Added DiffLines:

* StateSec: True to the games, the fic portrays the Brotherhood of Nod's [[WarriorMonk Black Hand]] as this. They're a separate army that operates under its own command structure, answering only to Kane. One of the [[FictionalDocument GDI intelligence reports]] states that Black Hand units are dispatched to troubled areas with civil unrest to reestablish order, among other things, and Black Hand officers of significantly lower rank are able to overrule high-ranking Nod officers.

The series is also ''very'' quotable, as the sheer number of excerpts that have been quoted on ThisVeryWiki prove.

* DoubleTap: After stabbing [[spoiler: an Acolyte]] in the throat, Havoc shoots him in the head for good measure. [[GenreSavvy He has good reason to, though, Nod troops have a tendency to pop stims and continue fighting after being clinically dead]].

** In Chapter Twenty-Three there's a GDI WildWeasel mission involving a group of Firehawks that use their stratosphere boosters to fly ''over'' Nod radar coverage and then come straight down on the SAM control bunkers. It is explicitly described as "playing Zeus."

** Also, in chapter 9, Corporal Colt is knocked down by a Nod militant screaming "Die Infidel!". After shooting him in the neck? "No."

* 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.

* XMeetsY: The Shadows are a combination of the stealth mode of the [[VideoGame/{{Crysis}} Crysis Nanosuit 2.0]] and [[VideoGame/{{FEAR}} Assassins]]. This has actually been confirmed by WordOfGod.

** 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]].
