The Deadly Viper Assassination Squad (DiVAs) are fictional characters in Tarantino's Kill Bill saga. They are a gang of assassins under the lead of Bill. Their codenames are the names of snakes.

The members of the "DiVAS" consist of the following:


  • The female members of The DiVAS wear similar outfits to the women in the Ted V.Mikels exploitation film The Doll Squad.
  • The references to five different venomous snakes may be inspired by the 1978 Shaw Brothers kung fu film The Five Deadly Venoms.
