26 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Villains, Ranked
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is back on the big screen with the arrival of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem, the new film from producer (and star) Seth Rogen. As is explained in our review, it’s a promising start for the series. However, there’s more than enough history to look back on. After all, it’s been nearly 40 years since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles first debuted in their own comic book. Since then, there have been TV shows, movies, concert tours, and a shocking amount of action figures. Throughout it all, though, the Ninja Turtles have stood the test of time.
However, some of the villains they come up against sure haven’t. While the TMNT may be bodacious green superheroes, they’ve also come up against a long list of baddies looking to destroy them and/or the world. While some of them, like Shredder and Krang, are iconic, there are some others that are, shall we say, more lane than anything else.
Who’s great and who’s terrible, though? Luckily, we’ve done the work for you. After scouring through all of Ninja Turtles’ history, we’ve ranked the 26 best and worst villains the heroes on the half shell have ever come up against. Take a look below. And make sure you’re ready to see Mutant Mayhem when it hits theaters on August 2. And don’t worry, there’s already a sequel and a TV series on the way.
