** Another thing that's odd is Zartan going through with the assassination after forging that first sword. Cobra Commander threatens to reveal the plot to the clan... except during his entrance he was told they could ''already'' sense he had dark intentions. Confessing would probably lead to them nodding their heads and Zartan being eccepted as a full-fledged Arashikage.

* This is mostly just some toyline weirdness, but GI Joe has one firefighter (Barbecue) and ''two'' flamethrowers (Charbroil and Blowtorch). Not only does GI Joe have more arsonists than people to put out fires, but theoretically, they could all be assigned to be on the same team!

* In ''Snake Eyes: Declassified'', Onihashi kills himself after making it clear he knows Zartan did it. Why couldn't Onihashi hold off on the seppuku long enough to, I don't know, '''''tell someone who the assassin was?''''' The clan and remaining elders wouldn't hold Thomas responsible, Snake Eyes wouldn't have that grudge and/or guilt going on, and Thomas wouldn't have had to join Cobra to discover his uncle's killer, thus avoiding his FaceHeelTurn and repeated brainwashings. Literally all the Arashikage-related problems could have been solved, save for the Hard Master dying in the first place, if Onihashi hadn't taken his knowledge about Zartan's role to the grave. Is it HonorBeforeReason? LawfulStupid?

* There's one episode in which Cobra steals a Joe laser guidance device thing, and as it turns out, rather than using the damn thing to, like say, blow up Washington D.C. or something like that, Cobra Commander uses the device to carve an image of himself on the flipping moon? Yeah, CC was a bit of an incompetent nut in the cartoon, but come on! You've got something that'll make your deadly laser even more deadlier by enhancing its aiming capabilities, and rather than holding the world ransom and blowing up a monument or something of importance, you use it to simply deface the moon? No wonder the Joes beat their asses so easily.

** The comics sometimes shows Cobra selling armament and weapons to other nations, usually of the third-word banana republic dictatorship variety. One story arc in the MarvelComics run included selling Cobra Terror-Dome bases, which were secretly equipped with paranoia-inducing subsonic waves to stir up civil unrest (and thus encourage more sales).

** Pshaw. [[CreatorProvincialism Everyone]] knows that there's only one ''[[{{Eagleland}} awesome]]'' nation using those colors today. Though in all seriousness, it was probably done to keep the white part of Red, White, and Blue in the middle, preventing too much blending in/bleeding out when the logo was place on a white background.

* Anyone ever wondered why the GIJoe logo has the flag of the ''[[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/2/20/Flag_of_the_Netherlands.svg/150px-Flag_of_the_Netherlands.svg.png Netherlands]]'' on it? A Real American Hero!... From the Netherlands.
