The Shredder (also known as Oroku Saki) is the eternal adversary of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Splinter, and appears in some context in every form of TMNT media.

Originally he was supposed to only appear in one issue of the comic, but his popularity saw him return; Peter Laird had said that it was not his and Kevin Eastman's intent for him to become the "Darth Vader" of the TMNT universe, but he had indeed become the chief villain. He is also known as the leader of the Foot Clan.

Eastman and Laird got the idea for the Shredder's armor late one evening after the two creators had been drinking. Kevin was drying dishes and came across a triangular cheese grater, he put the cheese-grater on his arm and said, "Could you imagine a character with weapons on his arms like this?". He said how it would be awesome to have a villain called, the "Grater" and Peter responded with, "How about the Shredder?". The next morning the two of them put their pens to paper and actually created the infamous character we know today.

In every form of media, his tenacity keeps him returning even after he should have been killed.

The TechnodromeEdit

Gongshow: Gaiden encountered Shredder and Krang in the technodrome, where Shredder was busy working on a formula of Mutagen to make him powerful enough to beat the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and mutated the team as a test.

In their last fight, Shredder appeared to become Chosen, and was given incredibly boosted strength and speed, but was sucked into an overloaded portal nonetheless.
