Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
A Turtles Tournament
As a strict follower of the Bushido code, Leonardo has a strict sense of honor and discipline. Possibly more than the other Turtles, Leonardo has embraced the ninjutsu teaching of Master Splinter. No fighter is more technically sound than Leonardo.

A Whole New Shell Game
Leonardo was once a standard pet turtle, but was mutated into an anthropomorphic warrior by a radioactive "Ooze". Leonardo was trained by his rat master Splinter to be a ninja. A natural born leader, the blue wearing, katana sporting Leonardo often is the catalyst of the Turtles' battle strategies.
Heroes in a Half Shell
Leonardo was mutated by the Retromutagen Ooze that was used in an attempt to kill Hamato Yoshi. As Yoshi, trained Leonardo and his brothers in the art of ninjutsu, it became apparent that Leo had an excellent sense of leadership. Wielding twin katana, the serious and steadfast Leonardo leads his brothers into battle against the villainous Shredder.
TMNT: Mutant Melee
Mutant Melee Endings
And so Leo returns home to the Lair triumphant, but in defeating the Shredder, Leo learned that leadership means nothing without a great team. He gathers the Turtles together, and with Master Splinter's blessing, they enjoy a raucous evening of late-night sparring and pizza.

Fun Facts
Shared Origin
Part of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' origin story - with the young boy pushing a blind man out of the way of a speeding truck full of radioactive goop - mirrors that of Daredevil's. This, and the addition of their master Splinter's name being a parody of Daredevil's master Stick - culminate to an obvious parody of the Marvel title. However, TMNT co-creator Kevin Eastman has revealed via interviews that in his mind, the two events were one in the same, meaning that the boy that saved the blind man in TMNT was a young Matt Murdock. Of course, this makes little sense considering the fact that TMNT has such a rigid canon timeline, and Marvel's works on a sliding scale, but there you have it.
