* OffscreenVillainDarkMatter: Just how does Cobra afford to field and equip enough soldiers to put up a fight against the US military? Especially when so many of their plans are thwarted? Different continuities have different explanations:
** In the Marvel comics, they actually had ties to legitimate businesses, including dealing arms they themselves invent.
** The Sunbow cartoon is pretty vague about it. One episode has them trying to raise funds with a ''pirate broadcast telethon'' (the prize for meeting the donation goal was the live execution of some Joes). The same episode suggests that they run a special academy to train criminals. At various points it's hinted that their financial interests are hidden behind a dummy company called Extensive Enterprises.
** In the IDW comics they created a cult called the Coil and used it to fleece wealthy converts.
** The ''Renegades'' version of Cobra never had this problem, because they were publicly known only as a completely legitimate corporation.

This dates back from the 60's, when Palitoy licensed the original G.I. Joe figure as ''WesternAnimation/ActionMan''. Two decades later, ''Action Force'' was launched as an independent extension of the Action Man line. This changed with Hasbro's acquisition of the Palitoy assets, after which the Joes were introduced with European birthplaces.

* CoolCar: The Dreadnoks' Thunder Machine: A vehicle about the size of a humvee cobbled together from disparate parts, including tank armor plates, two large-caliber [[GatlingGood gatling guns]] on the hood, and ''a jet engine''. It wouldn't look out of place in ''[[{{Franchise/MadMax}} Mad Max]]''.

** The cartoon had Sapphire, a lounge singer in a Cobra-controlled city forced against her will because Cobra had her father in captivity. When Snake Eyes and Shipwreck arrive to infiltrate the city, she assists them, claiming they are part of her band- until the end when she tries to kill Cobra Commander by slamming his head into an electrified console. If not for his helmet shielding him, he'd be dead.
