* The Heavy in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' started as a heavily armed, intimidating giant with a [[ICallItVera a beloved gun named Sasha]] and a Slavic accent (and slightly broken English), and the Heavy update includes a lot of Achievement names that quite blatantly parody Soviet Russia in general. Finnish translation ups the ante with ''Winter War'' references.

However, in other appearances he shows HiddenDepths (his DrinkOrder isn't vodka, nor does he get why everyone thinks he likes Tetris (Is just ''stacking''!)

* Downplayed with the ''Website/SCPFoundation'': while some SCPs were the product of the Soviet side of the arms race, the main instance of the trope is Captain Dimitri Arkadeyevich Strelnikov, via [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/reddawn his incomplete mastery of English, preference for Russian-made guns and hatred for Chechens]].
* [[https://m1-garand-rifle.com/ivan-chesnokov.php Ivan Choesnokov,]] an... ''enthusiastic'' poster of Russian guns and history.

Then there are tall, furry hats, the CossackDance, [[strike:borscht]] borscht, vodka (''[[VodkaDrunkenski lots]]'' [[VodkaDrunkenski of vodka]]), and everyone constantly being [[CrapsackWorld miserable]] and [[DeathWorld cold]], which is why they drink the vodka. These tropes seem permanently associated with the area. In recent years, [[SensualSlavs the Russian bride]] has started to turn up a lot. Chernobyl has also become very important in the outside world's views of the country, even though it is in Ukraine. [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/49/RedSquare_SaintBasile_%28pixinn.net%29.jpg Saint Basil's Cathedral]] will probably show up, too. No, it's [[IAmNotShazam not]] the [[SymbologyResearchFailure Kremlin]]. [[http://russiantraveling.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/001.jpg This is the Kremlin.]] [[note]]That church next door is the Cathedral of the Annunciation.[[/note]] (Image searches on "Kremlin" invariably turn up far more of the former building than the latter.)

* ''VideoGame/Half-Life2'' has sections suggesting vaguely Soviet past of the City 17. The color scheme of non-combine locomotives fit, there are numerous appearances of Cyrillic script and so on. It is not pressed very much, but it's present and rather clear.

** The Valhallan Ice Warriors of the Imperial Guards are basically an exaggerated expy of WWII era [[RedsWithRockets Red Army]] with their WeHaveReserves mentality turned UpToEleven, while the Vostroyan Firstborn are inspired by Ukrainian/[[RussiansWithRifles Imperial Russian]] UsefulNotes/{{Cossacks}} with a taste for BlingOfWar.

* Everything is cold and miserable. Mostly true, except in summer when everyone is ''hot'' and miserable � it's called "continental climate". OTOH, cities near the Sea of Japan do not have a worse climate as New York (and the ones on the Black Sea are downright ''californian''), and some central cities look quite better in the last decade (less cold and miserable and more brain-melting hot and miserable).
