Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Legend of the Supermutant (ミュータント タートルズ 超人伝説編, Myūtanto Tātoruzu Chōjin Densetsuhen; lit. "Mutant Turtles: Superman Legend") is an original video animation (OVA) released in Japan, lasting only two episodes. The direct-to-video film received mostly negative reviews.[citation needed]


The OVA was created to promote the new TMNT SuperMutants and Metal Mutants line of toys in 1995, and there are two episodes. In 1995, Dengeki Comics published a three-volume manga under the Super Turtles (ミュータント タートルズ) title, detailing the backstory of the MutaStones and the origin of the Super transformations, although the OVA would eventually tell its own original stories.

The OVA was produced by TV Tokyo as a tie-in to the Japanese version of the Ninja Turtles toyline sold by Takara. The first episode, released on VHS on 21 May 1996, is based on the Supermutants line, while the second episode, released in 1997, is based on the Metal Mutants line. The OVA features most of the same cast as TV Tokyo's Japanese dub of the 1987 TV series.

In the first episode, they went to a shrine built by the Neutrinos. A spirit living there, Kris Mu, gave them four MutaStones. The MutaStones let them become Super Turtles for 3 minutes. However, Shredder, Bebop, and Rocksteady managed to find the Dark MutaStones which transforms them into Devil Shredder and SuperMutants Bebop and Rocksteady. The Turtles were able to defeat them by transforming into a combined Turtle called the Turtle Saint.

The second episode involves a Saint Seiya-like magic armor that allows the Turtles to transform into animals. It also involves a magic mirror that controls the Metal Beasts. The mirror has seven Mutanite stones corresponding to the sun, moon, and five elements encased in it.
