* ZanyScheme: In the official profile of the GST, it's mentioned that the Tiberium Control Network's construction was a logistic nightmare because construction workers have nowhere to dump the Tiberium-contaminated debris. GDI's solution to this problem? Build an ''entire fleet of spaceships'' that can collect the debris and shoot them into outer space. Oh, and did we mention that at that point in time, humanity was on the brink of destruction and most of GDI's remaining resources have already being diverted into TCN construction? Yet somehow, [[InformedAttribute this was presented as a brilliant solution instead of a colossal waste of resources on a relatively small issue in-universe]]. Most of the official profile for CNC units managed to sound semi-plausible despite their liberal use of pseudoscience and ArtisticLicenseMilitary, but this part simply ''obliterates'' your WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief like a railgun shot to the face.

* TacticalRockPaperScissors: The basis of ''Twilight''. Every unit has an armor type (Light, Medium Ground, Medium Air, Heavy or Building) and usually one weapon type (Gun, Cannon, Rocket, Beam or Blast). Each weapon type is SuperEffective against one armor type (in those lists, respectively), and you do not have the unit cap to field a varied force.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: The GDI Supermax facility is probably the worst designed maximum security prison in history. It uses bars instead of steel doors, has little to no security measures and barely any prison guards, and one of the prisoners somehow got his hands on a ''knife''. Also, even though the GDI defenders have access to power armor and armored vehicles, Nod fanatics armed with [[RockBeatsLaser nothing but Molotov cocktails]] somehow managed to break in.

** As if that's not insulting enough, you won't even ''know'' that LEGION is the Nod EVA at all unless you [[AllThereInTheManual read the dev interviews]].

* 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.

* 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.
