* 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.

Later on, it's mentioned that a heavy anti-tank ambush from Nod took out '''a''' Mammoth, and a bombing mission cost another three.



* TheSpartanWay: Subverted; the document at the end of Chapter Twenty-Three explains that the reason why the GDI commando program has a "22% fatality rate and 98% washout rate" is because people make the mistake of assuming that commandos are trained in the traditional manner. Commando "training" is simply the fact that you're even in the commando program to begin with. There's only two ways out of the commando program once you join: you leave and go back to the regular military ("washing out") or you die in combat and that people criticizing/priaising the "brutality" of the "training" are misrepresenting it for their own ends.
* TakeThat: the author is...''vocal''...about his hatred for the official novelization, and includes a few choice jabs at the book. At one point Havoc pulls off a shot with a handgun at long range that deliberately mocks a similair scene in the book.

* WeHaveReserves:

to:

* WeHaveReserves:WeHaveReserves: It's sort of Nod's hat, but when Kane looks at the casualty estimates (as they don't have concrete numbers yet) and sees that Nod will have already suffered over a million casualties in the first 24 hours of combat, he deems the number acceptable.

** In one chapter, there is a brief scene involving a quartet of GDI troops riding a Pitbull, where the fireteam acts much like the Marines in ''GenerationKill''; one of the troopers is even eating coffee crystals right out of the bag, just like in the book.

* SlidingScaleOfIdealismVsCynicism: Strongly cynical. It does depict a war, after all. Hell, the ''very first words'' in the prologue are the famous quote from Creator/RobertAHeinlein about how force is necessary to guarantee survival.

The quote is a subversion/commentary on such attitudes in-universe, as the fanfic itself is about Tiberium War ''Three'', the extraordinary amount of violence in the previous two having indeed achieved little.

* GenreShift: The specialty of the 'fic is portraying war as realistically and terribly as possible... with the exception of the parts of the story involving Havoc, who seems to be [[BoisterousBruiser enjoying himself immensely]] and somehow emits a [[RealityWarper reality-warping aura]] that allows him to behave as if he was in a Schwarzenegger or Stallone 'flick. This is justified because hell, he's ''[[BadAss Havoc]]'', and by the [[RuleOfCool Rule of Awesome]].

* {{Crossover}}: Sort of - basically, it's ''Command and Conquer'' InTheStyleOf ''GauntsGhosts'', with a bunch of diverse world-building elements taken from wherever feels appropriate (such as the Black Hand as [[TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}} Space Marines]], and various units from the ''Kane's Wrath'' expansion appearing despite it being the story of ''Tiberium Wars''). Oh, and when Havok shows up, everything becomes an action film.

** ''Lots'' of shout-outs to ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''; for example, the Commander of the Nod forces is named [[GauntsGhosts Rawne]], one of the female GDI troopers is named [[Literature/CiaphasCain Penlan]], GDI uses heavily armored infantry squads referred to as "Armored Fist" platoons. The Avatar pilots being wired into their machines is quite evocative of Dreadnoughts, and on that matter, "Avatar of Kane." The members of the GDI 4th Recon Battalion are vague expies of [[GauntsGhosts the Ghosts]] as well.

** In Chapter 18, [[spoiler: LEGION'S]] preferred voice of choice is TimCurry. Rawne even comments that if [[spoiler: LEGION]] starts singing [[Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow Sweet Transvestite]], he's shooting his way out.

** 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''.
