The fic is set around the show's fourth season and centers around Ethan, Jess, and Kaela, a trio of human teenagers trained by Hamato Yuta, the father of Hamato Yoshi/Splinter, that get pulled into the conflict between the Turtles, the Kraang, and the Foot Clan.
The author has written two other fics set in the same universe: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - War of the Heart of Darkness, which is completed, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Void of the Ten Dimensions, which is in progress.
Note: This article assumes that you have seen all episodes of the show up to "Earth's Last Stand." Therefore, all spoilers regarding the show's events will be unmarked. You Have Been Warned.
Currently under construction; any contributions are appreciated.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - Vengeance of the Foot Clan contains examples of the following tropes:
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Jess has a crush on Mako, a delinquent at their school who turns out to be a member of the Purple Dragons.
- Alternate Universe Fic: While set in the universe of the 2012 cartoon, the fics also incorporate characters from other TMNT series, such as Kitsune from the IDW Publishing comics, Max Winters from the 2012 film, and Eric Sacks from the 2014 film.
- Baleful Polymorph:
- During the events of Vengeance of the Foot Clan, Ethan is exposed to mutagen and transforms into a red panda. He's initially horrified, but Master Hamato helps him realize the pros of his condition.
- During War of the Heart of Darkness, Jess is captured by the Foot Clan and forcibly converted into an Arctic fox.
- The Ghost: While mentioned frequently, the Turtles don't physically appear at all until the penultimate chapter of War of the Heart of Darkness; a big part of Ethan, Jess, and Kaela's mission is finding them.
