Jaguar Warriors were the Aztec's version of SEAL Team 6

Mexico is home to one of history’s most unique elite forces: the Aztec Empire’s Jaguar Warriors. Armed with wooden swords studded with obsidian and wearing the skin of jaguars as a uniform, the Jaguar Warriors were the most feared warfighters of the Aztec Empire. Becoming a Jaguar Warrior was one of the few ways commoners could become nobility – but troops were only awarded status after showing great prowess in the field.
