Motto: "Beauty may be only skin deep...but lethal goes to the bone!"
SCARLETT began her training in the martial arts at age nine and was awarded a black belt at age 15. She was not only physically ahead of her time, but mentally as well. She graduated summa cum laude from two Ivy League universities and went on to excel in training courses at all four branches of the armed forces. Cobra often mistakes her for just a pretty face rather than a member of G.I. Joe's elite Ninja Force, which makes her perfect for undercover missions. She is great friend to each of the Joes, especially SNAKE-EYES, and a deadly enemy to Cobra.

There are two versions of Scarlett's neck joint.
One early of Scarlett's neck is a ball joint (pictured right) and allows some up and down movement. The later version of Scarlett's neck allows her head to turn only side to side (pictured left). The easiest way to tell if you have a ball joint Scarlett is to look for the gap in the back of her neck where the plastic is fused together.
Earlier versions of Scarlett'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
Scarlett's body was original - no parts were taken from other figures. Except for the head, the entire mold was re-used later that year to create Street Fighter 2 Chun-Li.
Like all the Ninja Force figures, Scarlett's body was designed with a "real ninja move." Scarlett's spring-loaded right leg could be pushed back, then released, causing it to spring forward in a kicking motion.
Note that Scarlett has two cloth ribbons attached to her right hip.
Versions of Scarlett
In 2002, Scarlett was renamed "Agent Scarlett," renamed Scarlett in 2004, and went back to Agent Scarlett for a 2005 release. So while there are multiple names, they are all based on the character "Scarlett."
