** Another example, a female sniper with the last name [[Franchise/StarCraft Kerrigan.]] Her handle once she reached Sergeant? ''Blades''. To top it off, she turned out to be the only soldier to have psi-abilities in that playthrough.

* Thin Men are annoying, especially in Council missions, in which they decide to drop out of the sky at random in a perfect spot to kill your hostage. However, if you know they're coming, you can just order all your soldiers to go on Overwatch and when the [[SlenderManMythos Slender-wannabe]] drops down, acting all high and mighty, [[NoKillLikeOverkill all your soldiers shoot him at once]]. [[NightmareRetardant So much for scary infiltrating aliens.]]

* When you secure Annette Durand from the convoy, she initially tries to run but is stopped by a warning shot. A warning shot that always uses ''[[SoLastSeason bullets]]''. Keep in mind, by this point, your troops are most likely carrying laser or plasma rifles, and your MEC, who can be carrying a railgun or particle rifle, can still be the one to fire the shot.

** And another- [[{{Series/Highlander}} Duncan MacLeod]]. BadAss, right? Wrong. Said squaddie panicked the very first time he was shot at and [[BlackComedy promptly ran directly into a massive Overwatch crossfire.]] Another is [[Film/{{MIB}} James Edwards]]. Evidently even the Men In Black are getting in on protecting the earth. He was also randomly generated as black and an Assault.
