* YouWatchTooMuchX: In one of the later Allied missions in ''Yuri's Revenge'', the enemy forces suddenly start throwing {{Flying Saucer}}s at your base. General Carville's reaction is that either they've got an AlienInvasion to deal with, or Yuri's been watching too much TV.

* MindControlDevice: The game features mind control with Yuri and more elaborately in the ''Yuri's Revenge'' expansion pack. Units change side (and color) and start fighting against you so long the mind control guys are alive and not controlling someone else instead. Furthermore there are two kinds of mind control: direct, [[PuppetMaster puppet master]] mind control that involves units temporarily commandeering others and less specific, broadcasting Psychic Beacon mind control culminating in the Psychic Dominator doomsday devices that [[spoiler: won the game for Yuri half a minute into the opening cinematic if not for both a lucky fighter crashing into a Dominator power source and Einstein conveniently pulling a functional time machine pretty much from hammerspace.]]

** During the Cold War, there was a conspiracy theory that the Soviets had a military base in Siberia containing psychic children who could kill people anywhere on the planet with a thought. The Soviets having psychic units in the game was probably inspired by this conspiracy theory.

** Then came '''''Yuri's Revenge''''', taking this trope to the logical extreme by making an in-joke ''on it's own history'': one Soviet mission had the player re-doing - via time travel - one of the vanilla game's Allied missions... from the other side. Bonus points because said mission enabled the Allies to win the war with the aforementioned re-take of the Cuban missile crisis... which this re-take mission, appropriately named "Operation Deja Vu", retcons into the Chronosphere prototype being destroyed and the Allies surrendering.

** By the Allied ending of Yuri's Revenge, Yuri is reducing to ranting at his prison wardens and demanding that they obey as they strap him into a device that would prevent him from using his power to mind control anyone else.

* WhatTheHellHero: While the Allies are supposed to be the "good guys" of the game, [[spoiler:General Carville's]] actions during Soviet campaign mission 7: [[TheSiege Chrono Defence]] are pretty much criminal. First, he uses propaganda to [[spoiler:round civilians into attacking the Soviet [[BlackSite secret military lab]]]], something that get people shot in any country. Then he brings [[spoiler: more civilians as [[HumanShield human shields]] for his forces before semifinal attack wave.]] (That's what inside the three trucks that appear shortly before, should you let them reach Allied spy camp).
