Once the Mamushi viper ninja clan was once considered one of the most feared ninja clans in all of Japan. No matter the efforts of the Shoguns’ armies of his personal ninja clans the Mamushi always slithered away only to regroup and strike again years later. It was only with the coming of the Western influence and the falling of the samurai class that the Mamushi clan fell to obscurity as did almost all of the ninja clans. For years the Mamushi retired to the mountains only coming down in dire need.

It was only during the World War II that the Mamushi stirred themselves from their mountainous retreat. Agents of the Emperor offered the Mamushi extravagant rewards if they would assist in the war effort. During the war many an Allied soldier fell to the fangs of the Mamushi. The very name of the Mamushi sent shivers down the spine of the enemies of the Emperor. Unfortunately for the Mamushi, the Japanese lost the war after the Americans bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The emperor formally surrendered unconditionally to the Americans. The Mamushi were of another mind and kept on fighting the occupiers. Unlike the soldiers of the Shogun of long ago, the American soldiers were experienced and resolute. In the end all most all of the Mamushi were hunted down and killed. The few survivors swore to never support the emperor again. Like ghost they once again disappeared into the mists. Decades past until there was only one of the Mamushi left, Kyoko Iwakura.

Before the untimely deaths of Senshudan One, Captain Lion Red was known to accompany a mysterious woman about Tokyo, much to the consternation of Princess Snowflake Pink, whom had romantic feelings towards Captain Lion Red. She tried to warn the others of the dangers of this unknown woman to no avail. They, except for Singer Sonic White, had the nerve to laugh at her. Princess Snowflake Pink determined that she must follow them. She couldn’t believe what she saw. The woman, who wore the shortest, tightest, dress of a dark green, clutched Captain Lion Red far too closely. And the insufferable man seemed to be oblivious to this act of seduction. Princess Snowflake Pink fumed as she crouched behind a bush spying on them.

It was when the pair entered a love hotel that Princess Snowflake Pink had to act. It took only a few tries and numerous apologizes later that she found the correct room. Captain Lion Red lay on a huge bed shaped like a heart. His shirt was missing and the woman in green was crouching over him. As Princess Snowflake Pink planted a Driving Snowstorm Kick to the door, she saw the woman lean forward into Captain Lion Red and plant a kiss upon his neck. Captain Lion Red started to convulse on the bed and foam from his lips. The woman stood and haughtily looked at Princess Snowflake Pink.

“You are too late Princess Snowflake Pink, for I have given Captain Lion Red the Kiss of the Mamushi upon this dolt.”

Princess Snowflake Pink could only gape at this before anger overcame her. She came rushing into the room attacking with her Lancing Icicle of Love, one of her most deadly of attacks. However, to her amazement the woman was able to block the strike. Princess Snowflake Pink was further amazed when the woman brought out a ninja-to. She couldn’t fathom where the woman could’ve hidden the weapon in that dress. The next Princess Snowflake Pink knew the woman was slashing at her in a blur of steel. It took her all to avoid the deadly blade. She had to call up her Snowflake Shield of Love to keep from being cut up.

The woman laughed scornfully in Princess Snowflake Pink’s face.

“Simpleton, you don’t know who you face. So let me illuminate you my Princess Snowflake Pink. You face the last of the Mamushi Viper ninjas. Soon you too shall enjoy the Kiss of Mamushi.”

Princess Snowflake Pink was horrified and step back only to fall to the floor after receiving a powerful kick that sent her shield flying off shattering into a million pink snowflakes. A devilish smile plastered itself on the woman’s face as she came in for the kill. She reversed the ninja-to to deliver final blow. However, the blow never came as there originated a roar from the bed and an explosive burst of energy that came from Captain Lion Red who flawlessly performed his Roaring Lion Flowing Fist. The energy blast slammed into the woman with the force of a runaway semi-truck. She was blown through a wall and plummeted two stories to the ground. Princess Snowflake Pink rushed over to the bed and helped Captain Lion Red to his feet.

“I thought you were dead,” Princess Snowflake Pink said.

Captain Lion Red smiled weakly and said, “It would take more than the Kiss of Mamushi to take out me. I’m made of stronger stuff than that.”

He slumped against her as they walked over to the new hole in the wall and looked down on the street. Both were taken aback. There was no body. However, neither of them was able to pursue Mamushi because Captain Lion Red was threatening to collapse in her arms. She had to get him back to Sensei Progress Green. Only Sensei Progress Green could hope to cure Captain Lion Red.

Later that same day a woman wrapped with bandages around her middle that protected her broken ribs boarded a flight at Narita international airport for a flight to Los Angeles. While her ribs hurt like the devil she couldn’t help but chuckle under her breathe. The Mamushi may be defeated but they always came back.


Like a typical ninja, Mamushi has no reluctance about killing. While she won’t go out of her way to commit wholesale slaughter, killing individuals is more in line with her training and upbringing. Those who’re killed by Mamushi are quickly forgotten because she’s thinking about the next target in line.

Mamushi is a deceitful assassin always using deception as the first weapon in her arsenal. As a ninja she has perfected the art of lies and confusion. It’s a rare day when Mamushi is honest to her opponents. Of course this is usually just before delivering a killing blow. Mamushi can be perverse in that way.

As the last of the Mamushi, Kyoko lives up to the ideals of the Mamushi Viper Clan. One of the strongest tenets of the clan was to always come back and get vengeance on those who’ve done wrong to the clan. Other tenets that she follows are to be secretive as possible and to know that the Mamushi are the greatest clan in Japan. Those who thwart the Mamushi are targets for the rest of their lives.


"The Kiss of the Mamushi is the deadliest of all."


Mamushi is a well-trained ninja skilled in the Mamushi Viper traditional taijutsu. Mamushi Viper taijutsu is a martial art that its practitioner with blows that are quite deadly. One of Kyoko’s most deadly attacks is an attack where she grabs her foe around the head and then throws them to the ground.

Mamushi keeps an arsenal of ninja weapons (ninja-to’s, shurikens, grenades and bombs) hidden around the world. She’s proficient in each and every one of them. In addition to her weapons, Mamushi wears a specially reinforced costume that protects her from most attacks.

There are two unique abilities that Kyoko has learned from being a member of the Mamushi Viper ninja clan. One is her ability to resist any poison, be it natural or manmade. There is a good reason for Kyoko to be immune to poisons. Her second exceptional is known as the Kiss of the Mamushi, which is a poisonous kiss that Kyoko can deliver after grabbing her victim. The kiss can be delivered so quickly that the victim isn’t aware of it until they drop dead.

Mamushi has trained almost all her life. As such she’s in tip top physical shape. Mamushi is an excellent runner, swimmer, and acrobat. However, Mamushi’s greatest ability is the ability to deceive. Many a victim has fallen to the Kiss of the Mamushi due to not knowing the danger they were in.


Kyoko is a slight but physically strong Asian woman. She’s an extremely attractive woman, with super model looks. Kyoko is the type of woman every man wants to be with and every other woman is envious of. She has long dark hair with a green streak in it. Kyoko has brown eyes that seem to look right through her foes. Of course, Kyoko is a master of disguise and only when on a mission does she forgo disguises.

When dressing for an assassination, Kyoko ties her hair back in the traditional Mamushi Viper ninja clan style. Her ninja nightsuit is made of high-tech fibers that can resist bullets. The suit covers her entire body up to her neck. It’s a dark black color much like leather. The inside of the sleeve from the elbow to the armpit is dark green with a scale-like pattern. This pattern is repeated on the outside of the pants from the knees to the hips.

Kyoko being an international actress has started in a number of movies. As such she wears the most expensive dresses and clothing that she can get. Often times Kyoko uses her skills in disguise use her skills to protect her identity from others. To date no one has connected the beautiful Kyoko Iwakura with the deadly Mamushi.
