** ... But unfortunately, most of the Rambo tie-in games aren't very good, most infamously the {{NES}} game adaptation. It borrows a lot from ''Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link''. It wouldn't be a bad idea if it was properly executed. It was not. It did have some good things going for it like staying as faithful to the source material as possible (despite some deviations added to the plot), and having a pretty catchy soundtrack.

** The first three movies' ending themes count: The [[TearJerker tearjerking]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rMUsVq4o_E It's A Long Road]] from ''First Blood'', performed by Dan Hill, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JBBVS34WFY Peace In Our Life]] from ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'', performed by Sly's brother, Frank Stallone, and Bill Medley's cover of Music/TheHollies' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PqMdIZiuERc He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother]] from ''Rambo III''.

* MisaimedFandom: Rare case where the [[AscendedFanon studio ended up fostering it]]. Rambo of the first film was a TragicHero suffering severe PTSD. He was an AntiHero in the [[ClassicalAntiHero classical sense.]] Fans saw him as the [[RatedMForManly ultimate badass]] and the studio restructured the franchise into being about him being a OneManArmy ActionHero.

* SequelDisplacement: The sequels are definitely more well known than the first film. Take, for instance, the fact that it was titled ''First Blood'' and by the third film, it was called ''Rambo III'', or the fact that Rambo is known for high body counts, even though the grand total of dead bodies in the first film is a single AssholeVictim which Rambo didn't even kill on purpose.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Interestingly, the Rambo movies are ''very'' popular in Japan.

In fact the film is so popular in the last area it actually became a fountain of memes in the region extending to real life politics (see Rambo IV entry for more details).

** JerryGoldsmith, people. This is especially true for ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'' (Goldsmith quipped that this score paid for his house), even unto the AnimatedAdaptation being liberally tracked with the film's score.

* CriticalDissonance: All of the sequels were disliked by critics in Website/RottenTomatoes, but beloved by the audience. Except ''Rambo 3'', that is.

** Then there is the light gun game, proudly provided by SEGA. This one has movie footage (though following just ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'', and ''Rambo III''), assault rifles for light guns (or Mac 10 modeled SMGS, depending on the cabinet), MoreDakka than even TimeCrisis, and when you use the LimitBreak, you '''scream''' along with Rambo and gain the brief ability to take no damage, AND use BottomlessMagazines. Definitely RatedMForManly. The only legitimate complaint about this game is, unlike ''VideoGame/GHOSTSquad'' and ''VideoGame/HouseOfTheDead 4'', there is no console version of this game.

** A ''Rambo III'' adaptation was made for the SegaGenesis that was a pretty good run and gun.

** The game based on ''Rambo: First Blood Part II'' for the Sega Master System is a pretty good over head shooter, if pretty hard to play. It's similar to Ikari Warriors, without the rotary controls, rescuing POWs, and the grenades being replaced by the bow with explosive arrows. You could even cheat the game over system by joining in as the second player just as the first player loses all their lives and vice versa.
