* TheLoad: Your spouse if you go through the ShotgunWedding. A dumb hillbilly from a podunk town in the middle of nowhere with poor skills and little brains. There does exist a mod or too, floating around on the internet, that does allow the wife to actually level up and pull her weight around... but not for the guy.

* MagikarpPower: [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer Believe it or not]], but this trope applies to Vic. He is acclaimed as a [[JokeCharacter totally useless character]] both in and out of universe. It goes so far that your character starting Repair skill tends to be higher than his when you first meet and he's supposed to be your team mechanic. But what most people are unaware of is that he can level-up six times, have 12 Action Points (read - two shots per turn) ''and'' he can use rifles and energy weapons, which he can effectively use just after two level-ups. By comparison, resident badass Cassidy gets 10 Action Points on his final level, giving him only one shot per turn and his Small Guns skill is considerably lower. It's debatable how much this truly applies to Vic, though, since even at low level when his repair skills are poor he's still very effective in combat if you can give him a hunting rifle or similar gun.

* BadassFamily: The intelligent Deathclaws place emphasis on family and community above all things. [[GoingNative Integrating and assimilating humans into their pack]] makes them fearsome to outsiders, and to extremists, a threat [[ServantRace of things to come]].

* EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Matt makes this argument to the player that he [[WellIntentionedExtremist attacks the intelligent Deathclaws]] because, after seeing how organised they are in Vault 13, he's aware of their ''frightening potential'' to spread across the wasteland and become the [[MasterRace dominant species of the planet]].

* GrayAndGreyMorality: The whole conflict between Vault City and the NCR. NCR is a large, prosperous, and relatively tolerant nation that's restored order and civilization to their parts of the wasteland, but they're also aggressively expansionist and willing to do some really shady stuff to acquire more territory. Vault City is xenophobic and one of the principle sources of demand for slave labor in the wasteland, but wanting to remain independent is understandable, especially since they're falling victim to bandit raids that NCR is secretly backing.

** Strangely underappreciated by the Ron Perlman intro monologue, which could, with some verbal finangling, have avoided referring to the Vault Dweller as male or female, but just goes full lazy and calls "him" he. Possibly the only time in the game the character is explicitly sexed; later in the game, people remembering Fallout 1 just call "him" the Vault Dweller, sans pronoun.
