* VagueAge: While the first two ''Fallout'' games let you set your age, and the third game set you as a teenager/young adult, this game is very vague. There's a hint you're in your 30s-40s[[note]]Optional dialogue where you could be worried about fathering the 17-year old Lonesome Drifter means you're probably mid-to-late 30s at the youngest[[/note]], but it's only a hint. The ability to customize your character's facial appearance only adds to the ambiguity; an Age slider during character creation lets you change how old your character ''looks'', but there's no option to decide how old they actually are.

* AmnesiacHero: Completely averted. Due to the wealth of questions about the NCR, Caesar's Legion, and a whole host of other things, fans speculated that the two bullets the Courier took to the head scrambled their memory. [[WordOfGod JE Sawyer]] eventually came out and said that the Courier isn't an amnesiac and that all the questions are for the player's benefit.

[[WordOfGod JE Sawyer]] eventually came out and said that the Courier isn't an amnesiac and that all the questions are for the player's benefit. Indeed, from studying the wording of the questions, it is evident that the Courier are familiar with the different organisations, and is actually asking the people they meet about their opinions on them.



** You survived being shot in the head twice and then being buried.

* TisOnlyABulletInTheBrain: Shot in the head at close range, ''twice'', and buried in a shallow grave at the very beginning of the game. Naturally, being the PlayerCharacter, they get better, though some quick work on the part of an escort robot and the local doctor, along with being the ''Fallout'' universe, could affect the outcome. [[note]] On a meta level, it's assured the Courier would survive. Even with a max Guns skill (which Benny doesn't have), it's impossible to kill even an Endurance-1 Courier with two head shots.[[/note]]

** Was this BEFORE the game started even by virtue of being a Courier, a job that requires traveling through... well, [[CrapsackWorld the world of Fallout]] on a regular basis.

** The Lone Wanderer was 19 when he left the Vault and as such had no knowledge of the world since they lived their entire life in the Vault; the Courier's age is unknown but it's hinted you're in your 30s at least, and you were born in the wasteland and are a seasoned explorer.

* HeroicSeductress: Both genders can be this trope. With high enough Speech, Charisma, and/or proper perks, you can resolve a lot of conflicts with flirtation or flat out sex.

** There's a mod to continue after the ending that exists on the Fallout New Vegas Nexus. Apparently, the developer is planning to implement more story AFTER the ending.

* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: The same way as Ulysses after completing ''Lonesome Road''. Doubly so, you not only get a duplicate of Ulysses' duster, but you also get your own based on your end faction choice as a gift from Ulysses.
