Appearance(s) Mewtwo VS Shadow
I was not born a Pokémon, I was created. And my creators have used and betrayed me. So, I stand alone!
~ Mewtwo

Mewtwo is a legendary creature from the Pokémon series. It appeared in the 63rd episode of Death Battle, Mewtwo VS Shadow, where it fought against returning combatant, Shadow the Hedgehog from the Sonic the Hedgehog series. It was voiced by Chris Niosi (Kirbopher).

Mewtwo also unofficially made its first appearance in the joke Death Battle, "Vegeta vs Mewtwo?", where it "confronted" Vegeta.


Mewtwo was the result of a horrific DNA scientific experiment by Team Rocket's top scientist. Designed from an embryo of a pregnant Mew, Mewtwo was created to become the world's strongest Pokémon; however, Mewtwo turned on its creators and murdered everyone in the lab, making its escape. As a living creature, Mewtwo has a savage heart, and because of its altered genetics, all it can think about is defeating anything in its way; regardless of Pokémon or human.
