DIC animated series
- The Rock-Viper filecard says "On the day of their graduation from the training program, candidate Rock-Vipers are dropped from helicopters onto the top of a 500 foot, sheer-sided mesa rock formation. They are outfitted with 250 feet of rope and informed that only 50% will graduate upon completion of this final test," clearly implying the solution was to shoot one of your classmates and take his rope. However, because even suggesting such a thing was too violent for the era, a final line was added: "It doesn't take long for them to figure out the only way they will get down the mesa is to slide down the rope and pray they land in a soft pile of dirt at the bottom!" Riiiiight.
- Rock-Vipers appear as regular enemies in the NES Taxan G.I. Joe game on sections 1-3, 3-1, 4-3 and 6-1.
