* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Activating Project Purity]] in the original game. If you have ''Broken Steel'', you can get one of your radiation-immune party members to do it with Fawkes doing it willingly and Charon or LR-8 having to be convinced as it's not their job to [[spoiler:push buttons]]. Regardless, the programmers and writers didn't make a new ending so having someone else do it has Creator/RonPerlman bitching at you for wimping out of your destiny. If you ''do'' choose to do it all you end up with is a 2 week coma,
[[spoiler:unlike your dad...]]

* XMeetsY: The game has been described as ''[[VideoGame/TheElderscrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]]'' with guns. Depending on [[WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation who]] you talk to, ''[[TropesAreNotBad this is not necessarily a bad thing]]''.

** The presence of the Brotherhood of Steel, and a different interpretation of their organization: Here, there's actually ''two'' different Brotherhood factions, both of which can occasionally be seen [[CivilWar skirmishing with each other]].
*** The main faction of the Brotherhood, led by [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Elder]] [[CoolOldGuy Lyons]], who has [[ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight discarded most of the Codex]], directly recruiting from the locals and focusing more on protecting the innocent citizens of the [[DeathWorld Capital Wasteland]] from the [[DumbMuscle Super]] [[TheVirus Mutants]] rather than just gathering technology - which often leads to them getting [[IronButtMonkey beaten up a lot]]. They're still [[FantasticRacism racist]] towards Ghouls, [[KickTheDog though]].
*** A smaller [[RenegadeSplinterFaction splinter faction]], led by [[AntiHero Protector Casdin]], called the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Brotherhood Outcasts"]]. They [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere left Lyons' Brotherhood]] because of him [[AntiMutiny abandoning most of the Brotherhood's Codex]], and focus on gathering Pre-War tech while defending themselves from the local hostiles - [[Irony making them]] the ''most'' like the original [[VideoGame/Fallout1 Fallout 1]]-era Brotherhood of Steel. Despite their [[AntiHero Anti-Hero]] tendencies, they get several [[NotSoDifferent Not So Different]] moments between them and Lyons' Brotherhood, and [[LawfulNeutral mostly just like to be left alone]]. They get [[ADayInTheLimelight more attention]] in the ''Operation: Anchorage!'' DLC.

Added DiffLines:

* OncePerEpisode: Despite the numerous difference, numerous elements from previous ''Fallout'' games still return in the third entry.
** The protagonist gets a mangy CanineCompanion with pointed ears, a la ''Film/MadMax2'', who they name Dogmeat.
** Creator/RonPerlman intones the series ArcWords: "War. War never changes."
** A new [[IconicOutfit Iconic Outfit]] ([[TheApunkalypse the armored Vault 101 jumpsuit ]]) and model of [[PoweredArmor Power Armor]] (the T-45) make their first appearances.
** A [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Super]] [[SuperSoldier Mutant]] companion: [[GeniusBruiser Fawkes]], a Super Mutant [[DefectorFromDecadence Defector From Decadence]] [[TokenHeroicOrc who managed to hold onto his sanity]], and is [[NiceGuy incredibly friendly]], [[HiddenDepths surprisingly]] [[WarriorPoet intelligent]], [[TheAntiNihilist contains a Zen outlook on life]], and ''extraordinarily'' [[OneManArmy dangerous]].
** A [[OurZombiesAreDifferent Ghoul]] companion: [[BlueAndOrangeMorality Charon]], a [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed Ghoul mercenary]] that is [[MyMasterRightOrWrong unswervingly loyal to whoever owns his current contract]]. Outside of that, however, he's quite the [[NiceGuy friendly fellow]].
** A [[RobotBuddy robotic]] companion: [[DrillSergeantNasty Sergeant RL-3]], a Pre-War [[KillerRobot Mr. Gutsy]] that the [[PlayerCharacter Lone Wanderer]] can purchase and have fight at their side - he just does it [[LargeHam very]] loudly.
** A [[TheOrder Brotherhood of Steel]] companion: [[TheBigGuy Star]] [[BadassGrandma Paladin]] [[CoolOldLady Cross]], the [[TheAce highest-ranking member]] of the Brotherhood's Paladins and Elder Lyons' personal bodyguard. She was turned into a {{Cyborg}} after [[WeCanRebuildHim getting injured in battle]] years ago, and can help the Lone Wanderer in battle.

** ''The Pitt'' makes damn sure you enter it with nothing but a slave outfit and maybe a concealed weapon. If you wear the slave outfit the slavers simply confiscate everything in your inventory, and if you try to brute force your way through the front gate you get knocked out and looted by raiders.

Added DiffLines:

* CutsceneIncompetence: In The Pitt, If you try and brute-force your way through the city's main gate, you get treated to a cutscene where a trio of raiders beats you unconscious, in order to force you into [[spoiler:becoming a slave]]. It's likely that many players attempting the DLC's main quest are at a high enough level, and have good enough weaponry, to make short work of raiders by the time they arrive.

** The Enclave. They're [[ANaziByAnyOtherName essentially Nazi's]], but their goal to restore America and humanity is respectable though their methods are certainly not.
