—Kavaxas's first line, Scroll of the Demodragon
Kavaxas, aka Hot Head, is an enemy of the Ninja Turtles. As a the lord of the Demodragons and ruler of the Netherworld, he is one of the most powerful Demodragons of all from the Netherworld. With abilities such as pyrokinesis, necromancy, power absorption, and soul absorption, he has proven to be one of the most deadliest villains that the Ninja Turtles and his allies had to face (even more deadlier than Super Shredder in fact). Originally he was summoned by Tiger Claw through the aid of The Scroll of the Demodragon, so that the demon could resurrect the recently deceased master of The Foot Clan, The Shredder. As soon as The Shredder was resurrection and the two other deeds to his liberation were accomplished, he gained enough power in order for him to potentially take over the 10 dimensions, as he unleashed a Netherworld Invasion all over the streets of New York City. But once the Mystic Seal of the Ancients was fixed by Michelangelo and was able to command the demon for his own purposes, he ends up back to the Netherworld alongside Undead Shredder. He wields a Demodragon Staff as his signature weapon of choice. He has a rivalry with Tiger Claw. Kavaxas debuts in Scroll of the Demodragon.
Preparation For His Arrival
- "Children, heed my words. We are close at hand to bringing about his return. But we must find the Scroll of the Demodragon. With it, we will be able to summon a mighty being who has the power to bring forth the Master himself. It waits for us in this city. Go forth and capture the scroll. Do not fail me!"
- ―Tiger Claw to the Foot Cultists
The Summoning Of Kavaxas
- "You will bear witness to the summoning of a greater being, Kavaxas, the most powerful of all the Demodragons. And his power will soon belong to me."
"Navasa, zaan, kanda, athrovaxa, noruto, zavasay."
"Mavakaaa sekulaa nadavaaaa. Mavakaaa sekulaa nadavaaaa. Kavaxas!"
- ―Tiger Claw summoning Kavaxas
Kavaxas's First Task
- "You will do nothing but obey me."
"Ahh! The Seal of the Ancients. You are wiser than I thought, creature. Very well then. What would you have me do, Master?"
"You will destroy the Turtles and their human allies, as a sign of fidelity to the Foot. Make it slow. Make it painful."
"As you command."
- ―Kavaxas and Tiger Claw
Tiger Claw's True Intentions
- "I call upon the power of the Seal of the Ancients to bind you to my purpose."
"By the spirits of all Demodragons past, you have my will."
"Is it true? Only you have the power to manifest my wish, do you not?"
"Indeed, Master Tiger Claw. I have that power and so much more."
"Then you must do it. No matter what it takes. No matter who stands in your way. You will bring The Shredder back from the dead! "
- ―Tiger Claw and Kavaxas
The Resurrection Of Rahzar
Preparation For The Shredder's Resurrection
- "I do not have all I need to raise your precious Shredder yet. Two things remain; his heart, through which new life can flow, and his lost helmet, the Kuro Kabuto, which holds his mental energy."
"Then it is essential we recover them. Bradford, Xever, find the Kuro Kabuto and bring it to me."
- ―Kavaxas and Tiger Claw
Retrieving The Kuro Kabuto
Assembling The Kabuto
Mission To Retrieve The Heart
- "Faithful followers, for Kavaxas to resurrect the great Shredder, we must obtain one final item: the Shredder's heart!"
"Weird. I didn't think Shredder even had a heart."
"I have already sent Zeck and Steranko to find the heart."
"If they fail me, I will have both of their souls."
"You mean, if they fail me, Kavaxas."
"Okay, team, now we know what they're looking for. It's, um, gross and weird, but we have to stop them."
- ―Raphael and Michelangelo eavesdropping Kavaxas and Tiger Claw
Kavaxas' Impatience And Tiger Claw's Suspicions
- "Those incompetent mutant men of yours are responsible for losing the heart! I cannot resurrect Shredder without it. There is no other way!"
"You seem particularly invested in resurrecting my master."
"Don't worry, baby, we already found 'em."
"Is just as we thinks, Vizioso hides in filthy Hignight Hotel like rat."
"Looks like that fool's gonna skip town, Cat-man."
"Better make a move fast!"
"You must capture the heart! Allow his escape and I will tear the entire city to pieces!"
"And you as well."
"Stop this! You will do as I say, demon. Now, we will all prepare for the siege."

- "How easily you turned on us. What is your game?"
"Only to serve the one who holds the Seal, Master."
"Shredder, what will you have me do? Banish the Demodragon back to the Netherworld?"
"No. Kavaxas is a powerful ally. He will remain on Earth with us - as my second in command."
- ―Kavaxas, Tiger Claw, and Undead Shredder
Destruction Of The Seal
- "Now that Kavaxas is my second in command, you will relinquish the Seal of the Ancients to him. Right now."
"No, never. It is too dangerous, Shredder. I will not allow it."
"If you will not obey me, then you shall be destroyed."
"Yes! Finally! It is done."
"What? What is done?"
"I had to achieve three deeds to end this world. First, destroy a great warrior: Tatsu. Next, resurrect an evil warrior: Shredder. And finally, destroy the Seal that binds me."
- ―Kavaxas, Tiger Claw, and Undead Shredder

Final Showdown With Kavaxas
- "In a dimension of suffering, in an age of pain, I ruled on a throne of bone. I, Kavaxas, swore one day I would rule all dimensions. The time has come!"
Michelangelo Rebuilds The Seal
- "Huh? Ah-ha!"
"What are you doing?"
"Impossible! The Seal cannot be fixed. How how is it working?"
"'Cause I'm super dope like that, fool! Okay, Hot Head, you're gonna stop the ghost invasion and make everything normal again! Your new boss, Mikey, commands you."
"I must obey!"
- ―Kavaxas and Michelangelo
End Of The Invasion
Banishment To The Netherworld
- "I get it now. Mikey! Force Kavaxas to open up a portal back to the Netherworld! Hurry!"
"You heard him, Hot Head! Open up that portal, now!"
"As you commmand, Master."
"We do not belong here, demon.

- Two of the producers of the animated series, Brandon Auman and Ciro Nieli, were the ones responsible for announcing Kavaxas in each of their accounts on Instagram with a concept art of his.
- Brandon Auman posted the following "Kavaxas is coming to season 5! @superrobot74 designed "Hot Head", and he's being played by Mark Hamill aka Luke Skywalker! @hamillhimself #kavaxas #tmnt #markhamill #booyakasha #teenagemutantninjaturtles #cowabunga".
- Ciro Nieli posted the following "The force is strong with this one. Honored to invite Mark Hamill to portray this hot headed villain. @hamillhimself #theforceawakens #NickTMNT #nickelodeon #NinjaTurtles #cowabunga #booyakabunga #teenagemutantninjaturtles #starwars #maytheforcebewithyou".
- He was voiced by Mark Hamill, who has been well known for his roles such as Luke Skywalker (from the Star Wars Franchise) and The Joker (from the Batman Animated Series).
- Coincidentally, the new film "Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens" came out in theaters in the United States, which is also the same day in which Kavaxas was announced.
- The illustration of Kavaxas in the research texts that were seen in Scroll of the Demodragon, strongly resembles the 1992 action figure of Hothead, complete with his weapons and helmet.
- Another addition to this is that Michelangelo starts to refer to him as "Hot Head", as he is an indirect reboot to the character.
- According to Brandon Auman, Kavaxas was originally created by him when playing the TMNT RPG.
