** Similarly, with ''Enemy Within'', try getting a Sniper with the code-name of "[[Comics/XMen Cyclops]]", especially if he's made the first recipient of mutagenic enhancements. Same goes for [[Series/HomeImprovement Tom Taylor]] if made a MEC trooper. "More power" indeed.

*** And then a Floater pops up in the snipers face....and he [[EpicFail basically flips out and shoots a car]]. It's then popped off him by the same heavy.

** Training Roulette. Of ''course'' Michael "Crater" Bay ends up with [[StuffBlowingUp Grenadier]], [[SerialEsclalation Deep Pockets]], [[NoKillLikeOverkill and Rocketeer]].

** Or any time a soldier or alien decides to randomly smash a window when they don't need to. For example, smashing a skylight they happen to be hiding near to shoot at an enemy on the same roof, sometimes just a few feet away.

** "Operation Bloody Hymn". First covert ops missions. At least 10 exalt heavies with rocket launchers. Multiple rocketeer heavies. [[StuffBlowingUp someone's coming back in a matchbox"]].

*** Another "Operation Lazy Justice". Carefree use of explosives to bypass doors ruins chance to capture floater


Added DiffLines:

** "Operation Lone Mother". This can only end well.

* Any time a Muton successfully intimidates a XCOM soldier, only to promptly get shot and killed by that very same panicked soldier.
** Bonus points if the soldier gets a promotion from that kill. "You freaked out and made a totally blindshot that just happened to hit a hostile? Welcome to the higher ranks!"
** Isn't it obvious? They get promoted because Central clearly sees their potential. If they can make a panicked, blind shot that kills a motherfucking MUTON, [[FridgeBrilliance what can they do when they get some actual training?]]

** FridgeBrilliance. [[TruthInTelevision A lot of actual military nicknames and callsigns end up working that way.]] Just ask pilots like Captain Douglas S. "Bubbles" Champagne and Captain Chip "Spider" Webb.

** YMMV: to some, that [[DissonantSerenity calm voice]] after the panicked one is [[CreepyMonotone creepy as hell.]]

* An ''[[BlackComedy extremely grim]]'' example: 'DeaderThanDisco' is a possible BondOneLiner for a soldier to spout upon killing a hostile. Disco is available as a random nickname for a Heavy. Should poor Disco have previously met an untimely end when someone delivers that line... mostly amusing when one imagines the [[CrossesTheLineTwice range of]] [[DudeNotFunny possible]] [[TooSoon reactions]] from any squadmates within earshot. For extra black comedy, it is entirely possible for an operative to say that line during the ''exact same mission'' Disco just of KIA on.
