I'm very excited to announce to the drome that Shredder is making his debut in Death Battle on September the 4th! Watch the video from 19:06 to see his reveal.

Tmnt has appeared in Death Battle before, but only the turtles. The first was a Ninja Turtles Battle Royale where Leonardo came out on top. Leonardo then went on to fight Zitz from Battle Toads and won again so tmnt has a pretty good track record on the show.

I don't know anything about Shredder's opponent, Silver Samurai, but as a tmnt fan, I will be cheering for Shredder :)

Silver Samurai is an X-men Villain specficlly one of Wolverine's

Does anyone here who knows about Silver Samurai think that Shredder stands a chance? If Silver Samurai is really a foe to someone as powerful as Wolverine then I'd be a bit worried for Shredder :P

Based on what Death Battle usually does however, the Shredder they will be using will be a composite of all the versions so I think that will work in favour of him since many different versions have shown alot of strengths.

Silver Samurai is way more powerful.

Are they going to include stuff such as Tengu Shredder? I'm not too familiar with SS.

Most likely a human Shredder with a mix of all the powers that the main Shredders have shown throughout the incarnations (e.g. 2012 Shredder transforming into Super Shredder, and all the versions having equalled Splinter and defeated all 4 turtles at once on multiple occassions).

Silver Samurai has armor made of adamantium and uses a sword of same. He has years of training in martial arts and I believe he has some healing ability as well. Shredder will likely lose. This is someone even Wolverine has problems beating.

I've recently been reading a little about SS, isn't it ony his sword made of adamantium and not his armor? Even then though, having a sword that can cut through the hardest of metals except for Wolverine's adamantium is bad news for Shredder.

If Shredder is to win, he will have to use his speed and offensive prowess because I cannot see him tanking even one blow from Silver Samurai's sword.

Screwattack is honestly losing relevance with the exception of Death Battle. Without it, I honestly don't think they'd stay afloat at this point on YouTube.

Shredder is definitely going to lose. Duckie pretty much said all that was needed. Unless Shredder has access to being either Super, Cyber, or Tengu, he's getting his tin can kicked.

I don't know about Tengu or Cyber, but I think Super Shredder will still be vulnerable to being killed by Silver Samurai's sword since Leonardo was able to decapitate him with a regular katana.

Keep in mind I'm going by what I remember from the comics and the 90's X-Men cartoon. It's been a few years since I read anything about him. But I seem to recall the armor was made of it too.

Will they use my Shredder sprites? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xIsGlCXf8Ws) This should be cool, I'm rooting for Saki.

Possibly, you should try and get in touch with them.

I always root for the character that I like, even if they have no chance of winning. Its more fun that way :P

I assuming the video would just about be finished by now and I would surely hope they would ask permission before using any custom sprites. If they don't use your sprites, they are certainly missing out on the best available 2D sources!

I think it would be cool if this battle would be 3D animated. I kind of doubt it though since the last battle was 3D and looked especially well done so they might not have the budget.

They don't need permission All my sprites are Open Source. I'm looking forward to the battle!!

Of course they are, they always do that **** just to make it seem like the character has more tricks up their sleeve than any one version would be able to pull out.

Well to be fair, they will also probably use a Composite version of Silver Samurai.

Death Battle usually doesn't do just one specific version of a character, they look at all the incarnations and use the characters at their maximum potential.

Some more info about Shredder in Death Battle. The cast start talking about tmnt around about at 25 minutes, they mention they won't use any of the 2003 Shredders since theyre not humans and not PD shredder due to him being excessively robotic.

They said theyll be using:
1. Mirage shredder
2. 1987 Shredder
3. original movie shredder
4. 2012 Shredder
5. IDW comics Shredder.

As for Silver Samurai, they mentioned they wont use the one from the Wolverine movies who is a robot which might be a good thing for Shredder since Ive heard that the movie version was overpowered.

They are two. Every once in a while they show the two guys out of character on camera. "Boomstick" is kinda short and less eccentric looking than I expected.

Well that was surpising, the only thing I don't agree with was the whole Shredder's attack was faster than Samurai's because of a one off gag. Other then that good video

It took long enough to get to the actual battle but I'm happy with the winner. More blood than I anticipated.

Just one thing I found interesting was that they didn't use other examples of the Shredder's speed that were often talked about among fans, and used only the example of him slicing Don Vizioso's food.

For e.g. In the season 2 finale of the 2012 series, the Shredder was shown to be fast enough to sneak up behind leonardo at the speed of lightning while other episode have the turtles describing him as so fast that he is appearing everywhere at once.

Also, I found it strange they didn't talk about IDW comics Shredder since I imagine that he has great feats of speed and strength due to being a comic book character.

Regardless however, I enjoyed the Death Battle. Great animation, lots of Gore, satisfied with the result and felt both characters were represented fairly overall.

Some would say Casey got the best of Mirage comics Shredder in #10 I think, but that is something that would not want to be mentioned as it may show his weaknesses. I don't think Death Battle is interested in weakness as much as strong points. But yeah as you mentioned more strength based aspects could have been brought up but that would have made it even longer and for me it was already to much build up before the fight, imho. :)

The longest Death Battle, Goku vs Superman was an insane 34 minutes long :lol:

I liked the actual battle itself. Cool animation & use of spritework. Everything else was super irritating. :tlol:
