|~ Tatsu ordering Foot Ninjas to retreat.|
Tatsu is the right hand ninja of the Shredder and the secondary antagonist in the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and it's 1991 sequel. He acts as the mentor of the Foot ninjas and abuses them physically for falilure. Tatsu even almost killed a young teenager called Shen Sho. Casey Jones defeated Tatsu at the end of the movie.
In the second movie, Tatsu tried to assume the leadership of the Foot after the Shredder's presumed death. However it turned out that his master was alive and he served him once more. Tatsu's fate is unknown at the end of the movie, as he was last seen being crushed between the shells of all four turtles. He was arrested by the NYPD and sent to prison off-screen.
