Some TMNT stuff really isn't for little kids.


Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Legend of the Yokai is a short film and fan-art compendium website that was made to promote the 2014 film.

The film's subject focuses on the Kappa Yokai, a team of four Kappa who serve as predecessors to the Ninja Turtles during feudal Japan.


"Legend tells us they came at a time of great pestilence: farms wielded no food; hearts, no hope. Jealousy and spite lured them to us: the demons, the Yokai. Through fear they enslaved the people, but a remnant of hope shined bright in the darkness: The Kappa Yokai, summoned not by anger as the demons, but instead, by their hogosha. Though powerful, they would require training from a master in the art of ninjutsu, one who could teach them the principles of Honor, Courage, Wisdom and Brotherhood, to become true heroes and defeat the warlord. With these newfound skills of ninjutsu, the Kappa Yokai were a deadly force, and for the first time in many years darkness was banished from the land. One generation passed the legend on to the next, preserving their memory, should they be needed once more."
