* TheDreaded: A semi-meta example would be vault dwellers and their immediate descendents. While most of them tend to be ordinary people, all four of the game's main series involves either a vault dweller or the descendent of one embarking on a simple but personal quest and ending up having major, historical impact on the entire political and social power balance in the wastes, often completely destroying anything that gets in their way. Any GenreSavvy individual in-universe would be well-served to avoid pissing off any 'vault dweller' they encounter, especially if said individual seems particularly determined to complete a personal quest.

* FlawedPrototype: The T-45 Series of PoweredArmor. Rushed into production and service, it burned through energy cells like popcorn, and was overall ungainly to use. Only later versions, like the T-45D, included a proper fusion cell for extended use, and was soon rendered obsolete anyway by the T-51B, which had more responsive actuators and a fusion cell powerplant as part of the design from the start.

* SovietSuperscience: Surprisingly [[InvertedTrope inverted]]. Based upon what precious little we've seen of Chinese Pre-War technology from the [[UnreliableNarrator highly questionable]] Operation: Anchorage [[spoiler:and Captain Zao's missile sub]], it wasn't the communists who had the advanced technology. While the Chinese were beginning to develop stealth suits by 2077, they otherwise utilize largely real world technology. The US, by comparison, had developed and deployed three generations of PowerArmor (the T-45, T-51 and T-60), laser and early generation plasma weaponry, publicly available intelligent domestic robots (Mr. Handy's and Protectrons), several types of man-sized combat robots (Mr. Gutsy's, Sentry Drones and Assaultrons) and was even preparing to deploy building sized, nuke-flinging, laser-visioned war robots (Liberty Prime).

* SuperPrototype: There's the [=T-60=] Series of PoweredArmor, which was invented ''just'' before the Great War as an upgrade of the T-45, and was ultimately intended to replace the T-51. It only saw limited deployment by the U.S. military, and despite overall mechanical superiority to the T-51B, the T-60 suffered from both a comparative cost of resources and lack of agility in battle, leaving the T-51B as the best Pre-War Power Armor series.

* DisasterDemocracy: The Enclave, the supposed "legitimate" successor to the pre-war American government. They present themselves as a bastion of American freedom and democracy, but they're really not much more than a tyrannical dictatorship hell-bent on committing genocide against anyone they deem a "mutant." The NCR is a more noble example - they're well-meaning and genuinely interested in helping the people of the wasteland, but are constantly bogged down by bureaucracy and red tape, and their expansionist policies make them unpopular with those who value their independence.
