** In particular, Snake Eyes, one of the most iconic Joes, suffered this in the original cartoon. After appearing prominently in each of the three five-part pilots, he was then shifted into the background for the remainder of the series. One apparent reason was because of him being TheVoiceless, so the producers thought that his lack of dialogue [[ViewersAreMorons would make it harder for kids to root for him]].

* ComicBook/GIJoeIDW. As mentioned above, IDW acquired the comic rights to the franchise in 2008 and began publishing their own comics in 2009. This time, instead of continuing the Marvel/Devil's Due storyline, IDW opted to start over from the beginning and create a brand new canon. They are currently publishing three ongoing titles in the new continuity (''G.I. Joe'', ''Snake Eyes'', and ''Cobra'') and a second, Larry Hama-penned revival of the original Marvel series set in the same continuity and picked up exactly where Vol. 1 had left off.

* [[WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero An animated series]] from Sunbow Productions and Marvel Productions. Though the more remembered of the two continuities today, the cartoon is also infamous for its less realistic depiction of violence: [[FamilyFriendlyFirearms both sides used lasers instead of bullets]], [[NobodyCanDie there were no deaths]], and whenever an aircraft was destroyed its pilot had to be shown parachuting out of it. Sunbow produced two seasons and a movie intended for theatrical release, but the failure of ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' caused it to instead be released direct-to-video. Creator/DICEntertainment took over following the movie and produced two more seasons before ending the show in 1991.

* {{Expy}}: Red Star and Big Bear from the toyline were based on Colonel Brekhov and Horror Show from the comics respectively, who were already killed off by the time Hasbro felt comfortable enough to make action figures of the Joes' Russian counterparts, the Oktober Guard. Red Star later appeared in the comics and his resemblance to Col. Brekhov was referenced as well. The actual Oktober Guard members later got actual figures of their own.

** Also prevalent in the comic during its end days, when everyone at Marvel seemed to try and emulate RobLiefeld's style.

* [[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 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.

** ''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, DwayneJohnson, 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. * ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeResolute'', a 2009 animated miniseries written by Creator/WarrenEllis. Aimed at the now-adult original fandom, ''Resolute'' is easily the [[DarkerAndEdgier darkest animated entry in the franchise]]: both sides fire actual bullets, blood and death are shown, and the entire city of Moscow is destroyed within the first five minutes.

Useful Notes are not tropes; Corrected link.
* FutureHelicopter: The G.I. Joe Skyhawk is basically a one-person helicopter cockpit with rotating turbines and landing skids strapped to it. The Cobra Flight Pod serves a comparable role, supplanting the earlier, more traditional (if compact) F.A.N.G. helicopter. Later aircraft include the Joes' Skystorm (an X-wing chopper/jet fighter) and Iron Grenadiers A.G.P. (a flight pod similar in principle to the earlier Skyhawk, using rotating turbines for VTOL and flight), while some vehicles classified as "hovercraft" (such as the H.A.V.O.C.'s recon sled or Battleforce 2000's Vindicator) use open ducted-fan turbines to generate lift.
