** Kane himself, being the MagnificentBastard he is. His ''magnum opus'' being [[spoiler:how he duped the Scrins into invading too early, facing heavy resistance from both GDI and Nod, sending them to flee and free for him to gank their techs.]]


Added DiffLines:

* SuperPrototype:
** From ''Tiberian Sun'', the ''Mammoth Mk. II'' is absolutely powerful and armed to the teeth. Unfortunately, it also falls into AwesomeButImpractical.
** The ''Purifier'' Warmech is precursor to the ''Avatar'', and is SimpleYetAWesome. It's not as advanced as the ''Avatar'', and unable to upgrade itself. The biggest sell though, is how it's equipped with on-board [[KillItWithFire flamethrower]] that can be upgraded with ''[[UpToEleven Purifying Flames]]''. It is not an exaggeration that if a just ''one'' of them actually manages to get into your base uncontested, it can raze your entire base in less than 5 minutes.

** In the final level of ''Renegade'' you can hear the announcer in the temple occasionally warning that the "Computer Assisted Biologically Augmented Lifeform has been damaged", hinting that CABAL was already well into development prior to Tiberian Sun. [[spoiler: This Temple is also located in Cairo, the same place you'll find CABAL's core in Firestorm.]]

** Betrayal is one for Kane. Every single game will feature at least one instance of him executing ''someone'' for betraying him.

* CrystalLandscape: Tiberium fields. In ''Tiberium Wars'', can grow and extrude green or blue crystals. These crystal fields can spout out of the land, a rich source of resources... and full of dangers. Tiberium emits radiation, mutates lifeforms (including turning corpses into blob monsters), and can keep on growing without stopping. By the events of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars'', whole countries are covered in the stuff. stuff, with glowing rock glaciers and dried up bays full of crystals.

The first game, later given the subtitle '''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn Tiberian Dawn]]''', was set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture with a smattering of sci-fi elements such as alien crystals, stealth technology, and orbital lasers. A terrorist organization operating from various Third World nations known as the Brotherhood of Nod harnesses the power of Tiberium to challenge the rest of the world on equal footing, under the leadership of the charismatic and enigmatic Kane. The UN-backed Global Defense Initiative, a military coalition dedicated to restoring order and containing the spread of Tiberium, manages to hold the line and defeat Nod, killing Kane in the process. The game was followed by a plot-free expansion pack, ''The Covert Operations'', a multiplayer-only sequel named ''Sole Survivor'', and '''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRenegade Renegade]]''', an FPS that boasts an active modding community and a small but dedicated fanbase.

'''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSun Tiberian Sun]]''', the second installment in the series, is set in 2030. Tiberium is now spreading unchecked, forcing humanity to flee to the arctic or desert regions that can at least slow the substance's progress. As governments break down and GDI does its best to bring order from the chaos, Kane [[NotQuiteDead reappears]] to lead a reunified and invigorated Nod into battle once more. A crashed alien spaceship and an extraterrestrial artifact called the Tacitus hint at a larger purpose behind Tiberium, but ultimately Kane's attempt to use a missile to increase Tiberium's spread is thwarted with the man's death (again). The game was followed by the ''Firestorm'' expansion, in which Nod's battle AI, [=CABAL=], revolts and leads a cyborg uprising, forcing GDI and the remnants of Nod to unite to defeat him.

'''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberiumWars Tiberium Wars]]''' is set seventeen years later in a starkly stratified world. GDI has succeeded in containing Tiberium in areas dubbed Blue Zones, which are bastions of civilization and relative paradises compared to the rest of the planet. Yellow Zones are lawless wastelands where daily life is a struggle and Nod is seen as the last hope of the common man. Red Zones, meanwhile, have been wholly xenoformed by Tiberium and are stormwracked hells lethal to humans. Kane reemerges once more to launch a surprise attack on a complacent GDI, whose retaliation has an unintended side effect - an alien race called the Scrin suddenly invades, seeking to harvest Earth's Tiberium bounty. The aliens are narrowly driven off, while Kane succeeds in his plan to acquire their technology. An expansion pack, ''Kane's Wrath'', introduced sub-factions to the three sides and had a Nod-centric campaign telling the story between ''Firestorm'' and ''Tiberium Wars'', and what came after. It also details Kane's reacquisition of the Tacitus artifact from GDI, who had taken possession of it in ''Tiberian Sun''.

The fourth and final installment, '''[[VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianTwilight Tiberian Twilight]]''', is set in 2077. In the aftermath of the Third Tiberium War, the alien crystal mutates and becomes almost impossible to stop. Faced with human extinction, Kane and GDI struck an unholy alliance to build a "Tiberium Control Network", using information from Kane's Tacitus. Though this brings about an uneasy peace, contains Tiberium's spread and begins a new stage of harnessing its potential, GDI reactionaries and Nod separatists once more plunge the world into conflict. The story ends with a triumphant Kane finally achieving his millenia-old ambitions and the Tiberium menace ended once and for all.

* IAmNotLeftHanded: But the commandos shoot with that arm anyway, being BadAss and all. Referenced in ''Renegade'', when asked if he's gonna fight against the whole ship's crew all by himself, Havoc casually replies, "Just don't seem fair, does it? Maybe I'll shoot left-handed."

* JokerInmunity: Kane survives from the 1950s to the 1990s without aging, survives an Ion Cannon strike, a metal pole to the chest, and all the while manipulates the Scrin into invading Earth. He never stays dead for long, which his followers take as proof of his divinity. Even after the series' end a news report shows how people are unconvinced he's gone for good.
