* CastFullOfCrazy: While the first and third parts are even trying to seem serious and use an alternative story, all the elements of the series are practically brought to the point of absurdity in this game, including trucks with terrorists and the Mad Ivan with dynamite/

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

Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadBugs: Even after multiple patches, the game regains quite buggy:
** The amount of extra damage Prism Towers receive from being assisted by another Prism Tower is defined in the game files as a straight multiplier the game converts into a percentage by multiplying it by 100 before applying. Maps can override this value for that one map only. However, if the [=[General]=] section containing this value is declared in the map file (most official maps do) but the value itself isn't, the engine falls back on a default value of 100 that's erroneously declared as a percentage already, resulting in the engine multiplying it by 100 again to make all assisted Prism Towers inflict 10,000 times their normal damage per shot.
** While the Soviet Industrial Plant reduces all vehicle costs, it does not affect the amount refunded when said vehicle is sent into a Grinder. This can be abused for infinite money.

** Sending a flaktrack full of engineers into an enemy base can end a match in minutes. The AI is aware of this tactic and ''will'' use it against you.

** Sending a flaktrack full of engineers into an enemy base can end a match in minutes. The AI is aware of this tactic and ''will'' use it against you. Not quite as bad as some of the others, due to Flak Tracks being [[FragileSpeedster incredibly flimsy]] and easily falling prey to even token defenses.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: The fact there was never a campaign for Yuri's faction seemed like a missed opportunity, and could have been a way to introduce more named characters working under Yuri.

** The music from the game, especially the Hell march, has become so strongly associated with the Soviet and Russian parades that YouTube is almost overwhelmed with commercials, where the music from the game is added to the video with real parades.

Added DiffLines:

* CultClassic: At least in Russia, because of StealthParody on stereotypes about the Soviet Union and the fact that Red Alert 2 is a rare game where Russian children could choose their country as a protagonist. On top of that, it's just a classic of old strategies.


Added DiffLines:

** And let's not forget that in this game there is a unit of "Libyan terrorists" who ride around in a truck and can be pierced into buildings or a group of units ... This is not so much fun after a series of similar acts of terrorism in Belgium and France ..
