Deano’s answer to: “Which Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle has the most physical strength?”

All of the turtles are, for their comic universe, quite incredibly strong, with additional “supporting strengths” of high endurance and physical durability.

That said, the most consistent references/occurrences of high physical strength and/or “overall strongmanosity” seem to be in favor of Raphael.

The combination of his rage/anger management issues, and propensity to lunge for the center of the fight, gives Raph more opportunities to use direct brute force/strength, instead of the more subtle, tactically-sound techniques of his brothers.

Still, barring Raphael’s strength stats in later TMNT video games, or various semi-official or fan-sourced expressions of the various turtles’ might in various RPG systems[*] there is very little hard data one way or another.
