** Pythona from The Movie never got made into a figure, even though Golobulus and Nemesis Enforcer were released as part of a Cobra-La Team pack along with a Cobra-La [[EliteMook Royal Guard]].

** Pythona from The Movie never got made into a figure, even though Golobulus and Nemesis Enforcer were released as part of a Cobra-La Team pack along with a Cobra-La [[EliteMook Royal Guard]]. The collector club later made toys of them, albeit 20+ years after the film came out.

** That's nothing- Quick Kick is often seen only wearing karate pants, and his debut scene of the cartoon was set in Antarctica. No tonly was he shirtless, but he was walking ''barefoot'' on solid ice!

* CrossOver: Multiple times with Franchise/{{Transformers}} in the comics; once, sort of, in the TV show.

* CrossOver: Multiple times with Franchise/{{Transformers}} in the comics; once, sort of, in the TV show. Twice with the Street Fighter games- the 1990s Hasbro Street Fighter toys were branded as part of G.I. Joe, and now a published crossover comic series.

** The Dreadnoks are somewhat base don the Hell's Angels.
*** Buzzer's file card indicates he's based loosely on Hunter S. Thompson, specifically Thompson's time spent with the Hell's Angels- except he joined them.



** Cobra Commander, usually. He was actually shown unmasked in the comics a few times and was definitely human, unlike his appearance ''GI Joe: The Movie''-- and then you wish it hadn't been.

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy:
** In ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', Cobra Commander has clearly been watching all his old episodes and taking notes (he even lampshades this on several occasions). Fortunately, he still manages to be incredibly entertaining since, despite being significantly more murderous, he's still completely bonkers.
** His escape plans were a lot more thought-out in the cartoon, though. Probably because he had [[DirtyCoward a lot of practice]].

** ''Film/GIJoeRetaliation'', the 2013 sequel to ''Rise of Cobra''[[note]]It was originally set for a June 2012 release, but was bumped up a year later due to the studio wanting to add 3D, as well as some reshoots of certain scenes.[[/note]]. Featuring a new director, Wrestling/DwayneJohnson, Creator/BruceWillis, and about half the original cast returning, the movie quickly turned heads by just how different it felt from the first film while still being clearly set in the same universe.

* [[ComicBook/GIJoeARealAmericanHeroMarvel A comic book]] written by Creator/LarryHama. Prior to the relaunch, Hama had an idea for a Franchise/MarvelUniverse comic called ''Fury Force'', which would have seen the son of ComicBook/NickFury put together a team to fight Hydra, Marvel's resident terrorist group; his ''G.I. Joe'' series was based primarily on this unused pitch. Compared to the cartoon, the comic was the more mature of the two, since it allowed characters to be killed off and contained a functioning canon. The book proved to be very popular, and at one point it was Marvel's bestselling comic; the famous issue 21, which [[NoDialogueEpisode told a story without using any speech bubbles or sound effects]], has been endlessly homaged and parodied.
