* AmusingInjuries: Taking the Cursed disadvantage causes this with a character's magic. Rule wise it causes glitches to happen more often when casting magic and causing you to make dice rolls for otherwise automatic successes. An example they give is summoning a water spirit can set your clothes on fire and glitching a casting of Improved Reflexes results in your character tripping over their shoelaces.

* OurDragonsAreDiffferent: They're far-and-away the most powerful beings in the game, and they've adapted quite well to the modern world. Their hordes often include real estate and stocks and bonds, and several of them head corporations and/or governments.

** For those wondering: [[EldritchAbomination The Horrors]] that did get through have been seen near the start of the Badlands in the Eastern part of the state, Billings is [[OpenSecret the last site of free trade in the world]], the [[KnightsTemplar Mystic Crusaders]] are actively seeking Thor's Hammer, minor dragons exist all over Yellowstone, Great Falls AFB, as in "We fire the 500 intercontinental ballistic missiles laid all over Montana from here!" is under the control of Lofwyr through bartering with the NAN and, to make it absolutely perfectly crappy, if you're Scandinavian you just might express [[BodyHorror UGE]] by becoming either an Aesir (a literal angel, forsaking your physical body to ascent to the Astral Plane) or, [[AndIMustScream A Frost Giant! Like Thrym! Which means]] [[WeaksauceWeakness phenomenal cosmic power, magical abilities, 12' feet tall and double-digit body and strength stats!... and an allergy to anything over freezing point]]. To make the point: SEATTLE IS PARADISE!

* AnAxeToGrind: The combat axe is a staple melee weapon for the franchise; it's significantly less accurate than the katana, but has greater reach, damage, and armor penetration, while being more expensive, restricted, and conspicuous. It's also a cheaper alternative to the [[{{BSF}} claymore]] which beats it in terms of accuracy and armor penetration.

* FantasticGhetto: Segregated neighborhoods, by choice and compulsion both, very much exist in the world of Shadowrun. Orks and Trolls most often get the short end of the stick in this regard. Notable examples include Orkland in the Bay Area; Yomi Island in Japan, serving as an internment camp for all Japanese metahumans, before being abandoned and left to to {{Wendigo}} and other [[TheVirus HMHVV]] infectees; and the Seattle Underground, settled by Orks and Trolls following anti-metahuman pogroms.



** Elves against most everybody, humans against orks and trolls (though groups like Humanis Policlub will extend it to every metahuman type), Japanese, Native Americans, Non-Native Americans, and Aztlaners at each other's throats, and so on. Elves really tend to be the punching bag of everyone, though they don't usually return the racism - elven-ruled racist nations have effectively imploded in 4e, to the point where Tír Tairngire is now run collectively by a Great Dragon and an ork.

Right up to the point where after you've done their dirty work, they [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness attempt to betray you]] and you either die, flee or reveal that you've done your homework, know where they live and currently have someone with a sniper rifle trained on the head of [[AndYourLittleDogToo their little dog, too.]]

** Not just everything, but ''everyone''. Unless you live in a total deadzone, you're likely to have at least a basic commlink. A lot of high-security places ''require'' you to have one. It wasn't all that different in 2nd and 3rd, actually; most people were hooked into the net one way or another.

* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: The way most runners prefer things. Not only deckers, but pretty much every runner goes by street names, because a) they sound cool (for the pink mohawk crowd) and b) going by your real name is somewhat detrimental to leading a double-life of profitable crime (for the black trenchcoats).
