Kraang are an extraterrestrial species that feature in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
The Kraang were an extraterrestrial race whose origins were tied to that of the Utroms. Originally, the Utrom's were a peaceful civilization who all were individuals that lived as a people for millions of nextons. This was until one of their scientists named Kraang discovered Mutagen from the Kraathatrogon Worms. Exposure to the substance caused him to become deranged where he adopted the identity of Kraang Prime after which he used his terrifying psychic powers to overcome the minds of millions of Utroms. The entirety of the species were then transformed into slave-copies of himself leading to the formation of the Kraang race. Many Utrom's came to resist Kraang Prime's control but in time no less that a hundred managed to exist free. (Episode: The War For Dimension X)
It was said that the entire reasoning behind them invading other planets was to escape the Triceratons rather than fight their fight. Thus, the Kraang adopted a strategy of avoiding their powerful enemy. (Episode: The War For Dimension X)
