Mario’s got some good moves for a plumber, but he’s no ninja. Game over, buddy.

(Although I like this, I must wax pedantical: Leonardo, the Ninja Turtle with the katanas, wore blue, not purple; that was Donatello. Maybe it was inspired by the first NES game’s glitch that could portmanteau the two turtles’ names into Donatardo during the intro. mulletsaurus, IkeCube, and I saw it happen firsthand ~15 years ago… and it still makes me giggle sometimes.)

    I can’t remember clearly how we TMNT to glitch out like that. Wasn’t it just a startup glitch that fucked up a bunch of the characters? Or was there some Game Genie-ry involved?

      Yeah, I think it was a dirty cartridge and/or system. Probably pretty hard to reproduce, but goddamn, that was hilarious.
