Donatello is the "brains" of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, of which is comprised of his brothers Leonardo, Michelangelo, and Raphael. He has a vast amount of knowledge for all things relating to science and technology. He is best known for his purple bandana and his trusty weapon, the bo staff. He is often considered to be second-in-command of the turtles, behind Leonardo. He loves to fix things and is always the one who tries to keep the turtles from fighting with each other.
In the classic TMNT arcade games, Donatello was often a favorite because of his "reach" advantage over the other turtles. With his bo staff, Donatello's attacks reached the furthest, although the damage he inflicted was also significantly weaker than then other turtles.
