Zartan can blend in with his environment so skillfully that he becomes virtually invisible. Using make-up, mimicry and disguises, he can successfully impersonate anyone. He's also a clever acrobat, contortionist and practitioner of several mystic martial arts. Elusive and secretive to the extreme, he is difficult to to find and almost impossible to capture. His skill as a marksman is less than well known, but was used by Storm Shadow in the past, with tragic results. Zartan encounters Duke and Scarlett in a Cobra-controlled missile silo and relishes this opportunity to battle them.
Zartan is the one who killed Snake-Eyes' master with a sniper bullet in the head. He also shoots Snake-Eyes in the mouth which causes him to have an inability to speak. In the series, he also attacked Duke and Scarlett. Shortly after when he is about to kill Scarlett he is shot by Duke. He then falls down and seemingly dies.
