Recap / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 SE 4 The Engagement Ring

Casey has finally decided to propose to April, and enlists Raph's help in looking for an engagement ring—in the process, a strange old man gives Casey a mysterious ring. Initially delighted, Casey soon comes to regret putting the ring on April's finger when she starts acting strangely and attacking anything that moves.

  • Clothes Make the Maniac: The Ring of Yin
  • Evil Makes You Monstrous/ Power-Upgrading Deformation: April's demon form. Thankfully it doesn't last

  • One-Winged Angel: April's demon form may apply
  • Power Glows: The Ring of Yin

  • Temporarily a Villain: April, thanks to the Ring of Yin
  • That Came Out Wrong: Casey's marriage proposal to April;
    Casey: April, I love you like... like Gretzky loves hockey, and I wanna play you for the rest of my life...- Dah! I mean your life! I-I mean Gretsky's life! - I mean-
  • Voice of the Legion: April when she's wearing the Ring of Yin
  • With This Ring: I will turn you [April] into a demon.
