** The Shredder from the 2012 series thrives on being this, being able to destroy all four Turtles in battle in his initial appearance. Even three seasons later, the Turtles struggle to land so much as a single blow on him. He can even fight the combined might of the Turtles and Mutanimals and still put a hurting on all of them. Plus, he can take a brutal mauling from Leatherhead and get back from it almost a split second later to put the mutant crocodile down. And he can take out multiple Triceraton soldiers despite how durable and powerful they've been shown to be. And it really doesn't help that thus far, practically every season has ended with some sort of [[TheBadGuyWins villain victory]] for the Shredder where he gets the last laugh(season one), seriously injures one or more of the heroes(season two), or some combination thereof(season three).

%%* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Comes through now and then, usually hand-in-hand with his BigBrotherInstinct.
%%* TheLancer: Whilst not ''always'' the second in command (it's a toss up between him and Donatello) Raphael is consistently the foil to Leonardo's TheLeader, and if any Turtle ever strikes out on his own, it's Raph.

Given his it's generally assumed the Turtles' age-order is Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, Michaelangelo, it's not impossible that he is (or was at least raised as) one of the middle children. {{Lampshaded}} at least once a season in any franchise. Really taken home in the fourth movie when he takes on the alias of The Nightwatcher.

* BigBrotherInstinct: Most signoficantly to Michelangelo, especially in the comics. Somewhat in the 4Kids and Nickelodeon cartoons. Also applies to Donatello sometimes, and though not explicitly stated Raohael is generally taken to be the second oldest (it would certainly explain his antagonism towards Leo in various incarnations)
%%* TheBigGuy: Every time. In the Nickelodeon cartoon it's the most visually obvious as the four all have different builds. Raphael is the stockiest and most muscular.
* BloodKnight: Can slip into this at times.

* DependingOnTheWriter: A lot of tropes carry over between series, but some are fairly unique. Raphael is always the most cynical turtle. But he can range anywhere from being violent and sadistic, a sarcastic wisecracker and complainer, a meathead jock, brooding loner, or some combination of the above depends on the series and sometimes the story arc.
