--> '''"Dead End" Note:''' It's been a week, and I still haven't picked up Marko's trail. Sitting here now, alone, I can be completely honest. With myself and anyone who might read this. I've never felt like such a failure in my life. To let a man enter your home, and then watch helplessly as he murders your family in cold blood, is more than any person should have to bear. Now I can't even find the son-of-a-bitch to give him what he has coming. He kills my children in front of my eyes, and he gets to just walk away? No punishment, no justice? How is that fair? I'd kill myself, but I'm sure I'd just screw that up too. I just wish I knew what to do. I just wish God, or someone, would give me some kind of sign.

Added DiffLines:

* DisproportionateRetribution: The Courier kills his little brother, so he [[spoiler: slaughters your mentor in front of you, cripples you, and makes you watch as he slaughters an entire town of people, all uninvolved in your conflict, right in front of you. He even lampshades this a little later.]]


* BadassGrandpa: He's at least in his late fifties at this point, but despite slowing down somewhat due to his old age, he's still one of the most dangerous individuals in the wasteland.


* GenreSavvy: He's well aware that taking on the Courier directly is a bad idea and scolds Zimmer he lets the Courier go when he had a chance to kill him.


* TheBadGuyWins: Played With. [[spoiler: If the Courier turn tail and leave Deep Creek Mountains permanently, Marko finds out that he manages to survive; while he didn't react much when the Couriers alive and [[VillainRespect have some degree of admiration for him when he made it out of Utah alive.]][[PetTheDog Instead of going after him he decided to stay and rebuild FrostHill and the town began to thrive.]]]]

Added DiffLines:

* CruelAndUnusualDeath: In the ending where [[spoiler:the Courier doesn't kill him, Ford makes his way to Sac-Town, where he works as a security guard. However, he retains his cruelty and arrogance, and one day a homeless person shoots him in the testicles after being pushed too far by his "incessant derision". Ford bleeds to death in the street and no-one helps him. However, this ending is bugged, and leaving Ford alive will have the same result as though he was killed.]]

* PaperTiger: He has a surprisingly low tolerance to pain despite being a Great Khan (whose initiation ritual consists of getting beaten up by the whole tribe). If he loses all his goons and more than 1/3 of his HP when you fight him, he'll turn himself in to stop the pain.

* {{Jerkass}}: All his dialogue when you tell him you want to fight amounts to : "The next fighter sucks ass/kicks ass and is going to wreck your shit, so try to not get flattened too fast" and "You won, take your prize money and get outta here" when you win. In fact, his greeting dialogue switches from an angry "What the fuck do you want" to a grumpy "What is it" only after you won half a dozen matches.

* TheNicknamer: He ''always'' refers to you as a "tomato" to show his lack of confidence in you. Even when you take on his champion.
* SeriousBusiness: The man loves his boxing very much.
* TakeThat: When asked why he installed his gym in a remote place instead of Freeside or New Vegas, he replies that more often than not, in the more frequented places, someone will come complain about how they own your building and want to transform it, even if it's for ridiculous purposes. This is a subtle jab against some elements of the modding community[[note]]Empty buildings are frequently used by modders to save time instead of building new maps from scratch ; of course, multiple mods using the same building will cause conflicts, leading to bugs and/or crashes. And since a significant portion of the users will understand it as "the mod is broken" and complain to the mod creator rather than check for conflicts...[[/note]].
