I kind of like it (Destiny)

Right, it sounds like the Vanguard and maybe some of The City's other leadership knows that random glowing tech mites from a Clovis Bray facility are bad news. But to us Guardians? What can they possibly do to us? Kill us? We'd be more concerned if they somehow permanently damaged one of our cloaks or armor shaders.

Now, some of this Guardians being crazy stuff is probably just being played for laughs by Bungie, but there's likely some in-universe truth to it as well. It's probably why the attack on Crota's forces at the moon went so terribly wrong. We sent a force of thousands of immortal superheroes who very quickly found out that they weren't so immortal after all...

I'm still not so sure why Twilight Gap went so badly though. Did the combined Fallen forces have something to permanently kill Guardians at that battle? Similarly, how did Petra manage to accidentally kill some Guardians by ordering an airstrike on a Fallen position?
