: Communist characters used as villains.
- Straight: General Khlebosupov is a paranoid Jerkass who mistreats his underlings and plots to start World War III - and it's up to Agent Bob to stop him.
- Exaggerated: General Khlebosupov and all his friends are bona-fide Commie Nazis, murdering their own people left and right and generally acting like the biggest assholes in the universe.
- Downplayed: General and his colleagues are loyal to the Soviet ideal of better living for the working class, but believe that armed confrontation over it is inevitable.
- Justified: General is a head of the military in a state that's famous for it's repressive nature even compared to their Eastern Bloc allies.
- Inverted: Chummy Commies
- Subverted: General and his collegaues are imagined to be Dirty Communists in the West, but when Agent Bob meets them, they turn out to be alright people.
- Double Subverted: At first, that is. In reality, they are Affably Evil, and will gladly kill and even torture people in the name of expansion and more power.
- Parodied: General Khlebosupov and his cronies have abandoned personal hygiene because of soap shortages, making them literally "Dirty Communists".
- Zig Zagged: ???
- Averted: The story uses Western Terrorists backed by Corrupt Corporate Executives as the primary antagonists, with no Communists in sight.
- Enforced: The story is a Spy Drama written at the peak of the Cold War. Who else could be a main villain in this case?
- Lampshaded: "Didn't you have enough ideologically-motivated wrongdoings for today, General?" "KONESCHNO NYET!" note
- Invoked: ???
- Exploited: ???
- Defied: ???
- Discussed: "Darn... these Commies are always up to no good. You teach them a lesson, Agent Bob." "Will do."
- Conversed: "And again, we see the Commies as the bad guys. Don't the filmmakers know that the Cold War is over?"
- Deconstructed: The work goes out of it's way to show that people in Eastern and Western camps are really Not So Different after all.
- Reconstructed: However, this does not make Communist regimes any less repressive, even in spite of being staffed by normal people.
