* RealityIsUnrealistic: So the biggest gun in the game, the pride of the UEF arsenal, is the Mavor, a gigantic artillery piece that can lob shells just over 81 km - the length of the biggest maps. Sounds impressive and futuristic, right? The Germans [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paris_Gun topped this]] [[WorldWarOne in 1918]].

** The Aeons are a fairly dark shade of gray. On one hand, they're a [[ChurchMilitant militant human religious movement who want to eliminate all who refuse to join them]], and this is reflected in a [[KnightTemplar few of their commanders]], ''[[OmnicidalManiac especially Avatar Marxon]]''. However, they [[WellIntentionedExtremist fight for peace and harmony among all living things]], [[{{Utopia}} something they actually achieve in their ending]], and there ''are'' good people in Aeon, like Princess Rhianna

* TheAllSeeingAI: It's hard to say. This Trope is averted by units with stealth or cloaking but not so much in the fact that the enemy always knows where your base is.

** That said, in direct combat they'll have trouble with tier-3 units and expermentals will kill them.

* ILoveNuclearPower: The UEF. Their Tier 2 and 3 generators are fusion plants, and their commander mech can be fitted with a backpack missile silo, which can hold one nuke and one counter-missile. They also have a T-4 superheavy artillery that shoots nuke bullets.

** [[FridgeLogic Might not have been deliberate]]; that system has been shown to malfunction before. Leopard11 gets screwed by it breaking on him in the original's UEF Mission 1, letting the player kill him.

** The UEF Mavor was previously the biggest and remains the biggest ''gun'' in the expansion. It's a nuclear artillery piece.

** The UEF Mavor was previously the biggest and remains the biggest ''gun'' in the expansion. It's a nuclear artillery piece. While it's attack power is comparable to T3 artillery with a slightly faster fire rate, it has ''no range limit'', and can fire a continuous stream from one corner of an 81x81km map to the opposite corner, and ''will'' wear through shields and devastate your base.

The first nail in the coffin of this golden age is the symbionts, humans enhanced with cybernetic implants - the chief figure having had their brain merged with an advanced AI computer in a process patented by [[AbsentMindedProfessor Dr. Gustav Brackman]]. Unfortunately, the Earth Empire treats the symbionts more like slaves then real people which is something the symbionts and their father figure Brackman don't particularly like. So Brackman and a group of followers rebel, set up their own country - the Cybran Nation - and start waging a guerrilla war to liberate their fellow symbionts.

* EverythingFades: Averted in the same way as ''TotalAnnihilation'', although there was one considerable step back in that destroyed ships don't leave reclaimable sunken wrecks any more. Considering that ships cost much more mass per unit than land or air units, this was a pretty big omission.

* NoRecycling: Averted like in ''TotalAnnihilation''. You can reclaim the wreckage of destroyed units and buildings (and even functioning ones) for a quick mass bonus.

* RidiculouslyFastConstruction: Justified, like in ''TotalAnnihilation'', by the use of nano-particles to construct units and buildings, which work like laser-powered 3D printers.

* ZergRush: Given how easy it is to build a dozen Tech 1 land factories and have them all pump out T1 mobile artillery or tanks, expect to see a lot of this. On the popular Seton's Clutch multiplayer map, the front position players usually have to zerg or die. The viability of this tactic is actually a holdover from TotalAnnihilation, where it was absurdly easy to swamp an uninitiated player ([[ArtificialStupidity or default 'Hard' AI]]) with T1 anything. A common workaround is for all players to agree on a self-imposed 'no-rush' timer.

* ArtificialStupidity: Direct-fire units sometimes ignore little things like mountains between them and their target, and will sit plinking away at it forever.

'''''Supreme Commander''''' is a [[RealTimeStrategy real-time strategy video game]] by Creator/GasPoweredGames that has been hailed as the SpiritualSuccessor to ''VideoGame/TotalAnnihilation'', which is not surprising as they are both designed by Chris Taylor. Set in TheFuture, man has used quantum tunnels or portals that are opened from the fabric of space leading to a designated location that can be light-years away. Earth is unified into the Earth Empire and man starts to explore and colonize the stars with the development of this technology. Then it all goes sour.
