* MyCountryRightOrWrong: Subverted in ''Soviet Assault''; Orlovsky doesn't seem to like invading the United States. In the vanilla campaign, Colenl Sawyer is a mixed example, as while he understands that sometimes sacrifices have to made, he normally would choose civilian lives over other things. However, after Cascade Falls is nuked, he becomes noticeably more 'determined' to achieve victory before another one is used, no matter the cost. See MyGreatestFailure below for more.

* DarkestHour: [[spoiler:Missions 5 and 11. America has been forced to use a nuclear device on itself, and it is unclear what may happen next. On a more personal level: Bannon is dead, amd Sawyer's company is scattered; stranded in a charred, radioactive wasteland. Bannon's last phone call to his mother really drives in [[TearJerker the mood.]] Only by pure, unshakable cooperation and determination is the company able to reform and fight again.]]

** In the final mission of American storyline, [[spoiler: after a hard fight you manage to finally liberate the Seattle, thus preventing Chinese from making landfall here and, most importantly, prevent a strategic thermonuclear strike on said city. Everything looks good when suddenly ''massive'' Soviet force appears out of nowhere and start beating you ''hard''. And they jamming your communication so you can't call for reinforcements (fortunately, only temporarily). You fight in desperately all-or-nothing last stand when finally, Colonel Wilkins arrive with his tanks and start chewing Russians from the rear]].

** Sabatier attempts to [[InvokedTrope invoke]] the Boorish form on Sawyer in the Mission 9 intro. It backfires when Sawyer understands Sabatier's insult spoken in French and retorts in the same language.

** During the missions that take place in America, the Soviet propaganda shows them occupying ''half of the Unites States'' by the third mission, even the nearby sections of ''Canada and Mexico''. They also claim the American civilian population is welcoming the invasion as a liberation and are joining the Soviets. In reality they only control the area of Washington State near Seattle and Tacoma, with the furthest they ever get being the Cascade mountain range. And the American civilians are ''extremely'' hostile to the invaders, grabbing any gun or weapon they can get their hands on and fighting back. Romanov even says in the mission briefing that Soviet troops were surprised at the level of resistance, and that ''everywhere'' they went they were greeted with gunfire.

* PoliceAreUseless: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], since the police forces of Seattle and Washington State are not meant to engage professional soldiers, armoured vehicles and ''attack helicopters''. Debatably even averted, as they still manage to do their part, and are seen building and defending barricades with revolvers and otherwise helping during the evacuation.

* TatteredFlag: In the multiplayer, there's a subtle example in the two flags shown at the top of the screen amongst other important match info. The flags start pristine and become increasingly tattered as units are lost. Since reinforcements are infinite and objectives are what counts, it's possible for the flag in worse shape to end up winning the match.

** Orlovsky is enraged at the idea of Malashenko wanting to shoot the Americans conducting guerilla warfare against the Russians, as the former feels they are still civilians.

* InferredHolocaust: If you fail to retake Seattle before the nuclear attack is launched, it is implied that this is what befalls the world as the Soviets also resort to nuclear weapons in response to the Americans having resorted to them ''twice'' in repelling the invasion.

Added DiffLines:

* BreakTheHaughty: Captain Bannon, who's arrogance and careless tactics on the battlefield chafes Colonel Sawyer all throughout the campaign. And then he accidentally fires upon a group of surrendering Russian civilians, earning him the Colonel's wrath when they return home. And this is all ''before'' the Russians have even attacked Seattle.


Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: The Soviets may have seized large parts of Washington State, but it gradually becomes obvious that for all their guns and tenacity that seizing a country as large and as hostile as the US by conventional means is a fool's errand. Lampshaded by Colonel Orlovsky, who by the time the Americans have launched their offensive to liberate Seattle has given up on any notion of victory, even with the incoming Chinese armada. This is in stark contrast to the Soviet propaganda that insists that the Red Army has encroached half the country, where the Soviets are under constant fire from a rebelling populace and unable to expand their campaign beyond Washington.

* AnAsskickingChristmas: Played straight, and then [[TearJerker painfully subverted]]. Parker and the rest of the U.S. forces successfully drive the Soviets out of the festively-decorated Cascade Falls, only for fresh new Soviet reinforcements to arrive, [[spoiler: necessitating the use of a nuclear strike, and Captain Bannon stays behind to draw the Russians into ground zero. The entire ending cutscene is simply heartwrenching.]]



* BigDamnHeroes: In 3rd mission of American campaign you are taking part in defending the Pine Valley town against massive Soviet attack. When finally Reds are starting overrunning you, suddenly, the USS ''Wisconsin'' appears and starts annihilating the Soviets. And then you can use its guns to finish off the rest of enemy forces.
