Silent Rip is a member of the Cheat Commandos. He is a stealth-type person whose main roles seem to be reconnaissance and sniping. In his own words, "[sneaking up on people] is what I do best." He has the Loud Noise Silencer (which appears to be an ordinary pillow). He is usually seen in a jacket and helmet with a microphone attached. When he first appeared as an action figure, his jacket was brown and buttons grey-green. They have since been reversed, or at least, this is an intentional discrepency between action figure and cartoon versions. His name is a reference to flatulence.

He features fairly prominently in Cheat Commandos Adventures, although his alleged talent for stealth has yet to be displayed. Appropriately, Rip tosses a smoke grenade during Commandos in the Classroom, a device that both encourages stealth and releases a cloud of gaseous material.

Homestar Runner owns the Silent Rip action figure, or at least used it for the purpose of the commercial.

Silent Rip is one of the Cheat Commandos featured in the first Cheat Commandos figurine set.

In Cheat Commandos: Two Part Episode: Part 1, it is stated that he is "way too concerned with acronyms". In that episode, he commented on two acronyms, which resulted in Admiral Flashfight firing him from the Commandos. However, once Gunhaver proved how important he was to the team, Silent Rip was reinstated.
