Added DiffLines:

* CoversAlwaysLie: The DVD covers often ignore Storm Shadow's Renegade look and draw him in a design reminiscent of his classic appearance; his mask is a single part without exposing his bangs, the shirt is different, and sometimes the sleeves are absent (ala this page's picture).

* HeroicSacrifice:
** [[spoiler:Ripcord]] performs one, killing himself and blowing up the COBRA factory, [[spoiler:though ultimately he survived]].
** The defective Bio-Viper from "Anomaly" performs one; restraining a berserk [[spoiler:Ripcord, freeing him from Mindbender's control chip in the process]] and absorbing four other Bio-Vipers that were about to explode and take part of the city with them.

* BaitTheDog: In "Rage" The team saves a street priest from a homeless veteran suffering a PTSD episode. We later see the man handing out hot coffee to other freezing homeless people but it's all a ploy to drug them and kidnap them for experiments as the priest is actually a MARS scientist. He'd been attacked earlier because he'd been experimenting on that man.

** In "The Anaconda Strain," Dr. Schurr and Dr. Monev are researching a pathogen that mutates people. Though Schurr's suit ruptures, Monev manages to quarantine him, and even as Schurr mutates, Monev still tries to keep him company and helps the Joes go for an antidote. Though Dr. Monev later traps then and leaves them to die, revealing he deliberately sabotaged Schurr's suit and wanted to study the virus's effects on humans. He had made a cure and kept it from Schurr, ultimately planning to assist COBRA in a global outbreak and selling the cure to only those who could afford it. A fitting debut for Dr. Venom.

* YouWontFeelAThing: Dr. Mindbender basically says this when he has Storm Shadow hooked up to a machine, hooked up to Tomax and Xamot, that will let him mentally control the Shadow Vipers. He's lying of course and Storm Shadow, Tomax, Xamot, and the six Vipers are all painfully electrocuted. Storm Shadow tries to garrote him after that stunt.

* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:[[TheMole Major Hidalgo]], who, after failing to demand twice his fee from the Baroness for turning traitor against the Joes, is promptly "fired" in the first episode. In the season finale the Joes launch a missile into a tank with Destro inside, which then explodes. Later on, the Baroness and Dr. Mindbender are sucked into an unstable wormhole]]. Given that the series is now on hiatus, and unlikely to come back, they are pretty much dead.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodScarsEvilScars: Good and evil characters display scars either to show how rugged they are or to make them look more threatening. "Fire Fighters" made good use of the trope with Barbecue and Firefly, both carrying notable burn scars. For Barbecue it symbolizes his injury in the line of duty and shows off why a job like his is important, whilst Firefly is covered in, likely self-inflicted, burns to demonstrate his obsession with fire and who dangerous he is.

* ChocolateOfRomance: In "Castle Destro," Destro invites Baroness over for a date offering her european chocolate and chocolate fondue strawberries. He himself cannot eat any because of the mask, and we learn that he's on a liquid diet on account of only feeding himself via straws.

* DeathByOriginStory: This continuity's version of Frostbite is definitively dead; he and Snow Job went skiing back when they were in the army, an avalanche was triggered and Frostbite was killed. His death is the reason Snow Job left the service and fell into depression.
