While all Ninja Turtles are selectable in most stages of TMNT (Game Boy Advance), Raphael is the obligatory player character in stages 1 and 3, as they represent his escapades as Nightwatcher. At the beginning of both stages, he appears briefly in his Nightwatcher armor, on his motorcycle. Within second, a puff of smoke appears, and he changes into his basic turtle look for the rest of the stage.
In the console, PC, PSP, and DS games, Raphael as Nightwatcher is a playable character in some missions. He plays differently from Raphael, although he uses sai like Raph, instead of the manriki-gusari that he uses most often in the film. Instead of building up a "Star Meter" like the four standard Turtles, he has a "Rage Meter". The Rage Meter does not deplete when Nightwatcher is hit, and is triggered by a button press. When this is triggered, Nightwatcher screams in anger, damaging all foes on the screen. He then goes into a state like as if he had filled a Star Meter, which wears off only when the button is pressed again, or his meter runs out.
He appears in TMNT: Smash Up as a playable character, with Frank Frankson reprising his role from the 2003 series. The Nightwatcher also makes an appearance as a separate playable character. It is seen in Raphael's ending that Casey Jones is in the turtle's base looking for Raph but can't find him. Then Casey stands still and says "Oh Yeahhh". The scene then reveals Raph is in the Nightwatcher suit above ground.
