Background[edit | edit source]
Widely suspected to be human flesh, no one knows exactly what it is, other than it looks and tastes strange. The presence of the item is often used in the game to indicate that those possessing it are cannibals.
Variants[edit | edit source]
Strange meat[edit | edit source]
It appears to be spongy bits of meat skewered onto a stick. It restores a small amount of hit points and also give a small dose of rads. In Fallout: New Vegas, this meat makes your Strength suffer a -1 penalty.
Strange meat pie[edit | edit source]
Ground up strange meat that has been baked into a pie. It doesn't have any different effects from that of regular strange meat, aside from the Strength penalty being nullified in Fallout: New Vegas.
Imitation strange meat pie[edit | edit source]
Human flesh[edit | edit source]
Strips of flesh, scavenged from a human corpse, ready to be eaten raw.
Human remains[edit | edit source]
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
- Strange meat pies might be a reference to Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street in which the two main characters murder people, then grind and bake their remains into a "meat" pie.
