Special thanks: Chris for help with season 4 chronology & Loudo for some pre-season 1 events.

~65,000,000 B.C.
The Turtles and Renet stop Savanti Romero's plan of having the Earth dodge the asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs.

An evil being called The Shredder rises and terroizes Japan. Emperor Ōjin sends an elite group of warriors known as The Five Dragons to destroy it. Their greatest warrior, Oroku Saki, is secretly seduced into merging with the Tengu just before delivering the killing blow.

After a reign of terror, The Shredder is defeated by the remaining members of The Five Dragons and is imprisoned for what is meant to be eternity.

A faction of Utroms crashland on Earth and set up base in Japan. Their dangerous prisoner Ch'rell escapes.

Ch'rell takes up the identity of The Shredder, re-establishes the Foot Clan and has the Sword of Tengu forged. Since they are being hunted, The Utroms recruit honorable warriors to serve as Guardians and protect them.

Ch'rell eventually uses a magical amulet known as The Heart of Tengu to enslave The Demon Shredder's elemental heralds and uses them as his own mystic warriors.

The Turtles and Renet appear in medieval times while trying to flee Lord Simultaneous, and end up battling Savanti Romero for the first time. Savanti is banished to live among the dinosaurs millions of years in the past.
