2. Splinter – Rat
This is another great name for an older, wiser rat. Splinter was the leader of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He trained them and guided them as they grew into the lean, green fighting machines of the series.
More importantly, Splinter also taught the turtles’ respect, courage, and kindness. Splinter is as tough as nails when he needs to be, but also exceptionally kind and selfless.
