Yellow (Kraang) Pink (Droid)
The Kraang are evil aliens that originated from Dimension X and are the one of the two predominant antagonists of this series, the other one being The Foot Clan. They are led by Kraang Prime and are determined to take over Earth and make it habitable for them so they can hide from their most feared enemy, The Triceratons.
Extra-Dimensional Enemies Of Earth
The Kraang cannot be reached for comment. So far, all we know is that they are a race of multi-tentacled brain-creatures, who are very far from home and are up to no good. Stay tuned - Nick
The Kraang are aliens from Dimension X who have arrived on Earth to take over and transform it into another home with their leader Kraang Prime. They try to speak like humans, but often end up speaking redundant vocabulary. They're deadly, mean, and loads of danger and are often seen either in their Kraang Droids or Norman suits with their laser guns as their weapon. These aliens will not give up until the Earth is theirs.
HistoryThe Kraang are multi-tentacled brain-creatures who came to Earth a millenia ago from another dimension to colonize it. Unfortunately for them, the Earth’s biosphere is not particularly hospitable to them, so they’re plotting to transform the Earth’s environment into something more suitable for their own kind – and destroy all human life! They brought the Mutagen Ooze with them from their own dimension, but it doesn't work as they thought it would, as the physical laws of our world are different from their own. They have been kidnapping scientists to help them modify it ever since. It has been revealed that it was the Kraang who were responsible for Splinter and the Turtles' mutation. The Kraang breathe a noxious gas that is toxic to humans and other Earthly life. Their ultimate goal is to mutate the entire planet using the mutagen and the Kraang-like powers of the Turtle's closest friend and Donatello's love interest, April O'Neil, whose mother and great-grandfather they experimented on before she was born. That way the Earth would become habitable for them and nothing else.
Since their natural bodies are weak and vulnerable, they pilot humanoid androids with cockpits built into their abdomens. The Turtles call these bodies Kraang-droids. They seem to only be able to speak in hisses and screeches in their natural state and can only communicate with humans through their robotic bodies. They have not mastered the English language yet and speak in a very redundant, repetitive manner, often leaving out descriptive nouns, despite being on Earth for thousands of years, pre-dating the advent of the English language. The only exceptions to this are Kraang Prime , Kraang Subprime , and Krang . Subprime, in particular, was visibly agitated by this on at least one occasion, chastising his fellow Kraang for this. When they must venture out in public, they disguise their robotic bodies in human like facades that make them look like identical men in neat black suits with blank facial expressions. In the episode The Pulverizer, it is first shown that the Kraang have upgraded their robot bodies with jetpacks, allowing them to fly. In the TRCI building, the Kraang have been seen piloting very small, quick hovercrafts armed with energy weapons.

- The Kraang are voiced by Nolan North, who voiced Raphael in the 2007 TMNT movie
- The Kraang on a few occasions will shout "exterminate!" when confronting their enemies. This may be a nod to the Daleks from long-running British science fiction television show Doctor Who, who would use this as their battle cry, and are famous for it.
