One of these side activities is to find ten Cameos across the game's sixteen episodes, which can open the door to even more quests or hit you square in the nostalgia if it's a character you have fond memories of from the Turtles' past adventures. Still, it's worth seeking every one of these Cameos out if you want to earn every Achievement/Trophy, earn EXP, or unlock even more missions to tackle.

Cameo 1: Burne Thompson

Burne Thompson is the first findable Cameo in Shredder's Revenge and is found in the game's first episode, "Jaw-Breaking News!" To locate him, progress through the mission as you normally would until you reach a room with purple carpet and a door in the background just to the right of a large number "6." To the right of the door will also be three windows, with two having graffiti on them.

Once in this room, you will notice the door jutting out due to someone hitting it from the other side. Walk over to the door and give it a few good smacks to open it up and reveal Burne Thompson! Freeing Burne will unlock his office in the overworld and provide you with access to the Classic Headlines Special Request.

Cameo 2: Irma

You can find Irma in the game's second episode, "Big Apple, 3 pm." She's located at the very end of the episode's first alleyway, found just after passing the "TV Zone" area. Once you reach the end of the alleyway, look for a green apartment building with two garbage bags on either side of the staircase. Like with Burne, Irma will be smacking the door from the otherside, causing it to pulsate with each hit. Walk up to the door and give it a good hit yourself to free Irma!

With Irma freed, you will gain access to her apartment in the overworld, where she will give you a Special Request to find five Secret Diaries. These Diaries are spread throughout the game's sixteen chapters.

Cameo 3: Attila The Frog

Attila the Frog is found in the game's fourth episode, "Rumble in the Zoo." This Punk Frog is located just before you enter the zoo, at the end of the first street of the level. As you progress across the street, keep an eye out for an exposed manhole on the road and two large mailboxes on the sidewalk behind it. Once at this screen, make your way onto the sidewalk and destroy the mailboxes to free Attila!

Unless Attila is the fourth Punk Frog you found, he won't unlock anything for you. However, he is one of four Punk Frogs you can find across the game's sixteen episodes and is essential to gain access to the Disgusting Bugs Special Request.

Cameo 4: Genghis Frog

Episode Five, King of the Spill, is where you will find the second Punk Frog, Genghis Frog. Before finding Genghis, you must first make it to the sewers, which requires you to work your way through the NYC subway system. Once in the sewers, push onward as intended until you see a large vault door on the sewer walls. To open the vault door, hit the rustic valve crank, revealing Genghis Frog on the other side!

As touched on with Attila, Genghis is one of four Punk Frogs you will have to find to gain access to their hideout, granting you access to the Disgusting Bugs Special Request. If Genghis isn't your fourth Punk Frog, you will have to find the others, which we cover further in the guide!

Cameo 5: Napoleon Bonafrog

Napoleon Bonafrog is the third Punk Frog you can find in Shredder's Revenge and is located in the game's sixth episode, "Mall Meltdown." To find Napoleon, play through the level as you normally would until you reach the area just before the theater's entrance. This area will have two Foot Ninjas, and you will see a red carpet leading into the pitch-dark theater room. You will also see a cardboard cutout of the Punk Frogs near the entrance. After disposing of the Ninjas, head over to the Punk Frogs display and smash it to reveal the one and only Napoleon!

Like Attila and Genghis, Napoleon is one of four Punk Frogs needed to access their secret retreat,where you will gain access to their Special Request to find Disgusting Bugs. If you followed this guide from the start, Napoleon would be Punk Frog number three, leaving one left to find, which we will show you further below!

Cameo 6: Vernon Fenwick

Vernon Fenwick will be hidden away in the game's sixth episode, "Mall Meltdown" To free him, work your way through the level until you take an escalator up to the second floor and into Crystal Arcade. Once inside the Arcade, you will see a couple of Foot Ninjas playing on the cabinets and a popcorn machine in front of the left wall. Give the popcorn machine a good whack to reveal Vernon!

Now that you have freed Vernon Fenwick, you will have access to his Channel 6 Van in the overworld. Visit Vernon in his van to gain access to his Special Request, where he asks you to find five VHS Tapes hidden throughout the game's sixteen episodes.

Cameo 7: Rasputin The Mad Frog

Rasputin, the Mad Frog, will be tucked away in the ninth episode, "Crisis at Coney Island!" He is found relatively early in the level when you make your way across the long boardwalk next to the beach. As you traverse the boardwalk, keep your eyes peeled for a hotdog stand. There will be several Foot Ninjas here, so be on your best guard. After taking care of the Ninjas, destroy the hotdog stand to save the fourth Punk Frog, Rasputin!

If you followed this guide from the jump, Rasputin should be the fourth and final Punk Frog needed to access the Punk Frogs' New York City Retreat. Their retreat is accessed via the game's overworld and will give you access to their Special Request to find Disgusting Bugs spread throughout the sixteen episodes of Shredder's Revenge.

Cameo 8: Dask

Dask is the first Neutrino you can find and is located in the game's eleventh episode, "Dinosaur Stampede!" To free Dask, make your way through the level until you reach a room with a painting and red tents. Once here, Foot Ninjas will jump through the painting and begin attacking you, dispose of them, and remain in the area. You will notice a wooden crate with a red Foot Clan logo on the front next to a shipping box and in front of the previously mentioned red tents. Break open the wooden crate to reveal Dask!

Similar to the Punk Toads, Dask is one of three Neutrinos you can find throughout the game, and finding all three of them will grant you access to their hangout and let you take on their Special Request to find Crystal Shards. If Dask is your first Neutrino Cameo, you will need to find two more, which we cover below!

Cameo 9: Kala

Kala is located in the game's thirteenth episode, "Technodrome Redux." Early in the level, as you progress through it as you usually would, you will end up in an area with grenade-hurling enemies and tiny robot spiders that will give you a brutal encounter. However, in this area, there will also be three dome-like objects in the background. The left and middle ones will be closed initially, with the right one blown wide open. Taking the context clues into account, head to the left dome and bust it open with an attack to free Kala!

Kala should be the second Neutrino Cameo you saved if you've followed this guide from the start, leaving one more remaining. Rescuing all three Neutrino will unlock their hangout in the overworld, allowing you to take on their Special Request to find Crystal Shards.

Cameo 10: Zak

Zak is the tenth and final Cameo in Shredder's Revenge and is found in the game's fourteenth episode, "The Lost Archenemies." Zak is located towards the end of the level, just before reaching the stage's boss fight, so make your way through it until you get to the section where laser guns emerge from trapdoors hidden in the ground. Once here, you will fight several Foot Ninjas and come across a coral-like plant sitting alone on a rock in the background. Take care of the laser guns and Ninjas, then head to the coral plant and smash it to free Zak!

If you have freed the other two Neutrino, rescuing Zak should give you access to the Dimension X Hangout in the game's overworld. Visiting their hangout will allow you to start their Special Request, which entails you finding Crystal Shards. If you need to find the other Neutrino, please refer to the quick links below!
