Sally Pride is dope as hell. First off, getting this little fun fact out of the way, her name is a take on Sally Ride, the first American woman in space. And like Sally Ride, Sally Pride is an absolute badass.
Originally a regular line that was experimented on, she survived and weirdly because an excellent driver and pilot. She’s basically like The Transporter if Jason Statham had personality in it.
Not only is she awesome, confident, and remarkable being the wheel, but she also has a lot of her animalistic strength as she’s also a lion meaning she will absolutely screw up someone getting in front of her meaning that we’d have a character like the aforementioned Ace Duck that would be a great midrange street brawler.
There are many characters on this list because they would look cool in the game or be fun to play as. Slash is both but that’s not why Slash is on this list. Slash is on this list because he absolutely deserves to be.
Originally a pet turtle in a little bowl with a plastic palm tree, Slash was taken and experimented on to create someone capable of hunting down the Ninja Turtles. He almost succeeded in killing Michelangelo when Leonardo impaled him and seemingly killed him.
Instead, he woke up elsewhere where he was trained and supported. He grew an admiration of Michelangelo and began to almost hero-worship him.
As time went on he wanted to be more and more responsible. Even injecting himself with a dangerous chemical designed to help him think more clearly and speak better despite the fact that the injection came at a high risk of death.
Over time he and his squad went after evil organizations that were making more bioweapons. While chasing a particularly nasty creep named Bishop (a small man with a large head piloting a robot that looks human) it was found out that the weapon they were looking for, much like “the real treasure”, was inside him all along. He realized that Bishop had forced him to kill while under their control and that there was a small nuclear bomb implanted in him that was set to go off soon.
He thanked his friends, took a final bite of a candy bar Mikey gave him, and lept from a plane piloted by Sally Pride where he fell over the Atlantic Ocean and detonated in a massive blast out of harm’s way from everyone else.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge is out now for PlayStation, Xbox, Nintendo Switch and PC. It’s a pretty budget-friendly title, priced at just $24.99.
