** There's a reference to ''Franchise/MassEffect'' in the form of a reporter named Emily Wong, as well as her cameraman Tim, whose description resembles that of the "gargoyles" from ''SnowCrash''.

-->We forge futures out of pain and grief, Commander. The computers and the communications officers and the [=EVAs=] and the displays only serve to isolate us so we can be inhuman. We're monsters, son. Cold, mechanical, rational monsters, and the only way we win is by being colder, more mechanical, and more rational than the next monster moving his little pieces on the screen. That's how war has been fought since Stalin rolled into the Allies a century ago. You point, you click, and they die. It's how it works.

** Chapter Seventeen has a group of recon troopers with the callsign of [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Caprica]], and also has [[Film/IronMan "Jericho"]] cluster missiles. There's also a Master Sergeant Lyons, which may be a reference to ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}''.

*** Several of the tank names appear to be references. For example, there's also a tank named Film/{{Goldeneye}}, and another named [[GodHand Demon Hand]].

[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As its name indicates]], ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/3654039/1/Tiberium_Wars Tiberium Wars]]'' is a {{Novelization}} of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'' by the same author behind ''Fanfic/{{Forward}}'' and ''Fanfic/{{Renegade}}''. The fanfic was written in direct response to the official {{Novelization}}. As would be expected, it follows the actual game's plot fairly closely, though it takes a highly in-depth look at the ''Tiberium'' universe, and creates numerous characters to populate the otherwise faceless armies of the Global Defense Initiative and the Brotherhood of Nod, as well as exploring the respective factions' technology, history, and mindset. Established characters are used (with some of them even getting their own extra subplots) as well as original characters filling in the roles of infantrymen, tankers, pilots, and the [[NonEntityGeneral faceless commanders]].

The author himself has stated that he was heavily inspired by Creator/DanAbnett's ''Literature/GauntsGhosts'' series, as well as ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' in general. Other inspirations include nonfiction works like ''GenerationKill'' and ''House To House: A Soldier's Memoir''. As the fic is based on the military and warfare, expect to see lots of MilitaryAndWarfareTropes.

Added DiffLines:

* BadVibrations: Zig Zagged. The earth rumbling as Mammoth tanks approach is most ''definitely'' this for Nod, for [[TheCavalry GDI on the other hand]].


Added DiffLines:

* PaintingTheMedium: The sheer feeling of terror and seemingly unstoppable nature of the Mammoth Tanks turns the narrative into borderline PurpleProse, which reaches full-on Ragnarok imagery once they go head-to-head with the bulk of Nod's Avatars in Washington.

*** Sergeant Bendis seems to be another play to ''{{Firefly}}'', as he shares a name with an unfortunate private in the series' pilot. [[spoiler: Like said private, Bendis is killed when his position is overrun.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Mammoth Tanks, The reaction of Nod soldiers facing them and their first arrival on the battlefield is complete and utter terror.


Added DiffLines:

* TheJuggernaut: Mammoth Tanks. The first scene involving them practically casts them as Godzilla in a Kaiju movie, with Nod as the massively outmatched Godzilla Defense Force. Indeed, not ''one'' reference of a Mammoth tank going down is made, even when going up against Avatars.


Added DiffLines:

** Another group of poor Noddies up against Mammoth tanks with nothing larger than a Scorpion.
