Rahzar was a mutant Gray Wolf minion of the Shredder and cohort to Tokka. He first appeared in the 1991 film Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Rahzar was played by Mark Ginther. They were both voice-acted by Frank Welker
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze
When The Shredder found out that the substance that mutated the Turtles had been created by TGRI (Techno-Global Research Industries), he sent his Foot Soldiers to steal the ooze and kidnap head TGRI scientist, Professor Jordan Perry. Shredder instructs Perry to use the ooze to mutate an Alligator Snapping Turtle and a Gray Wolf, kidnapped from the Bronx Zoo, thus creating Tokka and Rahzar. However, Jordan had secretly altered the mutagen, and as a result, the two mutants had the intelligence of human infants. Saki ordered the monsters to face him in battle, to teach them who their master was, the infantile mutants misinterpreted the word "master", thinking it meant "mamma" and hugged him instead. Angered, Shredder ordered them to be destroyed, but Perry had sympathy for them and showed Saki their total obedience to him and that, as they were "playing" in the junkyard, lifting a large truck as if it were a toy, they had great strength. This prompted Shredder to keep them alive.
Despite their low intelligence, the two mutants' incredible physical strength and intimidating demeanor made them more than a match for the Turtles. On their first encounter at Shredder and Tatsu's junkyard base, the Turtles were ill-prepared and barely managed to escape when trying to save their brother Raphael from capture and rescue Dr. Perry. April was confronted by the Foot with a message for the Turtles: If they didn't meet the Foot at a construction site near the docks, Shredder would set Tokka and Rahzar out again into Central Park. As many people would get hurt, The Turtles and Splinter agreed that there was no other choice but to face Shredder. But the professor had a plan; with the help of Donatello and Keno, Dr. Perry prepared an anti-mutagen to de-mutate Tokka and Rahzar, which had to be ingested.
During their second encounter at the construction site, amidst a distraction, Leonardo and Michaelangelo trick Tokka and Rahzar into eating the antidote (they froze the concoction into ice cubes and then hid them in a box of donuts, which they then offered to the two mutants as the "ritual of the traditional pre-fight donut"). Rahzar and Tokka devoured some of the donuts with continued coaxing from the Turtles. Surprisingly, Rahzar, regardless of his infant-like mentality, figured that something was wrong with the situation, and crushed one of the donuts in his claw, to discover the anti-mutagen cube. Enraged, Tokka and Rahzar smashed Michaelangelo through a wall and into the Dockshore Club interrupting a crowded dance concert by Vanilla Ice.
As the final showdown commenced at the club; Leo and Raph were fending off Rahzar and Tokka's snapping attacks. Dr. Perry informed them that their repeated burping was slowing the anti-mutagen and that carbon dioxide was needed to speed up the demutation. The Turtles knocked their foes flat on their backs and shoved fire extinguishers into the creatures' mouths, which administered the needed carbon dioxide. Finally, the antidote took effect and the two mutants returned to their animal forms. What happened to them after this is unknown. (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze)
1987 TV series
Toka and Razar only appeared once in the seventh season of the 1987 cartoon series. In 1993, they were featured in the season 7 episode Dirk Savage: Mutant Hunter. Razar and Toka were two of the out-of-control mutants created after Shredder unleashed mutagen at a zoo years earlier (whether this refers to when he created Bebop and Rocksteady or Groundchuck and Dirtbag, is not made clear). They were first seen terrorizing Crystal Palace mall when the Turtles showed up. The animated versions were more intelligent and more eloquent, particularly Razar. Razar states to Toka, "...You are my only friend." Razar destroyed Leonardo's katana and threw him across the mall. When the Turtles almost captured Toka, he destroyed a pillar and the pair managed to escape. Later that night, they found some food and began to eat. Unfortunately, it was a trap set up by Dirk Savage to capture the duo and Tokka was captured. Razar managed to avoid capture and escape from Savage, vowing to make the human pay. Later on, he attacked Savage, but was stopped by Raphael and Donatello. Even though Razar made a big deal of his friend being captured, and he was shown attacking Dirk later on, it was never shown if he ever got reunited with Toka, even after the bad guys were defeated. Their look in the cartoon was very much like that of their action figures, made two years prior to their toon appearance. In this episode, his name was spelled Razar. Razar was voiced by Townsend Coleman.
Rahzar and Tokka were bosses in the Video games Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. Tokka and Rahzar are in both versions of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time. In the original arcade version, they are the bosses of the pirate ship level, while in the Super NES version, they have been moved to the new Technodrome level.
They are paired together as a double-boss. They can team up in their attacks in the SNES version; one of their moves involves Tokka withdrawing into his shell and Rahzar hopping on top and riding around the screen chaotically like a skateboard. Their low intelligence from the movie is also included in the game: they will often accidentally hit each other instead of the player, and will take damage for it. Just like in the movie, when the player defeats them in the game, they de-mutate to normal animals. It is possible to attack Rahzar after he has de-mutated. He makes a 'Yelp' sound. Also, in the game, their names have the spelling of the movie, not the later spelling of the TV show. The Super NES version borrows a quote from the movie which Tokka and Rahzar said, right before the fight: "Master say have fun." "FUN!" In the movie, they say this when they're tearing up a backstreet to lure the Turtles into a confrontation. Rahzar also made an appearance in the NES game Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project. Rahzar appears in the Technodrome level immediately before Shredder, and uses an ice breath attack. Also, in this game Rahzar's name is spelled Rahzer. Rahzar returns to the role in the 2009 -Turtles in Time remake for Xbox LIVE Arcade and PlayStation Network. In The Manhattan Project Rahzar has ice breath, and curiously has fire breath in the Super Nintendo Version of Turtles in Time.
Tokka and Rahzar appear in 4Kids' 25th anniversary direct-to-DVD special, Turtles Forever. A unique twist on the infamous pairing as they are depicted as Cyber Foot Ninja, underlings under Ch'rell the Utrom Shredder. Having overtaken then the Technodrome from the 1987 TMNT cartoon dimension he has also taken control over the utilization of the Mutagen in Krang's reserves. A vast amount of Ch'rell's army are turned into mutants for his disposal against the Turtles. Rahzar himself is among the first of the loyal Foot transformed onscreen. Tokka and Rahzar attack the TMNT teams in the Party Wagon but get pummeled and knocked out by the vehicles fire power.
