" For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;  Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.  For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."
In the TMNT episodes is a character called Kitsune, who is an ancient Japanese witch. She somehow can "shape-shift." Kitsune is allied with the Shredder, another villain.
According to TurtlePedia (turtlepedia.wikia.com):
|(Dragon Michelangelo from TMNT. Click for source.|
Interesting note: The character
Savanti Romero looks like a demon with horns sprouting
from his head and hoofs instead of human feet.)
Kitsune used magic (i.e. sorcery or witchcraft) to brainwash Leonardo, one of the ninja turtles (a man-like, mutant turtle). According to turtlepedia.wikia.com:
"Her first important act upon reawakening was to brainwash Leonardo with her dark magic, twisting his memories and self-doubts, ...." (Kitsune) [End quote]
The Bible speaks about all sorcery, magic, witchcraft, the occult, fortune telling, prognosticating, scrying, spell-casting, palm-reading, "psychic powers," wizardry, magic "arts," etc. as being evil and of the devil. In Deuteronomy 18 and throughout the Bible, God's Word says that these practices are forbidden.
"[10.] There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, 11. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. 12. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee."
The Foot Clan
|(The Foot Clan. Click for source.)|
Regarding the Foot Clan, TurtlePedia (turtlepedia.wikia.com) says:
"The Foot Clan consist of a multitude of faceless ninjas who exist to do battle with the heroic Turtles and ..."
"The Foot was originally a parody of the criminal ninja clan The Hand in Marvel Comic's, Daredevil. In addition ... both are ninja clans that originate from feudal Japan, practice ninjutsu and black magic, ..." [End quote] ("Foot Clan")
The Foot Clan uses black magic. What is implied in the Ninja Turtles universe is that there are apparently two sides to magic: white and black. But, the truth is that all magic is forbidden by God as being of the devil (See Deuteronomy 18:9-12).
A former witch (who became a Christian), David J. Meyer, said:
'The “force” [a witch term for their power source] has two sides and can be controlled by magic spells, ... Witches believe that there is good witchcraft and bad witchcraft, and the good always triumphs over evil! ... but it is all witchcraft.' (Meyer) [End quote]
|(The Dragon Lord, another character from TMNT. |

Regarding the Dragon (the deceased father of the Foot Clan), the same website says:
"The Dragon is first mentioned in Pantheon Family Reunion, part 1, as a character who already died in the past. Kitsune reveals that her entire involvement with Oroku Saki has been to groom him as a vessel for the Dragon's resurrection. She hopes not only to reunite her quarreling family, but to annihilate humanity in the process. Kitsune's plan immediately faces resistance: Jagwar doubts any human can be their father's vessel, and Manmoth considers their father too powerful to be harnessed." [End quote] ("Dragon (IDW)")
Kitsune wants this character called the Dragon to live inside a human being. This sounds like demon possession. Also, Revelation 12:9 reveals the identity of the actual Dragon.
" And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him."
Dragons played a role in live-action episodes and in cartoon episodes of the TMNT. Satan is clearly placing his fingerprint all over this popular franchise with dragon and occult themes.
"Demons and Dragons"
Dark themes are present in other stories within the TMNT universe. "Demons and Dragons" is the title of the second episode of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2003), an animated series aired on TV. The name reveals its dark nature.
An article on TurtlePedia about "Demons and Dragons" says:
|("Spirit Forge" from TMNT. Click for source.)|
"... Master Juto’s dojo for weapons training. Juto instructs the Acolytes on the importance of being one with your weapons physically and mystically, and tells them that current weapons will be useless against the forces of darkness they may soon face. The master summons the Spirit Forge and dares the Acolytes to reach into it to receive a gift from the gods - or unspeakable pain if they are deemed unworthy of a prize. At first, all of the students are hesitant, but Juto mocks Splinter [a mutant rat who is close to the ninja turtles], which infuriates Raphael. Raph stalks to the forge ..." ("Demons and Dragons")
The same website also mentioned this about a magical forge called
'The Spirit Forge is a mystical hearth that grants mystical weapons to
whomever is worthy. It's appearance is that of the top half a dragon's head with a clawed hand at each side. When its jaw opens, it is able to breath out a continuous fire. This fire is harmless to those who are "worthy", and to those not, "inexplicable pain". ...' ("Spirit Forge")
The forge has a dragon's head, magical properties, and it can somehow select who is "worthy" to receive a "mystical" weapon. This is none other than a magic device to promote an occult agenda to children and make sorcery (which is practiced today in witchcraft covens) acceptable to them.

The "Foot Mystics" and the Occult
Speaking of dragons, in one episode, titled "New World Order, Part 2", the ninja turtles are magically transformed into dragons, and in their dragon forms, they are able to fight off the magic power of the evil character called "Shredder."
|(The fire mystic from TMNT. Click for source.)|
Five strange characters called "Foot Mystics" accompany Shredder and use magic powers to fight the ninja turtles. After magically transforming into dragons, the ninja turtles defeat the "Foot Mystics." These same sorcerers use "black magic" along the "astral plane" in the episode titled "Bad Day" (aired on November 5, 2005) ("Foot Mystics" and "Bad Day").
Again, the occult / new age / witchcraft concept of the "astral" plane is spoken of in these children's cartoons.
In the same episode ("New World Order, Part 2"), the villain Shredder is stabbed in the chest with a magic sword. He pulls it out, unharmed. Then, he uses his magic powers to transform the sword into a "demon serpent," according to TurtlePedia. The demon serpent goes into attack mode to strike the wielder of the magic sword.
We will stop here to just say that the devil appeared to Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden as a serpent (a snake-like creature) or he possessed a serpent for his evil purposes of deception (See Genesis 3). Satan is compared to a serpent in Genesis 3. God tells Eve that her seed (Jesus) will crush the serpent's head, meaning that Satan would be defeated by Jesus Christ when Jesus went to the cross about 2,000 years ago.
Going back to TMNT, we see that the "Foot Mystics" are powerful sorcerers. Magic is being heavily promoted to children through the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise (movies, cartoons, comics, video games, etc.).
According to TurtlePedia:
|(TMNT Episode: "Notes from the Underground, Part 2". |
Click for source.)
(A girl who had seen the Biblical Hell said
that the demons in Hell looked like some of the
cartoon characters from children's shows.
She learned that they inspired many cartoon
shows for the purpose of harming kids.
See the video of her talking.)
"Their magic [i.e. the Foot Mystics] also lets them change their appearance, see events through a mystic pool, contact others through electronic communication devices on special and untraceable frequencies, and teleport over long distances." ("Foot Mystics")
Mystic pools are used by witches today for what is called "scrying". They also use scrying mirrors. Teleportation over long distances cannot actually happen in real life, but people in the occult world believe in "astral projection," which is their belief that they have can actually leave their bodies to explore the "astral plane." I believe what they are doing is simply having a demonic vision.
All this is occult teaching, and it is forbidden in Deuteronomy 18 and elsewhere in the Bible (such as in Galatians 5:19-21 and Revelation 21:8), but children's cartoon shows, video games, comic books, etc. promote this evil and dangerous occult world. Also, Hollywood and TV shows for families promote the occult, releasing movie after movie, and episode after episode in favor of aspects of the occult. We have not even mentioned books yet, but novels are beyond the scope of this article.
Children Are Vulnerable to What Is Being Taught Through Cartoons.
Children are especially vulnerable to the occult influences promoted through cartoon shows and videos. If you are a parent, you need to be aware of what your children are watching or reading. Your children will not likely end up going to occult bookstores when they get older, but the occult does a lot of harm in the form of rebellion, as the Bible teaches in 1 Samuel 15:23.
1 Samuel 15:23 says: "For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from being king."
God is saying through the prophet, Samuel, that witchcraft and rebellion are synonymous. If a child is interested in occultic (or occult) cartoons, he will likely be more rebellious than children who do not watch popular / worldly cartoons or movies.

The [Magic] Sword of Tengu
The Shredder, a villain in the TMNT universe, has a magic sword called the "Sword of Tengu." It is said to use a "potent mix of science and sorcery", according to TurtlePedia. The website says:
"According to Splinter [a mutant rat who is like a father figure to the ninja turtles], the Sword of Tengu is a "potent mix of science and sorcery." TurtlePedia said this about the Sword of Tengu:
|(Sword of Tengu.)|
'Using magic and Utrom technology, the sword is exceptionally powerful. It can fire sonic waves when swung that can obliterate anything and anyone in its wake (if it doesn't just injure them). Shredder bragged that with the sword he laid villages to waste, brought castles to ground, and vanquished armies, giving hint to its true, terrible and destructive potential. The proof of its mystical capabilities is when Splinter used it to defeat the Foot Mystics, believing that, "conquering our mystic foe requires a mystic weapon."' [End quote] ("Sword of Tengu")
Magic objects are sold online and in witchcraft stores. They contain spells or supposed "magical" properties to accomplish certain actions. Magic rings are sold to provide "protection" to the wearer. But, these rings and other talismans only bring spiritual bondage and demonic oppression. The late David J. Meyer, a former witch who then became a Christian, said this about magic objects and talismans:
'The “force” [a witch term for their power source] has two sides and can be controlled by magic spells, ... potions, ..., rings, amulets, and so on. Witches believe that there is good witchcraft and bad witchcraft, and the good always triumphs over evil! ... Thus, witches emphasize that good must triumph over evil, but it is all witchcraft.' (Meyer) [End quote]
As you can see, TMNT is not innocent entertainment. There is an agenda behind it as there is an agenda behind most popular forms of entertainment.
In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle universe, aliens play a prominent role as enemies of the turtles. They come in different forms. One variety of aliens, the "S-Gray," is based on Betty and Barney Hill's encounter with what they thought were alien entities ("S-Gray").
|("S-Gray alien" from TMNT. Click for source.)|
According to TurtlePedia, these grey aliens (or S-Gray) are clones of aliens which arrived to the earth years ago. They appear in the 2003 TMNT animated series ("S-Gray"). Other alien species in the TMNT universe include the brain-like Utrom, the "Kraang" (named after their leader Kraang, who was once an Utrom), Glaxxons, and others.
People around the world have had strange encounters with entities claiming to be "aliens" or "extraterrestrials," but prominent UFO researchers, who are highly-respected, have seen how cases of interaction between spirit beings hundreds of years ago and even up to the present time resemble interactions between "alien" entities and humans.
Jacques Vallee, a well-known and highly-regarded UFO researcher said this about "alien" entities:
"I had shown in Passport to Magonia that contact with ufonauts was only a modern extension of the age-old tradition of contact with nonhuman consciousness in the form of angels, demons, elves and slyphs." [End quote] (Dewey)
Vallee studied cases of human / non-human interaction in the Vatican archives. He concluded that aliens, fairies, demons, elves, and other creatures were all of the same nature (Vallee). The Bible speaks of how the devil comes appearing as an angel of light, even though he is not an angel of light in his true form.
The Bible speaks of demons as being deceivers, and having the ability to appear in various forms. In one form, Satan appears as a dragon. In another form, Satan can appear as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15), even though he is truly the prince of darkness.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 says this:
" For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
Glaxxons (aliens) from TMNT
Another species of aliens in TMNT cartoons are called the Glaxxons. They were featured in the the Cyber Turtles episode of the 1987–1996 animated series. According to TurtlePedia, "The Glaxxons are notable for resembling anthropomorphized Earth animals, such as birds, lions and snakes." ("The Glaxxons")
|("Glaxxons" from TMNT. Click for source.)|
The fact that these extraterrestrial (alien) creatures can appear as lions and snakes is very interesting because the beasts from the book of Revelation have aspects of various animals, and they are not from our world. While some parts of Revelation are figurative, a good portion of it is prophecy that God gave the human race about the actual future of the earth.
The Apostle John described what he saw in a vision. This vision was meant as a warning to the human race of what would happen to those who refuse to turn to Almighty God and His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Keep in mind what we have been talking about regarding the TMNT alien species as you read this passage from an ancient book of prophecy (in Revelation chapter 9).
"[1.] And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.
3. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
5. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. 6. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.
7. And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. 8. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.
9. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. 10. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.
11. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon. 12. One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter." [End quote]
Alarmingly, the alien entities and characters in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comics, TV series, movies, etc. are promoting something sinister and harmful to children, teens, and adults. The devil is seeking to kill, steal, and destroy (See John 10:10) children and all people with his wiles (stratagems and deceptions) (See Ephesians 6).
What you read or watch will affect you in a negative or positive way. If it contains any occult references or themes, it is harmful and spiritually dangerous.
Would you let your children wander into a war zone where violent fighting is taking place if you could help it? What millions of children watch and read today is designed by the one who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy their lives (John 10:10). His goal is nothing less than bringing as many people as he can into Hell. And, the Bible calls him the dragon, a serpent, a beast, and Satan.
But, thanks be to God that there is hope and salvation from sin, and that there is deliverance from Hell in Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for our sins about 2,000 years ago. There is abundant life in Jesus Christ alone (John 10:10).
John 10:10 says: "The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
