If Torpedo finds himself often alone, it's because of his attitude. If it's Deep Six, it's because that's just the way he prefers it to be. A real loner, he often engages in solitary activities and interests namely bottlecap collecting, solitaire and crossword puzzles. He does not bother to get to know his teammates and much less their names but his loyalty is unquestionable.
Deep Six's isolationist nature is what has made him the best deep water diver there is. When asked why he wanted to be a Navy diver, his reply was so that, "I could be alone." In the training for Navy divers, he was among the four remaining finalists. Of the four, he was the one who could hold his breath the longest.

- The original "diving suit" version of Deep Six has the least articulation of any G.I. Joe action figure ever. He likes it that way, because it means you'll leave him alone.
