* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: Despite the USSR being obvious villains, these games are quite popular among Russians since after the first one, the USSR stereotypes (along with [[EagleLand the]] [[AnimeLand others]]) are PlayedForLaughs.

* NightmareFuel:
** [[CruelAndUnusualDeath Death by radioactive weapons]] where the victim is covered with radioactive goo and squirms as they [[ImMelting melt away]].
** [[ShockAndAwe Death by tesla weapons]].
** [[RetGone Death by being erased from existence]].
** Soviet Terror Drones and Yuri's Chaos Drones.
** The Virus's toxic sniper-round in ''Yuri's Revenge''. It kills you and blows up your corpse into a cloud of poison.
** Getting turned into a Yuri Brute, being marched into a Grinder... actually many of Yuri's weapons/tactics fall into this category.
*** [[FridgeBrilliance Which makes sense, as Yuri would be trying to invoke this trope to break the morale of his enemies.]]
** Stalin in the first game by being a very accurate portrayal one of the most frightening dictators in history. Also see ShownTheirWork below.
** Yuri himself to many.

* MexicansLoveSpeedyGonzales: The whole series is very popular in Russia and post-soviet countries, despite it's less than flattering portrayal of the soviet side and characters.

* ShownTheirWork: JosephStalin's sociopathic behavior may appear like a [[HistoricalVillainUpgrade caricature]], but ''Red Alert'' provides one of the most accurate depictions of Stalin in any fictional medium, both in terms of actions and mannerisms. [[note]] Discounting his somewhat inaccurate-to-reality voice which actually sounded like on [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ig_-f3vmPrQ this video]]. This is his actual speech made after the Nazis' capitulation, complete with his "trademark" Georgian accent.[[/note]] . Which gives some unpleasant food for thought.

** According to [[WordOfGod Westwood]], the Allied ending leads to both Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert 2. The Soviet ending appears to lead into a completely different non-canon era.

** According to [[WordOfGod Westwood]], the Allied ending leads to both Tiberian Dawn and Red Alert 2. The Soviet ending appears to lead into a completely different non-canon era. Which doesn't make much sense, considering Kane's appearance in the final Soviet cutscene. [[MST3KMantra Best not to think too hard about it.]]
