Some TMNT stuff was always meant for grownups.

Michelangelo is the main protagonist of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin, carrying on after his three brothers had died. He seeks to avenge the murders of his brothers, said to be the work of Oroku Hiroto, the grandson of Oroku Saki.


Michelangelo is no longer as cheerful, joker, immature, optimistic and social as he used to be, now more distant, mature, serious, cautious, reflective, cold and etc. He was greatly affected by the death of his family and friends, especially that of his brothers, moved heaven and earth for justice to be done by killing Oroku Hiroto. Become desperate and determined at the same time, as evidenced by the risks ready to take to achieve it and having difficulty in moving forward and continuing to the point of committing suicide (luckily, will be avoided narrowly by fainting as a result of a blood loss).

He misses all those around his again and again, his family even more. He always brings their mask, weapon, and his father's book, including his and his, as a keepsake in order to achieve justice. But this first failure had a strong impact to the point of taking his life with sepuku, ignoring the protests of his late brothers. Avoided by fainting due to blood loss.

Getting to see old friends who were still alive, like April, had a positive impact on him. Just like worrying about it again and remembering that no one is ever alone. Rekindling hope and meaning in his life, also awakening little of his old self. Michelangelo befriends Casey Marie Jones early on, seeing a lot through her of her father's traits and more, becomes his sensei (somewhat thanks to his brothers).


Michelangelo is the lone survivor of an extermination attempt by current Foot Clan link, Oroku Hiroto, the grandson of Oroku Saki and "bastard" son of Karai. When Michelangelo decides it's time for Hiroto to pay for what he's done, Michelangelo scales the walls to the Foot-controlled New York City and infiltrates the zone. He steals a motorcycle belonging to a young woman called Jones and rides it as far as he can to Hiroto's compound, then crashes it into a tanker truck to create a distraction. While fighting off a cycloptic mouser, he crashes out of the building and is badly injured. Jones shows up and deliberately points the Foot in the wrong direction, following the injuried Michelangelo into the sewer, where he is preparing seppuku. Michelangelo passes out from blood loss, but not before Jones recognizes him as a mutant turtle. He dreams of being back at home with his brothers, but he wakes up in a hospital bed, overseen by April O'Neil. The Last Ronin #1

Mikey finds out that April has been living in the lair with this "Jones" woman, who is actually her and Casey's daughter, Casey Marie. Michelangelo had assumed that April had died in the explosion that killed Casey and Leonardo, but she survived and it literally just cost her an arm and a leg. The Last Ronin #2.

Michelangelo is killed in in The Last Ronin #5 but not before he succeeds in killing Hiroto. He reunites with his father, brothers, and Casey in the after life.
