Impulsive, creative and very social, Michelangelo is the heart and soul of the Ninja Turtles. He may be the smallest of his mutant brothers, but that doesn't make him the weakest! He has a thousand ideas, and every now and then, one of them will be brilliant.

Mikey is the most agile of all his brothers. His skateboarding and dancing skills are unmatched by any friend or foe! 

Mikey is very close with Donatello. The two are often paired together when Leonardo and Raphael are either training or arguing. Also, Mikey is usually the most enthusiastic about Donatello's newest finished invention.

His signature weapons are dual nunchakus, though he has also been portrayed using other weapons, such as a grappling hook!  


Mikey's "Cowabunga" expression became a pop culture phenomenon. He also tells his other brothers to "chillax" and not be so serious all the time.


As the "party dude", he usually doesn't have much input in the team's plans to stop their enemies. 


Master Splinter has mentioned that Michelangelo obtains the most 'raw talent' of all the brothers but with his lack of focus and interest in training, he will probably never meet his full potential.


Michelangelo has a fondness for pizza! Even more than the others turtles.

"Wise men say, "forgiveness is divine" but never pay full price for late pizza."

- Michelangelo
