Kim "Jinx" Arashikage studied and competed in three forms of martial arts from the time she was seven until she graduated from Bryn Mawr. Upon arriving in Japan for a vacation, she discovered that her family had been ninjas for generations, and she was officially initiated into the clan. JINX was recruited for the G.I. JOE team by SNAKE EYES.
"Don't underestimate her. She has been to the Secret Mountain and studied the Seven Silent Forms with the Blind Master. She has the Eyes That Pierce, the Iron Hand, and the Heart That Waits. She can see through your deception, batter aside your defenses and dazzle you with the strength of her will."
Kim Arashikage was available in either a "Primary Deco" or a "Variant Deco". In addition to the different coloring, the figures featured different heads and accessories. Note that while the changes in these figures are significant enough to warrant calling them different versions, Hasbro officially considers them variations. We have therefore chosen to list them as such. The "Variant Deco" was produced in much lower quantities.
Kim Arashikage (version 1a) was produced using all new molds. The body was shared with Kim Arashikage (v1b).
Versions of Jinx
In 2003, Jinx was renamed "Agent Jinx" and in 2012 renamed "Kim Arashikage." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Jinx."
