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

The human sacrificed himself, to save the Pokemon. I pitted them against each other, but not until they set aside their differences did I see the true power they all share deep inside. I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
~ Mewtwo

Mewtwo is a Pokémon from the eponymous video game 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. Mewtwo 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.
