Behind the scenes

The original concept sketch of Johnny "Five Aces".

Johnny is a nod to the character Johnny "Five Aces" from The Zybourne Clock, an abandoned game project proposed and mocked incessantly by members of the Something Awful forums. His appearance in Fallout: New Vegas is based on the original concept sketch of the character, as well as some of the concept storyline. The following is a quote the main developer of Zybourne Clock used to describe the project:

When the object enters the timestream, time begins to correct itself. Let me use this example: Imagine four balls on the edge of a cliff. Say a direct copy of the ball nearest the cliff is sent to the back of the line of balls and takes the place of the first ball. The formerly first ball becomes the second, the second becomes the third, and the fourth falls off the cliff.

Time works the same way.

Hence the balls found on top of the ridge where Johnny is.


Johnny appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
