* {{Technophobia}}: Cobra-La. All their "technology" including weapons and vehicles are entirely organic and they consider the human civilization and technology an abomination.
* TemptingFate: This film offers a classic example of an enemy who appears to be retreating, but is actually just getting out of the way of something worse. At the climax of the rather lengthy Paris chase scene, Snake Eyes abruptly lets go of the Cobra operatives' car after hanging on to it for the entire chase.
-->'''Baroness:''' He gave up!
-->'''Storm Shadow:''' He never gives up.
-->WHAM! [their car gets brutally T-boned by an oncoming train]
* TestosteronePoisoning: [=McCullen=] notes that with the fate of the world at stake, he and Duke can still get into a spat over Ana's affections.

''G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra'' is a 2009 action movie directed by Creator/StephenSommers, based on the Franchise/GIJoe franchise by Hasbro. The story follows two soldiers, Duke (Creator/ChanningTatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans). They are part of a squad which gets ambushed while delivering four hi-tech warheads by an enemy deploying radically advanced weapons, vehicles and ground troops. To Duke's surprise, one of the assailants is his ex-girlfriend Ana, now going as "TheBaroness" (Sienna Miller). Duke and Ripcord are saved from the attack by an secret elite squad of soldiers called G.I. Joe, who take over the warhead mission.

* InstantAwesomeJustAddNinja: Ripcord and Duke pull off some pretty awesome stuff in their Alpha 6 Accelerator Suits. Snake-Eyes, pulls off the same and/or ''more'' awesome stunts, without them. The audience doesn't question that because he's ''a goddamn Ninja''.

* {{Badass}}: Almost everyone, but especially Zartan, Snake Eyes, and Storm Shadow. Duke scoring a single hit on Snake Eyes during a sparring session is enough to convince several of the Joes that he belongs there.

* ShapedLikeItself: "They're going to use him to weaponize the warheads!"

* ShapedLikeItself: "They're going to use him to weaponize the warheads!"warheads!" In this context, "activate" is what they're referring to, as the warheads are dormant until run through a particle accelerator.

* 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.
