The Kraang, aka Kraang, are enemies of the Ninja Turtles. Formerly known as the Utroms, a peaceful alien species of brain-like alien that lived in Dimension X, they were soon corrupted by Kraang Prime and his psychic powers as they joined the Kraang Hive Mind. As these aliens started to dominate most of Dimension X and started to invaded other planets, even mutating them with the Mutagen sacred from the Kraathatrogons. For some time, the Kraang Hive Mind had also discovered Earth and created the first humans with their Mutagen, as they were planning to mutate this planet next. As the leading cause of the mutations of Hamato Yoshi and the Ninja Turtles, they were also responsible for April O'Neil gaining her psychic powers through experiments. They've came to Earth to perfect the Mutagen on Earth, so that they could finally invade Earth and conquer the planet to transform it into their new Dimension X. Due to failed attempts to invade Earth and the Triceraton Empire defeating them, this lead to the Utrom High Council reclaiming their dominance over Dimension X. The Kraang debuts in Rise of the Turtles Part One.
For nexons, the Utroms were a species of brain-like aliens that lived in Dimension X, who each had different personalities. But then one day, Kraang (An Utrom scientist loyal to the Utrom High Council) discovered a substance known as the Mutagen, which originated from the Kraathatrogons. But after using it on himself to test it out, he mutated into a giant mutant Utrom and renamed himself Kraang Prime. With his mutation, he had gained psychic powers. With these new psychic powers of his, he was able to control a few of his former Utrom friends to a hive mind of his known as the Kraang Hive Mind. The corrupted Utroms became known as The Kraang.
