Motto: "I put my fear behind me and my skill before me. Thus, I am unassailable!"
T'JBANG is a former disciple of Onihashi, the master swordsman of the Arashikage Ninja clan. He forged and honed his own personal hook swords, precisely balanced for his ultra-secret technique, known as the "Silent Backslash." He developed this ominous form by swiping at flying bats in the deep caverns of a remote mountain range. It is so devastating that no one who saw him use it ever lived to tell about it!
T'JBANG joined the G.I. JOE team as part of their covert Ninja Force unit. He has taken a sworn oath of silence for reasons known only to his second cousin STORM SHADOW. When he's not engaged in deep meditation, he uses his expert sword skills against the evil forces of COBRA. As a zombie hunter, his mission is the eradication of anything infected with the substance known as Compound Z. His ranged weapon expertise can easily stop them at a safe distance. However, if any should come close enough to be a serious threat, his blades can dispatch them quickly, efficiently, and with honor.
T'JBang was available both boxed and bagged.
T'JBang (version 2) was created using the torso and waist of Storm Shadow (v34a) (2009) and Storm Shadow (v34b) (2009), the arms of Storm Shadow (v49) (2013), the upper legs of Snake Eyes (v58) (2012), the lower legs and feet of Red Ninja (v4) (2012) and Red Ninja (v5) (2012), and a new head.
