Other notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • Near the end of the episode, a black male wearing Bazooka's uniform fires on the retreating Cobra forces.
  • Dusty is shown with jet black hair at the beginning and end of the episode; all other times in the series he is portrayed with dirty-blond hair.

Continuity errors

  • Cover Girl is identified by Zartan as being a "make-up expert." Although she is a former model and shares her codename with a brand of make-up, Cover Girl is actually an armor specialist and mechanic. Lady Jaye is the Joe team disguise and make-up specialist, as featured in episodes such as "Money to Burn."
  • Wouldn't it have been easier just to bring Torch to the studio to stage the "interrogation" instead of wasting time disguising Recondo as the Dreadnok?
    • Torch might have seen through the charade. They needed to make certain that Cobra was convinced.

Miscellaneous trivia

  • Zartan refers to his Ferret ATV as a "Python Cycle" before the race in the desert - the working name of the toy while it was in development and in the original series bible.
  • Torch calls the police instead of doing the physical work. Dreadnoks can be intelligent.
  • The bar fight should have led to severe physical injuries.
  • The biker who assaults Torch seems to be a larger version of Torch.
  • Destro is amazed that the Joes would use Cobra's methods of torture.

Real-world references

  • Shipwreck shouts "Meep Meep!" during the scuffle with the coyotes in the desert, like Warner Bros. Roadrunner character.
  • The "you expect me to talk, no I expect you to fry" line was taken from the film Goldfinger.
