[[note]]Although since you have to kill ''[[ThatOneBoss Rawr]]'' to get his claw (and thus craft the weapon itself), if you are powerful enough to obtain this unique Deathclaw Glove in the first place, chances are, you don't need a companion at all.[[/note]]

** The kicker ? "Skilled" is [[GoodBadBugs bugged]] in that, should you select the trait during character creation and then select it ''again'' if you decide to modify your character before leaving the tutorial area, ''you will get its benefits twice while the -10% to experience gain will not stack'', meaning you can get ''10 points to EVERY skill'' before you even reach level 2. And since the ''Old World Blues'' DLC allows you to change your traits once more, you can exploit this to get ''15'' bonus points to every skill while suffering from the trait's malus only ''once''.

* MuggingTheMonster: Freeside Thugs bring this trope to [[SuicidalOverconfidence untold heights of absurdity.]]absurdity]]. Should you decide to make the Lucky 38 your base of operations and walk out of the city instead of fast-travelling on a daily basis, you can expect the roads of Freeside to be covered in battered corpses ''very'' quickly. And even if you decide to ignore the unarmored nutcases going at your power-armored person with their pool cues and tire irons, the nearby [[KillerRobot Securitrons]], the [[NeighbourhoodFriendlyGangsters Kings]] and your optional [[HyperCompetentSidekick companions]] certainly [[CurbstompBattle won't]].

* MoreDakka: The iconic minigun, of course, but also the light machine gun, the assault carbine (which can burn through its 24-round magazine in less than three seconds), and the many variations on the theme of submachine gun. Old World Blues includes the K9000, a Cyberdog Gatling Gun that fires magnum rounds.

* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: According to some Legion NPC's, NCR troops are on the average quite lacking in marksmanship, while at least one NCR character mentions that new troops are often receiving less than a month's training before being sent to the Mojave. Could go a long way to explaining why a military made up primarily of riflemen is having such a hard time against an opponent that primarily issues melee weapons to its front-line troops.

That and the Legion's body armor being able to eat up a lot of the damage from a service rifle.

* KinkySpanking: An event when you first enter the area in front of the Ultra Luxe has three female NCR soldiers drunk and dancing in the fountain. When a soldier comes along to try and persuade them to stop, they start demanding that he spank them for their conduct, before running into a nearby club.

* InternalHomage: Vault 34 works as one to The Glow in the original Fallout. It's even possible to end up there on a quest from the Brotherhood of Steel.

* [[ItIsPronouncedTroPAY It Is Pronounced KAI-sarr]]/InsistentTerminology: Caesar's Legion uses the Latin pronunciations, while the NCR troops typically use anglicized pronunciations.
** In fact, how a character pronounces Caesar is a pretty good indication of how much respect they have for him. Joshua Graham calls him See-ser when you meet him in the Honest Hearts DLC, though J.E. Sawyer states that this has more to do with him being educated enough to have known of the actual Caesar before meeting Edward unlike the other Legionnaires.
** Strangely enough though, Marcus uses the Latin pronunciation.

pronunciations. In fact, how a character pronounces Caesar is a pretty good indication of how much respect they have for him. Joshua Graham calls him See-ser when you meet him Graham, for instance, ''should'' know better - after all, he was in the Honest Hearts DLC, though J.E. Sawyer states that this has more to do with him being educated enough to have known of Legion since the actual Caesar before meeting Edward unlike beginning - but due to the other Legionnaires.
circumstances of his departure, he intentionally pronounces Caesar's name incorrectly.
** Strangely enough though, Marcus uses the Latin pronunciation. Follows-Chalk does as well, which is likely because he first heard the name from Graham when he was still with the Legion.

* JerkassVictim: Private Crenshaw considers himself a happy prankster... who thinks a prank consisting of secretly pulling the pin from someone's grenade while they're carrying it is ''hilarious'', rather than cold-blooded murder. So when you pull that prank on him (as part of a Legion quest), you don't have to feel too bad.
** Quite a few if not all of Nipton's population were criminals, murderers and otherwise quite degenerate people. Whether they deserved what the Legion did to them is arguable, though.

** The standard "neutral" response to a quest offer(that is, keeping it open for you to do later without failing it) is usually something like "I'll think about it". When Vulpes asks you to do a very simple quest(go to Vault 21 and get the Omertas away from an informant), he'll say "I don't see what there is to think about" if you give him that answer.

* KatanasAreJustBetter: If you get the Gun Runners' Arsenal DLC, you can have a Katana as a melee weapon. Its got decent attack power, but it also attacks ludicrously fast, has a high crit multiplier, and a limb damage multiplier, effectively turning you into an honorable Japanese meat grinder. Add in the Authentic Blade and Balanced Grip weapon mods and you'll be decapitating everything in less than 5 seconds. Its [=VATS=] special is "[[ShoutOut Unlabored]] [[VideoGame/NinjaGaiden Flawlessness]]", dealing 250% damage and usually aims at the head.
