* NotSoWellIntentionedExtremist: [[BigBad Dr. X]] claims he's trying to help the humanity evolve even if many won't survive the transformation into [[MasterRace "Neo-Humanity"]]. In actuality, he's a psychopath with delusions of grandeur and world conquest. When his plans start to crumble, he decides to decimate the Earth with an asteroid. He basically says "I am humanity" during his final WeCanRuleTogether speech to Action Man.

There [[Film/ActionMan also exists a trilogy of CGI Movies]]. As of 2012, [[http://www.slashfilm.com/hasbro-still-developing-movies-based-on-monopoly-hungry-hungry-hippos-and-action-man/ Hasbro is developing an Action Man film]] but nothing else is known so far. The French animated series ''WesternAnimation/AlphaTeensOnMachines'' is derived from an Action Man replacement line, retaining more or less what could be reasonably called a different interpretation of the protagonist himself, but with a completely different set of characters.

* VillainExclusivityClause: The 2000 CGI version put Dr. X in this position. Pretty much every episode either has Dr. X as the villain, or someone who works for him. His plot is always the same: kill a bunch of people, [[EvilutionaryBiologist mutate the survivors into neo-humanity]]. He would also narrate his darwinian goals Every. Single. Episode.

In 1966, Creator/{{Hasbro}} licensed the British company Palitoy to manufacture and sell the popular GIJoe toy in the U.K. Because the term "GI Joe" is very American, they decided to rename him "Action Man." It was more or less the same toy as his American counterpart, but his costumes and accessories were quickly redesigned to depict British military uniforms and equipment.
