Added DiffLines:

* 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.

* {{Badass}}: Commandos in all games.
** The original Commando unit is basically "Macho Man" RandySavage with a headband and high-powered rifle, [[OneManArmy leaving a trail of demolished buildings and slaughtered infantry in his wake]]... and [[IAmNotLeftHanded that was left-handed]]. [[CripplingOverspecialization Just don't ask him to deal with vehicles]].
** In Tiberian Sun both sides get a Commando-like character (Ghost Stalker for GDI, the Cyborg Commando for Nod), both of whom annihilate anything that isn't airborne, and regenerate health in tiberium.
** The ''Tiberium Wars'' versions lose their anti-vehicle strength, but are still deadly against infantry and buildings. Nod's one is also ''stealthed''. It carries over to the other games as well; basically, there's very little that can stand against a heroic Commando in ''C&C3''... and the Black Hand can train ''two'' of them at once.
** Havoc, the OneManArmy player character from ''Renegade''.

* ThemedCursor: When you have an unit selected, your cursor becomes a sonar-like pattern when hovering over passable terrain, a "no" symbol when over impassable terrain and a crosshair when over enemies.

The ''Tiberium'' saga is the "main" ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' series, the continuation of the story introduced in 1995 involving the multinational Global Defense Initiative, the shadowy Brotherhood of Nod, and an alien substance known as Tiberium, which arrived to Earth in a meteor crash in Italy, 1995, and began spreading throughout the world; it's rich energy properties and ability to leech minerals out of the ground make it a highly valuable asset.

** The ''Tiberium'' saga's signature Mammoth Tanks are typically a waste of time and resources better spent on smaller, more cost-effective tanks.

* MobileFactory: The Mobile Construction Vehicle from ''DuneII'' was imported to the series. The Expansion Pack for the second game also added a Mobile War Factory to both factions. This was finally taken to a conclusion in ''Tiberian Twilight'', where the entire base became a mobile factory.

* BeethovenWasAnAlienSpy / HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Yeah, so, the Black Hand, Nod's elite special forces group? They're most likely the same Black Hand that had [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne Archduke Franz Ferdinand]] assassinated. The Brotherhood itself claims to be around since the dawn of makind itself (which is actually plausible).
