* FantasticDrug: The Season 2 episodes focusing on Nuka-Cola and Sunset Sasparilla reference both their drinks' status as potentially addictive componds, due to the unscrupulous practices both used to try and dominate the soft drink market. Mention is also made of the problems their status as such causes in a world where their recipes have been lost forever.

to:

* EvilLuddite: The Luddites in Season 3 Zig-Zag this trope: on the one hand, they look like most raiders/tribals, and have a violent streak against anybody with manufactured items from pre-War factories. On the other hand, they let travelers without high-tech items pass through their lands uninterrupted, and even when coming across those who carry high-tech items, they give them a chance to either give up those items (such as asking Junior to let them destroy his [[CoolCar Chryslus Highwayman]] and [[FrikkenLaserBeams laser rifle]]), or giving them a chance to just walk away (namely when the Storyteller waltzes over with Brotherhood of Steel power armor), which is a LOT more generous than even most wasteland factions who take a "shoot on sight" approach to intruders. [[spoiler: Their leader, King Ludd, is also a WellIntentionedExtremist who had a justified reason for instilling hatred of technology, [[ScienceIsBad what with them blowing the world into nuclear ash in the first place]], and [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure even lets the Storyteller's party heal the few survivors of the St. Louis Massacre with their Stimpaks]].]]

* TheTapeKnewYouWouldSayThat: When the Storyteller discovered that ED-NA was [[spoiler:loaded with audio logs made by Three-Dog]], one of the many things that the message contained was a rhetorical question about how the Storyteller was able to go from the East Coast to the West Coast so quickly, the Storyteller attempted to answer it, only to remember that this was just a recording
