The Arashikage Clan is ninja clan based in Japan, although it has members all over the world. Its most famous members are Storm Shadow and Snake-Eyes. The clan and its members have played a major part in the ongoing battle between G.I. Joe and Cobra.

There are three here who wear the hexagram of our ninja clan on their right arms. They are the unbroken lines.

There are three here who do not wear the hexagram. They are the broken lines.

We six, together, complete the circle. All forces are in balance and harmony.

The Young Master, G.I. Joe #66


As a self-taught ninja, Bushido is not a member of the Arashikage clan. Likewise, although Night Fox has had ninja training, he is also not part of the Arashikage clan.

Budo is a samurai, not a ninja, a fact in which he took some pride. However, in 2016 Budo was accepted into the Arashikage clan, and traveled to San Francisco to take over the martial arts academy there.
