TMNT Tournament Fighter Challenge SNES

Mike / June 21st, 2011

Mike and James play TMNT Tournament Fighter on SNES. The winner gets to watch the last 20 minutes of the 1990 TMNT live action movie. The loser has to watch the horrifying full 20 minutes of Turtle Tunes where the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sing nursery rhymes.
With James Rolfe and Mike Matei

    Mike’s potential penalty at the end was harsh πŸ™

    Whoever is editing the video STILL has to watch the nursery rhymes -.-lll

    Always love video game related videos!! Thanks, it’s awesome πŸ˜€

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:03 am

    This was so awesome. I laughed the whole time. God. I think this is my favorite of the recent turtles videos. Brilliant idea.

    Haha Motherfucker Mike! Time to get what’s comin to ya!

    Love every expression on James’ face from consoling Mike to his fate, through watching the movie. Dude, I almost died laughing. You’re the best.


  • June 21, 2011 at 1:05 am

    man id love to see videos like this, you and mike playing video games. but just a bit longer. these could be easily 15-20 minutes using lots of raw footage. could make it longer and less work editing, since im sure there’s alot of stuff that’s cut out that people would love to see.

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:11 am

    Awesome! You two never disappoint. I love how, in a room filled with video games, Mike picked Super Metroid to play. You’ve got good taste, Motherfucker!

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:17 am

    I got so excited when I saw the SNES cartridge on the homepage, and you did not disappoint

    can’t wait for the AVGN to make a return πŸ™‚

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:18 am

    The only redeeming part of the “Coming Out Of Their Shells” tour video (which I own, too btw 0.0 ) was during Shredder’s “I Hate Music” set, one of the records he put into the grinder was New Kids On The Block. Being 9 years old at the time I saw this, I couldn’t help but mark hard for that.

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:19 am

    LOL, I see a sequel in the works after this sketch. Poor Mike!!!

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:25 am

    Man i love this game, I have the shitty sega version though πŸ™ i need to get my hands on this one.

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:26 am

    Is it just me… Or when the ninja turtle jumped off of the skateboard near the end did he do the jerking off hand movement?

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:26 am

    Hey, I liked it. Something a little more original than what we normally see.

  • daemonncorps

    June 21, 2011 at 1:31 am

    Haha, love how Mike said it’s been years since he played the game while James said it’s been a while… wonder what the word choice meant and how it related to the ultimate victor?

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:40 am

    I remember TMNT Tournament Fighters. We used to play that game about as much as we did Turtles in Time.

    About Super Metroid… it’s one of my favorite games ever, and I can tear that game apart. I know in my latest run, I ended up going the back way into the wrecked ship, and got the gravity suit before the varia suit.

    Hahahaha it was awesome! Good Job guys!

  • June 21, 2011 at 2:51 am

    Do they both have Asperger’s? Is that why they are friends?

  • duhhxxiloveyou

    June 21, 2011 at 2:51 am

    mike is hot

  • Zentu

    June 21, 2011 at 3:09 am

    Asperger’s? Um……Noooo, they are friends though. Seriously Owen F.? did you Really need to ask? if you dident like the video then just Don’t comment on it.

    – Anyway, I thought the movie was funny. Growing up, I do believe I remember seeing the Singing Turtles give some type of interview. and Mikealengo was talking about some weird Dream with Dog food of all things…… Again it was a long time ago…… I was thinking the DVDs were switched at the end but that theory disapheared when it was a VHS tape.

    June 21, 2011 at 3:16 am

    Mike knew them lyrics pretty well πŸ˜€

  • June 21, 2011 at 3:20 am

    I have the Tournament Fighters too!!!
    It was a christmas gift along with Mortal Kombat. (My second and third games for SNES, after Super Mario World)
    Of those two, my favorite was, and still is, the Tournament Fighters!!!

    motherfucker mike reminds me of Steve Busciemi

  • Tempest

    June 21, 2011 at 4:05 am

    Hahaha, I was waiting for Mike to do what he did the whole time!

  • June 21, 2011 at 4:47 am

    Sweet idea for Turtle Tuesday!

  • Kawau

    June 21, 2011 at 4:49 am

    For some reason having that comment first only made this more entertaining. Also, seeing the “hot” comments made me realize I’ve noticed a wedding ring but never thought about it. They’re not gay, are they?

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • June 21, 2011 at 4:54 am

    Dude I have been a Turtles fan since the good ol’ days, and I don’t remember ever seeing turtle tunes. Thank god….That shit looks HORRIBLE!

    Super Metroid is so good that it completely wipes out any recent bad memories in your brain. Its like an antidote or something and MF Mike knows it.

  • startrekalien

    June 21, 2011 at 5:23 am

    1. TMNT Tournament Fighters is AWESOME!!!
    2. Why did James have to go upstairs like if he was gonna do something bad?
    3. Anyone remember the Turtles on a rock tour provided by Pizza Hut?

  • Henkka

    June 21, 2011 at 6:20 am

    i was thinking that Mike would put on a nes-game in the very beginning,not watching the TurtleTunes even for 5 seconds after James went upstairs

  • GasparXR

    June 21, 2011 at 6:41 am

    I would really like the AVGN do a review on the original three Metroid games after the movie is complete, so we can get a more in-depth review of it (nothing wrong with the less in-depth ones of course). Super metroid is one of my favourite games of all time.

  • batman tas

    June 21, 2011 at 6:56 am

    Very good!!!

  • June 21, 2011 at 7:23 am

    I had the TMNT movie James had when I was a kid. I remember it was awesome. Poor Mike. You should make another one but with James looses that game. Funny video though.

  • padillatortilla

    June 21, 2011 at 7:27 am

    haha man, that was great. You and Mike make a great team! Keep up the awesome videos!

  • June 21, 2011 at 7:30 am

    Hell yeah. What makes the original live action turtle movie awesome: Shredder kicking the shit out of the turtles!

  • June 21, 2011 at 7:32 am

    Oh and BTW, Don was the best character in Tournament fighters. Properly played, he was basically the Ryu of the game.


    June 21, 2011 at 7:34 am

    This was a very good game, i wonder why it didnt have any sequel at all. Almost every other fighting game had it. I just hated the fact most of the featured characters were practically unknown for most people while the most popular ones barely appeared just as part of the background or so, such as Bebop and Rocksteady. Regardless, it was a great game and had great music as well.


    June 21, 2011 at 7:38 am

    No, Leonardo was like Ryu, Donatello was more like Akuma, because his power to swing fast the bo allowed you to beat almost any opponent in perfect and i no time. Believe it or not the best desperate attack was Wingnut’s, because if you executed it at the right time and position you can kill any opponent even at their FULL energy bar, nobody else in the entire game can do that, not even Karai. By the way, Karai was way too powerful, it was impossible to lose with her.

  • Dunndunn

    June 21, 2011 at 8:37 am

    lolol i love jame’s face when shredder drops in ahah

  • govna47

  • June 21, 2011 at 8:57 am

    I was hoping James was going to win. Think it’s fair I search the movie and then watch the last 25 minutes. Loved the ending!

  • hajpermegaman

    June 21, 2011 at 8:59 am

    Lol took quite a while for Mike to cheat. I was waiting for it all the time lol.

  • June 21, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Lol I was wondering when Mother Fucker Mike was going to Mother Fucking cheat.

    Kinda took too long which made the ending a bit of a let down, but very funny concept anyway.

    Seeing the contrast between the two TMNT videos was certainly funny.

  • Terranigma freak

    June 21, 2011 at 9:28 am

    Awwww, this video was disappointing. I wish James and Mike could have talked more about Turtles Tournament Fighters with more footage of them playing. Don’t get me wrong, this was pretty funny, but I hope the game won’t be glanced over just like that.

  • June 21, 2011 at 9:30 am

    It’s cool that I watched this eating a pizza… oh well it had to happen with all the TMNT stuff you’re doing these days

  • Dolly Dagger

    June 21, 2011 at 9:36 am

    Time limits in tournament fighter games are freaking weak.

    And speaking of weak, please burn that copy of Turtle Tunes and never speak of it again. I realize it may not actually burn as it’s probably manufactured in hell, but at least attempt it.

  • June 21, 2011 at 9:40 am

    This video was a squandered opportunity in my opinion. This weeks video should have been an in depth playthrough of Tournament Fighters and next week should have been the watching of Turtles Tunes/the first movie.

  • June 21, 2011 at 9:53 am

    haha poor mike xD

  • Fei Wong

    June 21, 2011 at 10:01 am

    This is absolutely amazing, i knew for sure that M’fucker wouldnt see the entire piece of trash and do something else, and shit, Super Metroid! now thats an awesome game πŸ˜€
    Thanks for the laughs gentlemen.

  • PoLaR

    June 21, 2011 at 10:07 am

    Epic lol

    I gotta ask.. did you guys actually decide Mike would have to watch the shitty movie or did you guys actually play the TMNT fighter lol

  • mrsleep

    June 21, 2011 at 10:09 am

    Great vid, I loved how Mike was sweating it before you got started.

  • AnKun

    June 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

    I’m surprised Mike have sat through this much before giving up. He’s a MOtherfucker Mike after all, he should have played Metroid 24 minutes and than put on the last minute of turtle tunes.

  • Skeletonz

    June 21, 2011 at 10:43 am

    Nice video. You should review turtle tunes.

  • June 21, 2011 at 10:48 am

    LMAO Super Metroid to the rescue! πŸ˜€ It would’ve been funny if you had beaten the game by the time he got downstairs.

  • PorkFrydRice

    June 21, 2011 at 10:51 am

    Turtle Tunes huh? I gotta admit as big of a fan of Ninja Turtles as I was I’m extremely glad I never came across this VHS or any of the horrible TMNT VHS tapes that James reviewed. I will say that seeing people in Turtle costumes does remind me back when they used to have the Ninja Turtles at MGM Studios in Disney World.

  • June 21, 2011 at 11:18 am

    man i wish i could hang out with you guys more interesting stuff
    plus i would have put on the snes right after james left lol
    or i would not lose at that game lol funny vid

  • Jigglysaint

    June 21, 2011 at 11:21 am

    That was horrible! The Turtle Tunes that is. I could never figure out how people could put on those kinds of shows with a straight face. I mean the movies, yeah, that’s entertainment. That crap? My only guess is that these people who sing like that must really hate children and care so less about them that they would be willing to shovel rehashed kiddie tunes. In fact it would be funny if they sang them sarcastically, like they were trying to insult the child’s intelligence for their parent’s buying that crap for them.

  • June 21, 2011 at 11:45 am

    That was hilarious guys. And Mike, I don’t blame you one bit for playing Super Metroid. That game is a million time better than that Turtles Tunes piece of shit. I loved the ending where James acted like he was your father and telling you how he was going to punish you if he caught you doing something good again, lol!

    Great job boys! The live action movie was one of my favorite movies growing up. That fight at the end always gave me chills. I think what made it even more thrilling was that awesome music playing when shredder was beating the crap out of the turtles. Turtle tunes on the other hand *clears throat* SUCKS! I feel bad for you Mike, but good thinking with popping in Super Metroid!

    I thought James was going to walk in and simply say “You mother fucker!”

  • TheProudHobo

  • imposter

    June 21, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    I was hoping this game would turn up in your turtle extravaganza! I remember my brothers and I would get our friends over and have a huge Tournament Fighters Tournament. One of my favorite games on SNES.

    That punishment was brutal though. It was torture just seeing clips of that disgrace. Made me laugh to see that expression when Shredder shows up in the movie.

    When they sang “this is a disaster”, I said “this is a disaster alright.” and then cracked up when Mike said the same exact thing a second later. Great minds think alike I guess.

  • handsome pete

    June 21, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    They should have both watched TMNT until the last 25 minutes, then James finishes the movie while MF Mike watches whatever the fuck that other thing was.

    June 21, 2011 at 1:33 pm

  • June 21, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    lol this is awesome guys. this could be a really fun series. it could definitely be a low workload hit with the fans guys, just do a a little motherfucker mike versus james series where you play against eachother in various games, and losers gotta do some shit or something!

    June 21, 2011 at 2:23 pm

    awesome video guys. but on a sidenote how many times does he need to announce that AVGN isn’t over and that its gonna be having new episodes again very soon…do people not know how to read or are they just slow? i mean on every video i see people bitching that avgn is over…like if your a fan of the guys you’d know it wasn’t over by now.

    TMNT Tournament Fighter isn’t a knock off of Mortal Kombat but a knock off of street fighter. And a good knock off too I had a lot of fun playing it back in the day.

    Nice video James, keep them comming.

  • Radelta

    June 21, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    I love how you intercut the live-action movie with the shitty Turtles Tunes video to make Turtle Tunes look even shittier.

  • June 21, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    Man, the turtle tunes were just awful ripoffs of public domain songs. Who was behind the music on this show, the same people as Barney the purple what the fuck is that it sure as hell doesn’t look like a dinosaur? I dunno. I googled it and found no info. But yeah. This is awful.

  • June 21, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    HAHAHAHAHA that was hilarious! Turtle Tunes! Oh my God… they wouldn’t even do that at Gitmo!

  • RetroGamerK91

    June 21, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    Haha! Great video! That ‘Turtle Tunes’ tape is pure torture. I didn’t hear of it till now. How could they do that to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? Probably because Hollywood wanted to milk out the franchise in any way they could. I don’t blame Motherfucker Mike for stopping the tape to play Super Metroid, it’s a great game that’ll make you forget all about that crappy tape!

  • bj_smokey

    June 21, 2011 at 5:33 pm

    Haha. Awesome video as always. I feel bad for Mike. That shit is terrible. However, that TMNT Tournament Fighter game is awesome! All the super moves were great. Aaaaaah childhood. πŸ™‚

  • scronan

    June 21, 2011 at 7:32 pm

    That was fucking awesome! I laughed my ass off. πŸ™‚

    Hmm…however, I think you should have played the Japanese version so we could see Asska, I mean Aska in a G-String…lol. This is one of my favorite all times games – and I think the best fight for 2 players is Rat King vs Karai (have to use a code to do it) man I used to get in some epic battles back in college with a buddy of mine. πŸ˜‰

  • TomM

    June 21, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    That was really creative and interesting. I just knew Mike was going to be a Motherfucker and end up watching, or in this case play, something else. Nice work. Loved your reactions. One of my favorite Turtle Tuesdays yet. Keep up the good work!

    First off this is one of my favorite videos of this theme you’re doing.

    I couldn’t be any happier being a fellow turtles fan all thanks to you James.

    I got to say to Motherfucker Mike “How does it feel now motherfucker?” lol.

    If you think about all these videos out of no where combine are worst than the board games.

    I would rather play Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters on Sega Genesis.

    Anyway at the end of the video if you said that to me I would blow my fucking brains out.

    Please keep up the good work and I am awaiting for the movie to come out.

    “Ever since I was a young boy, IΒ΄ve played the silver ball…”!

    What was that on the beginning? Were the TMNT ripping off WhoΒ΄s Pinball Wizard?

    Loved the vid.

  • punksterdaddy

    June 22, 2011 at 2:51 am

    I don’t understand it? How did Mike lose?
    In my eyes Mike won this challenge! He got to to sing along to such classics as…

    “I love to skate around the fountain…” and the brilliant “Row Boat Disaster.”

    Are you trying to say that you don’t like “Turtle Tunes?”
    You guys are just far to picky and have no taste when it comes to epic music!

  • June 22, 2011 at 2:52 am

    Amazing video. Until now, I never heard of or saw Turtle Tunes. Thank God I never watched it. But the first movie is still a classic

  • UnlizenedRAVe

    June 22, 2011 at 2:54 am

    First of all…TMNT movie was shot in my home town *thumbs up*

    Second, Donatello has always been my least favorite turtle, and yet he is always the best turtle when it comes to video games, TMNT:TF included.

    Oh….MY God. I’m hap…ok I WAS happy to say I hadn’t even HEARD of this ‘turtle tunes’ in my life. As an old-school TMNT fanatic, I can say that the transition effect between the two shown here give a superb example of just how atrocious that ‘film’ is.
    How could someone feel good about themselves creating, producing and marketing something so absolutely retarded.
    Whats funny, is the damn thing is STILL over 20 dollars:

    Might as well take a twenty dollar bill and use it as a monkey condom.

    but please please as an act of kindness if you choose to sign up for free (and there are not costs anyway) leave the referrer as it is as a way of a thank you, I leave it to your trust, I must be mad trusting internet strangers but anyway its up to you if you click.

    June 22, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    I was hoping to see more than roughly a minute of Mike and James playing TMNT:TF. Also I loved the expression on James’ face when the Shredder came on screen. Priceless.

    The end of the video didn’t make any sense. They agreed to watch the last 25 minutes of the videos but James got up and left when the credits started. And then he gets mad at Mike for playing Super Metroid instead of watching the last bit of his video? Wut

  • June 27, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Mike’s facial expressions were priceless.

  • June 27, 2011 at 4:19 pm

  • Lassez

    June 27, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    Thanks for another great turtles video, I definitely don’t need to see any more turtles songs… The wrap rap takes the cake!

    With all the recent turtles videos on cinemassacre, is there any chance you might review or opinionate on the 2003 series? I dont know if its any good, but from what I heard and saw it seems a bit like the red sky seasons from the first series.

  • Fazer

    June 27, 2011 at 8:49 pm

  • June 27, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Love the video. Never played tournament fighter though. I thought I was a big fan of TMNT growing up, I actually remember going to the coming out of their shell tour in Milwaukee at the Bradley Center. Turns out I was not as big of a fan as I thought, because of not knowing about the game or the turtle tunes video.

  • June 27, 2011 at 10:02 pm

    This may not have been AVGN but it was exactly the kind of atmosphere and feeling I would get from the series! I love when you and your friends are just faffing about the house and hanging out. I always get more laughs from this site than any other viral site I go on. Hope all is going good with the movie James!
    And Mike, I would love to see more videos starring you! You seem to be meshing out into a full fledged wingman! Can we call you Goose? :3

  • frankblack666

    June 28, 2011 at 5:58 pm

    Good video, but you are one merciless bastard James. Making someone watch even 5 minutes of Turtle Tunes should legally be considered armed assault. Yes, I have seen that much of it, and no, I am still not fully recovered. That threat at the end? That should be a war crime.

  • markwritesmusic

    Now that I look back at this video, I wish you had showed more of the gameplay and made the video longer πŸ™‚

    I think Mike should have got another go, time is bullshit; especially considering the stakes.

    lol Mikes face during that movie is priceless. And James when the shredder came down lol….I love you guys man. I never seen or heard of that turtle tunes movie. I think that’s a good thing lol…Please keep the vids coming. It’s going to be a sad day when you two decide to stop doing these videos. And I mean that.
