Raph became the rebel of the group, often sparring with Leonardo. Raphael is a total hothead, who immediately jumps into battle without thinking in the Next Mutation. That's why he often crashes with Leonardo, who prefers to make a plan rather than simply rushing into battle.
His weapons are still his two Sai, but are slightly larger than in the other versions and can even be connected into a rod. He also owns a motorcycle, which is his favorite means of transportation. It would also mark the first time Raph drives a motorcycle. Though it seemed Raphael despised Venus de Milo the female turtle, the two of them seem to spend a lot of time with each other on the show, though this is usually when they are sparring.
