Recap / Teenange Mutant Ninja Turtles 2003 S 5 E 13 Enter The Dragons Part 2

The final battle has arrived. Now the Turtles must fight the Tengu Shredder for the sake of the world.


This episode provides examples of

  • Adult Fear: Splinter fears his nightmare has come true and that he's outlived his sons.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Chaplin is positively ecstatic to again be working with Stockman.
    "You and I are a team again! Isn't it just so awesome?"
  • Call Back: The Ninja Tribunal notes that Yoshi had to die in order for the Turtles and Splinter to be who they are—an idea previously broached in "Reflections" and "Tale of Master Yoshi".
  • Continuity Nod: Hamato Yoshi was slain in a single stroke by the Utrom Shredder many years before the series began. Now a mystical version of Hamato Yoshi slays the Demon Shredder in a single strike
  • Death Seeker: Stockman is shown to be this when Bishop puts him back online, much to his chagrin.
    Stockman: Why couldn't you let me rest in peace?
  • Defiant to the End: The Tengu Shredder.
  • Faking the Dead: After the fight's over, the Ninja Tribunal reveal they did this.
  • Final Battle
  • Finishing Move
  • From Bad to Worse: Splinter finds four of the Acolytes presumably dead. Then he sees the Turtles lying on the ground.
  • Guns Akimbo: Agent Bishop when he's fighting the Tengu Shredder's army
  • Hellish Horse: The Tengu Shredder's mount
  • Holding Hands: Karai does this to Chaplin at the end.
  • Hooked Up Afterwards: Karai and Chaplin
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: A mystic version of Hamato Yoshi finishes the Tengu Shredder off this way
  • Me's a Crowd: Nano, in his Justice Force form, is shown to do this
  • Omniscient Morality License: The immortal Ninja Tribunal gets away with allowing everything that had transpired thus far throughout the series to occur, because according to them, it all had to happen that way for the demon Shredder to be killed.
  • One-Winged Angel: The Tengu Shredder's dragon form. The Turtles' Dragon forms may also apply.
  • Percussive Maintenance: Bishop temporarily restores Stockman's shorting systems with a kick
  • Pre-Mortem One-Liner: "This, demon, is your very last breath."

  • Rearing Horse: The Tengu Shredder does this on his Hellish Horse after he attacks the Acolytes and the Ancient One
  • Series Fauxnale: Originally, this episode was supposed to be the conclusion of the series—wrapping out the most outstanding plots, while leaving room to continue. There were two more seasons and a feature-length movie.
  • Single Tear: Master Splinter, when the mystical version of Hamato Yoshi acknowledges him
  • So Proud of You: The Ninja Tribunal congratulate their Acolytes on their victory.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Hun ended up in a room full of treasure. He prefers to stay with it during the big fight, but it soon disappears as everything returns to normal.
    "Aw, crud."
