** Another on the LP front, but for the player himself: [[https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvqxe4XbcSiEzrZm28NjsLXmHkffCJmBY Zemalf]] beat Enemy Within on [[{{Unwinnable}} Impossible]]-[[FinalDeathMode Ironman]], with the Not Created Equal and Hidden Potential Second Wave options on, and had both Operation Slingshot and Operation Progeny active. Made it through Site Recon blind. Beating the game in Impossible-Ironman is hard enough. And what did he do? He beat the game with '''''zero soldier KIA's[[labelnote:*]]Well, apart from exactly one base defense blueshirt, who was downed by a cyberdisk [[ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill and blown up four times over]][[/labelnote]] and no lost nations. He finished the game with a perfect run.'''''

PC Gamer even wrote a story on him, calling him [[http://www.pcgamer.com/worlds-best-xcom-player-how-zemalf-beat-enemy-within-on-impossible-ironman-with-zero-deaths/ the best XCOM player in the world,]] although he humbly insists that he simply got insanely lucky in his playthrough.

couldn't find mention of her anywhere on the page.
* Sure, it sucks that the sequel takes place in a universe where XCOM failed, but think of what that means for the original universe. There was never a second war.

Despite being a civilian without any prior military experience (and thus having lower Aim and health than standard soldiers), she more than make it up by her high Will and guaranteed psionics ability.

Annette has already been mentioned on this page. For bonus points, This Troper is poor style in editing. Expunging accordingly.
* Meet Anette Durand, a woman with absolutely no military training whatsoever who joins XCOM when you free her. And is the most poweful psionics this troper had.

**** [[WebVideo/WhatTheFuckIsWrongWithYou Nash's]] New Year's Eve 2015 Iron-Man stream gave us 'The Life and Times of [[AC: Colonel Igor 'Geronimo' Koslov, Savior of ERF]]'. A surly Russian Assault, Nash took a shine to him immediately (because of his sweet name) and assigned him to almost every mission. Often wounded, never killed, chat elevated him to MemeticBadass status very quickly. ---->'''Nash:''' Oh don't do that... [[Film/BlazingSaddles You'll only make him mad.]]

**** How about Goddess, a Sniper with a 97% Hit Rate? Or Santa, a Medic who consistently saves soldiers with smoke and medkits? How about Geronimo? She's an Assault who has never been critically hit.

* Not a moment you'd probably appreciate, but seeing a mission's last [[{{Mook}} sectoid]] fire from across the map, landing a critical hit on an escort target, killing them right in front of the extraction zone? Badass. Especially if the job had been going perfectly beforehand.

** You can invoke this with the name, nickname, and customization options for your troops. Got a female Sniper from Russia? Give her red hair, name her [[Franchise/MarvelComics Natalia "Black Widow" Romanova]], give her Mimetic Skin and level her up to Major for Low Profile, and send her on all your Covert Ops. EXALT won't know what hit them. Got a female Heavy from a Hispanic nation? Name her [[{{Aliens}} Vasquez.]]
