* CutYourHeartOutWithASpoon: The Courier makes ''many'' over the top threats, many of which [[GroinAttack involve cutting off someone's balls.]]

** While running up a Gecko filled ridge to save a guy's "girlfriend" ([[spoiler: really he's just using The Courier to get to a stash of loot]]), The Courier thinks about what if he got there and it said [[VideoGame/SuperMarioBrothers your girlfriend is on another ridge.]]

** Inverted when The Courier arrives at the camp. After being confused by the lack of hostility when entering The Great Khans' base camp, The Courier finds himself confused when one of the guards thanks him for "all the help he's given The Khans" previously and even points him to a place where he can buy special weapons. The Courier at first grumbles about their [[TooDumbToLive ridiculous indifference to a stranger entering their camp]], and [[ButForMeItWasTuesday has no idea what she's talking about regarding helping them previously.]] After a few minutes, he ''does'' remember negotiating safe passage for the Khans out of Boulder City and is shocked they remember it, pointing out how it took ''much'' more work to get recognition from the NCR.

** Inverted when The Courier arrives at the camp. Red Rock Canyon. After being confused by the lack of hostility when entering The Great Khans' base camp, The Courier finds himself confused blindsided when one of the guards thanks him for "all the help he's given The Khans" previously and even points him to a place where he can buy special weapons.

Added DiffLines:

* TheOneThingIDontHateAboutYou: For the most part the Courier's first impression of [[GeneralRipper Colonel Moore]]is about as positive as you would expect. But he does give her credit for at least not trying to sugar coat what she's asking of him.


* DramaticIrony: Paul, The Legion ambassador to the Great Khans, warns The Courier that he's "dangerously close to becoming an enemy of Caesar." The Courier, [[spoiler: having just killed Caesar two episodes prior]], smugly tells him to call Fortification Hill to get an update on Caesar's opinions of him.

The Courier's final judgement of energy weapons. [[note]] They're portrayed as more unreliable than they are in the actual game. [[/note]][[/note]]
** The anti-materiel rifle, while still a very powerful long-range weapon, has such an intense recoil it hurts the Courier when firing it.
--> '''The Courier:''' Okay, believe it or not, this is going to hurt me as much as it's going to hurt you!


* TheCynic:
--> '''The Courier:''' "What happened to common decency! No, scratch that, common decency went out the window the second Guy A [[HumansAreBastards realized he could whack Guy B over the head and steal all Guy B's stuff.]]"

* TheCynic:
TheCynic: During the psych test in Season 1 Episode 2, The Courier makes this comment when asked about how he feels about the statement "I ain't given to relying on others for support":
--> '''The Courier:''' "What happened to common decency! No, scratch that, common decency went "As far as I'm concerned there are more assholes out there than saints. And even if you know some good people, they still wouldn't appreciate doing ''everything'' for you. Hell, if they do then ''they're'' the window ones you should beware of. Next thing you know you're lying on the second Guy A [[HumansAreBastards realized he could whack Guy B over the head road with empty pockets and steal all Guy B's stuff.]]" a bullet hole in your chest. And then you wish you asked someone else for directions. Agree."

** Seemingly subverted by Season Seven, after ''finally'' earning a decent amount of money and [[spoiler: looting the late Van Graffs' energy weapons store]], The Courier's gang have more than enough money to walk into [[LasVegas the strip]], and with Mr. House providing a luxury sweet for them to use as their base, money no longer seems like an issue.

* GenreSavvy: The Courier has his moments, like correctly guessing that the snow globes laying around might be valuable to someone. [[note]] Mr. House turns out to be an avid collector who pays more for them than he offered for [[TheMacguffin the Platinum Chip.]][[/note]]

Added DiffLines:

* ThanatosGambit: The Courier briefly theorizes that the Legion infiltrator at McCarran is Esteban, the dead ranger whose mutilated body he retrieved from a Fiend ambush earlier, who arranged his own (possibly fake, possibly real) death in order to be "the last person you'd suspect".

Added DiffLines:

** For most part of ''Fly With Me'', he's been complaining almost constantly about the hard work, the dangers, the way Jason Bright's not on the up-and-up with things, and the fact that it's becoming increasingly clear that he's not going to be paid a single cap for it all. Then finally comes the launch, and seeing them fly off triumphantly (set to ''Ride of the Valkyries'', too), he admits it was all worth it.

Added DiffLines:

** ED-E complains when The Courier makes an insulting remark about robots (specifically, that they might as well replace the NCR troopers at the Outpost with robots since they could hardly get more useless) and calls him a racist. When The Courier points out that he didn't exactly get the best impression from Primm Slim, ED-E (apparently) replies that "he's just a Protectron model". The Courier does call him out on this.


* {{Deconstruction}}: Of course, it's a Mind series. The series basically gives a middle finger to many of the game's mechanics. For example:
