Swamp-Viper











Previous character: Black Dragon
Next character: Black Dragon Trooper

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Swamp-Vipers were never animated.

Headcanon

Swamp-Vipers were introduced to Cobra's forces in late 1992, with their appearance represented by Version 1. They ranked in the fourth tier of Vipers, alongside generics, Jungle Vipers, Night-Vipers, and Range-Vipers. Their numbers were small since many of the original Swamp-Viper candidates were re-routed into the Venomization program to become Swamp Rats.

SWAMP-VIPER members are the primary coastal defenders of COBRA Island. While guarding the fetid marshes used to be a punishment, numerous invasions on COBRA COMMANDER'S home soil have created a need for an elite class of trooper specifically trained for this duty. They know its maze-like system of shallow canals and swamp land better than the native snakes, crocodiles, and Komodo dragons. Although these interconnecting waterways are abundantly stocked with ravenously hungry reptiles, the SWAMP-VIPER feels right at home in these hostile conditions. They wear fully protective uniforms with oxygen re-breather units built into their bulbous helmets, allowing them to hunt silently, half submerged until their prey wanders within striking distance. They live for the thrill of capturing anyone or anything that invades their territory.
From COBRA COMMANDER's Files: "I will not take any chances; I've personally selected a detachment of the most ruthless SWAMP-VIPER members to accompany me during my meeting with BLACK DRAGON on Anaconda Beach."
