     Cody Jones 
Voiced by: Christopher C. Adams

Casey and April's great-grandson and heir to both O'Neil Tech and the Jones fortune.

Voiced by: Marc Thompson

Cody's robotic caretaker, who only barely tolerates the turtles.

  • Arm Cannon: As Turtle X Mark II
  • Backto Back Badasses: With Splinter in "Bad Blood".
  • Badass Boast: During the Darkest Hour of Dunn's attack in "Turtle X-tinction."
    Serling: It will be a cold day in Hades before I allow you [Cody] to come to harm!
  • Battle Butler: He was no slouch in fighting beforehand, but becomes the new Turtle X armor late into the sixth season.
  • Berserk Button: Messing with Cody. Dun learned this the hard way.
  • Character Development: Eventually stops being so uptight and learns to be more flexible, and forges a strong friendship with the Turtles, and comes to terms with the fact he can't protect Cody from everything.
  • Disney Death: See Heroic Sacrifice.
  • Fish out of Temporal Water: In the seventh season. He ends up being sent back into the 21st century by Viral, and doesn't entirely enjoy the experience, though Word of God says he ended up thinking his stay was worth it when he got to witness the wedding of Casey and April.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Pulls one in "Turtle X-Tinction".
  • Mini-Mecha: As Turtle X Mark II
  • Odd Friendship: With Splinter, the only member of the 2000's cast who doesn't harass or mock him.
  • Robot Butler
  • Take a Third Option: Initially he would prefer that Cody never see combat, but after Dunn goes rogue, Serling becomes the Turtle-X Mark II so Cody can still go into battle, but Serling can still protect him as well.
  • Transforming Mecha: As Turtle X Mark II
  • True Companions: He may dislike the Turtles, but he gets along very well with Master Splinter, and later Donatello.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Cody, becoming Turtle X Mark II to better protect him.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: At the end of the series, he's still in the present day, but is nowhere to be seen in Turtles Forever.

     Darius Dun
Voiced by: David Zen Mansley

Cody's uncle and legal guardian, he uses his position as the C.E.O. of O'Neil Tech to facilitate various shady dealings.

  • Bad Boss: He's downright abusive to the Dark Turtles, viewing them as savages and often berates them for failing him.
  • Berserk Button: Cody says he hates being called "fatty."
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: With Sh'Okanabo for the sixth season.
  • Canon Immigrant: He is introduced into the IDW comics, a whopping decade after his debut in Fast Forward.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Runs a weapons cartel under Cody's nose and deals with criminals like Boss Zuko.
  • Evil Uncle: Only using his nephew for his own monetary gain.
  • Fat Bastard: He's gigantic and obese, likely from a lifetime of nothing but a fat salary and lavish treatment, and is very much a villainous bastard.
  • High-Class Glass: Wears a monocle.
  • Illegal Guardian: He's Cody's legal guardian, but he's a dangerous criminal.
  • Knight of Cerebus: By virtue of being Cody's Evil Uncle, he has a far more personal effect on the heroes when he finally does get outed and nearly kills Cody and Serling.
  • Manipulative Bastard: As Cody is too young to understand how the company works, he basically can get whatever he wants done if he explains it to Cody in simple terms. He also plays his nephew and the police like a fiddle.
  • Motion Capture Mecha: As of "DNA is Thicker than Water", he is able to control his suit without wearing it.
  • Parental Substitute: Is Cody's main figure of authority until he goes rogue.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes, his name is spelled "Darius Dunn".
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: One of Serling's home movies was of him affably ruffling a younger Cody's hair, implying at some point in the past he actually was a good uncle to him.
  • Villain with Good Publicity: He starts out this way at the beginning of his arc.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Thanks to the Aborted Arc of the Fast Forward season, his final fate was never revealed.
  • You Monster!: Splinter is repulsed by him.
    Splinter: I have met many monsters in my time, Dunn, but it takes a special breed to direct such bile and hatred against a child!

Voiced by: Sean Schemmel

An alien invader who has determined that Earth is the ideal planet for him to spread his gene-seed.

  • Back for the Finale: After his own Time Window goes haywire, he disappears until the penultimate (though for all effects the final) episode of Fast Forward.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: With Darius Dun for Fast Forward. He forms a loose alliance with Dunn for the first half of the season.
  • The Dreaded: Sh'Okanabo has amassed a reputation as a space boogeyman, who's shrouded in myth and legend. Only this legend is all too real.
  • Enemy Mine: Briefly joins forces with the Turtles to defeat the Shredder and the Foot Clan in "Timing is Everything".
  • Expy: He shares more than a few similarities to Lord Dregg.
  • Galactic Conqueror: He's conquered countless planets before arriving to earth, infesting them with his Kanabo drones.
  • Karma Houdini: He tricked Torbin Zixx into smuggling a bomb onto a spacecraft and while Zixx did rat him out to the turtles, who in turn reported it to Bishop, Sh'Okanabo never got in trouble for almost hurting many innocent beings.
    • Karma Houdini Warranty: His luck finally runs out "Day of Awakening", where he's finally killed by the Turtles.
  • Killed Off for Real: Destroyed by a light grenade from Donnie and Raph.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Episodes that feature him as the main antagonist are far more serious with larger ramifications.
  • Light Is Good/Dark Is Evil: He looks dark and works in the shadows, is never seen walking around in daylight, if weak enough, sunlight can hurt him and he was killed by a solar grenade.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Especially in his first form.
  • Villain Team-Up: With fellow Big Bad Darius Dun in "Bad Blood".
  • The Virus: Anyone infected with his gene seeds becomes a Kanabo drone subservient to him.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: He can change his body at will, spawning tentacles or becoming a large slime monster.

     Constable Aloysius Biggles 
Voiced by: Sean Schemmel

A robot who serves as an officer of the New New York Peacekeepers and who keeps running into the turtles.

  • British Copper: In intent if not in reality.
  • Butt-Monkey: To the point that the main gag of a preview of an episode revolved around his really long fall from a skyscraper, and Michelangelo finally admits at the end of the promo that someone should probably save him. Funnily enough, in the episode proper this is not played for laughs.
  • Catchphrase: “'Allo 'Allo 'Allo. Wot's all this then?”
  • Inspector Javert: Occasionally, most notably in “Playtime's Over”
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Despite being presumably programmed for the job, he rather dislikes the paperwork it involves.

Voiced by: Eva Christensen

An A.I. who serves under Sh'Okanabo.

     Starlee Hambrath 
Voiced by: Amanda Brown

An O'Neil Tech intern and friend of Cody Jones.


Voiced by: Tom Wayland

A cyborg who runs the Street Phantoms, a New York gang.

  • Canon Immigrant: He is later introduced in the IDW comic series about a decade after "Fast Forward".
  • Compressed Hair: His hair is completely obscured by his hood despite the fact that it's several feet high.
  • Cyborg
  • Intangible Man: Like all members of the Street Phantoms, thanks to their phasing technology.
  • Slasher Smile: His default expression.
  • Smarter Than You Look: He looks like a wimpy little imp, but he's a genius who's got enough skills to poise a serious threat to the Turtles.
  • Starter Villain: He is the first villain of the "Fast Forward" season that the Turtles face, and is taken out by them. He later reappears in three more episodes.

     The Inuwashi Gunjin 
Voiced by: Brian Maillard (Leader), Sean Schemmel and Marc Thompson

A quartet of winged humanoids who serve as Darius Dun's reluctant enforcers.

  • Anti-Villains: They work for Darius Dun only because they have been implanted with electronic machines that Dun uses to torture and contain them. They kidnap Cody and threaten to kill him if Dun (who needs Cody alive) won't free them. They note the turtles' honor for repeatedly saving Cody who's little help to them (at the time). They finally decide to follow the turtles' example of honorability and give them time to escape from drowning.
  • Forced into Evil
  • Heel–Face Turn: They all pull one once they are finally freed from Dun's control.
  • Last of Their Kind
  • Proud Warrior Race Guys: Their race was once the most feared force of earth and sky.
  • Winged Humanoids
  • Worthy Opponents: As they witness the turtles saving multiple times Cody who's not much of a help in a fight, they remark that to be truly honorable.

     The Dark Turtles 
Voiced by: Michael Sinterniklaas (Dark Leo), Frank Frankson (Dark Raph), Sam Riegel (Dark Don) and Wayne Grayson (Dark Mikey)

Created by Sh'Okanabo from the turtles' genetic material, these four mutant turtles serve Darius Dun. They are all voiced by the same actors for the original turtles.

  • Big Brother Instinct: Kind of a grey area. Towards the end of "DNA Is Thicker Than Blood", Dark Leo divides up the meat among his brothers. This action is so unexpected that it sparks confusion among them.
  • Color-Coded Characters: The color of each turtles' skin more or less corresponds to their counterparts' bandanna colors.
  • Dark Is Evil: At first. They were more than eager to try destroying their original counterparts.
    • Dark Is Not Evil: They have the capacity to be better if they were given the chance.
  • Dumb Muscle: Dark Raph. He was so stupid that he couldn't pick up Mikey's sarcasm.
  • Evil Twins
  • Forced into Evil: While it doesn't occur in the same way as with their predecessors the Gunjin, the episode “D.N.A. is Thicker Than Water” implies that they have the capacity to be better turtles if it weren't for the fact that they are forced to work for Dun.
  • Geek Physiques: Dark Don is the tallest and skinniest of the quartet.
  • I'm a Humanitarian:
    Dark Raph: Let's crack your shell open and see if there's a yummy cream filling inside!
  • Laughing Mad: All of them, primarily Dark Mikey.
  • Oddball Doppelgangers
  • Off with His Head!: In their first 2 appearances, Dark Leo threatened to cut off someone's head.
    Dark Leo: *holding his sword next to Cody's neck* No sudden moves, or your friend here loses his head.
    Leonardo: How long have you been working for Dun?
    Dark Leo: Details, details, you should be paying attention to more immediate matters, like keeping your head on!
  • Psycho Rangers
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent
  • Slasher Smile / Psychotic Smirk: They at least show off one.

     Torbin Zixx 
Voiced by: David Elliot

A famed mercenary who has several run-ins with the turtles.

  • Advertised Extra: He appears in the opening titles, despite his sporadic appearances in the series.
  • Combat Pragmatist: He's an extremely dirty fighter.
  • Con Man: Almost every time he goes up against the Turtles, he swindles them.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Deliver/smuggle an illegal package for an alien? Sure. Said package turns out to be a bomb that could've potentially hurt many innocent humans and aliens? Yeah, big mistake.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Volunteers to make one in the final episode of Fast Forward to save Earth from a dark matter asteroid. It's actually his ship, which he escaped to with a device that had been jury-rigged to destroy the asteroid.
  • Karma Houdini Warranty: In his various appearances, he was always able to either escape capture or swindle the Turtles. However, in his final appearance during Zixxth Sense, the Turtles are able to finally turn the tables on him and switch the transmitter Zixx was trying to steal with a coffee machine. And once Zixx fails to deliver the transmitter to the alien crime lord he was working for, he found himself in some rather precarious crosshairs as the alien crime boss decided he had enough of Zixx and turned on him violently.
  • Wild Card / Chaotic Neutral

     Triple Threat
Voiced by: David Zen Mansley (Green Head), Marc Odgers (Red Head) and Sam Riegel (Yellow Head)

Green: "Hey sports fans, I'm back!"
Red: "And I wanna put the hurt on someone!"
Yellow: [laughing] "Hurt, dirt, shirt, draft!"
Headlock Prime

A pro-wrestler turned criminal who sports three heads, each with its own personality.

  • Cloud Cuckoo Lander: The yellow-skinned, rightmost head.
  • Color-Coded Characters: Each head is colored differently: red for the violent head, blue for the calculating head, and yellow for the clouduckoolander head.
  • Cyclops: "Green" is the only uni-eyed head among them.
  • Genius Bruiser: The green, middle head is considered the brains of their plans.
  • The Giant: Keeping with his wrestling theme, he's the largest known wrestler.
  • Multiple Head Case: Triple Threat has three heads sharing one behemoth sized wrestler body.
  • Not So Above It All: Despite being considered the rational head out of the three, "Green" does seem to enjoy partaking some mindless fighting if they align with their overall plan.
  • Red Is Violent: "Red" tends to be the most gung-ho about charging into a fight, along with instigating new ones.
  • Wrestler in All of Us: Considering their pro-wrestling background, a lot of their throws and holds, consist of brutally familiar wrestling maneuvers.
  • Wrestling Monster: A more literal example. His debut episode, "Headlock Prime", has him hijacking Madison Square Garden's latest wrestling event to take revenge against modern wrestling, adopting his own Heel persona to beat down current wrestlers unequipped to handle unscripted violence.
