Nunchuks are awesome and synonymous with Mikey.

No, they shouldn't be changed. I liked the upgrade/combo weapon idea from 2012 toon well enough, at least as a backup, but for primary weapon, keep the chucks. (And he honestly doesn't even dual-wield them that often, usually only when flanked by multiple opponents. So he seems to know when using one is more practical than two.)

No, they're fine.
Do not concern yourself with what I've already done: rather tremble at the thought of what I am about to do.

I like to think that the turtles boys are more than proficient with all types of ninja fighting weapons and that their signature weapon is because that was the one they are most skilled with.
I imagine them growing up and training, they would compete and they all knew who was best with what. So if Mike decided to change to a different weapon, the other turtles might think “um okay, why?”

Personally I don’t think it should change. Nunchucks are cool AF IMO. If anything, I think it’d be pretty sweet if he started using throwing stars/knives way more. In a way where he appears to have an unlimited supply and just launches them off, taking out enimes 3-4 at a time with head shots. Like Shredder took out the that loose lipped foot soldier in Batman/TMNT

Mikey's chucks being replaced with the grappling line was the first time I ever noticed something was changed without explanation in a series. It always bothered me.

I subscribe to the fan theory that the weapons match or compliment each turtle's personality.

Raph is aggressive - sai are largely defensive.

Donnie is a tech nerd - he fights with the simplest of weapons.

Leo is calm and reserved - his is most deadly.

Mikey is energetic and all over the place - his require a lot of energy and focus to properly utilize.

I see taking away the chucks detracts from his character.

No, I don't think we should take away the nunchucks but I'm not against him and the other turtles using other weapons from time to time. But yeah, keep their primary weapons for all of them.
