** The closest the series ever came to killing off a bunch of Joes was in the "Worlds Without End" two-parter, where {{alternate universe}} versions of Steeler, Clutch, and Grunt died during a failed battle against Cobra (we see their skeleton remains after the fact), so their counterparts from the regular universe decided to remain there and help out that world's Baroness, who is secretly a Joe sympathizer and the lover of her world's Steeler. It was a subtle way of killing off actual Joes without having them die on-screen.

While none of the aforementioned Joes did get killed, we get to see the skeletonized remains of their alternate universe counterparts, foreshadowing their departure from the show.

** 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.

** At least in the cartoon, Baroness is practically [[WesternAnimation/RockyAndBullwinkle Natasha Fatale]]. Morgan Lofting even managed a decent June Foray impression.

* DeusExMachina: In GIJoeResolute, [[spoiler:Duke manages to figure out everything there is to figure out about Cobra's direct-energy weapon and reprogram it to fire on the Cobra base...in under twenty seconds, with plenty of spare time to get out of the Cobra base himself.]]

* JustBetweenYouAndMe: In ''GIJoeResolute'', when Storm Shadow and Snake Eyes meet for their final duel, Storm Shadow reveals that his [[NobleDemon supposed honor]] was really all just a facade to screw with Snake Eyes, out of jealousy.
* KillEmAll: Arguably subverted in GIJoeResolute, which promised a high body count and by all means delivered on that promise...with Cobra. While a pretty good amount of known named Cobra characters were killed (some more gruesome than others) the G.I Joe team was for the most part pretty much intact. The only named G.I Joe character whom was killed is Bazooka, whose died offscreen and his corpse is perfectly clean and intact (while some of the Cobra fatalities can't quite say the same thing).

** While there have always been a lot more male characters than female in the G.I Joe series the original series did make an effort in trying to avert this as Lady Jaye and Scarlett (and to a lesser extent Cover Girl) for the G.I Joe team did appear often and had good screentime. (While not as successful as G.I Joe, Cobra did make some effort in averting this with Zarana and Baroness.) However the other G.I Joe cartoons that came afterward pretty much played this straight though as unless your names are Scarlett or Baroness you will either be DemotedToExtra or be on the receiving end of ChuckCunninghamSyndrome. (With GIJoeResolute being the only arguable--and I repeat, arguable--exception.)\\

** Made a shocking return in GIJoeResolute where Duke and Scarlett stand smack in the middle of a crossfire against twenty Cobras and don't get hit once. This was likely in reference to the original series.

** 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. 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.

** 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.
