GI Joe

Our Real American Heroes.

Scarlett

 Real Name: Shana O'Hara

Rank: Lieutenant

Birthplace: Atlanta, GA

Voice Actor: Natalia Cigliuti

  • Action Girl: A Double Subversion. She's supposedly a desk jockey Army intelligence officer, who for some reason is put in charge of a field operation leading GIs. It turns out she has a very good reason for being there and is a competent soldier.
  • The Archer: Uses a crossbow as a nod to the character's history.
  • Brief Accent Imitation: During "Busted" when Scarlett disguises herself as trailer park baby mama complete with the most overbearing accent you can imagine. Easily her Crowning Moment of Funny.
  • Disappeared Dad: Her father was a Cobra scientist who was said to not have survived when his lab blew-up.
  • Ensign Newbie: A borderline example.
  • The Lancer
  • Memento MacGuffin: Her locket her father gave her.
  • Redheaded Hero
  • Running Gag: Any time someone says they like a particular product or service, Scarlett reveals it's a COBRA subsidiary, and reminds the person that COBRA is evil.
  • Translator Buddy: She always understands what Snake Eyes might be "saying".

Duke

 Real Name: Conrad Hauser

Rank: Sergeant

Birthplace: St Louis, Missouri

Voice Actor: Jason Marsden

  • A Father to His Men: True to his original 1983 file-card characterisation, he consistently puts the welfare of his subordinates above everything else.
  • All-American Face
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: What's that, Duke? Those people need help? But what about Flint chasing you down... oh, never mind.
  • The Engineer: Not quite, but he's had ordnance tech training, and has "cleared his share of mines".
  • The Hero
  • Honour Before Reason: He stick around to help people, even if it means risking capture.
    • A flashback shows that he even refused a medal for saving a comrade's life because it was his error that caused the situation in the first place (in his mind, anyway). Also, he and Lady Jaye are tight because he disobeyed orders to save her life.
  • Ink Suit Actor: Duke's facial structure is a lot like Marsden's.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right: Disobeyed orders to save Lady Jaye's life.

Snake Eyes

 Real Name: ?

Rank: ?

Birthplace: ?

Voice Actor: Danny Cooksey

  • Badass Longcoat: Picks one up after the team starts moving towards civilian clothing.
  • Clothing Damage: It's not really played for fanservice, but his bodysuit tends to take a mauling on a significantly more regular basis than most of the other Joes' outfits.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Hello, Sword Duel. Snake Eyes would like to introduce you to his friend, Grenades.
  • Dynamic Entry: He's almost never seen traveling with the other Joes at the beginning of an episode. He prefers to make a more dramatic entrance, out of nowhere, occasionally by dropping into view kicking someone in the head.
  • Dual-Wielding
  • The Faceless
  • Glass Cannon: You have to hit him first, but if you can get him down, this Snake Eyes has a tendency to stay down for a while.
  • Implausible Fencing Powers: He can block lasers with his swords. Lasers. As Roadblock says:
  • Informed Loner: Yeah, he hangs out with no less than four other people. The only reason he's there, though, is because Scarlett asked him to be.
  • Leitmotif: To emphasize the fact that he is a ninja, anytime Snake Eyes is on screen doing anything the music switches to Eastern pipes.
  • McNinja
  • Mysterious Past: While we're shown how he became a kickass Ninja, we don't know his real name.
  • Nightmare Face: Implied. When the Dreadnoks took off his visor, they really didn't like what they saw under there. In "Revelations - Part 1," it is implied that the lab explosion is the reason he wears a full face mask.
  • Poor Communication Kills: Being a mute makes exonerating yourself from a crime you didn't commit really difficult.
  • The Ace: Snake Eyes does something hilariously overpowered in almost every episode
  • The Speechless, The Voiceless: His throat was cut with a shuriken.
  • Stealth Hi Bye: He and Batman should have a competition. And no one would know who the winner was.

Voice Actor: Andrew Kishino

  • Always Someone Better: Storm Shadow always felt second to Snake Eyes.
  • Cain and Abel: Jinx describes the relationship between Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes as this.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Though inverted from the norm, as heroic Snake Eyes is dressed in black, and Anti-Villain Storm Shadow is dressed in white.
  • Combat Pragmatist: After Snake Eyes brings a grenade to a sword fight, Storm Shadow uses explosives in his next engagement, and sees no problem working with COBRA if it helps him kill Snake Eyes.
  • Curb Stomp Battle: The only people who have lasted longer than a few seconds in a fight with him are Snake Eyes and Jinx.
  • Dual-Wielding
  • Instant Awesome, Just Add Ninja
  • It's Personal: He believes Snake Eyes murdered his uncle.
    • It was actually an accident that Hard Master was poisoned. Storm Shadow wanted to poison Snake Eyes but the cups were switched beforehand. When Storm Shadow learned of this, he dropped his grudge (but not his hatred) and went ronin.
  • Jerkass
