* {{Expy}}: The other Allied leaders in the Allied campaign are clearly Charles de Gaulle, Margaret Thatcher and any of the West German Chancellors.

No fridge mentions in main or YMMV pages. It's not a trope.
* FridgeBrilliance: Yuri's faction. He uses units outright stolen from both the Allies and Soviets, who paint themselves blue and red, respectively. The color of Yuri's forces is purple - a color created from mixing red and blue. ** Yuri Prime (Yuri himself) is his faction's strongest unit. If you have an Allied or Soviet engineer capture a secret lab (which allow players to get other nation's special unit), you'll only get a Yuri clone, which is an EliteMook of sorts. Players may cry unfair to this, but if you consider that you'll ''basically clone him'', not to mention if you listen to Yuri Prime's BadassBoast, it makes perfect sense. --> '''Yuri Prime:''' "There's only ''one true'' Yuri!" *** Made into a hilarious headscratcher though because with The Yuri faction's own cloning vats you can have 2 Yuri Primes. * FridgeLogic: In the intro, a Soviet Apocalypse Tank is shown dramatically crossing the border from Mexico and driving over a 'Welcome to Texas' sign, crushing it...except the 'Welcome to Texas' side is facing the viewer, which makes no sense. Chalk it up to RuleOfCool.

I couldn't find any indication of them doing actual porn, but they have appeared nude.
* EvilIsSexy: And so is good - both faction's MissionControl chicks are literally played by ''ex-porn stars''.

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: Destroying the World Trade Center Towers in ''Red Alert 2''. Of course that is entirely up to the [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential player]] to do. However, destroying the Pentagon isn't. And that's ''the first Soviet mission''. To further hammer the point home, ''Red Alert 2'''s original box art featured a burning New York City skyline, with the WTC on fire. After 9/11, Electronic Arts recalled all of the unsold units, and for a month, you couldn't even buy the game. What did the new, less offensive box art feature? No NYC, but the American flag in the Soviet commander's monocle was replaced with a [[NukeEm mushroom]] [[UnfortunateImplications cloud]].

Misuse.
* UnfortunateImplications: As well as being HarsherInHindsight, the game's original cover (the trope image) depicted the World Trade Center with a plane flying directly towards them. Understandably, later re-releases had this removed.

** "Hell March 2" was the perfect choice of music for the Soviet invasion of America in the intro... and it also goes disturbingly well with footage of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTCkuHc__ZQ the Russian invasion]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jVjKJk0wmc of Crimea]] in February 2014.

** Prism Tanks, if properly micromanaged, are damn near unstoppable and can flatten a base in seconds with what appears to be a laser rave from hell. ** Navy [=SEALs=] too. They're basically mini-Tanyas, equally as capable of decimating Infantry as her, and can be mass-produced. Combined with the above Prism Tanks and nothing stands a chance!

* CompleteMonster: Yuri is a powerful psychic and aspiring overlord initially serving the Soviet Union, but soon reveals his ulterior motives. In the Soviet campaign he supports the invasion of the United States and later the rest of the world, building devices to turn the conquered peoples into mind-controlled drones. He assassinates Premier Romanov and frames General Vladimir to usurp the Soviet leadership, before attempting to kill the player because his continued succes has made him a potential threat to Yuri's position. Yuri's Revenge reveals that he was just using the Soviets to establish a network of mind control devices to enslave the planet, so there will be no will but his own. His subsequent plots include harvesting the entire population of Los Angeles for raw materials, holding a software company ransom and nuking Seattle until they give in, secretly assassinating world leaders and replacing them with clones, and planning to level all coastal cities in the world. Throw in the fact that his army uses slaves to mine their ore, genetically alters soldiers and civilians alike into obedient, mutated freaks, grinds up civilians, captured enemies, and his own units for spare parts or drains them for bioelectricity, and is built around mind controlling his adversaries, and it becomes clear that we are dealing with a very, very bad man.
