Viper Guard











Previous character: G.I. Jane
Next character: Sergeant Misha Zubenkov

 

Animated Appearances

To my knowledge, Viper Guards were never animated.

Headcanon

Established upon Cobra's re-emergence in 1991, the Viper Guard were the Military Police of the Viper Corps, serving primarily as internal security, though also serving as wardens for prisoners and hostages. With no perks and only barely distinct uniforms, they hold the same rank as the generic Vipers from which they are recruited, and their appearance is represented by Version 1.

COBRA VIPER troops are the grunts of the COBRA legions. If there's a low-level, down-and-dirty job that needs doing, these are the guys who are sent in to do it. They wear multi-layered body armor and wrap-around helmets with built-in radio telecommunications gear, and carry multi-burst laser pistols, commando rifles, and grenade launchers. They are assigned to different divisions and locations. Those who display excessive meannes and cold-hearted detachment are assigned to the prison where captured enemies and hostages are kept. Besides guarding the cells, they assist COBRA INTERROGATOR in the retrieval of information from prisoners. The more a prisoner resists, the better the COBRA VIPER troops like it, because the interrogator lets them apply physical punishment whenever someone refuses to cooperate.
"It's a real party around here when we capture a member of the G.I. JOE team. We get to use our full complement of interrogation tactics."
