‘Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Plot

Four mutant turtle brothers skulk deep in the sewers of New York City. Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo, and Michelangelo are early adolescent brothers who go on fresh and thrilling adventures. As they navigate the modern world and other hidden realms, they use their mystic ninja abilities to learn to work together as a cohesive unit and become a team of heroes. As they uncover the hidden metropolis beneath New York and find time for a slice of their favorite pizza, the brothers receive a whole new look, new weapons, and new powers.

The turtle brothers and their pal April O'Neil face an evil alchemist named Baron Draxum and the treacherous Foot Clan. They also discover their Master Splinter's secret: he used to be a martial arts expert and movie star named Lou Jitsu. To stop the Foot and Draxum from resurrecting the Shredder, a monster formerly banished by Splinter's ancestors, they must collect components of an ancient dark armor known as the Kuroi Yroi.

‘Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Main Characters: The Turtles

Raphael 'Raph' (voiced by Omar Benson Miller) is a 15-year-old alligator snapping turtle and the group's unofficial leader before the second-season finale. Raph wielded two tonfa in battle that can amplify his own physical strength with red mystical energy. In battle, he has a penchant for speaking in the third person. Raph has several catchphrases, including 'Jumpin' Jackflash' when he's astonished and 'Hot Soup' while he's fighting.

Donatello 'Donnie' (voiced by Josh Brener) is the older twin of Leo, a 14-year-old spiny softshell turtle. He is the team's 'genius' and enjoys receiving praise. Because of his kind, he has a sidekick drone named S.H.E.L.L.D.O.N. and various battle shells that he manufactures to aid him in battle. Instead of using a magical weapon like his siblings, he uses a high-tech version of his traditional wooden staff in battle, which can convert into a variety of weapons such as drills or a rocket-powered hammer. 

Leonardo 'Leo' (voiced by Ben Schwartz) – A 14-year-old red-eared slider and the team's current leader as of the Season 2 conclusion. He's renowned as the group's trickster, believing that his one-liners will 'light up the crew,' but he's proved to have genuine charisma. In combat, Leo uses a dachi blade to open portals, but in the season two finale, he was given new katanas that allow him to transfer himself or others. Despite his arrogance, Leo is insecure and feels the need to be correct all of the time. 

Michelangelo 'Mikey' (voiced by Brandon Mychal Smith) — A 13-year-old ornate box turtle who is the troublemaker brother. He is a caring and affectionate artist who is also known as the group's wild card. Mikey uses a kusari-fundo in battle and can transform into a fire spirit.
