The TMNT Tournament Fighters (SNES) Thread: TF Revelations


Is it archived?


There you go :slight_smile:


He was tick throwing after Tiger Kneed Shark Dive but using the Sonic Boom is much easier. And if the opponent takes the hit instead of blocking you can hit confirm into sweep.


I’ll be hosting a tournament in NorCal on 11/25! It’ll be on SNESmini (pad only until I find some compatible sticks), but I’ll be using CE. I’ll try to stream it, or record the matches at least!


Holy shit people still play this game. I was reading through this forum from the beginning and I went to the last page just to see if people still played it or if and when it died, but to my surprise, here I am. I just got Snes9x to play all the old fighting games of my childhood, I love the nostalgia so much. Anyways, do people play this on netplay for Snes9x? I’ve taken a liking to Wingnut and would love to improve if there’s anyone out there (though currently I suck balls).

Stay peaceful my dudes.


If you are looking to play some TMNT TF or any SNES fighter online, come check out the Discord and the TMNT TF Twitter!

Hope to see you there! :slight_smile:


And to now see TMNT as guest on Injustice 2


Friendly reminder that the old games tourney I’m hosting at Game Center in NorCal is tomorrow afternoon. Doors open at 3pm, come check it out! If you’re going to Hadocon, stop by afterwards, we’re there till pretty late.

Will also be attempting to stream at:

Follow for updates.

TMNT:TF Starts at 5:30pm.


Please humour me and check my findings on Tournament Fighters for the Genesis. I feel like more people ought to consider these in game mechanics. Am I the only one who knows this? I can’t be right? Start the video at 14:50 where my notes begin. Please watch past it to see the ‘amplifier’ demonstrations. I hope this interests people as it does me. 14:50 - 26:56 is all I want people to understand. The remainder of my Fighter’s Uprising videos are just demonstrations of moves and not so much about application and strategy. The purpose of the series is to encourage people to want to play the game. Thank you everyone and I hope your enthusiasm stays strong. It’s helped me pull apart the previous Tournament Fighters game and I will be pulling apart the SNES TF game without getting spoiled by everyone’s findings hopefully ;p


This is the last of the TF vids. The NOTES section kicks in at 24:35 with general strategies or observations for moves whether they be normals, or special moves. I also included a quasi chart showcasing what normals are special cancellable and what special moves can even combo. I’m sure it’s nothing compared to the knowledge and wisdom acquired by veteran players but it’s meant as a general overview for newcomers if any. There are time stamps provided for each character and a demo of their normals (except I forgot Wing Nuts’ air kicks dammit). At the end of each character section, I do a demo of various situations in which their ultimate attack connects or causes chip damage. It’s handy to have a vid to just watch certain moves connect. I forgot to add the Raphael blocked power drill into throw setup and will update my notes. Enjoy. I will be moving onto Justice League Task Force (SNES / Genesis) next.


why is the new version not called “CowaUNGA” edition?


Never stopped, B. Praise be to all the dudes putting work in this game. Don’t lurk instathots, lurk these strats.

Got a local game shop that has a copy of TMNT:TF but I don’t have a CRT for the SNES. Any way to hook up a SNES to a BenQ? :rofl:


Just a reminder to anyone heading to NEC18, I’ll be holding a tournament in the casuals room featuring Championship Edition, Sailor Moon S and ClayFighter Tournament Edition. Hope to see some of you there!

Just a reminder to anyone currently looking to learn more about the game, definitely check out the SNES Fighters Discord:

@Toomnyusernae Thanks for doing a Fighters Uprising breakdown for the TF series, it was a fun watch and just like your other work I appreciate the time and effort that goes into such work. I would definitely suggest you check out BizHawk, here are a few links to get you started straight from the Discord:

BizHawk (Adds frame advance, TAS Studio and virtual joy pad to simulate modern training mode on older games) (Install before Pre-Reqs)

BizHawk Prerequisites (Install Before Using BizHawk)

@Pertho There are converters out there, but the best thing to do is probably hit a few thrift stores and see what you can find. Otherwise, emulating via the SNES Mini or with Mednafen is your best bet.

@otter We’ve had some fun with the name over time, I’ll add that to the list of possible code names for revisions. :wink:

There was also a (pretty bad lol) stream at


Man oh man, Clay Fighter is such an odd beast. Someone said it was okay to give Bad Mr. Frosty like . . . . 10 special moves. Not interested in Tournament Edition balances though. Y’all should go read the instruction manual and the storylines. The lore is deep. For all three Clay Fighter games.


When is the next tourney?


Norcal tourney? And is tmnt tf the snes version?


You fellas do Clay Fighter 2 at all? I just finished a video tearing apart the first game (non-Tournament Edition). Just browsing the currently available move list on the net and noticed a slide special attack is missing for Ice (charge back, df + kick). Drives me insane when movelists are incomplete for old games. I wish I kept my old magazines as a kid.


@Toomnyusernae Clay Fighter 2 is not one we tend to play too often, it’s not the worst Clay Fighter game, but it’s hard to convince people to play TE much less 2. I have been doing some digging in old magazines myself lately, and I totally agree about getting rid of my old magazines, huge regrets on that choice.

Thanks to everyone who made it out for NEC! We’ll be doing another event at MAGFest 2018 this Saturday at 2 PM!
