|~ Dragon Lord to Splinter on the latter's mutation.|
The Dragon Lord (also spelled Dragonlord) is the king of all dragons and an enemy of the Turtles. This character was specifically created for live action TV series Ninja Turtles: The Next Mutation, in which he serves as the main antagonist.
He was voiced by Christoper Gaze, and portrayed by Gerald Wong.
The Dragon Lord is the ruler of the Dragons, which had been trapped a long time ago in a different dimension. He and his Rank army were trapped in an enchanted glass and have now escaped. The world was once ruled by dragons, and he has emerged to reclaim what was originally his.
He is freed along with his Horde and has the ambition to dominate the world, resulting in conflicts with the Turtles.
First, he wants to destroy the Turtles, to freely implement his plans into action. He builds up his headquarters in New York City. Dragon Lord still doesn't understand some of the wonders of the outside world and can be amazed at little things like broomsticks.
He is amazed to see walking Turtles and wants to digest the same ingredients that made them mutants in the hopes that it will make him all powerful.
He is easily enraged even over the smallest things, such as being corrected. As an ally, he has the mad scientist Dr. Quease at his side, whose knowledge he wants to use for its own purposes. His personal sidekick is the little dragon Wick.
