** Curiously, the Hell's Horses are the only Clan that leans heavily on the Soldier side (though they still uphold strong Warrior traditions) because of their centuries-old philosophy of combined arms warfare which favors the effective, tried-and-true mixed deployment of infantry and armored vehicles with their [=BattleMechs=] operating as support units rather than front-line units. This is considered rather peculiar among the other Warrior-minded Clans because ever since the development of the [=BattleMech=], they thought it would obsolete the old combined arms approach to warfare and derided the Hell's Horses as being doomed to fail with their "obsolescent" philosophy. The aforementioned failure of Operation REVIVAL proved that the Hell's Horses were smart enough to uphold their philosophy, even though the Horses themselves did not participate in that mission.

* ProudWarriorRaceGuy: The Clans' warrior caste - in a half-twist, they are the ''enemies'' for once. The Invaders Clans who settled down in Inner Sphere are gradually changing to the Proud Soldier Race Guy sub-type, whatever they want to admit it or not, at least when dealing with the Inner Sphere "barbarians". The Hell's Horses are the only Clan that provides an rather interesting mix of ''both'' the Warrior and Soldier sub-types thanks to their centuries-old philosophy of combined arms warfare, whom the other Clans consider "hopelessly obsolete".

** On occasion you will also have 'Mechs like the [[http://www.sarna.net/wiki/Barghest Barghest]], which is only a step or two away from being a [[{{Zoids}} Zoid.]]

* StopWorshippingMe: If Jerome Blake could see what [=ComStar=] became after his death, his reaction would be this. He was a secular man, and Comstar took on its quasi-religious trappings under the guidance of Blake's successor, Conrad Toyama.

** Secular (relatively) [=ComStar=] and the ChurchMilitant Word of Blake hate each other as they believe that the other has perverted Blake's vision. [[spoiler:Jerome Blake [[StopWorshippingMe would have hated]] what [=ComStar=] had become when Conrad Toyama succeeded him, so post-schism [=ComStar=] is more his vision.]]

However, both of them acknowledged the risks inherent in the plan, risks that slowly came to reality with the Jihad.[[/note]]]]

** A notable example is Morgan Kell and Morgan Hassek-Davion. Both have similar physiques and appearances (Kell has dark hair while Hassek-Davion has red hair, but both wear it long), both are older warriors during the time of the Clan Invasion, both are powerful and influential leaders (Morgan Kell of the Kell Hounds mercenary unit, Morgan Hassek-Davion the Marshall of Armies for the Federated Commonwealth), both are on the same side (The Kells have historically been fanatically loyal to House Steiner, despite being mercenaries, Morgan Hassek-Davion is personally loyal to Hanse Davion, who's married to Melissa Steiner, and transfers that loyalty to their son Victor), and they tend to crop up in stories together. A character simply talking about "Morgan" may cause the reader to pause while they figure out ''which'' "Morgan".
