* LethalChef: A variation when the Kid uses her stockpot in the Bastion. While the Kid seems happy enough to eat the food, it slams the door hard on its way out: it ''[[AcidRefluxNightmare functions as a portal]]'' to Who Knows Where, and Rucks comments on it when the Kid tries to use the outhouse.

* {{Badass}}: Apparently the first person to ever serve a second 5 year term on the Rippling Walls, and was good enough that the Marshals trusted him to scout further than anyone. And that's before he takes on an entire continent on his own.
** The training missions you go on give descriptions of the elite and highly specialized groups from the Kid's town. By getting the high scores in all of them you implicitly say the Kid is every bit as badass as the elites of the units. All of them. At the same time.

* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: While Rucks is very strongly inclined towards [[spoiler: using the Bastion,]] he freely admits that he has no idea if it will work or not, and ultimately leaves the choice up to the Kid.
