Scariest Cartoon Characters #4: The Shredder
Everyone knows and loves the Ninja Turtles. TMNT has been around for 25 years now, and though they’ve been through a number of changes and different series, Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael have always been around to fight crime and kick shell in one form or another. But with every bright light, there is a dark shadow. And, in the case of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, that shadow is the Foot Clan’s leader, the Shredder.
Through out his many forms, The Shredder is always a villainous ninja master who serves as the archenemy of the Turtles. In some tales, he is Oroku Saki; rival of Hamato Yoshi (Splinter). In other tales, he is a demon from ancient Japan, or an evil alien being known as an Ultrom. In his latest incarnation, part of TMNT Back to the Sewers, Shredder takes the form of Cyber Shredder: a programmed duplicate of his Ultrom form. But regardless of form, Shredder is always an incredible evil, incredibly scary threat — able to take on the entire Turtle team by himself. With Razor sharp claws all over his body armor, who would want to fight him?? Check out some video footage
