The Giant Rats were created by the Rat King using a growth serum mixed with mutagen so he could kidnap humans for his experiments.

Just like Splinter, who named his turtles based on his favorite Italian Renaissance artists, the Rat King has given names of roman emperors to a few of his loyal giant rats such as:

  • Caligula - "Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus", was the Rat King's mount.
  • Claudius - "Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus"
  • Nero - "Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus"
  • Commodus - "Marcus Aurelius Commodus Antoninus Augustus"

According to the concept art the giant rats measure about 12 feet long with their tail.
