* SoundOff: A hilarious version, where the platoon uses the song "Doo Wah Diddy" as a jody call.

* SoundOff: A hilarious version, where the platoon uses the song "Doo Wah Diddy" as a jody call. ironically, it works rather well; Not only the right rhythm to it, it even has a call-and-response section... (Reportedly, some armed forces units are ''[[{{Defictionalization}} actually using this song as a jody now]]'', because of the use in this film and how surprisingly well it worked.)

* AxCrazy: Francis 'Psycho' Soyer, who threatens to kill his squadmates if they touch him or his stuff, or call him anything other than Psycho. When the drill practice session the night before graduation devolves into a fight, he holds his obviously-fake practice rifle like he intends to shoot somebody.


Added DiffLines:

* RunningGag: Hulka making Winger do push-ups.
* SociopathicSoldier: Francis ''really'' wants to be one.

* CaliforniaDoubling: Pretty much everything set in Europe was shot somewhere around Louisville, KY (like most of the rest of the movie) or in California. The Russian base in particular was an old bourbon distillery.
