As Karai tried to sneak out to go attack Shredder Leo said he wanted to come even tho ughshe said "no", so she walked up to him and looked like she was going to kiss him but only got close so she could throw blinding gas in his face and then runs off.
As Leo jumped up onto Karai cage to free her Shredder cuts the cage by mistake and Karai is then Mutated. She runs out of the building and Leo tries to stop her but she is gone already and blames himself for what happened to Karai. It is shown that he still has feelings for her and Karai seem to be hiding her feelings but now there is no clue if she can still remember who his is due to her mutation.
In Serpent Hunt when Leo tries talking to her Karai can't understand and Donnie says that every minute she is becoming more snake like but Leo doesn't give up. Then it looks like Karai about to attack him but comes eye to eye with him and says his name she then turns into her human form and begs for help. Leo offers to take her back to the lair but she says that she's too dangerous. In "The Deadly Venom", not only has Baxter successfully helped Karai control her mutation allowing her to remain in human form but shape-shift her arms into snakes, as well as infect her enemies with various toxins, poisons and acidic venombut he also brainwashes her into working for and obeying the Shredder once again, forcing her to call him "Father" against her will.
After infecting April, Casey, Mikey and Raphael with her incurably lethal snake's venom, she faced Leonardo; one-on-one who had managed to counteract her lethal venom by utilizing his newly developed healing gifts of "the healing hands" mantra Splinter had taught him earlier.
Although defeated, she managed to escape while Leonardo was distracted. Many nights later, in "Attack of the Mega Shredder", Karai is seen connected to a Kraang-like contraction that injects her brain with multiple brain-worms. She again staged a plan to capture the Turtles' and place in four separate traps.
This would then force Splinter to fight her to the bitter end for his sons' lives. Fortunately, Splinter later used his "healing hand" mantra, which weakened the brain-worm inside her head, causing her to spit it out, therefore restoring her free will.
Although the Turtles' searched long and hard, she had fled from the city of New York; presumably back to Japan. Many months later, Karai is later used by Splinter and April as a motivation for the Shredder to aid in fending off the Triceraton invasion in season's two-part finale "Annihilation: Karai is then killed off-screen with the Earth's destruction, but she is saved when the Ninja Turtles create a brand-new timeline in "Earth's Last Stand".
Finally free of the vile brain-worm that had controlled her, a furious and embittered Karai focuses all her efforts on taking down Oroku Saki and his criminal empire with the help of her old friend Shinigami; a Shinto witch who possesses extraordinarily powerful dark magic. To give more thought to her new drive, new Foot soldiers are recruited for her own army which she herself commands. Unfortunately, she is later captured by the Shredder who has now become an unusually strong bladed, muscular mutant himself and used as a leverage to force Splinter into another duel to the death.
Suspended in chains, Karai is forced to watch as her one true father is constantly pulverized by the Super Shredder's immense strength. She manages to use her mutant-snake abilities to break free of her restraints and joins up with April and the Turtles but are blocked by several Chrome Domes.
Later, Karai runs off with April and the Turtles to the Undercity and is horrified to see her father, Splinter, barely holding his own against Super Shredder. Before she can rush to her father's aid, more Chrome Domes attack and she watches in horror as Splinter and Oroku Saki fall 1, feet; presumably to their deaths. Karai then joins with Leonardo and April, to attract Oroku Saki to the surface.
She brutally attacks him with her tanto. She is almost crushed to death by a truck but is saved by April's strong telekinesis. She distracts Saki by "offering him the chance of redemption" without the need for vengeance, which was merely a ruse for a badly injured Leonardo to escape. She then took advantage of the Super Shredder's distraction to attack him directly by punching his pulsating mutated heart.
She abandoned the chase to help April get Leonardo back for medical attention. Some weeks later, Karai is shown to be working with the Mighty Mutanimals to plan her next move. She is shocked when they are interrupted by the sudden arrival of Super Shredder himself. She furiously attempts to attack him with her tanto sword but is blasted backward by his spiked mutated arm, is seriously hurt and knocked unconsciousness by the burning debris.
She is saved by Leonardo who desperately performed CPR to save her from more smoke inhalation and is taken to the hospital by Shinigami.

She Leonardo that there is nothing for him to apologize for, and thanks him for doing what no one else could: Finish off the Shredder. She looks on at the skies, where the spirit of Splinter watches over her and the others with pride. In the fifth and final season titled " Tales of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles "Karai and her good friend Shinigami were traveling in the dead of night in pursuit of Foot soldiers who had double-crossed her, as they accused her of not being worthy to rule the Foot clan.
She was suddenly attacked by a mysterious, masked warrior. She was shocked her to discover that it was, in fact, her old teacher and mentor- Hattori Tatsu.
After escaping thanks to Shinigami's dark arts she came to the Lair to warn the Turtles of Tatsu's desire to rule as the new Shredder, with the mutated, legendary Kuro Kabuto itself in his possession.
She is angered and horrified when told that Tiger Claw and his Foot cult is seeking the Kabuto to return Oroku Saki to life. She resolved for them all to find Tatsu and take him down while recovering the Kuro Kabuto, as it is the key that gives its wearer full control over the entire Foot clan. With Leonardo to back her up, Karai appeared at the warehouse where the Kabuto laid and sneaked up behind Tatsu, ready to strike the swordsman down. However, her gambit proved foolish, as her old teacher sensed her presence and beat her again with little effort.
In a fury, she knocked off his silver mask, revealing him to be blind. With Leonardo's aid, she was capable of putting him off guard and severely bite him with her snake fangs; thus infecting him with her lethal venom as well. She then turned to the Foot soldiers, stating that Tatsu had been merely using them and tarnishing the name of the Foot clan for his own glory, just as the Shredder had; that the Foot Clan deserves a noble destiny, one with honor and morality. When the bike was destroyed by the mutant-warthog's purple energy whips, she was saved from sustaining any injury via April's strong telekinetic abilities.
She then fought Kavaxas by even turning full snake and managed to gain the mystical Seal of the Ancients from him for a short time. Some nights later, in "End Times", Karai aided her April and the Turtles in recovering the fragments of Shredder's heart. She road with April on a motorcycle in pursuit of Bebop. When they were seen, she was saved from falling hard by April's incredibly strong telekinesis. Despite her best efforts, she was not able to stop the heart of her adopted "father" from falling into the hands of Tiger Claw and Kavaxas.
She eventually shows up at the Lair riding on Leatherhead's back.
She then went with Leonardo, Michelangelo and Leatherhead to stop Kavaxas and the revived, zombie-like Super Shredder. She watched as the two were dragged into the Netherworld via a mystic portal. As the sunset, she bed a final farewell to her father's spirit in the form a warm and loving hug. She wanted to appreciate the beautiful sunset with Leonardo and the others before going home.
In the two-part episode "When Worlds Collide", Karai seems to remain with the Turtles and her good friend April O'Neil in the Lair, where she frequently spars with Leonardo, whom she expressed her mutual romantic feelings for during their "playful" training sessions. She waited on the rooftops as the two Salamandrians arrived, and was obviously repulsed that Raphael had a thing for " a big newt. When the extraterrestrial bug Lord Dregg invaded, Karai was shocked at Leonardo's capture.
She tried to hold off the hordes of Vreen, but was eventually taken to Dregg's spaceship as well. Once released, she fought alongside Leonardo, Donatello and April against Lord Dregg, but was easily beaten.
Upon the destruction of the Newtralizer via electrocution, she expressed sadness when Michelangelo offered to use his temporarily acquired electric-generating abilities to buy her and the Turtles enough time to abandon ship; seemingly sacrificing his own life in the process. When Michelangelo reappeared unscathed, Karai assured him that today was a win and that they should celebrate. She expressed her exasperation when Raphael and Mona Lisa shared a loving hug.Tmnt 2012/Season 2 -Leo & Karai Moments-(Romance♥)
In "The Frankenstein Experiment" Karai briefly appeared in an illusion that the mummified Pharaoh had cast to torment Leonardo, as a vampire with the Super Shredder behind her, which gravely worried the Turtle leader. She joins up with her allies April and Casey, and later the Ninja Turtles, their 80's counterparts and the Mighty Mutanimals, to stop the present Bebop and Rocksteady from working with Krang and Shredder to rip apart both dimensions.
Personality[ edit ] Karai is serious, willful and high-spirited and wants to do things her own way but she's also fun loving and at some times bitterly sarcastic. She strongly believes in what she thinks is right and just. However, she also likes taking advantage of those that would benefit her or Shredder in the end.
She even believes in stopping those who would make the centuries old feud between the Foot and Hamato clans seem pointless, like when she opted to fight the Kraang to stop their inevitable invasion of the world.
She also had the courage to defy her adoptive father's orders and act on her own, with no fear of the unfortunate consequences.
Upon discovering the hard truth about her parentage and true heritage as a blood member of the Hamato Clan, she furiously disowned Oroku Saki as her father and attempted to escape his lair to return to her biological father. She then began to warm up more and grow closer to the Turtles; especially Leonardo. When she had learned the true tragic tale of her mother's untimely demise from Splinter, she wanted revenge on the Shredder so much that she fearlessly ran off to confront him.
When she was brainwashed by Shredder's mind-controlling brain-worms, she was sadistic and merciless toward her victims. Once she was finally released of the Shredder's control over her and regained her free will, she furiously dedicated her life to putting an end to Oroku Saki and his criminal empire over the Foot clan; piece by piece, even if it resulted in hurting those dear to her in the process.
She soon realized the unintended consequences of her vengeful actions and decided to after the Shredder himself; therefore putting herself in even more danger. Skills and abilities[ edit ] Karai is still highly trained in high leveled moves in ninjitsu and hand-to-hand combat ever since she was a girl.
Her weapons are a tanto knife which symbolizes her higher rank as a full-fledged kunoichi of the Foot clan and several shuriken. Her natural fighting skills make her incredibly agile in battle, even equal to Leonardo's high skill level. Unlike her series counterpart, Karai eventually gets inadvertently mutated into a semi-mindless purple-and-white snake. However, due to a small addition of human DNA included, she is able to transform back to her human form for short periods, retaining snake fangs, prehensile tongue and extended serpentine arms.
