Foot Cultists are enemies of the Ninja Turtles. They are a species of humanoid Super Shredder mutants that were created accidentally with the mutagenic blood of Super Shredder himself, which serve The Foot Clan as their new army. Once the first of its kind was born and started to populate its species, these creatures worshiped The Shredder as some kind of god of theirs, leading them to create an Underground Shredder Shrine in the honor of the evil warlord. These mutants are lead by Tiger Claw, who is the new leader of The Foot (after Super Shredder was assassinated by Leonardo). They were used by Tiger Claw to steal the Mystic Seal of the Ancients and The Scroll of the Demodragon, which would be utilized by Takeshi in order to summon Kavaxas. After Kavaxas resurrected Shredder and took over control of The Foot Clan, the fate of these mutants is unknown, but it is speculated that they might still be living in the shadows. Foot Cultists debuts in Scroll of the Demodragon.
BackstoryNew York City, Super Shredder and Splinter were both fighting each other to their deaths. During the fight between the two rivals, Super Shredder's steel claws were cut off by Splinter, causing him to bleed. With his mutagenic blood expelling from his wounds, some of the blood ended up in the sewers of New York City. a homeless man was wandering around the sewers and found a puddle of Shredder's mutated blood on the floor. With his curiosity taking over, he touches the mysterious substance and drinks it, for some unknown reason. humans that lived in New York City. This ends up in them mutating into clones that resemble the creature itself. a shrine located under New York City (somewhere near the sewers), which was built in honor of The Shredder. Some time after the creation of the "Shredder Cult", Tiger Claw and the remaining members of The Foot Clan (Fishface, Bebop, and Rocksteady) discovered this underground shrine and these mutants while they were trying to search for the Ninja Turtles (due to their last showdown, in which their master was killed by Leonardo). Tiger Claw, now as the new leader of The Foot Clan and the "Crimson Leader" of the Shredder Cult, starts to lead the Foot Cultists so that they can help him resurrect his old master by summoning Kavaxas.
The Shredder Cult Riseshumans into clones of itself, the mutants (with various memories of The Shredder) start to worship the Super Shredder as some kind of god of their own. After building an underground shrine under New York City in honor of this evil warlord, the Shredder Cult was born. But one day, when Tiger Claw discovers the shrine and the cultists, he turns himself into the new leader of The Foot Clan and the "Crimson Leader" of the Shredder Cult. With the Super Shredder mutants under his command, they serve Takeshi to help him summon Kavaxas, a powerful Demodragon that would be useful for him in the resurrection of The Shredder. sewers, Donatello started to pick up signals from them, thinking that they were homeless people that were moving into the sewers. One night, when Raphael and Casey Jones were out patrolling, they meet face-to-face with one of these creatures, which was trying to perform a sacrifice on a homeless person with a turkey baster with Shredder's blood. After the sacrifice was interrupted, Raph and Casey chase the cultist around the sewers, until they are lead into some part of the sewers in which they meet an army of creatures similar to itself. Turtles and April. Once the team located some new motion sensors, a trio of Foot Cultists were moving around the sewers and they went up into the surface for their heist. With Leonardo and Michelangelo following them, they get to them and find out that they are trying to steal an ancient scroll. As the two brothers try to fight off the three mutants, they find out that they cannot possibly defeat them. Once the police pull over to the alley, they all retreat to leave the crime scene.
