''G.I. Joe: The Movie'' (1987) was the first film to come out of the ''Franchise/GIJoe'' franchise. It is in the original animated series timeline taking place after its second season. Originally planned as a theatrical release, but after ''Franchise/MyLittlePony: The Movie'' and ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' bombed at the box office, it was released DirectToVideo instead, and quickly added to the syndication package of the series (in both movie format and as a 5-part episode, the latter version featuring framing segments hosted by the live-action Sgt. Slaughter).

It also '''''tried''''' to avert some of the tropes associated with the TV series such as NeverSayDie and NobodyCanDie. However, thanks to ''WesternAnimation/TransformersTheMovie'' being released first and the negative backlash against Optimus Prime's death, the death of Duke had to be changed to a coma.

* AnimationBump: The [[ActionHoggingOpening action packed opening]], which apparently took up a good chunk of the budget. Also the "Barraks" during Serpentors rescue, and the Mauler only seen for a few seconds behind and to the left of Hawks Snowcat when his strikeforce was in the tunnel entrance to Cobra-La.

* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Cobra Commander's true face is revealed... covered in about a dozen large, staring, inhuman eyes. It almost distracts from the fundamentally serpent-like look of his face, with scaly skin and lipless mouth. ''Almost''.
** The serpent-like look of his face was caused by his rapid mutation. His face was mostly human (other than the skin color) [[spoiler:in the flashback that shows him getting those extra eyes when a spore pod blew up in his face, said flashback also implying he may have even created them in the first place]].

* {{Hypocrite}}: Cobra-La's hatred of humanity is due to their dependence on inorganic technology, which they see as anti-life and an abomination. Still, they have no problem stealing and using such a device, the B.E.T., to carry out their EvilPlan, contradicting their own beliefs.
** Which is debatable, since Golobulus stated that he "must" have the machine, implying Cobra La was unable, not unwilling, to make due without it.

* SpecialEffectFailure: You can see and hear one scene where a H.A.V.O.C. Duke was on shoot beams instead of shells at an unseen target. Also the movie has other Joe vehicle's and Chuckle's handgun make actual gun noises, sometimes. A Mauler is seen behind and to the left of Hawk's Snowcat in the tunnel, but is not seen exiting, not that it should have fit anyway.
