* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The villains are violent toys that resemble American soldiers, and are hunting down far more peaceful ones. Suffice to say, some critics were suspicious of the director's motives.

* UncannyValley: Definitely the Gwendy dolls after they've been "drafted" into the Commando Elite's service.

* UncannyValley: Definitely UncannyValley: The Commando Elite all have very exaggeratedly masculine features, and end up looking more monstrous than the non-human Gorgonites. Chip is the least {{Gonk}} of the bunch.

** When the Commandos are falling apart. You can see that many of them are just solid pieces of geometry, as their internal components are not visible.

Added DiffLines:

* SpecialEffectsFailure: While the blend between animatronic and CG is usually decent (for its time, at least). There's a few moments where it's obvious, like when Chip climbs the rock near the end of the film.
** When the Commandos are falling apart. You can see that many of them are just solid pieces of geometry, as their internal components are not visible.
** Some of the animation itself is lacking at parts, such as the choppy movements of Insaniac during the finale.

* RootingForTheEmpire: Note to Hollywood: If you don't want people sympathizing with your villains, you should probably stop making them 10x cooler than the heroes.
** Or give them several times as much screen time, almost to the point of making them {{Villain Protagonist}}s.
** [[OverlyLongGag Also, don't then]] [[ToylessToylineCharacter only release three of them in toy form]] [[NoExportForYou - two in the UK - as opposed to an entire set of Gorgonites]] and Flatchoo, who wasn't even a Gorgonite.
** Given that the Commando Elite are in universe the good guys it makes sense they would be cool.
*** Actually, the creator of the Gorgonite line did a little tinkering so that the ''Commandos'' were the bad guys. Even then, though, this trope may still apply.

cool. It was the creator of the Gorgonite line who did a little tinkering so that his Gorgonites would be the ''Commandos'' were heroes instead, and the Commandos the bad guys. Even then, though, this trope may still apply.
