Michelangelo or Michaelangelo often shortened to Mike or Mikey by his brothers, is one of the four protagonists of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media. The others are Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo and their teacher Splinter. He is often characterized by his orange headband, Nunchaku, his comic relief, and his happy-go-lucky attitude. He is reckless at times, and also underestimates some matters and does not care for his teacher Splinter's training sometimes. Although he has the innocence "of a child", he always brings his best game to a fight.
