* {{Defictionalization}}: The TabletopGame/BattleTech game exists in the Clancyverse. Entire teams of researchers and analysts work on distinguishing what's real and what was Game Balance or Authorial Fiat.
** Earth's Planetary defense force, as mentioned above, are officially named the [[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries Global Defense Initiative]]
** The first Earth-born 'Mech factories and design labs are in Japan. Naturally, the very first Earth-made Battlemech would be none other than a [[MobileSuitGundam Gundam]]. GDI later deploys [=GMs=].
*** In itself only possible through making a 'Frankenmech' of a Shadow Hawk chassis over Hunchback legs. All they had to do afterwards was to remove the shoulder gun mount and change the head styling. The 'bubble-head' GM is a 50-ton part-by-part knock-off, and fittingly quite mediocre.
*** Japan's entry into the Mech-developed field rather than mere research was itself driven by realizing the pirates that attacked them had an intact [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Stinger LAM]]. Cue the formation of a new super-conglomerate to pick apart that technology. The GM and VF projects were situated in [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Hakone]].

* NamesTheSame: President Jack Ryan and infamous SpacePirate Redjack Ryan, caused a few chuckles.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, the authors were discussing whether to go with C-Earth or RealLife Earth. The [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=158593 Non-canon Stories thread]] also has some posts that will not make canon. The discussion threads, if you dare brave them, also have older versions of posts that made it to the Story Only thread.

* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: During the second pirate attack on [[Creator/TomClancy CEarth]], this is the reaction held by a mercenary group, comprised entirely of Muslims, when they realize they have killed fellow Muslims, and the city they were planning on attacking is '''Mecca''', the most holy city in the Islamic religion (which got nuked in Battletech's backstory). This prompts an ''immediate'' HeelFaceTurn and they gladly fight off other attackers in a combination of HeroicSacrifice, YouShallNotPass, and LastStand. They would have been completely wiped out, with the leader dying in his cockpit of heat stroke, if the locals, moved by their resistance, did not gladly pull him out of the cockpit, with the main rescuer being an old man who had a heart attack from the effort of forcing the cockpit open, as well as the heat inside. In a bit of a TearJerker, the old man had prayed to God to [[BalancingDeathsBooks let him die instead of the mercenary leader]]. His prayer was, apparently, answered.

A bubble centered on the Earth of Creator/TomClancy's ''Literature/JackRyan'' series, 100 light years in diameter, is deposited on the outer edges of the Inner Sphere, in the ''BattleTech'' universe. Almost five decades after the event, Earth is visited by strangers from the Inner Sphere of 3020, and they're [[SpacePirates not visiting peacefully]].

* BiggerStick: While the ''{{Battletech}}'' chaps have the FrickinLaserBeams and the tougher armour, Clancy-Earth's effective BVR (Beyond Visual Range) capability is one of the key reasons why the latter has prevailed so far.

* MacrossMissileMassacre: Clancy-Earth aircraft throw a lot of missiles around. Then again, given how tough ''{{Battletech}}'' armour is, this is rather necessary.
* MassTeleportation: The event that transported Ryanverse Earth and its surroundings into the BattleTech universe is even referred to as an [[IslandInTheSeaOfTime ISOT]] event, in a nod to Stirling's novel, and was teleported into the [[Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo Grantville]] cluster.

* RagnarokProofing: Stated by name as being one of the reasons some Battletech technology is so large and heavy compared to modern standards. Earth technicians eventually make a compromise between Modern capabilities and Battletech durability they call "Seven Plagues-Proof".

* SuperPrototype: Subverted and defied; the first GDI monitor is an unstable hodgepodge of C-Earth and Battletech... uh, tech. The first prototype [=BearCat=] aerospace fighter is not mounting weapons. Both in-universe and at the writers' level, there has generally been agreement to take things slow and not do any funky stuff.
** The first actually made on C-Earth Mech the Gundam is actually little more than a restyled Shadow Hawk chassis over Hunchback legs with a Gundam Style Head that barely works due to little understanding on how BattleTech...uhh tech works and is nothing more than proof of concept test machine that never sees combat unlike the Gundam from the anime.
