* TraumaCongaLine: Snake-Eyes falls victim to this in the first arc of ''Origins'': First he has his face ruined in combat, then while he's waiting to have it restored with plastic surgery he's injured again by the clinic being bombed. His face [[ScarsAreForever would have been restorable]] if he hadn't taken off to rescue the other members of the Joes on their mission against Chimera; and then, at the climax of the arc, ''[[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill he has his head set on fire]]''. We don't ever see what he looks like under the mask, but it's certainly not pretty.

After that, the story took in the ''G.I. Joe: Cobra Civil'' War a major turn as the various leaders of Cobra, which up till then focused on maintaining a low profile, tried to prove themselves worthy of the mantle of Cobra Commander by striking against G.I. Joe and against each other. These various attacks cause major damage to the Joes and cause political pressure to force them to downsize. A new character called Krake won the prize, and the story ended with the appointment with a new Cobra Commander. A new series called ''G.I. Joe: Cobra Command'' was published detailing the reign of this new Commander. Whereas the previous Commander insisted on secrecy and stealth, focused on subversion and behind-the-scenes manipulation and secret technological development, and was willing to tolerate some independence among his subordinates, the new Commander is far more militaristic, controlling and openly aggressive. He launches Cobra into the limelight first by using Cobra's massive arsenal to conquer and effectively destroy an entire nation, and then by exposing G.I. Joe to the world.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Deep-cover operative Chuckles and his handler Jinx try and infiltrate Cobra. Jinx is discovered and Chuckles has to kill her(after falling in love with her) to prove his loyalty to Cobra. Eventually Xamot reveals that he knew Chuckles was a Joe all along, and basically forced him to kill her [[ForTheLulz just for the hell of it.]] Chuckles, however, eventually impresses Cobra Commander enough that CC hands him a loaded rifle and gives him permission to shoot Xamot. Chuckles mutters "Yo Joe", then swings around and kills Cobra Commander, then finishes off his mission by detonating a Cobra warhead and destroying the base, costing them hundreds of millions of dollars in materiel and personnel. While this does put Cobra into flux for a while, it's a ''bad'' sort of flux, where all the top rank are battling for control, and when one of them eventually becomes the new Cobra Commander, he's ''much'' less concerned with Cobra's public image and begins to take the fight to G.I. Joe in a big way.
