Official Description

''Call me the Shredder. I have trained in the ways of Ninjustsu for my entire life and I have sharpened my skills to the highest level. An old enemy of mine, Splinter, is hiding in New York City and training a peculiar band of ninjas. The time has come to pay all of them a visit, and nothing will keep me from my revenge. Nothing. Or so I thought.''

- Shredder


Shredder is the leader of the Foot Clan and is a master in Ninjitsu. He wishes to destroy Splinter and the Turtles along with his mutant henchman. He's cruel, heartless, and doesn't care about anyone but himself. He is covered in razor blades making him seem scary to attack. He's one of the Turtles' most feared and toughest opponents.


Oroku Saki was came into an infamous ninja clan called monastery made by a rival clan ,The Hamatos, left the en Oroku was saved from the wreckage by the Hamato Clan's leader, who took him in to be raised as his son alongside his other son and heir, Hamato Yoshi, whom Oroku enrolled with in the same Martial Arts school as brothers (and often rivals) for over 30 years. One day, however, this rivalry escalated when the two of them fell in love with a beautiful young woman named Tang Shen, who only seemed to begin bonding with Hamato. Oroku became overwhelmed and fraught with jealousy that he soon learned of his true heritage and rebuilt the Foot Clan as the clan leader his biological family dreamed he would be, dubbed "The Shredder." But in order to get revenge on Hamato and his family for hiding his real past, he broke into the Hamato Clan monastery and demanded Shen to hand Hamato over to him. When she refused, Shredder fought Hamato and burned down the residence, killing Shen and scarring most of his own face. However, Shredder did not leave the brutal scene without stealing Hamato and Shen's infant daughter, Miwa. Hamato, still alive, screamed at Shredder as he was walking away, but he was not able to see that Miwa was in his arms, being adopted as an heir to Oroku's place as Foot Clan leader, renamed Karai.

Fifteen years later, Shredder has still been hunting down Hamato, now dubbed Splinter, and his 4 new pupils, who are now mutant Ninja Turtles.

Season 1

In Rise of the Turtles, Part 2, in Japan, Shredder saw a television news bulletin from America in which it shows how 'Ninjas' are operating in New York. As the bulletin continued, he caught a glimpse of a shuriken with Yoshi's insignia. Now realizing that of his 'old nemesis' still alive, Saki dons his helmet and leads the Foot to America where he intends to visit his, 'old friend'.

Season 2

For the first half of the season, Shredder went off to Japan to collect a secret weapon to help him kill Splinter and the Turtles. When he finally returned, he revealed that secret weapon to be Tiger Claw, who he makes his new second in command

Season 3

In season 3, Shredder developed worms that could control the minds of others and used one on Karai to manipulate her. In the finale Shredder ambushed Splinter to his death when the Triceratons invaded earth.

Season 4

When the turtles returned back to earth help stop the invasion of the Triceratons once again and Splinter caught Shedder about to ambush him, Shredder revealed he's angry at him for Karai leaving, leading Splinter to defeat him. After mutation medications to his injuries and his ego getting worse, he became a mutation of a monster and he eventually killed Splinter. By the finale, Leo manages to slaughter Shredder.

Season 5



As a human

In this version, the Shredder is slim but tall, muscular and toned with bigger and bulkier prongs on his shiny chrome-plated armor. He still remains keeping the shoulder, arm, and leg gauntlets, with his hand 'claws' merged with the arm gauntlets and wears a violet cape. Unlike most incarnations, this version of the Shredder has a horrid wound going down the right side and bottom of his face, which he received when he attacked Yoshi in his home and ignited a huge fire (presumably). He once had black hair and a completely natural face, but he also lost both of these aspects during the fire. He now suffers from severe burns, though he is still surprisingly competent as a fighter. It is still debatable whether or not he lost the sight of his right eye in the fire, as it is now blood red with just a blue iris in the middle of it.

As Super Shredder, his body underwent hideous disfigurement after being injected with Mutagen. His helmet has also fused with his head; its own blades becoming longer and spikier and its frontal mask resembling a human skull's face. He also has ten Mutagen cores on his forehead, two thin nostrils, glowing green eyes; which are bloodshot, and his teeth and gums are visible under his Kuro Kabuto. Hanging around from the back area of his head, Super Shredder has a torn piece of his purple robe that acts like his helmet's shikoro. His skin has a few areas with a peach-orange hue, purple, and reddish-pink hue with a few swollen areas and Mutagen veins (around the chest, arms, and spikes). His body has become more muscular with metal blades sticking out of almost every part of his body, as a few silver, metallic spikes that pop out from his chest that look like ribs. On each of his shoulders, he has three spikes emerging from the skin, as well has three spikes on each of his arms. His fingers are covered in metal that have sharp fingertips (like claws) and sharp knuckles. Around the knuckles for each of his hands, he has two retractable, steel claws that are longer than his fingers. On his back, he has three spikes on his spine that are unequal in length. In the center of his chest, he has a big exposed beating heart with a purplish-blue hue that is surrounded with Mutagen veins. The only clothing he wears now are his tattered pants, bandages wrapped around his clawed feet. Hanging from his shoulder spikes, Super Shredder, has a tattered cape.


The Shredder is known for fighting with reckless ferocity, showing little mercy to anyone who stands between him and his conquest. Even though he finds himself within a city swarming with various mutant creatures and aliens from different Dimensions, the Shredder generally views it all as nothing but a distraction from his ultimate goal; his vendetta against Hamato Yoshi. Even with the coming of the end of the world, the Shredder is only concerned with taking revenge on Yoshi, after which nothing else mattered to him. The world and everything on it can be destroyed for all he cared so long as he struck down his adopted brother. He once seemed to care about Hamato's biological daughter Miwa, aka Karai, yet he still considers to be nothing but a trophy gained by one of his initial victories. But, after Karai realizes just how dishonorable the Shredder is, he figures that she barely serves a purpose anymore and has Tiger Claw lock her up in a Dungeon. However, after Karai is accidentally mutated because of himself, the Shredder does become slightly sad, but doesn't take responsibly for his own actions. The Shredder is even wicked enough to tell Miwa lies about her mother's death in order to make her believe that Splinter was the one responsible for it.

The Shredder's immense capacity for hatred seems to stem from an inability to accept his own failures and bad actions as just misfortune and mistakes. Instead he seems to need someone to blame everything on; shown when he blames Splinter for Tang Shen's death, despite being the one who initiated the assault that took her life, and blaming him again for Karai's mutation, despite having put the girl in danger in the first place. Saki is utterly convinced that Splinter is the cause for all the suffering and misfortune he endures, and considers anyone linked to Splinter to be just as guilty. He believes that anyone who has contributed to his misfortunes should pay with their lives.

The Shredder is also known for his disdain and intolerance towards failure, as he has scolded and threatened his henchmen Chris ''Rahzar'' Bradford, Xever ''Fishface'' Montes, and Baxter Stockman for being incapable of fulfilling his designated desires at some points; primarily where the turtles and Splinter are concerned. This seems to extend to his own failings, as when he first fought (and defeated) the turtles, because he was distracted by the mutation of Bradford and Montes, he was not able to finish them off due to their stealthily escaping him; much to his dismay. This seems to happen consistently, as in Wormquake!, he expressed rage when Leo, Raph, and Mikey managed to save Splinter from his wrath and escape his sight and vehemently commanded his underlings to follow them. He later displayed aggravation in Return to New York when the turtles, April, Casey, and the mentally restored Splinter managed to again escape his sight. Also, in Serpent Hunt, when Shredder once again overpowered the turtles, Leo manages to outsmart him by throwing smoke bombs in his face so that he and his brothers could escape once more; which causes the Shredder to become furious (especially when the turtles' actions are what resulted in Serpent Karai's own escape).

During his recovery, Shredder started believing his own lies about his and Splinter's relationship to the point where he actually believed that Splinter killed Tang Shen and that Karai was his daughter who was brainwashed against him--beliefs that Karai and Splinter call him out on--driving himself more insane than before and becoming more obsessed with destroying Splinter and getting his "daughter" back from him. This resulted in him sacrificing his humanity by having himself mutated so he could use his greater mutant form to kill Splinter and his family. Later on he trained himself to feel no emotion or attachment to anyone, to the point that he did not even have any qualms about killing Karai, whom he raised as his own, and very nearly succeeded killing, and mocking Tang Shen's death, all just to get back at Splinter.

Abilities, Skills and Weaponry

As Shredder

Ninjutsu: As a master of ninjutsu, his skills are very high, beyond what most other ninja could reach, since he has been training for years and has learned forbidden ninjutsu arts. So far he is able to easily defeat all of the turtles, and duel for long, brutal periods against Splinter, who has skills that are equal (he did defeat him twice, once as a human and the second time as mutant). He even knows a forbidden skill that is so clever and effective that it surprised even Splinter (when he was still going by "Hamato Yoshi" in Japan).

Peak Human Strength: His abilities are quite amazing for a human to have. He has shown that he has immense strength, and is much stronger then the average person as he can lift Splinter's weight with only one arm. He was even strong enough to battle large mutants like Leatherhead in a short, but brutal fight; as he was strong enough to injure him. He has shown that he is able to push around heavy mutations like Dogpound or Rocksteady (although, this may be via technique rather than strength). By himself, he was able to overpower and defeat both the turtles and their allies the Mighty Mutanimals leaving them all downed and wounded.

Peak Human Speed and Agility: Despite being a man of considerable bulk, he has proven to be much faster than the Turtles and is arguably just as fast as Splinter. After their first fight with him, both Mikey and Donnie have commented on his speed, with the latter stating "it was like he was everywhere at once". He has great acrobatics and seems to be adaptable in combat, his agility is shown when fighting against Leatherhead. He can also jump higher than the average athlete.

Stealth: He is very stealthy, easily surprising enemies. Shredder was even able to slip behind Leonardo before the blue-masked turtle could even turn to notice.

Steel Claws: His weaponry consists of two sharp claws around both his arms that even have a middle weapon that can slide out. His body is covered by powerful armor that can protect him from a lot of attacks, even Leatherhead's powerful jaw strength and sharp teeth.

Intelligence: His intelligence is quite high especially knowing that his old friend Master Splinter is training ninjas. He seeks ways to create a better army; having people train to be Ninjas, using alien technology, and making mutants to at least destroy his most hated foe.

Business Knowledge: With this he was able to transform the Foot Clan from an old, fallen ninja group into an international criminal organization. Shredder's capable of making deals with criminals such as the Purple Dragons, Tiger Claw, Ivan Steranko, Don Vizioso, etc.

Peak Human Stamina and Endurance: Both are also high for his age as being 50 years old and are enough that he was able to take the jaw strength of Leatherhead, but the type of armor that he wears could be very proactive for his body to take many blows. As he was fighting off Splinter, Leatherhead interfered, but his stamina allowed him to fight back and defeat him. In the episode "The Invasion" Splinter used his special skill of using his fingers to push opponents to the wall, which defeats most opponents, but Shredder was able to get back up and continue to fight Splinter. Though it is revealed that his arm was wounded but still was able to use it to flush Splinter. He even got hit in the face by Mikey without showing discomfort (although, this may be due to the Kuro Kabuto helmet he wears, as Shredder himself once stated that the helmet has never been and {most likely} can never be damaged).
