This marks the first High Noon round for us here at Break The Meta, and let me tell you… We love a good debate! Judging by the name of this section and the “VS.” in the title, I’m sure you know exactly what High Noon is all about. If you don’t, It’s a battle between 2 or more characters to see who would come out on top! We will also set parameters around these fights, so you don’t have to hear your know-it-all friend talk your ear off. All that being said, let’s dive right into this fight!
In this battle, we have a fight between Shredder from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles VS. Snake Eyes from G.I. JOE! Both are formidable Ninjas who are great at combat and the use of certain weapons as well. There’s a high chance that you already know what these two are capable of, but if you don’t, I will provide a brief bio of both of them for you.
Shredder is the main antagonist of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, being the leader of the Foot Clan and strongest of them all as well. He wields his iconic wrist blades along with another bladed padding around his body as well, which is honestly the only weapon that I’ve ever seen him use. He has been known to take on the TMNT all at once on multiple occasions and losing to them after almost every encounter. Oh yeah, and he has died to them in the past:
In the Mirage #TMNT comics, the Shredder was killed 3 times.
1) Knocked off a roof by Don, blown to bits w/ a grenade.
2) Decapitated in a duel by Leo, his body burned on a pyre.
3) Horribly mutated, his spirit vanquished by Splinter & his body impaled by Casey.

That being said, he’s still a huge threat and could definitely beat a number of opponents in a 1v1 match. For instance, he even went toe-to-toe with Batman and ended up winning the battle in the 2019 Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie:
Moving onto the most Iconic G.I. Joe Team member, Snake Eyes is an assassin with incredible swordsmanship and firearms as well. Being known as arguably the best assassin in the series, he often fights foes with his Katanas and Uzi. He doesn’t speak because he went mute after a helicopter crash, in case you wanted to know. His youth leads back to his time with Storm Shadow when they were best friends at the time. After their military work, Storm Shadow invited Snake Eyes to train as Ninjas with his family in Japan. Long story short, Storm got jealous of Snake because he was growing much quicker and performing better than he was, which eventually led to these two going to war on each other in their later years.
That being said, he has a few highlights of his own, but the biggest one (That I know of) is when he used the Seventh Step on Storm Shadow, which created a huge shockwave killing him in the movie “G.I. Joe Resolute”:
The Rules of the Duel
- No Ranged Weapons
- The Area: Abandoned Steel Factory (No Power) in the daytime

Johnny Django’s Vote
I’m placing my vote on Shredder because he basically has to fight 4 Snake Eyes all the time (A.K.A Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Not only is he stronger, but he’s also fast for someone his size, and he’s great at hand-to-hand combat as well. The biggest takeaway is that he has Wristblades which, in my opinion, makes it hard for Snake Eyes to block in a rapid attack. The only thing I can think of is if Snake Eyes uses Seventh Step on Shredder, which would most likely kill him, but that’s if he can get it off. If I do recall, Shredder has a move slightly similar to the Seventh Step as well, where he vibrates his fist really fast, pushing them forward causing a shockwave effect in the victim’s body.
My vote also goes to Shredder. I am a huge Snake Eyes fan but Shredder literally fights Super Powered mutant turtles that can benchpress cars bare-handed. His physical build and stamina also seem to be more durable than Snake Eyes, he’s also more skilled in hand-to-hand combat, and he’s also wholly ruthless and overall cunning and strategic.
