Major Characters


Voice-over introduction

Tengu Shredder: After long, torturous years of enforced slumber, I have awoken to find this world, wanting. It is boisterous, filthy, and worst of all, a breeding ground for weakness. The pathetic ruler of this place, the mayor, lives here. A silly little puppet of the rabble, he knows nothing of true power! But it is my pleasure to educate him.

Mayor: (Cries out as Shredder bursts through the ceiling of his house)

Tengu Shredder: New York, as the natives call it, is better suited to fall into the ocean, than to hold the throne of the Emperor. However, it does hold a unique appeal. There is great power here. Power which I shall use to remake this world in my own image. I shall change ALL! The Shredder dynasty begins anew - TODAY!

Plot Synopsis

Shredder begins to build a new dynasty in New York, transforming the whole island into a hellish nightmare. The Turtles team up with Karai in a daring plan to direct Shredder’s energy against him from mystical “Keystones” around Manhattan. Our heroes successfully battle the Keystone Wardens and pour their energies into the Keystones… but will it be enough?


Mikey:This is gonna be sooooo easy! (a mystic warden appears)
Raph:You and yo' big mouth.

Raph: Well, the Ancient One said when we'll get close enough, we will feel it. (about the keystones)
Mikey:(notices the "keystone" and their amulets are glowing) Yeah, I think it feels us too.
