* AmericaWonWorldWarII: A very notable aversion (especially given the game was made by Americans), with most of the Allied cast being European and it not being entirely clear for a while whether the USA is even in the war. The Allied ending features a soldier who definitely has an American accent and carries American weapons, so it's likely that America did join in on the war effort, although just how much is not known. Later material indicates that they mostly just continued lend-lease support to the European Allies (as indicated by reuse of vehicles from ''Tiberian Dawn'') and only directly joined in the fighting after the war was nearly over anyway, mostly just handling occupational duties afterwards.
** Also, OneWomanArmy Tanya Adams is an American mercenary commando working for the Allies.

* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Einstein travels back in time and erases Hitler from the timestream in an attempt to prevent World War II. But World War II happens anyway when Stalin decides to expand his empire by launching a massive invasion of western Europe. Oops.
** Einstein himself even lampshades this in the game's intro video. When his assistant expresses joy at Einstein erasing Hitler from history, Einstein utters "Time will tell", implying that he's unsure whether or not he did the right thing.

* 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.
