Less Intimidating Members of the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad

Recall, if you will, Kill Bill’s Deadly Viper Assassination Squad: Beatrix Kiddo (“Black Mamba”), Oren Ishii (“Cottonmouth”), Vernita Green (“Copperhead”), Budd (“Sidewinder”) and Elle Driver (“California Mountain Snake”). Presumably, had Kiddo not made good on the imperative stated in the film’s title, Bill could have extended membership to other murderers. He did, after all, lack the redhead and brunette needed to make a complete set.

Among available, though far less badass, code names:
Because I just rewatched Volume One on IFC, that’s why.

Above: the eyelash viper, unless you think it can’t possibly be intimidating.


  1. If I ever (God willing) become a deadly assassin, I will be called Beak-nosed Worm Snake. I was searching for a code name. Thanks for the help.

  2. I dunno, "red carpet viper" might be a pretty kinky name for the obligatory redhead.

  3. Julia: Glad to be of service. If I had to choose, I'd go for Eyelash Boa.

    Sam: Either that or a particularly vicious woman who frequents Hollywood premieres.
