He throws a canister of a strange substance called mutagen and it explodes in his house. A rat touches him causing him to become a rat like creature. Hamato is thought to be dead and 4 students of his Leonardo, Donatello, Michaelangelo and Raphael tell the police Saki did it and is arrested. Saki then trains his own ninjas and seeks revenge against Yoshi and the students as the Shredder.
