* BlessedWithSuck: The Jinxed trait turns you into a WalkingDisasterArea with ''everyone'' [[CriticalFailure critically missing]] as often as not. Pumping points into Luck will mostly counteract your failure chance, and melee/unarmed ignore the worst kinds of failure.[[note]]The worst they can do is drop, lose your turn or break a limb. Guns can lose all your ammo or hit unintended targets as well; energy weapons and grenades add ''exploding in your hand.''[[/note]] When built properly, the Chosen One will have a sadistic [[TheGadfly gadfly]] for a guardian angel, [[HeartIsAnAwesomePower but that's more than their enemies will ever have.]]

* DisasterDemocracy: Downplayed and twisted considerably. [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment NCR is a republic]] with a presidency and council, ''but'' Tandi served countless terms, as did [[HereditaryRepublic her father]]. Having said that, NCR was neither democratic nor a republic, but a humble hamlet known as Shady Sands when Vault Dweller rolled in, sorted their problems and provided them with free "now you can prosper like no-one else" coupons. It also took many years of scavenging and political negotiaion to create the Republic and it's still a shaky structure after a few decades.

** The Bridgekeeper Robes. As soon as you hit Level 10, you can find the Bridgekeeper as a random encounter, and if you know how to kill him via the pop-cultural reference he is, you can get his robes, which are as durable as Combat Armor and weight only 10 pounds.

* DummiedOut: Because Creator/BlackIsleStudios ran short of development time, quite a few places and quests were only halfway implemented or completely left out of the game, which leaves a couple of plot threads, such as finding Sulik's sister and exposing the cattle rustlers in Klamath, [[LeftHanging hanging in the wind]]. Fan-made patches, such as the [[http://www.killap.net/fallout2/web/Downloads.html Restoration Project]] (still updates regularly), seeks to restore them to a playable state. Still, there are many things even the Restoration Project has yet to explain, such as the "Brotherhood" area in the Oil Rig.

Added DiffLines:

* LethalJokeCharacter: The [[DoomMagnet Jinxed]] [[WalkingDisasterArea trait]] by itself creates a [[SadistShow sadist game]] via spectacular failures for everybody. Having 10 luck means "everybody" ([[HoistByHisOwnPetard usually]]) means "everyone who isn't you."

* TheYakuza: Appears as a minor, hostile faction seen in random encounters near New Reno. They wield Wakizashi and throwing knives and seem to have regressed to their Samurai origins, with a lot of their combat dialogue mentioning honor and other Bushido concepts.

** Stopping Modoc from attacking the Slags has to be done within 31 days. Even if you haul ass as fast as you can, you'll only have about 4 days to spare by the time you finish, unless you skipped over the main Modoc quest to get the car first... [[CuttingTheKnot Or happened to accidentally find the right person beforehand]], by proving he's alive instead of being a causality in the case.
