Title says it all. Is it ever debated that Donnie or even Raph is worse than him or is it widely accepted that Mickey is the worst?

He's the youngest, least intelligent, and is just generally shown to be the weakest of the bunch. That doesn't really mean he's useless though.

Leo > Raph > Donnie > Mikey.

No, in some instances like the 2003 cartoon.. he's actually the best. He just doesn't care to really try.

In multiple incarnations he's shown to be arguably the strongest of the group with the most potential who's just too lazy to train. I'd say he's above Donnie more often than not skill-wise regardless though.

Nah it's usually Donatello who's shown as the least impressive physically (he makes up in it with his brains obviously)

As others have said he's actually shown as the one with the most potential behind him, he just goofs off too much and doesn't take training as seriously as guys like Leo do

Not that familiar with the comics except a few issues here and there that I have read, so will go off of the cartoons here.

While he is the least skilled of the 4, I would honestly put him above Raph and Don thanks to his unpredictability. He isn't your usual fighter. I would say he is Deadpool to a lesser degree. He can do random stuff out of nowhere that catch the enemies off guard. However if he fight seriously, he would for the most part lose to them all.

Actually, I would say Mickey is probably stronger than Donnie, but he's just way less smarter.

As people have said already,Mikey has been stated and/or shown to be have the greatest potential but lacks the focus utilize ot fully on a regular basis.

Nah its Donnie.

Mikey is better than Donnie and on the same level of Raph in some cases he just gets too playful.

Leo is the best in most scenarios proven as he always has done the best against Shredder and splinter though a Raph not blinded by his temper is often not far behind.

I think its been the subject of numerous stories that Donnie isn't the best fighter but often gets a confidence boost when realizing without his tech savvy the team would never succeed

Hello there! I'm pretty sure that actually isn't the case. To my knowledge, Mikey is never shown, or said, to be the best fighter in the 2003 cartoon. He won the Battle Nexus tournament due to Leonardo getting poisoned early on and thus taken out of the contest, so he never actually fought Leo. Also, Mikey didn't defeat Raphael in the tourney because he was a better fighter; he tricked Raph into becoming angry and defeating himself by running headfirst into a wall and KO-ing himself. Still a victory over Raph, but it wasn't based on fighting skill or stats.

Skill-wise, it was pretty apparent to me throughout the majority of the 2003 series that Raph, and certainly Leo, were superior fighters. Leo was propped up to be the best fighter in TMNT 2003 by a country mile. None of the others could hold a candle to him by the end of the series.

I think he's better than Donatello, and just slightly below Raph, he seems weaker because he's goofy

Donatello is the weakest one in the team, not Mikey a little bit. Donny is the worst fighter that only relies on his intelligence.

Mikey isn’t that nature enough to realize his full potential but he can’t be the strongest.

Future versions would suggest he becomes the most wisest and enlighten one

Don - Least physically gifted, most intelligent

Mikey - The most gifted but trains the least

Raph - Physically gifted and highly aggressive

Leo - Trains the most

He's more skilled than Donnie, and while he's not as skilled as Leo and Raph, his unpredictability sometimes allows him to perform better than them.
