Despite being the slowest of his tribe, Torts still enjoys running around and goofing off. Often with a huge smile on his face, Torts is a very cheerful Mixel. He makes friends easily and enjoys cute things, and is always jolly and ready to cheer everyone up.
Torts is mostly lime green in color. His body also acts as his head and is slightly tube-like in shape. There are darker green stripes on his sides and a green spine on his back. He has two dark green antenna- or pigtail-like protrusions on the top of his head. He has a nose-like beak and eyes on each side. In his mouth are two fangs that point downwards. Attached to his sides are two black sleeve-like objects that hold the slime that is part of his hands. His legs are grey, short, and bowed. His feet are large lime geometric shapes with darker green rectangles on their insides.
Torts can shoot gloopy, green slime from his hands. The goo can stick to the ground, causing a sticky pool that sticks Nixels to the ground.
Calling All Mixels
- Ooze Pool: Form a large pool of slime, dealing damage to any enemies caught in it.
- Slippery Slide: Snare enemies in a line of slime, then slide into them, knocking them back.
- Fountain of Slime: Spin rapidly in place, shooting massive amounts of slime.
Little is known about Torts' early life.
At a party, he managed to get kidnapped by the Nixels, and had to be rescued to help rescue the other Mixels. ("Calling All Mixels")
He was seen adoring Scorpi until Glurt scared him. Later on, after Scorpi and Glurt Murped, he and the rest of the Glorp Corp and Spikels chased after the Murp. He Mixed with Footi to try and catch the Murp, but the Murp slimed them off. After Glomp and Hoogi failed to capture the Scorpi & Glurt Murp, he skipped away and the others went to the Magic Tent. He and the rest then climbed the rafters to see the Murp on the other side of the rafters. Before Glomp could say they were out of Cubits, Mesmo showed up with a Rainbow Cubit. He and Mesmo Mixed and successfully captured the murp. However, Magnifo's trick broke the rafters and all of them fell into Magnifo's top hat. He and Mesmo split, along with the Scorpi & Glurt Murp, forming an inverted pyramid that ended up toppling onto Magnifo. ("Murp Romp")
Torts Maxed with his Glorp Corp brothers to help Footi fend off a swarm of Nixels. ("Glorp Corp Max")
Torts managed to break his leg, leaving him immobile in bed while others had fun outside. He Mixed with Scorpi to join the others. ("Scorpi & Torts Mix")
When Glomp was sick with a cold, Torts tried to help cheer his brother up. ("Glomp's Gooey, Sneezy Cold!")
Torts was one of almost all of the Mixels who searched and fought for the Mixamajig, and then captured by King Nixel. He Maxed with his branch of the Glorp Corp in order to defeat him, and Mixopolis was revealed by the Weldos soon after. ("A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig")
