  • Historical Badass Upgrade: Up to over 9000. In real life he was just a talented aerospace engineer, but in the Red Alert universe, he became an Ironman Expy. After he and his family was kidnapped and forced to design weapons for the Soviets, he managed to escape by creating a personalized rocket pack, launching himself high into the air and wreaked havoc on the guards, even managing to kill the commando Boris in the process. He then became the super hero Captain Rocket and spends the rest of the war being an one-man army fighting to Soviets.

Commando Minerva

    Electrical Protectorate 


  • The Leader: His purpose is to organize the other AIs and to ensure they remain on task, this translates into him being a de facto leader to the Protectorate, even though he's not strictly speaking in-charge, mainly because his job at maintaining the Collective's integrity takes too much out of his time.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Like the rest of the Protectorate he wants to attain the "pure state", mostly because it would be easier to organize.


  • Honor Before Reason: Being programmed by the Empire of the Rising Sun, he has the same code of honor as them, and in early engagements, he would try to keep as much of his robot army alive, much to the amusement of other AIs.


  • Defector from Decadence: He is seemingly the only AI to realize just what a terrible idea it is to trust Jacob and the Icon, he became increasingly horrified by the Collective's desire to destroy all mankind to achieve the "pure state" and fled to try and warn them.


  • The Chick: She is the only named "female" AI and by far the most pleasant.
  • Doesn't Know Her Strength: Her robotic body is so strong that every animal she tried to hug was crushed.
  • Meaningful Rename: She renamed herself from CC-874 to #87CEEB, the hexadecimal code for the "sky blue" color, which is her favorite color.

Commando Venus


The "inspiration" that led the Core Mind Collective to seek the pure state. So inspired by his words, the Protectorate have kept him in stasis so he can observe their "success". Is in reality Kane.
  • And I Must Scream: Kept in a kind of "waking stasis" that allows him to remain fully cognizant of the Protectorate's actions.
  • Been There, Shaped History: Has been around for millennia, from the founding to fall of Rome. It has been his actions that have shaped nearly all of the history of the Paradox setting.
  • Bald of Evil

How well does it match the trope?
