As a kid, Leonardo was my favorite one and my brother's turtle was Donatello.
But after watching 2003 series and other things, Raphael became my favorite and I like its character more than others.

Leonardo decapitated Shredder twice. One was a fake out (TMNT 2k3), but the other was for real (2012).
Leo gets my vote. Dude knows what it needs to be done, censorship be damned.

Mikey was my favorite as a kid, and then reading the IDW comics as an adult... he's still my favorite.

Donatello often looks for non-violent solutions to conflicts. He definitely chooses dialogue traits in CRPGs. Oh shit, I'm self-inserting.
he made an armored van that shoots manhole covers...there's nothing non-violent about that.

at least Leo and Raph own their violence. Donny just skirts around it with words.

I think that everyone has significant votes should tell you the TMNT are just a great team. There's no weak link.

Raph gets shit done, the rest of them wait around till splinter or Leo tells them what to do. He also wears red which is the best color other than purple.

Raph and it’s not close. As a child, I was definitely a Donatello guy though.

At the very least, we can all agree that Mikey is last.

Leondardo is the choice for all the boring people

Donatello is a fucking nerd

Raph is probably excited for the My Chemical Romance reunion

Mikey is the cool one who actually just wants to chill and be your bro. He also technically lasted the longest 1v1 against Shredder in the movie.
Leo was the only one who could hold his own against Shredder in the 80s cartoon (the only one that is canon)

Depends on the iteration. As a kid during the late 80s and throughout the 90s I loved Raphael. He’s the most badass in the 1990 film and has the best voice (Rob Paulson) in the Fred Wolf cartoon. Also his weapons are really unique and cool, at least for media at that time.

Over time I’ve come to appreciate Leonardo more. Especially in the 2012 cartoon where he is my favorite of the four. He has the best character arc and I relate to him a lot since I’m also the oldest sibling in my family and understand the pressures that brings, which the show explores well.

Mikey is fun and all but I never find him very compelling.

Don is by far the most underrated. I love that the 2012 show worked really hard to flesh him out more as he usually gets the least attention.

Glad to see so many votes for my boy Leo. All my friends thought he was just the boring leader guy. But blue is the best color, and swords are cool, so there.

I've talked about this before, but there was a scene in the TMNT movie I vividly remember seeing as a kid but definitely wasn't in the VHS version. It was when the turtles are all at the farm with April, and they're training together. Leo turns his bandanna around to blindfold himself and whoops everyone else's ass. That's why he was my favorite.

I've seen screenshots of this scene, so I know it existed, but the question is how the hell I even saw it in the first place since as far as I know it was cut from the film.

You've unlocked, Farmhand Donatello.

Leonardo was always my favorite but the best turtle Michelangelo, he’s a party dude and he was probably the first one to say cowabunga.

Leo is my boy. Donnie is a dork, Mikey is a goof and Raph was badass as a kid but his stupid temper is a problem.

How the fuck is Michelangelo not winning, seriously?

He's very clearly the best and I just assumed he was basically everyone's fave.

Donatello winning? Wtf.
