** Doc Mitchell's dialogue at the start of the game implies that your face was actually a mess, and he did some pretty damn impressive reconstructive surgery. Mainly this serves as a HandWave for the player customizing the character's appearance.

* AntiHero: A likely outcome for most players who don't set out to be evil but also aren't careful to go for the GoldenEnding, especially if they neglect non-combat skills like Speech that are often the key to peacefully resolving conflicts. This kind of Courier is ''generally'' a nice guy who is willing to help folks out unless there's a compelling reason not to, but [[KleptomaniacHero he might occasionally steal everything that's not nailed down]] and/or [[MurderIsTheBestSolution default to violence]] instead of exploring non-violent solutions.

* BadassInANiceSuit: The Courier can find formal attire or pre-war business suits for him to wear. [[RealityEnsues Since those outfits offer no protection whatsoever]], [[SelfImposedChallenge then this trope is all the more justified]].

* ReallyGetsAround: Most notably with the Black Widow perk; Lady Killer, Cherchez La Femme, and Confirmed Bachelor have multiple romance options too, but not enough to be really called "promiscuous" unless you [[GuideDangIt go out of your way to find everyone who can possibly be slept with]] or frequent prostitutes.

* 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]]
