Raphael is a Mutant snapping turtle, and the oldest and leader of the Ninja Turtles. His weapons are a pair of tonfas.

History

Trivia

  • Unlike previous incarnations of the Turtles, this version of Raphael is both the oldest turtle and the leader of the team, instead of Leonardo.
    • Also, his weapon of choice will be the Tonfa instead of his usual weapon, the Sai.
  • According to the Rise of the TMNT concept art reveal live stream, Raph and Leo will have a brotherly rivalry, much like other incarnations.
  • Visually, Raph is much bigger than the rest of the Turtles.
  • When describing his leadership role on live stream, Raph was described as the "reactionary-type leader".
  • According to a behind the scenes video, the only reason that Raph is the leader, is because he is the oldest.
Raphael in The Passing
  • This version of Raphael is not the first to wield tonfas or wear a headscarf instead of a headband. The first such appearance of either was in the 1986 Mirage TMNT story The Passing, which takes place when the Mirage Turtles are still preteens in ninja training, all wearing headscarves, and Raphael's primary weapons were tonfas rather than the sais he would wield later on.
