Your HP is super-low, there are no pizzas on the horizon, and Foot Ninjas have surrendered you. What do you do? Yep, you make a Super Attack and wipe them all.
Super Attack is the latest addition to the legendary TMNT game franchise. It’s a special move you can use whenever your Ninja Power bar is full.
If you’re new to TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, you want to use your Super Attacks effectively. Otherwise, it becomes a pain in the neck—or maybe in the thumb—to beat Turtle Tenderizer or other annoying bosses like Rat King.
But the catch is that each character has four sets of unique super moves, some only available when you level up. (So, it could get quite confusing for an arcade-style beat ‘em up game).
GameObjective got your back, though. Here, we teach you how to master your power moves like a pro arcade gamer from the 90s.
Order a large pizza, play a Wu-Tang Clan song, grab the controller, and let the fun begin.
How to Make a Super Attack in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge
To make a Super Attack in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, press the Y-button when the Ninja Power, the blue bar next to your HP, is full. (Triangle on PlayStation, X on Nintendo Switch, and A on keyboard).
How to Make Super Flying and Super Dive Attacks
The game allows you to combine your Ninja Power with jumping and backflipping to create Super Flying and Super Dive Attacks.
It also encourages you to stack up your Ninja Power points to enter the Radical Mode, a temporary buff boosting your speed and damage.
Here’s how to activate and use each of these cool retro-ish strikes.
Super Dive Attack
To make a Super Dive Attack in TMNT: Shredder’s Revenge, you must perform a Super Attack mid-air. So, press the A-button to jump and then the Y-button before you land.
The Super Dive is your best bet when dealing with shielded enemies. But you have to reach Level 3 to unlock it.
Super Flying Attack
If your character is Level-6 or above, use the B-button to do a backflip and press the Y-button mid-way to create a Super Flying Attack.
The Super Flying Attack is the best counterattack move since it contains a backflip. So, basically, you dodge the enemy’s strike, getting back at them before they reposition.
The Radical Mode is the ultimate Super Attack in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder’s Revenge. To perform it, press the RB-button when the Ninja Power bar is at max. (It turns orange-ish when you refill it three times in a row).
Remember, the Radical Mode is only available to characters that reach Level 8. So, try leveling up if you can’t do it.
Pro Tips on Using the Super Attacks in Shredder’s Revenge
It takes time to master your Super Attacks as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Yes, practicing might get in the way of a fast-paced beat-em-up and make the gameplay repetitive. But not when you have six playable characters, each owning a unique move set. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Leonardo, for example, swings his Twin Katana, creating a tornado-like effect. Raphael, on the other hand, spins around with his arms wide open, holding onto his Twin Sai. And Master Splinter performs a Karate Kata as his Super Attack.
There’s always something new to master, which spices up the gameplay.
The following exclusive tips, however, will catalyze your learning progress, just like how Ooze mutated our beloved turtles in the 80s.
Charge your Ninja Power after clearing an area.
You have a few seconds before entering each part of a stage. Use it as a chance to refill the blue bar by pressing the RT-button.
You know how it is with side-scrolling brawlers: A butt-kicking boss might show up out of nowhere and catch you off guard. So, you have to be prepared at all times.
Use your Super Attacks where the enemies are stacking.
Performing a Super Attack restricts your movement. So, to make the most of it, release it where there are multiple enemies. You can lure them into the corners before letting them have it.
Level up your main character to unlock all Super Attacks.
Playing the Arcade or Story Mode levels up your character. And since certain attacks such as Super Dive, Super Flying, or Radical Mode are available when you reach higher levels, it’s best to focus on one character at a time to unlock all the moves before moving to another.
