Shredder
Real Name: Saki Oroku
Search for 'Shredder' on Amazon


Bio:
In the original comic books by Mirage Comics, Oroku Saki is the younger brother of Oroku Nagi. Nagi competed with Hamato Yoshi (the owner of Splinter, the Turtles' mentor) for the love of a woman named Tang Shen. But Shen loved only Yoshi, and a feud erupted between Yoshi and Nagi, which led to Yoshi killing Nagi and fleeing from Japan to New York City with Shen.

Saki, who was only a young child then, joined the Foot Clan and trained to be a fierce ninja. Over time, he rose in ranks in the Clan and was eventually put in charge of the Clan’s American branch. This allowed him to finally move to New York and avenge his brother’s death by killing Yoshi and Shen. However, Yoshi’s pet rat Splinter escaped, mutated, and spent years training the four Ninja Turtles to avenge Yoshi.

When Splinter felt the Turtles were ready, he ordered them to reveal themselves to Oroku Saki, in the Shredder armor, and challenge him to a fight. This first fight took place at night on a rooftop, and ended with The Shredder dying when a bomb blew him up as he fell off the building. However, he was later recreated through a unique Foot Clan cloning technique and was finally finished off by Leonardo by decapitation.

With the Shredder gone, chaos erupted in New York City among the leaderless Foot Clan. The leader of the Foot in Japan, Karai, came to New York and established a shaky truce with the Ninja Turtles to re-establish peace.

In the Image Comics series, considered non-canonical, Raphael tries to impersonate Shredder by wearing his armor. He tries to make a peace pact with the Foot Clan, but ultimately fails. Suddenly, a mysterious Lady Shredder appears to challenge Raphael. Also one of the vilians, a female ninja named Pimiko is revealed to be the Shredder's daughter. Not much is known after this since the comic was discontinued, but after the comic ended Gary Carlson confirmed that Karai was Lady Shredder. In issues 3 and 4 of the new Tales of the TMNT, it is shown that a few weeks after Leonardo defeated the Shredder, he was resurrected once again by a Foot mystic. The Shredder was not human but a cross between a man, a shark, and an octopus. The Turtles won their final fight against the Shredder when he became aware at what he had become.

Notes:
According to series creator and writer of the current TMNT series, the Shredder is dead and gone for EVER. Period.
