Animation and/or technical glitches
- Thunder's helmet is miscolored for a moment toward the end of the episode.
- Stalker is animated as a Caucasian for a few frames on the train.
- The real Fort Knox is not located in the desert. Or anywhere near a desert.
- Duke sees Major Bludd planting a bomb on a safe, then promptly walks straight into the bomb's blast path.
- Despite having a bomb go off right next to him and hurl him against a wall, Duke gets up and walks away unscathed.
- The Fort Knox vault has dozens of armed guards, yet not a single one notices when Zartan pulls General Stack through a hole in the floor.
- Zartan lures Duke, Scarlett and Snake-Eyes into a trap, at which point they are surrounded by Cobra troopers on all sides, above and below. Despite having them surrounded at point-blank range and opening fire from all directions, not one shot so much as nicks the trio.
- As Gung-Ho climbs atop one of Mr. Murphy's horses, the saddle becomes undone and he falls off the horse, falling right on top of his head. A fall like that would likely result in Gung-Ho being paralyzed from the neck down, yet he walks away unharmed.
- A train derailment of the magnitude displayed here would result in many dead Joes and Cobras.
- General Stack refers to Duke as "Sergeant Hauser" throughout the episode. Which leads to an interesting question: Are the G.I. Joe code names not used by those unaffiliated with the team? On the other hand...
- Mr. Murphy calls Thunder by his code name. Why would a civilian address a Joe by his code name? Then again, Thunder is a drummer, and it's conceivable that his nickname growing up was "Thunder".
- The Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington D.C. is the site of Cobra's initial assault this episode.
- Gung-Ho makes a passing mention of Grant's Tomb, which is located in New York City.
- The US Bullion Depository near Fort Knox, Kentucky is Cobra's main objective.
