After ''Sgt. Savage'''s cancellation, the Sarge himself [[{{Transplant}} was made a core character]] on ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeExtreme'', and both its tie-in cartoon and comic had installments dealing with Savage's past with the IRON army. Additionally, some of the ''G.I. Joe's'' franchises' crossovers with ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' have made reference to some of the concepts from ''Sgt. Savage'', including certain characters featured in ''ComicBook/{{Revolutionaries}}'', a part of the new Franchise/HasbroComicUniverse.

* BreakOutTheMuseumPiece: Some of the Screaming Eagles' vehicles (among them the Sarge's Warhawk and the "Blitz" tank) were reactivated World War II vehicles with an additional amount of RetroUpgrade (like giving a Sherman Tank (the aforementioned Blitz) a plasma cannon as a main gun).

* CoolPlane: The P-40 Warhawk. Already awesome because of being a WorldWarII plane, the toy line gave it a RetroUpgrade with full-blown self-piloting autopilot, VTOL capabilities and on the toy proper a ''ginormous Gatling Gun underneath its nose''.

* YouDontLookLikeYou: Of the four “old” characters appearing, Lady Jaye is the most different to her traditional looks in the toys, comics or TV shows, being a blonde with a different haircut.

Added DiffLines:

* ActionFigureFileCard: As noted below, sometimes they provide more information on the characters than the animated episode.

Added DiffLines:

* FlatCharacter: Due to being a single episode, most of the Screaming Eagles get no characterization, with the exceptions of Mouse who gets a bit of focus, and D-Day and Dynamite [[AllThereInTheManual who got toys and therefore filecards]],
* FunWithAcronyms: IRON stands for International Robotic Operations Network.


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Krieger doesn't get his comeuppance at the end of the special, since it was intended to be the start of a series. At least his plan was stopped.


* MerchandiseDriven: In this case, the episode came packaged with the Sgt Savage figure, but still served as advertisement to the other figures and accessories.

* CaptainErsatz: More like ''Sergeant'' Expy, considering how much Savage's OriginStory takes from ComicBook/CaptainAmerica. Sgt. Savage's profile in ''Hasbro Heroes Sourcebook 3'' made a meta-joke about it by adding new details to Savage's backstory ripped off from ''Film/CaptainAmericaTheFirstAvenger''.

A corresponding toyline (with figures in the 4.5" scale rather than the traditional 3.75" scale) was made by Creaator/{{Hasbro}}, but very short-lived. ''Sgt. Savage'' was the last ''G.I Joe'' line to have the involvement of Kirk Bozigian, who had worked on the franchise since the inception of ''WesternAnimation/GIJoeARealAmericanHero'' in 1982.
