* BloodlessCarnage: Seeing any blood beyond nosebleeds or tiny scrapes is extremely rare, at least up close.

* ActionGirl: Few and far between, as the stories tend to take place during WW2 and before. However, Soviet Lieutenant Yana Belinky, a pilot belonging to the infamous [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_Witches Night Witches]] is this in spades. Particularly notable that she is shown to be perhaps the most toughest and most capable character in the entire three part "Nachthexen Saga" - she is an ace pilot, quick witted and can survive in wilderness even while recovering from a bad leg injury. She is simply put, badass. She was also the first female lead character ever in Commando, appearing first in the story "Operation Nachthexen " in 2013.

** One of the weirdest examples has to be when an old Panzer Mark IV breaks itself out of a museum once it gets hit by a [[LightningCanDoAnything freak lightning]], coming to life in the late 70's to avenge something that happened decades earlier during the last days of WW2.

badass. She was also the first female lead character ever in Commando, appearing first in the story "Operation Nachthexen " in 2013. 2013.
** Another recent, notable female character is Dr. Jane Mallory who is an agent of the "Office of Scientific Investigation" (OSI). She can also hold her own in battle, is a remarkable undercover agent and has intense rivalry with Guy Tenby, an MI6 agent who leads the Convict Commandos.



** A recent addition are the [[ArmyOfThievesAndWhores Convict Commandos]] first appearing in 2011, and have since appeared in 24 stories to date. The convict commandos are, as their name would imply, formerly imprisoned soldiers now working for their pardon in all kinds of covert operations. Despite their nickname none of them have actual commando training, save perhaps their leader, a MI6 agent and a soldier as tough as they come.

*** As of recent, Commando issues seem to be featuring the Imperial Japanese army, navy and air force again, although not as much as issues involving the Nazis.

* YellowPeril: With the success of ''TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai'', this became more popular during TheSeventies, and considerably less so afterwards, thanks to a healthy dose of ValuesDissonance. in fact, the Imperial Japanese Army and Navy seem to have disappeared altogether from modern ''Commando'' issues.

* TheNeidermeyer: Officers who aren't well liked by the enlisted men often show up. If they're seen from the perspective of the troops, they're usually of the aforementioned GeneralFailure type, but when they're an important character themselves, their story is typically about them winning the respect of their troops. A relatively popular example is to team up a unit of rough and ready [=ANZACs=] with a [[StiffUpperLip by-the-book Englishman]].

A relatively popular example is to team up a unit of rough and ready [=ANZACs=] or a snarky American, usually a Texan, with a [[StiffUpperLip by-the-book Englishman]].


Added DiffLines:

* OneManArmy: Occasionally shows up in quite a few stories. In particular, Gurkhas tend to be depicted as cunning but extremely skilled badasses who are willing to fight off entire Japanese battalions by themselves.
