In the IDW continuity, Poly-95480, also known as Polly, is a mutated member of the Polyglot species on the Dimension X planet Totus. Totus has an integrated ecosystem which allows every creature on it to function as one organism. However, Krang used the heart of Totus' jungle to conduct experiments, mutating the species residing there. The mutants were ostracized by the rest of the planet, as their mutations rendered them incapable of functioning as part of the collective. The Turtles convinced Totus to let Polly be the planet's ambassador and act as a witness during Krang's trial, as no other creatures on that world could leave Totus.
Polly accompanied the Turtles back to Neutrino, where she was prepared to testify about Krang's atrocities. However, she was never actually able to testify, as the Malignoids swarm attacked during the trial. Donatello concocted a plan to drive away the Malignoids by distributing Polly's hallucinogenic, painful pollen on the hive ship, which depleted her and left her unconscious until she could be returned to Totus.
