** Likewise the GDI opening cut scene with McNeil (Michael Bihen) being commanded by Solomon (James Earl Jones,) aka Kyle Reese and Darth Vader. After Kane's appearance Solomon offers the best GDI jump jet soldiers to retake a base, already being dispatched from the Philadelphia space station as the Kodiak cuts a path across the atmosphere.

** Ackerman actually takes it UpToEleven after [[spoiler: his FaceHeelTurn, when he goes from awesome to CrazyAwesome. How crazy? He turned Mount Rushmore into a giant supervillain lair armed with {{Death Ray}}s and every other weapon of mass destruction you can think of... ''and no one even knew he had done so until he unveiled it''.]]

* [[KillSat The Ion Cannon]]Cannon]], especially in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade''. From the moment you activate it a light rain starts up out of nowhere as the atmosphere ionizes, columns of light swirl together over the target, and... ''BOOM'', everyone dies.



** The Soviet SuperSoldier in one of the ''Red Alert'' expansion pack missions didn't have such good lines, but was ludicrously {{badass}}. He fought tanks. He fought Tanya. He fought a ''battleship.'' And he won.
*** The first mission you use him has he and his dog airdropped into a sea of explosive barrels. One Allied soldier sets them all off. He isn't even ''scratched'' by the resulting explosions.

** Even canonically earlier, would be the end of the Soviet Campaign from the original Red Alert.

** Even canonically earlier, would be the end of the Soviet Campaign from the original Red Alert.''Red Alert''. To explain, up to this point the player had no reason to believe that there was any connection between ''Red Alert'' and ''Command & Conquer'' aside from the basic style of gameplay. There was, however, an apparently low-ranked bald-headed officer hanging out in the background of a lot of the Soviet cutscenes, but it was probably just a coincidence, right? Cue the ending cutscene. [[spoiler: In the span of a few short moments the victory celebration changes as Nadia kills Stalin, then Nadia gets killed by that nameless henchman... yep, it's Kane, and you just set the stage for the Brotherhood's rise to power.]]

* GDI as a whole gets one in Tiberium Wars. After several decades of peace, Nod comes out of nowhere, destroys their main command center (with most of their civilian leaders), takes the Ion Cannons offline and invades every single Blue Zone simultaneously. GDI takes the hit, fights off the assault, gears up, and pushes Nod back deep into the Yellow Zones. Then the Liquid Tiberium Bomb goes off and it looks like they've won... until the Scrin arrive, attacking cities all over the planet. GDI fights them off, turns around and successfully invades ''[[DeathWorld Red Zones]]'' destroying all of the Scrin towers but one. Kane may have succeeded in his objectives, and the Scrin may have been able to retreat, but from on a tactical level, GDI crushed BOTH of them.
