Extra-Dimensional Enemies of Earth
Purple as Droid
Yellow as Kraang
The Kraang could not 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 up to no good. Stay tuned - Nick
HistoryThe Kraang are multi-tentacled brain-creatures who’ve come from another dimension to colonize Earth. 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 this way so that it becomes habitable by them and nothing else. According to this years NYC Coimic Con, they have been on Earth for more than 1,000 years.
Since their natural bodies are weak and vulnerable, they pilot humanoid androids with cockpits built into their abdomens. The turtles call these bodies Kraangdroids. 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 haven't mastered the english language yet and speak in a very redundant, repetitive manner, often leaving out descriptive nouns. 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 empty staring eyes. In the episode The Pulverizer, it is first shown that the Kraang have upgraded their Kraangdroids with jetpacks, allowing them to fly. In the TRCI building, the Kraang were seen piloting small, quick hovercrafts armed with energy weapons.
