As I'm watching the Cobra Kai series, I'm in awe with how phenomenal the series is in regards to inverting the conflict of the movies, while keeping true to the canon of those movies almost precisely.

Before asking this question, are there canonical inconsistencies between the three Karate Kid movies, or between the movies and the 1989 series, since movie series (especially from the '80s) aren't known for their canonical consistency?

I just finished watching S2E7: "Lull" (watching weekly), and I noticed that in S2E6: "Take a Right", Dutch was absent. This article is right that maybe Dutch couldn't make the road trip on such short notice, so this doesn't break canon. It's an incredible feat that they were able to have the other 3 actors reprise their roles alone.

That being said, has anyone noticed canonical inconsistencies between the prior movies/series and Cobra Kai?

  • @AnkitSharma Would the fourth movie affect the canon of Cobra Kai? Or did it affect the canon of the first three movies? – NobleUplift Oct 23 '19 at 16:11
  • Not seen Cobra Kai but The Next Karate kud never harmed the canon – Ankit Sharma Oct 23 '19 at 16:50
