Name confusion[edit | edit source]
As explained in this article, the 'Vault-Boy' is incorrectly called 'Pip-Boy' in this encounter - 'Vault-Boy' being the name given by its creator, Leonard Boyarsky. It is a common misconception, as the character was never given a name in-game, only referred to in interviews.
The 'Pip-Boy' is the red haired, pointy-eared character that featured on the Pipboy-2000 in Fallout 1 and Fallout 2.
