* ShaggyDogStory: Remember how LEGION was set up to be super important in ''Kane's Wrath'' and how Kane kept saying that he's going to surpass even CABAL? Well, in this game, he's the Nod EVA. That's it. The most powerful AI ever created, reduced to the role of an ExpositionFairy.

Added DiffLines:

* AllThereInTheManual: The vast majority of the backstory can only be learned through the manual (i.e. Gideon's backstory), the now-defunct official website (i.e. unit profiles), or dev interviews.

Added DiffLines:

* HumansAdvanceSwiftly: Both GDI and Nod had a huge technological leap since the last game. Especially Nod, which went from a guerrilla force mostly made up of badly trained cannon fodders to an army of cyborgs and spaceships with laser guns. The in-universe explanation is that the decoding of the Tacitus advanced military technology dramatically.

Added DiffLines:

* MagicGenetics: In the Nod campaign, the player is injected with Kane's blood, which not only transforms his face into an exact replica of Kane's, but also gives him the ability to ''[[spoiler: survive a shot from a sniper rifle]]''.

* SuspiciousVideogameGenerosity: The first phase of the final Nod mission has two CPU-controlled Nod Crawlers helping you out, which makes things significantly easier for you, since you don't usually get computer allies in the campaign... Then the [[SuperPrototype Arcus]] arrives, your computer allies are gone, and all hell breaks loose.

* SuperPrototype: In the last Nod mission of ''Twilight'', GDI sends in a ''Prototype'' bomber as a last ditch effort to stop you. It's by far the most powerful unit ''anywhere'', being able to destroy even Crawlers with little effort. Its only weakness is the fact that it has to land to call in reinforcements (the three GDI AIs just give up before it arrives).
