* TropeCodifier: For [[ComicBook/GIJoeIDW pretty]] [[Film/GIJoeTheRiseOfCobra much]] [[Film/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.

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

* SpiritualSuccessor: To the Sunbow and [=DiC=] animated series. Many references were made to events and themes in those series, but Sigma 6 is largely skipped over.

* KillSat: Pretty much how Cobra Commander's latest doomsday weapon works. Through the control center in his base, he has remote control of the HAARP array in Antarctica, which has the ability to fire nuclear radiation in the atmosphere. Using a ''massive'' satellite array, he can cause the dispersed radiation to concentrate on one area and come down like a lightning bolt from Zeus, leaving a huge crater in the weapon's wake. Moscow found this out the hard (and totally unexpected) way, as did the USS Flagg.

* 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.]]

* 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.
