* "Blind Idiot" Translation : During the "war race" scene, we can see the French nuclear football with very prominent labels. One stands for "arm", or rather the French word for it. The human appendage, not the weapon-related term. Maybe they throw their nukes by hand?

* RetiredBadass: [[LastOfHisKind Joe Colton]]. The last scene of the initial trailer features Colton kicking ass by shooting at Cobra mooks with an assault rifle while in the bed of a fishtailing [[CoolCar El Camino]]. Considering he's played by BruceWillis, this comes as no surprise.

In December 2015, it was announced that Hasbro and Paramount are collaborating on a shared Hasbro movie universe, with ''G.I. Joe'' as the springboard (though it's unclear if it will follow from this movie or have a reboot) leading to movies based off ''WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Visionaries}}'', ''Franchise/{{Micronauts}}'' and ''[[ComicBook/RomSpaceknight ROM]]''.

* LoopholeAbuse: When Roadblock asks General Colton if he would serve in the military again, the latter states that the DOD [[note]]Department Of Defense[[/note]] doesn't allow retirees to "un-retire". However, he states that they say nothing about re-enlisting, so he uses that to get back in.

** Roadblock and Duke have a bet where they try to shoot a cupcake off a post. Duke uses a rifle and very carefully aims his shot (and misses). Roadblock grabs his M2 and lets loose, blowing up the cupcake and pillar. Duke's protests about the unfairness of this fall on deaf ears.

** In addition, if the Zeus satellite just uses gravity to project the tungston rod, it would be very difficult to achieve that speed, because despite being released from an environment with zero air-resistance and hence zero drag, air-resistance within the atmosphere would increase drag and hence cause deceleration (given enough time and space, the rod would eventually decelerate to terminal velocity). The rod would have to ''already'' reached maximum velocity before it hit the stratosphere (or at least, the thicker part of the stratosphere). The rod would need to be fired downwards so gravity wasn't solely responsible for its acceleration and speed.
** In any case, the potential energy in this example is contained in a tungston rod which doesn't have a high cross-sectional area over which the energy is to act if it is converted to kinetic energy when it hits something. In other words, if the tungston rod was to hit the ground point-on with the 'energy of a nuclear missile', it would most like head straight into the earth for an unspecified depth and disturb the ground around it, but it wouldn't cause anywhere near the devastation or after-math of an ''actual'' nuclear weapon because all that energy is concentrated at a point with a force vector into the earth, not outwards at the stuff on top of it (like an actual nuclear bomb).

** At the end of the first movie, the MadScientist turned himself into Cobra Commander and was immediately arrested and put in prison. However, even if becoming the Commander was his eventual endgame, before that point [=McCullen=] was in charge and it was his plan for [[spoiler:Zartan to impersonate the president]] and Storm Shadow answered to him (and they both only knew the Commander in his MadScientist persona, or at least the viewer was never shown anything different). However in this movie, both Storm Shadow and Zartan are loyal only to the Commander, know exactly who he is like, they have a long association, it's all his big long-term plan and [=McCullen=] is completely irrelevant.

* CrazyPrepared: General Colton's house, which has armaments stored all over the place, ranging from handguns to assault rifles, to a grenade launcher and a light tank. We're left to wonder how Roadblock drove that out of suburbia to Fort Sumter without anyone taking notice.



* GravitySucks: The Zeus satellite just has to release the tungsten rod and gravity will do the work, pulling the rod down so hard its destructive force can be used as a weapon. This is different from reality, in that the satellite is in a stable orbit at nearly zero gravity, so releasing the tungsten rod would just mean that the rod would stay in the same stable orbit until something applied force to it, changing its velocity.

The satellite does seem to have a mechanism to shoot the rod despite Cobra Commander's claim, so he was probably just being dramatic.

* MsFanservice: Lady Jaye in a [[LadyInRed sexy red dress]], infiltrating a White House party. And before that, skimpy sport attire. And then there's the shot of her back while undressing; [[WatchingTheReflectionUndress though obscured by being a reflection]], you can still clearly see her thong-clad behind pretty clearly.

*** FridgeBrilliance kicks in when you consider that Cobra likely engineered it that way so they COULD do exactly this.
