Villain Overview

It's now or never!
~ Tomax and Xamot in the G.I. Joe arcade game.

Tomax and Xamot, also known together as the Crimson Twins, are recurring antagonists in the G.I. Joe series. They not only serve as COBRA's Crimson Guard, but are also Cobra Commander's financiers in his evil schemes.


Sunbow series

G.I. Joe: An American Hero

Tomax and Xamot are the major antagonists and first introduced in the G.I. Joe mini-series "Pyramid of Darkness". They appear as the commanders of the Crimson Guard, as well as the heads of Extensive Enterprises. Unlike the comics, in which they are the most loyal supporters of Cobra Commander, the twins in the cartoon were often trying to seize power for themselves, although they have little support from other Cobra members such as Destro and the Baroness, and their attempts are usually quashed by Cobra Commander. They share a psychic link, and feel one another's pain, which the Joes use to their advantage several times in battle.

At the beginning of the second season, Tomax and Xamot join Doctor Mindbender and Destro in creating Serpentor, also having grown tired of Cobra Commander's failures. But as soon as Serpentor is brought to life and orders his attack and invasion of the United States, Tomax and Xamot are the first to point out the sheer impossibility of such an attack. Their objections are quickly silenced however when Serpentor begins to throttle them.

G.I. Joe: The Movie

In the film, they side with Golobulus, and are seen fighting the Joes in the final battle, until a huge explosion destroys all of Cobra-La, forcing the Crimson Twins to escape. Their fate is left unknown.

G.I. Joe: Renegades

Tomax and Xamot appeared in the series having psychic abilities that can allow them to force others to do their bidding, creating their own cult. When the Joes exposed their scheme, they escaped with Dr. Mindbender, but end up being experimented by the latter for the intent of improving Bio-Vipers weapons for Cobra Commander. Eventually, they broke free and escape, but not after they manipulate Baroness and Mindbender into fighting each other to cover their escape.

Powers and Abilities

Aside from being unnaturally agile, the Crimson Twins have a psychic link that, unfortunately, forces them to feel each other's pain.
