The Foot have existed for centuries, rodent - hidden in the deepest dark, striking out at our enemies when they least expect it, then vanishing into the night until called upon by our master to strike again. We are assassins. We are thieves. We are warriors. We are ninja.
~ Karai explaining the Foot Clan to Splinter.

The Foot Clan are among the most famous and recurring enemies and a major antagonistic force in the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise. They are often employed by the arch-villain known as Shredder. Because their organization spans across the franchise, their members depend on their incarnation.


The Foot Clan consist of a multitude of faceless ninjas who exist to do battle with the heroic turtles and although they tend to fall rather easily they are anything if persistent and continually return to take more punishment. Some versions also reserve their more skilled soliders just in case a bigger threat appears.

Aside from using ninjas as soldiers, the Foot has been known to associate with gangsters, robots, mutants and even aliens and demons throughout their different interpretations. They appear in the Mirage Comics,Archie Comics,and the IDW comics.The founders is from the Mirage Comics named Sato and Oshi,while in the IDW comics the Founder is Takeshi Tatsuo who was reincarnated as Oroku Saki the man who would eventually become Shredder. 

The Foot Clan members in the modern times and leader is Shredder who is usually the primary antagonist of the TMNT series but other leaders aside from him are Karai who is originally someone to replace Shredder in the MIrage Comics later installments became his adopted daughter or biological desendant in the IDW comics.Baxter Stockman would also join the Foot in some versions. In the other members the Foot Elite and Foot Mystics are also employed as well as some Foot Scientists. Bebop and Rocksteady are often seen as members of the Foot during their debut in the 1987 show and would since appear in many incarnations like in the comics in the Archie and IDW or the 2012 series.The Purple Dragons sometimes work for the Foot in some versions with Hun their leader being one of Shredder's enforcers.Other members include Ktisune,Koya,Bludgeon,and Alpoex from the IDW comics,Tiger Claw and Fishface from the 2012 series,and Tatsu,Tokka and Rahzar from the movies.The Foot sometimes ally with Krang a warlord from Dimension X while in others their rivals.

  • As the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise originally borrowed elements from the Marvel Comics superhero Daredevil, the Foot Clan was based off the Marvel Comics' evil ninja group and one of Daredevil's recurring antagonists, The Hand. As with the rest of the original comics, they served as a homage to them. In the later comics they had become different from them with Shredder taking some elements of Ra's Al Ghul.
