Motto: "Challenge me, and you'll wash up on shore."
Torpedo is in a league of his own, and he likes it that way. He was the first choice to represent the Navy within the G.I. Joe team. As an elite S.E.A.L., he can swim up to 100 yards without scuba tanks, carrying half his weight in underwater explosives. Proficient in three martial art styles, he lives a disciplined life as a strict vegetarian. A highly competent professional in his field, Torpedo's only drawback is his lack of personality. He prefers the company of the ocean, and really hates pollution. You have to give respect to a guy that can go up against a squad of COBRA Eels, bare-handed, and leave them as fish food. When the G.I. Joe team was closed down by the government, Torpedo continued in the service as an Under Water Demolitions instructor. He instituted new methods, and made it the program to enroll in. When he heard the G.I. Joe team re-organizing its members, Torpedo promptly returned. Using the stealth of darkness, Torpedo silently floats into enemy territory with his Night Landing S.E.A.L. Raft.
From General Hawk's Files: "If discipline is the key, Torpedo is the lock. Torpedo's talent in underwater demolitions is extraordinary. When he sets his mind to something, nothing stands in his way. I've never seen anybody hold their breath as long as this guy either. I value his judgement and his skills."
No variations of Torpedo (v2) are known to exist.
Note that the figure's head only turns left and right - it does not allow the head to look up and down.
Versions of Torpedo
In 2003, Torpedo was renamed "Chief Torpedo," and in 2008, he was renamed again to "Lt. Torpedo." So while there are several names, they are all based on the character "Torpedo."
