Fig. #0739: G.I. JOE NinjaMOS 1: Infantry [11B]
MOS 2: Intelligence
  • head: Kamakura (03)
  • arms: Kamakura (03)
  • torso: Kamakura (03)
  • waist: Kamakura (03)
  • legs: Kamakura (03)
Accessories: black sheath backpack (02/IV Snake Eyes's, with silver trim); black submachine gun (86 Low-Light's Uzi); black sword (92 T'Jbang's); black knife (new, stubby with ribbed hilt); black chain weapon (89 Snake Eyes's)
Trained by SNAKE EYES in over twelve forms of hand-to-hand combat, KAMAKURA is as versatile with a katana (sword) or kusari-gama (chain and sickle) as he is with a standard issue M-4 assault rifle. No one is quite sure how the young ninja convinced SNAKE EYES to take him under his tutelage, but KAMAKURA bears the same Arashikage ninja clan tattoo as both SNAKE EYES and STORM SHADOW. Perhaps SNAKE EYES felt it was his responsibility to pass on the clan's traditions, since its only other living Arashikage master has joined COBRA forces. While he's one of the most skilled fighters on the G.I. JOE team, KAMAKURA hasn't yet reached the level of his master, and SNAKE EYES isn't afraid to knock him down in hard randori (sparring) if he forgets. KAMAKURA is, however, a little more personable to have around. He tends to lurk in the background and prefers to tackle his assignments as quickly and quietly as possible.
"We don't know how KAMAKURA talked SNAKE EYES into teaching him all those moves, but I do know the hardest part of his training wasn't the bruises and bumps. It was his six month vow of silence."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Night Creeper (03). Item #55425.
Version 2: 2004 Valor vs. Venom Wave 2 two-pack assortment (04/I)
Fig. #0833: G.I. JOE Ninja ApprenticeMOS 1: Infantry [11B]
MOS 2: Intelligence
  • head: Kamakura (04/I)
  • arms: Kamakura (04/I)
  • torso: Kamakura (04/I)
  • waist: Kamakura (04/I)
  • legs: Kamakura (04/I)
Accessories: black sheath backpack (new, thin with long sword slot and hexagonal back peg); black submachine gun (02 Neo-Viper's Skorpion); silver sword (new, with metal hilt); black communications gauntlet (common for VvV Joes)
Living under the shadow of SNAKE EYES isn't an easy thing to do, but it sure keeps KAMAKURA on his toes. As the pupil of the famous G.I. JOE ninja master, KAMAKURA always strives to do his best, because he knows what a huge responsibility he has as the sole heir to the Arashikage ninja secrets. Well on his way to mastering 12 forms of unarmed combat, he is also highly skilled with the sword, sai, chain, and sickle, as well as with the standard issue M-16A2 battle rifle. KAMAKURA doesn't like to be the center of attention, preferring to remain in the background until the time is right to strike. He's the same way with conversation, too; he usually keeps quiet, but hanging around SNAKE EYES doesn't offer much to say, so once you get him started, KAMAKURA has a lot to catch up on.
"KAMAKURA reminds us of SNAKE EYES in his early days. He gets in, gets the job done, and gets out before the COBRA forces even realize what hit them, and that's just the way we like it."
Toy Notes: Carded in a two-pack with Destro (04). Item #55905. Kamakura's construction is altered to accommodate a spring-loaded, Action Attack move (grabbing the sword from its backpack). Derisively known as the "banana-head" version by critical collectors.
