He gives you a SadisticChoice: the two of you can fight to the death, or you can refuse and die to the nerve gas. You can either fight Bradley, [[BetterToDieThanBeKilled talk him into going out on his own terms]], or [[HeadsOrTails win a coin toss]]

* GreyAndGreyMorality: Though most of the time you can choose to be in the white, even then, the forces you ally and go against have ulterior motives and questionable means and to achieve them. Unless [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential you take the other route]], of course. [[WordOfGod SOFZ will focus on this trope]], as both the NCR and Legion will provide their own morally ambiguous ways to end the war.

[[WordOfGod someguy2000]] says that GreyAndGreyMorality would have covered the Siege as you and both sides witnessed, and became part of, the horrors of war. Now [[AbortedArc cancelled]] after being stuck in DevelopmentHell; the sheer difficulty of trying to make it work caused someguy2000 [[CreatorBreakdown to quit modding entirely for several months]].

* AscendedExtra: Marko was originally just a mysterious rapist and serial killer mentioned in a note found on the corpse of a wastelander in ''VideoGame/Fallout3'' who died trying to track him down for revenge. He becomes the BiggerBad of the ''Someguy Series'', leaving a trail of innocent victims across the devastated USA, and now commands a small army of psychopaths aligned with Caesarís Legion. Though unseen in ''NVB I'', he drives the plot, as Randallís bounty hunting career was triggered by Markoís rape and murder of his wife and child, and The Judge reports to Marko.

* AuthorAppeal: There are a lot of southern characters around, even though it doesn't make much sense in the setting. This gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] by Bobby Bass in New Vegas Killer
