Crimson Guard Commander











Previous character: Red Ninja
Next character: Mega-Viper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, these Crimson Guard Commanders were never animated, although five episodes of the Sunbow series refer to Tomax and Xamot as Crimson Guard Commanders.

Headcanon

Crimson Guardsmen were introduced to the Cobra forces in 1982, ranked as Troopers, Squad Leaders, and Officers. Crimson Guard Commanders replaced the designation of "Crimson Guard Officer" in late 1986, with their appearance represented by Version 1. They served chiefly as elite bodyguards for Cobra's leadership, and as leading and administrative generalists for the Guard. Their presence on the battlefield was only observed in operations of the most vital importance to Cobra, and their skill was such that none were ever known to be captured or killed. All ranks of the Crimson Guard were represented by Crimson Guard Version 7 by 1991.

CRIMSON GUARD COMMANDERS are good at what they do, there's no denying that. Even DUKE admits they are some of the toughest Cobra soldiers he's ever had the displeasure of dealing with, especially when they are armed with their weapon of choice: modified AK-47 assault rifles! They're very good at being very bad, and have participated at all levels of Cobra operations from industrial espionage to full-scale global attacks. COBRA COMMANDER considers them his top officers, and feels safe having them swear their allegiance strictly to him. For if they were to ever turn against him, they would prove to be his second most feared enemy, next to the Joes, of course!
