The second animated series starring Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird's characters, produced by [[FourKidsEntertainment 4Kids Entertainment]] under the direction of Lloyd Goldfine, with supervision by Laird and additional funding and input by toymaker Playmates. Often nicknamed "TMNT 2k3" by fans, and designed to be more faithful to the [[Comicbook/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesMirage original comic book]] and more serious than the [[WesternAnimation/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles1987 previous cartoon]], it translated most of the original's storylines faithfully, [[InternalHomage often directly recreating issues as episodes,]] while creating its own additions to the TMNT mythos.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Leonardo is faced with this situation during the Ninja Tribunal Arc where he was the only Turtle who failed to get a mystic weapon from the forge. There was the possibility that because he was having the most difficulty with the Ninja Tribunal's tests, he lacked the confidence and faith to be worthy of earning himself a mystical weapon. However, it should be noted that in the past, he had his swords broken and subsequently repaired in the forges of the Battle Nexus, another place of great mystical power. Therefore, it was equally possible that the real reason he didn't get new weapons from the Ninja Tribunal's forge was because ''his two swords were already imbued with mystical power from the Battle Nexus''.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: Leonardo is faced with a variation of this situation during the Ninja Tribunal Arc Arc, a storyline that was already filled to the brim with actual magic, where he was the only Turtle who failed to get a mystic weapon from the forge.

** The Garbageman was going to have a third appearance in season 5, but it didn't happen due to 4Kids deeming the premise(Garbageman and Hun being conjoined twins separated at birth by a back-alley surgeon) too disturbing.
