He is seen later in the trailer fighting the Courier.[edit source]

Do we know for sure that it's him? Only it looks slightly different to me.JaspertheViking :D? 17:27, December 18, 2010 (UTC)


Doggod.png

I just did some crafty youtube pausing, and the Nightkin attacking the Courier definitely has the 'DOG' scars (see pic). Maybe there are more Nightkin in Sierra Madre, and maybe they all have 'DOG' scars because they were all captured, branded and locked up (maybe kept as pets?)

It's unlikely but it would make more sense than 'Dog and God' attacking the courier because of course 'If one of you dies..... you all die'. Maybe he goes crazed every now and then and you have to run away from him. Itsjustliam 12:24, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

He's a schizophrenic. Pretty easy to understand if he gets violent every now and then.--86.44.130.176 12:44, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Also,why is the nightkin or dog/god not wearing an explosive collar?

I'm pretty sure he is wearing one, check the pic again and his version is a big thick chain with the explosive bit slightly visable at the back, pretty sure a normal slave collar wouldn't fit him properly Itsjustliam 11:00, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks. We didn't know about the split personality bit when I posted that. Also, nice work with that shot.JaspertheViking :D? 11:13, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Well, having actually played the expansion I'm cheating a little but he does have one, it's just in his stomach due to his constant hunger XD --Lyco499 23:36, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Dog slash God[edit source]

How do we move the page if the slash in Dog/God will indicate that it's a subsection of the Dog page? Nitty Tok. 04:56, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Hmmm... "Dog-Slash-God" "Dog, God" "Dog|God" That last one might work.--Gothemasticator 05:07, December 20, 2010 (UTC)
Dog and God, maybe? Since they're technically different characters, like Lily and Leo? Nitty Tok. 05:09, December 20, 2010 (UTC)
What if we used a backslash, like this Dog\God. It might not look good but it'll do the job. --Anon talk 05:12, December 20, 2010 (UTC)
I'm leaning towards the 'and' now, it won't need any special formatting. Dog|God might screw up links. Nitty Tok. 05:14, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

"Dog (God)" nah, that mirrors our which-game-is-it-in formatting. Ahhh, "and" works, I guess.--Gothemasticator 05:41, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Weapon[edit source]

Right, so as we think that thenightkin that fights the courier later in the trailer is Dog/God then can we assume tha he uses a rebar club as a weapon? Because he's seen using it to attack you. I'm going to add it.JaspertheViking :D? 11:41, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

He only uses it there and its regular. --Drldrl 23:34, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Mariposa Super Mutant Tag.[edit source]

How do we know he is a Mariposa super mutant?,are all Nightkin Mariposa or are only some of them? Lenov 18:29, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Every single Nightkin was hand-picked by the Master out of Mariposa supermutants. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/08/Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 23:14, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

Name[edit source]

Possible reference to the play "Short Eyes"-one of the characters frequently talks about god as a fickle being, flipping the name to show a more babraric and nonesensical side of it, etc. Wyrmalla 18:33, December 20, 2010 (UTC)

God as fickle is a staple of literature, far before and beyond "Short Eyes." Also, dog/god used satirically is pretty widespread.--Gothemasticator 01:46, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Edits[edit source]

I've edited some parts of the article to take away some confusion of having two characters in one character page. I refer to him as D/G and one individual (Because he is, essentially). Aonopolis 20:43, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Split into two articles?[edit source]

I played DM and was thinking the entire time that they are two completely different people. Dog is still listening to The Master (super mutant army guy), while God is trying to kill Elijah for controlling Dog. I think it should be split into to articles. --Drldrl 23:33, December 21, 2010 (UTC)

Same guy, just split personality. Seperate sections within the article perhaps, but not seperate pages. =P

Same article. It's one character. I'm removing the split tag.--Gothemasticator 04:30, December 23, 2010 (UTC)

Dog and God are in the same body, but his mind switch's from one mental stat to another, so counting them separate characters is like counting Hanna Montanan and Mily Cirus two different people.--The OutCasts 12:16, December 25, 2010 (UTC)

Switching[edit source]

Hmmm, when I first met him in the Police Station I used the audio recording to change Dog to God, then via speech I changed him back to Dog. Later out of curiosity I used the recording to change him back to God again, however the recording isn't changing him back to Dog and I can't find the option in speech. Help? =/ And while I'm at it, the info on switching them back and forth would be a good adition to the main page. --Lyco499 00:53, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

To change him to Dog you have to use the recording with Father Elijah's voice. --Drldrl 01:41, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Ahhhh, that makes perfect sense, I just didnt make the connection. Thanks :D --Lyco499 01:48, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Easter Egg[edit source]

The first time Dog devoured a corpse, he said "OM NOM NOM". It was in the subtitles as well. Macman393 04:19, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Radio: 631.08Hz ULF[edit source]

Well, you know how you can select the three companion's collars as radios? Well so long as Dog isn't with you at the time you'll hear variations of "Hope the voice doesn't come back"/"want to go back" etc but I noticed that SPOILER even if you convince Dog and God to merge into one sane person that doesn't remember you beyond a feeling of gratitude, listening to the radio for his collar will still be the usual Dog randomly talking to himself. --Lyco499 23:37, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

Not female[edit source]

All of the female nightkins wear some chest covering, so obsidian doesn't get any nude complains, so he's a dude.

All supermutants look like males. There are no feminine-looking supermutants. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/08/Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 15:41, December 28, 2010 (UTC)

BUT they were humans before, watch lily, she was a grandma and she wears chest covering, even tough she doesn't looks femenine, tabitha is another example, also mariposa mutants keep their sexual organs intact so... he's definitely male.

I could have sworn Elijah referred to Dog as a "him" at some point? I think when I was told to stop him from blowing us all up...--Grassrunnerdaugher 20:50, June 23, 2011 (UTC)

OM NOM NOM?[edit source]

Anyone think the OM NOM NOM NOM easter egg is a refrence to heavy in TF2?

What? More TF2 heavy references? Nope. Om nom nom was the sound cookie monster made when he devoured a cookie. It has since been used in near everything. It is simply a sound effect. KaisarDragon 13:46, January 1, 2011 (UTC)

Well, since it has been used in near everything, it becomes more than a simple sound effect, see ? plus, the sound can only be heard with the wild wasteland trait, so, it IS a reference. But more a reference to the general meme than to TF2, imo--WikiSidd 02:53, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

You misunderstand. I just said it is the sound cookie monster made when he ate a cookie. That IS the reference. The fact that it is a sound effect has it being used in near everything involving devouring of food. Cookie Monster started Om Nom Nom worldwide well before the internet. KaisarDragon 20:36, January 12, 2011 (UTC)

Beartrap quote by God[edit source]

He just said "Wish I had a stealth boy instead of this beartrap." when i went into the sneak stance. I had given him a beartrap fist weapon and he was God at that moment. Can anyone confirm this? I already added it to notable quotes in the article btw. --BlitzKrieg-BoB 16:02, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

  • No, God says that Dog put a bear trap on his arm, and he's saying that he wished he had a stealth boy on his arm instead of the bear trap. --With care and happiness, Supermutantslayer450' YOU. LOSE. 16:09, February 27, 2011 (UTC)

Ah yes, Dog just told me he put a bear trap there to keep the voice away. Upon closer examination of his arm i noticed the beartrap underneath the metal chains. Im pretty sure that is what he was talking about now, but thank you for replying anyways. I still think I am gonna leave the comment in notable quotes since he has said that line like 3 times now. --77.171.8.164 16:06, February 28, 2011 (UTC)

i'm five minutes into the DLC and his spamming chat is going to make me have a split personality disorder soon.

Refuses to talk?[edit source]

I've encountered what appears to be a bug where I cannot open dialog options with him as either Dog or God, any attempt to do so ends with Dog asking to be let out of his cage, even when God is active. All of the other companion options work just fine, but as a result I cannot fire him for any of the others. Has anyone else had this problem? 24.161.174.219 08:17, May 23, 2011 (UTC) Does anybody else know a way of fixing the bug where Dog/God will listen to the recording, I played the recording and he won't talk to me, I have deleted the content "Dead Money" and have re-downloaded it but I still can't get him to talk, this is driving me insane, any help would be good.

I've had this same glitch. Still no idea what to do about it? 68.70.191.154 01:18, June 11, 2011 (UTC)

Clearing the Cache on an Xbox 360 does'nt make it work, deleting the title patch does'nt work either, and neither does re-downloading everything. I have had this same problem too and posted this just to save confusion. If somone knows a way to fix this please post in detail. Thanks. --Chase Christopher Coleman 09:54, June 18, 2011 (UTC)

"New Voice"[edit source]

Some personality disorders are less two people and more the fracturing of one. Treatment can fuse these two beings back together. I'm not sure if I'm correct, but I believe that the "new voice" Dog/God gets is acutally this. Dog and God coming together to be whoever they were before the illness.--Grassrunnerdaugher 17:01, June 6, 2011 (UTC)

All Roads[edit source]

On the back cover of All Roads below two men on the roof, there's graffiti on the building that says "GAWD" and then "DOG" right below it. Anyone else think maybe this is a reference to him/the two? -Ganondorf 01:42, June 21, 2011 (UTC)

Interesting[edit source]

This has to be the first video game I've ever played where one of the main characters was a cutter. If you get the best ending and reintegrate his personality, he even gets a bit emo at the end. Wunengzi 06:05, August 12, 2011 (UTC)

Weapons for Dog/God[edit source]

I haven't played Dead Money fully yet but do their exist any weapons in the DLC that I can actively give to him? I've preferred to keep him in his "God" state and wish to try and give him a better weapon to remedy his lack of combat skills but I'm unsure what their exists in the DLC that I could give to him. Could anyone provide a list or just a notion of what weapons can be found in the DLC? Draco122 14:58, August 25, 2011 (UTC)

The list of unique weapons is on the Dead Money page. I don't know why there is such a long list of implied weapons he can use in the Inventory section, since the frag grenade and sledgehammer were the only ones on that list I found in the DLC. GRPeng 03:52, October 28, 2011 (UTC)

Talkative[edit source]

I'm playing through Dead Money right now for the first time (I know, I know) and I can't get over how completely and utterly annoying this character is. He will not stop talking. It wouldn't be so bad if he'd had more than, what, three lines recorded? Is there any way to stop his incessant babbling, or is it something I've got to deal with? 24.144.139.46 09:35, 5 July 2013 (UTC)

Unfortunately, unless you use third party mods, there is no way to reduce his bark ratio. Tagaziel (talk) 09:55, 5 July 2013 (UTC)
