Oh, there's an infinite amount of hope, but not for us!
— Mock Turtle to Alice[2]

The Mock Turtle is as tearful as ever, with somewhat of a stereotypical geeky voice and briefs under his shell.

Biography Edit

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Edit

Alice encountered the Mock Turtle with the Gryphon. He told Alice his history of going to school in the sea, but cannot understand the school system that Alice described to him – least of all the poetry she recited. Ironically, she cannot understand it either. It was a pun on the two meanings of "school", referring in the turtle's usage to a school of fish or marine animals, and by Alice to an institute of learning. He said the teacher was an old Sea Turtle called Tortoise and when Alice asked him why he was called Tortoise if he was a Turtle the Mock Turtle answered, "We called him tortoise because he taught us!".

American McGee's Alice Edit

Pool of Tears - Mock Turtle

Alice encountered the Mock Turtle again while searching for the White Rabbit in the Vale of Tears.[3] He was as lachrymose as ever, having narrowly escaped becoming the Duchess' dinner but losing his shell in the process to her. He was willing to help Alice find Caterpillar, who would know of the White Rabbit, in exchange for his shell.

After the Duchess was killed[4] and his belongings returned, the Mock Turtle guided Alice through Wholly Moral Ground to Dry Landing, where, upon arrival, he made her into an honorary reptile, allowing her to breathe underwater.[5]

When Wonderland was restored to its peace, he appeared with Alice in the final scene.

Alice: Madness Returns Edit

The Mock Turtle had once been the stationmaster of the Train on the Looking Glass Railway, but was dismissed from his job after the Dormouse and March Hare commandeered the Mad Hatter's factory.[6]

Alice discovered the HMS Gryphon in the end of Tundraful with the captain in it. He quickly told her to get into the ship and commented on their doomed fate. As the Shipwreck Sharks continued to attack the bottle, the Mock Turtle woefully exclaimed that the beasts want his ship. Although Alice suggested he was more of their taste, the captain denied the statement and had even gone as far with saying that the beasts were almost his relatives.[2]

Alice wryly rebutted that he was related to soup. The captain then voiced his idea that they attend Carpenter's show, stating that "what they do not take seriously cannot harm them". After noticing the growing crevice in the bottle, Alice thought that it would be best to dive before they become lunch.[2]

Along the way, a Shipwreck Shark set the ship off course and sent it crashing to various rocks through Deluded Depths.[7] With his ship a wreck, Mock Turtle felt the same as well and Alice tried her best to console him. She inquired about the Infernal Train although he evaded the question by saying to change the subject. He then told her to ask Caterpillar about the Train and urged her to attend Carpenter's show and gave her a ticket.[6]

Trivia Edit

One of the larger snow globes.

  • There is a snow globe of the Mock Turtle seen in a few places in the game, such as in the Vale of Tears[8] and London.[9]
  • The Mock Turtle's appearance in Alice: Madness Returns is inspired by a painting by Ken Wong titled The Mock Turtle's Story.
  • Originally, the Mock Turtle was to guide Alice during the HMS Gryphon mini-game. He would tell her when they were taking too much damage, when to fire cannons and to watch out for mines.[10]
  • Fellipe Martins confirmed that Mock Turtle was not an admiral yet when he received the dismissal letter,[11] indicating that the shoulder pads and medals should not have been included in the final animation.
