** [[BigBad Caulder]] is a wicked MadScientist extraordinaire who is the sole survivor of a series of clones who killed each other off, before Caulder murdering his own creator. Caulder's only drive is [[ForTheEvulz his passion for immoral experiments]], and he happily perpetuates the strife caused by the world's ravaging, supplying weapons for Greyfield's conquest. One of these experiments is the Creeper Derangea, a virus which [[BodyHorror causes plant life to burst through the infected's skin]], resulting in a CruelAndUnusualDeath. Among Caulder's other [[KickTheDog pointlessly cruel actions]] are leaving the Beast to die for his failure; and poisoning the mayor and listening to him die over the phone. Caulder is also [[AbusiveParents hideously abusive to his own cloned children]]: he attempted to [[GrandTheftMe body-jack Cyrus]] in an attempt to gain immortality and poisons Cyrus with something meant to kill him as slowly as possible once he betrays him; drove Penny insane with his experiments, before trying to have her to die on the Great Owl; intends to dissect his "haywire" daughter, Isabella, and ultimately rules all of them "abject failures." Caulder considers life itself as irrelevant, and commits every atrocity he does [[ForScience purely to sate his own twisted curiosity]].

** Caulder from ''Advance Wars: Days of Ruin'' appears to be just an amoral scientist at first, excited by the [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt recent apocalypse]], since it finally lets him give his weapons some field testing to slake his curiosity. As the story continues, his "scientific curiosity" turns out to be genocidal sadism. He has invented a virus known as The Creeper, which makes flowers ''grow underneath your skin and burst through it, covering your body with roots, stems, and flowers'', all of which you can feel very painfully. The original virus wasn't good enough for him since it only infected the young, so he decided to upgrade it. Now it can kill everyone, even faster and more painfully than before. The photo they show you of one of the victims of this new strain of Creeper is horrid. It gets to the point where, when he tries to HannibalLecture the hero about how HumansAreBastards, the [[ShutUpHannibal hero throws it back in his face]], saying that it doesn't matter if he's right, becaue he's still a monster who needs to be destroyed. [[spoiler: Caulder even reveals that he's a clone of an amoral scientist that fought back and killed his creator and the OTHER clones of said amoral scientist. "Do you know what it's like to watch yourself die? ...It is FASCINATING!"]]
** The same game also has Greyfield, a malicious SocialDarwinist who preaches about ruling through fear. His crimes include: [[spoiler:scaring [[ButtMonkey Davis]] to death, messing with your units the one time he is your "ally" out of spite for disputing his [[TheSocialDarwinist darwinism]], making your force do "active surveillance" for perhaps both sadistic reasons Lin mentions, murdering [[WorthyOpponent Forsythe]] before he could try being a SilentScapegoat, and [[WeHaveReserves nuking his own men]] to kill [[AFatherToHisMen Brenner]].]]

His crimes include: [[spoiler:scaring [[ButtMonkey Davis]] to death, messing with your units After the one time world is plunged into ruin after a meteor storm, Greyfield takes what he is your "ally" sees as a perfect opportunity, codifying the New Rubinelle Army and leading a conquest to dominate the world. Greyfield wages war on the country of Lazuria, considering their people weak, intending to wipe out of spite for disputing his [[TheSocialDarwinist darwinism]], making your force do "active surveillance" for perhaps both sadistic reasons Lin mentions, murdering [[WorthyOpponent Forsythe]] before he could try being a SilentScapegoat, their populace in totality and [[WeHaveReserves nuking causing dozens of innocent casualties along the way. [[BadBoss Treating his own men]] allies and army as disposable if he doesn't consider them up to kill [[AFatherToHisMen Brenner]].]]his standards, Greyfield threatens everyone who so much as upsets him with execution, mass-executing his own soldiers once they catch the Creeper virus, and having Forsythe shot after he surrenders on account of being "Lazurian trash."]] After Brenner turns against him, Greyfield swears to have him and his entire battalion executed and sinks to his ultimate low when he has an entire city--with his own troops within--nuked for the purpose of killing Brenner, succeeding in causing Brenner's death. Considering everyone else utterly beneath him and convinced of his own indomitable superiority, Greyfield was at heart an incompetent, domineering coward whose greatest wish was to put the world under his foot.

* BrokenBase: Whether or not the tone shift in Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict was a good idea or not. Opponents say it turned its back on the entire series' lighthearted spirit in favor of a DarkerAndEdgier retool, while proponents say that the change in tone, namely the fact that death and the horrors of war get taken seriously now, means that the new characters are far more relatable and interesting than the shallow, vaguely creepy [[WarHasNeverBeenSoMuchFun implied sociopaths]] of the original series, and the proponents who have the American ''Days of Ruin'' specifically will often argue that, despite the DarkerAndEdgier tone, it's often a lot funnier than the original games.

** Over which of the American ''Days of Ruin'' or European ''Dark Conflict'' translation is better. Some people prefer the {{Woolseyism}}[=-=]filled script of ''Days of Ruin'', while others prefer the more straight translation of ''Dark Conflict''.

** Non-B-copter aircraft and navies (and by extension, characters who use those mechanics) can get this, due to being perceived as way too expensive and way too easy to counter.

Added DiffLines:

** ''Dual Strike'' comes off as one to ''Black Hole Rising'', mostly due to the new characters being pretty scattershot and the gameplay a lot more broken.
