On the packaging of the original Hasbro toy, Snake Eyes was said to be proficient in 12 different unarmed fighting systems (Karate, Kung-Fu, Jujitsu) and highly skilled in the use of edged weapons. He had received extensive training in mountaineering, underwater demolitions, jungle, desert and arctic survival, and some form of holistic medicine. He was a qualified expert of all NATO and Warsaw pact small arms.

The Snake Eyes movie is said to center on the character seeking revenge for his father’s death by joining the Arashikage Clan, a ninja clan based in Japan.
