* VillainProtagonist: If you don't find the idea of playing as TheHero appealing, you don't have to be one; you can act like the biggest asshole ever to walk the wastes instead. Even more so than the evil versions of the Vault Dweller, Chosen One, Lone Wanderer, and Sole Survivor, as the main story at least pitted them against monsters who were planning to destroy most of the remaining human race. However, the Courier can hook up with the Legion to bring a nation of crucifying, rapist slavers to power, throw New Vegas into absolute anarchy and chaos with help from (but much to the regret of) Yes Man, join forces with Father Elijah and turn the Mojave in a completely uninhabitable, poisonous wasteland, and utterly obliterate several factions in horrible ways ForTheEvulz.

Added DiffLines:

* AffablyEvil: Can be one in a few different ways; a Legion-aligned Courier with good Karma for example, or a (very) Evil Courier who always picks the more polite dialogue choices.

Added DiffLines:

* 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]].

* OutsideContextVillain: To either the NCR or the Legion, if you don't pick their side. The Courier's quest has nothing directly to do with the war over the Hoover Dam, and they were a complete unknown before the events of the game. You can start meddling with their business from the moment you reach either Nipton or the NCR Correction Facility, and by the time you reach The Strip, whichever side you didn't pick (if not both) realizes that you're a big enough threat to warrant ''hit squads'' constantly sent after you.

Added DiffLines:

**Not to mention the fact that if you take the perks literally, by the end of the game the Courier can absorb strength from sunlight a la Superman ("Solar Powered"), lace their bones with metal ("Adamantium Skeleton"), regenerate damage while irradiated ("Rad Child"), [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking and inexplicably repair equipment with non-matching parts]] ("Jury Rigging").

The Courier was just [[UnluckyEverydude a regular schmuck]] trying to make a living delivering packages before being ambushed by Benny and several Great Khans while delivering a ''particular'' package: a Platinum Chip. He/she takes two shots to the head but somehow manages to survive. The story is driven by the Courier's attempts to understand the meaning behind the attack and the significance of the Platinum Chip. Ultimately, the Courier gets to decide the future of the entire Mojave wasteland.
