Donatello is a mutant soft-shell Turtle, and the second oldest of the four ninja sons adopted and presumably trained by Hamato Yoshi (a.k.a. Splinter), along with his brothers Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael. He is the team's resident tech-head. Of the Turtles, he is the one with the fewest changes compared to previous incarnations. He wields a high-tech version of his traditional bō, which is also a "Transforming tech-bo".
Physical Appearance Edit
Donatello has jade green skin with purple pixel designs painted on his upper arms and thighs, a light brown plastron and dark brown carapace. He also has a large head (to indicate his intelligence), thick black eyebrows, black eyes, three fingers on each hand and two toes on each foot.
Donnie wears a purple mask that pulls over the top of his head (with short square-cut mask tails), silver convertible goggles with a red and blue lens and a purple battle shell that fits over his real shell. He also wears purple fingerless gloves with matching socks on his feet, a silver tech-gauntlet with a blue touchscreen, purple elbow and knee pads, and a purple belt with color-matching pouches and Turtle emblem.
He prefers tech over mystic powers, and he is more reckless than previous incarnations, as he is stated to be an adrenaline junkie. Donnie also has a tendency to go over the top with his plans and even show off, such as desiring uranium for his machines, and going on about the container he made for a sick Splinter. He can seem passive aggressive, instead of confronting his brothers about their bad habits he made "gifts" that would force his brothers to give up their habits.
