|Type Of Weapon||Mutagenic substance|
|First Appearance||Rise of the Turtles Part One|
Mutagen aka Mutagen Ooze, Ooze, or The Ooze is a weapon of The Kraang. This is a glowing, green substance originated from the Kraathatrogons, which is commonly used by The Kraang for either their mutation experiments or for their plans of planetary mutations. Mutagen debuts in Rise of the Turtles Part One.
Nexons ago in Dimension X, there was an Utrom scientist named Kraang. Kraang discovered one day that the Kraathatrogons produced a green substance. This substance was discovered when Kraang milked the Kraathatrogon worms. He then found out that this mysterious, green substance had some type of ability to cause genetic mutations to organics or inorganics, which he tested on himself to later become a psychic mutant Utrom. This substance became known as the Mutagen.
How it Mutates
If the Mutagen comes in contact with someone or something, it can cause it to genetically alter into a mutant. The Mutagen can cause a mutation if it is consumed, injected, or skin contact. Afterwards, the Ooze starts a genetic mutation in which the subject starts to feel a burning sensation. The Mutagen can then determine the look of the mutant by either mutating it into the last thing it came in contact with, into a blob, a much more altered version of itself, or mutate into something due to chemicals added into the Mutagen.
Effects on Organics and Inorganics
If the DNA is mixed with the last living thing(s) it touched, it can result into a mutant hybrid, like Kirby Bat, Snakeweed, or Baxter Fly. If the human came in contact with food, then it will mutate into a mutant food hybrid, like Pizza Face. If the human came in contact with trash, then it will mutate into a mutant trash hybrid, like Muckman. If the human came in contact with Mutagen but did not recently come in contact with anything, the result would be a mutant blob, like Mutagen Man. If the human came in contact with Mutagen that has a chemical alteration, then it will mutate into what the chemical contained, like Serpent Karai, Scumbug, or Super Shredder.
If the DNA is mixed with the last thing(s) it touched, it can result into a mutant hybrid. If the animal touched something that was food, then it will mutate into a mutant food hybrid, like Ice Cream Kitty. If the Mutagen touches more than one animal at the same time, it can mutate them into a mutant hybrid out of the animals, like Chimera. But if it didn't touch anything recently when in contact with the Mutagen, then it will result into the following:
If a mammal comes in contact with the Mutagen, then the mammal will turn into a human hybrid, like the Squirrelanoids.
If a mutant comes in contact with the Mutagen one more time, the mutant will become into a Super Mutant, which makes the mutant larger and more unstable, like Rahzar. But the Mutagen can also fuse more than one mutant to create one mutant, like Mega Shredder or Creepweed.
If the Mutagen comes in contact with a vehicle, it can turn from non-sentient to a sentient being, like Speed Demon.
