In Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Honey Badger is a bass guitarist in the band DIGG who was mutated into a honey badger.

Physical Appearance

Honey Badger is a mutant honey badger with a dark grey body, long straight grey hair styled in a mullet, orange sclerae and teeth, and a muscular figure. She has sharp teeth that protrude from her upper jaw, grey hair on her forearms, five maroon claws on each hand, and three maroon claws on each foot. She wears a fitted black crop top under a torn turquoise crop top, torn purple leather pants, and a pair of black studded belts. She also wears black spiked wristbands, a black studded garter on her right leg, a black studded choker around her neck, and matte steel blue lipstick.


Honey Badger is intimidating and seems to enjoy scaring others with her frightful appearance and animalistic behavior, often running on all fours and growling.


Honey Badger debuted in "Pizza Pit". DIGG tried to strategically detonate four support pillars in order to submerge a stadium so they could play to a captive audience. Unfortunately, the four pillars happened to be under the Ninja Turtles' favorite pizza parlors, leading the brothers to believe DIGG had a personal vendetta against them. Upon learning DIGG's actual plan, they convinced them to play as the in-house band of the new Bro's Pizza pizzeria, which had been opened by all four proprietors of the previous pizzerias.

Honey Badger performed with the rest of her band at the Grand Nexus Hotel in "Bullhop".

Honey Badger and her band played at the Salt Rock Club in "Cloak and Swaggart".
