No don't think Kenny Rogers! ;-)
I don't think this has ever been mentioned and if it has I apologize and as always I don't know anywhere to put this except in the "genera discussion" thread.
Just was wondering how Snake Eyes got that code name. Alot of folks back in the days thought he was a cobra.
Snake Eyes in gambling terms is kinda of a bad luck roll.
Perhaps Snake Eyes hangs out in these high Sierra mountains and drives down to Reno or Vegas on the weekend.
Could explain why he only lives in a cabin. Cuz he blows his wad of cash at the casino!
I am kinda joking but it would be a cool character development if we were to learn ol' Snake Eyes is a gambling fool!

As far as character creation, it just means that he's bad-awe and you're out of luck of you run into him. Wierd name, in that it's not really describing him, so much as a consequence of someone else...?
Considering they fight Snake themed enemies and he's dressed in black, it really was a poor choice for a name. Just horrible really, it's confusing! I don't blame a single international joe toy series for tossing him with the enemy.
Better than his prototype name...Spook. Makes sense, but holy shit that would have been a problem.
And I don't think he plays dice, he's a poker guy. Nobody's gonna study his ugly mug for tells.

In the comic series the character had incredibly bad luck. He got shot up in Vietnam, his family was killed in a car crash, his adopted ninja clan was splintered as a result of his entrance, he lost his face and vocal cords in helicopter crash, ect. ect. I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff- these are just a few examples of his where he got his "bad-luck" code name.
