This episode provides examples of:

  • Big Damn Heroes: Raphael (with some help from Master Splinter).
  • Changed My Mind, Kid: When Raph returns to help his brothers
  • Deal with the Devil: Leo even likened his alliance with Karai as this.
  • Enemy Civil War: the Foot Clan, the Purple Dragons and the Mob battle for control of New York following the Shredder's disappearance.
  • Enemy Mine: The turtles and Casey team up with Karai to end the war between the Foot Ninjas, Purple Dragons and Mob

  • Mle Trois: between the Foot, The mob, and the Dragons.
  • Mob War
  • Pet the Dog: Saki's adoption of Karai. Even if he may have ulterior motives for raising her, it's very nice to even think about that little flashback.

  • Sword over Head: Karai does this to one of the defeated Foot Elite.
  • The Reveal: Right at the end we see that the Shredder is still alive.
