Ninja Trooper

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Ninja Troopers were never animated.

Headcanon

Ninja Troopers were introduced to Cobra's forces in 1991, with their appearance represented by Version 1. Their purpose was the same as that of the earlier Ninja Vipers, but relying on natural talent and instinct rather than elite training. (They were given a crash course in basic techniques by Cobra's ninja agents, including Storm Shadow when available.) They mainly operated alone or in small groups, and rarely worked with other Cobra forces as the similar Pit Vipers did.

Recruited from the highest ranks of the COBRA NEO-VIPER corps, the COBRA NINJA TROOPER forces are skilled ninjas trained in the martial arts by STORM SHADOW, master of the elite and mysterious ARASHIKAGE ninja clan. Sinister, cunning, and ruthless, the COBRA NINJA TROOPER warriors are all tenth level black belts in karate, jujitsu, and kung fu, and are trained in several other martial art forms as well. They are extremely obedient and always carry out their orders to the letter. They function as covert subversives who can "persuade" any foe to do their bidding by entrapping the individual in powerful and devastating martial arts maneuvers.
"He who masters the art of self-discipline can crush any adversary!"
