Trivia: G.I. Joe: Resolute

  • Executive Veto: Warren Ellis originally planned for Cobra Commander to obliterate Beijing, but the Hasbro executives shot that down. They were OK with destroying Moscow though.
    • Fridge Logic suggests this was to avoid offending China — where Hasbro's toys are made.
  • Fake Nationality: Given four voice actors were involved, it was inevitable, but it also lapses into Fake Race as well.
    • Charlie Adler (Jewish-American) voiced Hard Master (Japanese) and Stalker (African-American).
    • Steve Blum (also Jewish-American) voiced Ripcord, Doc, Roadblock, and Zartan (the former three African-American, the latter one Australiannote ).
    • Grey DeLisle (Dutch/French/Irish/Mexican/Norwegian-American) as the Baroness (Russian).
    • Eric Bauza (Japanese-Canadian) voice Destro (Caucasian-Scottish), Storm Shadow (a native of Japan) and Tunnel Rat (Chinese-American).
  • Hey, It's That Voice! and Talking to Himself: The voiced cast has just four actors—Charlie Adler, Eric Bauza, Steve Blum, and Grey DeLisle all playing different characters, but they can pull it off, since they are some of the best/most experienced/most promising in the voice-acting business. But to break it down...
    • Adler voiced Cobra Commander (for the first time), Flint, Gung-Ho, Stalker, and Hard Master.
    • Blum voiced Duke, Roadblock, Wild Bill, Ripcord, Zartan, and Doc.
    • DeLisle voiced Scarlett, Baroness, Dial-Tone, and Cover Girl.
    • Bauza voiced Storm Shadow, Destro, and Tunnel Rat.
  • Playing Against Type: Charlie Adler (who usually plays high-voiced wimps, effete losers, little girls, and smug, smarmy jerks in more comedic fare) as Cobra Commander (a character whose actions aren't played for laughs and is an actual threatnote ).
    • This wasn't the first time he's voiced a main character in a serious action series either- he previously was T-Bone/Chance Furlong in SWAT Kats.
