* CantKillYouStillNeedYou: In the end of the Soviet campaign, Stalin and Nadia are both dead due to Kane's manipulations. He keeps the player character alive to serve as the new leader of the Soviet Union - and presumably his puppet.

* CripplingOverspecialization: The Allied cruiser deals heavy damage and can hit targets at extremely long ranges. But on the other hand, it's expensive, moves very slowly, and is completely defenseless against air units and submarines. A cruiser that is not protected by gunboats and destroyers is unlikely to survive very long.

* LongRangeFigher: The Allied cruiser has the longest range of any unit in the game, and it deals a ''lot'' of damage. It can hit targets nearly an entire screen away. A single cruiser can decimate an enemy base in minutes if not stopped.

* ZergRush: A popular multiplayer strategy for Soviet players is to simply spam a huge force of heavy tanks and swarm an Allied base. This is a very difficult tactic for Allied players to defend against.

The first game in the '''''Red Alert''''' series, a spin-off of the original ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'', using the same engine and gameplay as the ''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries Tiberium]]'' saga to tell a story of an AlternateHistory WWII fought between the Allies and [[UsefulNotes/NikolaTesla Tesla]]-powered [[RedScare communists]] bent on [[TakeOverTheWorld world domination]]. Red Alert provides a contrast with its successor thanks to a serious and camp-free tone. Released by Creator/WestwoodStudios in 1996 for DOS and Windows (SVGA) platforms.
