Sgt. Slaughter's the only G.I.Joe drill instructor with full authorization to drive the new amphibious assault machine, the Warthog A.I.F.V.! Though all G.I. Joe personnel are capable of driving the vehicle, only the Sarge knows how to beat on it to get the most out of it. That's why he's the head D.I., 'cause he knows exactly how to break-in something new!
"Sgt. Slaughter thinks it's his personal mission to kick the butt of every boot in Pendleton. This guy can drill his trainees into the ground for 72 hours straight before he breaks a sweat. His favorite pastime is marching over the boys' backs while they do finger pushups in the mud, and spewing out brutal verbalities. Whenever he gets behind the wheel of the Warthog he's like a raging bull in a china shop, tearing up everything in his path! He runs it through the gauntlet, hammering at it and crushing it into the ground as if it were another 'wet-behind-the-ears' recruit. He's gotta be that way, 'cause no one is going to cut you a break on the battlefield. If it's not as tough as he is, he doesn't want it!"
No variations of Sgt. Slaughter (v3) are known to exist.
