Something has gone seriously wrong somewhere.
A shredder is a kitchen tool, you fool.
It's an office tool.
shredder is a samurai
Shredder is japanese and ninjas are a japanese term. post something AMERICAN like snake eyes.
Fucking Shredder, why is he so awesome?
Because utroms need love too.
It's the best gun in Turok 2. Nothing stands a chance as long as you have red ammo.
TMNT is American - hence their comedy 90s American accents.
You're literally a manchild if you can't handle queer romance in your favorite hobbies, you gross shitnerd. (◡‿◡✿)
You're not a real ninja unless you have a fucking cape made of swords.
Ahem, SNAKE EYES IS AMERICAN, not some space aliens wearing filthy rags.
>TMNT is American
It is? I thought it was an anime like naruto adapted from super sentai footage.
Naruto might be shit outside of the occasional well-animated episode, but whenever someone says "NINJAS AREN'T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THIS, NARUTO IS LITERALLY THE TWILIGHT OF NINJAS!!!" it comes across as really ignorant.
I'm not an expert in Japanese culture Naruto's "ninja magic" stuff seems to have always been a part of Japanese culture as it appears in plenty of pre-Naruto video games and anime. I clearly recall a boss in Megaman 2: The Power Fighters doing the 'turning into a log' thing for instance. seems like there's a clear distinction between real-world ninjas and mythical ninjas.
>costume made out of kitchenware
>cape is a cheese grinder
as for the whole 'wearing colorful bullshit that a REAL NINJA WOULD NEVER WEAR UGH", that's not Naruto's doing either.
Shredder did nothing wrong
Does the Cerebral Bore not count as a gun?
Guys, guys, guys, guys - what-what if- what if... Shredder and the Cobra Commander were the SAME PERSON?
It looks like he has an pigtail
>there are people that believe ninjas are honorable warriors
Nothing, because those two characters are exactly the fucking same.
>implying the concept isn't lulzworthy in itself
>posts Shredder as an example
>posts Naruto as an example
I know what's wrong, faggot-kun; you got dropped on your head too many times as a baby.
What did happen?
It's awesome to look at but actually pretty shitty in combat. Can't do anything against bosses too.
he means "western portrayal of ninjas vs eastern portrayal of ninjas", he's not saying that Oroku Saki is white or something.
the OP post is wrong but not for that reason.
>seems like there's a clear distinction between real-world ninjas and mythical ninjas
no shit, Sherlock!
Real ninjas were dudes who assassinated people, or did espionage. You know what they dressed like? Like the most incospicous people you could reasonably expect to find near the murder scene, either after for escape or before for infiltration.
Do you think that included a full black body-suit with weapons strapped on their back?
bloom and washed out colors
the west wins again
>Do you think that included a full black body-suit with weapons strapped on their back?
yeah and mythical ninjas in Japanese culture and pop culture are more than just that. so when someone says "NARUTO RUINED NINJAS BECAUSE THEY DO MAGIC AND WEAR ORANGE JUMP SUITS" it's really, really silly. that was my point.
Ninjas didn't even wear black, they dressed as farmers and shit.
I think there's a lot of material on writing about actual ninjas. Was there any manga that tried to portray ninjas accurately? There's got to be.
Yeah, my point was that Shreder is a bad example of how ninjas are commonly portrayed in Western fiction and Naruto is a bad example of how ninjas are commonly portrayed in Eastern fiction.
As a funny aside, watch these movies and shit out your intestines in laughter.
