Red Ninja Leader











Previous character: Rowdy Roddy Piper
Next character: Night Watch Officer

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Red Ninja Leaders were never animated.

Headcanon

Red Ninjas were contracted by Cobra for specific missions from late 1981 until Cobra's ultimate defeat, serving primarily as defenders and sentries within or near Cobra operations. Their leaders were selected by Storm Shadow solely for their expertise, without favoritism. The appearance is represented by Version 1.

The leaders of the RED NINJA clan have reached the highest ranks in multiple martial arts systems. These grueling taskmasters demand the impossible with the threat of severe punishment in the event of failure. They consider themselves the greatest ninjas in the world and are determined to defeat SNAKE EYES, the only ninja who has ever beaten them in battle. They work mostly for the COBRA organization, but because they are mercenaries, they'll hire themselves out to a higher bidder if one comes along.
"G.I. JOE ninjas will never be the best because they lack one thing: the ruthlessness to seek their own glory before the needs of others."
