Michelangelo is able to close the openings of his shell to make it even more difficult to attack. He is an artist and skateboarder. His personality is similar to his earlier versions, but instead of nunchucks, he wields a kusari-fundo, which possesses a "mystical whip" ability. He is the youngest of the Turtles.
Michelangelo is the youngest of the four Turtles and has a wild and colorful personality. Michelangelo is very similar to his previous incarnations as he loves to crack jokes and is generally more optimistic than his brothers. He finds the fun in any situation, and if there is no fun – he’ll make it! Mikey is always gung-ho for adventure, which can sometimes get him into trouble. But above all else, he is an eternal optimist and kicks total butt at ninjutsu with his flaming kusari-fundo! Mikey can be very oblivious, as shown in Shell in the Cell, where he interrupts Donnie many times, likely without realizing he is doing it. He also tends to be naive, but kind-hearted.
