"We're gonna be heroes!"

Michelangelo is a mutant box turtle that is able to close the openings of his shell to make it even more difficult to attack. He is an artist and skateboarder, and instead of nunchucks, he wields a kusari-fundo, which possesses a "mystical whip" ability. He is the youngest of the Turtles.

Physical Appearance

Michelangelo has teal green skin, yellow-orange circles painted on his shoulders and thighs, a bright yellow plastron with neon pink and blue lighting bolts painted on it, and a navy teal carapace with yellow-orange designs. He has black eyes, a small gap on the right side of his upper jaw, three fingers on each hand and two toes on each foot.

Mikey wears an orange mask over his eyes (with short mask tails), orange wristbands and color-matching socks and orange knee pads with faces drawn on them (dead face on the right and smiley face on the left). He also wears a light brown belt around his chest and strap over his right shoulder, as well as a Turtle emblem over his heart.

Personality

Michelangelo is very similar to his previous incarnations as he loves to crack jokes and is generally more optimistic than his brothers. He has a passion for art, presumably of many kinds as he is shown to have a passion for painting and cooking. Mikey can be very oblivious, as shown in Shell in the Cell, where he interrupts Donnie many times, likely without realizing he is doing it. He also tends to be naive, but kind-hearted.  

History

Bio

Youngest of the group, Michelangelo has a wild and colorful personality. He's an artist and spends his time tagging the Turtles' lair—and his own box turtle shell—with graffiti. He's an eternal optimist and an absolute natural at ninjutsu.
