Rocksteady used his sledgehammer to crush Donatello’s shell, but he did not die right away. Angel Bridge came along to find the crashed Turtle and attempted to help, but she could not, and surprise, surprise — Donatello passed away.
Writers Tom Waltz and Kevin Eastman, who is the co-creator of TMNT, has committed to a plan to make the Turtles more grounded in reality. Usually, the word “grounded” is mostly used by DC and Warner Bros., but now it appears others are taking notice and going this route with their comics.

However, the plan backfired, with both parties discovering they had been tricked, and Shredder ordered Donatello to be killed. Donatello was savagely beaten and his shell was broken by the mutants Bebop and Rocksteady, who left him for dead. While his family grieved for him, Honeycutt discovered a faint pulse and managed to stabilize Donatello’s badly broken body, even as he transferred the Turtle’s soul into the Metalhead robot. Donatello struggled to get used to his strange new existence, even as Honeycutt and Lillja worked to heal his body and reunite body and soul.

In the fourth season, during an outbreak of mutations of people and animals in New York, Don got a nasty gash by a monster while fighting several monsters with his brothers. Then in the episode “Return of Savanti Romero” Don ended up coming down with the sniffles. Later in the episode “Adventures in Turtlesitting”, he went from a turtle who was home ill with the flu to a monster himself as a result. A similar situation happened with Raphael in the comics.
In the first three live action films, Donatello, like Leonardo, is arguably less mature than he was in the original comics and the 1987 animated series, as he is shown joking around more. The first movie never officially identifies Donatello as the group’s resident “whiz kid”, though he is occasionally shown tinkering with various devices and is seen to have a vast knowledge of obscure topics (he is shown to be a master at ‘Trivial Pursuit’ when playing against the other Turtles and later astutely labels Casey Jones a claustrophobic). He takes his time deciding on the most appropriate victory cheers, though his choices are sometimes quite perplexing (for example, “Bossa Nova!”). However, the second film clearly established Donatello as the most scientifically-minded turtle as well as the most introspective, feeling dejected when he learns that the ooze that created the Turtles only exists because of an accident, although Splinter consoles his dejection by pointing out that the circumstances of their origins cannot define their present worth.

It was said that this would be a live-action and CGI hybrid, for this new film.
Kevin Eastman: Well, it was really because, when you come up with a title like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, it was really a parody, going off all sorts of popular ideas in comics at that time. So when you’re working in an environment that’s sort of silly and bizarre, you couldn’t traditionally name them, like what, Steve, Bob, Mike and Doug? It didn’t seem to be as funny so both Peter and I were both art history fans, so how about naming them Renaissance painters? It both made us laugh, so it stuck. We got Leonardo, Michelangelo and Raphael and we searched around for the last one and, Donatello was almost named for one of my favorite sculptors, but it didn’t have that “o” at the end and then it was like, ‘What’s wrong with Donatello?” He was an amazing sculptor as well, so that fit, it seemed to all make the silliest of sense.

In the 2014 Michael Bay produced movie, their shells are perhaps the largest we have seen.
Red-eared Sliders are the most popular pet turtles in the U.S., so it would make sense that the Turtles are the same breed, since they were originally pets.
