Mike smash

Mike The Masticator is the reigning champion of New Reno boxing rings in Fallout 2.

Background[edit | edit source]

A mountain of a man, Mike is a bona fide giant of the ring. With arms like tree trunks (or tank barrels, depending on the perspective) and a face like a raw slab of meat, Mike is an ocean of muscle. Unfortunately, his impressive physique is not accompanied by a comparable intellect. Years of fighting damaged his brain, reducing him to a moron barely capable of stringing words together, much less form complete sentences.

However, the Bishops have found a use for his talents. Mike is kept in a cage below the Shark Club and fed a steady diet of high protein food and steroids, maintaining his mighty frame and staying power. However, his diet doesn't contain all of the nutrients he needs. Mike has figured out how to supplement it, though. He bites ears of his opponents.

Evan Hollyfeld learned that the hard way. While fighting the Masticator, he made the mistake of headbutting him. When Mike saw ears coming, he lost it and mauled Evan's ears, paving the way to victory. This only added to his legend, causing many boxers to decline fighting him for ear of their ears.

Interactions with the player character[edit | edit source]

Quests[edit | edit source]

Other interactions[edit | edit source]

  • The fight with the Masticator will include the chance for a player to have his ears mauled. If the player character has 115 or less hit points, then the Masticator can randomly tear one of their ears off. The player's ear appears in inventory and Charisma is reduced by 1 permanently.
  • On the other hand, with Unarmed of 160% or above, the player can tear off the Masticator's ear in combat. The souvenir is worth $750 and no real effect.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Mike is a reference to Mike Tyson. Evan Hollyfeld is another reference, this time to Evander Holyfied's fight with Mike Tyson, where the latter bit off a bit of the former's ear.
  • Mike mentions how he hates "Robbin' Givens."[1]

Bugs[edit | edit source]

  • In the unpatched game, losing an ear to the Masticator actually increased Charisma due to incorrectly set functions.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

The Masticator appears only in Fallout 2.
