* BearsAreBadNews - The Bulrathi are large ursine beings obsessed with hand-to-hand (or paw) combat, frequently going into battle without weapons. They frequently charge into battle on all fours, as they know that this tends to throw off most sentient beings who can't fathom another sentient being attacking on all fours.

Misuse. It's Genre Savvy, not just "savvy".
* ArmorIsUseless - most heavy infantry weapons (especially those used during the war) can quite easily punch through even the toughest PoweredArmor. For most use, though, regular PoweredArmor is usually pretty good about stopping a plasma shot or two. Kay, though, manages to kill a soldier wearing PoweredArmor with a single plasma pistol shot by aiming at tiny slits between armor plates, cooking the soldier in his own shell. His GenreSavvy partner, realizing the skill it takes to do that, doesn't even try going for his gun and runs away, only to [[CombatPragmatist throw a stun grenade through the hatch]].
