Intelligence sources indicate that DICE was once part of the NIGHT-CREEPERS, but was kicked out for attempting to steal a sacred jeweled dagger from the clan leader. He soon partnered with a fellow rogue Ninja Swordsman named SLICE, and the combination of their complementary fighting styles made them a force to be reckoned with. They each took positions as loyal bodyguards to the COBRA hierarchy in the absence of STORM SHADOW. DICE is, however, the most sadistic ninja in COBRA's employ by far, and often finds himself undertaking mercenary missions alone.
DICE specializes in close quarters combat and uses choke holds, pressure points, snares, traps, blunt instruments, and other cruel means to incapacitate his opponents. His weapons of choice are the battle axe and double-bladed Bo staff, with which he is a master of bōjutsu. He can manipulate both with blinding speed and bone-crushing power. His most dreaded technique is an attack he calls the "Flying Dragon." DICE is unpredictable when cornered and will do anything for self-preservation.
No variations of Cobra Dice (v2) are known to exist.
Cobra Dice (version 2) was created using the head of Aqua-Viper Officer (2009), the torso and waist of Alpine (v5) (2008), the arms, lower legs, and feet of Storm Shadow (v40) (2011), and the thighs of Storm Shadow (v28) (2009).
