  • Berserk Button: Raphael doesn't take well to Hun stealing his motorcycle, as well as it getting destroyed.
  • Big "NO!": Stockman, just as he's about to be punished by the Shredder off-screen for the unauthorized communication using Hun's voice.
  • Didn't See That Coming: After suspecting that Hun isn't after them at all, the Turtles get covert and follow him down to the subway.
    Leo: Karai?
    Mikey: Bishop?
  • Enemy Mine/ Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Hun must save Karai from Bishop, even though he despises her. In addition, the Turtles must help Hun to rescue Karai.
  • Evil vs. Evil: Hun vs. Bishop.
  • Honor Before Reason: Raph would prefer to just let Hun and Bishop take each other out, but Leo says they must intervene to help Karai.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Agent Bishop uses his tie to fight Hun and the Turtles. He is basically of the "beat you down with anything handy" school of fighting.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: Bishop initially only toyed with Hun, and it got him a good throttling.
    "All right, meathead, you wanna play?! Now, we play for real!"
  • Narrator: Hun's first time.
  • One-Man Army: Bishop, again. He takes on all four Turtles, Hun and Karai and more than holds his own. After nearly getting skewered, however, he leaves rather than push his luck further.

  • The Scream: Raph, when his Shell Cycle is destroyed.

  • Villain Episode: This is about Hun.
  • Villain Exit Stage Left: Bishop escapes by detaching the train from the cars behind it.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: While Bishop tells Saki how much he knows about his criminal empire and ulterior motives regarding cleaning up after the Triceraton invasion, he's completely unaware that the Oroku Saki persona is a cover for something much, much bigger than he knows. note 
    Saki: Believe me, Mister Bishop, you know nothing about me.
  • You Owe Me: Raphael say this to Hun about his motorcycle.
    Raphael: You owe me a new bike, fatso!
