The concept of the Super Shredder originates from ''Secret of the Ooze''.Ooze''.
** Shredder's threat to Stockman is exactly what the 2003 Shredder did to his Stockman.


* AndYourLittleDogToo: Towards the end of the episode, Shredder tells Splinter outright that once he kills him, he'll kill all of his loved ones. This leads Splinter to detonate a pre-prepared bomb in a TakingYouWithMe attempt.



* CutHisHeartOutWithASpoon: Shredder gives Stockman such a threat when he initially refuses to inject him with the rest of the mutagen.
-->'''Shredder''': [''grabs Stockman by the throat''] ''Do it!'' Or I will pluck off your limbs until you are nothing left but a buzzing head.



* TakingYouWithMe: Splinter is eventually forced to do this to stop Super Shredder.

to:

* TakingYouWithMe: Splinter is eventually forced to do this to stop Super Shredder. Shredder even attempts to escape, but Splinter drags him down with him.
-->'''Splinter''': Saki! We die together!
* VillainsOutShopping: In his first scene, Rahzar is shown watching ''Chris Bradford's 2 Ruff Crew'' and eating a bowl of popcorn. When Stockman informs him of Shredder's summons, he's not happy.
-->'''Rahzar''': Aww, right at the good part!


* CarFu: The minute the Turtles see Super-Shredder leading a captive Karai, Leo tries to ram him with the Shellraiser... only for Shredder to stop it and toss it aside with his bare hands.



* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Shredder becomes a MonstrousHumanoid after he forces Stockman to inject him with all the Mutagen he has, and his sanity effectively reaches Ch'Rell levels by this point.

* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Shredder becomes a MonstrousHumanoid after he forces Stockman to inject him with all the Mutagen he has, and his sanity effectively reaches Ch'Rell levels by this point. Splinter lampshades it:
-->'''Splinter''': "You must be proud. You are finally a monster both inside ''and'' out."

Added DiffLines:

* NeverSayDie: Subverted twice. The first time by Shredder, and the second time by Splinter.


* BelievingTheirOwnLies: An incredibly dark example with Shredder, who rants at Splinter for supposedly turning Karai against him and brainwashing her, which is exactly what Shredder has done ''her entire life'', and in a more literal sense with the brain worms last season.

* BelievingTheirOwnLies: An incredibly dark example with Shredder, who rants at Splinter for supposedly turning Karai against him and brainwashing her, which is exactly what Shredder has done ''her entire life'', and in a more literal sense with the brain worms last season. He also insists that he ''saw'' Splinter killing Tang Shen with his own eyes.


Added DiffLines:

* DreamingOfThingsToCome: At the beginning of the episode, Splinter tells his clan that he had a dream about fighting the Shredder, which ended with them both falling to their doom. This is exactly what happens by the episode's end.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: During their fight, Shredder calls Splinter a coward. This is despite the fact that he has resorted to underhanded tactics himself, such as attacking Splinter when he was poisoned in "The Manhattan Project" and tried stabbing him in the back in "Annhilation Earth"/"Earth's Last Stand".


Added DiffLines:

* RedemptionRejection: Splinter tries to convince Shredder to give up on his twisted vendetta. But, Shredder being Shredder, his pleas fall on deaf ears.
* RevengeBeforeReason: Stockman tries to warn Shredder that the mutagen is untested and potentially dangerous, but Shredder refuses to listen. He insists on having the rest injected into him, so he can finally have the power to crush Splinter.
* SanitySlippage: What little reason Shredder had before vanishes completely after he completes his mutation.


->'''Karai''': "You... you've become... everything you've loathed. Everything you hate! A mutant!"

->'''Karai''': --->'''Karai''': "You... you've become... everything you've loathed. Everything you hate! A mutant!"

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreWhatYouHate: In a last resort to rid himself of his enemies once and for all, Shredder resorts into turning into the one thing he hates most of all: a mutant. Karai lampshades this:
->'''Karai''': "You... you've become... everything you've loathed. Everything you hate! A mutant!"

complete, he challenges Splinter to a duel.


Added DiffLines:

* NoSell: None of Splinter's direct attacks really phase Shredder. In the opening moments of their fight, Shredder has the audacity to simply stand there, bored, while Splinter smacks him.

Added DiffLines:

* CruelMercy: Super Shredder lets Shinigami live after beating her unconscious, [[PragmaticVillainy but only so that he can force Karai to come with him. He explicitly tells her that if she struggles he will hunt Shinigami down and tear her apart.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AgonyOfTheFeet: A non-comedic example, towards the end of the episode The Super Shredder steps on and crushes one of Splinter's feet. You can actually hear bone crunching.


Added DiffLines:

* MadeOfIron: Splinter can't harm The Mutant Super Shredder in the slightest, but he takes one hell of a beating and never stops fighting.

Added DiffLines:

* CurbStompBattle: Shredder's increased durability makes it impossible for even Splinter to fight him, and he gives Splinter one of these before Splinter blows up a bomb in a last-ditch attempt to kill both of them.

Added DiffLines:

* EvilMakesYouMonstrous: Shredder becomes a MonstrousHumanoid after he forces Stockman to inject him with all the Mutagen he has, and his sanity effectively reaches Ch'Rell levels by this point.
