* PersonaNonGrata: You, and by extension your father, in Vault 101 after you leave during the Radroach attack when you were 19. Amata only lets you back when she begs for help as the civil war between those who support and those who oppose the Overseer and his oppressive reign. One the quest is over your back to being banned because you staying there would lead to the collapse of the Vault. At least you can sabotage the water chip and force everyone else out.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: One quest has you retrieve 30 Nuka-Cola Quantums for Sierra Petrovita, who lives alone in the wilderness with her friend Ronald Laren, [[JustFriends whose lust for her she is oblivious to]]. Ronald offers to pay you to give him the sodas instead, so he can try and seduce her with them. Giving him the bottles gets you Evil Karma, even though nothing comes of it and he never attempts to force himself on her. However, a quest in Rivet City has you retrieve ant queen pheromones for Angela Staley so she can use them to [[ButLiquorIsQuicker drug and seduce]] an acolyte named Diego, who likes her but has taken a vow of celibacy that he refuses to break. She succeeds, leading him to abandon his lifelong dream of priesthood and marry her out of a sense of obligation. This quest gives you ''Good'' Karma, despite the circumstances constituting DateRape.

* CrapsaccharineWorld: Tranquility Lane, a computer simulation in [[spoiler:Vault 112]], where is modeled after 1950's {{Suburbia}} with cheerful background music, neat and clean houses, perfectly manicured lawns, and white picket fences, a complete contrast to the wrecked and rotten neighborhoods of the surface world. However, it's also controlled by a sadistic german scientist named Dr. Braun in the guise of a little girl (who's actually [[spoiler:Dr. Braun]]) forces you girl, who uses his powers over the simulation to perform torment, torture and murder the other residents over and over again. Even without Braun's cruelty, it wouldn't be a series nice place to live anyway, considering it's consists entirely of increasingly evil acts before letting you leave [[spoiler:with your father.]]a CutAndPasteSuburb nestled within a small cul-de-sac with no apparent outside world.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: All the raiders are homicidally insane, drug-crazed loonies who live in shelters with human remains used as decoration. Text logs and messages suggest them to be capable of reasoning, but gameplay-wise all they ever do is [[SuicidalOverconfidence attack anything and everything regardless of consequences]].

Added DiffLines:

* DifficultButAwesome: Killing a super mutant behemoth with a single head shot from The Terrible Shotgun. Doing it is amazing to see, doing it is extremely difficult as it requires you to have Better Criticals, 100 in your Small Guns skill, the gun in pristine condition, be sneaking, and hit ''all nine pellets'' in it's face ''outside'' of V.A.T.S. (Vault-Tec's '''''Assisted Targeting System''')'' so each of the pellets get the critical damage bonus. Whiff that one shot and you'll have a pissed off giant trying to find you/finding you to beat your face in with a fire hydrant.

* AluminumChristmasTrees: To the surprise of many gamers, [[AceCustom Lincoln's Repeater]] is ''not'' fictional - it's based on an actual, custom-made Henry repeating rifle given to UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln as a gift in the hopes that he would adopt the design as standard-issue for the US Army.

* LostForever: Actually quite a few places cannot be revisited. This includes Raven Rock, the Mobile Base Crawler in ''Broken Steel'', and a lot of areas on the alien ship in ''Mothership Zeta''. After the start of the game, Vault 101 can be revisited for a single quest, before and after which it's inaccessible. Also, it goes without saying that choosing to nuke Megaton will lose you any associated quests, followers and equipment you might have wanted (with one exception, see below) -- but [[VideogameCrueltyPunishment that just serves you right]]. Raven Rock, Megaton and Vault 101 all contain Bobbleheads, missing any of which renders the GottaCatchEmAll achievement unwinnable.



** Your Companions aren't essential and, unless you have the ''Broken Steel'' add-on installed, they ''won't'' level with you. And since there are only 2 followers available per Karma level (2 Evils, 2 Neutrals, 2 Goods [[AndZoidberg and Dogmeat]]), you'll quickly dread seeing that little "[Companion] has been killed" text flashing on your screen in the midst of a heated battle. And it's not like they eventually respawn either or can be revived after the battle : any slain Companion ''is'' LostForever.

* RareCandy: The Vault-Tec Bobbleheads, and to a lesser extent, skillbooks. Also the Here and Now perk. The Bobbleheads give 1 point to their S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stat or 10 each skill and some Bobbleheads can be LostForever such as the one in Vault 101 or [[spoiler:Raven Rock]]. Skillbooks give 1 point to each skill or 2 with the comprehension perk. Here and Now is a perk available at level 10 or higher that sends you to he next level, as such it's of little use as you can just level up naturally without wasting one of your level-up perk slots.
