Memorable quotes

"After all we've been through, why won't you trust Snake-Eyes?"
"Uh, newsflash! He's a ninja! By definition, that makes him a spy, a saboteur and an assassin." *everyone just looks at him* "What? Look it up!"

--Scarlett may know Snake-Eyes well, but Tunnel Rat has done his homework.

"The gas bomb wasn't enough, huh? You had to send us a wake-up call from Samurai Suzie?"
"That would be 'Ninja Nancy.'"

--Yeah, Duke, get your terminology right or Scarlett will set you straight.

Miscellaneous trivia


Hello, my name is Arata.

  • First appearance: Storm Shadow, Jinx, Hard Master, Arata.
  • Duke is on the phone with Alvin Kibbey, who apparently posted pictures of the Joes on his anti-Cobra blog.
  • Jinx specifically identifies Hard Master as her father.[1]
  • Young Snake-Eyes speaks.
  • Hard Master is voiced by Keone Young, who also voiced Storm Shadow in the Sunbow series.

G.I. Joe references

  • In the Marvel comics, Snake-Eyes had a cabin in the High Sierras. His dojo, though never given a geographic location, seems to be in similar terrain.
  • When Jinx swings a sword at Storm Shadow's head from behind, he claps his hands and catches it. As seen in G.I. Joe #59, that's a standard Arashikage test.

Real-world references

  • No references.


  1. In the A Real American Hero continuity, Hard Master was Tommy's uncle, and Jinx was his cousin, but she could have been the child of one of Hard Master's other siblings.
