Poll: Best Ninja Turtle? (173 votes)

Leonardo 21%
Raphael 24%
Michelangelo 19%
Donatello 31%
Venus (stfu, she ruled) 5%

Raphael could kick Donatello's ass, and Michelangelo would lose badly to Leonardo.

In that terrible CGI TMNT cartoon, Raphel beat Leonardo, but that was kind of bullshit, his swords would not just break like that from a Sai, and even if they did, he would win hand-to-hand combat.

I'm going for Leonardo, because in the 1st TMNT live action movie, he's the only turtle to get a strike a shredder in the final duel.

Donatello. ~ He actually knows how to roll it.

Teach a man how to fish, he'll teach you how to roll fish for days.

Raphael since he's a huge asshole and drives the plot forward in The Secret of the Ooze with authority and douchebaggery.

Well, everyone knows there were only four turtles that got covered in ooze. What Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation presupposes is... maybe there wasn't?

Venus was one of the five turtles that were exposed to mutagen in the sewers. When Splinter gathered up all the turtles, he accidentally left Venus behind. Somehow making her way to Chinatown, she was discovered by a shinobi magician called I Chung. I Chung took the turtle with him to China where he raised her as a daughter and named her Mei Pieh Chi. He also trained the turtle in the art of Shinobi.

Apparently, I Chung would on occasion travel to the realm of dreams where he would encounter Splinter. Both of them swapped stories of their turtles but chose to keep this a secret from the turtles themselves until the time was right. I Chung also had in his possession a glass mirror, within which were trapped humanoid Dragons. It was I Chung's purpose to make sure that the Dragons could never escape the mirror. The dragons eventually crossed over into the realm of dreams, attacking I Chung and kidnapping Splinter's spirit. On his deathbed, I Chung revealed to the female turtle her true origin and told her that her place was in New York.

Oh. And she knew magic.

I wish this were a joke...

Don't worry, after the Michael Bay movie, we'll be BEGGING for a return to Venus de Milo.

Raphael is my personal favorite, followed by Leonardo. Mikey would be third and Donatello dead last. And I disagree about the remark about the CGI animated Nickelodeon TMNT. It's not as bad as people say, and the CGI is really getting too much hate. It's not even that bad.

You mean the one that finally gave us the showdown between Raph and Leo? The thing the franchise had been building towards for its entire existence? Say what you will about that movie, but the fact that they gave me that, and nailed it, makes it great.

Raph won, but he lost... as he should've.

Do you, Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird expect me, a 30 year old man child, to believe that two martial arts masters independently, and yet at the same time, raised a mutated turtle to adulthood, taught them speak, how to do a roundhouse and made them wear bandanas over their eyes? Does she love pizza too?

Also: go Royal Tenenbaums reference.

Also, also: is that bandana meant to look like a long braided ponytail? Can you say genderrrr stereoptypiiiiiiing. I determine the sex of my turtles/tortoises the old fashioned way.

Leo is milquetoast as fuck.

Raph is over in the corner acting like an emo, angsty bitch because Leonardo is in charge.

Michelangelo is fun, but also kind of a doofus.

Then there's Donatello. He's got brains, brawn, the best color, and the best weapon. He's the complete package. 10/10, would be a fan of.

Also, that 2007 movie was pretty good in my opinion. Maybe it's because I wasn't expecting much, but I think it's easily the second best after the original. I also appreciated the fact that it's in the same continuity as those original movies.

Whew. Glad you cleared that up. The new Nick show is fantastic! I was definitely skeptical at first, but it's turned out to hit all the good charms of the original show and modernize it.

That said, I've always been a Leo fan. Dual katanas are always badass.

I'm sure it's been mentioned before, but if you played the NES Turtles game, Donatello was a dominant force.

Donatello. He's not annoying. Leo gets all moody, Raph is too angry, too argumentative and Mikey's a bit of a moron, but Donnie is cool. Oh and the bo-stick rocks.

And who the fuck is Venus?! Take her or it off the poll.

Don has the worst weapon, however I agree that if I had to choose a turtle for a roomate in college, it would be Don.

Don's Bo Staff against Shredders Spear is just too unfair.

Donatello is clearly the answer because he could hit guys from spots that no one else could in the NES/PC game. I mean really, all the turtles EXCEPT Donatello sucked in that game.

I love the dudes who got appalled by the lore implications of Venus.

It was a tv show about giant turtles for children, based on a comic book.

You're taking it waaay too seriously. It was a move to include young girls in the audience.

I thought it was pretty awesome of them.

I will go with the turtle not up there, Slash. Slash by far was always the coolest and deadliest of the Ninja Turtles, he was a freakin snapping turtle for crying out loud. I think fans of the original cartoon series and comics would remember. Also his action figure counterpart was pretty legit, he carried around a mace and razor edged swords.
