The Brotherhood of Nod, also known simply as Nod, is a faction in the C&C universe across many of its games, and returns as one of the two playable factions in Renegade X. Their organization bears resemblances to that of a religious order, a stateless nation, a terror network, and a secretive militia. They are frequently engaged in combat with their main enemy faction, the Global Defense Initiative.

Nod's theme is that of an aggressive and sinister cult, along with apparel, function, and combat style. Their leader is a man known as Kane, an icon who has possibly lived since the prehistoric era and has various references throughout recorded history. Their infantry ranges from conscripts with ominous facemasks and surplus military munitions, to devout troops equipped with protective suits and weaponized flame and tiberium arms, to robotic Black Hand soldiers equipped with high-tech laser firearms and optical stealth. Their cavalry include old-style Light Tanks, eastern-style APCs, armed Dune-Buggys, rolling Mobile Artillery pieces, rotary-bladed Apache Attack Helicopters, endlessly-fueled Flame Tanks, and Stealth Tanks complete with four treads and optical stealth cloaking and homing missiles. Their infantry are garrisoned in a shrine-like Hand of Nod, and their vehicles are deployed by airdrops at the Airstrip. Their combat support includes AC130 Cannon Bombardment and Nuclear Missile Strikes.
