Martin Kratt is the older of the Kratt brothers, the main characters of Wild Kratts. Although he is the elder Kratt brother, Martin has a more playful side and is characterized by the color blue.
Martin wears hiking boots, khaki shorts, and a blue sweater with the zipper zipped all the way down and black stripes running across the sides, and the sleeves are rolled up. He has big blue eyes, tan skin, and sandy blond-brownish hair. He is taller than his younger brother, Chris.
Martin's theme color is blue.
Martin, like Chris, is playful, childish, comedic, and simply loves creatures. On the other hand, Martin is impulsive, overly optimistic, and tries to look like he is prepared, even though he sometimes is not. He loves taking risks, and he is easily distracted, sometimes forgetting that he is on a mission. He tries to be a "big brother" and "save" Chris from "danger". Martin loves to get into the mind of creatures. However, he does know when to be serious, and he makes a good teammate.
Martin works with his brother, Chris, and his friends to learn about animals and save them when necessary. He uses his animal knowledge, swimming skills, and creature powers to save the creature world. He also knows how to swim, water ski, snowboard, and "manta board". Martin dearly loves all animals, and he likes giving them names.
I think I'm going to name him The-big-strong-orange-guy-who-won't-let-us-get-back-to-the-tortuga.
