''Cobra'' is a 1986 action film starring Creator/SylvesterStallone, produced by Creator/WarnerBros in association with Creator/TheCannonGroup. The film is loosely based on Paula Gosling's novel ''Fair Game'', which nine years later would get another adaptation of the same name. All three versions bear very little resemblance to each other.

* FollowTheLeader: Cobretti clearly went to [[DirtyHarry Harry Callahan's]] Boy Scout Camp as a child, and apparently loved the mentor so much that, once he grew up, he took Callahan's partner Reni Santoni, and even once again named him Gonzalez. He took Dirty Harry's villain Andy Robinson as well, though the latter is now merely a well-meaning jerk and a compulsively By-the-BookCop.
