1987 Raphael is the variant of Raphael in the 80's incarnation dimension. He first appeared in the episode Wormquake! along with his brothers taking on the Kraathatrogon.


Raphael is a mutant turtle with a bright red bandana worn across his face. Raph also sports bright red elbow and knee pads around his body and a brown belt across his torso for his pair of sai.


  • He is portrayed by Rob Paulsen, the same person who voices Raphael in the 1987 TV show. He is also currently voicing Donatello in this Nickelodeon series.
  • In Trans-Dimensional Turtles, Raphael is seen stabbing a pizza slice on his sai and slapping the rest of the pie at the screen. This is a clear reference to the 1987 TMNT TV show's intro sequence.
    • Raphael also exclaims "Gimme a break!", another reference to the intro.


  • "Cowabunga!"
  • "Gimme a break!"
  • "That's why we called on you poseurs-- I mean, Turtles-- for help."
  • "I think I'm gonna like putting more cracks in youth is imposter's shell."
