Important Events


  • Lil' Rineo/ Evil Ninja Commander's transformation is nearly identical to a giant version of Carter's mutation.
  • Leonardo giving Karai CPR parallels the same action taken during Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, Where he gave Yoshi CPR.
  • When Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Leatherhead entered Coney Island and the merry-go-round turned on, Bebop says "Turtles come out and play!", which is a reference to the film The Warriors.
  • When Splinter trips Super Shredder with the rope in his cane and causes him to fall from Wolf Hotel, it is similar to the scene from the original TMNT film in which Splinter defeats Shredder the same way, only difference was that he used one of the Nun-Chucks of Michelangelo.
  • Casey's crushing of Super Shredder in the garbage truck after a fall from a rooftop parallels the same action taken at the end of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990 film) - complete with saying "oops", although he is far less jovial when doing so here, due to the circumstances.
  • The way Super Shredder survives and breaks free of the garbage truck is similar to how Utrom Shredder survives and breaks free of the water tower dropped on him by Splinter in The Shredder Strikes, Part 2.
  • When Super Shredder's hand emerges from the garbage truck, it is a reference to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze when Super Shredder's hand emerges from the remains of the destroyed docks.


  • Through out the whole episode, Leatherhead for some unknown reason is shown with green skin and the same scars he had in Season 1.


  • "Requiem" is a Catholic mass meant to honor the recently deceased, which is fitting for the episode's tragic ending.
  • This episode aired earlier on December 30th, 2016 in South Korea.
