Deep Six never won any awards for being friendly. Became a Navy diver so that "I could be alone." Enjoys bottlecap collecting, solitaire and the New York Times crossword puzzles. Only 12 out of 50 Navy divers passed the strict requirements for the coveted diver position on the Joe team. Eight washed out in the practical application testing. Of the 4 finalists, Deep Six could hold his breath the longest.

Torpedo says: "Down in the depths where light doesn't reach and the water pressure can crush you like an eggshell-that's where Deep Six likes it!"


No variations of Deep Six (v1) are known to exist.

Featured In

Deep Six was featured in several of the various media of GI Joe through the years, including Trading Cards, Comic Books, Cartoons and Commercials.

Body Construction

Deep Six's body mold is entirely original and not made up from previous molds.

Note that the only articulation is in the arms. Deep Six is easily the most poorly articulated figure in the entire run of G.I.Joe.

On Deep Six's back is the air hole that the pump attached to. By pumping air into Deep Six, Deep Six would rise or sink in water, depending on the position of the one-way valve.

International Releases

Deep Six was bagged with the Action Force Flying Submarine in Europe.

In Brazil, Deep Six was named Mergulhador do Turbo Submarino, Codename: Escafandrista and sold with the Turbo Submarino.
