** Subverted in "Endwar Online" - after ten years of war, [[PhyrricVictory NONE of the factions won]], [[MutuallyAssuredDestruction the war has blasted all of their territories back to the stone age]], [[BalkanizeMe and their former territories have fallen into breakaway states]] [[EnemyCivilWar and civil war]]. Double-Subverted in that the goal of "Endwar Online" is to not just reunite the selected faction, but also to "win the Endwar" [[HereWeGoAgain by conquering the other two factions]].

* CapitalOffensive: In this game, part of the win conditions for defeating a superpower is taking their capital city in a three part battle. These capitals are Washington DC for the United States, Paris for the European Federation, and Moscow for Russia.

* BondOneLiner: Just prior to bringing up the mission results screen, your [=XO's=] will make rather nasty quips about your opponents if you won. For example, beating the EFEC as the JSF yields...or beating the JSF with the EFEC:
--> '''Maj. Alice Dennison:''' Sleep tight, Eurotrash.
--> '''Capt. Ilaria Cimino:''' Now i see why americans don´t believe in evolution.

* MnogoNukes[=/=]PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower: Due to the joint missile shield, no one can launch [=ICBMs=]. This just means that they have to get creative with their [=WMDs=].

* EMP: A mission support call-in that can disable enemy vehicles, drones and shields in its blast radius for a short time as well as [[InterfaceScrew removing the map]] on the enemy's screen and [[DefogOfWar revealing the targeted area]]. Interestingly, the Spetznaz level 2 EMP shows [[HollywoodHacking a hacker hacking a computer]].

* GatlingGood: The JSF Engineer can carry a portable gatling gun, the JSF fighter has twin gatling guns as its level 1 air strike, and the JSF and EFEC basic drone carry a minigun.

* ShockAndAwe: The European Engineers have an upgrade that gives them a ballistic shield with a built-in taser.

* AntiInfantry: Riflemen are designed to be this.
* AntiVehicle: Engineers are designed to be this.



* ArbitraryMinimumRange: Artillery cannot hit units that are too close to it.
* ArbitraryMaximumRange: Downplayed. Units cannot hit targets beyond their range, which is rather small by modern-day standards. However, due to the low camera angle and fixed chase camera, there is a greater sense of distance than other strategy games.
* ArmourPiercingAttack: Special attacks, air strikes and WMDs bypass shields completely. This can be used to quickly [[CoupDeGrace execute fleeing enemies]] when the unit can't stay around to engage.



* CurbStompBattle: A "predator" in the [[TacticalRockPaperScissors Combat Chain]] can easily wipe out entire armies of its "prey".



** Even the "prey" can eventually kill a "predator" in the [[TacticalRockPaperScissors Combat Chain]] if there are [[ZergRush enough of it]] firing at the same time.



** Transports have this as their {{hat}}, [[AntiAir filling the sky with bullets to shoot down aircraft]]. Again, the Russians take the cake with their transports having two barrels compared to the JSF's one and the EFEC's rockets.

* NoSell: A "predator" in the [[TacticalRockPaperScissors Combat Chain]] can shrug off the combined firepower of anywhere between 3 to 5 of its "prey". (practically an entire army)



* UnitsNotToScale: Thoroughly averted when it comes to units on the field. Played straight when a single transport helicopter drops off 4 tanks, [[ClownCarBase each as big as itself]].

* AttackDrone: JSF and EFEC command vehicles are escorted by a squad of these. They're armed with machine guns by default, but can be upgraded with missiles (JSF) or lasers (EFEC). However, they're not especially powerful against anything except gunships. Non-upgraded drones can also be deployed by Engineers to defend an Uplink. Neither variant can be directly controlled, though the escort variant can be ordered by the command vehicle to attack specific targets.

** Tanks and Artillery can be killed slowly with the missile attack of an upgraded UAV as they can't fire back effectively for the former and can't fire back at all for the latter.



* DroneDeployer: The Command Vehicle primarily attacks through an automatically replenishing supply of ground AttackDrones and can deploy a SurveillanceDrone UAV that can be upgraded to attack.



** It can be horribly tempting (particularly against AI) to call down a WMD strike on the last incapacitated unit of your enemy when victory is assured.

* SurveillanceDrone: The Command Vehicle can deploy a UAV to a designated position on the map. Said UAV can be upgraded with a missile attack, turning it into an AttackDrone.
