Casey Jones from TMNT (1990)

Casey Jones (Elias Koteas) was first introduced to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in an altercation with Raphael. The two of them actually fought each other in a New York City park, just after Raphael stopped some punk from stealing a woman’s purse and Casey was about to beat them to a pulp for that whereupon Casey turns his aggression on Raphael.
