Fiction

A Real American Hero comics continuity

Marvel Comics continuity

Slice and his partner Dice first came into contact with Cobra and G.I. Joe when a man calling himself the Red Ninja Master contacted them and called them and a number of Red Ninjas (renegade members of the Arashikage clan) to Cobra's Silent Castle in Trans-Carpathia. The Master displayed an in-depth knowledge of many of the Arashikage fighting techniques and convinced the other ninjas of his identity. Since Cobra Commander hadn't used the castle for years, Slice, Dice and the Red Ninjas easily ventured to the castle. Slice and Dice were surprised when Destro and the Baroness arrived at the castle after Destro was given the castle by Cobra Commander. When Slice, Dice and the other ninjas attacked Destro, they discovered the Joes had been watching, including Ninja Force. After a long battle, the ninjas escaped the castle into the wilderness with the Ninja Force close behind. After Snake-Eyes defeated Slice in a duel to settle their dispute, the Red Ninja Master arrived and revealed himself to be Firefly.

The mercenary had fooled the ninjas and after a brief fight, ambushed both groups of ninjas with his B.A.T.s and knocked them out with gas. He used Cobra's Brainwave Scanner to turn Slice and the others into his brainwashed slaves and headed to Cobra Island, long since unoccupied by Cobra. The Ninja Force eventually broke free, but Slice, Dice and the Red Ninjas remained under his control for a time.

Trivia

  • The Red Ninjas had been Cobra cannon-fodder for years before showing up in the toyline, though the first toy had a vastly different appearance than the red pajamas seen in the comics.
  • The 1993 Red Ninja has one of the worst-written filecards in the entire line, filled with bad jokes and puns.
