Funny: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3
  • There were Valentines Day videos of the females from the game. Takara's is funny and gives an ideas of what to expect, then we get one from one of the actors in the game, Ric Flair.
  • Speaking of Flair, marketing for Uprising included videos, videos that consisted of wrestling style promos where he would be attacked by someone in a bear suit, complete with Russian hat and evil glowing red eyes.
  • During the Santa Monica mission in the Rising Sun campaign, you can find the EA Games studio not far from your base. The tooltip mentions that the space-time continuum could be irreparably damaged should it come to harm. Destroy it, and one of your soldiers declares that their ill-begotten products shall taint the shelves no more.
  • When President Ackerman betrays you in the Allied campaign, you are tasked with destroying a firebase at Mount Rushmore in order to preserve peace with the Soviets. The firebase is heavily defended, but its real teeth have to be seen to be believed; the defenders have weaponised the presidential busts. George Washington gets Eye Beams!
    Allied soldier: Jefferson! No!
    Allied soldier: Why, Honest Abe, WHY?!
    Allied soldier: But I visited your memorial!!''
  • This gem from the Soviet campaign:
    Krukov: "You see Commander, while you were hiding behind the barricades of Leningrad, our enemy was thrusting deeply into the Motherland's tender nether-regions."
  • The various lines you hear from soldiers at certain points.
    Conscript: How did the Allies get an aircraft carrier into lake? It would take many men and hours to carry it!
    Imperial Warrior: Satellites? Such inelegant weapons.
    Engineer: Put money in bag. I will not ask second time.
  • Allied Advisor: "Flirting? I was just... making conversation!"
  • The enemy Commanders in Uprising's "Commander's Challenge" are all a riot, but this little "bonus video" (after beating all the main missions and bonus missions) certainly takes the cake, combining all the best "WHAT?"s, "This Cannot Be!"s, and even a Precision S Strike at the end... sorta...
  • The spy briefly showing his James Bond-esque lecherous nature at the beginning of the mission where he has to collaborate with Tanya
    Hmm, Tanya, she intrigues me...
  • The bloopers, notably the problems with the word Man-cannon, JK Simmons even comments on the absurdity of the concept. "Really?" (eyebrows up).
  • From the Conscript. "As a child I always dreamed of torpedo attack on dolphin!" Even funnier because that can literally happen.
  • In the Soviet campaign, the Russians launch an attack on the Allied headquarters in Geneva. Apparently the most logical plan is to teleport in a fleet.
  • The entire cinematic where the Emperor's son warns him about an impending treaty-breaking surprise attack on... Pearl Harbor. The Emperor immediately says the islands are filled with historical monuments and half the Japanese fleet is stationed there, there's no way the Allies would be dumb enough to try that. The scene's played completely seriously (since WWII never happened in this timeline) but the player will likely be laughing aloud.
    • Unless you are scratching your head wondering how the Empire got Pearl Harbor without a World War II, considering the points of divergence are all after the Great War and even more after the USA's annexation of Hawaii.
  • Checking one of the terminals on the final level of the Yuriko mini-campaign in Uprising yields this gem:
    Yuriko Omega: This is a laundry list. Literally. What do they need with 2000 plaid skirts?
