Added DiffLines:

* ATasteOfTheirOwnMedicine: If you threaten to shove her back into the Auto-Doc she came from, she'll threaten to do the same thing to you before you confront her.


Added DiffLines:

* PayEvilUntoEvil: If the Courier acted like an ass around her, she'd arm the hallway with traps before your final confrontation with her.

* BaldOfEvil: Partly Deconstructed. He lost his hair thanks to his ghoulification, but doesn't go feral or lose his human traits (such as his voice), unlike most ghouls. Even before his ghoulification, he was narcissistic and manipulative, and was determined to ruin another man's life for living a happier life than him.

* MotiveRant: If the Courier was nice to him, he will explain his motive for [[spoiler:ruining Sinclair's life]] after he explains his EvilPlan.
--> '''Courier:''' What was you problem with [[spoiler:Sinclair]]?\\
'''Dean:''' Problem? All high-and-mighty. ''Lording'' it over everyone. Acting so...self-righteous, like ''nothing'' could touch him. ''He'' was the one with the problem. Never got mad at anything, nothing seemed to shake him. Even after... his life kept getting dragged through the dirt. Always kept looking for the bright, shining future in everything. So... I decided to take everything from him.\\

'''Dean:''' ''Do'' to me? What, weren't you listening? He thought he was ''better'' than me. Don't believe me? Look around. This big casino, this ''big'' colossal monument - think it was for some woman? No, ''all'' ego, ''all'' self-righteous-in-lights, ''[[PunctuatedForEmphasis fit him perfect]]''. Had to take him down a few pegs, bring him down to ''my'' level. "[[ArcWords Begin again?]]" [[DespairEventHorizon Some things you don't get up from...]] ''I'' was going to ''prove it.''

* ShoutOut: Given that Creator/ChrisAvellone had a lead role in Dead Money, it's probably fair to say that God has an awfully [[PlanescapeTorment "practical" outlook]] on things, although he is far less evil than Practical. Dog may be Paranoid. [[spoiler: You can also merge their personalities together, which is similar to how the Nameless One can deal with his numerous incarnations.]] Hell, Dog even has quite a few physical similarities to the Nameless One, mostly his dark skin, heavy scarring and relative muscle.

* BerserkButton: He cannot stand anyone who act like they're better than him and absolutely despises anyone who get the upper hand on him.

* TallPoppySyndrome: [[spoiler: The reason Dean swindled the resort's construction, set Vera up for a blackmail, and tore out Christine's vocal chords to replace with a simulacrum of Vera's: He was jealous of Sinclair's success and happiness.]] It's possible for him to develop this with the Courier, who is advised from bruising his ego (IE threatening/insulting/expressing resentment towards him).

* GoodOldFisticuffs: There are no weapons large enough in ''Dead Money'' for a Super Mutant to wield, therefore they have to resort to beating the hell out of Ghost People with their fists.



* MadeOfIron: Dog has badly wounded himself just to stay in control and neither personality acts like they care. Dog says that while he doesn't like the pain, he likes God even less. Meanwhile, the lengths Dog goes to in order to stay in control just makes God too angry to be bothered by the pain. After the possible SplitPersonalityMerge, the merged being is shocked at how wounded he is and says he needs to lie down for a bit.

* SuperpoweredEvilSide: In a way, Dog. God comments that Dog, while he is very dangerous and unstable, has a better grasp on their body and is therefore better in combat.

** God's ending greatly implies this. If you gain his favor beforehand, he shows this when you intervene in his pleading with Dog not to blow up the casino.
* TragicKeepsake: God does care for Dog, and if he is the only remaining personality at the end, he patches up all of the wounds and scars that Dog inflicted on himself in his attempts to keep God quiet, except for the name "DOG" that he carved onto his chest.

* TriggerPhrase: "Dog, back in the cage", which is used to change Dog into God. Subverted for the inverse, where you simply play a holotape of Elijah to awaken Dog.

Added DiffLines:

* CriticalExistenceFailure: If a Ghost Person's limb is crippled, it immediately tears off or [[LudicrousGibs explodes]] and kills them, regardless of how much health it has. Critical-hit oriented characters wielding the numerous limb-damage boosting weapons found in the Villa can often one-shot Ghost People with hits that do very little overall damage simply because they take out an arm.

* SpicyLatina: She was Latina when alive. She wears a very revealing red dress, acts/sings sultry and Dean Domino even notes her acting wasn`t great, but she had "other talents". She also [[spoiler:seduced Sinclair to steal the Madre`s treasure.]]

The villain of the ''Dead Money'' arc. He is the Brotherhood of Steel elder who was once Veronica's mentor and got most of the chapter killed at the Battle of Helios One. It is revealed that after that when he went missing he found the legendary lost Sierra Madre casino and has gone insane trying to access its vault ever since.

* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: [[BlatantLies Not really.]] You can see his futile attempts to justify the tremendous sacrifices he made is actually a desperate gambit to restore his own status in the Brotherhood, though arguably he still holds some ambitions of leading them along a better path, a goal he shares with Veronica.
* WeHaveReserves: [[{{Deconstruction}} Deconstructed.]] In the beginning Elijah had this mindset with regards to cracking into the Vault, but as he used more and more "reserves", the more insane and desperate he became.
** Not to mention the way he insisted the Brotherhood keep fighting the NCR, despite the fact that it was pretty obvious they ''didn't'' have
