** Also subverted; the climatic action sequence of '''Grave Covenant''' and most of the 'Mech combat sequences that don't involve Morgan Kell or Yorinaga Kurita in the Warrior Triology appear to have been actually gamed out under the tabletop rules. The '''Grave Covenant''' scene with Victor's ''Daishi'' and Renny Sanderlin's ''Penetrator'' is even in one of the scenario books.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: The fate of Clan Wolverine, as chronicled in ''Betrayal of Ideals''. Within Clan society, the story of their downfall, if it is discussed at all, is [[WrittenByTheWinners a heavily biased version]] in which blame for all atrocities is placed squarely on the Wolverines, and any hint that the clan may have survived beyond the level of individual escapees is heavily suppressed. From the Inner Sphere's perspective, the very existence of Clan Wolverine is known only in the context sudden appearance - and equally sudden disappearance - of the mysterious "Minnesota Tribe". Even on a meta level, what happened to the remnants of the Wolverines after their expulsion from Clan society remains unknown beyond the vaguest of hints at their survival until at least the late 3040s.

In addition, [=FASA=] licensed a number of video game series based on the universe. These, especially the MechWarrior series, turned out to be widely popular, and drew more people into the franchise.

* UnclePennybags: Chandrasekhar Kurita, a lesser known eccentric member of the Kurita house. He comes complete with an "Uncle" Honorific in his nickname, "Uncle Chandy". Whereas most men of the Kurita family were austere and militaristic, Chandrasekhar opted for a more hedonistic lifestyle. He still has a strong political and business acumen, as he is one of the wealthiest men in the Draconis Combine. Uncle Chandy's contribution to the Combine's well-being is acting as a sort of independent spymaster, with particular interest in opposing the [[EvilReactionary Black Dragon Society]] (which is to his favorite "nephew" Theodore's benefit since Teddy is quite progressive).

Having been a victim of politics several times (his sibmate changes the official report of the battle of Tukayyid, and then manages to steal his spot on the Trial of Bloodright), with the help of his bondsman, he manages to escape his Clan, goes to ComStar and gives them the Exodus Road, the path to the Clan homeworlds.]]

** Also a very "star-crossed lovers" example in Victor Steiner-Davion and Omi Kurita. They fall in love with each other at just about first sight when meeting on Outreach, but he's the heir to the Federated Commonwealth and she's the daughter of the Coordinator of the Draconis Combine and they're both too conscientious to just shirk their responsibilities in the name of romance... [[spoiler:They do get together in the end, although eventually an assassin sees to it that it doesn't last forever. One legacy of their romance remains: their son [[MeaningfulName Kitsune]] Kurita.]]

* FriendlyEnemy: Hanse Davion and Theodore Kurita get along much more swimmingly than their sons (initially) do at the 3051 Outreach Summit, since their historic family animosities have had time to simmer down with age.
