Tmnt The Last Ronin: What Happened Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles



Tmnt The Last Ronin: The Last Ronin offers a glimpse into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ darkest future yet, but where did each Turtle end up?

The lives of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have taken some fantastic turns over the years, but none have hinted at a future as dismal or dour as The Last Ronin’s. The Foot Clan has gained control of the city in this alternate timeline, and only one Turtle survives to oppose them.

Kevin Eastman, Peter Laird, Tom Waltz, Esau & Isaac Escorza, Ben Bishop, Samuel Plata, Luis Antonio Delgado, Shawn Lee, and Bobby Curnow have revealed what happened to the rest of the Turtles throughout the series before establishing one as the Last Hero in a Half-Shell.

When the possibility for peace talks between the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Foot Clan emerged in Japan, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles thought they might have had a chance for peace before their world entirely fell apart.

While Splinter and Donatello traveled to the conference, the others were left behind to be attacked by Baxter Stockman’s army of robotic ninja troops in the hopes of kidnapping Professor Zayton Honeycutt, also known as Fugitioid, a Turtles ally.

April O’Neil, Fugitoid, and Michelangelo were left with no choice but to stand by and watch as Leonardo and Casey Jones stood alone against Stockman’s mechanical army, affording the others much-needed time to flee at the cost of their own lives.


The job was botched when Karai ordered her Foot Clan assassins to kill the Turtles and Splinter, leaving Splinter on the verge of death and his sons to deal with the repercussions. Dealing with it in Raphael’s instance meant attacking Karai in her own house.


In a blind rage, he stormed through the sewers and subways, slaying Foot Clan ninjas along the way until he finally confronted the lady who had harmed his father. Raphael had already begun culling dozens of assembled ninjas in quiet before making any introductions, leaving a bloody trail of corpses etched into Karai’s army.

Raphael stood firm in the face of the Foot’s whole force, even after being pierced with arrows, slashes, and stabs. Raphael’s life finally ended when Karai entered the fight for herself, though not without putting her in a permanent coma for her trouble.


Kevin Eastman, Peter Laid, Tom Waltz, Ben Bishop, Esau Escorza, and Isaac Escorza ultimately revealed the fates of Splinter and Donatello in The Last Ronin #4. After traveling to Japan in the hopes of holding a peace summit with the Foot Clan, they were met by Oroku Hiroto and his army.

The two heroes fought ruthlessly against their foes, inflicting as much damage on Oroku Hiroto’s pride as they did on his infantry by quickly dispatching his warriors.


Unfortunately, once the arrows started pouring down on them, Splinter and Donatello had little choice but to shield each other as best they could. Clan Hamato reinforcements would eventually drive the Foot off the battlefield, but it was far too late to do anything but lament the brave lives lost on that fateful day.


The generally cheery Michelangelo has survived to become the last of his brood in the dismal, lonely future of The Last Ronin. Michelangelo began walking with no particular destination after learning what had occurred to Donatello and Splinter in Japan.

It didn’t take long for Mikey to feel lonely and depressed, and he even tried to commit suicide by letting himself freeze on a cold mountaintop.

Despite his cold-blooded disposition, Michelangelo’s mutation has only progressed in his old age, making the senior Hero in a Half Shell an even more powerful version of himself. Hopefully, this will be enough to knock the Foot Clan to their knees for good.
