—Theme Song

Michelangelo, aka Mikey, is a member of the Ninja Turtles. He is a mutant Red-Eared Slider turtle who is the jokester of the Ninja Turtles and the youngest of his brothers. As the jokester of the Ninja Turtles, he is the most wild one and innocent one out of his brothers, who always provides the team with his jokes, pranks, pop culture-based knowledge, and games during combat. Due to him being the immature of the team, he does not take his training with Splinter seriously and his Ninjutsu skills are sometimes affected by this quality. Wearing an orange bandanna that represents his enthusiasm and happiness, he wields a pair of twin Nun-Chucks/ Kusarigama as his signature weapons of choice. He is in love with Shinigami and Renet Tilley. He has a rivalry with Chris Bradford/ Rahzar, K'Vathrak/ The Newtralizer, Vrax Belebome/ Belly Bomb and Savanti Romero. Michelangelo debuts in Rise of the Turtles Part One.


Fifteen years ago, Hamato Yoshi had suffered from the loss of both his wife, Tang Shen, and his daughter, Hamato Miwa, by the hands of Oroku Saki after a fire that took place in the Hamato Dojo in Tokyo, Japan one night. Since Yoshi had lost everything on that night, he fled to New York City to start a new life, which was the place that Tang Shen wanted to move to with Yoshi and Miwa. One day in New York, Hamato Yoshi went to a pet shop and bought four baby turtles. As he was leaving from the pet shop to head back home, he bumps past a strange man in the streets. Yoshi had bad vibes about this man and decided to follow him, leading him into an alley.
Hamato Yoshi Fights Normans
That was where he saw the man meeting up with a group of men that were identical in appearance to him. As they gathered around, one of the men was seen holding what seemed to be a canister with a weird, green substance. But then the meeting was interrupted when Yoshi accidentally steps on a rat that was passing by him, causing him to blow his cover. The group of men spotted him and so a fight occurs when Hamato Yoshi tries to defend himself from the men. During the fight, the canister falls on both Yoshi and the four baby turtles, causing the substance to spill and mutates all five of them.
Baby Turtles Mutation
With the ooze coming in contact with them, Hamato Yoshi mutates into a humanoid brown rat, which was the last animal he came in contact with before his mutation. In the other hand, the four red-eared slider turtles mutate into humanoid versions of themselves. Due to their new mutant forms, they fled from the surface and moved into the Sewers so that they could live there. The five mutants move in an abandoned subway station, which they now call home. Hamato Yoshi, now adopting the nickname of "Splinter" becomes the adoptive father of the mutant turtles and names them all after his four Renaissance Italian artists. One of the turtles was named Michelangelo, named after the Renaissance Italian artist, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simon. At some point while Splinter started to raise the turtles, he introduces them into the ways of Ninjutsu in order for them to become the new ninjas of his family's clan, The Hamato Clan. During their training, Michelangelo was given an orange bandanna and a pair of twin Nun-Chucks/ Kusarigama as his signature weapons of choice.
