** You can take the trait Logan's Loophole, which invokes this by halting level gains at 30. However, you can wait until level 29, get a reevaluation from the Sink's Auto-Doc (the trait requires the DLC to take anyway), and get rid of it at the cost of chem addiction immunity, but who says no to 20 levels?

** The components needed to craft stimpacks and super stimpacks are the same ones used in ''Fallout 2'' if you asked Myron to make them for you.

** The components needed to craft stimpacks and super stimpacks are the same ones used in ''Fallout 2'' if you asked Myron to make them for you. Further, the components needed to craft Rocket are based on the ones needed to make Ultrajet in ''Fallout 3''; a cleaning agent (Detergent/Abraxo) and a sweetener (Nuka Cola/Sugar Bombs).

* LostForever: While it has improved a lot since launch, the game is still quite unstable, and odd glitches may still manifest that will prevent even the most able player from obtaining unique items and party members.
** Averted when it comes to the guns, especially the unique Gun Runner's Arsenal DLC guns. If you kill the Van Graafs, for example, their inventory will appear in the menu for the un-killable Vendortron at the Gun Runners.
** Anything the player doesn't take out with them from the Sierra Madre in ''Dead Money'' is lost forever once the player leaves, as there's no way to get back (as pointed out by the game itself just before you try to use the exit gate). The other DLC areas are exempt from this, as the player can return whenever they want to grab what they missed the first time around. ''Honest Hearts'' in particular they took care to avoid this with - since the people you can trade with are gone if you ever return to Zion Valley, the new stuff added in the expansion is added to the inventories of most merchants in the Mojave from the second you finish it.
** There are a few "safehouse" locations around the Wasteland that you can get access to. They universally have some of that faction's signature armor and equipment, but nothing invaluable. With one exception -- the Lucky Shades, which raise Luck by 1, await you in the Legion Safehouse. If you kill the person who gives you the key, you can never get them without console commands on the PC.

** You can actually point this out to Benny. He says that the irony isn't lost on him.

** Marcus. He survived the events of Fallout, that is the complete destruction of the Master's Army. Then, he survived a ''three day'' fight with a Brotherhood Paladin and became friends with the man. A group of refugees joins him and the Paladin to form the town Broken Hills, which later becomes deserted. Canonically, Marcus joined the Chosen One on the assault on the Enclave's offshore oil-rig, going toe-to-toe with the infamous Frank Horrigan. During the events of Fallout 2, you can take him to a clinic in Vault City, where the doctor will remove "20 7.62mm, 40 .44 magnum JHP, 40 .44 magnum FMJ, 50 5mm JHP, 10 .45 caliber, 24 10mm JHP, 50 .223 FMJ, and 20 9mm ball" rounds ''from his body''. Careful count will reveal over '''254 seperate rounds removed'''. He then lives through a coup at Black Mountain against his leadership, very good considering Tabitha's murderous tendencies. ''40 years'' later, he is leading a group of super mutants in Jacobstown, and seems to be more powerful then ever. You just can't kill Marcus. Oh, and he's voiced by [[Creator/MichaelDorn Worf]].

* KaizoTrap: In the House and Independent ending pathes, [[spoiler: you end up picking a fight with [=NCR=]'s General Oliver after you defeat Legate Lanius]]. Your Securitron allies will gun him down easily, ''but'' they often fail to do so before his 5 Veteran Ranger EliteMooks armed with the best guns in the game mow down your own character.

** Oh, you thought the Legendary Deathclaw was bad? The Lonesome Road add-on introduces Rawr, the most powerful naturally-occuring creature in the game, who can [[OneHitKill tear apart most Level 50 characters even with amazing Endurance]]. You can kill him instantly with a quick finger by [[GuideDangIt scaring him with a flare gun and blowing up the warhead in the cavern above him]], but even that is a risky maneuver.

* TheJuggernaut: Deathclaws. [[OhCrap Deathclaw Matriarchs]]. [[FromBadToWorse Deathclaw Alpha Males]]. [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast The Legendary Deathclaw.]] Remember the old description of The Baron of Hell in Doom? ''"Tough as a dump truck and nearly as big, these Goliaths are the worst things on two legs since Tyrannosaurus rex."'' This perfectly describes an ordinary deathclaw, to say nothing of the alphas, matriarchs and the legendary one.

* IdiotBall: Caesar is holding one. He knows that his camp at Fortification Hill is sitting on top of a bunker protected by doors that can't be drilled or blasted open. He knows said doors bear the logo of the Lucky 38 and thus must be relevant to Mr. House's interests in some way. He knows the Platinum Chip he just confiscated from Benny fits the disc-shaped console near the doors and suspects it will open them. What does he do? Why, he waits for the Courier to finally decide to make his way to Fortification Hill, hands the Platinum Chip to the Courier when the man might very well have single-handedly destroyed all of his operations west of the Dam by this point (if you want some really funny dialogue, ''do this''), and trust him to deal with whatever is inside the bunker completely unmolested, confident that the Courier will do as asked and destroy it. You even get to keep the chip. Brilliant! The best part is, the Courier doesn't even have to report to Caesar after he is done inside the bunker, and can just walk out of the fortress completely unmolested by the guards! Caesar might be an extremely intelligent person lore-wise, but he sure displays a complete lack of common sense here.
