  • Episode Description
  • With Stockman showing up in the middle of the final battle between our heroes and the Shredder, everything is thrown into chaos — so much so that our heroes must temporarily join forces with the Shredder and Hun to defeat Stockman before he annihilates them all. But, once Stockman is finished off, the final fight continues. Facing this ultimate challenge high atop the Shredder's skyscraper, can our turtles emerge victorious?! Regardless, it promises to be a fight to the finish — or so it seems.moreless

  • Quotes (8)

    • Stockman: Do you know the most beautiful thing about my brilliant plan? I used you, Shredder, to transform me into this ultra-cyborg you see before you! A truly superior work of genius! But, all good things must come to an end. It's time to bid you adieu.

    • Stockman: (after punching Hun) Oh, that felt good! Now, I'm going to take you apart, piece by piece. A lovely irony, wouldn't you say?

    • Stockman: Rope?! You tried to stop me with rope?! How positively primitive! Raphael: I got your primitive... right here!

    • Raphael: It took everything we had to beat the Shredder last time! Donatello: And Robonut just took him out in 4.5 seconds. The Shredder and Hun. Michelangelo: Um, can we go home now?

    • Michaelangelo: Can someone please shut down that giant flying toaster oven?

    Notes (6)

    • Villains: Shredder, Hun, Baxter Stockman, Foot Elite, and Foot Soldiers

    • Prologue Narrator: Leonardo

    • The Sword of Tengu is destroyed in this episode's events, but it will return in a "flashback" in the Secret Origins trilogy to explain its creation.

    • Baxter's cyborg battle suit is kind of based off a similar story-arc in Volume Two of the MIRAGE comics (Issues 1-9), which saw Baxter replace his entire body with Cyborg battle armour.

    • This is based on the original Turtles comic, Issue #21

    Trivia (3)

    • If Stockman's rocket launcher is strong enough to blow a hole in the floor it should have been strong enough to kill the Elite Guard when he fired it directly at them.

    • Leonardo has three fingers. Yet the glove has more fingerholes than Leonardo has fingers. Yet he is able to wield the Sword of Tengu with the glove worn on his hand. Even if he could wear such a heavy glove with not enough fingers, he couldn't wield the sword so skillfully.

    • Stockman's body is a marvel of technology, because each of its four arms has multiple functions: a machinegun, a rocket launcher, and a flamethrower. At any given time, he can use any ammunition. This way, Stockman has the element of surprise.

    • The Shredder: I gave power to the Tokugowa clan
      In ancient Japan the Tokugowa clan defeated all the other clans and united Japan under the Tokugowa Shogunate, which lasted from 1603 to 1868. Under this system the Shogun was established as the supreme military authority in Japan (and its true ruler).
