Motto: "Move with the wind and you will never be heard."

SNAKE-EYES excelled in Long Range Recon Patrols and high-risk covert missions in Southeast Asia. His success was based on his ability to use everything from trees to fog when making himself virtually "invisible," even to skilled Cobra Ninjas. He perfected his mystical martial arts techniques with the same ninja clan that trained STORM SHADOW. Snake-Eyes was living a self-disciplined, tranquil life in the High Sierras when HAWK recruited him for the G.I. Joe team. Since then, he has proven himself an invaluable asset to the Ninja Force and one of the fiercest fighting menaces against all Cobra legions.

Variations

Earlier versions of Snake Eyes (v5)'s packaging did not have the small parts warning printed on the card. A clear sticker with white text was placed above the figure's name. Later card printings have the text next to the figure in black text on a gray background.

Body Construction

Snake Eyes (v5)'s body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures. The mold was re-used in 1994 to create Shadow Ninjas Snake Eyes (v6).

Like all the Ninja Force figures, Snake Eyes (v5)'s body was designed with a "real ninja move." Snake Eyes (v5)'s legs could be squeezed together, causing his arms to make a chopping motion.

International Variants

European releases of Snake Eyes (v5) had hexagonal shaped footpeg holes. Additionally, while still the same color as their American counterparts, the tekagi claws used the retooled versions first seen with Snake Eyes (v6) (1994).

Versions of Snake Eyes (v5)

In 2006, a CLASSIFIED figure was released, showing Snake Eyes from his years prior to G.I. Joe.
