One of the few mysterious and the more dangerous members of the G.I. Joe Team, Snake-Eyes served as a recon ranger in the jungles of Southeast Asia. All that can be said after that stint is he went on a long sabbatical, most believe it was in Japan. Some say he was training with the same ninja clan that begat Storm Shadow. We know his fighting skills have become more efficient and deadly. Rumors surfaced that when he was recruited into the Joe Team by Hawk, he was hunting rabbits at the time... with his bare hands.

Appearances: Rise of Cobra
In the movie, Snake Eyes' background is rebooted with him being an abandoned 10 year old child who found his way to the home of Arashikage Clan, where he battled the young Thomas Arashikage when he attacked him for stealing food from them. However, the orphan's ability to fight impressed the Hard Master as he gave Snake Eyes his name while bringing him under his wing. Over time, losing to him at first in their sparrings, Snake Eyes eventually overpowered Arashikage and gained the favor of the Hard Master. Hard Master is killed offscreen with one of Thomas' swords, while Thomas is seen running off in midsts of the chaos. Since then, Snake Eyes has chosen to take a vow of silence. Learning that Storm Shadow is now a member of Cobra, Snake Eyes fights him before stabbing him, allowing him to fall into icy water in Cobra's Arctic base, leaving his fate unknown. Snake Eyes returns to The Pit, with the surviving members of G.I. Joe.
