Main Series: Fallout Fallout 2 Fallout 3 Fallout: New Vegas Fallout 4 Spin-off games: Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel (semi-canon) Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (non-canon) Fallout Shelter (non-canon) Fallout: The Board Game (non-canon) Fallout 76Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Fallout is a series of pulp Science Fiction Western RPGs, originally owned and published by Interplay and Black Isle and currently owned by Bethesda. Right after The Elder Scrolls, it is the longest-running and best-selling single player WRPG series in history, with over 50 million game copies sold since the series began in 1997.note The first two games each sold around 600,000, with Tactics selling 300,000. Fallout 3 and New Vegas sold 11.6 million and 12.4 million, respectively. Fallout 4 is estimated to have sold over 20 million copies. Fallout 76 seems to have sold at least 5 million copies based on statements made by Bethesda regarding its sales relative to Fallout 4. The games involve adventures in the post-apocalyptic United States of a retro-futuristic Alternate History — a Crapsaccharine World that never quite got over The '50s, powered by Atomic Energy and filled with Moral Myopia.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })After World War II, the United States became an okay place to live. The shift towards nuclear energy gave way to technological wonders previously relegated to science fiction, from robot butlers to wrist-mounted computers. Unfortunately, the good times would not last: the world's inefficient technology depleted fossil fuels even faster than in the real world, causing massive resource wars to break out worldwide while China and the United States began hoarding their last fuel reserves. Eventually, the two superpowers clashed over the Alaskan oil fields, hoping to secure just a little more of that black gold... then, on October 23, 2077, the world ended. No one knows or cares which side fired the first missiles, but once they were up, everyone else fired too. The resulting "Great War" lasted a mere two hours, but the nuclear fire that burned the world was so incredibly destructive that it not only caused the collapse of global civilization, but irrevocably changed the planet's climate as well.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })Across the United States, pockets of humanity survived the bombs on the surface, in personal shelters, or by hiding in the Vaults: massive underground bunkers built by the Vault-Tec Corporation. These shelters were supposedly meant to protect mankind from nuclear fallout — but in reality, the project doubled as a mysterious, government-sponsored social experiment, with most Vaults' inhabitants living in conditions ranging anywhere from "somewhat unusual" to "outright torturous". While some Vaults were nonetheless able to support relatively stable societies, many degenerated into anarchy, or worse.The first Fallout begins almost a century later, in 2161. Though humanity has slowly begun to rebuild itself with some established towns, civilization as a whole struggles to survive amidst scarce resources, vicious mutants, and those who have turned to a Rape, Pillage, and Burn lifestyle. Subsequent games are set successive decades after the first, with the world continuing to evolve with new factions and adventures. There are two coherent story arcs and settings in the main series:

Abusive Precursors
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_109b036e
comment
Abusive Precursors: The Enclave, the remnants of the éminence grise of the United States federal government, the main antagonists of the second and third games. The Pre-War United States as a whole. The whole country became a corrupt, totalitarian police state that put unwilling human subjects through horrific scientific and social experiments. Even two centuries since they all went up in smoke in a nuclear holocaust they helped cause, most of the Wasteland's problems can be tied back to them: Deathclaws, Robobrains, the Vaults, most of the Big Empty, all came from them. The Think Tank also qualifies: mad scientists who were responsible for various horrible experiments carried out on political prisoners.

Ominous Hair Loss
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_133cdcaa
comment
Ominous Hair Loss: Hair loss is usually part and parcel of transformation into a ghoul, though to varying extents: some ghouls are completely bald, while others have only mild cases of alopecia, and occasionally it's possible to meet a ghoul with a full head of hair. Despite the deliberate inaccuracies featured throughout the games, the series occasionally likes to incorporate some of the real-world results of radiation exposure - including hair loss. In one morbidly amusing case, this led to a man believing that exposure to radiation was transforming him into an immortal ghoul after he found himself losing clumps of hair, when in reality he was just dying of radiation sickness. Subverted in Fallout: New Vegas with Chris Haversam, a human from Vault 34 who has joined the all-ghoul Bright Brotherhood religious group. Chris believes himself to be a ghoul because, as Vault 34's reactor technician, he was exposed to a large amount of radiation, he speaks with a gravelly voice (a trait many ghouls share), and eventually his hair began to fall out. The last part was in all actuality, just male pattern baldness setting in. Ironically, Vault 34's reactor malfunctioned after he left and turned most of the other dwellers into ghouls.

Gaia's Lament
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_13a6b7ef
comment
Gaia's Lament: This is the state of the world following the Great War of 2077. It's not called a Wasteland for nothing. The real damage came from a black rain filled with soot, ashes and poison several days after the nuclear exchanges. The rain lasted four days and killed off much of the plant, animal and human life that had escaped the initial destruction. While there are spots where nature is thriving like Zion Canyon or the Oasis, much of the Wasteland may never recover. Even before the war the situation was disastrous. The Great Canyon had lost its protected status and was turned into an uranium mine and later a toxic waste dump. Speaking of toxic waste, drums of radioactive goo were pretty much dumped everywhere with complete negligence. Terminals from the Nahant Oceanographic Society in Boston mention that the Atlantic ocean is pretty much dying.

Evil vs. Evil
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_1645005b
comment
Though given some of the things you read about the Pre-War United States, the conflict probably counts more as Evil vs. Evil. China was a brutal dictatorship which conquered and subjugated her neighbors with armies of Sociopathic Soldiers in a vain attempt to alleviate crippling economic problems. America was the exact same except with the added caveat that it was run by the Nazi Illuminati behind a puppet government and it also shamelessly poured resources into a number of horrific science projects (the Robobrains, various bioweapons like the FEV and alien-like 'wannamingos', etc.) and often using incarcerated Chinese-American citizens as guinea pigs.

The Anti-Nihilist
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_17640aa8
comment
The Anti-Nihilist: The setting of the Fallout universe is that a large percentage of humanity was killed by nuclear fallout, and structures of the old world are either decayed, eroding or destroyed. Anyone who was able to survive has to live in a world where the remaining survivors are converted into homicidal super mutants or turned into ghouls due to the lingering radiation. A large portion of animals have become hostile predators, robots are still following their programs to a murderous degree and multiple factions are further dividing the survivors due to a war to see who should repair civilization. Vault Tec still has posters and merchandise that promote this trope by telling the occupants to have faith in the government, survivors are trying to be hopeful and upbeat despite the circumstances, and finally people are trying find purpose in this apocalyptic world.

Gone Horribly Right
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_1994ba0b
comment
Gone Horribly Right: One of the intended functions of the Forced Evolutionary Virus was to repair chromosomal damage. One problem with this is that normal reproductive cells only have half the chromosomes of regular cells, and in fertilization these join to form a single cell with a full set of chromosomes. FEV "repairs" reproductive cells to have a full set of chromosomes, thus rendering everyone infected sterile.

Stat Death

comment
Stat Death: Although the player character's primary stats cannot normally be reduced below 1 (or 2, if the stat in question is boosted by a trait), the first two games made an exception for the stat reduction caused by radiation sickness. If it reduces any stat to 0, you drop dead even if you haven't reached the actual lethal dose yet.

World of Badass: Absolutely! The player and their companions each game count as a One-Man Army unto themselves, racking up hundreds of kills on an average playthrough. In a world where your little village could get overrun at any time by super mutants, feral ghouls, slavers, raiders, mutated animals, or power-armor clad extremists, not to mention that just being able to feed yourself for the day and go to sleep on a bed are luxuries many do not have, and just being able to survive to old age is a test of strength and will of anyone in the wasteland.

comment
Post-Peak Oil: Before the Great War, peak oil was the cause of the Resource Wars that devastated both Europe and the Middle East. Gas prices reached up to $1450.99 per gallon for regular. The United States (and possibly China) were only saved by going to an all-nuclear society, while the rest of the world ended up collapsing. It was all made moot however, when everyone started to sling nukes at each other.

comment
Invulnerable Civilians: In the first two games, all characters were killable by the PC, but were never subject to random deaths by other objects in the gameworld outside of battles that put NPCs in harm's way, such as the large Regulator shootout in the Boneyard in Fallout 1. Also, NPCs accidentally hitting (usually shooting) other NPCs in combat would often cause the injured party's AI to retaliate, along with other NPCs on the injured party's computer-defined "team." In a densely populated area such as the Den with many "teams" a few stray bullets or molotov cocktails can easily result in the townspeople all but wiping each other out with no input from the player.

Reality Ensues
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_1d9a2764
comment
Reality Ensues: Even with some of the wackier aspects put into consideration, this still very much applies. As early as Fallout 1, letting others know of Vault 13 is a good way to get the Master's attention much earlier, as news of a still-active Vault does spread relatively quick in the Wasteland. Similarly, Settlers are notified by Radio Beacons in order to join Minutemen settlements in 4. However, this also means that the knowledge of new & relatively rich towns now open for plundering will spread like wildfire, so the settlements should be prepared to fight off attacks from Super Mutants, Raiders, and Gunners. The Brotherhood of Steel in the West Coast for the longest time held to the belief that their power armor, high tech arsenal and increasingly dogmatic adherence to the Codex would be enough, despite their small numbers and dwindling tech advantage. Until they were defeated by an ever more powerful (and numerically superior) NCR, though the West Coast Brotherhood can still refuse to see the painful truth. In the First Battle of Hoover Dam, Caesar's Legion learned a brutal lesson on how their tactics and general M.O., which has allowed them to absorb and steamroll the tribals that had been their enemies for so long, mattered little in the face of an organized country's firepower, as the NCR demonstrated. For all their benevolent intentions, the Commonwealth Minutemen's absurdly weak command structure led to over-extension and a truly humiliating decline in regional power & influence, to the point that there's literally one Minuteman left in the entire Commonwealth at the start of the story.

Raygun Gothic
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_1e1f2e51
comment
People before the Great War had robots with advanced AI, wrist-mounted computers, laser weaponry, and powered armor, but were stuck on rotary phones (mobile phones don't exist), color televisions were a luxury, and their recording devices were audio-only reel-to-reel casettes. The series is vague on the degree to which the Internet and its associated functions were developed, but it's mostly implied to not have existed since most homes didn't own personal computers, and only major companies had internal email messaging systems which may be linked across multiple buildings. Computers are also relatively primitive, the more powerful ones demanding large terminals to operate, and reading into the system specs given on some systems shows them to be utterly pathetic compared to modern home computers even in the 90s. The reason for all this is two-fold, partially to conform to the franchise's Raygun Gothic motif, and partially to explore what kind of gaps in technological progress could result in that aesthetic becoming reality.

Punch-Clock Villain
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_20860a0e
comment
Punch-Clock Villain: One recurring theme throughout the series regarding the major evil organizations; the leadership is ruthless, and the rank-and-file have their share of True Believer fanatics and sadists, but many of them are actually just regular joes who think they're doing the right thing, simply obey because they've never known of any other alternative, or are trying to make the best of a bad situation. Members of the Big Bad faction of one game often show up in later games as friendly supporting characters, having chosen less antagonistic lifestyles or better role models. Fallout 2 has two notable examples. If you decide to eradicate everyone in the Enclave military base, the only NPC who asks you not to kill him is the cook in the mess hall, because that's all he does and didn't care who his employer was. The Hubologists have a scientist working for them who thought that all of them are whacked out crazy, but they pay him handsomely with good money and women, so he just goes along with it despite having no loyalty towards them.

All Crimes Are Equal
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_211eedd
comment
All Crimes Are Equal: Insofar as the idea of "crime" can exist in a society with no more centralized legal structure. Any sort of wrongdoing will typically be met with the same sort of response — everyone in the settlement attacks you. Take a step into a place you aren't allowed, steal a bottle of Nuka-Cola, or simply act like a Jerkass to the wrong person, and you can expect violence. Subverted in some settlements with jails and order, in these places you can actually be imprisoned. New Vegas gives a Hand Wave that NCR's troops are miserable due to the state of the Mojave and this is why they're so on-edge and don't care to punish crimes fairly, but it's still silly that a dozen armored troops will open fire on you just for taking a tin can off the floor that was marked as owned.

Crapsack World: The world is a ruined, post-apocalyptic wasteland, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. It only gets worse, folks. There are giant radioactive insects and arachnids, really unsociable mutants, zombie-like creatures of every flavor and variety, mass starvation, dehydration, radiation sickness, lethal booby-traps and the occasional inexplicable Eldritch Abomination. Humanity has responded to these challenges with rampant slavery, xenophobia, cannibalism, and murder on a scale that can potentially reach genocide. The whole world seems to be designed to remind the human race of how royally they screwed up the planet, and most of the human race still isn't getting the message. There are examples of civilization trying to rebuild itself, but this sometimes results in places like den of vice New Reno and fascist communities like Vault City. Still, the player can - should they so choose - leave the gameworld a little better than they found it. Or just make it massively worse, of course...

Good Is Not Nice
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_21f3aa44
comment
Good Is Not Nice: The Brotherhood of Steel in general, though it does have a few genuinely kind members. Despite being one of the nicest major factions in the series, many of the New California Republic's actions in Fallout 2, such as hiring raiders to attack Vault City and having dealing with the crime families at Reno, are morally questionable. There are also certain political elements within the government who are attempting to turn the alliance into more of a fascist police-organization. As one NPC puts it, "Their heart is in the right place, but their head is up their ass!"

Good Is Not Soft: A universal truth in the main five games. You can play an All-Loving Hero who upholds morality and protects the innocent, but there's a lot of nasty people out there looking to ruin your hard work, and they are not going to survive the attempt.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_22071825
comment
I'm a Humanitarian: Many have taken to consuming human flesh in the post-apocalypse, from lone travelers to entire towns. The player can become one from the third game onward with the "Cannibal" perk, which allows them to devour corpses on the spot in exchange for negative karma and hostility from witnesses (and disapproval from most of your non-cannibal companions in the fourth game). New Vegas adds the "Ghastly Scavenger" perk as well, which allows you to bypass the risk of retaliation by subtly scavenging bits from dead enemies for later consumption.

Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness: It'd be easier to list sci-fi elements that haven't been included in the series, most of which would be totally impossible with real science. Still, it ranks as a 2 since the series is (largely) void of supernatural elements and Phlebtonium is consistent.

Padded Sumo Gameplay: The first two games have this issue in the very late game, where opponents with power armor are almost incapable of doing even a single point of damage except in critical blows, so combat basically boils down to watching “0 Points Of Damage” bullets bounce off each other until “Critical Hit for 999 HP” obliterates somebody.

Dragon Their Feet: In Fallout 2 and 3, you don't confront Enclave superweapon Frank Horrigan or Enclave military commander Colonel Autumn, who will "spare" you with a successful speech check until after you've already killed the Big Bad President and wiped out the Enclave's main base. Likewise, in Fallout, the final two missions are to kill the Big Bad and to destroy the Super Mutant vats (guarded by The Dragon), and you can tackle them in any order you want (Although canonically The Dragon and the vats were destroyed after the Master's death). Likewise, in Vegas, Legate Lanius and General Oliver lead the Caesar's Legion and NCR forces during the game's final battle, despite Caesar himself and President Kimball both likely having died earlier in the game.

Generation Xerox: Everyone from the original Vault 13 Dweller's bloodline seems to have pure badass embedding in their genes. First there is the Vault Dweller, who stops a plot to turn the population of the Wasteland into super mutants by destroying two underground lairs, saves quite a few communities along the way, and ends up as the chief of a newly formed tribe, before going adventuring again in old age, presumably dying somewhere out in the wastes. Then, 80 years later, his grandchild, the Chosen One, stops a plot to commit a holocaust on the Wasteland by blowing up an oil rig, again saving some developing communities along the way, and ends up becoming head of a new society (New Arroyo). And in one of the endings in Fallout 2, the Chosen One fathers a bastard-child with one of the Bishop women from the Bishop crime family, who, already at age 13, takes control over the family, and leads it to victory over New Reno's other crime families and, despite being a powerful Mafia boss in a crime ridden city at a time where the average lifespan is low, manages to live to the age of 73, where he dies peacefully in his sleep. This ending was confirmed as canon in New Vegas, by Bruce Isaac, who fled town after stealing from the casino and sleeping with Mr. Bishop's daughter. Likewise, the Cassidy clan are also hardasses with a tendency to associate with legendarily awesome people.

Mythology Gag: In Fallout, the recruitable NPC Tycho mentions he's a Desert Ranger. The Desert Rangers were the protagonists of Wasteland, the game to which Fallout is a Spiritual Successor. The Big Bad of Fallout Tactics also seems to be a subtle Shout-Out to the Big Bad of Wasteland. As per Word of God, Tycho's outfit became the basis of the Desert Ranger Combat Armor, which in itself inspired the Iconic Outfit of the NCR Veteran Rangers. And in Fallout 4, the Commonwealth Minutemen's relationship with the Settlers under their protection is based after that of Wasteland's Desert Rangers.

In the third game, you're woken up in the middle of the night and barely have time to grab some of your personal belongings and take a gun your friend offers you before you have to flee the Vault. You can at least loot the Vault guards you kill and find some other stuff along the way, letting you get your hands on low-level armor and some Vendor Trash before you're thrown into the wasteland.

Regional Redecoration: During the Great War in Fallout's backstory, it's said that entire mountain ranges were created as the ground buckled and moved under the strain of thousands of atomic explosions. It's unknown if this is true or not, as none of the locations shown in the actual games are all that geologically different, aside from the occasional craters. Of course, the more obvious case of redecoration is that most environments have become the scorching radioactive desert known as the wasteland.

Oppressive States of America
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_2991089a
comment
Oppressive States of America: The Pre-War United States of America was not pretty. The infrastructure of America had collapsed due to the resource shortages (food, fuel, and material) while unemployment was skyrocketing. The government responded by becoming a police state and by trying to blame their problems on Communists, then brutally cracking down on anyone who spoke out against their regime. Arrests, "re-education," and in some cases outright murder followed as the government tried to keep the population in line. At the same time, the New Plague (suspected to be a bio-weapon unleashed by one of America's enemies) began to spread, leading to nationwide quarantines. Before long the government had given up trying to cure it and decided to use the paranoia created by its spread as a cover in order to break up assemblies and register people. Eventually, civil liberties became virtually non-existent. In one example the commanding Officer of the Hopeville missile base, Commander Devlin, had a protest group arrested and sent off for human experimentation, claiming it would give them "the white-hot rage of capitalist justice." These tactics made things worse, and by the end of 2077 the United States was on the verge of a massive civil uprising. This was done because the éminence grise of the federal government (The Enclave) realized it was likely only a matter of time until total nuclear war occurred, and knowing that the common man would not survive it they believed that they alone were worthy of re-colonizing the planet. Originally their focus was to find another planet to live on, however they could not succeed in this goal and decided to re-colonize the planet they were already on.

Gay Option
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_2a019fef
comment
Gay Option: In Fallout 2 there are same-sex Optional Sexual Encounters available for both sexes, though significantly more for women than men (in fact, there are more lesbian options than straight ones for women). Fallout 3 mostly avoids the issue altogether by not even including a straight option. Male and female player characters can hire Nova, the town prostitute in Megaton, and Bittercup, the town goth in Big Town, develops a crush on the player regardless of gender (though her crushes are mostly her turned into a Perky Goth and giving you whatever crap she found in the patrols). New Vegas adds 2 new perks, Confirmed Bachelor for men, and Cherchez La Femme for women, which will give special dialogue options when dealing with an NPC of the same sex, (and a 10% damage bonus against the same sex) much how the Black Widow and Lady Killer perks function when dealing with the opposite sex. If you have this perk, you can recruit one follower (which one depends on your gender, there's one for each) bypassing the usual skill check needed by flirting with them, essentially giving you a same sex romantic option. If you are a man with the perk, you can also get all your stuff repaired for free any time you want by flirting with an NPC and asking him to be "friends." Unrelated to the perk, but you can also hire same-sex prostitutes, male or female, in New Vegas if you should so choose. In Fallout 1, rescuing Sinthia at the hotel in Junktown will get the player a 'reward'… whichever the main character's gender may be.

Auto-Doc: The Trope Namer. For the most part, they seem to work pretty well, but A.I. Is a Crapshoot is still in full effect here. A good example of both instances occurs in the Old World Blues DLC for New Vegas. The Think Tank were experimenting with a procedure to remove a subject's brain and replace it with a Tesla coil, yet retain their personality and memories. Unfortunately a technical glitch in their Autodoc caused the procedure to destroy the minds of all the test subjects, until the Courier's unique bullet-scarred brain forces it to reboot back to its original settings, preventing them from becoming a Lobotomite.

Nominal Hero: The player can make their character one. You can openly be a sadistic bastard who steals, lies, backstabs and murders their way through the wastelands, but by the end of the game your character will be a hero known across the Wastelands for their great deeds. Played straightest in Fallout and Fallout 2, where your character will become famed in later games regardless of their actions towards the other settlements. Played with in Fallout 3 where there were evil endings and characters reacted appropriately to you taking them. Averted in New Vegas where if you join House or NCR with negative karma, people and the endings will acknowledge you as an evil person that just happens to feel like working for the good guys, and if you join the Legion you are vilified along with them. The narrator will even dwell a bit on the contradiction of a character with good karma helping the Legion to achieve their goal.

Eternal English: Zigzagged. On the one hand, the more civilized groups and factions (be it frontier towns or the likes of the Brotherhood of Steel and NCR) still speak a modern American English that someone from before the Great War centuries before could easily understand. This is justified due to the presence of ghouls who were around in 2077, lingering traditions carried over from the Old World and concerted efforts to preserve (and add new) knowledge. Tribals on the other hand are shown as having undergone Language Drift over generations, their languages being creoles descended from English and whatever other tongues their ancestors spoke to the point of being almost unrecognizable. Some Tribes in Fallout Tactics almost descend into You No Take Candle territory.

Cursed With Awesome
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_309b8806
comment
Cursed With Awesome: As is typical for post-apocalypse scenarios, a handful of 'mutants' turn out to have advantages that go along with their deformities. The Ghouls may make third degree burn victims look pretty, but they are immune to radiation, can't die from old age, and can seemingly enter a sort of hibernation where they don't need food, water, or even air. In fact, if they were able to breed they might be considered an improvement over humanity. Sadly, some ghouls seem prone to eventually degenerate into a 'feral' condition that reduces them to a (hostile) ape-like level of intelligence. In Fallout 2, you can stumble across a ghoul who was Buried Alive in the cemetery outside New Reno. He complains that it took you long enough. In New Vegas, you encounter a group of ghouls who plan on leaving for their lethally-radioactive "promised land" to escape persecution from humans. In Fallout 4, you can discover Billy, a Ghoul boy who has been trapped in a fridge for 210 years (he used it as a way to take shelter from the bombs, but got stuck) Super Mutants (the name stuck before their true origins were learned) were specifically designed to be superior to humans in coping with the harsh Wasteland: they're radiation-proof, staggeringly strong and shrug off bullets... but their gifts came at the cost of them being sterile and not very bright (with a few exceptions). In fact, the vast majority of Super Mutants found on the East Coast are Always Chaotic Evil (although this is justified by them both being created by inferior FEV strains and being largely culled from Wastelander stock - who are already usually dumb to a fault anyway).

However, what most consider to be quite possibly the most reprehensible act you can accomplish in Fallout 3 is going to Rivet City and convincing the mentally unstable Mr. Lopez to commit suicide. It's notable that while people will happily upload videos of nuking Megaton, virtually no one has really posted videos of this online.

There's also a number of Cryptic Background References, most (but not all) involving Dunwich Borers LLC, that suggest several truly Lovecraftian abominations exist in the world. Not mutant results of the Great War, but the real deal: vile, possibly genuinely magical entities pre-dating human civilization itself.

comment
After the End: Nobody knew who fired the first missile that triggered the apocalypsenote  although a computer in Fallout 4 implies that China shot first, and by the end of the day, nobody cared. It was considered the end of the world. But still, humanity survived — mutated, blood thirsty, and completely shattered — and the world moved on. The Great War wasn't the end, simply one more sad chapter.

comment
The Man They Couldn't Hang: Van Buren was going to have one, called The Hanged Man, as a companion NPC. He was retooled, along with a lot of content from Van Buren, in New Vegas as the Burned Man. He comes up a lot when speaking about Caesar's Legion, and eventually appears in the Honest Hearts DLC as The Atoner. There, he's revealed to be Joshua Graham, Caesar's former Legate who was burned alive and thrown into the Grand Canyon for failure during the First Battle of Hoover Dam, only to survive and return to his home, New Canaan (formerly known as Ogden).

comment
Your Princess Is in Another Castle! Inversion - while searching Vault City's database for your Vault in Fallout 2, your character will notice a Pip-Boy hole if his/her Perception is above or equal to 7. Shoving your Pip-Boy in will give you the location of nearly all the locations. (Normally, finding the vaults would be an arduous task with several middle men involved.) Played straight early in Fallout 1, when you discover that Vault 15's water-purification chip is utterly inaccessible. Also in Fallout 1, once you finish the water-purification chip quest, that's not the end.

While the Institute are considerably grayer on the morality spectrum than both the Legion and Enclave, they also are examples of this. They justify their brutal conspiracy over New England by explaining that they plan on eventually supplying their advanced technology to the surface so as to create a utopia - but will only do this with a society they find worthy enough for their tech, so as to prevent the Great War from happening all over again. Any society they find "inferior" or not meeting their standards? They'll happily smother it in the cradle.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Amazingly, the series is idealistic. Yes, the world has burned in nuclear fire and is host to all manner of unsavory characters and vicious animals who will kill you or worse. But civilization has endured, is rebuilding, and there is still goodness and virtue in the hearts of many. And if you play a good character, the good will eventually overcome the evil. Fallout's part of the reason why tropes like Earn Your Happy Ending exist.

Defector from Decadence
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_38f1a7ed
comment
Defector from Decadence The talking Deathclaws in Fallout 2: somehow they built a moral and social structure, though their creators certainly wouldn't have encouraged it. The Brotherhood of Steel, founded by Captain Roger Maxson and his squad of U.S Army soldiers, who defected from the U.S goverment when they discovered that their superiors had been experimenting on human test subjects with their F.E.V just before the War broke out. The Columbia chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel deviated from their original mission (gathering old technology) to helping the inhabitants of the wasteland. This change lead to a significant number of BoS members claiming Lyons was a defector. So the Defectors from the Defector from Decadence became the Brotherhood Outcasts, who are a lot less altruistic, especially if they see you handling any piece of technology more sophisticated than a gun.

Zeerust: The surviving pre-apocalypse architecture and technology is highly reminiscent of '50s Pop Art: complete with muscle cars, vacuum tube computers, and tin-can robots. Background material establishes that America (and by extension, the world) never really moved beyond the 1950's in terms of values. The 60's revolution was either much less influential, only effected music, or both, and there was no 80's technological shift due to the absence of the transistor. As a result, even though the world "ended" in 2077, culturally, it had barely progressed at all.

In 3, guns are Boring, but Practical compared to energy weapons. The Alien Blaster is one of the strongest weapons in the entire game, but Abe Lincoln's old .44 Winchester repeater isn't that far behind and it uses fairly easy to come by .44 ammunition rather than irreplaceable alien power cells.

Villainous Legacy

Villainous Legacy: Non-character example. The Big Bad of the first game, The Master, was using the Forced Evolutionary Virus to mutate humans. The villains of the second game excavated the ruins of his lair to retrieve the FEV for their own uses, and the villains of the third synthesized their own version for their plan as well. And while it's not an essential part of the game's plot, the fifth game (Fallout 4) reveals that the Institute also had samples of FEV, which they used to help experiment with the creation of synthetic tissue - which inadvertently created the Commonwealth's breed of Super Mutants.

Canon Identifier: Every protagonist receives an In-Series Nickname based on their background: Fallout 1's protagonist leaves the comfort of their vault at the behest of the Overseer, becoming known as The Vault Dweller. Fallout 2's main character is The Chosen One, the descendent of The Vault Dweller who was sent forth on a quest to save the town which was founded when TVD was exiled at the end of the first game. Fallout 3's hero leaves the comfort of Vault 101 in search of their father (and because his leaving prompted the Overseer into trying to kill them), picking up the title of The Lone Wanderer from the resident disc jockey in the course of their quest. Fallout: New Vegas opens with the PC getting shot in the head and buried alive by a gangster who wanted a package they were carrying. They become known by the job title that got them into this mess: The Courier. Fallout 4 stars a pre-war citizen of the USA who was frozen along with everyone else in their vault before the bombs dropped. They see their spouse shot dead and their infant son kidnapped, leading to them being known as The Sole Survivor. This one proved controversial, as it gave the PC a far more specific background than previous titles, which some players found limiting and uninteresting.

Ragnarök Proofing
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_3bce9346
comment
Ragnarök Proofing: Averted in the first two games, which pretty much assume complete destruction of every identifiable landmark that hasn't been constantly maintained (one location, appropriately called Junktown, is apparently constructed entirely out of scrap wood, stone, and metal). Played strongly in the third, where (despite heavy atomic onslaught and 200 years without maintenance) historic DC landmarks are still standing and almost completely intact; you can still generally get lights and (heavily irradiated) running water wherever you go. In New Vegas, it's justified thanks to Mr. House's long-term planning (and anti-missile laser defense system) sparing Vegas and the Mojave (and even more so, Hoover Dam) from the worst of the Great War. Additionally, Las Vegas was said to be heavily dilapidated and ruined when Mr. House woke from his coma and formed an alliance with the tribals inhabiting the ruins: Vegas had only recently been restored to an approximation of its pre-War glory in order to "roll out the red carpet" for the arrival of the NCR. 4 also plays this trope relatively straight, but is partly justified due to the fact that only one atomic bomb was aimed at Boston, and it missed, sparing the city from atomic annihilation, (though not from 200 years of neglect and exposure to the Black Rain).

Schizo Tech
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_3c5ae1a1
comment
Schizo Tech: People before the Great War had robots with advanced AI, wrist-mounted computers, laser weaponry, and powered armor, but were stuck on rotary phones (mobile phones don't exist), color televisions were a luxury, and their recording devices were audio-only reel-to-reel casettes. The series is vague on the degree to which the Internet and its associated functions were developed, but it's mostly implied to not have existed since most homes didn't own personal computers, and only major companies had internal email messaging systems which may be linked across multiple buildings. Computers are also relatively primitive, the more powerful ones demanding large terminals to operate, and reading into the system specs given on some systems shows them to be utterly pathetic compared to modern home computers even in the 90s. The reason for all this is two-fold, partially to conform to the franchise's Raygun Gothic motif, and partially to explore what kind of gaps in technological progress could result in that aesthetic becoming reality. The Post-War world naturally has even more of this going on, since people have to make a living with whatever they can scrounge up that may or may not be functional anymore. It's completely normal for wastelanders to live in ramshackle houses built from plywood boards and chain link fences, get their drinking water from hand-crank water pumps, and defend their homestead with a semi-automatic laser rifle and a pre-war combat robot they repaired. On the other hand a scavenger might explore the wasteland outfitted in a suit of Powered Armor and armed with a homemade pipe rifle held together by duct tape and hope. Major factions like NCR, the Brotherhood of Steel, and the Institute, tend to have a more uniform level of technology since they have the means to mass produce and repair things to outfit large armies.

Fallout 2: The Enclave Oil Rig, the stronghold of the extremely well-equipped remnants of the éminence grise members of the United States Government, a massive fortress significantly larger than any other settlement or dungeon, populated by an army larger than all other armies combined, consisting of incredibly tough Powered Armor-wearing soldiers loaded with the best weapons in the game and lots of stimpaks. Indeed, unless you're an insanely tough, completely combat-oriented character, your only viable means of getting through is to disguise yourself by wearing one of their own armored suits and sneaking past everyone.

New Old West
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_3dc6aa5b
comment
New Old West: Certain elements of the Capital Wasteland (mining and 'frontier' type towns, bounty hunters, travelling traders beset by robbers, a heroic (or villainous) drifter, etc.) hearken back to Westerns, but with places like Rivet City or the Vaults, those elements are mixed in with Sci-Fi. Essentially, wherever the post-apocalypse survivors can't scavenge old technology, the lack of oil or uranium leads to nineteenth-century technology being their ceiling - and everywhere is a frontier. New Vegas is much more prominent in this. Revolvers and dusters and other parts of cowboy culture are given great focus, and several towns (like Goodsprings in the beginning of the game) heavily resemble the Old West. Fallout 4 also has heavy Wild-West undertones - the Commonwealth Minutemen are pretty much an entire knightly order of Cowboy Cops - but adds in influences from Colonial and Civil War-era Americana.

A minor, but rather poignant, bit of cruelty is convincing Moira Brown to give up on her Wasteland Survival Guide. Not only is this considered evil, but it gives you a perk called "Dream Crusher" (a perk that prevents enemies from scoring critical hits) and forever dampens her ordinarily cheery attitude. They really went out of their way to make you seem like a bastard for doing it. In Broken Steel you can wipe the Brotherhood HQ right off the map, kill off any stragglers, and get a special Magnum if you do. However, what most consider to be quite possibly the most reprehensible act you can accomplish in Fallout 3 is going to Rivet City and convincing the mentally unstable Mr. Lopez to commit suicide. It's notable that while people will happily upload videos of nuking Megaton, virtually no one has really posted videos of this online.

Every Car Is a Pinto: And not just regular Pintos, nuclear-powered Pintos. Broken down, nuclear-powered Pintos.

A notable example from Fallout 3 is a section of highway that is just loaded with them, and a raider camp living in between them all. Set off one on the end of the highway and watch the chain reaction.

We Will Use Lasers in the Future
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_40811c85
comment
We Will Use Lasers in the Future: In Fallout 1, there were only 2 standout normal firearms - the sniper rifle and the .223 pistol. Their real advantages only amounted to easy to find ammo and decent damage (and in the case of the sniper rifle, the longest range in the game though in practice few fights take place anywhere so spreadout that it has any advantage over other rifles). Otherwise conventional firearms had underwhelming damage, often doing about 1/3 of the average damage that the equivalent laser does. Sure some of the more advanced armour and the metal armour had a slight damage resistance edge against energy weapons compared to standard firearms, but the sheer damage the energy guns put out can better shear through a armour's damage threshold. With enough micro-fusion cells, there's little reason to go back to conventional firearms except for saving ammo and personal preference. Later games do a better balance, but there's usually an advantage to energy guns by the late game.

Indestructible Edible: All the packaged foodstuffs you find are 80-210 years old, and perfectly edible, although irradiated, and the soda is "warm and flat". Perhaps justified, because irradiated food won't spoil (although the preservatives should have turned toxic by then). Fallout 4 lampshades it with the "Perfectly Preserved Pies," slices of totally unblemished, good-as-the-day-they-were-baked pie that can rarely be found in ancient vending machines - one character warns that you shouldn't trust anything that looks that good after so long.

Wretched Hive: Being set in a lawless, apocalyptic wasteland means these crop up quite a bit throughout the series, with varying degrees of wretchedness. One location in Fallout 2 is even described as such, word-for-word. Perhaps the most notable example is the slaver den of Paradise Falls in Fallout 3 - razing it to the ground is practically a rite of passage for good-karma players.

Bittersweet Ending

comment
Bittersweet Ending: Fallout ends with the player banished from the Vault forever despite saving most of West Coast humanity. Depending on the choices you made in Fallout 2, a lot of places can end up badly despite your best efforts (or more likely, because of them). In Fallout 3, Lyons' Heroic Sacrifice ending probably falls here, as it's your ally sacrificing herself to activate Project Purity to provide clean, fresh water to the Wasteland. It doesn't solve everything, but it's a start. Of course, you're a cowardly bastard for not doing it yourself. The Corrupt and Coward Endings are even worse. Finally, one of the third game's optional sidequests is a setup for a Shout-Out to the ending of the first (and it either hurts just as much or makes you really angry, depending on who you ask). Pretty much every ending for New Vegas has some negative consequence to it. And Fallout 4 is much the same way as your quest to find and save your son turns out to be fruitless as he is a sixty year old man and a candidate for Big Bad while all the faction endings have some bad consequences.

In New Vegas, the people who left you for dead took more than just the Macguffin you were carrying, so when you wake up the doctor gives you back what you had left on you, a pistol, a handful of caps, some stimpaks, and a few bobby pins. Skill checks with the doctor or his equipment can reward a couple more items.note In addition, due to a development oversight everything in his house is marked as unowned, allowing you to freely loot a lot of valuable gear. This is completely averted with the Courier's Stash DLC, which gives you all five pre-order bonus packs at the start of the game, giving you multiple weapons and suits of armor along with many more healing items and other things of use.

Doomed Hometown: The first two games start out with the player having to stop their hometown's impending destruction. In the fourth, you get to see the hometown before the nukes fall, and then again after spending 210 years as a Human Popsicle. Unlike most examples, you actually get the opportunity to rebuild it if so inclined.

A.I. Is a Crapshoot
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_420c50b7
comment
A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Varies quite a bit. Artificial intelligences are rare, bulky, immobile machines in Fallout (with the exception of the "androids" developed at post-war MIT). Some intelligences are sane and helpful, others are unstable but relatively harmless, and a few are villains. A Brotherhood of Steel computer in the second game implies that a fully self-aware AI is just as capable of going insane as humans are. This causes problems when for example you have one running in complete isolation for years...

Hyperactive Metabolism: Played straight, eating nets you a few HP. This can also be gained as a perk; it increases your vulnerability to poison and radiation, but increases the health you get back from food and medicine. Builds favoring the Survival skill over Medicine in New Vegas can actually heal gunshot wounds better by eating than by using stimpaks. There's even a drug ("Hydra") that can regrow broken limbs!

Expansion Pack: Bethesda Software added a lot to the main questline of Fallout 3 with the downloadable add-ons, including one module that revisits a key battle in the background of the Fallout world (the Battle of Anchorage), another that allows players to visit a city mentioned in passing by another NPC, and one that promises to address the brevity of the main questline by allowing players to continue the game after the controversial ending.

GreyAndGreyMorality
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_445bc425
comment
Grey-and-Grey Morality: Nobody knows (or cares) whether the US or China started the war. All that matters is that the entire world was almost completely destroyed because two superpowers couldn't get along. China tried to annex Alaska, while the US government showed summary executions (with the executioner laughing no less) as pro war propaganda. Nobody is really innocent here. Though given some of the things you read about the Pre-War United States, the conflict probably counts more as Evil vs. Evil. China was a brutal dictatorship which conquered and subjugated her neighbors with armies of Sociopathic Soldiers in a vain attempt to alleviate crippling economic problems. America was the exact same except with the added caveat that it was run by the Nazi Illuminati behind a puppet government and it also shamelessly poured resources into a number of horrific science projects (the Robobrains, various bioweapons like the FEV and alien-like 'wannamingos', etc.) and often using incarcerated Chinese-American citizens as guinea pigs. The series as a whole generally likes this trope, although it typically leans more on Black and Grey Morality. New Vegas and 4 probably play this trope the straightest with their central conflicts.

Scavenged Punk: Much of the weapons, equipment, clothing, armor, and at least one entire city are made of Pre-War junk that's distinctly Atom Punk in style. 2 introduced "pipe guns," ramshackle firearms made out of wood, scrap metal, and prayers that were the favored (i.e. only one they could afford) firearm of the Klamath gecko hunters. Pipe guns got more play in 4 as the firearm of choice for the truly desperate.

In the fourth game, you wake up from cryo-sleep to find your already smaller-than-normal Vault has long been abandoned and most things of value have been taken by the former staffers or other looters. The only things left are a handful of stimpaks, a couple of police batons and handheld pistols, and general junk. There is a valuable unique weapon here, the Cryolator, but it's in a security case with a Master-level lock, which is why no one has taken it already and it'll be a long time before you can get it without cheating.

The Outside World
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_462e2f79
comment
The Outside World: This applies to a surprisingly large amount of characters, even player characters. The protagonists of F1 and F3 were both raised in Vaults, while the Chosen One from F2 was raised in a tiny, isolated village. All the characters who grew up in the Vaults had no contact with the outside until the Vaults opened, exposing them to a huge but very dangerous world. Virtually nothing is known about the world outside of North America; the vast majority of characters in the series are either from North America, were in it when the bombs fell and survived through mutation, or are long-dead by the time the player "encounters" them. The only characters outright confirmed to have travelled to the continent post-war are Allistair Tenpenny and Colin Moriarity from the British Isles, the former refusing to talk about his origins and the latter outright lying about them, claiming to have been born and raised in the D.C. area despite his thick accent.

Always Chaotic Evil
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_4832a3bb
comment
Super Mutants (the name stuck before their true origins were learned) were specifically designed to be superior to humans in coping with the harsh Wasteland: they're radiation-proof, staggeringly strong and shrug off bullets... but their gifts came at the cost of them being sterile and not very bright (with a few exceptions). In fact, the vast majority of Super Mutants found on the East Coast are Always Chaotic Evil (although this is justified by them both being created by inferior FEV strains and being largely culled from Wastelander stock - who are already usually dumb to a fault anyway).

The Columbia chapter of the Brotherhood of Steel deviated from their original mission (gathering old technology) to helping the inhabitants of the wasteland. This change lead to a significant number of BoS members claiming Lyons was a defector. So the Defectors from the Defector from Decadence became the Brotherhood Outcasts, who are a lot less altruistic, especially if they see you handling any piece of technology more sophisticated than a gun.

Distant Sequel: While individual games are set no more than a few decades after their prequels, the years add up between installments — Fallout 4 is set 126 years after the original Fallout 1, and, while still set in an After the End Scavenger World, later games show signs of civilization having rebuilt considerably from the point of the first few games. Among other things, agriculture, trade and nations larger than village-sized city-states all reappear as time goes on. The New California Republic, which the player helps establish and defend in early games, has for instance grown into a powerful nation by the time of New Vegas.

Surviving documents portray the unnamed Presidents as corrupt and callous, and in the games themselves, there's President Dick Richardson, the Big Bad of Fallout 2, and John Henry Eden, the Big Bad of 3. Both of them are Eagleland Type 2 assholes who want to exterminate all mutated humans and repopulate the world with the Enclave citizenry, and are still obsessed with wiping out China. What arguably makes them worse is that they're not loud-mouthed racists, they genuinely belive that only the Enclaves example of humanity deserve to exist.

Useless Useful Spell
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_4c709317
comment
Useless Useful Spell: There are a few traits and perks in the series that are theoretically awesome but useless in practice, such as the third game's 'Nuclear Anomaly' perk (funny, and occasionally handy, but it doesn't discriminate between friend and foe and cannot be turned off), the first and second game's 'Skilled' and 'Night Person' traits and 'Presence' perk, and a few others. Fast Shot (-1 AP to shoot, no aimed shots) + One Handed (Bonus to hit with one-handed weapons, penalty with two-handed) is a fun combination for role-playing purposes and not using Gifted. Pretty viable in Fallout 2 with some Melee/Unarmed skill and gets better once you get a .44 Magnum. Computer Whiz and Infiltrator in Fallout 3 and New Vegas. Respectively allows you to re-hack a computer if you locked it after failing to hack it and to pick a lock you've broken by trying to force it. Useless for two reasons: you can leave the computer and retry anytime as long as you didn't lock it and forcing the lock is an option.

Downer Ending: They're available if you really go out of your way to achieve them. Bear in mind that since even 'good' endings tend to be bittersweet, the "bad" endings can be hugely depressing. The Pre-War world struggled with resource shortages, oppressive governments, and brutal warfare for twenty-five years before it all ended in a blaze of nuclear fire. Whats worse is that most of their problems could easily have been fixed as the technology for renewable energy and resources already existed before the War broke out, but the surviving nations had been fighting the same war for so long they were incapable of changing. Ironically, many of these technologies survived the war, hidden away in protected goverment bunkers, and can be found and revived by the player.

Prolonged FEV exposure can mess you up in an impressive manner. The Master began as a human who got dipped in an FEV vat for an unusually long time, and emerged as a formless, tormented mass of flesh that expanded throughout the entire base, merging with its electronics and computer systems, and absorbing any other life form it found into itself, becoming a demented Hive Mind that viewed itself as a perfect being.

I Love Nuclear Power
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_555ff395
comment
I Love Nuclear Power: Both subverted and played straight. Most of the wildlife has been hideously mutated by the various mutagens, from bio-weapons to radiation. Take the Forced Evolutionary Virus for example. This mutagen which has itself been mutated by the radiation. Most mutated creatures in the game are that way because of radiation (radroaches, yao guai, radscorpions, giant rats, geckos, giant ants, ghouls — if it's basically a giant or slightly mutated version of a normal creature, radiation did it), while others are the result of deliberate (if not entirely according to plan) genetic engineering with or accidents stemming from FEV (super mutants, centaurs, floaters, wanamingos, deathclaws — if it barely resembles any real living creature, it's probably in this category). Certain perks give the player character various bonuses while being irradiated or while suffering from various degrees of radiation poisoning. These include health regeneration, increased strength and speed, and more Action Points (essentially faster reaction time). There was also a bug (or a feature?) in Fallout 1 and 2 that allowed your attributes to "mutate" (numbers changed, not always for the better, sometimes far far better) if you took extreme doses of radiation (near deadly levels) and then got cured after living with it for a while. Though it did not seem to "work" if you got cured by doctors. Only by using lots and lots of Rad Away.

The add-ons: Old World Blues lets you talk the villain into reforming, Dead Money lets you snare the villain in a Death Trap without fighting him, and Lonesome Road lets you talk down the final boss.

Critical Failure

Critical Failure: A prominent feature in the first two games. You can drop your weapon, lose your ammo, lose your turn, injure yourself, and so on. At the extreme end, energy weapons can blow up in your hands. This can also apply to non-combat skills, jamming locks and triggering traps. Oh, and the Jinxed trait in the first two games made it happen to everyone around you, which could make the early game very very challenging since every miss had a good chance of being a critical miss. You could, however, make up for most of the negative effects of the trait by having a high Luck Stat, and you furthermore chose Unarmed, which does not have very harsh punishments for failures, as your primary combat skill, you suddenly have a very effective character build.

Fantasy Counterpart Culture
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_57d43e40
comment
Fantasy Counterpart Culture: The most blatant is Caesar's Legion, which was modeled in-universe on The Roman Empire - and is sometimes hard to tell apart from the real thing. It also has some elements gleaned from ancient Sparta. The New California Republic is very much like the Pre-War United States mixed in with both the Roman Republic and the U.S. during the Wild West. The Shi Empire is pretty much Imperial China reborn. The Great Khans intentionally base themselves after the Mongolian Empire (which gets downplayed by the fact that horses have yet to be seen in this series), and can even be encouraged in New Vegas to take this more to heart in one of their endings. While probably not deliberate, Lyons' Brotherhood of Steel has a lot in common with early Prussia. Similarly, Arthur Maxson's Brotherhood is equal parts medieval Europe and the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, while the Institute are loosely inspired by both the Illuminati and Renaissance-era Italy. Also, the Commonwealth Minutemen are based on both Revolutionary America and the Iroquois Confederacy, and the Church of the Children of Atom are now essentially the Crusader States. Most can be justified at least marginally considering that the universe of Fallout is not based on some other world, but a divergence of our own world, so cultures would have tried to base themselves off of some kind of history in many cases. An inversion of sorts in some of the cultural inclusions as they end up based not on real world historical cultures, but fantasy sources, such as books or movies that were popular in or around the 1950's.

Hero of Another Story
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_581f6468
comment
Hero of Another Story: Many, but especially your companions. Harold, who has lived for over two centuries, been in every game but Tactics, New Vegas and 4, has wandered almost the entire United States Wasteland, was a fellow-adventurer with the Master before they were both mutated, and may eventually bring an ecosystem back to the Capital Wasteland, since he's now permanently rooted there. In New Vegas, all of the DLCs have a character who is this to some extent, and nearly all of them are (or at least presented as) antagonists at some point. In Dead Money and Lonesome Road Father Elijah and Ulysses respectively went on long incredible journeys involving post-war organizations, settlements, and tribes otherwise unmentioned in the series. In Honest Hearts there is Joshua Graham, who was formally both a Mormon missionary and the legate for Cesar's Legion. Dr. Mobius of Old World Blues was a prewar scientist and Brain in a Jar who eventually used SCIENCE! to prevent his former colleagues from ravaging the post-apocalyptic world. 4 gives not only the backstory of Conrad Kellogg, but also has several Apocalyptic Logs detailing the exploits of Paladin Brandis and Recon Squad Artemis. There's also the exploits of the Quincy refugees - Preston Garvey, Sturges, Mama Murphy, and Jun & Marcy Long - found in the Museum of Freedom at Concord near the beginning of the game. Terminals found scattered across the Commonwealth tell more of their struggles to survive after the Quincy Massacre.

Genius Ditz: In every game you can set your character's Intelligence so low they're incapable of speaking properly and can't understand what others are saying either. Doesn't stop you from using skill points to let them pick locks, hack computers, and be master doctors. It'll just take longer since lower Intelligence means fewer skill points.

All the main games allowed for a type of critical that would trigger if the target was struck while the player was undetected. Fallout 1, 2, and Tactics had the Silent Death perk, which would enable a critical when sneaking from behind, and only while unarmed, while Fallout 3 and New Vegas had automatic critical hits on attacks made while sneaking undetected.

The Resource Wars are one for the series as a whole. Between 2050 and 2077, conflicts in the mid-to-late 21st century broke out in response to the decline of oil. Major events include the U.S. destabilizing and invading Mexico, the collapse of the United Nations, the European Commonwealth invading the Middle East and waging war for eight years before pulling out when the wells dry up, which was followed up by a civil war; China invading Alaska, and the U.S. annexing Canada before retaking Anchorage and sending troops into mainland China. Justified since this took place over 200 years ago.

Central Theme: "War never Changes" the tagline of the entire series - that the reasons why people fight don't change, even when fighting is what destroyed the world in the first place. It's all about resources, ideology, and control. Another theme is purity, especially racial purity. With the exception of New Vegas and 4, every main game in the series featured a Big Bad who thought they knew what race was most suited for survival. For the Master, it was Super Mutants, for the Enclave, it was "pure (unmutated) humans".

Dump Stat
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_5d1eb74d
comment
Dump Stat: The exact usefulness of individual SPECIAL stats varies between games, but often a few are near useless. Fallout 4 mitigated these problems by tying SPECIAL stats directly to which Perks you can take, but earlier games had no such system. In the Black Isle games, Strength. A Strength of 5 gives respectable carry capacity and Hit Points and enables the use of most weapons, and if you ever need to pass a skill check you can just pop a Buffout for a temporary buff. Some BFGs require higher Strength to wield properly, but they're late-game weapons which are often Awesome, but Impractical. Also, Power Armor boosts Strength several points and both games let you receive an implant to boost it again, so by the time you get to the late game you'll have no problem wielding naything Across the series, Charisma. It only affects the Barter and Speech skills (a few extra skill points make up for low starting Speech), the Perks that use it are either poor or glitched and don't work, and it isn't needed for any critical skill checks. Fallout 2 ties Charisma to how many companions you can have, one for every two points of Charisma, but also added two ways to permanently boost Charisma and an item that also boosts it, so a starting Charisma of 3 is still enough to get a fair-sized party. In the Bethesda-era games, chugging alcohol will temporarily boost Charisma and there's the Bobblehead/Implant to boost it again, and you can get Grape Mentats (3) or craft Party Time Mentats (New Vegas), which temporarily boost Charisma by 5. Outside New Vegas, Luck was only useful for builds centering on Sniper. Otherwise all it gives are minor boosts to critical hit chance and an extra couple of points to all skills. A Luck of 6 is enough to take most Perks that need a Luck requirement, and Fallout 1 and 2 both have ways to permanently boost Luck by at least 1 point, so the starting 5 is fine. In terms of Skills, Throwing in the first two games. Grenades are Awesome, but Impractical in the Black Isle games, and aside from grenades there aren't many throwing weapons at all, and they usually suck anyway. Zigzagged with Unarmed in Fallout 2. While unarmed combat is a viable, if inefficient option, the player never needs to spend skill points on it — the game offers numerous ways to increase Unarmed by several points, and it's possible to get 100 points in it with no skill points. Played straight with Unarmed in the first Fallout, where there is no variety to unarmed attacks and only three weapons that use the skill. Barter. It only affects the price of objects you buy. You always sell your stuff at the same price. Money isn't really a problem in either game, making the usefulness of this skill debatable. First Aid. It just restores a couple of hit points in games where Stimpaks are not very rare. Furthermore the Doctor skill heals more, can heal crippled limbs, and is needed for quests and Perks; the only Perk needing skill in First Aid is Medic, which just boosts the stat further. Worse is that First Aid can be increased by skill books, which can be bought an unlimited time, meaning every stat point put in First Aid is effectively a waste.

Super Prototype: There's the T-60 Series of Powered Armor, which was invented just before the Great War as an upgrade of the T-45, and was ultimately intended to replace the T-51. It only saw limited deployment by the U.S. military, and despite overall mechanical superiority to the T-51b, the T-60 suffered from both a comparative cost of resources and lack of agility in battle, leaving the T-51b as the best Pre-War Power Armor series.

Bloody Hilarious: The main purpose of the Bloody Mess trait, which causes your enemies to die in the most horrific ways from even the lightest of death blows. At its best, your enemy may spontaneously be reduced to bloody chunks from being hit by a teddy bear. Fallout 3 made it helpful rather than merely amusing by tacking on a + 5% damage bonus. Even without Bloody Mess, you still get this effect from rare, good crits.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_608b26d

Uniqueness Decay: In the first Fallout, T-51 Power Armor was exclusive to the Brotherhood of Steel and getting into their base to talk them into giving you a suit was very difficult. In Fallout 2, T-51 Power Armor can be found in a couple late-game dungeons and there is the even stronger Advanced Power Armor. Fallout 3 introduced T-45 Power Armor and the Advanced Power Armor also returns, and there are unique variants of each as the T-51 being a unique Power Armor (with a variant added in a DLC). New Vegas has T-45 and T-51 armors with the Advanced Power Armor used by a small group of Enclave remnants and other pieces can rarely be found in the wasteland. Fallout 4 has suits of armor all over the Commonwealth due to the many military outposts and convoys that were in the area when the Great War began, and the T-45, T-51, the new T-60, and the Advanced Power Armor (now given the designation X-01) can be found everywhere, to the point even some Raider bosses have gotten their hands on old suits and jury-rigged their own armor plating for them. Fallout 76 has all that Fallout 4 did with even more variants and more new models, including the T-65.

We Have Reserves: The New California Republic defeated the Brotherhood Of Steel because the Brotherhood, being an elitist order, had too few members to conscript for troops. For years, they fought the war under the assumption that their technological superiority gave them the advantage, until it became clear that they were doomed because they could not replace their troops fast enough. The Institute also has this advantage. On the one hand, their vast Gen 1 & 2 Synth armies are individually weaker than humans and have weaker laser weapons than even those from the Pre-War days. However, that doesn't matter. Why? Because not only are the Institute The Conspiracy, but they can produce Gen 1 & 2 Synths by the veritable millions.

Gameplay and Story Segregation
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_6320eced

Gameplay and Story Segregation: Various issues specific to each game can be found on their pages. No matter how dangerous- or mutated-looking your henchmen are, NPCs will never react with the immediate violence that one might expect from bringing, say, an eight-foot-tall creature in an all-concealing robe (Goris) - or a giant yellow-green mutant with a gatling laser (Fawkes) - into their secret base/peaceful village. Up until Fallout 4, SPECIAL stats and Skills had no correlation besides the former giving a small boost to the latter. This allowed for the amusement of a character with a Charisma of 1 being able to max out Speech to be a slick smoothtalker, or a character with an Intelligence of 1 to max out Repair and Science to be a master craftsman and programmer.

Universal Ammunition: Justified with energy weapons, where the ammunition is essentially just batteries, and only a few different sizes exist. Averted for firearms, however. Various ammunition types exist in the game, and each gun will only fire ammunition it's chambered in. New Vegas extends this to include traditional "low power" civilian loads, such as using .38 Special in a .357, or .223 in a 5.56mm, provided the cartridge dimensions are near-identical. This mirrors reality as well.

Random Encounters: Happens whenever you travel across the map screen in Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics. Not all random encounters are hostile though, some are even beneficial, and with a high Outdoorsman skill you can circumvent most of them. Tactics is particularly annoying about this, as it activates a type of Rail Roading. You are likely to encounter something with each step if you traveled too far out of the way from your destination. Having a high outdoorsman skill allowed you to choose if you wanted to engage the encounters, but you'll be clicking "No" a hundred times just to get back to your base if you choose to explore the map.

comment
Progressively Prettier: Ghouls, the wasteland's most common species of humanoid mutants, have undergone this over the course of the series. In the original Interplay-era games, they looked like hunch-backed, bug-eyed zombies with melted-looking flesh and exposed bones. In Fallout 3 and New Vegas, they're proportioned like ordinary humans, but with flaky, rotting skin and bloodshot eyes. Come Fallout 4, they merely look like moderate-to-severe burn victims with blacked-out eyes, some even having full heads of hair. Interestingly, this is reversed for the animalistic "feral" ghouls, who went from being identical to regular ghouls in the early games to emaciated, skinless husks in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, and then freakish, deformed zombies riddled with cancerous growths in Fallout 4.

Instant A.I.: Just Add Water!: At least one in each game... ZAX in Fallout, SKYNET (no, not that SKYNET) in Fallout 2, and President Eden (also of the ZAX series) in Fallout 3. Interestingly, ZAX and SKYNET are mostly benevolent (although it's suggested SKYNET is not to be entirely trusted), while Eden ends up as the game's Big Bad. At the end of Fallout Tactics, after defeating a army of cold, merciless robots and exploding the front door of Vault 0 with a nuke, you came face to face with the Calculator, a super-powerful AI that's pretty much Instant AI, except you had to add... brains. Human brains, if possible, but rat brains worked as well. Some other robots are also powered like that, like the Robobrains, SKYNET and Protectrons.

Giant Robot: Surprisingly uncommon. But there are a few. Fallout 3/4: Liberty Prime. Fallout Tactics features a few as enemies towards the end of the game. Best dispatched at long range with volleys of plasma/laser fire.

A good example of both instances occurs in the Old World Blues DLC for New Vegas. The Think Tank were experimenting with a procedure to remove a subject's brain and replace it with a Tesla coil, yet retain their personality and memories. Unfortunately a technical glitch in their Autodoc caused the procedure to destroy the minds of all the test subjects, until the Courier's unique bullet-scarred brain forces it to reboot back to its original settings, preventing them from becoming a Lobotomite.

Corporate warfare between soda brands. Starting with New Vegas, old terminal entries can be found detailing the Nuka-Cola Corporation's attempts to monopolize the American soda market while covering up their comically shady business practices. Sunset Sarsaparilla was among their few major competitors, but they struggled to do so amid health code violations and lawsuits. Fallout 4's DLC introduces the underdog brand Vim!, localized almost entirely within Maine and besieged on all sides by Nuka-Cola's sabotage, espionage, and copyright infringement. The fact that all this drama was rendered utterly meaningless by the apocalypse is the icing on the cake.

Iconic Outfit: Each game has one, typically depicted in the cover art of the game. Fallout 1 and Fallout 76 have the T-51b Power Armor. Fallout 2 has the Enclave Advanced Power Armor Mk2. Fallout 3 has the T-45d Power Armor. New Vegas has the NCR Veteran Ranger Armor. Fallout 4 has the T-60 Power Armor. The Silver Shroud costume also counts as this, albeit from an In-Universe perspective. Additionally, all games except Tactics and Brotherhood of Steel give the main characters Vault jumpsuits as their default attire, and they're typically depicted wearing armored versions of them in cutscenes and artwork.

Idiot Hero
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_7289b368
comment
The first two games (and, to an extent, New Vegas) deconstruct the Idiot Hero. True, generating a hero with an Intelligence score of 3 or less makes you have hilarious conversations with the world; but you get fewer skill points from leveling-up, you are locked out of about 90% of the quests, and most of the NPCs don't give you anything for your efforts and treat you like a joke. Furthermore, an Idiot Hero can't really make a lasting impact on the Wasteland in general. Sure, you save your hometown, but everyone else is pretty much screwed.

In the second game, you have a spear, a knife, a handful of cash, and whatever you have leftover after the Temple of Trials. But your village is a primitive tribe, search the huts and you'll realize there's nothing of value they can offer. A couple sidequests allow you to pick up some more healing items and a better spear than you start with before you leave.

Arc Words: "War. War never changes." No matter the state of the world or civilization, humanity will always be driven to war with itself again, and always for the same fundamental reasons; resources, greed, ideology, etc. Lonesome Road amends the saying to "war never changes, but men can." "Life in x is about to change" appears with rather satisfying regularity. For 1, x was "the Vault" and in Tactics it's "the Brotherhood". In an alternative intro to 2 (that is hidden in the game files), it was 'Arroyo'. The official Penny Arcade comic has "The Vaults were never meant to save anyone," which fans have adopted as an unofficial tagline of the series. "Total atomic annihilation" appears frequently in the more recent games, such as Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, though mostly in the promotional materials.

Scavenger World: It's a post-apocalyptic series, it goes without saying. That said, it's not like scavenging is the only thing people do, and there are several communities dedicated to rebuilding and creating things anew. In Fallout 2, New Vegas, and 4, many parts of the Wasteland have actually become quite civilized again.

Arcology: The vaults themselves. Officially, the vaults were nuclear shelters designed to protect the American population from nuclear holocaust. However, with a population of almost 400 million by 2077, the U.S. would need nearly 400,000 vaults the size of Vault 13, while Vault-Tec was commissioned to build only 122 such vaults, plus a demo vault. The government, and Vault-Tec, never really believed an atomic war would occur; the real reason for the existence of these vaults was to run social experiments on pre-selected segments of the population to see how they react to the stresses of isolation and how successfully they recolonize Earth (or another planet) after the vault opens. Seventeen vaults were the control and worked as advertised; the rest had a deliberate experimental flaw. Some of these experiments were understandable (from a sociological viewpoint), while others were 'mad science' to begin with. Here is a full list of (known) vaults and the experiment conducted.

Absurdly Dedicated Worker: Many robots in the series continue to (try to) carry out tasks assigned to them in the prewar years, completely unaware that over a hundred years have passed since America was devastated by nuclear war and their old masters are long dead. One notable example is a Mr. Handy in downtown Washington D.C. that still makes a daily trip to the local market down the street and reads bedtime stories to the charred remains of the children of its owner.

The Ageless

The Ghouls may make third degree burn victims look pretty, but they are immune to radiation, can't die from old age, and can seemingly enter a sort of hibernation where they don't need food, water, or even air. In fact, if they were able to breed they might be considered an improvement over humanity. Sadly, some ghouls seem prone to eventually degenerate into a 'feral' condition that reduces them to a (hostile) ape-like level of intelligence. In Fallout 2, you can stumble across a ghoul who was Buried Alive in the cemetery outside New Reno. He complains that it took you long enough. In New Vegas, you encounter a group of ghouls who plan on leaving for their lethally-radioactive "promised land" to escape persecution from humans. In Fallout 4, you can discover Billy, a Ghoul boy who has been trapped in a fridge for 210 years (he used it as a way to take shelter from the bombs, but got stuck)

Eagleland
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_7a17d1ca
comment
Eagle Land: The Pre-War United States depicted itself as beautiful but in fact was heavily boorish. Fallout is one of the very few cases in Western media in which the USA is actually depicted as being outright villainous; the Pre-War government was an Orwellian nightmare that makes the real-world Soviet Union look positively warm and fuzzy in comparison, and their successors, the Enclave, are even worse. Most frightening of all; given the nightmare the world was becoming on the eve of the Great War, it's not much of a stretch to think the United States became the way it was out of the need to survive the Resource Wars. When nations are annihilating each other over what few resources still exist on a global scale, looking out for your own country and people at the expense of all others becomes a grim necessity. However, it's implied in some of the historical documents that the U.S was rotting from the inside long before the Resource Wars, possibly as early as the Space Race.

Politically Correct History
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_7e74d66f
comment
Politically Correct History: Downplayed. Despite the culture of the pre-war world being based on 1950s United States, no Fallout title contains any solid evidence that racism, sexism, or LGBTQ+ discrimination existed in that time, and no one in the post-war world shows any signs of prejudice in such a manner. New Vegas has Caesar's Legion which does not allow women to serve in the military (and uses them heavily as slave labor), but such a stance is not based on sexist attitudes according to Word of God, and while the NCR is implied to frown on homosexuality, it isn't stated outright and in-context may not necessarily mean they disapprove of it. May be justified by the fact that even if the series' pre-war culture is based on the 1950s, the Great War happened in 2078 — it's plausible that over the intervening century, such attitudes faded from society even if other 50s values didn't.

Vague Age: Averted with the protagonists of Fallout 1, 2, and 3; the Vault Dweller and Chosen One's ages can be specified in character creation, and the Lone Wanderer is stated in-game to be 19 years old when he/she leaves Vault 101. Played straight with New Vegas and 4, where even though character creation allows the Courier and the Sole Survivor to look however he/she wants (even elderly), their ages aren't explicitly stated in-game outside of a few (often vague) hints.

Look on My Works, Ye Mighty, and Despair!
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_7f3e75b6
comment
Look on My Works, Ye Mighty, and Despair!: An underlying theme of the game. Especially prevalent in Fallout 3, where you see the ruins of Washington D.C. Several landmarks are crumbling shadows of what they once were. The White House is simply gone. And it's eerie and nearly empty despite a few survivors and a plethora of things (human or otherwise) that want to kill you. On the other hand, the fact that these landmarks are still standing at all after dozens of direct atomic bombings followed by 200 years of neglect is indicative of the opposite trope. Also happens in New Vegas if you don't ally with Mr. House, from his perspective. He singlehandedly saved Las Vegas from the nuclear apocalypse with his technology and foresight and left it one of the few civilised places left in the entire post-war United States, but he couldn't have predicted that people in the future would take it away from him (either the NCR or Caesar's Legion remove him from the picture and seize the city for themselves or his own underlings betray him and take over - what Benny hoped to do and what can you end up doing).

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: In Fallout 2 a special random encounter sends you back in time to Vault 13 shortly before the beginning of the first game... where you do a nice job breaking their water chip. You cannot return to your own time without doing so. Pre-War America decided, sometime before 1969, divided the states between 13 commonwealths. They hoped that this new layer of bureaucracy would benefit states with common regional concerns, but wouldn't affect those states with dissimilar interests or political cultures, helping strengthen the country as a whole against the threat of communism. Instead, the commonwealths began viciously competing against one-another, only weakening the US as a whole. This served to be the first in a long line of decisions that turned America into an Orwellian Police State.

Art Major Biology
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_82860842
comment
Art Major Biology: As well as Art Major Physics. Don't expect realistic science in this series. It's inspired by pulp sci-fi after all, so this trope is deliberately Invoked: Radiation in particular works considerably differently in the Fallout universe than in reality. For starters, while Fallout has radiation sickness, it's also capable of causing genetic mutations that are directly integrated into a creature's biology, leading to creatures like radscorpions, stingwings, and bloatflies. In reality, radiation simply damages DNA, causing it to replicate improperly and causing the body to function incorrectly. (Although, there are theories in-universe that the mutations are not caused by radiation alone, but none of them are confirmed or denied.) Also, in Fallout, simple hazard suits are shown to significantly or completely block radiation when worn, while in real life, the only way to block radiation is to place enough matter between you and the source to physically block the rays. A suit that truly protects you from gamma radiation would be too heavy to move in (although, in 3 and New Vegas, you can only have so much radiation resistance, about 85%, and in 4 1000%+ RR stil lets in 0.5 Rads. This also leads to a Posthumous Character in NV who thought that the old hazmat suit he found let him No-Sell radiation dying from radiation poisoning, all the while blaming his symptoms on food poisoning). The radiation aspect is actually zigzagged (or at least played with). Aside from being Invoked because of the ubiquity of the Nuclear Nasty, there was also a struggle between the original designers; one designer exclusively attributed the mutation not to the radiation, but to the Forced Evolutionary Virus, a mutagenic Synthetic Plague that the US government was cooking up to facilitate bio-engineering projects before the war; when the bunkers containing F.E.V got blown up, the virus was scattered across the world and caused the mutations. The other designer hated this idea, because they felt this undermined the setting's Zeerust aesthetic. The generally accepted compromise is that all of the mutants stem from a cocktail of both radiation and F.E.V. Lampshaded in Fallout 76, where an audio log from a Free States doctor notes that the rampant biological mutation makes absolutely no sense, and she is certain that this has to stem from sources other than radiation, because radiation doesn't work like this.

Humanoid Abomination: Frank Horrigan, the genetically engineered synthetic cyborg homocidal maniac specially created by the Enclave, who is forever sealed in a suit of power armor that continually pumps him with life support.

The Cloud apparently changed normal human beings into feral, nocturnal, gas proof, limb-regenerating, and hard to kill abominations sealed in hazmat suits, with their only purpose now being to stab, throw spears, and chuck bombs. The Church of the Children of Atom also seem to be this, as they look like completely ordinary humans but can survive ungodly amounts of radiation.

Reality Is Unrealistic: Radiation poisoning is the one condition in the series which must be treated, since it doesn't go away on its own. In real life, radiation sickness is like the common cold: the body heals itself. There are some treatments of minor value, such as the use of steroids to boost the healing process, but assuming you survive the original exposure, radiation sickness eventually goes away on its own.

comment
Eldritch Abomination: Prolonged FEV exposure can mess you up in an impressive manner. The Master began as a human who got dipped in an FEV vat for an unusually long time, and emerged as a formless, tormented mass of flesh that expanded throughout the entire base, merging with its electronics and computer systems, and absorbing any other life form it found into itself, becoming a demented Hive Mind that viewed itself as a perfect being. There's also a number of Cryptic Background References, most (but not all) involving Dunwich Borers LLC, that suggest several truly Lovecraftian abominations exist in the world. Not mutant results of the Great War, but the real deal: vile, possibly genuinely magical entities pre-dating human civilization itself.

Living Relic: Despite the nuclear annihilation and the 210+ years that have passed since then, there are still several characters that serve as living remnants of Pre-War America. There are a significant number of Pre-War ghouls (most prominently Desmond Lockhart from Point Lookout, Raul Tejada from New Vegas, Dean Domino from Dead Money, The Vault-Tec Representative from 4), a handful of sentient computers (ZAX, SKYNET, Button Gwinnett (possibly), and President John Henry Eden), a few Brains In A Jar (Professor Calvert, the Think Tank, and Jezebel), and a few Pre-War individuals who were preserved in suspended animation (Mr. House, the Tranquility Lane inhabitants, the prisoners aboard Mothership Zeta, and the Sole Survivor in the fourth game). Of them all, most have either adapted to the new world (in the case of the Ghouls), or are cripplingly insane (in the case of Calvert and the Think Tank), with only Mr. House and President Eden really holding onto the vision of Pre-War America and trying to restore it in the Wasteland in their own way.

Plasma Cannon
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_8a8c7344
comment
Plasma Cannon: Plasma weapons are high-end energy weapons. In the first two games, the Glock 86 Plasma Pistol and Winchester P94 Plasma Rifle (stretching the definition of rifle, being held like a heavy weapon) filled the role. In Fallout 3, a completely new style of plasma weaponry was introduced, using an Raygun Gothic styling and visibly showing the plasma arcs in the firing chambers. This latter style was retconned/reconciled in Fallout New Vegas as being a more standard-issue-practical plasma weapon compared to the pre-Fallout 3 versions that never made it past prototyping before the Great War. In game terms, the Fallout 3-style weapons were lower-tier, and the (renamed) Fallout 1-style weapons were higher-tier. In New Vegas, you can even find the Super Prototype of the Fallout 3-style rifle, the Q-35 Matter Modulator.

Luck Stat: Puts the L in SPECIAL. Atypically for RPGs, it's actually a quantification of one's ability to calculate and manipulate probability; Mr. House, who was able to predict the exact day (and, very nearly, the exact hour) of the Great War, has 10 Luck. Increases your chances at critical hits, positive Random Encounters and all sorts of other nice things. In New Vegas, one dialogue option for characters with high enough Luck lets you successfully guess a password off the top of your head. And it's not even "swordfish". Another lets you perform brain surgery with a tiny fraction of the Medicine skill you'd need otherwise. Getting it up to 8 or 9 will allow you to clean house at the Blackjack tables.

Deconstruction

comment
Deconstruction The first two games (and, to an extent, New Vegas) deconstruct the Idiot Hero. True, generating a hero with an Intelligence score of 3 or less makes you have hilarious conversations with the world; but you get fewer skill points from leveling-up, you are locked out of about 90% of the quests, and most of the NPCs don't give you anything for your efforts and treat you like a joke. Furthermore, an Idiot Hero can't really make a lasting impact on the Wasteland in general. Sure, you save your hometown, but everyone else is pretty much screwed. The entire series is a deconstruction of the supposed "moral purity" of The '50s, showing exactly what would happen if the Moral Guardians who say this had their way and the actual 1950's continued forever.

Virtually nothing is known about the world outside of North America; the vast majority of characters in the series are either from North America, were in it when the bombs fell and survived through mutation, or are long-dead by the time the player "encounters" them. The only characters outright confirmed to have travelled to the continent post-war are Allistair Tenpenny and Colin Moriarity from the British Isles, the former refusing to talk about his origins and the latter outright lying about them, claiming to have been born and raised in the D.C. area despite his thick accent.

Skippable Boss: Thanks to Fallout's commitment to "multiple solutions," there are several. This includes the Lieutenant and the Master in the first game, General Jingwei and Colonel Augustus Autumn in the third, Legate Lanius, Father Elijah, the Think Tank and Ulysses in New Vegas, and Swan and Oswald the Outrageous in the fourth. Subverted now and then: Frank Horrigan in the second game will only let you get out over his dismembered corpse, and Kellogg even lampshades the series' tendency for this to happen before starting combat. Check the particular game pages for more details.

Soviet Superscience: Surprisingly inverted. Based upon what precious little we've seen of Chinese Pre-War technology, it wasn't the communists who had the advanced tech. While the Chinese were beginning to close the technological gap by the end of the war, their only real achievements were invisibility fields and simplistic combat drones. The US, by comparison, had developed three generations of Power Armor and deployed two, created efficient and reliable laser and early generation plasma weaponry, intelligent domestic robots, intelligent combat robots, and cold fusion batteries, the latter of which made all the others possible. The U.S. had invaded Mainland China and was on the verge of an overwhelming victory when the nukes launched.

Flawed Prototype: The T-45 Series of Powered Armor. Rushed into production and service, it burned through energy cells like popcorn, and was overall ungainly to use. Only later versions, like the T-45d, included a proper fusion cell for extended use, and was soon rendered obsolete anyway by the T-51b, which had more responsive actuators and a fusion cell powerplant as part of the design from the start.

Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_8d6c8737
comment
Insurmountable Waist-Height Fence: Appears in most of the games. Fallout 1 and 2 were in the era of game interfaces where such fences were the norm. Fallout 3 made certain piles of concrete debris 'insurmountable' to force you to detour through tunnel zones, though equally high piles out in the open countryside could readily be scaled. Fallout: New Vegas has some particularly lazy examples of this; the overworld is cut into cells to ease loading times, and one can only transit between cells at passes. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell this to the designers who made the visual landscapes, meaning the Courier is often unable to climb two-degree slopes at the edges of cells. In particularly buggy areas such as the area around Nelson, the Courier can end up several dozen feet off the ground by skimming a cell edge.

The two most "evil" factions of the canon, the Enclave and the Legion, are stand-out examples. Both are ruthless, mass-murdering organizations, with the former plotting genocide against all Wastelanders and the latter raping and pillaging across vast swaths of the American Southwest. However, both point out that the Wasteland is, in most places, a terrifying hellhole teeming with psychotic killers and vicious mutants. The leaders of both groups believe that the end will justify their means, bringing peace and civilization to an otherwise horrific Crapsack World.

Cargo Cult: An interesting version of this was slated to appear in Van Buren; the Ciphers. The tribe was descended from a group of scientists and soldiers from Los Alamos after the Great War, but the original survivors did not have enough resources to actually rebuild like other factions eventually would. Instead, using what pre-War tech they had managed to bring with them, the scientists imparted enormous amounts of mathematics and technology schematics to their descendants, who became experts at fixing and maintaining pr-War technology, even though they mostly live as your average Wasteland tribals. The tribe has passed down the knowledge they had been taught, but only know HOW things work, not WHY it works, and even use wall paintings to write their knowledge down.

Absurdly High Level Cap: Skills in 2 and Tactics cap at 300%, and 200% in the first installment, though for most of them 100% is all you need (and for the others, like combat-related skills, you tend to stop getting benefits from them just before 150%.) 4 has no hard level cap, but to get every perk and fully upgrade every SPECIAL stat, you'll need to be level 272 (264 if you find the eight in-game SPECIAL boosts).

They're also immortal unless they die by violence, which provides a strong incentive to avoid it.

Artificial Stupidity
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_940a5958
comment
Artificial Stupidity: In the first two games companions will liberally use burst weapons and grenades if they have them and are able to use them; the former is very likely to kill you if you're in the way, and the latter, no companion has the Throwing skill needed to use grenades without dropping them at their own feet, not even the companions who are supposed to be good at it. On the plus side, enemies with burst weapons and explosives will gladly tear their own allies to shreds trying to hit you. Additionally, throughout the series enemies may use explosives like grenades and rocket launchers at point-blank range, hurting themselves as well as you. In the Bethesda-era games, companions cannot jump over any obstacle. If you jump up or down a cliffside, they will take the long way around, and if they find an enemy along the way they will engage it alone and possibly die if it's a dangerous encounter. In the Bethesda-era games, "stealth" is not in any companion's vocabulary. They will enter Sneak mode and sneak with you, but the second they spot an enemy they charge in guns blazing. Fallout 4 makes them slightly less prone to run into combat when you're in Sneak, but they tend to wander around and not make much effort to be stealthy, which will probably draw the enemy's attention (though at least the enemy will not be alerted to you if your companion provokes them). The only real way to be sneaky is to have companions wait out of the way and go it alone. NPCs universally suffer from Suicidal Overconfidence and will eagerly run into combat with a dozen enemies, even if at a glance the player could tell they wouldn't survive to see their next turn for it. Due to some glitchy programming with how enemies handle aggro, it's possible to accidentally hit a friendly NPC while trying to shoot an enemy, and as a result your companions will presume you see them as an enemy and attack them, or the hit NPC will turn their attention to fighting you. Fight in towns with allies and enemies scattered between innocent bystanders, a single stray bullet hitting a civilian because they ran between you and the enemy could result in you having to massacre the town in self-defense. In Fallout 2, if your stats are high enough, some enemies will flee combat from you. Then when you end combat, they will slowly walk back to where they were at the start of combat, likely triggering combat again. No choice to break the loop but shoot them dead. NPCs have no sense of moderation at all when it comes to combat, and will always use the most powerful weapon you gave them that has ammo. This is particularly annoying when giving your companions grenades or mines (so that you don't have to haul them around yourself) and they wind of throwing them at one-hit-point nuisances like radroaches.

Riddle for the Ages
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_96a33f11
comment
Riddle for the Ages: Who started The Great War? Was it the United States, China, Russia, Vault-Tec, rogue AIs? There's even a hint it might have been aliens. There's never been any concrete evidence to prove who it was, just hints and nudges that are circumstantial and/or come from biased and untrustworthy sources. It's dubious we'll ever know for sure, since most characters who would know it are dead and most records that would reveal the answer are lost. It's heavily implied it was the Chinese who fired first, which would make sense in-canon, but it isn't confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt.note All the evidence that directly points the finger at China is either unreliable or simultaneously presents evidence to cast doubt on the claim. Regardless, many characters espouse it ultimately doesn't matter who fired first, the world burned in nuclear fire all the same, and the global superpowers that were responsible are a long-dead distant memory.

Armed with Canon: When Chris Avellone, who began his involvement in the series as a designer on Fallout 2, got promoted to lead designer for Fallout: Van Buren, he used his semi-official Universe Bible as the basis for much of the plot, allowing him to retcon and handwave aspects of previous games that he disliked. After the game's cancellation, these decisions were rendered mostly non-canon.

comment
Hilariously, in 2 the Salvatore gang are deeply feared for their exclusive use of laser weapons and one NPC relates a single Salvatore goon with a laser pistol once massacred a whole group of people armed with ordinary gunpowder weapons. However if you start a gunfight while wearing metal armour in the Salvatore bar the supposedly unstoppable thugs toting laser pistols do hardly anything to you - the biggest threat in the room is the bartender toting ye olde double-barrelled shotgun.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_970c790a
comment
The first game has its Big Bad, the Master, who is kidnapping innocent people and forcibly turning them into Super Mutants to serve in his army. His reason? He sees this as a necessary step to take for humanity to survive, and thrive, in the post-war world. Explaining the flaws of his plan will actually cause him to take a step back and seriously reconsider it.

Pacifist Run: While possible in nearly all games in the series, they tend more towards being a Technical Pacifist run, as many of them have points where certain characters must die to progress the story; players will typically have to arrange for these characters to be killed by other NPCs.

Killer Robot: Robots in general are fairly homicidal in this series, but special mention has to go to Cerberus, guard dog of the Ghoul city Underworld. He will extol the virtues of his Ghoul masters, then curse the "pansy zombie programming" which prevents him from slaughtering them. If you have the Robotics Expert perk, you can remove his combat inhibitor. Hilarity Ensues, since Cerberus by himself can slaughter the entire population unaided in some cases. Of course, he'll try to kill you given the chance, too, but he's not that strong compared to you.

What Measure Is a Non-Human?
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_9c45b5a2
comment
What Measure Is a Non-Human?: Explored throughout the series is treatment of non-human races, such as Ghouls, robots/A.I.s, and Super Mutants. The fourth game's story centers around this in regards to synths, Institute-made artificial humans created as spies, assassins, and slave labor. Synths are so incredibly life-like in appearance and biology that they are practically indistinguishable from humans, such that there are synths that don't even realize they are synths and think themselves flesh-and-blood humans! Because the Institute likes to switch people in the Commonwealth with synths, there is mass paranoia over them, to the point where family will turn their guns on each other at the mere suspicion that they have been replaced with a synth. The Institute consider synths little more than machines, no more human-like than a Mister Handy robot, and treat them as machines. The Brotherhood of Steel consider synths a danger to humanity and seek their complete eradication. The Railroad, meanwhile, consider synths to be people and seek to liberate them (and even then, that's only taking into account the lifelike Gen 3 synths: there is internal debate over whether earlier and more primitive Gen 1 and Gen 2 synths count as people).

Dirty Communists
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_9c47b23b
comment
Dirty Communists: Going by Pre-War propaganda, the entire nation of China. Most modern-day humans no longer have any idea what 'communism' is, why it was bad, and what difference it really made in the long run. Military robots, however, remain rabid anti-communists: Liberty Prime figures anyone who gets the receiving end of one of his nuclear footballs is a communist, regardless of what he's actually fighting. Then again, that just makes it better. Ironically enough, many smaller communities across post-war America tend to function as communist collectives, with capitalism and trade only emerging in the more prosperous, productive communities. This tends to mirror reality, where smaller communities with limited resources tend towards a more "do what you can, take what you need" philosophy for the sake of survival. However, the use of currency persists through bottle caps and most settlements have a merchant for the player character to trade with. So the most basic elements of capitalism are still prominent in post-war America. No-Bark Noonan seems to have an idea of who Lenin at least was and feared that the ghouls in a nearby factory were actually Communist ghosts plotting to deface the moon. A handful of surviving ghoulified Chinese communists remain on U.S soil, still intent on carrying out their mission (as seen in Fallout 3). Hell, they're still running an anti-American propaganda radio broadcast ala Tokyo Rose.

Hide Your Children
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_9c495599
comment
Hide Your Children: Completely averted in Fallout 1 and Fallout 2. Kids are a regular part of the civilian population, and you can freely blow them away in a variety of gruesome ways. The game even produces funny * wink* * wink* * nudge* * nudge* combat dialogue if you do so. Further, in one town, you are practically encouraged to do so, as the little bastards hang around in front of quest-critical stores and attempt to pickpocket you (and no matter how high your steal skill, it's nigh-impossible for you to take what they have back; you have to buy them from the merchant they report to). Note, however, that actually killing children will mark you as a "Child Killer," which causes pretty much everyone except the most evil characters to hate you on sight. This was taken literally in the European releases of both games, in which the children were simply made invisible (they're still there - they will steal from you and occasionally say things and can be killed with explosives). Fallout 3, though, used the "children are present but invulnerable" variant (though you can at one point help a slaver kidnap one and sell another into slavery yourself).

comment
Nuclear Nasty: Invoked and Zigzagged. The games are crawling with all manner of hideous, unnaturally mutated plants and animals, because that's part of the Zeerust post-apocalytica aesthetic. However, the mutations actually stem at least in part from a mutagenic Synthetic Plague called the Forced Evolutionary Virus, although the ratio of F.E.V to radiation is uncertain and was the subject of creator dispute. Certain species, such as the ubiquitous Deathclaws and the Fallout 2'-exclusive Wanamingos, were actually experiments in bio-engineered Living Weapons conducted by the US Government before the bombs dropped, and managed to survive in the wasteland; Fallout: New Vegas also has mutant monsters engineered by the Mad Scientist Think Tank of the Big Empty, including the rattlesnake/coyote Nightstalkers and the Cazadores, gigantic tarantula hawk wasps.

comment
Eye Scream: Eyes can be targeted in the first two games. Get your accuracy with any weapon class up to a high enough level, and shots to the eyes can and will solve most of your combat-related problems. Eyeballs are part of the burst of gore that follows a head-shot in Fallout 3, and if a critical hit to the head is scored they will fly out at high speed, sometimes hilariously towards the camera in VATS mode. Lampshaded by one character's combat taunts: "There's nothing wrong with you that a critical to the eyes won't cure."

Different States of America

comment
Different States of America: In the Fallout universe, prior to the Great War, the United States reincorporated the 50 states into 13 Commonwealths in 1969, in emulation of the original 13 colonies, and to help the country present a more united front against Communism. They had a secondary purpose of creating an intermediate body between the state and federal governments, creating legislation that would positively affect individual blocs without interfering with others, but it ultimately ended up causing more infighting as the commonwealths fought to gain national primacy at the expense of all the others.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_a4916876
comment
Blown Across the Room: Most guns simply poke holes in enemies until they fall down, but the Gauss Rifle from Operation Anchorage will send enemies flying on a critical hit. It's a good idea to knock the particularly tough enemies down to render them temporarily out of action. Plus, sending giant scorpions flying around ass over teakettle is hilarious. In the original two games, certain critical hits with most weapons will blow enemies (or you!) right off their feet and send them tumbling across the room, sometimes knocking them unconscious. In Fallout 4, if you're Too Dumb to Live and try to fire a weapon like a Fat Boy without power armor, you'll end up Blown Across the Room in Ludicrous Gibs.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_a5596c12
comment
I Want My Jet Pack: Nuclear cars were a big thing in the 50's, and were thought to be replacing gas-powered ones. They obviously didn't work out. The retro-future of Fallout began to gradually phase out gas engines in favor of miniature reactors in the mid-2070s, because by that point the world's supply of gasoline was nearly exhausted. This is a major part of the backstory - the Resource Wars that eventually led to the whole nuclear apocalypse were fought over petroleum, and uranium once the world's petroleum was depleted. In the first two Fallout games nuclear-powered vehicles were extremely rare, with most vehicle wrecks you find being of conventional, non-explodey gasoline-powered cars. Nuclear-powered cars were presumably more common on the East Coast because either the factory producing them was closer or they were simply more widely distributed there, although the most likely explanation is simple Rule of Cool.

In the third game, however, it loses a little of its luster as all forms of it - excluding the Infinity Plus One Armor - decrease Agility, which is the primary statistic for VATS. Other armor types nearly match the T-51b in protection, while being far lighter. The Operation Anchorage DLC fixed this unintentionally with the glitched Winterized T-51b, which is essentially indestructible in addition to having the highest damage reduction available: Broken Steel also added Enclave Hellfire armor, which doesn't have the Agility penalty.

Subsystem Damage
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_a6653039
comment
Subsystem Damage: Fallout 1 and 2 have locational targeting for both robots and living things (for example: The head, eyes, torso, arms, groin, and legs on anthropoids.) Accuracy, damage, and critical hits are affected by which body part is attacked, but the health of individual body parts aren't tracked. Attacking some extremities will result in an injury (limp, blindness, etc?) which can't be healed without the services of a surgeon. Fallout 3, on the other hand, does track damage to body parts, though there are no adverse effects until they have been entirely crippled. Crippled arms decrease accuracy, crippled legs decrease running speed, a crippled head causes a concussion halo effect, and a crippled torso amplifies all subsequent damage. They can simply be healed with stimpaks (which your average player tends to stockpile, but your average NPC doesn't) or by sleeping in any bed. This becomes a life saver when fighting Deathclaws, giant lizards with machete-sized claws, as you can cripple their legs with ease by using the Dart Gun to slow them down to a crawl. Hardcore mode for Fallout: New Vegas uses the same body part hit point system as Fallout 3, but makes recovery much harder: limb damage can only be repaired partially by certain items (the uncommon, but craftable, Doctor's Bag, and the addictive chem Hydra) or entirely by an NPC doctor or a bed the player owns. With Hardcore disabled, gameplay is the same as Fallout 3. Although item health has been removed for most weapons and armor, Powered Armor in Fallout 4 still has item health for each of its 6 individual armor segments: the helmet, the torso, and the 4 limbs. If any of the parts drops below a certain amount of health, the Heads-Up Display will show that particular part in red instead of orange.

 Fallout (Video Game) / int_a7850fbf
comment
Only Known by Their Nickname: Player characters across the series. Games occasionally include the option for you to mention your name in dialogue, but in the Bethesda-era entries, for obvious reasons (ie, all NPCs are voiced) no one will ever refer to you by name. The first game never gave you a name or nickname, but games since have dubbed the player character of the first game is "The Vault Dweller". The second game, you're "The Chosen One", but no one outside your tribe refers to you this way and will be amused if you say that it's your title. In Tactics, you're only known as "The Warrior". In (the mercifully forgotten) Brotherhood of Steel, you're the Initiatenote Though in that game you choose between three pre-made characters named Nadia, Cain and Cyrus. Fallout 3, Three Dog dubs you "The Lone Wanderer" but no one else uses the term. New Vegas flips this, as you're "The Courier" to everyone except Mr. New Vegas, who just refers to you as an anonymous civilian contractor or courier. Fallout 4 is an interesting case; you're given the option to actually name your character, but only one NPC in the entire game actually refers to you with it, and to everyone else you're the "Sole Survivor," "the Vault Dweller," or "Blue."

Alternate History
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_a86069f
comment
Alternate History: The Fallout timeline diverges from the real world some time between the end of World War II and the early sixties. Without the invention of the transistor, the social, political, and technological status quo of The '50s endured well into the late 21st century. The changes are minor at first but continue to cascade as the decades go by. Briefly: rather than progressing to thermonuclear bombs, the military focuses on smaller-yield atom bombs to increase their tactical utility. The space race unrolls differently (although the first moon landing is off by only a few days.) Federal power snowballs as the military-industrial complex takes over entirely. The states are rebuilt into 13 'commonwealths.' Communism continues to thrive in China (Russia, though still Communist, seems to play a minor role.) A-bombs are joined by practical laser, gauss, and plasma-projection technology. Foreseeing trouble, the US commissions private industries (notably Vault-Tec) to construct bunkers that will allow at least some Americans to survive the warnote (and for... other reasons). Through the mid-21st century, struggles over resources erupt into wars, leading to wars between a united Europe and the Arabian states. This is followed by a larger dispute between China and the US over oil; at least one significant battle fought on the Moon (at the Sea of Tranquility); the invasion of Alaska; the US annexing Canada; and, finally, unlimited atomic war. Eighty years later, Fallout 1 begins. Despite the significant changes, some aspects of American pop-culture seem to have progressed relatively unchanged, or at least diverged at a later date. Conversations in Fallout 2 mention the existence of "Rocket Man" by Elton John directly by name, and one NPC comments how he remembered seeing the same movie after you directly quote Silence of the Lambs. There's also the Kings in New Vegas, who wouldn't be who they are if Elvis Presley didn't exist. To say nothing of the music and credited artists that Galaxy Radio and Radio New Vegas play on your Pipboy.

Mega-Corp: A number of these existed in Pre-War America, including Poseidon Energy and REPCONN, with some of them in time becoming part of the Enclave. After the Great War however, a number of new businesses had risen to become the post-apocalyptic equivalent to those old corporations. One example being the Gun Runners, who had become the premier arms manufacturer for the New California Republic by New Vegas.

Disaster Democracy: The Enclave, a descendant from the pre-war American government claims to be this, but they're really not much better than a tyrannical dictatorship trying to enforce their rule over the wasteland. The NCR is a better, more noble example, especially by the time of New Vegas. However, they're generally handicapped by the bureaucracy and red tape that plague most democracies while their overambitious expansionist policies leave them with a lot of enemies.

Fate Worse than Death
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_b1346878
comment
Fate Worse than Death: This has been the case since the first game and was used for its Talking the Monster to Death option. The handful of talking Super Mutant NPCs in the first two games occasionally mention it. The Feral Ghouls. Especially how they're portrayed in Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas. They're ghouls rendered completely insane and hardly sentient anymore. You'll get positive karma by killing them. Fallout 4 makes so they can survive having multiple limbs blown off, doubling the amount of potential body horror. Robobrains. Those human brains used as central processors were not volunteers, they're enemy POWs, political prisoners, conscientious objectors, executed criminals (both sane & insane), and deserters whose brains were forcibly extracted while they were still alive, shoved into a robot body while perfectly conscious and aware, and left stuck in a never-ending nightmare, kept constantly awake and alert by the machines they're wired into and completely incapable of doing anything at all they aren't specifically programmed to do. The countless testing logs found scattered throughout the testing facility in Fallout 4: Automatron is a perfect example of how unbearably horrific the process was.

Acceptable Breaks from Reality
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_b6e1d40b
comment
Acceptable Breaks from Reality: The date that the games take place in vary from 80 to 200+ years after the Great War, and yet the player can still find ruins of civilization mostly untouched, including fridges and vending machines with foodstuffs, military crates and ammo boxes with body armor and munitions, first aid boxes with medical supplies, and so forth. If the wasteland was really a world of scavengers and raiders as the series depicts, anything of value not protected by a lock would have been looted long ago — but that would make exploration mighty boring and unrewarding if there was nothing left for the players to find. Many ruins still contain various rusty metal objects such as chain-link fences, street signs, and car bodies. While it's feasible in the dry deserts that some of the games take place in, several locales take place where it rains frequently or right next to the sea where they'd be exposed to salt spray from the ocean. After 200 years, iron and steel objects would have long since been reduced to a fine red dust. Given that the pre-war world ran on highly inefficient technology, the power systems that run the lights, computers, robots, and other technologies should have run out of fuel within a few decades. But then, that would mean most interior areas would be in total darkness and anything hooked up to or stored on a computer would be inaccessible. In most games, bottle caps are the common currency. However, due to their inefficient size and shape, bottle caps would be difficult to carry in the large quantities shown in the gamenote A mere 300 bottle caps will completely fill a two-liter soda bottle., and it certainly wouldn't be feasible to haul around several thousand caps, not to mention that reproducing the caps would be trivial for anyone with basic fabrication equipment and access to scrap metal, which is actually a minor plot point in New Vegas.

Inexplicably Preserved Dungeon Meat
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_b709120e
comment
Inexplicably Preserved Dungeon Meat: The series always has tons of pre-war food (even in the first game, the Great War happened almost 100 years ago) that's still perfectly edible, including the inexplicably popular Nuka-Cola. Fallout 3 and New Vegas work to subvert this somewhat, as eating pre-war food will still boost the player's health, but also inflict them with minor doses of radiation (and explicitly irradiated food that deals even more radiation when eaten can be found.) Justified in that all pre-war food in the Fallout series appears to be preservative-laded, inorganic, sealed junk food like chips or instant noodles, which was also sterilized by radiation.

One Stat to Rule Them All
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_b798d379
comment
One Stat to Rule Them All: Intelligence across the series. Higher Intelligence means more skill points per level, unique dialogue options with characters that unlocks hidden quest paths (usually better ones than what are otherwise available), and it increases the Science and Repair skills, which are very useful skills needed both for general gameplay and for quests. Even with Fallout 4 removing Skills, Intelligence is tired to several Perks critical to gameplay, including Gun Nut, Science!, Medic, and Hacker, so you'll want an Intelligence of at least 6 and will be sinking a lot of Perk points into that part of the chart. In the first two games, Agility. It increases your three primary combat skills (Small Guns, Big Guns, Energy Weapons), boosts Lockpick, Steal, and Traps (utility skills you'll need, especially Lockpick), and increases Armor Class. Most importantly though, it boosts Action Points, which determines how much you can do each round, so a higher Agility makes combat under any scenario easier to handle. And Agility is tied to several Perks that either give you more Action Points or let you do things for fewer Action Points. In the 3D games, Agility only affects Small Guns and Sneak and VATS is optional for combat, so its importance is lessened. Naturally, depending on their weapons of preference, the player is probably going to want to sink as many skill points into their primary combat stat as they can; Small Guns, Big Guns, or Energy Weapons, mostly likely. Across the series, you'll always end up sinking lots of skill points into the Science and Lockpick skills. Science lets you hack computer terminals, unlocks hidden quest paths, lets you understand technology better, and generally just opens up a lot of gameplay options you'd otherwise miss out on. The same goes for Lockpick, because the world is full of locked doors and locked containers protecting valuable items and they tend to be good ones, so of course you'll want to get them.

Knight Templar: The Enclave, at least in Fallout 2. All mutants must die for the 'true' humanity to rise again. 'All mutants', at this point, is basically all of the surviving humans - after all, unless they've been kept isolated they may have recessive mutant genes! The Brotherhood of Steel's dogma maintains that they're the guardians of the all the old world's advanced technology. They therefore hoard all the tech they have without sharing, and steal tech from their neighbors to "keep it (the technology) safe from abuse". They help you against The Enclave because the latter are a threat to their technological superiority. The Mid-Western Brotherhood of Steel, based in Chicago, are a little better in that they interact peacefully with the tribals around them and help them. They are still a fascistic militant group and their 'interaction' is basically a glorified protection racket "for your own good", but they at least seem intent on including outsiders in building a better tomorrow.

Romance Sidequest: Averted prior to Fallout 4. In Fallout 2 you could get married, but it was a Shotgun Wedding with a one-night stand treated mostly as a joke, and you couldn't have any meaningful interactions with your spouse after the marriage anyway. An optional romance subplot was planned for New Vegas but it was ultimately scrapped (as many of Obsidian's creative staff are on record as not being fond of typical "video game romance"). Fallout 4 allows all human companions (and one robot) to be romanced regardless of gender, but you still gotta work to earn their affection.

New Eden: Van Buren was going to feature "The Nursery", a side-project of a group of Vault-Tec scientists who were concerned about preserving the flora and fauna of Earth and not just humanity (not being privy to the real plot behind the Vaults). They created a self-sufficient oasis in the middle of the Arizona desert, far away from any nuclear target zones, sparing it from radiation and nuclear fire. Unfortunately, the scientists never made it back, and while the Nursery has survived okay on it's own, it's been infested with mutant carnivorous plants, leaving it up to the player to wipe them out and restart the various computer equipment needed to bring the oasis up to maximum effectivenes. Part of this concept was recycled for Vault 22 in New Vegas, while making it a whole lot darker.

Radiation in particular works considerably differently in the Fallout universe than in reality. For starters, while Fallout has radiation sickness, it's also capable of causing genetic mutations that are directly integrated into a creature's biology, leading to creatures like radscorpions, stingwings, and bloatflies. In reality, radiation simply damages DNA, causing it to replicate improperly and causing the body to function incorrectly. (Although, there are theories in-universe that the mutations are not caused by radiation alone, but none of them are confirmed or denied.) Also, in Fallout, simple hazard suits are shown to significantly or completely block radiation when worn, while in real life, the only way to block radiation is to place enough matter between you and the source to physically block the rays. A suit that truly protects you from gamma radiation would be too heavy to move in (although, in 3 and New Vegas, you can only have so much radiation resistance, about 85%, and in 4 1000%+ RR stil lets in 0.5 Rads. This also leads to a Posthumous Character in NV who thought that the old hazmat suit he found let him No-Sell radiation dying from radiation poisoning, all the while blaming his symptoms on food poisoning).

Retro Universe: Fallout's America is an amalgam of all the decades of the Cold War, as well as the Sci-Fi produced during those decades. The '40s give the setting its wartime propaganda, urging you to buy Victory Bonds. The '50s give it their Pre-War fashions and car designs; Fifties Sci-Fi gives it nuclear cars and the styling of its robots. The '60s give it the use of the word "hippies" (in Fallout 3) and anti-war graffiti (all over Hidden Valley in New Vegas). The '70s give it the punk fashion of the Raiders, the oil crisis, and the Institute's general design aesthetic. The '80s give it the drug crisis and emerging biological warfare. The Post-War civilizations also show elements of The Great Depression and The Wild West.

A Nazi by Any Other Name: Many of the series' antagonists follow this trope. The Master in the first game outright states that he and his Super Mutants want to create a Master Race, and that only when there is "one race" and "one goal" can there be peace on Earth. Though, his goal consists less of wiping out the 'inferior races' and more converting all humans to his 'master race', which is more reminiscent of another infamous ideology. The Enclave, due to their autocratic and militaristic rule and their stated goal of wiping out all "mutants" to keep humanity "pure".

Badass Bookworm: Virtually any character build in any of the games that relies heavily on intelligence. The intelligence attribute contributes to skill points granted per level. As a result, high level intelligent characters will almost certainly have mastered a wide variety of skills, including ones related to direct combat. In order to even get access to cybernetic combat implants, one must first have substantial skill as a medical doctor.

We Can Rule Together: The Master, President Eden, and Caesar all make similar offers to the player character. The Master is actually good for it, while Eden's plan will get you killed (although in his defense, he was genuine about his wanting you to join him, your inferior Wastelander biology just served as a Spanner in the Works), and Caesar doesn't exactly have the best track record of keeping his promises (especially if you're playing a female character, given Caesar's view on the place of women in society). The Institute under Father/Shaun also make this offer to you — and, like the Master, they're actually pretty good for the offer. In Dead Money, the player can make this offer to the Big Bad, Father Elijah, but only if they've talked to Veronica about him and have a negative relation with the NCR, whom Elijah wants to overthrow.

Artistic License – Nuclear Physics: As a video game series set in a post-apocalyptic Atompunk running on 1950s pulp science tropes, it inevitably plays very fast and loose in regards to the nature of radiation and nukes. One of the biggest examples being the setting itself; most of the games are set about a century or two after the last bombs dropped, but much of the United States is still an irradiated wasteland. Realistically, the radiation levels should have dropped to negligible levels decades agonote Even a nuclear bomb deliberately designed to "salt the earth" with radioactive particles would completely lose its effects after about 130 years. and vegetation should have returned to the land, but then it wouldn't look so post-apocalyptic anymore would it?

Global Currency: Bottle caps in the first game, endorsed by the Hub Trading Companies due to their rarity and the difficulty in counterfeiting them. New California Republic Dollars in the second, as the NCR is the dominant power in the region. Ring pulls in Tactics. Caps again in Fallout 3. Caps again in New Vegas because the NCR lost the gold it backed its dollars with and the trading companies are honoring old promises. There is NCR paper money and Legion coin, but those are treated as barter items in most cases.

From Zero to Hero: Most entries utilize this trope, with an average person ascending to savior/scourge/wildcard of their region of the Wasteland. The numbered series protagonists (the Vault Dweller, the Chosen One, and the Lone Wanderer) fit this trope absolutely to a tee. An exception is Fallout Tactics: Brotherhood of Steel, where you're already a trained Elite Mook before the game begins.

Lampshade Hanging
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_c6d07520
comment
All the packaged foodstuffs you find are 80-210 years old, and perfectly edible, although irradiated, and the soda is "warm and flat". Perhaps justified, because irradiated food won't spoil (although the preservatives should have turned toxic by then). Fallout 4 lampshades it with the "Perfectly Preserved Pies," slices of totally unblemished, good-as-the-day-they-were-baked pie that can rarely be found in ancient vending machines - one character warns that you shouldn't trust anything that looks that good after so long.

With This Herring
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_c7270d1c
comment
With This Herring: Players are given a very small handful of supplies at the start of each game, typically a handgun with some ammo, a few stimpaks, and maybe a couple other things. Each game justifies this: In the first game, you get a pistol with ammo, a knife, two flares, and four stimpaks. Players can find out later that you're not the first guy they've sent out to find a new water chip and the rest haven't come back and aren't expected to, so they went light on supplies assuming you'd be the same — when you return to the Vault later, you have the option to convince them to give you more gear. You can also start with specialty items (additional ammo, a set of lockpicks, some chems, etc) depending on your Tagged Skills. In the second game, you have a spear, a knife, a handful of cash, and whatever you have leftover after the Temple of Trials. But your village is a primitive tribe, search the huts and you'll realize there's nothing of value they can offer. A couple sidequests allow you to pick up some more healing items and a better spear than you start with before you leave. In the third game, you're woken up in the middle of the night and barely have time to grab some of your personal belongings and take a gun your friend offers you before you have to flee the Vault. You can at least loot the Vault guards you kill and find some other stuff along the way, letting you get your hands on low-level armor and some Vendor Trash before you're thrown into the wasteland. In New Vegas, the people who left you for dead took more than just the Macguffin you were carrying, so when you wake up the doctor gives you back what you had left on you, a pistol, a handful of caps, some stimpaks, and a few bobby pins. Skill checks with the doctor or his equipment can reward a couple more items.note In addition, due to a development oversight everything in his house is marked as unowned, allowing you to freely loot a lot of valuable gear. This is completely averted with the Courier's Stash DLC, which gives you all five pre-order bonus packs at the start of the game, giving you multiple weapons and suits of armor along with many more healing items and other things of use. In the fourth game, you wake up from cryo-sleep to find your already smaller-than-normal Vault has long been abandoned and most things of value have been taken by the former staffers or other looters. The only things left are a handful of stimpaks, a couple of police batons and handheld pistols, and general junk. There is a valuable unique weapon here, the Cryolator, but it's in a security case with a Master-level lock, which is why no one has taken it already and it'll be a long time before you can get it without cheating.

Messianic Archetype
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_c98b7916
comment
Another aesop is the impact one person can make on the world, if they have the will to make a difference, and how their actions can ripple out and change the world in ways they never intended. Throughout the series the various player characters become famed as Messianic Archetypes to the generations that come after, when often their adventures at the time were comparatively small-scale simple good deeds — protecting a village from raiders allowed that village to become a regional government, and smashing some alcohol stills turned a Wretched Hive into a civilized community. New Vegas in particular has a reveal in which what your character thought was just another delivery turned out to be the doom of an entire region of the wasteland, and they never even knew it until coming back years later to see what was left of it.

Crippling the Competition: Throughout the series, you can use target shots to aim at enemy body parts. Shooting the eyes or head lowers their accuracy, shooting the arms may prevent them from using certain weapons, and shooting the legs lowers movement speed.

Taking You with Me: While no-one knows for sure who first let the nukes fly, documents in Fallout 4 implies it was China. If this is true, China was likely trying to invoke this trope due to the U.S sending troops into mainland China after beating them in Alaska. With the war about to be lost, China preferred facing nuclear annihilation.

Kinetic Weapons Are Just Better
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_ccab244d
comment
Kinetic Weapons Are Just Better: A case of Gameplay and Story Segregation, but it applies nonetheless. In Fallout 2, there's no reason to use energy guns except for personal appeal. Fallout 2 greatly expands the number of conventional firearms, making most of the guns continuing from FO1 merely the bottom rung of their particular category (for example in Fallout 2, there was the combat shotgun from FO1 but additionally there is now the HK Caws and the Pancor Jackhammer). These newer firearms did damage that rivaled or exceeded that of the laser rifle. Additionally Fallout 2 had most ammunition give a bonus to damage or reducing the damage resistance of targeted armor. For example, since the common FMJ ammo halves the damage resistance of armor, it made the devastating machine gun Bozar the gamebreaker of Fallout 2. Hilariously, in 2 the Salvatore gang are deeply feared for their exclusive use of laser weapons and one NPC relates a single Salvatore goon with a laser pistol once massacred a whole group of people armed with ordinary gunpowder weapons. However if you start a gunfight while wearing metal armour in the Salvatore bar the supposedly unstoppable thugs toting laser pistols do hardly anything to you - the biggest threat in the room is the bartender toting ye olde double-barrelled shotgun. In 3, guns are Boring, but Practical compared to energy weapons. The Alien Blaster is one of the strongest weapons in the entire game, but Abe Lincoln's old .44 Winchester repeater isn't that far behind and it uses fairly easy to come by .44 ammunition rather than irreplaceable alien power cells. New Vegas finally balances things out by introducing several top-tier laser and plasma weapons that fulfil the same tactical niches of different guns (laser shotgun, laser sniper rifle, laser SMG, etc.) and perks to increase their power. Energy weapons also have an inherent damage threshold reduction effect making them much more effective than guns against heavily armoured enemies like robots, Brotherhood Knights and deathclaws. That said, guns loaded with armour-piercing rounds will do almost as good a job, and energy weapons and their ammunition are still more expensive and harder to come by, at least in the early game.

Apocalyptic Logistics: Ammo and pre-war guns, though not always in the best of condition, are still common enough to be in the hands of most mooks, factions, and merchants. Energy weapons are rarer (though the few that still have the means crank out post-war replicas). Despite the 80-210 years (depending on the game) since the bombs fell, pre-war supplies can still be found in abundance in ruined buildings, in areas with beings that would have had found them and used them long before the game even started.

Horror Hunger: Cannibalism, in addition to being a favored pastime of rabid psychotics, can sometimes stem from a mutation. While most humans must choose to eat people (and suffer from the real-world side-effects, like brain diseases), a small number of people have mutated a natural compulsion to eat human flesh, as well as the ability to eat it without getting brain damage. Several organizations of cannibals exist who have either kicked the habit, tried to and failed, or found a substitute.

Take Your Time: Averted in the first game, where you have 150 days to find a new water chip and save your vault, and then 500 days to destroy The Master's army (although finishing as fast as you can determines whether the Mutants destroyed the various settlements or not in the ending.) Fallout 2 gives you a 13 year time limit due to technical limitations. Played straight in all subsequent games.

Fallout 4 stars a pre-war citizen of the USA who was frozen along with everyone else in their vault before the bombs dropped. They see their spouse shot dead and their infant son kidnapped, leading to them being known as The Sole Survivor. This one proved controversial, as it gave the PC a far more specific background than previous titles, which some players found limiting and uninteresting.

Lethal Joke Item: The Red Ryder Limited Edition BB Gun. It does virtually no damage to enemies... unless you hit them in the eyes, in which case it becomes the most powerful weapon in the entire game and has a near 100% crit rate, regularly resulting in Ludicrous Gibs even against Super Mutants and Nightkin. It is, however, useless against enemies that don't have eyes. The same BB Gun makes its return in New Vegas. The weapon has an extremely high critical damage multiplier and perfect accuracy, and while hidden, with the right perks, its damage output surpasses everything short of an Anti-materiel rifle with a sneak attack critical.

Ludicrous Gibs: Will happen after taking the Bloody Mess perk/trait, which does exactly what it says to your enemies.

In Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas, the Bloody Mess perk can actually make corpse looting tedious if you mow down a large number of targets in a small area; you'll likely take a while sifting through the mess.

Drugs Are Bad
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_de7b7cbf
comment
Drugs Are Bad: Performance-enhancing drugs (Mentats, Buffout, Psycho, Med-X, Jet, UltraJet) are all over the place in each game, but also can cause addictions each time they're used - and the withdrawal symptoms that result affect a player's statistics in a negative manner until cured (or unless you keep taking the drug). There are also characters like Cassidy in the second game who can die if they use drugs, and Super Stimpaks can be used as a covert method of assassination as the side effects will cause enough damage to kill President Dick Richardson (or any other 'friendly' NPC), allowing you to take their items without fear of the reprisals that direct action would cause. One particular NPC (Councillor Westin) will explode if you use one on him! Interestingly inverted in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, where addiction is a non-issue if drugs are taken in moderation (ie no more than once every 30 to 48 in-game hours) but alcohol always has a chance of addiction. Considering Bethesda has a habit of making alcohol the bad item in The Elder Scrolls series while making in-universe illicit drugs useful, this isn't surprising. On the other hand, New Vegas features the Fiends, an entire gang of junkies who are undeniably the biggest scumbags of the game.

However, that doesn't matter. Why? Because not only are the Institute The Conspiracy, but they can produce Gen 1 & 2 Synths by the veritable millions.

Authority Equals Asskicking: Seen in Fallout 1 with the Lieutenant and the Master. Averted in Fallout 2 with President Richardson, who's a standard unarmed civilian, and in Fallout 3 with Colonel Autumn, who is only slightly tougher than a normal enemy soldier. Played straight in Fallout 3 with Bonus Boss Commander Jabsco of Talon Company (who has a rocket launcher and more health than almost any other character in the game), and Chinese General Jingwei in the Operation: Anchorage DLC expansion (who has an insane amount of health which, combined with his body armor, makes him the 2nd toughest enemy in the entire game next to the 15-foot tall Super Mutant Behemoth, possibly to encourage the player to convince him to surrender instead, or maybe just an example of Executive Meddling on the part of General Chase). Both seen and averted in New Vegas. The NCR President and General are both bog-standard humans, while Caesar himself is only about as tough as an Elite Mook. Legate Lanius, however, is a murder machine (for reference, the guy can take multiple anti-tank rounds to the face and still have more than 3/4ths of his health left).

Nerf: Power Armor got this treatment immediately after the second game, and seems to get more plentiful across the wasteland with each Fallout installment. At first, it was nearly impenetrable and could only be gotten through a particularly difficult sidequest for the Brotherhood Of Steel. By Fallout 4, even the Raiders have it, and the player can get any armor by simply killing the wearer and walking away with their suit. On top of that, it's also gotten much more difficult to maintain and use.

Divergent Character Evolution
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_e5d37e0f
comment
Divergent Character Evolution: The Brotherhood of Steel "split" into three distinct factions after Fallout 2, each faction demonstrating very different behavior: The West Coast side devolved into Knight Templar, becoming hostile to any outsiders they deem unfit to use advanced technology and using force to keep their bases safe, being very hesitant to accept aid from outsiders. They quietly acknowledge however that their xenophobic policies will get their faction exterminated since their numbers are dwindling and their technology is becoming outdated, but they keep to the codex anyway, and as a result have divided even further into isolated chapters with differing ideals and little unity. The East Coast Brotherhood led by Elder Lyons decided that their advanced technology would be put to better use helping people rather than just being hoarded, so they turned their attention to patrolling the wasteland trying to protect people from mutants and raiders, their ranks are open to outside recruits, and they offer aid to outsider projects they deem worth the manpower. While this has arguably made them the most successful branch of the Brotherhood, it also violates much of the Codex, and pressure is mounting within the chapter as the few original members who haven't deserted continue to question where their loyalties lie. Fallout 4 takes place 10 years after 3, and Elder Lyons has passed away in that time. The Brotherhood decided to revert closer to the original West coast counterparts (or East coast Outcasts) in terms of philosophy, but are still open to outside recruitment to get around the West Coast "dwindling population" problem. They keep some of their old beliefs from the Lyons era as they also ostensibly aim to protect the commonwealth (at least its unaltered human population) from the Institute, super mutants, raiders and other perceived threats. These good intentions however are counterbalanced by the Brotherhood being violently xenophobic and tyrannical, having no issues with using force to get "cooperation" from less powerful groups or exterminating non-humans who pose no actual threat to the Commonwealth. The Brotherhood Outcasts left the East Coast chapter because they felt Lyons betrayed the Codex, and while they take the name "Outcasts" as a jab at him, they consider themselves the real Brotherhood of the East Coast and see Lyons as a traitor who will be brought to justice. They are willing, though reluctant, to accept aid from outsiders and will open their base to one they trust enough, but do not offer membership, bolstering their ranks with robots instead. They patrol the wastelands salvaging old technology, and their patrols deal with hostiles like mutants and raiders. Interestingly, the "outcasts" are closer to the Brotherhood's behavior in the original Fallout than either the East or West Coast sides. As of Fallout 4, the Outcasts have since rejoined the main East Coast Brotherhood after Arthur Maxson became Elder.

Interestingly inverted in Fallout 3 and New Vegas, where addiction is a non-issue if drugs are taken in moderation (ie no more than once every 30 to 48 in-game hours) but alcohol always has a chance of addiction. Considering Bethesda has a habit of making alcohol the bad item in The Elder Scrolls series while making in-universe illicit drugs useful, this isn't surprising. On the other hand, New Vegas features the Fiends, an entire gang of junkies who are undeniably the biggest scumbags of the game.

Talking the Monster to Death
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_e92841f
comment
Talking the Monster to Death: A very common way to deal with the Final Boss and/or Big Bad is to talk your way out of the fight, or you can avoid it entirely. In 1, the Master can be talked into destroying himself if you convince him his plan will fail. The Dragon, the Lieutenant, can be avoided by self-destructing the base. 2, you can talk the Mad Scientist who is responsible for the Big Bad's scheme into sabotaging it. The Big Bad will happily converse you with, but conversation goes nowhere and he's not a fighter so he doesn't attack you unless you strike first. You also set their base to self-destruct, ensuring his death anyway. In a rare case for this series, the Final Boss cannot be talked down, and this is almost lampshaded by allowing you to ask "can't we talk this over?" and the villain laughing "we just did". 3, Autumn can be talked into walking away by convincing him he fights for a lost cause. The add-ons: Operation Anchorage lets you convince the final boss to kill himself. The Pitt lets you talk one of the two villains (depending on quest options) into fleeing, the other must die. In the other three add-ons, the final villain must be killed. New Vegas, you may face one of two final bosses, or both. Both can both be talked into standing down without a fight. The Big Bad of the Legion, Caesar, must be killed, but he's a Bonus Boss and his death is not demanded by the story. The add-ons: Old World Blues lets you talk the villain into reforming, Dead Money lets you snare the villain in a Death Trap without fighting him, and Lonesome Road lets you talk down the final boss. Honest Hearts plays with this by having Joshua Graham subdue the villain, Salt-Upon Wounds, in a cutscene, and you can either talk down Joshua into letting him live, letting him fight for his life, or just let him kill him.

Groin Attack: The first two games featured the groin as a legitimate target on any creature. Yes, you can punch rats in the groin. Even better, you can sledgehammer a rat in the groin. Which is still nowhere near as twisted as firing a rocket at a child's groin. In terms of gameplay, groin attacks will usually leave an enemy stunned, slumped on the floor, longer than usual. Fallout 1's combat dialog is rife with commentary about getting hit in that exceptionally painful area.

Infinite Stock For Sale: The games in general are aversions, as shops only have limited stock. Not only that, but the shop owners had limited money as well, meaning that if you're selling items to them, you could only sell them so much before they were out of money. This can lead to situations where, if you have a high-value item, you can't sell it to some shops without taking a loss (i.e. it might be worth 1000 caps but the shop keep only has 400 on hand).

The Master in the first game outright states that he and his Super Mutants want to create a Master Race, and that only when there is "one race" and "one goal" can there be peace on Earth. Though, his goal consists less of wiping out the 'inferior races' and more converting all humans to his 'master race', which is more reminiscent of another infamous ideology.

In New Vegas, all of the DLCs have a character who is this to some extent, and nearly all of them are (or at least presented as) antagonists at some point. In Dead Money and Lonesome Road Father Elijah and Ulysses respectively went on long incredible journeys involving post-war organizations, settlements, and tribes otherwise unmentioned in the series. In Honest Hearts there is Joshua Graham, who was formally both a Mormon missionary and the legate for Cesar's Legion. Dr. Mobius of Old World Blues was a prewar scientist and Brain in a Jar who eventually used SCIENCE! to prevent his former colleagues from ravaging the post-apocalyptic world.

In the Black Isle games, Strength. A Strength of 5 gives respectable carry capacity and Hit Points and enables the use of most weapons, and if you ever need to pass a skill check you can just pop a Buffout for a temporary buff. Some BFGs require higher Strength to wield properly, but they're late-game weapons which are often Awesome, but Impractical. Also, Power Armor boosts Strength several points and both games let you receive an implant to boost it again, so by the time you get to the late game you'll have no problem wielding naything

Great Offscreen War
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_f722f635
comment
Great Offscreen War: Fallout 3's Broken Steel DLC had the East Coast Brotherhood of Steel's war against the Enclave, in which the Lone Wanderer gets involved only at the tail end of said war. New Vegas has a number of events mentioned, like the First Battle of Hoover Dam as well as the crushing defeat of both the West Coast Brotherhood and Enclave at the hands of the NCR. All of which have lasting repercussions by the time the Courier enters the picture. In the DLC Honest Hearts the Twisted Hairs tribe has attacked and razed the settlement of New Canaan. Since you joined a trading caravan headed there unaware of the events, this changes the entire premise of the DLC. Fallout 4 has not only the espionage war still being waged between the Railroad and Institute (of which the Sole Survivor's timely intervention will permanently decide the conflict's resolution), but the fall of the Commonwealth Minutemen in the game's backstory. The Resource Wars are one for the series as a whole. Between 2050 and 2077, conflicts in the mid-to-late 21st century broke out in response to the decline of oil. Major events include the U.S. destabilizing and invading Mexico, the collapse of the United Nations, the European Commonwealth invading the Middle East and waging war for eight years before pulling out when the wells dry up, which was followed up by a civil war; China invading Alaska, and the U.S. annexing Canada before retaking Anchorage and sending troops into mainland China. Justified since this took place over 200 years ago.

The Very Definitely Final Dungeon
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_f821e963
comment
The Very Definitely Final Dungeon: Five of them: Fallout: A big Cathedral in the middle of the ruins of Los Angeles is inhabited by strange cultists and a shadowy atmosphere. Below, there is a dark Vault filled with Super Mutant Nightkin elite troopers, mad scientists, mutated aberrations, cultists and crazy FEV-induced psykers. The walls are full of a grotesque biological goo that looks strangely alive. At the end of your way, you have to pass a corridor where your nemesis starts blasting you with his immense psionic powers. At the end, you meet what can be accurately called the strangest being of the wastelands: insane, super-intelligent, grotesquely mutated. There's also an old military laboratory in the remote badlands west of Vault 13, guarded by strong mutant soldiers and robots. The base is brightly-lit, yet the atmosphere is dense and shadowy. In the depths of the base, big vats of bubbling green fluid contains, depending on the point of view, either the key to the evolution of the human race, or its eventual demise. The game lets you choose which one you want to destroy first though, and you're not trapped inside them once you enter and are forced to finish them. Fallout 2: The Enclave Oil Rig, the stronghold of the extremely well-equipped remnants of the éminence grise members of the United States Government, a massive fortress significantly larger than any other settlement or dungeon, populated by an army larger than all other armies combined, consisting of incredibly tough Powered Armor-wearing soldiers loaded with the best weapons in the game and lots of stimpaks. Indeed, unless you're an insanely tough, completely combat-oriented character, your only viable means of getting through is to disguise yourself by wearing one of their own armored suits and sneaking past everyone. Fallout Tactics: Vault 0. For most of the first half of the game, you are just expanding the Brotherhood's influence, crushing rebellions, killing raiders, so on and so forth, but then you run into the Super Mutants, who were the reason the Midwestern Brotherhood was sent over the mountains in the first place. But even they're not the true enemy- they were merely mobilizing to fight an even more significant threat- robots, centered around Vault 0, and towards the end of the game you move further and further into Colorado and into the mountains, until you start seeing real snow (unusual in a setting without much weather) and finally end up getting into the heavily-guarded Vault 0... by blasting it open with a nuke. From that point on, all bets are off, and you can't go back to home base... Fallout 4: If you were disgusted by them, you and your army storm The Institute and blow it up with its own reactor. If you decide to side with them, then you fight the Brotherhood of Steel at their airbase and hijack Liberty Prime to see their airbase as a giant Communist vehicle. "Boom".

Video Game Cruelty Potential: You can be a sick, sick bastard if you so desire. Pimping your wife and then divorcing her, becoming a slaver, causing gang wars, murdering children... if you count post-end-of-game results, your actions can cause entire cities to fall apart. A minor, but rather poignant, bit of cruelty is convincing Moira Brown to give up on her Wasteland Survival Guide. Not only is this considered evil, but it gives you a perk called "Dream Crusher" (a perk that prevents enemies from scoring critical hits) and forever dampens her ordinarily cheery attitude. They really went out of their way to make you seem like a bastard for doing it. In Broken Steel you can wipe the Brotherhood HQ right off the map, kill off any stragglers, and get a special Magnum if you do. However, what most consider to be quite possibly the most reprehensible act you can accomplish in Fallout 3 is going to Rivet City and convincing the mentally unstable Mr. Lopez to commit suicide. It's notable that while people will happily upload videos of nuking Megaton, virtually no one has really posted videos of this online. Mid- to endgame main quests in New Vegas requires you to screw over each main faction except the one you favor, and it's quite possible to have them think you're working for them up until the moment of betrayal. It's quite easy (and historically appropriate) to visit Caesar for a negotiation and stab him to death, and Mr. House, well... given what a pitiful creature he's become, it's hard not to feel like a heel for ending his dream. Fallout 4 downplays this the most out of the series...and you can still do some utterly despicable things. For example, you can sell a Ghoul child to some slavers, or if you refuse, give up his entire family to the slavers. In one Diamond City quest, you can ambush a chem deal, and then murder your partners to take all the chems and money for yourself. Also, the vast majority of the populaces of the Prydwen, Institute, and Railroad HQ aren't immortal, meaning you can go on a kill-happy murder spree if you want to.note Or even if you don't. The Brotherhood, Railroad, and Institute are all mutually opposed and on a collision course; siding with any one of them means the other two have to die.

Downer Beginning
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_f88f2449
comment
Downer Beginning: The series, as a whole, begins with the Great War that leaves the world an irradiated wasteland. It doesn't get much better in the games: Fallout 1: Vault 13's water chip has broken down. Unless a replacement can be found, the water purification system in the Vault will fail, and everyone in the Vault will run out of water and die. Fallout 2: Just as the people in your subterranean community emerge to try and start a new life for themselves the Enclave rear their ugly heads and start killing your friends. Fallout 3: Your mother dies in childbirth, your father is forced to take flight from the Vault for reasons you don't understand, and you end up getting chased out into the wastes. New Vegas: You get caught by some raiders led by a notorious crook, the package you were supposed to deliver stolen before you get shot in the head and buried in a shallow grave. Fallout 4: You, your spouse, and your child are forced to evacuate to a Vault when the Great War begins. Your family is placed into cryogenic stasis, only for a mysterious mercenary to abduct your son and murder your spouse. Double Subverted in 76: You emerge from the Vault, one of the few control Vaults that worked as intended, to a wasteland that is practically untouched by the ravages of war...and completely depopulated due to a mysterious plague.

NPCs universally suffer from Suicidal Overconfidence and will eagerly run into combat with a dozen enemies, even if at a glance the player could tell they wouldn't survive to see their next turn for it.

The Remnant
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_f9c17447
comment
The Remnant: Where to start? You've got the remnants of the Master's Army and the Enclave (the remnants of the éminence grise of the US government) in Fallout 2 and Fallout 3, as well as the game's Ghoulified Chinese soldiers on U.S. soil, still holding their positions and waiting for word from a headquarters that was (presumably) vaporized long ago. The Brotherhood of Steel is technically a Remnant of the U.S Armed Forces, though their founders deserted the goverment just before the War. In New Vegas, you get the Enclave Remnants, a group of elderly Enclave veterans having assumed new lives in the Mojave after the Enclaves destruction, making them the remnant of the remnant. Possible Follower Arcade Gannon is the son of their former squad leader, and his side quest revolves around recruiting the Remnants The NCR was going to be this in the cancelled Van Buren, having lost contact with the original California region years ago. However, New Vegas, while incorporating a lot of Van Buren, did not include this ,as the NCR is perfectly intact, if stretched thin trying to turn back Caesars Legion. 4 has the shipwrecked & Ghoulified remnants of a Norwegian freighter, who have since then degenerated into Raiders in order to survive.

Running Gag
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_f9f2c33
comment
Running Gag: Corporate warfare between soda brands. Starting with New Vegas, old terminal entries can be found detailing the Nuka-Cola Corporation's attempts to monopolize the American soda market while covering up their comically shady business practices. Sunset Sarsaparilla was among their few major competitors, but they struggled to do so amid health code violations and lawsuits. Fallout 4's DLC introduces the underdog brand Vim!, localized almost entirely within Maine and besieged on all sides by Nuka-Cola's sabotage, espionage, and copyright infringement. The fact that all this drama was rendered utterly meaningless by the apocalypse is the icing on the cake. Cow tipping is also a recurring joke across all the games. And after Bethesda Game Studios took over the series, Lovecraft references are often found throughout the Wasteland.

Final Death
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_fc15d243
comment
Final Death: Once a team member is killed, they're dead forever. This is Earth, not Toril, and there are no such things as resurrection spells. In the first two games, every NPC (including essential quest providers) is killable. In Fallout 3 every character except children and those deemed essential are, meaning you can always progress in the game but can screw yourself out of a lot of potential loot and XP. In New Vegas, your allies are just KOed for a few seconds in normal mode. In Hardcore difficulty, though, it's Final Death.

Robot Buddy: Skynet and K-9 in Fallout 2, RL-3 in Fallout 3, ED-E and Rex (technically, it's a cyborg dog, but still...) in New Vegas, and Codsworth & Curie (the latter only initially, at the very least) in 4. Also in New Vegas, you have Yes Man, who helps you take over New Vegas for yourself if you help him and is always cheerful and friendly. 4's Automatron DLC gives you the ability to build and customize more robot companions, who can be of any make that the player encounters during the game, including Sentry Bots and Assaultrons. They can also be used to staff the player's settlements, if you're feeling generous.

Well-Intentioned Extremist
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_fd4f8299
comment
Well-Intentioned Extremist: Most major villains tend to be these (or at least, they think that they are). The first game has its Big Bad, the Master, who is kidnapping innocent people and forcibly turning them into Super Mutants to serve in his army. His reason? He sees this as a necessary step to take for humanity to survive, and thrive, in the post-war world. Explaining the flaws of his plan will actually cause him to take a step back and seriously reconsider it. The two most "evil" factions of the canon, the Enclave and the Legion, are stand-out examples. Both are ruthless, mass-murdering organizations, with the former plotting genocide against all Wastelanders and the latter raping and pillaging across vast swaths of the American Southwest. However, both point out that the Wasteland is, in most places, a terrifying hellhole teeming with psychotic killers and vicious mutants. The leaders of both groups believe that the end will justify their means, bringing peace and civilization to an otherwise horrific Crapsack World. While the Institute are considerably grayer on the morality spectrum than both the Legion and Enclave, they also are examples of this. They justify their brutal conspiracy over New England by explaining that they plan on eventually supplying their advanced technology to the surface so as to create a utopia - but will only do this with a society they find worthy enough for their tech, so as to prevent the Great War from happening all over again. Any society they find "inferior" or not meeting their standards? They'll happily smother it in the cradle.

Was Once a Man: Every Ghoul and Super Mutant you encounter was a human once, as the Forced Evolutionary Virus "blesses" it's victims with biological immortality, while turning them into monsters. Many of the ghouls around the Wastelands have been alive since before the Great War.

Ridiculous Future Inflation
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_fdbb6993
comment
Ridiculous Future Inflation: The Pre-War World had a seriously insane case of this. Fallout Tactics has a gas station where the price of regular gasoline is somewhere in the $4500 range. Premium fuel was $8000.99 per gallon. (Then again, this may have been more due to the lack of oil. The shock of the price is still jarring to those who do not know about the oil shortage of the past). The intro also shows an ad for a car advertised as being fully analog, with no computers, and costing "just" $199,999.99. The newspapers from the 2050s and 2070s shown in the Fallout 3 loading screens cost $56 each. In Fallout 4, as evidenced by a terminal in Gwinnett Brewery, a pint of beer cost $39 in 2077, the year the Great War started. A six-pack cost $200, and a donut is proudly advertised for the low, low price of $30.

Critical Hit Class
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_fe069e49
comment
Outside New Vegas, Luck was only useful for builds centering on Sniper. Otherwise all it gives are minor boosts to critical hit chance and an extra couple of points to all skills. A Luck of 6 is enough to take most Perks that need a Luck requirement, and Fallout 1 and 2 both have ways to permanently boost Luck by at least 1 point, so the starting 5 is fine.

Shown Their Work
 Fallout (Video Game) / int_ffad4e9f
comment
Shown Their Work: Fallout 1 featured a detailed description of cell division, and how a mutagenic artificial virus interfered at the anaphase stage. In many ways, the result of this interference is the single most fantastic element of the story; everything else follows reality. In Fallout 2, Myron's explanation for how Jet was discovered, although somewhat fantastical, is quite complex. The Bethesda-era games (New Vegas especially) put tons of work into making their in-game settings be as accurate to their real-world counterparts as possible (within reason, of course). This includes landmarks both famous and innocuous, the local geography, and the layout of streets. In New Vegas, Caesar's Legion are heavily based after the Roman Empire In-Universe - and it can actually be pretty hard at times to tell them apart from the real thing. While not nearly to the Legion's extent, the Commonwealth Minutemen in 4 are based after the real-world colonial militias that fought in the American Revolution on not just an aesthetic level. Similarly, most of the espionage tactics used by the Railroad (i.e., dead drops) are based on methods used by the CIA during the Cold War. In all games accumulating one thousand rads of radiation will lead to the character's death. In reality, that is roughly the point where death from radiation poisoning is certain. (Of course in practice it varies from individual to individual, but hey, it's a nice round number!)
