Like many other Crimson Guards, Fred underwent plastic surgery for Cobra, receiving the identical set of "Fred" features of Fred Broca. Fred VIII's duty was to spy Fred VII in Denver, so when Fred VII and Raptor shot and buried Cobra Commander, Fred VIII followed them, unearthed the commander and gave him CPR, then a quick call to the secret Fred Hotline located a Fred series doctor in the Denver area who removed the bullet and saw to Cobra Commander's full and complete recovery.
