Film: Action Man
A trilogy of CGI movies based on the Action Man toy franchise.


Tropes applying to these films:

  • Archer Archetype: Redwolf
  • Broad Strokes: Despite the then-recent CGI TV series, the movies seem to follow the 90s animated series, albeit in broad strokes.
  • Captain Ersatz: No Face's appearance and Modus Operandi make him an evil version of Darkman.
  • Clear My Name: Action Man must do this in the Robot Atak movie, after No Face impersonated him to kidnap Professor Moran.
  • Fun Personified: Flynt.
  • Mad Scientist: Profesor Gangrene.
  • Master of Disguise: No Face.
  • Mecha-Mooks: the X-Robots
  • Power Trio:Action Force.
    • Redwolf is the Superego (calm and collected, though with some sense of humor)
    • Action Man is the Ego (as the quintessential action hero, sometimes he makes good planning, but other times he takes impulsive actions to keep the world safe)
    • Flynt is the Id (impulsive and fun-loving)
  • Recycled Script: the X Missions movie reuses both the plot and some character models from the G.I. Joe movie Valor Versus Venom. Both are still good in their own way.
  • Sixth Ranger: Rebel in the X Missions movie.
