This World Turtle Day, Here Are Our Favourite Turtles in Video Games

Turtles are so amazing that they have their own special day.

Today is World Turtle Day. It’s not just about having fun and admiring these beautiful shelled creatures: it’s about promoting the conservation of turtles and their disappearing habitats around the world. Read more about World Turtle Day here.

But we are a video game website. What do turtles have to do with us? Well, turtles are in video games, of course. Not many of them. But enough. These are our favorite video game turtles. Happy World Turtle Day!


1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Kowabunga! These green guys need no introduction, of course. They have been featured in many video games over the years, both good and bad. The less we talk about Mutants in Manhattan, the better. But there’s one game ahead that we can’t wait for: Shredder’s Revenge. Hopefully it will bring these guys back to the peak of their video game careers.

2. Bowser from the Super Mario series

It’s kind of hard to see Bowser as a turtle. He’s Bowser. Turtles are cute; Bowser is big, evil and fiery. But think about it: he has a shield on his back. What else could he really be? We’re not sure if he’d appreciate being called a turtle, but we still think he deserves a place on this list of the best video game turtles. Bowser, we salute you. Enjoy this day, brother.

3. Squirtle from the Pokémon series

There are several turtle-like Pokémon out there. But Squirtle has to be our favorite. Just look at him. He’s cute. And he’s undeniably a turtle, too. The cutest video game turtle there has ever been.

4. Aurora from Roguebook

This one is a bit obscure, but Aurora from Roguebook undoubtedly deserves a place on this list of the best video game turtles. She’s the one on the left in the picture, if you couldn’t see it. And she has some serious powers hidden in her shell. You will only appreciate the wonder of this turtle if you have played Roguebook. (And if you haven’t played Roguebook yet, check it out.)

5. Bentley from the Sly Cooper series

Only in video games would a raccoon have a turtle as a sidekick. But anyone who’s played the Sly Cooper series knows that Bentley is much more than a sidekick. Without him Sly Cooper would be nothing; he is the brain of the operation. This nerdy turtle puts together Sly’s plans and makes sure everything runs smoothly. He’s a super geek and that’s why we love him.
