* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: While he has a well deserved reputation as a GeneralFailure his personal combat skills outweigh all the major faction leaders including [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pQ5BzNIH4FM Caesar.]] Of course, it helps that most of them use melee weapons and wear weak armor while he carries a decent gun.

** DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:House gives him around a 40% chance of doing this in his ending. Probably applies to the Independent route, too.]]

** If you're fighting for the NCR in the final battle, you can see Lanius [[FinalBossPreview chopping up a group of Rangers]] as you make his way to him.

*** In their defense, the bulk of the station was out on patrol. There were only three or four of them when the attack happened, and one of them was just a comm officer.

* FromNobodyToNightmare: To the Khans the NCR is an example of this. The republic started out as a small rural town that was constantly threatened and raided by them back in the original Fallout. By the time of New Vegas, the grandchildren of the very people that they bullied have driven their tribe to near extinction.

Interestingly, the best option for the Khans is to accept their loses, and leave the Mojave to do their own bit of nation building.

A group of NCR Snipers stationed at Camp [=McCarran=]. They are known in-universe for being total [[{{Badass}} Badasses.]] The group is comprised of Lieutenant Gorobets, Sergeant Bitter-Root, Corporal Sterling, Corporal Betsy, and the new kid, 10 of Spades. Craig Boone and Manny Vargas are former members, and both still wear their First Recon berets.

* {{Badass}}: Characters comment that only the best of NCR's standard military are trained as Rangers, and most of those ones won't make the cut anyway. Those that ''do'' will become renown and feared for their battle prowess.

* ActionGirl: Corporal Betsy



* {{Badass}}
** ActionGirl: Corporal Betsy
** BadassAdorable: 10 of Spades.
** BadassCreed: ''The last thing you never see.'' Boone himself (a former alumni) comments [[{{Understatement}} "It's pretty accurate, and so were we."]]
** BadassCrew: And HOW! This is so true NCR troopers take one look at Boone following you around and are openly envious a First Recon guy is your guardian angel. The only man that they couldn't kill was Joshua Graham, though this says more about [[MemeticBadass Graham]] than it does about them.
** BadassGrandpa: Corporal Sterling.
** HandicappedBadass: 10 of Spades, who wears coke-bottle glasses and has a severe stutter. He boasts that neither fact prevents him from kicking serious ass, and both his stats and his in-game actions prove he can back that statement up.
** CoolShades: Everyone but 10 of Spades, who just wears normal glasses.
** {{Determinator}}: Sterling was tortured to the point his hands and feet were fucked up. Instead of letting that slow him down, ''he escaped captivity by crawling away on his knees and elbows.''
** SpecsOfAwesome: 10 of Spades.
** SubmissiveBadass: Betsy. In fact, it's the best way to resolve the quest to get her therapy, via going drill sergeant on her and telling her she needs to be psychologically fit to fight or she's useless as a soldier. Gorobets wanted to do this, but due to being aware of his own chronic AFatherToHisMen tendencies he asks a third party (the Courier) to get her to seek help because he was afraid of straining relations with his subordinate by being a hardass.

* FantasyCounterpartCulture: Most obviously to the present day United States, but also (ironically enough) to [[TheRomanRepublic The Roman]] [[TheRomanEmpire Rome.]] Their overt values and flaws are like those of the modern US, while many of their strengths, weaknesses, strategies for winning over the Mojave (engage in high level diplomacy, present oneself as a "savior" against a greater threat while then moving in, and utilizing siege technology and logistics to win the long war) are right out of the Roman playbook that almost all others have followed since... [[DramaticIrony except for Caesar's Legion itself.]]
