The Battle Nexus.

The Battle Nexus was a "nexus" of dimensions connecting many different worlds, including Earth (called dimension "Third Earth" by the Gyoji) and the Triceraton homeworld. It was the home of the Battle Nexus Tournament, a competition held every three years where the mightiest warriors from numerous galaxies come together and battle to become the champion of the multiverse.

The Battle Nexus was governed by a mystical figure known only as the Ultimate Daimyo, who presided over the matches of the tournament and maintained the peace of his realm using the War Staff of Ultimate Power. Though the Daimyo had final say over who could compete in the tournament (and, more generally, on any other rulings) however, the individual matches were usually refereed by his servant, an ethereal being Gyoji.

The Battle Nexus was capable of supporting lifeforms from various atmospheric conditions, including Traximus, a member of the nitrogen and sulfur-breathing Triceraton race, who was able to move about and fight comfortably without the aid of a breathing apparatus.

The Ninja Turtles entered the Battle Nexus Tournament having followed Splinter through an interdimensional gateway. Once there, they learned that Splinter was in fact the previous champion of the competition, as had his own master Hamato Yoshi before him. While competing, the Turtles had to unfoil a plot conceived by the Ultimate Ninja - the son of the Daimyo - and Splinter's old rival, the evil dragon named Drako. The two had attempted to steal the Daimyo's staff and using it to rule the galaxies. Eventually, however, they were defeated. ("Big Brawl")

Later, Leonardo and Miyamoto Usagi return to the Battle Nexus after the fused "Ultimate Drako" scatters the Turtles across time and space. There, they must fight the two villains once again, but thanks to the Time Sceptre of Lord Simultaneous, they prevailed. ("The Real World, Part 2")

The Battle Nexus has been hinted at existing in the comic book version in issue 24 of Volume 4. In issues 25 and 26, Leonardo travels to it. He has yet to learn what the place is except that Splinter has fought there.

Tournament Champions

  • Hamato Yoshi (Former champion)
  • Shredder (Former champion. A statue of him was seen, indicating that he had fought in the Battle Nexus too. He may possibly be the original Saki.)
  • Ninja Tribunal (Former champions)
  • Drako (Former champion, won before Splinter)
  • Splinter (Former champion, won a few tournament before Michelangelo)
  • Michaelangelo (Current champion. Though the final round was interrupted, official victory status was awarded to Michaelangelo. In a later episode, an official Battle Nexus championship rematch was replayed and Michelangelo defeated his opponent Kluh again, this time fair and square. He also got a medal this time around for his character in battle.)

All tournament champions have a statue of themselves erected in the Hall of Champions.
