This must be a theme. Cliffjumper (who I think was voiced by The Rock!?) died in the 1st ep of Transformers: Prime also. I'm much more of a Joe fan but Cliffjumper felt much more tragic and a greater loss. Everyone seems to be taking a page out of Giant-Sized X-Men #1 here. That's A-ok!

I dvr'ed both episodes and watched them on my day off this week. I'm still trying to figure out how i feel about the show. But when Ripcord had his incident, I instantly thought "did the writers of the show see the live action movie and hated Wayans as Rip so this was their shot back at the movie by killin him off?" Could just be me but I was pretty indifferent about it.

I thought the same thing... except instead of the writers hating ROC, they were more offering an apology by killing him off. LOL.

But Ripcord's apparent demise is more important because it means Joes die in this toon... nobody is sacred... except Duke, Scarlett & SE. LOL.

i have a feeling ripcord's death in renegades will not affect the presence or fate of the roc ripcord in the upcoming live action sequel.
the renegades ripcord wasn't around long enough for me to dislike him so i wouldn't be celebrating...but thats just me. if anything its sad, he gave his life so others could live. people he barely knew, if anything i would celebrate his life not his death. the roc ripcord is another story.

I was surprised to see Ripcord die. I just knew he was going to get out of the facility and survive. He wasn't really around long enough to form much of an opinion about him, but it is interesting to think that characters can die now, unlike back in the day where everybody shot at each other with frikkin' lasers and missed.

Uhmm.. You do know Roadblock has a very deep tan as well right?

Do you suggest in any way that they should've killed off the asian dude or a whitey?
Besides I think he'll be back in a coming episode. Maybe they're making dynamic episode intro's like Avengers: EMH. Where only the avengers featured in that episode or currently active are shown at the end of the catchy emo-rock intro-song.

My thoughts exactly. As far as cartoons go... the more mature cartoons more specifically, I can't honestly recall them killing of a 'big' named character in the first episode in well... ever. So, in honor of this new MO of killing off characters in the first episode... and since I saw it in 'Prime' before the Ripcord incident in 'Renegades'... it will now and forevermore be known... in my head... as...

"Cliffjumper-ing"

And yes... the Rock voiced Cliffjumper. I was so stoked to hear that the Rock was involved... and then... they Cliffjumpered him.

So... as we have it so far for new toons...

- Cliffjumper - Cliffjumpered
- Ripcord - Cliffjumpered
- Young Justice - Speedy merely quit... so no Cliffjumpering there

hahahaha, I'm telling you. He's going to be Mindbender's supersoldier. It'd be epic, a half man, half Bio-Viper synthoid evil ripcord. THAT would be awesome. He'd still be dead, but the BV would reanimate his corpse to totally F with the Joes. Atleast, that's what I'd do.

Ripcord's departure from the story line is certainly welcomed by many!

However, they never mentioned him in the news report, Cobra never mentions they found the body of him, the Army doesn't mention his absence, the only ones that were concerned were the Renegades. This leaves the door wide open to revisit his character in the plot. And given that in 6 Hours they didn't make fast friends, I'd like him to take an adversarial role to the fugitives or possibly be a part of an experiment. If he comes back and then they can kill him again. Why kill Ripcord once when you can do it twice?

I doubt he's dead. I think they "pretended" to kill him off to bring the other Joes togeather and cause tension between Duke and Scarlett. Then what they'll do is after the tension dies down between Scarlett and Duke and the J-Team has been united as a group they'll have to save him or he'll come back in some way.

BINGO! Foolproof, poptart, and I sat at last years JoeCon last night dinner with a writer from the show.

Didn't want to fold his cover, but I was told we'd get roadblock and not heavy duty, Jinx, and there is a significant death in the first couple of episodes, and all deaths will stick, no phoenix saga story lines.

Not lasers, but "plasma", which according to the writer is just a modern name for lasers.

Everyone at the show knew how much we hated the movie, so they want something we approve of, but will hook a new generation of kids.

Personally, I'd prefer they weren't killing anybody. It's a fucking kids show for Christ's sake. (And spare me the "reality" argument, it's a cartoon!).

Now, that said ... I must say, Episode 3--and its new opening--rocked! :)

there are waaaaaay too many Joe characters available for the writers to have to re-hash Ripcord. lol. i think its silly to think they'd bring him back in some shape/form. he's dead. deal with it people! lolz.

i see them working. introducing new characters along the way gets us fans super excited. bringing one back "just cuz" does not make sense - especially since the bulk of Joe fans were not fond of how R.I.P.cord was portrayed in "that one movie."

i hope this was an exercised example to hollywood of how exactly one can go about eliminating a character the producers wanted...technically ripcord was part of the show...had his name in the intro...had some face time closeups...a few lines...some action...and BOOM (literally) he (could be) dead.

glad he's gone but won't be shocked should he return and play the "you left me behind to die" card on the joes. i hope not though so far they've managed to avoid most all of the cliches that could have so easily been incorporated.

but the way breaker came to be...totally juvenile...should have remained "the coyote" much cooler and reason to make a new character...unless he picks up bubble gum in the new episode it isn't breaker.

I have a feeling that after all this shakes down she'll need to go back to Japan to help unite the clan. SE will stay with the Joes, and SS will go "rogue" and end up in collusion with Cobra. I bet we'll see her atleast once a season though. If not, that would suck. She made the episode for me.

Part of me is sad he's gone, if only because it would be cool for his character to develop from cheesy joker to a more serious soldier, but another part of me wants him to stay dead to prove how possible it is for characters to die sometimes.
