* MightyWhitey: Anyone else notice that Snake Eyes, who is in the top percentile of his class, happens to be a white former street urchin? Amusingly, Snake Eyes being [[MisBlamed a white super-ninja comes directly from the comics]], which were written by a Japanese-American. Well, at least Storm Shadow was Japanese-American too... Oddly, it seems in the movie version both of the top ninjas aren't Japanese, given that both actors for Storm Shadow are Korean; he even speaks Korean in the movie. And the actor who plays the younger Storm Shadow is Chinese American. So ''everyone but the Japanese are awesome ninjas''. Good to know.

* ViewersAreMorons: When the Doctor says "We eliminated all self-preservation in them." Destro's response is "English, doctor?"

* CanonCharacterAllAlong:
** Destro's M.A.R.S. armaments company is the main villain, but the members are the usual members of Cobra (The Baroness, Storm Shadow, Zartan, etc). The only CanonForeigner is the Doctor...or so it seems. At the end of the film, [[spoiler:the Doctor reveals that he is taking control of M.A.R.S. and turning it into Cobra with himself as Commander. Yes, the Doctor is Cobra Commander.]]

-> '''Joe:''' You mean, "haystack."
-> '''Man:''' Right, sorry. He's going to be as hard to spot as a haystack in a coal mine.

* CaptureAndReplicate: This was Cobra's plot [[spoiler:when they used agents in the President's Secret Service detail to capture him]] so that Zartan can shape his physical appearance after him and use his name to accuse the Joes of being {{rogue agent}}s in ''Retaliation''.

* QuicklyDemotedWoman: Scarlett seems to be afflicted with a version of this. Despite being a (supposedly) brilliant, highly capable operative and well-respected, long-standing member of G.I. Joe, her role in the film is almost entirely limited to serving to enable new recruit Ripcord's various exploits. ''And'', in fairness, [[BoomHeadshot shooting guys in the face with exploding bolts]] from her crossbow.
