Chimera is a hybrid mutation between three different creatures: an eagle, a salmon and a worm.

History

When Speed Demon exploded at the end of Race with the Demon it spilled some mutagen gasoline over a bird, which was carrying a fish, which ate a worm.

April got a psychic connection to the creature after an accident with Donatello's neuro-transmitter.

Trivia

  • The Chimera was, according to Greek mythology, a monstrous fire-breathing hybrid creature, composed of the parts of more than one animal. Usually depicted as a lion, with the head of a goat arising from his back, and a tail that might end with a snake's head. Due to its combination of animal features, the term is often used in modern parlance to refer to any hybrid.
  • The Chimera is the first 3-creature hybrid mutant to appear in the series.
  • Chimera resembles the giant bird from The Giant Claw, a 1957 science fiction film.
  • The nickname Michelangelo suggests for the creature, "Turducken" is a culinary combination of a turkey, duck, and chicken.

Quotes

Michelangelo: Ooh! Bird, worm and fish. Three animals, one body. I know this one, there's like a perfect name for it in mythology!

Donatello: Chimera?

Michelangelo: No, Turducken! But Chimera works.
