Donatello is a mutant soft-shell turtle and the team's resident tech-head. Of the Turtles, he is the one with the fewest changes compared to previous incarnations. He wields a high-tech version of his traditional , which is also a "transforming tech-bo".

Physical Appearance

Donatello is a mutant soft-shell turtle with jade green skin (with purple pixel designs painted on his upper arms and thighs), a light brown plastron and dark brown carapace. He also has a large head (to compliment his intelligence), thick black eyebrows, black eyes, three fingers and two toes on each foot.

Donnie wears a purple mask that pulls over the top of his head (with short square-cut mask tails), silver convertible goggles with a red and blue lens and a purple battle shell that fits over his real shell. He also wears purple fingerless gloves with matching socks on his feet, a silver tech-gauntlet with a blue touchscreen, purple elbow and knee pads, black shorts, and a purple belt with color-matching pouches and Turtle emblem.
