Added DiffLines:

* LifeDrain: ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert3'', the Soviet is likely the only non-magical military faction to utilize this attack. Their Main Battle Tank, the Hammer, utilizes it as part of a secondary ability, and a faction-wide upgrade called "Grinder Treads" lets the Hammer, Apocalypse and other tracked vehicles recover health by running over enemy infantry (or tanks for the Apocalypse).

* HistoricalVillainDowngrade: They are clearly modeled after ImperialJapan, which in real life was infamous for its war crimes, including pointless mass murder by the hundreds of thousands, enslavement of tens of thousands of women as sex slaves, and performing medical experiments on prisoners from their colonies that killed thousands of people. Even the whole honor aspect that's presented as a joke in the game was a scary thing in real life; they considered surrender dishonorable and would execute or enslave surrendering enemies, and fed their civilians propaganda about the Allies that drove them to commit suicide by the tens of thousands when America invaded the Japanese home islands. All of these thing are of course never brought up in the game and the Empire is simply presented as an over-the-top comedic organization.

Added DiffLines:

* WeatherControlMachine: Allied superweapon in ''Red Alert 2'', designed by Einstein after the US loses its nuclear capability. How it works is simple: the epicenter receives a constant, rapid-fire barrage of extremely devastating lightning bolts for as long as the storm is active while it also randomly spawns lightning clouds across the area of effect. If placed correctly, it can wear down a good two-thirds of a Construction Yard's health.

* RisingEmpire: Empire of the Rising Sun is this, in contrast to the well-established superpowers (the Allies and the Soviets) who were already at each other's throats, all of them vying for control of the world.
