The All-Star team in the 2003 animated television series was first encountered by the Turtles when the latter were fighting in the Triceraton arena. Though intimidating foes, the Turtles defeated them all soundly.
After their ignominious defeat by the Turtles (which they survived as opposed to the comics), the All-Stars were disgraced and by order of Zanramon were put in jail. Traximus, himself a former gladiator and resistance fighter, freed Monza Ram and his men from captivity, after which they swore allegiance to him and joined his rebel movement. Monza Ram personally helped the Turtles, during the Triceraton invasion of earth, free their brother Donatello, who was held captive on the Triceraton Homeworld, steal Zanramons space cruiser right from under his nose, and escape from the base ship.
- In the original Mirage comic, the All-Star members were all mentioned by name: Monza Ram, Daz Ublem, Mixx Trolo and Xiote Damaz. Who had each name is still unknown. In the 2003 TV series, Monza Ram kept his name while the other members lost theirs for some unknown reason.
