Dirtbag is a mole who was mutated by Bebop and Rocksteady accidentally during a trip to the zoo.
Groundchuck was created during the same zoo accident as his best friend dirtbag. It goes without saying that whatever zoo has a bull and mole exhibit is clearly not taking their job seriously.
Baxter was already fairly evil before he turned into a fly in a teleportation accident (a common occurrence in the '80s). He was pretty insane, but he did invent the MOUSERS, which are cool, and his van was turned into the turtle van.
Leatherhead was just a common sewer alligator until he swam through some ooze and turned into a Cajun survivalist. He likes to make guarantees.

The Rat King

Tokka and Rahzar
Tokka and Rahzar are a snapping turtle and wolf mutated by Bebop and Rocksteady and later captured by Dirk Savage: Mutant Hunter. At one point, during their captivity, Rahzar says to Tokka, "You are my only friend," which is just incredibly poignant.
SlashDimension X DonatelloCrasherTerrorpin
