* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: After [[spoiler:taking over the Foot, starting with his killing Shredder. Mikey calls him out on it, declaring that Splinter is turning into everything that he taught the Turtles to fight against]].

* BecameTheirOwnAntithesis: After [[spoiler:taking over the Foot, starting with his killing Shredder.Shredder; starting out as a MartialPacifist who [[ThouShaltNotKill refuses to kill no matter what]], Splinter begins SlowlySlippingIntoEvil and making increasingly questionable and ruthless decisions, climaxing when he plans to turn orphans into {{Child Soldier}}s into the Foot. Mikey calls him out on it, declaring that Splinter is turning into everything that he taught the Turtles to fight against]].

Added DiffLines:

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: It's somewhat subtle, but it seems that [[spoiler:the realization that he beat the hell out of his son because Michelangelo didn't want to see orphans turned into child soldiers was what it took to bring Splinter back from the dark path he was headed down. He firmly refuses to see them turned into future Foot ninja after that, even when Karai named it as a mandatory condition for the initially peaceful transfer of leadership from him to her later on.]]


* SoulPower: Has slowly become the best of the four turtles at tapping into the spirit realm.

* SoulPower: Has slowly become the best of the four turtles at tapping into the spirit realm. In the 20/20 one shot (which takes place in a possible future 20 years from the present), he is able to phase out of reality, essentially gaining the ability to teleport wherever he wants.

Added DiffLines:

* CloudCuckoolander: In the 20/20 oneshot (which is not exactly canon), years of stress have caused him to step down from leading Clan Hamato. Said stress also caused him to withdraw into himself and spend a lot of time meditating. The upside of this? He essentially gained the ability to phase in and out of reality, essentially the ability to warp. The downside of this is that he's also not quite...there anymore. He isn't very emotive and he tends to avoid interacting with the others.

Added DiffLines:

** During the Ghostbusters crossover, he initially can't bring himself to believe that they are dealing with a ghost despite already grudgingly accepting that they themselves are the reincarnations of an ancient Japanese family.

Added DiffLines:

* BrainwashedAndCrazy: [[spoiler:He is kidnapped by the Foot and brainwashed into being a loyal warrior of the Shredder's. The brainwashing doesn't fully take though, as Karai notes when they have a fight that Leonardo seems to be holding back, which later is shown to be a sign that he is FightingFromTheInside to break free of the mind control.]]

Added DiffLines:

* GoodIsNotSoft: He is generally a very kind and calm man, but in his previous life he had an anger streak to rival or surpass Raphael's, and it still flares up from time to time under stress, though he usually has it tamed. And despite heavily ingraining in his children that they should not kill, when he is led to believe [[spoiler:that Leonardo is dead, he immediately attempts to kill the Shredder on the spot.]]

Added DiffLines:

* UndyingLoyalty: Out of the four brothers, he is the most loyal and dedicated to Splinter. While the others love Splinter, they aren't as blindly dedicated to him, as seen in the first issue where Michelangelo and Donatello are ready to stop looking for Raphael, believing Splinter to simply be in denial about Raphael being dead, Leonardo wishes to stick to Splinter's orders no matter what. [[spoiler:Later in the story, the other brothers are abandon Splinter because of his increasingly amoral actions, Leonardo is the last to defect, and only does so after Splinter explicitly tells him to do so.]]

Added DiffLines:

* RelatedInTheAdaptation: Splinter is always the one who raises the turtles into becoming who they are, but usually it is from a very master/student perspective, with the turtles always referring to him as "Master Splinter". Here, the turtles explicitly call Splinter "father", which is just as well as in their past lives, he ''was'' their father.


* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]] [[spoiler:Gives up his life in issue 100 to prevent the resurrection of Kitsune's father, the Dragon.]]

* HeroicFatigue: He has recently become overwhelmed with all the enemies and life threatening situations he and brothers constantly face. He wanted the Turtles stay out of Bishop's invasion of Burnow Island and he wanted to leave the city when Karai and Splinter went to war for control of the Foot clan.

Added DiffLines:

* IHatePastMe: He dislikes his previous life as Hamato Yoshi, who was a proud, temperamental JerkWithAHeartOfGold who [[BreakTheHaughty suffered greatly for his arrogance]]. Upon his reincarnation and mutation, Splinter saw it as a second chance to be a better person.


* DarkAndTroubledPast: She ran away from an abusive home and fell in with a criminal boyfriend who made her help him rob stores. She was eventually arrested and befriended imprisoned Foot soldier. The two created a plan to escape prison, only for another escaping criminal to kill her friend while they were making their getaway. Jennika eventually managed to find and join the Foot Clan herself and she later hunts down and kills her friend's murderer.

* HesBack: At the end of Issue 31, when [spoiler: Koya has ambushed the turtles at the O'Neil farm, Leonardo comes out of nowhere to face her, once again donning his trademark blue eyemask]]. Mikey even gets to acknowledge the trope at the beginning of the following issue.
