 Tiger Claw is the secondary antagonist and a Mutant appearing in the middle of Season 2. He is a skilled assassin/bounty hunter from Japan that became an ally of the Shredder when he came to Japan in search of recruits. Tiger Claw debuted in the episode "Wormquake!". When he makes a return in "The Wrath of Tiger Claw". He is shown to be more powerful than ever -- and now has a personal grudge against the Turtles, Splinter, Casey, and April.


Tiger Claw was mutated by the Kraang as a young Japanese boy and then grew up as a circus performer, which was prior to him becoming a part of the criminal underworld. He is the Shredder's most dreaded assassin and bounty hunter from Japan. Tiger Claw has lost his tail during a duel, and he has been relentlessly searching for the person who took it from him, and no doubt seeking to terminate that person and when he does terminate that person, it will probably be in a very gruesome way.
