* TheDragonsTeeth: They have, besides silo-launched missiles, nuclear artillery, which is unique among the long-range units in the game because its nuclear shells cannot be intercepted with missile defense systems. In fact, in the expansion there is a Chinese Nuclear General - and as you would've guessed it - whose strategy revolves mostly around The Dragons Teeth. Improved nuclear tank engines and shells, nuclear carpet bombing, nuclear-tipped fighter missiles, cheaper nuclear silos, you name it. Played very straight here.

Added DiffLines:
* MagikarpPower: The GLA start off the weakest (their WorkerUnit can't even fight back against the other faction's), collects resources at a fraction of the others' rates, have no air units, and their units are overall weaker. But if they survive long enough, they become very powerful thanks to upgraded fast-moving self-repairing vehicles. Their vehicles work like this as well, gaining better weapons for every vehicle wreck they move across.

Killed Off For Real misuse. The trope is not just any death, but about the expectation of temporary death being subverted by making it permanent.
* KilledOffForReal: During the USA campaign in ''Zero Hour''.

YMMV sinkhole.
* LaughablyEvil: Despite being a murderous sociopath who only seems interested in inflicting pain and misery on others, he still manages to make everything he says a CrowningMomentOfFunny. * MadDoctor: If you defeat him, [[CrowningMomentOfFunny he'll admit that he got his degree from a mail-order college]].

Not a trope.
* ChineseWithChopperSupport: The Chinese military is depicted as heavily mechanized with a greater emphasis on sheer numbers of rugged, tough vehicles and masses of infantry.

The People's Republic relies largely on brute force and sheer numbers, culminating in a variety of powerful and heavily armored tanks, and has limited air power. China's playstyle emphasizes direct assaults and sheer power to defeat American technology and GLA stealth. Chinese troops and tanks gain special bonuses when in groups, and make extensive use of propaganda (passive healing) to support their troops. China has a major disadvantage in that its ground forces are generally slower than those of the other two factions. Due to having virtually no fast attack units, except for their MiGs, China is forced to make large, ponderous assaults with heavy units, a tactic that can be countered by the GLA's speed or the USA's air power. However, the Chinese forces are well-suited to winning drawn-out battles of attrition.

The [=MiG=] direct engagement aircraft is the backbone of the Chinese air forces. Four MiGs attacking the same spot can create a powerful firestorm which does good damage against anything on the ground. General Tsing Shi Tao upgrade loads his [=MiGs=] with tactical nuke missiles which create a nuclear explosion on contact. * AwesomeButImpractical: Nuke general can equip his [=MiG=] fighters with AreaOfEffect nuclear missiles. The problem: [[HoistByHisOwnPetard These MiGs don't cope very well with the damage they make]], meaning that every now and then, [[FriendOrFoe your [=MiGs=] might shoot down each other... or other friendly aircraft caught nearby]]. * CoolPlane: Individually, [=MiGs=] lacked the firepower to cause significant damage against heavily armoured targets. However, working in groups MiGs excelled at torching several enemy units at once by creating a huge firestorm. Better yet, firing 16 missiles makes a firestorm so large, that even an armored vehicle would dismember and melt before it was fully engulfed in the flames! 12 [=MiGs=] make storms so huge, an entire Overlord Tank can be completely engulfed, and most likely turned into steel soup.
