** After you try to pacify [[spoiler:Bloodwing]] and Jack kills [[spoiler:her]] via ExplosiveLeash, he gloats that he's going to have [[spoiler:her]] remains put on display in his gallery in Opportunity. Come the time you have to raid opportunity, and guess what you find.

** Goliaths are an interesting example of the trope. They're human enemies and thus the natural reaction is to aim for the head. Suddenly their helmet pops off revealing their tiny skulls and they go into a rage, attacking friend and foe alike. The more kills they get, the more powerful they get. Granted now you can crit them on the head but when they're charging at full speed, it's a bit dicey at times. Plus their heads are really tiny and ''flailing about on what remains of their spinal chord''.

Luckily(?), they're rather large targets, so you can unload almost any gun on them without worrying you'll miss a shot.

* BigBeautifulWoman: Ellie embraces this trope. Her girth is stupendous, but the only person who disparages it is her mother Moxxi. Mr. Torgue and her own brother think she's quite attractive--and so does Ellie herself.

** Krieg, as befitting a Psycho fights in a style that's either completely suicidal (the Mania tree) or erratic and reckless (the Bloodlust tree).

*** Hyperion weapons can be seen as opposites to Dahl's - rather than fire in short bursts, you need to keep firing to maintain accuracy, which can burn ammo rather quickly. This also makes the first several shots very inaccurate; a Hyperion SMG might have to empty half its magazine before it reaches max accuracy, and Hyperion sniper rifles lack the one-shot accuracy that sniper rifles are generally prized for.

* CharacterAlignment: The ''TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons'' system is {{invoked}} and [[ParodiedTrope parodied]] in ''Tiny Tina's Assault On Dragon Keep''. There are 9 class mods for each character, one for each of the nine core alignments of ''TabletopGames/DungeonsAndDragons''. Each gives different stat boosts, but they have absolutely no effect on the character's actual behavior.

** Combined with a BossRush is the Four Ancient Dragons in Tiny Tina DLC. Each Dragon is one particular type of element and has a gimmick that compliments the group as a whole, which means you can't just split your fire between them.

** The enemies in technicals will actively try this against you, since they're often at your level or higher so they can actually deal more damage to you than you would to them. The Caravan car can and will destroy you if you try to stop it by blocking it's path with your car (because it is flagged as part of the environment and can't be destroyed). Bikers and Sand Skiffs won't try this, as the former has much less HP than you while the latter would rather just strafe you with their guns.

* AssholeVictim: Dave in Overlook. During one quest where you're helping out the house-bound citizens of that town, he constantly berates and makes sexist remarks at the lady who gives you the quest. Then when you help create a shield for the town to protect against Hyperion's bombardment, the lady tells you to fire a mortar at the town to test the shield. The first shot hits (and completely obliterates) Dave's house. Then she actually activates the shield and has you fire another shot to test it.
-->'''Dave:''' Karima, don't be upset that Jack fed your husband to the Grinder... heh, I'll bed ya if you ask nice enough! ''(cackles, then dies screaming)''
