Vault Boy

Vault Boy

Vault Boy is the mascot of the Fallout series. He is the mascot for Vault-Tec corporation within the Fallout universe.


Vault Boy is the mascot for the Vault-Tec corporation. Vault Boy has been in every single Fallout games and depicts an iconic pose for all the stats (skills, traits, perks, etc) in the Fallout games. In appearance, he is a young male cartoon character with wavy blond hair wearing a vault jumpsuit. He most commonly expresses a wide grin, but has been shown to make other facial expressions as well.



Starts out with the announcer from Fallout stating that "War Never Changes. Those who seek power soon seek even more power and fame. They will venture to the ends of the Earth if they must to obtain it. No matter who stands in their way, no matter what obstacles they must over come....War....War Never Changes...." And continues to describe Vault Boy's journey.

Reason -

Connection - Claptrap and Vault boy are both arguably the mascots of their series. Both characters are also mascots for fictional companies based around technology: Claptrap for Hyperion and Vault Boy for Vault-Tec. Both Claptrap and Vault boy can be seen as highly comical Vault Boy through his photos and Claptrap through his actions. Fallout and Borderlands are both RPGs. Claptrap and Vault Boy both go through several costume changes in pictures. While the main character from Fallout lives in a vault, the main characters in Borderlands are Vault Hunters.


The announcer picks back up talking for Vault Boy as he walks into the atomic wasteland once again glowing blue having found the power he was searching for. It shows Vault Boy in many different costumes and describes how he had to do things for the better good and even some selfish things. Just like the Fallout games though it always ends ambiguous and stating "War Never Changes" philosophy.


Vault Boy is one of the most wackiest character in the roster and uses weapons and abilities derived from the Fallout Series. He is a well rounded character who has plenty of melee and midranged attacks.
