Believe it or not there was a 5th turtle that wasn't venus. However unlike venus he never made it past the cutting room floor. He was meant to be a reference to Jack Kirby of comic books fame and was going to wield dual daggers. More can be found out about him here. You may notice he puts his weapons away to fight, while I did sprite the weapons entirely on my own it was not because I was lazy. His point is he doesn't need them to fight but he will use them to finish an opponent off!

I don't have an arcade run of him yet but ill put one up soon.

So, not  a pink ball. With sword.

Man, he feels like the :gouki: of the game. Especially with that ex aerial knife shoot. Last ultra combo finish definitely broke Darksieds ass. Not to mention that music, felt like an ultra combo itself.

it's a pretty nice comparison tbh. He's a glass cannon with the lowest stun value in the game. However his offense and defense are very good. His air fireballs are designed to both be offense and defensively used and his normals are very much not the same as the other turtles in any capacity. Meanwhile he references almost everyone in the game without copying anything. I made him ironic given what the other kirby is known for lol.

This is surprising and great.

This made me remember Shin Ninja Turtle, an old mugen character. He was able to use all weapons of any other turtle. His color was yellow.

I know it won't happen, but a female TMNT such as Venus De Milo would be so excellent.

Sweet character progress there man.

Thank you for the update.

Yeah I know all about him, I thought that char initially had the weaponless sprites but I was wrong so a very helpful guy named N. ripped all the weaponless frames for me and I began drawing. Once you guys get to play with him you'll notice that any exposed shell frame has his weapons visibly on his back among other things. When he throws his weapon for his air projectile you'll only see one on his back and the omega version where he throws both no weapons are back there. that's the other way I couldn't be lazy because if he put the weapons up you ought to be able to see them when possible.

Wow. Few people know about Kirby and many dare speculate his concept later turned into Slash, but its just speculation.

I'm glad to see he is being given a great exposure in mugen.

Looks great Kame!  ;)

I know about Jack Kirby, though I never knew they thought about making him a 5th turtle. I remember the 2k3 TMNT having a homage episode for him when he died. At any rate, cool concept. BTW I gotta ask, what is that track? It's not from any version of TFs. Though it sounds befitting for the theme you're going for with this game.

It's a beta theme. I've used 3 so far for chars who either didn't have one or jl chars that had weak themes otherwise

This is the episode about the artist, Jack Kirby.


By the way, I didn't know Juri was in TMNT 2K

I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned in the 2012 series of Ninja Turtles. That show has a shit ton of references, easter eggs and callbacks to other media in the turtles franchise.

There was an episode that referenced the NES game's underwater level. (The electric seaweed)

The Kirby reference in 2K12 was April's dad's name.
Back from the bellows of hell
Back from the back of a jail in a cell
Back from the common decrees to the common degree
Back to the streets from the East
Back to the belly of beast
Back to the place of my peace
Back to me holding my piece
Anything working disturbing that peace
Will certainly meet the deceased, capiche?
