- The news report in First Blood strongly asserting that it was only the police force's training, courage, ect. that allowed them to survive Rambo's ambush of them in the forest - in reality it was intentionally non-lethal on Rambo's part.
- The "weekend warrior" mooks being completely terrified by a single burst from Rambo to the point that none of them will even raise their heads, let alone advance on Rambo (who is out of ammo, not that they know that). Their lieutenant then has them use a rocket launcher on Rambo.
- When Rambo hijacks a truck that has an M60 on it, he advises the driver to keep his eyes on the road, before throwing him out.
Rambo: Don't look at me, look at the road! That's how accidents happen.
- "Try the decaf, mate."
