In this installment, the USSR is at death's door, so General Krukov and Colonel Cherdenko travel back using their own time machine and [[NeverSayDie eliminate]] Einstein before he gives the Allies the technological superiority they need to win. They come back and discover that, while they are beating the Allies, they've lost most of their nuclear arsenal. In addition, the Japanese Empire of the Rising Sun (led by GeorgeTakei) has been created by their tampering and is attacking them. This is where the single player campaigns pick up.

* TimeyWimeyBall: A plain non-over-recursive TemporalParadox ensues if one [[BellisariosMaxim examines the excuse plot closely]]; The Soviets delete Einstein in from time in 1927, meaning Hitler wouldn't be erased from existence as his undoing was brought by the Einstein from 1946. UsefulNotes/NaziGermany still happens and the Red Alert alternate universe with Allied-Soviet open wars is severely compromised in this more historical scenario.

If you thought ''that'' sounded silly, well...[[{{Camp}} it is]]. This game is to RealTimeStrategy what [[Series/{{Batman}} the 1960s version of]] ''Series/{{Batman}}'' was to television. The whole game operates on little more than RuleOfCool and occasionally RuleOfFunny rather than any kind of real sense. This is ''not'' your daddy's RTS. It is your jokester uncle's, and it's likely this factor that convinced a large number of [[HeyItsThatGuy TV and movie name actors]] to join the cast for the ([[HamAndCheese often hilariously over-the-top]]) {{Cut Scene}}s.

->'''Emperor Yoshiro''': The Imperial war machine has been unleashed. Do not struggle against what is inevitable. All who stand in the way of our divine destiny will be swept away by the march of history. You will bow before Us, or you will cease to exist.
->'''Dasha''': Sir, it appears that the Empire has mounted a full scale assault.
->'''General Krukov''': ...What Empire?
->'''Dasha''': ...The Empire of the Rising Sun, of course.
->'''Dr. Zelinsky''': We now have... Two mortal enemies???

* RefugeInAudacity: ''Red Alert 3'' is made of this trope, especially the Empire of the Rising Sun. Psychic schoolgirls, {{Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross}}-style flyer/walker robots, giant robots - and then even bigger robots. With swords. The Soviets have armored bears, a magnetic satellite that whisks armored vehicles in orbit, and a ColonyDrop where you can toss a satellite (later a space station!) on the enemy. [[CherryTapping Including any of their vehicles you've whisked with the Magnetic Satellite.]] Ouch.

* MesACrowd: Clones of Yuriko are used to fuel to Rising Sun's superweapon, the Psionic Decimator. Also, if you are facing multiple Rising Sun commanders in a mission, expect to see a handful of Yurikos.

* FastballSpecial: The Soviet transport doesn't deploy troops normally. Instead, it ''lauches'' them out of a [[ItsRainingMen "man-cannon."]]. This includes the aforementioned War Bears, as well as the creepy tank eating Terror Drones.

** Yuriko's backstory is very similar to [[Manga/ElfenLied Lucy's]], has the powers and [[AxCrazy sanity]] that channels [[Manga/{{Akira}} Tetsuo]] and has a similar sounding name to [[CommandAndConquerRedAlert Yuri]], another psychic gone rogue (although Yuriko is definitely [[WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds not outright evil]]). Some fans also noted she takes some design clues from the 80s manga [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mai,_the_Psychic_Girl Mai, the Psychic Girl]].
