TMNT: Don VS Raph is a short animation directed by Sung Jin Ahn and written by Jhonen Vasquez. It premiered at San Diego Comic Con 2016 on July 21, 2016 and was later uploaded to Nickelodeon's official website and the official TMNT Facebook page the same day.



Leonardo comes out of the bathroom to discover that Raphael and Donatello are in the middle of an intense battle. Michelangelo explains that Raphael said that Donatello wouldn't need his gadgets if he focused on training, and Donatello explains that Raphael challenged him to a fight to prove that gadgets couldn't match his "perfectly-tuned fight engine" (or as Michelangelo calls it, "perfect tuna fight engine").

Leonardo appeals to Splinter to do something, but Splinter is confident that they will both come to understand that diversity in the team is important. Three hours later, they're still feebly pummeling each other, and a disgusted Splinter declares that he's going to bed.

Donatello announces they're evenly matched in physical strength, but Raphael refuses to give up until there is a clear victor. So the two begin competing in other ways to determine who is superior, including video games, armpit noises, cake-baking, shadow puppets, chili-pepper-eating, Jenga, hot-dog-eating, a drag beauty contest, and finally a jump-rope competition. Shredder, watching on a nearby rooftop with several Foot soldiers, declares it the dumbest thing he's ever seen.

The next morning, both Don and Raph are exhausted on the floor, and Leonardo orders them to shake hands. They do... right before they start thumb-wrestling.
