* LawfulNeutral: Switzerland is mentioned as being this in the backstory, despite the constant struggles with the EU in the years leading up to the GLA attack in 2028. One the other hand, it's telling that while the Swiss remain neutral all throughout (even managing to escape the devastation of the war with Russia), they not only agreed to help give the ECA advice [[SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments but also sought to save as much of Europe's cultural legacy as possible, including the entire collection of the Louvre]].


* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Plenty, but the epic Russian folk song "Polyushka Polye" from the main menu stands out in particular.

* GeniusBonus: Official lore states that the deaths of entire battalions of Red Guards were glamorized as 'heroic obliteration of the self in service of the state' by Chinese propaganda. 'Obliteration of the self' is the ideology of Eastasia in [[Literature/NineteenEightyFour 1984]].

* FanNickname: Secret Police General Bao Jin's unique Propaganda Airship is also known as the ''"Whale"'' among Chinese ROTR fans. [[spoiler: The joke version with meme faces and the Trololo song is commonly called ''"Trollship"'']].


* GrowingTheBeard: The team-change / reboot is generally regarded as this.a mark on him.

Added DiffLines:

* GoodBadBugs: Nanobots used by the Manticore Tank get disabled when under the effect of American propaganda leaflets. This has absolutely no effect on the gameplay at all and is so hilarious it was left in.

** Hinda''x'', due to stream director Hecthor Doomhammer's semi-obession with the song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mOPR2daG82M Hindabuilding]]. Replace ''x'' with whatever.

Added DiffLines:

* CrackPairing: [[http://forums.swr-productions.com/index.php?showtopic=4345 One fanfic]] ships the American Mother Of All Bombs from the original game with the Russian Father Of All Bombs. [[spoiler:The resulting explosion [[ApocalypseHow destroys most of Europe]].]]

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMutation: ''"Don't get mad, get Grad!"'' which refers to the GLA Grad's massive amounts of damage even after the nerf.

* CompleteMonster: The GLA are this in canon, but here they manage to be even WORSE. They continue the same atrocities they commit before, but now they barely even use any sort of justification. They are effectively just acting ForTheEvulz by this point.


* MoralEventHorizon: The GLA has crossed theirs ''before'' the [[RiseOfTheReds ROTR]] story even began, considering that they already nuked Beijing, launched chemical rockets at cities and eviscerated Central Europe in the original Generals/Zero Hour.
