Sea Slug











Previous character: Back-Stop
Next character: Ice Viper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Sea Slugs were never animated.

Headcanon

Sea Slugs were introduced to the Cobra forces in late 1984, with their appearance represented by Version 1. Like Lampreys, they are elite soldiers selected from Eels, but trained for aerial and underwater missions rather than surface duties. They are therefore in the top tier of Viper ranks, alongside Lampreys and Hydro-Vipers. They were among Cobra's troops until the organization went underground in 1989.

Sea Slugs are chosen from the ranks of EELs (Cobra frogmen). As such, they are qualified in underwater demolitions, small boat tactics, and a wide range of SONAR gear. Specialized Sea Slug training concentrates on the use of the SEA RAY Tactical Submersible and its variants. The three phases of SEA RAY training are: river sand ports, deep ocean, and Arctic. The training cadre expects a 35% attrition rate during the Arctic phase.
"The SEA RAY is coated with a rubberized damper that sends back an extremely indistinct "bounce" on all known SONARs. It is also equipped with a noise generator that can mimic the sounds produced by a humped-back whale. It has almost no heat signature and sits low in the water when on the surface. In other words, they are very hard to detect and once you've found them, you have to deal with the Sea Slugs that man them!"
