* ExplainExplainOhCrap: [[spoiler: Related to the above, Cobra Commander boasts inside his secret pod about how he'll get away with it all because his pod can't be destroyed by ballistics or explosives. [[IdiotBall He even continues taunting Duke as he destroys the pod's lock and messes around with the energy weapon's controls]]...until he sees that Duke reprogrammed the weapon to fire at ''Springfield, USA''. [[VillainousBreakdown Cobra Commander then tries brute force to get out of the pod, which ultimately fails...]] except that NeverFoundTheBody is in play in Duke's aftermath.]]

Added DiffLines:
* NeverFoundTheBody: [[spoiler: In Duke's final report, he notes that on their return to the destroyed Springfield base, the pod Cobra Commander hid in was...''empty''.

* BareHandedBladeBlock: Snake-Eyes uses a highly unconventional version of this trope in his fight with Storm Shadow: stopping the blade ''by allowing it to pass through the palm of his hand, then breaking the sword with a single strike.'' Afterwards, he nonchalantly pulls out the section of hilt still stuck in his hand.

* CoolBoat: The aircraft carrier USS Flagg serves as the Joes' base of operations. It's where they make their battle plans, analyse technical data, and [[CaptainObvious launch the aircraft that take them to their missions]]. [[spoiler: It gets destroyed by Cobra near the end.]]

* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Cobra Commander has clearly been watching all his old episodes and taking notes (he even {{lampshades}} this on several occasions). Fortunately, he still manages to be incredibly entertaining since, despite being significantly more murderous, he's still completely bonkers.

* TwoLinesNoWaiting: Most of the story follows four missions the Joes carry out concurrently. Snake Eyes hunts for Storm Shadow on Cobra Island, Duke and Scarlett infiltrate a secret base in Siberia (where they meet Zartan), Tunnel Rat and some RedShirts attack Cobra's strattelites, and Roadblock leads a team of his fellow TheBigGuy types in rescuing captured HAARP array scientists from Destro and the Baroness. * TropeCodifier: For [[ComicBook/GIJoeIDW pretty]] [[GIJoeTheRiseofCobra much]] [[GIJoeRetaliation all]] [[GIJoeRenegades G.I. Joe]] fiction from 2009 onward. Ripcord and Dial-Tone are black and female respectively, Cobra Commander is a competent, utterly ruthless leader (Resolute is not the first continuity with a scary Commander, but it is what cemented that as his definite modern characterization), entire cities can be destroyed, the Joes are quite lethal even to named Cobra characters, and there's a definite focus on the characters who have proven to be the more popular ones in the franchise. * VillainExitStageLeft: Subverted; the Commander ''does'' have a contingency plan in the form of a safe room complete with its own life support and power supply, and he is HoistByHisOwnPetard via [[NoKillLikeOverkill GIANT CITY-DESTROYING LASER]], but the Joes do follow up on him. True, they didn't find anything, but A+ for effort.

* OutOfFocus/TheCameo: A number of Joes and two Cobra members only appear very briefly. The story is much more interested in portraying Duke, Scarlet, Tunnel Rat, Roadblock, Snake Eyes, Cobra Commander, Storm Shadow, Destro, and the Baroness than it is in Firefly, Major Bludd, Bazooka, Flint, Wild Bill, Cover Girl, Lady Jaye, Shipwreck, Stalker, and Gung-Ho.
