Primary Specialty: Infantry
Secondary Specialty: Hand-to-Hand Combat Instructor
SNAKE EYES honed his combat skills as a Long Range Recon Patrol trooper in Southeast Asia and perfected his mystical martial arts techniques with the same Ninja clan that produced STORM SHADOW. Although he is as equally adept with submachine guns as he is with swords, Snake Eyes is most dangerous and unpredictable when he's armed and cornered. When HAWK went to Snake Eyes' cabin to recruit him for duty with G.I. Joe, the silent Ninja was out hunting rabbits - bare handed!
"He's generally regarded as the primo-baddest dude of all the G.I. Joes. When we need somebody to sneak up on a class A, major bad guy and pop a can of butt-kick on him, Snake Eyes is the man for the job. The bad guy could be in a fortress on top of a sheet cliff, but that won't bother ol' Snake Eyes none! He'd just whip out his handy grappling hook missile and use it to shimmy his way up the cliff face until he cornered the culprit, threw him down and took his name!"
No variations of Snake Eyes (v4) are known to exist.
Snake Eyes (version 4)'s body is entirely original - no parts were taken from other figures.
