* SpecialEffectFailure: The infamous CG helicopter scene in ''The Professional''. It... doesn't hold up, to say the least.

* SerialNumbersFiledOff: Takao Sakai originally wrote Golgo 13 as a way to continue making James Bond-style stories while bypassing any copyright issues with Ian Fleming.

* GodModeSue: Golgo 13, aka Duke Togo, is a DracoInLeatherPants {{Badass}} ColdSniper with a 100% accuracy rating, is a multi-billionaire, has played a hand in just about every historical event of the past forty years, and beds just about every woman he comes in contact with (and is awesome in bed, no less)... but it all kind of works, doesn't it? It helps that the series focuses more on the events that require his intercession (Or the people trying to stop/catch him) than on Duke Togo himself as time goes on. His overwhelming ability is doled out in controllable doses.

* MemeticMutation -- Duke's face has gone memetic much like the [[{{Bara}} Yaranaika face]] among Japanese artists, and gets slapped on just about any character's face as a source of quick comedy due to its out-of-place 'coolness'.

* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Despite the UnfortunateImplications, ''{{Golgo 13}}'' has a rather notable one in the story "The Dark-Skinned Sniper". Duke Togo's target du jour is a corrupt politician in the DeepSouth. As part of a very intricate plan to get close to his target, Duke has taken a drug that darkens his skin color so that he can pass as black while staying with a cell of the Black Panthers organization ([[MundaneUtility and catching up on his tanning]]). A group of cops raid the Panthers' shack, march everyone outside, and force them to strip at gunpoint so they can identify Golgo by his tanlines; Togo strips and stands up... and the cops glance at his crotch before mutually yelling, ''"Huh?!?"'' The other Panthers comment "Now he's a dark-skinned man all over! Do you see ''that''!" "Kinda hard ''not'' to notice, actually." (For the record: The confused cops take them all in to the station, [[BatmanGambit which gets Duke in range of his target]].)
* CrossesTheLineTwice: See above.
