* 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.]]

-> '''Man:''' He's going to be hard to spot, like a needle in a coal mine. -> '''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''.

Scarlett was never actually demoted
* 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.

* FatalFamilyPhoto: The Baroness makes Duke promise that he'll take care of brother and not let him get hurt. He is of course killed, and is her StartOfDarkness. [[spoiler: Subverted, he didn't actually die]].

** A mild example with Baroness, who despite initially seeming to be a strong antagonist loyal to M.A.R.S and resentful of Duke, is ultimately [[spoiler:made out to be a pawn thanks to the reveal that she was never on their side of her own volition, and that her brother had used nanites to brainwash her into becoming evil. ThePowerOfLove basically snaps her out of her brainwashing, instigating a full-fledged HellFaceTurn, and she ultimately does her bit to kick the asses of her former employers while escaping with Duke]].[[note]]Baroness was actually brainwashed at first in one continuity (at least); it just so happens when it wore off nobody noticed because she liked Destro enough to stay.[[/note]]

** Baroness, a strong female villain, is reduced to being nothing more than a love interest who is bandied about between Destro, her husband [[spoiler:who her brother and Destro forced her to marry just to steal his research]], and Duke. Not to mention the BS that is [[spoiler:the reveal that she was never on their side of her own volition, and that her brother had used nanites to brainwash her into becoming evil]].[[note]]Baroness was actually brainwashed at first in one continuity (at least); it just so happens when it wore off nobody noticed because she liked Destro enough to stay.[[/note]]
