The Foot Clan are among the most famous and recurring enemies and major antagonists in the popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, often employed by the arch-villain known as Shredder.


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.

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.

Other Media and Reboot Movie Version

In the 2014 reboot movie of Paramount, The Foot Clan served as the film's minor supporting antagonists (the other being Karai and Eric Sacks).


  • 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.
