Favourite Girlfriend of Raphael?

For several incarnations of TMNT, our hot-headed Raphael has found certain love interests. This is your chance to choose your favourite.

Oroku Pimiko. No romance, just fighting and rivalry.

Lucindra had a lot of potential. We just didn't get enough of her.

Ninjara and Alopex are the same character with different fur colors and slightly different origins.

Mona Lisa and Mona Lisa are also the same character, just one is a mutant the other is an alien.

When he's right, he's right.

And he's right.

I vote OT Mona Lisa. I liked the dynamic of opposites attract between them and that she was as strong-willed in her own way as he is. I also liked her fun and affectionate personality as a foil to his sarcastic and hard-edged one.

Don't know much about Mona Lisa or the other one. I'm familiar with Alopex and Ninjara. I like Ninjara better (although I wish she didn't have the huge boobs). Alopex really has no personality. Ninjara stood up to Raph and even dumped him, so she was interesting.

How about your favourite girlfriend for Mike? Sara or Seri?

Seri. She's in-canon, she's Mirage original, and she has a clear backstory. Styracodon princess, not alien rape-child locked in a basement.

Hard choice for me between Ninjara and Alopex.
Design wise, Ninjara might be the most "attractive" because of how...shapely she is, but it doesn't make sense, and was probably done for the sake of fan service. Alopex's design makes sense, and is a good departure from the norm.
Character wise, Ninjara wins. She was more developed than Alopex has been, but that could change.

I dunno, Ninjara I guess?


(Also: I always look liked Sara. She was a good fit for Mikey. A shame things didn't pan out in the end.)

I think of Seri as being more Protoceraton, considering how small she is and that she doesn't have the big fancy frill or horns.

As for Raph girlfriend...none, at least for now.

Where's Mezcaal, Lucindra and Joy (If FW Mona Lisa is included as a girlfriend, Joy and Lucindra should as well)?

And damn, Raph sure is a playa uh? Guess it's that bad boy attitude of his, girls always think they can change him...

Oh and I vote Ninjara, I really love her, even after what she did to him.

OT Mona Lisa shouldn't even be there. It was never official or anything. Nick Mona Lisa, Ninjara, Mezcaal, etc., yeah.

I guess the thing he had with Ninjara was the only one that felt like an actual relationship.

FW's Mona Lisa only appeared in one episode, making you think it didn't really work out. With Nick's Mona Lisa she's living off world, "long distance". And with Alopex? Makes me think of toddlers trying to figure things out...

Nick Mona got no love

It does make we wonder about RaphLisa though, why it became such a fan favourite? Even though Mona Lisa only appeared in one episode of the FW cartoon. There's even fan art of Mona Lisa and 2k3 Raph together. I guess the shipping is just that popular.

You've really never see the original toon Mona Lisa ep after all these years? It's just one episode in Season 4.

Ninjara, easily. The Archie version is iconic to my childhood, and Ninjara is the one who had a real ongoing relationship with Raph that impacted the story line.

Mezcaal, Future Raph's wife, gets a mention too. I wish we saw more of her as she was pretty interesting.

I keep coming back to this but I can't decide.

I want to say Mona, though that's largely from being most familiar with her. But neither version is ever present long enough to be anything but a short fling and they never really have the opportunity to actually get to know each other. (Enough so that 2012 Mona just straight up betrayed him and the others instead of contacting them for help. Not exactly a deep connection...)

Interesting choice for a reptile, whom himself is more closely similar to humans, comparably speaking, but to each his own. Guess he likes fluffy ladies that can keep him warm at night. (Doesn't the shedding get old though? lol)

I don't have much patience for the OT... but also, since it was just one episode we don't have much to go on.

Mezcaal should probably have been included. She was cool. But Joy was like, hardly even romantic at all.

As for Michelangelo, he really had bad girlfriend luck. Both walked all over him. He needs to hold his own a bit better like Raphael.
