-->--'''Kane to General Solomon'''

'''''Tiberian Sun''''' is the second installment in the VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianSeries. 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 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).

Released in 1999, the game notably raised the cutscenes profile of the saga, featuring for the first time renowned mainstream actors such as Creator/JamesEarlJones and [[Film/TheTerminator Michael]] [[Film/{{Aliens}} Biehn]]. The Scrin technology makes its first appearance in this game, as well.

An expansion pack was also released, called '''''Tiberian Sun: Firestorm''''', 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.

** For Mack, there is Vega. His island base is well-defended, but his forces pale in comparison to that of his boss Kane.

* EvilGloating: Kane gives a good one to Mike [=McNeil=] after breaking through the Hammerfest defenses in ''Tiberian Sun'' and stealing the sonic crystals, leaving behind a broadcast in which he glibly informs him that the sonic tank "will make an excellent addition to my collection", and that "'''''oh''''', and [[SarcasmMode sorry to hear]] about your ''brother'', [=McNeil=]. . . . . I hear he died a very ''slow'' and. . . ''painful'' death..."

* NoCanonForTheWicked: Played straight in ''Sun''. In ''Firestorm'', the two campaigns are a PerspectiveFlip to each other, as both sides face the same enemy, [[spoiler: CABAL]].
** Having said that, certain events in the Nod campaign would have to be canon for the GDI/Firestorm campaign to make sense: Slavik being rescued (as he appears in ''Firestorm'') and Hassan being deposed (GDI was fighting Kane from the start in their campaign).

* VeteranUnit: The concept is introduced here, franchise-wise. Hard to achieve and relatively minor improvements in return.

* InSpiteOfANail: No matter which campaign is played, Vega will "borrow" Kane's alien ship, the GDI base in Hammerfest will fall, and Kane will create a mega Tiberium missile. The difference is that in the Nod campaign, Slavik managed to retrieve the ship's content, Hammerfest remained in Nod hands ([[spoiler: and was used as the staging ground for their missiles to destroy ''Philadelphia'']]) , and the mega missile is fired off. But in the GDI campaign, it was Mc_Neil who recover the ship's contents, Hammerfest was eventually recovered (and Nod attacked it in the first place for the Disruptor sonic crystals), and the missile becomes scrap metal. Oh, and Umagon gets captured in both campaigns, although both the causes and aftermath of the captures are different.

* DoomTroops: The [[AIIsACrapshoot malevolent A.I.]] Cabal's cyborg faction in the expansion pack ''Firestorm'' seems to invoke this. Much of its armies consist of [[NightOfTheLivingMooks shambling, rotting corpses with cybernetic upgrades]], and its "Reaper" units are robotic scorpion-man hybrids with [[SkullForAHead skulls for heads]]. They're mainly used to destroy civilian settlements and to capture people so they can be processed to create more soldiers.

* PerspectiveFlip: The Nod version of events which also happened in the GDI campaign ''could'' be this: Why Vega was in possession of the alien craft, and how Hammerfest fell. The GDI campaign is silent on those two points, but the Nod campaign implies that [[spoiler: Vega was high on drugs and "borrowed" the craft from Kane, and Hammerfest was undermined from within by Jake Mc_Neil]].
