  • http://www.generalsjoes.com Justin

    Air Track Sniper at your service! YO JOE.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Yes! Did you check your Cobra name?

    • Brian Morin

      Sounds like somthing you do when checking on your FedEx shipment. Where’s my package? Let me Air-Track that for you.

  • Brian Morin

    I’m Snow Job. Better get working on my red beard.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      AHH! One of the few possible combinations that yield an ACTUAL G.I. Joe. Let’s go with your Cobra name.. Wild Viper!

  • http://lbamtoyreview.blogspot.com LBAM

    Bullshot. And apparently, SEAL.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Bullshot would be a dangerous name to put on a kid’s action figure box. Just a paint smudge away from a lawsuit!

  • http://kayoticmayhem.com MzKayotic

    Leather Light Seal?!? WTH?!? I sound like a fabulous diva not a Joe!!!

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Leather Light. Could definitely see that as a Joe name, but for a Navy SEAL? probably not. And now that I look at it, it kinda sounds more like something you’d find at an adult bookstore. Maybe we’ll go with your Cobra codename?

  • http://www.theterrordrome.com Jason

    My G.I. Joe Codename would be:
    - Air Head
    - Pilot

    Apparently I wouldn’t make a good Joe, guess I’m more of a Cobra guy (Night Skull).

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Air Head IS something they would have put out there in the 90s, and its a nice nod to the candy! (cross promotion opportunity). I do like your Cobra name though – very intimidating. Could challenge CC for power…

  • http://@danuthman Daniel Uthman

    Code name: Bull Line
    Specialty: SEAL
    Place of birth: Winchester, Va.

    Apparently I’m a Navy special ops guy who has trouble telling the truth!

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      I love it. The file card writes itself! I’ll get one up asap!

  • http://www.rediscoverthe80s.com Jason G aka SockofFleagulls

    Air Slam, Tank Commander.
    Sounds like I’ll be taking a page out of the A-Team movie and trying to fly tanks.

    Maybe I should try Cobra, cause this doesn’t sound too safe.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Air Slam – HAH! I can see something about his love of the air guitar on his filecard..

  • JayT

    I’m Air Duty, a pilot.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Couldn’t be more perfect name for a pilot. Awesome!

  • http://coldslitherpodcast.com Classick Material

    Joe Codename: Air Finder, Specialty: SEAL
    Cobra Codename: Night Viper, Specialty: Pilot

    This is awesome!

  • http://tvandfilmtoys.com Engineernerd

    Air Out? Really? That just sounds unfortunate, but I’m SEAL so back off.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Air Out definitely sounds like the Joe who’s assigned to cleaning socks and boots. What about your Cobra name?

      • http://tvandfilmtoys.com Engineernerd

        Night Vulture – Pilot

        Actually that works out. Probably flies cargo planes at night.

        • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

          just don’t end up like Tom Hanks character in Cast Away. Maybe bring a volleyball on all flights just in case.

  • Greymattersplat

    Apparently, I am a pilot called “Cross Ball”

    • Greymattersplat

      I’m wrong. It’s “Cross Proof”. I should pay more attention.

      Also, “Cross Ball” is funny as hell…

      • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

        You might need to stay Cross Ball, and we can say there was an error at the orientation and sign in. Awesome!

  • Brandon Atkinson

    Snow Blast, Paratrooper

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      lots of paratroopers – welcome to the squadron!

  • http://tvandfilmtoys.com Engineernerd

    I have to say the number of SEALS here is a bit surprising statistically.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      SEALS and paratroopers galore. All children of the 80s must have been conceived at Christmas time..

    Round Wing (SEAL)? That’s not a codename, it’s an appetizer!

    Cobra name is Bio Devil (Pilot), much better. Guess I’m going to the Snake Side

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      ooh Bio Devil is intimidating. and yes, Round Wing makes me hungry

  • Firefly_Cobra

    Air Wing – Sniper! (GI JOE has been infiltrated )

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker


  • Lamar The Revenger

    Bull Finder. SEAL. Yo Joe! Snow Viper. Pilot? Cobra?

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      I dig Bull Finder the SEAL, sounds rough and tough. Snow Viper is cool, but seems like something they must have already done. If not, you are the first! They need *somebody* to combat Snow Job, Blizzard, and Iceberg!

  • http://rapidcitycomic.com josh dahl

    Air Wing

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      welcome to the squadron of paratroopers – signed, Double Wing.

  • Doran

    Field General Bull Track. I likey.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Bull Track does sound like a no-funny business field general. I wouldn’t cross him!

  • Joseph

    Tank Commander

    Ninja Warrior

    As Air Roll does that mean I put jets on Tanks? :P

    Also, who doesn’t want to be a ninja? However… with a name like Night Buster… it leads me to think of sex somehow…

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Night Buster sounds like something from Arrested Development. I can see Air Roll as a legit Joe name though!

  • Steelbolt

    Leo–Field general

    So I’m a field general named Short Dog??? Really?? Ay yi yi…

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Short Dog sounds like a rejected member of Sgt. Slaughter’s Renegades. Maybe stick with the name you already have- Steelbolt!

  • More0_0Than

    Sky Job the SEAL or Toxo-Viper the pilot…

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Sky Job sounds dirty. Toxo-Viper already exists. Hm. We need to work on yours. Use a middle name in place of the first initial?

  • http://www.facebook.com/mbritb Morgan Buchanan

    I’m Cross Track, your Weapons Expert!!

    Or I can be Major Head – Specializing in Communications (what exactly would I be “communicating”??)

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Cross Track works, Major Head just sounds nasty.

  • http://www.shezcrafti.com ShezCrafti

    Air Roll Paratrooper reporting for duty.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Second Air Roll I’ve seen – all of you dang JH’s out there! It’s a good name though!

  • John comer

    Air speed
    Ft Stewart GA

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      I like the name Air Speed. I can see the uniform.

  • TreBionne

    I’m Sky Finder the renegade

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Sky Finder works! Maybe a top-shelf pilot that Spirit recruited while on a trip to the southwest?

  • Suzan Woodruff

    Name: Sargeant Proof
    Specialty: Paratrooper/Seal (I’m on the cusp ;o)
    Birthplace: Of COURSE it’s CLASSIFIED!

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Sargeant Proof! Sounds like a drinker.

  • shaun hockney

    i am sargeant roll and i am a field general

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      I can see Sgt. Roll’s “Roll Call” being an educational snippet they put at the end of a 30 minute cartoon in the 80s.

  • http://geekyvixen.tumblr.com Stacey Rader

    Sergeant Town, Paratrooper. My name sounds like something you make up on the fly when Duke catches you spray painting graffiti on the side of the barracks. “I’m gonna need your name, soldier.” “Ummmmmmmmm, Sergeant…Town?”

    My Cobra name is no better: Scrap Scorpion, Driver. Apparently I drive a beater HISS Tank. I guess we can’t all be the Baroness.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      ha! Great backstory to accompany Sgt. Town. Yeah, those are somewhat disappointing names – darn random code name generator! Maybe when we do the Transformer name generator you’ll get something more bad-ass!

  • Richard

    Star Slam – Tank Commander

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Star Slam! Sounds like someone I wouldn’t mess with. That guy can slam stars!

      • Richard

        Hmmm… Just got a free personalized dog tag with my G.I. Joe retaliation collector’s edition…

        • Howard Decker

          And you have a code name for it!

  • Sean

    Sergeant Shot – Weapons Expert. hahaha It fits!

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Sean! Nice to see you on here. I appreciate it. Yes, the Sgt. Shot codename is quite appropriate! And being an actual weapons expert doesn’t hurt, either. You do know of course, your G.I.Joe vehicle will have to be the VaultMobile. The toy version will sell like hotcakes.

  • Todd

    Sky-Light, im one of the renegades trained by Sgt S
    laughter. Guess that makes me proficiency in alk forms of armed and unarmed combat. Plus having the reputation of having survived the Slaughter house. Cool.

    • Todd

      Birthlace: Saskatoon Saskatchewan, Canada

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Awesome!! Great backstory.

  • Macie

    So, apparently I’m Cross Down, Ninja. Cool.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Cross Down sounds like a really soft blanket. Maybe you are a Joe comforter, coming to the aid of those who have been traumatized in battle. And you’re also a ninja, just in case.

  • http://blakeplissken.com/ Blake

    Mine Joe name is “Snow”…………oh, crap…………”Finder”.


    Stand back Duke, Snake,……I’ll find that snow.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Always gotta have someone who can sniff out the snow. Ooh, maybe you are a Yellow Snow Finder? So they don’t accidentally step in pee! I got nothin.

  • Morgan Bailey

    Cross Track, weapons expert from Cortez, CO. That almost makes sense.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      yeah, I like that one!

  • http://- QuickFoot

    “He turns the tide to be red!!”

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      both great – and I love the mini-backstories!

  • omar harris

    Back Town: Ranger

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Sounds like he enlisted to escape growing up in a small, small town

  • Stephen

    Lol I’m sergeant speed – pilot! Cool joe name

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      yep, it works well! Unless he earned the codename because of his uncontrollable addiction to Stacker 2 and 5 hour Energy. But probably not.

  • the dork knight

    omg im air case, navy seal

      Air Case. Not bad

  • Craig Moore

    G.I. Joe: Hard Job. Sniper.
    Cobra: Crimson Viper. Demolitions.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      I guess being a sniper would be considered a “hard job”, I like the Cobra one a lot.

  • Miguel

    GI Joe – CrossTown – Weapons Expert
    Cobra – Major Scorpian – Communications

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      CrossTown is the guy that can get you from point A to B in a jiffy. Major Scorpion definitely works as a Cobra name!

        nice! I like it!

  • Brad Foster

    G.I. JOE
    Codename: Hard Shot
    Specialty: Renegade

    Codename: Crimson Eel
    Specialty: Officer

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Definitely two of the cooler codenames I’ve seen. Crimson Eel would be a great action figure!




    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      whoa! And I didn’t even consult astrological career tendencies when I made the chart. Coincidence!

  • http://herebewonder.com herebewonder

    Joe name: Hard Eagle, Ranger
    Cobra Name: Crimson Guard, Astronaut

    My Joe name sounds like a \”dark and edgy\” remake of Spirit, but being a CG Astronaut is kind of cool.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Hard Eagle is like Spirit’s codename after he is trained in the Arashikage ways by the Hard Master!

  • Erik

    Round Foot sounds like a diease from the 1800s, not part of a daring, highly trained special mission force.

    • http://underscoopfire.com Howie Decker

      Yes! You do NOT want to contract Round Foot in these pre-penicillin days
