|Death Battle Combatant|
The Hot-Headed Ninja Turtle
|Origin|| Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1|
|Appearance(s)||Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Battle Royale|
|~ Raphael in the first TMNT movie|
Raphael is one of the main protagonists of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. He appeared in the 6th episode of Death Battle, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Battle Royale, where he fought against his brothers, Leonardo, Donatello and Michelangelo.
Raphael and his four brothers were ordinary turtles before getting covered in mutagen which would transform them into humanoid turtles. Raphael was given a red mask, uses two sai, and is the tough guy of the team. While this makes him one of the more dangerous of the four, his hot-headedness has led him into trouble on multiple occasions.
