Early 30s

 Tiger Claw is the secondary antagonist in the half of the 2nd season and the 3rd season of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He is a skilled assassin/bounty hunter from Japan who became one of Shredder's hench-mutants when Shredder came in search of recruits. He made his debut 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, April and Casey.

Official Description

"I was just a normal boy in Japan until the Kraang turned me into their greatest bounty hunter: half man, half tiger. My skills are so superior that Shredder has made me his second in command, and with good reason-I am nearly invincible! (Except that there's a bowl of skim milk around.)" - Tiger Claw


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.
