* IdiotHero: {{Deconstructed|Trope}}. A character with a low intelligence score will be locked out of 90% of the game's quests because most people will simply see you for the imbecile you are and not give you the time of day. Plus many of the people you do help [[NiceJobBreakingItHero will end up being screwed by your poorly conceived, ham-fisted efforts]].

* AmbitionIsEvil: Inverted with Sherry from the Skulz gang. She's the only member who thinks she has opportunities beyond her gang, and you could convince her to become a chef for the Crash House hotel.


Added DiffLines:

* EngineeredPublicConfession: You take down Gizmo this way by either pretending to scheming with him about killing the mayor whilst wearing a wire, or by planting a bug on his desk.


Added DiffLines:

* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Sherry, from the Skulz gang. She will warn you not to mess with them, but she will also have pleasant conversations with you if you're polite to her. She tells you that she sees the other members as family, which is why it's hard for her to leave. You can convince her to leave the gang. After a few days, she does it and becomes the Crash House's chef. She does a full HeelFaceTurn when you ask her testify against her former gang.

* ArmorPiercingAttack: If either you or an enemy rolls a critical, the attack will occasionally blow through armor (on top of the added bonus damage criticals deal.)
* AssholeVictim: Decker may be an evil crime boss, but the people he wants you to remove aren't angels themselves. They include Darren Hightower, the leader of the Water Merchants who use their water supply as an economic weapon, and Jain, a member of the [[ReligionOfEvil Unity]].

* AKA47: Though a lot of weapons are fictional, some of them do have real life counterparts.
** The 9mm Mauser is, of course, a Mauser C96.
** The "Rockwell CZ53 Personal Minigun" is based off of the GE M134 Minigun.
** The "Rockwell BigBazooka Rocket Launcher" is an M47 Dragon missile launcher complete with SU-36/P daysight tracker, with an exaggerated bazooka-like muzzle and no bipod.

* AbsurdlySpaciousSewer: The sewers in Necropolis are this, and you even encounter patrol of ghouls living down there.

* CombatDiplomacyStealth: Generally speaking there are three ways to accomplish anything. You can just use plain violence, go with diplomacy, or you could steal something. This includes the final boss: you could convince him he's wrong and that he needs to self-destruct, you could just shoot him, or you could sneak into the basement and set off his self-destruct nuke. The three pre-set character builds are designed around this: A musclebound meathead with low intelligence, a Russian FemmeFatale who's good at spy stuff, and a charismatic smooth talker who would be what the pre-war world called a "Lawyer".

''Fallout'' (1997), the first game in the [[VideoGame/{{Fallout}} eponymous]] series. It is the most straightforward and unarguably true to the original vision.

* ManualLeaderAIParty: The recruitable party members allow you to customize how close or far they stay from you, and how to use their weapons.
** ArtificialStupidity: Unfortunately, there's no way to nudge them out of the way until the sequel game, meaning they can box you into a corner in more crowded areas and refuse to budge, necessitating a reload if you don't want to shoot your way out. Mods like the ''Fallout Fixt'' collection have thankfully fixed this, so it's finally possible to keep [[TeamPet Dogmeat]] alive in the Mariposa Military Base.
* MegatonPunch: Combining the power fist (or, indeed a high enough Unarmed skill) with the Bloody Mess trait results in lierally having the power to punch massive holes in enemies.

* PlasmaCannon: Two examples can be found among the game's energy weapons.



* RocksFallEveryoneDies: Pissing off the Overseer will result in him pulling out a pair of plasma gatlings from his chair and one-shotting you.

to:

* RayGun: The most powerful weapons in the game are these. Called 'Energy Weapons' in game, they are very rare to obtain, or even ''find'' early on, so there is a definite temptation to [[DumpStat ignore their skill stats]]... but by the endgame [[LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards they easily outpace standard firearms in all areas]].

* SnipeHunt: Trying to join the Brotherhood of Steel will have them send you on a mission to retrieve something from the Glow, a highly irradiated death zone. Upon accepting the mission, one of the door guards mentions that they usually just give the mission out to get rid of people wandering in and wanting to join. If you ''do'' complete the mission, though, they make you an initiate anyway.

* LinearWarriorsQuadraticWizards: Small Guns, Melee Weapons, and Unarmed could be seen as analogues for a "Warrior", because they're common and will carry you through the game. Big Guns and Energy Weapons, on the other hand, are much less common yet they are superior to the other weapons by the endgame (Big Guns can deal high damage to multiple targets, and Energy Weapons have the highest damage per shot).
