— Michelangelo

Michelangelo, alongside the other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael, battled the Renaissance Artists in Artists vs TMNT. He was voiced by both Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD; he was physically portrayed by Lloyd, with Xin Wuku as his stunt double. Furthermore, he appeared in Dis Raps For Hire - Season 2 Episode 10: Brandon as a cameo, in which he was also portrayed by Lloyd.

Information on the rapper

Michelangelo is the youngest member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, who is known for his playful attitude and orange bandana. He uses a pair of nunchaku (or nunchucks) in battle, as they are his weapon of choice. He is more fun-loving than his other brothers. He is also known for his famous catchphrase, "Cowabunga!" He is named after the Renaissance artist, Michelangelo Buonarroti.


[Note: Michelangelo is in orange, while Leonardo, Donatello, and Raphael are in regular text. All turtles rapping at the same time is italicized.]

Verse 1:

The wisdom of our master (Splinter)

Taught us not to rush to violence, (Master Splinter)

But our master (Master Splinter)

Ain't here, dude! (Heeyah!)

I don't think you wanna mess with my katana blades!

Get back in your floppy helicopter, fly away!

I can Bebop and Steadyrock a mic, sucka!

I'm a pristine Sistine nun chucka!

(Uh!) Oh hi, I'm a cool but rude guy!

Put you back in school with the tip of my two sai!

(Uhhh…) Dona-tell me who you are again, dude,

'Cause I don't Gattamelata clue what you do.

Verse 2:

Yo, go ahead and hate. We'll just skate on by!

You guys draw more dicks than New York pride!

We're the TMNT, drop-kicking Italy! (Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!)

Chowing on your tower made of pizza! Save a slice for me!


  • When Michelangelo said "Ain't here, dudes!", the three Turtles behind him had red masks. This is most likely a reference to the original Mirage comics, where all four Turtles wore red masks instead of their current iconic colors.
    • In the same line, he is voiced by Nice Peter instead of EpicLLOYD, like the rest of the battle.
      • This makes him the second rapper to be voiced by more than one person, after Nikola Tesla.
