Mirelurk deep king is a creature in Fallout 4.

Background

The third of the major mirelurk types, the kings are heavily mutated snapping turtles. Standing upright on two feet, they are the most human-like of the mirelurks, especially in terms of behavior. They have a symbiotic relationship with the other mirelurk types and commonly employ ranged attacks which the other variants lack.[1] Their hands allow them to employ simple tools.[2] They also constantly exude slime to prevent their skin from drying.[3]

Though it appears human in shape, the Mirelurk King evolved in non-sapien ways, forced by the pollution and radiation. Its upper and lower fins have developed joints and claws capable of flexion. Although there is no evolutionary link between the mirelurk kings and the mirelurks themselves, the species have formed a symbiotic bond of sorts: The kings' superior intelligence allows them to dominate and perhaps control their less intelligent mirelurk peers, which in turn can expand their territory more efficiently under their control.[4]

Characteristics

Kings are perhaps the most challenging mirelurks to face. Apart from their excellent agility and low profile, they hit hard and attack with both poison and a sonic attack at range. Taking them down requires a bit of effort compared to the rather dumb regular mirelurks and hunters.

This creature drops Mirelurk meat on death.

A more powerful variant of the usual mirelurk king found in the Commonwealth, the deep king is stronger, faster, and distinguished by its blue and yellow coloration.

Appearances

Mirelurk deep king appears in Fallout 4.

Similarly, there is no evolutionary link between the Mirelurk Kings and the Mirelurks themselves; the story I told myself while building this Lovecraftian monstrosity was that his kind had evolved in ways that allowed them to dominate and perhaps control their less intelligent Mirelurk peers."
