RED NINJAS are ruthless mercenaries who work mainly for Cobra Commander. They earn top dollar in battle because they are the most feared ninja warriors since the No-Kan-Doo ninja dynasty terrorized China in the 15th century. When Red Ninjas enter a fight, they're in it until the bitter end (or until they get paid more money to fight someone else). G.I. Joe is the only force that has ever defeated them, as they did in the famous Sushi battle that had sweet and sour moments for both sides. Red Ninjas possess advanced ninjutsu skills that are hard to find, and they fight like razor-toothed sharks in a feeding frenzy.
Motto: "We spin 'n chop our enemies faster than frogs in blenders!"
