Villain Overview

Lord Dregg is the overarching antagonist of the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series, serving as the main antagonist of the last two seasons. He is an evil alien overlord and is treated more seriously than the Shredder and Krang. He commands a large army of aliens.

He was voiced by the late Tony Jay, who also voiced Judge Claude Frollo, Shere Khan, the Transcendent One and Monsieur D'Arque.


Dregg has blue skin, glowing red eyes and sharp teeth. His head towers past his forehead in a black brace. He wears a purple suit and cape with a red and orange striped outfit underneath. His eyes glow brighter when he is either delighted or ragefully.


Dregg is proud of his forces and has a low tolerance for failure, even once blasting his loyal minion HiTech out of an airlock. At the same time, he sees others as disposable insects. However, Dregg respects bravery and arrogance, willing to go any length to achieve victory, and is a master manipulator, fooling the citizens of New York into believing that he's benevolent.

Dregg will hire mercenaries for ridiculously high prices or use last resorts to attack the Turtles. As noted by Mung, HiTech's replacement, Dregg has gone insane from the Turtles constantly foiling him; he becomes hyperfocused on revenge over moving on to a different planet to conquer.


Lord Dregg debuted in "The Unknown Ninja", where he arrived on his ship, the Dreggnaught, at Earth's solar system with his minions, The TechnoGang, and his second in command, HiTech. Dregg met the Turtles when he and his gang broke into the Federal Reserve Bank to steal the world's gold. The Turtles, however, foiled Dregg's plan thanks to their new friend Carter.

Dregg later manipulated the people of Earth into thinking that he was their savior so that he could rule the planet. He transformed dirty water into clean water to gain their blind trust. However, it was a machine that cleansed the water, not Dregg. The people built a tower in his honor. The Turtles still didn't believe him and confronted him. They destroyed Dregg's tower and Dregg fled the scene.

Eventually, Dregg constructed the Morphogenesis Exoskeleton and tricked five aliens that had successfully gone up against the Turtles into being absorbed into his suit, empowering him. He then targeted April to lure the Turtles out to finally destroy them. While Leonardo and Raphael tried to save April, Donatello and Michelangelo set out for the Technodrome to get Krang's android body.

After returning to Earth, the Turtles piloted the android body and seize Dregg with a special martial-arts technique that Splinter had taught them earlier. They pushed Dregg and the body through the portal to Dimension X, and Dregg was destroyed when the body self-destructed, ending his reign of terror once and for all.


  • Lord Dregg's name is a play on the word "dreg". This term refers to and is synonymous with sediment, dirt, soiled items, the least valuable parts of a thing, and very bad persons.
  • Dregg was created due to the fact that Power Rangers was changing their villain at the time.
  • Along with other characters from the Red Sky series, Dregg never got merchandise based on him.
