have to torture or kill.
* AlienInvasion: [[spoiler: Which comes to a head in the season 1 finale]]
* AllThereInTheManual: The UK TMNT comics call the Kraang disguises "Normans". There's a quick reference to this in "The Kraang Conspiracy" when a TCRI keycard is shown to have the name "Norman Kraangenhoffer" on it.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil[=/=]AliensAreBastards: Just about every single Kraang shown so far is an enemy of the Turtles.
* AxCrazy: In the "Kraang Conspiracy" they attempt to collect DNA from April with a very large needle to the head April nervously asks if if they could just use a bit of her hair they say it would work but this way is more entertaining.
* BayonetYa: Though rarely used, a good many of their laserguns feature chainsaw-like bayonets not unlike the ones from ''GearsOfWar''.
* BigBadEnsemble: With the Shredder. Although, they have much more prominent role than the Shredder, being more dangerous than him and his Foot Clan and being directly or indirectly responsible for everything that happens in the series, making them ''the'' BigBad for the entire first season and overall main villains in the series.
* CannonFodder: The basic Kraang droids are pathetically easy to beat, and readily fall against not just the Turtles, but also every other character who's ever gone up against them...[[IdiotHero except]] [[FailureHero the Pulverizer]].
* ColdBloodedTorture: To Leatherhead, to the extent that just the mere mention of their name sends him into an UnstoppableRage.
* CompositeCharacter: The Kraang combine the name of Krang from the original cartoon with elements of the 1984 comic/2003 cartoon's Utroms, such as their robotic human disguises.
* ConservationOfNinjitsu: Avoided in the first two episodes, where they do fairly well against the Turtles, though this might be because the Turtles hadn't quite learned how to work together yet. Later episodes play it straight, with several Kraang troopers not being able to cause much damage, but when they bring out Traag or a spaceship designed specifically to kill them, they are much more difficult to overcome.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: They all talk like this.
-->"This place is a place that you are not allowed to be in this place."
** Shredder lampshades this in "Karai's Vendetta"
-->'''Shredder''': Do they all talk like that?
* DittoAliens: All Kraang aside from their much larger ruler look the same.
* BadassInANiceSuit: In their human disguises.
* DullSurprise: Their human disguises are as monotonous as their speech pattern.
* EatenAlive: [[spoiler: The fate of any Kraang that comes across the "Newtralizer"]].
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: The Kraang all fight using laser blasters. Justified because they're aliens from another dimension.
* HiveMind: They appear to be this, as they all act identically and each refers to themselves as "Kraang".
* HughMann: When they are using their robots to appear human, and the UK TMNT comics even call them "Normans".
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Standard for TMNT, they can never hit a damn thing. They do manage to hit Leatherhead and the Spy-Roach, but they prove [[ImmuneToBullets immune]].
* JetPack: Some of them wear them in "The Pulverizer" and "Cockroach Terminator"
* MechaMooks: Courtesy of their exosuits.
* MobileSuitHuman: Since the Kraang don't look human they use these to blend in.
* StarterVillain: Though they differ from other examples in that they are also the BigBad.
* {{Technopath}}: One took over Metalhead, though it was probably only due to it being derived from their technology.
* ThirdPersonPerson:
--> '''Kraang:''' Give to Kraang the power cell that Kraang has come to demand that you give to Kraang!
--> '''Michelangelo:''' It's the Kraang!
* VillainExitStageLeft: They're surprisingly quick on their tendrils when it comes time to jump ship.
* VillainsOutShopping: Two Kraang's have a conversation about a gluten free diet making one of their member thinner.
* VillainTeamUp: [[spoiler:It appears that they and Shredder will be doing this against the Turtles now that they've realized how much of a problem they are to both. They do so during the last episodes of Season 1. Shredder captures April to lure Splinter into a trap, and then hands her over to them when he succeeds in doing so.]]
* TheVoiceless: Outside of their robo-suits, the Kraang seem to only be able to speak in shrieks and snarls.
* ZergRush: It seldom helps them though.

!! Kraang Prime
-> Voiced by [[Series/{{Roseanne}} Roseanne Barr]]
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kraang_prime_5687.png]]
-> ''"Like all Kraang, I am Kraang. But you can call me Kraang."''

Leader of the Kraang and mastermind of their invasion force.
* AlienInvasion: Leads a full-fledged Kraang invasion in the season one finale.
* AmbiguousGender: Not only do Kraang not really have defining gender characteristics, it's VoiceOfTheLegion seems to contain both a male AND female voice.
* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: ''Much'' larger than a standard Kraang. This goes double for its robotic body.
* BiggerBad: Kraang Prime was behind everything that the Kraang did throughout the series, but wasn't directly mentioned or didn't actually appear until the finale.
* CombatTentacles: Its MobileSuitHuman has these.
* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: Kraang Prime speaks without the aid of his exo-suit and does so in a much less redundant way than his minions. He even refers to himself in the singular, specifically naming himself 'Krang'. He does, however, occasionally slip into the redundant habit of his lessers. Unlike them, it isn't humorous.
-->'''Kraang Prime''': The invasion that is known as the invasion of Earth begins...'''now'''.
* ExoticEyeDesigns: It's retinas are vaguely star-shaped.
* HiveQueen: Since the Kraang seem to have a hive mind and she is clearly in charge of them.
* LargeAndInCharge: The largest of all the Kraang so far.
* LargeHam: Prime speaks ''much'' more dramatically than any other Kraang in the series, possibly in part because it speaks directly instead of through a robotic suit.
* MobileSuitHuman: Though much less humanoid than the Kraangdroids.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: More obvious than most Kraang since her mouth is much bigger.
* NeverSayDie: Averted.
-->'''Kraang Prime''': [[PrepareToDie All of you will]] '''[[PrepareToDie die]]''' [[PrepareToDie here!]]
* OneWingedAngel: Appears to be stationary and stuck in a hole in the wall, but after the Turtles foil its initial plans, it rips its way out to reveal its towering robotic body.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SmugSnake: She is very smug and arrogant.
* ThirdPersonPerson: Like most Kraang.
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Sounds like at least two different voices saying the same lines.

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/TMNT_Alien_Agenda_032_410.png]]
A research scientist from the World Wide Genome Project who takes a particular interest in April. She's really a Kraang-droid, minus the Kraang.

* ArmCannon: She can shoot missiles out of her ''elbows''.
* BackForTheFinale: Seen reinforcing Kraang Droids guarding TCRI in the season 1 finale.
* HotScientist: Well she is supposed to be a scientist at least.
* ImplacableMan: Like most robots in fiction.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: She throws razor sharp sheets of "paper" from her clipboard.
* NeverMessWithGranny: She appears to be based on a older human than most Kraang-Droids.
* PaperMaster: In one of the few scenes where she was fighting.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SuperPoweredRobotMeterMaid: The Kraang really pulled out all the stops with her.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Like most robots in fiction her eyes do end up turning red.
* RobotGirl: And an older robotic woman at that.

!! Traag

[[quoteright:185:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/185px-S01E17_Traag_1249.png]]
A rock titan from Dimension X. [[spoiler: The Kraang summon him in "[[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E17TCRI TCRI]]" as part of their takeover of earth, and he fights the Turtles before being sent back to Dimension X by Leatherhead.]]

* AdaptationalBadass: Traag in the 80s cartoon was little more than a rock soldier with a name. Traag here is 20 ft Tall, spews out lava, and can pull himself together after being blown up.
* AnArmAndALeg: [[spoiler: Leonardo blasts all of his limbs off in the season 1 finale, but he's able to call them back to him.]]
* ArchEnemy: Seems to be this to Leatherhead, given the latter's reaction when he sees him in "TCRI."
* BackForTheFinale: [[spoiler: The Kraang bring him back for the season one finale.]]
* ConvectionSchmonvection: He's a towering MagmaMan, and yet the Turtles and Leatherhead are able to touch and attack him without getting burned.
* DishingOutDirt: He is a rock titan/golem like creature in addition to his fire abilities
* HealingFactor: He's able to literally pull himself back together is he loses a limb.
* ImplacableMan: Traag is so large and sturdy that the Turtles' attacks merely bounce off of him. [[spoiler: Even dynamite fails to harm him for long]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Possibly in the Season 1 finale when Leonardo destroys TCRI but it's not clear]]
* MagmaMan: TronLines of magma cross over his body and limbs, as well as giving him GlowingEyesOfDoom and a ThroatLight.
* OurGiantsAreBigger: Traag is a ''lot'' bigger in this continuity. WordOfGod states that he's 20 feet tall.
* PlayingWithFire: Traag can spit a stream of lava from his mouth.
* TheSpeechless: He does have some impressive roars, though.

!!The Sea Monster
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sea_monster-w145-h275_4677.png]]

A huge aquatic beast the Kraang brought from Dimension X to guard their underwater base/Kraang-water production facility. The Turtles distract it to enter the base, but have to fight it to escape.

* AttackOfTheFiftyFootWhatever: Its head alone is as tall as Donatello, to say nothing of its length and width. The creature's entire body is longer than the Turtle Sub and just as tall back-to-belly, but it's not as thick.
* DistractedByTheSexy: The beast is quite attracted to the Turtle Sub, which saves the Turtles' lives.
* LoveHurts: When Leonardo releases explosive charges to get the creature to release the Turtle Sub, it has a very sad expression as the Sub escapes into the distance.
* MadeOfIron: Shrugs off both the explosion of the Kraang base and the Turtles' explosive charges with nary a scratch.
* TheSpeechless: Being an animal, it never utters a word.
* StockNessMonster: The creature has the same body style as most reports of Nessie, with a humped back and swan-like neck. Its flippers are more paw-like though, with rounded ends and short claws. It also has two tendrils dangling from its lower jaw.
* StockSoundEffect: When holding the Turtle Sub, the creature makes humpback whale and orca calls.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-Snakeweed-] ]]
A driver for the Kraang who gets mutated into a mobile weed.
* AlienBlood: After his mutation into a plant based creature, since it has "blood" that is like chlorophyll.
* BodyHorror: Not only is his heart clearly visible in his mutated form, his bones and muscles can be seen on the inner sides of his legs.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The Turtles were the one who accidentally caused him to mutate.
* EnemyMine: Was perfectly happy to join forces with the Turtles so everyone could escape the Kraang prison.
* HealingFactor: Since Snakeweed is part plant.
* LiterallyShatteredLives[=/=]LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: He gets frozen and then shattered to pieces in "New Girl In Town". [[HealingFactor It doesn't last]].]]
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant weed.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler:At the end of his first appearance. This happens again in "New Girl In Town".]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:In the comic adaptation.]]
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Snake" is probably not his real name.
* PlantPerson: As Snakeweed.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* StarterVillain: The first mutant the Turtles fight.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: Subverted and lampshaded: he mutates into a plant, while Mikey thought he would turn into a snake because of his name.
* WasOnceAMan: After his transformation.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: After his mutation, the Turtles have no qualms against potentially lethally electrocuting him. Of course, given that he works for the Kraang and helped them capture April, they weren't very concerned with his safety to begin with.

[[caption-width-right:150:[-Spider Bytez-] ]]
A middle-aged schlub who attempts to parlay his recording of the turtles into big cash, only to get turned into a spider-like creature by the Kraang's mutagenic ooze.
* {{Acrofatic}}: As Spider Bytez.
* BullyingADragon: As a human, he tried to blackmail the Turtles into giving him money for his picture of them, even though he clearly saw them fighting alien robots without a sweat. Had Splinter not instructed them to try to get the picture back without violence, they would probably have taken it from him easily.
* TheBusCameBack: After an absence spanning almost a year and a half, he made his return in "Metalhead Rewired".
* {{Cephalothorax}}
* EnemyMine: Pleaded for one the entirety of "Metalhead Rewired", before getting his wish when the Turtles and all the mutants work together to escape the Kraang.
* FatBastard: Even when the Turtles tried to save him from the Kraang, he kept acting like a {{Jerkass}} [[TooDumbToLive to the point it allowed the Kraang to notice the Turtles' intrusion]]. You ''really'' don't feel sorry for him when he gets mutated.
* FatIdiot: Continually mistakes the Turtles for frogs, for one thing, despite the very obvious fact that frogs don't have shells. "Metalhead Rewired" reveals he just calls them frogs to make them angry, since when under the control of the Kraang, he calls them "the turtles who I call frogs".
* GiantSpider: As Spider Bytez.
* {{Greed}}: So, so very much.
* HateSink: Not even a shred of likability.
* InstantExpert: He gets the hang of his new form and abilities right off the bat, with no [[HowDoIShotWeb learning curve]] whatsoever. Unlike Snakeweed, who at least expressed mild surprise when one of his severed limbs grew back, he isn't even shocked to discover he can throw up acid and webbing.
* {{Jerkass}}: Big time.
* LargeHam: More so after his transformation.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From human to mutant spider.
* NonStandardCharacterDesign: His design is remarkably different from most mutants in the show, having a much less visceral, more cartoonish design.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
** AdvertisedExtra: Qualifies as this, seeing as he's made only two appearances in the series.
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: As Spider Bytez.
* SmugSnake: Or spider as it were.
* SuperSpit: He can spit webbing and acidic loogies.
* TrashTalk: Why Raph had to put is "Ignoring Insults" training to good use against him.
* ToiletHumor: In his first appearance, whenever he shot out webs, fart sound effects could often be heard. This trait appears to have been discarded in "Metalhead Rewired", where it's instead replaced with a noise more common to spider characters (specifically, [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan Spider-Man]] or [[WesternAnimation/TransformersPrime Airachnid]] whenever they shoot webbing).
* TooDumbToLive: He called the turtles frogs and continued to mistake them as being such when they obviously weren't. Combine that with the BullyingADragon and FatBastard tropes above and you have this.
* UngratefulBastard: To the point where Donnie blatantly asks the others ''why'' they're trying to rescue him in the first place.
* WasOnceAMan: After his transformation.
* XtremeKoolLetterz: His mutation name "Spider ''Bytez''".

[[caption-width-right:150:[[labelnote:Click here for spoilers]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Rat_King_2740.png[[/labelnote]]]]
A scientist involved with the Kraang. He modifies their mutagen, tests it on one of his colleagues, and then uses it to give himself psychic powers. A subsequent lab accident turned him into this continuity's version of the Rat King.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Most incarnations of The Rat King either want to be left alone or just advocate rats, sometimes even working with the Turtles. While this one keeps the rat advocate trait,[[spoiler: he seems to be fond of personally attacking people or works to spite those around him (be it harming Rockwell or enjoying the fact he's going to make Splinter kill his sons).]]
* AnimalMotifs: [[spoiler: As The Rat King, which this incarnation takes a little farther by showing his eyes sunken in, his fingernails having grown much longer, and grotesque teeth.]]
* BandagedFace: [[spoiler: As the Rat-King, thanks to the accident that transformed him disfiguring his face.]]
* TheBeastmaster: [[spoiler: Also as the Rat-King.]]
* BitchInSheepsClothing: He appears to be a pretty nice guy for most of his first appearance; we only learn at the end of it that not only was he the villain of the episode, [[spoiler:but he also practiced experiments ''on his own partner'' just so he could get psychic powers]].
* BodyHorror: [[spoiler: As the Rat King, he is hideously emaciated and corpse-looking, likely having been burned terribly when his laboratory caught fire.]]
* BreakThemByTalking: [[spoiler:Attempts this on Splinter.]]
* CombatClairvoyance: Thanks to the mutagen.
* DarkIsEvil: His new look as [[spoiler:The Rat King]] evokes this to the extreme.
* DiscardAndDraw: [[spoiler:His empathic abilities seemed to be temporary, but manages to get the presumably permanent ability to control rats.]]
* EvilCounterpart[=/=]NotSoDifferent: Tries to paint himself as this to [[spoiler:Splinter, saying that they both have lost their humanity, see through the eyes of rats, and eventually lost everything that they stood for]].
* {{Expy}}: Of Herbert West from the ''Film/ReAnimator'' films, right down to having the [[Creator/JeffreyCombs same actor]].
* FromNobodyToNightmare: [[spoiler:Goes from a scientist to a (temporary) empath to a man who controls all the rats in New York City.]]
* HorseOfADifferentColor: He rides a darker-than average giant Rat named Caligula.
* {{Hypocrite}}: [[spoiler:He displays a surprisingly callous attitude toward his own "brethren", saying that not every experiment can be a success when a rat accidentally mutates itself into something that clearly won't be able to sustain itself. He also sends several rats plummeting to their doom in an attempt to just rid himself of Splinter.]]
* KnightOfCerebus: Not so much so in his first appearance, but [[spoiler:as the Rat King, he attacks the Turtles very personally (trying to murder April and take control of Splinter), and tries to make Splinter give up his humanity via MindRape. It says something that he's so far the only character besides the Shredder that Splinter has outright tried to kill.]]
* MadScientist[=/=]EvilGenius: Whenever he appears [[spoiler: though more mad than usual after becoming the "Rat King".]]
* MindRape: [[spoiler: Does this to Splinter while trying to take over his mind.]]
* MindControl: [[spoiler:He develops the power to control rats, which leads him to become the Rat King.]]
* MisanthropeSupreme: [[spoiler: As the Rat King, he decides that HumansAreTheRealMonsters and plans to drive them out of New York for good.]]
* PetsHomageName: [[spoiler: The Rat King names all of his rats after famous Greeks and Romans--such as Caligula for his giant rat steed and Aristotle for his seeing eye rat]].
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: His eyes become bloodshot after he injects himself with the psychic neuro-chemical. [[spoiler: After his transformation into the "Rat King" the few times you see his eyes show that they have turned into a more BodyHorror like example of these, as seen on the NightmareFuel page.]]
* SaiGuy: He briefly uses one of Raphael's sais in his first appearance.
* ScaryTeeth: [[spoiler: His teeth are noticeably deformed from the explosion and presumably a lack of hygiene.]]
* SeeingThroughAnothersEyes: [[spoiler:He is completely blind as The Rat King, and is forced to see through the eyes of other rats. Splinter exploits this weakness in "Of Rats and Men", where he gets rid of Aristotle, the Rat that's always on the Rat King's shoulders, and then blindfolds himself, rendering the Rat King entirely blind.]]
* SmugSnake: In his first appearance only. He exchanges his ego for [[StrawNihilist nihilism]] and a KnightOfCerebus position during his second appearance making him a far greater threat.
* ThemeNaming: [[spoiler:He seems to have taken to naming his rats after famous Greeks/Romans, his steed being Caligula and his seeing eye rat being Aristotle.]]
* VillainousBreakdown: [[spoiler:He loses his composure after his plan to mutate the world's populace fails, which goes further down the drain as he loses Aristotle, the one Rat who helped him see in his fight with Splinter, and then Splinter reveals he took his blindfolds, forcing the Rat King to stumble around (in his view) in the dark, which makes him start yelling at Splinter, and eventually just trying to hurt him before falling off a cliff.]]
* VillainExitStageLeft: He's pretty good at getting away quickly after losing.
* WalkingSpoiler: Just look at all these blank spaces.
* WeakButSkilled: He isn't stronger than a human being physically, but his powers are dangerous enough to make up for it. On the other hand, he uses them as a crutch and is easily defeated when he is unable to rely on them.

!! Justin
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justintmnt_9918.png]]
A monster made by the accidental fusing of different samples of animal DNA.
* AllYourPowersCombined: It has abilities taken from various animals, including an octopus, an electric eel, and a cobra.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: In addition to the all of the above, it inherited a cat's meowing.
* BadassAdorable: ''Just look at those eyes''. The cat meow also helps in this respect.
* CombatTentacles: From his octopus DNA.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: The thing was created by Karai when she caused all of the Kraang's harvested DNA to fuse into one monster.
* CurbStompBattle: To the turtles and the Kraang before Leo's finally able to take it down.
* FluffyTheTerrible[=/=]OddNameOut: It was given the name "Justin" because Mikey couldn't think of a better or more fitting name to give it.
* OurMonstersAreWeird: Just look at him.
* ShockAndAwe: Its ''eyes'' are electrified!
* VillainExitStageLeft: After Leo electrocutes it.

!! Spy-Roach

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Spy_Roach_Molted_2129.png]]
A mutant cockroach with a vendetta against Raphael.

* AllThereInTheScript: Apparently, its name in production materials is '''Chong''', even though it's not yet been mentioned in the show.
* BaldOfEvil: By virtue of being a hairless insect.
* BodyHorror: The mechanical stuff on the roach before it mutated was just that: Stuff on the roach. When it mutated, the machinery ''merged into it'', and you can frequently see veins in its buzzsaws and first person view shots. Not to mention that after it molts, it looks like a giant maggot with limbs and robotic wings.
* BlackEyesOfEvil: By virtue of being a roach.
* CreateYourOwnVillain: Spy-Roach's hatred of Raphael was born out of Raphael's attempts to kill it when it was a normal roach.
* CurbStompBattle: Fights with it tend to end this way.
* {{Cyborg}}: Its mutation causes the technology Donatello outfitted it with to merge with it.
* {{Determinator}}[=/=]TheUnfettered: This is one determined bug.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[RememberTheNewGuy Scumbug]] from the '87 episode "Night of the Rogues", even if the only similarity is that they're both mutated roaches.
* {{Flight}}: After molting.
* FromASingleCell: [[spoiler: At the end of the episode, he apparently begins to regenerate from his liquified remains.]]
* FromNobodyToNightmare: From a normal cockroach to a dangerous mutant.
* ImplacableMan: Like most Roaches.
* InstantExpert: It acquires a Kraang raygun and uses it against the Turtles with ease.
* LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: Raphael finally destroys it by directing the Kraang's laser-drill at it, which causes it to [[{{Squick}} explode in a shower of slime.]] This doesn't destroy it for good though.]]
* NighInvulnerability[=/=]NoSell: As Donatello explicitly points out in the episode, cockroaches are a deceptively durable species. Spy-Roach's mutation just took it UpToEleven. In the episode, he shrugs off laser blasts, getting run over by the Shellraiser and Raph's bike, and getting pelted by manhole covers.
* NotQuiteDead: [[spoiler: Well Roaches are pretty hard to kill.]]
* OneWingedAngel: After molting, it becomes bigger, stronger, and capable of {{Flight}}
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The spy-camera it wears over one eye has a red lens.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Against Raphael
* WeaksauceWeakness: Despite Spy-Roach's enhanced toughness brought upon by his mutation, he is still vulnerable to a common spray can of insecticide. [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] since he's still a roach in the same way the Turtles [[Recap/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2012S1E17TCRI can hold their breath for a significant duration of time]].
* WingedHumanoid: After molting.

!! The Parasitic Wasp
[[quoteright:146:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wasp-w145-h275_1138.png]]
A mutant Wasp that is the result of a Kraang Mutagen experiment GoneHorriblyWrong. It winds up infecting Leonardo with a mind-controlling stinger [[spoiler: who then passes it on to Raphael and Donatello, with all three becoming guards to the wasp's egg]]

* {{Badass}}: It took the Turtles a while to take it down and in fact it only finally lost because [[spoiler: because it used its stinger, which killed it.]]
* BadassCrew: [[spoiler: Likewise, the three offspring are also quite dangerous, managing to damage Donatello's bo staff and disarm Raph and Leo of one of their weapons each. They are only destroyed by Michelangelo using the Shellraiser's cannon]]
* BewareMyStingerTail: Since it is a wasp this is a literal example and the fact that [[spoiler: it renders its victims as mindless slaves to protect its offspring until the offspring can eat them]] doesn't help.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: The Wasp does this to Leonardo via its stinger.
* {{Flight}}: Mutant wasp after all.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: From the mother to its babies.]]
** [[spoiler: And in the episode "Metalhead Rewired", the lone parasitic wasp is the only mutant who is unable to escape from the Kraang, and is last seen falling down to the floor from a very high altitude after the portal closes before it can go through.]]
* LudicrousGibs: [[spoiler: Much like Spy-Roach, the three Parasitica Wasps are destroyed in such a manner that causes them to explode in a shower of slime. Unlike Spy-Roach though, their deaths seem to be actual]].
* MonochromaticEyes: Like most wasps.
* SelfDisposingVillain: [[spoiler: A variant. The original Wasp kills itself when it uses its stinger, which yanks it's heart out (as is the case when real bees and wasps sting a person)]].
* TrulySingleParent[=/=]MonsterProgenitor: It managed to lay a fertile egg all by itself, [[spoiler: turned the turtles into zombies]], and successfully because a post-mortem [[spoiler: parent of quadruplets.]]
* TheVoiceless: Unlike other mutants (including the turtles themselves), the Parasitica Wasp does not talk, only buzz. [[spoiler: This extends to it's spawn]].

[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/newtra-w145-h275_5227.png]]
A mutant Newt who hunts Donatello and April's Father.

* AscendedFanfic: Ciro Nieli created the character when he was in elementary school, and now gets to use the character in the show.
* {{Badass}}: Certainly gives off the image of one.
** BadassInDistress: He's among the captives of the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired".
* TheBrute: More so than most brutes in this series since he is solo, doesn't talk at first, is scarily effective and is seen ''eating a Kraang alive''.
* TheCameo: See BadassInDistress.
* CreepySouvenir: He has what seem to be Kraang tentacles hanging from his belt.
* DarkIsEvil: His skin is black save for orange spots on his chest.
* TheDreaded: The Kraang appear to be afraid of him, and for good reason; he ''eats them''. '''ALIVE'''.
* EnemyMine: Pulls one with the Turtles and the other mutants to escape the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired."
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: His first scene shows him swiftly taking out several Kraang and then eats one of them.
* EvilCounterpart: Manages to be this to Slash, Raphael's own EvilCounterpart. "Newtralized!" establishes that they both share an immense hatred of the Kraang, due to both ending up subject to their cruelty, but the difference is that Slash abhors killing civilians while Newtralizer is completely willing to go through with that type of thing, and maybe even throw his partner away in the process. [[spoiler:So much so, this leads Slash to team up with the Turtles and it ends with them on better terms.]]
** He's one to Leatherhead as well. Both are animals mutated by the Kraang and desire revenge. However, unlike Leatherhead, Newtralizer doesn't care about Earth or it's inhabitants.
* EvilVsEvil: He fights the Kraang, but it's mostly for revenge and beyond that, he's not very heroic, not caring about any innocent people that may get caught in the crossfire.
* {{Expy}}: Borrows the basic design from many 90s Comic Book characters, though his methods of hunting people down are rather [[{{Film/Predator}} predatory]].
* FashionableAsymmetry: One of his shoulder pads is bigger than the other.
* ICallItVera: The concept art refers to his shoulder-mounted missile launcher as "Brother Love".
* KnightTemplar: Wants to get rid of the Kraang through any means, even if those means result in innocents getting killed. [[spoiler:This is a large part of what ends his team-up with Slash.]]
* PerpetualFrowner: He is a very serious threat in more ways than one.
* ProfessionalKiller: According to the concept art, he's an assassin from Dimension X.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery section of the new season 2 opening.
* SeldomSeenSpecies: Probably the first Fire-Bellied Newt to appear in a cartoon.
* SpannerInTheWorks: [[spoiler: Nearly derails the Shredder's BatmanGambit by attacking the turtles, since it required them to take Kirby back to their lair.]]
* ShouldersOfDoom: One of his shoulder pads is pretty big.
* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: The spot pattern on his belly and chest resemble a skull.
* TranslatorMicrobes: Uses a device to translate his speech, as English is not his native language.
* VerbalTic: "Rocka rocka rocka".
* WalkingArmory: He seems to have a few different weapons on him.
* WholeCostumeReference: His outfit design is similar to Cable's classic X-Force costume, as well as ThePunisher.
* TheVoiceless: Never gets any actual lines in his debut episode; "Newtralized" changes this.

!! Squirrelanoids
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aaah-w145-h275_5960.jpg]]
A pack of mutant squirrels created when a squirrel found a mutagen container that the turtles dropped from the Kraang ship. They are able to self duplicate and evolve into a more dangerous form.

* BodyHorror: The squirrels' tongues flail around outside of their mouths and they multiply inside a living organism's stomach.
* {{Expy}}: See ShoutOut.
* KillerRabbit: At first glance they look like normal squirrels, but eventually turn into horrific monsters.
* {{Metamorphosis}}: From squirrels to mutant squirrels to more dangerous ''Film/{{Alien}}'' expies.
* OrificeInvasion: The Squirrelanoids reproduce by forcing themselves down a living being's throat, splitting into two inside the stomach, then forcing their way back out through the mouth.
* ShoutOut: They look like lower-rated versions of the alien from ''Film/{{Alien}}''.
** This makes them look similar to the Pizza Monsters from the 87 series and Turtles in Time game.

!! Slash
-> Voiced by Corey Feldman.
[[quoteright:145:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/slash_766.jpg]]

A new mutant ninja turtle with a vendetta against Raphael's brothers and tries to become his new "partner".
* AntiVillain: Established in "Newtralized!" when he refuses to kill humans in order to defeat the Kraang.
* AxeCrazy: While normally similar to Raph on a good day pressing his BerserkButton reveals the monster underneath.
* {{Badass}}: He effortlessly curbstomps the turtles in rather unfamily friendly manner and in a straight fight he's better than Leo or Raph.
* BattleTrophy: He takes Mikey and Donnie's bandannas after beating them down and wears them as arm bands on his right arm, until Raph takes them back.
* BerserkButton: Being called a monster or being rejected by Raph makes him drop his MaskOfSanity.
* TheBerserker: While he's normally a pragmatic, effiecent, and intelligent fighter pressing his BerserkButton makes him go feral.
* BloodKnight: To an extreme degree, he makes Raph seem soft.
* CarryABigStick: A GIGANTIC mace is his WeaponOfChoice.
* ClassicVillain: Represents Pride, Envy, Wrath, and Lust.
* CombatPragmatist: Totally avoids a direct fight with two Turtles, instead sneaking up on or misdirecting them.
* CurbStompBattle: Delivers one to the turtles and arguably does a better job than '''[[BigBad Shredder]]'''.
* DarkIsEvil: Slash is [[{{Motif}} heavily associated with shadows]] - he mutates in the dark with the only light being the glow from the mutagen, the shadow of his fangs and spikes are often framed in shots, his ability to somehow mimic Leonardo's silhouette despite the DivergentCharacterEvolution below etc.
* DivergentCharacterEvolution: Like the Turtles, Slash has undergone a design overhaul to make him more unique: He is much, ''much'' larger than any previous incarnation, has spikes protruding from his body instead of wearing protective plating (though the spikes seen in the shell are still prominent), and instead of the katana he usually is seen with, has a large mace. He's also the smartest incarnation of the character to date.
* EnemyMine: He helps fight the Kraang in "Metalhead Rewired" so he, the Turtles, and the other imprisoned mutants can escape.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Slash may have a questionable morality, but he still wants to defeat the Kraang and save the human race.
* EvilIsBigger: Slash is the evil version of the turtles and he towers over them.
* EvilCounterpart: His vices match Raphael almost to a tee (jealousy regarding the brothers, takes great pride in his sheer ferocity, and has a fairly bad temper), and a fighting style that is a lot like Raphael's aggressive fighting style. Unlike Raphael, he doesn't put his vices aside for anyone and doesn't even bother to tone down his aggression. [[spoiler:Seems to have grown out of it by "Newtralized!" where he leaves Raphael and his brothers on far warmer terms than they started out.]]
* EvilFormerFriend: Raph initially treats him like a SixthRanger. When Michelangelo meets him he might have done the same until Slash immediately beat him to a pulp right in front of Raph's face. Raph changes his mind about the SixthRanger thing pretty quick. [[MoralityPet Still the two acknowledge and defend each other.]]
* GeniusBruiser: When he wears his MaskOfSanity he outsmarts the turtles as easily as he beats the crap out of them.
* GutturalGrowler: Speaks with a rather deep, graveling voice.
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: As ruthless as he is, he won't kill innocents. This and a series of other events has him ally with the turtles against Newtralizer and rethink his position a bit.]]
* HeroOfAnotherStory: "Metalhead Rewired" and "Newtralized!" show him as captured by the Kraang, and the latter implies a few adventures with Newtralizer in fighting the Kraang.
* InASingleBound: In "Metalhead Rewired", he ''jumps several stories high'' in a Kraang base as he escapes.
* InstantExpert: Having watched the Turtles train or not, the amount of skill he shows at both battle and stealth within just a few hours of mutating is insane.
* KnightOfCerebus: Barring a few taunts, he's not at all funny, and the beatings he gives the turtles show more visible injuries than previous fights in the series.
* LightningBruiser: You'd think with Slash's incredibly large size that he would be at [[MightyGlacier a severe disadvantage regarding his speed.]] You'd be wrong.
** And not only is he very fast and agile, he's just as good at ninja stealth as the other turtles are.
* MaskOfSanity: He appears to be a smart, loyal, hardworking ninja who understands Raphael's position and his problems with his brothers. Too bad his mind is too twisted to understand things like how no matter how frustrating families can be that doesn't mean things would be better if they weren't around, there are more important things in life than being strong, or that caring for others isn't a weakness.
* MightyRoar: His BattleCry is very impressive.
* MythologyGag: [[spoiler: He learned ninjutsu by observing Raph (and likely the other turtles) train during his years as a pet. Just like the original Mirage Splinter did from ''his'' master.]]
** He also wears an initialed belt buckle, much like the 80's turtles.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: He delivers what may well be the most brutal beating the turtles have received to date in this show. We got bruises, scratches, swollen eyes, Donnie needing help to walk and a splint on his arm.
** To really drive home how much this trope applies, when one sees the turtles' first fight with Shredder, he beat them pretty badly too, but they were still okay enough to run away when Shredder became momentarily distracted. Slash beat them up so brutally that Donnie and Mikey were too injured for the group to properly flee from him, and the main reason they actually manage to survive their fight with him was because Slash accidentally fell off of that building's roof.
* NonIndicativeName: Normally Slash is portrayed with swords, here his WeaponOfChoice is a spiked mace, a bludgeoning weapon [[spoiler: that actually matches his original name more.]]
* PetTheDog: In "Metalhead Rewired", despite being on bad terms with Raphael, saves his life when he could have just escaped and not bothered with Raph.
* PromotionToOpeningTitles: Appears in the RoguesGallery crawl in "The Manhattan Project".
* {{Sadist}}: It's clear that he is far more powerful than the other Turtles, [[JustHitHim but doesn't actually kill them even though he most likely can]]. Given his comment on how long he's wanted to hurt Leonardo, it's possible that he's actually prolonging their deaths as long as he can just because he's ''enjoying'' beating the crap out of Raphael's brothers.
* ShadowArchetype: He's Raph's shadow. Basically he could be considered the personification of all of Raphael's hatred, rage, and love of combat unfettered by his redeeming qualities and love for his brothers.
* SpikesOfVillainy: He has spikes growing out of his arms, shoulders, head, and shell...[[spoiler: maybe he should have kept his old name, it's more fitting]].
* VoiceChangeling: At one point, he mimics Leonardo's voice perfectly to ambush Michelangelo. It hasn't been explained if it's one of Slash's mutant powers or if Slash can naturally do that.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Zig zagged. As a good guy, he has yet to do anything a normal person would consider heroic, but as a villain, he hasn't done anything malicious other than defeating the turtles which he thought was a good thing since Raph gave him the idea that the other turtles were lazy morons. In "Newtralized", he fights the Kraang alongside the [[KnightTemplar Newtralizer]]. [[spoiler:Ultimately, he takes issue with the Newtralizer's callous attitude toward hurting innocents and turns on him.]]
* WolverineClaws: Nasty yellow nails.

!!Pizza Face
->Voiced by Creator/JohnDiMaggio

* AscendedExtra: Pizza Face was originally just an action figure for the '87 series. In-universe, he was featured on various pizza boxes in season 1, before becoming a mutant.
* AppropriatedAppellation: Gets his name from Mikey.
-->'''Michelangelo:''' The jig is up, Pizza Face!
-->'''Pizza Face:''' Pizza Face? I like-a that! 'Cause I have a pizza for a face!
* HiveQueen: His living pizzas follow him loyally.
* ImAHumanitarian: His plan is to turn his hypnotized customers into calzones and eat them.
* InSovietRussiaTropeMocksYou: Mikey describes Pizza Face as "pizza that eats ''you''".
* MookMaker: Can create living pizza servants.
* SanitySlippage: Considering he ate a mysterious substance that fell from the sky assuming it was a gift from the heavens, it's quite likely he was already a little crazy, but after mutating he's become completely insane.
* TooDumbToLive: Ate mutagen that fell from the sky in a strange container thinking it might make a good pizza topping.
* WasOnceAMan: He used to be a human pizza maker named Antonio.

A Russian Arms dealer who appears briefly in "Enemy of My Enemy". Makes an EarlyBirdCameo as an arms dealer for the Shredder, but is later shown plotting to steal Shredder's helmet and unaffiliated with the Foot.

* BenevolentBoss: Compared to his [[AxCrazy 2003 incarnation]] he's this though, seeing as how even after his minions have failed him repeatedly, he still hasn't killed them yet. He did however push the button on Baxter Stockman turning him into a mutant for his repeated failures.



* {{Leitmotif}}: Somewhat irregular, but a particular clip of music is used whenever he appears, the music in question sounding morose at first, but becomes more threatening very quickly.

* LighterAndSofter: While he shares
a particular clip lot in common with his 2003 incarnation, such as his AxCrazy personality, he is far less punishing and cruel, generally letting his minions live without much of music is used whenever he appears, the music a scratch on them. Although Season 2 and certain events, such as his near-complete lack of hesitance in question sounding morose at first, but becomes more threatening very quickly.mutating of Baxter Stockman and [[spoiler:Karai learning who her father actually is]] are starting to change this.
