* TheCalvary: Air cavalry, to be exact. This is the role that Capt. Blade's squad plays. He even wears an old cavalry hat.

* ClingyJealousGirl: Bombshell really doesn't like it when Capt. Blade flirts with Vikki.

Added DiffLines:

* DevelopersForesight: In the mission where Capt. Blade has to pick up a squad led by either Sarge or Vikki to blow up a radar station, picking Vikki while Bombshell is your co-pilot causes her to get really jealous, to the point she will actually ask you to pick Sarge.


Added DiffLines:

* IwoJimaPose: Quite a few of the games have green soldiers reenacting the famous photograph.

* MamaBear: A boss fight in Sarge's Heroes 2 was against a giant spider called the Queen who attacked Vikki for killing all the other spiders she ran into.



* MistreatmentInducedBetrayal: Bridgette helps out the green forces when Plastro invades the blue nation.



* OurZombiesAreDifferent: The zombies that start showing up in Army Men 2 and other games where Dr. Madd makes an appearance aren't flesh seeking ghouls (or plastic, as the case would be), but are more like Frankenstein's Monster in mannerism and appearance.
* PapaWolf: Col. Grimm, in Sarge's Heroes, was ready to capitulate after Plastro had Vikki captured and threatened to kill her. Fortunately Sarge was able to rescue her before it came to that.



* RunningGag: In the Sarge's Heroes timeline, Plastro keeps demanding one of his subordinates to bring him a sandwich.



* TheRedBaron: The Tan Baron, Baron von Beige from Air Attack 2.



* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: One of the cheats in the PC games let the player drop a massive air strike, which could be done at any time, on any enemy. Even on just one lone solider.



* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Sarge in the Sarge's Heroes games only ever shows nervousness around spiders.

* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Sarge in the Sarge's Heroes games only ever shows nervousness around spiders. Vikki gets grossed out by them too.

Added DiffLines:

* TheChewToy: A literal example with Plastro at the end of Sarge's Heroes.


Added DiffLines:

* EvilLaugh: Plastro is a fan of this, even when so badly injured from being used as a literal chew toy twice that he can't stop coughing.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Foreshadowing}}: The first Sarge's Heroes has a throw away line about plastic soldiers who stay in the real world for too long becoming frozen. Sarge's Heroes 2 makes this a major plot point.


Added DiffLines:

* GroinAttack: Vikki, while still tied to a chair, gives one of her captors a swift kick to the soft spot.


Added DiffLines:

* MeaningfulName: You can tell what Bravo company's personalities and choice of weapons just by their names.


Added DiffLines:

** Sarge's Heroes ends with Plastro, though badly injured, finding one last portal.


Added DiffLines:

* TakingYouWithMe: Plastro briefly tries this at the end of Sarge's Heroes, being too fat and injured to run away from the lit M-80 that Sarge was using to blow up the last portal, but not wanting Sarge to make it back to the plastic world either.

* BringMyPrownPants: Implied with Hoover in one cutscene:
--> '''Col. Grimm:''' Do you think he can make it back to the landing pad on his own?
--> '''Sarge:''' That's a negative sir; moisture is imminent.
--> '''Hoover:''' Aw, geeze!


Added DiffLines:

* EscortMission: These have been around since the first game, they range from barely an escort (being able to just order your men to hold while you killed everything the way/the VIP being almost as bad ass as Sarge) to almost controller breaking frustrating.

Added DiffLines:

* HypocriticalHumor: After being shown a film of green soldiers being melted by Plastro's magnifying glasses, Sarge goes on about how horrible and barbaric they are, before asking Col. Grimm if they can build some.


Added DiffLines:

* LastSecondWordSwap:
--> '''Sarge:''' But where is Plastro getting these magnificent, uh I mean, horrific weapons?


Added DiffLines:

* TalkingToYourself: Jim Cummings voices just about everybody in the Sarge's Heroes timeline.

* BadBoss: Plastro.


Added DiffLines:

* FaceHeelRevolvingDoor: Bridgette Blue, and all of the blue nation really. They'll work for whoever pays best, or at least who isn't trying to kill them.


Added DiffLines:

* PromotedToPlayable: Vikki in Sarge's Heroes 2.


Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadAss: Vikki, in Sarge's Heroes 2. While she had her moments in the first Sarge's Heroes, she takes a much more proactive part in the fight in 2, even rescuing Sarge at one point.

* ActuallyPrettyFunny: Near the end of Sarge's Heroes, when Plastro and a few tan soldiers have Sarge at their mercy, he is able to knock the tans (save for Plastro) off the present they are standing on by kicking a block at them. Plastro actually congratulates Sarge on his cleverness.



* AnAssKickingChristmas: The last two levels in Sarge's Heroes takes place in a living room with a gigantic Christmas tree in the background.
* AndNowForSomeoneCompletelyDifferent: Sarge's Heroes 2 lets the player take control of Vikki in 3 missions.



* ArtificialStupidity: Sarge's Heroes' ally AI is this in spades. The generic Green Soldiers only appear in the first level and they rarely ever manage to kill a single tan soldier even if they're in a group.

* BadAssInDistress: Vikki in both of Sarge's Heroes games. She spends most of her time as a captive secretly relaying tan troop movements.



* DeadpanSnarker: Sarge in the Sarge's Heroes games, when he wasn't being a dutiful solider. Captain Blade meanwhile was in snark mode 24/7.



* DirtyCoward: Hoover, the team's minesweeper, looks like he wished he called himself a conscientious objector, and will retreat in the RTS if he takes even a little damage.

** Vikki pulls this briefly in Sarge's Heroes after getting captured as part of a HoneyPot.
* FatBastard: General Plastro in the Sarge's Heroes games. Compared to the original Army Men titles, where he was built like a truck.

* CreepyCockroach: Starting with Army Men 2, they start appearing in the real world. Due to the limited graphics of the PlayStation games, they can be downright horrifying.
