April O'Neil is a black teenage girl with black eyes, thick eyelashes and curly brunette hair with bangs and two high ponytails. She often wears a pair of red cat-eye glasses with yellow lenses.
April wears a black choker around her neck, a long yellow t-shirt and a green sweatshirt with quarter sleeves, pale green trim and stripes, single button, and a "S" like logo over her heart and backside of the sweatshirt. She also wears dark navy blue leggings and yellow sneakers.
April is a true New Yorker and a real firecracker: upbeat, wisecracking, and confident. As the Turtles' only ally, she loves them like brothers—and along with her pet, Mayhem, joins them on all their epic adventures.
