* NotDistractedByTheSexy: One of the quotes by Irulan recount the emperor receiving a beautiful sex slave from Hassimir as a gift and politely rejecting her. Such attitude made the Bene Gesserit scared out their wits since it showed too much more selfcontrol than they would like their puppet to have.

** Played with. Paul could, indeed, have prevented the Jihad. . . by never leading the Fremen against the Harkonnen's in the first place, thus allowing them and the Emperor continued domination over Arrakis and giving up on revenge for his entire House being murdered. He actually seriously considered turning away from his desire for revenge a few times, but ultimately decided that it was more-or-less worth the price (the Jihad).

Added DiffLines:

** It's also heavily implied that the Bene Gesserit seed "messiah" myths among various primitive cultures on planets (like the Fremen of Arrakis) specifically so that, if a Bene Gesserit finds herself on the run in such a place with no other allies, they can conveniently make themselves out to be said messiah, so they at least have some people around to help them out. These legends are ultimately what control Paul's fate among the Fremen.

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: He's been trained all his life to circumvent personal shields. Fremen have no use for shields.

to:

* DamnYouMuscleMemory: He's All his combat training has been trained all his life to circumvent centered on penetrating personal shields. shields, which stop anything moving over a certain speed, so his reflexes are trained to be "fast on defense, slow on attack." Shields drive the sand worms of Dune into a killing frenzy, so aren't used in the open desert where the Fremen have no use live. The first fight Paul gets into, his finely-honed-against-shields training reflexes won't let him finish Jamis off cleanly, and some of the other Fremen berate Paul for shields.toying with him.

Paul also had a chance to stack the fight in his favor by using a Bene Gesserit paralysis command on Feyd, but decided against it in favor of beating him in a fair fight.
