* {{Expy}}: The Cybran's Command-class Carrier is a dead ringer for the [[HostileWaters Antaeus Adaptive Cruiser]], albiet without the ludicrously powerful deck guns.

* MoreDakka: UEF has a research option that adds more more cannon barrels to tanks, artillery, cruisers and battleships. They also get a few upgrades that allow most of their buildings to have turrets and anti-air capability, turning ''every structure they have'' into something that can defend itself. They also have ''three'' distinct artillery structures, so expect to deal with quite a lot of bombardment when dealing with them.

* RealityEnsues: Both Maddox and Thalia participate in destabilizing the alliance, the latter more than the former. [[spoiler:They are punished for this. Maddox just gets an honorable discharge, since he broke ranks as soon as the morally-questionable orders came in. Thalia stuck with it for far longer, and is arrested as a result.]]

** Political divisions still exist among the newly reunified humans following the events of ''Forged Alliance'', as the scars of a thousand year long ForeverWar aren't going to heal within one generation. One major problem is that a large portion of the Aeon were wiped out after siding with the Seraphim, leaving Illuminate citizens a minority in the Coalition. Compounding matters is the UEF has come to dominate Coalition politics both due to their majority population and because they tend to vote however UEF leaders tell them to, having lived for almost a thousand years under a highly regimented military junta.
*** The really ugly side of this shows up during the UEF campaign, as Maddox's wife expresses concerns about attacks against Illuminate citizens, and the moment hostilities break out, anyone of Illuminate descent is immediately rounded up.

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: One of this games single most useful additions to the formula is the automatic creation of selection groups whenever orders are issued or units are created in sequence. This makes commanding your forces from the strategic view much, '''much''' easier.



* BaseOnWheels: Not quite to the hilariously ludicrous extent of the original Fatboy, but the Fatboy Mk.2 is basically a firebase on treads, sporting four huge battleship turrets and a fifth dorsal turret the size of most ''factories''.



* BrainInAJar: Gustav Brackman. Also, humorously, Cybran experimental research building has a detachable giant brain that can be used to fight. Power of mind?

* MilitaryBrat: Dominic Maddox, the UEF PlayerCharacter, enlisted to follow in his father's footsteps, who had served as a Commander in the Infinite War.

Added DiffLines:

* MalignedMixedMarriage: Dominic Maddox, a UEF commander, and Annika Koenig, an Illuminate teacher. Her family was quite welcoming to Dominic, while his was deeply offended and disowned their only son. Dominic continues to get flak for it from his UEF comrades and Colonel Rodgers even uses it to question his loyalty repeatedly.

'''''Supreme Commander 2''''' is the 2010 sequel to the RealTimeStrategy game ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander''. The game takes place twenty five years after the events of ''Forged Alliance'', during which time the Seraphim have been destroyed and humanity has come together in a utopian peace. All is thrown into jeopardy, however, when the president of the coalition is murdered by an unknown party, with the leaders of the United Earth Federation, the Cybran Nation and the Order of the Illuminate blaming each other for the president's murder and taking up arms again.

** Experimentals in general are significantly weaker and cheaper compared to the previous games and behave more like an additional unit tier than the game changers they were previously.

* HumongousMecha: The ACU beats all sides. [[TwoWordsObviousTrope Two words]]: ''KING''. ''KRYPTOR''. The Illuminate Universal Collosus is right up there with it, but not quite as heavy. Never before have units the size of a fully-grown pine tree seemed so dwarfed in comparison. One could say that the majority of experimental units, in fact, are [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment HUMONGOUS Humongous Mechas]].
