Takeshi Tatsuo is the founder of the Foot Clan in the IDW comics.

He was the samurai retainer of the daimyō Ashikaga Yuu, and was so fierce a warrior that Ashikaga himself even feared him. Ashikaga set a trap for Takeshi in the mountains where a legion of his armies awaited him. He slaughtered the lot of them, but at the expense of his right leg. He was saved by a mysterious mystic and had his leg restored to him; the bloodied footprint it left behind inspired the Foot Clan's name.

He formed the Foot Clan out of the remnants of the Yuu clan, and forged its power through an alliance with the witch Kitsune and the mysterious Tetsu Oni. Terrible atrocities were committed by the clan, and eventually Oroku Maji and Masato became suspicious of the clan leader's dealings with magic, especially since he never seemed to age.

After confirming that he took a strange elixir to restore his youth every month, the two men made their move. Maji attacked Tatsuo before he could take the elixir the next month, and slew him. Kitsune cursed Maji, causing Tatsuo to later be reincarnated as Maji's son Oroku Saki.
